The Exorcist is widely considered one of the scariest films of all time. Not only did it manage to cause a fear of Ouija boards, it also put the fear of God into American movie-goers in the midst of America’s 1970s Satanic Panic. What many don’t realize is that the story of a child in the grips of a demonic possession is based a true story.

In 1949 a boy named Roland Doe underwent a series of exorcisms in his St. Louis home, supposedly possessed by an evil entity he contacted after his spiritualist aunt gave him a talking board to play with.

The house is still considered by some to be haunted, having been featured on paranormal investigation shows like Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Now the Destination America channel plans to broadcast a live exorcism of the infamous house that inspired The Exorcist novel by William Peter Blatty.

Exorcism: Live! will feature psychic medium Chip Coffey as well as the cast of Ghost Asylum, a group known as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they attempt to remove whatever evil has inhabited the house for the last 66 years.

The exorcism will air live this October.

Fun Fact: The first-ever televised exorcism was aired by NBC in 1971.

The recording featured reporter Carole Simpson interviewing Ed and Marsha Becker, who believed their Chicago home was haunted. Medium Joseph DeLouise channels the spirit, and then a minister communicates with it and ultimately claims to have exorcised it. Ed later wrote about the frightening experiences he and later tenants experienced in his book True Haunting.

    These “specialists”, Exorcists under the authority of Churches and Christianity can reach spirits and communicate with them! Whoa, what did God say about this kind of service, is it okay or not?

    Friends, may I share with you what Maestro Eraño Martin Evangelista, the prophet like Moses had revealed to us concerning “Exorcism”:

    An exorcist is a person who can cast out evil spirits out of a person, animal or an object.

    People were made to believe by the apostles and religions that the exorcisms performed by Jesus during his ministry is a sign that he is sent by God and he is doing God’s will.

    Let us read if this claim is true:

    God said the following thru His prophet Moses:

    31 ” ‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.’
    Lev.19:31 NIV

    We can read God said that His people Israel should not seek spiritists or should not seek out people who can communicate with “spirits”- this includes exorcists because they communicate a certain command to the evil spirits which no ordinary human can do.

    What is the punishment from God if His people consult spiritists and mediums?

    “6 ” ‘I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people. ”
    Leviticus 20:6 NIV

    As we can read, the consequence that an Israelite will suffer once he or she consults such people is that God will cut him/her from His people.

    This is what happened to King Saul when he consulted a spiritist known as the witch of Endor (1 Samuel 28)

    What does God want His people to do then to those who practice divination and exorcism?

    27 ” ‘A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.’ ”
    Lev. 20:27 NIV

    God’s command is very clear, anyone who practices divination and exorcism from among His people shall be put to death.

    Since this is God’s command regarding exorcists and diviners, and Jesus practiced exorcism, it is clear that this act of Jesus was one of his wrongdoings why God forsook him to be flogged by men. (2 Samuel 7:14)
