¿Se ha preguntado alguna vez si los cristianos pueden ser maldecidos por la brujería? Si usted es una de las muchas personas que sí tiene esa duda, no está solo. Muchos creyentes, sobre todo los líderes cristianos, enseñan que la historia de Balac y Balaam en el Antiguo Testamento nos demuestra que Dios no permite que los cristianos sean maldecidos por brujería. Pero, estudiar esa historia de cerca revela que las cosas no son así de sencillas. Obtenga respuestas.
¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

Pleasant near death experiences (NDEs) comfort many people who are preoccupied with a fear of death while frightening ones can intensify such a fear. Is God the author of near death experiences; and if so, does he use them as a cure for fear of death in those whose lives are pleasing before him? Does the Lord use frightening NDEs as a "cure" for wickedness in those who don't fear death, but who should because their lives are not pleasing before God?
Some people have chalked up these experiences whether euphoric or frightening as nothing more than the psychological manifestations of brain activity during the efforts of emergency medical health care providers to resuscitate a patient. It is said that the activity of the brain during such episodes is not completely understood. Others consider near death experiences to be mere out-of-body experiences (OBEs) that can happen to anyone whose heart has stopped beating and/or who has ceased to breathe. Those who have had NDEs, however, as well as millions of other people firmly believe that these experiences are real occurrences that take place on a person's journey to the hereafter. It is believed that the hereafter is simply another dimension to which departed spirits go to live once their life on earth comes to an end.
This other dimension, according to the real-life accounts of near death experiences, is paradise for some people and is hell for others. Paradise is often referred to as the "City of Lights" while the "Realm of Bewildered Spirits" is the name given to the part of that mysterious realm where a departed spirit finds him or herself in torment. Euphoric near death experiences always speak of encountering a being of light; some of them involve interaction with numerous beings of light who impart peace, wisdom, consolation, and sometimes they prophesy.
Christian Bible studies focusing on out-of-body experiences or near death experiences are virtually obsolete. Is this because God's word is silent on this very important question? The scriptures are not silent on any topic or question that, if misunderstood, can lead to deception about the character, work, and influence of the Lord in a person's life. God does not want his people to live in fear of death; however, he also does not want them to have a false peace or be deceived regarding their standing with him because, "...It is appointed unto men (mankind) once to die, but after this the judgment" (KJV, Hebrews 9:27).
It must be remembered that a near death experience is not the experience of permanent death from which there is no return to have another chance to be sure that our peace is a peace from God. In this Bible study we learn how to evaluate, based on biblical scripture, the messages from beings of light in NDEs, their teachings about the City of Lights and the Realm of Bewildered Spirits. We learn who these beings of light are. We learn that the Christian Bible shows us clearly how to evaluate the prophecies that have been given by them, and more.
Questionnaires are provided throughout the study to test your knowledge of the subject as you learn how to use the scriptures to guard yourself against one of the greatest tools of deception in the hands of the enemy.
We revisit the mysterious city of lights of which many who've had near death experiences speak. These people explain that this wonderful city in the hereafter has families just like here on earth. They say that people are reunited with their loved ones in this place.
Firstly, those who went to sleep (died) in Jesus do not experience the same resurrection as those who died in a conscious and wilful rejection of Christ. Revelation 20:6 says, "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST resurrection, on such the SECOND death hath no power...." There is a second death that those whose names are not written in the book of life must suffer (Revelation 20:12-15). The beings of light, however, make no such distinction between the two "types" of the dead. Also, there's the question of the family structure that supposedly exists in the City of Lights. But, what does the Bible reveal about life in the hereafter? We read, "...Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage..." (Matthew 22:29-30).
Finally, regarding the "prophecies" of the beings of light concerning a demoralized country, we see more disagreement with God's word. The beings state that man's suffering is...
The second chapter of the book of II Kings is the part of the story of Elijah and Elisha with which we are dealing. Probably the most interesting thing we learn is that Elisha received a double portion of Elijah's spirit, who was taken up to heaven. This is one of the main, if not the main, biblical passage that is used to support the belief that soul transfer, also known as spirit transfer, or walk-ins, is actually a Christian concept with biblical support.
