In the last post, we talked about how people who die are essentially asleep, and how they have no more part in what happens on the earth after they have passed.
They cannot influence anything anymore, so they are not capable of “haunting” or “visiting”, like many people believe.
So if ghosts are not the spirits of those who have passed away, what are they exactly?
Excellent question, my friend. What are these “ghosts” that cause trouble and fear in the living people sometimes? There has to be some reason why people’s lives are affected by such presences so much.
What does a person who sees or feels a “ghost” actually experience?
They are actually experiencing the attack of demonic spirits. This is the blunt truth.
I guarantee you that 99.99% of ghost sightings, experiences of people who have lived in “haunted” houses, poltergeist experiences, etc. are evil in nature. The “ghostly presence” usually wreaks havoc in the house, and causes fear and/or harm to the person. This evil nature in itself proves that this is the work of the devil.
When living people start believing that there is a way to talk to a dead person, the natural human tendency of curiosity kicks in and starts to make them want to pursue them. People want to know what lies beyond death.
No matter if you’re an atheist or believer of God, or if you believe that you “become one with the universe” – whatever your belief system of the afterlife is, there is still this human curiosity that wants to know when we realize there could be a way to talk to someone who has already crossed the threshold of death. This leads to dangerous practices like trying to use the “ouija board” to contact the dead and ask questions.
First off, even wanting to ask a dead spirit about the past or future is something God does not approve of.
“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?” (Isaiah 8:19)
God wants you to seek HIM, not the dead, because the dead are asleep!!!
But if you go looking after the dead, the devil can and he WILL DECEIVE YOU.
Remember who the devil is described as in the Bible:
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
There are real cases of people who have used this demonic game in the past and ended up being possessed. If the ouija board really does summon the spirits of dead people, why would they end up being “possessed”? Shouldn’t the dead people have already moved on and not be in need of a human body?
No, possessions happen because demonic spirits are always in search of ways to enter and control the human heart. Where there is a void, there is a way for a demon to enter it.
The devil is everything that God is not. God is holy and pure, so the devil is unholy and impure. God is merciful, the devil is cruel and heartless. God is love, the devil is hatred.
Similarly, God is the purest form of truth, so the devil is a liar!!! The devil does not like being identified for who he is. If people knew who the devil was, then they would try to avoid him. But no, he hides behind several false identities.
He tries to make sin socially acceptable so people do not realize they are following evil ways. If he has the power to influence countless hearts to do and accept evil unknowingly, then indeed he has the power to appear in the form of a “dead soul” and use this as a means to possess a person, destroy their life, instill within them a hatred for God, and try to condemn their soul to eternal damnation.
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)
So please, do not pursue the “dead”. The real souls of dead people are asleep, awaiting God’s judgment day.
Learn to control your curiosity under the will of God. Have faith in Him for to care for your future.
If you ever encounter a demonic entity, or feel like there is an evil presence in your house, PRAY. The devil hates prayer. Continue to pray every single day and rebuke the demon in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Fight the spiritual battle and do not allow the devil to deceive you. Once you realize the great truth that the devil is behind all of this, his influence starts to get limited, because now you are no longer blinded by deception.
God bless you all.
