The Third Night
Submitted by Pat
I was unsaved and living with a Christian family about 3 weeks when I ask Jesus into my heart as Lord and Savior. It was about 3am, and I shall never forget the peace that entered me, I knew I was saved.
On the 3rd night I had to use the restroom, which was in the basement. I had not dared going down there before and everything seemed normal as I went into the basement and promptly took my seat(no pun intended)! The basement steps went down from the door which was the only way in or out of that basement. As the room had the usual 4 corners, one under the steps, one was the bathroom stall, and the other two on the other side of the room. As soon as I sat down I was aware of a presence that I could not see but felt with every nerve in my body. The evil presence, though I could not see it, communicated with me. It let me know exactly where it was, in the corner under the steps which as I said was the only way out, and it interjected the thought "I'm between you and the door".
At first the fear was paralyzing. I had only been a Christian 3 days and knew nothing about spiritual warfare. I suddenly had a knowledge of scripture and a boldness to come against it in the name of Jesus saying things I'd never heard such as 'The Lord rebuke you satan, I come against you by the blood of the lamb, you have no authority here, leave in the name of Jesus etc." and as it kept repeating, "I'm between you and the door". I kept fighting back in the spirit. I know an angel was with me in that basement giving me the protection and the spiritual ammunition I needed.
This warfare lasted about 10 minutes and then I knew precisely the moment it left. I then thanked the Lord and walked right up those steps with nothing to fear. It was gone. That was a spirit of fear which came against me to frighten me away from my NEW Faith. I was by no means grounded in The Word. I did not have the head knowledge for spiritual warfare, but that angel sure did! The battle was intense, and yet when I walked up those stairs I had perfect peace, because it was over!
This happened 25 yrs. ago, and I still remember it like it was yesterday.
