Talking to familiar spirits is a form of witchcraft or divination where one speaks to the spirit of a dead person. This spirit or medium acts as a guide to the individual involved. It will tell or show the person things that has happened or will happen.
The spirit that speaks to the individual is a demonic spirit. It is done to encourage or establish a constant communication with this spirit. Practitioners or participants often report getting messages from the dead telling them about the afterlife, words from dead relatives to encourage a loved one, receiving protection, warnings, etc.
An examination of the Word of God tells us whether the Lord allowed this practise. And whether He uses the spirit of the dead to speak to His believers or the unchurched.
Permanent link to Healing Meditation – Romans 4:17-21
17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”
19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.
20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,
21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV)
1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

25 Worship the Lord your God, and His blessings will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you.

“Mike! Time to wake up! We are about to leave. Are you coming?” The gentle voices of my travelling companions, pierced through my blissful sleep.
“Hhhhhhmmmmmm, ” I groaned silently to myself. I vaguely became aware of my surroundings. The statements slowly ignited my memory.
“Yes. Give me a few minutes. I think I need to collect my senses.” I forced a smile on my face.
Getting up was a struggle. I had been awake for most of the night. It was not the first night. My mind reeled from the effects of it. My body was numb. Sleep clung to me like wet clothing. Slowly I began to feel exhilarated by the prospects of the upcoming treasure hunt.
The Near Year has started and already it is rushing to a close. At the start of the year, I promised the Lord to do what He commanded and read … Continue Reading Running the Race
Many Saints are earnestly requesting that I send the anointing, during their worship. They have forgotten that it is already in them. The gift was there. It was merely activated by the laying on of hands or the prophetic word. They need to learn to stir up what is already inside them. Just as Paul told Timothy. It is only then that they will start to grow spiritually. They must stop sitting like passengers in a car. Bound for a destination that only the passenger knows but fails to speak to the driver. The driver is the Holy Spirit. He is aware of all routes that can and must be taken to reach the final destination. However, He requires that you participate in the process.
This vision was given to me on Friday, December 16, 2011 between 4 am to 6am. The witness of the vision came between 7:30 am to 8:20am.
I dreamt I had gone to work but knew there would be a conflict with the Managing Director. So I decided to enquire about her whereabouts; before deciding which entrance to take into my office. I avoided the main entrance and headed to another entrance where I could speak with the secretary.
The secretary was seated behind a huge panel desk. She was busy speaking into a headpiece and entering data into a computer. As I approached her, the Managing Director came into view.
This is a vision given me by the Lord of Hosts on Saturday night, December 10, 2011, while I slept.
I dreamt I was living in a village. The villagers lived in huts, which resembled those of an African village. Huts were made from straw, wood posts and thatch. The villagers were farmers. They had an abundance of crops planted on various plots of land. The people looked healthy and well-fed. They diligently tended their crops, which grew in abundance.
While the villagers were reaping the crops a swarm of locus/insects appeared in the sky. They blackened the sky. Within seconds they descended on the crops and consumed everything in sight.
This is the vision given to me by the Lord on Saturday, November 19, 2011, between 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm, while I slept.
In the vision, I drove to work. The workplace was an isolated complex on a hill. Its parameter was guarded by heavily armed security guards. In the centre of the compound was a skyscraper. The exterior of the skyscraper was covered with glass.
I was cleared by the security guards. I parked my car and entered the building. All around there was an air of opulence. The workers all wore business suits and used the latest technology (tablets and desktops) to accomplish their work. Elevators and escalators took the staff to very large meeting/conference rooms and offices on each floor.
