Edgar Cayce Readings

QUESTION: What are Edgar Cayce readings?


When Edgar Cayce would go into his "self-induced" sleep state, he would be asked questions. His answers to these questions became known as Edgar Cayce readings. Over 14,000 of these readings were recorded by a stenographer and are now available for viewing.

It worked like this: Cayce would lie down, with his hands folded over his stomach. He would then allow himself to enter a "sleep state." Cayce's assistant would say the name and location of someone who requested a reading. The assistant would then ask Cayce questions about that person. Cayce would answer with remedies and cures to health issues, predictions of future events, etc. These answers became known as readings. Some of his famous remedies include: "bedbug juice" for dropsy; "oil of smoke," a remedy for a leg sore; and "fumes of apple brandy from a charred keg" a remedy for tuberculosis.

According to the Association for Research and Enlightenment's website, (Cayce's organization), "The underlying principle of the readings is the oneness of all life, tolerance for all people, and a compassion and understanding for every major religion in the world."

Although Edgar Cayce claimed to be a devout Christian, we can rest assured that he did not speak words from God. You see, every prophet of God has to be 100% accurate. Deuteronomy 18:21-22 says, "You may say to yourselves, 'How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?' If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him."

Numerous Cayce readings were not fulfilled on the date Cayce predicted. Although many people report that they received help for their illness or disease, if Cayce was a prophet of God, his record would be 100 percent accurate. God is incapable of lying!

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
