Not Just An American Haunting
If you Google the phrase ‘true hauntings from around the world’, you begin to get a picture of the reality we live in. With over 5 million links, it definitely paints a gruesome picture. I am not making light of this issue, by far. I want people to realize that this is becoming more of an authority issue, and one must take authority in the name of Jesus Christ to rid their lives of these kinds of influences.
Recently, I began viewing “An American Haunting” even after some years gone by, but it was just as intense as I remembered it to be. The supernatural and unseen forces within and around the home began as strange sounds and experiences. The movie was supposedly based on true events of the “Legend of The Bell Witch” that have been validated by the State of Tennessee and President Andrew Jackson as the only case in United States history where a spirit or entity caused the death of a man.
“I would rather face the whole British army, than face the Bell Witch again!”
-Andrew Jackson, President of the United States
Many people believe that the Bell Witch is still in Adams, Tennessee, in a cave that is located in what used to be the Bell family property. This link will send you to not only the comments of the writer, director, and producer of this film but also to others who have visited this area.
This is but one of the past haunting’s which was eventually produced into a film, many others include;
“Amityville Horror”… http://www.warrens.net/Amityville.html
“A Haunting in Connecticut“
“The Mothman Prophecies”
Warning: this next links have haunting’s but also investigators and this is a VERY dangerous avenue to pursue so my advice is tread lightly.
Next are others from around the world;
Don’t Dance With the UNKNOWN!
This is not just some idea of a joke or prank. No, in fact there are people out there that not only have witnessed this kind of phenomena but are trained to deal with these circumstances. Lorraine and Ed Warren being two, but Lorraine has lost her husband, but she remains vigil in her paranormal investigations. Her faith constantly reminds one of the very need to keep Jesus Christ at the center of your life.
Considered a DEMONOLOGIST, Ed was one of the best. Lorraine is a trance medium, she is considered an expert after 50 years in this extraordinary field. This is not occultist work, in fact the very opposite. The reality is that this type of work involves a very deep spiritual connection with GOD.
There are others who profess to do this kind of work but honestly few who succeed on the level as Ed and Lorraine. Although I must admit I do not agree with her being a ‘medium’.
One must understand that the power of an exorcism comes from GOD, so the study of this filed plays little part in the actual exorcism. We as humans have no intrinsic power or authority without Jesus Christ. We, as humans, do have authority over demons only through Christ, only when we invoke the name of Christ and the blood (as taught in scripture) but it is the power of Christ, not us, that commands the demonic forces.
There are specific gifts of God’s grace moving through a demonologist that protects them from being affected or injured. Power comes from God and channels through the demonologist that drives the dark forces back or causes them discomfort. Only people called by, and specifically anointed by, God to have direct interactions with the demonic forces are equipped with these gifts of protection and efficacy.
Just having religious knowledge or faith, no matter how solid and strong, does not take the place of these gifts nor does it cause God to anoint someone with these special gifts. God gives different people different gifts of ability, and demonlogists are anointed with the specific gift of knowing when the presence and have the flow of Gods anointing to deal with them.
Like a preacher has a calling and anointing by God to preach, being a demonologist is a spiritual calling and anointing. In saying this, it is still over simplified in the saying. You earn the anointing, you pay a high price for the anointing. a price that no sane person who actually understood the price would ever volunteer for.
It is also a ministry field that requires you to live part of your life in a evil environment that often follows you home and attacks you personally, you and your loved ones. You live in a continuous realm of spiritual focus, you become a target so to speak. Most people go through life either never being touched by demonic spirits or merely being hit on once in a while, but a demonlogist is an active opponent of the dark forces and therefore pretty much lives in the boxing ring with them.
So part of the annointing is also the spiritual strength and stamina to handle the dark forces as part of your existence and life, and to still remain stable as a human being and more importantly to remain stable in the anointing. There is nothing glorious or fun about it, it is not a normal existence and many times you just cry in the need of just wanting to be normal, to not have to be constantly on your toes spiritually and to not have to be the subject of every affliction they can place upon you or your loved ones.
This is not something that any sane human being would choose to do, demonologists do it because they have to do it, because God appointed and anointed them to do, so therefore it is their moral responsibility to do it. No one chooses to be a demonologist, and any true demonologist would advise you that if you could choose, you would be insane and suicidal to do so and not go there. So in that aspect, there is no way for you to become a demonologist, God makes you a demonologist.
No rational person wants to interact with pure evil and put their sanity, their physical life, and their soul at risk for anyone but GOD.
Discernment is the word used to describe a spiritual gift from God that allows a person to detect the presence of demons. The gift of Discernment is not the same as the gift of knowledge or the layman’s term of being psychic. Psychic sensitivity is connected with feeling the presence of human spirit, or of detecting a person’s feelings or intent. Generally the people that have psychic sensitivity do not have discernment. This is seen most often in the trend of psychics claiming demons don’t exist because they don’t feel their presence.
The demons seem to be able to tell what gifts people have. They exist and communicate in the spirit all the time; they can easily communicate any illusion or miss-information to a psychic sensitive without being detected for what they really are. The classic example of this is feeding a false name to a psychic, convincing them that they “got” the demons name. This is to encourage people to confront or try to expel the demon with this false name, thereby overstepping their bounds. Demons never, ever, give their real name unless under spiritual duress.
You must have special supernatural protection and intervention from God in order to survive, remain sane, and be effective in religious demonology. It is not the human person or the priest who drives a demon from a person’s home or body. There is no personal power or authority in humans: all intervention, protection, and authority come from God on a moment-by-moment basis.
If you meddle with demonic forces without the special protection that comes from a calling from God, and without living in a way pleasing to God, you will know it from the outcomes of your interactions with the demonic.
Without giving up your life to God’s will, not your will, you will feel fear and intimidation in situations where you might die. This cannot happen as death is a real possibility in this work and that reality cannot be used against you to intimidate you or control you. If you are afraid to die in God’s service, the demons will know — and you will be crushed by your fear.
You are nothing but a vessel that God channels through to help others in the throes of demonic affliction. To do this for selfish reasons puts you in an arena with a supernatural force way beyond your comprehension with little or no protection.
Even though demons exist right along side us in this physical realm, for the most part they are not haunting places. That is a rarity in fact.
Although they were rare at one time, their presence is increasing, even more so due to the fact that we are in the last days.
