The Demon On His Shoulder! by Elaine Davenport (Saturday, February 23, 2008)

It was about three months ago and I was up happily blogging when the news caught my attention. It was a Fox News broadcast and this is what they reported. There was a man (Joe Martinez) and his wife who took a picture at a party and on his shoulder was a picture of a small demon. I saw it. It was a shock in a way…but in a way it really wasn’t. The man explained that he had been a consistent alcoholic at the time that the picture was taken, but that now he and his wife were born again. We’ve decided not to give a picture of what it looked like because the devil gets no viewing on this site.


The News media doesn’t believe in demons except in a movie. They pretty much had decided (in my opinion) to disprove the man’s claims and show it on television. So, they put it on to explain to the viewers about all of the experts that they had brought in to disprove the demon in the picture. They stated that the experts had said that the pictures had not been touched up and that it wasn’t computer graphics, It was a little tiny head that looked like a small raccoon with red eyes that was sitting on his shoulder.

Some friends and myself had a discussion about alcohol and how many years ago, they called it spirits. Those “spirits” seem to make the average person exemplify some nasty characteristic sometimes. Things like: anger, hard truths,, insults, violence, arguments; just a bunch of uncool manifestations and a “good feeling” until the next morning. The man who submitted the picture couldn’t see the demon either; but it showed up in the picture.


Mainly because you can’t see what’s going on. The bible warns you that there’s so much that you can’t see.

Ephesians 6:10-18 (King James Version)

10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

In Line Number 12…it says we’re not wrestling against flesh and blood. So, it’s not people that we’re looking for because whatewver it is or looks like we can’t see it, but it doesn’t mean that the enemy isn’t there. Just know this: the traps that show up in our lives…didn’t just happen. Think about it.



Just to let you all know I was there. This was at a reception hall that did not allow animals in the facility. At the time of the picture they did not own the dog that was viewed in the newscast. The dog they currently have is not even a year old. If this thing over his shoulder is evil then so be it. Everyone has his or her own opinion. What we all don’t understand is why we just recognized it within this past year. We are currently looking for the negatives of the pictures taken that night. The news came to him; they did not go to the news. He did not want this exploited into something like seeing Jesus on French toast. He wants to help the young kids not to fall into drug life like he did. Yes he has struggled with his habit and no we did not support it. We support him on staying clean. Just think to yourselves, if you had a close family member would you really kick them to the curb? Or would you try and help them? This isn’t any different than your recovering alcoholic uncle that falls off the wagon every 10yrs or so. You love them and get them back on the right track. I will never understand on why anyone has to rely on any type of drug, legal or illegal to help them cope with the realities of life. Yes I have told him that. He said he was never hurting anyone. I told him he was, his wife, kids and his grandchildren, the loved ones that did not judge him for his faults.

For the ones that are trashing him for being honest with himself, you might be the ones that have your own evil sitting on your shoulder waiting to be seen.

They are strong faithful Christians and we feel this is Gods way of showing him years later that the evil/temptation is still lurking over his shoulder or anyone’s shoulder at this matter. This is your opinion to believe if this photo is real or not. This has nothing to do with getting their 15 minutes of fame. This is to show that everyone they might have their own evil lurking within them. This does effective everyone around them even though they do not believe it during fixation. (Drugs, money, alcohol, sex etc.)
