I met an Indian gentleman who was over here to study law & languages. He went over to Paris, got in with Madame Blavatsky's set, became a theosophist, then a Spiritist & was much used as a medium.
He then believed in Christ and was saved. Then it was that the evil spirits distressed him. For months he was awakened by them night after night, rarely getting half an hour's consecutive sleep. Tangible hands touched him & terrible manifestations of their presence afflicted him.
He prayed to God, but got no relief. At last a voice appeared to say to him, "Mention the blood." He then spoke to them, commanding them by the precious blood of Jesus Christ to leave him. Every time he mentioned the blood they left him & by that means he obtained complete deliverance.

Luke 11:24-26 (GNT): “When an evil spirit goes out of a person, it travels over dry country looking for a place to rest. If it can't find one, it says to itself, ‘I will go back to my house.’ So it goes back and finds the house clean and all fixed up. Then it goes out and brings seven other spirits even worse than itself, and they come and live there. So when it is all over, that person is in worse shape than at the beginning.”
“The most solemn truth in the gospel is that the only thing Christ left down here is His blood.” - D.L. Moody.
