Some "believers" attempt to gain knowledge beyond what is openly revealed. They engage in practices like witchcraft, horoscopes, psychic readings, and tarot cards, with the intentions of outsmarting the Lord. Little do they realize that their endeavors are in vain, and they walk a cursed path that leads to humiliation and destruction.
They believe they can sneak behind God's back, much like Eve ate the forbidden apple, thinking they can access concealed information. But can they genuinely hide these abominations from the omniscient Lord Most High? Do they think they can play the field unnoticed?
The truth is, "He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision." (Psalm 2:4) God sees all, and their efforts to obtain forbidden knowledge only bring distress upon them.
The path to redemption is simple—repent. As Isaiah 55:6-7 advises, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon."
In seeking God's forgiveness and wisdom, we discover the true path to wisdom, truth, knowledge and salvation, far beyond the useless attempts to access knowledge found in the hands of God.
