This happened some time ago.
I woke up at around 5 in the morning because I wanted to make a regimen using guava leaves. I was home in Kabwe town where my parents live.
The time was around 5:30 in the morning and it was still kind of dark,but there was some light.
So I went to the guava tree to pluck leaves for the regimen I wanted to make.
I started plucking the leaves and as I was plucking, I could even hear someone in the road outside our house walking and singing,going somewhere.
Everything seemed normal.
Then when I put my hand out to pluck some more leaves from the tree, I noticed staring at me in the semi-light a grey and white cobra snake!
Its long body was wrapped around one of the tree branches.
I froze from shock because that was unexpected. My hand was still stretched out to pluck the leaves,and my body just froze in shock. I couldn’t stretch my hand back or run because my brain was
still processing the situation.
I stared eye to eye with the cobra in shock.
In a split second, it stretched its neck and bit the thumb of my outstretched arm!
I screamed, throwing the guava leaves to the ground.
Immediately, the snake got down from the tree and started sliding itself towards our house. Our house is grey and the snake was grey,with white lines on either side. It was moving against the wall so that it can be camouflaged. It was a fully grown snake and the longest I’ve ever seen!
I remained there at the tree in shock, not knowing whether I was going to die or not. I started crying, “Lord help me! Help me please!” Suddenly, a vision of a brown coffin suspended in midair flashed before my eyes. Was I going to die? Why was I seeing this coffin? I was trying to hold my thumb so that the venom does not spread to the rest of the body,but its hard to do that on a thumb.
I could feel the toxins starting to work in my body because I started to feel weak and I started feeling like my knees couldn’t hold my legs.
I ran to the house shouting, “A snake! I’ve been bitten by a snake!”
Then I ran to my younger brother’s bedroom shouting, “Wake up! Wake up! I’m dying! I’ve been bitten by a snake!” I was waking him up to say goodbye.
My elder brother had heard me shouting, and he got a shovel to go and kill the snake. By this time,the snake was in front of the living room door.
When my brother tried to hit it with the shovel,it raised itself on its tail in defiance,trying to stand face to face with him. However, he finally managed to smash its head.
Everyone in the house quickly started organising for a taxi,so that I can be taken to the hospital.
I got into the taxi with Rachael and my Mum and we told the driver that we were going to the hospital.
He started driving, and as we were going,I could even see that the sun was just starting to come out. It was early morning, a beautiful day. I could even see people, especially househelps because they are the ones who go for work that early in the morning. I could see them moving in the road and I started thinking to myself, ‘So I will not see this day ending? I wish I was one of those people waking in the road so that I don’t have to die and get to see the end of the day.’
As we were going,the driver suddenly started driving very very slow,and eventually pulled off the road and stopped.
By now I was seeing everything around me as though through a white mist. I was perspiring due to the venom,and I could hear my heart beating fast in my ears. Tears had filled my eyes and I was breathing heavily and in total despair.
Then my sister saw that the driver was a demon in human disguise and she saw that he had stopped so that I can die. He wanted it to be too late by the time they reached me to the hospital.
So my sister told him,” When we go back home,we’re going to burn you with fire from Heaven! We’re going to pray against you and render your mission on this earth useless as a punishment for what you are doing. Take us to the hospital now! ”
The ‘man’ started laughing, ” hahahahahahaha! Its OK. When you go home,do whatever you want. As long as she’s dead,then I don’t care what you do to me because we would have succeeded in removing your sister from this earth hahahahaha!”
We were all in shock because he wasn’t even trying to hide that he was a demon. He was talking so openly about it because he was excited that they were about to kill me. Under normal circumstances, demons never admit that they are demons even when they know that God has revealed who they really are. They always pretend to be human,hoping to deceive your human mind into doubting what God told you.
However for this one, excitement had gotten the better of him. (For reference on demons in human disguise, please read previous posts on the same which are on my timeline).
Then he got back on the road, but driving at a very slow pace. We didn’t want to get out and start waiting for another taxi because we didn’t know how long it would take before another one came by.
When we reached the hospital, I quickly got out and couldn’t wait for anyone to take me out. I was dying and in a rush to get to a doctor. I couldn’t walk straight by now, and was almost crawling. The only thing I could see through my faint vision was people’s shoes at the hospital as they were moving to and fro.
I started throwing up thick stringy saliva like things that I thought should be snake venom. My body felt poisoned.
I didn’t even care about what anyone would think of me when they saw me crying, throwing up and crawling, as I was desperate to live.
I reached a room where I saw two nurses by the door. The normal procedure is that you register your name and wait for your turn when your name is called out. However, I bypassed all procedures and didn’t even register my name. I crawled past the nurses, straight into the doctor’s office and slumped my hand on his table for support, “Doctor, I’ve been bitten by a snake!”
I was surprised to wake up screaming! It had been a dream. What?! I was so shocked. Everything had seemed so REAL!
I started to process the dream and then I realised that God was warning me that Satan plans on attacking me with a snake and so I should pray against it. Satan is angry that we are spreading messages of holiness and that people are getting saved,so he wants to remove us from this earth, to hinder us from telling the world about God’s holiness and about salvation.
It was really scary, and I was very glad that it had all been a dream!
Then about two weeks later, I went to the outskirts of town with Rachael and one of my other elder brothers because we wanted to buy a goat. My brother was driving and I was in the front seat with him. Rachael was sitting behind.
We had moved around for a while looking for any place we could buy a goat but had been unsuccessful. We saw a house, and my brother and I got off to go and ask the people at the house we had spotted,if they had any goats for sale.
I opened the car door and put my foot down to step out of the car. In front of where I had put my foot, was a snake! I screamed and the snake slithered into the brown grass and we could see the grass moving as it slithered along!
I couldn’t believe it. Was my snake dream about to materialise?
Then I realised that God was showing me how serious Satan was with the planned snake attack and that I should pray against it more.
A few days after that,I saw a vision about that incident, that Satan had planned for that snake to bite me as soon as I stepped out of the car,but in the vision, I saw two Angels standing between me and the snake! That’s why Satan’s plans had failed and it did not bite me.
I had prayed against any snake attack after that dream, and God had answered my prayers by sending His Angels to prevent the snake I encountered at that time from biting me.
In the physical, I did not know why it did not bite me. I thought it just got scared off when I screamed and slithered away, not knowing it had been hindered from biting me because of two Angels standing in between! The Lord is good He answers prayers! It brings tears to my eyes just thinking of this. However,the Lord warned me that Satan has still planned many other snake attacks, and that I should continue praying against such an attack.
Satan is really angry about people getting saved,because he wants to get ALL humanity to hell. He hates it when people repent and he tries his VERY BEST to try and make them backslide. He hates it when people warn others about Hell and he tries to kill them, so that they should not warn others anymore.
This should show us how serious the journey to Heaven and Hell is. Hell is a place no human words can describe,and we should not go there. Satan is EXTREMELY DESPERATE to get people there.
We should always ask the Holy Spirit to help us overcome.
If one wants the Baptism of the Holy Spirit,all you have to do is ask in prayer. He is our Guide on our journey to Heaven and He always leads us back into the correct path once we stray.
