Consider this fictitious
Investigators determine the house
has a demonic entity.
The owners agree to a ‘cleansing’
or as the faith practitioners more
so refer to as a ‘blessing’.
Someone walks around the house with
holy water (example), commanding in
the name of Jesus for the spirit(s)
to go. All is quiet during this process,
then it is completed. The home owners
thank the team, they pack up and drive
home, basking in a glow of accomplishment.
A bit premature however...
So as it evening streams into later
hours of the night, it becomes time
The home owners suddenly hear a ruckus
downstairs, unlike what they have
experienced before. It sounds like
a Barroom brawl, and it is coming
from the family room. They call the
police and they later find, the room
is trashed, furniture overturned,
the big screen TV screen is cracked,
stereo receiver is in pieces with
the speaker cones punctured. Red lipstick
written on the wall citing foul language.
’No sign of forced entry, none
else has a key…’ The police
notes, and leaves it as a mystery.
Then end result: In all a few thousand
dollars in damage and a more distraught
How were these people helped? And
why did this happen?
Ineffective blessings and other methods
of deliverance can often do more harm
than good. The bee hive was shook,
not removed, and while the team gloated
in a job well done. Things only got
worse upon their withdrawal. What
this group did, to a lesser degree,
was in affect a ‘religious provocation’.
A varied by method, sort of ritual
some proclaimed demonologist do to
purposely force the demon to reveal
itself, as to better validate a demonic
haunting. (Which therefore expedites
any action through the church, since
the evidence produced.)
In other scenarios, ‘Payback’
can be in the form of a physical attack.
The family goes to sleep, and close
their eyes, in a trusting of the ‘strangers
with meters’. With hope that
it may truly be over, and they can
live their lives normally. Then around
the later hours of night, the attack
begins. For Linda Marsh, it was strangulation,
it is more so done as a warning, and
show of what you are dealing with.
But it is indeed a ‘punishment’
for the ‘blessing’ which
can cause it some metaphysical pain.
If the demon could kill you, it would,
it really hasn’t gained power
from the anger it simply was displaying
what it is capable of.
Bottom line, is to not go in with
all guns blazing until you know what
you are dealing with. Would you go
in with a bufferfly net to catch a
Be sure to assess carefully in a
possible demonic involvement and at
what level it may have already manifested.
If it can manifest in a daytime sun
lit kitchen and likes to spin wall
hung crucifix’s upside down.
This maybe an indication of the work
of a higher more powerful demon. (Devil).
One solution doesn’t fit all
Demonic cases, so keep the blessing
guns holstered, until you learn it
is going to help, not make things
A few tips:
Try to carefully avoid stirring things
Do your prayers of protection before
entering the premises, and off property.
Leave the metaphoric ‘guns’
in the glove boxes and tool cases.
Rather than to flash crucifixes, relics
and splashing holy water like some
cereal box licensed holy man.
You don’t want to rattle the
cage then leave the poor family to
deal with it alone!
Be prepared to start what you have
finished and don’t be so arrogant
in the thought you can handle it alone
without a priest or relevant ordained
Call on you ‘prayer groups’
to begin prayers for ‘Deliverance’
ASAP, the more people the better.
Demonic spirits are not driven away
in a timely manner at your convenience.
So if you have to be at work then
next morning, schedule a set of dates
when you can be there for them say
after the blessing, maybe for a couple

Sorry to get preachy here folks, but
we can’t simply ride off into
the sunset, or moonlight, until the
job is done. After all the goal should
be as a ‘closer’ if you
proclaim to be a ‘ghost busters’
and not just a team of ‘ghost
hunters’ there to gather evidence.
