If you've ever cast out a devil, then you know there sometimes is backlash from demon forces. But a Polish priest is putting a whole new spin on retaliation.
Father Marian Rajchel, a parish priest in southeastern Poland, is claiming he started receiving texts after an exorcism on a teenage girl—from demons. That gives a whole new meaning to the "prince of the power of the air" (see Eph. 2:2).
Does he literally mean a demon is texting him? Well, no, not exactly. He claims a demon is influencing the girl to text him after a failed deliverance.
"She will not come out of this hell. She's mine. Anyone who prays for her will die," read one message from the girl, according to UPI. Another message read: "Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher."
"The author of these texts is an evil spirit who has possessed her soul," the Austria Times reports Rajchel as saying. "Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are being used like this, however, in this case it is clear. Clearly this young girl has been possessed and needs further help."
Do you believe in deliverance ministry? Have you ever experienced retaliation from the enemy after healing the sick or casting out devils (see Matt. 10:8)?
