Zimbabwe East Africa – The husband of a nearly lost his life when he was severely assaulted by a mental patient who had visited the couple’s home for an exorcism ceremony.
Cephas Senga suffered a broken arm and several deep cuts in the head after he was clobbered by Forgive Nongwa with a burning log when ‘evil spirits’ believed to be tormenting Nongwa manifested during the exorcism.
Nongwa pleaded guilty to attempted murder charges when he appeared before magistrate Judith Zuyu. He was, however, acquitted after a medical report done by a doctor at Chikurubi maximum prison indicated that Nongwa was a mentally challenged person. Source
Now, why did the man get the Hell beat out of him?
Acts 19:11-17 “Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, (just like these who are NOT Born Again) took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. (I doubt they even used Jesus’ name but some other name)14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.”
Contrary to their belief, a “traditional healer” is a Witch doctor. An Exorcism can only be carried out by a Born Again person and only in the Name of Jesus, the name above every name that makes demons tremble!
Philippians 2:10 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”
James 2:1 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”
