I was reading a post by a fellow blogger, who has since deleted her post, where she was discussing spirits and ghosts. I thought it was an interesting post, so I decided to give my take on the whole thing. This is just my opinion and I’m not attempting to force anything down anyone’s throats. However, as shown in my previous posts, I am a Christian and not afraid to say it, so if you disagree with Christian beliefs or are easily offended, I would suggest you move on to another post, because this may not be for you.
From my personal research and concluding opinion, I do believe that spirits exist, but I believe that there are good spirits, as well as evil spirits. The main example that comes to mind in the Bible where evil spirits have taken to people would be Mark 5:1-20, where Jesus cast demons out of a man and put them into a group of pigs. Those spirits were demons, which were the angels that fell with Lucifer after his rebellion.
Personally, I wonder if there would have ever even been any evil spirits if Lucifer wouldn’t have fallen. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, right?
Basically, in my mind evil spirits are demons, ’nuff said. All the ghost stories and the movies about hauntings and whatnot…..I honestly feel are just demonic habitations that people really shouldn’t be messing with in the first place, cause you never know what you could be exposing yourself to (1 John 4:1).Man has just commercialized it and turned it into something far from what it really is. This was the way it was explained to me: God did not give us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7), so why would He even put things like ghosts and witches down here for us to be scared of? Because those things are not of God! That is just another creation of Satan.
Again, this is just some of what I’ve concluded from my research. I’m not saying that I’m right or wrong; it’s simply my opinion. The spirit world is very complicated and tricky, and I’m not sure that nay of us will ever completely learn what it is all about until we get to Heaven and ask God about it.
