LEGACY – Demonic Possession

Demonic possession

For most of us demonic possession conjures up images of ghosts, demonic characters we have seen in movies or some firsthand eerie experiences we may have encountered. However, demonic possession can be quite complex which is way beyond what meets our gross eyes. Demonic possession is when a negative entity possess and controls the mind and intellect of a person by merging with the person’s consciousness. Thus, the person’s actions and behavior are partially or completely controlled by the demonic entity. Demonic possession may not always be dramatic but can also be very subtle yet strong. SSRF has done extensive research to demystify this whole dimension by studying and researching thousands of demonic possessions through our members who have advanced sixth sense. We have found that 30% of the world’s population is possessed and 50% are affected. Demonic energies work through people and take advantage of their personality defects to create conflict and instability in the world at the level of the individual, family, society and nation. SSRF recommends spiritual practice as per the basic principles helps to protect oneself from being affected or possessed by demonic entities and ghosts. People not doing spiritual practice are unable to receive required protection from God. Due to this ghosts can create havoc in these people’s life at a physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual level.
