SYMPTOMS – The person will frequently babble or talk nonsense; he frequently says vulgar words. He will display superhuman strength and endurance, and may go without food or drink for days. He appears frightened, angry, or disturbed, with no interest in his appearance.
CAUSES – He has attended a spiritist séance, had a hypnotic encounter, been reading occult (witchcraft) literature, played with a ouija board, attended a church of Satan, or been prayed over by a witch doctor.
Concerned family members and friends should take turns reading the Bible aloud in the presence of the devil-possessed person and alternate with ongoing prayer. Those participating in this must confess to God all known sins and plead for forgiveness. The evil spirit may cry out and complain, but he will always tremble when the name of Jesus Christ is mentioned. This prescription will cause the evil spirit to leave the person.
When that occurs, all should kneel and praise God for His deliverance and plead for the Holy Spirit of God to fill the life of the person, so the evil spirit will not return.
That person must also be told to go and sin no more; and he should intend to change his way of life and never again dabble in Satanism.
ENCOURAGEMENT- The faces of men and women who walk and work with God express the peace of heaven. They are surrounded with the atmosphere of heaven. For these souls, the kingdom of God has begun.
