    I see Elvis in all his glory dressed in white Heavenly robes.
    Photograph taken at Graceland Mansion a couple of years ago -
    near his horses grazing in the background.  When this photo
    was developed from a disposable camera - I immediately saw
    Elvis or the Ghost of Elvis Presley.
    I really didn't know how to take this finding - what did it mean?
    Some have said they did not see Elvis but only a sunlight haze in
    that place.  Others just looked and said nothing and handed the
    photo back to me.   Mostly the gist is that - yes - Elvis is at Graceland -
    his Spirit lives - see!  There are hundreds maybe more of Elvis Impersonators
    and Tribute Entertainers throughout the world - HE is with us - and
    we won't let go.  Thank God for Big Favors.

      Sorry, but I've seen similar photos........"doves" over a pulpit that were actually just some kind of glare from the camera or from lights in the church,  etc..........
      And while I'm not saying it couldn't be real,  I'm more inclined to think your photo is just that---a glare.

      By the way,  why does your title say "the Holy Ghost of Elvis Presley"?
      I think that's a bit of a stretch!  LOL.  And seriously even worse......
      And although he may very well be in heaven (I hope he is!),  and might therefore be "holy" via having been accepted into heaven because of CHRIST's Holiness,   I think.......Elvis himself would've been the first to tell you to not refer to him as holy, as though he were some kind of god or something.    I think he would've told you that God is the only One who's Holy.    Just like he told fans at this concert who called him "King" that Jesus is the only real King.

      By the way again,  there's a term "Love covereth a multitude of sins".   It's from the Holy Bible.   And ultimately I believe that refers to Jesus, whose Love which allowed Him to die for mankind's sins certainly does cover a multitude of sins!

        She said his flowing robes covered a multitude of sins not LOVE as in an A Line dress covers large hips.  I am personally at the end of this Forum - I offered a photo for discussion and now I am sorry I did that.  It seems it is a joke that I see Elvis in the light haze on an outdoor photo taken on Graceland Mansion grounds - if you cannot see him - all well and good.  I see Him - maybe in his jumpsuit with the cape over his back appearing as a robe.  I am not preaching the Holy Bible - I am only an ordinary person and not involved in the ministry.  I gave my own thoughts of what I see Elvis as and was - a Holy Man living in the fast world of Super Stardom of the 50's - 70's.  He was a great contribution to the world and to Christian Gospel whether you loved him or not - accepted him or not - we still have Him with us 36 years later and onward.  If he was Jesus Christ in the flesh - there is a life-size statue of Jesus Christ in the his backyard that says PRESLEY with his arms outstretched.  That would be a stretch to say that but some people believe that could be a possibility.  I don't know if Elvis would want to hear that he was holy or not but I do not believe he would not want to hear the opposite said about him either.  Thanks for offering your view.

          Elvis was just a man, a talented man,  who was as flawed as the rest of us and died due to overuse of drugs.

          While it's clear you are enamored with Elvis, as many are, one must remember to acknowledge his private life as well as his stage persona and take everything into consideration. Holy men do not usually behave as he did.

            This could be most definately very true but yet again how bad was he anyway?  How does a super-star rock-n-roll idol supposed to act even if he was holy?  As it is written, Jesus Christ was the Apostle of all Apostles.
            Maybe it was more of an act in many ways that Elvis lived sometimes wild fun with motorcycles, a pet monkey Scatter,and a few girlfriends.  He made all PG movies, was a great father and devoted husband, he kept to himself with a group of men who took care of his needs . How bad was he?  A Gospel singer, a legendary performer - where people from all over the world came to see him, a Vegas act that gave us a fantastic theme song, he had a black belt in Karate and yes, he was very materialistic.  Naughty.

              A devoted husband? A black Belt? I loved Elvis as well and loved all his movies. If there is such a thing as a male crush I had one for Elvis, he was simply beautiful to look at and listen to, but lets not make a God out of him. He was a pill popper who died on the crapper. Move on.

                Yes - I agree - let's move on.  Elvis died with 40 lbs. of feces blocked in his colon.  One may close or delete a Question but with Forum issues you are stuck.  This is going on and on - with no direction.  Everyone has their own ideas - sorry mine do not agree with yours.

              Yes, it is obvious you either know very little of his private life or refuse to acknowledge it.

              "Twice during the year  he overdosed on barbiturates, spending three days in a coma in his hotel suite after the first incident. Toward the end of 1973, he was hospitalized, semi-comatose from the effects of Demerol addiction. According to his main physician, Dr. George C. Nichopoulos, Presley "felt that by getting [drugs] from a doctor, he wasn't the common everyday junkie getting something off the street."

              "Guitarist John Wilkinson recalled, "He was all gut. He was slurring. He was so fucked up. ... It was obvious he was drugged. It was obvious there was something terribly wrong with his body. It was so bad the words to the songs were barely intelligible. ... I remember crying."

              Do we need to be reminded he fell for a 14 year old girl, kept her while having multiple affairs with other women? He eventually had another girl move in with him before he filed for divorce with Priscilla.

              FAR from holy.

                  Allow me to explain yet again. Hopefully, you'll get it this time.

                  No, I don't give any esteem to the word 'holy' when it's brandished on a person.

                  You see, it's like talking to little children who hold beliefs in Santa Claus, for example, you can talk about Rudolf and his red nose, going down chimneys to deliver toys across the planet and so forth... all the while knowing you are talking to little children who hold childish beliefs.

                  Does that help your confusion? smile

      Most likely a double exposure. You take a picture of something behind glass and the take another, but if the film doesn't wind you expose the same piece of film to another image so you end up getting a statue of Christ in a cloud or some such thing.

    I have to ask, if that were a picture of a garden in London, would you still see Elvis in it?  Because I see some fog, steam, smoke or light reflection on a dirty lens.

            Elvis put on quite a bit of weight there at the end and flowing robes hide a multitude of sins.

              Deb Welchposted 3 years ago in reply to this

              I agree a robe could hide fat - rolls of fat and blubber - does that in itself constitute sin?  What were his multitude of sins?  I never knew him personally - never met him and never had seen him in concert..  I have read about him,I listen to him sing so sweetly from rock-n-roll,country,gospel,easy listening and ballad love songs, I have read many books about his life, magazine articles, I visit his website www.elvis.com  and love it and have seen practically all of his movies plus many Elvis videos.  Maybe the abundance of weight at the end of his life was the work of others around him daily that caused stress,pill popping,and bad health issues.

                It's a figure of speech...

                It's used to describe clothing that hides physical imperfections.

                For example, you hear about A-line dresses hiding a multitude of sins (heavy thighs, thick hips etc.) that kind of thing.

      Yes - I am a devoted love of Elvis Presley since 10 yrs old.  I went to Graceland Mansion on a Greyhound Bus from Nashville - 2011 by myself.
      I took the VIP Tour and saw everything.  I was thrilled that they were allowing his horses to be on the grounds while tours are on-going and made sure I took a photo of them.  I saw the image of Elvis right away - his hair - a robe with flowing sleeves after developing the camera.  This photo is a treasure to me - it is too bad no one yet can see him in that ray of lightl.

      Eh........me personally....I wasn't trying to "pick" on anybody.
      But when someone calls someone other than the Holy Ghost the "Holy Ghost" (in caps, no less),  it lends itself to explanation.   And I'd say that posting this thread, like any thread, was an invitation to some feedback from people, wouldn't you say?

        Not every post is an invitation to debate. I think God forgives a whole lot more than we forgive others.
        This verse reminds me of that.

        "How can you think of saying, 'Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye." Lk 6:42

          I was serious when I said I think Elvis himself would be displeased at his spirit being called the "Holy Ghost".   Evidence from his own words bears that out as truth.    He had a highly Spiritual background and loved Gospel music.   I think he struggled with right and wrong like everyone else does,  and that his fame was a huge temptation that eventually stood in his way of fully using his great talent for the Lord's glory.   But very understandable.   I really admired Elvis too.  But we're all human.  It's an exhortation, not a condemnation of the thread-maker here.  So your quote is misdirected.   I believe Elvis loved the Lord!  Amen to it.      His (Elvis's) words remind me of a Scripture verse too.   "Thou shalt have no other gods before me".

              Agreed.
              And how do we grow spiritually or Spiritually?
              By learning the facts.  By being exhorted to truth.  By being given examples like the video of Elvis saying he considered Jesus the King.  By comparing with the Word of God the things that are in question.
              If not now, then when would be the time to do so?   Now was the time, just like "today" is the day of salvation.   It's best not to wait.

    This is love.

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a 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.

    13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

      Brenda Durhamposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Again,  telling someone the truth is a part of Love.
      I think you're confusing that with ignoring the truth.
      Do you have any idea how many false religions and cults and hero-worshipping clubs have been formed and grew simply because people weren't informed of the truth?    Any idea why Darwin is now the "god of science" to so many people when in fact he himself never said (that I can find) that his theory was solid science?    People follow something or someone because they don't take the time to find out the truth for themselves, or else they're not exposed to the truth by someone else because that person doesn't care enough to take the time to tell them the truth from the onset, leaving them to go for years and years following a misconception.
