It's Sunday.. A story, a scripture and a song.



Has it really been a month since I last posted?

Well Happy Sunday everyone! I hope this post finds you blessed.

Let me tell you what happened to me last week. I decided it was too HOT to work inside so I called my coworker and asked did she want to work outside with me. She said sure. Her office is just as stuffy as mine and it was a BEAUTIFUL day. 80 degrees

We were minding our own business sitting on a bench when a crazy homeless dude walked by talking to himself. He was seemingly having a religious debate with himself about being a christian or catholic.  I just looked at him. I'm very wary of the homeless crazy folks (unpredictable) and there are many in Berkeley especially those who walk through the campus.

All of a sudden he stops talking to himself and looks at us. Then he turned toward us standing right in front of our bench and started speaking in a demonic voice.

I am not kidding you!!

If you follow this blog you know that I'm from the church which means I am religious (I believe in God) and spiritual (I pray).  My attitude in that moment was this... I don't have time to be playing with the devil or no demons. I looked that fool dead in his eyes and started calling on the name of Jesus and pleading the blood of Jesus! We were taught at church if under demonic attack to do this.

At the same time I was praying my coworker was saying Rebuke! Rebuke! Rebuke! Please believe he stopped whatever he was saying and kept it moving.

What a crazy experience! Right?


 I'm glad my coworker was there with me and saw it too and that she got on board with praying him away. After he moved on we looked at each other in stunned silence.

Then I said, "Wasn't that crazy?" "You saw that right?" She was like... "you heard me saying REBUKE!"

Then we laughed.

You know that incredulous laughter after something straight crazy has just happened?

Yeah that!

This was a real demon y'all! This man eyes turned crazy dark with red blood around them (or were crazy dark) and his voice was straight out of a horror film! I still can't believe this actually happened... but it did. It really did!

What I am most proud of was that I was not afraid. I immediately started praying and calling on Jesus like I fight demons on the regular.  GP the demon slayer!

My blog/twitter buddy Vee reminded me of this scripture when I told the story on Twitter.

2 Timothy 1:7

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

In that moment there was no fear and I had the power of God with me. Whatever crazy dude was trying to send our way won't work.  AT ALL. I felt the presence of the Lord move him right along. He abruptly stopped speaking as soon as we started praying.

What's interesting about that day is my coworker goes to church every week on that day and I felt like listening to gospel on that day. I put on my Pandora gospel station and this song came on first.

I totally love me some Fred Hammond and this CD is one of my favorites. This song though? Get's me hyped every. single. time. From there I listened to gospel all day until I went outside.

I had given God some great praise before I went outside because every song that played was a wave your hands thank you Jesus kinda song. :)

I truly believe God got me ready for battle!

I believe that with all my heart.

Please know... You will always be able to fight the devil with the power of God and a praise in your heart.

I know as you read this you're probably like "what in the world?" Please believe I think back on that day like what was that??? My own sister said this story is hard to believe...

Has anything weird, strange or supernaturally disturbing ever happened to you?  What do you think you would have done in this situation? Do Tell!

The End.

That whole story had me like WHAAT?!!!!! Girl GET OUT! I like "GP the demon slayer" LOL. I'm glad you and your co-worker banded together like that and prayed his crazy away! I can't honestly tell you what I would've done in a situation like that. And there are plenty of homeless people in Miami but they are usually just asking for change or wanting to wash your windows...never encountered any blatantly obvious demonic souls.
