“Runes are ancient Teutonic and Norse alphabet sigils (signs or images) placed upon titles that are given magical and divinatory properties. The word “rune” derives from the Indo-European root “rw,” meaning “mystery or “secret.” One author refers to the runes as “later and more sophisticated version of the I Ching…” The runes are said to be like the tarot, Ouija Board, and other forms divination, that gives access to (demonic) power. The Germans have been fascinated by the runes, and Naziism not only made use of them but of much other occultism as well. The church actively tried to stamp out runic divination but it inevitably became linked with witches, warlocks and their arts. Runes become a vital component of the Third Reich’s belief in Aryan superiority. The Nazis employed two runes routinely: the swastika (originally a Norse magical symbol known as Thor’s hammer) and the lightening-looking sigil used by the SS troops, originally a symbol of the Earth Mother and the sun. In recent decades, runes have experienced another revival, perhaps, at least in part, from the popularity of the Roman Catholic J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” which have been falsely attributed as a Christian allegory. Christians should stay clear of all forms of divination.”

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
