When I was a 9 year old boy and loving the Lord, I saw Jesus in all white, dressed as a shepherd on the wing of an airplane while it was still boarding. I erroneously thought that someone was playing a trick on me to make me become highly religious. Then I became agnostic and got lost for 35 years. I began hearing, seeing, wrestling with the unseen, and witnessing powers of the invisible spirit world. Evil spirits had come into my life as a consequence of my sin.

I nearly died at the hands of these spirits - both human and demons alike. I've noticed that the humans lose their family and friends. They are scattered throughout the netherworld. They have anger and hatred in their hearts. They are masters at the art of deception. Their evil will not stop without divine intervention and restoration of the soul. They thirst for all that only a most loving Creator can give them. I have discovered that it is the human condition that we are evil and wicked without God in the afterlife. The soul is in ruins and in need of salvation.

1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel is also preached to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit.

Father God reached out to me and I heard Him say, "the battle against good and evil has been here since the beginning of time." God battles evil by salvaging souls through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Father's voice sounds of greatness not of this world. The room was filled with an ancient scent from a world long ago. God had done this to let me know that He was there in the beginning of man's time.

I suffered at the hands of these evil spirits for 7 years before I learned that they were real and hence Jesus as well. This is how Jesus had found me to begin my undeserving vocation to be an adopted child of God. He left the flock to find that one lost sheep when I saw Him on the wing of that airplane 35 years earlier.

Luke 15:4-6. What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!'

I prayed to Jesus that He would not leave me here to be evil like these people. He put my deceased mother behind me. And the most loving scent of her holding me in her bosom as a child came over me. Jesus had done this to let me know it was her. He was letting me know that I would be with my mom and that He would deliver me from this evil condition known as hell.

I asked Jesus who these spirits persecuting me were. He told me through the Spirit of truth that they were the dead. I could see that they were lost and inquired about them going to heaven. Jesus had sent down the Holy Spirit stopping in front of me and pointing at me. He was telling me that I would make atonement for them. And that He would forgive them of their sins and deliver them into heaven.

2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin.

Later, I had a dream were Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from these poor souls hearts. He was telling me that the work for atonement had been done. Then, with His powers going through me, He turned them back because the work could not be accepted until the door to my hearing and seeing them was closed. I am currently working on this.

Also. an angel had made himself known to me. I've had many visions and dreams, some arranged by God and the powers of the higher angels, guiding me away from sin, in truth, toward salvation. I thank God for my sufferings and wisdom gained. I am looking forward to being with God in heaven, seeing these spirits restored, and seeing my mom again.

Hi firefighter. Thank you for sharing your experiences here.

I am struck by the multitude of visionary insights you've had, and what you've learned from them. Your story is a good reminder of the reality of evil and the torment of souls under its power. But, moreso, the mercy of God is available to anyone who opens him or herself to Christ.

Catholics have a practice of praying for the souls in Purgatory -- that realm of the dead where purification is still underway, and souls are suffering from the evil of their lives. Very interesting that you came upon this in your journey, and actually received reassurance that our prayers can make a difference for such souls.

This testimony was written for the glory of Christ.

Revelations 12:11. "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony."

I would like to share some poetry I had written during my struggles.

evil spirits -

in my closet, under my bed, outside my window, in my head

wanting me in hell, giving me a choice, to my decline, I hear their voice

about some demons, in and out of my dreams , except for their powers, they go unseen

God knows where I've been, evil spirits driving me insane, being defiled through sin, there's nothing to gain

for deliverance, obedience is clear, I pray to my Savior, to always be near


I have both seen and had conversations with demons. One said that it was his job to do evil to me. I was also told that they settle their differences with violence. And I was possessed twice by a demon masquerading as God...his deceit was short lived.

Leviticus 19:31. Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them; I am the Lord your God.

Mediums and familiar spirits involve consulting the spirits of the dead. All contact with these or other spirits was strictly forbidden in Israel. It demonstrated lack of faith in and rebellion against God.

1 Peter 5:8-11. Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour. Resist him, steadfast, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings. The God of all grace who called you to His eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little. To him be dominion forever. Amen.

My thoughts on Salvation

God in His immense love for mankind created humans to be with Him as part of a most loving heavenly family with the angels. There is nothing more beautiful for the Christian than this. To go against this is to go against all that we were created for. It is the human condition that we are evil and wicked without God in the afterlife. One suffers spiritual death, is in ruins and of no value or worth. Man is better off had he not been born. Hence, the value of salvation is greater than the sum of our lives. God is a righteous God and must punish sin. Due to man's iniquities, man was unable to be with God and was to be punished. God, in His great plans and love for mankind sent His only begotten Son as Christ, the Redeemer, so that the souls of the believers can be salvaged and that we may not suffer the human condition of being without Him.

John 3:16. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

God has proven His love for mankind through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Before & After

Smurf wrote: "Later, I had a dream were Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from these poor souls hearts."



Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from the dead's hearts with His powers. They went from varying shades of darkness to white. Their souls are restored before going to heaven to be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends.

God calls out to mankind to accept His grace in Christ for the salvation of their souls.

Romans 10:9-10. that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
