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

          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 buildabergera, 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.
