Does the bible say this?

the bible says to not be with your body is to be with the lordbut does the bible say someone in heaven can communicate with a loved one down on earth

um. you mean as in those who have died? then no. the bible clearly states that "the living are concious that they will die, but the dead are not concious of anything" and when Lasarus died, Jesus told his deciples that Lasarus was "sleeping" so. no. you cant talk to the dead. if you do...its spiritism. and that is detestable in the eyes of Jehovah God.

the Bible says to absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, it says nothing to suggest that loved ones in heaven can communicate with us.

Yes it is very possible. It is mentioned in the Old Testament but I highly recommend against partaking in the practice.

The best example was when Saul asks a medium to summon the spirit of the prophet Samuel. 1 Samuel 28:6-20, but later in 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 we hear of the result of his actions.

Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not inquire of the LORD. So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse. (NIV)1 Chronicles 10:13-14

other Scriptures that warn against it.
Leviticus 19:31
Leviticus 20:27
Deuteronomy 18:10-13
2 Chronicles 33:6

I agree with Suzie17. God does by the Holy Spirit. Go through the Holy Spirit.

The Bible says to not communicate with the dead through mediums, not that it is impossible. In fact, when Saul spoke to the dead Samuel, the Bible acknowledged it was possible.

Um that is what I said.

The bible doesn't teach this but it's not to say God can't or won't allow someone to come and show themselves to their loved one to encourage them. I've read countless stories where a parent see's their child who has died or any family member that has died. It gives people comfort and hope.
