Happy Halloween

Ghosts, goblins, demons, and vampires celebrate their day Halloween. Are they real? Let me qualify the answer a moment. First, a reality.

Behind them all are demons. Different demons have different capacities. One is to speak though individuals. A very extremely rare reality. We had a worship service in which a man came forward and asked to testify. Another voice came from him as he began to use profanity and vulgarity. I got right in his face and in a loud voice said, “By the power of the shed blood of Jesus Christ I command you to shut up.” Immediately he went silent and limp. He was escorted out.

Another form is to physically manifest themselves as people. Both are deceptive.

In the White House there is a demon who presents himself as the ghost of Abraham Lincoln. Though he represents himself as Lincoln, he is not Lincoln. Lincoln is in heaven or hell, not on earth.

As a guest in the Lincoln bedroom in the White House, I was told of the ghost of Lincoln while sitting on the Lincoln bed. Across the hall from the bedroom is the Queen’s bedroom. My host said the doors of both bedrooms across the hall from each were open.  As the Queen sat on her bed and looked up Lincoln came and sat on the bed where I was. President Kennedy allegedly saw the ghost in the hall of the living quarters. There have been five other appearances.

That was not Abraham Lincoln, nor the spirit of any other deceased person. On earth with Lincoln during his lifetime there were demons. As we are unaware of demons in our life sphere doubtless Lincoln was unaware of them. They however observed him, his appearance, style, his total persona. They would have known how to best be his doppelgänger, lookalike. A satanic ploy to confuse persons such a demon does occasionally manifest himself. What better place or person to fraudulently represent. One reason is to spread fear and support false doctrine.

Not all thought to be demon possession is. Some other conditions prevail. Demon obsession is when a person is obsessed with the subject. Halloween stimulates this. A third factor is demon oppression involving demons causing oppressions. Got it: demon possession, demon obsessing, and demon oppression. 

Here is our manual of defense in the Lord and in the power of His might. “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” 

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6: 10 – 17)
