We break down into two groups, those with experiences and those without, so with that in mind I would like you to consider an alternative explanation
as to why you may be having these experiences and who they may be from.
I want you to consider that they could be "stepping stones" to a higher awareness of God, and that they are from God himself.
My life and the lives of those around me has been peppered with strange experiences, so much so, that I use to leave my light on, lose sleep and pray
hard that I wouldn't feel or see things. But I now know things that I didn't know before and I really believe we are living in exciting times.
Just the mere fact, that you can sense "something" around you that seems like it is violating your private space is enough to put a person on edge.
Now, add to it fthe element of darkness and a person can easily become petrified.
It's important to remember that God himself is Spirit and there has to
have been a pre-ordained way for physcial and meta-physical things to..... let's use the word communicate. Many people who have had Near Death
Experiences say they have a body but most say it is made of a different essence; light. They also say their senses are all in tact; touch, smell,
taste, hearing and sight. In fact, they claim the senses are heightened.
So you sensed something, or felt something sit or lie down on you and it scared you. You're actually not fearing the dark itself - but of the things
that are unknown to you. The things you can't readily explain.
Did you know that the Bible clearly states that the "fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge?" And did you know that most of the wonderful,
mystifying, miraculous things he did were do so under the cover of darkness?
So ask yourself - did what you experience freak you out enough to set you on a course to become more knowledgable about your experience? And could
it be remotely possible, that God himself is working in the dark- trying to get your attention?
