Many born again Christians see no harm in seeking their council from the dead

How many of you start your day in prayer and then rely on what the stars have in store for you? If you think that there is no harm in even reading your daily horoscope, then I would advise you to seek your council from the word of God and God alone.  There is even a greater danger much closer to home than you might think!  Your friends and your family.  Family get to gether’s, parties, birthdays, a night on the town with friends, your daily telephone conversations, your internet chats.  Not forgetting the people with whom you work, at school, on public transport, in waiting rooms etc.  What do you talk about, what do you listen to?  If you profess to being a born again Christian then I am sure you all do what God expects of you, even more so when you are in the company of your Christian brothers and sisters.

Galatians 6:10.   Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are in the household of faith.

As a born again Christian you have an obligation to God, to spread the Gospel at every opportunity, and as good upstanding Christians, surely you have done your work well.  With so many people around you, and all of them knowing who you are, I am sure they all stand behind you and your faith 100%. So how many of them are standing behind you in Church each Sunday?   What do you discuss when you are with your Christian brothers and sisters, is it Spiritual or worldly matters?  Are you remaining faithful to your calling or are you like so many others who only grumble and complain about others.  Are you maybe one of those who is constantly in disagreement with your leaders sermons, or not happy with the way someone dresses or even where they sit in Church.  Don’t worry, this is normal behavior for today’s born again Christians.  After all this is what Church is all about these days.

When we look at the state of our faith in this way we can clearly see that something is not quite right.  We seem to see that Christians are having fellowship with both believers and unbelievers, in other words you are enjoying the best of both worlds.  Well God is none too happy with this. 


What we need to understand is the difference between whom we class as unbelievers and who God classes as unbelievers.  Everyone on this earth who has sin in their heart is an unbeliever, they don’t believe in the righteousness of God because they know nothing about it.  The reason for this is because there is no one with the proper knowledge of these Spiritual matters to tell them. This is why the worlds Churches are in the state they are in today.    They are full of born again sinners.

Hosea 4:6-9  Explains this predicament to the letter.  So in reality, in God’s eyes everyone who does not believe in His righteousness is a sinner destined for hell.  So as self-proclaimed born again Christians you have preached the gospel to all your friends and family and to everyone you come in contact with, you have done your work well.  Who then do these people become when they refuse to accept the gospel you have given them?  These are the ones who stand 100% behind you but not next to you.  They are the ones who are the worst kind of sinners because they accept what you say but reject what you have given them.  So why then do you continue to seek fellowship with those who are according to God, the living dead? Compare these people to the thousands who followed Jesus because He was healing them, feeding them, giving them to drink. When Jesus turned off the tap and asked His followers to do something for Him, eat His flesh and drink His blood, they all left Him. These are the what’s in it for me Christians, just like those who you keep company with.

Luke 10:10-12.   But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into the streets and say, The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the Kingdom of God has come near you. But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.

It is through the lack of knowledge of the only true gospel which Jesus and His disciples preached that the world does not know the true meaning of the righteousness of God.

Matthew 3:15.   Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.

The moment that John the Baptist laid his hands on the head of Jesus in the Jordan river, all the sin of this world was transferred onto Him.  This is the moment that our Lord became the righteousness of God.

So who are the unbelievers of today, why do you say you must wait for the right moment, and choose whom you think deserve to be saved or not?

John 4:34-38.   Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.  Do you not say, There are still four months and then comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!  And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.  For in this saying is true: One sows and another reaps.  I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.

Our Lord is telling us here that now just as then we go around picking and choosing which days and times and to whom to preach the gospel, this we do to save souls according to our way of thinking without first asking God.  This way we are only making our own judgments on others.  We say the time, the place or a person is not yet ready to receive salvation.  The truth is, the moment that our Lord became the righteousness of God, every single person on this earth is just waiting to be harvested.  The price for the harvest has already been paid for by the servants of God who lived in previous generations. They are the ones who died trying to protect the word of God. They have accomplished their labors. Those of you who profess to be born again without the knowledge of this truth, then all your labors are in vain, you are only reaping sinners.

2 Corinthians 6:14-15.   Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?  And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or which part has a believer with an unbeliever?

The Question I ask you today is this, if you profess to be one of the worldly born again Christians, then why do you still insist in having fellowship with the dead?  The unbelievers.  The proof of this truth is in your conversations with the unbelievers.  You discuss all your problems and make all your plans with the dead, you don’t even trust in the God you profess to worship.  You are playing with fire and you will be burned.  When you clamp on fast to those who have rejected Christ they will pull you down with them because you feel sorry for them.  This is where Satan accomplishes his greatest works.  Don’t you understand what God is telling you?

2 Corinthians 6:16-18.    And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the living temple of God. As God has said:  I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.  Therefore Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Just look at what Saul hears from the dead prophet Samuel. After seeking council from a medium.

1 Samuel 28:18.   Because you did not obey the voice of the Lord nor execute His fierce wrath upon Amalek…..

Look at what the rich man hears from Father Abraham in Luke 16: 19-31.   Here you can see that the dead cannot help you.  They did not believe the words of Moses or the prophets, and this is why they don’t believe you now.  But still you cling to those who cannot help you.

You will become just like the company you keep.  The only way you can beat the attacks of Satan is with the power from the Holy Spirit, if He dwells within you.  There is one way and one way only to receive God’s Holy Spirit, and that is to become truly born again out of the gospel of the water and the Spirit.

1 Peter 5:8-9.   Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Only a truly born again Saint who has been born again of the gospel of the water and the Spirit has this knowledge. We are the ones who are harvesting what has already been sown. 

John 3:5.   Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.

John 1:29.   Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

1 Peter 3:21.   There is also an antitype which now saves us-baptism ( not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God ), through the resurrection of Christ.

This is the flesh we must eat and the blood we must drink, this is the righteousness of God we must believe in.  The baptism that Jesus received from John the Baptist is Jesus ’flesh.  Without this baptism, nailing Jesus to the cross would have had no meaning.  The sins of the world had first to be transferred onto the offer Lamb before it could bleed to death.  When we know this secret we are eating the food for our souls.

So stop looking for life among the dead, there you will only find heartbreak and disappointment, and in the end you will only feel sorry for them.  And when the time comes to let them go, you can’t, you will only be destroyed with them.

If you truly want to find your life then please don’t hesitate to order our free books on the Gospel of the water and the Spirit, written by Rev. Paul C. Jong.  What you will find in these life giving books you will not find with the dead. These books will lead you to read in your own Bible all the things the dead are unable to tell you.
