LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms…” (Ephesians 6:11-12, the Holy Bible).
50 CAGAYAN STUDENTS EVIL-POSSESSED? BIBLE IS CURE: Scary and dangerous! These to me represent the news that about 50 high school students from the Enrile Vocational High School in Bgy. Maddarulug, Enrile, Cagayan are being possessed regularly by evil spirits since January 2017 up to the present. Ten of these students were possessed only the other day, according to reports.
Teachers from the school told media that the evil-possessed students would suddenly gain extra-ordinary strength, their voices altered while shouting noisily something about the destruction of their house. Evil possession among the students in the school has persisted today even if various religious organizations have already tried to drive the spirits away.
This phenomenon is being attributed by school authorities to the cutting down of a tree inside the campus. Apparently, the spirits appear to be staying in the tree. When it was cut down, students of the school began displaying weird and inexplicable behavior, mouthing complaints about the destruction of their house, apparently referring to the tree.
BIBLE AS INSTRUMENT VS. EVIL POSSESSION: Many will dismiss this event as a simple psychotic attack which may have been caused by ordinary human factors like hunger, fatigue, weariness, or by some other psychological imbalance. And they maybe right. But evil possession among humans is real, and a even a short research on the subject through Google will show this to be so.
Now, since this problem is real, it would be wise for all interested individuals to learn a thing or two about it from as many sources as possible. For me, however, the particularly pertinent source of information about evil spirits and possession would be the only book that offers a wide array of information on the matter, which is the Bible.
From the Bible, we are reminded of one important truth: that there are spiritual forces of evil in the air around us which have the power to twist our minds and make us do things that are truly sinful, indecent, and devilish, and the only way to defeat them is by being with God through His Word. We can see this specifically portrayed and proclaimed in its Ephesians 6:11-12.
WHY EVIL POSSESSION IS HAPPENING IN RP:These evil spirits have the capacity of manifesting themselves not only through outward acts but more so in the thoughts and desires of people. In 1 Timothy 4:1 for example, we are warned that as the end of the world gets nearer, many will abandon the faith and instead follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
People will no longer listen to good teaching, and instead will gather around them a great number of teachers who only say what their itching ears want to hear, turning their ears away from the truth, and turn aside to myths. As they are growing up, they will be shying away from the Bible and even away from God all their lives.
Now, since these people grew up without the Bible and without God, with whom did they be grow up? With God’s enemy, of course, which is the devil. Certainly, growing up with the devil could only mean allowing the devil, deliberately or otherwise, to take control of, and possess, one’s mind, body, and spirit. This is the reason why evil possession is prevalent in the Philippines nowadays.
