Dream Cards and Psychic Healing

Dream Cards Back to magic charms. A few posts back, I wrote about the growing popularity of magic charms and spells in the apostolic-prophetic movement, like a property cleansing kit that’s supposed to rid your property of curses (still listed as a “top-selling product” on the Elijah List). Well, yesterday, the Elijah List sent another e-mail advertising another product that has more in common with the occult than biblical Christianity.

Barbie Breathitt Headshot Dream Cards. That’s right. For $10 a piece, you can buy cards that list the meanings of common dream symbols, like different types of animals, people and places (pictured above). If you buy all 12 cards, you can even get a discount: $96. Brought to you by Barbie Breathitt, of Breath of the Spirit Ministries, Inc. (pictured here). Dream interpretation has never been easier.

If the dream cards aren’t bad enough, it gets worse. One of the cards has a chart that lists areas of the body along with colors and musical notes that are supposed to bring healing to those areas.

What? Where is the biblical basis for this practice?

Ellie Crystal Headshot There isn’t a biblical basis. The Elijah List doesn’t even try to give one in its ad. But there is an occult and New Age basis. See, for example, this New York psychic’s Web site (pictured here), where she lists colors and the areas of the body they heal. Or see the Psychic Healing Room, which also talks about the healing power of colors and music.

Of course, we see throughout the Bible that God does give people dreams, and He gives His people the ability to interpret the meanings of those dreams. But where in the Bible do we see anything like dream cards? The people who interpret dreams in Scripture, like Daniel and Joseph, are given supernatural insight from God. They certainly don’t consult cards to find generic symbolic meanings. Can you imagine Daniel saying, “Just one second, King Nebuchadnezzar. You said a statue? Well, according to this chart here, a statue represents …”?

And we certainly don’t see Daniel or Joseph creating cards with dream interpretations and selling them. This reminds me of Tarot cards.

What we do see is that both Daniel and Joseph make it clear that the source of their interpretations is God. See Genesis 40:8, 41:16; Daniel 2:17-23, 27-28.

As far as healing colors and sounds: well, of course, music and colors can affect people’s moods. For example, music can be soothing, and a pastel-painted room (like a soft blue) might be a more relaxing environment than a brightly painted room (like red). But this is far different than claiming that a certain color or musical note can bring healing to a specific organ or body part.

Steve Shultz Headshot It’s not my goal to pick on professing Christians, but people like Steve Shultz (pictured here) — the founder and publisher of the Elijah List — need to be called to account for their shameful promotion of such products. I believe true prophets of God (which Shultz claims to be) would be appalled by these dream cards.

The Elijah List e-mails are so full of unbiblical (and often harmful) teachings that I’ve decided to add a separate category on my blog that will focus just on this ministry. See the bar on the right side of my blog for the new category called “Elijah List.”

    Dera Holly: The Bible says in the last days these types of people would appear with their heresy, Apostosy, appearing as angels of light. Born again Believers know this is the work of satan and his demons of darkness and their satanic theology.

    These people do one thing consistantly well and that is, and I include their ring leaders such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloris Copeland, Oral Roberts etc., they set themselves up for more reasons for The Lord’s eternal punishment on Judgement day towrds themselves Rev 20:11-15.

    Thye need to repent of their black magic and deception and ask The Lord to heal and save them before it is to late. Hebrews 9:27.

    In Christ

    Isa 2:6
    For thou hast forsaken thy people…… the house of Jacob, because…..

    They are filled with….. customs from the east…. and are soothsayers…. like the Philistines….. and they strike hands with…. the children of foreigners.

    1Co 10:11
    Now these things….. happened unto them….. by way of example.
    And they were written…. for our admonition…… upon whom the ends of the ages are come.
    1Co 10:12
    Wherefore let him…. that thinketh he standeth…. take heed lest he fall.

    2Th 2:3
    Let no man deceive you by any means…. for that day shall not come (The Lords return)

    Except there come a falling away first…..

    And that man of sin be revealed….. the son of perdition.

    2Th 2:4
    Who opposeth and exalteth himself…. above all that is called God…. or that is worshipped.

    So that he as god….. sitteth in the temple of God…. shewing himself that he is God.

    ~~~~~Where is the temple of God today?….amongst the body of believers ~~~~~

    2Th 2:9
    Even him…. whose coming is after the working of Satan….. with all power and signs and lying wonders.

    AND…. with all deceivableness…. of unrighteousness….. in them that perish….

    Because they received not the love of the truth…..that they might be saved.

    2Th 2:11
    And for this cause God…. shall send them strong delusion…. that they should….. believe a lie.

    That they all might be damned…… who believed not the truth…. but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Isa 66:4
    I also will choose their delusions…… and will bring their fears upon them.

    Because when I called……none did answer.

    When I spake…… they did not hear.

    But they did evil before mine eyes…… and chose that in which….. I delighted not.

    Because they have choosen not to hear the word of the Lord


    Haggard Replacement Promotes Contemplative Prayer and the Emerging Church

    After the recent exposure of Ted Haggard, the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) has replaced Haggard with interim president, Leith Anderson.

    Anderson is the pastor of Wooddale Church in Minneapolis, which is the former church of Lighthouse Trails author Brian Flynn, (author of Running Against the Wind).

    Choosing Anderson for the NAE president may help to speed up the infiltration of contemplative spirituality into the evangelical church—Wooddale Church has been promoting it for some time.

    They have went from bad to worse in one giant leap….

    Sad days we are in….

    Jeremiah 23:32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” says the Lord, “and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies and by their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all,” says the Lord.

    Ezekiel 21:29 While they see false visions for you, While they divine a lie to you, To bring you on the necks of the wicked, the slain Whose day has come, Whose iniquity shall end.

    Ezekiel 22:28 Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar,
    seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken.

    Zechariah 10:2 For the idols* speak delusion; The diviners envision lies, And tell false dreams; They comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; They are in trouble because there is no shepherd.

    Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

    Mark 10:19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not defraud,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’ “

  4. Although I don’t perceive these being used in a Tarot card sense (for prediction), the one particular card in the mix really should be the red flag, because that is the open door.

    What really threw me was the “seven spirits jewelry (star & lampstand) ” being sold on her site, (that may have been added to there after your original post) http://barbiebreathitt.typepad.com/jewelry/index.html

    There is something about the ‘misuse’ of the star symbol which is just not sitting well with my spirit… She’s overlayed the symbolic meaning of the seven spirits in several passages from Revelations onto older Hebraic cultural symbols… and the six-point hexagram star is used not only as a Jewish symbol, but also in Islam, and the occult and is considered to be a “magical symbol”…

    Scary stuff.

    Looks like this page has sat quiet for a while…. I’m new to the site and amazed at all the great biblical references… THANK YOU

    It’s 2009 now and the ‘new craze’ is not “Tupperware”, “Avon” or the like…the new party to have is a “Medium” party. Amazingly enough, at $20 bucks a pop and long lists of folks signing up for these house parties…It is scary to say the least. Another validation of prophecy… I had a work associate (age 51) approach me w/ great excitement and a long list in hand of folks coming to her party… Of course, I had to refuse and tried to warn her — but she ensured me its “all for fun” — “nothing to be concerned about” – “just great entertainment”….. participating in a candle-lit meeting to ‘contact’ those who’ve passed…. The medium will speak to the dead FOR you and vice-a-versa…

    The stories she told, were in sane….
    I could not believe how gullible people of every age were and so insecure in putting ALL their faith into this person…Eager to set up “THEIR” follow-on party and invite another mass of folks…

    Something to pray about….
