700 Club Interactive's Gordon Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen discuss ghost hunters, as Ryan Hendricks, the 'ghost hunter,' shares about his experiences. Read Transcript


Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WE USE

TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Terry: HI, EVERYBODY,

WELCOME TO "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

FROM GHOSTS LABS, TO

PARANORMAL STATE, IT SEEMS

LIKE YOU CAN'T FLIP THROUGH

YOUR CABLE CHANNELS WITHOUT

COMING TO A GHOST REALITY

SHOW.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT MAKES

YOU A TARGET FOR DARK

OCCURRENCES YOU CAN'T

EXPLAIN.

Gordon: WE'RE GOING TO

TAKE A LOOK AT A

SELF-PROCLAIMED GHOST

HUNTER.

WHAT STARTED OUT AS A SIMPLE

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT, BECAME

AN ADDICTION HE COULDN'T

ESCAPE.

WATCH THIS.

MY NAME IS RYAN, AND I

WAS A PARANORMAL

INVESTIGATOR.

I GOT STARTED IN THE

PARANORMAL AT SCHOOL.

WE HAD AN ENGLISH PROJECT.

I CHOSE PARANORMAL

PHENOMENON.

I DECIDED TO COLLECT MY

EVIDENCE FOR THE PROJECT

FROM THE ACTUAL SOURCE.

THE BOOK SHOWED HOW TO MAKE

BALANCING RODS, WHICH ARE

TWO RODS YOU HOLD IN YOUR

HANDS, AND THE SPIRITS WILL

SWAY THEM BACK AND FORTH TO

ANSWER YES OR NO QUESTIONS.

I ALSO GOT A QUIJA BOARD.

AND I HAD A VIDEO CAMERA.

HE HAD A BIG FASCINATION

WITH THE PARANORMAL FOR A

FEW REARS.

I TOLD HIM LEAVE IT ALONE.

IT IS DANGEROUS.

THE FIRST TIME I DID IT,

WE WERE AT MY CHURCH.

THE CHURCH WAS BUILT IN

1889, SO WE FIGURED IF IT

IS, LIKE, REALLY OLD, THERE

IS PROBABLY A LOT OF

ACTIVITY THERE.

THE FIRST QUESTION I ASKED

WAS, ARE THERE ANY SPIRITS

HERE?

AND THE RODS MADE AN "X,"

WHICH MEANT YES.

WE LOOKED UP IN THE WINDOW,

AND THERE WAS A BLACK SHADOW

THAT WALKED UP TO THE WINDOW

AND IT JUST STOPPED.

WE ASKED RANDOM QUESTIONS,

AND WE ASKED, ARE YOU A NICE

SPIRIT?

AND THE RODS, WHEN THEY

ANSWERED, THEY PULLED APART

SO FAST THEY LEFT RED MARKS

ON EACH SIDE OF MY NECK,

LIKE BLISTERS.

WE WENT TO THE CHURCH

CEMETERY, AND I STARTED

ASKING QUESTIONS TO THE

RODS, AND WE HEARD THIS

SNAPPING NOISE.

IT WAS THE IMAGE OF A GUY

WALKING OUT.

IT WAS, LIKE, A SHADOW, BUT

IT STARTED WALKING TOWARDS

US, AND SO WE RAN.

IT GOT TO BE ADDICTING.

I DID IT DURING EVERY SECOND

OF MY SPARE TIME.

THEY WERE CUSSING ME OUT AND

TELLING ME TO DO CRAP TO

OTHER PEOPLE.

I SAW THE DEMONS AND PRETTY

MUCH A LOT OF REFLECTIONS,

AND THE REFLECTION OFF OF

THE TV AND MIRRORS AND

WINDOWS.

LIKE ANYWHERE THERE WAS A

REFLECTION, THERE IS MOST

LIKELY GOING TO BE SOMETHING

LOOKING BACK AT YOU.

I JUST HAPPENED TO GO TO

CHURCH ONE DAY, ON A

WEDNESDAY AFTER I HADN'T

BEEN FOR, LIKE, SIX MONTHS.

I STARTED TELLING SOMEBODY

ABOUT THE PROJECT, AND SHE

STOPPED ME IN MID-SENTENCE

AND WAS TELLING ME HOW

THEY'RE NOT GHOSTS.

THEY'RE DEMONS.

AND HOW DANGEROUS IT COULD

BE.

AND THE ONLY WAY I COULD

ESCAPE THE DEMONIC BONDAGE

IS WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS

CHRIST.

I WAS JUST SITTING THERE

WHEN SHE STARTED PRAYING FOR

ME, AND I COULDN'T HELP IT.

I KEPT GETTING ANGRIER AND

ANGRIER.

AND SHE LOOKED AT ME, AND

SHE WAS LIKE, WHAT ARE THEY

TELLING YOU.

THAT'S THE PART THAT CREEPED

ME OUT, SO I KIND OF ENDED

IT.

I WAS SCARED TO DEATH,

SO, LIKE, WHEN I WAS DRIVING

HOME, I JUST BLASTED THE

MUSIC TO TRY TO CLEAR MY

MIND OF, LIKE, EVERYTHING

THAT WAS HAPPENING, BUT IT

JUST GOT STRONGER UNTIL I

FELT LIKE I WAS

INTOXICATED.

I FINALLY GOT HOME.

AND MY MOM HAD WOKEN UP 30

SECONDS BEFORE I ACTUALLY

DROVE UP AT MY HOUSE.

AND SHE FELT LIKE SOMETHING

WAS WRONG.

AS SOON AS I TOOK A STEP IN,

I SAW MY MOM AT FIRST, BUT

THEN MY VISION COMPLETELY

JUST FADED OUT.

I LOOKED BACK AND THERE WAS

JUST, LIKE, THE DEMON.

IT WAS MORE CLEAR AND JUST,

LIKE, EVERY DETAIL OF HIS

BODY AND EVERYTHING WAS

JUST, LIKE, RIGHT THERE.

HE JUST LOOKED AT ME AND

THEN HE DISAPPEARED.

BUT I KNOW WHERE HE WENT.

HE WENT INTO ME.

IT WAS TRULY THE MOST

PAINFUL, AGONIZING FEELING I

HAD EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY

LIFE.

I LOST ALL AND COMPLETE

CONTROL OF MY BODY.

I COULDN'T BREATHE.

I COULDN'T SEE.

I COULDN'T MOVE AT MY OWN

WILL.

I REMEMBER HEARING MY OWN

VOICE THAT WASN'T MINE.

IT WAS LIKE A REALLY DEEP,

SUPER SONIC-TUNED VOICE, BUT

IT WAS COMING OUT OF MY

MOUTH.

I REMEMBER JUST LOOKING AT

MY MOM, AND GOING TOWARDS

HER.

AND AS SOON AS I TOUCHED

HER, IT JUST STOPPED.

I WOKE UP TO RYAN JUST

ABOUT SCREAMING AT THE TOP

OF HIS LUNGS, SOMEBODY HELP

ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WERE YOU

GOING ON.

IT WAS LATE AT NIGHT.

I COME RUNNING DOWN THE HALL

AND FOUND HIS MOTHER AND HIM

AT THE FRONT DOOR.

BOTH OF THEM HUGGING EACH

OTHER.

HE HAD HIS HEAD DOWN AGAINST

HER, SEEMED HORRIFIED.

ME AND MY DAD SAT DOWN ON

THE COUCH.

HE WENT AND EXPLAINED THE

GOSPEL TO ME.

BEFORE I ACCEPTED CHRIST, MY

FACE STARTED DOING THESE

WEIRD MOVEMENTS.

AND JUST, LIKE, MOVING AND

TWITCHING AND EVERYTHING.

THE PUPILS OF MY EYE GOT

BIGGER.

DISTRACTIONS STARTED

HAPPENING AND MY DOG STARTED

MAKING STRANGE NOISES.

I SAID YOU KEEP YOUR EYES ON

ME AND LISTEN TO WHAT I'M

TELLING YOU.

HE SAID HE FELT A

PRESSURE ON THE BACK OF HIS

NECK, AND THAT'S WHEN I TOLD

HIM, DAD, YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU'RE MESSING WITH.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW STRONG

THESE THINGS ARE.

I SAID, NO, THEY DON'T

KNOW WHO THEY ARE MESSING

WITH.

I KNEW I HAD CHRIST WITH

ME.

I PRAYED TO THE FATHER AND I

ADDRESSED THE DEMONS.

I COULD LITERALLY FEEL HIS

PRESENCE BEHIND ME.

AFTER THAT, THERE WAS JUST A

WHOLE DIFFERENT FEELING IN

THE HOUSE.

AS SOON AS HE ASKED ME IF

I WANTED TO ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS MY PERSONAL LORD

AND SAVIOR, I SAID YES LIKE

THERE WAS NO TOMORROW.

I FELT THIS JOLT, LIKE

SOMETHING RELEASED ME.

I LED HIM TO THE SINNER'S

PRAYER, AND HE OPENED HIS

EYES, AND HIS PUPILS WERE

NORMAL.

I COULD SEE THE CHANGE IN

IMMENSELY.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN HOW GOOD

IT FELT TO BE FREE.

WHAT GOD CAN DO IN SOMEONE'S

LIFE IS SO MUCH MORE

POWERFUL THAN WHAT A DEMON

CAN DO ON EARTH.

I KNOW GOD IS WITH ME,

WHEREVER I AM.

SO HE IS LOOKING AFTER ME.

Gordon: HE'LL BE

LOOKING AFTER YOU, TOO, IF

YOU JUST LET HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JUST

ASK HIM IN.

HERE IS WHAT MOSES HAD TO

SAY ABOUT THESE VARIOUS

PRACTICES, WHETHER YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT IDOLOTRY OR

SOOTHSAYERS OR SEEKING

COUNSEL FROM THE DEAD.

IT COMES FROM DEUTERONOMY

32: "THEY SACRIFICED TO

DEMONS" -- THAT'S WHAT IS

BEHIND ALL OF THIS, DEMONIC

POWER -- "TO GODS THEY DID

NOT KNOW TO NEW GODS, NEW

ARRIVALS, THAT YOUR FATHERS

DID NOT FEAR."

IT IS ALWAYS THIS NEW

THING.

WE'LL GIVE YOU THIS SECRET

KNOWLEDGE AND WE'LL SHOW YOU

THINGS ABOUT THE FUTURE.

AND IT IS ALWAYS NEW, BUT IT

IS ACTUALLY QUITE OLD.

THE NEW AGE IS NOT NEW AT

ALL.

IT IS ALL OLD AND IT IS ALL

DEMONIC POWER.

HERE IS THE COMMANDMENT FROM

LLAVITACUS: "DO NOT SEEK

AFTER THEM TO BE DEFILED BY

THEM.

I AM THE LORD, YOUR GOD."

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND WHAT

HAPPENS TO RYAN, WHEN YOU

SEEK AFTER THIS STUFF, IT

CAN BECOME ADDICTIVE AND

COMPELLING.

ONE OF THE AMAZING THINGS

THAT MISSIONARIES REPORT

BACK IS THEY'LL SEE A

POPULATION COME TO KNOW

JESUS CHRIST, BUT IN TIME GO

BACK TO THEIR IDOLOTRIES

BECAUSE THEY'RE ADDICTED TO

IT.

THEY HAVE THIS FEAR IF THEY

DON'T DO IT, SOMEHOW THESE

SPIRITS ARE GOING TO ATTACK

THEM OR GET EVEN WITH THEM

OR DO THINGS TO THEM.

IN THE EARLY CHURCH HISTORY,

YOU HAD A LOT OF GREEK

CITIES COME AND COMPLAIN

THAT THE DEMONS WERE

COMPLAINING ABOUT THE

CHRISTIANS, THAT THEY

WEREN'T AS FREE TO ACT IN

THEIR CULTURES BECAUSE OF

THES FLIEWRN THES FLIEWRNS

O THES INFLUENCE OF THE

PRAYERS OF THE CHRISTIANS.

WHEN YOU CULT WIT CONSULT

WITH MEDIUMS, THE PEOPLE

LITERALLY GET DEFILED, AND

THEN IT BECOMES A COMPULSION

WHERE THEY'RE TRYING

DESPERATELY TO GET CLEAN THE

SAME WAY THEY GOT DEFILED,

AND IT NEVER WORKS.

IT NEVER GETS FREE.

IT IS ONLY THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST THAT CAN SET

THEM FREE.

HERE IS WHAT MOSES, AGAIN,

HAD TO SAY, FROM DEUTERONOMY

18: "WHEN YOU COME INTO THE

LAND, WHICH THE LORD YOUR

GOD IS GIVING YOU, YOU SHALL

NOT LEARN TO FOLLOW THE

ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE

NATIONS.

THERE SHOULD NOT BE FOUND

AMONG YOU ANYONE WHO MAKES

HIS SONOR SON OR DAUGHTER

PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR

ONE WHO PRACTICES WITCHCRAFT

OR A SOOTHSAYER, OR A

SORCEROR, OR ONE WHO

CONJURES SPELLS OR A MEDIUM

OR ONE WHO CALLS UP THE

DEAD."

THAT'S A REAL COMPLETE

LIST.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THE

THINGS IN OUR CULTURE RIGHT

NOW, WHERE PEOPLE ARE

ACTIVELY TRYING TO DO THIS

STUFF AGAIN, YOU DO SHAKE

YOUR HEAD AND GO, WHAT IN

THE WORLD ARE THEY CHASING

AFTER.

HERE IS WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY

ABOUT IT: "FOR ALL WHO DO

THESE THINGS ARE AN

ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.

AND BECAUSE OF THESE

ABOMINATIONS, THE LORD, YOUR

GOD, DRIVES THEM OUT FROM

BEFORE YOU.

YOU SHALL BE BLAMELESS

BEFORE THE LORD, FOR THESE

NATIONS WHICH WILL DISPOSE

SES, LISTEN TO SOOTHE SAYERS

AND DIVINERS, BUT AS FOR

YOU --."

AND THIS IS WHAT A GREAT

PROMISE WE HAVE, IT IS

INTERESTING THAT AFTER ALL

OF THIS LIST, THE LORD SAYS,

THE LORD YOU'RE GOD HAS NOT

APPOINTED SUCH FOR YOU.

YOU ARE NOT APPOINTED TO

LISTEN TO THE PARANORMAL.

YOU'RE NOT APPOINTED TO GO

GHOST HUNTING.

YOU'RE NOTE APPOINTED TO

HAVE A MEDIUM OR A PSYCHIC

OR GO TO TAROT CARDS.

THAT'S NOT FOR YOU.

HERE IS WHAT'S FOR YOU -- IT

IS ONE OF THE GREAT

MESSIANIC PROPHECIES IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT.

"THE LORD, YOUR GOD, WILL

RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET

FROM YOUR MIDST, FROM YOUR

BREATHERIN, AND HIM YOU

SHALL HERE."

MOSES IS TALKING ABOUT THE

MESSIAH.

FROM THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE

PEOPLE THAT GOD SET FREE

FROM SLAVERY IN EGYPT, FROM

HIM, THE VERY PEOPLE HE

ESTABLISHED IN ISRAEL, WILL

BE BORN A SAVIOR.

WILL BE BORN A MESSIAH.

AND NONE IS GREATER THAN

HIM.

AND WHEN YOU LISTEN TO WHAT

HEBREWS SAYS ABOUT HIM, IN

TIMES PAST, GOD SPOKE TO US

THROUGH THE PROPHETS.

BUT NOW HE SPEAKS THROUGH

HIS SON.

AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT

HE IS THE ONE APPOINTED FOR

YOU, HE'S THE MEDIATOR

BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, HE IS

THE PATHWAY TO THE FATHER,

HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH,

AND THE LIFE.

NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER

BUT BY HIM.

AND THEN WHEN YOU

UNDERSTAND, YOU CAN ASK HIM

QUESTIONS.

AND YOU CAN HEAR HIS VOICE.

AND YOU CAN HAVE THE PEACE

THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

THEN WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD

YOU GO TO A SOOTHSAYER.

WHY WOULD YOU GO TO SOME

DARK FORCE WHEN YOU CAN GO

TO THE LIGHT AND YOU CAN

HEAR CLEARLY WHAT HE WANTS

YOU TO DO.

AND YOU ALSO KNOW HE DWELT

ON EARTH AND HE CAME IN THE

FLESH, AND HE LEFT A RECORD

OF WHAT HE DID AND WHAT HE

ACCOMPLISHED.

AND THE BIGGEST RECORD HE

LEFT IS THAT HE ROSE AGAIN

AND WILL COME INTO YOUR

HEART IF YOU JUST ASK HIM.

SO IF YOU WANT POWER, IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR

CALLING IS, WHAT YOUR

PURPOSE IN LIFE IS, IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW THESE THINGS,

WELL, ASK JESUS.

HE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.

IF YOU WANT DREAMS AND

VISIONS, ASK HIM FOR IT.

IF YOU WANT HIM TO SPEAK TO

YOU AND TO HEAR HIS VOICE,

JUST SAY, LORD, OPEN MY

EARS, OPEN MY EYES, GIVE ME

A HEART OF UNDERSTANDING

THAT I MAY KNOW THE

GREATNESS OF YOUR POWER

TOWARDS US WHO BELIEVE.

WHEN WE COME BACK, A MOTHER

ABANDONS HER DAUGHTER IN A

CEMETERY.

FIND OUT HOW SHE ESCAPED

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: SOME PARENTS MAY

TAKE THEIR CHILDREN TO THE

CEMETERY TO VISIT THE GRAVES

OF FAMILY OR FRIENDS, BUT IN

GUATEMALA, ONE WOMAN TOOK

HER DAUGHTER TO THE CEMETERY

FOR A VERY DIFFERENT

REASON.

ARIE REMEMBERS THE DAY HER

MOTHER ABANDONED HER IN A

CEMETERY IN GUATEMALA.

SHE WAS ONLY FIVE.

MY MAMA SAID TO ME, I AM

LEAVING YOU HERE BECAUSE YOU

NEVER OBEY.

I WAS HUNGRY.

I HAD NO SHOES.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO

GO.

Reporter: WHEN A WOMAN

FOUND HER, SHE BROUGHT HER

TO A NEARBY ORPHANAGE,

SUPPORTED BY CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

THIS ORPHAN HAS BEEN HOME

TO 39 CHILDREN AND NOW HOME

FOR ARIE.

AND THE HOME HAS BEEN ABLE

TO PROVIDE FOR ARIE AND THE

OTHER CHILDREN'S NEEDS.

IT IS MUCH BETTER TO LIVE

HERE.

I AM NOT HUNGRY ANYMORE.

AND I LIKE PLAYING WITH THE

OTHER KIDS.

Reporter: RECENTLY CBN

PROVIDED NEW SHOES FOR ALL

OF THE CHILDREN, SOMETHING

MOST OF THEM HAVE NEVER

OWNED BEFORE.

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

BROUGHT THE CHILDREN A LARGE

TV SO THAT ALL OF THEM CAN

WATCH THEIR FAVORITE

PROGRAMS TOGETHER, INCLUDING

CBN'S "SUPERBOOK," WHICH IS

TEACHING THEM ABOUT JESUS

AND THE TRUTHS OF THE

BIBLE.

I LEARNED FROM

"SUPERBOOK," THAT WE SHOULD

ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Terry: CAN YOU IMAGINE

BEING LEFT ALONE AS A

CHILD?

CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE BEING

LEFT ALONE IN A CEMETERY AND

TOLD THAT IT'S YOUR FAULT

THAT YOU'RE BEING LEFT

THERE.

YOU KNOW, IN SOME CULTURES

CHILDREN ARE JUST SO

MISUNDERSTOOD, MISUSED, AND

MANY EVEN ABUSED.

YOU AND I HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BRING LIGHT

INTO THE MIDST OF THAT.

FOR THIS LITTLE GIRL TO GO

TO THIS HOME FOR CHILDREN

WAS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY

FOR HER TO FEEL LOVED AND

ACCEPTED, TO HAVE HER NEEDS

PROVIDED FOR, AND TO FIND

OUT ABOUT HOW MUCH JESUS

LOVES HER.

YOU MAKE THAT POSSIBLE WHEN

YOU SUPPORT THE WORK OF

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." SO WE

JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

AND YOU BECOME PART OF CBN,

YOU'RE MAKING THIS HAPPEN

AROUND THE WORLD.

TO ALL OF YOU, ON BEHALF OF

THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD,

WE SAY THANKS.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE PART

OF THE WORK WE'RE DOING, YOU

CAN GIVE YOUR GIFT BY

CALLING 1-888-777-1999, OR

YOU CAN ALSO GIVE BY LOGGING

ON TO CBN.COM.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO BE

ASKING YOUR QUESTIONS.

ISAAC ASKS, "CAN YOU BE

POSSESSED BY A DEMON AND NOT

KNOW IT?"

FIND OUT THE ANSWER WHEN WE

RETURN.

Terry: WE RECEIVED YOUR

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

PARANORMAL AND THE FIRST ONE

COMES FROM TIFFANY, WHO

WRITES, "I'VE BEEN HAVING A

LOT OF WEIRD ENCOUNTERS

LATELY.

I WILL BE HALF A SLEEP WHEN

I HEAR A DARK FORCE AROUND

ME.

I HEAR FOOTSTEPS AND

MOVEMENTS IN MY ROOM WHEN

THIS HAPPENS.

I TRY TO SAY THE NAME OF

JESUS WHEN THIS HAPPENS, BUT

I'VE BEEN PARALYZED.

I'VE BEEN PLEADING THE BLOOD

OF JESUS OVER MY HOME AND MY

CHILDREN.

ARE THESE ENCOUNTERS

COMMON?

AND WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?"

Gordon: I WOULD SAY

THESE EXPERIENCES ARE NOT

COMMON.

AND IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE

SPEAKING WHEN THIS HAPPENS,

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET

OTHER CHRISTIANS TO COME AND

WALK THROUGH THE HOME WITH

YOU.

WHEN YOU GET CHRISTIANS IN

AGREEMENT, AND YOU PRAY OVER

YOUR HOME, OVER YOUR

BEDROOM, AND PLEAD THE BLOOD

OF JESUS CHRIST OVER IT, AND

THEN DO MORE THAN THAT, TAKE

THE NEXT STEP, WHICH IS

COMMAND THEM TO LEAVE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE

DO -- HAVE AUTHORITY TO DO

IS, WE CAN BIND.

SO BIND AND REMOVE THEIR

ABILITY TO IMPACT YOU

ANYMORE OR APPROACH YOU

ANYMORE.

AND THEY HAVE TO OBEY.

SO GET OTHER CHRISTIANS TO

COME WITH US.

AND DO A PRAYER WALK THROUGH

YOUR HOME.

I KNOW WHEN I MOVED INTO MY

HOME, I CERTAINLY DID THAT.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE

ANYTHING THAT MAY HAVE TAKEN

UP RESIDENCE WAS GONE.

I THINK THAT'S APPROPRIATE.

AND EASILY DONE.

Terry: WELL, WE'VE GOT

ANOTHER QUESTION.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT ONE.

THIS IS FOR YOU.

BARBARA ASKS, "IF YOU WATCH

MOVIES ABOUT GHOSTS, WILL IT

OPEN DOORS IN YOUR LIFE TO

BAD THINGS?"

Terry: WELL, WILL IT OR

CAN IT?

IT WON'T NECESSARILY, BUT I

WOULD SAY THAT IT CAN.

I THINK THE BIGGER ISSUE IN

THIS, BARBARA, TO ME IS KIND

OF THE SCRIPTURE THAT GORDON

READ EARLIER, AND HE TALKED

ABOUT THE THINGS THAT ARE AN

ABOMINATION TO GOD.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS

MENTIONED IN THAT LIST, IS

ONE WHO CALLS UP THE DEAD.

AND WHY WOULD WE, AS

FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, WHO

NEED TO FOCUS AND PUT OUR

COMMITMENT AND OUR EFFORT

INTO KNOWING HIM, DRAWING

CLOSE TO HIM, HEARING HIS

VOICE, UNDERSTAND OUR

PURPOSE WHILE WE'RE HERE,

FIRST OF ALL WASTE OR TIME

WITH SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND SECOND, WHY WOULD WE BE

INTERESTED IN SOMETHING LIKE

THAT.

I THINK OUR FOCUS NEEDS TO

BE ON BEING BLAMELESS BEFORE

GOD.

HOW DO I GET CLOSER TO YOU,

LORD.

HOW DO I HEAR YOUR VOICE.

HOW DO I BE USED BY YOU.

IT SEEMS LIKE THE ANTITHESIS

OF THAT IS GOING AND

SPENDING A COUPLE OF HOURS

WATCHING A MOVIE ABOUT

DEMONIC ACTIVITY.

MAYBE THAT IS PART OF THE

PROBLEM WE SEE IN OUR WORLD

AND IN OUR CULTURE, WE WANT

TO HAVE JESUS AND JUST A

LITTLE BIT OF THE WORLD,

TOO.

YOU KNOW, WHEN THAT HAPPENS,

AFTER A WHILE, WE START

DILUTING OUR OWN COMMITMENT

TO CHRIST.

I THINK WE NEED TO GET

FOCUSED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT

BEING RIGHT ON.

Gordon: ONE THE

SCRIPTURES I LOVE TO QUOTE

IS "WHATSOEVER IS NOT OF

FAITH IS OF SIN."

IF YOU LIVE WITH THAT ONE,

THAT'S A GOOD ONE TO LIVE

BY.

Terry: THIS IS FOR YOU,

MY FRIEND.

ISAAC SAYS, "CAN YOU BE

POSSESSED BY A DEMON AND NOT

KNOW IT?"

Gordon: I THINK IT IS

UNLIKELY.

THERE HAVE BEEN INSTANCES

WHERE CHILDREN ARE DEDICATED

AND DIDN'T KNOW IT.

TO BE POSSESSED, YOU

LITERALLY HAVE TO GIVE

PERMISSION.

YOU HAVE TO OPEN THE DOOR.

AND YOU HAVE TO GIVE

PERMISSION FOR THEM TO COME

IN.

SO YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW

THAT.

AND I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE WHO

WILL MANIFEST DEMONIC

ACTIVITY IN THE MIDDLE OF A

MEETING, WHO WERE OTHERWISE

NORMAL BEFORE THE MEETING

STARTED.

BUT IN THE PRESENCE, AS

JESUS IS BEING PROCLAIMED,

THEY'LL START DOING SOME

VERY UNUSUAL THINGS.

AND PARTICULARILY IN MY

MISSION TRAVELS.

IN MALAYSIA, IN INDIA,

OTHERWISE NORMAL PEOPLE CAME

INTO THE MEETING, AND THEIR

HEARTS WERE EAGER.

THEY WANTED TO HEAR THE

GOSPEL.

BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT,

THEY STARTED WAILING AND

HOWLING.

SO I DOUBT THEY KNEW THEY

WERE GOING TO DO THAT BEFORE

THEY SHOWED UP.

SO IF YOU HAVE ANY

SUSPICION, IT IS ALWAYS GOOD

TO JUST SAY -- AND DO THIS

YOURSELF.

YOU CAN CLEANSE YOURSELF.

YOU SAY, I RENOUNCE ALL OF

THE WORKS OF SATAN.

I WANT NO DEMONIC ACTIVITY

IN MY LIFE.

I CANCEL EVERYTHING, AND I

CANCEL ANY HOLD OVER ME.

AND I COMMAND IT NOW TO

LEAVE.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, YOU'LL

FIND THE WHOLE HOST OF

HEAVEN IS ON YOUR SIDE.

AND WANTING TO HELP YOU AND

HELP YOU GET FREE.

WE'VE GOT SOME CHAT

QUESTIONS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY

THIS TOPIC SEEMS TO HAVE

GOTTEN SOME INTEREST FROM

OUR CHATROOM.

JOSEPH, WHAT DO WE HAVE?

WE HAVE DREW, AND HE IS

ASKING ARE ALL GHOSTS

DEMONIC?

Gordon: LET'S GET INTO

THE ROOT OF -- SOMETIMES

ENGLISH WORDS AREN'T GOOD

FOR TRANSLATING BIBLE

WORDS.

WHEN YOU HEAR THE TERM, HOLY

SPIRIT, HOLY GHOST, YOU'VE

GOT TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK

TO THE HEBREW, WHICH IS

RUWAC, WHICH IS A

TRANSLATION OF THAT.

AND IT COULD BE TRANSLATED

VANITY.

ECCLESIASTES, VANITY IS

VANITY.

ALL IS BREATH.

SO THESE ARE SORT OF

FLEETING THINGS, WISPY

THINGS, AND SOMETIMES WE CAN

GET THE TRANSLATIONS WRONG.

SO THERE IS A HOLY SPIRIT.

AND HE IS SOVEREIGN, AND

SOVEREIGN WITH GOD.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THERE

BEING ANGEL PRESENCE OF US.

WHEN PETER, THEY WERE

PRAYING FOR HIS DELIVERANCE

FROM PRISON, AND HE ACTUALLY

SHOWED UP AT THE GATE.

NOBODY REALLY BELIEVED IT

WAS PETER, EVEN THOUGH THEY

WERE PRAYING FOR IT.

AND THEY SAID, WELL, IT'S

HIS GHOST.

AND THE GREEK BEHIND THAT IS

IT IS HIS SPIRIT.

IN REVELATION, THERE IS THE

ANGEL OF JESUS.

HIS ANGEL, HIS PRESENCE IN

SOME TRANSLATIONS TRANSLATE

BACK GHOST.

ARE THEIR SPIRITS OF

DEPARTED PEOPLE?

AND THE ANSWER IS YES.

SAMUEL APPEARED TO SAUL, AND

SO THAT HAPPENED IN THE

BIBLE.

IT IS OBVIOUSLY INFREQUENT.

IT IS THE ONLY INSTANCE THAT

IT EVER HAPPENED IN

HISTORY.

SO ARE ALL GHOSTS DEMONS?

NO.

BUT IF YOU'RE OUT THERE

PURSUING THAT, GUESS WHO

YOU'RE GOING TO RUN INTO?

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO RUN INTO

A HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE RUNNING

INTO THE WRONG KIND.

IF YOU WANT THE BAPTISM IN

THE HOLY SPIRIT, IF YOU WANT

A DIVINE ENCOUNTER, GO TO

JESUS.

HE IS THE BAPTIZER.

AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HE

IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND

THE LIFE, AND YOU UNDERSTAND

THAT IS THE GOOD WAY, THEN

ALL OF THESE OTHER THINGS

ARE PAIL AND DARK

IMITATIONS.

HERE IS SUSAN FROM

LOUISIANA.

WE TIME FOR SOME PHONE

CALLS.

SUSAN, ARE YOU THERE?

Caller: YES, I AM.

Gordon: HOW CAN WE PRAY

FOR YOU?

Caller: I'VE BEEN

STRUGGLING WITH A DISEASE

FOR 20 YEARS.

IT IS LUPUS, AND IT HAS

CREATED OTHER ISSUES IN MY

BODY, LIKE HEART AND LUNG

AND NERVOUS SYSTEM DAMAGE.

AND JUST SYNDROMES AND A

WHOLE HOST OF THINGS THAT IS

GOING ON BECAUSE OF THE

LUPUS.

AND MY HEART IS DOING

BETTER, ACTUALLY.

MY LAST TWO TESTS, THE

EJECTION CORRECTION CAME OUT

NORMAL.

BUT I'M STILL SHOWING SOME

POSITIVE RESULTS FOR THE

LUPUS.

AND THINGS ARE GETTING

BETTER, AND GOD GAVE ME A

WORD 10 YEARS AGO, WHEN I

WAS IN CHURCH.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO HEAL

YOU.

SO I'M STANDING ON THAT, AND

ON HIS WORD, AND IT'S JUST

TAKING A LITTLE LONGER THAN

I WOULD LIKE.

SO I WOULD JUST APPRECIATE

IT IF YOU WOULD PRAY FOR

ME.

Gordon: SUSAN, I JUST

HEAR HIM IN YOUR VOICE.

AND I JUST PRAISE GOD FOR

WHAT I'M HEARING.

AND I'M HEARING A WHOLE

BOATLOAD OF FAITH.

YOU'VE GOT A LOT MORE THAN

JUST A MUSTARD SEED, SO

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE THIS

MOUNTAIN TODAY.

AND GOD UNDERSTANDS THAT

YOU'RE WEARY AND YOU'RE

TIRED, AND HE WANTS TO HEAL

YOU AND HE WANTS TH TO DO

IT RIGHT NOW.

LORD, WE LIFT SUSAN TO HER,

AND WE COMMIT HER INTO YOUR

CARE AND INTO YOUR LOVE AND

INTO YOUR HEALING.

I JUST ASK THAT YOUR

PRESENCE WOULD COME ON HER

NOW IN A MIGHTY WAY.

AND WE ASK FOR CLEANSING OF

HER NERVOUS SYSTEM.

WE ASK FOR RESTORATION OF

PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN HER

IMMUNE SYSTEM AND HER

FLESH.

AND WE JUST ASK THAT

EVERYTHING WOULD BE NORMAL

THROUGHOUT HER BODY.

WE SPEAK SPECIFICALLY TO THE

LUNGS AND TO THE HEART, AND

BE HEALED NOW.

NO MORE.

NO MORE.

NO MORE WASTING AWAY.

NO MORE WARRING AGAINST

ITSELF.

BUT NOW LET THE PEACE OF GOD

FLOW INTO EVERY SINGLE CELL

AND BRING IT INTO PROPER

ALIGNMENT.

WE BIND THIS AFFIRMITY NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND WE SAY YOU CAN AFFLICT

SUSAN NO MORE.

WE BIND YOU NOW.

YOU MUST LEAVE HER BODY.

THIS INFIRMITY BE GONE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Caller: AMEN.

Gordon: GOD BLESS YOU,

SUSAN.

A LOT OF PEOPLE PRAYING FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

Caller: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

Gordon: LET US KNOW HOW

IT GOES, AND ENJOY THAT WALK

WITH YOUR DOG.

Caller: OKAY.

THANK YOU.

GOD BLESS.

Gordon: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM

ROMANCE 12: 1: "LET LOVE BE

WITHOUT HAPPE HYPOCRISY,

ABHORE WHAT IS EVIL
