Hello, I'm new on this forum and may have a few problems navigating my way around so please forgive me if I'm posting the wrong place. Thank you Chad for your welcome. I'll spend some time reading some of the threads I think! I've started to re-read the Bible, I read some of it many years ago and now I'm reading it through properly. When I was a little girl I sat one night reading it and had a very odd experience which I'm not sure I should post here suffice to say, I was able to 'see' a protective field of energy around me while I was reading the Bible that protected me from, not sure how to describe this, well, I could see the faces and forms of very unpleasant beings who were clawing at the boundary of this feint circle that surrounded me but they could not get past it. I felt utterly secure and protected even though at such a young age I didn't understand what it was that was protecting me. Now I believe it was a field of energy definitely from God. There I was, reading the Bible, protected from dark forces which did not want me to read it. I continued to read on, I was totally confident I would not be harmed within this strange field of protection. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I wonder if God allowed me to experience this to teach me that there are dark forces and there is protection and that protection came because I was reading the word of God and Jesus.This gave me a realization at a very young age that the power within the essence of the Bible, the word of God and Jesus is such that nothing, no matter how evil can overcome it. The power of light over darkness is incredible.
