I have posted that excellent interview of Fr. Malachi Martin several time in the past. I usually post the audio version here:
Presented below is a bizarre description of text messages from demons received during exorcisms.
The article starts with more general discussion of cases of exorcism, but here is the part about text messages:
...But the strangest thing is that several exorcists have found that the demons themselves send text messages to cell phones to harass.
This is the second issue we want to talk to you about.
The cell phone used by the Office of Exorcisms of the Archdiocese of Manila received threatening messages from the phone of a former satanist, who was in the process of exorcism. (The demon made her levitate.)
Gina, the secretary of Father Jose Syquia, the director of the office, began to receive messages from the phone of the possessed woman who was in another room talking with the father and his companion!
All the messages were in Filipino.
“Don’t believe the Father,” said one. [Scroll below ad for more]
Another claimed that Syquia was a sinner and a liar and that he could not help the woman whatsoever. She also received messages saying that it is not true that God loves her and that He would fail to help Syquia perform the exorcism.
Syquia recalls that the messages were brimming with anger and curses.
Syquia also says that the devil has power over anything electrical.
If a place is infested, for example, and the demon wants its presence known, the lights will normally blink.
And it has happened to him several times that when he gives a talk and uses a special device; the devil easily turns it off because he is an expert in anything electrical.
It has also happened to the Polish exorcist Father Marian Rajchel who was trying to expel the demon from a girl and the demon used the teenager’s cell phone to attack him through messages.
One message read, “Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Moron. Pathetic old man.” [SD note: demons also use people to send ugly messages.]
And Father Stephen Rossetti tells of three of the most difficult cases he has ever had.
The text dialogue in the first case was as follows between the demon and an exorcist from his team:
“Your torments begin now, priest … all night.”
“We will make her suffer.
“Be ready. We come for you and the girl.”
And the priest answers him with the following text: “Go in the Name of Jesus!”
“Stop. She will perish,” replied the demon.
“Come on, annihilate her, priest. Do it. If you don’t, we will.”
And the priest returns the text: “Vade retro satan.” [“Get back, Satan.”]
“Stop,” says the demon.
And the priest writes again: “I sprinkle you with the Blood of Jesus”
“We will hurt her more, we hate you, stop guiding her.”
“There is no power in the priesthood.”
“You are weak, you know there is nothing you can do to help her.”
Then the priest sends a text message saying “You will be crushed by the heel of Our Lady. Vade!”
“Stop. We’re having fun with her,” replied the demon.
And the priest again writes “Vade retro Satan.”
“We are not leaving,” replied the demon.
In a second case, the demon sent messages to the mother of the possessed.
The message said, “Don’t worry. I’ll take care of her. There is nothing else you can do to help her. You have tried to help her, but you have failed at that.
“There is no more time to help, just wait and watch.
“She is in good hands, you cannot protect her from us.”
“Just so you know, it’s going to be interesting; you won’t know when we’ll get there, but we will; let’s have a little fun.”
And in a third case, the demonic texts were received by the father of a possessed young woman:
“Your baby and I are going to have a fun night, you should have protected her more.”
“You are going to give up, you are going to wear yourself out. You will lose your patience. She is mine.”
“Say goodbye to your baby. You don’t know who I am, but I’m going for your baby.”
“She is mine.”
The phone belonged to the possessed woman who was in exorcism and a friend of the father’s who was in the other room heard the demon laugh on the possessed woman’s telephone.
And he saw the phone writing a text message without any human touching the keys.
Rossetti’s experience is that normally the texts appear to come from the phone of the possessed person, but when the phone is checked, these texts do not appear.
And the goal in these cases was to deter and discourage those who supported the possessed.
Well, so far what we wanted to tell you about how demons attack people in extraordinary ways that are rarely mentioned. [Take heart! Christ ALWAYS WINS!]
Sometimes it is through people the devil summons, who are generally from satanist sects and are in permanent contact with him.
And other times he attacks the exorcists or those who support the possessed, through text messages on the cell phone. [Thus do we always “pray without ceasing,” especially in these times!]
