I WAS ON THE ISLAND of TRINIDAD IN 1975, in the jungle preaching to a small group of hungry aboriginal Christians in a thatched-roof church; about 75 indigenous people and another 30 or so missionaries. Toward the end of my sermon as I made the invitation to accept Christ as personal Savior, an angry young man, son of a missionary, jumped up angrily yelling running toward me.
The muscular young man screamed at me as he hurled his fist at my face. I was so shocked- actually stunned – I had no time to protect myself. I watched as his huge fist propelled with lightning speed to my face. Shockingly, it didn’t matter. His fighter’s fist seemed to miraculously disappear. How could this happen? He followed through again. It was as though an unseen, supernatural being of some sort [perhaps an angel of God] made his fist disappear into a nonhuman nothingness.
Immediately, his dad jumped from his seat trying to pull him away. The angry young man turned quickly and with a clenched fist hit his father so hard that blood splattered all over those nearby. For over 20 minutes they fought, knocking chairs over, wrestling as though they were MMA fighters. People were crying and praying as the huge men fought; the father trying to protect himself and others from his son.
I made an urgent invitation for those who wanted to follow Christ should come forward. The blessed Holy Spirit was there. So was an evil demonic unseen spirit! There are the same unclean spirits today spoken of in the Bible.
Be careful, my friend. You cannot violate the Holy Spirit!
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
