The Testimony of Arn

     How asking Jesus Christ into my life prevented a possible impending abduction from occurring and stopped fear, the night of February the third, 1981.
--Testimony of Arn (Dragomir), dictated January 9th 2010.

    Personal background: I was raised by secular parents, both of whom called themselves agnostics.  The thinking was scientific humanist, my parents, brother and sister and I were all evolutionists, my father especially.  After college, government work, and some time in graduate school, I had some personal difficulties, which caused me a lot of psychic pain.  The suffering and troubles that ensued did not themselves lead me to believe in God and still less in Christ.  My life bore out the truth that those who come to God must in some degree, believe that He is and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him, and I actively disbelieved both at the time, among other things being yet under the spell of evolution.  My progression through those years of generally lessening turmoil and suffering was first to come to believe in a psychic and spiritual world to which men had some kind of connection, then to a deity in some sense in influence or control of the world, (close to gnosticism), and, soon thereafter, seeing, through Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago, that there had to be a good God to restrain the evil in man that was perceivable there, in a good God.  In about the August of 1980, I began to attend a Bible study, knowing that I needed God's mercy and forgiveness, but neither accepting Christ as other than a good man, nor understanding the Bible, just believing it was a book of much wisdom.  At that time I was extensively studying the UFO phenomena, including some deep things about supposed encounters with space creatures of a seemingly angelic form, which had seemed likely real, rather than a phantasm, and had made me wonder what they were, and if they were good.  On February 3rd 1981, I was half awake on my bed, having just had a temptation dream involving power, and I began hearing a sound I can only describe as a sort of unearthly trumpet sound which sent chills of fear -- almost like electric shock -- up one side of my body and down the other, waking me up fully.  As they continued, I besought God for help, fearing that I would somehow be taken away by the force or entity behind the sound, but I could not reach Him, He was too high for me.  At the seventh trumpet sound, (a few minutes), growing ever more afraid, and having nothing else I could really do, I asked Christ to come into my life and protect me.  It seemed like a little ghost came from heaven and into me; (not like very much compared to the fear), but  the unearthly trumpet ceased to sound, the fear departed, and things calmed, so I was able to sleep.  The next day I wondered, "Oh no, what have I done," but I did not recant, and very soon, began to be able to understand the Bible, which before had put me to sleep when I began to read it. 
    I have shared  this testimony only a couple of times before, and it was only a few years ago that I realized that some people probably have abduction experiences because they do not call on Jesus Christ in situations like that.  Mostly I had seen it, as the Lord's way of getting my attention, not as a prototype situation, or that I had at that time opened up a door -- the sort millions of people go through, under the demonic attack of an encounter with the supernatural.  Indeed, I had looked for natural explanations of abduction experiences, such as provided in Martin Cannon's book, The Controllers, and, of UFO's, Renato Vesco's ManMade UFO's, 50 years of suppression.  I would have had it to be eighty percent natural, 20 percent supernatural; now I would reverse those percentages somewhat.

    Only in the last three weeks did I come across the current Christian response to UFO's and abductions, when looking at a list of creationist videos, which included one on UFOs, which, when I viewed it, referred to Michael Heiser as an authority on the subject.  So I looked him up on the Internet, and listened to his material on Genesis 6, the sons of God, and the Giants.  I had rejected the supernatural explanation of Genesis 6, because New Age folk had put forward a spaceman theory, and when I had heard the fallen angels view, it seemed to be one of denying or lessening man's responsibility.  But Michael Heiser's presentation was credible, and ties together several loose teachings of the Scripture, at least not lessening man's responsibility, and opens up issues of the supernatural which are important and for many, are quite important, and almost totally are without discussion in commercial and seminary Christianity. On listening to you, Joseph Jordan, and testimonies of protection through the name of Jesus that you made available, I thought it might be of help to add my own.  
    There is a lot of "watcher doctrine" and "giantistic ideological practice" out there, but God is good, and He loves you.
