Death has been called the “great door to the unknown”. Since the beginning of time man has wondered if there is life after death; and if so what does that life look like. Of course, God’s Word speaks clearly to the issue. One key section is the ‘resurrection chapter’ where Paul teaches believers about the resurrection of the physical body after death. The other thing is as believers in Christ, we have assurance the world does not have about what happens after we die.
In out first segment Jay Seegert joins us to discuss the Grand Canyon and the evidence it presents confirming the biblical account of creation.
In our second segment today we cover the story of one Theresa Caputo, the self-proclaimed “Long Island Medium” who was in Green Bay last night. Caputo claims to speak to dead spirits, bringing peace to people who wonder what has happened to their loved ones. We’ll take a look at Caputo’s claims and see what God’s Word has to say about contacting dead spirits.
SCRIPTURES CITED OR QUOTED
Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For [a]when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 2 Peter 3:3-7
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Romans 1:18-21
“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. Deuteronomy 18:10-12
‘Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:31
Moreover, Josiah removed the mediums and the spiritists and the teraphim and the idols and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might confirm the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD. 2 Kings 23:24
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
