DEMONOLOGIST. The word conjures up all kinds of dark images and misunderstood themes. The fact it starts out with the word DEMON seems to bring that foreboding due to a couple millennia of humanity’s mythology and subconscious training to fear them.
I have been a practicing Demonologist for twenty-two years now. I started almost seven years to the day after I was delivered up from black witchcraft and gave myself to Christ. In those seven years, I battled my former coven, defending myself from their spiritual attacks and attempts to curse me, as well as, an occasional conjured demon to do their work. I was introduced to spiritual warfare, demonic exorcism, and began to study religious texts of different cultures to know the mannerisms, methods of infestation and possession, and the tools to fight them.
I also learned that not everything we experience is a demon, and found a place within paranormal research and investigations to discern and discover the truth. One of my key working phrases I use for investigations is “Eliminate the Normal, Everything Else is Paranormal”. People can be misled, confused, even self-deceived about what they experience, which I think the proliferation of “haunts” recently is due to the popularity of dozens of paranormal investigation shows such as “Ghost Hunters”, “Ghost Adventures”, “Ghost Lab” and things like “Celebrity Ghost Stories”. This is why it is critical we go into a house more skeptic and doubter, seeking out natural and normal causes for what people are experiencing. Once all that is stripped away – that’s what we seek to document to show proof of the paranormal. Over the past twenty-two years I have been demonologist, spiritual warrior, paranormal researcher and investigator, spiritual counselor, and pastor. However, first and foremost – I am a servant of God and in that – a demonologist.
There are no “true” schools of higher learning to become a demonologist. Demonology is a study of demons. Only the Vatican has a program of training for their priests regarding demons and exorcism, but that is not open to non-Catholics or non-believers. I’m going to make a lot of people mad out there, but I have experience and truth on my side in this – you do not need to be “certified” or “licensed” to be a demonologist. People claiming to be running schools in it to certify you are scamming you. They are in it for the profit.
Being a Demonologist is not a calling. It is a field of study and people get it confused with being an Exorcist. However taking it to the next step and being a deliverance minister is a calling from God, our Heavenly Father, one that is usually accompanied by the gift of Discernment anointed upon you by the Holy Spirit. A deliverance minister cannot be an atheist, a Gnostic, a wiccan, or anything else but a born-again believer and Christian, one who has accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. We as human beings are flawed and weak, fractured creatures whose wills can be easily bent by the demonic. Earth is THEIR domain, given that authority by God. Lucifer caused a third of the Angels to war against God and Heaven. The Archangel Michael, the only equal to Lucifer, led the Heavenly forces and defeated Lucifer. He was cast from Heaven and given domain and authority on earth.
However, when Christ gave fulfillment of the Law, was crucified as the Prophets foretold, died and after three days, rose again renewed and resurrected, He defeated once again Satan, freeing us of the blood sin, by washing our sin with His blood. In his glory and conquering of Satan, He now had Authority over Satan. We as humans and followers of Christ, can call upon Christ’s authority to cast out and command demons who interfere with our work and path here, especially when it interferes with God’s Will for us. Only be calling upon the Authority of Christ and the anointing with His Blood, can we do this work. So – how can someone who does not believe in God, Satan, Angels, or Demons – rightfully and believably fight demons where they infest and possess? They cannot.
A demonologist must spend his/her time cataloging and studying demons, studying, comprehending, and referencing religious texts and their references of the demonic, study demonic mythology of various cultures. One part of the gift of discernment is to be able to identify true demonic presence and signs. Regardless of Hollywood – you DO NOT need to know the name of the demon present, it DOES NOT give you any additional power over it – you have none – only Christ does. You also need to be able to discern false doctrines and references as well. I’m going to anger a bunch more people here. The Book of Enoch and the Lower Keys of Solomon are not true and accurate books of demonology. The Book of Enoch is a hoax, a forgery, it was not used in the time of Aaron, it did not predate any Catholic Bible. It is an occult deceit and forgery to lead those fighting demons along a false trail. The same is true of the Lower Keys of Solomon, it was devised from a 18th Century French Grimoire that listed 69 demons and assigned European titles to them. These titles did not exist in King Solomon’s time. The Lower Keys added 3 more demons to the list. Allegedly, the book claims Solomon was a great wizard and used demons to do his bidding. It is an attempt by the Occult to strip Christians and confuse them of the truth, that King Solomon was a great servant of the Lord, wise, but flawed. He still did great works, and created the Songs of Solomon.
However knowledge will only get you so far. You must engage and help people afflicted by a demonic infestation or possession. You don’t do it for accolades or glory. You do it to help heal, to bring peace of mind, and help people back on the right path, all for the glory of God.
If you would like help, I can consult with you and your group. I do so free of charge. I am currently based out of the Atlanta, Georgia area. I am offering my services and experience to all paranormal groups, so that the Truth can be found out there, and these groups can be protected. I do not charge for this. I can be reached through my website at http://www.ArchangelParanormal.com.
I am also seeking fellow Christians that are involved in the paranormal investigative field, with emphasis in deliverance. I launched the Spiritual Warriors Network a few months ago, and it is a growing network of born again Christians that serve as deliverance clergy, demonologists, prayer warriors, and investigative teams. Our goal is to help spread God’s Truth and assist fellow Christians oppressed by the demonic who have been turned away by their local churches and clergy.
