Ghosts and familiar spirits – Demons don’t die, so when a person dies, the demons that have been oppressing them or oppressing them, remain here in the earth. Because they knew the ancestor intimately, they were ‘familiar’ with them, and they disclose knowledge, only the deceased person could have known, supernaturally. This is where we ‘see ghosts’ or have ghosts appear to us in dreams, as past loved ones. This is why ghosts can stay in certain families, for they seek to propagate a generational curse upon that family line. All these curses can be broken through the power of Jesus blood, when we renounce ancestor worship, and receive the life of God.
Ancestors that have died, are gone, either to heaven or hell. The best way to honor them, is to serve Jesus in this generation, the only true path to our heavenly Father, the Great Spirit, our Creator. He forbids worship or seeking of familiar spirits, the ghosts of the past, and would have us seek Him, the Creator of all Life, today.
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
As I read Napoleon Hill’s classic, Think and Grow Rich, I saw where Napoleon received much of his ‘leadership’ principals. He claimed to go into an empty room, and ‘invite’ the spirits of great deceased world leaders into the room around a table, and he would ask them questions. They would come, and I am convinced these ‘spirits’ were none other than ‘familiar’ demon spirits, devils that had operated in times past through the very people they now represented at that table. His leadership principals are pretty good though, I wrote an article on them, analyzing them Biblically: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2013/12/29/leadership-the-fate-of-the-world-depends-upon-it/
God hates this practice, and expressly forbids it in His word. Just because we receive knowledge supernaturally, does not make it from God –
