Was This a Demon?


I'm very close friends with two very "sensitive" girls. Sensitive in the paranormal sense. They both told me this story and it really creeped me out. They are pretty sure they saw a demon. The two of them were walking downtown here in the wine country. It was still light out, and they were heading for the brewery. All of a sudden they see this young man, Sam, being harassed by the police. Sam is homeless, talks to himself, has stalked people, and writes about the devil. He is pretty scary to be around.

My friends keep walking after seeing him. Slowly, a car pulls up beside them. In the back seat with the window down is a teenage girl. She is leering at them. She is wearing all black, and is almost green in skin color, much like a dead person. The look on her face was so scary that my friends took off running. One of them started to cry. As they run down the street they see the same girl standing ahead of them. It would not have been humanly possible for her to have gotten out of the car, and run down the street before them. She just appeared. They hurriedly ran into the brewery, and prayed that she wouldn't come in after them. They told me they would never wish the experience on anyone. They both have seen a lot of ghosts, but never a "demon..."

They are wondering if the demon was connected to Sam. He seems to be interested in witchcraft, and has a very negative energy to him. He actually stalked one of the girls that saw the demon. This was previous to the encounter.

What do you think this was?

Well, Well the Hot Tub is HOT... The Dance Floor is Open and Granny is up way past her bed time (😲) So I guess there is only one thing left to say...

'ALL ABOARD!" The Miss Demeaner is now boarding to go in search of the mysterious 'Night Bus' of 'Potter Lore' as it seems ' witch craft and wizard craft' are now fields that 12 years olds can speak as experts on.

The Fruity Drinks are cold... The Mugs are Iced and I've been told we have one last case of that 'special rum' from Down Under still packed under the wet bar... So let's boogie down... The Miss Demeaner Rides Again!'

Uh, Uh... They just Re-En-Stated my license... No parole for me... My Lawyer proved the bus had to be moving for me to be cited with a DWI or any other Moving Violation... So I'll keep the keys thank you very much...😲

However it'd be great if you would either fire up the Hot Tub or step into the DJ Booth...

This experience s from 2007... The last comment was a month ago and the O/P it seems never made a comment on their own experience... So my question is this, why post on this experience when there are so many other, more current ones?

as I psi-vamp I would recommended attempting shielding. It is a powerful way of warding off any unwanted energy (including demons). I have personally dealt with a demon, it was scary as hell and a pain to get rid of completely I wish you the best of luck.

Now, in reading your story it is very scary. I'm intrigued by these stories, however, I have never witnessed such an event. The insight I can give is that you discuss "Sam" as being connected to the event in a way... Sam is also "Samael" or "Samil" in which is basically referencing the fallen angel, or satan. If you ever have the opportunity to read "The Trial of God" I surely recommend it. Not only does Elie Wiesel do a good job of debating things of a spiritual nature, but an odd character named Sam appears in the book. I will not ruin the book's plot, but the Sam in your story may indeed have a connection of some sort to your friends' experience.

I've never heard of a green being. Maybe it is a demon, I read a story that told that a reptile-like demon was angry and stalking the family because of a kid that liked ouiji boards.

Yes my friend went through the same experience today she was fine all day and after lunch she coloring then she was clinching her hands and looked evil and and we didn't know what she was doing so we let her do her thing and then on her paper she wrote HELP ME! And she started crying out of the middle of nowhere and she told our teacher she needed to talk to my other friend and she said that his name was Luther's Demon and he told her to follow what he says or he will hurt her friends and family and he will get what he wants he told her to go 5 days without eating... And now she I going to follow him and now when we see her clinching her hands we undo it because she will get a flashback of him and she said that everywhere she goes she sees him. We all think this is a demon do you think this is and by the way she was crying in tears and she doesn't pull jokes on us.

Sorry, but I just can't believe this story is true. It sounds made up. Or maybe your friends were just pulling your leg. 😕

My friends, If there was a demon there it would be for a reason. Demons mostly use human forms, (With the exception of lesser demons of course.) But what your speaking of sounds like something I've read upon. Though, Due to a bad memory. I fail to remember. More than likely a spirit of some sort.

Typically a demon wouldn't appear to someone who writes about the devil, I mean look at how many satanic goths there are (not to be prejudice), and how many demons tantalize them? Besides if not all angels are benevolent then not all demons are malevolent.

And ghosts are the remaining spirits of formerly living beings, demons reign from hell.

Another point, not all sketchy looking people are demons, yeah they may seem to have a demonic essence but that doesn't mean it is.

This is difficult to diagnose with this little information. They may have been linking with this person. Demons are not Ghosts, and Ghosts are not demons, Seraphim needs to read "Angles (and Demons) " by Dr. Peter Kreeft. I will tell you I have experienced real demons, and they are terrifying. Spiritual fortification is paramount in this situation.

Yikes, sounds like you obviously saw what you saw. It could have been a demon, but considering it did nothing more then scare you, by doing things weird, it is really questionable as to whether it was a demon or some type of ghost.

Demons and Ghosts are Not the same. Ghosts can be you or me, not able to pass on to the next life. Energy left over from a previous life, lost love or hate. Demons are a lot more powerful, they usually have been taking energy from others, they can push other ghosts from a house or surrounding area out. This Homeless man was probably influenced by something bad, since he was around at all the wrong times, say a prayer for Protection for yourself and your loved ones. God Bless and Take Care.

Demons and ghosts are really the same things although most people do not realize this.

the girl probaly is connected to the dude named Sam... He sounds pretty suspicious and if you stopp to think about it he was probaly stalking the girl so he could observe her in such a way that he could see she would be scared of I can do the same thing by a first impression on a boy or girl without even talking to them.

maybe it was a demon I got told a demon can show its red eyes and pin you down. It can scream at you as well and take your breathe away. They can also make footsteps. I've never seen one but a lad I know has. Thanks for sharing your story. 😊

This sounds as a demon to me, luckily I have never seen or been in the presence of one, but I have read many stories. It may sound stupid, but to prevent this try to pray often. Even if you don't believe in God, the power of prayer will protect you and your friends. I am not some freaky religious girl, but I do wish of God's blessings on you and your friends.
