I think we’ve all been there: staring into a dark room or space and imagining frightful apparitions there.
It’s our minds playing tricks on us. A result of all the scary things we’ve ever seen in life.
My mind’s favorite imagination: a ghostly lady with long black hair, wearing a flowy white gown and floating outside the window. I’m sorry I didn’t mean to scare you -
I’m just sharing how crazy the mind can get when imagining things.
To set things straight, there’s no such thing as ghosts.
The Bible doesn’t say that the spirits of the dead can return to earth to haunt humans who are alive on earth.
However, there are evil spirits also called “demons” who are on earth - those are real.
Contrary to a popular misconception, no, they are not in hell. Only those fallen angels who committed the sin of interbreeding with the human females (read about it in Genesis 6) are being tormented in hell:
“And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 1:6-7 NKJV)
“For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;” (2 Peter 2:4 NIV)
In the verse above, the word “hell” translated in Greek is “Tartarus” which is believed to be the lowest pit of hell which the worse offenders get sent to.
Apparently the suffering there is the most painful!
Even the devil is not in hell and has never been to hell.
He is roaming about on earth and in outer space.
He will only be thrown into the lake of fire at the end of time (Revelation 20:10).
After he’s thrown into the lake of fire, he won’t be the king there, sipping on champagne while sitting on a throne and laughing at sinners burn.
He will be burning and tortured just like anyone else in the lake of fire, for all eternity.
The King of the lake of fire is God Himself, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Now that we have established the foundational truths, I want to share about my experience with the fear of the dark.
