Demons, Black figures, Evil Spirits – they have been a taboo topic for people, especially in our day and age. But the truth is, people of all cultures and in all walks of life have reported having experiences and frightening encounters with these things for many years. It is a topic that is not easily spoken about, as many of us fear that others will think we are crazy or will judge us. The truth is – we not only live in a natural world but the supernatural also exists. At times we are, for whatever reason God allows, given a glimpse into that. I personally have had a handful of these frightening encounters in my past. I would like to share them with you here – and I would like you to feel free to share yours as well in the comments section.
Right After Becoming A Christian – Strongest Demonic Attack Happened
Prior to being saved, I was involved in witchcraft with other kids from my school. Years earlier we played with Ouija Boards. There was one guy, Jared, in particular who was really into the witchcraft and spells. He seemed to know what he was doing.
So shortly after being saved, I went to sleep one night yet wasn’t fully asleep and I saw myself in my front yard. Standing directly in front of me was Jared and he was moving his hands around trying to do a spell on me. I turned my head to look to the right at the woods which I had walked many times. Suddenly I heard a noise as loud as a freight train and saw a black figure rise up so quickly from the woods (it was at least 200 feet from me) and bolted towards me with incredible speed and fierceness and jumped on top of me, pinning me down. I physically felt extreme pain and suffocation. I not only felt the presence of this large demon on top of me, but I felt surrounded by others. I felt extreme fear and extreme pain from the touch of the demon on top of me. It felt as though my skin was being ripped off. I was terrified and felt the presence of extremely evil beings.
Strangely, as I had just been born-again, I did not know that the immediate response should have been to call out to Jesus. Or even think the words as I could not speak at the time. Somehow I was released from this and was completely terrified. I had a newfound belief in the devil and in hell. I would never have understood the reality of it all if that hadn’t happened to me. Sometimes it is so tough for people to comprehend – but it is definitely real and we are living in a spiritual realm with battles going on all the time.
After I got out of this situation, I ran to my mother’s room. She was on the telephone and she stopped talking when she saw me. Later she said that the look on my face terrified her and she had never seen me like that before in my life – white as a ghost. I thought I could not sleep or go to school the next day or anything I felt so traumatized and terrified. Thankfully, God released it all from me and the fears left before morning.
Innocent 3 Year Old Son Stabbed By Demon – I Witnessed It
The second major attack happened with my son being involved. My son and I are Americans, and we were living in Thailand two years ago. The incident happened the night that my son prayed for the first time in his life. He was 3-years-old and said a prayer for my friend who was sick. He was very innocent and very sincere with his words. We went to sleep that night and we slept in the same bed, with the door to the bedroom locked.
Shortly after lying down, I heard pounding or knocking on the door to my room. The pounding was insistent and violent. My heart raced as though I’d have a heart attack. The door shook as the pounding increased in intensity. Seconds later the black demon bolted through the door (I don’t recall seeing it go through or open the door as it was so determined and so fast). It bolted into my room and jumped right on top of my sweet son who was sleeping and stabbed him. I then sat up and was covered in sweat and could hardly breathe. As I sat up I heard a loud wheezing noise which I made as I quickly turned to inspect my son and make sure he was ok.
I learned from my past and knew immediately what it was that had happened. I felt very little fear after it had happened (much more as it happened because it seemed real) and I immediately prayed boldly for the protection of God and the blood of Jesus to cover us and our home, especially my son.
Some Attacks Brought On By Involvement with Others – Be Careful
The intensity of the experiences or encounters has decreased over the years and my hope is that they stop (unless it is God’s will to continue to allow it). I understand that God allows many things to happen to teach us that we must trust Him and always call out to Him for help.
The last major incident that happened was one year ago. My friend James was visiting my son and me and we all went together on a road trip to visit our friend Michael. Michael is an author and was having a big production of a documentary he created, at Fox Theater in Arizona. So without realizing it, by spending time with James and opening my life up to him, I was opening myself up to things he was involved with (even without knowing it at the time). After going on this long road trip together, we arrived at our hotel. James went to his room and I went to mine with Josh. It was late and we were tired.
My son Josh had trouble falling asleep, but I didn’t know that because I shut my eyes and I was out right away. Immediately I was in a dream and I saw pictures of myself flashing like a slideshow. I looked very innocent in the pictures, like a young girl just enjoying life and running around. As I was looking at these innocent pictures of myself, I felt myself completely physically and spiritually attacked by the black demon that I have been attacked by numerous times in the past. It happened three times. When this happens, I feel completely helplessness, suffocated, inability to move or talk, and pain and fear. The fear and pain are nothing compared to the way I felt with the first time I was attacked when I was 14.
Since I was unable to talk, I thought “In Jesus Name, with the Blood of Jesus.” Instantly as I thought that, I felt my body at once become tingly with a sensation of something like electricity going through it, I felt released from the black thing and I woke up. As I awoke, I was saying or whispering or praying: “In Jesus Name,” over and over again. It wasn’t something I was consciously doing but as my unconscious and the conscious met, the thoughts turned to audible words and I turned my body to adjust how I was lying. As I turned, I opened my eyes and saw Josh – he was completely awake. He asked me if I was praying and I said yes and then he said that he couldn’t fall asleep yet. To me, it made me think that I may have only been in that dream-state for a matter of a few minutes.
The following morning, we awoke early and went to Michael’s home. After leaving the ranch, we headed home on our 9-hour journey. I was left with positive thoughts of the short road-trip and encounters with these talented people. I also was left pondering why I was attacked three times the night prior by that demon. On the way home, I think my pondering was cleared up.
I never knew too much about James and his take on religion or spirituality. He didn’t open up to me too much in that respect and I guess I never questioned him so much on his beliefs. I did this time, as we had 9 hours to kill on the road. To my surprise, he was into his spirituality much more than I knew. He talked about having some dreams and one in particular about a figure or spirit that spoke to him. He said he saw a figure who had no eyes, just eye sockets, and spoke to him saying, “I am Tamm-ay” over and over again. He said the figure had a white cape with black crosses on it. The figure’s body twisted around as it repeated the words over and over again. James woke up and told his father and brother. His brother told him to carve a doll out of what he saw, and James did just that (their family is Native American). The things James was telling me, from a Christian perspective, were very alarming. It immediately made me think that the reason I had the attack the night prior was because of what I was surrounding myself with. It says in the bible that you should be cautious as to who you let into your home. When it says “home,” I am sure it also means life. Be cautious about who you surround yourself with, what you let into your life and who you spend your time with. For example, if you around someone who practices voodoo, then you are also in the presence of the spirits that the person has invoked with the voodoo stuff. So, when James spoke of his involvement with this thing in his dream, then with seeing a powerful medicine woman, I immediately began praying fervently. Even while James spoke, in my mind I was praying with the blood of Jesus, for protection and for James. After that day, he flew back to his home state and I realized how important it is to be cautious about your involvement with others. He was heavily involved in his spirituality, which was so much into welcoming those demonic spirits.
