Saved from Satanism
Christopher T. - 11/30/08
I have gotten to see that very realm, the
spiritual realm, which
most never get the chance to see in this life.
I was born and raised Christian but after getting out of the Army, things started
to go downhill. I slowly faded away from my faith, only to find myself staring
down a copy of "The Satanic Bible" by Anton Lavey. After reading it I pretty
much agreed with the book in that it's just supposed to be "philosophy" with no
belief in the afterlife, God or satan. So here I am an atheist proclaiming I'm a
Satanist, meanwhile I have no belief that such a character even existed. Well
was I wrong...
I now live in Colorado but when I was back in Virginia one night I was going to
bed. All of a sudden out of nowhere this itching urge came over me and it's as
if I was just a puppet. I started inciting blasphemous things, blaspheming God
(things I would rather not say nor type). While I was doing this I was getting a
huge buildup of pressure/energy in my solar plexus/solar chakra area (in the
occult world there are seven key points ranging from the base of your spine,
going up to the crown of your skull, called chakras, in which these are the
central points of the body where energy goes through). On the moment of me
finishing my last word my left foot twitches and kicks/goes off the foot of the
bed... funny thing is there's nothing off the foot of my bed but air; however,
when my foot went off it literally hit something. I then heard this object I had
hit make a tumbling/falling noise. After about 3-4 seconds of this object
falling -- BAM -- it's as if someone had dropped/crashed a bowling ball directly
through the floor right beneath me. It's also as if this energy/pressure that
built up just shot off directly below me and caused this impact. On the moment
of impact everything started shaking violently, as if a huge earthquake. To make
things stranger, I would have my cell phone charging next to my bed and the
light from that and my alarm clock would usually illuminate off of my white wall
paper enough that I could see at night; however, everything went completely
pitch and utterly black. I then had the feeling as if I was just falling through
this blackness. While I was falling I could start to see as below me immerged
fiery red flames coming out of what looked like lava pits just shooting up. I
then detached from my body and watched it plummet into the fiery abyss. On the
moment of my body vanishing out of sight I was immediately back in my room, at
which point this huge, insane, immense, feeling of raw, carnal, physical power
overcame me; it was like nothing I had ever felt before; it wasn't even
comparable to anything, at the time it felt so great.
Well that taught me two things at that point in time:
1. There's more to life than just atheism.
2. There's real power to be had in the occult/Satanism (however, most people
don't realize there is a real demonic power behind this).
So at that point I was on a huge power trip -- seeking, searching for ways to
grow in esoteric knowledge and occult power. At which point I wanted to get in
with the elite of the elite in the Illuminati for there lied great esoteric
power, and one way to go about achieving this was to become a freemason. Of
course I want to find out just about everything before hand. Well, during my
searches and studies I came across a guy named Bill Schnoebelen who had trekked
down the same path through the occult as I had and then some, only to now be a
born-again Christian. At that point in time it put that "why" question in my
head (Why did this guy who had all this occult power give it up and come back to
Anyways it took quite some time, but continually over my course seeking for
truth above all things the truth began to grow on me. I used to despise the
Bible and Christians and would try to disprove everything. But it (the Bible)
began to grow on me as self-evident, eventually leading me to know that what was
in it was true which led me back to proclaiming/accepting Jesus Christ as my
Lord and Savior and a closer walk with the one true God Who has created all
To give you an example of how things affect you, such as tattoos, on my right
forearm (I got this particular one done before I was involved in the occult) was
the "angel of death" which I prided myself on (and we know pride isn't a good
thing). Well, during my occult ventures I had a feeling as if something was
within myself (I realize now how many demonic entities I had let in but didn't
at the time). Even then I had a feeling as if something was in me that was alien
to my body. To make this short, none the less, it was an entity who proclaimed
himself to be "Azrael," which name I had never heard of before. Come to find out
later that in the first book of Enoch in the Quran, the being Azrael is also
known as the angel of death... But wait!!! I thought the Quran was a false
deception and not-true as it is not of God. You're RIGHT! However, most people
don't realize that behind all these false religions is a real power. Yhese
people aren't worshiping stone statues; it's none other than Satan himself and
his many followers, which are capable of what most would perceive of miraculous
feats (although they are far from this). Also, don't forget that Lucifer himself
is a light bearer; however, there are many false lights. Without God/Jesus you
can't distinguish between them. After all, I had all the light I could ever
want, but it was of a falseness. Bill Schnoebelen words it best when he says
"the illusion of light can be the deepest sort of darkness."
What God would have us do now is read his Word. That's right, for it does say
that man is not to live on bread alone, but by every Word of God. And the Word
of God, after all, is the Bible! Friends, we are VERY -- and I mean it when I
say it VERY -- close to the end. I cross-reference everything with the Bible to
see the validity behind things, and I tell you what is going on behind the
scenes (the info is there for those who seek) but everything is falling right
into place with the new world order right now as I type this very testimony.
Jesus just instructs us to keep watch for His return, which is what would should
There are many other things which I have seen and many other stories as well but
perhaps for another time.
Above all, I just know I want to live my life for God and bring Him all the
glory He deserves. After all, if it wasn't for Him I wouldn't be here.
He has told me He's going to make me a preacher, which I'm working on. I would
love if you guys could perhaps pray for Him to set me in the right direction.
However, he is using me in great ways right now. To give you one example, at my
old job I worked at a correctional halfway house. The lady in charge of the
meals there was Christian. She was telling me about how the modular building
next door was haunted and that when she would go over there at night she would
hear footsteps and things would turn on and off (computers, lights, etc.). I
told her how we as Christians have power over these spirits, as there are many
clear statements of such in the New Testament. I usually go over there every
night around midnight (as I worked then from 6pm-4am) to restock on supplies and
such in the basement. So I figured, why not say a blessing of prayer? As I was
doing such I for the first time ever since I worked there I heard something move
and felt the presence of whatever spirit was there. The spirit then overcame me
and I really got onto it, binding, rebuking and casting it back to the
bottomless pit in Jesus' name. Afterward, I then gave God thanks and praise and
sang Him a few worship songs. After getting the supplies together I then walked
out and locked the basement door. As I was walking up the steps outside I looked
up and saw a white orb/ball of light no farther away than 10 feet from me and
about two inches in diameter which did a vertical loop and then shot off clear
in the opposite direction. Not entirely sure what this was but I figured it was
the spirit that had no choice but to flee from that place.
Which reminds me of one more story.
When I came back to Jesus/God I had a huge
bonfire of all my occult books, etc. Also, my mother-in-law came out of
witchcraft at around the same time. The last book, which was "Memnoch the Devil"
by Anne Rice, didn't want to burn. My mother-in-law began to say a prayer over
the book and began pleading the blood of Jesus over it, at which point I looked
up in the sky and over the horizon a huge bright white light appeared about 20
times the size of a star and on the moment of my eyes coming in contact with it,
it immediately began to disappear. Not entirely sure what this was, but
interesting none the less.
All I know is there isn't much time left and we will begin to see many miracles,
as He told me in the end days (which we are living them right now). His Holy
Spirit is going to over pour and we will see miraculous things as never before.
Though don't forget the biggest miracle ever: That Jesus Christ died on the
cross for through His blood the forgiveness of our sins... How great! I wept
when I realized how great a price He had paid and what He had saved us from.
Above all, I feel my purpose is to inform -- inform fellow Christians that "HEY!
the spiritual realm is real and I have seen it, not to mention our time draws
nigh." And especially to all the non-believers, even more so people involved in
the occult/Satanism/witchcraft/New Age religions. To give them the good news of
the Gospel and spread the Word of Jesus Christ, also to tell them my testimony
through the occult/Satanism and coming back to walking with Jesus/God, if
nothing else to put that "why" question in their mind, just as Bill Schnoebelen
did, then the Holy Spirit can take it from there and work on them the same way
it did to me!
I'm so glad I found a place were I could share my testimony. I hope you guys
have walked away with more than you knew before reading. I'd like to say a
prayer: "Dear God, we come together before you, for You say when there are two
or more gathered that Your presence is there. I just want to thank You for
everything, and for places like this on the Internet that we can come together
and congregate in fellowship. I thank you for your son Jesus Christ and giving
Him up to die upon the cross, and I pray that You only bring everyone to a
closer walk with You every day as we progress through this journey. I also pray
that we as men of God be lifted up that we may be able to carry out Your will
upon earth as You would have it and that You would use us in such a way as to
bring You all the glory that You deserve and that we would give it all to You
and not for ourselves. Lord, I just again want to thank You and praise You, for
You are so great. I don't believe there are words to explain; however, You know
and can read our hearts, I pray that we all see through all the delusions,
illusions and deceptions and to the truth, and I thank You for giving us Your
Word, for Your Word is the truth. I pray these things in Jesus' name. Amen!
God truly is AWESOME and I now
see how He will constantly keep changing me (i.e.: decreasing me evermore while
constantly filling me with His Holy Spirit). Others have noticed the change,
including my wife. Of course we give God the glory for bringing about this
change. How great! For now I feel/know I can speak of the Word to bring God the
glory whereas before people might have said, "Wow, what a great man -- saved by
his own intellect," people will realize how great God is and say, "Wow, what a
great and awesome God Who is true and has saved this man by grace and raised him
up in the Body of Christ!"
