Last fall, there was a really bad car accident just a few miles from where we live. The road at this particular place winds back and forth, and is quite narrow. However, it is paved, which leads some people to think that they can take the turns too fast. Well one day, a car came around the bend so fast, (a fancy sports car, no less, reported to be going WAY over the speed limit,) that it veered into the on coming lane in order to make the turn. Sadly, another family of adults was in a car in that very lane, right when the guy went into their lane. A head on collision resulted.
The crash was so bad, that the bodies were thrown from the cars. So much blood was lost from their injuries, that the dark stains covered three car lengths long of pavement on one side, and another car length on the other side of the road.
We came upon the accident scene, right as the tow trucks came to remove all the car parts.
There was so much blood there, that it pooled in places where the road had sunk.
My kids gasped as we passed the accident scene, and I figured it was because they had seen the multitude of car pieces along the side, all smashed up. (Neither car was left, just car parts.) But instead, one of them spoke up for the others and said “mom, those people who spilled their blood on that pavement were NOT believers!”
I thought the comment kind of odd, so I asked them, “How can you tell?”
“Demons are there. They are attracted to all the spilled blood.” At this, all the kids gave their nod of agreement.
“But how can you tell if they were believers or not?”
The child who had spoken just shrugged. “I just know.”
“Do you think they died?” (After loosing so much blood, I had wondered if it was even possible for them to survive.)
“I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think so.”
When we got back home that night, we heard about the accident on the local news. The people were taken to the hospital, and a few were air lifted to another bigger hospital, in order for them to get the help they needed.
Last we heard, the people had managed to survive.
The child who had made the comment in the car earlier as we drove past the scene, told me that she was positive that if those people had died, their souls would have been taken down immediately into hell.
We all stopped then, to pray for them, that before they did leave this earth, they would become believers in Jesus Christ.
No one ever returned to the scene to mop up all the blood. It remained there, soaked, stained, and dried into the pavement for all who passed that way to see.
But we noticed an interesting thing; as the days progressed closer to Halloween, the numbers of demons seen hanging around the dried blood increased. Each time we drove by, we could see more and more demons hanging over it. Even rain didn’t change anything; the demons remained and so did the dark blood stain.
Somehow these demons seemed to obtain energy and power from the blood, almost as if they were feeding off of it. A few would brake away from it to chase us down the road, but they soon gave up the chase and returned to the area, after we bound them up in the name of Jesus and prohibited them from attacking us.
The night before Halloween, when we drove past that area, my kids told me that they could see that the demons had increased their numbers to such a level, that it was hard to focus on seeing just one. They moved and swirled as a pack, whirling upwards like a crescendo, and had greatly grown in size and evilness. They said it was almost hard to see the regular world; the demons formed such a thick, black, solid wall. Their chorus of noise, yelling, screeching, cursing, coarse laughing, and speaking in their vile tongues, reached my kids ears as I drove slowly by. I myself could not hear them, but I sensed a great evil there, and I found myself quoting Psalm 91 out loud. I then sensed and then seen an angel of the Lord riding in front of our car, fighting off the hoards of demons as we drove through them. In the back of our car, was another angel, fighting them off as we drove away.
I must admit, I was not eager to go back out onto the road again after that, but a few days later, in the evening, when we drove by that place once again, we found to my great surprise that there was no demons there at all!
We passed that place many times after, but did not see the amount of demons that we had like that night before Halloween. Maybe one or two, every now and then. We would sense that great evil had once been there, but that was about it.
Now, a year later, the county saw fit to re-pave the road, so now there is no more visual blood reminder of what had once happened there. Even tonight, as I drove past the place, I could sense that evil was haunting near by, similar to what it is like when one stumbles onto cursed land. But nothing like it had been before.
Now, on the night before this Halloween, I find myself wondering about other blood-spilled places in the world, and if the demons are gathering there to get their energy, before they go off to do their evil, just like they did when the blood of unbelievers was spilled near us.
Great evil is done on the night of Halloween. It is the demons most sacred day, when they are revered by the people, and offerings are made unto them and their master. They party with glee and gather up energy from all the revelry for the coming year.
Halloween used to be my favorite holiday, (I loved dressing up,) but now it is a day of mourning for all of us. This Halloween, we will be staying in. We will light the seven-candled menorah (because it is a Friday night, the Sabbath,) and give thanks to our Lord and God, for His protection, grace, and abounding love.
We will also pray that the people of God are protected from such malevolence that runs loose on this most evil of nights…
1 Who so dwelleth in the [a]secret of the most High, shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 [b]I will say unto the Lord, O my hope, and my fortress: he is my God, in him will I trust.
3 Surely I will deliver thee from the [c]snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He will cover thee under his wings, and thou shalt be sure under his feathers: his [d]truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 [e]Thou shalt not be afraid of the fear of the night: nor of the arrow that flieth by day:
6 Nor of the pestilence that walketh in the darkness: nor of the plague that destroyeth at noon day.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come near thee.
8 Doubtless with thine [f]eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 For thou hast said, The Lord is mine hope: thou hast set the most High for thy refuge.
10 There shall none evil come unto thee, neither shall any plague come near thy tabernacle.
11 [g]For he shall give his Angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt walk upon the lion and asp: the [h]young lion, and the dragon shalt thou tread under feet.
14 [i]Because he hath loved me, therefore will I deliver him: I will exalt him because he hath known my Name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will hear him: I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and glorify him.
16 With [j]long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
Deut. 19:10 – “That no innocent blood be shed within thy land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee to inherit, [f]lest blood be upon thee.”
Deut. 21:8-9 – “O Lord, be merciful unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and lay no innocent blood to the charge of thy people Israel, and the blood shall be forgiven them. So shalt thou take away the cry of innocent blood from thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the Lord.”
Genesis 4:8-12 – “Then Cain spake unto Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Then the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? Who answered, I cannot tell. [h]Am I my brother’s keeper? Again he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me, from the earth. Now therefore thou art cursed [j]from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thine hand. When thou shalt till the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength: a [k]vagabond and a runagate shalt thou be in the earth.”
