How often do we search for answers and find nothing of use? How often are we given advice, only to find that it is worthless, in terms of the situation at hand? Many have had problems and seek out their individual Pastors or Physicians, sometimes both, even Dear Abbey, yet nothing changes. It’s almost as if the present world and those in it, are working tirelessly against us and we ask “Why”?
We seek things that sometimes we should not, things best left alone. Teens, are many times, overwhelmed by the world and this life we are living. To the point they begin to ask questions, of course they usually never ask an adult, for fear of being ridiculed for the absence of experience and knowledge on a particular subject or situation. They fear the onset of “being Laughed at” for their questions?
In many situations, it would appear these are the questions asked by individuals that may see something or experience something they do not understand. The ridicule after wards or maybe the thought of being seen as dumb, is more than they are willing to deal with. So in time they choose not to ask anyone, thus they begin a quest of sorts to answer what they fail to understand, in some case to their horrible disappointment.
I have listened to some people discuss their questions to a degree. Making sure that it is of a Friend or acquaintance they know, rather than themselves, thus deflecting ridicule. The question then is, is the one with all the questions wrong or those that ridicule them? I already know that the worst question is always the one never asked, thus no real answer is available. Disappointment then invades their mind and slowly erodes the good. It is not hard to see the Prideful attitudes of others, when in most cases they have no answer either. Most real Believers and followers of Jesus Christ, already know an answer to everything, ask Jesus Christ or seek your answers within the confines of the Word of God.
Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
Ecclesiastes 2:16 “For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool forever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten. And how dieth the wise man? as the fool.”
Mark 8:36 and / or Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
I bring this passage of text from the Word of God for a reason. It would seem that “The Paranormal” is something really big these days. And why shouldn’t it be, considering the approaching Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ! There is no doubt in my mind that, people everywhere are wondering what is really going on with our planet, why are so many dying in various accidents? From the Wise to the Fool, questions are being asked and no one has the answers, or so they think. The tragedies are heart-breaking and most sobering, especially for those directly effected. And yet according to some statistics the adventure to a Psychic or fortune teller is the order of the day and used by far too many, instead opf the Word of God.
Leviticus 20:6 “And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”
Don’t ya just hate those “Ooops Moments??”
And so, why do so many get that Creepy feeling everytime they see one of these people? Do you think for one moment, that your mind is being told something here, that you should seek another avenue instead of this one? These people are NOT in contact with Loving Members that have passed on or even a ghost! They are in league with Unclean Spirits, that you know inherently, you should leave alone. As a matter of fact, you should be running in the other direction, if not for your personal safety then maybe for your Spirits sake. Alas, it is apparent, too many wish to continue the search for a “Ghost or other paranormal entity.” The verses above should be a wake-up call to seek Jesus Christ, to be patient, to seek His Wisdom and Discernement, instead of messing with things you do not understand.
Matthew 8:28-32 “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.”
Mark 5:1-13 “And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.”
These two passages of Scripture are almost the same, same situation and yet told by two different people that witnessed it. The point is that “Unclean Spirits” are always around us, waiting and watching for a moment of weakness, to charge in and destroy us. Such is the goal of satan and his ilk, they hate us because the Lord God loves us.
Why is it so difficult for us to reference the Word of God, when things go seriously wrong? Why would we seek the advice of another human, when we already know this species of humans are a fallen species? It simply does not make any sense to me! “Well, lets go and ask Don for the answer, he’s a solid thinking man.” Duh! Don’t ask me, I am as fallen as you are, or haven’t you figured this out yet? What you should do, is hit your knees, put your hands together and in all humility, go before Jesus Christ, who is God and ask Him!! Of course, we can’t do that! What, are you crazy or something?? Be in Humility, who, me?! Yuppers…YOU! You are in the presence of God Almighty, creator of all things, including you and I!
Be it known, it is the Holy Spirit that stands between you and these evil Spirits, until the day that the Lord comes for those that love and follow Him. At that time, the Rapture, the Holy Spirit will be removed. After this, you can count on things really getting wierd! Ghost hunters beware, you will then get exactly what you want, if not more than you could ever expect. Chances are, it will cost your Life!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
