Are Tarot Cards Dangerous?
The Truth of Psychic Power
What are the real dynamics of a "psychic" reading? What happens when a psychic gives a person a reading. The answer will shock you: one or more demons speak with the psychic and tell enough information about the life and troubles of the visitor to gain some trust. Once the trust is attained, the demon will use an amateur or ignorant tarot card reader, psychic, or any other supernatural conduit to speak a curse against the visitor.
Tarot cards, crystal balls, speaking with the dead, astrology... all involve interactions with demonic spirits. Most psychical dabblers have no idea this is what happens. Regular participants, however, are very aware that it is "spirits" that help them. A true expert understands full well it is demons behind the scenes!
Once the door is open to them, they enter in to bring curses against the visitor. Look for the testimony of ex-high satanist John Ramirez of New York. He was a "psychic". He saw plainly that demons gave him information. This is because demons are assigned to individuals to follow them. Those demons know a lot, and can give details about a passed spouse; where Uncle Frank hid the money; and special things that "only he would know". These are called familiar spirits. Demons are more intelligent, wicked, and cunning than most men and women.
I fought a Warlock Freemason in Philadelphia for years. He thought he controlled a very powerful demon. However, that demon actually controlled him. He thought he drained life force from others for his own use. What he did not realize was that the demon actually fooled him into believing he was in charge. But, the demon was in charge the entire time! That demon brought ruin to his life. He stabbed his own wife. Both his children used drugs and had social problems involving promiscuity, irresponsibility, and the like. His business failed in disgrace.
Everything later worked out for him... at least it appears that way. The truth is, like Aleister Crowley, most satanists die broke. Most do not know that Crowley lamented in his last days, "I think I have been deceived." The devil told him he would rise as the Antichrist and rule the world. As he was dying, Crowley realized he believed a lie.
Demons Deceive and Gain Rights to Possess.
A psychic gives a "reading", which is actually a curse. Ramirez gave this example: "Then the psychic tells the woman that within three months her children will be on drugs and her husband will leave her. Then, the demon who told the psychic the information he needed to gain the woman's trust is sent out to work all those things. Later, the woman returns for help and I charge as much as I can, and all I do is recall the demon."
Not every amateur ouija board, tarot card, and astrology user realizes or comprehends the unseen dynamics of what they are doing... but the door is opened to demons in all cases. Demons do not care if a person participates out of ignorance, curiosity, or full understanding- they are very legalistic. They will even claim a right to enter based on merely being present and saying nothing while others do what is wrong!
How to Break Demonic Rights
My friend Alyona from Kyiv once visited the tomb of Stalin on a class trip. She was a young girl, a student in a communist high school. She had no choice but to go. When they arrived, she only took off her shoes like the others did before entering. However, she felt uncomfortable, and did not go in, and did not worship the image of Stalin, as did the others (paying homage is a form of worship). However, a few years after glasnost and the fall of the USSR, she attended a 6-month deliverance training seminar in Bulgaria. There, leaders cast out the spirit of communism (a demon) from her. The demon was forced to tell the leaders how it gained a right to enter. The demon listed the act of removing the shoes.
To break the rights of demons for doing these things, you must: 1. Apologize to God the Father for doing what He said not to do. The apology should be well-intentioned. Mockers should expect nothing. Then, 2. Command any and all demonic works, bondages, snares, traps, chords, (and whatever else you know of that started about the same time as your participation in demonic/"supernatural" things) to be broken. Ask the Holy Spirit of God to bring to mind anything the devils have done against you because of those things.
Remember: demons rarely manifest in the manner portrayed by Hollywood. Typically, there will be some or all of these indicators: uncontrolled anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, lust, homosexuality (usually enters through rape or molestation as a child), and other behaviors that have a negative, potentially deadly effect on life.

Additional: Look for audio teachings of Win Worley, Derek Prince, William Lau and other deliverance ministers. Learn how to break curses and destroy the works of devils against you.
Here are some web sites that teach about deliverance:
www.watchmanradio.com (They have some interviews with John Ramirez)
Omegaman Radio with Shannon Davis.
Russ Dizdar (interviews, articles, and podcasts in many places)
Pat Holliday (many articles, as well as a call-in deliverance online radio show)
King Saul and the Witch of Endor
Can God Talk to you through Tarot Cards?
Some who found this article searched for "can God talk to you through tarot cards?" The answer is: God used an ass to talk to Balaam. He used a burning bush to talk to Moses.
God can talk and has talked to men through neutrals. However, look at the case of King Saul and Samuel the prophet. Saul used a fortune telling method, and he was cursed, his family was cursed, and the nation was cursed.
If God talks to us in prayer, in visions, and in dreams, why is there any need to risk using a necromancer, tarot cards, palm reading, or any other thing that commonly involves demons?
The high priest prophesied about Jesus that it is better that one should die than all. He proclaimed a true prophetic word, fulfilled soon thereafter when Jesus hung on the cross. But, the office of high priest was established by God, making it a blessed venue. Even though those people were apostate at the time, and the group as a whole wanted Jesus dead. This is not true of divination and Tarot cards are not blessed. We should not expect God to speak through a Tarot deck. Anything is possible with God. But, prayer is the preferred medium of communion.
You should not expect God to speak to you through tarot cards. A demon will show you the truth in the beginning (as best he can), in order to gain your trust. Once that trust is gained, the demon will abuse that trust to lead you into all kinds of problems. It will orchestrate pain and setbacks in your life. It will invite other demons, too.
God does not speak through tarot cards.
How to Get Rid of Tarot Cards
If you owned a set of tarot cards, or if you currently have a set in your possession, you need to get rid of them in order to be set free. Throw them away. If you have the possibility, burn them somewhere outside your home. However, just throwing them in the trash can outside the home will work. If you don't burn them, cut them up into small, unusable pieces.
This alone will not free you from demons. Once their right to you is removed (the physical cards themselves), you must also remove the sin. This is done by apologizing to God for having participated with fortune telling rather than trusting in God to guide you and asking for forgiveness in Jesus Christ. (It is the death of Jesus, the spilled blood of Jesus, which atones for our sins.)
Finally, once the physical right and the sin right are removed, command any and every demonic force to be removed from your life. Here is an example prayer:
"Dear Father in Heaven, you are mighty and pure. Father, forgive me for using tarot cards and any other fortune telling devices. I have removed the physical items from my home as best I could remember and find them. I do not want those things. If I locate any other items in the future, I will remove them as well.
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I break and bind any and every demonic force that may have entered my life as a result of my participation in these things, either through ignorance, curiosity, or willing knowledge. I break every chain, snare, rope or net the enemy may have placed on or against me. I remove every stumbling block, plot, plan, and trap the enemy is working or planning against me based on these past acts. I close every door I opened to sorcery, magic, or fortune telling. I do not want them. I want Jesus. I want my Father in Heaven. I want the Holy Spirit to be my teacher. I thank you, Father, that you have heard my prayers as you promise in scripture."
You can pray this once or twice or as often as you feel the enemy attack you. Command them away. Once the enemy's rights are removed, they must go. Adapt the prayer to fit your situation. Peace.
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on July 27, 2015:
Colleen: Thank you for the warm comment. You make salient points. I do want to add this: We can prove God exists. There is a lot of proof. In fact, the proof is overwhelming. First, the mere existence of reality proves there is a creator. Do we have anything that was not created by a sentient human? Cars, houses, iphones, and even ice cream are all produced, ("created") by people. Next, when we command demons out "in the name of Jesus", they obey and run off. I have seen the deaf set free so they could hear, I have even seen the dead raised. And, prophetic dreams and prophetic messages/warnings are another way God provides proof.
One of my favorite proofs is the transformation of people who receive God. Specifically, my own change! I was angry, a fighter, a woman chaser. But, Jesus gave me peace. Jesus healed my wounds and became my best friend. It is the love of Jesus, of God, that is the greatest and best proof.
Again, thank you for adding to the discussion. Peace to you.
Colleen Diemer from Florida on July 24, 2015:
Wow very difficult to read these comments. Excellent article. I love it. I believe what you are saying. It is simply ego that would make a person deny God and think they "know better" or more. I get messages all the time. It is all correct. It is peoples lost loved one's or mine "telling" me things I could never kmow. I only want to help people I am 100% God! So it would definetly make perfect sense for the evil forces to use me through trickery and have me think I am doing good. If God has a message for someone I am quite sure he can give it without little old me. lol . I would rather be blessed and safe honoring God than trying to prove I am right about some stupid cards. They say 'the road to hell is paved with good intentions" where did that saying come from? Truth is it is the exact logic as does God exist or do you believe in God? you can't see or touch or prove you just need to have faith. The arguments here are the same. You are just going to have to pick a side. When you are a true follower of God and hear this knowing how Satan or evil is smarter than you. you better run and pick your side quick! I am team Man from Modesto
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on May 31, 2014:
Drew, I believe in God. So, it is reasonable for me to quote the Bible. You, contrarily CANNOT use scripture. Scripture says that a person cannot understand it without God. Since you reject God, you then do not have God, and you do not understand scripture.
You may want to argue you only use scripture because I do. But, when you introduce scripture as a basis for argument, scripture says you don't understand it. So, I win automatically.
Imagine it as a car race. I know how to put fuel in the car, maintain it, ignite the fuel burning process, release the brakes, and turn the wheel. You, on the other hand, are still arguing there is no such thing as a car, freeways, combustion engines or even tires. You think mechanics are deluded.
You cannot possibly win an auto race against me under these conditions. And, you cannot win a debate against me using scripture.
You are like a man standing beside the car, swearing there is no car, chin uplifted, hands on hips. Meanwhile, a crowd too numerous to count is pointing at the car, pointing at the transportation system, the vast supply system that provides parts for cars, and all the other evidence. For each, you say, "You are simple-minded. There is no such thing as an auto." That is how it looks to us.
Marx died a Satanist. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1121228/p...
Drew on May 28, 2014:
Oh please, everyone knows Marx was an atheist and you can't believe in Satan without first believing in God, who created and banished him.
Regardless of who made Communism popular / mainstream, my point stands that Acts 4 and 5 clearly highlight the primary tenets of Communism being willed by the apostles and created by the Almighty Father. The anti-wealth and redistribution sentiments are also highlighted even further with the famous quote of "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than it is for a rich man to enter the kindgom of heaven." and the parable of "The Rich Man and Lazarus", just to name a few.
So neither mortal you named "created" it when in reality, God beat them both to it. Over and over the Bible condemns excessive wealth and greed, man having dominion over man - the tenets of Capitalism, all preaching that wealth is meant to be given away, not to be hoarded. "Unity", "Communism", call it what you will, but at the end of the day, they have the same mechanics, and no being can take credit for something God made.
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on May 27, 2014:
Drew: That is called "unity." Satan works to duplicate everything God made. Every major religion has a statement similar to "You can tell a tree by it's fruit." Even common sense leads us to this conclusion. Regardless of the name people give it, and regardless of what they tell you something is, it is, in fact, whatever it truly does.
Communism is a murderous beast. Everywhere it goes, people are killed in global war numbers.
In case you don't know: Communism was created by Satanist Fredrick Engels. He taught it to Karl Marx, who also later became a Satanist.
And, for the record, I studied all the groovy New Age trash. Tarot, past life recall, OBE at will, lucid dreaming, mind control... I practiced everything- and achieved much of the goals of New Agers, including 24-hour consciousness. What I learned is this: Christ is the answer. Whatever you are seeking or think you are seeking, the real missing thing is the Peace and Love of Almighty God- the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This is the God who gave His ONLY son, to die on the cross (not get off it and be replaced). This son rose on the 3rd day to fulfill centuries-old prophecies about the "Promised One", aka "The Redeemer." This is Jesus and Jesus is the ONLY way to eternal life.
Communism and Tarot condemn themselves. Just look at the fruit.
-As if I were your true Brother, MFM. Peace.
Drew on May 16, 2014:
The spirit of Communism is a demon you say? Then explain why the New Testament of the Holy Bible in the Book of Acts chapter 4, verses 32 through 35, clearly shows that the first Christians lived in Communist style community with the apostles assuming what would be now the government's role of redistributing wealth:
"The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need."
None claimed that any possession was their but they had everything in common, as in common / communal / public ownership. Right there in black and white, redistribution of wealth and communal ownership of everything - if that's not Communism, then I don't know what it. So unless you're willing to call the apostles demons, I advise you stop being so condemnation happy of matters you know nothing about.
Then in Acts 5, Ananias and his wife die at the feet of the apostle Peter when confronted about both hoarding some of the proceeds of the sale of their home and lying about it which shows the Lord God as an active enforcer of Communism by taking the breath of life away from them as Ananias "breathed his last" upon hearing Peter say tell him that he didn't just lie to men but to God.
So in the end, the only real demon I see here is you, the false teacher. Next time, do your homework before condemning Communism or Tarot or anything for that matter.

That is true, Sylvia. I'm just informing here, not enforcing.
Sylvia Sky from USA on March 28, 2014:
We all are free to hold and practice our beliefs.
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on March 04, 2013:
Your position may seem valid to a computer. However, the spiritual truth, which is the reason I share this- out of love - is that fortune telling is a substitute for a relationship with God. And, it is both dangerous and inferior.
The primary consequence is, you damage your relationship with God. Second, a person, standing alone, has not ability to peer into the future. This 3-dimensional plane does not allow for that. It is impossible. To see into a future place, information must somehow transfer supernaturally through a higher plane, one not bound by time. In the "heavens", there is no time as we know it here.
Since God opposes fortune telling, we can be sure He is not encouraging it by speaking to you.
YOU can't do it. GOD is not in it. That leaves one source: The Kingdom of Satan.
Satan is the Father of lies, and an artful deceiver. I understand people are deceived. I walked many years in deception, just as you. However, the love of Christ set me free. Now, I am speaking out to help others.
Again, this message is sent to you as from a loving brother, not an accuser. Peace.
JayM on March 04, 2013:
A candle can be used for prayer or for demonic ritual, a knife can be used to help create a meal for loved ones or to murder someone. Tarot cards and divination tools have no power in themselves, they are simply tools. Anyone who truly reads the tarot, knows they are only using their own innate compassion and wisdom. If you're receiving outside help, then you're not doing it right. Fear of the unknown prompts articles like this one.
Shelly Epperly from Vancouver,WA on March 21, 2012:
JJ I don't believe that at all. We all return to love. Sometimes residual energy remains that may be negative or playful. That is what I think. I agree to disagree. Have a fabulous day.
JJ on March 19, 2012:
mepperly that's because demons are lying fallen angels who sometimes come "as an angel of light" But their true nature is only to Steal, Kill, Destroy.
Shelly Epperly from Vancouver,WA on January 25, 2012:
I am a tarot card reader and have never had a bad scary experience with demons... I guess I would have to believe in them to go there... I think it is sad to think that a medium that is helping a person connect with a lost loved one is connecting with anything evil. I have no fear of any of it.
Deborah Brooks Langford from Brownsville,TX on December 24, 2011:
This kind of thing always scared me.. Very good HUB.. Thanks for the information.. I have never had anything to do with things like this..
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on December 23, 2011:
I just finished reading "Out of the Devil's Cauldron" by John Ramirez last night. In the last chapter, he relates a meeting with Daisy, a woman who had been with him in "the religion" worshiping the "saints". He told her to get out of it, repent, and remove all the saint icons from her home. She rebutted him saying that all these were angels and they served God. Ramirez told her, "God doesn't need any help." Daisy listened, and got free after a few days. She died only two weeks later of cancer. God brought her an opportunity before she left! God is warm, loving, and generous. He wants all of us to turn from evil ways and embrace Him, and to be with Him in eternity, in Heaven.
ShyeAnne from Qualicum Bay, British Columbia, Canada on December 23, 2011:
I toss and read the Motherpeace tarot deck. The Motherpeace deck delivers kind and gentle messages and offers positive suggestions while addressing the negative in a straightforward and problem solving way. I believe it depends on the person doing the reading and what their demeanor and thoughts are toward the tarot in the first place.
Man from Modesto (author) from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California) on September 11, 2011:
Emveme7: It is true that some practitioners of the dark arts are able to control the demon, and that some satanists do not become possessed. The Freemason's demon I fought was also controlled by another man who lived in deep West Philadelphia. That man could project, and also knew how to possess another human being.
Some Christian deliverance ministers have reported arriving to exorcise people recently saved out of satanism- only to find they had no demons. This is attributed to the fortitude, the mettle, of the individual, not to years of experience. Many people experiment with wicked things and nothing happens to them. Too many, however, become demon possessed.
Emveme7 from North on September 11, 2011:
I been doing readings for over 35 years and I found that the individuals that usually have the most problems are the ones that are playing at it. If you are "experimenting" with these things I suggest you find someone who's willing to teach you how to do it the correct way, a mentor. Understand, that 'just for fun' is not a term you should use when you do this, it comes with consequences.
