Let’s go back a bit.. Pat’s true story starts much earlier than just his illness. Pat led a hard life before I met him. He was married but unfortunately for the wrong reasons. He drank, gambled, had a problem telling the truth. When I met him in 1997, we fell in love instantly . I saw the good in him that I am not sure he even knew was there. Not long after, Pat told me a secret that he had been carrying with him for 38 years. When he was seven years old, he had been confronted with a demon. Yes, they do exist people. If God exists, then so does Satan and if angels exist, so do demons. Well, at the tender age of 7 years old, this demon took control of Pat’s life. He tried to tell his parents but even back then, not many people believed in demons and if they did believe, they did not know how to deal with them. He was told to never speak of such again. Well, Pat did just that. For 38 years, he was promised anything he wanted if he just complied with Satan’s wishes. He joined an occult and did as he was told for all that time. He had a rewarding life from a materialistic standpoint but a very empty one from an emotional/spiritual one. The demon had told him his entire life that if he ever tried leaving the occult, they would kill him. He had no way out and felt trapped.
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.
I met Pat in 1997 and being from a solid Christian background, I began to share with him God’s Word. That God was greater than all the evil in the world combined. That with God, he could be delivered of the demons and the curses that had him captive. In October 1997, Pat gave his life to the Lord and was delivered from Satan’s hold. He spent his last 11 years on earth serving God.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
Pat chose to keep his past secret for all these eleven years. He didn’t know how his children would react and still had that fear that people would think he was crazy. The day after Christmas, 2007, his niece died a very mysterious death. There was an investigation but no one could make any sense why this beautiful girl in her 30’s was now gone. Pat decided that it was time to share his ENTIRE story in the hopes that it might help even just one other person learn how God can help them through whatever is afflicting them whether it be sickness or demonic powers. In May ’08, he told his family and made the decision to tell others so that it may help. That is what this website is for. To carry on Pat’s wishes and to help as many people as possible. With God, you can overcome anything Satan has thrown at you.
