Viral Video: Woman Lashes out at Texas Patrol Officers | Leading Many to Wonder: “Is This Demonic Possession?”

Also included: Russ Dizdar’s Interview Discussing Satanic Ritual Abuse

In a chilling video that’s gone viral, a woman who was arrested at the Texas border last week for human smuggling reacts in an extremely disturbing way as the patrol officers are putting her in the vehicle.

Many have mentioned the possibility of demonic possession, whether they are serious in their comment, or making a non-serious jab at what they just witnessed. But of course we shouldn’t discount mental illness, or perhaps the result of a drug-induced psychosis, or something similar.

But seeing as this comes right on the heel of my previous post, the timing of it was rather peculiar and something I couldn’t ignore.

Again, it is unclear what exactly happened to lead this woman to behave in such a manner. Is she acting, perhaps in an attempt to plead insanity?

The answers aren’t too clear, and we likely won’t hear the truth of the matter irregardless.

But since it is my sincere belief that we are indeed in a spiritual battle, whether this woman is a demonically possessed participant or not, I wanted to highlight the point made by a SRA [Satanic Ritual Abuse] investigator who reveals the “plan” that the luciferians/satanists have to unleash upon the world in order to initiate their “one world order” agenda.

This interview was conducted in 2012. Sadly, Russ Dizdar, the SRA investigator and Christian advocate featured below, passed away on October 18, 2021.

While it could be a coincidence, we have to ask ourselves, “Are certain people being systemically wiped out under the guise of “COVID”?” David Goldberg, someone with alleged ties to the White House, certainly seemed to think so, as he was trying to expose the Project Pogo/Project Zyphr plot. And it certainly does bear an uncanny relation to what’s been going on these last couple of years.

And seeing as how Russ Dizdar was an avid opponent of SRA, would make him a likely candidate on the hit list.

Tying into the “elephant in the room“, here is Russ Dizdar explaining the far reaching goals of this satanic cult.

Full transcript below. Some embellishment has been added for emphasis. Also please be aware that there is some disturbing content.
Some words were undetermined. My apologies.

Interviewer: “What is the black awakening?”

Russ Dizdar: “It’s related to the red horse prophecy in revelation. It’s related to 2 Thessalonians 2, when it says about the day of {…} that day will not occur until the apocalypse of the antichrist and the apostasia or the word ‘rebellion’ or ‘revolt’. That’s all really defined in the prophecy of the red horse.

But here’s where the term came from, and why I used it purposely. When I started dealing with ritually abused individuals, then we dealt with military oriented, highly trained, you know, programmed shooters/assassins, inside of them. What we were going to do with them, I dealt with someone from Fort Bragg for quite awhile, and a few others, we’re sitting at a lake, {…} Lake, they reached over, ripped open my shirt to see if I was wired, if I was wiring and recording them.

And they were the most sophisticated satanic warrior type person. They knew 5/6 languages, they knew the ancient twilight languages, they knew how to conjure, they knew – they knew how to use Belthazhare [sp?], all these old Pictish language of the Druids, to summon. They were, they’re the real luciferian. They’ve been through many human sacrificial things. So they sat there to tell me some of those things, what they’ve been involved with, how they sacrificed a human.

I’m listening to all this stuff from them, and then they said to me, ‘You have no idea, Russ, how many of us there are out there. How many satanic chosen’ – they used the term “chosen ones”, – ‘you have no idea how many, you have no idea what’s coming. We smell Christian blood. We are waiting for our day. And, when the call is given, millions of us will be released.’ And they looked at me and said, ‘You believe in revivals and you believe in Pentecost and the power of God, you believe in all that. We believe in the Black Awakening.

A multi-continental release of power to activate the program, demonized; where they’ve weaponized the powers to these super-soliders.” [editor’s note: Who keeps talking about “super-soldiers”? – Engineering Humans for War | Inside the Pentagon’s efforts to create a super-soldier—and change the future of the battlefield]

Interviewer: “Are they waiting for a specific time to unleash their power?”

Russ Dizdar: “Yeah they are, because they have to do it, at the moment the antichrist is, like we read in 2 Thessalonians 2, that it’s caught the echo – the restrainer is holding back… the apocalypse of the antichrist. The unveiling in his movement. So right now, he’s held, restrained. Soon as he who restrains is removed, soon as that occurs, we have white horse, the release of the antichrist.

Instantly we have the release of the red – it says the whole earth, – a piece is taken of the whole earth and all of a sudden, it doesn’t give the details, but all of a sudden, on a global scale, people are released to be in due – the Greek word is sphazó, slaughter; begin to slaughter people. It’s used of animal ritual butchery. To be to slaughter individuals. That’s exactly how they define it to be, back in the ’90s. And we’ve heard this again and again and again.

So that scenario fits the Masonic version of chaos before a New World Order, it fits Father Myrmydon, the Cathedral of the Black Goat, you know, his book, The Devil’s Bible. It fits that scenario too. So some of the oldest, darkest occultists, the idea of chaos first, a collapsing of everything, so that a new order can rise. That’s all by design.

And we’ve been given a heads up in prophecy, but all prophecy has boots on the ground. It’ll all, you know, eventually happen. So, I do believe that millions and millions of these trade, program, altered, demonized, super-soldiers, whether we want to say it or not, they believe they are of the – they’re being raised to help bring the antichrist in.

When I was in England just a few months ago, their top guy that deals with SRA, Wilford Wong, 25 years, so, first time I meet him I pull him aside and I said, ‘Listen. You’ve been doing this 25 years’‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘You know all about programming and demons and all that?’‘Yes.’ I said, I looked right at him and I says, ‘Wilford, why are they here in England?’ Instantly, he said, ‘They’re here to collapse our government. They’re here to help bring in and usher in the antichrist new order.’ He already knew.

That’s true in Germany, when we were in Germany. When we went to Babelsberg Castle. True in Poland, when we went there. It’s true in Switzerland. It’s true in Canada. So when we talk about our research in 38 years, worldwide, there may be well over a hundred million, generations of them. And, if even half, or even – even if 10% were intact, say in the United States.

Remember the shooter in Vegas? Look what he did. Look what that guy did. Okay. Notice, what would happen if 10,000 of them, or like Colorado Holmes, or like Jared in Arizona, what if 10,000 of them were released in one week?

That’s their, that’s their plot plan, and biblical prophecies ahead of that to say, here is what is going to happen, and from that a, you know, global monitoring collapse from that. That’s – all that chaos is coming. So Revelation 13, a whole new order, with the antichrist can come.

Interviewer: “It’s scary stuff.”

Russ Dizdar: “Yep. It can be. It’s scary for the world. For us, we know, no matter what – “

Interviewer:Embolden with the Holy Spirit. So, man… it’s just, wow. Alright, so, so does SRA exist and if so how prevalent is it in society today?”

Russ Dizdar: “Yeah, Satanic Ritual Abuse, and I can say this way, it not only exists – Satanic Ritual Abuse is inseparably connected to multiple personality disorder. All of society knows, since the late ’70s, and even the DSM-III [DSM-3], DSM-IV [DSM-4], those are the diagnostic manuals for psychology. They all know that multiple, all of a sudden, multiplicity started showing up everywhere. They call it DID [Dissociative Identity Disorder] now.

So the secular world, they’re registering millions coming in for diagnosis on them. Now they don’t know how to handle the satanic side. So, I’m going to tell you this straight up, after 38 years of dealing with it, not only is SRA real here in the United States, that there are millions of victims. By design. That there’s now generations of them. We deal with 65 and 70 year olds. They are the first generation. Then we go to 40 year olds and 20 year olds. I got 8 year olds and 12 year olds we’re dealing with. Cause if you don’t stop this somewhere, they do it to the next generation. That’s by design. That’s the way it’s supposed to be for them.

So, but it occurs in selection. Um, it’s generational, simply to say they bring a lot of trauma to the child, to cause split in personality, so that they can demonize and/or begin to program. ‘You’re going to be a witch, you’re going to be a conjurer, you’re going to be a program-shooter’, all kinds of these things happen.

And then, they’re raised in that system; they’re raised to keep all of that hidden down, and just kind of have little Joey up, or little Sally up, and they may not know until they’re 15/16. They may not know what’s inside them until later on. But millions have already showed up at psych wards all across America since the late ’70s to this day. More coming.

Now here’s their side of it. We’ve been to Canada. Scotland. Geneva, Switzerland. Germany. Poland. They’re all over there. We just got back from Scotland, UK, and we met one of the guys there. One of the leaders in the whole nation of the subject, and same issue.

It stems from the original Nazis creating a master race. Wherever the Nazis went, in the early ’50s, ratlines all around the planet, wherever you see them going to escape, then you see the rise of SRA. So we need to rename this. SRA, that’s the tools to hammer this in and to augment these people and to bring the demonization and to create them. But really, it is part of the master race development, that started back in the late ’30s, and Hitler’s goal was to create 200 million of them. That was his stated goal.”

Interviewer:Are demons scared of Holy Spirit filled Christians?

Russ Dizdar:They sure are. As many times – many times, if a real Spirit-filled, strong believer walks into a room, obviously they know that. Like the one demon in scripture, ‘Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you?’ Because they didn’t have the Spirit of God.

So they know us. And I think usually they… they might even feel us coming, or sense us before we even sense them. But let’s remember. Greater is the Holy Spirit in us, than any demon. So we should have great perception too.

But when we do walk in a room, yeah, I believe out of all my experience, let alone scripture, they know a real Spirit-filled believer. And they’ll want to try and stay down, or get the person to leave the room. They want to get out of there. We gotta remember, in James, they shudder, they tremble even at the name Jesus.

So a real believer, that knows who they are, and know what they’re doing… they walk in a room, it’s the other way around. Even though they want to play the game of scare you and do whatever – all that kind of stuff, the authority we’ve been given is so decimating to them; that’s why they go out screaming at times. They scream and screech going out at times. Because that authority is so overwhelming.”

Interviewer: “Wow. So can a person be demon-possessed and not know it?”

Russ Dizdar: “I believe that they can be demon-possessed, and think it’s something else. A new age – ‘I’ve got a spirit guide. I’ve got a – ‘, we had one lady come in, ‘I have a family animal, ancestral animal spirit, and this is a good thing for our family.’ So we said, ‘Let’s test it.’ The pastor that was in our office says, just at the doorway, look and say, ‘In the name – ‘ as soon as he began to pray, he said, ‘In the name of Jesus – ‘, this, she called it a bear spirit, this demon manifested and just was ready to attack him and grab – he rebuked it, cast it out of her, she went to the ground. She began to cry. She said, ‘I had no idea! I didn’t know what it was!’

We gotta remember, Satan can masquerade, remember that scripture? He can masquerade; it’s the word ‘metaschēmatizō’. He can morph his presence, tactically, for deception, without changing his nature. So he can get into – that’s why people believe aliens are here and this – or ancient, Great White Brotherhood and things like that, these ancient spirits. Their power to masquerade and play and tactically do whatever they need to get the allowability to get in.

So I do think some people have stuff, we’ve seen this, they have stuff – they know something’s there. They’re not – maybe they opened a door somewhere or whatever. But once somebody comes to express authority and all of a sudden, full-blown manifestation occurs… they’re like, ‘I had no idea. I thought it was just a helper spirit guide. I just thought it was an enhancement.’ And they have no idea the depth of it. And so, it can be they don’t know the full depth of it until some engagement occurs.”

Interviewer: “Is it possible to cast a demon out of yourself, through fasting and prayer?”

Russ Dizdar: “Yeah it is. I think, and again, as a believer, you know, when you get saved, now there might be people… and when I say possession, I mean if a demon, like Mark 5, that guy couldn’t get saved on his own. That guy couldn’t do anything on his own, cause he was so controlled. So, ultimately that level of possession needed an outsider to help them, and then lead him to Jesus. And look what happened in his life.

So, but when a believer does have some kind of attachment, something, or whatever else, and they realized, whatever, they were deeply into something and then they come to the Lord but yet something they didn’t close the door on, I believe in what some people call auto-deliverance. Where, well, if you know your authority… I even believe, that all of a sudden a believer realizes something’s here, and it shouldn’t be because I’m a believer now, ‘Jesus deliver me.’ Just go in the Lord, that can happen because He wants everything cleared out anyway.

So you can have a deliverance that way, or if you’re a believer and say, ‘Well I know my authority.’ And, you know, but know the legal right. Know the reason why it’s there. So that you can renounce that doorway or that practice and say, ‘Never again. You have no rights here.’

Interviewer: “Awesome. Alright. So, are some people more susceptible to demonic attacks than others?

Russ Dizdar: “Yeah, I’d say, well, and again, it would come down to, number one, if you’re lost. Ephesians chapter 2, Satan is the prince of the power of the air; the spirit who now works in those who are disobedient. So when you’re lost, he has rights to you anyway. Uh, not just to jump in to be full possession. You need more, even more access, but he has rights overall; you’re lost, you have no defense.

So the issue is, if you’ve been raised in a family of psychics or voodoo practitioners. So even if you’re raised in some stuff, or if you opened the doors, you’re just going to go out and do, you know, smoke up and acid… You get into that world, those kinds of doorways can open, little by little by little.

So… I think some are more vulnerable depending on what’s around them, if their moms or dads were witches or satanists, and things, and they’ve never repented. So the spirits want to come down to the next generation. So even that is an extra pressure, when a son or daughter, you know, they didn’t do anything. But because the mom or dad opened the doors, they want to come down that family line and go after. So that a son or daughter, or even a grandchild may have more undue pressure.”

Interviewer: “So are generational curses real in your view?”

Russ Dizdar: “Yeah, I believe they’re real, and they’re called familiar spirits in the Old Testament, meaning they’re familiar in the family line, or familiar with an area. So if my grandfather was a satanist and he was really a practitioner, first, when he died, he would want to do a ritual to hand it all down, all those powers down, to somehow – but if he doesn’t, and the spirits come out, or even if the spirits are on him, they’re always looking for more access.

And they want, like in the Old Testament, they want the whole tribe. They don’t only want the grandpa, or the dad – they want the family. Then they want the tribe; that’s why the whole tribes were infested. They want the, they want everything.

So they’re going to go after… if a dad or mom or grandmother or grandfather, opens those big doors, it gives that spirit even – well, either way, they’re just going to come after to bring influence. It doesn’t mean a grandson or granddaughter’s going to be automatically influenced. Or taken over, or they’re going to become a satanist, or a witch. But there’s undue influence. Because of the moms and dads or anybody else.

You can be in a dormitory in college, and you got a guy who’s deeply into something, voodoo and practicing spirits, whatever, and you’re in the same room; you’re going to have problems. You can be vulnerable to attack, vulnerable to influence, to, you know, open a gateway to let them in. So, in that sense, yeah, you can be more vulnerable.”

Interviewer: “Okay. Next question. What can a Christian do to protect themselves against demonic attacks initiated by other people through the use of black magic ritual and/or spells?”

Russ Dizdar: “I’m glad you asked the question, because that’s – all of us have regular warfare as believers. We read in Ephesians 6, ‘our struggles not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities and powers’ and we’re commanded to put on the armor of God so we can be strong and bold. We also have been given authority. And this is important for us to know, because you saw in the crowds we just saw here, I asked how many of you know your authority? Over 90% did not. Jesus had to give you authority to trample, to tread, to crush, blow, the work of the enemy and to overcome all the power of the enemy.

So what’s happening now is, and all the SRAs know this, for decades now, they’ve been summoning spirits, just like the Old Testament. Summoning spirits and sending them with assignment. Or putting a demon on an object to give, to bring a curse. Voodoo can do this, Santeria can, on a lighter level, but still do this, the Saint of Death in Mexico, with millions and millions. The drug lords are doing it. They’re doing rituals and doing human sacrifice to fight each other at times, too.

So when a demon is summoned and sent against you, and you feel all – there is the sense that there is a real impact, the awareness is number one, but the authority you have, if you’ll respond immediately, saying that, ‘Lord’, just say it first, ‘Lord, what is this? What’s going on here?’ Spirit of God is in you, ‘What’s going on here?’ But immediately respond, ‘I renounce this, I command this to be broken. You will have no effect on me. I rebuke this.’ And then I pray for the sender. ‘Lord, engage them. Whoever they are.’

Or like in astral projection, too. But whoever they are, if they have summoned and said – We’ve had some high maguses do stuff. Blood rituals. We’ve had pictures drawn, pictures sent to us of a child sacrifice, saying, ‘Russ, we did this for you.’ And they conjured it and sent.

So, and the good news is, we can preempt a lot of things. Everyday, when I’m in my prayer time, I want a – ‘Lord, is there anything that’s been done, anything sent my way, I want to hit it now.’

Are there covens? Now what we do is we locate these underground groups. And we map them out on paper. And we target them. We come against any and all the demonic stuff they’re doing, we pray for exposure, and we pray for God to engage the people. To bring them to their knees, all, to save them. So you look at Saul of Tarsus, how God brought him down. I think that can happen too.”

Interviewer: “Amen. Alright. Can – next question. Can demons jump from person to person? Or do they stay in one place?”

Russ Dizdar: “They can, if there’s access. Not like the movie Fallen. To where it just, you brush somebody and whatever else.

Now, a highly demonized person, notice in the scripture, Jesus doesn’t touch them. But it came to healing, he touched and power went out to heal. But when it came to manifesting demons, he just spoke. And he didn’t touch them. Because they – they’re going to want to try. [editor’s note: there will be an account of this after the transcript]

Anybody who knows demons and powers – we had a voodoo, really heavy duty {…}. Well actually, he always called himself a ‘babalao’ [Babaaláwo or Babalawo], so he would want to come, with all the demons in him, and he would want to grab you, he would try at least to try and want to release them on you.

So, um, but in just in passing somebody, they just don’t have a right. There’s always – they have to have some kind of right in order to really, you know, grab a hold and do something.”

Interviewer: “Can a Christian be demon possessed?”

Russ Dizdar: “A Christian cannot be demon possessed like a non-Christian. Non-Christian has nothing in them so they can be body, soul and spirit, completely taken over.

The Greek word for, we read in English for possession is ‘daimonizois’, meaning demonization. So there’s levels to it.

So I don’t believe a real believer, born-again, can. You can have attachments. You can have, of course, obviously, they attack and they do other things in your life, but a real believer, we read in Ephesians 4, if you give the devil a foothold, the greek word topon [topos], meaning, you give the enemy a legal right, not possession, but to grab a hold of an area. And then you have a level of demonization that has to be dealt with. Repentance and renunciation, brings freedom. So not in the exact same way as a non-Christian.”

Interviewer: “Okay. How is it possible for a saved person or person who claims to be saved, to manifest a demon?”

Russ Dizdar: “For a saved person to manifest? Again, that idea that here, if here they are, and they’ve gotten into something, and there’s a something hanging on right here, so that if you go after that, if it’s strong enough, that there can be that kind of reaction.

Now there’s another issue here for the SRA people we work with. Where their personalities have been split. Purposely split for this purpose. So you can have demons on parts of them, and see nothing up here. And similarly, on just a regular believer, that if they have grieved the Spirit of God, if they have given in to something to give the enemy some kind of right, or whatever else to hang onto, there can be a real sense of manifestation, from that level. And that’s a pretty serious issue.

That’s why the Spirit of God says, you know, when it deals with the anger side of it; cause that can cause that. Not immediately. A person can be angry and no demons. But if you stay… in the old, you get into the flesh, the old sin nature, long enough, and you stay there, well then the enemy has a legal right, you’ve given him a foothold, so you have a real grabbing a hold. So there can be manifestation.

There may not be the same, like we see lost folks, we dealt with people fully. Like Mark chapter 5. Where it speaks through their mouth and does everything else. If there’s someone says they’re a believer and it goes that far, then we need to question where they’re at. Do you really know you’ve been – were you really born-again? And we need to find that out then. So just testing it, checking it, and the Lord will lead in that, to discern and figure that out.

But, deal with the demonic stuff; if they’re lost for sure, lead them to the Lord. If it’s any kind of, like, how can this be? Then just say, Lord, just pray it through and see what they got into. But I would, if they show the same similarities as a total lost person, in possession, we need to say, were you… do you really – were you really saved? Cause Romans 8, if you have not the Spirit of Christ, you’re not His.”

Interviewer:Does the Catholic rite of exorcism work? Or is it just… bogus?”

Russ Dizdar: “Um, I’m going to be honest when I say, if a real, real born again believer who has authority, uses some elements, in a very… a very obscured way, because there would be some mention of Jesus and authority, but ultimately I would say no. Because you can read to demons all day long, they just have more time to mess around.

You know, even like reading scripture. That’s a fine thing to do; Jesus never did it. The apostles, and those in the book of Acts, they never did it. They all did the same thing. So nothing with them, it sounds really religious. It sounds, you know, the things that are being read, it all sounds… powerful. But you don’t use a ritualistic formula, in order to get rid of demons who may have come through a ritual.

So Jesus said I give you authority. The way he did it, he showed how he did it. And how he did it all along, he trained the others to do it. When they understood that they did it the same exact way. Any believer just expressing that authority to expel. Jesus used the words {…} to ‘get out’.

And the reason I think that the Roman exorcist manual is… scary, wrong, in the bad sense, is that it gives demons time to do a lot of things. Just that reciting things – you can read a scripture to a demon to get it mad. I’ve seen people take a Bible and hit somebody on the head or do something and it makes them mad, or they take water, and they say it’s holy water and throw it on them, and the demons can play a game and act and display – you gotta remember, they are extraordinarily, supernaturally smart, wise, and tactical in all they do. We take a, we’re supposed to take authority, take charge, and engage them. And as soon as possible get it all out. So I thoroughly thumbs down on the Roman exorcist manual.

Interviewer: “Alright. Why do they always go after the children? In SRA and other occult practices? Over adults, for instance?”

Russ Dizdar: “Okay. Well see, first of all, it’s normal when you go to the Old Testament, Moloch and the Baals, they wanted the babies – the children, um, explained to me, by satanists, because it’s a higher level of blasphemy to God – against God. It’s a – and for some reason, the demons love bringing that kind of harm.

They – we look at a child, and automatically we’re going to protect them, save them, guard them, whatever it takes. They look at a child, they’d eat it alive, they destroy it, they torture it. Gotta remember – that’s their nature. And so, if they could show more of their nature to a defenseless child, they love that. That’s why some rituals are called ‘demon revels’. Or ‘satanic revels’. The younger the child, and here’s exactly what dark undergrounders have said to me in rituals, ‘The younger, the better. And we never kill them right away. We prolong the torture. Why? Because we have to raise the energies – the terror, the fear.’

And then little by little letting some blood out, because blood is the, in all that torment, it’s like, think in terms of rats and garbage. Smelly old garbage draws the rats. A ritual with all that torture, with all that pain, ultimately they prescribe by the demons in the first place, it draws them. And once they begin to open the blood gate, that’s what they attach to. In the context ritual. And when a child or human is killed, that’s when the demons are released into practitioners.

So, it’s all about their unsatiable hatred of God. Anything they can do to harm humanity, harm innocents, as an attack on God in a sense. There’s no question, in their nature, they don’t shed a tear. They don’t have any mercy. So they’ll harm… and they love that as part of the entrance to come into this side.”

Interviewer: “It really is unbelievable to think that there’s people that can do that without any – like what you were saying yesterday, how do you not smack them in the head with a 2 by 4?”

Russ Dizdar: “There’s times. Well there’s some people right now, it’s like, ‘Good news is we’re working with some people, law enforcement people that are going to go after them. And praise God if they get jail.’ I even told someone in Pennsylvania, if they go to jail, praise God, they go to jail. Because we realized this, pedophiles like that, satanist ritualistic pedophiles, they don’t stop, until they get stopped.

Interviewer: “Unbelievable.”

Russ Dizdar: “Do your stuff. Man, keep doing it. Keep getting it out there.”

Interviewer: “Do you want to plug your website?”

Russ Dizdar: “Well our website is shatterthedarkness.net. Shatterthedarkness.net. And on that website it leads to all the stuff we have. Hundreds and hundreds of hours of training. All of the audios, everything, all the courses are free, and you can get trained up, get educated, you know, learn things, and so, shatterthedarkness.net. Thank you.”

Interviewer: “And his name is Russ.”

Russ Dizdar: “And my name is Russ Dizdar.”

[as video is fading out] “Because there’s too many individual practitioners, the growth of, well, the new satanic things are kind of a fake. You know, the Satanic Temple. They’re a little fake, right? They’re more political. But no, the SRA and the undergrounders, they’re real.”

And to leave one last note, it was interesting that Russ made mention of a demon-possessed person reaching out to touch someone in order to try and attach the demonic entity to them. Because just yesterday I read an account of what may have been this very same attempt on a venerated Saint from Russia, Seraphim of Sarov.

Here is the tale of what allegedly happened in the 1800’s:

Story of Fr. Seraphim’s Military Visitor, as Told by Hieromonk Joasaph (Tolstosheyev) in 1849
How St. Seraphim’s spring revealed a man’s evil intentions to overthrow the government and start a revolution.
 

Once after dinner I went from the monastery to Fr. Seraphim in his near desert, which was located at the spring of the Theologian, by the lower road that lay along the banks of the Sarokva River and which led straight to the elder’s spring.

I saw Fr. Seraphim from yet a distance—he was standing by the log well at his spring on the western side, and leaning with his elbows on the well, holding his head in his hands, he was staring at the spring.

I had was yet several sazhens (an old Russian measurement equaling seven English feet) away from him when suddenly I saw that from the northern side, from the hill on which the elder’s hermitage stood, a middle-aged military man of average height, bare-headed, holding his cap in his left hand, came running over to the elder. I stopped to allow this military man to freely receive the elder’s blessing, and beheld an extraodinary event.

When the man came up to Fr. Seraphim and demanded his blessing, the elder did not change his position at all but continued to stare at the spring as he was doing before. When the military man had repeated his demand several times, the elder turned to him with the most severe expression and asked him sternly, “Of what confession are you?” As if shocked by the elder, the military man quietly replied, “I am not of the Russian confession.” Then the elder said to him, “Then go back where you came from.” But when that man again stretched forth his hands and asked for a blessing, the elder again with redoubled sternness, disregarding the man’s personage and rank, shouted, “I told you to go back where you came from.”

Stunned even more by the elder’s countenance and voice, the military man humbled himself even more and again stretched out his hand to ask the elder’s blessing. But the elder not only deprived him of the blessing as he did before, this time he shouted so loudly and mercilessly, as at the greatest enemy of the Church and apostate. I had never seen Fr. Seraphim in such fierce spirit, and I myself was confused and judged him, thinking that he was in the throes of some sort of temptation. It was frightening just to look at him then.

After this final and terrible refusal the man no longer dared to insist on a blessing and set off upon the same rode from which he had appeared. Only it was clear that he had as if lost his composure, or was completely shocked by the elder’s unmerciful attitude and threatening words addressed at him.

All the way back, until he disappeared from sight, I could see him holding his head in his hands and wiping away the sweat that was beading on his face.

After his departure, that very minute I approached the elder with fear, thinking that he would be just as merciless towards me, and I bowed to his feet. But the elder blessed me with his fatherly love and then taking me by the hand led me to his spring, telling me to look at it, saying, “Did you see that man who came to me?” I replied, “Of course I saw him, batiushka—I was standing the whole time nearby watching, and I mentally sinned against you by judging you for insulting that man and not blessing him no matter how many times he asked you.” Then the elder again directed his attention to his spring and said to me, “Look at the spring—it showed me just who that man is.” Surprised at the elder’s words and not understanding how a spring can show who an approaching man is, and supposing that the elder probably just wanted to hide in this the living grace that abode in him, I looked at the spring and saw it absolutely perturbed. It was like when someone intentionally stirs up a spring’s water in order to cleanse it of overgrown moss or too much residue on the bottom, so that all of that dirt would be carried away through the drainpipe.

Then Fr. Seraphim said, “Do you see, just as the spring is stirred up, that is how that man who came wants to stir up Russia.”

I was horrified at the elder’s wondrous grace-filled clairvoyance, as well as his zeal for God, which he disclosed against this secret enemy of the Church, the sovereign, and the fatherland. It soon became known that the Lord triumphantly revealed and destroyed all of the impious plans of these malefactors.

Do we really know what’s going on around us? Would we have the foresight and discernment in order to recognize that something dark and sinister has been systematically and strategically happening right before our eyes?

Or will people continue to ignore and scoff at this phenomena? Or, perhaps, would some of us just fall into a paranoid delusion? Wondering if everyone around us may be hosting these spirits?

I think the key thing is to not fall into fear and panic and chaos. There is a reason why we are to build ourselves up in faith and strength in the Lord. And for the sake of everyone, including the woman in the viral video who may or may not be demonically possessed, pray for them as well. If there’s a way to reach through to them through prayer, then perhaps that will help stop the very cycle they are perpetuating on others.

“13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” – Ephesians 6:13-18

God bless.
