The Bible warns us about demons in many verses. James 2:19 says, “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!”
Demons are real. Satan wants you to believe that demons are even your loved ones who have passed and that they are trying to connect with you. Why would Satan want this? Because it is something that will keep your mind focused on something besides God. Who would not be distracted if they believed that they could actually communicate with their deceased loved ones. I will explain why I believe this.
Luke 23:42-43 says, “Then he (one of the criminals on the side of Jesus) said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. 43 Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”
This verse proves that when we, whom are Christians, die, we will go straight to Heaven! We will not linger around on the earth. I am also going to explain why I know for sure that there is truth to what the Bible says. There are demons on earth that Satan uses to try and destroy us and keep our minds on everything, but Christ!
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world” (1 Peter 5:8-9).
Now, I will discuss why I am so sure that demons exist. A while back, I was with some friends at a sleepover. We were messing around with something that we should not have been messing with; a ouija board. We were asking questions about life. One friend asked, “When will I die?” The demon answered. I didn’t want to know. When I was using it, we asked, “How many of you are in here?” They answered and let me just say, there were a lot of them! It is real. That is proof. I would never advise someone to use a board, or anything to communicate with Satan’s demons. They want you to be amazed by them. It is a trick. We were using it in my friend’s house and then, out in an old barn. This was also during the night, but we had lights. I can promise you that when I put my hand on the thing that moves to each letter (whatever that is called), it did move and no, we were not pushing it. You could see the fright in each others’ eyes.
More proof: Not too long ago I was sitting in my living room and my stereo randomly turned on. My response was to turn the thing off, because only I should have been turning the thing on, right? Yep. I forgot about it and went on with my life. I did not tell a single person, because to be honest, it did creep me out. Talking about it would have only escalated the fear. A couple months later, my son’s nasal mist spray container moved around on the table right in front of me. Yes, at first, I did believe that it could quite possibly be my prankster brother playing tricks on me. Remember, Christ told the criminal on the cross, right after he became a Christian, that he would be with Him in paradise that same day! What does this tell us? It tells us that our loved ones are in Heaven, or possibly Hell and not on earth.
Verses in the Bible mention that demons are on earth. They are everywhere around us, tempting us. That is exactly how I know that I have proof that they exist. The good news is, Christians can not be touched or harmed by these evil beings. This verse is the perfect verse to cast out any fears that a Christian may have about the subject:
1 John 5:18 “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the Devil one does not touch him.”
The reason that I decided to write a post about this is, I had this conversation with a friend the other night when I finally mentioned the things that had been happening around me. He reminded me of some verses and truth and I felt the need to share.
