Photographs are easily edited and manipulated, but take a gander at these stories and decide for yourself. Are they real?

The Collinwood Fire
This is the last known photo taken inside the Lake View School in Collinwood, Ohio before it was consumed by fire on March 4, 1908, killing 172 students, two teachers, and one rescuer. The fire started when a ceiling joist ignited from a nearby steam pipe. Flames blocked escape routes, leading to panic and a stampede that trapped a large number of victims in a stairwell, where they were cooked alive. Additional casualties were incurred when burning students jumped from second- and third-story windows. Everyone in this photo perished, except for Mr. Olson, seated at the far right in the back row. The spectral artifacts in the photo remained unexplained.

Charlie Noonan’s Last Interview
Charlie Noonan was an amateur folklorist who traveled throughout the South and Southwestern United States during the early years of the 20th century, collecting tall tales and stories of the supernatural. According to his wife, Ellie, Charlie was told a story one day by an Oklahoma farmer about a strange woman who lived alone on an isolated property in the panhandle. The farmer claimed the woman was not a woman at all, but something else, something that hid its true nature beneath a headscarf and was never seen without a large dog by its side. Noonan was apparently intrigued enough to try searching for the woman during one of his research road trips. He was never seen again.
Ellie Noonan was later contacted by a Tulsa pawnbroker who remembered reading about her husband’s disappearance in the papers, after finding his name engraved on a camera sold to him by an itinerant. The pawnbroker returned the camera, and Mrs. Noonan had the film inside developed in the hopes of finding a clue as to his whereabouts. This was the only photo on the roll. Unfortunately, neither the location of the property, nor the name of the farmer who told him the story was recorded in Noonan’s notes.

The Death of John Ulsted
This prophetically torn photograph depicts a regimental color guard of the Union Army, one month before they marched into battle at Antietam (September, 1862). The gentleman on the far right, named John Ulsted, had the right side his face and right arm blown off by canon fire at the start of those hostilities. It is unknown exactly when the damage to the photo occurred.

The Axeman of New Orleans
Édouard Martel was an unsuccessful French photographer and inventor who traveled throughout the U.S. during the first two decades of the 20th century, trying to drum up interest and investors for a device that added timer and automatic exposure features to Kodak’s popular line of folding “Brownie” cameras. During his travels he took thousands of automated photos to test and refine his invention. Often he would wake up early, set up a hidden camera in an inconspicuous spot on the streets of whatever city he happened to be in, and then walk to a nearby café or bar, so that he could capture candid scenes of daily life to remember his travels by. The best of these photos were selected for Martel’s one and only gallery show, in Paris, 1924.
Unfortunately, Martel died penniless and unknown in 1955, and it was left to his daughter Jeanne to sort through the boxes and boxes of photos he left behind, to see what should be kept and what could be discarded. During this process she came across this photo, taken in New Orleans on the morning of October 28, 1919, a few hours before Martel boarded a steamer ship and returned to France. It turns out that Martel hated motion blurs in his photographs, because he thought they would reflect badly on the speed and accuracy of his lens mechanism. This prejudice made him cast aside and overlook what was probably the most important photo he ever took.
What makes this photo so special? The night before it was taken, the notorious and still unidentified serial killer known only as “The Axeman of New Orleans” had committed his last murder, hacking Mike Pepitone to death in his bedroom and then fleeing the scene just as Pepitone’s wife was discovering the body. Could this be him returning to his residence? It’s impossible to say, but if it is, the image appears to belie the legend (based on the shaky testimony of Pauline and Mary Bruno, and prevailing prejudice of the time) that only a black man was capable of such savagery.

A letter sent by the axeman to N.O. police.

Hell, March 13, 1919
Esteemed Mortal:
They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell. I am what you Orleanians and your foolish police call the Axeman.
When I see fit, I shall come and claim other victims. I alone know whom they shall be. I shall leave no clue except my bloody axe, besmeared with blood and brains of he whom I have sent below to keep me company.
If you wish you may tell the police to be careful not to rile me. Of course, I am a reasonable spirit. I take no offense at the way they have conducted their investigations in the past. In fact, they have been so utterly stupid as to not only amuse me, but His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc. But tell them to beware. Let them not try to discover what I am, for it were better that they were never born than to incur the wrath of the Axeman. I don‘t think there is any need of such a warning, for I feel sure the police will always dodge me, as they have in the past. They are wise and know how to keep away from all harm.
Undoubtedly, you Orleanians think of me as a most horrible murderer, which I am, but I could be much worse if I wanted to. If I wished, I could pay a visit to your city every night. At will I could slay thousands of your best citizens, for I am in close relationship with the Angel of Death.
Now, to be exact, at 12:15 (earthly time) on next Tuesday night, I am going to pass over New Orleans. In my infinite mercy, I am going to make a little proposition to you people. Here it is:
I am very fond of jazz music, and I swear by all the devils in the nether regions that every person shall be spared in whose home a jazz band is in full swing at the time I have just mentioned. If everyone has a jazz band going, well, then, so much the better for you people. One thing is certain and that is that some of your people who do not jazz it on Tuesday night (if there be any) will get the axe.
Well, as I am cold and crave the warmth of my native Tartarus, and it is about time I leave your earthly home, I will cease my discourse. Hoping that thou wilt publish this, that it may go well with thee, I have been, am and will be the worst spirit that ever existed either in fact or realm of fancy.

The Grand Caverns Cryptids
This photo was taken in 1895 by an amateur spelunker/photographer named Oren Jeffries while exploring an unmapped section of Grand Caverns, in Southwestern Virginia.
At the time it was taken, Jeffries was conducting photographic experiments, using super long exposures to see if anything at all could be captured in the total absence of light—otherwise known as “cave darkness.” He would situate himself on level ground, extinguish his lantern, and then open the lens of his homemade box camera for as long as he could stand the darkness.
During one of these experiments, he heard something approach from the deeper recesses of the cave. Frightened, Jeffries abandoned his experiment and set off one of the Blitzlicht flashes he used for taking traditional photos underground.

The Harlow Twins
1938, Evergreen Park, IL (outside Chicago). Billy and Stevie Harlow were riding in the front seat with their mother Tammie when their Ford sedan collided head on with a Chrysler. During the collision, the cars spun in such as a way as to impact two additional vehicles. Tammy Harlow survived but the boys were ejected through the windshield and killed instantly. A crime scene photographer from the local paper took this shot as a crew of volunteers worked frantically to free John Downing, the driver of the Chrysler. It appears that little Billy and Stevie stuck around to watch.

The Sorrenson Tragedy
The Sorrenson’s were a Danish family who immigrated to the United States sometime between 1905 and 1906. They arrived with their eldest child, Anders (seen on the donkey), and settled on a farmstead in Missouri. Three more children—Simone, Frikke, and Mathilde (center, right, and in the wagon, respectively)—soon followed. This photo, taken in 1916, captures all four of the children a few weeks before the tragedy. The three eldest kids were apparently playing fort in the hay barn and must have fallen asleep. Their father, Niclas, drove a wooden haysweep into the pile and dismembered all three, in locations accurately suggested by the flaw in the photo. Mathilde, the youngest, was inside the house with her mother at the time and not hurt. According to the son of a neighbor later interviewed by the author, the donkey later died in equally hideous fashion by getting its head caught in a barbwire fence and nearly decapitating itself in the frenzy to get free. This final detail could not be corroborated.

The Stevenson Family Portrait
Who says ghosts don’t have a sense of humor? The Stevenson’s were a wealthy Boston family, proud of the industry and longevity with which most the clan was blessed. This portrait, taken in 1945, was an effort to gather the oldest Stevenson’s, together with one of the youngest. Emelia (center), aged 102, was granted the honor of “Matriarch,” while little Ophelia was the token child at eighteen months. What the Stevenson’s did not realize until this photo was developed was that they had been joined that day by one of their deceased. James Pullman Stevenson (1835-1932), seated at left between his niece Ginny and his cousin Alfred, was easily identified by several of those present, and remembered fondly as a rascally uncle known for pranks and dirty jokes.

The Specter of Viola Peters
Viola Peters was a wellborn spinster who lived alone in the small rural town of McCaysville, Georgia. She was much loved in her community for her charitable contributions to the Baptist church, the soup kitchen, and the local orphanage, especially during the depression, when those institutions subsisted almost entirely on her largesse. In July of 1935, Viola was brutally raped and murdered by a drifter named Tom Cullin, who had worked briefly at the nearby copper refinery. Cullin proceeded to stay on in Viola’s house and savage her corpse for an additional seventeen days before he was caught and captured. A posse of enraged locals stormed the county jail, took Cullin, and lynched him from the old bridge over the Toccoa River.
This photo was taken by Garrett Killian, a witness to the lynching, and caused quite a stir when it was published a few days later in The Atlanta Constitution. To most, it suggested that Viola’s spirit achieved some measure of peace by attending her killer’s execution, but some twisted minds saw in her forlorn countenance a longing to get one last look at her one and only lover.

The Ghost of Sarah Eustace
Danvers State Hospital (formerly Danvers State Lunatic Asylum) was a Kirkbride-style psychiatric hospital built in 1874 on what was then an isolated site in rural Massachusetts. Like all Kirkbridge asylums, it was famous for its gothic architecture and its use of now outdated medical techniques to treat insanity. Danvers is often cited as the birthplace of the pre-frontal lobotomy.
Danvers has several other claims to fame. It was the inspiration for the fictional “Arkham Sanatorium” that appeared in several stories by H.P. Lovecraft and which, in turn, inspired the “Arkham Asylum” in the fictional Batman universe. It was also where the cult horror film Session 9 was filmed.
That film put the vast network of tunnels beneath Danvers to good cinematic effect. It’s no accident the filmmakers chose to use the tunnels, as rumors of their haunting had dogged Danvers for over a hundred years. The most famous story concerns Sarah Eustace, a patient who escaped her ward in 1955 and snuck into the tunnel system. Despite multiple searches, and a week-long lockdown of the asylum, Sarah was never seen again. It was assumed she died down there, lost, thirsty, and alone.
A nurse at Danvers named Gail Malloy became obsessed with Sarah’s story and spent many of her off hours searching the tunnels for her remains. Though she never found a body, she did snap this photo in late 1966, which suggests Sarah Eustace walks the Danvers tunnels to this very day.

The Disappearances of Mrs. Yurno
During her later years, Josephine Yurno would take a walk every evening at dusk around her beloved neighborhood in Norwich, Connecticut. On November 12, 1935, she set out as usual and never returned. Extensive searches were conducted by a large team of volunteers and the Norwich police force but no sign of her was ever found.
Three years later, Mrs. Yurno was found in front of a neighbor’s house, without a mark on her body and in perfect health. When asked where she had been, Mrs. Yurno was unable to understand the question. From her point of view, no time had passed at all.
Against the advice of her neighbors and her doctor, she refused all medical treatment and resumed her life as if nothing had ever happened, including her nightly walks. Another neighbor snapped this shot of her in the fall of 1938. Clouds of smoke from piles of burning leaves give it an appropriately eerie feel.
On the same date in November, 1940, five years after her initial disappearance, Mrs. Yurno vanished again. This time she was never seen again.

The Fate of Sally York
The 1912 threshing of little Sally York, aged 9, in the cotton loom of the North Fork Textile Mill was one of a handful of such accidents that helped legislators push through the Keating-Owning Act of 1916 (the first child-labor law in American history).
From the time of the accident until the mill’s closing four decades later, workers consistently complained of cold spots, strange noises, and sudden taps on the shoulder when nobody was near.
The mill’s foremen never paid these complaints any mind until this photograph surfaced in 1932. It was taken by a traveling photographer named Benny Johnson, who promptly sold it to the North Fork Gazette for an unprecedented ten dollars. The mill had shut down for the Christmas holidays and was empty at the time. The photo was later blamed for the closing of the mill though the Great Depression was the more likely cause of that.

Lily Palmer’s Eyes
Lily Palmer was not quite 4 when she experienced what her doctors would later call an “acute onset of sensory hallucinations.” This photo, taken by Lily’s mother Annette on Halloween night, 1952, purportedly captures the arrival of her disorder. Lily and her Filipino nanny were setting out for a round of trick or treating when the child suddenly screamed and began to claw at her eyes. It was some time before she was calm enough to speak, but when asked what she saw, Lily repeatedly spoke about “things crawling in her eyes.”
Several days later, while unsupervised in her bedroom, Lily punctured both of her eyes with one of her mother’s knitting needles.
After receiving medical treatment, she was evaluated and committed, and remained institutionalized for the rest of her life, first at Bellevue (on the East Side of Manhattan), and later at the Rockland Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg, where she remained until she died of heart attack in March of 2001. A call to one of her former caregivers at Rockland confirmed that Lily’s episodes were most traumatic on and around Halloween night, but for the majority of her life she could be heard begging and pleading with the staff to help her “get these things out of her eyes.”

The Trinity Deception
This is one of several famous photographs taken of the first ever nuclear detonation. Conducted by the U.S. Army on July 16, 1945, in the White Sands Proving Ground (located in the Jornada del Muerto desert, about 35 miles southeast of Socorro, New Mexico), the setting off of this “implosion-design plutonium device” (the same method used in the “Fat Man” device dropped on Nagasaki) ushered in the Atomic Age and the eventual arms race between the United States and Russia.
Only a handful of people were aware that this photo was cropped before it was ever released to the public and they are all now dead. One of them was the original photographer, who gave the author a copy of the original on the condition that it be kept out of the public eye until such a time that the citizens of the world could handle the ramifications of what it depicts. The author remains uncertain whether this criteria has been met, but given that he likely owns the last extant copy, he has decided his responsibility rests with the truth.

CONCLUSION

We are a spiritual being in a physical world meant to discern the evil from the good. GOD gave us Jesus Christ for the Salvation of our souls, and the dark side will do whatever it takes to confuse us to scalp our soul. Don’t let that happen to you. Whenever you feel like you are being attacked….use Jesus Christ’s Name! IT WORKS! HIS power overcomes all negative influences. BELIEVE!

Untitled

PRUNING
Pruning-When GOD prunes, it’s because it becomes necessary for one’s growth. Growth is part of spiritual warfare, but more importantly it’s part of your relationship with GOD.
Pruning hurts! It’s likened to a bush. You must ‘clip’ off parts to let ‘new’ growth take place.

images

Remember, GOD took Noah out of the population to place him in an ark. This ark was to save the ‘pure’ generation from which Jesus Christ would be born. It had to be pure! Why wasn’t it? The fallen angels came and mated with mankind to produce what the Bible called Nephilim. Hybrids. These bloodlines tainted the core bloodlines of the earth, and more importantly the bloodlines which Jesus was to be originate. In order to bring humanity back from chaos, and purify this bloodline once again, Noah has to be segregated and the Great Deluge was to happen. Noah had to be placed in the ark for this was a relationship at the heart of GOD. A covenant, if you will.

So, GOD pruned mankind to let it grow once again. This was a satanic attachment on mankind, and attack on GOD’S people from Satan and his fallen ones. But, GOD gives us a script to live by as an example of what it once was, and will be. GOD purged the spirits from mankind.

Sabriel_and_the_Mordicant_by_lokelani

The Nephilim are dead spirits. They were a leprosy on mankind. This was the first example of spiritual warfare! But why? Because there were not totally purged from the earth. Why, you ask? If GOD is ALL-Powerful, then why not finish it! Because GOD uses this as a Free Will test, even for the angels. We are all given free will, even the angels and demons.
Reasons to prune? To remove the ‘dead’ parts, shaping…thereby controlling, and/or redirecting the growth, improving or maintaining growth and health, reducing the risk of falling ‘branches’. Make sense? A metaphor, per say. Thereby yielding produce of the fruit, but also the quality. The process and practice targets, the removal of the diseased, damaged, and ‘dead’, non-productive, structurally unsound, or otherwise unwanted ’tissue’.

20130205-152250

PURGING
To remove impurities; purify. To rid of sin, guilt, or defilement. An act of removing by cleansing; ridding of sediment or otherwise undesired elements. Some refer to this as a ‘purgatorial rite’. This in an essence seems to produce a binding and loosing effect, that would ‘cleanse’ the sin from the soul/spirit.
Anyone can bind evil, as long as they have Jesus Christ in their heart and soul. Jesus Christ tells us we all have the authority to do it. But it only works in His Name!

do-not-conformtitle

In Matthew 12:29, He tells us we must first bind the “strongman” before we can plunder his house. Then, we can loose…clarifying: the binding “forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful”.
So, this means you must first find out what legal holds Satan has on your life, and your family’s life. What legal rights do the demons hold over you? This can pertain to witchcraft practiced in the family generations ago but it remains a factor today! Affecting you and your loved one’s to the point of even death. This can also be past activity in the occult; from visiting a medium, or even practicing astrology and horoscopes.

***NOTE***
The spirits have specific functions they perform and names they go by. Ex: lust, adultery, pride, strife, discouragement, idolatry, homosexuality, shame, hate, envy, obsession, suicide, and literally thousands of others. You don’t have to be involved in the occult to give the demons permission to enter your life, body, and soul.
One must remember even purging bad habits, and other avenues must be performed to rid us of dealing with bad spirits. When you give these demons legal rights to enter your thought processes, they can cause chaos. Also, remember even when your being the ‘best’ you can be, demons can enter your thoughts and try to cause problems. This is why the Armor of GOD is so important. They test us, especially if we’re a child of GOD!

Purge your conscience, let GOD purge your conscience of the dead works so you can serve HIM.
As gross as it may sound, purging like vomiting is an involuntary spasm movement to eject from the body unclean things.
If your reading this today, the GOD wants to take you higher in Him, and closer to His Heart. But you cannot obtain this with ‘dead weight’ attached.
There are NO coincidences in life. Everything has a purpose.
Hebrew 12:1
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

cropped-img_27182

REASONS
Purging and pruning is a process which GOD practices to utilize your life for Him, to take out anything that is not like His Son.
It can be an emotional process, sometimes with immense pressure. This is not easy but it must be done.

BLOOD
I tell people all the time, this war is about BLOOD! Sounds gross, right? It comes down to blood because ultimately Jesus Christ gave us many things through the process of shedding His Blood. But aside from this, we have the opposite. Satan is all about the opposite!
Demons use blood for many things. They taught mankind the art of war, which releases blood. They taught mankind the process of cannibalism, which has sadly made a comeback in the last few years. This process is part of the rituals which the fallen angels taught man thousands of years ago to produce increased power. Nations/people divided cannot conquer, but only fail. Same with GOD’S people! Satan uses us against one another to cause strife and war, but you can bet your bottom dollar demons are involved!

Screen-Shot-2012-09-10-at-11.31.45-AM

We are noticing an exponential increase of demonic influences on man, but recently it’s producing itself as ‘hauntings’ and such. Although there is NO such thing as ‘ghosts’, the evil spirits have worked very hard to convince man these ‘ghost’s exist.
Seems the natural world can’t get enough of the supernatural right now. First of all, this is because our spirit is trying to communicate to us that we are coming close to the end of this world, and it’s a supernatural war at hand. We are infested with movies, programs on television, and even in books that project the war we are in. Now, they plots usually don’t portray the truth! You know….the good is bad and the bad is good. Even with the increase curiosity in the paranormal many people are still skeptical, but demons don’t care if you believe or not,…in fact they’d rather you didn’t. It helps their plans.

transform1-608x456

Every believer or non-believer is engaged, either knowingly or unknowingly; in direct conflict with Satan and his demons. This is the whole point of Ephesians!
Why? Well, it boils down to communication. Communicating with the dead is strictly prohibited in the Bible. The demons know the Bible better than you or I. They know the consequences of such actions. When a person dies, his soul/spirit moved onto the next dimension immediately. There’s no delay or residual effects. And we cannot return without GOD’S permission and this RARELY happens and when it does it’s with HIS purpose. When we communicate with the ‘dead’ (demons), we are only increasing the quantity of demons performing evil acts. We must also remind ourselves that negative events and activities only increase the activity.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD!
Their agenda? Blood/Souls. The bloodlines of generations past and their origins are for a purpose in GOD’S Plan. It’s like a puzzle. Stan uses bloodlines to curse man. Man against man. Spirit against spirit. Where do you think the New World Order originates? Well, it’s not man-made! It originates with fallen angels.
Demons will answer for their actions, just as we will. All actions cause a reaction. GOD’S Natural Law. GOD’S Law was first, and will be last! The Alpha & Omega.

SPLENDOR OF THE THORNS
The thorn, you say? Can you imagine the florist offering a bouquet of thorns? Few find them captivating and for good reason. They are not beautiful, and they have no purpose but to inflict pain, it seems.
But you see, GOD has a purpose even for the thorns. GOD weaves thorns into the revelation of His Divine purpose.
Every thorn reminds us of the canvas of GOD’S masterpiece in us. Woven in a painting with purpose, are the stokes of each one of His creations.
The One who appeared in the Garden and pronounced the curse of thorns now reappears in the midst of thorns, promising deliverance.
Did you know the “Burning Bush” was a thornbush?

CleanHeart-2-SM

The last place Israel encamps before they enter the Promised Land was called Abel-Shittim, which means “the Field of Thorns”
The raw material of that tabernacle is Acacia wood (Exodus 26:29), a small tree or bush whose branches are covered with long thorns.
Ultimately, thorns on Jesus’ head serves to remind us of the price He paid for us.
So, you see…thorns are a constant in life. From the fallen angels, demons and evil spirits to the problems we face in life…we are subjected to thorns. Inflicting physical harm along the way, but Who is the Healer? Jesus Christ. HE is!
Take your purging and pruning pains to Him! He will ease the suffering. He will give you unconditional love. No one else can make that promise!

Let me make myself perfectly clear!
There are NO ghosts. There are demonic spirits which roam the earth. People who do these ‘ghost hunts’ are only asking for trouble. Anyone who charges money for help with these types of problems are frauds!

8oi578

Manifestation
In this stage a person will unintentionally invite the demonic force in. There are said to be many different ways to on how this can happen, most commonly is playing with the Ouija board, performing séances and tarot cards. The demon will be attracted to the weak minded, low self esteem type individual. It is also said that people who are alcoholics, drug addicts and sex addicts are easy targets as well.

6uy56

Infestation
At this level the demon will start using what may seem like typical intelligent haunting signs. The demon may present itself as the ghost of a loved one or even an angel. The point is to gain trust, so the demonic may influence the person and finally take full control. Some signs of demonic infestation include rapping (knocking), shadows and shadow like figures that move with no explanation, the sounds of footsteps, weird liquids the seep through the floor or walls.

67i677

Oppression
When an individual is under demonic oppression the demon starts to effect the person psychologically, psychically and emotionally. The purpose is to cause the individual to give up the fight or will to live and damn their soul, it said this can be accomplished by suicide.

767

Possession
When an individual hits this level it is called full possession. The demon or devil now has control over the individual thoughts, emotions and behavior. The evil is frequently in charge if not constantly. If or when the person is in control of their body they usually hear evil voices either threatening them or telling them what do at all times.

65u

Death
The only purpose of possession is death of the host. The more pain and suffering the demon can cause from within the family the better.

5-stages

5 Levels of a INFESTATION
Level 1–SENSES
Level one is referred to as the sense attack because in the early stages the plot revolves mainly around the basic human senses. Individuals experiencing this stage of a plot might hear strange noises in the middle of the night or walk into a room and feel an unexplained cold spot move over their body.
They might smell strange odors that seem to have no source or see shadows move and lights flicker. Pet activity should be monitored. Animals tend to have a “sixth sense” when it comes to the supernatural!
Characteristics; Cold or hot spots – strange noises (knocking sounds, etc) Odd smells or offensive odors. Unusual animal activity (dogs and cats running around more often seeming more energetic or not staying in there usual domain). Feelings of being watched.

6u5u

Level 2–COMMUNICATION
At this level of the demonic infestation, noises, smells, and odors become more direct. The plot is still in the early energy stages, but the intensity is turned up a few notches. The encounters in the first stage will change. Instead of hearing indefinable noises the noises will turn to whispers or giggles. Instead of
cold or hot spots cold air will rush through the rooms like a wind. Small marks or symbols can be discovered on walls, floors, or ceilings. Objects and furniture will begin to move, seemingly under their own power. Unseen hands throw small objects. This is how the demon communicates its presence to
the living.
Characteristics; Whispers, laughs, giggles, Moans or shrieking-Moving shadows-Breezes in closed areas-visible clouds (base apparition) Stronger than
normal static electricity- Marks on the floors or walls – objects are moved as well as thrown.

9

Level 3–ELECTRICAL CONTROL
At this stage the demon began to make its presence felt. The differences in the first two levels are that the events can be explained away as the mind playing tricks or natural causes. At this stage, it is hard not to notice that something very real is happening. This is also the level of the classic ‘haunting’. People living in the house that reach this level begins to panic and become very afraid!
They eventually come to the conclusion something paranormal is occurring. Fear takes over as the main emotion this seems to fuel the dastardly demon to move to the next level.
Characteristics: lights and other electrical appliances turning on /off –unseen hands grabbing and /or touching people- – writings on walls or pattern markings – windows and doors open close as well as lock and unlock full apparitions as well as dark figures, strange phone calls-falling objects- moving furniture.

87o78

Level 4–TRICKSTER
This is the stage where an advanced demon begins to gain momentum, much like a snowball rolling downhill. The demon develops at a more rapid rate, always moving closer to the danger level and continuing to pick up a clearer sense of consciousness. At this stage, objects disappear or are hurled across the room. Furniture violently shakes. Trash cans and household objects spontaneously burst into flames. Unseen forces violently push people. Scary voices shout out obscenities and order the living to leave. Sometimes, it may seem as if a ‘playful’ demon is doing the actions at this stage. However, it may be gathering knowledge of what the people around it consider frightening. At the next level, it will use the information gained in a malicious and violent manner to create an atmosphere of absolute terror, which it then will use to feed from and build its own energy.
Characteristics: Flying/moving objects – Object’s disappearing/reappearing – Violently shaking furniture – Spontaneous fires – Apparitions appearing as frightening entities – Unseen forces pushing or shaking people – Visions or illusions – Voices speaking in ordering tones/foul language – People
feeling dizzy or nauseated –Windows, mirrors, or other household objects shatter for no reason- Levitation – Physical attacks.

Level 5–DANGER
At this level the demon is at its highest energy point and should be considered dangerous. Serious violent and life-threatening actions usually occur at this stage. This level can be horrifying to all of the living members involved. The time frame here, and with all the stages listed, will vary depending on
the demon. It could end in days, months, or even years. At the end of this stage, the demon will go dormant for an unknown period of time and then begin this cycle over again starting back a the first level. This stage will involve violent physical attacks involving brutal injuries. Biting, scratching,
punching, and sexual assaults may occur. Dangerous households objects such as sharp kitchen knives fly across rooms aimed to spear individuals. Blazing fires start up in rooms when everyone is asleep. The demonic energy does everything it can to lash out against the individual in its environment.
Characteristics: Dangerous activity – Biting, slapping, punching, or hair pulling – Animated objects (Jewelry, dolls, furniture) Human possession – Use of household electrical systems to cause harm –
Fires – Blood on walls, floors, ceiling – Vicious attacks by unseen forces – Being held down – Sexual assaults – Flying knives or other sharp objects – Heavy objects falling over with the intent to kill –
Threatening writings and marks – Threatening voices.
For decades now, we have required demonic activity to meet a specific set of standards. The activity would be temporary, centered around an agent, and focus on disturbance of physical objects. This way of viewing demonic activity has served its purpose well. However, as time has gone on, and
researches have been able to study even more phenomena, it seems the definition should be broadened a bit. Maybe this traditional scenario is only one part of a larger category. For our purposes, we shall now redefine the term. Whenever the repeated manifestation of demonic activity is primarily dependent upon the presence of a specific individual or individuals it is DEMONIC ACTIVITY!

KEY VERSE FROM THE ARTICLES OF WAR:
And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)

INTRODUCTION
As you learned in this course, final judgment upon Satan was already pronounced by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But it is not until Jesus returns to earth that this judgment will be totally fulfilled.
This chapter focuses on the final conflict, that last great spiritual battle which will defeat all the forces of evil. This last great conflict will result in the crowning of Jesus as King of kings, the establishment of the Kingdom of God in its visible form, and final judgment of the spiritual forces of evil.

EVENTS PRECEDING THE FINAL CONFLICT
Here are the major events that will precede the final conflict:

458147

THE RETURN OF JESUS:
The Bible teaches that the Lord will return to earth for believers. Jesus promised His followers:

…I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:2-3)

This return of Jesus for believers is also called the “rapture.” Details about the return of Jesus for believers are given in I Thessalonians 4:13-18. These verses indicate:

• Jesus Himself will return (verse 16).

• There will be a resurrection from the grave of those who were believers when they died (verse 16).

• There will be a “rapture,” which means “the act of taking a person from one place to another.” Living believers will be taken from earth to meet Christ (verse 17).

• There will be a reunion between believers who have previously died, believers living at the time of Christ’s return, and the Lord Jesus Christ (verse 17). Some people believe the rapture will occur before the tribulation and that believers will not have to experience any of this terrible time on earth. Others believe the rapture will happen midway through this period. Still others believe the rapture will happen at the end of the tribulation. The most common belief is that the rapture of believers will happen before the tribulation period begins. The different views of the timing of the rapture result from various interpretations of the prophetic portions of Scripture. What is most important is to know you are a true believer and ready to go with Jesus in the rapture whenever it does occur.
No man can know the exact time of this great event:

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36)

Although no man knows the exact timing of the rapture, Jesus did identify some prophetic signs that will indicate when the time is near. You can read about these in Matthew 24.

THE TRIBULATION:
The Bible tells of a terrible time on earth which is called the tribulation during which the spiritual forces of evil will be more active than ever in the history of the world. Satan will set up his unholy Trinity, the beast and the false prophet (Revelation 13; 16:13-14). Through “spiritual wickedness in high places” they will do signs, wonders, and deceive many. They will seek worship and condemn men with a special mark of ownership.
The tribulation will last for 42 months or 1,260 days. (Daniel 9:24-27). It will be a very difficult time. There have been many difficult times in the world before, but three things will distinguish the tribulation from all other times of trouble:

1. It will be worldwide, not just local:
…I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world…(Revelation 3:10)

2. People will realize the end of the world is near:
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;

For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:16-17)

3. The intensity of the trouble will be greater than ever before experienced:
There are a series of judgments from God which will come on the earth during the tribulation period. These judgments are described in Revelation chapters 6, 8-9, and 16 and in Matthew 24:4-14.

The reason for these judgments is that the world must be punished for sin and rejection
of God.

THE MILLENNIUM:
The Millennium is a period of 1,000 years after the tribulation during which Jesus will rule the earth in righteousness:

And the Lord shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and His name one. (Zechariah 14:9)

The city of Jerusalem will be the center of government:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills: and all nations shall flow unto it.
…for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:2-3)

Before the start of and during this Millennial period Satan and his evil forces will be bound. A great war will occur on earth and…

…the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Revelation 19:20)

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after that he must be loosed a little season. (Revelation 20:2-3)

4545

THE FINAL CONFLICT
After the thousand years, the final conflict with Satan will occur:

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth…to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city (Jerusalem)…(Revelation 20:7-9)

God will send fire from Heaven and end all opposition of the forces of evil:

…and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (Revelation 20:9)

The reason for this final battle is that Satan must at last be defeated and Jesus acknowledged as Lord of all. This completes God’s plan of the ages:

Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself;
That in the dispensation of the fullness of times, He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him. (Ephesians 1:9-10)

This is the final battle in the spiritual warfare that has raged from the rebellion of Satan down through the history of the world.

SATAN’S FINAL DESTINY
The final destiny of the trinity of Satan is the lake of fire:

And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)

The demonic angels of Satan will also be cast into the lake of fire:

Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:41)

Demons themselves recognize their own final destiny. In Matthew 8 when Jesus went into the country of the Gergesenes, he met two demon possessed men they cried out to Jesus saying…

…What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matthew 8:29)

JUDGMENT All created beings will be judged by God. This is known as the time of eternal judgment. Those who died as unbelievers will be resurrected to face judgment. Because they did not repent from sin and accept Jesus as Savior they will be condemned to eternity in Hell:

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered
up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:12-15)

True believers who repented from sin and accepted Jesus as Savior will spend eternity in Heaven in the presence of God (Revelation 21).
The great spiritual battle will be over!

And there was given Him (Jesus) dominion, and glory, and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (Daniel 7:14)

• God will encourage you in the midst of your warfare:

Fear not, nor be afraid (in the coming violent upheavals); have I not told it to you from of old and declared it?…(Isaiah 44:8 The Amplified Version)

For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:13)

I, even I, am He that comforteth you; who art thou, that thou shouldest by afraid of a man that shall die, and the son of man which shall be made as grass. (Isaiah 51:12)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper… (Isaiah 54:17)

Behold, I give unto you power…over all the power of the enemy… (Luke 10:19)

• And when the battle is over, you will stand victorious:

So use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy whenever he attacks, and when it is all over, you will still be standing up. (Ephesians 6:13, Living Bible)

TACTICAL MANEUVERS
1. Have you been defeated in a battle with Satan? Follow the four steps given in this lesson to overcome this defeat:
• Recognize your failure.
• Repent.
• Renew your spiritual strength.
• Return to the battle field.

2. One of the main strategies Satan uses to defeat believers is deception. “To deceive” is to mislead or cause someone to believe something that is not true. Here are some things the Bible teaches about deception:
• We are told that Satan is deceptive and deceives not only individuals but nations: Revelation 20:10
• Satan works with “all deceivableness of unrighteousness”: II Thessalonians 2:10
• We are warned that deception will increase: II Timothy 3:13
• Because deception will increase, we are instructed to be aware of the events indicating the return of Jesus: Matthew 24; Mark 13; II Thessalonians 2:3
• We are warned of those used by Satan to deceive: II Corinthians 11:13; Titus 1:10; II Peter 2:13; II John 7
• Every unsaved man is deceived by his own heart: Jeremiah 17:9
• Every unsaved man is deceived by sin: II Corinthians 4:4; Hebrews 3:13
• Do not accept deceptive “fair speeches” which do not agree with God’s Word: Romans 16:18; II Corinthians 4:2
You are deceived:
• If you listen to vain philosophies: Colossians 2:8
• If you trust in riches and permit the lusts of the flesh: Matthew 13:22; Mark 4:19; Ephesians 4:22
• If you are a hearer and not a doer of the Word of God: James 1:22
• If you say you have no sin: I John 1:8
• If you listen to evil men: II Timothy 3:13
• If you think you are important when actually you are nothing: Galatians 6:3
• If you think you will not reap what you sow: Galatians 6:7
• If you think the unrighteous will inherit the Kingdom of God: I Corinthians 6:9
• When you think you are wise because you have the wisdom of this world: I Corinthians 3:18
• By seeming to be spiritual when an unconquered tongue reveals your true condition: James 1:26
• If you do not believe Jesus Christ came in the flesh: II John 7
• If you think contact with sin will have no effect on you: I Corinthians 15:33
Having studied this list, do you see areas in which the enemy has deceived you? If so, acknowledge this deception, repent, and return to the battle field!
3. The Bible declares that God is your deliverer in spiritual warfare: II Samuel 22:2; I Chronicles 11:14; Psalms 18:2; 40:17; 70:5; 144:2; Daniel 6:16
• He delivers your enemies into your hand: Judges 3:28
