In today's technological age, it might seem silly for intelligent people to consider a spiritual world where beings we cannot see might exist. Oh it's fine to read books and watch Hollywood movies about the afterlife and spirits that roam the netherworld but that's all make believe, not the real world. In the real world we are taught that reality consists of what we can touch, taste, see, hear, smell, and that the spirit world is for those weak minded individuals who use religion as a crutch to get through the day. But what if I told you that scientists have concluded that there is a strong possibility that a parallel universe really does exist? Now, as a Christian I do not need proof that a spirit world exists, but it is my belief that God wants us to do our utmost to understand what it is He has Created. That being said, the Spirit World is an aspect of God's Creation that we can only speculate upon just as Rene Descartes, the father of modern day philosophy did. Descartes admitted that God was the Creator of the world, but he believed that the spiritual world existed solely in the minds of men. So I guess the question would be, does a parallel spirit world exist, or is it just a figment of our fertile imaginations?
I would suggest that in order to properly answer that question, we need to first realize that God gave us a mind and the ability to think on a level with Him, if only we allow ourselves to put the silly notions of men aside. One silly notion is that reality

Think now where you want to spend eternity!
You won't have a 2nd chance after it happens.
If reality consists of what we can touch, see, hear, and smell, does that mean that nothing existed before we were born and nothing will exist when we die?
“If reality consists of what we can touch, see, hear, and smell, does that mean that nothing existed before we were born and nothing will exist when we die?
This does seem to the public perception of history.
God is a state of mind, and of matter. That is the message.
This does seem to be the public perception of history.
When my father in law passed he also called out to his mother. He told us he could hear her calling to him.
I touch, see, hear, and smell in my dreams. Are my dreams real?
I live in a small brownstone in Boston. There are only a few apartments here. A number of years ago two old men lived here, Bradford and Jim. They were friends and had lived in this building for years with Bradford's apartment directly above Jim's. I knew both of these guys and considered them friends.
Brad died of colon cancer and within a week I saw something that I can not explain. I was in Jim's room in the middle of the day, bright sunlit day and no - we were not drinking. I was facing Jim and directly behind him was his kitchen sink. The faucet handle on my left turned on: it simply turned and water came out of the faucet as it normally would. Jim saw my reaction as I said “ Jim - the faucet - “ and he said “ Oh, its doing it again. “
He walked a few feet to the sink and turned it off. He said it had been happening since Bradford died and that he was also hearing a thumping on his ceiling coming from Bradford's room. Brad used to thump his cane on his floor when he needed Jim's assistance.
I never heard any thumping ( and I am grateful for that ) but I saw what happened in Jim's room. I saw it happen as clear as day.
When pressed, even scientists will admit that it is foolish to rely on our senses and our perception of the universe when understanding nature.
Nature is becoming more and more abstract as we learn more about it.
One night I was awaked by a dream where some female entity was kicking and pinching me while asking "Why did you divorce my baby?". I gave the answer, and that drean entity chuckled and made a comment about "the old family problem". The next day my ex-wife called to inform me that her grandmother had passed away during the night.
Several years later I had a drean where a strong male entity gave me the same sort of treatment. When I gave the answer he said, "Hmmmm. Just like her mother". The next day my ex-wife called to tell me that her father had passed away during the night.
I have several more interesting incidents like this. There is no doubt that there is a spirit world, and it can indeed interact with our world.
Leviticus 19:31 - "Do not turn to ghosts and do not inquire of familiar spirits, to be defiled by them. I the LORD am your God."
I'll bet Joe Biden used to watch Descarte on TV...did he come on right after the FDR show?;-)
I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing, but I don’t really want to be anything other than myself in this life or the next. Anyway, I’m probably worrying away a beautiful day out there. I’ll have plenty of time to be dead. The living days are short.
Maybe you should put a lock on the bedroom door of your dreams.
ive been fortunate to experience the spiritual world first hand as well as thru my toddler son experiencing visits from an uncle who died years before he was born...
it’s there, it’s real....
learn from it, God created us as more than just fleshly beings...
