Just read the whole thread.
IMO, you should step back from this and consider: You are a Christian and you have posted regarding your faith and also that you have verbally
rebuked spirits in the name of Christ. The suggestions to (A) meditate and (B) begin a simple exploration of esoteric matters are excellent ones
offered by posters and I second them. If you and your wife set aside time to meditate together and radiate feelings of love toward the entity, you
will feel better, at least. The spirit of Christ-Love is very, very powerful.
Having said that, I would ask if you are ready to accept the implications of the research you are doing. Suppose that you uncover some sort of
evidence that the story of Jesus is not what you thought it was? Would you (and your wife) still retain a hold on sanity if you find the 'proof'
you are seeking? Other have found their truths and simultaneously slipped away from the real world.
I guess my advice is for you to augment your external searching with the proper amount of _internal_ reflection and searching as well.
You should also check out info on lucid dreaming as it is not hard and it may open a clearer path for communication.
Myself, I bought LaBerge's book on lucid dreaming and it worked for me, although it requires some work. Essentially, you must record your dreams in
a journal and be dutiful to do so every moment you wake up. even if you are scrawling the words in the dark before you forget them, you will recieve
insights for this simple act alone. After you establish this habit, you should read the notes to find your 'Dreamsigns'. Dreamsigns are the things
that pop up frequently in your dreams. These can be any element of your dreams. For me, my dreamsigns were action figures (GI Joe-type), television
sets/monitors, and women. Okay, maybe women weren't a dreamsign but you get the picture. :^)
Then, what you do is train yourslf to look for your dreamsigns in waking life. Everytime I saw one of these three things, I trained myself to ask,
"Am I dreaming?" and then I would look at some text or numbers around me (wristwatch, sign, whatever). LaBerge said that if I did this enough, one
time the letters or numbers would shift and the veil of dreaming would fall (I would wake up in my dream).
Anyhow, my first moment of lucidity was in a dream where I was at some sort of flea market. I was handling an action figure on some seller's table
and I _knew_ I was not dreaming. In any case, I did a dreamstate check, turning the action figure over and reading the tiny embossed copyright info.
Sure as hell, the letters shifted in front of my eyes and I became lucid. It was the most amazing thing and no experience since has affected me so
profoundly. At the moment of lucidity, that dream world became TEN TIMES more real. I realized then how dreamlike my surroundings actually were. I
was at the flea market, barefoot. I could feel the heat radiating from the sunshine on the blacktop and up through my bare feet. I remained lucid
and performed several actions with full concious thought inside my dream until I awoke. The lucid state slips away and is elusive but AWESOME.
I mention this because I feel that life is mostly full of illusions, and the trick is to find happiness in spite of all the weirdness. If 'Bob'
contacted you in your dream, you should try to increase that dream-communication channel with some hard work on your end. If you could become lucid
and then imagine your house as the background of the lucid state, I am guessing Bob may be waiting for you there.
QUESTION: Did you name it Bob after the freaky entity which hides upstairs in David Lynch's "Twin Peaks: Firewalk with Me"? Is that why you named
it Bob? I ask this because if you had that image in your head (freaky dude, watch the movie if you don't know) this may have been why the entity was
so freaked out by that name. It may have also comprehended the image that was in your mind when you were yelling at it that day. Just a thought.
Fear and Love are the two poles in this world. Any fear can be dissolved if the object of fear is sufficiently loved.
