The Dangers of the Ouija Board

Ouija boards are also known as witch boards or talking boards. The purpose of the ouija board is to conjure demons in order to obtain information. When one asks the board a question, one is really asking a devil a question and is giving that devil permission to come into his or her life.

What do you do if you have used a ouija board in the past? Any Christian who ever has used a ouija board or any type of divination or occult device needs to (1) ask God's forgiveness, (2) renounce the particular works of darkness by name (3) and tell the devils that entered via this sin to leave in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Also pray to close the "place" that you opened to the devils via the sin of using the ouija board, etc.

My Response to a Messageboard Post about Ouija Boards

Someone posted this letter to a messageboard:

I am just amazed at reading the experiences that others have had with this "game". More proof that the enemy is real. I know someone who came to the Lord because they were into witchcraft heavily. One evening she was taken with some friends to a meeting and they were trying to conjure up demons. When they did, and it freaked her OUT! She got saved because she said, "If THEY are real, then I know the OTHER side is real too." She did NOT want to be on the other side, so she gave her life to Christ. Sadly though, she has backslidden, and is now doing psychic readings and is a practicing lesbian. It is very sad. But I remember her testimony about how she got saved.

My response:


It is sad that she was drawn back in to the occult. I've seen this happen too often and it is usually because the person has not gotten clear from evil spirits due to their past occult involvement.

I don't know anyone who has been involved in the occult that has not picked up demons from it. The whole point of being in the occult or engaging in occult activities is to interact with demons. Is it any wonder these demons who were invited into the person's life hang around and hope they will be able to get an advantage somehow?

Christians must renounce out loud every occult activity, every occult book read, occult game played, occult movie viewed, etc. they can recall from before they were saved (or as the case may be, even after they were saved) Ask the Lord to help you remember, and I know he will take care of any that you do not remember. You are doing this to repent and clear the way for the Lord to force these spirits to leave your life forever. By renouncing these activities, you are removing every right these evil spirits have to stay in your life and do harm in their hidden, malevolent way.

I used the ouija board once or twice as a teen and you can believe the demons took it seriously even if I didn't. Christians must RENOUNCE the hidden things of dishonesty (See 2 Cor. 4:2) after they are saved. This step of renouncing is important to remove any basis for the evil spirits to be able to remain. . . hoping for to gain a foothold.

After the Christian has renounced all these things that have to do with Satan, he must tell the spirits he had fellowship with in the past to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. This is important. This does not happen automatically, just because we have asked Jesus to save us. We have to appropriate the authority Jesus has given us over all the power of the enemy and cleanse ourselves of all filthiness of flesh and spirit. See: Luke 10:19, 2 Cor. 7:1)

No names of spirits (unless you already know the name and in that case you should use it) are needed. The Lord knows who they are, and because of your obedience in renouncing the occult sins, and asking his forgiveness, he will force them to leave by the power of the Holy Spirit when you command them to leave in Jesus' name.

Remember, your authority "over all the power of the enemy" is conditional upon your refusal to fellowship with them in any form and also by your obedience in "casting off the works of darkness."

It's important to be repentant and committed to not engage in any more occult activities, because if you go back to the sin, they have the right to come back into your life and "the last state of that man is worse than the first." Luke 11:26
