They were both Christians but had quit going to church and reading their Bibles. They'd grown cold toward God and anything to do with Christian gatherings of any sort.
Their interaction soon ceased and to her it seemed they were engaged in a cold war. Two strangers living together under the same roof, but millions of miles away in spirit. Even so they stayed together as if only by a thin thread of loyalty.
Her emptiness and sense of unfullfilment pushed her into seeking something to satisfy her emotional needs. That's when she turned to the occult. Even though she knew it was wrong and against what the Bible taught, somehow she began to feel empowered after delving into book after book on everything to do with the dark arts. In fact, Chris admits she became a witch.
This worried her husband and he confronted her about it. She laughed at his concerns and continued further in her dabbling into the occult. At the same time her husband, knowing this was anti-Christian and fearing for her sanity, turned back to God and repented of his cold heart. Then he began to earnestly pray for his wife.
Chris was asked by a local para-normal group to help them in casting out a presence ina haunted house. She was excited at this and took up the challenge. As she and a couple of others walked through the house she suddenly remembered how Jesus cast out demons. So she cried in a loud voice..."You're not wanted here. I command you in Jesus's Name to go where He would have you go!'
It seemed as if nothing had happened, but they had recorded the session and she took the recording home with her. Her husband who happened to be a radio technician over heard the replay and froze as he heard the results. An awful piercing scream was heard right after her command. Chris was shocked. "We never heard that,' she said. He wasn't satisfied that someone hadn't doctored the tape even though she told him she'd brought it straight home. He played it on a digital machine where sounds show up in digital markings and nothing was visual at the point where they heard the unearthly scream.
Only then did Christine realize Jesus's power was greater than the demons and it hadn't been her power, but the power of God who had acted in casting out the evil spirit. At that, Chris renounced everything to do with the occult and repented before the Lord.
Yes, her husband's prayers were answered, and she was reunited with him in body, soul, and spirit from that day on. Now she has a ministry warning others to stay away from such evil things.
