Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!

I have been wondering about something that seems to be taboo for a lot of folks.
Allow me to back up for a moment.
Nearly a year ago ( in 2008), my brother-in-law passed away.
When he was younger, he was very involved with Youth For Christ, and had a seemingly endless thirst for things of the Lord.
Sounds like a typical Christian to me, or what I believe one should be like.
Well, here is where things take a slightly different turn.
Steve (my brother-in-law), had a "gift" for sensing spirits. My niece (his daughter) has the same "ability".
I had thought for a long time that such things were from Lucifer, period.
However, when Steve passed way, strange (for lack of a better word) things started happening around their home. Even my great-nephew who was only three at the time, said things like "Grandpa told him to stay out of the kitchen", when asked if he was in the kitchen when grandpa told him that, he nodded his head and said uh-huh.
This got me curious about what I had believed for a long time.
Even though I can't recall right off the entire story, I remember reading about a prophet that asked God to open the eyes of the man he was with; and when He did, the man saw an Angel with a sword standing off in the not to far distance.
I know we are NOT to seek out psychics, soothsayers, and so forth and ask them to contact so and so, for whatever reason. The same goes for Quigi (sp?) boards.
Those things are against Scripture, period.
With that being said, I would like some insight/opinions from others about how they view this topic.

When people communicate with dead people, it is necromancy and that is not in any way related to God. Demons have the ability to sound just like people we love and truly want to continue to love. Demons pray on our pain and hurt and our desire to stay in contact with those we love and then lose. Satan after all is only able to trick people. This is one ploy of satan. And sadly I have heard an increase of false teachings about Christians being able to have psychic ability...as if it is a gift from God. That is not true in any way.

True communication from God will have the word of God intertwined in it. And discernment is a gift from God...that gift allows us the ability to know when something is God or not. The bible without a doubt says we can see in the heavenly realm, and that we can see angels. But it does not give us examples or say that we would see or experience dead people.
