I described a strange event that my dad experienced in my article about how I got involved in studying Bible prophecy. My dad has experienced other strange events in his life. In this article, I will tell you about two more strange experiences that my dad has faced.
One day my dad had a conversation with a man that turned to the topic of Religion. The man told my dad information about a religion whose name I am not allowed to disclose but is one that most Christians tend to react very negatively towards.
Soon after the conversation, my dad went to a library to checkout some religious books. My dad had some interest in learning more about this religion, but “unfortunately”, there were not many religious books for him to look at.
My dad removed one book from the shelf to scan. He read a few passages about an ancient people known as the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls before he lost interest in the book. When my dad put the book back on the shelf he felt a stabbing pain coming from his birthmark underneath his left breast. While in pain, my dad looked around to see if there was anyone who could have caused it. My dad became perplexed when he realized that there was no one even close to where he was standing. Strangely, when my dad pulled the book back from shelf the pain immediately stopped… In order to avoid that experience again, my dad checked out the mysterious book. He felt like he received a sign to read the book…
My dad did not find a lot interesting about the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls. However, my dad was amazed at what he saw when he later got to the latter half of the book. This section of the book contained material that was so different from the earlier part of the book that it seemed my dad had checked out two books in one. This part of the book strongly refuted the undisclosed religion that my dad had just heard about from the man he spoke with earlier…
My dad literally could not put the book down. My dad received little sleep that night as he stayed up to absorb the information that emanated from the book. Soon after my dad finished the book he realized that somebody or something did not want him to stray away…
One morning my dad woke up to a startling sight. My dad could see an old man’s head by his bed with a big grin on his face as he looked at my dad. My dad did not say anything while he looked in bewilderment. The old man then just vanished…
This event is puzzling. I’ve read about a Christian woman who woke up to see an old man next to her bed at this link. The major difference with that story is that the old man (who was identified by the woman as a demon) paralyzed the woman and could only be defeated when the woman sung “Jesus loves me”. My dad did not have to resort to saying something religious…the old man just vanished.
There Are More Strange Experiences
There are a few more instances where my dad dealt with strange experiences. Those experiences are not as compelling as these stories I’ve shared with you, but I might share one more experience sometime in the future if I am given permission. If anyone has any idea why these events happened or has any insight into explaining what kinds of forces might be influencing these events (especially the second event described here) please let me know.
I have also had strange experiences in my life. I share one of them in the following article which you can read at this link.

I have to complete the book I’m working on first before I could be in a position to share it.
It would be interesting to hear your experience sometime. Not that we enjoy or celebrate these things, but it seems they might have a purpose in our quest to better understand what’s going on in the spirit realm.
Thanks for sharing your experiences once again. In my dad’s case the experiences seem to have led to some good. I don’t think I’d be researching Bible prophecy-related topics right now if my dad didn’t experience what he did. I had an interesting experience recently at night. I might share it someday
As Connie has said, you have a very special gift, as your understanding of prophetic truth makes clear.
Thank you so much for sharing those stories! They are absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for the very kind complements! I greatly appreciate it! 🙂
I hope you have good test results!
He’s quite open to discussing his experiences with me. The reason I kept my description of these experiences short is because there is not much else to say about them in terms of detail. They are events that only lasts for a few seconds.
If I ever write Part 2 of how I got into Bible prophecy I’ll explain what I feel is the meaning of these strange experiences. I lack the experiences my dad had but I have an idea of why these events happened.
Dear friend, as Christians we must be ready for such experiences. You can believe much more Christians have been facing weird spiritual experiences than they report, and guess what, just because they are afraid to be mocked in their believes before family and church.
If you set a space in your webpage in order to people tell you about their own experiences, you will be surprised to see lots of pages filled with amazing facts.
Have you ever seen devil face to face? I have. Have you ever heard devil audible voice telling you that he is going to kill you or some beloved of your own? I have. Have you ever had spiritual visions with open eyes? I have. Have you ever been taken from your body by God to be in other place thousands of miles away to witness spiritually extraordinary events? I have… And it goes on.
You see, most part of our experiences in spiritual issues is related to personal ends and must be kept to our own knowledge and heart. So if you want to know something about your father experiences you must pray to the Lord and ask Him to make them clear to you and if this is according to His will, He is going to grant you all understanding about your father visions. This is my advice. This is the way I have been managing my Christian life (and experiences) during the last 28 years. Needless to say that is risky to share such experiences, as Christian people around you will think you went nuts!
May our Lord bless you.

The Martin Luther story is probably legend. I cannot think of anyone who would react so nonchalantly to a visitor by their bed.
I read one time a story of one of the old leaders of faith (Martin Luther, I think) being disturbed in the middle of the night, and when he went to see what was going on, he saw the devil. Oh, it’s you, he said, unimpressed, and went back to sleep. Hearing these stories of your father (and my wife also has stories about her family and herself) makes me suspect strongly the Martin Luther incident is just legend.
That was Smith Wigglesworth.
