So often 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
Bible Verses: 1 Samuel, 9:9-10 Formerly in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, he
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
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 encased 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
Energy into the body of the recipient. Healing of the body and the spirit are displayed in these passages:
- 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.
Acts 4:29 -And now Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to thy 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
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:
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."
I 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.
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:
Genesis 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."
"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 particular:
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
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 someone 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
anyone 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
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
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."
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.
- 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..."
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.
- And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman 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.

be clothed in white rainment; and I will not blot

are not written in
the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev. 17:8 - The beast
that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up from the abyss and
go to destruction. Those who live on the earth

that was, and is not,
and will be present again.
Rev. 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened;
and another book was opened which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out
of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Rev. 20:14-15 Then Death and Hades were
thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second
death, the lake of fire; and if any one's name was not found written
in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Rev. 21:27 - Nothing profane will ever enter it: no one
who does what is vile or false, but
only those written in the Lamb's book of life.
Rev. 22:19 - And if anyone
takes away from the 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 Guidance:
There are literally so many
verses in the bible about the voice of the Lord being heard that I
went and picked out just a sampling. If any of

persecuting. But rise and stand 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

forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me."

there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away."
