My Comment: Yes, there are more demonic episodes than ever before, you can see that in the daily news. You don’t have to look very far. And yes, Satan is alive and well and roaming the earth looking for whom he may devour. There are new portals opening every day into the occult and demonic realm. Paul warns: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12) These demonic portals are described in Revelation also in the seals and trumpets. The 5th & 6th trumpet describes this perfectly. (Revelation chapter 9)
(Excerpt from The Telegraph) Dioceses across Italy, as well as in countries such as Spain, are increasing the number of priests schooled in administering the rite of exorcism, fabled to rid people of possession by the Devil. The rise in demonic cases is a result of more people dabbling in practices such as black magic, paganism, Satanic rites and Ouija boards, often exploring the dark arts with the help of information readily found on the internet, the Church said. The increase in the number of priests being trained to tackle the phenomenon is also an effort by the Church to sideline unauthorised, self-proclaimed exorcists, and its tacit recognition that belief in Satan, once regarded by Catholic progressives as an embarrassment, is still very much alive.
