The Morning Star Rising on the First Day

Read my story by ordering my book, “Possess the Vision”


In a series of prior postings I have communicated how a life threatening illness sent me to the emergency room where the doctors did not expect me to live through the night. Being close to death, my spirit left my body and I experienced the truth of our spiritual reality. I travel to and swam in the Lake of Fire (also called the second death) where I experienced the unimaginable horrors. I went into Hell where I encountered Satan and felt the incredible hatred that he has for me. I traveled to the Judgment Seat of Christ and heard the words that no one wants to hear, as God asked me simply, “Why should you live?”

The Judgment Seat of Christ

So, I told God that I would change and the next thing I knew I back in the intensive care unit where all of this started. Although I lived through the night, I would soon find out that my troubles were far from over. My life would continue but now the devil had me on the ropes and he was coming in to finish me off. He would repeatedly attack me in the hospital and even after I left several months later.

Many of his attacks afflicted my body with severe damage. In other attacks he tried to persuade me to have a major surgery that I did not need. These attacks afflicted my job situation and my personal relationships. In fact, when all else failed, he tried to kill me with his bare hands. In general, he invoked havoc in my life with a continuous wave of events designed to abort my future as he was determined to destroy the purpose of my life.

As strange as it may sound, I paid very little heed to the Judgment Day message of my experience. The whole encounter was unbelievably frightening and depressing. I often wondered if these horrible and terrifying incidents could possibly be real. So I blocked out any thoughts of them out of my mind as much as I could. I chose not to dwell upon them or their consequences. I fact, I rationalized them away as being one really bad dream. I put all my thoughts and memories of this experience in a far away place in my mind. In short, I put them behind me.

As a result I was totally blindsided by all the things that were going to happen to me. I was about to experience the truth of living a life without the protection of God.

Jesus is the Light of the World

I was about to experience a life where there was nothing to thwart the attacks of the devil. I was going to become a victim of something that I did not even believe in. I was about to be a victim of spiritual warfare and as you will find out in my future postings, the attack will be like the one on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.
