The power of God’s Word

How a Bible kept a man of witchcraft from entering a home.


Saraswathy is a teenage girl attending the tailoring program at Quiet Corner. Coming from a Hindu background, she was only introduced to Jesus recently. Her love for Jesus is so genuine that she is often seen reading the Bible given to her by the sewing class instructor.

Saraswathy had health-related problems and would often faint; her parents thought that she was possessed by evil spirits.

One day, a witchcraft man was brought to their house to cast the demons out of her. Her mother requested for him to enter, but as he reached the entrance, he could not step forward and enter through the doorway. Again, her mother requested him to come in, but he replied that he could not enter because there was a greater power confronting him. Her mother told him that there was no one else,  besides Saraswathy reading a book, there and again requested for the man to enter. He replied that he could only enter if Saraswathy threw the book away. The book was the Bible, and Saraswathy would not give up the Bible and was determined to continue reading it. The witchcraft man had to retreat.

The Bible represents the presence and power of the true and Living God.  So many Christians take the word of God, the Bible, for granted. However, Saraswathy’s story demonstrates the power of the Bible and encourages us, too, to keep reading the Word of God.
