The Truth Behind Shadow People, Explained

By June 27, 2022 Deliverance, Demons

So you also see shadow people?  Maybe it’s the ominous figure looming in the corner of your room. Maybe it’s the dark mass at the end of your hallway that’s in a human form that seems to be looking in your direction. Or, like many other people, every single time you walk up the stairs, you may feel as if something is chasing behind you. If you’ve experienced shadow people, maybe seeing an apparition out of the corner of your eye, maybe seeing something that you know has to be more than a figment of your imagination, I want to help you. You are not insane.

As a matter of fact, I’m going to help you understand what are the shadow people, why do you see them, and then how can you be free from them?

What Are They?

Let me just tell you, they are not people, they are demons.  As a matter of fact, one of the biggest deceptions is that you would believe that they are people. 

Hebrews 9:27
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The Bible says that it is appointed to us to live and then to die.  There is heaven and there is hell, there are demons and there are angels here within this realm.  

Why Are You Seeing This?

You may be experiencing these shadow people as the result of open doors of trauma in your life. Oftentimes I’ll ask people, “When did you start to see shadow people? When did you see apparitions and figures?” And it almost always coincides with the divorce of their parents, with sexual trauma, molestation, or other traumatic events that occurred. Sometimes it starts when people do experimental drug usage.  This doesn’t surprise me because in the Bible, when the word sorcery is used, it’s strictly prohibited that we are not to do sorcery.  The Greek word for sorcery is pharmakeia. Many of you know the word pharmacy because pharmakeia and sorcery, or witchcraft go together.  People say, “I started to see black masses and shadow people when I did drugs, but as the drug-induced trip ended, I still experienced shadow people.”  Yes, because it’s not just biological and physical in nature, but also spiritual.

How To Get Free

How can you get free? Go back to the place of pain and trauma.  Go back to the place of the open door. Go back to that place.

In Romans 10:9, it says “Confess with your mouth, believe in your heart that Jesus is the Savior and you will be saved.”  So you go back to that place and you allow the Lord to begin to deal with that.  And then as you get deliverance, you get freedom, you confess your sin, you allow Jesus to heal you and forgive you for the things that you experienced that opened up that trauma.  

Then I believe that you can proceed with Ephesians 6:10-13 which says, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can withstand the wiles and the attacks of the enemy.”  The last and final thing that you do is you confront the works of darkness. 

Now I’ve waited till the last part of this video to tell you that my childhood was filled with these experiences and I was absolutely terrified. I was in so much fear.  As a matter of fact, it wasn’t until I was 15 years old that I learned the secrets that I just told you. I said, “Jesus, I surrender my life to you, I belong to you, but I wanna receive your Holy Spirit.”  

Acts 1:8 says, “After the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will receive power.”  I’ll never forget because I had basically poltergeist-like experiences in my home. But if you knew the trauma, if you knew the witchcraft and things that came through family members, it wouldn’t be any surprise to you what I experienced.  I stood up, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and I’ll never forget, I confronted.  Why?  Because now I had the boldness of the Holy Spirit.

Here’s the thing: You are powerless without Jesus, but you are powerful through Jesus.  You are more than a conqueror. And so I empower you now. I encourage you to begin to step in the direction of confrontation because you don’t have to live under that spirit of fear. Jesus has come to give you love, power, and a sound mind.

Here are some additional videos I suggest if you’d like to dig deeper and get freedom:
