Greater is He who is in us then he who is in the world. I have to keep reminding myself this. Jeremy recently started a new job. It is a great opp for us being that he is making about ten thousand more a year. We have been significantly blessed!
He is training with an ex coworker, who is now a current co worker....yes this guy left the old company and went to the new one and my husband did the same thing. But anyhow, this job gives a blackberry telephone, laptop, voice over IP telephone, company vehicle eventually, pays for our internet, is buying us a new printer, a company credit card and we get to travel with him when he goes away as long as we pay for me and the kids. The best part of the job is that once he is trained in, his office is at home. He will have to go in and service some of the areas, but for the most part things are done from home. In the mean time he is working at this guy's house training side by side. Here is where we need the constant prayer....
Al is the guy that Jer works with and Al just recently got married and so his wife and brother in law are all living with him. They have been for some time now. Al knows the truth about Christ and a long time ago he made a confession of Christ, but has since backslidden. He was telling Jeremy that recently Al was speaking wtih Dan about God and Dan said that he had a place reserved for him in hell. Jeremy asked why Dan would say something like that, if it was serious or in jest. Well, Dan who is a 350 pound man and very tall is scared to sleep in his bedroom!!!! He is scared because there is something in there. He has woken up on a couple of occasions to have something he cannot see holding him down. Al said that he would not believe it if he himself has not experianced it.
While I try not to be scared i am a little creeped out. I am going to start to pray for protection while he is there, and then he is praying a cleansing prayer as he gets into the car to leave Al's house. If some of you could hold Jeremy up in prayer I would really appreciate it.
ETA: After responding to this initially, I remembered seeing a daytime talk show cover a similar situation that several people were experiencing. Some thought they'd been abducted, others thought they were possessed, etc. So the show set up cameras in their rooms and then had the videos evaluated by physicians. Turns out that the people were all experiencing a sleep disorder called Sleep Paralysis. Basically, it's a form of narcolepsy where just as the person goes to sleep or just as they wake, they can't make voluntary movement of torso and/or limbs, like someone's holding them down, and have visions (dreams basically) at the same time.
Here are some more links (link above is from Stanford University). Maybe Jer could share some of this info with his co-worker.
The first thing I thought of based on your description of him is a health issue. Heart condition, sleep apnea, sleep paralysis, anxiety attacks etc... This man should really see a good Dr. to rule out a medical condition. Anxiety attacks can be extremely scary.
