HELL, An Eternity Without the Acceptance of Jesus

Written by Kevin Riordan

A few years ago while doing street ministry I encountered a group of kids skateboarding. They we between the ages 16-20. I began to talk to them about Jesus and they were making fun of me.

I told them that this was the most important information you will ever hear. I explained that the conversation we were having would have incredible significance one million years from now. That if they never put their faith in Christ, they would go to hell.

I then began to describe what it would look like. I shared with them that hell would not be a big party, where all their friends would be, but it would be unspeakable torment. I painted a pretty clear picture from scripture. I shared about the blackness of hell, the foul smells of hell, the dryness of hell, demonic torment in hell, the ear piercing wailing in hell, how their is no sleep in hell, and the lake of fire. I explained how you will have an eternal body that will never die, that completely feels all of the pain and torment. I explained how in hell you have your memory. For all eternity you’ll remember every time someone came to you with the message of the gospel, appealing to you to follow Jesus. For all eternity you’ll remember laughing and scoffing, and rejecting the gift of salvation that Jesus died to give you. Lastly I talked about the hopelessness in hell as you are faced with the fact that you will be in that place for ALL eternity.

Most of the kids continued to laugh and joke, but there was one kid who was locked on everything I was saying. When I finished he pulled me to the side and asked if he could talk to me.

He began to tell me that he overdosed on heroin and died a year earlier. He told me that he was in the place I had described. He remembered coming out of his body and falling down a tunnel and landing in a pit. He said “I saw everything you described.” He told me about the the darkness, the smells, the horrible shrieks of pain and agony. He described the lake of fire that people were being thrown into, and the grotesque demons he saw. He told me that he looked up and saw a pinprick of light. He was suddenly sucked up to that light and back in his body. He told me that he didn’t know where he was, but that he was terrified of going back. I reiterated the gospel and he Committed his life to Jesus.

Hell is real. It is not only for bad people. There is a misconception that if you are a “good person”, a generous person, you’ll go to heaven. The reality is that hell is full of people who were really good by the worlds standards, but sadly rejected Jesus. Heaven has plenty of people who were not so good by the worlds standard, but placed their faith in Jesus, received forgiveness and were born again.

If you reject Jesus, you reject His heaven. The bottom line is this, one way or another, payment for sin will be made. Either a person will receive Christ and His blood shed on the cross will pay for your sin, or you will reject Christ, and pay for your own sin in hell.

It is not Gods will that anyone go to Hell. God did everything He could possibly do to keep you out of that place by sending His son Jesus to die for your sin. Give your life to Christ. Experience healing and freedom in this life, and peace, joy and happiness for all eternity!!

The Exorcism of Laura Constantino, Sister of the late Famous Ghost Hunter, Mark Constantino

~Article written by Dana Emanuel~

Exorcism/deliverance after involvement in Paranormal investigation/s, which led to Demonic Harassment And Deaths.



On July 14th 2018, After seeing my video “The Great Paranormal Deceptions”, on my good friend, Laura Maxwell’s YouTube channel, Laura Constantino contacted Laura and myself regarding demonic activity and torment she was having in her home.

Her brother, Mark Constantino, of the famous TV show, “Ghost Adventures”, died in tragic circumstances, (double murder-suicide) on 9/22/15 at the age of 53.

Laura’s brother, Mark Constantino, and wife, Debbie Constantino, of the famous TV show, “Ghost Adventures”, died in tragic circumstances, (double murder-suicide) on 9/22/15.

Mark and Debbie Constantino, of “Ghost Adventures” TV Show, Featured on the Travel Channel.

How Laura’s personal nightmare began

On the show, Laura C. explains that after the tragic deaths of her brother, Mark Constantino, and his wife, Debbie, Laura was curious and wanted answers. How could someone, like her brother, that she knew so well.. do what he did? This was not a case of someone she hardly knew, but this was her brother that she grew up with.

As Laura explains in the interview, they grew up together, going to catholic school, and Mark was even an alter boy. This was not someone that lived in a home with no love. Her and Mark grew up in a loving home with very loving parents. The conversations between them never ended without saying, ” I love you”.

Laura and her siblings (Laura on front left, Gary on top left, and Mark on top right)

As Laura mentions on the show, she had many unanswered questions. Could this “hobby” of Marks’, (hence his involvement in the occult/paranormal) attributed to the tragedy? Could it have been that demonic spirits led him to do what he did? And what was it about the “paranormal” that Mark was so passionate about? Could the tragedy have actually been linked to this “hobby” of his?

Soon after Marks death, Laura decided to go to Virginia city, where Mark lived, to hopefully, try to get some answers. Her, along with her brother Gary Constantino, and her daughter Samantha LeoGrande all went together, despite warnings from her Priest, that “nothing good could come out of it”.

Laura, Samantha, and Gary

After they arrived, they went to a local “ghost hunt” to find out what it was about the “paranormal field” that Mark was so attracted to, and to also see if the investigators could possibly “contact Mark” during their ghost hunt, as she had seen Mark do so many times on Tv.

During the “ghost hunt”, it was brought to their attention that one of the investigators captured an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) of what sounded like her brother Mark’s voice. They were all amazed, and also “convinced” that they did indeed make contact with Mark.

In the interview, Laura and her brother Gary explain that after arriving back home, almost immediately, Laura’s daughter, Samantha and Laura, started having paranormal activity in their home. The activity that Samantha was experiencing slowly progressed to severe torment. The incidents became more severe, and even physical. There were a few times, in which the demonic spirits literally almost killed her.. (house fire, auto accident, etc) After months of this torment, and failed attempts of house clearings by the family priest, Laura’s precious daughter, Samantha passed away unexpectedly.. when only an hour before, her eyes appeared to be black in color, and she “didn’t seem like herself”. Laura felt certain that Sam’s life was taken by something not of this world.. something evil, something supernatural.

Soon after Sam passed, the paranormal activity that Laura was witnessing, soon escalated. As Laura explains in our interview, things happened such as sightings of “shadow figures”, and there were even incidents of physical attacks. Laura also suffered from incidents of sleep paralysis, where she would wake up on the floor, finding that she had been dragged out of her bed. Once, She even walked into a room and found her hanging cross inverted upside down. Besides all the demonic torment she was going through, she was also grieving for her daughter Sam, to the point of major depression, at times, even considering suicide.

Out of pure frustration and desperation, she finally put her home on the market for sale. She couldn’t take anymore. She was seeking help through the Catholic Church, as this was all she knew. But why weren’t they able to help her? Why wasn’t things getting better after the priest would come and pray for her? The torment only escalated.

One day, she was searching on YouTube for answers, as she had done so many times before, She came across a video, called “The Great Paranormal Deceptions”, by Dana Emanuel, an ex-paranormal investigator, now a deliverance minister. On the video, Dana talks about the dangers involved in the paranormal field and the occult. During the video, Dana coincidentally mentions Laura’s brother, Mark, and the tragedy that led to his and his wife, Debbies’ deaths.

After watching Dana’s video, on Laura Maxwell’s YouTube channel, Laura C. contacted Dana and Laura Maxwell. . (Laura Maxwell is an ex-spiritualist, now Deliverance minister , Radio host, and owner of Our Spiritual Quest International Ministry.)

After Laura C. contacted Dana, they spoke several times over the phone, sometimes the conversations lasting 3+ hours, as she and Dana discussed the torment that her and her family were going through. Having gone through a very similar situation, Dana explained to her how her prior involvement in the occult (paranormal investigations) eventually led to the demonic torment that Dana and her family went through, and she explained the steps necessary to rid herself and her home of the demonic spirits.

About the hosts of Spirituality Today, Laura and Dana Investigate

About Dana Emanuel, Radio Show Co-host:

Dana, being an Ex-Ghost hunter herself, was very familiar with Laura’s brother Mark Constantino, and his wife, Debbie. As she was always a big fan and follower of theirs while she was in the paranormal field. Dana used to be the founder of “Dead Time Paranormal Investigations”, until she finally left the field in 2011.

Dana left the paranormal field and got deliverance (aka exorcism) after her and her family suffered severe demonic attacks, and she learned that the “spirits” she was communicating and interacting with during these “ghost hunts”, were actually demonic spirits, masquerading as the departed spirits of our dead loved ones, (familiar spirits) just as the Bible tells us. After leaving the field, Dana began a deliverance ministry, warning and teaching others about the occult, and deceptions regarding the paranormal field.

About Laura Maxwell, Radio Show Host

Laura Maxwell, also has a very similar testimony, leaving spiritualism and the occult, but only after losing her dear mum tragically to suicide, after suffering severe torment by demonic spirits.

Laura Maxwell’s mum, Rita Peffer

Laura Maxwell leads a very successful ministry, Our Spiritual Quest, warning people of the dangers and deceptions surrounding spiritualism, the new age, and the occult and she shares the truth of Jesus, on TV and radio interviews. Laura Maxwell was also the Radio Host for “The Supernatural, on Eternal Radio”.

Laura Maxwell’s ministry website is:


Laura Maxwell and Dana teamed up and advised Laura C. of what needed to be done for her to get deliverance and to stop the demonic activity in her home. They counseled with her for several months.

In the meanwhile, we did a radio show interview with Laura Constantino and her brother, Gary Constantino, on August 25th, so Laura C. and Gary could warn others about the dangers involved in the paranormal. But after that show was recorded, Dana and Laura M. discussed getting Laura C. deliverance as she truly needed it. At this point, she had listed her home for sale, as the demonic harassment had become severe.

Laura Maxwell contacted a close friend of hers, Pastor Michael Cummins, Deliverance minister, to see if he could assist/lead in Laura C.’s deliverance, in which, he graciously volunteered.

Laura Maxwell and her good friend, Michael Cummins, of Revelation TV.

On 9/6/18, Laura Maxwell, and Dana assisted Michael Cummins as he led Laura’s deliverance, over Skype, which was very powerful and ended successfully, and we give God ALL THE GLORY!!!

After her powerful deliverance, we kept contact, and witnessed a miraculous transformation in her life, and besides all of the demonic activity ending, she is no longer depressed, or has thoughts of suicide! Even some people that she knew in her daily life told her that “something about her had changed” for the better. One lady told Laura that she seemed so happy and that the change was noticeable! The lady had no idea about her deliverance or the demonic torment she had been secretly going through.

The day after Laura C.’s deliverance, she messaged Laura and Dana, and told them, “when I woke up this morning, although it is cloudy outside, it seems as the day is bright, with birds singing, and it feels so good, and I feel FREE”!!

We did a second Radio interview with Laura C., to update everyone with her testimony, following her powerful deliverance, in which is included in the video! It’s a MUST HEAR!! (Part 2@ 1hr 59 minute mark)

SO, HEAR IT HERE!! >>>>>

Laura LeoGrande writes:

I am free! Thank you Jesus. Three years I suffered and was tormented every day. I thought I was going crazy. Then I came across your video Dana, and I know God had me watch it. Divine intervention is what happened to me. Thank you Laura Maxwell, Michael Commons, And you Dana Emanuel for giving me my life back! My long-distance sisters, I love you both so much! Gary and I thank you for having us on your show to tell our story…..

Dana Emanuel writes:

This/these interviews were special to me for personal reasons, and Laura C. has been such a wonderful friend. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her transform spiritually where she has found profound freedom, like she has never experienced before! This case was personal also for my cohost and good friend, Laura Maxwell, as she too shares a very similar testimony! We pray that others will realize the truth behind paranormal research/the occult and how it affects people spiritually. We need to only seek the truth in Gods word and submit ourselves to it. Freedom is only found through Jesus… in Jesus alone!! This case was difficult as the enemy came against it in many ways. I was honored and humbled to have been able to assist and take part of her miraculous deliverance with Micheal Cummins and Laura Maxwell. It was very powerful and brought her much freedom! People that weren’t even aware of her situation and deliverance communicated to her of the noticeable differences and positive changes in her, which was the result of her deliverance, praise God!! We give GOD all the glory!!!!

Laura Maxwell writes:

Please share & pray that countless ghost hunters, mediums, and psychics, including fans of the world famous “Ghost Adventures TV show”, (that Mark & Debby both starred on with Zac Bagans and Team), see this interview with Mark’s brother and sister! Many thanks! God bless you!

Not long ago a tragedy rocked the paranormal community with the passing of the Constantino’s. It obviously affected the family the most, and Mark’s sister and brother were interviewed by Laura Maxwelland Dana Emanuel.. It was one of the most touching interviews I have ever heard…and later Mark’s sister was spiritually freed in marvelous way.

~Article written by Dana Emanuel~


“We recognize and respect the diversity of opinions regarding involvement with the paranormal and it’s possible role in the Murder-suicide tragedy that occurred with Mark and Debbie Constatino, and her roommate, James Anderson. Neither the public nor the family ever believed that Mark was mentally or morally capable of carrying out his actions.

While there have been comments made by family members that were made public regarding the incident, we really cannot comment on them, as we don’t know all the facts surrounding them nor do we know all the private facts regarding Mark and Debbie on the day of or leading to the tragedy. Speculation and here say would not offer any resolution nor will it bring peace to any of the families involved.

We too want nothing more than the truth of what happened, and we do not wish to avoid Mark’s blameworthiness of his actions. As deliverance ministers, given what we know about spiritual warfare and the demonic, we do feel that the demonic played part in the horrific tragedy that took place on Sept. 22, 2015, claiming all 3 lives. Not only were their lives ended, but the lives of all 3 families were affected tremendously. And we do not wish to add to their loss and suffering by initiating or allowing hurtful statements in this forum. This is to respect and protect all families involved.

The intent of this channel and blog is to help educate others of the dangers involved in the occult and to share testimonies of those that have been through similar situations and have found the truth about these deceptive spirits, and have since turned to Jesus Christ and have found true freedom. We hope and pray that no other family ever has to go through what these 3 families have endured. We want the victims’ families to know our thoughts and prayers are with them. As bad as we, the public may feel about what happened, it pales in comparison to what the victims’ families will have to face and endure in the coming years.“

Christian Witches

Christian witchcraft has become a new topic of debate within the Christian/secular community. The reason for this is that there are many people that claim to be Christian, while at the same time, they hold onto their Witchcraft beliefs.

How is this, one might ask? This has made myself and others curious, curious enough to examine witchcraft and what it truly means to be a witch, and if it is truly compatible with Christianity.

Please see my video on this subject here:


I thought it would be wise to first examine the question, What is a witch?

When I went to Wikipedia, it said:

“A woman thought to have magic powers, especially evil ones, popularly depicted as wearing a black cloak and pointed hat and flying on a broomstick.”

Although this description seems to fit what society visualizes when the word witch is mentioned, one must know it is much more complex than that.

Witch – One who practices witchcraft, usually one of the pagan / or Witchcraft religion.

When researching this subject, and asking this question, I was surprised at the variety of different answers I got. There are several different types of witches, and “groups (aka covens)”. Please note, all these different groups/covens have different traditions/beliefs.

Some topics that not all witches/covens agree on are:

The afterlife

Reincarnation and karma

Heaven and hell

God/s and goddesses


Holy Bible


What is witchcraft?

According to the pagans path website:

It’s a form of spirituality and a religion, like many other faiths. In the most simplistic definitions, Witchcraft can be described as:

A nature based religion that believes in the balance of mind/body/spirit within the divine multiverse. It is a religion and way of life, honoring all things seen and unseen within that divine multiverse. Practitioners strive to live in harmony and balance within nature, believing we (human and nature) are all interconnected and parts of the greater divine force. Some call this force, The GreatSpirits, The Divine, God/Goddess, All That Is and so on. It’s really up to the individual and what label best fits their view of the Divine Spirit.

*This type of belief is new age. It suggests religious relativism.

What does the Bible say about witchcraft or “witches”?

Anytime we want to know if something is accepted by God, we must look at what His Word says. For the Christian, God’s Word is our final authority in all matters of our faith and life.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJVS

[10] There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, [11] Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

2 Kings 21:6 KJVS

[6] And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord , to provoke him to anger.

What is a Christian?

First we should look at the first time the word “Christian” is used in the Bible:

Acts 11:26 KJV

[26] And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Christians are those that accept and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. They assemble together in the church and study what the disciples taught, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are Christ followers.

What is the gospel?

Christians must believe the gospel. The gospel is essential to the Christian Faith.

In Christianity, the gospel, or the Good News, is the news of the coming of the Kingdom of God. Paul’s gospel is of Jesus’s death on the cross and resurrection to restore people’s relationship with God. It also includes the descent of the Holy Spirit upon believers and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

How do you get to have eternal life?

John 3:16 KJVS

[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 17:3 KJV

[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

What does it mean to be saved?

Acts 16:30-31 KJVS

[30] And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? [31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Note: Anyone can “say” they believe in Jesus.. but that doesn’t mean they believe in the one and only true Jesus.. Jesus our savior! Many false religions claim to believe in Jesus, but in reality, they believe in a false Jesus. For example; Jehovia witnesses, Mormons, and 7th day advents. Some new age religions believe that Jesus is/was a descended master.

Jesus as a “Descended master”

Can you be both? Be of light AND of darkness?

1 John 1:5-7 KJVS

[5] This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. [6] If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: [7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 Corinthians 10:20-21 KJVS

[20] But I say , that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. [21] Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

Saying something, verses true “confession”..

You can say anything, but it doesn’t mean you believe it with your whole heart. To confess something, means to declare it as absolute truth and knowing it as fact.

Verse that says “Lord Lord”

Their hearts are far from me:

Matthew 15:7-9 KJVS

[7] Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, [8] This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. [9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men

*To all Christian Witches~ Do the things of the world, including the practice of witchcraft, come before God and what He has to say about it? A true Christian will “want” to please God, and will not want to do things that He abhors.

Christianity and Wicca-

Not only do they not agree, but they are blantly opposed, one to the other!

Do witches believe the Bible? Are they true believers? If they claim to believe, but yet they only accept “parts of the Bible, and make up an image of a Jesus that is different that the Jesus of the Bible, then they are created a graven image of Jesus Christ. It is a different Jesus.

Witches believe that humans are not superior to nature. They believe in nature admiration. The Bible says that amount people that rebel against the Bible are those that worship nature and the created things, instead of the creator. In which, would be in rebellion against God‘s word.

Witches believe in using divination, sorcery, and magic, while the Bible condemns it.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJVS

[10] There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, [11] Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Witches also believe in spirits, spirit guides, and ghosts.

The Bible does not describe or support the notion of earthbound spirits/ghosts. The paranormal phenomena of ghosts, spirit guides, and spirits, are described in the Bible as familiar spirits. These are demons. Satan and his fallen angels masquerade as ghosts.

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

1 Samuel 28:8-14 KJV

[8] And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. [9] And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? [10] And Saul sware to her by the Lord , saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. [11] Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12] And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13] And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself.

(This was a familiar spirit that was masquerading as Samuel.) *Please see my other article, called “What is a Familiar Spirit” @ https://www.spiritualrealities.org

Witches believe in energy and psychic abilities.

They believe that we are all energy beings and connected through energy. That through this energy we can connect to each other and all things with our psychic senses and that these senses are part of all nature and that all people have these senses within them.

This is not found in scripture, and this is also a new age belief.

What witches believe about God? (VERY IMPORTANT and central to the Christian Faith)

Witches believe/revere in both gods and the goddess.

(Bible describes these as False Gods)

The Bible explicitly describes God as a male figure. All throughout scripture, God is referred to as “He”, or “Father”.

What do Christians believe about God?

The Bible says there is only one true God. The God is Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The same God described in the Holy Bible.

Exodus 20:2-5 KJVS

[2] I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [3] Thou shalt have no other gods before me. [4] Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: [5] Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

1 Timothy 2:5 KJVS

[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Isaiah 44:6 KJVS

[6] Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isaiah 44:8-11 KJVS

[8] Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it ? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any . [9] They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. [10] Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing? [11] Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

What do Christians believe about death and the afterlife?

As seen in Luke 16, the rich man that died and went to hell immediately. And a beggar named Lazarus that was immediately carried to heaven (Abraham’s bosom) by angels.

Luke 16:22-31 KJV

[22] And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; [23] And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. [24] And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. [25] But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. [26] And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. [27] Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: [28] For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. [29] Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. [30] And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. [31] And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Do witches believe in hell?

No. They believe in a final eternal home called Summerlands. In which all people will live there, the good and the wicked.

Christians believe that when a person dies, their spirit immediately goes to either heaven (for the righteous) or hell (for the unrighteousness).

Witches believe in reincarnation

The Bible does not teach reincarnation.

Hebrews 9:27 KJV

[27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The Bible teaches that Jesus is our blessed hope

Our hope and promise is that we will be ressurected to eternal life with Jesus after we die.

Acts 24:14-15 KJVS

[14] But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: [15] And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

God’s Holy Word:

A person that believes that they can be both a Christian and a witch, do not believe what Gods word says. They reject scripture.

The God of the Bible says that scripture is essential! The Bible tells us to test everything with scripture!

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

[15] Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Acts 17:11 KJV

[11] These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Christianity has not changed. The Bible also tells us to not lean on our own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV

[5] Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [6] In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. [7] Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil.

People say, well, the Bible means different things to different people… the Bible says that scripture is not for private interpretation.

2 Peter 1:20 KJV

[20] Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

Everyone might not understand everything in the Bible, we are all learning.. but if you truly pray and ask God for understanding of certain issues, he will show it to us. Then there are people who cannot know the things of the spirit because they are not of the spirit.

People spend millions of dollars on books, counselors, classes, etc to find answers to life’s questions, when in reality, it’s all in God’s word!

All of this doubt that we see today, in Gods word, and coming against Gods word, is of the devil.

The devil has come against Gods word since the beginning.. when he asked Eve in the garden, “hath God really said”?

And just like when Eve gave place to the devil, by heeding to this doubt, and rebelled against God.. it led to the fall of man. and death. Which is what will happen to us if we die in disbelief. The enemy is not our friend.. he aims to kill us, and to take us to hell with him.

If you are a true Christian, this verse will be ESSENTIAL to your faith. Do you believe the following verse?

Acts 4:12 KJVS

[12] Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

And that name is Jesus Christ!!

If the answer is “no”, then you are not a true Christ follower/Christian.

Sozo Inner Healing, In Light of Scripture

Video Link Here>>>>

SOZO In Light of Scripture

It is with my truest intentions,  and with the utmost humility and love for others, that I explain in this blog and video, why “Sozo Inner Healing” is not of God. It is not biblical, and it actually leads people deeper into bondage than they already were into, before they sought help.

One might ask, “How do you know”?

I personally went to this inner healing counseling with someone close to me. We both participated in it. Did it bring freedom? No.

This technique called “Sozo Inner Healing” Emphasizes heavily on Experience, and De-Emphasizes on Doctrine. This is an extra biblical teaching, which is not found in the Bible, anywhere. The bible is our final authority and rule on all things, faith and practice. .

Some people claim that this concept of “creative guided visualization techniques” have brought them freedom.

This technique includes guided visualized “visits of Jesus” in your mind, where the counselor “acts as the mediator.” But scripture tells us, There is only one mediator between us and God, that is Jesus.

1 Timothy 2:5 KJV

[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

My personal experience with SOZO:

During these sessions, the counselor encouraged me to imagine in my mind, the most traumatic event that took place in my life, and for me to imagine I was there again.. and he even asked me to look around in the room I was in, and he asked, “Is it the same room that this traumatic event took place in? And then, he told me to imagine the event that took place years ago. As I brought these thoughts to my mind, it was very emotional for me. I began to sob. I began to become angry at the person that did these horrific things to my family and It brought back memories that I never wanted to visit again. (Why would I?) After I became very emotional, the counselor then asked me to imagine Jesus, coming to the scene. The counselor even asked me to imagine what Jesus was wearing.. and kept asking me things like, “do you see Him yet?” , and “”what is he wearing, what color is his clothes”? He wanted me to focus on details so I could confirm to him that I was actually “seeing Jesus”. He kept encouraging me to try hard to imagine him there. During this time, he was “praying”to Jesus, asking Him to appear to me in my mind, so that he could “heal me”. Finally, Jesus showed up, in a white robe, and I imagined Him hugging me and my kids and telling us that “everything will be ok.” The session seemed somewhat emotional, and draining. It brought back old memories that I truly thought I had already healed from. If I was already healed from the past traumatic events, why would I be so disturbed by it all, once again? I began to question to myself… why have I never seen this kind of “healings” in the Bible?

The second session came. I was feeling a little uneasy about it. With my history of coming out of the occult and getting saved and born again, I didn’t want to fall into another trap of deception of the enemy. This just didn’t seem biblical. Why have I never heard of Jesus or the disciples ever healing people this way?

On this second session, I expressed to the counselor my concern regarding these inner healing sessions, and asked him lwhy I’ve not read about these types of healings in scripture. He acted slightly offended, and then brought up a few bible verses, which were less than convincing to me. But none the less, he acted as if I was just being too paranoid and that it was not surprising that I was acting that way because after all, I had been deceived once before in the occult, and later got out of it and had to get deliverance, and once again he assured me that these sessions were in fact biblical. I brought my grandson with me on this visit. He was probably around 5 yrs old at the time. I talked to the counselor and once again, he began to pray for me. Except this time, while he was praying, I started praying low, where he couldn’t hear me. I prayed to God, “Father, if this is not of you, I ask that you reveal it to me and show me. I ask that you protect me from any harm or from any evil spirits that may come through as a result, in Jesus name.”

Then as the session went along, as the counselor was trying to bring Jesus on the scene, I kept getting distracted because my grandson was making strange noises and talking to himself. I then noticed he was slithering around on the floor like a snake. Some people would have perhaps thought he was playing, but deep down I felt something could be going wrong. I stopped the counselor and asked him if he noticed what my grandson was doing, and he just simply said “yes”. I thought that maybe he would stop and ask to pray for my grandson, but he didn’t. So I stopped the session and told the counselor that I felt like something was wrong and I wanted to leave. I just knew in my heart that this was not of God and that it was truly opening up a door to the demonic and that it also affected my grandson. I felt that he was “manifesting” an evil spirit, that came trough during this session.

That same evening I prayed to God and renounced my involvement in these sessions and I asked my brother (which is a minister) to pray for us. I also had a local pastor pray for us, and we received deliverance.

There is nothing in scripture that suggests that we need to visualize “past traumatic events” that took place in our lives, in order to get healed of the emotional traumas once suffered.  People become deceived when they enter into a spiritual realm that they have no business delving into.

The visualized “Jesus” in this technique is the same as the spirit guides that the new Agers and spiritualists meditate on and communicate with. Just because something claims to have the name of Jesus does not mean it is indeed Jesus. The Bible warns about false Christs that will come, and false signs and wonders in the last days.

It’s very interesting to know that the Bible warns us that this “false Christ” that comes will masquerade as something good. And that if possible, it will deceive even “the elect”. What better way to do this than to minick Jesus Himself. You can’t deceive a Christian with something that “appears” as something evil. The best way for Satan to deceive a Christian would be to appear as something good.

This is how Satan deceived Eve. The fruit “looked good”.

2 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. [15] Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 KJV

[1] Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; [2] Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

In the book of revelations it talks about how the antichrist and false prophets will deceive many.. it will be false signs and wonders.. and the Bible also talks about how if possible, even the elect would be deceived. How would this be? A FALSE JESUS WITH FALSE SIGNS AND WONDERS!

Matthew 24:23-26 KJV

[23] Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. [24] For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. [25] Behold, I have told you before. [26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Visual techniques are also designed for people to discover their “inner power” by giving them control of their own lives and destiny.

These demonic spirits come in by way of invitation, through these “visualization/meditation techniques”.

Demonic spirits (Familiar spirits) pose as angels, spirit guides, aliens, descended masters, earthbound spirits (including Mary, and apostles), animal spirits, big foot (and other mythical creatures), and yes, even Jesus. The “jesus” that is visualized during these inner healing sessions, is no different than what spiritualists call spirit guides.

Also, when we communicate with these familiar spirits, (for example, Mary and the saints) it is essentially the same thing as necromancy. Because as we know, the Bible says that when we die we are no longer here and it is impossible for the dead to speak to us. (Luke 16, 2 Corinthians 5:8, Hebrews 9:27) and therefore, any attempts of communicating with the dead is actually communication with familiar spirits.

Necromancy is a claimed form of magic involving communication with the deceased either by summoning their spirit as an apparition, or raising them bodily, for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge. The term may sometimes be used in a more general sense to refer to black magic or witchcraft.

Common hinderance to true freedom:


When we suffer from past hurts (for example, sexual abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse, Rejection) and we have unforgiveness, it can cause depression, anger, drug abuse, alcoholism, addictive behaviors, etc.

Have we forgiven those that hurt us? How do we forgive, biblically? Jesus said seventy times seven.. and in the Bible, Jesus gives us an example of a daily prayer.. in which, he tells us we should ask God to forgive those that trespass against us, everyday, and that we need to forgive them “from the heart”. ( not only by word) The Bible tells us that if we do not forgive others, we can not be forgiven by God. It also says that if we don’t forgive others, God will “deliver us to the tormentors”, until we forgive others.

Matthew 18:33-35 KJV

[33] Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? [34] And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. [35] So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

With the sozo healing techniques, the counselor will guide the client through a mental visualization of the client “going back to the time and place of a traumatic event” that took place earlier in their life, in which, the counselor feels is the source of the current problems client is having. This technique causes the person to have a flood of negative emotions, and feelings of hurt, in which is only a replay of the trauma they suffered before, except, during the visualization sessions, the counselor will now bring “Jesus” on the scene, (False Jesus) which will embrace the client and “heal them”. This technique only makes the person relive the trauma all over again, feel traumatized all over again, making them feel the flood of negative emotions that they felt when they actually went through the traumatic event earlier in their life. These sessions usually make the client feel emotionally exhausted and in reality, they become demonically oppressed even further, Demon possessed.

Philippians 3:13 KJVS

[13] Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do , forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before [14] I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

This sozo healing techniques is merely “masking” an old new age technique, except in this case, the spirit “guide”, is in the form of Jesus. Jesus does not operate this way. This is a false Jesus!

According to several online sources, Bill Johnson’s “Bethel Ministry” is one place where this practice originated from. They have also adapted to other new age techniques, such as:

False prophecy


“Fire tunnels”

Grave soaking trips

Visualization, contemplative prayer, and meditation practices

Chanting, soaking, and spiritual drunkenness

“Toking” the Holy Ghost to get “high on Jesus”

They believe that “a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with a doctrine.”

Test The Spirits

We need to always test things with scripture. We are commanded to in the Bible.

1 John 4:1-6 KJVS

[1] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. [2] Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: [3] And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. [4] Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. [5] They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. [6] We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Bad Fruit

The evil root of these techniques are demonic new age philosophy .. A bad tree cannot produce good fruit!

Matthew 7:15-23 KJVS

[15] Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. [18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. [19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. [20] Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. [21] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. [22] Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The “fruit” of any professed prophet would be their “teaching”. This would also apply with any pastor, teacher, or any other person who stands in the name of God.

This teaching is not based on biblical teachings. It is based on immediate experience, as the long term effect would result in further bondage and demonic oppression/or worse, possession.

How to get True Freedom

2 Corinthians 5:17-19 KJV
[17] Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. [18] And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, thatGod was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

We do not need to perform any ritualistic techniques or guided imagery sessions, for the freedom Chris gives us!

One major problem with this “way of salvation” and deliverance, is the fact that it teaches that freedom comes from these visualization techniques, but do not hold to the true teaching in scriptures of salvation, and deliverance. There is no mention of repentance of sin in these techniques either. Many times, it is Sin that brings on our bondage! There is no possible way to get freedom if we do not repent of our sins, break generational curses, forgive others, submit to Jesus, and read God’s Word.

•Believe on Jesus

•We must submit to God fully,

*turning away from sin

*Forgive others

•Get deliverance

•Read His word everyday, as this is how the Holy Spirit transforms and renews our mind.

Residual Haunts, by Mark Hunnemann

A dear friend of mine, Mark Hunnemann, recorded a series on “Challenging The Popular Theory Of Residual Energy Haunts”, which offers a thorough analysis of this belief, which is mostly unexamined, and a speculative theory in the paranormal community. This is the very first analysis I have ever seen of anyone even trying to debunk it. He did an excellent job proving it to be unscientific and unbiblical. For anyone that wants the truth regarding this subject, I HIGHLY recommend they watch his series of videos on this topic!!


God Bless!

The Devils Toybox, Children and the Occult


Children and the Occult

What is the occult?

If you were to ask a large group of people this question, you would get many different answers. One thing that may come to mind would be something like a scene from a movie, perhaps a couple of people in black attire, with hoodies on, standing inside a circle that is drawn on the floor, with a pentagram in the center of it, with candles lit, while they chant, and  cast spells. This is what the media usually portrays as the occult or witchcraft.

But on the other hand, if you look at what the Bible says regarding the occult, you will find a much broader description.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV

(10) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (11) or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord and because of these abominations, the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

It is very hard to direct your children in the ways of the Lord in today’s society because occult practices has become acceptable, while it “appears” to be harmless, as it has become the “normal way of life”.

Witchcraft and the occult have become the norm, and a way of life. Children learn occult practices from a very early age, from the media, books, the influence of their friends, and sadly, even thier parents and other family members teach them.

Fairy Tales and Cartoons

Fairy tales and bedtime stories with witchcraft and the occult has been a great influence on children as well. Here are some examples from many common fairy tales that you would find on any book shelf in daycares, schools, or even our homes. In the illustrations below, Please take notice of how the occult and witchcraft is a big part of the story.

Snow White. Witch casts a spell on an apple eaten by Snow White. The spell is broken by a kiss from the prince. They live happily ever after.

Cinderella. Witch casts a spell so Cindrella can go to the ball. The spell ends at midnight when Cinderella loses her dress and carriage. In the end all is well for Cinderalla.

Wizard of Oz. Dorothy and her dog get transported to the land of Oz. A wizard is the leader and he is the man Dorothy and friends must see for help. Dorothy gets help from the “good” witch and battles the evil witches. The witches cast their spells in the story.

Do you see a trend in many of the old time fairy tales and stories? They have bad witches casting evil spells and so-called good witches casting “good” spells. Many, if not all, fairy tales have a happy ending where the good witch wins, so the child will be given a pleasant introduction to the world of the occult and witchcraft.

Occultic Games Children Play

I remember when I was a kid, playing with a “magic 8 ball”, asking questions, such as, “Will I get married when I’m older?”, or “Will I get a new pet this year?” It seems very innocent and harmless, and you may be asking yourself, well.. what’s the harm in that?

The problem with these games, is that although they appear to be harmless and entertaining, they are forms of divination and witchcraft. What is even more disturbing about them, is the very fact that they are designed to have more appeal to them due to thier innocent appearance. More people would be drawn to them., simply because they “think” they are okay, and in fact they are entertaining.

Games such as the “Magic 8 ball”, or “paper fortune tellers” may not appear to be associated with the occult, but in reality, they are no more innocent than using a deck of tarot cards. With the heavy influence and acceptance of the occult in society today, it is no surprise that games such as “Ouija” and “Children’s tarot cards” are not only accepted by society, but they are “hot selling items”, sold in most local toy stores.

Voodoo Dolls

I have even come across “Voodoo dolls”, made for children. It is interesting to know that Voodoo” means “spirit of God.” Believers of voodoo believe in one ever-present God, and they speak with the spirits, called the “Loa”. They believe that the Loa are our dead ancestors and the messengers of their God. They believe that the Loa influence the daily affairs of the living, especially when it comes to love, money, family, happiness, justice or revenge. Voodoo dolls are vital tools used in rituals by those in the voodoo religion. This religion is a false religion, which actually uses witchcraft, and the powers of darkness.

This religion is evil and unbiblical and in no way does it have a place in the life of a Christian, or in a child’s toy box for that matter.


With the explosion of the high interest in ghosts in society today, it is no surprise that children are becoming involved in ghost hunting and “paranormal research”. This practice involves necromancy, divination, and consulting with familiar spirits. All of which, are forbidden in scripture.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV

(10) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (11) or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord and because of these abominations, the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

The Indoctrination of our children to such practices from such an early age is very alarming to a true believer, but this tactic is not new by any means. There is nothing new under the sun. God acknowledged that children were practicing magic and witchcraft in Isaiah 47:12, and He did not approve of it. It is alive and well around the world and in our nation today, just as it was when the book of Isaiah was written.

Isaiah 47:12 KJV
[12] Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

What’s the harm?

Demonic spirits have one goal. And that goal is to destroy us. (To steal, kill, and destroy)

God has a hedge of protection around every person, even sinners and unbelievers. Demons can not penetrate this hedge of protection, unless we willfully do wrong. Sin has inescapable consequences of ruining us. And when we continue to do wrong, (Sin) our hedge will become weaker, and the demons attacks become stronger.

But do demons have a right to attack children?

As parents, we are responsible to raise our children in the admonition of the Lord, and to teach them in the ways they ought to go. When we fail to do this, our children pay the price. The lifestyle a child is exposed to will become the norm for that child. Whatever is the “usual”, will become the norm to a child. If a child is exposed to witchcraft and occult practices, the child will not see anything wrong with it, unless they are corrected and taught that it is indeed wrong, and therefore it is harmful.

The fact is, children can even become demon possessed. Although this is tragic and sad, it is a reality, and it is biblical.

Mark 9:17-26 KJVS

[17] And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; [18] And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. [19] He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. [20] And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. [21] And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. [22] And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. [23] Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. [24] And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. [25] When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. [26] And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him:

Although children don’t always become demon possessed, demons are masters at gradualism; if it takes 20 years or even 50 years to ruin a person, this is not a problem.  They have nothing else to do, and this is their goal.

How can we protect our children?

The first step would be to make up our mind to believe on Jesus Christ and make Him LORD in our lives.

We as parents, are charged with helping our children learn to guard their hearts and minds from the deceptive and destructive forces of evil that often masquerade as harmless, or even good. As Christians, we have to do all we can and in the power of the Holy Spirit to make sure the enemy of our souls does not gain any ground.

Isaiah 54:13-14 KJVS

[13] And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord ; and great shall be the peace of thy children. [14] In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

2 Timothy 3:14-15 KJVS

[14] But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them ; [15] And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Post Mortem Salvation?

It was during my ghost hunting years, that I not only believed to be helping people, that called us, desperately looking for someone to rid their home of “ghosts” or demons, but I also believed wholeheartedly that I was also “helping” spirits. These spirits would often times, claim to need our assistance in guiding them to  “cross over to the other side”, or to go into “the light”.

A testimony of my personal deception

Before I became born again, in 2011, I was a leader of a paranormal investigation team, called ” Dead Time Paranormal Investigations”. One night, my paranormal research team and I were investigating the Putnam Hotel, in Deland, Florida. The historical records of this hotel showed that on Feb. 10, 1984, a 19 year old man named Stephen Hughes pushed his 22 year old pregnant girlfriend off the third story fire escape to her death.

There were also rumors of a hotel guest that killed his wife, in which, after a heated argument with her, he began choking her, and after she collapsed unconscious, he thought she was dead. And the rumor was, that after he “thought” he had killed her, he then panicked and in an attempt to stage the scene to make it appear as if she committed suicide, he threw her off the rooftop where she fell to her death. And after he did this, he himself committed suicide.

When we investigated this hotel, we got a great deal of evidence that suggested we were communicating with the “earthbound spirit” of the man that did this, that ended his own life. This spirit (which was truly a demon masquerading as the mans earthbound spirit) had us convinced that it was indeed him, and that he could not cross over into the light, because of the severity of what he did. There came a time during our investigation where we “thought” we helped this man’s soul cross over, into the light. We were all sitting around a table, on the top floor (the 6th floor) which was deserted as it was no longer in use by the hotel, expect they were using it as storage. We conducted a “table tipping seance”. While we were asking the “spirit” questions, we were told by the spirit that it could not go into the light. And that he had a hard time forgiving himself for what he did. And he wanted help from us, to “lead him to the light.” The seance was very emotional, as we all were deeply sadden by the fact that this spirit was “trapped” here and as a result was very depressed, and unable to find peace. At this point of the seance, we heard a noise. It was music. I turned around, and realized that my ghostbox (which was sitting on a shelf behind us, that was turned off) had turned on by itself, and played a song, a Christian song, called “going home”! The entire song played, and while it was playing, we were taking notice of what the words were saying, and at this point, our emotions could no longer be held at bay. We all started crying, we were crying with tears of joy, as we believed, this spirit was going into the light. There was not a dry eye in the room.

I must mention, that a “ghost box” is a radio, which is modified internally, to make it scan, continuously, searching for channels, in which, it is believed that the bits and pieces of words heard over the “white noise” while it is scanning, makes it possible for the voices of “spirits” to come through. This modification that is done on a ghost box makes it to where it can no longer “stop on a channel”, and play a song in it’s entirety.

What is “The Light”, according to scripture?

Jesus IS the light

John 9:5 KJVS

[5] As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Why do some not come to the light?

John 3:19-20 KJVS

[19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

This notion of helping earthbound spirits “cross over” into the “light”, essentially implies that salvation is offered to us, after death.

Is this possible? Let’s look at what scripture says.

First, we must know that Gods Word is sufficient and that it does tell us all that we need to know, especially when it comes to salvation!

2 Timothy 3:15-16 KJVS

[15] And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.[16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

For anyone to say that God’s Word is not sufficient and is not “clear enough” to give us instruction on how we can be saved, or on what happens to us when we die, is a direct attack on God and His Word. This notion comes from the enemy. The enemy has attacked Gods Word from the beginning.

How can we be saved?

Salvation Comes By grace, through Faith.

Acts 16:30-31 KJVS

[30] And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? [31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

How do we believe in something we cannot see? Do we have to have something proven to us, in order to have faith in it? No.

The Bible tells us what faith truly is.

Hebrews 11:1,6-8,13 KJVS

[1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [6] But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

One of the biggest problems with the notion of “Postmortem salvation” is that we must get saved BEFORE DEATH, because salvation requires FAITH!!

After death, we are automatically shown the TRUTH, as we will go immediately to heaven or to hell, and at this point, the reality of the truth is undeniable, and no longer would require faith. We will find that Gods Word is true!!

While living, we have often wondered, what truly happens to us after we die? We have asked ourselves, is the Bible really true, and is Jesus Christ really who He said He is?

But as believers, we have made a conscience decision to repent, and have faith In Jesus, and His Word, and to follow Him, by obeying His word. And as a result, once we truly make this conscious decision, God will then make it KNOWN TO US. He opens our spiritual eyes. Suddenly, when we read the Bible, it truly agrees with our spirit and we know it to be true.

The reason that this notion of “Postmortem salvation” is false (and heretical) is because we must get saved BEFORE DEATH, because salvation requires FAITH!!

And after death, it would no longer require faith. as we are automatically shown the TRUTH, as we will immediately go to heaven or to hell and at that point, the reality of the truth is undeniable, and no longer would require faith. We will find that Gods Word is true!!

As you can see, this notion of salvation after death is heresy, and we truly need to expose it for what it is.

After all, who would want us to believe we have more time to get saved, and not be prepared before we die… Satan! He is a liar!

Seeking first the kingdom of God~
