Holy Spirit and Spirits and Ghosts and Angels Podcast
Are Spirits like Ghosts and Angels For Real?
Spirits or ghosts have been around for thousands of years. God mentions a spirit in Genesis 1:2, ‘Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, and God’s spirit hovered over the water.’
Spiritual beings known as “angels” are mentioned in Genesis 3:24, ‘He (God) banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden He posted the cherubs (angel of the second highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy), and the flame of a flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.’
There are many accounts of people, especially children that have seen angels including myself. One night I was lying in bed and after I had finished praying to God, I rolled over on my side to go to sleep.
Before I could close my eyes, God’s presence appeared to me in the form of a spirit. The spirit was wearing a light blue robe with His arm stretched out, His hand open with His palm facing upward. On His hand was a cloud and on the cloud stood an angel.
The angel turned her head, looked at me and smiled. So, I smiled back and off they went. I said, “Thank you God.” That was awesome that God would do that for me.
There is a well known spirit that is called the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit. One night I was laying in bed and I had just finished reading for the night. The light on my end table was on when out of nowhere, a spirit appeared to me.
He was an impressive spirit, full of flames of fire that were flat and at the one end they came to a point. They were laid out like scales on a fish. He was also in a bodily form. He was only about three feet away from me, hovering above the floor, and looking right at me.
All I could do was lay there and observe this beautiful spirit in amazement. It wasn’t until about three months later after some hard researching that I discovered that this was the Holy Spirit. I had known that the He was in my soul because I can feel him at times.
This is one scripture that I had found that explained it to me, John 14:15-17, ‘If you love me you will keep my commandments. I (Jesus) shall ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever, that Spirit of Truth whom the world can never receive since it neither “sees” nor knows Him; but you know Him, because He is with you, He is in you.’ He’s been with me for at least nine years now.
Both of these scriptures have many witnesses:
Luke 3:21,22, ‘Now when all the people had been baptized and while Jesus after His own baptism was at prayer, heaven opened and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily shape, like a dove.’
Acts 2:1-4, ‘When Pentecost day came around, they had all met in one room (Peter the apostle was one), when suddenly they heard what sounded like a powerful wind from heaven, the noise of which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and something appeared to them that seemed like tongues of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit.”
I know that He is a true, live spirit because He resides in my soul, He comforts me in my sufferings and He teaches me truth and helps me to discern what is truth. He is also our connection to God.
There are many written accounts from others such as, John of the cross, Theresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, Saint Augustine, Saint Ignatius, John Cassian and many others who have spoken of the same thing.
Spirits or ghosts are for real, they can be pure, clean spirits or dark, evil spirits, but there are many people who don’t believe in God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the bible, ghosts or spirits and angels.
They seem to be closed minded and think that people who do believe are brainwashed, need some fantasy to cling to because they don’t have a life, are not living in reality or that the bible is nothing more than a fairy tale.
These people you may never be able to convince because of their closed minded attitude and in many cases are scared of the truth. They may not want to know the truth so they have to keep convincing themselves that it is all a lie by lashing out against those that do believe and/or have witnessed such things. You can go to any religious forum and find many of these people being arrogant and disrespectful.
Open minded people will listen and I tell them that although they may believe what I tell them, they still need to seek the truth for themselves, otherwise they will always be dependent on others for answers which may not always be true.
