I recommed that you seek the answers from the Creator of all existance. Ask Him who He is, what He wants for you, and why these episodes are occuring.
If God is Christ, then He will reveal Himself to you in that manor, if God is something else, then you will know. You will find that many on this
forum have similar experiences, but some are good, some are bad. There is not enough consistency between each individual case to paint an accurate
picture, only enough to know that you arent alone. That is why you need to go directly to God with this.
We are in the midst of an unseen war between good and evil spirits. They are fighting for dominion over earth and heaven, and some of them will use us
as pawns if we dont know any better. This is why I take my episodes seriously.
Gosh. A war between good and evil spirits...fighting for dominion over heaven...what BS! So the angels are just standing around while the evil
spirits run amok? Too much importance is given to evil spirits. Something is evil if it's actions are evil. If it ceases to act in an evil way, it
is no longer evil. That can be said of humans too, the only other creation with free will to disobey God.
Spirits as you say have a specification. There are males and females, we cannot see them unless they take on a form. Angels do not come in male and
female varieties, they are something different. Humans you know. They are more numerous than humans.
I was with you on the The Creator of All Existence, but that's all. You say God is Christ, but The Messiah never once claimed that himself. Seems
the Christians these days don't follow what the Messiah actually said. Is it any wonder that he will return to correct all the wrong things ascribed
Back to the OP. Sleep paralysis. I'm not sure about the medical definition, because whenever it happened to me, it wasn't due to some medical
factor. Mostly at night or just before waking, and many times as I'm coming out of a significant dream*. Although once I had an episode at around
11am which I shall recount...
I had been out worshiping and hadn't had much sleep for a couple of days. So I went home and decided to get a couple hours of sleep. I lay down on
my bed for not even 5 minutes, then I couldn't move (I thought to myself here we go again). First I felt the bottom right corner of my bed being
pressed down, then it pressed my throat restricting my breathing, so I tried had to recite something then it quickly departed. I jumped off my bed
fist clenched, I was so angry, If I had have caught it, it would have got whooped :-)
*They can appear in your dreams too.
You want to decrease the occurrence, follow these simple steps:
1) Try not to to be over tired when you go to sleep, or if it does happen you won't be able to react to it.
2) Don't have pictures of people/animals all around your room
3) Have a wash before you sleep - cleanliness is next to Godliness after all (especially after sexual intercourse)
4) For men, if you wake up after a wet dream, don't go back to sleep without taking a shower
These things are only a creation of God, and God's creation can never be above Him. So nothing really too much to worry about, perhaps you may be a
little scared, but ultimately God is in control.
