Society and the world has openly accepted the occult. Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings are very popular with the lost and perishing of this world. Many people have been enticed and bewitched by Satan's occultism. On TV and the movies the occult is glorified. Satan and his people recently popularized two blockbuster movies on the occult. Both Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books and movies glorify the evil world of the occult. Plus the demonic books and movies are best sellers. People are flocking to the pied piper sound of the occult. Many people have literally been bewitched by the occult. This includes people who profess to be Christians.

In this tract we will look at some of the goals and accomplishments that Satan and his people have done in glorifying the world of the occult.


Children have been targeted to be brainwashed by the occult. Harry Potter is an action type of story that has great appeal to children and adults as well. Lord of the Rings is more hard core occultism geared for more mature people. Both themes involve wizards, spells, witchcraft, and other forms of occultism. Both stories have "good" occultists prevailing over the "bad" occultists. White witchcraft wins over black witchcraft. Because "good" wins over "evil" some believe there is a moral value to Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. Satan is happy that many are being indoctrinated into his world of the occult. Little do some fail to realize the fact that ALL the occult is evil! There is no such thing as a good witch, a good wizard, or good spells. All occultism is an abomination to God!

Children are being encouraged to read the Harry Potter books at a young age. Schools get the children reading these demonic books as early as the 4th grade. Of course the Bible is forbidden in schools but the wizard, Harry Potter is acceptable. This year under the Christmas trees many children have received the demonic Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings books or movies. Some give the demonic books to children to encourage them to develop their reading skills. Parents do not care that Harry Potter is Satanic occultism. Instead they are happy if little junior improves his reading ability while reading a Potter or Lord of the Rings book. This is a very sad real-life example, but I've heard of a professing Christian mother who wanted her daughter to read Harry Potter. This mother had enjoyed reading Harry Potter and wanted her daughter to enjoy the occult as well. Its all harmless fun and fantasy to this foolish woman. The Bible gives severe warnings about leading children away from God:

Matt 18
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.


Many are justifying the occult and their enjoyment of it. People who claim to be Christian and who ought to know better are involving themselves with the occult. They are enjoying Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. Many who are enjoying the occult and are rationalizing reasons to justify their acceptance of occult entertainment.

Here is an example of blind justification of evil: The most foolish argument I've heard is the claim that the writer of Lord of the Rings is a Christian therefore his occult books are OK to read. Let's answer that dumb argument right away! NO he is not a Christian! The man is a lost hellbound Roman Catholic who loved spells, witchcraft, wizardy, and other forms of the occult. His demonic fruit in Lord of the Rings speaks very clearly that he is not one of God's people. The authors of occult entertainment such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings are nothing more that Satanic pied pipers leading people to the devil. They are leading people away from God and the Bible and straight into the occultic arms of Satan. Why would a professing Christian even attempt to justify the occult. The only reason I can think of is these people never were saved in the first place!

Another argument to justify these evil occultic books and movies is that they help the kids read better. Learning to read better is a good skill that will help the child throughout his school life. There is nothing wrong with children developing good reading skills and no one will argue with that fact. However, using and reading about the occult is not the way to do it! Many people dismiss the warnings of occult involvement as nothing more than fantasy and harmless fun. Myself, I do not think an abomination to God can be considered harmless fun.

People who attempt to justify their enjoyment of the occult are showing to everyone the evil fruit of their heart. Their lost, hellbound heart, which is far from God, is manifesting very evil works as they enjoy the occult. By choosing to accept the occult a person is choosing to be enemies with God and friends with the devil! Here is what the Bible says:

Matt 12
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.


Some professing Christians are having trouble standing strong against the occult. Some have been deceived and have gone with the worldly system and have accepted Harry Potterism and Lord of the Rings as occult entertainment for themselves and their families. Others have no backbone and are unable to take a stand against this mighty occultic move of Satan in these last days. Ten short years ago the rejection of the occult was a non-issue. Christians knew that the occult was evil. There were no arguments. The occult is evil and it is an abomination against God. People who love the Lord will reject Satan's occult. However, today many are stumbling and are unsure about the occult. People involved in churches and Christian schools now have the problem of the occult in their midst. Many children and families are involved in occultic entertainment. Some professing Christians are afraid to take action against it or to give warnings to those deceived by it. God's Word encourages Christians to stand fast and to stand strong in these evil days. If you are saved and have been bewitched by the occult, then now is the time to repent and to take a stand against this evil.

Eph 6
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;


There are many tares and deceivers from within the professing Christian church. False Christian tares have openly accepted all the occult Satan has brought their way. They openly approve of the occult and encourage others to get involved. They have strong condemnation for any who would say anything against their freedom to enjoy the occult. The tares proudly claim their "freedom" in Christ. They claim that they are free from legalism and pharisee-ism and can enjoy the occult as harmless fun. The tares love Harry Potter books and movies. The Lord of the Rings is great entertainment to the tares. They think nothing of the fact that the occult is an abomination to God.

The tares scream out: Pharisee, legalistic, unloving and other insults as they justify their rebellion and hatred of God. To the false Christian tare the occult is harmless fun to be enjoyed! To God the occult is a great sin and an abomination. The occult lovers profess that the know God but in their words and actions they deny Him. Here is what the Bible says about such people:

Titus 1
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.


This great move toward acceptance of the occult is part of the last days falling away or the great apostasy. People are growing distant to God and the Bible. Many are losing their discernment about the evils and dangers of the occult. Before the antichrist rises to power there will be a great falling away and rejection of God and the Bible. Many people will reach the stage of utter rejection of the things of God while they accept all the devil offers.

After the rapture, when the antichrist comes to power, the lost people of the world will openly accept him and his evil policies. The foundation of the kingdom of the antichrist will be rejection of God, rejection of the Bible, rejection of God's people, blasphemy against God, acceptance of the occult, and acceptance of all forms of sexual immorality. Everything evil and perverted will be welcome in the kingdom of the antichrist. Right now we are witnessing a major movement in the world to accept the things of the devil. Occult entertainment such as Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings is part of that process. All this should not be a surprise to the Christian. The Bible clearly has warned of the last days falling away.

2 Thess 2
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Amos 8
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

We are living in the days where the Word of God is rejected while the occult and the things of the devil are accepted. Expect this trend to continue and it will climax during the evil reign of the antichrist.


The acceptance of the occult is one of the many signs marking the end of the age and the soon return of the Lord Jesus. There will be many things happening in the world before the rapture of the church. Wars, rumors of wars, pestilence, weather judgments, and acceptance of the devil's occult is one of many signposts marking the end of the age. Soon the Lord Jesus will return to earth. The devil knows his time is short and he is working and implementing his plans and policies quickly. Once he gets people to accept the occult then the rest of accepting the devils evil will come easy. It is easy for a person to openly reject God, His Word, and His people if the occult is accepted. People who love and accept the occult are the enemies of God. Here are some verses warning about the conditions currently in the world in these last days:

Matt 24
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

2 Tim 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The world is quickly heading toward a complete rejection of anything associated with God or His Word. Acceptance of the occult is preparing people for the day when the occultic antichrist starts programs to kill and destroy Christians and anything of God.


God's attitude towards the occult has never changed. It is a great sin and evil. Here is what the Bible says:

Deut 18
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

As you can see there is no room for debate. The occult with its spellcasting, witchcraft, divination, wizardry, etc is all an abomination to God. All the Satanic and occultic garbage is not harmless fun and entertainment. It is deadly dangerous and will be avoided and rejected by all those who belong to and love the Lord Jesus.

Sadly, many do not love the Lord in these last days before the return of the Lord Jesus! Instead they hate the Lord and their rebellion and love of evil is manifested in their acceptance of Satan's occultism.

This next section is for the un-repentant who will not be convinced. These people enjoy the occult and will not reject this evil from the devil.


If you have attended the movies and enjoyed the occult books and allowed your children to do the same, you are an enemy of God. Or if you or your children have read the satanic books and delight in the occult, spells, wizardry, and witchcraft, you are an enemy of God! Then know this: YOU ARE NOT SAVED! YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN! Stop kidding yourself! You love committing a sin that God considers an abomination. Therefore you do not belong to God and have aligned yourself with Satan.

Go ahead and laugh and mock when warned and corrected. You are a God rejecting, unteacheable, hellbound sinner. It doesn't matter if you attend some kind of a church. You are lost and perishing. Just one heartbeat from hell would be a good description of your life right now! Don't be self-deceived and think that you can eat from the occultic table of the devil and profess to be a Christian at the same time. Here is what the Bible says:

1 Cor 10
20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

Should you decide to choose the Lord and reject the devil then you may have some house cleaning to do. If you really love the Lord then clean out your house from all the evil things of the devil. Get together all the Harry Potter books, Lord of the Rings, all evil games (ouji boards etc), Satanic rock music. Then, once collected, destroy all this evil material. Do not sell it so someone else can be oppressed by the devil. Destroy all the things of the devil that can be found in your home!

If you have been deceived and now realize that Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings is evil then take action right now. Do what the Bible says to do with the things of the occult! Destroy it all from your home and your life!.

Below is a New Testament example of people who did some house cleaning and removed the things of Satan!

Acts 19
18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.
19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.


Matt 12
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

People must choose: God or Satan?

Those who accept the occult are rejecting God and accepting Satan. What is your choice? Make it today!
