Apports, Deports, Translocation, and Dematerialization

Let’s start with a few terms and their definitions.

Apport is a word to describe the sudden appearance of an object, such as an object appearing in a room with closed doors.

Deports are the opposite of apports. It means to carry away, or make disappear.

Translocation is when suddenly a person becomes invisible and reappears in another place: they translocate.

Dematerialization is the ability to make one’s body disappear.

Why in the world am I covering this? Well, there have been reports about valuables or items disappearing seemingly out of thin air. One woman, who was/is going through a lot of spiritual warfare, related to me that she placed her purse on the chair next to her at a restaurant but turned missing. She said she didn’t believe any person in the restaurant could have taken it. She even reported it missing, and when they checked the surveillance video they said they didn’t see anything.

Now, I don’t know if it is the case that her purse was taken away somehow by any supernatural means or supernatural entity. I wasn’t there. But even though I have never personally experienced something like this, I do believe it is possible. However, I am very conservative about all of this, and I would always look to other explanations for a missing item before any supernatural explanation.

Now let’s look to the Bible. There were events that seem to be apports recorded in the Bible. For instance, when Jesus fed thousands of people beginning with just a few pieces of fish and bread but was left with 12 basketfuls of leftovers (Matthew 14:13-21). That seems to be a case of an apport by the power of God. An example of translocation is when Philip was carried away by the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:39). We know the devil can imitate many of God’s miracles (for instance Pharoah’s magicians imitating many of the miracles of God via Moses), but can he counterfeit such a miracle as apport, deport, translocation, and demarterialization?

Let’s read what the late Kurt Koch, a Christian theologian who had over 40 years of experience in dealing with the occultly subjected, wrote:

A minister told me of a visit he had received from three spiritists. One of the spiritsts held out his open hand toward the minister and said, ‘Now, look carefully.’ The same moment, several red, precious stones appeared in the spiritist’s open hand. It was not a trick. The stones did not come from his sleeve. The spiritist said, ‘These are gifts from our friends on the other side. In a few minutes they will disappear again.’ The minister watched carefully. Several minutes later the stones disappeared.” (Occult ABC, 224-225)


In the second example the apport remained. The house of a farmer, whom I knew, was burned down. He had to put his tractor in his neighbor’s barn. When the farmer whose house burned down went to collect the tractor, the engine would not start. The tractor was towed to a repair garage. The cylinder block was opened up. Inside the cylinder was an iron object. The mechanic wrote to the tractor’s manufacturers and said there must have been a fault in the construction , since the block of the new tractor had not been opened before. A fitter from the factory came and said that it could not have been a fault at the factory. There were no objects like the one found in the block in the factory.

An argument ensued about the object. The cylinder block had not been opened either by the owner or by his neighbor. The farmers would not have been able to do so. No one at the garage had opened it, for the tractor had been bought only a short time previously. Where had this object come from? The owner informed me and asked my advice. It turned out that in the house in which this remarkable apport had taken place spiritism had been practiced for generations” (Occult ABC, 225).

One example of deport is in the following:

For years a Frenchman repeatedly came to me for counseling. He had originally been a magician and spiritist, and possessed strong psychic powers. Little by little he was freed from spiritism. He confessed all his sins, surrendered his life to Jesus, and in my presence renounced the powers of darkness. Yet he did not become completely free through his conversion. Remarkable deports manifested themselves. Money disappeared from a locked cashbox to which no one had a second key. 

From the other end, strong spiritists have admitted that they are able to steal money. I have examples of this from Switzerland and from England.” (Occult ABC, 225)

Now let’s take a look at translocation, which is a change of place by employing demonic powers. Koch shared his accounts of hearing such accounts from missionaries.


In Japan I was told that there are a few Shintoist priests who possess demonic powers. They have the power, given them by Satan, to dematerialize on the top of one mountain and to reappear a few minutes later on the top of another mountain. When one hears such a story for the first time, one dismisses it as pure fantasy. I, however, have heard such stories on every continent except Europe and North America. Civilization does indeed drive out things of this sort. Satan’s intrigues are broken still more by the preaching of the gospel.” (Occult ABC, 249)

In India I have heard stories about translocation from reliable and responsible witnesses. Indian sorcerers can cross rivers by means of spiritist translocation. 

This is a demonic counterfeit of the miracle which took place when Jesus walked on the Sea of Galilee. There is no miracle in the Bible which the devil does not try to imitate.” (Occult ABC, 249)

I was told by a missionary in Ecuador that his cook possessed the powers of translocation. One day the missionary noticed that there was no flour, although this was needed for the midday meal that day. The cook said, ‘That is no problem. I will soon bring some!’

‘How will you manage to do that?’ asked the amazed missionary, ‘It is about ten miles to the town.’

‘Just leave it to me. I know about these things.’ A few minutes later the cook had returned with the flour he needed. After much questioning, he explained to the missionary the phenomenon of ‘riding on the wind,’ another name for translocation.” (Occult ABC, 249-250)

The most impressive and best attested example I have is from Haiti. This island is well known as a stronghold of Satan, being renowned for voodoo. When I was lecturing in Haiti, I heard some most remarkable things. An American missionary, who had been working in Haiti for fourteen years, told me some of his experiences. I will recount one example of riding on the wind. 

A voodoo sorcerer wished to send a letter to a colleague, who lived some one-hundred-fifty miles away. He sent his boy off with the letter. When he had gone about a hundred yards from the house, the boy became invisible. About one half an hour later, he had reached the colleague’s house. The sorcerer wrote a reply. About two hours later, the boy had returned with this reply. He had covered about three-hundred miles without any means of transportation. The letter of reply was the evidence that the boy had been there. 

Missionaries who have to do with such sorcerers know that such things truly take place. It would be wrong, however, to jump to any conclusions. Sorcerers with powers like these are very rare, even in pagan areas.” (Occult ABC, 250)

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”

    I used to work in an outdoor museum in Europe for one summer. I worked in a small souvenir shop that was run in one of the old peasant houses the museum consisted of. I would sit alone in one room for eight hours a day and sell stuff. I wouldn’t step away from behind my salestable and the way the cash machine was situated made sure nobody could have an access to it without me noticing.

    Now more than once I still had money disappear from the cash machine. I would count the money maybe twice a day plus when I left in the evening locking the house after me, and at the end of the shift there would be a significant amount of money less in the machine than when I last counted. I would ask coworkers to come in and count the money for me, and they all got the same result as I did. I checked carefully everywhere, and no money had fallen on the floor or inside the cash box or anything like that.

    I left a certain amount of money in a safe in the store and took the rest to the main office with the safe key and the store key every night. With an honest heart I told what had happened to the money and was told to “wait till the next morning before telling the manager”. Come next morning, the lost money would be in the safe with the sum I left there every night. I left one big bill and there were two in the morning when I came back.

    My museum keys also disappeared from my bag one night. I was walking home alone and took something from my bag and the keys were there, and a few steps later I took something else out and the keyes were not there. Had not dropped anywhere, nobody was around to take them, hadn’t slipped anywhere. I was in sweat thinking they were important keys that opened the main doors to the museum, but luckily I didn’t get the sack or anything. Just never got the keys back, they just disappeared.

  2. I know this is not the exact same, but if the devil can cause physical sensations of all kinds without anybody else being in the same room – which has been a sad but very evident and regular reality in my life for almost 7 years now – I have no doubt that he can also change the status or location of things or even entire bodies.
    Why wouldn’t he be able to do it?
    Plus, I know in my spirit that many more of these things happened to me and I have been trying to remember them to tell your readers about them here in the comments, to warn them, but I cannot recall what happened exactly… even though it won’t help the topic right now, but for me, it’s a good thing that I forgot these things, remembering them or mentioning them or witnessing to them somehow seems like acknowledging the devil and his powers – and I don’t want to do that anymore.

    All I want to do nowadays is witness to the powers of the ALLMIGHTY, the only one TRUE LIVING GOD.

    And HE can do anything.
    HE can do much more than the devil.

    Just feel the urge to emphasise again that there is absolutely no need to be fascinated by what magic or witchcraft or the devil can do, because it will always and only cause hurt and harm – every single time!
    And what GOD can do is always SO much greater and HE does it to our GOOD and never to destroy us!

    I don’t know if this comment will help anyone, but what I am trying to say is, yes, the devil can do things and it may be scary sometimes to be confronted with how much supernatural evil power GOD gave him, but whatever he did or does to you, you must never forget that he is a liar and his powers only come from GOD who has ALL the power and JESUS CHRIST always wins every single battle against the devil, in fact, HE already has won your very personal battle at this very moment, whatever it is and wherever you are!

    It is very good and helpful to be aware of these things and to know that they come from the devil, but at the same time, it doesn’t really matter if we have seen them or not, as long as we know and remember that there is only ONE true source of the ultimate power of the entire universe including every phenomenon we could ever encounter and that power belongs to GOD.

    I remember when all these evil and supernatural satanic things started happening to me, before I knew and had learned what is truly happening, I believed I was going crazy.
    And it was very helpful for me to find places like this blog to confirm that these phenomena exist and that I am not the only person whom the occult targets with this filth.

    I hope and pray that anyone reading this will be assured that they are not crazy, on the contrary, that they are in the very process of discovering the truth and this to an amount and degree most people never reach in their lives!

    And the fact that they are here, reading this blog, means that GOD is already working on their case and that THE HOLY SPIRIT wants them to know the truth, so that they can be free.
    And free indeed.
    And that they can have life and have it more abundantly.
    In JESUS’ name.
    GOD bless you for doing all this research and shedding all this light on the horrific darkness of the evil one – from so many angles.
    I am sure many people are and will be blessed by the truth and confirmation they can find here!
    You are probably helping more people and in more ways than you will ever know…


      1. Hey you, you are blessed to have found this blog.
        It is no coincidence that GOD brought you here.
        Finding all the information about the enemy’s snares on Jamal’s blog literally saved my life many years ago and Jamal’s work and dedication and the truth he keeps discovering essentially contributed to my salvation!
        Keep researching and seeking GOD and HE will rescue you, too, from whatever is attacking you.
        There is SO much information here on this blog and on his youtube channel!
        GOD bless you and thanks for the feedback, I am happy that GOD is working on your case!
        We give HIM all the glory, all the honor and all adoration!

    Before I was married, I was still living in the same home with my parents and brother for 26ish years, where the previous 10ish, strange phenomena would occur (and often times in the bathrooms; I don’t know why).

    One day I went to my parent’s bathroom (which was inside their bedroom) to borrow some shampoo and conditioner and went back through their room and down the hallway to my bathroom (which backed up to theirs). I stayed in my bathroom with the door closed and locked the whole time (and no one else came in) and I didn’t leave until I was finished getting ready.

    Afterwards, I opened the shower curtain to take the bottles back and they were gone… I searched the whole bathroom, in the trashcan, every cabinet, the toilet, Everywhere! and they weren’t in there. I decided to go back to my parent’s bathroom (only because other unexplainable things had happened before) and while I was walking down the hall, orchestral music started playing in my ears; music that’d i’d never heard before, liked I’d just popped in some earbuds and started listening to a movie soundtrack, and when I opened the shower curtain in my parent’s bathroom, there those two bottles were, unwet and in the same spot I’d picked them up from just an hour earlier.

    This was the only time physical objects moved from one place to another like this… it was as though something in my parent’s shower reached through the wall, grabbed the bottles and put them back on the rack in my parent’s shower. We are believers but there was certainly tension and turmoil during that season of life and I strongly believe that anger and a family greatly out of order with their Lord (Jesus Christ) and one another were a couple of the greatest open doors to the enemy for attack.

    “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you Will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” –Romans 10:8-11

    “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.” –Ephesians 6:10-18

    “The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” –Numbers 6:24-26
