    I recently reviewed the threads I started last year on the supernatural and the haunted house account that I gave in May and I realized that I could have given better answers to some of the questions that were asked. I'll attempt to do that now, at least for those who remained polite and maintained a civil conversation. Those that mocked the information and the account of the house that terrified the poor family I described will be avoided. Some of them had such a horrible attitude that I didn't want to continue to communicate with them.

    But here goes:

    1. One poster asked, "Why are you doing this?" In other words why post this information? Answer: Because the Lord wanted me to reach out to places where there might be others who have likewise had similar terrifying experiences and they needed to know that there were not crazy/insane and that they could get help like the poor family I described in some detail last spring. Such was the case with the family that once lived in the haunted house ten years ago.

    (Note: not the actual house but very similar to it)

    2. Another asked, "How do you know that the photo that had the many thousands of orbs were actually demons and not merely dust particles?
    [​IMG]

    Answer: Because that wasn't the only picture the owner took of the sky just outside the house where he lived. Those orbs were not dust. They was not raindrops either. How do we know? Because some of the pictures he took were perfectly clear and free of orbs and others taken within seconds or minutes of each other had the orbs. The sky was clear and the weather was perfect and the owner told me that his camera lens had been cleaned and there was no dust upon it.

    Question to the questioner: Are these dust particles or water drops? If so then some of them are going downward and some of them moving upward at high speed.

    [​IMG]

    How about this object. A full glowing orb in the middle of a clear day. I can show you dozens of orbs that cannot possibly classify as either dust or water droplets.

    3. Another inquired; "Why didn't you make all your photos available to everyone? Answer: Because every Christian website has its bad apples and I wanted to sort out the seriously curious from the bad attitudes. They waste so much time with their inane questions and insulting insinuations. The criticisms and remarks became so bad that the moderators shut down two of the three threads I started during that time. Since I never received even so much as a warning or reprimand then I figure the moderators saw how awful their behavior was and wanted to stop things from getting worse.

    4. Another charged me saying, "You are obsessed with dark things" (not an exact quote).He was right about me being obsessed, but not with dark things. I am obsessed with helping people who are ensnared by the devil and his evil minions and I wish to reach out to anyone who wants to be delivered from that evil just like the Bible reveals so many times in the gospels and Acts.

    5. One poster outright flat denied that the Dungeons and Dragons role playing game was evil and challenged me to prove that anyone had ever gone insane because of the direct influence of the game. I did. I provided the example of John (Butch) Witte, while during a game of D & D with is mother and his brother Eric who in 1984 under the guidance of their mother left the downstairs like a hypnotized person to obtain a crossbow the family owned and shot an arrow right through his grandmothers heart while she lay sleeping in the upstairs bedroom. Then, in order to hide their evil deed they cut their grandmother up in pieces and wrapped her body parts in white wrapping paper like so many pieces of meat and stored her in the freezer. Over the next few months they ate her. I was shocked into oblivion by this because both Butch and Eric used to ride my bus to church every Sunday during the mid 1970's and Eric was in my sixth grade Christian school class. I never dreamed they could ever be involved in something like that. But the whole family backslid and refused to come back to church. About seven years later and many terrible compromises with evil they did their dastardly deed and I think all of them are still in prison to this day.

    The same poster challenged me to bring forth my file on D & D to prove that the terrible things I was saying about the game had some substance to it. Unfortunately I had forgotten that I eliminated that file about 15 yrs ago thinking that it was a dead issue and that few if any were playing the game any longer. But I had forgotten about the most important evidence against D & D and that was this:

    What I had forgotten however, was perhaps the most important part of the evidence against D & D: the James Dallas Egbert III case in which a Mich. State student shot-gunned himself to death, having been the dungeonmaster of a group of D & D fans who saw Egbert's personality change over time as they got deeper and deeper into the game. The case was famous enough that Hollywood made a movie (Monsters and Mazes) starring Tom Hanks....'inspired' by the Egbert case. The Tom Hanks character became so insane that he actually thought he was in a different reality and could not communicate rationally with others. That's what happened to Egbert.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Dallas_Egbert_III

    Through the years my fellow counselors and I have been in a literal spiritual mortal combat with many of the devils ('monsters') that are mentioned in the D & D game.The one that shocked me the most was the 1994 battle over a Valerie P. who was overtaken by a spirit that was half man and half spider called 'Drider'. Her deliverance was the most violent I have ever seen and she once set her husbands hair on fire while he was eating breakfast...for no apparent reason. I did not know that 'Drider' was part of D & D until I found him/it in one of the D & D Monster Manuals in 1998. The description was the exact thing we encountered four years earlier.

    6. One of the more hostile critics asked me, "Have you ever been counseled for a mental disorder?" I thought he was joking and I treated it that way. But giving a better answer than I gave him then: "No, I never have and never needed to."

    I am appalled at the lack of spiritual discernment as it concerns evil in this day and age. The average Christian is so ignorant of the spiritual warfare going on all around us and most don't even recognize evil things when it is right before their eyes.Examples: D & D, Magic the Gathering, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. are but a few that have very strong elements of Gnostic though and practice, or immorality, or the promotion of evolution (Star Trek especially) and anti-Christian/anti-biblical notions. But i find that most Christians don't even know what gnosticism is in the first place...and neither do their pastors.

    Proverbs 29:18 ΒΆ Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

    The poor family that came through the horrible poltergeist terror of 2005-2007 are here with me now and they are all doing very well.

    [​IMG]

    One poster, after I exposed the movie 'Underworld' about vampires vs werewolves, yet told me, "Yeah, that was a real cool movie. I'd like to see it again.' Good grief. But really, Underworld is awful, ugly and demonic. There were no good guys in the movie. It certainly ranks as one of the top 100 most evil motion pictures ever made. Likewise as I said before we have encountered the devils from that movie ....by name. They didn't hide the fact that they were displayed before the whole world in that awful movie. Having reviewed the thing prayerfully, it gave me a good idea as to the nature of the evil we were battling in that haunted house. But my critic/counterpart thought the movie was 'cool'.

    For those opposed to this kind of expose' of wicked things, you need to understand that we are COMMANDED to have spiritual discernment to divide good from evil and to help those that are ensnared by Satan. Ephesians 5:11. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

    I may post a few video clips tomorrow but I will only have about a half hour a day to answer questions. I will, however, do so only for those that are honestly curious and not time-wasting critics.

    This mess is a lot like the tongues issue. I believe in tongues just not the tongues that often gets presented as some ecstatic gibberish they themselves do not even understand because it is not intelligible.

    I also believe in the spiritual warfare. It is real, it is necessary, it is scriptural it just is not "orbs" floating around in front of a camera. There are many credible reports of the supernatural related to spiritual warfare. It never looks like the Amityville Horror movie.

    Some people are looking under every rock for Satan and Demons. They are hyper-focused on the issue and it is never good.

    Sir, I don't know how you and a few others managed to slither out of my ignore box since I was here last but since you pre-judged me on this matter purely by mere opinion and without facts to prove what you were saying and since I do NOT wish to engage you in another exchange, then I will once again relegate you to the ignore category. I want you to remember that I personally offered to let you be in direct communication with some of the fifteen witnesses that observed the same supernatural activity we encountered at that formerly haunted house, but you deliberately ignored me. The truth is that you, sir, are so ignorant and inexperienced in such matters that to carry on an intelligent conversation with you would be a futile effort.

    Everything I have posted in this matter is truthful and you will know that when you face Christ in that yet coming day. You need to learn young man, that you should NEVER make charges against your Christian brother unless you have the proof that he is truly in error or has lied. You cannot do that in this matter.

    Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

    You may reply but you will be replying to thin air because I won't be reading it.

    When you cannot actually defend your position outside of unsubstantiated anecdotes then one must necessarily resort to these pejoratives and rants.

    I'm so blessed that my God has Kept me from this sort of thing. I can only say that if men will look at the world with a discriminating heart they will find the whole world is wallowing is the deceptions of Satan. It's not any thing new, it's been going on since the beginning. Some refuse to believe it, but there are some of us who are aware. We can only resist Satan and his demons any thing other than this has to be fought by the Holy Spirit. It wouldn't be advisable to take it on by our selves.

    Calypsis4, just for general consumption here I'd like to say that I have never responded to you regarding any subject nor do I know anything about you. I would like to ask if you would be willing to provide any insight into your forum name..., that of Calypsis. What does this refer to?

    In response to your original posting I would like to provide that twice in my life I have confronted (things) I could not explain and have been confronted a few times with whatever it is that causes the hair on the back of your neck to stand up. When this has happened I've spoken aloud and commanded that in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus of Nazareth, depart from me! On those occasions that influence seems to have departed. I can only assume I was being influenced with evil.

    I do believe that satan has the ability to manifest himself in our presence in unrecognizable forms. Real manifestations of demons and perhaps satan himself can happen, obviously, to those under the influence of illegal drugs. I've never been there myself but have read accounts of such encounters. Scary for sure.

    There is a lot we don't know and/or understand and some of this we really don't need to know anything about. I believe that if we could see the demons around us we'd die as our hearts would stop beating from fright. Our only barricade separating us from the full effect of evil comes from our faith in the Lord.

    As for that family you speak of..., I can believe it.

    Thank you for your kind reply. The word Calypsis has its root in the Greek word Kalupto which means 'hidden' or 'covered'. I used that word as the subtitle of my third book. the idea being that the Lord covered (protected) the hero of the story and those closest to him from their evil enemies with a great shield of the Holy Spirit. The book/series, however had nothing to do with haunted houses.

    Calypsis, back in the early 1980's my brother-in-law rented a big home in Gloversville, NY for his family to live in. Him, his wife and five kids. This was a big three story home that had been built back in the 1800's by a man who was a Judge. Levi Parsons. Here's a link to the guy.
    http://gloversvillelibrary.org/levi-parsons-library/

    One evening the wife was washing dishes and one of their daughters came down the stairs and into the kitchen asking who the man was in the living room. Scared mom to death so with rolling pin in hand she ventures into the living room.

    No man.

    The daughter was probably 9 years old at the time. They figured it must have been Levi. Who knows. My wife and I stayed with them for a few days but never noticed anything out of the ordinary.

    Here's another link to Levi. http://www.kshs.org/dart/units/view/47134

    One last thing concerning the orb/demonic matter:

    Early last summer I was walking from our property to the gas station across the street when I noticed that a man pumping gas suddenly stopped and started walking away from his car and seemed to be looking up into the western sky. Since he was headed in a direction that was going to cross my path I greeted him but he said nothing. He just kept looking up into the night sky. So I turned and looked to my left and saw what had captured his attention: a fairly large red orb had just come underneath the overcast night sky and was headed our way just over the street where I live. The thing was brilliant red and made no noise whatever. I told him, 'That's no airplane nor is it a helicopter'. He replied, "You're right. I've seen these kind of things before." After standing there observing it for a few more seconds we were both taken by how spectacular the object looked.

    It looked like this:

    [​IMG]

    The sky at that time was much darker than it appears in this picture.

    Then I told him, "I'm going to get my camera and get a shot of this!" So I ran back across the street to my office, but I stopped abruptly in my front yard and upon a hunch I shouted at the object, "In the name of Jesus Christ stop! Don't move until I return." Amazingly the orb did just that and stayed in a position about 250 feet down the middle of the road and about a hundred yards off the ground.

    I grabbed my camera and quickly turned it on while returning to the front yard. I got three pictures of the object but as soon as I did the object then began to retreat and made a squiggly path in a southwest direction back up into the low laying clouds and vanished from my sight. It all made me think of that powerful passage in James;

    ..."resist the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7

    [​IMG]


    This particular picture is squiggly because I couldn't hold the camera still while it retreated away from me and passed up into the southwest sky.

    Well, I have seen similar things in the skies about our little town and twice before gotten pictures of them --- all red orbs. On one occasion there were three of them in a triangular formation. I was merely taking a picture of a beautiful moon and didn't see them until I brought the picture in view on my camera.

    I am aware that orbs are sometimes nothing more than dust, sometimes they are rain drops, and sometime they are distant airplane lights. But sometimes they are spiritual . Airplanes do not stop in mid-air upon command and then back away up into the sky reversing the path from which they came. In fact many of the UFO 'orbs' are actually demonic spirits that are posing as space crafts and/or aliens from another world. The following video is from NASA STS 114;



    How do we know that this is not dust particles, meteors or 'space junk'? Answer: Because neither dust particles nor meteors make right angle turns at high speed and they do not stop cold on a dime and make obviously intelligent decisions in changing direction. They are evil spirits. They are merely impersonating E.T.'s and are almost certainly being used by Satan as tools to bring on the Antichrist, a la 'Childhood's End'.

    Remember, Satan is the 'prince of the power of the air' and the area around the earth is filled with millions of them. Sometimes cameras pick up what they are doing.

    Calypsis4, I am of the opinion that anyone who systematically discounts away the existence of UFO's, Bigfoot sightings, poltergeist activity, crop circles, etc., are living in denial and said de-nial ain't a river.

    Our Bible speaks frequently of satan (I don't like to capitalize the name satan) and his demons. ...satan is the great deceiver. I am of the opinion that believers who delve too deeply in such can easily fall victim to increase demonic agitation within their own lives which isn't healthy, for sure.

    On occasion I've watched the TV series, Ghost Hunters and it tickles my funny bone when the investigators say something like, "We're not here to hurt you - we want to help you". Souls DO NOT find themselves "caught between" and need help in finding "the light". That's nonsense but that guy Jason earns right at 25 grand for each segment of the show so to him it's all about the cash register.

    I do not believe there are any other life forms in the universe. No ET's. No ancient aliens. There could be as it all belongs to God the Father but that's up to Him and not for us to know. There are other dimensions but no "worm holes" in which to transverse the great expanse of the universe in minutes or seconds.

    Paul spoke of being caught up to the 3rd Heaven so yes, I do believe other dimensions exist all around us but we're not privy to them. What dimension do we live in? God the Father is in the 7th dimension? What dimension is Hell?

    An interesting topic but not worthy of much concern on the part of believers. ...just my opinion.

    That's more than just an opinion. It appears that the Lord has given you some good discernment.
    [​IMG]
    In this composite picture below the one on the upper left was drawn by the satanist Aleister Crowley (called himself 'the Beast, 666') in 1905 after he had done a magic ritual to bring him forth. This was over four decades before the modern advent of the UFO movement. It is said it was the only one Crowley ever personally saw in person. But compare that with the typical picture of a space alien as conceived by personal witnesses and countless motion picture depictions of them in modern times.

    'But strong meat belongeth unto them who are of full age, even those who by reason use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.' Hebrews 5:14

    One other thing about Dungeons and Dragons: I did a search on AOL entitled D & D spell casting and this is what I discovered...

    [​IMG]
    (For a much closer look at the details: https://www.ddo.com/en)
    That friends is a devil standing before a witchcraft grimoire (book of magic) and the round symbol is one of the main pentacles for black magic power. The players are encouraged to call up monsters(devils) to defeat other devils in the game. Proof:

    [​IMG]
    (For a much closer look at the details: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/old-black-magic)

    Pure black magic. IN case you cannot read the final sentence above it says..."Addtionally, a new suite of conjuration spells allows casters to call forth demons to do their bidding."

    I was told by one of the posters that this does not happen in the game but it appears that it does.

    Shame on those who criticized this effort to expose this evil game for what it really was/is.
    Galatians 5 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft...
