Eccl.9:5" The living are conscious that they will die ; but as for the dead , they are conscious of nothing at all." Ps.146:4 :' His spirit goes out , he goes back to his ground;in that day his thoughts all his thinking do perish."

Ezek.18;4: The soul that is sinning - itself will die
Isa.53:12: " He poured out his soul "life," to the very death."

eccl.9:6:' their love and their hate and their jealousy have perished , and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun.'

Isa.26:14: " They are dead ; they will not live. Impotent in death, they will not rise up."

When Satan was cast down to earth he brought armies of angels who desired to follow him. This earth is under the ruler ship of Satan now , until Christ returns and takes it back. These are the ghost people are seeing and hearing. They are very old and have seen and heard many humans down through time. They can mimic anyone and take on the appearance of dead relatives . These Demons know personal things about our loved ones and they can change into different forms and people. It is wrong to go looking for ghost because it's Demons that you are seeing and hearing. As the second coming of Jesus Christ is getting nearer the Demon activity is also becoming more and more active. Your looking for something that can follow you home. This earth is their domain and they wish for you to search them out , this is spiritualism a form of Idolatry against God. notice in the last few years the shows on TV about ghost hunting .

If you read those scriptures that the lady wrote you will see and understand that what your seeing and hearing as your ghost hunting are indeed Demons. They want you to fall into following them and in ghost hunting that's what your doing. You open yourself up to trouble that you can't fend off on your own. They are the ghost here on earth , people whether good or bad go back to God until JUDGEMENT DAY. They do not come back to earth as some think. The DEAD ARE DEAD , the spirits you are chasing after are indeed DEMONIC.

You may think that they are good, but those demons are what the Bible calls Familiar Spirits, they know who you are, what you like, things like that, only protection is through Jesus and He has all power over these demons. If you try to find and fight these demons on your own without Jesus' power within you, you could be in trouble.

I gotta agree with the other commenter's, if you read your Bible and understand it you will plainly see who these spirits are? Their agenda is to get you to follow after them and in doing so you are going against God's teaching as to not follow after Satan and his army of Demons. They will follow you home and harass you and do all manner of evil things.

It appears to be exciting and challenging but you pay the price for becoming involved wih them and you break God's heart by chasing the evil spirits , clearly the information that you need is written in the book of God's word. This world right now is under the rulership of Satan and his army of Demons , until Jesus Christ returns to chain him up and he will regain the earth back to himself.

My advise is to study and learn about the good spirits the angels of God and his righteousness. There is just too much evil in what your wanting to do.

Satan and his associate demons, on the other hand, seek control of mankind. Satan is a mimic god. He too has ways by which he can be approached, certain things that open us up to demon control.
7 Now, Jehovah protects his people from control of the demons unless they use a channel of approach to the demons. When a person gives in to wrong or foolish desire, however, he is easily turned to some channel that the demons arrange. He then comes under their control. Such a person may not necessarily be demon possessed, but he will be doing the things the demons want him to do, the things against God. James, Jesus’ half brother, said:“Each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death.”—Jas. 1:14, 15.
8 Trying to imitate or be associates of worldly persons, or persons who follow the world’s thinking, is highly dangerous. Following their ways or trying to please them is one avenue that can eventually lead to control by the demons. Regardless of how fine such persons may appear to be, they are not guided by God’s spirit, but “according to the system of things of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit that now operates in the sons of disobedience.” That is why we should take seriously the Scriptural warning:“Bad associations spoil useful habits.”—Eph. 2:2; 1 Cor. 15:33.
9 Once the demons get a hold on a person he can rapidly go into complete degradation and an untimely death. That is what the demons like to see, especially delighting in the ruin of one who has once served God.—Compare Matthew 8:28-32.

White Hall Tavern

In 1837 Laurel, Indiana, just eight miles northwest of the old canal town of Metamora, was a booming hub of activity, as canal workers, their families and travelers crowded the streets.
Squire Clements’ White Hall Tavern, located at the corner of Baltimore and Franklin Streets, was an important and very busy hotel during the canal hey-day and for several years afterwards. Its stone steps led down to the boat landing at the canal basin.
Squire Clements was a well liked, robust, jovial man known for his hospitality. Even the somewhat rowdy Irish boatmen respected him¾though he refused to sell liquor.
One day a canal packet tied up at the boat landing for what was to be an overnight stay for the passengers, However, the next day one of them had to be left behind¾a young pregnant wife on her way out west to meet her husband.
During the early morning hours she went into labor. Mrs. Clements attended to the young woman. Before the packet left the dock, Clements sent a message to the captain telling him to find the woman’s husband and notify him that she had given birth and was too weak to travel.
It became apparent to Mrs. Clements that both the mother, already weakened by her trip, and the babe were very feeble.
Throughout the next few days, the Clements and patrons heard the young mother trying to soothe her poor babe’s crying. One night around midnight a renewed fit of crying awakened the Clements. Listening they heard the mother gently trying to hush the child. After a while they realized the crying and the mother’s attempts to quiet the babe were gradually weakening. Then there was silence. The rest of the night they heard nothing more from the babe or mother.
The next morning Mrs. Clements discovered both were dead, the child cradled in the arms of its mother. The innkeeper and his wife saw to it that both were properly buried with a small stone bearing the mother’s name and one carved merely “baby.” Waiting and hoping that her husband would come for them, the young mother had declined to name the baby until its father had arrived.
Long after the canals ceased to be used, the White Hall Tavern continued to provide room and board to travelers. Many of its guests reported hearing the sounds of a baby crying and a woman’s gentle soothing voice¾and there was, of course, no baby staying at the inn. Though the crying would be heard at various times of the day and night, the sounds were reportedly heard most frequently around midnight.
For nearly 160 years the White Hall Tavern has existed as a silent monument to Indiana’s canal era. Today the tavern sits forlorn and empty. There’s no one to hear the baby crying and the mother’s voice gently soothing the child, only the wind.

Haunted Hoosier Trails
Wanda Lou Willis
Clerisy Press 2002
Pages 55-56

Growing up in Laurel, I have always heard that the historic White Hall Tavern was haunted. People could at times hear a baby crying there. Of course there were many different stories of how the baby died, and why it could be heard crying. I know I was always afraid to go trick or treating there, when the Reese’s lived there. Mrs. Reese made and sold the best pies. She was a very nice woman. It sat empty for many years, and I was told that a few kids in town worshiped Satan there. The Old White Hall Tavern, next to the railroad tracks, is now burned down.

You have to realize that Demons are shape shifters. They are also called familiar spirits. That take on the appearance and the voice of the person who has died, they also know many dates and personal information about the deceased and family. Beware because Jesus Christ warns about becoming entangled with familiar spirits.

10 To mislead people, the demons use spiritism. The practice of spiritism is involvement with the demons, both in a direct way and through a human medium. The Bible condemns spiritism and warns us to keep free from everything connected with it.(Galatians 5:19-21) Spiritism does for the demons what bait does for fishermen. A fisherman uses a variety of baits to catch various kinds of fish. Similarly, wicked spirits use different forms of spiritism to bring all sorts of people under their influence.
11 One type of bait used by the demons is divination. What is divination? It is an attempt to find out about the future or about something unknown. Some forms of divination are astrology, the use of tarot cards, crystal gazing, palmistry, and the search for mysterious omens, or signs, in dreams. Although many people think that practicing divination is harmless, the Bible shows that fortune-tellers and wicked spirits work together. For instance, Acts 16:16-18 mentions “a demon of divination” that enabled a girl to practice “the art of prediction.” But she lost this ability when the demon was cast out of her

Have you noticed all of the Ghost shows on TV lately , they try and pull you in through the desire to learn about the idea of life after death. But there is no life in death , read your Bible and learn from the truth of Gods word. The Devil is a LIAR and he is the father of lies.

I'm telling you the Biblical truth for your own good. What difference does it make what denomination anyone is ? The truth is in the Bible starting in Genesis , not my words but the voice of God Almighty.

Doesn't matter what you believe. Truth is truth and it doesn't matter what your little beliefs or unbeliefs are. If you believed the earth was flat would that make it so?
