According to Wikipedia the definition of a Poltergeist is:
In folklore and parapsychology, a poltergeist (German for "pounding ghost") is a type of ghost or other supernatural entity which is responsible for physical disturbances, such as loud noises and objects being moved or destroyed. They are purportedly capable of pinching, biting, hitting, and tripping people. Most accounts of poltergeists describe the movement or levitation of objects such as furniture and cutlery, or noises such as knocking on doors.
They have traditionally been described as very troublesome spirits who haunt a particular person instead of a specific location. Such alleged poltergeist manifestations have been reported in many cultures and countries including the United States, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and most European nations. Early accounts date back to the 1st century. The first reported poltergeist was in Germany in 856 A.D."
It's never good when a poltergeist is involved. But of course you have to verify this first. Sadly we just can't take the word of the client without digging a little ourselves as researchers. A lot of questions and interviews need to take place from any witnesses and family background. It's very sad that some people will cry wolf just to have somebody come out because they think it would be cool to have people come in like they see on TV. This is no lie. Prayer is needed and spiritual warfare too. It's pure evil in my humble opinion.
It also has been referred to by definition as a "noisy ghost." No one knows for sure. Like I've said before there are just some things we are not going to be privy to until we cross over. But It's not a pleasant experience at all. These things are dangerous they are not harmless. I've seen cases where it's not always a teenager/minor, repressing negative emotions, I've seen it with adults. You're probably wondering where do they come from? What attracts them? Can it hurt me? Can people get rid of it? I'll do my best to answer these the best as I can. It's all from a biblical point of view so every one will have different opinions. I feel that it is possible that if a teen or pre teen has a lot depression anger and things to that nature the child can in advertently cause a creation that manifests these things whether it be subconsciously or not. It's hard to say how this works. No one knows.
A poltergeist is slick and tricky. When it does let itself be known the disturbances start out seemingly minor with possible explanations. just to give you a few examples..........cabinets opening on their own, random items move by themselves or doors opening and closing. However, in time the activity will only increase in a severe way, eventually resulting in violence. Mental trauma usually also occurs as a result.
It's been said they usually stick to one person, generally women and they hang around for about 3 months however, there are cases where they have gone within a few days and cases where they have somehow stuck around for years. You just never know. We have no clue what we are dealing with exactly. How far can things really go? Can someone be murdered? I get that question a lot. I say the Lord controls the world. Nothing will happen that isn't supposed to when speaking of politics. But I respect all opinions.
Poltergeists are evil and I believe from the lower realms. From what I'm told the power they have is unbelievable, they have the ability to chuck things like wardrobes, chairs etc, they ere capable of just about anything, unless you have witnessed it then it is very hard to believe that they do exist in this world. I read in the 1930s that distinguished psychic researcher and psychologist Dr. Nandor Fodor, set forth the most popular theory; that poltergeist phenomena was not caused by ghosts but by individuals repressing intense emotions such as anger, hostility and sexual frustration.
PHILIPPIANS 2:10 NKJ
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.
Notice that it is at the Name of Jesus, not just to the person of Jesus, that every knee will bow. As true believers in Jesus Christ, we are members of His body, and joint-heirs in His authority.
LUKE 10:19 NKJ
19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
We have authority, which if used, will insure that nothing shall by any means hurt us. The choice and responsibility is ours. What wonderful news. Jesus has our back. No need to panic. Just pray everyday. Develop a personal relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ.
