Spiritism in the Faith

"And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues." Jesus (Mark, 16:17)

Manifestations of spiritual life exist in all the foundations of the Divine Revelation in the most varied circles of faith.

Spiritism, therefore, in itself, ceases to be the surprise innovation of the times, but rather, depicted in the root of all religious schools.

Moses established contact with the spiritual sphere in the Sinai.

Jesus is seen by the disciples in the Tabor surrounded by illustrious souls.

The apostolic school establishes a relation with the Spirit of the Master after His death, and consolidates the redeeming Christianity in the world.

The martyrs of the amphitheaters abandon their flagellated bodies as they contemplated sublime visions.

Mohammed initiated his religious task upon hearing an invisible messenger.

Francis of Assisi perceived emissaries from Heaven, who exhorted him to a renovation of the Church.

Martin Luther registered the presence of souls from another world.

Teresa of Avila received the visit of discarnate friends, and is led to inspect regions of purgatory through the mediumistic phenomenon of out of body experience.

Signals from the Kingdom of the Spirits will follow the believers, affirms the Christ. In all the institutions of faith there are those who enjoy, who take good advantage of, who calculate, who criticize, who oversee. Those are, still, definite candidates for illumination and renovation. Those that believe, however, and accept the determinations of service that flows from on High, will be followed by the revealing account about immortality, wherever they are. In the name of the Lord, by emitting sanctifying vibrations, they will expel the forces of darkness and of evil, and will be easily recognized among the frightened men, because they will always speak in the new language of sacrifice, of peace, of renunciation, and of love.
