It saddens me that millions of people and particular Christian believers are being duped into believing that their departed loved ones have passed over into another world of ‘living beings’. Yes they believe that they are dead in this world, but continue to believe that their ‘spirit’ lives on and is conscious in another realm beyond our own. In this belief they are consoled that the ones they have loved as family or friends can still communicate, or at least still watch them and hear their prayers or conversations. I’m not sure that I would want to look upon those I had left behind, particularly if they are suffering and I could do nothing about it.
When they consult a medium to access the world of the dead and the medium gives some answers that only the dead person and their relatives could know, they are fully convinced their loved ones are safe and happy in their new existence. After all how could the medium give such detailed information when he or she did not know the dead person being communicated with? How could the medium be so well informed?
I could go in great detail to explain the ‘human spirit’ and what it is, but it is sufficient for me to tell you that the human spirit cannot talk or exist anywhere without it being joined to a body. God did not give humans a separate spirit when He created us. He formed Adam out of clay and breathed His own spirit into him to give Adam life. When Adam died, God’s Spirit returned to Him - that is His life giving Breath (Heb: Ruach). Adam no longer existed as a human, but the Almighty God has a record of all that is Adam. At the resurrection, Adam will be re-created in heavenly material, just like all those who are saved will receive a new body when they return from the grave. 1 Thess 4:13-18
TRICKERY AND DECEPTION
Who are those who claim to be the voice of a dead loved through a medium? It has always been Satan’s purpose to falsify everything that God says. From the beginning, when he persuaded Eve to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree, he said that she would not die. God had said she would die. God told Adam and Eve not to eat of the forbidden tree, not because He was being a spoilsport or a dictator, no, He wanted to spare His children the heartache of knowing evil. It was because of disobedience that Satan had been cast out of heaven. He wanted the worship that belonged only to God. He was jealous of God and in particular His son and his way of getting ‘back’ at them was to carry on with his deception on earth.
Satan has found many ways to deceive humanity over the 6000 plus years since creation and millions who refuse to put their trust in God are being deceived and led to their eternal death.
He is a very clever ventriloquist and mimic. It is easy to fool those who do not know their Scriptures. Not only can he talk like someone who has died, he can copy their image. We have plenty of human’s who can do the same on stage for our entertainment, however Satan and his angels have a greater advantage, they have followed us through our lives, listened in to private conversations and our innermost feelings that we express verbally when we are alone. The only thing he cannot do is read our minds, but he is clever enough to read our actions. Consequently, he can impersonate anyone and give a medium enough secret information to persuade those who do not make the Word of God their refuge. The Book He gave us has all the information anyone needs to combat the lies of the devil. Make it your daily refuge and you will be surrounded by the angels of God and the Holy Spirit will open your mind to a deeper understanding of the Word of God.
