One dark rain filled night with lots of pop up thunder bursts. Driving aimlessly around in an era that was very easy to get lost and turned around in. The driving was crazy and dangerous and we had a very close call. We had a hard time finding the road back but finally we hit a well lit strip on a main thoroughfare, headed in the right direction. It was endless but an easy drive, As I looked out the passenger window in an industrial area with tall propane or fuel silos of some kind I noticed something odd...
There were three silos about 25 feet tall and each one had a demon painted on it, each demon was very detailed and well drawn and was like a genie appearing out of a puff of smoke from a hole in the ground. The area was lit by floodlights but there were trees lining the street that cast a deep shadow underneath them. If the hallucinogenic hyper real artworks were not bizarre enough, I noticed three small figures on bikes that were all in shadow under the trees, poised at the curve, these child figures were just shadowy outlines. As our car came even with them they all pushed off in unison into the road right next to the car. It seemed t me they were playing with summoning of the demons or were even demonic themselves. I knew that this probably meant something although I'm a believer in higher powers, it showed me again there are often dark forces at work. We continued to have a very dangerous drive after we manged to return to the interstate, lots of poor visibility and people slowing suddenly and unexpectedly for the storm squalls and we had a few more near misses and white knuckle driving. The next day I read on the news that a person had died on the interstate and had mistakenly entered the off ramp and had a head on driving the wrong way. I remembered back to the night before and it made me question what we often take for granted. What do you think, just coincidence and imagination? Did I even see what I think I saw or was it some type of illusion?

Hi Starswift,

There really are dark things around, and I have seen things that would make the biggest debunker/atheist cry like a baby and confess themselves to the creator in front of everyone. Meaning I know absolutely as fact they exist.

Until you actually see things that aren't normal, usually people won't believe it happened, and will pass it off as hallucination, tired, etc. They will call it opinion, and anything so they can continue onward without consequence to their own life.

Only you know what you saw, and those 3 people on motor bikes does sound pretty odd, but it is hard to tell if they were paranormal. It is possible though.

I'm with NoCorruptionAllowed. You really have to experience demonism first hand to know what it is. Once my grandparents were driving on a dark road at night in central Florida (middle of nowhere), and an orb of light followed their car for a while after breaking into 3 pieces. It eventually went away, but ever since that night, my grandmother has been seeing demons at night.

I myself have had some strange and unsettling experiences more often than I'd like. All I can do is pray and maintain my faith.

We are living on the battle grouds between fallen angels and God's elect angels. Every now and then, the fighting bleeds into our layer of reality. That's why I rest my faith in Christ.

I appreciate your response.
Although I've seen orbs and haven't felt threatened by them.
As for shadow forces, I've seen them enough to know that there are things are their is
a battle going on. The best defense is to be strong in spirit.

It was kids, but why were kids doing something like that?
They may have been playing at magic but invoking forces that are best not played with.
The people who don't see have not been called strongly and probably are drifting through life, like many, if not most.
Thanks for replying.

Really? Do they make medications for people who share dreams with each other (in detail)?

Those kids were on motor bikes? The weather was really windy and rain too? Seeing 3 kids on bikes in that situation is definitely strange.
I saw 3 wise men looking dudes with long straggly hair and beards with long walking canes on a hot summer day, wearing dark dirty looking sack cloth robes, walking across a freeway overpass on I-5 one time back in 1984, and after I got past them about 75 yards, I turned around to see them again and they had vanished. This still haunts me today, although the 3 kids on bikes isn't quite as dramatic, it still is enough to get one thinking.

There is a lot of weird stuff that we never see, and sometimes if we are lucky, (or unlucky as the case may be), these things seem to choose us for a visit. I remember some things I have seen, and when I saw them I knew I was being punished. At least that is what first came to mind. I have seen crowds of demons all looking directly at me and laughing that I was totally screwed. I knew they were just trying to generate fear in me, and I told them that their souls would be cast into an eternal lake of fire. They all screamed and scattered. That scared me a lot to put it mildly. Took me years to get over seeing those things. It is all good now and served a purpose.

What you saw was strange, I doubt you need to worry about being targeted by them, so like you said, stay faithful and be happy

Dark forces I call demons, are out and about.
I'd rather not experience them anymore.
I doubt I get that wish.

Demons painted on silos and kids on bikes on dark and stormy nights isn't how "demonic summoning" works.

When deciding if something you consider to be odd is paranormal or not, you have to rule out the mundane, and there is zero evidence that there was anything beyond the mundane occurring during your driving trip.

Kids will ride their bikes in any weather if they can get away with it. Unless they're lily-livered jackanapes. People paint all sorts of weird ish on silos. I passed one with a giant grinning hippie shroom on it once. Farmers are crazy (and awesome, apparently).

So uh, chill? Demons aren't/weren't/probably never will be after you unless you do something really important/stupid.

There is evil, but there aren't "demons" per se.

What you experienced are the acts of malevolent spirits, who turn so dark they're forbidden bodies and can only interface with this material realm through paranormal activity.

Essentially they're glitches in the system, and they'll all be dealt with in time. Either they'll grow bored of evil and beg to be reset (returned unto the light) or they'll be forcibly reset if they refuse to relent.

Best advice possible: stay away from the occult.

OR maybe they are just a bunch of local kids doing kids stuff late at night.

Dunno what you saw, so your impressions are just as valid as anyone else's guess.

This whole demon/angel thing is just so much generalized bunkum.....to a degree. These things fight with each other and humans occasionally get dragged into it for sport. Nothing more, nothing less. It's been going on since before we had fire, and will rage on long after we're gone.

Occasionally we get glimpses and freak out all over the place that it has meaning, or personal meaning for the person who saw them. Yeah......usually not. It just means our perceptions are off because everything ISN'T all about us. We insist in polarizing things and insisting what we see makes sense.

Those realms don't have to make sense to us and their crap is their crap.

Will it latch onto us for grins & giggles?
you bet....
Stuff like that is just opportunic, some worse than others.

True.
But three 20 foot demons painted behind them
with a clear intent and being out late on a rainy night in an industrial area, Even if playing I think even they were aware of an association with the three large figures behind them, so perhaps they were engaging in mind tricks for their own amusement, seems as likely explanation as any? Just having been around for a while and seeing a certain number of Satanic groups up to no good, in general, it pays to be aware.

One thing the dark forces don't like is the light.
Sunshine, good magic, prayer.
I don't want to see them either ; )

Perhaps you haven't met a teenager. Teenagers like dark and edgy stuff. They like being out when they aren't supposed to. They like misbehaving. They like painting graffiti. It's part of being a teenager. Is this news to you or something?

They were riding BMX style bikes, kids about 6-12.
I've run into a lot of Satanists and known psychopaths and satanists.
One I think was trying to lure me out to a human sacrifice with me as the intended victim ; )
Others had a satanic cult that met overnight in areas that I was a manager over and covered the walls in satanic symbols.
Ran into another who was a leader or Magus out on the highway performing black magic.
So, they are around. A lot of the business world and worldly people aren't much better with the focus on money and power. The truth is the best protection. Be safe and keep the faith.
