It has been a year and a half since i experienced the deliverance (by a Man of God) of a young girl, who was being tormented by an evil spirit. The other day, i bumped into her at a birthday party. She was looking absolutely gorgeous in a black dress with a huge black crystal pendant dangling from a gold chain and a double bracelet of white crystals interrupted with blue stones.
After all the niceties were exchange, i asked her about the crystals. She explained that the black crystal was to attract all negative energy away from her body and, the white crystals were to attract only people with positive energy toward her. The blue stones were her prescribed birth stones. She went on and on about how she was now a 'Hypno-Therapist' and a 'crystal healer' and how she could even heal cancer patients! She was full of herself and gloated about her new powers.
At one point in our conversation, she even asked me this ridiculous question: "What percentage of you is present inside your body right now?"
I answered "100 percent!" (... and there was no further comment on that!!!)
I asked the Lord what i should say to her and He brought to mind the following scripture:
Matthew 12:43. "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
44 "Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
45 "Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation."
(The Lord Jesus speaks about an unclean spirit who,after being cast out of a man, travels through water-less places, seeking rest. So this evil spirit, having wandered for some time, decides that he will go back to where he came from in order to find some rest).
I was very tempted to look straight into her eyes and ask, " HAVE YOU RETURNED BY ANY CHANCE?" But then i was concerned that she would start manifesting right there at the party! All i said to her before i left the party hall was:
"ALL YOU NEED IS THE LIVING HEALER. READ THE WORD AND HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. YOU DO NOT NEED THE TOOLS OF THE DEVIL TO HEAL!"
The answer i got from her was, " What i am doing is not against my Catholic beliefs. It is harmless".
(Let us not forget to keep this young girl in prayer after you read the above article. Looks like another deliverance effort is in order in the near future!)
