The Visitor

THE VISITOR 

When it came all I could see was a dark shadow standing over me - 
Pressing down on my chest.  It wanted my last breathe.

I was lying on my back completely motionless. 
I couldn’t breathe or speak, but the Word was on my chest.
.
But it pressed harder and harder with powers beyond imagination!
Evil filled the room like a cloud of smoke, and I was suffocating!

And as I laid there instilled with fear, all I could do was wonder.
Is this the end of me, and if so, how much longer?

And as it pressed and pressed I almost gave it my last breath!
But thanks be to God, the Word was on my chest!

In between my right palm and heart was a Bible some time ago my mother gave me.
She told me, “Take this wherever you go my son, and meditate on it daily.”

And at last strength returned to me to fend off this uninvited imposter!
In the name of Jesus, get off my chest! For it is written.  
No weapon formed against me shall prosper!

    Hi Larry, I enjoyed reading your testimony this afternoon. I too have had many experiences in the Spirit of The Lord, and truly the Name of Jesus if above every thing thats in the world. Love, Glenna

    this was a prime example of spiritual warefare mentioned in the Bible in ch. 6 vs. 12. It was no heart attack. A dark shadow/entity in the form of a man was pressing down on my chest . It was as if I was submerged under water. I couldn't breathe or move as just pressed and hovered over me. After a period of time it was like my head broke the surface of the water and i finally could breathe and similtaneously the entity vanished. Read the poem again. It occured just as I have it written.
