The underpants gnomes. The little guys that, that come into your room late, late at night and steal your underpants. They come out at 3:30 in the morning. Most people aren't up then, but I am. I can't sleep. Ever.
I am thy father's spirit,
Doom'd for a certain term to walk the night,
And for the day confined to fast in fires,
Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature
Are burnt and purged away. But that I am forbid
To tell the secrets of my prison-house,
I could a tale unfold whose lightest word
Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres,
Thy knotted and combined locks to part
And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porpentine:
But this eternal blazon must not be
To ears of flesh and blood. List, list, O, list!
Originally posted by worldwatcher As for specifically 3am, I'd have to do some research, but as for the movies I'm not sure if it is coincidental or based on facts from the original stories?

Seriously though.... I think the main reason is probably because at 3 am, everyone that is awake probably hasn't slept since the morning before and is fatigued, and much more easily open to be impressed upon; and to have their eyes play tricks on them.

If she was spoken to by the virgin Mary, given the opportunity to "suffer" so that others would know the devil is real, and if she is now being considered for sainthood, how is it that she was ever possessed by the evil beings? (This was the situation in the movie, I don't know if it was part of the "real" story of Anneliese Michel or not.)
Can those who have accepted that Christ is Savior of mankind, and that He, through the holy Spirit, can indwell believers be possessed by demonic forces?
Just some questions I'd like to hear responses on
