I recognized that this world is evil and some delight in destroying it. Why else would there be so many movies and other media depicting the end of the world as entertainment, as if it were a game? It seemed possible to me that there is a group of people working together in secret to destroy all mankind. And they have sick, wicked pleasure doing so. They have created weapons, including thousands of the atomic variety, and if they were allowed to do so, they could wipe out all life on earth. Do these wicked people not realize they are destroying their own planet?
I was home alone taking a shower. I was troubled, imagining a nuclear mushroom cloud. If I saw that in person, what would I do? This is what I would do, I thought: walk straight toward the explosion to meet my death even faster, raising my hands up, saying, You want to kill me?! Here I come! I felt hopeless against such a destructive weapon.
But it seemed someone was there with me in the spirit, listening to my thoughts, and out of mercy knocked on the door, asking me if I would let him enter to save me. Of course.... I need a Savior! And I remembered the man who came to save the world and was crucified for our sake. I bowed down, asked forgiveness, and repented. How could I have rejected Jesus for so long? And then I began crying, still in the shower naked, when I realized he died for me and for all mankind, even though he did not have to, but he did so freely.... to save us.
He began teaching me with his word daily, and continues to do so. Now I realize what he says is the truth and no other explanation for our lives makes sense.
I have since heard things and seen things that are supernatural, helping me believe how real the spirit realm is. Example: Soon after repenting, outside at night I saw white glowing objects flying in a circular pattern over my house, in the clouds. I imagined they were angels, beings of light, sent to guard my house. I went inside to tell my wife, but she was asleep. The next night, I saw the same thing again: these quiet objects of light flying over our house, high up in the clouds. I ran inside to get my wife so she could see for herself, to prove it was not a hallucination. She came outside and saw, but seemed somewhat afraid and returned back into the house. I was surprised by her response, but glad to have a confirmation that someone else could see it. It was not only me seeing this. I felt at peace, and was thankful to have a sign that the Lord is real and that he commands the holy angels to care for his people.
We are not only flesh and blood. We are spiritual beings in a temporary physical body. Where do we go next?
This wicked world is not our home. It will suffer and is suffering horrible wars and destruction, but those that call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
