Haunted House?

Q. When I was young I was told never to believe in ghosts. When I got a little older I noticed strange things happening in our old house. I was always told these things were because the house was old. So being told I was silly I brushed it off.

When I was in high school my parents built a new house right behind the old one and then tore it down. After we moved all the strange things seemed to stop and then one day it all began again. One night not too long after going to sleep I got that odd feeling that someone was staring at me. I saw a man standing 3 foot away from the foot of my bed just staring at me, my body stiffened up and I couldn’t move. Later, my parents searched the whole house and my room all windows and doors had been locked the whole time.

My mom confessed that in our old house one night when she was making dinner she got this weird feeling so she turned around and was face to face with someone. She said she immediately closed her eyes and stood there for about a minute and then reluctantly opened her eyes and no one was there. My brother admitted that he had always had this feeling that he wasn’t alone, that someone was watching. Its been said that they are demons though they have never hurt us should we fear them? Are they with us for a reason or just to scare us?

A. The only thing the Bible says about ghosts and the like is that we’re to have nothing to do with them. It doesn’t matter whether they appear to be good bad or indifferent, interaction with the spirit world is forbidden. (Deut. 18:9-12)

I would advise your parents to get some believers who understand these things together and pray over and through your house to make it off limits to the spirit world.
