Demon activity is increasing daily in the world; it has always been around striking fear and confusion in people. But there is one way in particular that I want to focus on today, and that’s the demonic possession of children’s dolls.
We’ve come to expect Hollywood to capitalize on peoples’ fears, and sure enough, according to a story in the LA Times, last summer’s horror flick, The Conjuring, was so successful…a sequel is now in the works.
Mutiny Pictures is now filming, Annabelle, based on a possessed doll that terrorized two girls years ago.
Annabelle was actually the inspiration for the hit movie, The Conjuring. As with most movies, artistic liberties were taken with the source material. The movie portrayed a completely different, albeit—creepier doll for shock effect. But none-the-less, the story of evil Annabelle was the inspiration.
Supposedly the possessed dolls have the ability to move on their own. Either change positions or even move from room to room. Turn their heads and even talk or leave notes.
There are many supposed haunted, or possessed, dolls from around the world that are well documented with many witnesses to their paranormal behavior. Dolls such as, Kristine, Okiku, Ledda; Simon, the ventriloquist’s dummy, and Christopher the haunted Teddy Bear, just to name a few. Whether or not the stories or eyewitness accounts are true, is uncertain.
But my belief is whether it’s a UFO sighting, Bigfoot sighting, possessed doll, etc., even if 95% of them can be proven to be a hoax, there’s always a small percentage that can’t be explained, and sometimes even have some solid photographic, sound or video evidence of supernatural activity. So even if the most are hoaxes or just a creepy campfire story, as a Christian, I have to be willing to accept that a few are legitimate, because demonic activity is real, and it’s increasing.
If the stories and history of these dolls are true, many mistakes are usually made by the owners, such as using a medium to speak to the dead spirit that supposedly possesses the doll. The Bible is very clear in Deuteronomy 18:10-1:
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: And because of these abominations the Lord they God doth drive them out from before thee.”
When you try to communicate with the dead, you get more than you bargained for, you get a familiar spirit.
Another Scripture I use quite often, simply because it’s so fitting to this subject matter and the times in which we live, is Ephesians 6:12:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
There are evil spirits in this world, let us never forget that. And I truly believe we are in the very last days, and they are becoming more active and because of the growth of evil in this world, are more easily accessing our dimension than ever before.
I can only guess as to why demons concentrate on something as seemingly innocent as a Raggedy Ann doll, but maybe that’s just it. They twist and pervert anything that is good and innocent, so why not possess an object that represents innocence and comfort to torment people, especially children.
And I have to wonder if in the past, occult practices or dabblings have occurred with some of the owners of these objects? Maybe some have consulted a Medium or have “played” with an Ouija board at some point in their lives? Ouija boards are well known to open portals for demonic spirits to enter a person’s life.
There are many other stories of demonic dolls and ventriloquist dummies from all over the world. Maybe demons know that perverted, dolls and clowns are some of the creepiest objects that could ever exist. At least for some of us.
