Watched a two parter this weekend where the PRS group is out again and battling more demonic influences. This time they are up against the demonic forces who combined together and called themselves SIX. Supposedly this is for six demons possessing a girl. They did more psychic work with Chip and called in the priest and did the exorcism in the first part and then everyone was happy. As a note, I want to say that the girl who was possessed had previously played with an Ouija board.
Several months later, the team was out at a different house, different state, and different family where they encountered more demonic activity. Chip was in touch with the demons this time and they kept chanting six. They remembered the name and contacted the other family and they were having issues again. They went back to the other house and Chip was able to learn the names of the demons even though they refused to tell the priest during the first exorcism. One of the names was Beelzebub. Curious why one of the highest ranking demons would be possessing this one girl. It is stuff like this that causes me to question parts of the show and Chips “powers”. Anyways, they called in another priest and tried to exorcise the demons out again, but this time they didn’t want to go. At the end of the episode, the team didn’t know what to do and sent out a call for everyone to say a prayer and light a candle and send good wishes.
Couple of things:
When demons were cast out in the Bible, you can see references where non Christians, Jews, needed the name to try and exert power and authority over the demons. Jesus and His followers just commanded the demons out. There was the reference to “Legion”, but Jesus didn’t need to know there were a 1,000 demons in the girl. Legion helps to show the military structure in the demonic world and the fact that you can get more than one demon in you.
Two, we can see a biblical truth at work.
Matthew 12:43 “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, but finds none. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.”
When the first demon(s) was/were cast out and there was no salvation or introduction of Christ, the girl was nice and ready to be repossessed.
I think this show is a good thing for those with discernment. It brings forth demonic activity and the concept of evil spiritual forces to those who don’t believe. This is not a Christian show and please don’t base your Christian beliefs off this show.
