Warning –You Can’t Talk To The Dead


I don’t know why I had this on my mind, but I know there are so many people out there that believe they or someone they know can speak to the dead.  Some goes as far as saying that the dead can predict their future.


What they are doing is in fact talking with demonic entities who impersonate the dead.  This could be classified as divination.

Let’s see what the scripture has to say about divination.  Warnings for those saying “Thus Saith The Lord” when the Lord was not part of it.


1 Samuel 15:23

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim (household good luck images). Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.


Then Pharaoh called for the wise men [skilled in magic and divination] and the sorcerers (wizards and jugglers). And they also, these magicians of Egypt, did similar things with their enchantments and secret arts.


Surely there is no enchantment with or against Jacob, neither is there any divination with or against Israel. [In due season and even] now it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What has God wrought!


There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire, or who uses divination, or is a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer,


They caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire and used divination and enchantments and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking Him to anger.


Then the Lord said to me, The [false] prophets prophesy lies in My name. I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, nor have I spoken to them. They prophesy to you a false or pretended vision, a worthless divination [conjuring or practicing magic, trying to call forth the responses supposed to be given by idols], and the deceit of their own minds.


There are numerous televised shows where people claim they can contact dead people.  They claim they are talking to “Ghosts”, “Spirits of Relatives” or sometimes they claim a deceased loved one is now their “Guardian Angel” and they can talk to them!

Here’s just a few examples:

  2. Jonathon Edwards
  3. Ghost Adventures
