DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

DEMAND FOR EXORCISM

GROWING DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

Two of America’s most active exorcists say there is now a growing demand for their services as more unchurched Americans have been turning to them for help with demonic oppression, possession and other dark spiritual activity.

Father Gary Thomas, from The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, and Father Vincent Lampert, in the series “Paranormal Witness” commented that the increase in exorcism was caused by:

  • an expanding spiritual void in the lives of Americans
  • the diminishing authority of the Church
  • the failure of the mental healthcare system

They say an overwhelming number of requests that they get from people seeking help are regularly diagnosed as actual manifestations of demonic attachment, infestation, vexation or full possession. Many of the requests for help are not coming from practicing Christians but the unchurched segment of the population. Many of those who seek help are desperate people who have had no success with psychology and psychiatry.

We’re gaining all sorts of knowledge but there’s still that emptiness within us that is being filled with addictive behavior such as drugs and pornography. There’s a line in the Old Testament that says when one grows in knowledge one also grows in despair. “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.”                                                                                                                 Ecclesiastes 1: 18

The struggle against evil in society is becoming more of an emergency, and there is a direct cause: horror films, books, and television series which create temptation. Reading “occult books,” watching “occult movies,” can expose people to demonic possession. The most common occult activity is using an Ouija board to summon the dead.

DEMAND FOR EXORCISMS

The demand for exorcists in the U.S. appears to be following a global trend some say has been inspired by the leadership of Pope Francis in acknowledging the presence of the devil. Pope Francis has warned in past speeches that Satanism is on the rise in the world, and has praised exorcists for combating “the devil’s works.”

More people are finding out about exorcism because of radio programs like “Light in the Darkness.” in the Philippines. Television programs depict exorcism such as Fox’s “The Exorcist”.

The few people, who are possessed, may lose consciousness and they may even speak strange languages. Very well-mannered people may begin to vomit and blaspheme. Some may have inordinate strength.

Most people are not possessed in this way, but they can be influenced by the devil in subtle ways. They feel really bad. There are sign posts:

PHYSICAL HEALING ASSURED

PHYSICAL HEALING

Jesus Himself did not emphasize the miraculous; He saw physical healing as an ordinary aspect of what He called “works“, rather than miracles: a form of Good News in action. Healing of the spirit, emotion and body was all part of the message of salvation. So the apostles preached by healing and this continues today.

Physical Healing

Most people don’t know that God want to heal them:

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. ”                                                                                                                                           3 John 1:2

“They were anointed by the Holy Spirit with power; because God was within them, they cured all who had fallen into the power of the devil. “So the kingdom of God is not just words: it is power.             1 Corinthians 4:19,20 It is power to transform lives. It is Good News

PHYSICAL HEALING

Too many Christians are broken.  They are so broken that they cannot carry out the commandment to love God and their neighbor. Their inner turmoil prevents them from following God’s will.

Paradoxically, they may believe that this illness or brokenness is part of God’s will. So they don’t pray for a release for what God wants of them.

There is a mistaken belief, that you should carry your cross, as Jesus did.  Jesus does say to bear your cross, yet whenever He meets people who are sick, He cures them. This inconsistency can be explained by describing this cross as a cross of persecution, which comes outside of man.

The words healing and peace are synonymous with each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling. 

Physical sickness in our bodies is caused by disease or accident.  Sickness may simply be a message to you to keep your life in balance. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing.  These states often create illness.  The word “dis-ease” means without ease. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance.

We must use the natural means of preserving health. Physicians are instruments that are ordinarily used to bring about healing for trauma.  Psychology helps to bring problems to the light for what they are. One can administer to the body the necessary supplements and the body will heal itself to an extent. Surgeons can physically repair the body. But the miracle of healing is still by Jesus’ stripes (whippings).
