"Should anyone turn to mediums and fortune-tellers and follow their wanton ways, I will turn against such a one and cut him of from his people." (Leviticus 20:6)
"When you come into the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you, you shall not learn to imitate the abominations of the peoples there. Let there not be found among you anyone who immolates his son or daughter in the fire, nor a fortune-teller, soothsayer, charmer, diviner, or caster of spells, nor one who consults ghost and spirits or seeks oracles from the dead. Anyone who does such things is an abomination to the Lord, and because such abominations the Lord, your God, is driving these nations out of your way." (Deuteronomy 18:9-12)
This account is a true story.
She told me that her mother with a companion was once consulted a fortune-teller who uses cards. The fortune-teller told her mother that she will die before she celebrates her birthday that year. To the mother's companion the fortune-teller predicted that on that year of a certain month, one of her loved ones or close to her will die.
Then the day of misfortune came. The mother's companion had a great horror and the prediction became real when her daughter died alone in a building. The daughter was left in a room who does not know at that time that the building she is in is in flames. But when she's trying to save her life, she choose to escape by riding an elevator. In this elevator she died. When the authorities found her inside the elevator, she was found petrified, burned to death. Her own arms was stretched out as if she's pushing something in front of her. She is the only one who did not survived the tragedy. The fortune-teller was right.
But not in the case of her mother. Her daughter is the one who recounted this story to me. Because the prediction of the fortune-teller did not worked. Because the mother on that same year celebrated her birthday - contrary to the fortune-teller's prediction that she will die one month before the day of her birthday.
So the family became at rest for the prediction did not happened. They were relaxed that the mother celebrated her birthday that year. But they did not expected that on that year, this mother will die.
The mother died on a plane accident. The airplane was shattered into pieces while on air and so its passengers. They were really shocked that this mother , this member of their family died - she died after one month after her birthday celebration.
On asking further the sharer whom I know personally, also told me that the fortune-teller was not only using cards or tarot cards, she also held or examined the palm of the two who consulter her.
I asked her if there was a thing they brought with them that was given by the fortune-teller and she said their was nothing.
I asked her if aside from palm examination and card reading, do the fortune-teller did strange things beside these and she said no, there's none.
And I asked her a few more questions. Then she and I came into conclusion (an opinion perhaps for we are not persons in authority when it comes to extraordinary phenomena) that the fortune-teller has a demon who is powerful in sending curses to those persons who consults this fortune-teller. Just the words or predictions of her can take away a person's life, how is this fortune-teller now?
According to the sharer, her relatives also knew the fortune-tellers name. Her name is Baby Resma. Resma is the surname. I do not know if the "Baby" is her first name or just the nick name.
