Rise in Spiritualism

Rise in Spiritualism
Prophecy
"In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits." 1 Timothy 4:1. "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world..." Revelation 16:14.

The Bible says
"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto The LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee." Deuteronomy 18:10-11

"So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to inquire of it; And inquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse." 1 Chronicles 10:13-14

Fulfillment
Many people today, including a vast number of the heads of nations, seek counsel from psychics, channelers, and spiritualists. Spiritualism has invaded the churches, as well, with the false teaching of the immortality of the soul.

The Bible teaches that the dead are dead, that the dead cannot communicate with the living, and that immortality is a gift from God given to the righteous at His second coming.

"...the soul that sinneth, it shall die." Ezekiel 18:4

"For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun." Ecclesiastes 9:5-6

"...the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality," 1 Timothy 6:15-16

"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." 1 Corinthians 15:51-54

"So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come." Job 14:12-14

The confusion surrounding this Bible topic began at the very beginning when the father of lies, Satan, setting the stage for his last day deceptions, preached the first sermon on the immortal soul. "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:" Genesis 3:4
