Journal of Discourses 19:229-230; “The dead will be after you, they will seek after you as they have after us in St. George. They called upon us, knowing that we held the keys and power to redeem them. I will here say, before closing, that two weeks before I left St. George, the spirits of the dead gathered around me, wanting to know why we did not redeem them.” – Wilford Woodruff
Leviticus 20:6; “And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”
As children of God we’re to trust in Him for all things and not on our own understanding. When spirits appear and begin speaking to you, we as Christians should know these things are evil!!!
Anyone who’s done a bible study in the Old Testament would already know the Israelites had gotten themselves into a lot of trouble by consulting the dead. This was an extremely popular thing to do in the days of Manasseh. Josiah had the statues of these things torn down (2 Kings 23:24).
All this to say that when/if a sprit showed up in some temple in southern Utah, Brigham Young should’ve known better and denounced Satan.
Brigham Young either didn’t know what to do if a spirit showed up or he called upon them himself. Either way tells us he is unqualified to be a true prophet of God. Consulting the dead defiles the land and God considers it to be prostitution.
Can you as a Christian imagine for a moment what it’d be like if spirits were following you around??? How creepy and scary would that be?!?!?
