Spiritual meaning of smelling sulfur
The first historical reference to sulfur tells of the rain of destruction from the sky in the form of fire and sulfur over the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (Ge 19:24; Luke 17:29) Based on geological testimony, some believe that this catastrophic execution by Jehovah was possibly caused by a volcanic eruption in the southern region of the Dead Sea, which would explain the abundance of sulfur in that area today.
It is believed that ancient Jerusalem had a high-temperature burn, or crematorium, which was achieved by adding sulfur to the fires that always burned in the Hinton Valley (Gehenna) outside the walls.
Since the burning judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah in 1919 B.C., Scripture has often referred to the highly flammable nature of sulfur. (Isa 30:33; 34:9; Rev 9:17, 18) It is a symbol of total desolation. (Deut 29:22, 23; Job 18:15) When the Bible describes utter destruction, the expression “fire and brimstone” usually appears. (Ps 11:6; Ezekiel 38:22; Rev 14:9-11) We are told that the Devil will be thrown “into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone,” meaning “the second death” or complete annihilation. (Rev 19:20; 20:10; 21:8.)
The smells of mold, rotten eggs or sulfur, and spoiled food are often associated with unhappy, unfriendly spirits or even demons. These odors are often associated with entities other than loved ones. Many demonologists claim that the smell of sulfur is clear evidence of the presence of demons.
If you think you have experienced this phenomenon, you can answer specific questions to help better understand what message they may be sending you:
Is it a pleasant smell? Is it a familiar smell? Are you experiencing particularly difficult or joyful events in your life? Who can contact you, and why? Is it an unexplainable smell?
There are olfactory disorders that can be confused with this paranormal activity.
Parosmia is a distortion of smell and should be taken into account whenever a specific sudden and unexplained smell appears. This disorder is capable of confusing one smell with a different one.
It is also known that certain odors can be trapped in fabrics, works of art, and even in wooden surfaces and that they can be activated months, and years later, or even with a change in humidity, temperature, or barometric pressure. So nothing can be ruled out when it comes to diagnosing whether they are ghostly smells or have a rational explanation.
This happened to me a little over a year ago. My great-grandmother, who had died when I was very young, and who did not remember her features, only something cloudy, came to me in a dream. But in that dream, I could see her clearly, not a blur. She asked me about my mother (who has been living abroad for many years). He asked me how she was if she was all right. I explained her situation, and she thanked me for talking to her. A few days later, I looked for a picture of her in my grandfather’s belongings, and it was just as I saw it in the dream, with all its apparent features.
To the point, and this is where this phenomenon occurred. I received a call from my mother months later, saying that she was in the salon and clearly perceived the strong smell of the hair spray her grandmother used every day. A very characteristic odor from her. In her house they didn’t use hairspray, the windows were closed so that I couldn’t explain it. When she told me, I didn’t hesitate to describe my dream.
And this is all I know about this curious subject. I hope you liked it and didn’t find it too heavy.
Soon more but not better, because it’s impossible…
