BUMP IN THE NIGHT

Refuge and Hiding Place

real life situation, 7/8/2020, 1:50AM

About 1:50 this morning I heard what I thought was a small child crying, I immediately woke up from my half-asleep state to listen, as my first thought was a child is outside in the middle of the night and that can’t be good. As I sat up in bed to listen, I heard it again and this time I realized it was a cat howling/growling. (we have chickens and from time to time a bobcat, fox or coyote tries to get into the pen and can and has killed the birds) so I jumped up and grabbed a flashlight and headed out to make sure all was OK.

I walked around to the chicken coop behind the house and saw no obvious signs of chaos. So, I went into the back yard because I could still hear the cat howling/growling. Being it was pitch black It took me a moment to find the cat, it was sitting on the fence and still growling. I looked around thinking I would see another cat or coyote that it was fighting with but I never saw another animal anyplace. Eventually the cat jumped off the back side of the fence and left. It seemed a bit strange to me as normally when a cat or any animal makes it into the yard it runs off immediately upon seeing a person. This one just stayed on the fence growling and looking into the yard and not at me. I did not think much about it at the moment, that quickly changed.

I walked back into the house and immediately my hackles went up in an epic kind of way. My spiritual discernment radar was a 10 out of 10. There was something unclean in my house. (Hard to explain that feeling unless you have experienced it. For me its not uncommon as there are a lot of spiritual battles in my little town, and God has been teaching me to discern and fight the spiritual realm for quite a few years. Not my favorite spiritual gift, but I am learning the value of it.) I realized in that moment the reason I could not find another animal that the cat was fighting with was because it was seeing something I could not. And now that thing was in my house. Not cool!

I immediately started rebuking it for a minute or two, then thanked God for his authority that he has given to us and thanked him for his sacrifice on the cross and his shed blood that is our protection. Then sang a worship song I enjoy. By then my spiritual discernment radar was calm and the space was back to normal.

Less than a minute later my spidey scenes was going off again and that thing was trying to come back in. What the heck! I rebuked it again, one or two quick phrases, and it was gone. Oddly enough it took a while after that for my spiritual discernment alarms to go back to zero, what ever that thing was had some big teeth and a bad attitude.

It has been a long time since something like that had happened and this was one of the most intense feelings I have had fighting something unseen. So, I started to pray and ask God what that was all about.

I immediately got a quick flash vision of a line of silhouettes, just outlines of manlike shaped things, around 10 of them. On the left they started small around 4 feet tall and as I looked from the left to the right each one was bigger than the one before it. The first 7 or so each got taller by a foot as I looked down the line. The first one was 4’, then 5’ then 6’ etcetera down the line. The last 3 were huge, 15’ tall then 20’ then 25’ feet tall. Then the Lord showed me standing in front of the 10-foot-tall one, the 7th in line. And then I heard the Lord say “you are fighting outside of your weight class”.

I understood what he meant. It’s like a 150-pound boxer going into the boxing ring against a 250-pound heavyweight. In the natural world we would not stand a chance, but we don’t fight in the natural.

Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

Psalm 28:6-7 Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

There are 2 more important points that the Lord was telling me, for those with ears to hear please receive this.

  1. Whatever that was that walked into my house had more back bone than I have experienced before. And in the silhouette lineup that God showed me there were at least 3 more much, much bigger monsters in the line. Our enemy is ramping up and the things to come are going to be bigger and more intense than what we have experienced before. Prepare yourselves.
  2. What happened to me was no accident, nor did I leave some door open to attract this thing (ironically, I just spent the day fasting, praying and studying). It was part of my education, part of what the Lord is trying to teach me. We learn through experience (which generally sucks) and without experience we are not tempered into a strong and sharp weapon of warfare. It is the refiners fire that strengthens us and the heart of a good, good father to want to teach his children. Don’t be mad when unfortunate things happen to you, learn from them, then thanks God that he is teaching you.

One little detail I want to share that is on my heart, someone out there must need to hear this. That “thing” that walked into my house sent my radar into overdrive. But the fight I put up was not really any different than fighting something half its intensity/size. Rebuke, rejoice, worship in equal measure. If you spend lots of time and energy rebuking something, your focus is on it and not on the Lord. It has now tricked you into focusing on it and not the Father. If it won’t go away spend more time and energy rejoicing and worshiping NOT rebuking.

In my experience, nothing “ugly” can stand to be in a space that is filled with true worship.

    Thank you for your message, and sharing the list again. Yes, for the first time this year, I also experienced the growl of a demon, & I understand that dropping one’s “guard” can invite them in without being immediately aware of it.

    Jesus also said, “This kind does not go out except by prayer & fasting,” Matthew 17:21

    I did need your message, as you obviously have a larger “radar” than I do, & I will pray for the discernment to be “turned up,” as it will. Blessings to you for being willing to share it.

    thank you for posting this and yes I admit I am the one who needed to hear this

    Lesson learned:-
    ” If you spend lots of time and energy rebuking something, your focus is on it and not on the Lord. It has now tricked you into focusing on it and not the Father. If it won’t go away spend more time and energy rejoicing and worshiping NOT rebuking.”
    I have to admit, because of their ceaseless frequency of torments, very much of my time ie my life, my sleep is stolen from me.
    We have a deadly evil enemy, I know them all.
    Even though I didn’t see them all at once, graded like you, I have seen most of them. Not only in human form but in all sorts and forms of animals and creepie “things”.

    Have you ever noticed the speed of those dark “thigs” in human form, the demons, the assigned evil spirits? They move faster than the wind itself, much faster.
    To the “Open spiritual eyes”, even if they come and go swiftly, many things are reveled.
    Discerning spirits is one of the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit.
    Thank you and God bless you

    Thank you for sharing so that we can battle up in the way God & Christ wants us to do. God Bless 🙂

    Thank you for posting this – it is a most excellent example of lesson and application. I will pass this on to friends and family – AND keep it for myself as well. The LORD has also put me through battlefield training very similar to what you’ve experienced and we can’t be “over-trained”! Thank you again.

  7. Thank you for sharing. Lord, thank You.

    Shape shifting. Witchcraft. Humans morphing into animal forms. Cats are a common source. The Lord allowed me to visually see what seemed like a very strange acting sick coyote slinking along an in town public sidewalk at night. Instead of usual wild coyote behavior, this “thing” walked alongside my car as I left a Home Church I’d been a part of for years. It’s gait was “off” and weird. It’s tail tucked down between it’s legs. It never turned its fixed gaze off of me. Creepy. It was almost cartoonish looking in behavior. Unreal. Was it just a very sick coyote? The Lord later revealed to me it was a shape shifted being. Interestingly enough, He had been closing the door to that Home Church for some time. That night was my final night there. Since then the church has dissipated. Not sure if the two were related. But in seeking Him, the spiritual symbolism is blatant. Sometimes He allows us to “see” things with our spiritual eyes…the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s often hard to discern what is “real” and what is “spiritual”. My daughter He’s gifted to “see” in the spirit easily…good and bad…demonic and angelic. I once “saw” a young woman sitting at church who had “Dracula” fangs. I was like…THAT’S disturbing, Lord! WHY would she have Halloween wax teeth? Later I realized what I had “seen” was not in the physical but in the spiritual. He later unfolded the “why” He’d allowed me to see it for prayer purposes for her. Asst. Pastors daughter. Yet another church He removed me from. Thank You Lord for Your gift of Holy Spirit IN us. An internet connection to God. A search engine into the DEEP things of God.

    Sometimes, the fight is there in praise and worship. I get a very very big fight in my mind. It does not happen all the time, but one really bad event can throw it off for days.

    I have no idea whether what I experience is normal. But all I know is that I have to keep pushing on and pushing through. And ask for help and discernment from God because
    none of us can do it by ourselves.

    “I immediately got a quick flash vision of a line of silhouettes, just outlines of manlike shaped things,”

    Interesting, I have had a similar experience, with beings that cannot quite been seen (in daylight/twilight at least), but you can “sense” them there, and if you “focus” you can sort of see them kind of “silhouetting”, its hard to describe.

    Not sure about the rebuking part, but I guess this is a Christian forum, so that I wont discuss.

    However, I did wake up one night and these things were standing over my bed. I lashed out and hit one. So I can tell you however it appears, and whatever they are or what you call them (demons/aliens/etc) they in this reality at any rate appear to be solid, have physical form, my guess is if you unload a clip of 9mm into them or a well placed slice of a sword you’d hurt them.

    @McKana

    “Have you ever noticed the speed of those dark “things” in human form, the demons, the assigned evil spirits? They move faster than the wind itself, much faster.”

    This is interesting, “a dark ‘thing’ that moves faster than the wind”

    One of my earliest if not first memory of this life is of a “dream” I had.

    I was very young, but in my dream I was an adult, like I am now.

    I was with a party of people, and I know we were entering a church to hunt something, a dark force. It was dark inside, I was against the wall, there was a priest in the corner I think. Then I saw it, on the other side of the building, I went for the light switch (as it could only attack in the dark), but it was too fast, this dark ‘thing’ flashed across the room and became to ‘merge’ with me/my soul, in essence almost ‘absorbing’ me.

    In that moment I woke up terrified. It is as yet unclear to me if this was prophetic (other dreams I have had have come to pass in a sense), i.e. this is a high probability event still to come (and its looking like it might as we progress into the end of this iteration of civilization).

    The Lord wants us permanently in a position of acknowledging His presence and control over all. Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world. He wants us permanently in a position of praise and worship over all our circumstances. Praise Him in the bad stuff. Just like Paul and Silas shackled in prison knee deep in poo. They praised Him. Shackles fell off. Prison doors opened. Earthquake signaled shift in the heavenlies. REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS! I SAY IT AGAIN. REJOICE! LET YOUR GENTLENESS BE EVIDENT TO ALL. THE LORD IS NEAR. DON’T BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING. BUT PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.WITH THANKSGIVING PRESENT ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND PETITIONS TO GOD. AND THE PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS IN CHRIST JESUS. We’re in a time we must guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus. The “key” to entering His Inner Courts? Thanksgiving and praise. When the crap happens? Use your keys. Thank Him and praise Him. You’re basically acknowledging He’s in control no matter what’s happening and dissipating the power of the enemy. Purpose to posture in a position of humility and repentance. The Righteous Judge is here!!!
