Can a Christian have an abduction experience? I would say yes. Can a Christian stop abduction experiences? I would say yes. How is it that I say this? Because I feel that I have stopped any future “attacks” against me in that area. How can a Christian stop an abduction experience? By knowing who you are in Christ Jesus – and being aware of that – knowing that you have the power and authority to tell – demand – that the entities stop because you belong to Jesus.
My name is Ellen. I am what is referred to as a born-again spirit-filled with evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2) Christian believer in Jesus, my Lord and Savior since September of 1982. I married in October of 1984 and my husband is a music minister of a small non-denominational church in Texas. My life experiences prior to being saved have been varied, as most everyone’s has been.
My father fought in WWII (bomber pilot), was career Air Force (MATS) afterwards and medically discharged in 1963. I have memories from a very young age of hearing terms like UFOs, angels, demons, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, etc. Dad had a telescope and occasionally would let us kids (I have three sisters) come outside in the back yard and look through the lens at the moon and whatever other planet he could get focused on. So from an early age I was aware of things cosmically. All these things were put far away into memories that would not be recalled until my later years, many years after becoming a Christian. The reason is that my parents divorced somewhere around 1963 and evidently was such a difficult thing for my mother that as I grew older it was as if I didn’t have a living father (he moved to another city many hours drive away) because he was never mentioned. Ever. And when he was mentioned it was never in a good light and detailed discussion regarding anything pertaining to him just did not happen.
So we go on with life and living. I become a teenager and somehow get through the late 1960s and after getting out of high school move to Los Angeles, CA and then back to Texas in the fall of 1980. After being saved, it has been, and still is, a gradual process of realization/revelation of many experiences that I have had and why. I will try to explain only a few here.
Soon after being born-again in September 1982, I started attending a non-denominational church. After what I had just come out of (totally immersed in new age philosophy stuff galore) this seemed a comfortable fit. At that time the big thing was people getting born-again and deliverance from demons. Sometimes there would be demonstrating spirits and such that would go on. That didn’t really shock me because I felt I understood the spirit realm and after learning about deliverance and praying what the Word of God says in the Bible with the authority of the name of Jesus as given to us in scripture (Matthew 18:18) I felt that things were under control. People seemed to be getting set free and oh what a good thing!
One night trying to sleep was difficult. I tossed and turned, could not get comfortable, and then seemed that I was having a nightmare. I was having trouble breathing, and then felt like that I couldn’t breathe, and then like someone or something was trying to choke me. Meanwhile I was seeing this figure/person. I was jarred awake. I was a single person, living alone in this nice apartment. Was I asleep? No I don’t think so. That was the problem. I couldn’t sleep. But it was a dream, right? Get up out of bed. Turn the lights on. Get a drink of water. I have a memory in my mind of what just happened. I can still remember what the person – or I should say entity – looked like. Finally I calm down and get some sleep. The next day I explain this to a friend at church and tell them what this entity looked like and immediately this person tells me who/what it was – that it was a prince demon and that his name was Anak. So as time goes on I learned about demons and angels. I think that’s it. God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Satan, demons and angels. Aliens? Where do they fit in?Most Christians just refer to them as demons, but they have specific jobs just as Satan’s demons.
There have been a number of times that I would be driving and would hear a buzzing noise (car radio not on at those occasions) Once I realize that this is not from something “normal” I immediately get to praying – binding Satan and his demons, etc. I do not have conscious recall of abductions from those experiences. Was I abducted then, honestly I don’t know. I tend to think not because there was no missing time that I recall. Of course these times were when I was alone in the car and on a lonely stretch of road. Your typical scenario. I think they do that to us on purpose – fear is not a friend.
In an earlier paragraph I had mentioned my Dad to give an idea of some family history. Some UFO researchers feel that abductions are generational. My father died many, many years ago so I have never had any conversations with him regarding his UFO sighting and any other details. I have been told by my older sisters that he talked about UFOs and thought there was something to them. I do not have any proof that he was an abductee. One of my older sisters remembers that she and I and my younger sister have a missing time experience from when we were younger, but I do not have conscious recall of the details of that event.
I do have conscious recall of an abduction attempt – it was stopped. It was in 1996. By this time in my life I am a regular churchgoer, married, two kids, a dog and live in a house. My husband fell asleep on the couch in the living room after late-night reading. I remember trying to sleep, hearing a buzzing noise, and then I am not in the bed but I am not inside a “craft” or in this case a “black helicopter” either (yes folks, for real, that’s what I remember – actually it was a black hawk but at the time I didn’t know that because I had never seen one before) I really don’t know but I guess I was just suspended somewhere in between but close enough or maybe at an opening to this craft because I could see what was flying it and the other one. There were two entities operating this thing and they looked like praying mantis with helmets on. Then there was a human looking entity, whitish grayish hair, whitish grayish appearance of skin color. Communication was what I have heard described as telepathic. You just “know” what is being said to you. Of course, they wanted me to come and I kept refusing saying that I belonged to Jesus and that they could not have me. It was not like there was a statement of faith and OK we’ll let you alone. There was a real struggle back and forth. And somehow I knew that my very soul was at stake. It was frightening. Finally the human looking one shakes his head, as if relenting, and I am let go. I can see this craft go on in the sky and then I see a car going down the cross street from our house and then I am in bed. I get up and turn the light on. I have memory of what just happened and am really disturbed but I’m really tired and fall asleep. The next day was Sunday and I got prayer from my pastor – I did not tell him of this experience but just said that I wanted prayer – that I was disturbed in my spirit. Then I forgot this experience. Didn’t even discuss it with my husband. Didn’t remember it for many years. It came back to me slowly. I don’t know that any of the UFO/abduction researchers have figured out why these experiences are dream like and memory is only partial and comes much later. I know that these entities have power that we humans don’t understand. But they know who God is and, yes, they know who Jesus is and they are not allowed to hurt those who truly belong to him.
After remembering this experience from 1996, I came across a few books regarding abductions. Over the years I have read and heard on talk radio many different types of experiences. Now after realizing that many Christians are dealing with these situations and that this appears to be a “real” phenomenon that humanity is experiencing, I am convinced that it is all a part of the end-time scenario; the aliens will play a part in the deception of all humanity to keep as many as possible from becoming “sons of God” through Jesus as the Bible tells us.
