A True Tale of Demon Possession
Bill Scott recently published his book The Day Satan Called: A True Encounter with Demon Possession and Exorcism. It tells about his personal experiences with a demon during a phone call from a distraught young girl calling a Christian radio station for help. "The Day Satan Called has been described as “…a riveting account of demon possession.”
Scott, head of a production studio for a Christian radio station, says he never planned to write the book and understands why some may be skeptical about the story’s truthfulness. After all, he waited over 20 years to make it public. Outside of a few close friends and witnesses, no one else knew. He offers several reasons for why he waited so long to tell his story, which he swears is true. Naturally, he feared being labeled a lunatic. And with constant death threats against him, the girl and his family made by the demon and other strange unidentified callers, he thought it best to keep it under wraps.
The events began the week before Halloween in 1988 and for the following 18 months his life would be a living hell. One morning at the radio station Scott entered his office and found the news director, Rick, sitting at his desk and holding the telephone. He was white as a sheet and shaking. As he hung up the phone he turned and exclaimed he had just talked to a demon.
Of course, being the week of Halloween, Scott merely thought the whole thing was a prank. But, Rick was convinced it wasn’t a human voice. As they discussed what had happened, the phone rang again and Rick motioned for Bill to answer it and put the call on speaker. When he did, he found himself talking to a frightened 16 year old girl named Lacey asking for help. For the next few minutes Lacey told an unbelievable, shocking story. Lacey said she was being held captive by a witch’s coven and was to be sacrificed on Halloween.
Scott still believed the tale was nothing more than a pre-Halloween prank…until another voice broke in on the conversation which sent chills down his spine. Although he had never heard a demon speak, there was no doubt in his mind…the voice was definitely not human. The demon stated he was going to kill the girl and there was nothing anyone could do about it. He stated Lacey was Satan’s property and to stay away from her or suffer dire consequences. When Lacey began speaking again she was crying and begging for help. The demon frequently kept interrupting with obscenities and declaring nothing could be done to help her.
Although Scott was a devout Christian he had never had any experiences dealing with them. However, he did remember being taught how a Christian could bind Satan in Jesus’ Name. So, he screamed into the phone “In Jesus’ name you must go! I bind you in Jesus’ name.” The demon replied in a calm voice, but still using obscenities, he wasn’t going anywhere. Thinking maybe he hadn’t made the command with enough conviction he repeated it louder. He received the same response.
By this time a small crowd of coworkers had gathered in his office. But unfortunately, none of them knew how to deal with the situation either. The scene repeated itself throughout the day with Lacey calling in and the demon interrupting. During one of the calls Lacey explained that when she was younger the coven had sacrificed her baby.
She also said she was a “breeder,” meaning the witches used her to bear children for sacrifice and their satanic cannibalistic rituals. According to her, she had been born in the coven for that explicit purpose and had never been allowed out in public or attended school. Seeing no other alternative the Scott’s invited the girl to live with them. It was later found there were no records of her existence…no birth certificate, driver’s license or anything else.
After Lacey moved in with Bill and Janet, his home became the target of all sorts of terrifying events.Voices, death threats, falling and moving objects and strange visitors became daily occurrences. The Scott’s labored under the strain of trying to help the demon possessed girl. And even after Lacey had left their home the demonic attacks continued.
Reviews of the book for the most part say it is an extremely horrifying account. The only objection seems to be the books’ cover which has satanic symbols. However, since at the time of this writing the book is still a relatively new release and the conclusion has yet to be published. But the ending is said to have a surprise twist. Unfortunately, to find out how it ends one must know someone who has read it or buy it.
