Paranormal Exorcist and Seal of Solomon

It seems like paranormal television shows never cease to deliver this season. Again, watching the Scooby gang on Ghosts of Shepherdstown, season 2, episode 8, titled "What an Excellent Day for an Exorcism,"  the viewing audience was treated to another paranormal demonic expulsion. The minister Nick Groff and the gang brought in was introduced as an ordained Catholic minister and exorcist. Again, listen carefully to scripting in these paranormal shows, there are always red flags. Here I want you to pay attention to the guest ordained Catholic minister and exorcist. An ordained minister is a layman minister and not clergy. Catholics don't allow laymen to be an exorcist. The office of exorcism is for clergy only and the assignment is handed down by a Cardinal or someone high up. A Catholic layman can be a deliverance minister but not an exorcist!

The plot thickens as the episode unfolds, where Nick brought in this "exorcist" to expel a demon (by the way this is never singular, demons travel with buddies) from the Ye Old Myst Tea House in Shepherdstown. The exorcist enters with the black clergy looking outfit, no collar (not clergy) and is wearing a cross around his neck. So far, okay. No big deal. The minister is led into the tea shop which is a war zone with debris scattered all over by the floor. I am curious what this exorcist is going to do since he was is forbidden to use the Rite of Exorcism (he wasn't approved by the Catholic church). I was pontificating that perhaps the audience was going to see a deliverance ministry session since by Catholic faith he couldn't use the Rite. I am also curious as to why the show didn't reach out to the Catholic diocese for a real exorcist in the first place! Credibility for this show is not a high point with

The exorcist prepares for battle by drawing in chalk on the floor, the star of David and enclosing it in a circle.

Record scratch!

Wait a minute. What? This resembled a ritual pentagram drawn in chalk, but it was the star of David.  This symbol is the seal of Solomon, a secret society occult symbol.  Its called a hexagram and is used in witchcraft and Freemason rituals. Wasn't this guy supposed to be a Catholic minister?? Baffled? Why would a Catholic minister use the occult to protect him from demons? Then this minister proceeds with a ritual in Hebrew that calls Yahweh and Y'shua (Jesus). No Catholic liturgies or anything. No I am intrigued as to what the heck I am watching. It's not Christian that's for sure!

The minister then rubber stamps the seal of Solomon on the Scooby gang. Which now includes the show psychic. Any Christian spiritual warfare minister worth their grain of salt (no pun intended) would ever bring a psychic to demon fight. Another red flag! This is the occult folks!!!

Then there is the dramatic moment in the show, with the minister shouting, "I command you in the name of Yahweh God, to bring yourself into the seal of Solomon." Again? What?? This isn't Old or New Testament spiritual warfare. This is New Age Jewish mysticism. A true Christian minister would have bound the spirits in the name of Jesus Christ (if these were low-level demons). In the case of what the show portrayed, they needed a real exorcist. Demons are expelled from a different prayer posture. What ensues next is the Scooby gang gets thrown a good ol fashion Sons Scheva beat down. The demon doesn't even go full force, it freaks them out with false fevers, nausea, and onslaught of the single tiny spider.

During this spiritual battle the "exorcist" never relied on his faith to expel the demon. He was stirctly adhering to occult formulas. Which any Christian deliverance minister knows is in effective against demons. Again, refer to the book of Acts and the Sons of Scheva who were thrown a beating by demons they were trying to expel. What do demons fear? Demons fear a person of faith because they have the spiritual depth and relationship with the reality of Jesus Christ to expel dark spirits. A powerful minister is a person whose soul is in a transforming union with Jesus Christ. A strong soul in Christ is kryptonite to demons and they won't follow these kinds of souls home!

Now back to wackiness at the tea shop. The minister has the Scooby gang renounce all ceremonies of satan. What did this guy just perfom? The seal of Solomon is the occult! Yes, this presentation of spiritual warfare was an atrocity. I am curious where this individual is ordained and which Catholic parish allows this minister to operate in this manner. It's not Christian, it's New Age. I am guessing he must be a universalist minister. But then again, what should I expect from a paranormal show.

Wasn't Shepherdstown cleansed by the psychic minister previously? If I remember correctly from season one, didn't the show psychic break the curse over Shepherdstown. Oh, yah. We're not supposed to be paying attention. The show concluded with everyone happy and that the site was cleansed. This is exactly the scene from the Poltergeist movie, "This house is clean!'. It's not, no one in the cleansing party was there with the faith to expel these demons. They demons went out for re-enforcements! I guess that's what we'll see in season 3.

Sidebar, I had to Google this exorcist to find out what exactly his background was in ministry. He has ties to the Old Catholic Church. Which is not Catholic, but in short an abomination to the Catholic Church. The paranormal field is so twisted in spirituality it always gravitates to the Old Catholic Church for help. From the home web page this exorcist also has ties to the Dominion Ministry, which is pagan spiritual warfare.

In closing, if you're Christian and thinking you're an exorcist or a deliverance minister for the paranormal, you need to go pray and re-think your position in the greater plan of things. People viewing these shows and replicating these occult practices will get hurt. I can guarantee your lives will be destroyed. This is something you don't mess with at all! That's why the Catholics don't let layman be exorcists. A spiritual attachment is something you never want on you or your home. Those of us who have been brought into a spiritual fight by God DON'T live in oppression like these ghost hunters do. Go look on youtube and see for yourself the spirits that torment all these paranormal celebrities. These things are real and they bite back.

Well, that's enough for now. Hope this was beneficial.

The Spirituality of Paranormal Show Psychics

I've been watching Nick Groff's television show on Destination America, called the Ghosts of Shepherdstown. These ghost hunting shows are interesting because of the spirituality embedded in these shows. Have you ever watched these shows and see someone spout something Christian, but their lifestyle and spiritual choices aren't that of a follower of Jesus Christ? If you know what you're watching these shows are fascinating labs into examining the spiritist belief systems that drive these paranormal investigators. Zac Bagans of Ghost Adventures fame has mentioned many times on his show that he believes in a god. But which god? The words Jesus Christ never seem to roll off from his lips. The Tennessee Wraith Chasers hit the reality-paranormal scene as Christian ghost hunters, again, an oxymoron, if you understood the difference between Christianity and spiritism. In their new show, they seemed to have dropped the opening prayer at the start of the show. So what is going on here? Why is this an oxymoron?

Let's take a look at the belief system of a paranormal show psychic. What do they believe? I want to focus on the psychics who have mentioned some degree of faith in God on these shows. But the actions of dealing with spirits don't line up with what they espouse to believe in. You can learn a lot of by listening to these people and then trying to figure out what their spiritual beliefs are.

First of all, can a Christian be psychic? What does the Word of God say about this?

31 ‘Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.
-Leviticus 19:31

God tells us not to seek out a psychic or to communicate with the dead. This is pretty cut and dry. We're not to communicate with the dead nor be a psychic (and ghost hunting for that matter).

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do so.
-Deuteronomy 18:10-14

The Mosaic Law states that the spiritist and the medium are detestable to the Lord. This is pretty simple and straight forward. God identifies spiritism as witchcraft. We are not to speak to the dead or participate in any form of spiritism. King Saul's transgression against the Lord was seeking a medium to contact Samuel, who was dead in Hades.

13 So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it,
-1 Chronicle 10:13

The paranormal show psychics I have researched who use the name of the triune God have an interesting and alternative Gospel theology. According to their beliefs, the psychic abilities are covered under the New Testament as gifts of spiritual discernment,

7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
-1 Corinthians 12:7-11

Paul's epistle to the Corinthians on gifts of the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with psychic abilities. The deception comes in to play at verse 11, with discernment of spirits. This has nothing to do with seeing or talking to dead people. Why would the Holy Spirit empower you with a gift that is an abomination and goes against His moral values? It's because God didn't give the psychic the gift to see the dead. It was a spiritual gift that the psychic allowed to be hi-jacked through their spiritual belief system. In the book of Acts, Paul casts out a pythonic demon out of a psychic fortune teller. I want you to connect the dots that psychic abilities are not covered or condoned under the Christ-centric belief system of the Holy Bible. Where do these beliefs come from? It's called universalism. A spiritual belief system where Buddha, Jesus, spiritism, mother earth, voodoo, shamanism, you name it, are all the same. Equal playing field. This is not Christianity, but this is the foundation of the system of beliefs with popular reality show paranormal investigators.

Keep in mind, that the Christian faith revolves around the first commandment.

37 And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment.
-Matthew 22:37-38

Remember, the Christian God, our one True God, is a jealous God.

14 —for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God
-Exodus 34:14

These are not the signs of soul that is an transforming union with God.

Therefore, universalism and Christianity mix like oil and water. A psychic can't be calling on powers of other gods (lower case elohim - demons) if they call on the Ancient of Times, I AM, the God Almighty, Jesus Christ Lord of lords, King of kings. It just doesn't align! Something to consider when watching these shows. Consider the big question, who or what is responding when the occult calls out to God?

Stay tuned for the release date of this new book!!!

Well, that's enough for now. Hope this was beneficial.

The Paranormal and the False Trinity

Paranormal reality shows are the biggest money makers for network television. They're cheap to produce, and fans flock to them by the droves. They're guaranteed income for networks that air these shows. As spiritual warfare minister, I watch these shows to see what society accepts as spiritual warfare versus what every Christian should know.

Some of the shows out this summer include The Ghosts of Shepherdstown, with Nick Groff, of Ghost Adventures fame, and the new comer paranormal show, The Lowe Files, which is a small, ineffective rip off of Destination Truth, featuring Rob Lowe, and his two grown sons.

I arm chair quarterback these shows to see what is all the rage in paranormal investigations. One of the new trends is for the psychics on these shows to portray biblical knowledge of spiritual warfare in one scene, and then immediately in the next scene, call on the occult to engage the demonic. In both, The Ghosts of Shepherdstown, and The Lowe Files, psychics were on hand who called upon the Holy Trinity for protection. Yes, a psychic, in Ghosts of Shepherdstown, and a shaman, in The Lowe Files, called on the Holy Trinity to protect them. What is going on here? Why is the Holy Trinity called to push back on the demonic presence, but not used to expel the demons at the site?

Examples from recent shows:
The Ghosts of Shepherdstown - S02E03 Whatever You Do, Don't Fall Asleep
Psychic - "If you're not of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, you're not welcome here.

The psychic in this show that calls on the Holy Trinity, doesn't call on the true God for banishing but resorts to using black salt.

The Lowe Files - S01E01 - Preston Castle
This is a scene where the shaman and the Lowe's go outside for healing the land. The shaman starts doing a native American ritual and the spirit box requests Bible. The shaman laughs, like it's an absurd request, and starts a Christian (new age) healing of the land.

Shaman - Bible? (chuckles)  wants a Christian healing...

Rob Lowe - Wants a Christian healing...

Shaman - the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, ... come here today to pray for these souls. Want them to be cleaned, cleansed, redeemed, forgiven, healed, and allowed to move on. The next world, as free souls. Come with your light in the name of Jesus, in the name of the angels, rest in peace. Once and for all. Amen.

Christians who don't understand the occult would be deceived into believing the psychics on these shows are calling on the true resurrected Jesus. This is not what is happening here. This is New Age spiritism that is being displayed on these shows that are slowly moving into darker waters of the occult.

When a psychic calls on the name of Jesus in these shows it is demonstrating the deception that the Triune God is ok with contacting the dead. The truth of the matter is, God is not ok with this. We know from scripture, 1 Chronicles 10:13, that Saul's transgression against God was summoning the spirit of Samuel from the realm of paradise, through a psychic medium.

13 Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord; he did not keep the word of the Lord and even consulted a medium for guidance,

These paranormal show psychics claim that God and the Holy Spirit is their method of discernment. God doesn't want His people contacting the dead, He doesn't give out this gift. Psychics erroneously quote 1st Corinthians. The gift of discernment has nothing to do with talking to the dead. Talking to the dead is declared in the Holy Scripture as being occult practices, in Deuteronomy 18:9-13.

9 When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

A psychic does have a gift of discernment, the Holy Spirit was poured out on all of us. What is going on with the psychic is that their spiritual gifts have been hijacked by the demonic. They've been spiritually hacked so to speak. And with this they listen to the lies of the demons about this being okay with God.

When we see a psychic in Scripture, in Acts 16:16, she was a fortune teller, whose powers were identified by the Apostle Paul as being a Python spirit. He cast the demon out of her. I want to paint a picture here that God does not accept his kids to be messing with the occult. Where these psychics are dabbling in Christianity is in Universalist churches where the concept, of paganism, Christianity, and all religions exist as the same God. This is a lie and a deception. Universalism is a New Age church where the false Trinity exists. It also exists in Satanic rituals. Satan has his own second heaven, he has his false (anti-) Chirst, he is the false father, and there is a false Holy Spirit. I learned first hand in my ministry with helping survivors of the occult, the levels of deception that are involved in convincing people that God doesn't exist.

The next time you see a psychic on a paranormal show calling out to the Holy Trinity, be aware that this is not the Christian Trinity. This is a false trinity. And when the psychic drives out a demon in these shows, it is replaced by a higher food chain demon. Remember, Jesus told us about a house divided. Satan doesn't cast out Satan; he leaves a higher spirit behind. Sure the place was cleansed of the first demon(s), but now there is a bigger problem.

As a word to the wise, no Christian should be involved in the paranormal or ghost hunting. If you're seeking proof of the after life, you need to work on your soul's sanctification. As you go deeper with Jesus, you will not need to seek out these worldly things. God will provide your heart with the certitude of his actuality. Seek His presence through prayer and avoid this ghost hunting garbage.

By the way, the following are methods of divination and should be avoided completely by Christians:

  • using flash lights to turn on and off to communicate with ghosts.
  • use of psychics to investigate hauntings
  • using a spirit box or a geo box
  • using smart phone apps or digital recorders for evps
  • using a spirit board or tarrot cards of any kind, especially  angelology tarrot cards
  • using mel meters 
  • using special cameras with optics or xbox 3d sensors
