Astro projection or an out-of-body experience is a well-known practice in witchcraft.  Satan gives the demonic ability to Astro travel, or to move via the human spirit through the spirit world, to all his male and female witches. 

Most pastors and other Christians know nothing about these phenomena, because churches confuse the human ‘soul’ and human ‘spirit,’ (which the Bible calls “the heart”) with one another.  As seen at the bottom of the previous page, the Bible teaches that man is a tri-part person, consisting of a soul, (brain with an intellect, will and emotion,) and a supernatural human spirit, living in a physical body.  The human spirit is where intuition, conscience or the perception of good and evil, and communion with spirits or demons, and of course, with God The Holy Spirit, are seated, (1 Ths. 5:23; Jn. 4:21-24. 

The supernatural human spirit body has various supernatural capabilities.  Paul taught in 2 Tim. 1:7 that every person has a supernatural human spirit (and a “soul,” mind, or conscious thought) as he described in 1 Ths. 5:23.  He wrote in 1 Cor. 15:44, “...There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body.”  And in 2 Tim. 1:7,  “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”  “[Thus,] the natural man, [the soul  or mind,] does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they foolishness to him, [as the soul operates on the physical level,] because they must be spiritually discerned [or received from the Holy Spirit into the human spirit, from where it flows into the natural mind,]” (1 Cor. 2:14.)  This is why, to understand God’s Spiritual Being, Word, Gifts and Ways, spiritually dead human beings must be spiritually reborn through personal faith in, and acceptance of Jesus, (Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; 4:21-24.) 

Jesus, in complete human form, also had a personal human spirit. In Mark 2:8 Jesus “perceived in His [human] spirit” that the disciples reasoned among themselves in unbelief.  When Jesus saw Mary’s grief over Lazarus’ death, He “groaned in His [human] spirit and was troubled,” (Jn. 11:33.) 

The human spirit that God created in us is a powerful, supernatural, right-minded or clear-thinking entity.  We can also hear and see ‘in the spirit’ with our spirit bodies, (Rev. 1:10-12.)  We can pray, sing, and give thanks with our spirits, (1 Cor. 14:15-16.)  Just as Jesus did, we can perceive and know hidden and spiritual things in our spirits, (Mark 2:8; 1 Cor. 2:11.)  On a much deeper level as our “minds” or human consciousness, we can sigh in our spirits, (Mark 8:12.)  God commanded us to worship Him with our spirits because He is Spirit, (Jn. 4:21-23.)  We can also be moved or troubled in our spirits, (Jn. 13:21.)  

What does the Bible say about Astro projection and Astro travel?

What is more, God described in Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 how the human spirit body can leave the human body (Astro projection) to ‘Astro travel’ in the spirit world.  This portion of Scripture says, “Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed…  Then, [when the silver cord is loosened in death,] the [body made of] dust will return to the earth as it was and the spirit will return to God Who gave it.” James 2:26 states, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without [Moral Law] works is dead.”  Unless Jesus returns on the clouds beforehand, every person’s human spirit will leave the physical body, and the soul’ or mind will be buried with the corpse to await the return of the Lord Jesus Christ on the clouds, (1 Ths. 4:16-18.) 

Still, while the silver cord that attaches the human spirit to the human body remains intact, the spirit can leave the physical body, (Astro Projection,) travel anywhere on the globe and return to the  physical body, (Astro travel.) 

Because Astro projection and Astro travel are such well-known practices in the occult, Satan uses the human spirits of those given to Satanism, or ‘merely’ to hatred to harm people, to attack, and to “remotely see and hear” their human enemies, (Rev. 1:10-12; 1 Jn. 2:9;  3:15.)  This is so well-known, governments even experiment in this way with certain “gifted” people to spy on their enemies. 

Witches always work with demonic spirits, as the holy angels of God can never be directly summonsed or used by humans; holy angels obey God only.  Thus, living witches can, with the help of demons, leave their physical bodies and use their own powerful human spirits to attack, spy, harm, and do many supernatural things to their victims and their surroundings, (1 Cor. 15:44; 2 Tim. 1:7; 1 Ths. 5:23, 1 Jn. 5:19.) 

Death follows when “the silver cord is loosened”

When a person experiences cardiac arrest while the brain (or soul) still remains alive, because the human spirit still remains attached to the body via the silver cord, the person can “return from death” when the human spirit returns to the body.  This is known as a “Near Death Experience” or NDE.  However, if “the silver cord is loosened” after Astro projection, the person dies, because ‘the silver cord,’ is ‘detached’ and the human spirit cannot return to the physical body.  The person then becomes brain dead and will be declared dead, (Lu. 8:52-55: Jam. 2:26,) 

Scripture also makes it clear that when the physical body dies a brain death, the ‘detached’ human spirit will not and does not remain on earth.  In Lu. 16:19-31 Jesus declared that, at death, the holy angels of God will directly carry the human spirit of the deceased either to heaven, or to hell.  He said in this parable, “When the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to [heaven,] the rich man also died and [was carried to hell,] and [his body] was buried. And [the rich man was] in torments in [hell...]”

Jesus also made sure we know that no one returns from hell.  He said, the rich man pleaded in hell, “‘I beg you, [Heavenly Father,] that you would send [Lazarus, the good man,] to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’  But [God] said, ‘They have [the Old Testament law and the prophets of Scripture,] let them listen to them.  But the rich man argued, ‘No… if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ But [Jesus] said to him, ‘If they do not listen to [the Scriptures,] neither will they be persuaded [even though it is possible that] one rises from the dead [and returns to earth to appear to people.]” 

Paul, apparently experiencing an out-of-body visit to heaven, “heard inexpressible words, which is not lawful for a man to utter,” (2 Cor. 12:2-4.)  I do believe God allowed this because Paul returned with the certain message that no one can have extra-Scriptural ‘revelations’ from heaven, (or from hell) as that would be forbidden knowledge while we are living here on earth.  Paul’s experience thoroughly proved that extra-Scriptural revelations of heaven and hell are deceptions. 

Astro Travel is frequently depicted in fairy tales and other stories 

The phenomenon of Astro travel is so common that it is openly illustrated in fairy tales where witches fly on their brooms through the night.  Aladdin, who flies on a ‘magic’ carpet, and even Christianity’s Santa Clause that flies on a reindeer-sleigh, are all depictions of Astro travel.  Another well-know depiction of Astro travel is the vampire Count Dracula, who ‘transforms’ himself into a bat and flies off into the night to stalk his victims. 

Satan does use the spirit bodies of living people to do some of his dirty work for the reason that true believers have authority, in the Name of Jesus Christ, to cast out demons, (Mark 16:17; Lu. 10:17.) However, Jesus’ believers do not have authority over human spirits.  Therefore, human spirit bodies of living humans can do a lot of harm if they can remain undetected, thus fooling us by masquerading as the spirits of dead people, or as demons.  We can deal with them by simply asking God to protect us against them, and to remove them and all their attacks from us. 


The ‘Astro-travel’ phenomenon can also occur in ‘near death’ experiences and is commonly known as ‘out of body’ experiences.  Deliberate occult Astro projection aside — countless people, who have been resuscitated when their hearts stopped beating, can testify that while they were in cardiac arrest, their human spirit bodies floated out of their natural bodies into the air, (1 Cor. 15:35-58.)  With a bird’s eye view of the natural body and its surroundings, including the people involved in the resuscitation, they could see and hear everything that was said and done. 

Those who experienced NDE often says that their human spirits strangely lacked emotion, (except for a feeling of complete peace,) until the spirit body suddenly returned into the natural body and the person woke from unconsciousness, coma, or cardiac arrest.  [Do Angels Cry, or Show other ‘Human’ Emotions?”] 

Someone noted, “Prior to the 1970’s, NDE was nearly unheard of, as most serious injuries resulted in death.”  Since the practice of resuscitation became common practice, patients often ‘came back’ from ‘death’ or actually, cardiac arrest, to tell of their strange experiences in ‘heaven.’  [One is only truly dead once one is brain-dead.  In cardiac arrest, the heart can stop beating while the brain is still functioning.] 

What scientists concluded about Near Death Experiences

In an attempt to explain away God and the afterlife, scientists concluded that NDE is a ‘scientifically explainable, natural phenomenon.’ They allege, “Oxygen-starved brains generate white light tunnel vision, while certain hallucinogenic drugs, psychological diseases and religious hysteria can produce NDE experiences.”  Under certain conditions, the natural brain – coupled with Satan’s power of delusion - can produce bizarre perceptions and unexplained experiences.  But knowing that the supernatural human spirit and the spirit world are certainties, I believe NDE is real

Strangely, even pagans say they went to heaven and saw God and angels.  Christians have extra-Scriptural ‘revelations’ of heaven.  Roman Catholics see ‘Mother Mary.’  Buddhists, Hindus and so forth all see figures relating to their religions. They all experience the ‘unconditional love’ of their gods in a flood of white light and a feeling of overwhelming peace.  But if they all are correct and they really met “The Divine,” what is the point of all their many religions?  If all these accounts are true, God must be very confused.  Yet, there is only One God, and His Name is Jesus.  The Jesus of the Bible said only Scripturally born again believers can enter heaven though Him; The Truth, Light, and Way, (Jn. 14:6.) 

I also view the heavenly meetings with dead relatives during NDE in a skeptical light.  All the verses that supposedly ‘prove’ these meetings, speak of deceased believers in Christ, not our unsaved, deceased relatives. 

When asked whose wife a widow or divorcee would be in heaven, Jesus said, “In [heaven] they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God.”  [Deceased people do not become angels.  Until the resurrection, the human spirits of deceased believers will remain disembodied human spirits,” Mt. 22:23-33; 1 Cor. 15:50-58.]  Scripture also states that our deceased relatives [no longer] know anything of what is going on here on earth.  After death, their undying human spirits are either living in heaven or remain incarcerated in hell, (Prov. 5-10; Is. 26:14; Lu. 16:22-31.) 

The spirits of deceased people cannot “come back” to comfort us, help us, lead us, or to minister to us in any way. 

Jesus did not say in the parable of Lazarus and the rich man that their ‘loved ones’ came to ‘take them home.’ 

Jesus clearly stated that His angels, at their deaths, carried them to their eternal destinations. 

Thus, when we test the many ‘revelations’ of heaven (and hell) through NDE in the true context of the Bible, we find that the sensation-seeking devil has his hand in everything, (Lu. 16:22-31.)  In fact, Jesus forbade us in the Old Testament to have any familiarity with either demons or the disembodied, or Astro traveling human spirits of people.  He commanded, “There shall not be found among you anyone… who is a medium, a spiritist, or one who [tries to] call up the dead.  All such things are an abomination to the Lord...”  (Deut. 18:10-14.)   

Let us compare NDE experiences to Stephen’s experience in Acts 7:54-60.  Right before he was stoned, Stephen  gazed into heaven and said, “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” 

No ‘white light,’ loved ones, or anything else. 

Stephen saw Jesus as he died; not “a peaceful white light” — or even the angels. 

When Paul was “caught up into the third heaven,” it is very important to note that he did not mention what he saw there, [if indeed he saw anything.]  “He only says he heard words that are impossible for a man to utter, [probably because heavenly conversations belong to heaven, and] while we are in this world, we [already have the] sure Word of God, [the entire contextual truth of the Bible.]” [M.H. Commentary]
