I wonder if any of my readers read the Frank Peretti books from the early 1990’s. Remember “This Present Darkness” and Piercing the Darkness?”
I was a very young Christian when I read those books. Over the little church in the small town, were demons plotting and talking about the people – the Christians and the unsaved. They schemed about various ways to keep the people away from the Lord. Their work was to make sure that many would lose their faith and eventually follow the evil one.
In these last days, the evil one is “inside” of many churches (I use the term ‘churches’ quite loosely) New age practices are an integral part of the church service. The Kundalini spirit has entered these churches and is masquerading as the Holy Spirit!
I have written about the Kundalini Spirit and how many Christians have brought this demonic spirit into their church by practicing Yoga.

Now, Bethel Church of Redding, CA have brought their own version of tarot cards into their service. I know – it sounds completely crazy. Unfortunately it’s true.
Charismatics Now Using “Christian” Tarot Card
Called “Destiny Reading Cards,” charismatics – some associated with Bethel Church in Redding, California – are engaging in what is essentially tarot card reading. You can see the clip below, and then we’ll explain.
They call it a “reading” and refer to the program as “Christalignment.” They don’t do “predictions,” but they will help empower your destiny rather than control it. Using what is essentially tarot cards, they do a “reading” about relations, jobs and issues to help people “make better decisions in the future.”
The tarot is a pack of playing cards made originally in the 1400s in Italy and France, which are meant to help a psychic “divine” truth either about the future or a present situation (some assume the name is taken from the Taro river in Italy). Explicitly occultic tarots include a 78 card pack (as opposed to all the other kinds of tarot, which are implicitlyoccultic). The charismatics at Bethel Church and elsewhere have commandeered this satanic practice and seek to help people gain insight into their life from these “readings.”
Mind, Body and Spirit” is a group put together by fans (left) of Bethel Redding, and includes various partners, including the parents of Bethel missionary, Ben Fitzgerald. Students from Bethel Church in Redding were helping with their “readings.”
Jenny and Ken Hodge are hosting an event, “Taking Jesus into Counter Cultures” on March 10. They have modeled the practice of “taking Jesus into counter cultures” by doing their Christianized tarot cards at events like porn expos.
You can see on their public Facebook pagetheir closeness with Bethel Church in Redding. You can see on their December 7 post their advertising of Christalignment (the top video) at an upcoming event. source

“He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger” (2 Chronicles 33:6).
