Angels in War

In the midst of trials and misfortune, people look and pray to the heavens to ask for help and direction. Answered prayers come in different forms and often without a minute to spare.

Many accounts in the Bible tell of angels appearing in dreams or knocking on the doors of men to warn them of dangers, to guide in their actions, and to bring God’s answer to their prayers.

These winged creatures act as mediators in the role between heaven and earth. The Roman Catholic Church refer to angels as messengers; the gatekeepers, the defenders, and troopers of God against the clutches of Satan and his demons.

It was in the year 1916 when Sister Lucia and her friends in Fatima saw the first angelic apparition on a calm day. At an early age, Lucia and two of her friends were playing when a tree nearby shook violently.  The children could see a luminous white presence that appeared from the cloudy mists.

It was an angel.

The deity was a young male who appeared transparent and of incredible magnificence. He guaranteed he was the Angel of Peace and asked them to pray with him. Lucia and her companions kept the story to themselves because, according to her, the incident itself demanded it.

But two years before Sister Lucia’s vision, a mysterious and miraculous apparition appeared to British and German soldiers in the French borders during the first world war, also known as the Great War.

British infantry, before moving up to the front line: Battle of Mons on 23rd August 23, 1914

In August 1914, The British and French powers battled the German  Deutsches Heer, who outnumbered them three times to one in the Battle of Mons, named after a city in Belgium. The British were forced to retreat not only in light of the overwhelming size of the German Army but also because of the fall back of their Allied French, exposing Britain’s right flank.

However, with certain victory at hand the German army suddenly halted their advance while the British and French troops were in full retreat. Why did this occur?

On April 24, 1915, an account describing visions of specters – angel-like beings and warriors helping the British soldiers during their withdraw in the Battle of Mons was published in the British Spiritualist.

These accounts describe an angelic army that comes to aid of the outnumbered British during the war with German soldiers. And what makes it more interesting is that both sides of the front have stories to tell about strange apparitions. One record from German detainees portrayed the presence of phantoms who resembled bowmen, led by a tall figure on a white steed, encouraging British troops as they assaulted the German trenches.

The British claimed to see supernatural beings flying over the German lines as if to inspire the French and British underdogs which it did. Other accounts insist St. Michael the Archangel (God’s defender), the Virgin Mary, and even the French saint, Joan of Arc, appeared in the battle.

Such an occasion would have raised British and French soldiers’ confidence and spirit since it would suggest God was their ally. But were there really heavenly angels during the Battle of Mons?

The YouTube link below around the 5:00 minuet mark provides an account of the Angles in the Battle of Mons, strange and unbelievable as it may seem. The video describes the barrage of heavenly cavalry warriors dressed in white, who stampeded the German armies. The German forces reportably abandoned their weapons – panic-stricken fleeing in fear and terror.

The Great War had its devastating consequences for fighters who were at the forefronts of battle. Before PTSD, (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), the expression “shell shock” portrayed those who experienced combat stress. Shell-shocked soldiers were vulnerable and displayed unstable behaviors. They were terrified, panicky, unfit to talk, walk, rest, and their reasoning declined.

Fighters on the front experienced pitiful conditions. They had no bed to sleep on, only mud, by a trench filled with decaying bodies. Exhaustion from battle and the absence of rest incurred significant physical and mental damage on the weary fighters. Because of this, hallucinations were common among these men. Were such visions merely hallucinations born out of the misery of war?

Or was this story propaganda to boost the spirits of the troops and the general population? It is a fact the Allied forces endured heavy losses during the early course of the war. An account of divine intervention would have encouraged  the masses and general well-being despite the horor of war. Arthur Machen who was a Welsh essayist published his story, “Bowmen” in a London daily paper on September 29, 1914. When readers asked for bits of proof, he maintained that the story was purely imaginary.

Others say even alleged eyewitness accounts are from different obscure sources. The years have gone by now without  modern scientific studies.We may never know what exactly flew over the skies of Mons Belgium during the first war of August 1914. But it is captivating to consider angels crusading for justice in the heat of battle.

Regardless of whether it is valid, the narrative of the heavenly apparitions seen in the Battle of Mons brings one to contemplate the struggles we deal with each day. We, too, have demons to face in this modern world.

We can only wonder if Angels are real and if they are, are they watching over us?

A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder – you can only see it in the photo

A Scottish resident took a photo of an abandoned building, and then could not believe his eyes when he looked at the finished photograph. From there the woman’s face was looking at him, but the man is sure: there was no one in the ruins of the house. Finding an explanation for what he saw was not easy.

A photographer from Scotland, who wished to remain anonymous, decided to arrange an unusual photo session, Unilad writes.

His choice fell on several abandoned buildings that are located in one of the parks in the North Ayrshire region. After taking a couple of pictures, he went to the studio to print them, and then looked at the finished result.

The negative of one of the photographs of the photographer

Mysticism often happens in abandoned buildings , and the case with a man was no exception. In one photo, the Scotsman saw the ghostly silhouette of a woman looking at him from a window. However, the man assures that there was no one in the building, and he was alone in the ruins.

During the shooting, I did not feel anything unusual or anything otherworldly.

Despite the fact that the woman’s face looks intimidating, he is glad that he managed to capture it. Moreover, the hero of the story shared the frame with all friends who adore mysticism and riddles.

Pay attention to the left window

I’m happy that I was able to capture something that looks like a ghost. I am even proud to be able to show photos to people who love riddles.

Many people, according to the photographer, are inclined to believe that this is a ghost, who love to talk to children so much, although the author of the picture himself is in no hurry to draw conclusions. He even looked at the frame under a microscope, but never came to the truth.

You can, of course, speculate, but the human brain makes us see familiar traits everywhere, especially if we look at them long enough.

Moreover, the photographer, according to him, does not really believe in ghosts and other mystical phenomena.

I don’t like the term paranormal. As for ghosts, I don’t know if they exist. I don’t even know how to define them. What is it? Energy?

Camera recorded an extraneous movement in Massachusetts. And this sight is not for the faint-hearted

A Redditt user with the nickname grandslammer0891 from Mansfield, Massachusetts, posted a video from security cameras at a friend’s house, which scared him and left users in disbelief.

The author of the video explained that his friend left home by the end of August, leaving four huskies in the care of a friend. He usually visited them during the daytime.

One day the owner of the apartment received a notification in the middle of the night that the camera recorded some kind of extraneous movement. At that time there were only dogs in the house.

The video captured the kitchen and part of the living room. A dog is lying on the sofa in the right corner, and you can trace the turns of the head by its ears. When her ears turn to the left, then in the dark you can see the transparent figure of a moving person.

The video puzzled users and caused a mixed reaction from them. Some could not find an explanation for what they saw and panicked slightly. The dog’s head turns towards the ghost, which suggests that it also noticed the apparition.

“What is it, I saw it … with my own eyes. Does anyone else see this? Because it seems to me that I definitely saw something wrong. No no”.

Others decided that a man had walked past the window on the right, and his shadow flashed on the left in the headlights. Some users even believe that a live person got into the frame.

“I hope your buddy has a gun. There was a real intruder. “

Some readers agreed that the ghost video is quite plausible, since Massachusetts is full of ghosts.

Paranormal researcher warns that Ouija boards can summon dangerous demons

Paranormal researcher Paul Marsters criticized British retailer Poundland for selling Ouija boards as part of Halloween decor. He warned that only professional mediums should use the boards, and ordinary people can summon deadly demons. 

Paul, who is a member of True Paranormal Events UK, was stunned when he saw a £ 1 ($ 1.29) Ouija board in a local budget store.

 “Ouija boards are definitely not toys and should not be available to children to buy in stores on Halloween, let alone adults who are not trained in how to use them. It doesn’t matter if they are plastic or wooden ”, – quotes the words of the ghost hunter Hull Live. 

Paul Marsters explained that people can accidentally summon dangerous spirits that will torment their victim in the future and may even lead to suicide. 

“On Halloween night, the veil on the spirit world is very thin, and people only buy these boards for Ouija sessions on Halloween, so I’m afraid to imagine what will happen when these boards are in the wrong hands,” the expert said. 

Poundland noted that Ouija boards can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age. This item sold out quickly before Halloween due to its popularity.
