Have you seen a scary movie about someone getting possessed by a demon or demons? Most of us have. The occult is a topic of intrigue among many. If you fear supernatural encounters with demons and ghosts, this article is just for you.

Intro to Ghosts, Hauntings & Psychics

Ghosts and hauntings permeate our society, yet very few truly understand the truth behind these supernatural activities, which are directly related to psychics and demons.

Hollywood loves the occult.

One of the most recent movies out of Hollywood that cover demon possessions, is the movie, The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins. That being said, you must keep in mind that Hollywood will make a movie about anything that will attract viewers. As you notice, most movies regarding demon possessions involve priests in the Catholic church that attempt to perform an exorcism on someone who is possessed - but don't be fooled.

Demon possession is a serious issue that should not be handled lightly, and it is recommended that you learn true spiritual warfare, and forget everything that you have learned from any Hollywood movie.

The truth is, if you have no clue to what spiritual warfare is, then I recommend that you avoid any involvement in occult practices period, because demon-posessions can occur if you are not a Christian* (Spiritual warfare will be covered in Dealing With Demons, Part two).

*A Christian is someone sealed and indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God, and cannot be possessed by demons.

Satan and Demons Cast Out of Heaven

In Revelation 12, the Bible describes a war takes place between Michael and God's angels against a great dragon and his angels. In Revelation 12:8, it says that this great dragon is identified as the devil, or Satan. Michael and God's angels prevail, sending Satan and his angels to Earth in defeat.

Satan is referred to in the Bible as the "Prince of the Power of the Air" (Ephesians 2:2) and the "Ruler of the World" by Jesus (John 12:31).

Satan is described in Ezekiel 28:13 as covered in every precious stone and jewel. He was the chief angel in Heaven, until he rebelled against God. It is important to note that Satan and his demons hate humans, and want nothing more than to destroy us before we can find the truth and learn that we can have eternal life through Jesus Christ.

A Common Misconception About Ghosts

A very important thing to understand about psychics and people who say they consult with spirits is that they don't truly understand what they are dealing with.

Disembodied spirits, which many call "ghosts", are not actually the spirits of people who have died and remain on this Earth. They are actually fallen angels, also known as demons.

We know from the Bible, that when Christians die, their souls immediately go to be with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8). The souls of those who do not trust in Christ, go to a place of eternal punishment (Matt 25:46, 2 Thess 1:9). Therefore, no spirits of dead people are left on this Earth to haunt the living. Instead, this role has been taken on by demons.

There are numerous television shows that claim to track ghosts, as well as people who claim to speak with the dead. Demons can be amongst us our entire lives, and it is very logical to assume that they know each and every one of us intimately, including the personal details of our families and every minute detail of our ancestors that are deceased.

However, once a person becomes a Christian, neither demons (nor Satan) can read your mind, because a demon cannot possess you. Demonic influence can be prompted in the unbeliever by demonic gateways, which will be covered in part two of the series, Dealing With Demons.

Questions & Answers

So why do people go to psychics and fortune tellers?

People go to psychics and fortune tellers because they just don't know any better. The world will have you believe that psychics can really speak to the dead, and fortune tellers can really tell you the future. You should beware that once someone tells you "the future," there is much more likely of a chance that you then unintentionally act out this self-fulfilling prophesy, than it really being your future.

Do you really want to follow the advice of demons that hate you?

If you "speak with the dead" through a psychic, and there really is a disembodied spirit, then they will lead you down a path of destruction. There is no doubt that the ultimate end of the path is death.

Since Satan and demons hate you and want you to fail, there is no doubt that demons will be "dancing on your grave" - as an illustrative expression to describe how much they want to see you fail and not realize your true purpose in life.

What does the Bible say on consulting such people?

Isaiah 8:19 (NLT) says, "Someone may say to you, "Let's ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead. With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do." But shouldn't people ask God for guidance? Should the living seek guidance from the dead?"

The truth is that we should not consult psychics for advice from the dead, nor should we go to fortune tellers, tarot card readers, or astrologists for our horoscopes. They will all lead you astray with false hopes and fake futures.

Instead of being led astray, you should consider seeking the living God, who has a plan and purpose for your life. His desire is to see you flourish and prosper.

what exactly makes you think that what you say is worth any more than what another would say, you've not backed up your opinion with anything real all you've done is selectively quote parts of the bible. doesn't the bible also say that jesus was left in the desert and tempted by satan so why on earth would believing in god protect you? it wouldn't. the bible has numerous accounts of christians being affected by demons this isa blatant attempt at scaremongering to get people to follow to an extreme. also what makes you think that the devil wouldn't infest the bible with his temptations it was written by man and influenced by god they aren't gods direct words so its very possible that, if Christianity is true, the devil would infect the very cornerstone of Christian morality and god would allow it as it could quite easily test to see if you are truely pure and just and blah blah blah. the bible has many contradictions in it if you read it in its entirety, probably because it was written by a huge number of people and its incredibly like that some of them were corrupt also it has been edited many times in the past and don't try telling me that christians are immune to evil and that those in the church don't sin of course they do there have been multiple occasions of priests doing heinous things in every denomination of Christianity such as molesting children and random murder and acts of violence in the name of god it's horrific what some extremely religious people have done and if the bible is right then surely many of these deeds would have been influenced by daemons. in addition to this i find it very hard to believe that an all loving god would create a place purely for the torment of anyone who doesn't blow smoke up his arse and worship him and do every single little thing his says to the letter, sounds less like a loving father and more like a psychotic dictator or a petulant child. articles like this are annoying as they just seem more like an attempt to manipulate people telling them they'll burn in all eternity if they even associate with people who believe in another religion but if they do everything you say and beg to your cults overlord for love and forgiveness even if they haven't sinned. pathetic.

and to Ben you are so right .a lot of people who claim to be Christian are not ,Jesus tells us you will know them by their fruit ,don't base your faith in other people ,they will only let you down base it on what God tell us and none other ,I use to believe as you until I got to know Jesus and He is the real deal ,he will never let you down and every thing He tell us and true and pure .

I don't speak lightly concerning this matter ,but from experience ,no man can tell the future ,if spirits do speak to people then ,think about this they9mediums0 would not have to ask you any questions they would already know but demons cant read your mine to they have to hear you speak out loud then they pick up on other things concerning your loved one .please if your loved ones were to talk to you they would tell you all about the after life ,but they can't they are who you are talking to at this time the demons aren't in hell and most assuredly not in heaven so they can't tell you about those things .so know this you are opening doors you don't want opened .
