Can The Dead Speak To Us

Some say they have seen their loved ones and some say they even spoke with them...does the Scripture support this statement that the dead can do things?

Before Jesus saved me, my mother had past away. One night I was sorter overwrought about her leaving me. I heard her voice so loud. It was not a loving tone of voice. Exactly the way she has sounded at times when she was living. I now realize that it was Satan imitating my mother's voice. Please do not dabble in such witchcraft.

"Part 2: Job 14:12,21 (The dead are unconscious and unaware of what is going on around them),Psalm 104:29 (reverse process of creation), Psalm 146:4 (No breath=no thoughts),Eccl 9:5,6,10(the dead know nothing),Dan 12:2 (when someone dies they are not awaken until the resurrection at the second coming).John 5:28-29(same)John 6:39(same)John 11:11-14(Jesus referred death as sleep)NB/ Lazarus never spoke about life after death.Because he knew nothing."
Jenny, What do don't understand is that when God talks about the dead, he talks about your physical body in the grave not your spiritual body. Our God is the god of the living not the dead! And no one has being sentenced to death yet by god except Satan.
---Ricky on 3/17/09

Jesus told the thief on the cross, that "today you will be with me in paradise." He didn't mean his physical body, but his spiritual one. So I do not believe that our spirit is asleep in the grave. When Jesus returns and the dead in Christ rise first, their new bodies will be reunited with their spirit that has been with Jesus all along.

I heard Billy Graham say once that people who believe they are speaking to their dead loved ones are in reality speaking to a demon. That alone would keep me from doing it and then there is the fact that our God forbids it.
---bara7776 on 11/25/07

I agree with the Moderator. What they see and hear are familiar spirits. It is all demonic and not a place where Christians need to go unless they are being used by God to deliver these people who are being affected by this.

Scriptures does not contradict Scriptures. When one does not read Scriptures in light of other Scriptures, they start developing false teachings. Saying that Elijah and Enoch died, is to say the Bible is a lie.

The Bible makes it clear that Elijah and Enoch was taken body and soul to heaven (II Kings 2:11, Genesis 5:21-24, and Hebrews 11:5). Thereby, one must seek the true meaning of Jesus' words in John 3:13, and read the surrounding passages, in order to interpret in correctly.
---Ramon on 4/13/07

#2 Read John 1:18, John 6:38, John 6:62, John 8:23-24, John 8:42, John 13:3, John 16:27-28, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49.

Jesus, in John 3:13, was essentially responding to a series of rhetorical questions posed by an inspired writer centuries before Christs advent: Proverbs 30:1-4

Only the Son of Men have descended from heaven, after alreadly being in Heaven (eternally), by his own power, to reveal the heavenly things (v.12). He is the one, who by his own power, will ascend back to heaven again.
---Ramon on 4/13/07

#3.No man have ascended to heaven, by his own power, and come down to reveal the unseen place of God. Enoch and Elijah was assumed into heaven, not by there own will and power, but by the God Himself.

Jesus is the only one who eternally came down from heaven, and will eternally stepped back into heaven again.

Jesus wasn't denying Enoch and Elijah "ascension". Elijah and Enoch had been taken by God, which is different than freely ascending up into heaven on ones own terms.
---Ramon on 4/13/07

On a side note, "Go up" as taken in John 3:13 means to "ascend". Elijah and Enoch was "assumed" into heaven by God.(II Kings 2:11, Genesis 5:21-24; Hebrews 11:5). They didn't "ascend" into heaven by their own power. They were "assumed" body and soul into heaven by God Himself. There's a difference.

Second, v.13 connects to v.12 Jesus was saying that no one went into heaven and came down from there so as to make known the heavenly realities.
---Ramon on 4/13/07

Steveng. You are calling the Bible a liar. Elijah was taken body and soul to heaven (II Kings 2:11). He like Enoch (Genesis 5:21-24; Hebrews 11:5), never experienced death, but instead was taken to heaven.

Because you fail to interpret NT Passages in light of the OT Passages, you calling the the Only Son of God a liar and a false teacher. How are you calling Jesus a liar, you may ask?

Simple. Jesus knew the OT, he knew that Enoch and Elijah was taken to heaven.
---Ramon on 4/12/07

#2 Jesus knew they never experienced death. What Jesus meant, contrary to your misinterpretation, is not no one had gone to heaven by his own power, except The Son of Men. He's the one who came down and will ascend back to heaven, by his own power.

I notice that you only quote half of my response, as you did to other people here, and never quote the Scriptures that is given, to support the view. This indicate that: 1)You believed that II Kings 2:11, Genesis 5:21-24, and Hebrews 11:5 are in error.
---Ramon on 4/12/07

#3. All of these passages state they were taken to heaven. However, you say these are false. So who's the one calling the Bible a liar? Like Eloy said, "God's word reads that Elijah did not die, but you [steveng] deny this truth and wrongly say that he is dead."

Jesus is the only one who, by his own power, Eternally came down from heaven and ascended back to heaven.

You falsely claim that Elijah died, and that Scriptures was wronged some how.
---Ramon on 4/12/07

#4. People, like Eloy, have tried to tell you the truth. Why don't want to accept what the Bible states? Are you, like so many people in this site, "anti-learning"?

If you don't mind Steveng, I'm going to end this conversation. Ok? I don't feel its necessary. Since you already decided to reject Scriptures, I can't say anything else. I only have 12 words to say to you.

"Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God" (Mat 22:29).

God Bless!
---Ramon on 4/13/07

Steveng, "this is a useless debate". The Word don't contradict Itself, Steven. You are looking at this all wrong. Yes Elijah was taken to Heaven [alive], like Enoch. Yes, Jesus said that no man has ascended to Heaven, God took/changed them Steven, they didn't ascend according to their own timing/power(just like the Rapture will be). Just let the Lord reason with you, and know that it don't affect your salvation, okay. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 4/12/07

Steveng scripture cannot contradict scriputre. If you say anyone who believes Elijah went to heaven is calling Jesus a liar it is no different than saying anyone who says only Jesus went to heaven bodily is calling the author of Kings a liar. There must be some common ground between the the two scripures are we end up saying the bible contradicts itself which it can't. Someone told me those who ascend do it of their own power, those that are taken(translated) by God don't do it of their own power.
---Matthew on 4/12/07

Ramon: "Elijah was taken body and soul to heaven..." Then you are calling Jesus a liar for He said "no one ascended into heaven."

Jenny M. #2 After the dead come forth, their spirits, already with the Lord ( 2 Cor 5:8; Phil 1:23), are now being joined to resurrected new bodies.

The word "sleep", or "fallen asleep" is an euphemistic term used in the NT to refer to death. Jesus is coming to both raptured the saints of the Church, after they have been "transform"; and to give the saints, that are already in heaven, there permanent, and immortal bodies.
---Ramon on 4/10/07

steveng, you would rather believe Indians and dictionarys, rather than God's Word. Shame on you.
---Eloy on 4/10/07

.steveng, God's word reads that Elijah did not die, but you deny this truth and wrongly say that he is dead. I pray that you will come to believe the truth, and get saved.
---Eloy on 4/10/07

where do people get your dillusions from. NO ONE returns to God's kingdom until after the resurrection and more importantly, the judgement. you will be judged by every word, thought, action and deed you do in life. any sins you have not repented of will stain your garments red. it is false to think everyone goes back to God after death. narrow is the way and few will find the gate leading back to God. many that say lord lord will be cast OUT. broad is the way and wide is the gate for most.

*As for Elijah, he's dead, too.*

You err. Elijah was taken body and soul to heaven (II Kings 2:11). He like Enoch (Genesis 5:21-24; Hebrews 11:5), never experienced death, but instead was taken to heaven.

*Moses is dead. God buried him on a mountaintop.*

On the Mount Of Transfiguration, Moses is seen talking with Elijah. Moses died. His soul, however, didn't "sleep" or went into in a state of "unconsciousness" as some say.
---Ramon on 4/10/07

The Christians that already died, are not in heaven. The bible says the dead in Christ shall rise first, how could they rise if they're already in heaven? Their not going to meet the ones remaining in the air, we meet them along with Jesus. As for Enoch and Elijah, I don't know where they are. I do know that they didn't die, for God took both of them. They will come back to earth to warn those that remain for a period of time. then they will die and people will rejoice of their death.
---Rebecca_D on 4/10/07

Jenny M. The souls of the faithful departed are with God in heaven, and the angels. Jude says the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints (Jude 14; probably quoted from the Book of Enoch). In 1 Thess. 4:13-17, we are told that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him. Then he states, those who are alive will not precede those who have fallen asleep.

The Lord from heaven will come down with a trumpet call and the dead in Christ will rise first.
---Ramon on 4/10/07

Ramon: "At the moment of death, your soul goes directly to heaven or hades (hell)." At the first resurrection, at Jesus' coming, the dead in Christ shall rise first... All the rest of the people will rise at the second resurrection at the end of the millinium.

Moses is dead. God buried him on a mountaintop.

As for Elijah, he's dead, too. the American Indians would say, "the spirit of the dead rides the wings of the wind..." taken from phrase dictionary.

Ramon: Do you believe that Jesus is returning only for those that are in Christ and alive at that moment? Since the righteous dead are already with Him?

jo or joanne or who ever you are, you are treading on dangerous ground. It is impossible for your loved ones to contact you. The Bible backs this up. Be careful because Satan likes to disquise himself as an angel of light. If you are talking to them, you are opening a door to an evil spiritual realm. I know it comforts some to do this. My dad prayed to my mom after she died. It's still wrong. Now he passed on and he won't be talking until judgement day, just like the rest of us.
---J_P on 4/10/07


At the moment of death, your soul goes directly to heaven or hades (hell). Thereby, you fate is sealed. You can't come back. The Bible does have exceptions, like Moses and Elijah (Elijah was taken up, body and soul, to heaven), and Samuel, but all this was allowed by God himself. And its was only for a brief period.

steveng, Yes, I believe the accurate translation I have given for the greek word, and as I have said before, it cooincides with the rest of scripture which also states that Henoch and Elijah ascended to heaven without dying a mortal death. Therefore Jesus was saying you must be born-again to enter heaven, and I know because I am the only one whom has always walked in heaven. How? Because Jesus is the very one whom created heaven.

lee: And it is written that When Jesus returns, the dead in Christ will rise first and the living will be caught up with them. Blessed are the ones risen in the First Resurrection. The Second Resurrection, after the thousand year rein of Christ, the rest of the dead shall rise. All are dead until His return, then Those in Christ shall be alive forever. This world is only the stepping stone to a forever life. The life God origianlly intended us to be.

Jesus stated that God is the god of the living; not the dead. He did not say that He was the god of the sleeping!

Mt. 22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not God of the dead, but of the living.

Eloy: Do you really believe in your interpretation of that verse? Do you really know what it says? This verse had a dozen different interpretations 35 years ago when I was studying prophsy, including Greek and Hebrew. I found that the KJV is still the closest interpretation. Back then I used different worldly reference books, now I depend on one, and only one, reference guide - the Holy Spirit. Trust God for the interpretation not worldly reference books.

steveng, Jesus DID NOT SAY, no one ASCENDED to heaven. Jesus DID SAY, "And no one ETERNALLY STEPPED in heaven except he out of heaven came down, the Son of man who from being in the heaven." John 3:13. Therefore your English is not translated accurately, and thus you are mistaken by not using the original Greek. My accurate translation is right and also cooincides with the rest up scripture which says Henoch and Elijah went to heaven without dying. Please read Genesis 5:23,24; II Kings 2:11,12.

Unless scripture contradicts scripture Elijah's trip to heaven wasn't the same as ascending, for Jesus said no one ascended before Him. Both can be believed if we understand those who ascend do it of their own power. Those who are taken(elijah)do not.

Scripture cannot contradict scripture!

2 Kings 2:11
And it came to pass, ....and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

So sorry everyone for making a mistake about Moses. Thanks for the correction.I do remember now, something about his body not being in the place where it was buried and it was not found? I will look into it.Does anyone know something? Thanks.
I agree some had power over death(bring back to life,body and soul).What I was talking about earlier was that there is no soul without a body.

Lee, What translation did you use for Jude1:9? King James has..."Yet Michael the archangel,when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses,durst not bring against him a railing accusation,but said,The Lord rebuke thee".What God was doing there, was rebuking satan for claiming the body of Moses.If you read it in full context by reading verses 8-11, you'll see that it is talking about "filthy dreamers" and "running greedily after the error of Balaam".

When these men saw Moses and Elijah it was a vision. If you'll read Matthew 17:9 Jesus tells them not to speak of this vision to no man until the son of man be risen again from the dead.

Jenny: Moses died. Deu 34:7, he was 120 years old. Enoch and Elijah never saw death. God just took Enoch Gen 5:22-24. Elijah was caught up in a whirlwind into heaven. 2 Kings 2:11. Jesus gave us power to raise the dead, Mt 10:8. I haven't seen it done but Jesus said the works shall he do, we also can do and greater works than these. Jn 14:12. But the most important thing to remember is that Moses did see death and Enoch and Elijah didn't.

why would the Bible command us not to speak with the dead if it weren't possible, wouldn't it instead say don't speak with those who appear as ghosts but aren't?

This conclusion is drawn based on a solitary verse of scripture but it denys the practical experience of many mediums, (not saying they're not decieved) nor am I equally trying to debunk what Moderator said, but we should keep an open mind and let God reveal truth to us instead of us deciding how deep and wide the truth is.

1 John 4:1 indicates that spirits will come, but we are to test them to be certain that they are of God. My church teaches that we are forbidden to attempt contact with the dead and does warn that demons can and do mimic our loved ones.

Matthew 17:3 shows that the dead can come back and appear to the living; however, these are the exceptions not the rule, and only with God's cooperation. And even great saints or angels appearing requires discernment and testing against the scriptures.

I have known people who thought their recently dead loved ones either spoke to them or stood in the room in a comforting way. I think in the depth of grief in a person's own mind they will form the image of what they see or hear until it seems real. The mind will do some unusual things, when people are in pain, to cope with what is going on. I also do believe there are familar spirits straight from Satan that will take advantage of a weak moment.

When Saul asked the Witch of Endor to raise Samuel she did so and Samuel asked why he had been disturbed. There is no mention in the bible that it was an evil spirit or anyone other than Samuel. However, we are told NOT to do this, so whether or not we actually can is beside the point.

Yes, it is possible. In 1 Sam.28:15 The prophet Samuel, who has died, is conversing with king Saul.
Elijah and Moses came down and conversed on the mount of transifguration.
Stephen, when he was being stoned said he saw Jesus standing at the right hand of the father. So to say it is not possible is is unscriptural. To say it is demonic may be correct part of the time like in Sauls case but not in Stephens. I would not discredit conversations or sightings of loved ones who have passed away.
