I have goosebumps and raised hairs on my arms. My spine is tingling and my heart is racing. I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation, gripping the couch cushions with all the strength I have. I don't normally watch shows pertaining to ghostly adventures. It's not my cup of tea-watching people investigate paranormal activity and hauntings in old abandoned buildings, inviting demonic apparitions to communicate with those that wish to contact the dead.
My experience with paranormal experiences straight from Hell is zero. And I don't plan on ever delving into such an ungodly satanic "hobby". But for some reason I was attracted to Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures this afternoon. It isn't explainable as to why I felt the need to watch such a show. Maybe curiosity? And yet, I feel so dirty with a sense of breathlessness. I myself have delved farther than I wish into the realm of the dead.
I don't particularly believe in ghosts. You know, the Civil War dead guys that roam the battle fields, making fires, eating their hard tack, and playing card games. Those are cheesy Halloween stories that don't ever seem to add up, or produce believable evidence.
According to GotQuestions.org "If there are such things as ghosts, according to the Bible, they absolutely cannot be the disembodied spirits of deceased human beings." If they aren't deceased human beings, then what exactly is it that people swear that they see? Well, not the spirits of humans, I'll guarantee that. Yet, there is a possibility that there are spirits that walk the earth. GotQuestions.org also mentions that "The Bible teaches very clearly that there are indeed spirit beings who can connect with and appear in our physical world. The Bible identifies these beings as angels and demons."
I do believe in demons and angels. If they're recorded in the Bible, then they're real. And since Satan is still roaming the earth, I fully believe that so are his demons. It is recorded in 2 Corinthians 11:14 - 15 that "Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”
So, appearing as ghosts manifested in human form appears to be a capability that the demons posses. Whoa. Creepy! Here's what GotQuestions.org has to say about ghostly hauntings:
The closest biblical example of a “haunting” is found in Mark 5:1-20. A legion of demons possessed a man and used the man to haunt a graveyard. There were no ghosts involved. It was a case of a normal person being controlled by demons to terrorize the people of that area. Demons only seek to “kill, steal, and destroy” (John 10:10). They will do anything within their power to deceive people, to lead people away from God. This is very likely the explanation of “ghostly” activity today. Whether it is called a ghost, a ghoul, or a poltergeist, if there is genuine evil spiritual activity occurring, it is the work of demons.I hate to think that this is more than likely happening still to this day, that demons walk the face of this earth masquerading as "angels of light", deceiving people into believing that there are ghosts-souls of the dead that have yet to rest in peace.
