"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Corinthians 11:14, 15
What people fail to realize is that angels have existed since God created the world. Angels are "older" than us, and older than our loved ones. They can easily know knowledge about a persons life that only we would know.
These are fallen angels masquerading as our loved ones, trying to deceive us into believing our loved ones are in heaven or hell and make Jesus to be a liar because he has clearly stated that death is a sleep 52 times.
There are many deceptions and Satan knows that one single lie wont be effective in deceiving everyone. So he came up with several. Some men would be deceived by Ghosts and reincarnation. Others would adopt an evolutionary philosophy, that the world created itself without God. Others would be deceived into believing in pagan gods, etc...
Death is a sleep, which the bible says 53 times. Also people who say they go to heaven or hell when they die is actually not biblical. The soul is not immortal only God is immortal and the KJV uses the word "soul" 1600 times but never once uses the term immortal soul.
For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun. Ecclesiastes 9:5
The dead cannot hear you, nor can they pray for you because they are resting, awaiting God's return. It's comforting to know that when Jesus returns we will be reunited.
"Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Death is a state of unconscious sleep until the resurrection when Jesus comes to awaken the righteous and the take the righteous living to heaven for 1,000 years. So if you and your family live righteously you will be reunited with Jesus when he returns.
John 11:11, 2 Sam 7:12, PSALMS 146:4, Ecc. 9:5,6
It can be frightening to see these things but memorize Psalms 23 and say it whenever your in fear. God is greater than a demon. He is stronger and more powerful and He is good. I have heard of people calling on the name of Jesus and their demons going away. However, God is a rational, thinking being, not a genie. Don’t think just because you say a “magic word” that everything will go right.
If you want to be delivered from this evil spirit, call on Jesus to save your soul from your sins. Give your life to Christ and find a local body of believers to grow with.
Luke 11:24-26: “When an evil spirit come out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then is goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
I sounds like you're definitely seeing ghosts. Don't worry, they're not around to hurt you. Quite often they just want someone to be AWARE of them. And some of them like to be pests.
We had one in my current apartment building that would drop by my apartment because he "liked it here." He used to just sit in a chair late at night. Eventually he moved on of his own accord.
He was not bothersome, so we let him be. But if you would like more information, such as how to get rid of one that's being a nuisance, please message me directly as I would rather not post that in this environment.
When we are sleeping/partially asleep, our physical eyes are closed and the logical side of the brain is quiet. Your third eye is more open and the things it sees are more likely to be noticed in this state. Some people "See" all the time, or it comes easily to them, but we all have the ability. Although it can sometimes be a little unsettling, it is normal and there is nothing to be afraid of.
I once saw a shodowy figure yell at me to get up. But i was still half asleep so who knows. I dont believe in spirits i dont think the source or god would let us suffer in such a way. But i believe in energy. Things left in by those who were once here. Have you ever had something you beloved and never let leave your side. That energy builds up inside of it keeping it there and people can pick up on this energy i think that creates "spirits" But i do know fear, anger, and love are all very powerful emotions. So don't be afraid for you'll only be added your own negativity energy to the room, home, item. I dont believe you are more sensitive to the energy but you may have not closed that door yet. We all feel the energy weather we want to or not. So i dont think your strange i more think you need to fill your home with a new energy and push out the old.
Very good comment Cloudwindgate!
Yes, they are sometimes called "Energy Impressions." I personally do believe in spirits - and usually they stick around because they're not ready to move on (according to my beliefs). They need closure, recognition, etc. etc. But Energy Impressions are left after the person or spirit has passed on. Usually by people (or even animals such as cats) who are deeply emotional and have strong spiritual energy. And they are usually found in a favorite place, most occupied area (bedroom, work, etc) or a specific location linked to the remaining emotional "footprint" so-to-speak.
Do you know anything about smudging? It's traditional practice that goes back a loooong way. You use a sage want to "clear the air" (get rid of negativity, stagnant energy, unwanted energy debris...) and a sage has strong antimicrobial properties, so you're clearing away airborne bacteria and what-not as well!
There are also options for protecting your personal space, bedroom or whole home. And as my friend recommends "Go around the whole house making a big racket with pots and pans, and Demand that they leave the place! It is important to be firm with them; Don't ask them to leave, tell them to go!"
And there are protective stones, herbs, salt circles (great energy barrier, and keeps away ants too!) and lots of other methods.
Let me know if you would like more detailed info on any of this :)
There is a gentler way. Take a silk scarf. Call to them. Go from room to room, Then gently let it flow behind you taking the ghosts to the nearest tree. Have food ready for them...even an old piece of Tupperware nailed to the tree. Put rice or fruits as gifts. Continue to feed them daily offering just a little. Those ghosts will then stay and protect your home. If you want to go a bit further, buy a spirit house. You can order one on-line. Every home and business in Thailand has one. The spirits are very kind when cared for.
I have a spirit house, although I find that plant Devas and faeries have taken up residence.
Have you found this method effective even for the more angry or vengeful spirits?
I know it keep the faeries satisfied and less mischievous!
