2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things.
One of the Deeply Entrenched Beliefs of this World is that Ghosts exist. By Ghosts I mean “a Spirit Life that survives and separates from a living person at death.”
Do Ghosts Exist
Evidence Against Belief in Ghosts: The foremost authority on Life, God, states at Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more reward, because all memory of them is forgotten.Then again God states just 5 verses later 10: Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave, where you are going.
The Bible was written by many hands, yet the Almighty God was always guiding them.When we read the Bible we should have confidence that the Thoughts of “One” God are revealed. One Person is Guiding us through the many pages. Our examining , meditating on each of the many pages assure Him that we are searching for Him, Who He is, what the Truth of Life is, what His purpose is, what His counsel for us is, how can we better ourselves and escape eternal death. Through these many pages we should always compare one verse that speaks of a profound principle with another, this way we reinforce the belief that He, who cannot lie, has taught this. 2 Timothy 3:16
So we have two verses that state that all thought and activity End at Death. (Death is the Opposite of Life) Are there any other thoughts that He states about this? Yes there is Psalms 146:4 His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; On that very day his thoughts perish. All that persons thoughts and memories end at death. Again God has stated that when we die our thoughts Stop or Die with the flesh. You might ask here”what is the spirit that leaves at death?” The Bible states it is the Force that moves your Heart Muscle without thought. When Adam was created God referenced this as the “Breath of Life.”
So, by the testimony of the Almighty God Jehovah “Ghost Cannot Exist.” So how can we explain activities that seem to contradict this statement? While Jesus walked the Earth, many times he encountered people who were processed by a spirit, a demon.
What Are Called Ghost are Really Demons
What are Demons? They are individual life forms, spirit persons with names, they are invisible, wicked spirit creatures having superhuman powers. They were created powerful Angels,(Sons of God,Gen 6:2) who left the unity of God’s Loyal Family and acted disloyally at or near the same time Adam disobeyed God. Adam was lead to this moment of decision by the foremost of these rebels known as Satan the Devil.(not his God-given name, but a description of his acts of disloyalty, Satan “slanderer”, He slandered God to Eve, inferring that God was holding back some good that she could achieve by disobeying Him and eating the fruit, she in turn invited Adam to join her). The evidence of demonic influence on people shows they have different taste, some enjoy violence, others drama, others sexual exploits, others mislead people by the Deeply Entrenched Lies of this World and by False Religious Teachings. Their One Goal is to Lead Everyone Away from the One Person who can help them, Jehovah God. Jude 6: And the angels who did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place, he has reserved with eternal bonds in dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.
What Can Demons Do
Demons can influence any person on Earth, either directly or by association in demonic activities such as violent video games or viewing pornography or Ouija boards or through another person influenced by them, such as a sorcerer or palm reader. The goal is always to lead the victim away from an approved relationship with Jehovah God. See 2 Tim 2:26 Satan directly challenged Jesus while Jesus was reduced in power as a human. It was only Jesus knowledge of and loyalty to his Father Jehovah that guided his proper response to Satan. Jehovah gives us insight to what Jesus was thinking by referring to the scriptural basis for Jesus dismissal of Satan’s taunts. See Mtt 4:1-11. , 1Tim.3:7, John 13:2, Eph.4:27
Satan is called the Leader of the Demons, Mtt 12:24, this helps us to see there is a group of individual spirits that are inflicting many pains on unsuspecting or unknowing people today.They have caused blindness, both physical and spiritual that you might not see the truth. They cause deafness in both ways that you might not hear the Truth. They can cause any kind of disease or “accident” for their own pleasure. While some of them were on the Earth, they created their own fleshly imitations of the human body that they might enjoy women and violence, so much so God had to force those individuals from the Earth. Gen.6:4
Demons Seen as Ghosts
Why do people believe in ghosts? Because the group of demons , along with Satan, have influenced philosophers and religious leaders to believe that life does not end at death. The most prominent men of the World under Satan’s control preach this, it is repeated over and over again by newspapers, magazines, radio, television and internet until the whole World has been misled. This flood of lies is referenced in Revelation 12:15 as being from the serpent Satan, to drown those loyal to God. Some of the disgusting ways men misrepresent the God who inspired the Bible are by repeating claims that “God Torments the Dead in a Fiery Hell” or when a loved child or mate dies”God took them.”
The Dead are Dead with No Thought according to God Himself, so how could He torment them forever? He can’t, the only torment comes before death, like in the case of Judas Iscariot, he knew all hope of him ever living eternally was gone because of his act of disloyalty. The demons themselves have this same thought, knowing they will soon be destroyed, yet the Loyal Angels will live on forever. The teaching that religious leaders spread is false, a lie, inspired by demons, that you might question God’s Love for His Human Creation and Hate God as a result. God testifies to this truth at 2 Corinthians 4:4 among whom the god(Satan) of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.
The Truth about Human Spirit Life
Angels were created Angels in Heaven to Live in Heaven. Humans were created on the Earth to Live on Earth. God Himself Testifies to this fact. Jesus did teach that some Humans would be Invited to Share his Kingship and Priesthood by God as part of the Kingdom of God. Like the Apostles and disciples of Jesus during his earthly ministry, these would live their life in service of God preaching door to door in one neighborhood after another until their death. This would bar any thought of a child being Taken to fill one of the seats. The ones who would be invited by God would have to Endure their fleshly life, what ever that is, under whatever ruler, until the end, with no intervention by God because one is suffering more than another. God exercises equality and justices without partiality. His Righteousness means Fairness for Us.
Those Who Become Spirits
There have been some 30 billion people who have lived on the Earth.In a vision of God, given to Jesus then related to the Apostle John, placed as the last book of the Bible, God shows there are 144 thousand thrones that He would fill with invited ones. Only 144,000 plus Jesus Seat of Headship makes 144,001 out of the billions of people who have lived since Jesus died and was resurrected as the First Man raised to Spirit Life. What are the odds He has reserved a Throne for us? Revelation 7:4 What Will Those Spirits Do? These Kings and Priests become the Israel of God, A Spiritual Government, that will rule the Earth with all the Equality and Justice and Love that God Himself would.
What Hope For the Earth
Just after Jesus relates the number of those going to Heaven, He speaks of people who will live on the Earth and where they come from at Revelation 7:13, 14 In response one of the elders said to me: “These who are dressed in the white robes, who are they and where did they come from?” 14 So right away I said to him: “My lord, you are the one who knows.” And he said to me: “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Are there any other verses that foretell survivors of a Great Tribulation? Yes the prophet Daniel did at Daniel 12:1 During that time Miʹcha·el will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people. And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book. These survivors will far out number the 144,000 for God is searching for and marking them for survival even today. These survivors are promised by God, that except for tears of joy “And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.” See Rev.21:3-5 then Isaiah 25:8
Under God’s Kingdom all corruption will end. The demons will be jailed, disappointed they did not achieve 100 percent of mankind to believe them. God will bless the Earth’s ability to grow the food we love to eat. Jesus will control the weather just as he did from the fishing boat when he told the winds to “Hush”.
The Kings and Priests in Heaven will heal the blind, deaf and mute. They will heal those lame and infirmed. They will restore the aged flesh to youthful appearance and vigor.They will teach them all how they can better their lives. They will lead this renewed population in cleansing the Earth of unsightly cities, weapons of war and military bases. All the polluted sites where factories poisoned the air and water will be cleaned. All this will be done in preparation of the next Great Act of God. The people will clean areas and build housing, gather food for those who God will raise from the Dead to live in those houses.
People will rush to these sites as they hear that their dead loved ones are about to be resurrected. What a Joyous Time as families are reunited. There will be resurrected ones from long ago, like Noah and Moses and Abel, the first murder victim, will be taught all that has happened. How God’s Son was changed from a powerful Angel at God’s Right Hand to a mere perfect man, the equal of Adam before is disobedient act. How he suffered many indignities and injustices as His Father watched from Heaven. How he did not lash back at those slapping and hitting him. How he tried to reach the religious leaders who could only think about how the people would view them when they found out they had misled them and falsely raised themselves to a position higher than the average man. Even as they were nailing him to a stake he did not lash out, knowing they had been mislead by those religious leaders and their conspiracy.
It may take many years for the Unborn and Young Children to reach an age where they can understand and appreciate the seriousness of what is the best way to live. The same is true of the mentally ill. One of God’s four attributes is Justice, we can be assured He will treat each of us according to our knowledge and understanding. In the end, He wants to enjoy a close personal relationship with each of us for all eternity. By prayer and Bible reading we can begin that relationship today.
The older ones who are resurrected will remember who they were and how they died and all the events of their former life, then they will face the question every one of us will face and answer. Do I appreciate what Jehovah God has done for me? Do I Appreciate the Suffering Jesus endured that I might have Hope? Can I see that God is Teaching me the Best Way of Life? Do I Want to Follow His Way of Life, Learning what He Expects of Me and Applying His direction or Live as I once did with the same outcome, death?
