I am writing this story on behalf of a friend of mine. It is kind of long, but I will try to keep it short and to the point -sometimes I tend to ramble, I apologize in advance.
I'm really close friends with this guy, and back last May, I happened to get on Facebook and saw a status that he had posted that read something along the lines of 'DEMONS ARE TORMENTING ME! I DONT KNOW WHAT TO Do!' (I don't remember exactly how he worded it but it was frantic and pretty intense for a Facebook status.) So I called him to see if he was okay. When I talked to him, at the time, it kind of just sounded like he was cracking under stress of exams, and graduation and such, so I did not really worry too much about it. I told him to call me if he needed to talk or anything. Well I guess things calmed down because I didn't hear from him for a while. He graduated, and over the summer he dealt with some legal issues (he'd gotten a DUI sometime before). Oh and he also had been getting into religion. He had been going to church and getting involved there and reading, and striving to learn more about God.
Well recently we were talking and he told me more about the stuff that happened to him while he was at school -around the time he posted the Facebook status- and some of the stuff he told me was creepy. He'd wake up at night and feel like he was being pinned down to his bed, he'd sometimes hear scratching on the door but no one would be in the room at the time. Other times he would just have this overwhelming fear and stress like he was being watched. I asked him how things have been since he's been out of school and living at home. He said things haven't been as bad, but every now and then he will wake up in the middle of the night out of a deep sleep and have this horrible fear that something is in the room with him. And he says he looks to the same spot of his room every night and it always seems especially dark and quiet.
I am kind of worried about him, because I have read some stories on this site that are almost exactly what he told me happens to him. I've heard before that when a nonbeliever begins to accept Jesus that can sometimes make them a target for demons. Also when the stuff at school was going on, he said that he had been drinking a lot and using some drugs and I thought that could also make him more vulnerable and be why it was so much more physical there than it is now that he is home.
Anyway, I feel kind of weird writing this. I feel like I may be jumping to conclusions too fast, but I just wanted to get other people's thoughts and advice. I'm just worried about him and felt like I should do something. Thanks for reading and I'd greatly love to hear your thoughts!
Thanks for taking the time to read, and comment.:)
