  1. Here is an example of a military leader, not a priest, known as Judas offering up money for the atonement of sin. We can offer up our good works for the atonement of another's sin in the afterlife. Please read; 2 Maccabees 12:38-46. Expiation for the Dead. 38 Judas rallied his army and went to the city of Adullam. As the seventh day was approaching, they purified themselves according to custom and kept the sabbath there. 39 On the following day, since the task had now become urgent, Judas and his companions went to gather up the bodies of the fallen and bury them with their kindred in their ancestral tombs. 40 But under the tunic of each of the dead they found amulets sacred to the idols of Jamnia, which the law forbids the Jews to wear. So it was clear to all that this was why these men had fallen. 41 They all therefore praised the ways of the Lord, the just judge who brings to light the things that are hidden. 42 [a]Turning to supplication, they prayed that the sinful deed might be fully blotted out. The noble Judas exhorted the people to keep themselves free from sin, for they had seen with their own eyes what had happened because of the sin of those who had fallen. 43 He then took up a collection among all his soldiers, amounting to two thousand silver drachmas, which he sent to Jerusalem to provide for an expiatory sacrifice. In doing this he acted in a very excellent and noble way, inasmuch as he had the resurrection in mind; 44 for if he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead. 45 But if he did this with a view to the splendid reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in godliness, it was a holy and pious thought. 46 Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be absolved from their sin.
  2. Indeed, the Halo is "as multicultural as anything gets." But, the truth remains, the Halo is the same Christian Holy Spirit as He has always been.
  3. Psychiatry does not know the cause of schizophrenia. Modern research merely “implies” that it is a brain disorder. This is nothing but a poor educated guess. For thousands of years it has been known to be evil spirits to drive a person mad. The word madness has been changed to insanity and now to psychosis. The early treating physicians would drill holes in people’s heads to release the evil spirits. The problem with this is that evil spirits do not reside in a person’s head. And needless to say, this form of treatment killed a number of patients. Frontal lobotomies would leave patients with brain damage and yet no cure. Physicians would subdue patients with excessive electric shock and heavy drugs. Modern day treatments are much more humane. Research shows a chemical imbalance in most schizophrenics today. This would parallel cases with a history of drug abuse. The brain disorder that psychiatry has discovered is most likely brain damage caused by the abuse of some drugs. Drugs like crystal methamphetamine and crack cocaine are sins that bring evil spirits into a person’s life. The paranoid drug user believing that the cops are following them is being deceived by evil spirits who are masquerading as cops. Many cultures today still teach the truth that schizophrenia is caused by evil spirits. Psychiatry has failed to discover the cause of schizophrenia. Some psychiatrists today will tell their patients that their symptoms may be due to evil spirits. They have discovered that schizophrenia shows signs of being hereditary. This is due to a close family member having an attachment to these unhealthy spirits, and either before or after they die, the spirits go onto a familiar child and/or adult. All the symptoms of schizophrenia can be explained spiritually. Do to the enormous amount of lies, deceit, and masquerading coming from evil spirits, the patients often become delusional and psychotic. Demons use their powers to make the schizophrenic see blood coming from a facet. Vivid messages coming through the television and radio are demons speaking to the afflicted person. Research of the acts of aliens demonstrate that they are some of the fallen angels (demons) and some patients will bear witness to them. Senior bibliographer from the Library of Congress, Miss Lynn E. Catoe wrote the government document, UFOs AND RELATED SUBJECTS: An Annotated Bibliography, and summarizes her findings. She wrote, “A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomenon like poltergeist manifestation and possession. Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena that have long been known to theologians and parapsychologists.” The schizophrenic can also witness friends and family who are out of their bodies while dreaming. Good spirits are not the cause of schizophrenia. God, Jesus, angels, saints and deceased family members in heaven often reach out to help some of these afflicted people by steering them away from demons and the unhealthy human dead. This is the reason why some schizophrenics claim to have seen and/or heard God, Jesus, angels, saints and deceased love ones. It is unrighteous how modern day psychiatry unwittingly discredits the testimonies of God’s lowly witnesses. Psychology is part of the course curriculum required to become a priest. The truth about evil spirits is not being taught in today’s Universities. One hundred years or so ago, before psychiatry, the Catholic Church taught that schizophrenia was caused by evil spirits. I believe that this is no longer taught do to psychology, psychiatry, lawsuits, and the Church’s reputation. Evil spirits do indeed cause mental illnesses like schizophrenia. I believe that a healthy lifestyle, obedience to God, and some psychiatric treatment can benefit a person with this disorder. Then, Christ’s divine powers of salvaging and restoring the soul upon the death of the body will keep the believer from becoming an evil spirit themselves in the afterlife. This is a spiritual battle in which Christ and His followers face. 1 Peter 5:8-11. Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour. Resist him, steadfast, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings. The God of all grace who called you to His eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little. To him be dominion forever. Amen.
  4. You need not be so rash and condescending. Here are my thoughts on the Halo; The Holy Spirit appears to be revealing to us through the Halo that He is the breath of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God. This is not to be confused with the life Christ gives us through the Spirit of truth. Genesis 2:7. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The term “Spirit” translates the Hebrew word ruah which in it’s primary sense, means breath, air, wind. God gave man life through His Holy Spirit. I believe that the breath of life went into man’s nostrils and is located over and throughout the brain giving us life. Hence, the Halo is over the head, representing the Holy Spirit giving us life. And without the breathe of life, the brain would not function and we would have no life in this world. The breath of life is connected to our spirits by the silver cord. When the silver cord is loosed, we are cut off from the breath of life, the brain dies, we become disconnected from our bodies, and are no longer part of this physical world. Ecclesiastes 12:6-7. Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. I believe that the Halo would be the Holy Spirit’s rightful place in revealing to us that He is the breath of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God. And thus the Halo does not have to be limited to Christianity.
  5. I have witnessed many truths of the Holy Bible. I believe all the contents of the Bible to be true. I saw an apparition of Jesus when I was a 9 year old child. I have heard the voice of my Father God. I have seen the Holy Spirit. I bear witness to both fallen and heavenly angels. And, I have also seen and spoke with the dead. I have written a testimony, if you care to read it, True Story of Christ & Salvation .
  6. Understanding the spirit world requires discernment. Dreams are journeys into the spirit world and you can search your dreams for proof of it. It's good to know for the things that appear to be more confusing, that their are a great deal of powers being used in that world. “Saint Augustine of Hippo (d. 430 C.E.) left several writings clearly expressing his opinion that dreams can come from several sources: from the divine, from below, or simply from everyday life.” “St. Augustine also discusses lucid dreaming in one of his letters – as evidence of life after death.”
  7. Example: the Muslims believe that the Archangel Gabriel is the Holy Spirit. It is obvious to see, by looking at the photographs and painting of the Holy Spirit, that the Holy Spirit is not Sir Gabriel. Also, as can be seen in the painting, the Holy Spirit is appearing upon the Apostle Saint Andrews, as He appeared upon Jesus during His baptism. It's all there in Christian scripture. And the truth can not be found elsewhere.
  8. This is written to give a Christian biblical perspective on spiritual orbs. I will proceed to demonstrate how these spiritual orbs are supernatural and divine. The photographs that I will be presenting are of the Holy Spirit and some of His works. These photographs and videos have been a mystery to mankind for decades. The Holy Spirit is highly misunderstood in the world. Many have seen Him, but few have recognized Him. He is erroneously known as paranormal orbs, spirit orbs, angel orbs, and ghost orbs. Some people who have not seen orbs with their naked eyes believe them to be photographic anomalies. To understand the Holy Spirit, we must consult scripture. I will be using both the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible. Identifying the Holy Spirit This is a photograph of the Holy Spirit descending like a dove as He did during the baptism of Jesus. Here is a photograph of the Holy Spirit motionless. Below is a painting of the Apostle Saint Andrew with the Holy Spirit upon Him. The Halo is found in scripture as the Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus. The Spirit of God and the Spirit are both one and the same Holy Spirit. Mathew 3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. John 1:32. John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him.” The center photograph above is of the Holy Spirit in His spirit body form. Luke 3:22. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.” The Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus appeared as a Halo.

  9. God, using the Holy Spirit, spoke through the prophets as they were writing the Bible. K.J.V. 2 Peter 1:20-21. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
  10. Ask yourselves this one question; if I wanted someone out of hell, how could it be done? Well, we know people are in hell because their sins have not been forgiven. They were not covered by Christ's sacrificial blood atonement. If we look at both, the old and new testaments, we can see sin offerings being made for people other than ourselves. Numbers 28:30. Include one male goat to make atonement for you. Hebrews 5:3. This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people. And if we look in the book of Maccabees, we can see atonement being made for those in the afterlife. 2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin. Today, in the Catholic Church, good works are being used as atonement for those who died in mortal sin. I reiterate, "It is all the same for God to free prisoners in this world from their captives as it is for Christ to free prisoners from their captives in the spirit world." Zechariah 9:11. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. "And Christ will free prisoners in hell through you because of the blood of the covenant He has with you. This is a blessing bestowed upon us by our Lord."
  11. Sarcasm aside, the opening post came to me through my personal relationship with Father God, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (see: True Story of Christ & Salvation ). I have provided scripture and thoughtful insight to support my personal revelations and my faith. I would like to share with you an Ancient Homily that was read for Holy Saturday…the day Jesus had died on the cross. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I have. The Lord’s descent into hell “What is happening? Today there is a great silence over the earth, a great silence, and stillness, a great silence because the King sleeps; the earth was in terror and was still, because God slept in the flesh and raised up those who were sleeping from the ages. God has died in the flesh, and the underworld has trembled. Truly he goes to seek out our first parent like a lost sheep; he wishes to visit those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. He goes to free the prisoner Adam and his fellow-prisoner Eve from their pains, he who is God, and Adam’s son. The Lord goes in to them holding his victorious weapon, his cross. When Adam, the first created man, sees him, he strikes his breast in terror and calls out to all: ‘My Lord be with you all.’ And Christ in reply says to Adam: ‘And with your spirit.’ And grasping his hand he raises him up, saying: ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. ‘I am your God, who for your sake became your son, who for you and your descendants now speak and command with authority those in prison: Come forth, and those in darkness: Have light, and those who sleep: Rise. ‘I command you: Awake, sleeper, I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld. Arise from the dead; I am the life of the dead. Arise, O man, work of my hands, arise, you who were fashioned in my image. Rise, let us go hence; for you in me and I in you, together we are one undivided person. ‘For you, I your God became your son; for you, I the Master took on your form; that of slave; for you, I who am above the heavens came on earth and under the earth; for you, man, I became as a man without help, free among the dead; for you, who left a garden, I was handed over to Jews from a garden and crucified in a garden. ‘Look at the spittle on my face, which I received because of you, in order to restore you to that first divine inbreathing at creation. See the blows on my cheeks, which I accepted in order to refashion your distorted form to my own image. ‘See the scourging of my back, which I accepted in order to disperse the load of your sins which was laid upon your back. See my hands nailed to the tree for a good purpose, for you, who stretched out your hand to the tree for an evil one. `I slept on the cross and a sword pierced my side, for you, who slept in paradise and brought forth Eve from your side. My side healed the pain of your side; my sleep will release you from your sleep in Hades; my sword has checked the sword which was turned against you. ‘But arise, let us go hence. The enemy brought you out of the land of paradise; I will reinstate you, no longer in paradise, but on the throne of heaven. I denied you the tree of life, which was a figure, but now I myself am united to you, I who am life. I posted the cherubim to guard you as they would slaves; now I make the cherubim worship you as they would God. “The cherubim throne has been prepared, the bearers are ready and waiting, the bridal chamber is in order, the food is provided, the everlasting houses and rooms are in readiness; the treasures of good things have been opened; the kingdom of heaven has been prepared before the ages.” Source: Ancient Homily for Holy Saturday: PG 43, 440A, 452C: LH, Holy Saturday, OR.

  12. The following practice is based on the premise that in order for Christ’s redemptive work of salvation to be complete, and for Christ to be the Savior of all mankind, salvation must reach to all humans in all places of all times. And for God to be all in all, He must have the authority to save fallen angels as well. In both, the Old Testament and New Testament, sin offerings were made for the atonement of sins. Numbers 28:30. Include one male goat to make atonement for you. Hebrews 5:3. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. The atonement of sins were made for people before the coming Messiah who were without Christ. And thus, the atonement of sins can be made for those in the afterlife who are also without Christ. Truths that applied to the people of this world can also be applied to the people of the invisible world. Today, it is common practice for the dead in purgatory to obtain indulgence from God through the Catholic Church for remission of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven (C.C.C., X. Indulgences). So, in other words, the Catholic Church intervenes for the individual by asking God, who stores up our good works, to apply some of them in lieu of punishment due to sins. But these indulgences are limited to those who die in the communion of saints – the faithful dead only. The Churches fail to teach the complete redemptive work of Christ. Salvation must reach to all humans and fallen angels in all places of all times. Mark 16:15. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” We must learn to search scripture with the loving heart of Jesus. Lamentations 3:31-30. For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. Jesus descended into hell for three days to deliver the faithful dead with His sacrificial blood atonement. 1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel was preached also to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit. Jesus now holds the keys to death and Hades. The fallen humans and angels in hell can be saved. Otherwise, the redemptive work of Christ would not be complete and we fall short of the glory of God. Revelations 1:18. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. One of the attributes of God is that He goes unchanging. And Jesus would still hold the keys of death and Hades. He would still be salvaging and delivering the souls of the underworld. This is the one true Son of God. This is the Jesus, Christians and others should get to know. Our good works can be offered up to Christ as atonement for the sins of those in the netherworld. Atonement is necessary because they are the fallen. This completes the work of salvation. To say otherwise, is to cut short the redemptive work of Christ. 2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin. It is all the same for God to free prisoners in this world from their captives as it is for Christ to free prisoners from their captives in the spirit world. Zechariah 9:11. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. And Christ will free prisoners in hell through you because of the blood of the covenant He has with you. This is a blessing bestowed upon us by our Lord. And, it is by the power of the Son of God that salvation is carried out. 1 Corinthians 1:18. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Let’s not fail to see the significance of being able to offer up our goods works as atonement for the sins of the lost souls in hell. Your fallen family, friends, strangers and even angels without God can have their souls restored (salvaged) by the divine power of Christ and be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends in heaven. One must be in good standing with God and have the door closed to all unhealthy spirits before atonement will be accepted. Although, atonement is required of us for the forgiveness of the sins of those in hell, it is by the Lord’s sacrifice that the souls of the dead can be salvaged and that heaven and hell are open. Glory goes to Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ. It is a privilege to partake in the heavenly family business of salvation and an even greater honor to work so closely with Father God and Christ in salvaging souls. 1 Corinthians 15:19. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. Jesus is mighty to save and He will stretch His staff down to the very depths of hell to save souls. What I say is true, it has been revealed to me by both Jesus Christ (Son of God) and Father God. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, In conclusion, this, my friends, is the most loving thing you can do for these poor, lost souls. And, may God bless you for such an undertaking.
  13. In those days there were no cameras. And paintings were often used to record history. The two images above the painting are modern day photographs of the Holy Spirit.
  14. I revealed proof of the Holy Spirit in another thread. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. Here it is again...proof of the Holy Spirit. Identifying the Holy Spirit This is a photograph of the Holy Spirit descending like a dove. Here is a photograph of the Holy Spirit motionless. Below is a painting of Saint Andrew with the Holy Spirit upon him. The Halo is found in scripture as the Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus. Mathew 3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. John 1:32. John testified saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him." The center photograph above is of the Holy Spirit in His spirit bodily form. Luke 3:22. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." The Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus appeared as a Halo.
