Ghosts to Revelation, (My Personal Testimony)

January 8, 2017 | By | 2 Comments

A lifetime in the making. A lifetime of searching, studying, research, being knocked down, picked up, testing, and some very dark days has all come full circle. I have come to a complete understanding of truth, my truth, my testimony. How I got here, what I had to do, the price I paid, where I came from, great friends, intrepid strangers, once in a lifetime lover, great teachers, preachers and seekers, haters of all kinds and a loving family and close relationships have brought me here to witness to you.

This war is for your very soul. I’m what most call a warrior. I spent my working life in law enforcement as my contribution to the battle. Once retired I found out I was still in a battle, but this time it was a spiritual battle with the dark side. A dear friend once told me the more light you hold the more the dark will seek you, and try to shut you down. How very true I have found these words to be. The more I read the Bible the more I had to deal with spirits visiting me. Once the job of man was done, and I was here alone, certain spirits came calling.  I am a believer in Jesus Christ of the New Testament. Not the New Age. This is a completely different Jesus. I encourage you to do your own research on this and the Holy Spirit will speak to you and guide you from that point on. Baptized by the holy spirit and with fire, still fighting to save souls, this is my true to life story. By telling it I hope to help others dealing with PTSD, trauma, abuse, negativity, attachments or just struggling with what is right and wrong in the spirit realm.

By now you know I see and hear things others around me do not. I am pretty sure my first experience with spirits from the dark side came upon me in the cradle. It manifested itself in many ways. Night terrors as a child, always the same dream, always. To mannequin like figures waving and playing games, and “watchers” running through my head. These were distractions hell bent on stopping me from the work I was trying to do. Blocking everything I did by throwing up illusions. Some so dark and scary I stopped what I was doing for a long time.  Visions of both God and Satan at the same time. I was confused and the more I sought out God the more Satan knocked me down. You don’t have to believe in a heaven or a hell, God or the Devil but this is my story and I lived it and I am still living it.

It came on strong once I  retired from the police force. I started looking into the things I was seeing, hearing and feeling. I would be walking down my hallway in the day light and encounter evil spirits from past deaths. I worked as a Homicide detective for years and then as a child abuse detective in a major metro Atlanta police department.  I recognized these spirits as the people I had investigated. At least at the time I felt they were indeed the victims of my past. Only later  did I realize exactly what I was dealing with. Plain as day I was seeing them and knew their names in life. These were suicide victims, murder victims, domestic abuse victims, children abused until death etc….They were everywhere and it was literally driving me crazy. I asked them what they wanted. But on some level then I knew they were not what they appeared.  But when we start communicating with the dead, all of a sudden it takes on a whole different meaning.  At the time I believed in ghosts. That these souls were lost and had come here for me to help them move on. That was what I was being told and that is what I was learning. I was to hear their story and then  move them out by whatever means necessary. Today I have a new understanding on these spirits. They were not ghosts of the people who had once lived here on earth. They were and are to this day evil spirits pretending and deceiving us into believing we are communicating with loved ones. They lie, spirits lie just as Satan is the “father of lies” and will masquerade as an “angel of light” you will be deceived. I know this is going to raise some questions to how you believe in this fallen world of Ghosts, Angels, Devils, Spirits and Paranormal TV shows. But here again I encourage you to seek your own truth and research and ask the tough questions and by all means learn to test the spirits. I will have more on that later in this article. The bottom line in all this, is that there are God’s ministering Angels here to do his bidding, and there are Satan’s fallen angels, evil spirits and demons out to deceive and destroy. That is the spirit realm. Your loved ones are not disembodied spirits or ghosts roaming this earth stuck or lost looking to visit or haunt you. It is unbiblical and there is scripture at the end of this article to back that up. Seek for yourselves my friends.

The night was the worst. Sleep paralyses was a common thing for me. Visions of horrifying things. Devils covered in blood with goat heads and performing sexual orgies. Light so bright I could not see. Visions of  “Ascended Masters” walking right through my living room. “The Great White Brotherhood”, and even Jesus himself showed up. Then layers of unspeakable things. “Shadow People”, “Watchers”, cave like creatures walking on the walls and ceiling, me dodging objects that no one else could see. More suicide victims showing up day and night, a jester upside down so close to my face I screamed. This went on for years before I could bring myself to seek help. Help in the form of the medical profession proved useless, as the doctors only want to put you on medication and counsel you that what you are seeing and feeling is in your head. Believe me it has been a journey and I assure you I am quiet sane. I began to teach myself  by research, prayer and the help of some very good and priceless teachers and friends. I realized I was not alone in this, that other people had experienced similar phenomenon.

Now I do believe in the supernatural, it is real. God is a supernatural spiritual being and Satan is also a supernatural spiritual being. Evil is real and it walks among us. So you have the good and the bad right in front of you, and it is a daily battle to those who choose to know the truth, and those who must continue their work in healing others. One by one the work I did for two years with healers and teachers would clear out these dark spirits and send them back to God to deal with. It took time, patience, friends, family, counselors of all levels to heal me. I am still learning how to keep these spirits from coming to me and it will always be that way, for it is who I am and it is what I am supposed to do to help move the darkness from this planet. These victims I spoke of earlier are still just under the surface, watching and waiting for me to stumble again. That my friend is living with PTSD, and  I am not alone. There are millions of others who battle the dark and the light and walk the path of the shadows, besides me.

My personal  testimony started with a day in May, 2016. Jesus came and got me one day last summer. HE found me in my backyard doing yard work. I had just hung up the phone from a disagreement with a friend . I had enough and decided to just lay it all down. I was going to stop trying. I reached out to God like never before. Asking why was all this confusion being placed upon me? After all, I had been through why was I being knocked down, ridiculed, people being afraid of me, people and friends backing away from me. My path apparently was taking a strange new turn. I was fed up with the ways things were. I wanted it to stop. I would stop everything. I would throw out all my books, notions, cards, artifacts, even a few Bibles. Everything I had learned or acquired over the years , all of it had to go just for some peace.

That’s when things changed. Right there on a beautiful summer day in May He came. I was suddenly overcome with peace and love. I looked to the sky and the wind picked up at that very moment, blowing the trees sideways. I could feel the spirit of God in the wind. I was delivered. I  saw the animal kingdom float by in the clouds and I knew I would lose my beloved Maine Coon  soon. He died 18 days later at the age of 20 and after a long battle to stay here with me. The night all this happened, I was awakened at 2am by a strange feeling of being watched. When I sat up in bed my room had changed to a gray color with tiny pixels in the air . As I tried to focus I saw and heard the fluttering of many wings, I also heard a gentle voice say

“There is power in the blood”, I saw the outline of God’s Angels that early morning. I have learned to test the spirits and believe me these were from God. I have seen Angels here before, but this  night and this message after all that came before was my confirmation. My new path was being set before me. I  changed that day in May and now I am here to share that testimony, to witness and to spread God’s  word.

I struggle no more with the ins and outs of the spirit world.  Not even using the Bible as my main guide these days can answer all the mysteries out there, and it is not supposed to. We will know all that is hidden, for everything will be revealed for all of us one day. Until then I hold fast these few verses that have changed to way I do my work, my teaching and my entire belief system. I have lost some friends along the way and that is expected, but I have also held onto the true friendships that remain today and the new ones that are coming my way.  So I leave you with this, and encourage you to reach out, ask questions and discover for yourself the truth. I will not judge you for that is not my job, I only ask that you do not judge me for my testimony as you read these words.

Ecclesiastes 9:5-6,10

For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion forever in any thing that is done under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 12:7

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

At death the body returns to dust, and the spirit goes back to God, the one who gave it. The spirit of every person who dies, whether righteous or wicked, returns to God at death.

Job 14:12

So man lies down, and rises not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

As a spiritual intuitive I feel confidant you and I can do as Jesus said:

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12

“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8

Spiritual gifts given to all who ask and accept the truth, and believe:

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

Mark 9 38,39

Whoever Is Not Against Us Is for Us

38 “Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”

39 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,

I leave you with this:

1 John 4,1

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

I know and understand the journey ahead. If I can be of help please contact me.

    Your God given gifts in the past may have seemed as if more of a curse. Personally, I am so grateful for your gifts as you have helped me so many times throughout many situations. I value you for who you are in all that you have done and continue to do not only for me but for everyone you encounter. I am blessed to call you “friend.”
