The Dead Don’t Speak

For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten – Ecclesiastes 9:5.

So many people have been deceived by people who say they can tell them about their future and speak to their loved ones who have died. When we seek after people rather than seeking after God, we will be misled, and sometimes the misleading can be detrimental to our well-being.

The Bible speaks about soothsayers, fortune tellers, wizards, familiar spirits, and necromancers; it’s something professing Christians shouldn’t seek after. The world seeks after these for information, not understanding that they are opening themselves to demonic spirits.

People that are in much grief and will not let go of the grief sometimes seek after people who claim they can speak to their deceased loved one. This is a lie from the pits of hell; according to the Bible, once a person dies, they aren’t aware of what is happening in the world, for they are sleeping until they enter heaven or judgment.

Solomon spoke about the deceased not being aware of what was going on, and Jesus spoke about a rich man who went to Hades after death and was suffering the torments of burning, separation, loneliness, conviction by memory, thirst, and stench. Lazarus was poor, and he came to the rich man requesting at the gate to be fed; the dogs had more compassion for the beggar than the rich man. Both died, the rich man to hell and the beggar into Abraham’s bosom.

The rich man asked Abraham to send Lazarus to his father’s house to tell his five brothers about the place he had entered so that they would not enter it. Abraham told him there was a gulf between the living and the dead, and neither one could cross over to the other (And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot: neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence – Luke 16:26). No one can talk to their deceased loved ones, but Satan will send one of his demons perpetrating the deceased.

We are spiritual beings; the spirit never dies. When one dies, their bodies turn to dust, and the spirit goes to God; if they rejected salvation, the spirit goes to hell to await the judgment of God. On the day of judgment, they will be cast into the lake of fire (And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death – Revelation 20:14). The second death is eternal punishment, and this is a place people don’t want to go.

There is a spirit world where demons reside, interacting with charmers, consulter of familiar spirits, wizards, witches, necromancers, psychics, and fortune tellers. They consult with demon spirits; they aren’t talking to the deceased. If you consult with a dead relative, demons will answer you! Just as godly angels can take on human form, demons can also take on human form. Seek God, not the dead.
