The effects of spirits are many — far beyond what we, with the eyes of earth, normally reckon.
One effect we often ignore, or do not connect, is disruption of electronics.
Air conditioners can go on the blink. So can a refrigerator. Or perhaps your computer, your modem, your router. Your phone. Lamps.
Satan knows this turf. Did he not fall as a bolt of electricity?
Delicate stuff, based on the flow of electrons, are electronic systems. It doesn’t take much to disrupt. Car alternators. Television.
Those in deliverance ministry — as well as those who investigate unsettled souls — will tell you it’s a classic sign, electrical effects, that something or someone may be roaming.
“Demons occupy a house and appear in electrical goods. Let’s not forget that Satan and his followers have immense powers. It is normal for domestic appliances to be involved and for demons [to] make their presence known via electricity.” (This was a priest who conducted thousands of exorcisms.)
Think back on your own situations. Or glance at the “threads” on chat sites about what at first glance would seem like an innocuous household issue: smoke-detectors, set off mysteriously or at poignant moments.
It can be dust, explain blog entries on one site; or a tiny bug; or a bad detector, triggering the system. Even a battery. And this is true: Such explanations are often the most probable. (One always considers physical causation first.)
One who goes by “sharma101″:
“I have had this issue and someone explained I needed to get my house checked for the unknown. It turned out it was a spirit passing by and the spirit triggered off the alarm. After doing a spiritual cleansing on the house, it stopped completely. Please don’t just sit back. It actually means you are not alone in that house. You cannot see them but they can see you.”
How does the author of that entry know it was a spirit?
Hopefully, not by consulting a medium.
As for “cleansing”: for us, that means prayer over every part of the house and administering blessed salt, anointed oil, or Holy Water (or all three).
There can be manifestations, and note the times:
Peculiar it is how many of the entries (on this blogsite called “Houzz,” a secular one to do with normal household maintenance) explain that their alarms went off at the strange and some would say witching hour of three a.m.
