Why I Write About Demons

One wonders why I write about demons or spiritual entities. Isn’t that just asking for them to come into your homes and cause you harm or issues? Many Christians steer clear of researching this content because quite frankly it’s taboo in many churches.

 

While I agree one should not invite these entities in, I also believe we should understand the enemy and his snares. It is a double-edged sword, in my opinion.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, The Art of War

With this in mind, two things must occur in dealing with the supernatural.

  • Know yourself to be saved by grace, through Christ.
  • Know you are indeed not only in a battle with the enemy but also within his current control here on Earth, through the flesh.

This is why I am attempting to convey information through stories, ECT. Providing some insights to the reality we are currently in. There is a spiritual battle.

 

Fast forward: I was recently watching a video, created by Rob Skiba and there was an interesting comment during the discussion. While it was a sidebar comment, it really had me thinking the deeper meaning behind it.

The side conversation was something like this:

In the Garden of Eden when Adam took of the tree of knowledge, why do you think it was an act of mercy to kick him out before he ate from the tree of life?

Because, if he had eaten from the tree of life, after eating from the tree of knowledge, he could never be redeemed. He would live forever in sin.

While this may seem obvious to some, it really struck me.

The angels (sons of God) were made eternal. When 200 of them dropped in on Mount Hermon and sinned against God, by cohabiting with the daughters of men, they erred greatly. So much, those angels were given a unique and dramatic punishment.

Angels cannot be redeemed. At least I find no-where in the Bible a possible redemption pathway for them.

Adversely, mankind was provided redemption through the sacrifice of Christ. This is why it is very important to understand this. We as mankind have only this short lifespan to accept that gift prior to physical death. That choice will determine our own eternal habitation.

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27

The enemy knows this. The enemy knows that it has already lost, and is trying to deceive as many as possible to not take that gift from the creator. These snares come in the form of a wide variety of keeping busy, entertained, rabbit trails, in-fighting, ECT.

So yeah, I am looking into our current physical, worldly issues, and bringing focus on the spiritual battles being played out behind the scenes. This is why I partly wrote Sight and Sound, and working on Trauma.

Most would more likely choose a paranormal novel to read (as entertainment) as opposed to hearing a sermon. Perhaps I can provide that entertainment, while also planting seeds conveying this material world is only one piece of the larger picture.

My attempt to bring light into the dark world.

Sheol or Hell

I came across an interesting question that was posted on a forum.

The question was, “Do you think hell is real? Can a person’s actions really determine if they will enter hell after their death?”

To this day, people are still inquiring about the after-life, and if our actions today will affect it. So, I had to post a response to the inquiry. My reply is below. My current novel,Sight and Sound takes a peek in the spiritual world. It is my thought, your worldview reflects on how you perceive the after-life and the actions you take currently. Thoughts?

My reply:

I lean more toward the traditional Christian worldview. Hell was created and intended for the fallen angels. The lake of fire is for Lucifer (Satan), the false prophet, and the beast. That being said, there are two different destinations for us and them.

There are some reported to have seen hell it while nearly dead or officially dead and returned. The amount of these sightings cannot go unnoticed.

I suggest they were not in hell, rather hades. I place for those unsaved souls.

It would fall under the mythological tales regarding the underworld, or place of the dead. I would also fall under the biblical term Sheol, a place of darkness where the dead go. Biblically

Sheol held both the righteous and unrighteous. Prior to Christ’s crucifixion, Sheol was divided into two parts. One area dedicated for the unrighteous. This is in reference to the rich man in Jesus parable. The other area dedicated for the righteous, called Abraham’s bosom. This is in in reference to the beggar in Jesus parable.

After Christ’s crucifixion, Jesus entered into Sheol and removed those righteous, while informing those in hades the news of redemption. This is believed to have occurred while he was “in the tomb” for three days.

Now Sheol or hades is reserved for those not accepting Christ as their savior. The change was due to the new covenant (New Testament) from Christ on the cross.

Sight and Sound Novel’s Forward

Before the introduction of flesh, there lived another race. These entities were not flesh born, rather brought about by light, fire, and the heavenly bodies. The creator of these entities viewed them as his family.

 

All was well until the creator expanded his creation to man. This new creation could not live in the higher dimensions, as the original race of beings. So the creator had placed man in the four dimensions of time and physical space. The original entities lived outside of this volume of space and marveled at the flesh born. Originally, the two races worked together. However, there rose an army of 200 celestial beings that made a pact among themselves. They fell from their dimension and became flesh. They took men’s daughters as their wives. These 200 had leaders, but all were viewed as gods and had children.

These were those men of renown.

The 200 and their children brought man into captivity. These grew to fight against the armies of the creator. This caused a division between the two opposing sides. The war was made and war continues to this very day. The leaders of the 200 were defeated by the armies of the creator and thrown into prison. Before their fate, they were made to watch as their children were made to fight among themselves, then destroyed in a great flood. Now the children, having no place in the heavens or earth were trapped between dimensions of reality.

 

Through the ages, men forgot about this war. Stories of gods having children became myth. The idea of a world flood became an argument. Those children trapped found no peace throughout time. Their torment is paralleled with their hatred of the flesh born. Their desire was to return to space and time. They wished to live again as kings, queens, and gods.

Over time, communication would be made between those trapped and the flesh born. Through deception, the enemy promised to give those fleshborns the ancient secrets. Through that communication, men have begun to build a bridge and slowly weaken the prison wall. Over time men have worked with those in prison to unleash them. Unknown to man, they were helping in their deception. A select group of men began working on a project for the means to aid the enemy’s return to our physical reality. Unknowing they were to be enslaved.

With the veil being weakened, some of these hybrid children can inhabit the flesh by will. Some must be asked through rites and objects touched by their fathers. One way or the other, every hybrid child is part of the war to reclaim the physical realm.

Their end goal is to first reclaim the Earth, then release their fathers from the darker prisons.
