The Other Realm

Our ancestors were tribal originally and in that time were aware of another realm. It became part of their worship and culture. They were helped by that connection, but also had to pay a price in return. This usually involved rites that appeased their contacts through inhuman cruelty. They often were led to believe they were dealing with dead ancestors, who went from nice people to demanding and wicked. That doesn't make anysense.

Today we are surrounded by a modern world of things that instead means we rely on a technological system to survive. Watch Bear Grylls to see how much we need mollycoddling. The spirit realm is largely ignored except for a few. My step-grandmother could predict the future with unerring accuracy. My mother asked to be trained to also do it, but was told do not try. The power that she tapped into frightened her, she was scared of it.

Why would such a force be like that when all it gave her was foreknowledge? Is it possible it was the same spiritual realm that our ancestors found to be on the one hand helpful but on the other so sadistic and cruel? The answer doesn't come from me but from a book that was written at the time ancient people had to deal with such matter more openly.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 reads (NIV): 9 When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

The reason is because such behaviour brings us into contact with evil, sadistic spirits, even if they try to appear helpful and benevolent. So how should we contact the other realm? There are numerous references in the Bible that show it is through humble, sincere prayer. That way we speak to our Creator, our Heavenly Father, not the wicked rebels that also inhabit that unseen world. In that way we please our father for taking the right side of the divide.

What a wonderful world we were given by our loving heavenly Father
