Like it or not, we have been born again into a world where spiritual battles rage. In a post on the reality of the spiritual realm, I asked if anyone had stories of how the spiritual realm had impacted their lives. This one by Frank was too good not to post:
"About 10 years ago, I was returning from a Christian businessmen's meeting with my wife. I was traveling along a country road which I knew very well. It was about 10pm and raining. The road was quite busy and I was behind a long line of cars doing about 50 to 60 mph.
Suddenly I heard the quietest whisper in my spirit.
"Pull back, pull back, pull back!"
Instantly, I was alert, and took my foot off the accelerator, and held it over the brake. The gap between my car and all the others widened as I scanned ahead, totally perplexed.
Suddenly a massive black monster heaved out of the hedge and launched across the front of the car with a huge bang as I violently wrenched the wheel over and skidded to a halt. Glancing at my shocked but unhurt wife, and her smashed side window, I leapt out of the car in time to see a totally black cow behind the car lurch drunkenly to its feet and stagger away bellowing.
By this time cars were all over the place along with a herd of cows which had followed the leader through the now flattened hedge and fence.
I know that we had massive demonic opposition to the work we were doing as a Christian business. I know that Satan is a murderer. At the jab of the demonic goad, the cow had leapt through the barbed wire fence. I was driving a Renault Espace which has a very wedge shaped front. The cow's muddy impact marks were right beyond the centre line, and all over the screen. The shape of the car swept it off its feet and tossed it right over the screen. The damage was minimal because my speed had totally dropped at the warning of the Holy Spirit.
When I called the farmer the next day, he was at a total loss as to why it had happened. There was only one black cow in a herd of mixed white cattle.
Thank God for the Holy Spirit.
Thank God that we can learn to hear his voice if we choose to."
