WHAT IF I GIVE IN?

Post by mysteryy23 on Mon Jun 29, 2009 6:34 am

DURING SLEEP SOMETIMES A POWERFUL SPIRIT, THING, BEING COMES TO ME TO FIGHT ME. THIS IS NOT A DREAM TO ME WHEN IT OCCURS. IT USUALLY GOES LIKE THIS...I AM TOTALLY AWAKE BUT MY BODY APPEARS AS IF I AM SLEEPING. THEN THE FIGHT OCCURS. IT'S AS IF SOMETHING IS HOLDING ME DOWN I AM ALMOST COMPLETELY PARALYZED. A FEW TIMES SOMEONE IS RIGHT BESIDE ME. I AM SCREAMING OUT TO THEM FOR HELP BUT THEY DON'T HEAR ME. ONCE IN A BLUE I AM ABLE TO HIT THEM BUT THEY DON'T FEEL IT. I FEEL SO HELPLESS BUT I KEEP FIGHTING IT WITH EVERYTHING I HAVE IN ME, BUT I AM STILL NOT SURE HOW I AM FIGHTING IT BECUSE I AM NOT USUALLY ABLE TO MOVE. IT'S KIND OF LIKE A PUSH FIGHT AND I AM DOING THE PUSHING FORWARD AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BREAK MYSELF FROM THAT STATE. SOMETIMES WHEN IT HAPPENS I BECOME WEAK AND ALMOST GIVE IN TO IT. I SEE NO ONE BUT I KNOW SOMETHING IS THERE DOING SOMETHING TO ME AND I AM STILL UNAWARE OF WHAT IT IS FIGHTING ME FOR. THEN WHEN IT BREAKS IT'S AS IF I WAS SWIMMING UP IN DEEP WATER DESPERATE TO GET SOME AIR AND AT THAT MOMENT WHEN I TAKE A BREATH IS WHEN I WOULD AWAKE AND WHEN I SAY AWALE I MEAN I CAN MOVE MY BODY AND SOMEONE CAN SEE THAT. I AM ALWAYS IN TEARS AND HYSTERICAL AND WHOEVER WAS BESIDE ME WHEN IT OCCURED WOULD EITHER GET A BEAT DOWN OR CURSED OUT FOR NOT HELPING ME. SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT THAT IS WAS "A WITCH RIDING MY BACK". THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING SINCE I WAS 14YEARS OLD. I AM NOW 29 WHAT COULD THIS BE? AND WHAT IF I GIVE IN?

Demons - Physical Attack
The theme of demons in dreams goes beyond simple
symbols into the actual manifestation of demonic attack
while sleeping.

A major phenomenon experienced all over the world with
respect to demonic manifestation is referred to by the
scientific community in our culture as "sleep paralysis".

Sleep paralysis is defined by Wikipedia as:

Sleep paralysis is a common condition characterized by
transient partial or total paralysis of skeletal muscles and
areflexia that occurs upon awakening from sleep or less
often while falling asleep. Stimuli such as touch or sound
may terminate the episode, which usually has a duration of
seconds to minutes

Physiologically, it is closely related to the paralysis that
occurs as a natural part of REM (rapid eye movement)
sleep, which is known as REM atonia. Sleep paralysis
occurs when the brain awakes from a REM state, but the
bodily paralysis persists. This leaves the person fully
conscious, but unable to move. In addition, the state may
be accompanied by terrifying hallucinations (hypnopompic
or hypnagogic) and an acute sense of danger [3]. Sleep
paralysis is particularly frightening to the individual due to
the vividness of such hallucinations[4].

In layman's terms, sleep paralysis feels as though you are
being held down or sat on, completely unable to move,
speak, or see but are totally conscious of your
surroundings in spite of the inability to see or move.

As a bible believing Christian, and one who has
experienced this phenomenon personally, I am certain
there is a spiritual explanation for it. In my experience, in
addition to the sleep paralysis, simultaneously present is a
thick tangible manifestation of demonic spirits. Some
people see them, others do not.

Many people have written in for an interpretation to this
experience as though it were a dream or a vision asking
what the meaning is or how to stop the dreams from
recurring.

The aforementioned experience is not a dream or a vision
it is reality. It is a demonic attack on a person while they
are asleep.

Biblically, the devil was able to physically take Jesus to a
high place, a messenger of Satan was sent to buffet Paul,
and there was demonic power which prevented Paul from
achieving missionary goals that he would have liked to
achieve thus establishing a biblical basis for a real present
enemy who still has power available to him even if he has
lost his authority.
Very often the manifestation of these attacks is commonly after the person attacked has
made a decision to follow the Lord, when they have renewed their faith, or when they
have made a decision to go deeper in the things of God. It is as though the spirit
responsible for the attack is trying to prevent the spiritual advancement of the individual
involved.

At this point, the natural question is, How do you prevent it and/or rebuke it?

Call on the name of the Lord in the midst of such an attack. If you cannot use your mouth
to do so, using your heart to call out His name is equally, if not more, effective. I have
personally experienced this manifestation in the past. When my voice wouldn't work,
calling on the name of the Lord with all of my heart not only halted the attack immediately
but the spirit literally fled, instantly leaving the atmosphere in my bedroom so completely
pure and devoid of spiritual clutter that it was nothing short of miraculous. There is
power in the Name of the Lord.

The most effective way to prevent a future attack is to be baptized in the Holy Spirit (Acts
1:5) and to have a fervent, effectual, praying person pray for your deliverance (Why this
is important). After having my former pastor pray over me, I have not had another
manifestation.

Can it happen to a spirit filled, born again Christian? Yes. Although others have, I had
never had this event happen to me before I was spirit filled and born again, only after.
Remember this manifestation is outside of your body, it is not a demon possessing you
from the inside of your body. As much as a demon can responsible for sickness and
illness, they are also responsible for "sleep paralysis".

mysteryy23 -

What you've experienced is a demonic attack. I've experienced this as well (both before becoming saved and afterwards) though they don't come as frequently. It is said that these will often occur when people who are considering becoming saved or are moving deeper in their walk with the Lord.

The advice that True Flight provided is sound. This topic has also been discussed before, here is the link:

But as others I have had this and you can break it. Don't let them terrify you in the night, keep your bible handy by your bed, read it before bed, I've even gone so far as to annoint my bed with oil. I know it is terrifying but to them the word of God is more terrifying and sharper than a two edged sword.

Psalms 91:5

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

Song of Solomon 3:8

all of them wearing the sword, all experienced in battle, each with his sword at his side, prepared for the terrors of the night.



Father we lift up mysteryy23 and ask that you cover her with your grace, love and mercy at night. We ask for her protection in the night hours by your warrior angels. We thank you for giving Mysteryy23 the voice that is needed to use your word to fight this enemy and be victorious is Jesus name.
