Movie “Rosemary’s Baby.”

 

In 1968, Paramount Pictures released what was to become a classic horror film: Rosemary’s Baby. Mia Farrow played a pregnant woman who feared that her actor husband had made a deal with the devil. In exchange for movie stardom, her child would be a devil baby destined for sacrifice. She undergoes a visionary experience in which, the night she conceives her child, she is raped by a demon in front of her husband. Rosemary is later told that, during labor, her baby died. She eventually learns the baby is alive and is the spawn of Satan. The movie was written and directed by Roman Polanski, whose own wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered by the Charles Manson family when she was eight-and-a-half months pregnant – the year after Rosemary’s Baby was released.

 

The phenomenon of some sort of demonic conjugation, usually known as incubus/succubus or “spiritual wife/husband,” is either dramatically increasing or participants are more willing to speak of it. In my seminars and Personal Encounter sessions, the topic comes up more and more; therefore, it’s important to know what it is and how to address the topic in a counseling and inner healing ministry context. Understandably, it’s a touchy topic, that some night think is more suited for private discussion, not a public forum. My reason for bringing this subject into the open is to let those who suffer know that they are not alone, and that there is hope and help. Tomorrow we’ll discuss more about the alarming rise in incidents of this kind of demonic attack and look for ways that the victims can fight back.


An encouraging word:  DISCOURAGEMENTDiscouragement is a tough place to be. When a series of circumstances seems to conspire to thwart all your hard work and good intentions, it’s easy to fall into despair. Add fatigue as a factor, and the depression can be overwhelming. We’ve all been there to a greater or lesser degree. It’s then that faith has to kick in —  the evidence of what we do not see. Faith is simply the internal, confident assurance that what we cannot see will be, because we know in our heart that the love of God will lead us to that place. If you are discouraged, look again at Hebrews 11:1 and know that, in spite of your discouragement, what you hope for is waiting for you even though you can’t see it right now.
