What is a ghost and do I believe in them?

October 31, 2009

180px-William_Hope_001Ok Anointed readers I got issued a challenge of sorts in the form of a comment.   Here it is …..”Nice article and finally there is a Christian who can tell the truth. I still believe that everyone needs some darkness in their lives. What I don’t understand is that you don’t seem to believe in ghosts, but you believe in the holy ghost. If  God does give us free will, why can’t he give us the will to stay here?” … Allow me to answer that for you “Corcey”  one bit at a time, and thanks for stopping by.

Number one,  The Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost is not a Ghost in the ethereal sense,  it does not haunt.  It is a part of the godhead  The Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost  (whatever your preference) being a distinct person of the Trinity.  He was sent to convict those who are in sin,  convert those who choose to believe, and he dwells in the believer.  He is also known as the comforter and counselor.

John 14:16-17

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever– the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. (NIV)

Now as far as free will goes,  it is true that God has given us free will,  but that free will only goes so far in death.  The bible clearly states that “And it is appointed unto men once to die and after this then the judgment” Hebrews 9:27 The devil has tried many times to make a mockery out of what God has said by putting on a show with familiar spirits through psychics and sightings of ghosts.   Once a spirit leaves this mortal plane for good they are long gone!   They are judged and the rest is left up to the almighty God.
