      There is a TV show called “The Haunting Of” which involves paranormal experiences of some celebrity.  A medium joins the celebrity and they go back to the place of the haunting.  The medium usually claims they are being joined by spirits of several of the celebrity’s relatives who have passed on and correctly names them.  She also claims they are protecting that person.  Then she correctly identifies what is going on with the haunting and names the person.  They dig up an article with the name of a person in the area who has passed on with that name as proof of the medium’s accuracy.  Then they usually end by telling the haunting earthbound spirit to go to the light.

      Just checking that everyone here knows this is all rubbish and she is contacting familiar spirits that are demonic.  Some play the good guy.  There is a book I read a long time ago called “The Challenging Counterfeit” by an ex spiritest and he explained that all of those spirits good
      and bad are demonic.  Then again, surely, not everyone can “go to the light”, if those without Christ go to hell.  The medium on TV admits she is “channeling’.  If the Christian dead go to be with the Lord and cannot return other than the resurrection and the unChristian dead go to hell and certainly cannot return, who is left to channel?

      It’s surprising that the celebrities all seem to accept the medium at her word and of course she is convincing because she believes it herself.  I saw Kevin Sorbo on one of these programs and he is a Christian, and he didn’t question any of her practices.  I guess a lot of Christians
      are not well enough read in the Bible to be suspicious of these things.

      What I mean to say, is this is one of the doctrines of demons for the last days.  It makes for a popular TV show but it is certainly decieving.

      The Bible also explicitly forbids attempting to communicate with the dead. Deuteronomy 18:10-14 details how it those who practice this are detestable to the Lord. I also agree that if they do hear any voices or channel that it is that of demons. All of this and including the alien stuff is all demonic…..and it will be part of the great deception, sadly many will be deceived.

      Hi Churchgal,

      Thank you for the scripture and the comment.  I thought it was a good thing to bring up because we as Christians are supposed to be able to give an account for why we believe what we believe.  And certainly at this point in time that has to include being able to debunk some of these doctrines of demons coming out of the TV.   I feel sorry for this medium on TV because she seems to thinks she is helping these people who have been “haunted” and some have had harrowing experiences.  However, in promoting her beliefs about the nature of all this, I believe she is damaging people’s faith in Christ.  She never mentions Jesus and leaves people with the impression that most of the people passed on “go to the light”, meaning Heaven.  In reality anyone without the belief and acceptance of Christ’s dying for their sins goes to a Christless eternity, hell.

      Tom Gaston, who researches the Bible Code, gave me this quote about the nature of all this if it helps anyone understand this better:

      “These so called “Mediums” are in contact with “demons” who were associated with the deceased subject.  These demons know all about the dead person’s life as they monitored them all the way up until their death.  Therefore a medium who is working with a demon can relay information to family members about a deceased member of their family.  The demon therefore can give the medium all kinds of information on that person.”

      So when this medium on the program claims a person’s grandmother has showed up from the beyond and is protecting them, it is really a masquerading demon.  We are supposed to test any spirit that shows up by asking “has Jesus Christ come in the flesh”?  Anything but a praising yes shows it is a demon and the next step should be to tell it to go away in the name of Jesus.

      1 John 4
      New King James Version
      Love for God and One Another
      4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

      Hello Earthangel :bye:

      I have been super concerned about the medium stuff on TV and also of that show Ancient Aliens….they never offer any proof of any kind, of course they don’t have any; but in every episode they always say “What if an alien race left such and such or helped make this or that?” They just consistently give credit for anything they don’t understand to an alien civilization that came to earth. These types of things are leading people away from Jesus and hope and heaven; and usually for a cost too. I worry how much of it is getting into the church! Some which are obviously new age are starting to use crystals and bizarre rituals, and I heard my sister say the other day (she is a baby Christian who ought to know more by now than she does) that she thought everyone went to heaven!!! I told her, well that’s not what Jesus says- you might want to quit trusting in what you think and get into the Word and see what Jesus says…..sorry didn’t mean to vent, discussing faith issues with family members sometimes makes me  :calvin :mdrmdr:

      Demons are the epitome of evil!  None have been forgiven, as none have repented!  As this also holds true for many men!

      God be glorified in His judgements!

        You are so right churchgal.  In all these alien shows over the years has anyone produced a live or dead alien as irrefutable proof that these aliens really exist? No.  Have they even produced an alien space craft that everyone can study? No The same with big foot; some obscure films and pics, but not physical bodies.  What they do is say the government stands in the way and stops them. (poor excuse)   I don’t waste my time even watching any of these alien shows.  Even this Bob Lazar stuff is just based what he has said.

      Watch out for these TV preachers who are laying hands over the TV screen, peddling special ointments, and prayer candles. The same ones who wave their hands and somehow command demons to be cast out right through the viewer’s TV screen. And while at the same time are pumping the TV audience for lots of money–money that most of the TV listeners cannot afford. You don’t have to look far on some of these Christian prosperity gospel stations to see this. Just look at the mega-dollars incomes of some of them while more and more debt piles up on their already almost penniless viewers.  I won’t name these con artists; there are too many to name.
