Holy Ghost Stories

Holy Ghost Stories

Around a campfire or before going to their beds, tell children a Holy Ghost Story!

A spirit or a ghost can be good or bad. We want to dwell on the good.

When I was young, we called the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost resides within true Christians. These stories describe how the Holy Spirit of God makes us triumph! Good will ultimately win over evil!

Granny Vee will include more stories in days to come.

A Ghastly Ghost Defeated

“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” was a plea from a dad,  a desperate dad who had a mute son.  “Mute” means you cannot hear.   The son could not hear the music of the harps, or the voice of his mother, or the sound of a cricket in the dark.  The boy was possessed by an unholy ghost!  This evil spirit or demon would cause the lad to fall to the ground.  He would become stiff as a board and do very unpleasant, ghastly things!  Alas!  What was the father to do?  The father loved his son and wanted to help him but no one, not even the physicians, could stop the terrible spells on the poor boy.  

One day, the dad heard of a certain rabbi.  Many stories echoed through the land that this man had the power to heal! So the father came to Yeshua, pleading for his son.  Yeshua told him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” 

That’s when the dad said his prayer, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” 

Do you think that the LORD answered this prayer?

So Yeshua spoke: “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!”

The demon ghost cried out and was cast out of the boy. The son lay on the floor seemingly dead, but Yeshua took him by the hand and lifted him up!  The boy arose!   Glory to God!  HalleluYAH! 

So there was probably a lot of celebrating in that house that evening and in the days to come!  The boy could now hear!

The Messiah defeated the deaf and dumb ghost through the Holy Ghost within Him!    

Based on Mark 9:14-29; Yeshua the Messiah = Jesus Christ

The Good News “Waldo”

The Good News “Waldo”

What do Granny Vee and Waldo have in common? Search games! Granny Vee calls them “Kooky Quests”!

Have you ever searched for Waldo in a picture book? He can be very hard to find! But I chanced upon him outside the State Capitol of Texas. (Do you know where the Capitol of Texas is? Answer below.)

“Waldo” tells the good news to people! You can read more of this good news here!

Rare photo: There is very little SNOW in southern Texas! This was the SNOWSTORM that crippled southern Texas in February 14-15 of 2021.

The answer to the question: The capitol building is in Austin. But the city of Austin is the capital of Texas. If you are speaking of the building, it is spelt* “capitol”. But the city is spelt “capital”.

Mnemonic: You may remember this as Austin is the capital with an “a”, but the old office building is spelt with an “o”!

mnemonic = something to aid in memory (don’t pronounce the “m” in this crazy word!)

“Spelt” or “spelled”: Either is correct. When I grew up, it was “spelt” and I think it sounds better, so I prefer it! But the more common way is “spelled”.
