The Haunted House of Muscat?!

haunted house  I wonder if any of the Omani bloggers have heard of this so-called haunted house in Shatti across the highway from The Intercontinental.  Apparently (and I’ve heard this from quite a different number of people), the family living here was driven out by evil spirits that scared the living daylights out of them.  I don’t believe in “wandering spirits of dead people” which is such a popular notion today through movies and tv shows like “Medium” and “Ghost Whisperer” but I do believe in evil spirits.  The Bible refers to such entities in several places, one of the more famous stories being “the seven sons of Sceva” found in Acts 19:13-17.  “13Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.  14And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.  15And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?   16And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.  17And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.” close-up  Has anyone from Oman heard of this place and know more about the story?
