Hey, I've studied spirit for a while now and I would like to clear the air on some of the things that people have been led to believe about what is written in the bible and what is the truth.
If you have already seen the show Long Island Medium and can relate to it, then you will understand where I'm coming from. Spirit reading and clairvoyance is not divination, spirit reading is not witchcraft, spirit reading is not defiling someone. It can be, but that all depends on the person doing it.
CHANCE TRAHAN TALKS ABOUT SPIRIT
Spirit reading is simply seeing spirit, and remember that God is considered the Holy Spirit. Some of these spirits are still here that have passed on from physical form into the spirit world. When spirit leaves the body, it is still here. Sometimes in shadow form, sometimes it can be a powerful spirit that can show up in the physical body for mere split seconds to someone who can see them. But the point remains that spirit is here.
The spirit world is a lot like here, once you pass on you are still you. You still have all the things you had here, like physical traits.
Reading spirits is something I've always been able to do. I've seen ghosts, like many others also have. There's shows about ghost hunting, and now there's even a show about spirit reading, it's amazing how far along these practices have come.
[Acts 16 v 16] Paul and Silas in Prison: 16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.
The definition of divination states, "the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means." Do not confuse being a clairvoyant and spirit reading with seeing the future.
I'm someone who is immersed in the present moment, and just because I can see the pattern of how things are going does not make it divination. Only a fool would make that assumption, because they are too worried about themselves and their associations to truly understand their present company.
I respect people who see spirit, I respect those that read the bible, and I respect those who confuse the 2. But there is no margin for error between defiling someone with the spirit world, divination, and actually using this for a great purpose to help someone let go of their past, or maybe the guilt and shame they mistakenly carry around.
When you read spirit, you can help someone let go of the bad spirits they carry around from day to day. When you give them the messages that their loved ones want to give them, you help them move on and have a better quality of life.
Leviticus 19:31 states in the bible, "Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God."
This is true, because they will already have messages for you. They will seek you. They will not defile you if they are good spirit readers. And they will help you carry on. I say this because, everyone is a medium, a spirit reader, we are all made up of the same stuff. We all have this gift, and some of us have just had more practice at it than others. Some of us don't even ask for this gift, because spirit comes to us anyway. Sometimes you'll smell a spirit by their usual aftershave, or the most memorable favorite thing they've worn. The signs of spirit are all around us, and running through us. Ask God if you don't believe me. Ask Jesus. Ask yourself.
