Questions: What Do You Think About The Suggestion That We As Black People Can Communicate With The Spirits Of Our Dead  African Ancestors For Guidance.

 

 

Donald Bohanon: It’s absolutely foolish, and dangerous, and could have serious, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual repercussions. Any person who does something so foolish and ill-advised won’t be communicating with the spirits of dead ancestors but instead with demonic spirits and forces.

 

They would essentially be inviting demons into their lives and homes. Regardless of how they’ve been advised otherwise, they would be putting themselves and their love-ones in extreme physical, emotional, mental and spiritual danger. And if they actually happened to make contact with dead ancestors they would, in reality, be communicating with demons.

 

In such cases don’t be surprised if strange occurrences begin to happen around the house. Like things and items moving and such. In this case, you would probably need a man of God to cast the demons out because if not they can and will turn your life and the lives of your family members upside down. When relatives die they’re dead.

 

Their spirits are not walking among us communicating with us. That is a lie from Satan to deceive you in hopes that you may willingly invite him into your home and life, so he can wreak havoc in your life and destroy you and yours both physically and spiritually.

 

The body dies and goes back to the dust or dirt and the spirit (in an unconscious state) goes back to God who gave it. The dead know nothing and have no knowledge of anything and are merely awaiting a resurrection back to life to give an account for the things done in this physical body. Ecclesiastes 9:5, Ecclesiastes 12:7.

 

I would strongly advise against the very foolish practice of seeking to communicate with the spirits of dead relatives and or dead ancestors. God will never steer you wrong and he hates and condemns it for good reason. Because its a very dangerous practice that can have very dangerous and costly consequences.

 

God answers questions like these for you in his word. If you believe God you will never be deceived in such matters. The problem is most people will believe corrupt, carnal, men and women about matters relating to the occult, and the spirit world, etc, before they believe the incorruptible God.


Ecclesiastes 9:5
King James Version (KJV)
5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

 

 

Ecclesiastes 12:7
King James Version (KJV)
7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

 

 

2 Corinthians 5:10-11
King James Version (KJV)
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

 

 

Hebrews 9:27
King James Version (KJV)
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment
