Do real ghosts exist? It’s a good question, but my answer is no. Whether you believe in them or not is irrelevant. According to biblical scripture, the dead are in a state of sleep, waiting to be resurrected.
How then can I explain the sightings and things like that? Well, I’ll see if I can explain it even if I don’t know everything in the world.
The Dream State
Where do spirits go when we die? If you consider that our bodies decompose and wither away after we die, and some of us are cremated in one way or another, there has to be a place, right?
I’m almost positive our minds enter a dream state when we die, regardless of where we are at the time. It’s entirely possible our “dream selves” end up roaming around until the day of resurrection, some time in the future. It’s also entirely possible that our “dream selves” can be seen when the condition is right.
As far as interacting with ghosts, I don’t think anyone ever has. Think about it, what would the dead want to do with the living? Our material obsessions would no longer be their obsessions. After all, without a human body, a ghost wouldn’t have human needs.
Demons and Other Creatures
Now, I’m not saying that ghosts are real. What I’m saying is that it’s likely that demons masquerade as the ghosts of loved ones. According to scripture, demons do exist, and their sole desire is to be alive. In the Book of Enoch, a book of the apocrypha, the nephelims (referenced in the Book of Genesis) were turned into demons when they died because they were born without souls.
There may be other creatures that we can’t perceive with human vision. I would be foolish to say that such creatures don’t exist because I’ve been amazed by some of the things I’ve experienced in the last 10 years.
In 2007, I documented my encounters with what I can only call “shadow people”, but I’ve long since ascertained they were demons who didn’t like what I was doing and therefore, I’ve removed that post. In 2008, I documented encounters with one or more “uninvited guests”, by both me and my wife. Again, I’ve long since ascertained these were demons and I’ve removed that post as well.
People who have Faith
I hate to say this, but people who have true faith are always under attack, from both demons and other beings as yet unidentified. If you have true faith, however, the attacks have no effect and I think that’s why I haven’t been affected by them.
You can choose to believe me or not, but there are people who can see your aura, which is nothing more than a spiritual shield. When your aura is damaged, you can be attacked successfully and the attacks take the form of illnesses and injuries. With a strong, thick aura, outside attacks will always be unsuccessful.
The aura can only be strengthened in one way: Prayer, which is nothing more than a mental conversation with the creator of all things. Whether you believe what I say or not, it doesn’t matter because I know this to be true.
It’s hard to tell someone who firmly believes in ghosts that what he or she saw wasn’t what they think they saw. The master of deceit, the father of all lies, a being we call Satan, is always hard at work on the people with the weakest of wills.
There are two types of ghost stories: 1) Where the person who’s telling the story actually believes it and 2) Where the person who’s telling the story is making everything up, with the latter being a good yarn suitable for movies and other forms of entertainment.
Over the years, I’ve fathomed that people love to be scared, even if they have nothing to be scared of and it explains the glut of horror stories in popular culture these days. There are no real ghosts, except for those created in the minds and imaginations of people who don’t understand how dangerous demons and other beings actually are.
