unfailingmercy asked: okay so I was reading in the paranormal tag, and I'm just curious.. is it possible for humans to communicate with angels??
That’s a perdy good question you have there!
- Gabriel was sent to announce to Mary that she would be giving birth to a Saviour.
- The Angels announcing to the shepherds who were tending their sheep, that a Saviour had been born.
- Also, the angels that came to Abraham and told him that he and Sarah would have a son.
- The angels that delivered Lot and his daughters from Sodom and Gomorra.
- And do you remember the angels that sat in the tomb of Jesus and told Mary Magdalene that Christ had risen.
Anonymous asked: Hey I checked out your paranormal topic but didnt see anything about mediums. I have been thinking about this lately because of that new show "Long Island Medium"( I know it sounds so silly) but like as christians is it ok to believe that some people communicate with the dead? I know the show is fake and all that but could things like that actually happen?
A lot of “psychics ” are known to be frauds. Research proves that psychics are unreliable with their predictions. In addition, some psychics have been caught using technologies such as caller ID to obtain personal information (such as where a caller lives) giving the impression that they have “insights” on the caller’s life. Taking note of documented inaccuracies as well as cheating activities, man people conclude that psychics have no power beyond the human realm. BUT, is it possible that there are some occasions in which psychics successfully note future activities or provide insights that would not be known by natural means? And, if so, how would we explain these connections to the supernatural realm?
The bible tells us that supernatural powers are exercised by two sources: God who grants such powers to His angelic messengers, and Satan, who in turn grants powers to his demonic spirits (Ephesians 6:12). Since physic activity is condemned as a sinful practice throughout scripture (Deutronmy 18:10-11; Acts 16:16-24), any instance in which a psycic taps into real supernatural power is an instance in which the “spiritual forces of evil” (Ephisians 6:12) have been utilized. In other owrds, a physic who claims to communicate with the spirit world is communicating with evil spirits (demons not human spirits). These spirits can perhaps provide information unkown through other human means.
Christians rightly oppose such practices, for communion with demons is flirtation with deep deception. however, we should not imagine that their powers are stronger than God’s.
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” - 1 John 4:4
Some psychics may tap into supernatural power, but we who know Christ have the Holy Spirit within us. And the power of God can punch all powers in the face with ease. Even the eagle powers from Nacho Libre! HaHA! I’m serious though!
In the book of Acts, a sorcerer named Simon amazed people through his acts of sorcery. However, when a Christian evangelist named Philip arrived and cast out evil spirits, Simon “was astounded” at the power he displayed (Acts 8:13). Simon realized that his supernatural powers were small in comparison with the Holy Spirit who worked in and through Christians.
So, in conclusion. Most psychics are fakes, frauds, you name it. BUT there are some who do communicate with spirits (not human spirits but demon spirits). There is no such thing as communicating with dead human spirits.
hessthelumbearjack asked: I completely agree with everything said in paranormal topic but what about people who claim to see ghosts. Like spirits of people supposedly still linked to that place or whatever. I personally believe it's unbiblical but one of my Christian friends buys into it.
Yes you are right it is unbiblical.. No one’s soul remains on this earth… ghosts are demonic spirits playing tricks on us!
Taken from here: http://www.gotquestions.org/ghosts-hauntings.html
Is there such a thing as ghosts? The answer to this question depends on what precisely is meant by the term “ghosts.” If the term means “spirit beings,” the answer is a qualified “yes.” If the term means “spirits of people who have died,” the answer is “no.” The Bible makes it abundantly clear that there are spirit beings, both good and evil. But the Bible negates the idea that the spirits of deceased human beings can remain on earth and “haunt” the living.
Hebrews 9:27 declares, “Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” That is what happens to a person’s soul-spirit after death—judgment. The result of this judgment is heaven for the believer (2 Corinthians 5:6-8; Philippians 1:23) and hell for the unbeliever (Matthew 25:46; Luke 16:22-24). There is no in-between. There is no possibility of remaining on earth in spirit form as a “ghost.” If there are such things as ghosts, according to the Bible, they absolutely cannot be the disembodied spirits of deceased human beings.
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. Angels are spirit beings who are faithful in serving God. Angels are righteous, good, and holy. Demons are fallen angels, angels who rebelled against God. Demons are evil, deceptive, and destructive. According to 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, demons masquerade as “angels of light” and as “servants of righteousness.” Appearing as a “ghost” and impersonating a deceased human being definitely seem to be within the power and abilities that demons possess.
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.
What about instances in which “ghosts” act in “positive” ways? What about psychics who claim to summon the deceased and gain true and useful information from them? Again, it is crucial to remember that the goal of demons is to deceive. If the result is that people trust in a psychic instead of God, a demon will be more than willing to reveal true information. Even good and true information, if from a source with evil motives, can be used to mislead, corrupt, and destroy.
Interest in the paranormal is becoming increasingly common. There are individuals and businesses that claim to be “ghost-hunters,” who for a price will rid your home of ghosts. Psychics, séances, tarot cards, and mediums are increasingly considered normal. Human beings are innately aware of the spiritual world. Sadly, instead of seeking the truth about the spirit world by communing with God and studying His Word, many people allow themselves to be led astray by the spirit world. The demons surely laugh at the spiritual mass-deception that exists in the world today.

Anonymous asked: Wow, just read through the recent questions on your blog, cannot believe how many people suffer the same thing I suffer, which is the force of the unseen world (demons), 1 time I awoken and it sounded like my door was being shut during this weird presence, i couldn't move, my mouth and eyes were being forced close,my mind then said "I REBUKE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS" and that feeling, when the demon flees, is so powerful,the power of Jesus is so real,i sometimes still fear that present :/
Yup its not something to be messed with… I had family members involved in very weird and demonic cults. But its nothing that God Can’t break the chains from! so Praise Jesus for being so tangable, yet so elegantly powerful in the spirit!
God bless you! and stay righteous!!!
