Just to share an extraordinary experience with you which happened last
Last evening, my wife invited a pastor and a church leader (both females)
with the primary intention to remove the idolatry items in our home (given to
us by my parents long ago for 'good luck', etc.); instead, it cascaded into a
scene similar to the movie 'Exorcist' when my wife seemed to be
'demon-influenced' - I won't say 'demon-possessed' since her rational mind is
The experience was very uncomfortable since my wife vacillated between two
identities (one of whom is her real self): mocking and sniggering at us that
she wanted to 'drop out of a window'. She did it with obvious wicked facial
contortions; cursed me with 'what are you looking at?' (all in Cantonese),
and challenged me 'what authority I have since I am not even a Christian?'
(at one point, I was desperate and wanted to help her - so like our two
Christian guests, I uttered loud to 'go away in the Lord's name'.)my wife
was then told to read certain passages, including The Armour of God
(presented below), in her native Cantonese.
There was certainly fear in me but I did not show my fears because I did not
want to be further held hostage to the demon so I kept quiet and watched the
drama unfolding until around 10:30 PM. By then, my wife returned to her usual
self - prayers continued and breaking (and 'symbolic breaking') of the
idolatry items took up the event until 11 plus PM.
Interestingly, my wife knew what was going on during her ordeal and she was
worried for me that the demon might harass me next. Fortunately for me, I
felt I was less terrified than I could have
been, because we attended a night bible sermon a few months ago which talked
about differentiating mental illness and demon-possession (and even watched
an unsettling clip on a real case!).
This morning, my wife still felt a little nervous as the demon told her some
lies again - but she felt its effect on her was weaker compared to previous
moments. Anyway, I read on the Internet today that there is no need to be
underestimate/overestimate spiritual warfare, so a balance approach is
The above incident seems so surreal that I do not think science can explain
it well - I just wished I had made up all of this (like weaving this into a
fantasy tale). Gosh, since [spiritual] war is upon
us, we just have to face it squarely - many scenes akin to those in 'The Lord
of the Rings'.
Have a pleasant day and do not worry about us, as we should be in good hands.
