Angry Ghost Caught On TV?

Angry Ghost Caught On TV?

Televisions crews, psychics and paranormal investigators have been flocking to a store in Gloucester, England, that seems to have video proof of the existence of ghosts.

After finding the store a mess one morning staff at Poundstretcher on Eastgate Street examined CCTV footage of the night before.

What shocked them was the sight of a ghostly figure of a Victorian woman pushing a whole pallet of goods to the ground.

A bit of research shows that the shop stands on the site of an old Theatre - The Theatre Royal, later known as The Palace. It was first opened in 1791 and closed in 1922.

There have been previous stories of a haunting in the building. One such tale tells of a young woman who, it's said, took her own life, and was found hanging from a piece of theatre equipment beneath the stage.

It's the ghost of this poor woman who staff claim to have captured on camera.

The deputy manageress of Poundstretcher, Sue Cooper, told us it's not the first time she's come into close contact with the apparition. She said, "You can often feel her presence, sometimes you can feel an icy cold. You can feel a gagging or choking, especially downstairs in the cellar."

I agree! But the store gets a million dollars worth of publicity.

That's clearly John Rhys-Davies as Gimili at the bottom of the picture you posted.

We need details about this.

The ghost was running? Where did it go? By screaming you mean it was going fast or actually making noise? How do you know it wasn't a real person?

In a world where Carpenters come back from the dead.

Anything is possible.

Yeah, that's what I used to think until I saw one. It scared me so badly I slept with the lights on for a week. I saw the person as plain as day, a solid form, that stood in the room for 10 seconds or so, then faded away. I know it was real and it really doesn't matter to me if others believe me or not.



Howdy there pops88; I just wanted to reassure you there are such things as ghosts.

Luke 24:37 But the whole group was terribly frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost!

38“Why are you frightened?” he asked. “Why do you doubt who I am?

39 Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it’s really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do!”

40 As he spoke, he held out his hands for them to see, and he showed them his feet.

41 Still they stood there doubting, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”

42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish,

43 and he ate it as they watched.

44 Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me by Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must all come true.”

45 Then he opened their minds to understand these many Scriptures.

46 And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah must suffer and die and rise again from the dead on the third day.

47 With my authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘there is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to me.’

48 You are witnesses of all these things.

Where does the spirit come from? You can get a LOT of opinions on that one. When we are resurrected, do we have a body of flesh as Jesus did when he was resurrected or do we remain a spirit? Did Jesus' body go back to being a spirit after he ascended to heaven or is it still one of flesh?

As I said, you can get a lot of different answers.

Look between the podiums, on the backdrop. People were calling the news stations, creeped out by the prominent goat in the center. It looked better live on TV.

It is formed by the way the stars are projected onto the background, converging in the center in the image of a goat. Note that in the Goat of Mendes images, the star (pentagram) is a common element.

Howdy there moog;

We're going to have a "flesh & bone" body just like Jesus has.

Look what happened to the saints of old at Jesus's death!

The Death of Jesus
Matt 27:45 At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o’clock.

46 At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

47 Some of the bystanders misunderstood and thought he was calling for the prophet Elijah.

48 One of them ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, holding it up to him on a stick so he could drink.

49 But the rest said, “Leave him alone. Let’s see whether Elijah will come and save him.”

50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he gave up his spirit.

51 At that moment the curtain in the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart,

52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead

53 after Jesus’ resurrection. They left the cemetery, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.

Thanks moog; :)

Then we have this too:

New Bodies
2 Corinthians 5

1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.

2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long for the day when we will put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.

3 For we will not be spirits without bodies, but we will put on new heavenly bodies.

4 Our dying bodies make us groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and have no bodies at all. We want to slip into our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by everlasting life.

5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.

6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord.

7 That is why we live by believing and not by seeing.

8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.

9 So our aim is to please him always, whether we are here in this body or away from this body.

10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in our bodies.

Thanks for the ping Curly Bill. I was looking for more ghost-stories - this being October and all. I have a few ghost stories to tell myself! Maybe we should have a true- ghost-stories thread closer to Halloween, where freepers can tell of their experiences!
