Rising Demonic Possession: Real Exorcists Describe Battles With Evil (Videos)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Ever since Christ cast out the first Demon from a man in the New Testament we have all known of demonic possession. Centuries of exorcisms have left the Christian Church with a lot of information and knowledge on the Spirit World.


I was surprised to learn that the world of demonic possession is quite structured ( and of course its on the rise)).


“I have seen a dramatic rise in cases. In the past three hours before you phoned me, I have had three cases of people suffering serious contamination with the forces of evil. I am dealing with 10 to 15 cases a week.” (Father James LeBar, an exorcist for the Archdiocese of New York.


I would recommend Adam Blais Blog for some solid background on Exorcisms and Demons:


Q: Are Satan and the demons in hell?


A:  No.

The Book of Revelation is clear that after the war in heaven Lucifer and the errant angels were cast down to Earth to roam here and tempt mankind until the final judgment. It seems to be a common assumption or misunderstanding that demons are locked in hell, they are not. When demons are cast out of a person or location they are usually tortured by Satan for their failure and then re-assigned to a new case. We know this from encountering the same demons over time in disparate locations and times.


Q: Can demons possess anyone at any time?


A:  No.


Demons can scare people and influence their feelings, and sometimes thoughts, for a short time. Possession requires people to explicitly give permission. It is also very important to remember that demons don’t move an inch without permission from God, they are not running free. God does not wish demons to harm people but He doesn’t violate our free will if we choose to form a relationship with demons.



The below is the best video/audio I have ever seen for good  solid background on Exorcism and the Spirit world. Given the explosion of evil in the world we, as Christians, should all have some background on the Demonic Possession. You will be amazing at what there is to learn (and avoid) on this subject




Here is Raymond Arroyo’s conversation with the former exorcist of the Archdiocese of New York, the late Father James LeBar. Fr. LeBar separates fact from fiction regarding demonic possession and discusses the Catholic ministry of exorcism.

      Why is demonic possession :twisted: on the rise?

      Consider the following:

      The proportion that a society goes against the will of God, that is the same proportion that God withdraws His hedge of protection and blessing from that society. The more a nation or society as a whole turns its back on God, the more the presence of God withdraws. And the more the presence of God withdraws, the more room that gives to the Devil :twisted: to come in and do his thing. Consider in the natural world how a heavy police presence in a city or town keeps criminal activity at bay. But reduce or remove or the police presence and the chaos of crime kicks in. Likewise, in the spiritual turf, when the presence of God recedes, Satan :twisted: and his demons :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: have freer reign, they have more room to do their thing.

      And so in America for example, as the Obama administration and much of our society turns their backs on God, the presence of God recedes which is turn creates a vacuum that is quickly and eagerly filled by evil coming in like a flood. And since demons :twisted: are attracted to evil human inclinations like flies are attracted to fresh dung and feed upon the energy of evil actions, they gladly and dutifully stoke the embers and fan the flames of human depravity and the byproduct of such activity is horrific crimes and tragedies and ugly things all across the land.

      God gives us a choice between blessings or curses, depending on if we follow His ways or not. And because in America our political and cultural leaders have chosen the latter and seek to push God out of the public square and ignore the will of God, choosing to do things like sanction same sex ceremonies, kill babies wonderfully made in their wombs, go against Israel, and so forth, America is reaping what it has sown in the spiritual world and is becoming a haunt for demonic activity. :twisted:

      Wrong on a few important points as taught and experienced by Catholic Exorcists:

      Firstly: Lets be reminded that all Catholic priests are given the rite and power of exorcism, but only a few would dare to use it, those few are specially trained and have to be of the utmost integrity and have the most pure disposition. An exorcist firstly investigates the situation using both physical science and psychological investigation to make sure there is nothing natural involved and the situation is indeed supernatural.

      Secondly: Rome changed the exorcism rite during the pontificate of John Paul II. Real and professional exorcists refuse to use the “new rite” as they say they tried and it is absolutely ineffective, consequently they use the old Latin formula which is highly effective.

      Thirdly: In the movie the exorcist, which was patterned off of a real possession but of a boy not a girl, the parents were Lutheran and first approached a Lutheran minister to exorcise the child/boy. The Lutheran minister told the parents to go see a Catholic priest, only they have that power and ability he told them, which they eventually did. A real possession can only be ended by a properly ordained and trained Catholic priest. Think of the occult and demonology, all real evil are terrified of only one enemy – The Catholic Church, its priests and sacramental. (Other than the new Hollywood demons that are killed with special bullets, etc – lol) I might also mention that the enemies of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Paganism, Satanism, Communism, etc, are all afraid of one common enemy, they all agree and write in their literature and teach that the only one that can defeat them in the end is the Holy Roman Catholic Apostolic Church. Even thought the Church is presently under attack from both within and without, that many of her priest, High *up to the Top, and low have lost the faith and now work against Christ and His Church, this will in time be brought to an end, but the power of the priesthood stays intact, and none can rival it.

      Fourthly: When the battle in heaven was over, some of the angels sat on the fence, so to speak, they stayed neutral and waited to see who the winner was. According to some Catholic saints, mystics and stigmatic who have been shown a vision of that battle, such as Blessed Catherine Emmerich the German nun, mystic and stigmatic: Those angels who were neutral were condemned to hell along with Lucifer, however, they were given one temporary relief for their neutrality, that they would wonder in the world until the end of time, but always under the power and control of Lucifer. At the end of the world they to would immediately be thrust into the depths of hell. These fallen angels though retain their knowledge, they understand and know all the physical laws of the universe, they are pure intellect. However, they cannot physically help mankind, they can advise and help man to “build spaceships” as we call them, to transport men from one place to the other or help them devise instrument of evil for those who give themselves over to their power. Anna Catherine Emmerich (1776-1850) says in her revelations just that, that what we call aliens are indeed demons.

      Fifthly: Demonic possession happens in various ways according to Catholic theology and centuries of documentation.
      The person who gives themselves over willingly to demonic forces is usually not possessed but rather “obsessed” with evil and the devil needs not possess them, he has them already, however if one invites the demons willingly then they also can be possessed. Exorcists like Fr. Amorth, former chief exorcist in the Vatican and President of the International Association of Exorcists, states that he finds those who play with Ouija Boards, who listen to hard metal rock and other satanic inspired music and exercises, “including Yoga” often open themselves up to demonic possession. When the devil possesses a person, he does the persons physical attributes, his or her body but not he soul – i.e. the intellect and will, you are virtually a prisoner in your own body screaming out for help, screaming out that this is not you that someone else has control of your body. And let me repeat – YOGA – as innocent it may seem, is the worship of demons by nature – when one “opens their mind – relaxes their soul” so to speak, this gives the demon a chance to invite himself. I hear that even in [public schools, during gym and other arts classes, many teacher are incorporating Yoga into the curriculum or having the students practice some forms of it – oh how parents are so ignorant of the condition of the souls of their children, so ignorant of the forces attacking their children – with their permission or lack of attention.

      Sixthly: For an example in the case of a very real and serious possession in Early Iowa in 1936. A young girls, fourteen years old in this case. The father was an evil and bad man, the mother a good Catholic who died early.
      The first time the girl was possessed after the mother died was when the father one day in anger said something like, “the devil take you” or “be dammed you” something like this. Here, because while a child is under the care of her or his parents, and they have the duty and power of authority, here the parent “invited” the devil to possess the girl. The father remarried a “witch” who detested, of course, the girls Catholic faith passed on by her devout mother. The father, after the mothers death prevented them, the children from saying grace before meals, the Witch stepmother put a curse on the food which the girl ingested or ate and from this she was possessed. So, by invitation of a ignorant parent or guardian, or with food cursed, one can be possessed. The girl later confessed she had no control over her speech, actions, etc, and was virtually a prisoner in her body. One last item here: When the girl was finally exorcised, over 1000 demons possessed her; at the start of the exorcism the lowest demons (persons who have fallen into hell) are the first to flee the power of the exorcism and priest. In this girls case it was discovered that her father, who died shortly after she was possessed by the Witches curse, had fallen into hell and was one of the thousand demons -her own father.

      The devil can possess then not only a person, but objects. Rest assured though that the devil is terrified not only of a priest, but of Catholic sacramental, some of which in old movies are presented. Holy Water, which is blessed by the priest who reads over it minor exorcism prayers, any sacramental that is blessed such as a blessed crucifix, medal, picture, or other devotional objects. The Brown Scapular worn by many Catholics, not so many today unfortunately, is one object that the devil is in extreme fear of. Lastly, during exorcisms throughout the ages, these priests have discovered that two words that when the devil hears them he and his demons reel in fear, terror and pain, the words “Mary and Jesus”.

      Interestingly, they, these exorcists, have found that the devil fears the name of “Mary” the Mother of God, more than that of Christ for the reason: The devil knows who God is and what He is, the devil has more faith in what God is than any man, a faith he rejected, but again the devil’s position with God is one he understand and accepts. However, the devil hates Mary more than even God Himself, for the reason she is a mere human by creation, something below his angelic character and creation, he is beside himself with hate and loathing against her being that she was the “daughter of the Father – mother of the Son of God – and Spouse of the Holy Ghost”, that after her death she was elevated by the Blessed Trinity, above all the angels and above all creation and is the Queen of Heaven, Earth, Angels, Saints and men, that all grace flows though her from God to men, and all men’s prayers go though her to God. She is the intermediary, the Mediatrix of all graces, sort of understand the relation of a Father and Mother, how we go to “mom” to persuade day, etc, how mom is the heart and healer of our families, where dad is the pillar of strength and disciplinarian, so to speak if a family is in proper order.

      It has been recorded how the devil during many exorcisms reels in pain and terror with just the name of “Mary” being pronounced, this shows how powerful she is in heaven. The Trinity is God in three persons, and Mary is God’s creation, one that supersedes, ascends and reigns high above anyone else in creation, even the angels; would not you elevate your “mother or and spouse” be elevated to be beside you if you were a King?

      So, even today we are experiencing a dramatic increase in possessions. Those priests who have adopted the “new rite” effect nothing, the devil merely hides and laughs until the phony exorcism has passed. But if one enlists a priest who uses the traditional form or a traditional priest, then the devil knows his time is up. Today so many priests have fallen into “modernism” into a false religion that attempts to supplant the old – this being warned a hundred times by saints, mystics, stigmatics, visionaries, etc, most of whom have had full church approval in the past. So, now both the world and the Church are undergoing the most intense attacks of the devil in all of history – and though it might seem the Church is heading for a fall, rest assured, God is in control and He will at the last moment step in and make things right, but the method He uses will drive terror into the whole world – soon. God is going to punish the world and the “Church” for their sins, abortion, homosexuality, contraception, divorce, immodesty in dress, pornography, drugs, greed, etc, but mostly for the “great apostasy” now happening in the Church up to the Top. He is going to let our enemies punish us severely, and one of those enemies is “Russia”, but in the end, “Russia will burn” and so will all its allies, and all those who were against God, His Church (including those within) and our countries and families, will be annihilated.

      And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons;
      Mark 16:17

      Casting out demons is something all believers should be doing,
      there are plenty to be casting out.
      A believer is one who is actively following the Holy Spirit of Father Almighty.

      • Welcoming Truth

        The safest thing to do is take refuge in the name of Jesus.
        Calling out and casting out Demons is a very dangerous thing to do for the average person.

        • qaneh-bosem honestyherb

          Yeah, I agree, it can be very dangerous if a person is not
          led by the Holy Spirit.
          And there is a lot more to the name of Y’shua than just
          saying His name.

    • Deputy Dawg

      I don’t know whether to laugh or vomit! The ridiculous exorcism claims of the Catholic church would be laughable if it weren’t for the fact people’s lives are at stake. This is kind of like soliciting Satan for a correct interpretation of scripture. Asking the Harlot or one of her agents to remove what their master the devil supports seems really, really stupid and inadvisable.

      Before being called into God’s Church I was attacked by two “Greys.” The demons pinned my to the floor of my living room and laughed in my face every time I repeated “In the name of Jehovah God and His Son Jesus Christ I order you to leave my home.” It doesn’t therefor seem logical to me that the one organization responsible for misleading and corrupting so many would be given such authority by God. I will suggest though, that working in unison the exorcism makes for some very persuasive theatrics not to mention an efficient enlistment tool for those convinced of it authenticity.


    • The Ferrett

      This is the best book ever dealing with the subject of “Demon Possession.”
      And make NO mistake – this can happen to “Christians.”
