Feng Shui EXPOSED!

"Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain..." -Jeremiah 10:2,3
What is Feng Shui?
To understand Feng Shui, you need to understand Yin Yang.
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese philosophy, which believes that the positioning and physical characteristics of a home affect the fortunes of the owner...The objective is to achieve harmony with nature by positioning objects and structures such as buildings, rooms, furniture and gardens to be in sympathy with the flow of earth's energy. Practitioners search for lines of Qi (chi) in the environment, and use these lines to enhance the balance of nature in the area for the benefit of the people there, who should enjoy increased prosperity, good health, and happiness. -Source: Peter Gravett, Making Sense of English in Alternative Medicine, Chambers Harrap Publisher, Edinburgh, 1993
Feng shui is a Chinese version of Vaastu. The word fengshui which is normally pronounced as 'Foong' means 'Wind' and 'Shui' is pronounced as 'Shway' and means 'Water.'
Feng shui is reportedly 4000 years old. Some historians believe that it was born in 600 A.D. Originally it was practiced by the Emperors and members of the Royal Families. It was also held in great secret. Slowly the knowledge spread out and today feng shui is widely practiced in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Malaysia and to a lesser extent in the Europe and USA.
There are two schools in feng shui one is called the Compass School and the other is called the Farm School. The Farm school is not particular about directions and is more visual in approach. The Compass school stipulates what should exist in which direction.
As per fengshui, there are three components on which universe is made of. Every living being, every plant and every object is supposed to represent one of the three. These are the Yin, Yang and Chi. Yang is male in nature where as Yin is female in nature. Basically Yin and Yang are two forces which are responsible in creation and sustenance of all living and non-living objects on earth. Chi is the force which is produced due to the interaction of Yin and Yang.
The understanding of Yin, Yang and Chi is essential to understand the concept of feng shui where Yin and Yang are in balance, Chi is also balanced. There is no plant, animal or object which cannot be classified under Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang interaction brings about energy, alertness, health, strength as well as sound sleep and relaxation.
Chi is dynamic force and it is Yin, Yang, and Chi which dynamically balance in the whole universe. However, a landscape can alter the composition of Yin and Yang and therefore alters the quality of Chi.
Manipulating the landscape to get the best form of Chi is the science of fengshui. Feng shui believes that all the four directions should have different levels to create excellent Chi. They prefer the turtle mountains at the back, the green mountains representing the dragon on the left and the white tiger mountain on the right. The plain open land should be in front of the plot. This is supposed to be the best landscape where Chi is liberates in plenty.
Unlike vaastu, feng shui does not stipulate where your master bedroom should come and where your kitchen should come. On the other hand they believe that depending upon the various directions, a good form of Chi should be allowed to enter and move in coily movements to occupy the structure.
As per fengshui, not only the landscape should liberate good Chi but the building should be such that the Chi moves slowly to continuously move towards the various directions in the building. The characteristics of Chi in every direction is different and can give you a particular gift which is necessary for the enrichment of life. Thus family, happiness, relationship, name, fame, children etc. are all possible when good Chi circulates in a related direction.
Fengshui also believes that gadgets can be of immense help in verifying and altering the characteristics of Chi. Wind chimes, crystals, Pa Kua mirrors, fruits, plants, colors, lights are all used to change the characteristic of Chi.
What the Word of God teaches
The Bible clearly condemns Feng Shui, and all other forms of occult witchcraft. Witchcraft is seeking spiritual guidance, power, or information from sources apart from God. There are only 2 sources of spiritual power: God and Satan. Ultimately, there is only one source of power, God, but God has given power to Satan (Luke 4:6). The Word of God forbids anyone from dabbling with the occult powers of darkness.
"When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 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, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 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." -Deuteronomy 18:9-12
Notice the words above describing Feng Shui...
"Thus family, happiness, relationship, name, fame, children etc. are all possible when good Chi circulates in a related direction."
The preceding statement is witchcraft because it seeks to control the demonic powers of Yin and Yang. "Yin and Yang" are nothing less than Satanic powers. The Bible teaches that ALL good things come from God...
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." -James 1:17
The whole concept on "Yin and Yang" excludes the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is Almighty God. It is the Lord God Who gives us everything that is good. To no surprise, Wiccan witches also adhere to the forces of Yin and Yang. In fact, the entire New Age religion is composed of all sorts of occult practices based upon the demonic forces of Yin and Yang. From Tarot card readers to holistic practitioners, you'll find the Yin-Yang symbol everywhere. "Yin and Yang" are believed to be the two great opposing (but equally complementing) forces of the universe. If Yin and Yang are in balance, then harmonious flow of the energy "chi" is produced (and vise versa). It is upon this concept that Yoga, martial arts, holistic health, acupuncture, hypnosis, and many other occult practices are based...trying to bring "chi" back into a state of harmony.
The Word of God teaches no such nonsense, but rather reproves such foolish heresies. We read in Hebrews 4:12 that the Word of God is "quick" and "powerful." If pagans want real power, then they need to learn about the promises of God (2nd Peter 1:3,4). There are several thousand promises made to mankind in the Word of God. The power of God rests in the promises of God. If we do our part, then God will do His. A good place to start is with Romans 10:13..."For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL be saved."
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE SAVED?
Is there a time and place in your life, when you trusted in the blood of Jesus Christ? Not joined a church, not kept the sacraments, not baptism, not good works — but simply, by faith, prayed and asked Jesus Christ to save you?
To die without Jesus Christ will be the worst thing you could ever do...
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE." Revelation 20:15
YOU CAN BE SAVED THIS VERY MINUTE!
It's simple to be saved...
- Know you're a sinner.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10
"... for there is no difference. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23
- Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins.
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24
"... Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood," Revelation 1:5
- And the best way you know how, simply trust Him, and Him alone as your personal Savior.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE SAVED?
Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I thank you for dying for me at Calvary. I come to you now, Lord the the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Saviour. Amen.
