There was a story in the bible that sorta pertained to this subject.
It was about King Saul, the first King of Israel, who fell in a state of sin, and when he tried to call on God, God did not answer him. So what did
Saul do? He consulted a witch from Endor who could talk to "spirits" which was a direct violation of God's will that we should not consult with
people that "hath a familiar spirit"
So saul talked to the witch of Endor, and Saul told her to bring up Samuel from the dead. Long story short, Saul ended up dieing.
1 Chronicles 10:13 (Whole Chapter)
So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking
counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;
The story of Saul and the witch can be found in 1 Samuel 28
My personal belief is that all dead spirits that although may have the most uncanny likeness to thier real life counterparts, they are not really
them, but fallen angels disguising themselves as those spirits that have supposedly come back from the dead.
The bible says that the dead know not anything, that thier memory is forgotten, and that they have no more portion of anything that is done under the
Sun ( Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 ) and that the dead are resting peacefully in thier grave until the 2nd Coming. ( That's where the acronym R.I.P stems from
It is the same way how if i were to see an angel, AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE ANGEL MAY BE, HOw do i know its a fallen angel or a messenger from God, OR SATAN
HIMSELF. Because the bible does say "No marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" 2 Corinthians 11:4
So why am i saying all these things? And what does any of this have to do with anything relevant to the original topic?
It is my sincere belief that the popularity of spiritualism in our time will pave the way for the whole world to be deceived. Most people, Even
christians, believe that the dead can speak to us, that they are up in heaven watching over us and that we can feel thier presence. Imagine if the
spirits of Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II and Martin Luther King and Martin Luther, and the Virgin Mary and manifested themselves and tell us
things. Whatever they tell us, mostly everyone will take it as fact, simply because they came back from the dead and they were famous when they were
If we compare the story of what happened to Saul after he consulted the spirits of the dead and his demise, the same can happen to us if we are not
careful of what we do, and that we should take the bible seriously when it says that we should "NOT consult with those that hath a familiar spirit"
Revelation 16: 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the
mouth of the false prophet.
14For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the
battle of that great day of God Almighty.
"the spirits of devils" that is exactly what the spirits of the dead are. Fallen angels disguised as our dear loved ones.
Thank you for taking the time to read my lengthy post, and i hope to continue in this discussion.
