GOD COMMANDED NOT TO MAKE REQUESTS TO THE DEAD
It is written in the Torah, in Deuteronomy 18:10-11, that God said the following:
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or who asks to a spirit of a dead, or a wizard, or who makes requests to the dead”.
So, we see that God commanded us not to make requests to the dead.
Therefore, it is a sin to make requests to dead rabbis or to Rachel our mother.
Yahveh bless you.
