As the news of former President Donald Trump's historic indictment continues sending shockwaves through the world, it was only a matter of time before media outlets began the interview cycle with adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Sitting down with Olivia Nuzzi, a reporter who wrote the cover story on Daniels for New York magazine, Daniels started performing occultic practices before the interview even took place.
"Stormy Daniels saged the room and shuffled the oracle deck. It was the evening of Apr. 1, and the woman at the center of the legal drama that led to the first criminal indictment of a U.S. president had agreed to ask the guides for help to see more clearly the past, the present, and what she calls 'the potential or likely outcome,'" wrote Nuzzi.
Saging is when dried sage is burned in a room and is meant to purify it of evil spirits.
The Bible mentions the burning of incense as an offering to the Lord. It is such a holy practice for the atonement of sins for the Jews, that the priest would take coals from the fire on the altar before the Lord and burn two handfuls of incense in the Holy of Holies according to Leviticus 16.
It does not mention sage, nor does it state that the incense was casually used as a ward against evil spirits. The incense was used as a sin covering, which Christians believe has been replaced by the spilled blood of Jesus.
People should not doubt the ability for anyone to connect to demonic spirits. It is easy, however, to dismiss an event such as the porn star at the center of Donald Trump's indictment trying to summon spirits.
But then something did happen. A spirit did answer Daniels.
According to Nuzzi, "She shuffled the deck again. There between her palms, the force field of energy swelled. She dealt the cards. As if by magic, the room shifted. My ears began to ring. Tension spread across my forehead. My eyes filled with tears. I looked across the table and met the dealer's gaze. She was crying, too."
The interview continues with Daniels shuffling and reading cards, and in turn Nuzzi promotes this as a practice people should perform to discover how things can play out in their lives.
"Because it's real," Daniels says. And she is 100% correct in that.
The summoning and discerning of spirits is a practice as old as time, and was summarily banned by the Lord God.
Yet throughout the Bible, from the Old to the New Testament, there are warnings against seeking and trusting deceitful spirits and the calamity that will come from it.
Israel turned to Baal, Ashtoreth and Moloch and this rejection of God brought about its eventual destruction.
The apostles in the New Testament warn against the spirits so that believers will not sin and live a righteous life worthy of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross.
Christians must open their eyes to the spiritual battle that is taking place all around them in their everyday life.
Jesus has called His followers to action, not apathy. To take part in a culture that is revolting because, how else will it change if no one brings Jesus to its forefront?
Jesus is the answer to all of society's maladies and Christians must share this lifesaving remedy to a dying world until the very day that Christ returns for His people.
