On the evening of March the 31st, this year, I was watching YouTube before I went to bed. Idly, after watching some of one of Pastor Mike’s talks on entities, I clicked on a video in the playlist titled “The Most Cursed Books in the World.”
It was a click-bait video, but showed actual footage (I believe) of a book written by a witch or a wizard. I paused the video to look and read a page. I realized as I was reading it that I shouldn’t be and that what I was looking at was real. The page was giving instructions on how to contact devils.
At about 4am early the next morning, I had to get out of bed briefly to have a snack and go to the bathroom. Returning to bed, I tossed and turned for about ten minutes when out of the blue I felt something cold and malignant come over my spirit. I had not yet fallen asleep.
I was on my side in the bed facing the wall. I was too scared to move or turn around. It felt like something was putting pressure on my throat and on my upper arm. It was though something was leaning over me in the bed. I felt nothing physical and kept my eyes tightly shut. I am not a superstitious person, but this was a very strong feeling in my soul and spirit that I couldn’t explain away.
I prayed “Help me!” in my heart. It was strange because I knew there was Someone who I could pray to but at first I could not think of the Lord’s name.
Then I remembered the name of the Lord Jesus, and I prayed again- more fervently than before. I prayed in my heart as I was too scared to speak aloud. (I was pretending to sleep as I felt that stirring or moving would provoke an attack.) I prayed “Please help me, Lord Jesus! Please help me!”
I knew there was a specific prayer for these kinds of experiences, but when I tried to remember it- it was like groping through a mental cloud of confusion. Yet I felt that the thing was starting to leave. As it withdrew the prayer came to me.
So I prayed the third time. “Lord, cover me with Thy blood.” The thing was almost gone.
I began saying in my head to the thing (whatever it was) “Get out.” Then I sat up and spat it out as it was leaving. I wanted it to know that I wanted nothing to do with it- would have nothing to do with it.
I believe this was partly due to my own carelessness earlier that night.
I believe that by reading the page in that Youtube video I opened a portal of some kind. Unlike other occasions where I haven’t had any real relationship with the Lord and so ‘got away with’ messing with checking this sort of stuff out, this time around was different. I do have a real relationship. I had also prayed that night in a way that was different to what I’ve prayed before- more earnestly, with more understanding- and with an assurance of peace within myself towards God.
It was this last aspect which I believe caused blip on the devil’s radar. Not a dramatic blip- more a tiny speck, but just enough to catch his attention out of the corner of his eye, so that he’d command a low-ranking minion to ‘check it out’ and stifle what caused it.
Pastor Mike, I learned a couple of serious lessons that night. The first one is that you have to be very careful what you look at and watch on the internet. Images and videos especially shouldn’t be trifled with. This is what I would like to warn other people about.
The second lesson is that it is no big deal to the Lord to deal with one of these entities, no matter how terrifying they are to us. God didn’t need to do anything earth-shattering to protect me. He just told it to leave me alone, and it couldn’t do anything but obey.
