Mediumship is considered one of the gifts of the spirit. All through the bible you can see gifts where spirit has intervened on behalf of God. Jesus is an ascended master teacher. I encourage everyone to receive the teachings of the bible to receive a solid foundation. Jesus provided unconditional love and sought wise counsel by spending much time in prayer. To understand the bible, you must know there were multiple authors of this wonderful book over centuries, and not written by God. These words are inspired by God, but have multiple opinions of the author writing a given book. The church put these books together in support of their goal at the time, which was to make the church the ultimate authority, which is now known as the bible. Please consider meditation and critical thinking when you are reading the bible and the context behind the verbiage used. Scholars have studied the mystery of the bible for centuries. Explore your own heart and know that God/Divine Spirit comes from a place of unconditional love. Spend time communing with your source for guidance and inspiration. Realize Jesus came to spread the good news. The good news is you are able to form your own personal relationship with Spirit. I would recommend spending your time reading the Sermon on the Mount, the Beattitudes, in Matthew 5:1-12, and Romans 8, looking specifically at Romans 8:6, and meditate on these words. Also, meditate on the gifts of the spirit on 1Chorinthians 12:1-11. Here is a link to Bible Hub, and below is an except from Matthew Henry’s commentary, which is copied below. I would argue with his commentary, that all of these gifts are not just bestowed in the first ages, but are alive and well today. I have witnessed tremendous healing of the sick and salvation and restoration of one’s soul due to spiritual work and gifts:
Mathew Henry’s Commentary
12:1-11 Spiritual gifts were extraordinary powers bestowed in the first ages, to convince unbelievers, and to spread the gospel. Gifts and graces greatly differ. Both were freely given of God. But where grace is given, it is for the salvation of those who have it. Gifts are for the advantage and salvation of others; and there may be great gifts where there is no grace. The extraordinary gifts of the Holy Spirit were chiefly exercised in the public assemblies, where the Corinthians seem to have made displays of them, wanting in the spirit of piety, and of Christian love. While heathens, they had not been influenced by the Spirit of Christ. No man can call Christ Lord, with believing dependence upon him, unless that faith is wrought by the Holy Ghost. No man could believe with his heart, or prove by a miracle, that Jesus was Christ, unless by the Holy Ghost. There are various gifts, and various offices to perform, but all proceed from one God, one Lord, one Spirit; that is, from the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, the origin of all spiritual blessings. No man has them merely for himself. The more he profits others, the more will they turn to his own account. The gifts mentioned appear to mean exact understanding, and uttering the doctrines of the Christian religion; the knowledge of mysteries, and skill to give advice and counsel. Also the gift of healing the sick, the working of miracles, and to explain Scripture by a peculiar gift of the Spirit, and ability to speak and interpret languages. If we have any knowledge of the truth, or any power to make it known, we must give all the glory of God. The greater the gifts are, the more the possessor is exposed to temptations, and the larger is the measure of grace needed to keep him humble and spiritual; and he will meet with more painful experiences and humbling dispensations. We have little cause to glory in any gifts bestowed on us, or to despise those who have them not.
