Exorcist Diary #58: No Deals with Demons

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

In the midst of an exorcism, the "out front" demon said, "I will make a deal with you." I responded, "You want to make a deal? I'll make a deal with you. Here's the deal: you leave." No response. In about an hour or so later, that demon with his underlings left. He knew he was on the ropes and was trying to cut a deal.

There is only one group worse to make a deal with than terrorists and that's demons. They manipulate and they lie. Even if Satan promises you something, he may not deliver and will claim your soul in the process.

Over the years, we have exorcized a number of people who have made deals with Satan in one form or another. Some have made explicit pacts in Satanic rituals. Others have done so unwittingly through occult practices. Asking a witch or shaman to grant you a favor such as healing or wealth or having another fall in love with you is tantamount to making a deal with Satan. Such a deal will never end well.

However, there is a cure. The cross of Jesus Christ can cancel out any pact with Satan, regardless of what Satan or anyone tells you. The person must be truly repentant and ask God for forgiveness and help. Once the sin is confessed and absolved, the pact is annulled and the person is returned to God's grace.

However, this does not mean any oppressing or possessing demons will leave easily. It may involve a rather long battle. The person is already "saved," but casting out any attaching demons will typically not be quick. The takeaway: making deals with demons is really, really bad idea.
