Demonology: TEAM!

by Michael Chapman

I've had an unusual number of requests lately of people inquiring about getting into the field of spiritual warfare on an unusually high level. 

There are so many factors that go into investigating alleged cases of extraordinary demonic activity that one scarcely knows where to begin. It takes knowledge, education, experience, a calling, a firmly rooted salvation in Christ that has the four-fold aspect of: a moral life, a faith life, a sacramental life and a prayer life ... as well as other factors that have a bearing on how effective one can be. Another crucial factor, in my opinion, is to never, ever go it alone.

Our team is made up of older, mature individuals from a number of backgrounds, including law enforcement, nursing, education, information technology and other professional fields. It is also important to have immediate access to a psychologist, a medical doctor, and of course - clergy, including the advice/expertise of a mandated exorcist on difficult cases. We are blessed to have this in place, and have an entire support team around us, including access to respected team leaders and members of like-minded people around the nation, and even overseas, who we can cross-pollinate with and share information as the need arises (especially prayer requests). Entire other posts could cover the need for at least a minimum of equipment; sound and effective methodology; correct motivation and so forth, but it starts with the people one chooses to share this work with.

Of course, the ultimate "source" that one chooses to work with in this work - when properly done - is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. He actually is the One who chooses us.

If you are thinking about whether to get into this field, please consider what has been said here very, very seriously.
