Why then do they try and bring us down with
Some say it is pure hatred for all that God has created. Others
say that was what Satan was created for in the first place, to try and
lead us away from God.
The whole idea of "I'm going down, so I want
to take you with me," or "I'm taking my hate of God out on you," just
doesn't seem quite right to me.
I would think that Satan and his
followers must believe they can win in the end, otherwise why
If they believe they have absolutely no chance of winning

Perhaps they believe mankind is the key to victory in a second
war in heaven. Perhaps they believe mankind has some special power or
purpose they can use.
After all, God created the material world and
the spirit world. Isn't mankind His only creation that is both?
ask you, what is the motivation behind demonic entities??
The best way to answer this question is with certain
Scripture passages which point to the basic nature of Satan and his
demons (other fallen angels which are subject to
Peter 5:8 - "Be sober and self controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary
the devil walks around like a roaring lion, seeking who he may
Revelation 12:12 - "Therefore rejoice you heavens and you
who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil
has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his
time is short."
Satan, who has been cast out of Heaven because of
attempting to exalt himself as the equal of God, has been confined to
the earth, and is enraged. He understands that he has but a short time
The demons are also acutely aware of their allotted time, as
can be evidenced from Matthew 8:29, when Jesus confronts the Legion of
spirits possessing the man inhabiting the tombs in the region of the

these verses, it would appear that Satan and his demons do realize that
they face ultimate defeat, and are attempting to "punish" their Creator
who cast them out, by destroying as much of humanity as they possibly
is nothing positive in the nature of these demonic spirits. Their
ultimate goal is destructive, and their only limited satisfaction lies
in deceiving God's creation of humanity.
Therefore, God sent His only
begotten Son, to destroy the works of the devil, and to be the ultimate
Savior for humankind.
Question: Can any deceased person's spirit become
A deceased person's spirit cannot become demonic.
Although some people can obviously be incredibly mean during life, an
actual demonic spirit is a separate class of being altogether, and was
never a human being.
In the same way, a true angelic being never
actually lived as a human being. Angels were created by God as a
separate order, before humans ever came into
Question: When investigating an alleged haunting, how do you
differentiate between a human or benevolent (angelic) spirit and an evil
(demonic) or inhuman spirit?
first, certain inhuman demonic spirits (depending upon their individual
modus operandi) will appear the same as human spirits, and may even go
all out to appear innocent, lost (a ploy for sympathy and to gain an
element of trust) and sweet. Others will appear malicious at the outset.
Going in with a positive attitude, and radiating faith in God, will
usually reveal the nature of a spirit, at least to a certain
Most likely a malicious inhuman spirit will at first
remain very elusive, to avoid detection. There is also quite a
difference in the level of activity in an inhuman
Question: How can you distinguish a demon from a spirit,
haunting or other entity?
In a demonic haunting, the entity or entities present
will tend to target certain individuals.
There will be systematic
Question: How do you validate that demons are
This is dependent upon the level and intensity of
activity taking place.
Usually this is done with religious
provocation, the purpose being to obtain a reaction from demonic spirits
that may be present.
Question: From your personal experience, how do you believe
that most demonic activity usually starts up in a home or
Most often because a family member, or perhaps a previous
resident of a home, has been involved with occult
Question: Have you ever become possessed as a result of
working these cases or has a spirit, demon, or other entity ever followed
you or your other caseworkers home?
If so, how did you deal with it?
Never! I take specific precautions to prevent anything
unholy from following us home.
However, we have known other
investigators who, perhaps because of their particular sensitivity, have
apparently had a negative spirit follow them after an
For this reason, I also take the precaution of praying
for other investigators before we leave a
Question: Why do demons attack?
For two reasons:
1) They are extremely envious of us
because we have been given the gifts of life and free choice by our
2) They seek to mock God by debasing and dehumanizing His
creation, namely us.
Question: Can you tell if you’re dealing with one or multiple
Usually we can, although this can sometimes only be
determined during a deliverance session.
It is very helpful if we
have the opportunity to work with someone who has the spiritual gift of
Question: Are there different types of demons? If so, can you
name a few you’ve encountered and what the cases were
Just as there are different classes of angels, there are
also different classes of demons. Some are very powerful, and for the
most part prefer to remain completely undetected.
To use an analogy,
if this were the military, then these higher entities would represent
the commanding officers, whereas the lower spirits that they have
authority over would represent the foot soldiers.
It is these lower,
more bestial spirits – the ones that create havoc in homes – which we
most often deal with.
Question: Do all demons intend to
The higher demonic entities, also known as devils, rarely
intend to possess.
Rather, they are often in control of the lower
demonic entities that do seek to
Question: Why do demons possess people, what is the
are essentially three main reasons why a demon would seek to possess a
They are incorporeal beings, and are therefore envious of the gift of
life which God has given us. Only by entering into a person can they
hope to temporarily experience the pleasures of the flesh, which we as
living people often take for granted.
2) Since we are created in the
image of God, demons seek to possess a human being as a way of
perverting, or dehumanizing God's creation. Demons consider this a way
of "getting back" at their Divine Creator, for their expulsion from the
3) Demons sometimes possess people to perform Satan's
direct will through them.
Question: How exactly do demons possess a victim's body or
The way a demon will most likely be able to possess a
person is by a systematic breaking down of that individual's will. Also,
for a demon to invade someone's psyche, the person must sometimes

Actual demonic possession is extremely rare, by the way.

least some sort external phenomena taking place as well, which can be
observed and documented by
Question: Do you require your clients to undergo
mental/physical check ups before you will work their
We recommend that they do so, although this is not
completely necessary when we initially become involved with a case.
However, if it comes to the point where an exorcism is required, we do
prefer that they undergo professional psychological
Question: Do other entities, such as angels, become actively
involved in exorcisms?
Angels can indeed be present during exorcisms.
Personally, I always pray for angelic assistance, whenever we are
involved in any sort of deliverance from evil
Question: Does Satan himself possess most people, or is it
the other demons mainly?
Satan himself, as well as his High Lords (devils),
rarely, in fact almost never, participate in the possession of human
beings. This is mainly the work of demons.
In Scripture, there are
only two instances of Satan directly becoming involved with the
possession of a human. These are:
1) When Satan enters into Judas
Iscariot, after Judas has decided to betray Jesus.
2) Satan's future
direct possession of the Antichrist, in the Book of Revelation.
Question: What is demonic activity commonly mistaken
What signs indicate a demonic presence over that of a mental
illness or other lesser threat?
Demonic activity is commonly mistaken for clinical
illnesses, and vice-versa.
Without thorough investigation, it is
often very easy to mistake genuine demonic oppression or possession for
such organic conditions as schizophrenia or multiple personality
However, to confirm genuine demonic activity, one must also
investigate any external phenomena, which may be taking
Question: Have people been rescued from mental institutions
based on demonic possession?
Although it is rare, some people have actually been
rescued from mental institutions that were in fact suffering from

Question: Is the percentage of male or female possessions
It's hard to tell if the percentage is more
male than female in actual possessions. To my knowledge, they seem about
In general, women seem to be somewhat more susceptible to
demonic oppression, although women generally seem to be able to cope
with the long term effects of oppression better than men. This is
because men often tend to go into a state of
Question: Do all demons recognize a certain church or
figurehead as an authority?
They do seem to acknowledge a Higher Power, and are
adverse to virtually anything that represents goodness and holiness.
Regardless of culture, they also seem to respond to the name of Jesus
Question: Are any religions more prone to demonic
Without intentionally trying to offend anyone: In my
personal experiences, yes, some religions are more prone to demonic
influence than are others.
For example, as part of their religious
ceremonies, both Voodoo and Sante Ria practitioners willingly invite
"spirit guides" (sometimes known as Loa) to inhabit their
Question: Do you have the authority to perform
Yes, as a believer in Jesus Christ. I believe Scripture
indicates that all true believers in Jesus Christ have the authority to
cast out evil spirits in His name, although not all believers are
necessarily ready to do so.
Question: Do you know what being possessed is like, and if
so, how does it feel?
From what has been described to me, those who are
experiencing possession are generally in a state of emotional torment,
exhaustion, and sometimes embarrassment, at least right after a spate of
possession has just occurred. The rest of the time, they have a sense of
being invaded, as if they are being deprived of their inner privacy.
Often these people are tormented by urges and/or voices which are
not their own.
During actual episode of possession, the afflicted
individual's own consciousness will temporarily "blank out", causing
them to experience an occasional loss of time, as well as loss of
Question: Do demons earthly interact with humans, or are they
mainly in a different "realm"?
In actuality, demons rarely interact directly with
humans, and are usually limited to subtle temptation/oppression. Demons
exist in a separate dimensional plane, which Jesus described as a state
of "wandering through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none".
(Matthew 12: 43-45)
Question: Can animals be
Although this is very rare, yes, animals can be
possessed, both in ancient times and in the present. (Mark 5: 11-13)
However, it is far more likely that an animal would be in some way
influenced by a demonic presence, since their senses are generally more
developed than are ours.
Question: Do you believe that ghosts are formerly people or
that that which are called ghosts are actually non-human
confronted with a haunting, be it in a home in which a presence dwells,
or through an individual who has come under possession, I do not
immediately react as if faced with an inhuman spirit. Rather, I give it
the opportunity to prove if it is in reality 'lost little Sally' or
'dead Uncle Fred'.
all my years, never once have I encountered a spirit presence such as
this (claiming to be a deceased human), which will not inevitably react
negatively when asked about the presence of holy angels or of Jesus
Christ. The spirit either avoids this line of interrogation altogether
(if it is rapping on walls or speaking through a person), or if I
persist, the reaction will be violent.
And so, to answer your question more specifically:
With the possible exception of some "residual" (playback or time
displacement) phenomena, I believe that spirits involved in haunting and
possessions are inhuman entities, working against God...and not the
disembodied spirits of
Question: Why is it that clearly there is demonic activity

What would, in your opinion, be undeniable proof of demonic
People conveniently tend to ignore what makes them
uncomfortable. I think it is also fear of ridicule in our modern "show
it to me" society.
Proof would perhaps come by obtaining substantial
evidence, such as being able to study a full-bodied apparition for an
extended period of time, under controlled scientific
Question: Has any possessed person (or demonic presence) ever
been video taped or otherwise recorded?
Yes, demonic possession has been videotaped, and recorded
on still photos and on audio.
The same applies to demons manifesting
in spirit form; the audio recordings are normally in the form of EVP
(Electronic Voice Phenomena).
Question: As a sensitive, I am frustrated because I want
to be able to help people without becoming overwhelmed.
What are some
really powerful ways to protect myself from other peoples emotions as well
you have to do in these situations, is to place a psychic, emotional
'wall' between yourself and the situation you find yourself involved
with...and this includes the individuals you may be offering help to as
well. When situations threaten to become emotionally overwhelming, you
have to place your emotional, compassionate self on hold, and react to
the situation objectively. I know this will not be easy, and it takes
much practice...it is often very difficult for me to emotionally
distance myself as well. But, you will be much more effective in
protecting yourself by doing this, as well as the people you are
is exactly what any type of emergency or rescue worker trains him or
herself to do over time. It does not mean you are not feeling
compassion...you are simply putting the psychic and emotional
internalization of things temporarily on hold, until such time as your
psyche has opportunity to effectively internalize and process the
emotional input (and
Question: How is the Ouija board properly used, why should
one use it, and what are the drawbacks/safety
Question: Could playing the game, "Light As A Feather,
Stiff as a Board" be an invitation to demonic
people consider the Ouija board to be a harmless parlor game made up of
a board with various letters, numbers and symbols, etc. together with a
piece of plastic, called a planchette, manufactured by Parker Bros. for
use at parties and the like. They are correct. Some individuals (for
example, psychic medium James Van Pragh) claim to have regularly used
the Ouija board with no ill effects.
is true that the board possesses no power of it’s own, imparted by the
toy manufacturer. However, there is a real danger in using the Ouija
board to communicate with spirits (or any similar divination device).
The individual using this tool is opening up his or her free will,
leaving them vulnerable to an invading spirit presence. I personally do
not recommend the use of a Ouija board, simply because there is a risk
of opening doors to inhuman entities.
using this device, someone may successfully contact what, at first, will
appear to be a ‘benevolent’ spirit, only to have this spirit turn on
them once they have gained a foothold.
Demonic spirits will often pose as spirits of the
departed, when in fact they have never actually walked the earth inhuman
form. Demons can be very adept at masquerading as relatives or friends
who have passed on. One ploy used is to reveal hidden knowledge, which
was supposedly known only to the deceased. This information will often
eventually prove to be correct and verifiable. However, once a firm
attachment has taken place, the demonic will attempt to confuse by
cleverly mixing lies with truth.
There are those who will become emotionally dependent
upon these ‘spirit friends’ and an inhuman presence will have no
reservations about using a person's loneliness or emotional
vulnerability to gain a stronger foothold. By the time the hostile
entity has revealed it's true colors, the person who has unwittingly
been communicating with this diabolical spirit will often find that they
are much harder to get rid of than they were to bring in.
request for a spirit to manifest itself (appear) to someone through the
use of the Ouija board is an open invitation for an inhuman spirit to
infiltrate that person's life.
Although I don't recommend it, if one
does use the board- closure should always be done at the end of each
session, similar to saying good bye at the end of a telephone
extremely rare instances, with certain subjects, this game can sometimes
cause a spontaneous projection of the astral (spiritual) self, leaving
the subject vulnerable to an invading entity. This is extremely rare,
and usually involves a subject who is very sensitive and vulnerable to

Question: Do 'Shadow People' exist and, if so,
what are they?
people are entities which are usually doing the bidding of higher
entities, especially the ones which appear small. These are of the 'imp'
variety, and some people and cultures refer to them as 'elementals'
'nature spirits'...especially if they appear in a wooded area.
Although they are often associated with people who are living or
have lived, they themselves are not human in origin, and will usually
back off (sometimes temporarily) when the names of God, Jesus Christ, or
the Holy Spirit are
mentioned. They become especially aggravated and
fearful when the shed blood of Jesus Christ is mentioned.

pranksters. But make no mistake, they are non-human in
Question: What is meant by the term
Poltergeist is a German word that, literally
translated, means noisy or playful ghost. Poltergeist generally refers
to any type of spirit activity where noises are caused by an unseen
force, inanimate objects are moved or fires spontaneously start, water
or other elements or objects appear out of nowhere, or people are
touched by something unseen.
Question: What, if any, is the significance of swarms of
green (or any color) flies in conjunction with a
significance of the green flies is what I personally believe to be
demonic entities paying homage to Beelzebub, since this name translates
to "lord of the flies".
This does not necessarily mean that Beelzebub himself
is present. Rather, it is more of a demonic calling card, so to speak,
announcing that "We are of the kingdom of Beelzebub." Similarly, demonic
spirits are often referred to as Satan, because they are representatives
of the Satanic kingdom.
Question: Are there any misconceptions you would like to
clear up about your field of work?
There has been a great deal of hype, concerning the way
the way demonic situations have been portrayed in the media. It is not
always a cut and dry situation, and a great deal of research and
investigation often goes into becoming involved in a demonic
