37 Raised In Evil By Phil Scovell Charlotte, not her real name, is a 32 year old black woman whom I met after she found my website. I am mentioning her ethnic heritage only so that you might better understand her testimony of healing I am about to describe. Charlotte is, what I call, a low level Satanic Ritual Abuse survivor. By my own definition, this means, she wasn't kidnapped as a baby, or a small child, by a Satanic cult, then tortured, emotionally fractured into alternate personalities, and mentally programmed to respond to certain hand signals and spoken codes. She was, on the other hand, and not by choice, raised in witchcraft. She has given her permission to share some of the details of her life with you. When Charlotte first called me, she was a very frightened and confused young woman. Her entire life consisted of anxiety and panic attacks, voices in her head, fear of crowds, nightmares, demonic manifestations, and bazaar physical maladies which stumped physicians who could find no cause for her physical infirmities. Charlotte's entire life and bright future, as well as her career, had been destroyed. She had tried finding help in every conceivable way including psychiatric, medical, and spiritual. By spiritual, I mean at least two things. Before her life as a born again Christian solidified, she had even sought the advice and counsel of mediums and psychics. Later, as she began attending church faithfully, she sought the prayers and counsel and the experience of deliverance ministers. If the reader is unfamiliar with the term "Deliverance," it means a person, or group of people, who believe God has called them and gifted them to cast out unclean spirits. In some denominations, such people are called "Exorcists." She found no relief in any of her attempts for help. By the way, the word "exorcist" is used in the Bible. (See Acts 19:30). At age 18, Charlotte, due to her scholastic abilities, was given a scholarship to a private college. Once enrolled as a freshman, everything settled into a normal routine of college life. Unfortunately, she never made it through the first year. One evening, several of the girls were meeting together in a student's room of the dorm before going to bed when Charlotte was suddenly physically overcome by something that made her body burn as if she had been set afire. The pain and fear were so great, she had to crawl on her hands and knees part of the way back to her room. Later, when the symptoms subsided slightly, she was able to get to a telephone to call her mother for help. She was picked up shortly thereafter and taken to a doctor. They could not find a thing wrong with her yet the physical aberration remained. Utter fear and panic settled in her mind and body and she found it impossible to function normally. She was placed on psychotropic pharmaceuticals and dropped out of school. For the next 14 years, Charlotte frequently returned to physicians for strange and weird physical maladies. She explained to me on the telephone that she was a light complected black woman but one day, her neck turn black as ink but the rest of her body color stayed the same. Doctors could find nothing wrong. Another time, she felt as if worms or snakes were literally slowly crawling around on the inside of her body. Doctors ran tests and x-rays and could find nothing causing the sensation. These are only a couple of examples; there were many more. She was unable to consistently remain employed; finding it difficult to remain on the job for any length of time due to her every changing physical and emotional and psychological state of mind. Before I met Charlotte, I was praying in my office one day. I clearly felt the Lord impressing me to spend more time in prayer for myself. I asked the Lord why and He clearly said in my thoughts, "Because, you are going to be dealing more and more with the demonic realm." I had already been doing this with a number of people with whom I was praying so the impression I felt I was receiving from the Holy Spirit puzzled me until, two weeks later, Charlotte called me for the first time. Over a period of about six months, Charlotte and I prayed together twice a week. Her life was more complicated and spiritually distorted than anyone I had met to date. There was almost never a prayer session that there wasn't a demonic manifestation which presented itself to block the healing The True Lord Jesus Christ was bringing into her life. The demonics often spoke through her voice to me or manifested in tangible ways in, or tactually, on her physical body. SRA survivors, Satanic Ritual abuse, in my limited experience, come in various degrees. Charlotte, for example, was never a member of any cult or occult. She did not dabble in any forms of witchcraft, divination, or in any Satanic rituals. She wasn't wiccan or any other form of aspect of the occult. She didn't practice meditation techniques such as transcendental meditation or any other such meditative methodology that can easily expose the mind to the demonic realm. She was never involved in any eastern religious practices or beliefs. She never used an Ouija Board. She did, before understanding Christianity and being discipled, visited a number of psychics trying to determine what was wrong with her life. Yet, in our very first prayer session, the demonic manifestations began to the degree that sometimes even her mouth felt as if it were physically being manipulated externally. Many Christians today find it difficult, it not down right impossible, to believe that there is really any such thing as SRA or Satanic Ritual Abuse. This is likely due to the numbers of fakes and fraud who have paraded before the television cameras in large evangelical ministries, making their claims of being witches that claimed they were skilled in both the black and white arts, warlocks, psychics, remote viewers, former occult shamans, witch doctors or medicine men, Wicca masters, devil worshipers, voodoolists, sorceress, high priests or priestess Satanists, cannibals, sword swallowers, glass eaters, acupuncturists, former Charismatic pastors, former Roman Catholics, Former Baptist pastors, human sacrificers, yoga masters, contortionists, ballet dancers, Karate grand masters, former goldfish swallowers, ping pong champions, and former red communists, only later to be exposed as counterfeits. A little humor there, of course, but it does get a little ridiculous at times, I must admit. Most Christians acknowledge there must be some devil worshippers out there because they've heard of Satanic covens, Wiccans, Luciferian groups, secret societies such as the Scull and Bones, the Buildabergers, the Bohemian Grove, Freemasonry, The Trilateralists, the Council on Foreign Relations, and Globalists of all kinds. Did I leave anybody out? Yet, when it comes to demonic activity associated with a Christian, Bible Believers immediately begin back pedaling. Some, for that matter, never even get on the bicycle in the first place. In that case, there is no need to even consider any back pedaling. Why? It is called FEAR in capital letters. As I have already mentioned, Charlotte was not a member of any Satanic cults but when she was a baby, her mother married a man who was involved in all sorts of Satanic practices. He claimed he was a warlock or some crazy thing like that. She was molested as a child. She was likely dedicated to the Prince of Darkness in some type of Satanic ceremony, too, based upon some fragments of memories she has. Honestly, some people will believe anything. Except for Christians, of course, and they often only believe what someone taught them without ever once questioning its validity. One day, in a prayer session, Charlotte told me that she had a brother who was a carpet layer. Many years after her mother had divorced Charlotte's step father, her brother came over to lay knew carpet in her mother's living room. Pulling the old carpet up, they found a picture of a large devil's head drawn on the floor covering most of the living room area. Yes, her brother removed it before putting down the new carpet. I could tell you much more about Charlotte but perhaps she'll write her own testimony some day because it would take a book. You might like to know that Charlotte is walking free now. The Enemy has no control over her life. She isn't afraid of crowds any longer. She no longer hates and wishes to kill her step father. She has a job now which she is able to handle quite well which is something she has never been able to do. If you are a Christian who finds such testimonies ridiculous, unbiblical, fraudulent, or right down stupid, I invite you to sit with me as I pray with people who have these abnormal things occurring in their lives. They are mentally ill? Oh, really? sure, some pastors come up with such ridiculous conclusions, and some professionals may have arrived at such a diagnosis and treated them medically, gaining some form of normality in their lives, but my question then is, what are they doing calling and being led by the Lord to me? I'm not a professional. I never graduated from Bible college. I only took one psychology class when I was in school and diagnosed myself on the spot as neurotic and prayed God would never call me into any form of counseling ministry. I have a limited education. I am not a Deliverance Minister nor do I wish to be. I am not successful. I've filed for bankruptcy twice in my life. I'm a poor speller. If it weren't for computers and word processors with spell checkers, I couldn't even right. I could probably trace letters if somebody showed me how. On top of everything else, I am also totally blind. Who in their right mind would come to a blind guy for help as described in this testimony? I sure wouldn't. So, if these people, such as Charlotte, and many others with whom I have prayed and talked with who have similar demonic manifestations are mentally ill, why aren't they being set free? Can't psychologists and psychiatrists deal with such things or do they choose not to because of what they have been taught? I know some licensed therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrist who do, in fact, know exactly how to pray with such people and do so on a daily bases. Shoot, I even know some pastors who work with such people. Did they learned this in medical school or universities or seminaries? Not likely. If you are a Christian, you know the answer to these questions. You may think this is an article about demons, unclean spirits, devil hunting, or demon possession, something I don't even believe in, or maybe you just think this is a brag. Well, if you think the latter, you would be right. Brag, I mean. It is a brag on Jesus and what He can do through prayer. The real purpose of this testimony isn't to get you to believe in demons; it is to get you to believe in prayer in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ. It won't work for you? You are listening to the wrong voice if you believe that. Oh, one more thing. I never chose, asked, or requested God call me into this ministry. It is easy for me to plead, at times, "Why me, Lord?" Especially when even Christians choose not to believe and label what you do as psycho heresy. One thing I know for a fact. Jesus is Lord and He utterly changed Charlotte's life as a Christian.
