people have asked me about where in the Bible are there verses proving and validating the psychic ability. Often
people either need this proof positive themselves or have had others question them about it. Understand
that there were so many references to psychic and Spiritual gifts, that I went through and picked out the most descriptive
ones that best depicted the meaning, using the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. If you have
access to this wonderful book by James Strong, you will be able to see just how many actual verses contain proof of psychic
abilities as true Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I thought what I would do here is to list the Biblical verse under specific topics. All bible verses are from the Revised
Standard Version of the Bible:
One to whom divine revelations
are made in visions. (The Oxford Universal Dictionary)
Bible Verses: 1 Samuel, 9:9-10 Formerly in Israel, when a man went
to inquire of God, he said, "Come, let us go to the seer; for he who is now called a prophet was formerly called a seer.
And Saul said to his servant, "Well said; come, let us go." So they went to the city where the man
of God was.
2 Kings 17:13 Yet the Lord
warned Israel and Judah by every prophet and every seer, saying "Turn from your evil ways and keep my commandments and my
statutes, in accordance with all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants, the prophets.
Laying on of Hands (Reiki):
This is the ancient ability God gave those who are devoted
to Him with the ability to transfer Cosmic Wholeness of Spirit incased in God's Own Hands and then allowed to flow down into
the body of the "conduit" the healer who thereby places out his or her hands to direct the current of Blessed Energy into
the body of the recipient. Healing of the body and the spirit are displayed in these passages:
Mark 5:21-24 - And when Jesus had crossed again
in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside the sea. Then came one
of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, and besought him, saying "My little daughter
is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live.
And he went with him.
4:29 -And now Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to they servants to speak thy word with all boldness, while thou stretchest
out thy hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of thy holy servant, Jesus. And
when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and spoke the word of God with boldness.
Acts 8:18-19 - Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God,
they sent to them Peter and John who came down --and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for it had not
yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid
their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit
Acts 28:8 - It happened that the father of Publius lay sick with fever and dysentery; and Paul visited
him and prayed, and putting his hands upon him healed him.
1st Timothy 4:14 - Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophetic
utterance when the elders laid their hands upon you.
Gifts of the Spirit: I Corinthians Chapter 12:1-11
St. Paul discussed at length much about gifts of the spirit:
"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be uninformed. You
know that when you were heathen, you were led astray to dumb idols, however, you may have been moved. Therefore
I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says "Jesus be cursed!" and no one can say "Jesus
is Lord" except by the Holy Spirit . Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit, and there are
varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all
in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To
one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to
another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the
interpretation of tongues. All these are inspired by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one
individually as he wills."
Corin. 12:27-30 - Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed
in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators,
speakers in various kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all teachers?
Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues?
Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you
a still more excellent way.
2:3-4 - It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him, while God also bore witness
by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his own will.
Divine Guidance, Channeling, Prophesying, and
Speaking in Tongues:
44:5 - Is it not from this that my lord drinks, and by this that he divines?
Genesis 44:14 When Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house, he was still there;
and they fell before him to the ground. Joseph said to them, "What deed is this that you have done?
Do you not know that a man such as I can indeed divine?"
Exodus 7:1 - "And the Lord said to Moses, "See, I make you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother
shall be your prophet. You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh
to let the people of Israel go out of his land".
Isaiah 50:4 The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary. Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my
ear to hear as those who are taught.
Matthew 10:19 "When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to
say; for what you are to say will be given you in that hour, for it will not be you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father
speaking through you."
13:11 "And when they bring you to trial and deliver you up, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say; but say whatever
is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit".
So much is written in 1 Corinthians Chapters 12 through 14 about Gifts of the Spirit
that I would recommend reading it fully. Here is a sampling of some of the passages about these gifts in
1 Corinthians Chapter 12:10
To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another
various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are inspired by one and the
same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
1 Corinthians 13:1 - If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy
gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians Chapter 14:1 - Make love your aim, and earnestly desire
the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men,
but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, he who
prophesies speaks to men for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation. He who speaks in a tongue
edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy.
He who prophesies is greater than he who speaks in tongues, unless some one interprets, so that the church may be edified.
Therefore, he who speaks in a tongue should pray for the power to interpret. For if I pray in a
tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. What am I to do? I will pray with
the spirit and I will pray wit the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also.
1 Corinthians Chapter 14:37
- If any one thinks that he is a prophet or spiritual, he should acknowledge that what I am writing to you is a command of
the Lord. If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. So my brethren, earnestly
desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues, but all things should be done decently and in order.
The Book of Revelation to John which is one entire
prophecy. In this book it starts out with the first chapter saying in Verse 3 "Blessed is he who reads
aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written therein; for the time is near."
Genesis 15:1 - After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram
in a vision, "Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great."
2 Chronicles 9:29 - Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, from first to last, are they
not written in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah, the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo
the seer concerning Jeroboam the son of Nebat?
Joel 2:28 - And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and
your daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 - And the Lord answered me; "Write the
vision; make it plain upon tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its time; it
hastens to the end--it will not lie.
Daniel 8:26 - The vision of the evenings and the mornings which has been told is true; but seal up
the vision, for it pertains to many days hence."
Luke 24:22 - Moreover, some women of our company amazed us. They were at the tomb early
in the morning and did not find his body; and they came back saying that they had even seen a vision of angels, who said that
he was alive.
Acts 11:4 - But Peter began
and explained to them in order: "I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a vision, something descending,
like a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came down to me. Looking at it closely
I observed animals and beasts of prey and reptiles and birds of the air.
Acts 16:9 - And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing
beseeching him and saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." And when he had seen the vision, immediately
we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. Astral Travel:
Paul was recounting his out-of-body
experience as he referred to himself as "this man".
2 Corinthians 12:1 - I must boast; there is nothing to be gained by it, but I will go on to
visions and revelations of the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up
to the third heaven--whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. And I know that this
man was caught up into Paradise--whether in the body or out of the body, I do not know, God knows--and he heard things that
cannot be told, which man may not utter. On behalf of this man I will boast, but on my own behalf I will
not boast, except of my weaknesses.
The Book of Revelation recounts John being taken up in Spirit. In this whole entire book there are
so many references to this happening throughout his experience, that it would be best to recommend reading the whole book
with this thought in mind. In the first chapter it states in Verse 10 "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's
day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, "Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches..."
Rev. 4:2 - At once I was in the Spirit, and lo,
a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne! And he who sat there appeared like jasper and
carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald.

sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns that carries her.
Rev. 21:10 - And in the Spirit he carried me
away to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory
of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

Rev. 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of
life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

to destruction. Those who live on the earth whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world

Rev. 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God;

which were written in the books, according to their works.

will ever enter it: no one who does what is vile or false, but only those written in the Lamb's book of life.

words of this prophetic book, God will take away his share of the tree of life and the holy city, written in this book.
Clairaudience - Hearing of God's voice: Divine

upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you to serve and bear witness to the things in which
you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles--to whom
I send you to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may
