Can God deliver a message from me to someone who has died?
Here's the answer:
We should not ask God to deliver messages to someone who has died.
After a loved one dies, it is okay to miss them. It is normal to miss them so much that you want to talk to them. The Bible tells us that we should not try to communicate with the dead (Deuteronomy 18:11). God has already told us that we will see our loved ones again in heaven. Even though we cannot speak with them today, we will talk with them in the future.
Jesus knows what it feels like to lose a loved one. He wept when His friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). Jesus wants you to come to Him when you are sad and He will give you comfort. Even if your loved one has passed away, God is always there. He is ready to hear from you anytime.
If our loved ones are with God, this means they are happy and are no longer in pain. We will see them again when we are in heaven. Until then, we can remember them in our hearts and memories. There is no reason to ask God to deliver messages to them.
"Do not look for advice from people who get messages from those who have died. Do not go to people who talk to the spirits of the dead. If you do, they will make you ‘unclean.’ I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:31).
"Suppose someone looks for advice from people who get messages from those who have died. Or they go to people who talk to the spirits of the dead. And they do what those people say. Then they have not been faithful to me. So I will turn against them. I will separate them from their people" (Leviticus 20:6).
"Saul died because he wasn’t faithful to the Lord. He didn’t obey the word of the Lord. He even asked for advice from a person who gets messages from people who have died" (1 Chronicles 10:13).
