    Hey everyone,

    Before i became a Christian, I was able to see demons and rarely angels.

    I went to a youth retreat, became a true Christian, and thought i wouldn't be able to see them anymore, which was good because they scared me so much.

    After the retreat i've been committing my life fully to Jesus. A week later I saw them again.

    They show up more often when i'm scared. Coming home from a movie called 'Flight Plan', I was fearful of going home because I knew I would see them. Sure enough, I did.

    It's become so normal for me to see them, I wish i could put more emphasis on this :).

    A friend told me that God wanted him to tell me that Satan will only resort to showing himself if he knows that I will bring people to Christ (sweet!).

    When I have some more time, I will make a list and post a few stories of my experiences with demons. I've had a few conversations with them. Some are interesting.

    But, God has taught me lessons through this. That I shouldn't be afraid of them. That i shouldn't be fascinated with the demonic spirits. And that God will show them to me for a reason (to pray for certain people, etc).



    Does anyone else here have this gift?

    I didn't even ask for it, I received it before I had the Holy Spirit.

    I would like to ask anyone if there is anything I should pray for about this gift? I don't really know what to do with it anymore. Sometimes they do still scare me. Any verses?


    :) Thanks. God bless you.

    lol. Yea sure.


    NewGuy - God sent the Holy Spirit when Jesus died. The Holy Spirit in Itself is a spiritual gift; And He's very giving. Listen to some preachings and ask your church leaders about tongues, prophecy and vision. I believe everyone can pray in tongues, you just can't doubt it. And then gifts will come to you if you keep praying for them. If they don't, then you don't need to them :) Or it could be a test of faith

    I don't know your background, but could you have invited Satan in somehow (even unknowlingly?)

    When I was demon oppressed, I would know things before they happened (including what people would say), see or hear various signs, etc. I had been an atheist, and hadn't asked for these gifts which were obviously from Satan. (Many people in similar situations see demons, fallen angels).

    They started because I played the Ouija board, thinking it was just another game, like Monopoly. Once I trusted Christ as my sinbearer, the things dwindled and completely stopped after a few years. (As far as I know).

    Here's the action I took: trusted Christ as my sinbearer, asked God to forgive all my sins, including the occult ones (the Ouija board and things done because of my Indian ancestry), got rid of the Ouija Board (already), and every time some demonic oppression would happen, I would pray to God for protection, and then out loud I would command Satan to take his demons and depart because I belong to Jesus and He shed His blood for me. Then I would be free. The next time something occured, I would command Satan again. No conversations with him or his demons - they are all liars.

    If I were in your situation, I would ask God to show if I had opened the door to Satan somehow, and to show me if there were any occult items around so I could get rid of them. Then I would proceed accordingly. If you wish, large churches often have someone on staff who can walk you through this.

    God gives us spiritual gift(s), upon salvation. They are to make us to be more Christlike and to equip us for the ministry. Gifts like teaching, preaching, edification (encouraging), etc. Obviously much different from the gift you have. Satan is very devious, and would love to make you think his gift is from God.

    God bless you, friend. I will pray for your freedom. "The battle is not yours, but God's."
    Aloha in Jesus


    1 Pet 5:6-11
    6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
    7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
    8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
    9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
    10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
    11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
    (NIV)

    I know this is a VERY old thread, but I have the same thing.. I've been a Christian my whole life (I turn 17 this May) and I have seen angels/demons/ghosts most of it.. I've even been attacked threatened and nearly killed... I talked to my pastor and he told me this is a part of a spiritual gift, is this true?

    Their is a gift of being in the spirit and seeing angels. Demons are usually only seen when their is something or someone needs deliverance or healing.

    This is not something to play at. It can be dangerous. Without the proper experience and prayer cover satan can attach evil spirits and demons to you or someone who you are praying for. Satan can and will give you these experiences to make you think you are in the Holy Spirit's power. Be careful and seek someone strong in this to help you learn how to descern the truth.

    Yes, I have seen angels and I have been envolved in healing and casting out evil spirits and demons.

    I also have had over 7 years of visions with God. But this did not start without a lot of healing and a deep walk in the Holy Spirit.

    I would say this is a spiritual gift, ask God to show you how to use it for Him.
    I have started getting some of this but it comes and goes.
    I have read about some amazing uses of this gift.

    Knightspaintball, I encourage you not to make assumptions. When you see them ask Yahweh what you're to do and He will tell you. That's the way all spiritual gifts work including discerning of spirits because direction needs to come from Yahweh.

    Ok I'll look into it, thanks for the answers :) I've just always wondered because some people just call me crazy or whatever and I just wasn't sure, when I was younger I had a dream I was attacked by a shadow and woke up w/ scratch marks and blood on my back (no pets at the time) and I really freaked out, I've had many other weird things like this happen but a lot of times it's when I'm just laying in bed or sitting down comfortable.. Anyway my point is thank you :)

    I seen a few demons when I was younger and "unhappy" God for a time. As I got better and fixed my relationship with God I seen my last demon when at a park late at night. I stopped at a bathroom which had the only light in the park. As I approached I seen this black create about maybe 2 feet tall. It had a black fuzzy light around it (best way to explain it).

    It turned around and seen me, then freaked out and went running towards the dark. Before it reached the dark it vanished, like it just evaporated into this air. I've never forgotten about it. It must have sense I was a christian and thats why it ran.

    The other thing that I commonly seen for most of my life was this hell hound looking wolf. It was way bigger then a regular wolf, had a cone shaped looking snout and had neon green eyes that burned like they were on fire (burned green). I often seem them (more then one) when it was night and I was alone near woods.

    I too see demons, angels, fallen angels, and I also have an uncanny ability to 'read' people (to tell whether or not the are lying to me as well as I can see their inner demons and angels persay) they also attack me, and this has all started when my mother was diagnosed with M.S. I was told that my 'abilities' were obtained due to a multiple periods of massive emotional stress, there is nothing wrong with it, if anything it has increased my amount of faith, just refer to the bible, god's word is what you need right now, there are many others who go through the same thing, I even have two friends whom of which go through it, they are both (or more accurately were) athiest, but the experience has given them a sense of faith, and are now agnostic, almost believers. We are very lucky to have this 'gift'

    I was wondering if you played any witch boards or something of that nature. I was interested in your ability. May Jesus bless you and guide with this gift or ability.

    I've been in ministry for 18 years, and I couldn't have answered your post any better than Bethedinsmore. Perfect answer!

    I do agree with the post mostly. However, Heb 5:14 "But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."

    Of course, not seek it.

    1) Daniel 10:5-6 "Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude." Also, Matt 28:1-4. II Kings 6:17 "And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha."

    You can hear angels sing Angels in Kansas church

    Isa 6 is one Biblical example of all the senses being used for spiritual purposes

    Again, we're not to seek these experiences. When they're from Yahweh, they're for His purposes.
