This article helped me immensely when I was dealing with my near possession before I turned back to YAHSHUA/JESUS the right way. The author gave me permission to print this here as the original link to the article is not valid anymore. I experienced some of what happened to Courtney. Having the courage to publish frightening, embarrassing, even controversial information that is true in order to help others is more important than one might realize. If you are the one going through difficult things and need to find out if others have experienced what you are going through, it can be a huge help and relief and could even save a life and/or someone’s sanity! Blessings to you both Courtney and Tom and to anyone else out there who does not hide their light as YAHSHUA/JESUS asked us to do! Shalom!
My Many Demon Experiences
By: Cortney Lewis Stiles
I was born into a family divided. Church was considered correct mostly on my mom’s side of the family, The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints. In 1985 the church broke up. My dad along with several members started a new Church called, The Church of Jesus Christ – the Lamb Of God. The basis of the Church was supposed to have been about Jesus Christ and what the Bible, the inspired version – which was the Book Of Mormon and its Doctrines and Covenants, taught. This was the one where Joseph Smith was told by God to add into it what man had taken out, I was told. Instead it seemed that most of the attention was on how we were different from the Mormons and also how we were the only Church on earth that had the fullness of the Gospel. There is more but this is the beginning.
On January 18, 2011, I went to a healing room center near where I live and for two days was prayed over for generational curses, every other issue I could think of, and what the Lord revealed I should pray about. I also prayed for generational blessings going back a thousand years, to come upon me and my family immediately. “Punishing the children of the sin of their fathers to the third and fourth generation of those that hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those that love me and keep my commandments”, Exodus chapter 20 verses 5-6.
I had Freemasonry in my bloodline and the church I was brought up in was occult but I didn’t know this until after I went to the healing center. I prayed for these curses to be lifted off of me and after the door closed, I felt free. The story that you are about to read is the result of satan’s legal permission to attack me even though I was baptized and followed and loved God. I couldn’t be fully released until the spiritual door, open from my ancestors’ sins, was shut and the hold broken. Now when I get attacked by demonic forces, it is due to a door that was opened from sin I committed. The Lord makes me aware of what I did wrong so that I know what I did, then I repent of it and the demons leave immediately. Finding this knowledge at the healing room made my whole life finally make sense as to why strange and disturbing spiritual things happened to me. Thank you Jesus Christ for your amazing love and never giving up on me! I love you!

I was taught about God and Jesus Christ mostly from my dad who is a minister of The Church Of Jesus Christ – The Lamb Of God. The name has changed and it is now called The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ. I also learned about God from my paternal grandma. I have always remembered having a relationship with God. There has not been a time I didn’t know Him. I have always had a desire to serve Him and I would pray to Him a lot as well. I would go to my dad’s church when it was his turn to have us for the weekend. Since my parents divorced when I was three, I would see my dad every other weekend usually. When it was not my dad’s turn to take us to his church, I would go to my mom’s church instead. I was baptized when I was 12 in my dad’s church.
From as early as I can remember, a lot of spiritual things would happen to me that I did not know how to deal with. Since I didn’t know what exactly was happening, it was hard to explain it. When I did try and explain it, I would forget in mid sentence what I was saying. So needless to say, I was extremely frustrated. Since I now understand more about demonic attacks, I know exactly what it was that had been happening when I was younger. On most days I would hear different voices, not out loud, but similar to when you are reading quietly to yourself in your head. I would hear voices like that talk to me or crowd my brain with much confusion, trying to manipulate any decision I was about to make.
I would have these same nightmares for years, me being in my house or some other house and then I would go outside because I would hear someone calling my name. I would feel this seducing feeling like I had to do whatever the voice was telling me to do. When I went outside, I felt so much fear and dread I would try to hide. I would either try to run back into my house or get under something like a table. I would hear something roaring like a dinosaur and the ground would shake when it walked. Whenever the monster would get close to me, I would always wake up feeling terrified like something was in the room staring at me. I would usually see dark shadows, details of scary faces, and sharp teeth in the darkened room and would have an overwhelming feeling of being watched. I would see things in my minds eye. To this day, I see things in the dark.
I have always loved God and would pray to Him and try to follow Him, so I didn’t understand what was happening to me. I would feel seducing feelings, like I needed to do things. It was almost as if I had to do it. This was how I made a lot of the mistakes that I did most of my life. I was always getting into trouble thinking the seducing smells and feelings I would get were right.
It was the year of 2004. I had moved back with my dad so that I could save some money and get back on my feet. I was at a point in my life where I was really lost spiritually. I was coming to an end of a very destructive path due to the emotional and traumatic issues I had growing up. I had done some really sinful things and wanted to change my ways. I started to read my Bible again. It had been a long time since I last read it. I sincerely asked God why I was doing things that felt right but then later turned out to be wrong. This was a constant companion in my life, having to deal with being wrong. I asked God to please open my eyes spiritually so that I could know the truth. I told Him I didn’t want to be deceived anymore so please give me the spirit of discernment. That night when I went to bed, I got visited by demons in my dreams. This happened usually every other night and sometimes every night, for about a year.
While dreaming, I knew I was really asleep but I could not wake myself up. In the dream, I would be lying in my bed and wouldn’t be able to move or talk. I could see that the room was exactly the same, but it seemed “static like”. That was the only thing that was different along with the demons that were in the room, sometimes three or four at a time. One time there was one was sitting on me with its back turned to me and I could see his spine poking out. He looked extremely malnourished, his body was really small, and his skin was a sallow grey color. He looked to be about 3 feet tall and a lot like that creature from The Lord of the Rings, the one who showed Frodo around – “Smeagol” who later became “Gollum”. They had his body wearing a cloth-like diaper around his groin area. The demons I’ve seen look like this. I’ve read about and heard from other people that described demons looking different, which makes sense since there are many kinds of demons.
During these dreams, another demon would be biting my hand and another one my feet and pulling my body like they were trying to pull me off the bed. They stunk horribly like smoke and some other weird smells. The closest to describe it was like rotting flesh and something burning, a smell so unclean that I had never smelled before until then. They were bald, their ears were pointed, they had oval big eyes like a mixture of black and a red color, and their eyes took up the entire upper part of their faces. Their teeth were razor sharp looking with blood stains on them. When they smiled it looked like a joker smile that covered the entire lower part of their faces. They had long hands and fingers with long black claws.
Then there was one over my face laughing at me. I remember finally being able to speak and saying, in the name of Jesus Christ leave, and I would say it over and over again for what seemed like hours! They would just continue to laugh at me. The only thing one of them said to me was, “WHERE IS YOUR GOD AT?”. All the while I still couldn’t move! Unfortunately, they would always be touching my private areas and jumping on me, especially on my chest! During the attacks I could barely breathe and I’m surprised I didn’t pass out due to lack of oxygen! These dream attacks happened like this over and over again for months.
During one dream when they were in my room, I remember getting up but I realized that it was my soul not my body that was up and I started to walk towards my closed door to leave the room. There was this really fat and tall man, he had a short shirt on and his stomach was hanging out of it, he had pants on and his face looked like a normal person’s face. He was holding an old fashioned looking lighted lantern. He shook his head several times and I could hear him say telepathically that I can’t leave! Then I went right back to my body and woke up. It was 3:00am!
If I wasn’t being attacked by them in my dreams, I would have a dream of my worst fears in extreme ways! Some of them included me falling and hitting the bottom, even doing this several times, or I was usually running away from someone chasing me but couldn’t see who it was. I felt the same fear and presence of the demons there even if I couldn’t see them in the dream. Sometimes the dreams even had me inside tornado’s and drown in the ocean while it was pitch black, but at the same time I still could see and know where I was at and was totally afraid of the dark. The dreams were so vivid and so real! Sometimes I would wake up while in the middle of the dream and I could still feel it, as though I was still in the dream even though I was now awake. Being awake, I would still feel whatever was around me or touching me that was in my dream! These feelings still continued even after minutes had gone by with me being awake. When I would wake up, the clock would always say 3:00 am. Even when I was attacked by the demons in the dream and woke up it was always 3:00am. After waking up I would be extremely thirsty and had to drink two full glasses of water.
Breaking from the main story…
In 2002, a couple of years before all the attacks got really bad in my dreams, I actually saw a demon while being awake for the first time. All the other times I saw demons it was only in my dreams, but this was the first time I saw one in its true form while being awake. On this occasion, I was with a male friend who I had met through mutual friends. He seemed very nice. He used to be a minister but was struggling with his faith and said that he had given into satan. He said it was too hard to fight temptation any longer, but he missed the Lord desperately. I thought I could help him but did not know that being around him opened up dark spiritual doors. Anytime we saw each other we would just talk about God and spiritual things. Talking about God is something I have always liked to do, it’s my passion. One time while hanging out with him we decided to take a drive since it was really nice out. While he was driving, I started to feel this seducing and alluring feeling. The guy looked over at me and asked me if I found him attractive. I said yes, then he suddenly had this mischievous look in his eyes and his mouth started to curl up and then I saw a demon come out of him. I couldn’t see the guy anymore just the demon. The demon looked exactly the same as the demons in my dreams. It leaned forward out of him and stabbed me in the heart with a dagger, then the demon leaned back and entered back inside the guy! Thankfully, I didn’t actually feel the stab. I was really scared but I felt peace at the same time knowing that I was being protected by God. I asked the guy to take me home and thankfully he did. Needless to say I stopped talking to him after that.
Continuing with the the main story…
For about a year, the attacks mainly stopped in my dreams. I would have them only once in a while instead of all the time. Then I started to get attacked while I was awake. I would feel someone laying on top of me and it would be hard to breathe. That happened a lot, almost every day. I remember it also happened one time when I was 17 but I soon forgot about it. The incident was really taken from my memory but that is a later story to tell in itself.
I would tell my dad about what was happening to me and he would always say, ”just pray about it”. That was the line he was famous for and also, “you just have to have faith”. However, praying was what I always did and FAITH is the only way I got through it all! I had no answers to why it was all happening to me. Then I finally met someone who had the spiritual gift of visions. He told me about my attacks, even before I said anything and he knew nothing about me! We became good friends and I got along with his wife and kids, too. Shortly after, they got baptized at my church and the attacks got worse, ten times worse. I didn’t know why the attacks got worse until recently when I went to the healing center and found out that my church was involved in the occult.
There’s so much I would have to write a book!
I moved in with the family because they understood my attacks and my family didn’t. We all slept in the front room because it was harder on all of us being in separate rooms. It sounds strange but at that time I needed a lot of help and they did too because we were all being attacked. The kids could see the demons. They were able to see demons before I ever met them. They had a lot of the same spiritual gifts as their dad.
Then the demons would enter into me and also the family I was staying with. I had to cast out demons from the two kids several times and the whole family and I would have to cast out demons from them, too. Sometimes this would last for a couple of weeks and then we would get breaks. During the attacks we hardly had any sleep because of fighting them off. I can’t even begin to tell you how scary and mentally and physically exhausting this all was! Picture yourself the most tired you have ever been and then on top of that, being attacked by one or more demons! That’s what was happening to us. I was able to cast them out myself at times, but it was hard. The demons always came back, either right away or soon after. Thankfully, it never got as bad as some possessions I’ve read about. I would say the demons were more attached to me most of the time.
These attacks broke my family apart. When I would finally get them to understand me, I would feel a demons presence and then I would know, at times, the demon’s motives and emotions. I could hear them saying things to someone next to me, “whispering in their ear”, tempting them to do something, and then I would see the person responding and them not knowing that it was a demon influencing them. Whatever I was saying to that person, like trying to convince them of a demons presence, if the person was starting to understand and believe me then it was like the belief was erased from their mind instantly. Then they acted like they did not know what was I talking about. I could also at times hear what the person was thinking in their mind, too. I mostly was given this type of telepathic reading when the other person was under attack by a demon but they weren’t aware of it. It was so beyond frustrating because it was happening all the time! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere because I would feel the demons, who were attached to other people, jump on me because they knew I was aware of them. They followed me and I would feel them literally jump on me at times. It took days to get rid of the demon or demons depending on how many attached to me! Sometimes I would have to fight them off mentally. Trying to get rid of them could be very suffocating!!! It’s like your chest is extremely heavy, making it hard to breathe. You can feel them trying to enter into your body and control your thoughts. It takes all of your energy, sometimes fighting for hours or even days at a time, at least for me it did. I can’t just push them off, it doesn’t work. I’ve tried trust me! It sounds crazy but it is true. It takes a lot more than that, a lot of mental strength. Your soul, your salvation, has to be worth it to you to keep up the fight against them! FAITH and help and mercy from the Lord Jesus Christ is what is needed above all!!!
I had a vision that several ministers in my Church were turning evil and being manipulated by demons. I foresaw the men leaving soon and breaking up the Church. The minister’s that I saw were going to leave lived far away and were coming to visit the very next Sunday. I was afraid to go because I didn’t want to see evil in them because I loved them and I had great respect for them. I grew up listening to them my whole life and we were extremely close. They were like my family. As I was leaving for Church, I felt something jump on my back. It was hanging on me with its claws. There were two sets of claws on the top of my back and two more on the lower part of my back. The demon stayed on my back for three full days, day and night. When I got to Church, I saw the men’s eyes turn black because a demon had entered into them. Then their eyes went back to normal when the demon left. This went on through the whole service plus the lights kept flickering and even turning off at times. There was much dread and evil in the room and I was so frightened that the vision I saw about the men was coming to pass!
I went home crying really bad. I was overwhelmed from the attacks and the men turning to the dark side and my family not understanding and the demon on my back that wouldn’t get off me, with its claws that were extremely painful. I ended up laying on the couch sobbing uncontrollably. I felt so hopeless! Demons kept saying over and over in my head, “satan come and get me, take me”. Their voices sounded like my own voice and I had no control over them (they actually did this to me all the time not just at this particular moment). I started to feel my chest hurt. I actually felt like I was having a heart attack and a mental break down together then I started to twitch all over extremely violently. It got worse every time a demon touched me, I felt like I was having an epileptic seizure. I had never experienced seizures before in all my life until this moment. After going through all this for what seemed like hours, I finally got up and called my dad and told him I wanted to die! I couldn’t take the attacks anymore and I was so sick of the demons that wouldn’t get off of me and out of my head! I warned him about the men and what I saw when I was at Church but he didn’t believe me. He was getting upset at what I was saying about the men and told me it wasn’t true. He said if that was going to happen to the men that God would have showed him first before me since he’s a minister and I’m not. Also, since I’m a woman I can’t be a minister according to him and his religion.
I asked him to pray with me. He said he would and told me to drive to the Church. I drove to the Church because the men and my dad were having a meeting there. I almost crashed because I was crying so hard. While driving there, a few cars were coming towards me and then disappeared! I cant tell in human words how scary this all was and how overwhelmed I felt. I really shouldn’t have been driving in the mental state I was in, but if I wanted my dad to pray for me I had to go the Church where he was at. He told me he would come over later after the meeting to pray for me but I couldn’t wait. I was feeling too physically and mentally weak. I walked into the Church. My dad was waiting there with the men and there was a chair in the middle of the Church. I asked my dad what was going on and he said that all of the men including him were going to minister to me. They all put their hands on my head and put anointed oil on my forehead and prayed individually. During the prayer, I felt demons trying to enter into me several times that were attached to the men. I felt ones leave that were attached to me and go into the men. I was able to read some of the men’s thoughts. They were saying that I was crazy and that I needed medication. They were also saying that I had let this evil into my life and that I was just doing this for attention. When the prayers were done, I opened my eyes and saw one of the ministers sitting on the ground looking at me scared, like he had been knocked down or something. Later on, my dad told me that the minister that was on the ground had told him that he had never felt demonic power like that before and he had been a traveling minister for over 50 years! After they prayed, the men went into another room like it was no big deal. Soon afterwards, I started to feel demons touch me again.
When the attacks were extremely bad, it made things seem hopeless to me. At times, to the point where I didn’t want to live any more. I had always been a healthy, normal person with no mental illness. I had never been crazy, ever! I lived what I felt was a normal life until what I thought was normal suddenly changed and threw my life and everything I knew upside down. Very traumatizing!!! The things I have experienced would make anyone want to give up! Some people don’t believe me even today. If they do believe me then they say things like, “oh well, demons can’t do this and they can’t do that”. Well I’m here to tell you that THEY CAN and they’ll do anything to mess with your head and what you see. They are all around us dwelling on the earth. Their main purpose is to manipulate, trick, and destroy us. Remember, when satan was kicked out of heaven 1/3 of the angels went with him. They were cast down to the earth to walk to and fro so trust me, he has helpers.
I would see people’s faces change, too. I would see their eyes turn black, a lot like the movie “Exorcism of Emily Rose”. I can relate so much to that movie but some of it was different for me than what the movie showed. That movie has good visualization showing what some attacks from demons are like, and what it’s like when they are on top of you and try to enter into you. It’s a true story. I had never seen the movie before my attacks! But when I did watch it, I was in shock as to how similar her experiences were to mine! Like the pressure of the demons on top of you; them trying to enter into you; peoples faces changing; how your senses are magnified like hearing, and seeing, and feeling coldness all around you and horrible smells when they are around including the smell of something burning; attacks happening mostly at 3:00 am while you’re sleeping (keep in mind though that the attacks can happened at any time).
Trust me, I’m not trying to copy her story nor would I want to.
They attack you in ways that make you think you’re crazy, with illusions. One time I was driving down the street and I was looking at the skate park to my immediate right, I remember that vividly, and then all of a sudden the scenery changes and I’m on the wrong side of the street in the far left lane with a car inches from hitting me head on! There was a driveway to my immediate left and I turned into and barely made it!
There were several times where I saw a car coming right at me, in my lane, and it would disappear! Another time, a friend and I were going to a food bank when I parked on the side street and went to open the door. Something told me to wait and look in the side view mirror. I didn’t see anything so I thought the coast was clear. I started to open the door then all of a sudden this school bus came out of nowhere, I didn’t even hear it coming! I was amazed that it was right there because I had just looked in the side view mirror! the bus was going extremely fast and it was literally only about 2 – 3 inches from the side of my car. I felt an evil presence from the driver when the bus drove by.
Demon don’t just mess with you with cars, they can move objects around too and can hide them. They would mess with my stereo, TV, and the lights all the time. Most of all, they like to make you angry and get you to fight with everyone. A lot of times how they do this is when you’re talking to someone, what you would hear would be totally opposite of what the person was saying or vice a versa! This has happened to me thousands of times. Satan and demons are very powerful, but keep in mind they’re not stronger than God! They can’t do anything that He is not aware of or that is out of His complete control.
Two times, I was literally picked up from my feet (I felt like a feather because I was lifted with incredible ease), my body was in mid-air, and my head was heading down to the floor! Each time this happened, it was in different locations and different situations but the same motion and force. In one of the locations, I was roller skating. I was having a good day meaning it was one of the days I was not directly attacked but I still would see demons in peoples’ eyes wherever I went. I would call this having a break because I would feel at peace even though I could see them, etc.. I was lifted up from my skates and my head was heading straight down to the skate floor, then all of a sudden I felt someone pick me up and put me back on my feet! I looked very briefly to see if anyone saw this, but to my amazement no one was looking at me or acting in a manner as if they saw what just happened and the skating rink was packed! Then I felt a cold sensation coming from the crowd of people standing around the skating rink watching people skate. I immediately noticed a boy that was all dark and his eyes were glowing. I blinked then when I opened my eyes he was gone! The other time I was picked up was when I was washing my hair. I was standing leaning over the tub using a removable shower head then I felt someone pick me up from my feet. My head was heading really fast to the bottom of the tub and I could hear in my mind someone saying, “I want to break your neck”! Then I was lifted right back on my feet in a standing position. I felt at peace knowing God had just protected me!
Demons can travel through magazines, TV, movies, internet, and music! I’ve had to cast demons out and away from me many times while doing any of these things. I’m extremely careful now of what I watch, look at, and listen to.
One time, I was working out to a popular work out video (I would rather not say who the instructor was). She was stretching down then flipped her head up fast but her body was still bent down, then her eyes seemed different all of a sudden. At first, I felt this magnetic like feeling to her eyes, like I was being hypnotized. I couldn’t stop looking at her eyes, they looked like they were sparkling. This part is really hard to explain. There was this tunnel vision that started happening where I could still see her eyes but everything else was black. I started to feel powerful energy pulling me into the tunnel, then I started to lose my balance and I felt my soul being pulled into the tunnel. Then I turned my head and closed my eyes and when I opened my eyes again everything went back to normal. I fell on the ground speechless and in shock of what just had happened! That was the strongest and longest tunnel vision I had ever experienced. Other times, I would see lust demons in people (it doesn’t have to be in person, they can be on TV, in pictures, etc.) and they would have the same pulling, magnetic like feeling to their sparkling, hypnotizing eyes. I would start to see a little tunnel forming, but as soon as I saw this I quickly closed my eyes and looked the other way, the same as what I did with the workout instructor. Sometimes I felt a cold sensation, too.
One foggy night, I was visiting a friend and she left me alone at her house to go pick her husband up from work. She asked me if I wanted to go too but I was reading the Bible and didn’t want to stop reading since I was feeling at peace, as a lot of times I would be attacked while reading it. So I thought I would be ok. I was trying to be brave because whenever I was alone I was attacked even more. I was reading the Bible in her room and I had the Christian station on in the front room at a medium volume, when all of a sudden it turned up full blast and then it turned down again. This pattern lasted for a few minutes, then it went low again and I heard footsteps and chains dragging right outside her bedroom door! I didn’t even look up, I was so scared and I felt extremely cold. I continued trying to read the Bible and pray for the unclean spirit to go away. My friend came home soon after. I started to tell her what had happened. She sat down and looked shocked and told me on the drive to get her husband, she was listening to the same Christian music I was and the station turned to several other stations. When she would put it back to the station she was listening to, the station would then change again. Then the radio turned off completely and she heard what sounded like children jumping up and down in the back seat and evil laughs coming from the back seat as well! All of a sudden, she saw a little girl in the middle of the road and she swerved to the side of the road to avoid hitting the girl and the girl vanished! Then my friend saw a telephone pole right in front of her and stopped only inches away from hitting it head on!
The strongest attack I had was with satan himself, but before I was visited by him I was visited by God. It was a tug of war going on between the two, literally. I was hugging my friend and I felt through his arms this shock of energy so powerful that it literally brought me to the ground, then I felt this power go through my body. My friend said I hit my head on the dryer but I remember sitting on the ground. I felt a fire in my chest that could have literally burned me up, but it didn’t. It was so strong! I felt like I was dying because my body was in so much pain all over but at the same time I was so happy! I know this sounds strange. I managed to get up and walk into the kitchen. The feeling was so strong, it felt like if God was any closer I would have died! I asked Him to take it away because I could hardly breathe, but I didn’t want Him to go either. I felt so complete! I’ve never, ever felt LOVE like that so powerful! I’ve felt His love a lot in my life but not that strong before. I felt a sense of belonging, like I was home, that I’d never felt. To be in the presence of your Creator! Words can’t describe how wonderful it was! Words can never come close to describe how HAPPY I was! I couldn’t stop crying but they were tears of JOY! God spoke to me in my heart, not with an audible voice, and kept saying that He and Jesus loved me and that I was not Alone and that He was preparing me for something great! He said He was opening my eyes to what was all around me in the spiritual world while being on this earth. He said many things that just healed my heart! All that was running through my head was thoughts of Moses and I understood why he had to be transfigured to see God face to face. The only word that kept coming to my mind was JOY! This feeling lasted for about 10 minutes. It was the strongest and longest I had ever felt God, but I couldn’t see Him.
Then the atmosphere changed immediately and the room turned ice cold. It was a hot, summer day and we had no air conditioning! My teeth were chattering and my bones literally felt like ice. I could see my breath in front of me, and I knew the cold was from satan. I knew it was him because I had never felt power like that from any demon before!! This was different, it was unbelievable dread. I felt a fiery feeling in the pit of my stomach and the power he possessed was extremely strong, similar to God’s power but God’s was peace and love and stronger than satan’s power which was fear and torture. I was so scared, the word FEAR can’t even come close to describe what it felt like! My stomach felt like it was on fire, I wanted to throw up, and I felt really dirty. I felt an ice cold hand go into my chest and grab my heart, squeezing extremely hard! Even though I had just encountered God, I couldn’t even think to call on Him. The memory of Him, for a couple of minutes, was taken from me. As soon as the memory of God’s presence came back I started to pray with everything I had in me. It was so hard to think, my thoughts were being invaded by satan’s voice. I had barely any physical energy because I was using all the mental energy I had to fight for my soul. I felt Satan’s hand start to pull out my soul halfway. I couldn’t see anything but I knew exactly what was going on. I could hear satan say in my head that he had my soul and that it was “too late, give it up” and “if you don’t, I’m taking it”! I could hear him laughing. I sincerely thought I was going to be destroyed!
Then the Holy Spirit came back again into me and my chest was on fire like before, with the same intensity. I fell to the floor and felt God’s surge of power, the same as before, go throughout my body. When it went through my legs, I couldn’t stand but I didn’t pass out. When I was finally able to stand, I went and sat down in the front room on the chair. The feeling of God being with me didn’t last that long then I felt satan again, then a couple of seconds later I felt God again, then satan again. By this time I was so mentally and physically exhausted I had to lay down on the couch. My stomach was on fire and I felt satan’s spirit enter into my stomach and I felt like I wanted to throw up again, but worse. I was sweating and cold at the same time. I could see my breath literally when I blew in the air, like ice, and it was hot in the house! As I said previously, it was summer. I could feel him and he was saying in my head with my own voice (which was weird to experience), “I have your soul” and I said, “no you don’t”! I asked my friend to pray with me and he grabbed my hand and that’s all I remember until the next morning when I woke up. My friend said that my eyes had started to change into a round/oval shape and then they turned black. He said that I spoke to him in Latin and then in English, but instead of my voice it sounded like that of a horrible, male monster! The voice said, “I have her soul” and my friend told satan he didn’t! My friend continued the prayer and when he was finished said, “in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen”. He said my eyes went from black to normal and that I looked at him and then passed out.
That was the most intense thing I have ever gone through in my life and it’s all true! God wanted me to warn others about what I had experienced. He said that demons are more powerful than ever before since they know that God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is coming back soon! He doesn’t want us to be deceived about how the dark side works. I’m not an expert on the subject, I can only talk about what I experienced. God is the only one who knows everything.
These experiences, while horrible as they were, taught me so much and I continue to learn from what was taught me. I had to face myself in every way because demons expose all your faults and weaknesses. The biggest lesson I learned is how truly precious our souls are to God and how much the demons want them.
I give all honor and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for without Him I would not literally be here! God bless all of you in your spiritual journey! A question I would ask all of you is, how important is your soul to you?
I have another story called, “The Offer From satan” that talks about other demonic experiences I had when I was 8 years old.
