I am a Christian (Protestant, but not that it matters what kind of Christian you are), and believe in God the Almighty. I also believe that there are "supernatural" entities among us (just read the Bible you would know that from the beginning to the end, they are also mentioned in there), and that there are good entities that do God's work, as well as evil ones that do Satan's work. I do not wish to offend anyone, but this is my honest opinion. I respect that you may have a differing opinion, and I ask that you respect mine.

I believe that otherworldly "entities" (spirits / demons / guardians / elementals or whatever we may know them as) all may appear different, but have the same purpose. Whether we worship / befriend / are in a relationship / are terrorised by them, their sole objective is to prevent us from having a truly fulfilling life on earth as God intended. They may convince us that they are our "guides" or "protectors", "past lovers" etc, however these are all lies. The bible warns us about "... Deceitful spirits and teachings of demons..." (1 Tim 4:1) which these entities are.

Many of these entities (good AND bad) can appear to us in dreams, apparitions (lights / animal / object / shape / shadow / people etc), voices, thoughts, possession, and other means. They start off by occasional interactions, to both judge your reaction, and also to get us used to the idea that they exist. They can manipulate our feelings so as to incite happiness, fear, comfort, bewilderment, etc.

These entities may choose appear to be benevolent and "help" or "guide" us (foreknowledge / warnings / winning lottery / making items appear) or "comforting" us (hugs, voices, feelings, etc), or even claiming to be angels of God. The Bible has this to say about them (2 Cor 11:14-15) "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve."

Alternatively they may also be malevolent, terrorising us, making items break / drop, instilling fear through voices, sounds, apparitions, etc. It's like a game of chess, whatever they can do to drive us away from God is what they will implement. You may experience an entity that will not leave you (known as varying terms such as "familiars" or "attachments") no matter how much you try to get rid of it. Don't lose heart, even the most persistent ones can be driven away by prayer.

If not addressed, often these interactions will increase in frequency and intensity, and soon these entities would move from interference in our lives, to achieving their objective of being entrenched in our lives. You may also lose the will or desire to drive them away and just be resigned to your "fate". They may reveal mystical information about the spirit world, or about past or future events (they have limited knowledge of those) which may or may not be true, but a common feature is deceit. Whether they choose to reveal or conceal or change information to affect your thoughts and behaviour. Their influence can bring about mental illness over a long term (schizophrenia / paranoia / hallucinations etc). Sometimes, they may also encourage suicides or risky behaviour leading to death.

Also, just as humans fight and have disputes, their world also has hierarchy and much discord. This can be seen by the way some of these entities can manipulate our senses or have some power of influence in the physical world, and also are able to "drive away" others.

A book which I have come across which has the best description of this is "Hostage To The Devil" by Malachi Martin. It's a bit different from others in that it's written from the perspective from the victims of spiritual oppression. If you or someone you know is currently experiencing influence from spiritual entities, you may be able to relate to the cases in the book. An interesting article on possession and exorcism, written for Vanity Fair by William Friedkin (who directed the movie "The Exorcist"), a self-confessed AGNOSTIC, can be found at https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2016/10/father-amorth-the-vatican-exorcist

I believe that no matter how long your "relationship" with If you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour (because he died for our sins), the Holy Spirit resides in you and evil entities CANNOT enter nor control you.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

Select Army Experiences -- Old Mowbray (provost) Camp, Sg on 2017-04-10

As mentioned in my first story, I am a Christian. I have had "supernatural" incidents happen around me, but mostly not affecting me exclusively nor directly. I believe the Holy Spirit keeps unwelcome entities at bay. On to my next topic, Mowbray Camp. While each experience below might not be signifi...

Select Experiences From The Army -- The Door Slams on 2017-03-29

First up I want to say that I am a Christian (Protestant, but not that it matters what kind of Christian you are), and believe in God the Almighty.

Glad we were able to find an earthly reason for the sound. My ebay app rings "ka-ching!" each time I get a bid, makes my heart soar 😁

Hi CrystalAwakening, I share Melda's apprehension about this entity and would also like to reiterate Jitow's warning. Demons / Evil spirits don't always project fear into people, they are deceivers, they will do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Familiar spirits seek to build up familiarity by constantly getting you used to their presence.

I would suggest that you reject it immediately and do not acknowledge its presence further. Please read my profile for my views on this.
Ghosts4ever I think you and your cousins should have gone to church 😁

Just for the benefit of those who are unacquainted with the "White Lady" it is an apparition, also called "Pontianak" or "Kuntilanak". Generally believed to be the spirit of a woman who died during childbirth and harbours deep hatred for men in particular. "She" seeks out / feasts on virgins, men, newborns. It can appear as an animal or a beautiful lady, but its real appearance is a hideous female with a long tongue.

In my opinion, if real, it is just another set of demons who take on this form to drive people to the witch doctors / healers / protective amulets and prevent one from enjoying a fulfilling life with God.
Hi SilentAngel, in my opinion, and from my experiences, these so-called "ghosts" are nothing more than demons. They might tell you they're guardian angels, spirits, whatever, heck they might even give you a forewarning to my message but best to stay away from them. They like to "infest" in groups, and continuing to interact with them will encourage more of them to join the merry party. You will find that they like to mix truth and lies, and you won't be able to tell one from the other. Do you think it's a coincidence that all of them "forgot" their names?

If I were you I'd visit a pastor or priest of my nearest church (not cult 😆) and seek help and advise from them. Please see my YGS profile for my views on this.

Hi Sid926 I agree with Rook it was probably a dream / nightmare that you woke up to.
Could someone have ben testing an LED floodlight? Perhaps that's a possibility you saw someone testing an LED floodlitght'?

Hi MyStory15, what I'm going to say is my opinion, your friend is right, demons can and do influence the outcomes of some tarrot readings. Their world is as complex (or perhaps more so) than ours, but I believe that they have 1 main aim -- to prevent you from knowing God well. Your "incubus" is just another demon conforming to the pattern of what we think an incubus should do (jealous "spirit"). The pendant is of no use, the demon may stay away for a while to make you believe that it is beneficial.

I think the best way to get rid of it would be to seek help from your local Christian church (Most Germans have a functional grasp of English). The pastors may have some experience in dealing with these demons or should be able to at least refer you to someone who can. I would say stay away from psychics or spiritual healers because, well you're just getting more of the same. Please look at my profile for more of my thoughts on this.
Hi BuskyBolder, my condolences for your loss.

I believe that once dead, our souls do not return to earth. Barring any natural occurrence that caused the switch to flip I believe such activity is demonic in nature. Thus I would advise you not to pray to your "best friend" (because it is not him who's listening) and also not do anything to encourage such activity. For more of my views on this please read my profile.

Hi sherm784, I have the same question / thoughts as Melda (you beat me again to it Melda 😠). It could be your subconsciousness. However if it really is an entity, it is a really persistent one (3 years, once each year)! If so please see my profile page for my thoughts concerning these.
Hi Ceci, welcome to the forum, I'm curious, do you have a picture of this ring?

Hi TheCynic, it seems that you wanted to contact these entities (your previous story) and they reciprocated! I would suggest ceasing efforts to contact them and to consult a pastor or a priest. You certainly wouldn't want to live the rest of your life with these things "attached" to you!

Hi haniibee (very clever nick btw). I believe these entities are not things that you would want to have in your life, as the more you accept them, the greater their influence on you would be. (For my thoughts on them please see my profile). I would suggest seeking help from a pastor or a priest, as these entities are not part of a normal life.
Hi Allicatt, I don't believe that that's your real "daughter", more like an entity that is using your memory of her to intrude into your life (please see my profile for my views on this). Even the messages that it is sending to you and your husband are differing, which proves that it preys on your (and your husband's) weaknesses to get you to accept it. I would recommend visiting and getting help from a pastor or a priest asap.
Hi thatqueenb, those experiences sound terrible. Am I right to assume this doesn't happen at your new home? What was your mom's take on the experiences?
Hi Meldel, is it possible that the person went around the house to look for "Miriam" himself instead?
Hi Cas, you need to seek help quick, it's better not to fall into a state where these interactions with it become the new normal. I think it's best to seek help from a pastor or a priest asap. Please do look at my profile for more info.

Hi Meldel, is your dad still around to recount the story in greater detail?
Hi southcelt, looking forward to reading your stories to come.

Hi ArianEgyptianGirl_89, I'm curious... When you sought help from "church people" what did they say?
