"A place to find God's light when darkness surrounds you." Hi, my name is Lonnie Bret Mackley and this website is for anyone who is experiencing a current problem with a haunting or evil spirit in their home, and who truly wants to get rid of it for good with God's help. This website is also for Spirit-filled Christians who feel called to help people who are being haunted. So if you are having a problem with ghosts, demons, or a haunting, or if you feel led to help people in this way, then this website is for you. This website is not for people who just want to investigate ghosts and hauntings, or for people who embrace or practice the occult in any form, (unless you seek freedom from it). This site is meant to help you evict spirits. I have experienced a long-term haunting myself, so I know how stressful it can be. But God helped me to get rid of the spirit in my home for good, and I know that He can do the same thing for you. I am a licensed pastor, prophetic minister, and certified counselor, and this website can give you information, advice, and prayer in order to help end your haunting for good. In time I may go on-site to investigate a paranormal problem, but I can do a lot from here spiritually now as well. This website is a spiritual emergency room for the truly haunted to get Christian help from instead of turning to the Catholic church or the psychics for possible help. Only God's light can overcome darkness. As believers we have authority over all evil spirits in Jesus' name, so trust that God can help you to get your home back once again. MK 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; How To End Your Own Haunting by Lonnie Mackley ISA 41:12 Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against 13 you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. When I faced my long haunting I have to be honest with you, I felt very helpless, alone, and discouraged many times like there was nobody to turn to for help. And somehow I think that God wanted me to see what it feels like for normal people that are being harassed and attacked to not have anyone there to turn to for help. I tried emailing people, calling people, and praying non-stop, but still the activity persisted, and I was dumbfounded on how to deal with it, or to make it stop. It seems that just when you think it is going to stop, something new happens just to knock you off balance and keep you on edge some more. But then God began to show me how to get rid of this spirit and make sure that it would never come back again. Below are just a few basic things that you can do to end your own haunting if you cannot find any good help in your area. These are just basic guidelines, so ask God yourself what you should do to get rid of any unwelcome spiritual visitors in your home. 1. Identify any areas that you or your family have been breaking God's life-rules or playing around with the occult. It may not be as overt as playing with a Ouija Board, but what you watch on TV and surf on the Internet can act like a door that allows certain things to come into your home. So make sure that your family are keeping those spiritual doors closed. 2. Try to discreetly find out the history of the place that you are living in, who lived there before you, who may have died, or any occult activity that may have gone on there before you moved in. The haunting may not have anything to do with you at all, it might just be something that someone else did that caused this spiritual activity to begin in your home. 3. Even though the unwanted spiritual activity in your home may spur you to want to study and research the paranormal be careful because this too can act as a volition of will as you delve deeper into this dark spiritual area. It can also make the ghost or demon seem much bigger in your mind than it really is, and generate a spirit of fear that just feeds this spirit. 4. Put some crosses up in your home and make sure that they are tacked down good just in case there is a demon there that may try to rip them down. Get rid of anything in the home that is occult, pagan, or new age in nature, and say a prayer renouncing any and all involvement in anything that might be an offense to God and limit His ability to help you. 5. Walk through each room of your home and take a bottle of olive oil and put the sign of the cross over each door (including closets, basements, or attics, where a spirit can hide) and say, "In the name of Jesus Christ I dedicate this room and home to the glory of God and I command any and all evil or human spirits to leave this place and to never return. 6. Have a meeting as a family and turn your lives over to God and ask for His help in ending your haunting. Verbally renounce and repent of any sin in your life and forgive everyone you have been angry with. Anoint each other with oil the same way you did with the doors and get bibles for each of you to say prayers with at night, and to sleep with as protection. 7. Go through the phone book or Internet and look for a Spirit-filled bible believing church in your area and ask them to come and bless your home. Pray and ask God to send the right people. Refrain from calling in psychics or people that do not believe in God, as this can actually hinder a house-clearing because God condemns mediums and spiritists. LEV 19:31 " `Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God." The main thing to remember is that God wants to help you, so try not to get discouraged if you hit a rough spot. There are three basic ways to get rid of an evil spirit; One way is to starve them out by just not feeding them what they have been feeding on whether it is fear or sin. The second way is to drive them out with the power and authority of Jesus Christ as a faith-filled believer. The third way is to squeeze them out by filling yourself up so much with God that they have no room left to exist in your life. Trying to fight a spirit with fleshly tactics will never work. I tried sealing up my home with over 17 tubes of caulking to stop the bad smells and it did nothing. It wasn't until God sent angels to drive the spirit out that the smells finally went away. It was interesting though, right after the spirit left you could smell the beautiful smell of cinnamon all through the house instead of the putrid stench that had been there before. And lastly, put on the full armor of God like it says in scriptures below. EPH 6:11 12 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly 13 realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be 14 able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with 15 the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and 16 with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil 17 18 one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. How To know If You're Haunted by Lonnie Mackley JAS 2:19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that--and shudder. REV 12:9 The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. LK 8:31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. Believe it or not, all demons are believers in Jesus Christ because demons once lived in Heaven and were able to see Him themselves. They were actually His servants for a time, but when they rebelled and were cast down to the earth they were given parameters about what they could or could not do here concerning humans. If they violate these rules they are sent to the Abyss which is a prison for demons in Hell, and they are very terrified of being sent there. So why am I telling you about demons when we are talking about ghosts? Well, because a demon can only enter a humans life or home by permission or volition of will, and playing around with too much paranormal stuff can attract and allow them to come in and masquerade as a ghost when it's not. There have been many people who got too involved in the whole ghost-hunting scene and attracted evil spirits in this way. So even though you go through the signs below to know if you're being haunted or not, just keep in mind that you should try to identify what you are actually dealing with; a demon, or a ghost. If you're not sure what is in your home get in touch with a Spirit-filled discerning prophetic Christian and ask them to take a walk though your home. The typical signs for a haunting are as follows: 1. Feeling a sense that you are constantly being watched or spied upon. You will often feel jumpy and/or on edge if a spirit is influencing the atmosphere in your home. You may also be looking over your shoulder alot for no apparent reason. You will just feel, "creeped out". 2. Strange out of place sounds. This could be bangs or knocks on the walls, muffled voices, whispers, or even a voice you recognize, but the real person was not talking to you or even in the home. This is either a ghost trying to communicate, or a demon trying to intimidate. 3. Strange unexplainable smells. This could range anywhere from a cologne or perfume smell; to rotting meat, sulfur, or garbage smells. You might even smell smoking. Always check for a natural explanation though, and the nasty smells usually indicate a demonic. 4. Things vanishing or being moved. This could be a ghost just wanting to possess or move something, but if the items do not reappear, you may be dealing with a demon. No matter what kind of spirit it is that stole the item, just command it to return it in Jesus name. 5. Being touched or feeling like something passed through you. If a spirit passes through you then you will likely feel chilled to the bone in that area. You may be touched especially at night, and if this happens command the spirit to stop it and ask God to send His angels. 6. Seeing a spirit or orb. Obviously if you see a spirit then there is something there whether it's a ghost, or just a demon imitating one. Demons tend to be more grotesque tho'. An orb looks like a little bubble about 3/8'' in diameter. I've seen one in my home go into my wall. 7. Pets acting harassed and threatened. If your pet starts acting like an intruder is in the house, or it starts running around as if trying to get away from something, this could either be the "kitty crazies", or they might be seeing or sensing something that you cannot see. 8. Bad dreams or nightmares. This will likely be a demonic presence trying to get into your head so to speak at a very vulnerable time, namely when you're asleep. Or it could just be the pizza you ate. Either way, just rebuke the spirit and command it to go in Jesus name. 9. Cold spots in your rooms or home. If you're dealing with just a ghost and not a demon, then that spirit will likely try to drain power from things in order to manifest itself which can leave a void of cold. Also flashlight batteries going dead for no reason can be a sign too. 10. Family strife and odd mood swings. Ghosts can emit negative emotions at you to some degree, say if they were very depressed in life. But if it's a demon then it will try to generate negative emotions in order to weaken your family unity and strengthen its power over you. If a number of these things above are happening on a fairly consistent basis then it is very possible that something might indeed be there. Chances are though, that there is nothing, and even if there is something a little spiritual housecleaning on your part can help to get rid of it. First of all ask yourself this, has anyone in the house given this spirit permission to come and to dwell there? Remember, all a spirit needs is volition of will on someones part to set up residence there. Has anyone been dabbling in the occult, or doing things that act as a "landing strip" for hovering demons to come land on? Permission or volition of will on your part must be completely revoked, and Jesus must be invited to come and live there in place of any evil in order to get rid of all ghosts or demons for good. It might also help to contact a local Spirit-filled Christian church in your area and ask them to come pray with you and bless your home. Throw out any occult objects that have been an open door to the spirit-realm and refrain from watching or surfing pro-occult media. And if you still need help contact a Christian prophet with good spiritual authority to help drive it out. They can pray for you and counsel you as well. And remember that Jesus Christ can drive out any spirit. LK 11:20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. MT 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Do I Have A Ghost or Demon? by Lonnie Mackley LK 24:37 38 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, "Why are 39 you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have." So, if you are seeing and witnessing paranormal phenomena, how do you know whether you are dealing with a ghost or a demon? Well there are a few ways to tell if you know what to look for. Ghosts are basically just people that don't have bodies anymore, and they have very little power to really do much here except scare you a bit. Demons on the other hand are fallen angels that hate God and man and seek to destroy that which God loves meaning people, and have a lot more power to do things. Ghosts just want to be left in peace or may try to communicate with the humans in the home; whereas demons just want to terrorize a human, gradually break down their will, and eventually make the humans body their home. PR 26:2 Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest. Ghosts normally just hang out in a familiar place like the home that they lived in while alive, but demons have to be invited in through either gross sin, or by actually asking them to interact with you like through a Ouija board or seance'. Even going on a ghost walk or paranormal investigation can suffice as a volition of will to a spirit, and they may follow you home. Sometimes the activity in your home may be due to a previous owners actions, but either way permission to be there must be revoked whether it is a ghost or demon. There are laws here concerning spirits boundaries and what they can and cannot do, so you have a choice as to whether you allow a ghost or demon to operate in your home and life, or not. MT 12:43 When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Demons may also try to pretend to be ghosts at first just to get you to accept them. The activity may be mild at first like things moving around, strange sounds, etc. which is meant to just intimidate you and make you feel like the spirit has control, not you. Then when the demon has broken your will down enough the activity escalates until you feel completely powerless and allow the demon to just take over. Ghosts have little power to really do much but demons can literally turn a home upside down. Ghosts can be seen during the day just as much as night, whereas demons usually just operate at night in the darkness and they fear going near the light. Ghosts usually focus on your home, while demons focus on you. 2CO 5:8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. Now I want to make something perfectly clear. If you are a Christian and know the Lord, then chances are you will already understand when you die that God is waiting for you and there should be no confusion about going to be with Him. But there are other human spirits that for different reasons feel they must remain here on earth in order to resolve something, or who fear facing God because of the evil life they lived here. And I believe that almost all people do go into the light and face God when they die, and whatever happens to them after that is up to God. So don't worry about becoming a ghost. Ghosts can be evil as well, and even work with demons here sometimes, but they lack the power to do much on their own. DA 2:22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. If you are dealing with a ghost the best thing you can do is to pray and ask God to send angels to escort the spirit(s) out of your home to wherever it needs to go. If you are dealing with a demon then you need to call in help to drive it out in Jesus name. Either way, neither ghosts, nor demons belong in your home, so get rid of them. Dedicate your home to Jesus Christ, get rid of all occult paraphernalia, repent of all sin that may have allowed the evil in, and call in a true man of God to bless your home. Play worship music, put up crosses and lay out some bibles. Bring so much light into your home that darkness will not want to stay there anymore. Know too, that Jesus Christ has given you authority to drive out all demons. MK 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; What Are Ghosts Anyway? by Lonnie Mackley Ghost- DEF. The spirit of a dead person, especially one believed to appear in bodily likeness to living persons or to haunt former habitats. LK 24:37 38 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, "Why are 39 you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have." LK 11:20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. REV 12:9 The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. So what are ghosts anyway? Are they demons, dead humans without a body, or just a figment of peoples imaginations? Well Jesus Himself seems to make a clear distinction between ghosts and demons in the above scriptures, and He states that the only difference between Him and a ghost at that time was the fact that He had flesh and bone, and a ghost didn't. Jesus did not say demon, he said "ghost". And the frightened disciples did not think they were seeing a demon (which they had already been around), they thought they were seeing a ghost. So ghosts according to the bible are considered to be the spirits of dead humans, whereas demons were once angels who rebelled against God and were cast out of heaven and who now seek a human host body to tempt, control, and possibly possess. DT 18:10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who 11 practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. DT 32:17 They sacrificed to demons, which are not God-- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your fathers did not fear. The old testament as well makes a clear distinction between "the dead" and demons which people worshiped as gods. Even back then they had mediums and spiritists that did their best to try to speak to the ghosts of dead humans, and God forbade them to conduct such practices. So as long as man has been present on the earth we have had ghosts and demons also existing here that people have encountered and foolishly tried to communicate with. Especially today, many people go to mediums seeking to talk to their dead friends or relatives, but as you can see by the above scripture God condemns this evil practice. Many people seek to fulfill their spiritual needs outside of God's laws so they venture into areas of spiritual darkness that often lead them astray and into dangerous bondage to demons. They are spiritual outlaws trying to take a shortcut into areas that God has stated are off limits. LK 23:42 43 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. " Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise." 2CO 5:6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we 7 8 are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So what about Christians, do they become ghosts, or do they go to heaven? Also, aren't people supposed to instantly go to hell when they die if they did not serve God and lived an evil life here on earth? According to what Jesus and Paul stated above, those people that did have an established relationship with Jesus Christ here on earth instantly go to be with Jesus when they die and leave their body. They are considered to be righteous (people that are right with God) spirits. As far as the other people that did not have a relationship with Jesus (unrighteous spirits), they seem to instantly go to a place of punishment like in the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke Chapter 16. So why would the bible talk about two different spiritual conditions of humans after their death, but yet still mention that their ghosts dwelling here as well? It's simple, some people do not leave here when they die. MK 6:49 50 but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, because they all saw him and were terrified. 1CO 13:12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. Apparently people in back in Jesus day saw what they believed were spirits of deceased humans still dwelling here on the earth. The same disciples that were so frightened of what they thought was a ghost walking on the lake had also seen demon possessed people and knew how to deal with demons. So why would they still believe in ghosts if they were not real? Surely they must have asked Jesus about it at some point. You see, It could be that some humans for whatever reasons choose to remain here on earth after they die and they become what we consider to be ghosts. But my guess is that most people do cross over. My opinion is that the righteous spirits go to be with God in heaven instantly when they die, and the majority of other unrighteous spirits still enter the spirit-realm and are sent to hell until their time of judgment. But there are some souls that either because they committed great evil here and are too afraid to face God, or because they are confused and just want desperately to remain here, do not "go into the light" so to speak and choose to stay here. REV 20:13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. 1PE 4:5 But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. The humans that do remain here though are unrighteous spirits since they do not know God and can thus be classified as "evil spirits" (even though they may be a "nice ghost"), because their sins were never forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ while they were alive, otherwise they would be with Him. In the end God will have to sort it all out. God tells us not to try to communicate with, or consult the dead, and He condemns mediums and spiritists who attempt to do this. Even psychics that talk to ghosts to solve crimes are still violating God's laws. If you encounter a ghost, or a demon pretending to be a ghost, then the thing to do is to instantly turn to God and to godly help in order to get rid of it and force it to go where it belongs. If someone has already lived their life then they don't belong here anymore and need to leave now. I've lived in a home with a ghost, and in a home with a demon; and a demon usually just wants to create fear in order to control you; whereas a ghost often hangs out in a more secluded part of the house and very rarely interacts with humans. But either way, Jesus has authority over all spirits and He can make them leave. MT 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. MK 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; The Soon Coming Flood Of Evil by Lonnie Mackley REV 12:12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. Since we are reaching the end of man's rule upon the earth and nearing the beginning of Jesus Christ's 1000 year millennial reign, we will see a final harvest of souls where people must decide to either accept or reject God's leadership over their lives now. Now you might wonder, if God is so powerful why doesn't He just lock up all of the demons and have one big happy land here on earth, but God does not waste anything and even though the angels may have rebelled with satan and became the demons God still uses these nasty spirits to tempt and test man to see whether they will choose good or evil much in the same way that He allowed satan to test Job in the bible to see whether he would forsake God under trial. When I went through an extended period of dealing with an evil spirit in my home I asked God why this was allowed to happen in the first place, and this is what the Holy Spirit told me. He said that there was a coming flood of evil upon the earth where many people would end up with evil spirits in their homes and that God wanted to raise up people beforehand in order to help these people once the flood of evil began. You see, when you have a demonic infestation in your home the only thing that can remove it is faith in the name and power of Jesus Christ, nothing else will work. Only those people who are actively serving Jesus will have the protection and authority that they need to help others being harassed by demons. RO 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. It is one thing to have a few people here and there who have evil spirits in their homes or bodies, but it is another thing to have an infestation of them. The Catholic church has too much red tape and not enough exorcists to deal with an epidemic, and the psychics just try to use greater evil spirits to drive away lesser ones to end the haunting. But the spirits that are coming are higher level demons that only the power of Jesus Christ can remove. Some people will foolishly try to get rid of these evil spirits only to be sent running for their lives after these demons attack them. That's why God is raising up people now who can be savvy about how these deceptive spirits work, and not shrink back when they come and attack. You must decide in the days ahead which side you will stand on; the side of satan and darkness, or the side of Jesus and His mighty army of light. There are no gray areas, and there is no white witchcraft that you can use to beat back this darkness. Many evil spirits will come in pretending to be spirit guides or even ghosts, but after the human has foolishly allowed them in the true natures of these evil beings will be released upon the whole family that lives in the home. Any occult devices such as Ouija boards must be strongly avoided because once you let a demon in it is impossible to then get rid of it without the power of God. Give your heart and life to Jesus today, and be ready to battle to coming flood of evil. 1JN 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. My Haunting Experience By Lonnie Mackley My story began when a man upstairs in my apartment building that I did not know committed suicide. I knew about this because the apartment landlord told me about it. Shortly thereafter I was sitting in my basement apartment living room and watching TV when the strong smell of men's cologne flooded the room and a cold chill went through my legs right down to the bone. It was a deep and strange cold and it was summertime. I could sense that I was no longer alone. I jumped up and checked to see if the window was open or if there was anything in the room that could have created that smell, but all of the windows were closed and I smelled everything and nothing smelled like the strong odor that I was smelling. Then some strange things began to happen in my apartment like bangs on the walls (I had no neighbors on any side of me), things moving on their own, things vanishing and then reappearing, being touched at night, strange putrid smells, and I also saw an orb float by right in front of me and go into the wall. I asked the landlord about the man upstairs that had killed himself and he told me that the man did in fact wear strong cologne every day because he was a waiter in a local restaurant. But in time as the activity increased I began to realize that I may not just dealing with a ghost, but also a demon. Everything that went on seemed to be to try to generate fear and make me feel powerless and helpless in my own home. I contacted a few Christian deliverance ministries who felt that it was indeed a demon I was dealing with. Because I was a Spirit-filled Christian I began to really take authority over this spirit and over my home, and the activity did seem to die down for a while, but in time it would still flair up again. One day after this spirit had hid something I was just using deep under a pile of stuff in a closet I had not been near at all that day I finally got fed up with it and that day there came a powerful confrontation where God helped me to drive this nasty spirit out. I did not drive it out, but the power of Jesus Christ drove it out. I could sense and feel angels in my home and after the evil spirit was finally taken away, I smelled cinnamon. I have served as a prophetic minister for many years now, so I am used to dealing with spirits, but not really haunting's. I then felt led by the Holy Spirit to begin learning about haunting's because He said that there was a coming demonic epidemic of them. As you have probably noticed there are many more paranormal shows on TV now, but most of them only deal with investigations and rarely is there a successful verifiable eviction. But what I saw coming is a great flood of evil where there is going to need to be teams of strong Spirit-filled Christians ready to get rid of these demonic spirits. The Catholic church will have too much red tape and psychics only make things worse. So, do you feel called to come and fight? REV 12:12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. Spooking Yourself by Lonnie Mackley Spook DEF: To startle and cause nervous activity in; frighten RO 8:15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father. When we become involved in a lot of occult or scary things, it oftentimes has the effect of spooking ourselves. This may seem like good honest fun, but the truth is that if you spend too much time playing with darkness, darkness may soon come to play with you. Watching too many paranormal shows or horror movies, going on ghost-hunts or ghost-walks, playing occult games with your friends at sleepovers, or associating with people that embrace the occult can act as a volition of will to a spirit of fear or a demon that wants to enter your life. If you allow a root of fear to enter your heart you believe a lie that you are defenseless in life against evil, and this belief can open up a hole in the spirit-realm and allow dark things to come into your home, life, and body. If God has called you to help the haunted or evict spirits from homes or bodies then just remember to keep things in balance and do not allow yourself to be seduced by spiritual darkness. There have been a number of Christians that got a little too close and hungry for spiritual knowledge and they ended up lost in the occult. When an evil spirit enters a home they will progressively try to scare the residents there and make them feel like they have no control or protection against the evil. Demons actually feed off of the fear and it gives them more power to do even more scary things in your home. The best thing that you can do is to not foolishly allow a demon into your home by playing around with the occult (like with a Ouija board). Demons are liars and they will impersonate dead relatives, or even pretend to be a ghost that needs your pity and help. Don't believe it! If you are a child of light then you need to remain in the safety of the light and only enter the darkness to do God's will as He directs you to. Actually anyone doing paranormal work should be a Christian. Keep your TV and Internet viewing habits at a healthy place for you spiritually, and avoid overloading on paranormal media. Scaring yourself seems like fun but it is like opening up a hole in your home and hoping that nobody comes in and gets you. If you stay close to God's light you will be safe and avoid spooking yourself in the darkness. 1JN 1:6 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the 7 truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. Looking for Light in the Darkness by Lonnie Mackley MT 6:22 "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Have you ever wondered why someone can be so pulled toward darkness rather than light? Many times it is because people are seeking to fill the spiritual void they feel inside with a god that they can research and control on their own terms. A god of darkness. Most people do not like the idea of being accountable to a God of light that tells them what they can or cannot do, but they still feel the need to seek spiritual answers, so they begin to delve deeper and deeper into the dark spiritual realm until darkness becomes their religion. MT 7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he 22 who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, `Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many 23 miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, `I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' Many people in the paranormal community will tell you that they are religious and that they are even Christians, yet they do not really know the Lord and they wonder around from one place of darkness to another to get their next spiritual fix by ghost-hunting. You see, you cannot just know about Jesus, you have to do the will of God for your life in order to be saved. If part of God's will for your life is getting rid of evil spirits from peoples homes and bodies then so be it, but we should never try to replace God's light with spiritual darkness. 1JN 1:6 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the 7 truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. You will never overcome darkness with darkness, you need light to overcome darkness, and only God's spiritual light can overcome spiritual darkness. If you try to do paranormal work without using God's protection and direction then you are really just seeking spiritual fellowship with darkness in place of God. God wants to use you to help dispel darkness with His light, not to join the darkness, so let Jesus bring you fully into His light today. PS 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains. How To Deal With Halloween by Lonnie Mackley DT 32:17 They sacrificed to demons, which are not God-- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your fathers did not fear. Below is a brief synopsis of what Halloween or Samhain is all about. Halloween is the modern name for Samhain or Sauin, an ancient Celtic holy day. The feast is seasonal and marks the end of summer and the beginning of winter. It's considered a very magical time when the dead walk amongst the living and the veils between the past, present, and future may be lifted for prophecy and divination. "The bottom line is though, it is a time when humans fellowship more directly with evil spirits for revelation and blessing". Even though Halloween's roots began with pagan gods and goddesses, and a celebration of fall harvest and the change in seasons, it was also a time when the veil to the spirit-realm was believed to be at it's thinnest, so most pagan religions would exploit this time as an opportunity to communicate with spirits in order to gain information and to make sacrifices for future blessings from these demon-gods. So it's basically just the same old thing that man has done from the beginning; fellowshipping with, and worshiping demons in place of God; just in different forms, and in different countries. Every society has pagan (demon worship) roots of some form because when the demons were sent here to earth with satan they lured humans into corruption, debasement, idol worship, and sin. It was so bad in the land of Canaan which is now Israel that God commanded them to annihilate everyone there because they were even sacrificing their own children to a demon-god there called Molech. LEV 18:21 " `Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. Once Christianity came along they tried to create Christian alternative holidays to these demonic celebrations in order to appease the people, and maybe bring some light into the darkness there, but often with poor success. Now in the western culture satan has turned Halloween into nothing more than a "celebration of evil" on a demonically hyperactive night. Dressing our children up like little demons, ghouls, and witches is a form of volition of will for evil spirits, and it is not a spiritually safe or healthy thing to do for your children, or even yourself for that matter. Is it fun? Yes. Do kids love it? Yes, I certainly did as a child. But as a Christian it creates a conflict for which there are only a few possible solutions. 1. You can hide inside the walls of your home with the lights off and hope all the knocking little goblins will finally go away. 2. You can have a "Harvest Celebration" at your church and hide inside the church walls there. Or 3., You can dress your kids up like little demons and send them out and just hope and pray that they don't get spiritually defiled or a spirit of fear from it. MT 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. But maybe there is a fourth solution; what about shining our light in the darkness? How about dressing our kids up as bible characters and going out with them as they say "Jesus loves you" or something else uplifting as they get their candy? Or how about praying for and meeting your neighbors as you walk down the street with your kids? Or, if you stay home try pre-stuffing some baggies with quality candy and bible tracts. The tracts don't have to be anti-Halloween either, they can just be simple evangelical tracts with the gospel message. Obviously we don't have to go along with the devil's crowd just because they come up with a holiday that's nearly impossible for children to resist and they are soliciting at your door all night. Whatever you do though, do it out of faith, and not out of fear. Make no mistake tho', Halloween regardless of its pagan origins is nothing more than a celebration of evil targeted toward children to defile them and draw them deeper into spiritual darkness. But we can choose to be a light in that darkness for Jesus, rather than just running and hiding from it. 1PE 2:12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. How You Can Help The Haunted by Lonnie Mackley 2CO 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the 4 God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. The main thing to do if the Holy Spirit sends someone to you that is having problems with spirits in their home is to listen to what they have to say, and to ask the Holy Spirit what to do next, if anything. Try to take them outside of the home to talk if possible like to a park or somewhere else that is private. Real paranormal problems are rare, but with more and more people delving into this area we will likely see more people with spirits in their homes, or more people that think there are. Here are a few tips to help you help someone that may be having a problem. Your best spirit- hunting tool with always be the Holy Spirit through. 1. Just listen carefully and write things down. Does it seem like the person is trying to sell you on the idea that they are haunted; does it seem like they are seeking attention? Or do they look truly stressed out and desperate for any kind of real help? Are other people in the house experiencing things, or is it just one person? Any pictures, evp's, or other evidence? 2. Ask them about any occult involvement including obviously Ouija boards, Tarot cards, going to psychics, going on ghost-hunts, watching a lot of paranormally themed TV programs, or reading and surfing paranormal websites. All a spirit needs is volition of will in some form in order to enter someones life and home. Ask about the rest of the family too. 3. Is the person willing to keep psychics, paranormal investigators, the press, and others out of the picture, or are they seeking that? If someone truly has a legitimate problem then they will just want the spirit out, period. Do they want to keep their ghost and make friends with it? If they are not serious about getting it to leave then you're wasting your time there. AC 19:15 One day the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are 16 you?" Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding. 4. Are they willing to say a prayer asking God to step in and help them? Will they renounce any and all occult involvement and accept Jesus Christ into their life as their Lord? If not, you could actually make their situation worse once the demons return and want revenge. 5. Are they willing to remove any occult paraphernalia from their home and break off all contact with any psychics and/or other people that may be feeding the problem? Are they willing to stop watching paranormal TV shows, surfing websites, and going on ghost-hunts? 6. Is this person taking any drugs, or do they have a history of any mental illness or addiction in their life that has been allowing the spirit to stay attached to them? Do they have people in their family line that have practiced withcraft, satanism, or the occult? Would they welcome a deliverance session with the right people if things were kept discreet? 7. Are they willing to allow a team of Christian paranormal people to come into their home and help them to expel the spirit? What is the end result they want to see from your involvement there? Is there a place they can take the children while you do the expulsion, and are they willing to leave the house while you do a night of investigating there? MT 12:44 Then it says, `I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, 45 swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation." If you get the general impression that they are really not that desperate or willing then just don't help them. Most of the cases that you get (at least for now) will not be real spirits in the sense of a haunting, but will be evil spirits they have allowed in their lives because of sin. Or many times there is a natural explanation that can debunk the problem. If they will truly repent from the heart then you have a chance of cleaning their home for good, but if not, then their deliverance will likely only last until after you leave and those evil spirits will come back with a vengeance and punish the people for inviting you there in the first place. If you get the impression that what they are telling you is actually true and they really do desperately need help, then ask the Holy Spirit what to do and decide as a team what your next course of action should be. It would be good to have a prophet, intercessors, a tech person, counselor, and someone to comfort the people; but if God says to go then just go with who and what you have. Invite the family to leave the house for a night if possible and try to assess what you really have there with prayer, discernment, and any electronics that you have brought with you. You should know by morning whether there's something there. If there is a spirit there, lead the people through a prayer of repentance and salvation and allow them to decree that they are taking back their home and that the spirit must leave the house and never return. Invite God's Holy Spirit and angels to come in and help you to evict any spirits there and to forcibly send them to where they should rightfully be. Be sure that you have thrown away any occult objects that have allowed the spirit to remain there first. Go from room to room (even closets) and anoint the tops of the doors with olive oil in the sign of a cross and say "In the name of Jesus Christ we just command any and all evil or human spirits to leave this home and to never come back" and proclaim this house to be the territory of Jesus Christ now. It might help to put up a few crosses in the home as well. After you leave give the people a small bottle of olive oil and a bible if possible and teach them to protect themselves with God's help. Make sure that they have an email address or phone number to contact you with again should they need more help. But try to pass their spiritual dependence onto God rather than you so that they can stand on their own spiritual feet. Make sure that your group keeps praying for these people especially right after you leave because that is the time that a counterattack will likely come. Fast and repent before taking on a demonic and ask the Holy who should go with you. Keep listening to the Holy Spirit and asking Him what to do if anything else. Do not fear because fear strengthens evil. ISA 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. What About Ghost-Hunting? by Lonnie Mackley JN 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." So what about going on ghost-hunts or ghost walks, is that something that God would want me to do or not? Well the question you have to ask yourself is, why are you going on it the first place? Is it to delve deeper into darkness to look for spiritual answers, or are you going because the the Holy Spirit is leading you there in order to bring God's light into that darkness? Playing around in the darkness is dangerous because the place that you go to may very well have evil spirits there along with ghosts that may want to attach themselves to you and follow you home. Many demons even pretend to be ghosts in order to fool you. DA 2:22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. You see, God knows what dwells in the darkness and that is why He warns us not to go poking around in it apart from His explicit given direction, because He knows that we have no spiritual protection there without Him. Do you know why people go ghost-hunting and on ghost- walks at night? It's because dark spirits are more active in the dark. Ghost's will be able to manifest during the day as much as the night, but demons hate the light and mainly only operate in the night. A demon's main goal and desire is to trick us into believing that it's a ghost so that we will give it permision to come in. Then it can gradually possess us. DT 18:10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who 11 practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who 12 is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. Another thing you have to ask yourself is, how much can you communicate with a spirit and not be crossing God's spiritual safety boundaries? God says in the above scripture that people who practice the occult are detestable to Him. If God led you to go on a ghost-hunt or ghost-walk in order to do His will, then that would be fine; otherwise we need to stay far away from doing these things or our activity can act as a volition of will for evil to come and take over. We must walk in God's light and only go into the darkness in order to bring His light there, anything beyond this is spiritually illegal activity and should be strongly avoided. 1JN 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. A Warning to the Curious by Lonnie Mackley 2CO 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? I want to talk to all of you who consider yourself to be a Christian and who are also called to help people to get free from demons and hauntings. I just want to caution you that in your research and work for God to be very careful about not being pulled too far into darkness as you help others get free of it. Like the saying goes, "we are what we eat", and when we feed on more darkness than light we can become defiled and full of more darkness than the light. Things like watching too many paranormal shows, reading too many haunting type study books, or being exposed to the latest occult themed movies and video games can all act as a beacon for demons and give them permission to come into our homes and harass us, (or worse). Many hauntings have started with someone becoming a little too curious about the spirit-realm and before you know it after viewing all the ghost shows, they actually get one. DT 18:10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. A Christian has no business being part of a secular ghost-hunting team, or joining in on a seance' or all night vigil, but yet this is what takes place on many so called ghost-hunting investigations. God doesn't want us trying to contact the dead or prove there is an afterlife, He wants us to tell people that there is life through the Light of His son Jesus Christ. If God calls you to fight the darkness He will not expect you to join the darkness in order to do it. If you are called to battle spiritual darkness, then your weapons will always be God's light and the spiritual armor that it talks about in Ephesians 6 below. The only thing that drives demons away is the authority and light of Jesus Christ, so we must fill ourselves up on Him every day in order to be able to stay strong. So if you are spiritually curious then satisfy that curiosity with reading the bible, praying to God, worshiping Jesus, and walking in His Light. EPH 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Check here for important news, mini-teachings, blog style exhortations, and words of encouragement.

Watching too many occult shows and movies, playing occult games, reading occult books, and listening to certain music can be like opening the door to your house and telling all of the criminals in town to come on in and have at it. Also, taking certain drugs like narcotics can open you up to the spirit-realm and allow unwelcome visitors to walk into the open door of your soul and to begin taking you or your family over. So if you want to get the devil out of your house then you need to get him out of your life first. Decide today to divorce the devil once and for all and turn to God with all of your heart. Just like physical food we are what we eat spiritually. Lonnie JAS 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Tuesday, July 20th, 2010 Empowerment Is Coming Soon we are going to see a mass empowerment of people on the earth by God and the devil at the same time, and this is meant to draw people all the way either into God's kingdom or into the devil's kingdom. When this happens satan is going to be offering power to anyone who wants it, but this gift comes at a terrible price; your soul and everything else good in your life. So if you hear about some promise of a healing or special power apart from the power and authority of Jesus Christ then don't be fooled or take the bait, or it could cost you your everything for eternity. If you have already fallen into this trap of darkness then there is a way out if you will cry out to Jesus Christ for help. If you really mean business with Jesus and you are willing to repent of your works of darkness then He can and will set you free of it for good. AC 26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.' Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 The Tripod changeover will take place Sept. 9th so after that I will not be able to update this website anymore unless you support it financially. So if you see no more updates that is the reason why. But know this, God is with anyone who means business with Him and who seeks after Him with all of their hearts so go to God directly and He will help you. Lonnie ISA 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
