I have a friend who sees people who have passed away. Like she can see, hear, and talk to them. This isnt fake, she really can. She recently told me that she sees my deceased grandfather at our ball games. She cannot see her mother who died a few years ago, which frustrates her. She isn't religious. Does the bible say anything about this? Is this absolutely impossible? What does this mean about the people she sees like my grandfather? Some would say he "hasnt crossed over into the after world". Im almost positive he was saved though. thanks
I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but the bible calls this necromancy and describes it as an "abominable practice":
To inquire of the dead is to intentionally initiate this activity, and a medium is someone who engages in necromancy professionally.
Unfortunately, your friend's experiences are most likely due to the influence of a demonic spirit as per the slave girl in Phillipi. Her visions and conversations may seem very real to her and she may even receive special knowledge that she would not have access to through natural means. This doesn't mean that she is really seeing dead people however - demons can and do deceive people about such matters. I suggest you seek pastoral counsel for the best way to help her.
