Dear sister Ruth,
        thanks for the encouragement in your email.
Keep reading all the literature over and over again, as also I do regularly.

It does minister to me as to all who read them.   The Lord is still working
on all of us, and when he is done, we shall come forth as pure gold.

Pray up, and sing His praises daily, and so shall His presence be
intensified
around you.

God bless you.

    Also, will you classify yourself as filled with the Holy Spirit and have someof the gifts? 
   However what you described is not  a "normal" experience 
although it is not too strange nor uncommon.  There can be several reasons 
for such sensing.  a) Could be human familiarity to subject/place - there are 
many similarities in this world. b) People could have been in dreams and seen 
places, or heard subjects- which later is confirmed in physical presence. c) There 
can be Holy Ghost gift of "word of knowledge" or, d) there can also be demonic 
influence of the psychic origin causing such sensing.

I have not heard this before, nor count it as anything.  If it is  true, the devilwas simply playing a trick on the
people involved.  It is more a fantasy, and a 
made-for-movie make-believes, like a woman who came on Good-Morning 
America or "Today" program claiming that when she toasted bread, an inscription 
appeared on her bread praising satan.   And the woman was a satanic worshipper. 
We all can tell that she made it up to propagate her religion. 

Follow the bible closely and ye shall not be deceived!

What you have prayed for the man has not been specific.   What the man needsis for the demon to be casted
out of him, which many times requires his agreement. 
It sounds like the man is possessed by the demon, and not merely oppressed. 
Oppression is when someone is constantly listening to evil spirits, while possession is when someone is
inhabited by the evil spirits.  Both need deliverance.   The oppressed need to hear the gospel and submit to
the word, then 
he can drive the devil away by himself.  The possessed need ministration by 
servants of God to be delivered.  In many cases, the possessed can still be 
unoccupied enough to hear the word, before the devil in him agitates against the 
word. 
     My admonition is that you pray that the man begin to be attentive to the gospel 
which you should attempt to communicate to him.  When he is attentive, the devil 
will be cast out of him either by your prayer/command or by another minister of 
the gospel. 

God bless. 
Bro. Julius
