Someone emailed me the other day claiming that not all spirits are bad and some are actually those of departed loved ones. This statement assumes that we are able to continue communication with our loved ones after death. This assumption comes under the modern day banner of spirtualism or channelling of spirits and aliens.
“The ‘good’ spirits are VERY convincing!”
By my own experience I communicated with what I could describe as a being of love, light and wisdom. During communication I felt a rush of energy, it was an amazing feeling and also felt great love and kindness from the being. The spiritualist church was the place where both myself and other mediums would experience more profound supernatural events and experiences than any other place. It was almost as if the place had become a portal for these spirits and thus was able to come through within this localised area. So as you can imagine, with all this positiveness surrounding these wise beings how could anyone conclude them to be bad in anyway? This is the issue and here are some clear reasons as to why you should avoid spirit contact.
1) They lie.
Even own loyal guide would often give me information that turned out to be true however sometimes this turned out to be the absolute opposite to the truth. On challenging the guide he would blame me for getting it wrong. This is a classic method the familiar spirits use to cover their tracks. By their very nature, they lie, they just can’t help themselves.
2) They are familiar spirits.
Its interesting to note that communication with familiar sprits is forbidden in the Torah/old testiment. God strictly forbids it but why? The reason being primarily that seeking guidence from any other source is clearly a denial of God since he tells us to seek him, not a false prophet, familar spirit or alien. It is when we choose the alternative spiritual path (and there are only 2) we are unknowingly lead astray.
3) They can possess.
I’m not just talking about deep trance mediumship where the entity takes over the mediums body, this is far too obvious to point out. I’m refering the the possession of thought. Its very subtle but it happens very frequently especially if you are open to such forces. Even as a Christian and praying to God I have experienced ‘foriegn unwanted’ thoughts and unwated anger towards God. These are the firey darts that we are warned about in ephesians 6:16 “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Without faith in Christ we at the very least at risk of subtle possession.
4) You cannot test the source without the power of the Word.
As a medium there was no way I could tell who or what was coming through, i could only rely on what the enitity or guide was telling me. I would often just go by feelings or the light that the being was emitting at that time. God warns us that even satan came appear as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
I can’t force people to take these facts on board, I can only provide facts and thoughts on this matter. The bottom line is that after all the time I wasted relying on the spiritual entities I never found resolution, just confusion and more curiosity which pulled me in further and further. Near the end I was exhaused and it was only when Jesus revealed himself to me (answering my prayers) did I embrace the truth. I’m not saying its all wonderful now, the spirtual battle still continues as it has done for 1000’s and maybe billions of years but I now know that the side I was on was contrary to Gods teachings. If you accept a spiritual reality then how can one deny God? New age teachings do exactly that and this is part of the great deception.
