More About God and the Paranormal by Rev Kristina Rake M. a.
Does the Bible really forbid all communication with the dead?-NO Are ghosts actually demons trying to trick us?-OF COURSE NOT Is it truly possible to be both a psychic medium and a Christian?-YES These myths are so pernicious that they've become "common knowledge" even among non-Christians: that the Bible says you can't be involved in the paranormal or communicate with the dead. Period. No Comma The Bible doesn't actually forbid any and all communication with the dead. In fact, those activities the Old Testament actually does forbid have not been practice for millennia. Christians are actually commanded by Christ and the Apostles to perform ministry for the dead and to pray in relationship with the dead. The belief that Christians are required to continue their relationship with the dead is by no means a new interpretation of scripture. This teaching of Christ and the Apostles, continued now only in the Catholic Church, was held as sacred and not contradicted until the 1400s. Within the pages of this book, you will discover the truth of what the Bible really teaches about the relationship between the living and the dead. In this well-researched and compelling book, you will learn: What the Jews, including Jesus and the Apostles, believed happens when we die. Both Old and New Testament verses that prove we must continue our relationship with the dead. Jesus' teachings that death simply cannot separate Christians and why any belief that it does is heresy. Writings from the Apostles and other ancient Christians proving that they believed both in conversing with those in heaven and receiving visits from them. What the Old Testament verses that seem to forbid communication with the dead actually say and mean. What the original Hebrew words regarding ghosts and mediums in the Old Testament really mean and why they are always mistranslated. Why God would give such gifts as mediumship to the living. And so much more Whether you are a Bible scholar, a paranormal investigator, or someone with psychic medium gifts who feels attacked by Christians, you will be as shocked as much by what the Bible doesn't say as by what it does. From Jewish zombies and incantations over pits of blood to rabbinical tales of visits to Gehenna, this book takes you on a journey into an ancient world where the veil between life and death was too thin to see. You will visit a world where life and death existed on a continuum of vitality, from the highest level of life-force to the least. This book will then lead you into the Messianic age that Christ initiated and through a Christian universe in which, to quote St. Paul whether we are living or dead, to God, "all are alive." However, the most important place this book will lead you to is the truth."
