    I want to share an incident that my daughter and I are still a little taken back by and maybe sharing this story will help us with the questions in our heart.

    Just recently my daughter and I where traveling home from running errands and came across a man in a wheel chair sitting alongside the road.This is a well known man who we have seen many times. On this particular day as we drove by we both got this uneasy feeling and at the same time looked at each other in mid conversation and said "something seems wrong" . I even applied the breaks to slow down and in a split second decided not too. We both discussed this strange feeling that wouldn't go away. I'm still not sure what made me decide to continue driving.

    Later that same day we heard that a man in a wheel chair was found a couple miles down the road laying in the street. He had taken his own life with a gun. When we heard the news we both teared up.

    I don't know if the uneasy feeling we had was protecting us from getting hurt or if we should have acted and tried to help. My daughter and I have been struggling with this for over a month and we are usually the type to help anyone anytime we can.

    What do you think? Please try not to be too harsh with your words.

      I don't know the full circumstances and you can only trust yourself that you did the best thing for yourself. If it had been me and no "alarm bells" were going off in my body then I would have stopped and followed my feeling to at least to stop and ask him if everything was alright. With those "funny feelings" its trial and error in what to do with them. So don't be harsh with yourself.

      It's always better to be sure rather than sorry. If I were you, I'd be glad that the guy hurt himself and not either of you.

    Always go with your gut instinct.  Now I dont know if that gut feeling was telling you to stop or to keep going, only you know that.  Always listen to your gut.

    I think it was time for him to die. Since you normally help people but hesitated in this situation, it tells me that God, a guiding spirit, or your intuition told you to leave it alone. I don't think it was to protect you or your daughter, but to help the man by allowing him to continue on his path and set his soul free. If you would have approached the man it may have broken his resolve, and then what could you have done for him? Would you have been willing to be his significant other, companion, or friend? Would you have had the time to see about his needs? Could you have cured his condition and freed him from his wheelchair? The answer to all of these questions is  "most likely none of the above". It would have made you feel good about being a good samaritan, but once you had continued on your way the man would have been left alone to live with an old misery. I believe you did the right thing, and that this man is now at peace.

    That's a tough one. I'd say the feeling may have meant for you to stop, since you did apply the brakes. But I wouldn't feel guilty, if I were you. I don't know how the feeling moved you other than what you said so you may have been meant to keep going.

    What happened?  You drove into the area of great demonic presences and they were hovering around this man in the wheelchair. This man was being attacked in the spiritual, and you and your daughter felt the demonic presence inside your spirits. It was NOT the man, but what was around him, most likely tormenting him enough to kill himself. Sad really.

    This very weird, unsettling, uneasy, bad feeling is the enemy. He was already there as you drove by. I would believe that you are believers in Yeshua but do not understand the 'enemy' and what he does nor do you understand the authority you have in Christ yet. The Lord is teaching you something and this is why you are still struggling with this. Its Okay. Many people who feel this wickedness move along quickly out of fear of getting hurt. Fear is not of God.

    The next time you feel that 'real strange uneasy feeling' again....Use the word of God and command the enemy to leave in Yeshua's name. They will submit and leave. Then view the situation again. The darkness is getting greater and it will be manifesting stronger down here on earth. You will feel it again, thus knowing what to do when it happens again and you will stand on the authority of Yeshua and walk on the front line. I believe that it was a good thing that you did not stop because if you do not know the enemy, it places a person in a very dangerous position. God allowed you to feel the dark presences...but moved you and your daughter away safely due to your inability to help him at this time. He protected you from this dark presence because he knew that you were spiritually not equipped at this time to help. Don't feel guilty. We all learn. I had a similar situation many years ago of someone killing themselves a street down. I felt really bad that I couldn't help him. God knew that I was not spiritually equipped or knowledgeable of the enemy to go on the front lines at that time, and he kept me away. I may have gotten hurt, the probability was great.

    Learn about the enemy and KNOW the power of God and get spiritually prepared! I wrote a book called "The Apocalyptic Spiritual War" A True Story of Demonic Warfare & Victory, by J. Greenwood and it is free on Kindle unlimited. It will help you to understand the enemy, as I use many examples of true attacks from the enemy. It will make give you much understanding, as well as great faith in God and His power. God bless you.

    You should not feel guilty, but you should realize that your powers of intuition are awakened and can be used to a greater extent in the future through practice.  We all have intuition but the power remains dormant unless activated by practice.
    You could have helped the man. You could have listened to him, tried to give him what he wanted or needed. It is possible you could have directed him to the right place or person. You could have listened to God for an answer if you were more in touch with God. You will get better at this as you tune inward toward love, truth and reality.
    You will never feel right about ignoring your gut reactions and inner perceptions, but this uncomfortable feeling will spur you on to develop your insights and powers for uplifting, saving and restoring. The same as Jesus.

    There is an eastern saying(Buddhist I believe) that
    "Men are like rivers;they begin in the same place,and end in the same place,but each follows his own path".
    We shouldn't take lightly interfering with the path of another because it is not in sync with our own...you did the right thing to continue on...forcing our benevolence on another is not a good deed.

    Killing ourselves is not the will of God. We are to bring heaven to earth. Every dark place is a place to bring in light. Suicide is never the right choice. There are spiritual consequences for this act. (The karma for suicide is being born deformed / somehow disabled in your next life.) It should be avoided at all costs and we CAN help those in such pain. It is not an obligation but a joy and an exercise of spiritual health and strength. It can be seen as an opportunity. But excercising these powers are not common in today's world. They will become more common as humanity advances toward the higher ages.
    PS We are just now coming out of pretty dark ages. Hard to believe, I know. I have heard we are about a century behind where we should be. sad

    PSS Meditation (on God) is the best way to practice / develop intuition. smile

    I'd guess it was no message from God.  He was probably just obviously, or particularly, uncomfortable looking (maybe he had run out of, say, "drink" or cigarettes, a few too many times, hit a saturation point, and - that was it.  (I can't really figure out why he had a gun with him.  I suppose if you're in a wheelchair you may keep one for protection...)./  Or maybe he headed out with the gun and a "tentative plan", thinking he might ask someone for whatever kind of fix he needed; but saturation points can mean running out of the energy to muster up the words to ask yet one more someone one shouldn't really be asking  (or ask a same old "someone" yet one more time).

    BUT,  you can't just  stop and ask strangers if they need help (obviously this guy had a gun with him for one reason or another).    That aside, I'd guess it has more to do with the need for something like a drink or a few cigarettes (and nothing more planned or spiritual or whatever other kind of "spooky-minded thing" someone imagines).
