As God gave mankind free will, He placed them above the Angels and the demonic.
For as long as mankind has faith in Him, God would protect them from all others not of man. It is this freedom and favor that He gave which breeds the hatred the fallen angels have against mankind. Through time itself, Lucifer has developed a diabolic strategy to dishonor mankind and allow his legions to breathe the breath of life. It begins with slow infestation and building of power, oppressing the victim, and finally possessing the victim.
Possession gained public awareness in the 1973 release of the film The Exorcist. Though based upon a true story, this film fell to the glamorization of Hollywood. The possession portrayed in the film was that of a Âperfect possessionÂ which is very rare. In most instances, the victim and the entity often struggle for control portraying what may look like schizophrenic symptoms. Once the oppression phase has come near its end, the victim will often give up the fight against the powers that are there, feeling hopelessness or through a false promise of relief from the entities. Once the victim opens those doors, the diabolic entity enters their body and begins the possession process Â something that can only be done through invitation, either purposely or by accident.
There was a woman who lost her only son when he was just 20 years of age to a drunk driver. This woman, that we’ll call Joan, was so devastated over the loss of her son that she longed to remain in contact with him. One day, her sister gave her a book that discussed the concept of using electronic voice phenomenon to speak with the dead. Joan devoted herself to this book and would frequent the cemetery where her son was laid to rest, attempting to establish a link to her son using nothing more than a tape recorder.
She did achieve some limited success in contacting what appeared to be her son Â but also her pain and sorrow drew the attention of something much more dark and sinister from the graveyard. Soon, using electronic communications was not enough for Joan, so she turned to the use of a Ouija board. Joan established contact with something that claimed to be her son. It shared knowledge with her that only her son should know, and even began to predict events accurately.
The board soon became an infatuation with Joan. She used it more and more, and eventually began to use the board alone. This initial interest of communicating with her son lead to five years of torment and terror, as demonic entities entered into her life. Friends began to notice changes in Joan. She began to spend more time alone. Her emotions became more negative towards others and herself. Her sleep became difficult. It became riddled with intense nightmares of her son’s death, tainted by unknown entities. Joan began to hear voices and see figures moving about her home. She began to experience bruises and scratches she couldn’t explain, and a feeling of something inside her head that she couldn’t control. Joan was experiencing a partial possession.
Not all circumstances follow the course of first infestation and then oppression before a possession is attempted by an entity. In some cases, the demonic have infested a property such a long time that all they need is an Âopen doorÂ to a potential victim for a possession attempt to take place. An Âopen doorÂ is a weakness in a person that an entity can slip through into a person, or in some instances all it takes is a very powerful sensitive who is ÂopenÂ to all that is in a location.
An investigation was held at a location known to be infested with the demonic, and a small team went in with the goal of cleansing the location. Within a matter of thirty minutes, the sensitive of the group began to feel her face distort by itself. She noticed that she began to hear herself mutter obscenities, curses and threats to other team members. It became apparent to this experienced sensitive what was going on so she removed herself from that situation before it went too far. But within minutes of that experience, another team member’s demeanor changed completely. Normally a very outspoken, confident individual, he began to mumble his words and not show clear thought. This gentleman was removed from the environment before the situation went too far. In essence, this team was infiltrated in a matter of minutes, not months or years, because the environmental circumstances were just right.
Possession contains many of the clinical signs of Schizophrenia. In Schizophrenia, a patient experiences hallucinations that are false perceptions. They are inaccuracies that affect the senses and cause people to hear, see, taste, touch or smell what others do not. In the acute phases of schizophrenia, patients are most likely to insist they are hearing voices that no one else can hear. Sometimes they hear noises, clicks or non-word sounds. On occasion, though more rarely, they are disturbed by seeing, smelling or feeling things that others do not.
Descriptions of these perceptions differ. Sometimes they are experienced as very forceful and important thoughts. Frequently, however, they seem to come from outside the self and are heard as conversations between other people, or commands, or compliments (or insults) addressed to the person. Sometimes the voices are reassuring, at other times they are menacing. Often enough, the remarks heard are not addressed to the person but seem to be concerned with them in an unclear (but perhaps derogatory) way. Individuals who experience this describe it Âlike a tape playing in my head.Â It is so real to the person that it cannot be dismissed as imagination. And so the fine line is drawn between mental illness and possession.
The similarities between possession and Schizophrenia are by design not by coincidence. Satan’s greatest strength is the deception of his non-existence that he places within mankind. It is only through a keen balance of faith and knowledge of mental illness that the difference between Schizophrenia and a possession can be determined. If it is a true possession, then only faith will see you through.
