The Prediction of Spirits of Devils

In the end of time preceding Jesus' 2nd coming, Satan will use spiritualism to deceive the world. Supernatural agencies will claim to receive power and knowledge from the spirits of the dead.

The devil's first lie was, "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die" Gen 3:4.  The lie of an immortal soul and communication with the dead is being taught even within the Christian Churches.  It will be the means for the devil deceiving many "of the very elect".  Our only safeguard if to know what the bible teaches for ourselves.   Only God is immortal (1 Timothy 1:17), man is mortal (Job 4:17).

"And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived." Rev 18:23
( Sorcery is a supernatural agency that claims to receive it power and wisdom from the spirits of the dead.)

" For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Cor 11:13

"For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." Rev 16:14

"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Mat 24:23,24

"And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live." Rev 13:13

We are already seeing these prophecy being fulfilled and many being deceived.  The New Age movement is really old spiritualism in a new disguise.  The appearance of Mary to many of the Catholics is a fulfillment of the warnings described in the above text. It is not Mary but the devil (or one of the fallen angel impersonation) of Mary. Surely the 2nd coming of Christ is near.

The bible is very clear on the dangers of speaking to the dead "A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them." Lev 20:27

Our great hope is in the resurrection.  The dead are in a sleep like state in the memory of God. For those who are alive, we also hope for the soon coming of Christ, so we won't have to taste death.

"Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Cor 15:51-57

"But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection." Luke 20:35,36

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Rev 21:4
