How do Haunted Houses Work?

Obviously, we don't believe in ghosts. But there do exist evil forces amongst us. It seems probable that spirits could attach themselves to places or objects. I'm staying in a house built in the late 1700s, and I'm getting some really weird vibes here. Anybody have any advice?

Jehovahs name is not some charm to ward off evil spirits.. take the example of Jesus's interaction with the devil. Jesus said the above words "It is Jehovah your God you must worship" take note, the devil did not flee! It's best to just say a prayer. Sure the spirits may shudder at the evoking of jehovahs name.however, If you're directly confronted by a wicked spirit it's best to take your leave..

It's interesting but quite a few times I've had nightmares involving demons and everytime I would call Jehovah's name out loud and they'd flee. My sister has had similiar dreams where she's being bothered by demons and she'd call out Jehovahs name and they'd flee. I realize they are just dreams but I do believe calling on his name is a source of protection and of course praying out loud. Yes, I agree he should leave but until then....

I was recently telling a family member about an experience I had at Henry Ford's estate when I was roughly 7-9. I distinctly remember feeling what can only be described as an evil presence while in the bowling alley. I had no idea what good and evil were, but I remember being conscious enough to know something was off. It's interesting to note that my babysitters at the time were Jehovah's Witnesses, and they occasionally took me to meetings when my mom worked late.

As for protecting yourself? Would I choose to spend time in the Ford bowling alley today? No. But if I was forced to, I wouldn't feel any fear whatsoever. I feel completely protected by Jehovah's Holy Spirit... invincible to Satan's world. That's not to say I think I'm immune from wickedness coming to my door or visiting me while I'm out and about; but as long as I'm not inviting wickedness into my life or taunting Satan, I believe I'm protected. If it finds me, I'm still protected, but it may also be my time to choose which path I take?

If there is such a thing as evil energy sticking to a dwelling where evil acts/spells were performed as some believe, maybe by bringing Jehovah's love into the room, via your positive energy and attitude, you can break any negative spells. I believe we overflow with Jehovah's love when we live according to his will. I believe we could go into the darkest room, where the most wicked activities occurred, and our positive presence could overwrite the evil.

Honestly, these forces are nearly everywhere nowadays. Even if they're not in our immediate vicinity, we're still affected by their presence in this world as a whole. So I don't feel in danger overall. They got rules to follow too. There's no bleeding cabinets here or anything. It's more of a feeling.

Here's what I have to say about this. My family was pretty much obsessed with demons. They saw them under every bed and in every dark corner. It was and is absurd. A guy that my brothers wife had dated died and they claimed the night he died, before they knew he'd died that she could hear someone trying to get into the house, they blamed the demons, and there's also the time she saw a 10 foot demon with black snake skin in her bedroom. (They had vaulted ceilings.)

I am certain a large portion of all of this is in the imagination, however, some of it I am also certain it is not. I am convinced she actually saw this demon...I'm not gonna go into why right now, but I have good reason to believe it. For one because they were both obsessed, and I think in that way you "invite" the demons in.

Personally I think the best way to handle them is to ignore them completely. They want a rise out of you, and the more attention they can get the more they will serve it up. I think the best way to "take your leave" is by ignoring them... even if you think they are in your presence, don't give them the satisfaction and that includes praying out loud. If you do that they know they have gotten to you, and that they have gotten your attention. I think the only exception is if they revealed themselves to you in some way, like manifesting themselves to you as a giant snake skinned and naked with a huge member humanoid creature (as my SIS described him) then by all means pray out loud, other than that, just ignore them. They know you know they exist...that's all the attention they deserve...and the only reason they do some of these things, is to get attention.

Good point. Don't give into their pressure. Also some of it could just be my imagination. It's an old creepy house. No one else is here but me right now. It's great in the sense that I haven't had this much alone time in over a year. I'm enjoying that part.

I wasn't going to elaborate but with this comment I guess I will...when my SIS who is, let's just say is a special kind of crazy...when she told the story of the 10 foot tall naked demon with a 12 inch member and black snake skin, the hair on the back on my neck most certainly stood up...it's happening as I type this, less than when I heard the original story, so it's more like residual creepiness, but the reason the hair stood up on the back of my neck, and I will never forget this...wasn't because of how creepy her story was...NO, it was how excited she was to tell the story!!!!!

A couple years later I was working with someone and the guy tells me he was Wicca, and when i described what she described he tells me...Oh that's "Ball"...I'm like what? I've never heard that...









then he spelled it...B-A-A-L!

Undoubtedly, IMO, probably a little of both. The demons know the history of that area, the house your in, and if it dates back that far undoubtedly, there is some tragedy attached to it. I mean the entire human race is attached to tragedy in this system. And they can and will exploit that!
That wouldn't surprise me. It used to be an old mill of some sort. Apparently the property has been destroyed multiple times in floods.

You don’t know this verse then.

Proverbs 18:10 “The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous one runs and receives protection.”

It might have been used in sorcery at times or many times. That house might be an ideal place for those who are in occult. If you can, leave ASAP if you do not want being disturbed. They may have been disturbed by your presence knowing you serve Jehovah.

I don't feel it's that serious. I feel Jah brought me here for a reason. Daniel and his friends, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were regularly surrounded by magic practitioners. Yet they weren't afraid. They even defied the king, refusing to worship his idol. Jah protected them, but even had he not they were willing to die for their faith. They couldn't just be like, "Oops. The demons are here. We gotta go." I don't even think they could have left if they wanted. I am similarly disadvantaged in the fact there's nowhere else to go. If you remember before I came here I was living in a tent. I still have that tent, too. It's just that living in a tent in Vermont is probably a bad idea. For a number of reasons, actually, and not just sub zero temperatures. At least I know the demons probably won't stab me in my sleep.

This kind of thinking is no different what so ever than superstitious thinking. And sorry...
“The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous one runs and receives protection.”
This scripture does not reduce the name of Jehovah down to some "talisman", which is what you are doing. Without the person of Jehovah the name means NOTHING! It's not the name that makes it a "strong tower" it's the person of Jehovah that is the strong tower and it's what the name represents...NOT a name you can call out as if casting a spell which is exactly what you are implying...you sound very much like my family...you should be afraid of the one who can destroy the soul, not the body! The demons have no power over us unless we give to them, and one of the best ways to give them power is through superstition!

The name of Jehovah does not give Jehovah power, the person of Jehovah is what gives the name power, people like you who do not actually understand the deeper things, you do the opposite. That is not at all what that verse means! So actually @Revvzone is correct and you are superstitious.

The power behind God's name is what it represents. Not the sounds used to carry it. When we pray in Jesus name, for example, there is nothing magical about the name Jesus. Praying in Jesus name speaks to what that name represents. It calls back to Christ, what he did, and how it made salvation for us possible. It's much more than just the name. It's a lot like saying "stop in the name of the law." We know there is nothing in the word "law" that has the power but is in what the law represents.

Exactly, but the difference is, do you have authority to enforce the law. Just like when the apostles were not able to cast out a certain demon and Jesus explained to them, it was because of their lack of faith. It was not Jesus name that gave them power it was their faith or rather their lack thereof! And in this case they actually had Jesus' authority to cast out the demon...but the demon didn't care and so Jesus had to do it. Imagine, Jesus chosen apostles even though they actually were given authority over the demons, were still unable to cast out this demon! Why? lack o0f faith. So it's not a name we call on it's our faith...or as i said before...ignore them and trust God that they cannot hurt you unless Jehovah let's them, and even then, they still have no authority over your soul!
