A big thing that is happening right now is all the “Ghost Hunting” that is going on. This is where people are intentionally going out to look for what some call “Ghost.” Many find this “Ghost Hunting” to be fun and exciting while they are being scared to death. There are two tv shows that come to mind that do this ghost hunting stuff, Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. My first thoughts are, “Are you all crazy? So, you probably don’t have enough problems in your life. Yes, it’s a great idea to go out “looking” for more.” Really???
I say this to you people who call yourself ghost hunters: “It’s a friggin terrible idea but you don’t have the God sense to know it.” Let me explain. A “Ghost” is defined by Merriam-Webster as, ” the soul of a dead person thought of as living in an unseen world or as appearing to living people.” In truth, dead people cannot come back after death to visit the living unless God says it can happen. He very rarely ever does this and when he does…it is to serve His purpose in some major way. O.k. so you might ask, “Are you saying that there are no such things as ghost?” I would say this. Dead people cannot come back to visit anyone at whim. They cannot be called up through a seance session conducted by people we call “psychics or mediums.” Once your physical body has died, the flesh part of you goes back to dust. Literally. The only part of you that goes on is the “soul.” This part of you does not die. It does not go into an endless sleep. Not at all.
Who controls the soul? What happens to it? God controls what happens to your soul after the physical body dies. He decides if you go into a “heavenly holding place” or a “hellish holding place,” while we wait for Jesus’ return. God forbids the living from even trying to speak to any person that has passed on. In particular God says:
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God. (NIV) Deuteronomy 18:10-13
For God’s sake people and really for the sake of your soul, STOP doing this nonsense. Why? Because God says so. That should be enough for you to stop, but…I am not that naive. I know that if you really followed God and knew Him you wouldn’t be doing your “ghost hunting” to start with. So, with that in mind, I say this…the entities and beings that people are seeing (who they think are dead people coming back) are really demons…yes, demons. Demons are real and have a great deal of power (supernatural powers). Remember, demons are fallen angels that God kicked out of Heaven because they became a part of the devil’s gang. Demons operate under the directive of their leader, the devil. They exist now, to do his bidding. And…his bidding is to kill your dumb ass.
The devil and demons can shift their shapes and appear like someone who lived and has passed on. They can appear to be “Lucky Luciano” who has passed on and now appears at the foot of someone’s bed in the middle of the night. They can appear to be your grandmother who wants to give you some advice from beyond the grave. The main point to remember is this… these are not deceased people…these are DEMONS.
So, what should you do with respect to demons. YOU SHOULD NOT GO OUT LOOKING FOR THEM. YOU SHOULD NOT SPEAK TO THEM. YOU SHOULD NOT ASK THEM TO APPEAR TO YOU. Why? Because you are asking for Hell to break out all around you & within you. What does that mean? This means that you cannot invite the devil in without Hell coming along. If you invite demons into a certain place, they will come. Make no mistake about. They are now laughing their asses off because you were ignorant enough to let them in. You see, the demons know (even though you don’t) what they are about to do to you and others in that place. They are going to try and drive you crazy by moving things around, scratching you, pushing you down stairs, killing your animals, sexually molesting your children, making so much damn noise that no one can sleep, turning people against one another, and so on & so on. I think you get the picture. Oh, yeah. You also could become possessed by the demon and lose your mind. I am very serious. If a demon possesses your body you will lose your mind if you do not get help. If a demon possesses your body, you will become very sick physically and the sickness will kill you unless you get help. The only way to become un-possessed, is by way of an Exorcism. It might take one, five, or even ten years of Exorcisms for you to rid yourself of the demons that are now possessing you. In the meantime, guess what is going on in your life. I’ll tell you…PURE HELL.
You might ask, “Why would I be susceptible to the demons possessing me just because I am ghost hunting?” You are susceptible because you have no protection against the demons. You are an ignorant sitting duck that is waiting to be plucked. And, plucked you shall be. You see…God is the only entity that can stop the devil and the demons. He is the only authority they obey. He is the only one that can prevent the devil & the demons from harming you. However, you have no protection from God. Why? Because you have disobeyed God’s command. He said not to try and seek out the dead and you did not listen. Remember this if you remember nothing else, “You reap what you sow.” The Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
If you do things to bring forth the devil & his demons & Hell, that is what you shall experience. God will not protect those who disobey His commands. Disobedience to God’s commands and His will can also cost you your soul. Remember, I said earlier, God controls your soul after you die. Now, do you really think you can willfully disobey Him, not repent & make it into Heaven. I would guess to say, “Probably Not.”
So…please…please…please…STOP THIS SO CALLED “GHOST HUNTING.” I don’t want you to wake up one day and find yourself…waking up in Hell. God may say, “You kept chasing the devil through your ‘ghost hunting’ & now I’ll let you live with him forever. Tell me how you like it now. Is it still fun & exciting?”
