Many times in the recent past I have heard people speak of the existence of portals. This word is often used in the context where a 'suspected' area of high supernatural or unexplainable activity has been occurring. Whilst its a difficult concept to prove, a portal could be described as being "the conduit, gate, or break in the lining between our world and another".
Even at Church, where we were having all sort of strange and tangible occurrences with multiple witnesses, a number of people suggested that there may be a portal in the Church. Reasons for this that were offered could have been due to past rituals of a spiritual nature (Aboriginal or otherwise) and numerous people, including two cleaners who had heard voices and seen figures suggested the phenomenon was entering in the corner of one room. One morning after Church, a witness and I saw a black human shaped form emerge from that corner as we chatted in the cafe. As it walked across the floor toward the counselling room we followed it and once in the counselling room we were shouted at by an unseen voice that said a word that sounded like "Geshu" in a gravelly and agressive manner.
Then last month I was talking to a relative of mine who is a teenager who was sharing with me a very strange experience that they had.
It should be noted that this young man is noted for his honesty and integrity both at home and school, to the point where this is reflected in his school reports. There is no benefit to him to make up the story you are about to read, nor does he wish to be identified.
The events he relayed occurred between the ages of 6 and 8 years old. It began with him seeing what he described as 'red eyes' that would appear in his room. The eyes would appear at around the 5 foot mark and watch him from one side of the room. When he hid his head under his doona, the eyes would soon appear under there with him. This was very unnerving and he would share this with his parents, who unsure of whether it was imagination or reality, cautiously prayed over the room.
The eyes stopped but something else began.
During daylight as well as night time a 'hole' opened up on the wall. It was about 2 feet in diameter. This appearance lasted from minutes to hours. There was no rhyme or reason for it, no pattern. The boy felt like he had to endure it and did not share with his parents what he saw.
Because inside the portal it was a view of a battle of biblical proportions.
What he saw were Angels and demons warring. A battle that was ongoing, intense and furious. And he also saw a great dragon like creature that at times would grasp at the entrance and try to break through, to the point where its talons would grip the edges of the portal, only to be subdued by the angels.
No-one but that boy can vouch for the reality of what he saw. Whether it was in his mind or was real is speculation.
But we don't need to speculate on the fact that that very war is written of in scripture: REV 12:7-9
- Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world - he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
There is still a battle raging, a battle that is not one of equal powers, as Christ won victory over the work of Satan on the cross when He was crucified and rose again. But nevertheless, it is a battle that must continue until the return of Christ and the judgement of the nations. satan and his minions continue to harrass, oppress, posess and inflict harm, while God's angels (as you will read in many other stories in our blog) protect humans until the end of the present 'time' is fulfilled and God restores the universe back to it's perfect state.
