Pigs, Demons, and Water Portals

Send to Kindle

We are seeing more spirit activity these days and some are dark while others appear “helpful.” I say that in the sense that some of “them” are not causing the person to eat handfuls of spiders or pose in back breaking contortions; just take a look at modern day magicians. The spirit world appears to be another Universe unto itself filled with many different spirits. One thing is for sure they all bow to the authority of the Son of the Father. Jesus has complete power over these spirits and can banish them with a word or a prayer.  

I was reading one of my antique books titled, “Chaldean Magic: Its Origin and Development” by Francois Lenormant (1837 – 1833) and it was explaining the spirit world . . . it too said all of the spirits must bow to the Son of Man! To read such an old book that researched Chaldean Magic is such a confirmation of the power Christ yields in the material and spiritual world.  It leads me to contemplate what are the transitory elements between the worlds. How are the barriers breached so these spirits can manifest in the physical realm? 

There is a scripture many theologians and biblical scholars over the years analyzed and deconstructed regarding the demon extraction by Jesus. This was a case of a double-demon order for Christ because two men emerged from the tombs and he knew they were possessed just by looking at them. I wonder if Christ was looking at their pupils for slits in addition to their body convulsions.  Whatever the case Christ knew these men needed an act of affordable spontaneous health care in order to save them from being demonic playgrounds.

Let’s take a look at the ancient Holy Spirit inspired testimony by Matthew:

Matthew 8:28-34

28 When He arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met Him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. 29 “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?”

30 Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. 31 The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.”

32 He said to them, “Go!” So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. 33 Those tending the pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all this, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw Him, they pleaded with Him to leave their region.

Now there are some discrepancies between the books of Luke and Mark in relationship to the account in Matthew but I do not want to focus on this.  The main theme is: possession, extraction, pigs, suicide, water, and healing. I have taken note the majority of the scholars and theologians have become fascinated with the pigs in the story. Most of them conclude because pigs are an unclean animal the demons “chose” them to possess.

Colossians 2:16-17

Therefore let no man judge you in eating and drinking or in respect of a festival or of an observance of the new moon or of a sabbath; for those things are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ

We also have another scripture addressing what goes into the mouth here:

Matthew 15:11

“What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”

So why the obsession with the pigs? They were just there by happenstance. I submit to you the pigs were a casualty of opportunity from the demonic perspective. The demons “begged” to be “placed” into the herd of pigs. They were not chosen because they are unclean but because of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. In essence, the demons looked at the pigs as taxis. They were not interested in a symbiotic relationship with the pigs but as a vehicle to the water. The demons wasted no time either; they ran directly into the river and killed the pigs.

Deities: Obviously there are tons of gods and goddesses of the seas and oceans. I searched for god/esses that could be used primarily for household water– wells, fountains — or god/esses of laundry. Here are a few that I found: (Source)

  • The Crinaeae: Greek/Roman; a type of nymph associated with fountains
  • Naiads or Naiades: Greek; a type of nymph who presided over fountains and wells (also springs, streams, and brooks)
  • Mokosz (MOH-kosh): Slavic Goddess, who when happy with her offerings of vegetables would help women with their laundry.
  • Saule (sew-lay): Baltic goddess of sun and sea who is also a hearth goddess who oversees all spheres of domestic work, including laundering
  • Camenae: Roman; A nymph of wells and spring water
  • Laga: Norse goddess of springs and wells
  • Nethus: Roman; God of wells and fresh water
  • Fontus: Roman, God of fountains

This is another important fact that pigs were killed by the demons. The pigs did not commit suicide because pigs can swim. This is not commonly know but pigs swim in deep water! What the theologians and biblical scholars have missed is the fact the demons needed the pigs to be in the water when they died.

This story gives us insight into the applications used in the realm of spirit. Water must be one of the transitory element between the physical and the spiritual realms. These demons pleaded with Christ not to just cast them out of the man. This would mean they would be disembodied spirits. They need a host to survive in the physical realm. These demons demonstrated fear of being cast out and this fear was eliminated when Jesus agreed to cast them into the pigs.

Man is made up of over 65% of water. It is used by our cells and our brains float in it; it is the essence of our blood. Could water be the common element that connects us all together as one? Is it the ultimate conductor and thread of our multidimensional being?

– Michael Erevna

It is also interesting to note the demons spread between the entire herd. They did not possess just one pig as they did the man (or men); depending on the version of events. This suggest there are more spiritual “rooms” in the soul than that of an animal. If this was not the case the demons could have possessed one pig and kill the one pig. There was a need to possess the herd. I submit to you, if all the demons would have possessed the one pig they knew they would kill the pig. 

If the demons killed the pig on land they would be in the same proverbial boat as if Jesus just cast them out. The demons had an exit strategy because they realized it was not the appointed time for the final assault by Christ. It was also an act of mercy from Christ because it was another example of love your enemy. Christ could have denied the demonic request with impunity yet he demonstrated mercy. I am sure the herd of pigs would not agree with this analysis.

With all this being said let’s attempt to bring clarity to the pigs being killed in the water. First, the pigs were denied their natural instinct to swim. The demons made sure the pigs drowned. Once the pigs were dead the human observation had ceased. What follows were spiritual mechanics the demons were well acquainted. As these demons left their host the water allowed them to travel.

The water represented the escape route back to the realm of spirit . . . safely. Hollywood uses the water portal in many of their movies, such as: Stargate, The Box, and Constantine, etc. Water is the bridge between the worlds and the occult world is well aware of this. Now we know the demons did not chose the pigs because they are unclean animals. They were nothing more that taxis. The sad thing about that day is a lot of bacon died.

In closing we have learned even the demonic kingdom know there is an expiration date to their existence. Christ was not only concerned with the well being of man but also practiced mercy on malicious spirits. Demons fear being released into the physical atmosphere because they become disembodied spirits with no control. Water appears to be a safe zone to these spirits because it allows them an escape route to the other world. We need to change are thinking from material to spiritual by doing so we are better able to understand our enemy.

    The article was good except for the bacon comment. Pigs are unclean. The doctrines of men lie but Scripture never does. Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

    • Thank you Amy. I can not lie bacon is a weakness of mine! I will always tell the truth but you are right no one can argue with scripture. I have actually moved on to just turkey bacon but I probably ate a herd of pigs before I quit. I added the bacon bit only for levity.

        Abit confused here Michael, are you contradicting your comments in the article based on what you’re saying in this comment. I’m only asking not to start any controversy but to do what is right. Should we eat pigs? Yes or no please

    1 Corinthians 12:13  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to DRINK of one Spirit.

    Michael – there’s that reference again whereas we drink in the spirit of God & Living Water. I’m not sure how this may all be connected but I do believe that you are on an interesting trail. Very interesting article & you’re right on about the pigs. For example, anyone that has been demonized to the point of committing suicide doesn’t harm the demon it just kills the one demonized which is satans master plan using his army (demons) to do it.

  • Dominic McCarthy

    The pigs were chosen for a reason. They are filthy. Jesus would have
    denied entry to a clean animal. How about the relationship between man
    and pig? Similar vessels no?
    I want to post this article and have in mind the Book of Enoch. There’s a reason Pigs aren’t supposed to be ingested. http://

    Genesis 1:2-10…..water, water everywhere 🙂

  • MrSteven4one .

    Good article but one thing has left me confused. Why would Jesus show mercy to demonic spirits?

    • Thanks Mr. Steve4one – That is the question but He did! He taught us to love our enemies. Did He not demonstrate this as well with this act? He could have just cast them out…

    • Bren4Life

      IMHO… Remember, evil feeds on anger, self-righteousness, hate, greed, lust, worry, pride, deceitfulness, shame, meanness… etc.

      Logically, Jesus better than most would know better than to act in any way that may empower these entities further…

      But I believe the biggest reason really boils down to the fact that He truly lived what He taught… LOVE ONE ANOTHER ! (He said this to ALL mankind – there were no qualifying factors) He truly cares about each and every SOUL, enough to die for ONE! And with no guarantee that that one would even accept Him, love Him…

      To me the portrait of Christ depicted in the NT shows not a man who was weak or naive, or like the hippies in the SF airport in the 60’s…”Peace, Love…”, He didn’t need to act outraged or be personally offended by the sins He saw committed daily — Instead, He was grievous, saddened maybe – and tried even more to teach of God’s Love… Because in the end — That IS ALL that can dispel the darkness… The Light of His Love!!

    Good article Michael. I found a couple of things confusing though. You said, “The water represented an escape route back to the spirit realm … safely.” Aren’t the demons already in the spiritual realm, why would they need to switch mediums to escape (from air to water)? Also, this seems to contradict Matthew 12:43. Another thing, why did Jesus allow the demons to enter a herd of pigs, knowing they would drown the pigs and they were other people’s property? I think there’s something more to the story. Thoughts?

    • Hi Chris,

      The spirit realm is unique to the physical realm. Think about when people have a near-death-experience or the third heaven. All different places which required a type of travel to get there between worlds.

      If the demons were in the air they would still be in the physical realm. The water is in the physical realm as well but it is a transitory element for travel.

      I have the same question why Jesus would put the demons into another person’s property. Did he know they would kills the pigs? I think this is what the discussion should also revolve around; not just pigs are unclean.

      In my opinion, the water was very key to understanding another aspect of the demonic kingdom. We can use this!

      Thanks for sharing and I am happy you appreciated the post.

      Peace be with you,

        Perry Stone addressed why the pigs were chosen (and Jesus’ knowing that they would consequently die) in one of his shows. He stated that the pigs that were raised in that area were for altar sacrifices to Zeus. Hence, that the pigs died was a statement by God regarding what His attitude was concerning the heathen sacrifices to idols and false gods.

    Brother I love your hard work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Here is the answer. They are our genetic twins. Think cloning. They are man turned into beasts. The Giants love our flesh but they tweaked us so they could enjoy bacon much more faster and easier.

    • Hi Daniel,

      I have been taking a much needed break from the site and I am happy to see your comment. To know my body of work is having such an impact on people like you is so rewarding!

      I must give all the credit to the Creator because I am nothing more than a vessel He is using at his whim! I am grateful He is using me to effect change in the physical realm to the spiritual realm.

      With Him all things are possible. I hope this fog we are in leaves and we all rise together!

      Peace be with you,

    From my personal testimony, I can tell you that water’s significance in the physical plane is mirrored in it’s spiritual significance.

    I suffer from night terrors because of my sexual sin. If I am sleeping on my bed, and I do not have my guard up, I will be attacked my demons. However, when I laid in my bath tub instead, I seemed to be immune to these spiritual attacks. After reading this article, I now believe I was protected because I was immersed in water. It seems the water created an outlet for the spirits to flee.

    Whenever we sin, we are creating an imbalance in our bodies in which hostile entities are drawn to us like a magnet. We can only reverse this process if we are close with God, and his Holy Spirit fills us with light (positive energy). Also, we can now see that baptism is very important because of water’s natural and spiritual capabilities of purification.

    A side note: there are ways to protect yourself from sleep paralysis. These include bending one of your legs. The more you bend, the better the protection. Why is this? I believe this happens because our bodies are the same as an antenna or tuning fork. We are able to receive energy waves including electromagnetic, etheric, etc. Our legs act as the antennas, so crossing them will close off the connection. This is only a physical solution though. I think it’s much more important to live a holy life and to ask God for forgiveness.

    There are a number of points about this episode I too would like to get clarification:
    In more than one occult reference, Satan is supposed to have a pig like face (or one of his minions, the name of whom I don’t remember). This source is from a fictional story, but what is the source of the author’s imagination?
    Pigs are also found as one of the face(s) of the deities in India. (cf. Varaha avatar of Vishnu, the middle of the Hindu trinity, of Hanuman, when he is five faced). Here the anthroposophic pig-headed god saves the earth from destruction.
    There is a mention in one of Umberto Eco’s book (title missed in my memory), where piglets manifest in some conjuring.
    Ofcourse consumption of pigs is forbidden in the old testament.
    In our Eastern countries, pigs (and to some extent dogs too) have the disgusting habit of coprophagy (eating faeces/shit) of humans, especially.
    Just some observations, that is all.

    Ok Here The Truth , I read everyone Comments about the Pigs , and I’ve seen no spiritual truth in it. When the Demons ask Yahshua can they go into the Unclean Animals he allow them too. But Yahshua has Control over Nature Too and Probably allow the pigs to Jump in the Water. The Water represent The Holy Spirit flowing through Believer Now if it was up to the Demons they would of stayed in the pigs to they were allowed to possess another humans Now Think here why would the demons want to jump in water to become disembodied again and roam around to only get tired Spirits get tired that why they hate water and they travel in dry places. Dry places are unpleasantness in our lives our troubles are dry places demons hate water and can’t swim in it cause it represents the holy Spirit symbolicly. Matt 12:43 luke, 11:24 devils travel in dry places it were they find there rest…

      Note: the spirits find NO rest ! –> Demons hate dry places !

      The article present an insightful analysis of a phenomena that most people / pastors overlook. It also appears to be a scripturally accurate analysis.

  • Bull Spit

    WOW!!! So much stupidity in this world! Its a pig!!!! Its food! And to the dipshit who put this article up, if they all bow to Mr.Jesus then why does an exorcism invole hours, and in some cases days of pleading to jesus before he helps. Seems to be a dick move if he can ‘banish them with a prayer’! You people think God is behind you? He’s not. Once again he gave us free will!!! Why would he do that knowing full well what we could, and would use it for. He knows everything!!! Past, present, and future!

      1Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
      2For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
      3Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
      4Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
      5One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
      6He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
      7For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
      8For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
      9For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
      10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
      11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

      Key Note: “…every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.” Be careful what you say and what you believe. My prayer is that you learn, research, compare King Jesus to what else you find out there. Just know, despite what you have said, he loves you and wants you to come to truth.

      PS, the passage also addresses the issue of “what to eat” as well.
