It was customary of me to eat dinner at a cafe before the evening class began. While I was savouring my meal, a student approached me. Anxious and afraid, Charles asked me.
"Do you believe in ghosts?"
His sudden interest in this unusual topic puzzled me.
"Well,I think they are evil
spirits. When a person dies, he or she's either with God or separated from God."
"Some pastors are given the power to cast out the evil spirit in Jesus' name." I went on to explain.
Attentively, he listened to me.
During the lesson, I reflected over our conversational. The subject made me felt uncanny but I needed to find out more from him.
At the end of the lesson, I noticed that he stayed behind. I broke the silence and asked him.
"Is there anything wrong? Why did you ask about ghosts ? "
"Yes,there was something terribly wrong." he paused in his speech. He looked very discomposed and distressed.
"I saw a ...headless ...female...ghost... at my washroom."
"I'm really very scared! "
I tried to stay calm but inside my jaw dropped. His bizarre experience came like a bombshell.
"Charles, let me assure you that the Lord Jesus died to destroy the works of the devil."
"Jesus, through His death and resurrection, has disarmed the forces of darkness. "
Showing him the verses from 1 John 3:8 and Colossians 2:15, I also explained to him Revelation 12:10.
"By the blood of Christ, they have overcome the devil! "
He seemed more reassured now, and I prayed with him for God's deliverance and protection.
While we approached a subway station, he admitted that he was still very frightened of visiting the washroom. I suggested this to him.
"Say this yourself, " Lord Jesus, please help me. Keep saying this as you walk towards the washroom. Focus on the Lord Jesus, think about Him only."
"Don't forget to meet me at this subway station tomorrow. I'll take you to my church. I'm praying for you." It was almost 11.30pm.
It must be after work. I saw him springing towards me with a peaceful smile spread across his face. He announced to me that there were no more eerie things in the washroom. I praised God in my heart that His deliverance, and a deep sense of joy infused me as we strolled towards the church.
Later, Charles prayed to receive Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. Surely, there is much joy in heaven! This is a true story, nota bene.
