    What does the Bible say about ghosts? More specifically, about loved ones returning to visit?
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on Genesis 22
    At death, a sinner suffers a threefold separation of his being:

    his body goes to the grave, his soul goes to hell (sheol), and his spirit ascends upward to God. [Ecc 3:21]. Each sinners death loosens another wicked spirit which increases the number of spirits that war against Christians. Ghosts are demons meant to "copy" the spirit of an unbeliever. A believer (saved sinner's) spirit can't return to earth. The body goes the grave and the spirit and soul returns to God.

    In the Old Testament Dispensation, upon the death of a believer, his body went to the

    grave, and his soul and spirit went to Paradise, also called death and Abraham's bosom. After the Blood of Jesus was applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven, the spirit and soul of a believer could go directly into the presence of the LORD (II Corinthians 5:8).
