Ghosts Are Not Real.

Updated on November 6, 2012

Demons Are Real.

If it is the spirit of a person who has died then there is no such thing as a ghost. It is a spirit, who has come from Heaven of Hell. However, most people believe that ghosts are people who have died. So ghosts, or people who have died do not exist.

There are no ghosts of humans, because as it says in the bible when we die Ecclesiastes 9: 5-6 But as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all. Also, their love and hate, jealousy, and anger have already perished,

In the bible we are to told that when people die, they go to sleep Job 14: 12 Man lies down and does not get up. Until heaven is no more, they will not wake up, nor will they be aroused from their sleep.

When people die, they are buried in the ground and they are simply sleeping. They have no dreams, no nightmares. They are simply in the ground.

When it comes to Spirits, it is very different. Spirits do exists. They can be Angels sent by God or they can be Demons who have serve Satan. Those demons come from hell, and they may look like someone, who died but they are lie. Satan and his followers, are evil and want nothing more than to harm as many people as possible.

The closest thing to a ghost haunting in the bible is in Mark 5: 1-20 Demons possessed this man, and he 'haunted' a graveyard. No one could catch him, stop him, or do anything to keep this from happening. This man was possessed by a large number of demons. Jesus was able to caste them out. Jesus, while casting them out, asked their name, and while their were leaving they cried out " Legion because there are so many of us" Then Jesus sent the legion of demons into two thousand swine and then sent the two thousand swine into the sea, and let them drown.

In this day and age, there are many people who have seen ghosts, there are people who talk to the dead, people who hunt ghosts, videos on the internet proving ghosts exist. But, what is happening? The world seems to be connect more and more with spirits, but which spirits are we connecting with?

The demons, the world is connecting with the demons. The world is experiencing more anger, riots, war, and worst of all the New World Order.

      Hallucination makes people see many things including Aliens and ghosts. No such things exist. But would be glad if anyone has any prove to share.

      Legion was just insane. The bible intinates this by saying "he was in his right mind" after Jesus cured him. Demonic possession is just medical ignorance. The bible says the dead know nothing so how can they return from either heaven or hell? Since there is no hell, that's is out of the question and your hub sinks toward the bottom of the ocean.

      There are no spiritual entities except for angels and your hub resurfaces lol.

      my_girl_sara you are so correct! There is a lot of this going on.

      And now there is even a show about the Zombie Apocalypse. The media is having a field day. I wonder what is going to happen next.

      Nice hub, Michele! I myself have been researching this whole ghost/spirit/demon thing for a while and agree with you. I like the Ecclesiastes verse. It's one I hadn't read before. The thing that worries me is that people have turned ghost hunting into a religious experience. There's a TV show that documents the reality that spirits DO exist. It's on the Travel Channel and it's called Ghost Adventures. They are crazy and amazing. I can only imagine the evil spirits that taunt them when they get home.

      Michele, Thank you for your posting this. This is an interesting hub. I do not believe in Ghosts, but have heard thing as expressed in my hub on Paranormal activity. I do believe there are Angeles and Demons.

      I will read the Bible verses you have mentioned.

      Thank you very much for your comment epigramman. I do have to admit I don't know everything, so it is possible you did have a visit from your mum.

      Good wishes to you also.

      Thank you Michele for your interesting points of view. I can see that you have done your research and your subject here is very compelling and well thought out.

      I live in a family cottage where only three people have evere lived for over 56 years - my mum and dad and myself.

      It was just a summer cottage all of these years but I moved into it 8 years ago to live. (with my cats)

      My mum died in 2004 and my dad in 1992.

      In the last 2 years I believe that I have received at least 6 visits from my mum who has moved things around.

      Sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 1:22pm

      I like your article here it points out some interesting things about Ghost being real or not, and the whole spirit world thing.

      I no longer give any fuel or energy to the NWO propaganda or rhetoric , I use to allow the thought of it all to worry me, but as the years blew by I grew out of getting troubled by it.

      Spirits do indeed exist in my honest and humble opinion, and I can feel such a thing flowing through me keeping me going in life, however I never ever seen a ghost and so your conclusions here may be correct, but who knows right!

      Cool hub overall Michele, and thumbs up.

      liftandsoar that depends on the comment. This had been argued upon over and over. Did Jesus let him know the truth today, on the day that he was on the cross. Or did Jesus tell him that he would be in Paradise today?

      There are many other verses in the bible that tell us people will not be in Heaven or in Paradise.

      Job 14:12) So man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake Nor be roused from their sleep.

      In Acts 2:29-35 it says that David is dead and is NOT in heaven.. we all feel or assume that King David will be in heaven, so why is he not there yet?

      (Job 14:12) So man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake Nor be roused from their sleep.

      (Job 21:32) Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.

      Since man stays in the grave until the resurrection, then demons are pretending to be ghosts. Satan lies to people all the time. Satan only blinds people.

      Now the problem with "Absent from the body, present with the Lord" is that Paul was writing about what would happen to a person who was good and faithful to God. But, he did not say "Right Now"

      Interesting post Michele, but I beg to differ with you on the dead being asleep, ie soul-sleep. I think you've interpreted the verses you quote without considering other biblical evidence. If the soul sleeps, how would the repentant thief on the cross see the Lord that very day. Did not Paul write, "Absent from the body, present with the Lord."? I think he meant a conscious presence.

      Thank you Larry,

      God does send His Angels to protect us, God helps us heal. I believe when people think they see ghosts, they are not really seeing ghosts.

      Thank you so much for your comment.

      You presented an excellent explanation about ghosts vs. spirits. I have never seen a ghost and never will, because as you said, they do not exist. I do believe I have been touched spirits of angels working through nurses, friends and others for maybe a moment or longer to help me through difficult times. Excellent hub.

      graceinus, God may have given them to Jesus. God has given animals to people before. An animal was given to Abraham so that he could sacrifice the lamb instead of sacrificing his son. The pigs were just grazing. Also, when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, God gave him a lamb so he could sacrifice the lamb instead of his son.

      The Bible doesn’t explain to us Jesus’ reasoning, but displaying His sov power over demons could be one reason why Jesus sent them into the pigs. If the pigs’ owners were Jews, Jesus could have been punishisihf them for not obeying Jewish law which forbids Jews from eating or keeping unclean animals such as pigs (Leviticus 11:7). If the pigs were Gentiles, perhaps Jesus was using this event to show them the malice of evil spirits under whose influence they lived, as well as displaying His power and authority over creation. In any case, the owners were so terrified to be in the presence of such spiritual power that they made no demand for restitution for the loss of their property and begged Jesus to leave the region.

      teaches thank you so much for your comment. The more I read the bible, the more I believe in what is written in it, and the less I believe in ghost stories, even ones on the internet.
