A note from Kristine:
What is recounted here for you is the final portion of my testimony which explains how I went from being a Christian witch, medium, and ghost hunter to a re-committed Follower of Jesus Christ after listening to an audio clip recorded during a paranormal investigation (ghost hunt) which I participated in late November 2007. As I've spent the last year sharing my testimony and this story with youth groups, women's events, church's, and a Christian music festival one question has continued to be asked.
"Do you still have the audio?"
When they learn that I do, many people ask if I can share the audio. My response to this question has always been not to do so.
My greatest desire is to share the amazing, saving grace and power of God through Jesus Christ. Because this audio is actually an EVP from a legitimate paranormal investigation I have worried it would take away from the message I'm trying to get across and actually promote ghost hunting, mediums, and interest in the occult.
That is the last thing I want.
However, after prayer and consideration (and the reality that the audio could be made available in the next couple of months through an interview with the 700 Club) my husband and I have decided to share the audio clip on Kristine ReMixed with the original post published last year which eventually became a chapter in my book. It is being made available only as a witness to what moved me to personally reevaluate my spiritual condition and repent of my sin.
My prayer is in sharing this audio, God will be honored as you read about the experience which led me back to Christ and illustrate the amazing authority and power of our Savior. I pray this testimony will encourage Christians and draw others to a relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
When Demons Scream
Thom was away, working in Georgia for eight weeks, when I got the call from my ghost hunting team. We were doing an emergency investigation a few days after Thanksgiving 2007. My job, as a medium, was to go into the environment and give a reading. No prior details, other than the address, would be given. I would conduct a videotaped walk through of the area. The team would then concentrate or hold "vigils" in the areas designated as "hot spots". As a Christian Witch/Medium, I also offered home blessing, cleansing, or prayers if the clients requested or desired it.
That particular night I sensed a very hostile spirit in the home. I won't go into the particulars of the reading, but suffice it to say I understood this to be a demonic (what I called at the time "inhuman") spirit being. The team xperienced some odd activity in the area where I sensed this presence most strongly. At one point I commanded the spirit to leave in the name of Jesus. Later I offered prayers for the home.
A few days later, the team leader emailed me an audio clip from the investigation. The team I worked with was very serious about paranormal investigation. Everything we did was from a desire to help people experiencing frightening or unexplainable events. We went in to every location armed with digital recorders, cameras, and other equipment. Often when an interesting EVP (electronic voice phenomena) was recorded the team leader would send it to me. As a group we were always very excited when we got some interesting bit of evidence from an investigation. This time was no exception as the admonishment in the email was "Listen to this!"
Donning my head phones I played the short clip.
Over the two years I worked with the team I heard a number of interesting EVP's (electronic voice phenomenon) from investigations. Ghostly whispers recorded when no one was in a room, strange knocks or taps. I can honestly say I've never heard anything quite like what was on this particular audio.
The file began right after I commanded the "inhuman spirit" to leave the house in the name of Jesus. I'm recorded saying "You're uninvited!" after which the team leader quipped "You can't follow me home." Suddenly you hear what can only be described as an angry shriek followed by a loud thump. Honestly, it's one of the weirdest things I have ever heard. As I sat there and listened to the audio clip over and over, I was completely stunned. Believe what you will, but I knew what I was listening to was the scream of a demon reacting to the name of Jesus.
I was as self deceived as a Christian could be...but Jesus was still with me. Even coming from my lips, the authority and power of His name would still make demons scream and flee.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
It was as if a veil had been placed over my head all those years and someone had suddenly yanked it off. The room had been dark and someone finally switched on a light.
I spent the next day or so reading my Bible...truly reading it, asking the Holy Spirit to speak to me through His word...and He met me there. I read all the verses about witchcraft, mediums, consulting psychics, divination. I read the gospels and was particularly moved by Matthew 6:22-23 (NLT).
“Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!"
I got down on my face before God and repented of everything, praying for hours, weeping, confessing, and rebuking demons I'd allowed into my life and family.
God's mercy and grace delivered me. My life is centered firmly in Jesus Christ.
I don't know what more I can say to people about the reality behind paranormal activity other than to say stay away from it. Why would you want to get caught up with a mess of demons? Because of the spookiness of the dark? The thrill of the unknown? Friends, please believe me, there is so much more to see and do in the light!
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
