Scary Encounter

“...he [Jesus] cast out the spirits with his word...”
Matthew 14:26 KJV

Brandon has left, and now I am alone here in "the Woods," inside the cottage, curled up on the couch in front of the fire place. I am overwhelmed by fright, and might I say that I am “spooked” by a dark shadowy figure which I did see by peripheral vision.

I am not saying I saw a ghost. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe in ghost hauntings, as they are referred to according to popular opinion. Contrary to the scientific community, I do however believe that the universe contains preternatural activity that is often dismissed by the secular academic minds of science. There are records, archaeologically examined among many cultures which demonstrate their belief, in times past, about supernatural phenomena. The biblical record, however, gives a much better explanation: spirit.

While attending seminary, I was writing a dissertation to receive the doctorate of Christian education. While doing some related research, I stumbled across a Bible verse taken from the New Testament book of St. Matthew. The scripture reference strongly suggests that historical Christian patriarchs undoubtedly had faith in ghostly apparitions.

“And when the disciples saw him [Jesus] walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.” – Matthew 14:26 KJV

The position that I take on the subject of pneumatology is clearly argued in the book I have written, entitled, “While Out of My Body, I saw God, Hell and the Living Dead.”

However, according to skeptic minds, I must say that it may never be clear as to what I thought I saw while being here alone inside the cottage. I may not be able to articulate the entity’s origin, and neither am I able to produce tangible evidence of its existence.

If there is any evidence to offer regarding this manifestation, it rests within this written testimony alone: this being the case, that I on August 24, 2008 I did indeed have a Scary Encounter!

Hi Dr. Mills! I read your scary encounter, and I was amazed. Since I have become a Christian I have seen clear objects walking around my room, and various other places. I've heard things I never heard before. I just know that we are surrounded by many things we can't see. I read the first chapter of your new book, and man it caused me to rethink my walk with Christ. What was it like for you seeing all these people in hell?

Hi Roger! I read your scary story and was amazed. I have had similar experiences as a Christian. I've seen clear beings walking around in my room, and hear things that aren't there. Man, I have some stories. I read the first chapter of your book, and I am learning to really dig my heals in with faith in Jesus. I don't want to end up in hell. What was it like for you to see all that?

Thank you!
