Sis. Catherine, you are correct. That is what I have been trying to tell others, that invisible spirits cannot be seen. They are invisible. They exist alright, but people cannot see them. They might be able to feel their presence since the Spirit of God gives us that ability but when someone says they saw a spirit stopping a car, or that a spirit was holding them down on the bed, I ask, how do you know it was a spirit? Another thing is how do they identify that it is a spirit unless they know what they look like before they see them? Thanks for your answer sister, blessings to you.
---Mark_V. on 9/14/13|
Catherine, boast in Christ and care that he is able to show you how to over come.
The way lays in overcoming darkness with light, if you are but a small match in a room of darkness others will be able to see their way.
Care about how to be a light, don't worry about who is able to see darkness, that has no use, darkness falls per-se both in the day and obviously at night.
Pray for the glory of Christ who being that blessed light in your life allows you to be able to defrentiate between evil and good.
---Carla on 9/14/13|
No one can see them, I don't care what people say. Demons are invisible, evil, beings. Always being let off the hook, because, when it's demons it's called some fancy word. I am so very adamant about the subject!
---catherine on 9/13/13|
Shira, not a problem, its ok. I just wanted to clear it up.
In answer to the blog question, Demons do very much exist. They can transform themselves with the permission of God, to human beings. I believe many humans are also possessed by demons because of the horrible things they do. We are also told in (Hebrew 13:2) "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have inwittingly entertain angels." Angels are messengers of God and are spirits, yet they might transformed themselves to human beings. The spiritual world very much exist.
---Mark_V. on 9/11/13|
markv, I apologize. I misread your post.
---shira4368 on 9/10/13|
Shira, you say,
"markv, I have never heard of a Pentecostal seeing demons all the time." I never said that. I said many, not all, see demons everywhere. I was a Pentecostal for over eight years. Went to their homes, studied with them, saw many things that were very troubling. Pentecostals were the first to make the gifts of the Spirit their main agenda. Everything spiritual was of great importance to them. They believed in demons of cancer, of poverty, of lies, of sickness, of hate, of violence, a demon for just about anything. I saw what they did with the deliverance of children, they traumatized the children. They would fall to the ground crying because adults were screeming on top of them. It was terrible thing to see.
---Mark_V. on 9/10/13|
Why do you add br>
I have witnessed orbs of light or swirls of light, I once saw a figure in the kitchen of the house my brother and cousin played a Ouija board.
many years later thought he was waiting for me to come out the bathroom, I ran to turn on the light as I had a weird sense something was not right and when I turned the light on no-one was there.
My sister was telling me last week that my father would not sleep upstairs saying he never felt comfortable and either saw or sensed some thing that made him feel uncomfortable.
I was very young at the time so I did not link any of the events to evil spirits at the time, in hindsight looking back it perhaps makes sense now!
---Carla on 9/9/13|
markv, I have never heard of a pentacostal seeing demons all the time. I know demons can take on a visible form. I've told these blogs about 2 keyboards I bought for my granddaughters. they would play by themselves. they played without batteries and would play in the middle of the night. not long after I purchased them, there was a news item saying the warehouse for toys r us was haunted. now I don't know if that is true but the keyboards is the truth. I was there and I saw it.
---shira4368 on 9/9/13|
Shira, what I found out in my early Christian life as a Pentecostal, was that many, not all, Pentecostals see demons everywhere. And every problem is because of a demon. Instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, they blame the demons for everything. A product that comes many times, from the Word of Faith teachers. I am not saying all Pentecostals, but many. The problem for us as believers is not the demons, the problem is sin. Man who is fallen doesn't know any better, but we who are saved should be able to know if things happen because of God, because of man, or because of following the desires of the devil. But as believers, we should follow the desires of God.
---Mark_V. on 9/8/13|
GOD created the angels with the ability to take on the appearance of other things, such as the appearance of a man (or woman).
This is what transpired when GOD sent two angels to deliver Lot and his family from Sodom and Gomorrah.
The two angels took on the form of two men, which some of the men of Sodom lusted after.
The same is with the fallen angels.
They have maintained their GOD-give abilities, only, they use them for evil and deception.
GOD did not take those abilities from them when they fell from Heaven.
---Gordon on 9/8/13|
Ok,Bro.Mark you are little clear, I did not know the 1st time, I saw the young teens if they were spirit or dead bodies,I walk out, the 2 nd time yes, I knew they were NOT human..
there was a bright glow strong lite around the one who spoke, I simply left and went to pray,fast they left.
Another time I saw my neighbor in her door she stood there and I talk to her, she never answer
then she just disappeared. Later that day She came home, I went & told her
I saw her in the door she said she had been at work all day!
she died a few months later..Lupus
That all I can tell you.
---Lidia4796 on 9/7/13|
markv, spirits can take and appear as a person. if you don't believe it, what happened to judas? you will never convince me that apparitions are not demons. they surely aren't saved because when the save dies, we are with God. so markv, who do you think ghost are? we know it isn't the saved.
---shira4368 on 9/7/13|
Shira, we were speaking of people seeing spirits. Which is impossible. You are speaking of apparations. In other words Ghosts. I don't see ghost, I don't see apparations either. I cannot see what others see. But I do know,
"And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works" (2 Cor. 11:14,15). In my mind I can create what I want to see, just like what happened In New Mexico, there was an apparation of Jesus on a tortilla, let me say, it was not Jesus, it was just a tortilla that was not completely smooth.
---Mark_V. on 9/7/13|
Yep and they will jack with you if you let them.
---Bryan on 9/6/13|
Space aliens/little green men from mars/flying saucers = demonic spirits
---Gordon on 9/6/13|
markv, how do you know what someone else sees? they can take any form. the secretary of our church saw the pastor standing at the door staring at her. at the time, he was no where near church. also, he never goes where a lady of the church is unless his wife is with him.
---shira4368 on 9/6/13|
Some people have said that the CE-IIIs, that is, seeing aliens, are actually seeing demons.
I don't know enough about either to have an opinion.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/6/13|
There you go again Mark_V aliens???
they'll be another soul now claiming I said I see aliens... Do you ever stop?
What's with the aliens?
There are different human kingdoms, Heavenly, Demonic, animal,fungus and Bacterium etc.
---Carla on 9/6/13|
Sis. Lidia, I am sorry, but I do not believe anyone can see invisible beings. The spiritual realm, no one can see. God is Spirit and none has seen God an lived. He said,
"You cannot see My face, for no man shall see Me, and live" (Ex. 33:20). Jesus in His humanity was seen by many, yet He said,
" Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed"
"Hello Mark, .. I tell you yes, I have seen them many times.. they look like a human being, one time I moved into a flat and there were spirits all over" If they look like human beings how can you tell which one is an evil spirit and which is a real person?
---Mark_V. on 9/6/13|
Hello Mark, I left another post re: spirits, brother I tell you yes, I have seen them many times.. they look like a human being, one time I moved into a flat and there were spirits all over
I just did like my grandmother taught me,pray run and get my bible and fast if it gets out of hand but, she told me NEVER EVER TALK to them!
She told me talking to them brings dire dangerous problems, opens up bad things..

Carla, thanks for explaining, you were a child playing with your friends. I have no problem believing there is spirits out there. My only problem with them is when people say they saw them. No one can see a spirit. They are invisible. They might feel the presence of them but no one can see them other then Christ. In the bible they spoke through the persons they possessed. Do I believe all the experiences people have? No. I don't believe the experiences that people have on Aliens either. They could have been evil spirits or just spirits. We just don't know. Maybe one day we will.
---Mark_V. on 9/4/13|
I was playing with my friends, A CHILD when these things became popular in 1970's sold in the high streets children had access via parents thinking it was just a game over 40 years ago.
A child... If you don't know, if you don't believe, if you are INNOCENT to these things... as I was I asked believing that it was the kids pushing this object.
I don't know if they even had a board, I believe it was just letters on a table and a child's bangle if I remember correctly that they were pushing.
I was unaware of spirits or evil 8 years old, OK does that mean I am an Adult, saved by grace, and a Graduate in Theology?
NO! I thought they were messing around... so now what?
---Carla on 9/4/13|
There is another blog on this subject and perhaps you will read it very carefully and see I am not the only one who can see them.
The experience is like this these spirits are not tangible, like you can see them, and touch them, some inhabit a time and space whilst you are half awake and half asleep or even in your sleep, [some]attack you and some as many people have testified will get into bed with you? Why your guess is as good as mine, I don't have a clue these are just some of the things both saved and unsaved people over the years have said.
So naturally You wrestle with them because your spirit is alive, your not dead, so you will oppose anything that in your spirit feels is not right?
---Carla on 9/4/13|
No one can see demons. You can see and feel the effect of them. They most definitely exist, however to know this you must know the living God who created them.
---catherine on 9/3/13|
Carla, you did not give much information on the experience you had. Were you born of the Spirit by God, meaning saved by Grace through faith, or do you believe you are saved by your own free will at the time? One is very much different then the other.
Were you an adult also at the time? And if you were, why did you command the board to do something for you? Make the dogs bark?
Would a believer in Christ command a spirit to do something for them?
I know you had an experience, but you did not give details.
---Mark_V. on 9/3/13|
"That is why I say we are not called to go after them".
I said who does so why did you not agree your reasoning was without merit?
yet you still make this statement?
Mark_V stop making this statement, if you must know I was once in a room with a lot of Children all who were under 18.
They were messing around with a board and I didn't believe them it was moving by itself, I asked the board to make the dog barked three times and the dog barked three times. Needless to say everything went up in the air and we all ran out the house, but I was innocent and never know what they were doing at the time.
So if this is your running down sprits why are they running after me ????
---Carla on 9/2/13|
Carla, you keep thinking I have some kind of agenda just for you. I do not. I first answered the question. It was a very simple question. Then you got all push out of shape because I answered the question. I told you if you did not want me to answer any of your questions I would not. I would honor your request. And here you are again complaining that I am doing something wrong to you. Like as if I had a plan. I don't. I just answered a simple question. Why don't you just get it all out of your heart, what is really bothering you. I will kindly answer you if you want.
---Mark_V. on 8/31/13|
Mark_V do you deliberately ignore what I said concerning the ridiculous idea of people running down satans followers.
keep pushing a story that gives you credibility in the souls of the unlearned. Ask for wisdom it is free and you will be able to discern the things of God not follow satan who is a lair from the beginning and accuses the brethren
Peace and Love Xxx
---Carla on 8/30/13|
Carla, what I did was give advice just like the rest are doing now. As far as I am concern, you can go and fight the demons and satan wherever you feel you should. But the Bible does not recomend that we go after them or try to deliver them from those who are lost. We are given the Armor of God so that we can be protected, we cannot protect the lost. They need to come to Christ. So our duty is to preach the gospel. But you can do whatever you desire. If you want to go deliver others from demons, go and try it. I am not oppose to that. God might want for you to get in trouble to teach you a lesson, I really don't know. As for me, I stay away from them as far as I can if I feel their presence around me.
---Mark_V. on 8/26/13|
Carla: Angels are spirit servants of God. Demons are spirit servants of the devil(fallen arch-angel). They were all serving God until Lucifer rebelled & demons joined him in his rebellion till now. Even you have a spirit part of you that you can not see. If you are on the Lord Jesus side, you should not desire to see demons as you see animals in a zoo. Spirit beings can take physical forms if need be.
---Adetunji on 8/25/13|
We are to always be on guard for Satan and his bunch. He will infiltrate the church and reek havoc especially in the music. We always need to be on guard. Satan is running loose here on earth but his fate is sealed. Resist him always. I have knowna person who played with some things of Satan.she was reading certain books. Satan started messing with her head and once when I visited her strange things did happen.like water in shower turned on the tv would go off and on and other strange things.
---shira4368 on 8/25/13|
Personaply i believe they exist.do i think we should go looking for them.simple answer.no.i believe angels exist so to me its fair enough to say demons do.but i think you should be highly annointed before ever trying to help deliver somebody.i hope you know yall look really dumb biggering over what she said.what if a new believer saw that? Just something to think about an mam im sure he had a reason to ask that question.theeres too much bad stuff that happens for them not to
---ally on 8/23/13|
where in scripture does it tell you to go running down the street, from house to house, town to town, place to place... to look for demons?
If it does not tell you to do so please converse that with Mark_V.
Although its a rhetorical Question !
but you never know you may just answer it Good luck

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
Where in scripture does it say the reverse?
---Carla on 8/20/13|
Carla 2, I answered you very kindly, with respect. I did not make fun of what you say. I did not in anyway say anything of you personal. But like some others here, you cannot answer with Scripture, so you attack the messenger, as most free willer's do. If you want to post something and don't want me to answer you, please make it clear on the Post. I promise I won't answer you, this way you don't have attack my person.

\\Carla, I do have a right to belief as I do and also answer as I do. I am answering the question. That is what the blog is for, for people to answer. I don't belief it is a laughing matter going after demons, or satan.\\
Is English your first language, MarkV?
"Belief" is a noun. "Believe" is a verb."
Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/19/13|
Carla, I do have a right to belief as I do and also answer as I do. I am answering the question. That is what the blog is for, for people to answer. I don't belief it is a laughing matter going after demons, or satan. That is why I say we are not called to go after them. If you want to go after them, you should do what you feel in your conscience. The Spirit speaks to our conscience, I believe the Spirit of God is telling me not to go after them, and the Word of God confirms it. If you can see them, and want to go after them, then go after them. I do not mine. I was just answering the blog question.
---Mark_V. on 8/19/13|
Who apart from those who help people to get rid of them out their houses, would be in their right minds and just up and go after demon's.
Why don't you come off that chat line now your simply not getting any laughs... in fact you are getting very repetitive and annoying!!!
I guess your ploy to get others jumping on the same bandwagon of people demon busting without a cause has now run its course time to move on...
---Carla on 8/18/13|
Carla, demons do exist. No one sees them. Like Christan said, they are spiritual beings and we are warned to put on the armor of God when we sense the enemy close to us. We as believers are not called to go after Satan or the demons.
---Mark_V. on 8/17/13|
Our world is full of things that exist, even though we can't see them. There are some things we can sense even if we can't see (like air). There are some we can't even sense directly (for example, electricity flowing through wires in our homes) - but if you plug a fork into a wall socket, you will be very strongly reminded that it IS there.
---StrongAxe on 8/14/13|
You cannot see them is simply because they are spiritual beings created by God for His Almighty purpose. Christians are admonished by Paul of who and what they are dealing with everyday,
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:11,12
Do you believe the Word?
---christan on 8/14/13|
Can you restate your question?
Don't forget that quantum physics is based on things that cannot be seen, yet apparently exist.
