You may have seen the video.
If not, we’re repeating it at the bottom.
It’s Father Dan Reehil, once a Wall Street banker and now exorcist in the Nashville area.
Striking was what he has to say about social media.
This starts with his description of a young woman, a violinist who was studying at the prestigious Julliard School in Manhattan, and about twenty years ago suffered a horrible possession, after openly telling a friend she’d give anything to be rich and famous.
“Guess who’s listening?” he told interviewer Michael Knowles of the Daily Wire. “Wasn’t long after that that she went to bed, had a dream, and in the dream was the most beautiful man she’d ever seen, naked, who asked, ‘Do you really want fame and power?’ She said, ‘I do,” and he produced a contract and he took his finger and slashed her finger and had her sign it in her blood. Then he touched the contract and it burst into flames and the ashes fell on the floor.
“What’s worst is that when she woke, her finger was cut — and the ashes were next to the bed.
“Within a couple of weeks, she signs for this multi-national tour, makes a ton of money, becomes very popular and famous in this circuit, and within a few years becomes involved with drugs, goes to needles, gets HIV. Now she’s dying in a New York hospital and this whole thing comes back to how this started and she calls her Filipino mother and tells her the story and mommy calls the chancery hysterical.”
The remedy was strange but worked: she was told by another exorcist to write out the whole Creed and sign it with her blood.
After she did, claims Father Reehil, she convulsed and — to the horror of her family — flat-lined. After ten minutes — her family hysterical — she suddenly came to, jumped off the table, and when she was tested, showed no more signs of HIV. Healed.
The rest of her life was dedicated to music giving glory to God.
Fame? Money? The devil is brilliant at disbursing that — in great abundance.
This brings us to social media — wherein everyone is seeking that clichic “fifteen minutes” of fame, and elsewhere seeking constantly to monetize.
