In the last 7 or 8 months I've had some experiences that I really don't know how to explain. I've seen things that are demonic and characteristic of 'haunting' experiences. I'm an exterminator so I spend a good deal of time in people's houses and apartments when they're home and not home. Earlier this year I went into an apartment to treat for wasp on a tenents patio. But let me say at the outset when I entered the apartment I already picked up strange and eerie vibes. Sometimes you just get weird feelings about a place and it makes you uncomfortable. I remember there was a lot of old pictures on the wall and it was a bit creepy. Usually, I enjoy looking at old pictures, but this apartment was just off. Anyways, the tenant wasn't home so I went ahead and got to work. When I went outside I left the screen door open- like all the way open. You never know when you might have to run from wasp. So I'm spraying and I hear behind me the screen door closing all the way by itself. I actually caught the door moving out of the corner of my eye when it shut completely. My first reaction was 'no way.' So I did what anyone else might have done- I tried to recreate what happened. I thought maybe the wind made the door slide shut. But it wasn't windy at all. Then I tried to close the door myself to see how much pressure I would have to put on it to make it close. Let me tell you this screen door took a good deal of pressure to force it shut. Safe to say I packed my bag and immediatly left the apartment. To this day I still wonder about that particular incident. The next incident was in my house. What's interesting about this stuff is that it initially starts of pretty slow but then it intensifies. I usually read my Bible and other books at our dining room table. Right above the dining room is my daughters room. While reading, I would hear what sounded like footsteps or someone walking right above me. I would always hear it at night after I put my kids to bed. So I did what anyone else would do, I went up stairs to discipline my daughter for getting out of bed. But every time I'd get up stairs I'd find her sound asleep. Weird right? This went on a couple nights in a row and then it stopped. However one night I woke up around 3 or 4 in the morning and I saw what looked like a tall black shadow walk from the stairway directly in the direction of my daughters room. It was so weird that I refused to tell anyone until the next night I saw what looked like a transparent boy run from the hallway (from the same stairs) into my room and vanished near the wall. Nothing could have prepared me for that. I'm still having a hard time believing what I saw. Initially I was thinking I was seeing things. But two nights in a row? The next morning I called my pastor and my mom and they assured me it was demonic in nature. Could what I saw been the same thing I was hearing walking above me in my daughters room? I'm not sure. But I did what any Christian man (or parent) would do- I went in every room and demanded the presence (or whatever) to leave. And it stopped for a long time. Sadly, my daughter now wakes up at night crying. When we ask her what's wrong? She says there's a tall camouflage man who walks in her room and stands next to her bed. Most parents would dismiss this kind of talk if they let their children watch horror movies. I know people who do just that. But we don't allow our children to watch much tv at all. And when they do it's cartoons. So we're trying to figure out where she's getting this stuff. It's getting to the point now where we believe her. I mean we don't have a reason not to. Finally, today at work I was working in a apartment and suddenly the hall light switch in the apartment turned on. Lol I'm thinking 'come on, there's no way that switch turned on like that.' And sure enough, it was turned on. I tried to recreate what I heard (as in the switch flipping) and I don't see how it could have been done. And it happened suddenly. One second the lights off, and then it's on. This was an apartment where an older lady lived. The property itself houses senior citizens and there has been multiple murders on the property. The most recent homicide involved a lady who was thrown from the 9th floor window. I wouldn't be surprised if the property was a dwelling place of demons. How should we as Christians understand these sort of things? This is a topic that gets very little attention. I searched sermonaudio and found one sermon that actually address Spirits, Ghost, and UFOs specifically and it's very well done. For those of you who are pastors, have you ever had to address these sort of topics both in and outside the Church? And what advice would you give someone who has experienced these sort of things?
