This is a critical time for people to come to an understanding of this Bible truth. The unbiblical, pagan doctrine of the immortality of the soul will be used very effectively by Satan to lure Christians who follow the teachings of man over the word of God into the occult and spiritualism to lead them astray in these end times.
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,” 1 Timothy 4:1
“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24.
Anyone who believes that a deceased family member, friend, pastor, etc. is in the presence of God, walking with Jesus (or in Hell, or pergatory) opens themselves up to be deceived by Satan and his demons with false messages “from the other side”, intended to deceive and lead astray. As beloved as Billy Graham is by so many around the globe, we should rejoice that he is resting in the grave, along with all the others asleep in Christ, awaiting resurrection at the soon Appearing of our Lord.
“When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God,” Deuteronomy 18:9-13.
