My name is Susan Osten, and I was just thirteen years old, when the memories flooded my mind, as I walked down the long corridor to my Grandmother’s bedroom. I had not seen her for two years, because my family relocated from England to America, when I was eleven years old.
When I arrived at her open bedroom door, my Grandmother was sitting in her armchair with an eerie smile on her face. I went over to her and sat down at her feet. As she began to speak, my thoughts drifted back in time. I remembered how much it hurt, and how much I cried, when my Grandmother and Grandfather, with the snow all around them, waved, Goodbye to us, as we all got into my uncle’s car. The engine started, and we started our long journey. We arrived at the port in Southampton, where our ship the “SS United States” was waiting to carry us to America.
My thoughts were interrupted when my Grandmother said, “Susan, one day you will be a Queen of Witches!” I sat starring up at her, mesmerized! My Grandmother had never come close to saying anything like that to me. I loved my Grandmother with all of my heart. I practically lived with her up until we left the country.
What she told me was always in the back of my mind; but it was pushed way back, and on a shelf, and I kept it there. I never told anybody, and I never dwelled on it, or acted upon it.
One day, after I became a Christian, I stopped at a store, got out of the car and on the telephone outside of a store, I led my Grandmother to Jesus. Some months later, I received a phone call from my mother; my Grandmother had passed away.
A few years later, and I don’t remember how it came up; but my mother told me that when she was in her late teens and/or early twenties, my Grandmother practiced witchcraft.
As my mom and I, continued our conversation, she told me that when she was in her twenties, she went to a Fortune Teller, to find out a little about her future. My mom said the Fortune Teller told her that one of her children would precede her in death. Mom first told me this when I was around 16 years old. I found that tidbit of information a little disconcerting, and I worried periodically, wondering, “Would it be me?” I didn’t come true! My siblings and I, are all alive and well.
Fortune Tellers are godless! God answers prayer! Talking with our heavenly Father about anything is never in vein.
Twenty years ago, I prayed for a talking bird. If you don’t know how much they can cost, it’s approximately $150 and up, depending on what type of bird you choose.
I told the Lord, I was lonely and I couldn’t afford a talking bird, and I asked Him to send me one. They are wonderful company. Two days later, I was sweeping out in front of my house, and I happened to look up, into nearby tree. There was a green bird in the tree. The bird flew down from the tree and walked over to me.
I picked up the bird, and took it into my house, and placed it in an enclosed area in my house. Afterwards, I drove to the pet store and bought a cage. I had to ask the Cashier what to feed the bird. I explained to her what happened, and she asked me to describe the bird. The Cashier told me that I had a Quaker Parakeet: they talk! I named my bird 🐦 Crackers. He lived with me for ten years and passed away. 🙏💜🙏 God answers prayer!
I’ve attached a photo of Crackers and me.
Many years went by (41 to be exact) before the Lord bought me to this place, here with you on this website. Why so long? Only God knows.
A few years after I became a Christian, I taught Widows from my church the Word of God, in my home. After our Bible Study, we would have brunch together. During one of those meetings, a dear lady pulled me to the side and told me that I would be a witness for Jesus to those who are involved in the Occult.
About a year later, my Pastor’s wife told me that God was going to take me into dark places.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
In closing, my prayer is that you now, realize that practicing witchcraft and fortune telling can cause you and/or your children permanent emotional damage, and it has the capability to eventually, leave your life in ruins. For example, in some forms of witchcraft, the coven (an assembly or band of usually 13 witches) appoint, “Breeders” to have babies for sacrificial purposes. Can you live with that for a lifetime?
Dear Christian followers, I pray, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.“
2 Corinthians 13:14 (KJV)
