“Beliefs and Ideas”

The law of Mose’s prohibited omen interpretation, magic, and divination (Deuteronomy 18:10-11 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.) Yet at the same time God was able to communicate by means of dreams (Matthew 2:12  And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.), visions {Luke 24:23  And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.), or movements of the stars (Matthew 2:9  When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.). An obvious factor in this distinction is that no one can compel God to reveal the future. Efforts to do so were not only futile, but condemned by evil.
