Gift from South Africa asks:
Dear Pastor,
I want to know if dead people see what is happening to their loved ones on earth- if they are watching over us, and if they can send a sign or message to the living?

Pastor Chris Answers:

Well, it depends on where they (dead people) are. They are not in the cemetery; their bodies are in the cemetery or anywhere else where they were left buried in the sand or something. But, when a man dies, depending on the life he lived- toward God or toward Satan, in other words, did he know Jesus? did he have eternal life? was he a child of God? was he born again? - that will determine whether he goes to God or he goes to hell. Is he going to heaven or is he going to hell? So, the dead must be somewhere; heaven or in hell!
Now, there are some who are roaming around awaiting their movement, howbeit it’s temporary. That’s where you talk about ghosts and so on and so forth, but they can’t hang around for too long! For how long? We can’t tell because they are over in the spirit realm where time is not the same as what we’ve got here. So, such people may do some things that those in the earth can be influenced by and say “well, I think a ghost or I saw a ghost”, or something happened and then they think it’s a ghost. Ghosts are real! The Bible shows us they are real. But do they try to contact the living? Of course! Those ghosts who are moving around, who have not been taken to their final place of abode try to make contact because they are yet to understand that they have passed over to the other realm, and so they are trying and it’s not working, until they are taken away to heaven or to hell.
If you’ve listened to certain people who passed out of their bodies, they say they tried to talk to someone because they could see their bodies. They didn’t feel like they lost something and they tried to make contact. Now, does that mean that, maybe, someone is trying to contact you, so you make yourself available so you can contact the dead? The Bible tells us it’s wrong! In the Old Testament, God specifically warned the children of Israel to not make efforts to contact the dead. He says it’s wrong, don’t do it! Saul, the King of Israel did it and he got into trouble for it. God doesn’t want His children doing it.
How can a man that didn’t know the future tell you the future after he has died? Don’t think he’s going to help you. Don’t expect help from someone who has died: it’s not going to happen. He doesn’t know the future. What about the angels, do angels even know the future? They don’t! The only future you know is the future revealed to you, and you don’t have to die to have that revelation. Jesus said when the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, is come, he shall show you things to come, so, why not depend on the Holy Spirit instead hoping that somehow, someone who has died would tell you some secret things. He doesn’t know anything! He only knows those things he knew before. So that’s very important! Don’t be deceived by the dead.
There’s another thing- what about those who say that they actually had a revelation: they saw in a dream their father, their grandfather, their mother or so and so spoke to them? Make no mistakes about it; there are manifestations of the Holy Spirit in which He ministers to us in different ways. He can use the face of your pastor to talk to you, He can use the face of a brother or sister to bring you a message, a word. He does such things and He could also talk to you through the voice and the face of someone who has passed on to glory- he can do it. He is eternity. He’s not restricted! But here is what you have to learn: don’t try to make contact with the dead. Don’t do it! And everything you hear whether from a living person or from one that’s dead, the Bible says, even if an angel came to preach to you another gospel, he says let him be accursed! Don’t accept it! Which means, no matter what you hear from living or dead, check up with the scriptures, with the Word of God. Is it consistent with the scriptures? That’s what counts. So, it’s not more authentic because it was an angel that brought it to you. It’s not more authentic because it was someone that died that spoke to you, it doesn’t make it any more authentic. Word is word, irrespective of where it’s coming from. What gives it power is whether it is consistent with God’s eternal Word. That’s the biggest thing! If it’s not consistent with it, let it go. Very, very important! Don’t say, I got a dream and then it makes it more serious. No! No! To me it doesn’t matter who I see in the dream, if I don’t like you, I say, ‘Go!’. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. Glory to God!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR , THE DICTIONARY DID NOT CREATED THE WORD THAT I can qualify you but you are a gift to us; a precious Gift. The first time I saw you was this year in Ghana and you say that after this meeting things willl be happening in 10 year in our life. It will happen this year and even my familly who was laughing at me because I travelled from CONGO brazaville just for that meeting in Accra, they now believed that you are a man of God because the miracle has happened this year in my life. Everybody are just praising God when they look at me. I was in the last place in my company but after the meeting now, I am in the second place. I am now after the CEO of the company that have 380 workers. Words will not contain what I want to tell you but I love you ...and happy birthday.

Thank you Pastor Sir

Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor, Thank you for the ministry of the word at work in your life. Thank you for giving me a brand new life again. In June 2016, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and Systemic Lupus erythematosus, which are auto immune diseases that causes the body to attack itself. I had very painful joints all over my body. I had to like on medication daily, for the next 6 months, otherwise I would be unable to work or do anything. During the second day of the Partners Conference, you asked us to speak in tongues for 10 minutes. 10 minutes that will change destinies. After the prayers I started screaming in excitement, I knew I was free. Since that day, I have not felt any pain and have no need to take the pills again. I have not been able to stop telling people what God has done for me. I love you Pastor, Thank you. Sis Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor Chris, I remember when I was in Lagos in 1998 and I stumble on the Man of God through atmosphere of miracle on television. Since that time I have not recover, My heart has glue to you. There is something that Holy Spirit always communicated to me through you. Your embodiment, gestures, manner of dressing, SIMPLICITY, pleasantness in answering rude questions, spirituality in handling of matters, radiating splendour of PEACE of CHRIST,excellence,giving validation to the WORD of TRUTH BY THE HOLY SPIRIT throuh miracles. THIS IS CHRISTIANITY ! There is something at work inside you and I know I shall be a partaker of this divine grace of God in you even as I comimmited myself to the instructions. God bless you sir.

I became born again at the NOB 2016(SA). Before the NOB Ive tried so many things out and connections from the people in higher positions hoping they assist in helping me find a job but none of plans were successful. After being born again i could feel that i was different from the person i used to be such that i had peace from within though i was still unemployed. I spent most the time studying the Scripture, meditating on it, praying in spirit and i started seeing visions. Four months later i was invited for an interview and strangely enough i had a vision about that similar company, I got the permanent job. God is wonderful i must say.
