This was about 10 years ago.
I had been asleep for an hour or so, and was having such awful images in my mind. It wasn’t like a dream where there’s a flow of events. This was more like a slideshow of grotesque images one after the other. It was distressing me quite a bit.
Suddenly I was wide awake, and I thought to myself, “Someone is watching me. Someone is WATCHING me!” I opened my eyes and looked right at a devil.
My bed sits next to a post and it was clinging to it at the ceiling, looking down at me. It was the size of a small child- less than three feet tall. Its face was gargoyle-like with black eyes and long pointy ears that stuck out to the side. It had a very lean muscular body with no wings. I was seeing everything in high definition but only in shades of gray.
My reaction was calm amazement and anger at him for spying on me and putting those images in my head. It was snarling at me silently because he was surprised and angry that I could see him. In my mind I said to it, “Get out!” Immediately he sprang from the post and went down through the floor. His movements were lightening fast and effortless. As an afterthought, I thought-yelled after him, “And don’t come back!”
Somehow I knew that this was a lesser devil. The Lord spared me an encounter with a stronger one. He sent it to me to teach me a lesson.
Prior to this, I was experimenting with Tai Chi and Chi Gong. At first it was for health reasons, but as I progressed it became more and more “spiritual “. I started doing a meditation to open my third eye. I wanted to see if there was any validity to it … and I was testing God.
The meditation calls for you to focus on a star and gain energy from it. (At the time I didn’t realize that stars were angels.) After three months of daily work, I did open my third eye. In one of my meditations, I saw the Chi Gong teacher clear as day in front of me in that same high def gray scale (He lives in Minnesota). It startled me, and I opened my eyes. He was gone.
That scared me. This was real! And I knew it was wrong. I stopped doing all the meditations and exercises, but the “pressure” in my third eye persisted for a long time. Gradually it faded. The encounter with the devil happened a couple of weeks after that.
Even now, recalling this event, I feel a pressure in my third eye which I haven’t felt in years. Maybe this is why I hesitated to write out my story. But I’m a much stronger Christian today, largely due to your teaching, Pastor Mike. Like you have said, the fourth dimension is more real than ours. And I have first hand knowledge of that
