As a child, I distinctly remember not liking horror shows, or any kind of scary movie. They gave me nightmares; the only reason I stayed around to watch them, while at home, was because the family was engaged in viewing them, and I was too afraid to leave and be alone in my room. I still don’t like them; to me they smack of occultism. However, as an adult, I better understand what is going on in the movies, as well as, in real life.
Today, in many movies and musical videos, the implication of and even the real duplication of depicting someone as being alive, after they are dead, is too prominent. It has confused the masses. Michael Jackson’s Thriller video is a prime example of what I’m addressing. There is just no such thing as the “walking dead” or “zombies”.
Many people would have you believe that the soul is immortal (we’ve addressed that earlier) and that their dead loved ones can re-appear and talk to them, or the living in general. But it’s just not so! That is why the next line in the poem is so very powerful.
Line 6: Moreover, all the thoughts perish and man is no more, and never ever will he return to his door. – Job 7:9-10
First, the Psalmist states, “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.” Psalms 146:4
The Psalmist is saying that whatever the dead person was thinking about before he died, it died with him. The dead cannot think, reason or surmise anymore.
Also, the following scriptures add to the evidence by saying, “For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope…” Ecclesiastes 9:4
As long as you are alive, there is hope for you; your life still has meaning.
“…For a living dog is better than a dead lion.” Why is a living dog, better than a dead lion? Because the dog is alive; it can still function and enjoy life, despite how miserably it might have to live. However, that’s it for the lion! None of its former prey need ever fear it again! Why? Because, it’s dead!
“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing.” Ecclesiastes 9:5 ( first part) The dead are in an unconscious state; totally unaware of anything.
“…Neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” Ecclesiastes 9:5 (last part)
Their memory is worse than amnesia. It no longer exists. The data has been erased! It is blank. They cannot find their way home anymore. I’m so sorry for those of you who believe that they can.
”Moses, the author of the book of Job declares, “As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. He shall return no more to his house; neither shall his place know him anymore.” Job 7:9-10
Therefore, please do not be fooled by ‘spirits’ that might appear to you and say that they are people whom you have known in the past. It is not true! “…They are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world…” Revelation 16:14. These are deceptive spirits of the devil. Don’t be fooled!
It is so important that you understand the truths of theses scriptures; because failure to understand, could place you in some precarious situations. It could even cost you your ultimate spiritual salvation.
