Spiritualism is a religion whose basic attraction is contact with the dead. Several spiritualist members attend séances, promote healing methods and investigate psychic phenomena. Some people get involved in spiritualism because they are looking for joy. Most people join spiritualism because of the loss of a loved one and they are going through a period of grief. They feel lost and empty and the idea of communicating with the dead is attractive. Also, the idea of receiving direction from one in the spirit will be very convincing.
Spiritualists teach from the Bible.
They claim to have nine miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, which they claim to use during times of séances. They mention Jesus in their prayers, but they do not believe He is the Divine Son of God. Spiritualists teach that a person can be “saved” by good works. (And they do not believe in the day 1) of the Last Day (and they do not believe in the day 1) of this day.
Spiritualists have worship services.
They sang and prayed. However, the service is not like that in which Christians are accustomed. For example; as long as a sacrificial séance can be offered, it may be animal or human. During communion services – one of the spiritualists can be called upon to sacrifice a finger joint. The finger joints will be cut and blood collected in a cup. Cups and fingers will be distributed among the spiritualists to sip literal blood and bite literal fingers. This they say is in accordance with the Christian Communion Service. However, the Christian Communion Service or the Lord’s Supper is not the literal body and blood of Jesus; but the bread that has not been put down and the juice of the grapes that is not broken are only symbols of the sacrificial body and blood of Jesus.
Spiritualists own Mediums, which are mediators who are suspected of contacting the dead during a séance. The clergy sit in a circle in a dark room and follow directions from Medium. Ouija Board (we ge) is very popular in the US. However, even though there was no power in the “we ge” board itself – it was feared by many that it was a “door” through which one allowed people from the spirit world to control it. They have served as “doors” for occult practices. Thus, it is a form of Divinity, which is the art of obtaining secret information from the spirit world.
Spiritualism is very real.
It is a tool used by Satan to deceive and entice people’s souls. The Bible forbids God’s people from dealing with the spirit world in the following Scriptures:
“Do not turn to mediums or seek spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am your Lord …” (Leviticus 19:31); (And let none of you reproach you) only reproach the prophet. Whoever does these things, he will expel his god in a way that is better than that, then he will drive out the nations. “(Deuteronomy 18: 10-12)
Jesus and the writers of the New Testament warned about false religious teachers, who have miraculous powers: “For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great miracles and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that is possible.” (Matthew 24:24); “An unlawful coming will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of false miracles, signs and wonders, and in every kind of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refuse to love the truth and are so saved. this is God will give them strong and violent delusions. (2 Thessalonians 2: 9-11); “And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in the full view of men.” Revelation 13:13); “They are demon spirits that perform miraculous signs, and they go to Kings all over the world, to gather them up for battle on the great day of Almighty God.” (Revelation 16:14)
May we all strive to be better Bible students and realize that God has spoken and encourage us to heed the following warnings: “The Spirit clearly says that in the last days, some will leave the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been sealed as with hot iron. (They forbid) others (to marry) people (and order them to abstain from food certain) which they create from their dwellings in a visible state even though they already know that they are people (and people who know) i.e. people who want to use their minds.
