Ghosts & the Paranormal – I have been on over 1000 investigations, about 1/3 have been called demonic by the client. Out of 400 demonic cases, I have only seen 3 that may have actually been demonic. Demonic cases are a rarity.
Homer used the term demons and gods more or less interchangeably. Demons were thought of as intermediaries between men and gods. Some people even thought that demons were once men, while others thought that demons were once angels and that they followed Lucifer in his coup against God and were banished to Earth. We now think of demons as malignant spirits that are here to do us harm. To be a good demonologist, here are some steps in identifying certain demonic attributes, let’s look over them.
When a human is inhabited or ‘taken over’ by a demon. A possessed human will have no control over their own will. Most cases of demon possession have been diagnosed as mental illness. The Catholic Church in the shadow of Josephus is known to identify and exorcise real demoniacal possession.
Demon Influence of Mankind:
Most people felt demonic activity increased during the rise of Nazism and World War II. According to many spiritual leaders, demons set the motion for events with groups like the Peoples’ Temple and David Koresh’s cult. The main goal of demons is the ability to turn mankind from God and lead us down to destruction, such as the mass suicide done through poisoned Kool-Aid event in Guyana under the influence of Reverend Jim Jones or the Waco destruction that David Koresh initiated when confronted by the ATF and the FBI. From the 70s to the 80s, strange murders were taking place on the US Eastern states in which the suspects were telling the police that God told them to commit murder. Many people believe that what these murderers saw or heard, was not God or an angel, but was a demon in disguise of God or an angel and would influence the suspect to commit random murder.
Bringing Demons into Our Lives:
Demons live in an outworldly realm and they need a portal to enter our own reality. Many people believe a portal can be opened with the use of an Ouija Board. Other portals could be in our own being, paranoid schizophrenia could be a link to altered mental states that may be connected to a strong psychic ability, such as LSD took many people in an altered state of consciousness that may open an inner portal within ourselves, that may allow a demon to inhabit our bodies. Interdimensional portals are not always for demons as in the case of the Skin Walker Ranch in Utah. This is portal that opened up near this Utah ranch that brought in UFOs, appearances of huge otherworldly creatures, a bulletproof werewolf, flying orbs of light that have dazzling maneuverability. This portal brought on poltergeist activity and even vanishing and mutilated cattle. So-called experts claim that perhaps the UFOs are interested in the Gilsonite deposits near and around that ranch, but that doesn’t explain away the bullet-proof werewolf that appeared. The last wolf in Utah was killed in 1929. The family that lived on the Skin Walker ranch were terrorized by the entities that seem to be flowing from this portal. Perhaps the legend of American Indians that were known to be skin walkers or shapeshifters, that inhabited the area around this ranch were influenced by this mystical portal into the unknown. It makes you think that all things paranormal may just be connected, because even demons seemed to make their appearance from the portal at Skin Walker Ranch. Perhaps portals into the unknown can lead us like some Stargate, into other dimensional realities where energy beings, werewolves, demons and aliens may exist.
How Can we Identify Demon Activity?
- The appearance of black smoke, black mist or black fog
- The odd behavior of occupants that live in a demonic haunted home. Such as defecation or urination around the home. Unusual vomiting activity by occupants. Strange behavior and abnormal cursing by occupants. Convulsions, unusual shaking, eyes out of focus
- Objects around the home being violently thrown around
- Extreme anger and hatred felt by one of the occupants of the home
- Domestic violence within the household
Main Purpose of Demon that is Haunting a Home:
- To create chaos and discord with the family
- To break up the family unit
- To turn the family away from God and their beliefs
Getting Rid Of Demons
The best way to cast out a demon from a home, is to contact your church. Methods used are:
- Encircling the possessed occupant and placing your hand on their body. Pray for a ‘hedge of protection’ for this person. A hedge of protection that will bring on angels to this home that will chase out any demon spirits.
- Placing religious paraphernalia throughout the home. Figurines and images of angels should be placed strategically throughout your home.
- Bless the home with your preacher or priest with holy water and the burning of sage. The family leader should initiate the prayer throughout each room of the house and lead the demon towards an exit of the home. Your clergyman should suggest what prayers should be read.
- People of the Catholic faith, make the sign of the cross, they call upon their faith and demand the evil entity to leave their home and go back to where it came from, in the name of God. Call upon God and his Army of Angels to protect your home through prayer.
Successful exorcisms of demons have been performed by John Paul II three times in 1978, 1982 and the year 2000. Jesus is known to have cast out demons on six separate occasions.
There have been failures, I won’t even mention the Salem Witch Trials or the Spanish Inquisition, but I will talk about Anneliese Michel who died in 1976. Anneliese had epilepsy and the family stopped her treatment for this disease and consulted their church. The Catholic Church did an exorcism that lead to Anneliese’s death, she died of malnutrition. The parents and the priests were charged with negligent homicide, which inspired the movie ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’.
Another failure was Maricica Irina Cornici. She was chained up to a cross for 3 days by her Orthodox priest and 4 nuns. The Orthodox priest and 4 nuns were charged with murder in Romania.
Some of our greatest minds were influenced by demons. Take Leonardo da Vinci, he was influenced by Lucifer the light bearer, the personification of the Morning Star. Yes, Leonardo followed the old Luciferan way, which influenced his paintings, as legend has it.
A case of mass demonic possession occurred in Loudun, Vienne in France, in the year 1634. The nuns were taken over by erotomania. They screamed out blasphemies and started displaying their genitalia. The demons that were blamed in this mass hysteria were Balan, Iscaron, Leviathan and Behemoth.
MY WORST DEMONIC CASE:
Town: Lockford, CA Year 2006. Two women, one in their 60s and her god-daughter in her 30s. Both raised parrots for a living. The two women seemed very sweet and nice. When I conducted the interview wit the 60 year old, her face started to distort to something evil. She told me in her interview that she had visions of killing men with a baseball bat, bashing their brains out. 15 minutes later, I saw the god-daughter dancing, twirling around in a circle carrying a baseball bat. She had a maniacal look on her face and laughing hysterically. I ran out of the house in fear of my life. I am not afraid of ghosts, nor am I afraid of demons, but I am afraid of a living human being holding a weapon. I truly believe these two women were possessed. They made claim that they saw a black mass in the hallway that would come every night at 2am or 3am. This black mass demon would sexually attack both of them. Both women had bite marks on their necks, shoulders, chest, thighs. I did not stay around to watch this demon attack, because of the baseball incident. Nowadays, when people tell me they have an attachment, I don’t hesitate in giving them a baptism. Because of my fight with the demonic, I received the name…the Demon Warrior, my inspiration for being the Demon Warrior are the Knight Templars.
