Do you believe that some people can see their loved ones after they die?

So many people say that they have seen their loved ones after they had died. Wouldn't that make them a ghost? I thought that ghosts were spirits that didn't make it to heaven and were stuck in the "in between world."

    1 John 5:19 says the vast majority of us are being fooled by Satan.

    When people see their 'supposed' dead loved ones, they are being fooled by Satan.

    Its something to avoid.

    These things are not evil, just that the people think that it's evil, they are scare of it, they lack understanding.

    It's in my family's blood, why we see ghost, some of my family have it stronger than others. I see or feel them since about age four, my son now is four, he's been see Spirits since two, they have been coming around more these past two years.

    Spirits are from Heaven. Spirits, are usually relatives, or Guides, some are Angels, they are usually either white and or glow.

    Ghost are stuck on earth, unless you happen to see them on their way to Heaven, they are stuck here due to negativity, the light from Heaven is positive, these negative ghost are afraid to go to it, the light.

    May the good Spirits be with you:)

    Revelation 20:4-6

    4I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

    There is only one event with the result of dead people appearing again...called's an example:

    Matthew 27:51-53

    51At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. 52The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

    i do speak with spirit but rarely is it my own loved ones ... it is for others

    they arent stuck anywhere , they are in spirit but can communicate with mediums

    a ghost is something different .. it is the energy of a person left behind ... like a memory

    and it just plays over and over

    this is why when people see ghosts they simply repeat actions .. like walking through walls etc

    they do not communicate as they arent consious energy ... just like a video recording that plays on till it runs out

    My dead father "visits" me in dreams. The dreams are very vivid and he usually just hugs me or checks my garden with me or something like he would have done in real life. Dead relatives that you see aren't ghosts they are visitors. I can't see my father, but I get a sense that he is around sometimes. A ghost is a soul that isn't aware that they died and bothers people (as opposed to visiting and being a comforting presence).

    No, I believe that those are just demon. In

    Luke 16:22-25:

    22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

    23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

    24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

    25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

    26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

    Those people claiming they see thier dead love ones are really seeing demons transforming into a figure that looks like thier loves one. Also known as wolf in sheeps cloathing.

    No. Ghosts do not truly exist in the sense that most people think of them. Wicked spirit creatures often transform themselves to resemble those who have passed away in death in order to mislead and draw people away from the truth of the Bible.

    People can imagine they are seeing loved ones, but they are not seeing anything other than what they want to see.

    There is no soul or spirit that exists outside the human brain.

    There is a theory which I personally support than souls live amongst us until the judgement day when everyone will be directed into either heaven or hell. Some people have the ability to feel, see or hear some of those souls living amongst us.
