Since Halloween is fast, and approaching us on October 31, people are fascinated by ghouls, witches, goblins, jack-o-lanterns, horror movies, and ghost. The fascination of ghost in America, has actually gone to another level, people are being indoctrinated by paranormal television shows, such as Ghost Hunters, Celebrity Ghost Stories , Ghost Adventures, Being Human, Ghost Adventures: Aftershocks, these shows are viewed by millions of people each week.
With the popularity of paranormal ghost shows on television in the United States, it should be no surprise that 45% of Americans now believe in ghost. But are ghost really dead departed souls or something more sinister? Let's examine what occultist viewed ghost as, and how the Early Christian Church viewed the subject of ghost.
Famous Freemason Philosopher and Occultist Manly P. Hall on Ghost
In his book, "Secret Teachers of All Ages," Famous Freemason Philosopher and occultist Manly P. Hall had this to say:
"The majority of modern mediumistic apparitions are but elemental creatures masquerading through bodies composed of thought substances supplied by the very persons desiring to behold these wraiths of decarnate beings (source)."
So Hall states a fact that these beings aren't departed human souls, but indeed a spirit entity masquerading as that person's departed spirit.

Early Christian Theologians on Ghost
Here is what Tertullian had said in his writings as follows:
"You who serve stones, and ye who make image of gold, and silver, and wood, and stones, and serve phantoms, and demons. Tertullian 1.4
What Tertullian was stating that demons took on the guise of idols, nature spirits,, and phantoms(in which in the Greek is for Ghost).
Treatise of the Soul 1.57 - "Magic and sorcery only seem to raise the dead. Only God can really raise the dead. The medium of Endor could not have raised Samuel, it was a trick of her demon. Ghosts can't appear to people, only demons."
Divine Institutes 4.27 - Even the Greek gods flee when the name of Jesus is used. If a god is commanded to tell the truth it confesses that it is a demon. If one calls up Jupiter or one of the other from the dead, they would confess they were men and not gods and that there is only one true God. The spirits that pretend to be them lie.
As we can see from the writings of occultist Manly P Hall, and the writings of Early Christian Theologians one thing that both agree upon that ghost are really demon spirits that masquerade as the departed spirits of dead human beings who once lived upon the Earth.These are demonic spirits
of deception, their main goal is to deceive mankind, and lead people astray from YAH (G-d).
The Bible Refutes the Belief of Ghost Being Departed Human Beings Spirits that Roam the Earth after Death
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

The latest example of extreme persecution is being conducted by the militant extremist Muslim group ISIS in Iraq. This group is currently beheading and butchering Iraqi Christians to death (source). Back in 2011 Islamic Extremists in Somalia beheaded a 17 year old Christian boy vowing to rid Somalia of Christianity (source). However, ISIS has taken it to another demonic level by its beheading and genocide of Christians. Why is ISIS so focused on beheading Christians? What spirit is driving them to cause such atrocities against Iraqi Christians? Let's explore what drives Muslims with such hatred to behead both Jews and Christians.
Hatred and Beheading of Jews
In the year 627 A.D. the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, mass-slaughtered Jews. He and his army took over the Jewish village of Bani Qurayzah. They dug several trenches and forced between 600 to 900 men to step inside where they were beheaded (source). Soon afterwards Muhammad enslaved the women and children of Bani Qurayzah (here).
