My Experience With The Angel Of Death


When I was a child I was hospitalized with Anorexia Nervosa. I've been in a depressed state again recently, and have even mentioned to family members that I'd be better off dead. A few nights ago, while I was sleeping, I was extremely aware that I was dreaming. There was this middle aged man with me. I said to him "Wow I know I'm dreaming but I can say whatever I feel and I have total control of my dream." The man said "It takes practice." After I asked if he was my spirit Guide and He replied "No." Then my voice started to fade as if I was beginning to wake up but I asked him "Who are you then." The man said in a serious voice "The Angel Of Death." I was so frightened that I thought it was my time to go. I began to regret all the times I said I wish I were dead. He also warned me about my health. Soon as I awakened I remembered every detail of my out of body experience.

My godmother who is a spiritual adviser told me God sent him as a message and warning if I slip back to my old ways I won't be as lucky this time. I have heard stories about the Angel of death being confused with the Grim Reaper. In my opinion the Angel of death works for God as mentioned in the Bible. A very close friend of mines told me she woke up one night to see a tall figure wearing a black robe with red eyes grinning at her near her bed. That is what a Grim Reaper would look like. Who I saw and had a conversation with was a messenger from God in my opinion. I now realize that I don't want to die anymore and I shouldn't be so vain. I should appreciate life because it can end at anytime in an instant. After reading this story some people will believe my experience and some will laugh with disbelief. Only I know the truth for sure you can say. The experience I had is one that I'll always remember. And it was indeed a spiritual awakening.

two years ago I was diagnosed with depression. Last year I overdosed and my heart stopped beating 5 times, every time my heart stopped beating I just saw a man in a black robe, my grandmother said it was the angel of death coming to tell me that Jesus will be giving me another chance in life. I've changed my approach towards life ever since then and have been devoted to living a healthy and religious life.

Hey you just taught me a distinction I wasn't aware of

Angel of Death and grim reaper are two different concepts

For your sake I would go with the warning interpretation

Specifically the warning about being too hard on yourself

You haven't done anything that warrants punishment especially not the horrible way that starving yourself implies

Seriously go have a nice bit of chocolate and smile because you have survived dear

How strong are you! Go have fun! You've earned it

I was depressed and I thought God couldn't help me. It was during the day. I looked ahead of me. I was laying at the end of my bed. I saw a black robe that was crinkled. It just seemed to sway like the wind was blowing. I was too afraid to look up to see what its top half looked like. I smiled and tried to act like I could see through it. I was so afraid and then I thought to myself: God? At that moment it walked away. It was gone. I don't like being alone and I don't like my bedroom any more. I just pray most of the time.

Fear? I have met this being under circumstances best not spoken of lest someone repeat them. Fear? What fear doth thou have of that which is not God? None.

You shouldn't want to leave this world unless you are confident that you are ready for the afterlife. The description of the angel of death seems accurate and your grandmother could be right that he was trying to warn you that your time of death could be near or you just seeing a dream that satan is making you visualise. Never the less, you shouldn't tell people your nightmares and tell them to only those nearest to you and your confident those people want the best for you.

Hope your doing well Caroline, may god be with you.

I saw him as well... After I woke up my life change. My spiritual life and physical life started to change in a spontaneous way... But until now I am still overwhelmed and adjusting in my new life... Just a few weeks ago when it happened.

The last year my mother was alive, she had been living with us for the past 15 years. One day I came home from work, I walked into the house and it the atmosphere felt completely different. The house felt dark and depressing whether it was day or night. I felt "something" was in our house. I instinctively knew what it was--it was death and it had come for my mother. One night, my husband and I were in the kitchen talking about my mother's declining health. He stopped in mid-sentence and said he saw a shadow. He followed it and it ran down the hall to my mother's room. The next morning, we found she had passed.

There appears to be a direct connection with the state of mind during an NDE or OBE and the experience itself. There are many reports of people living in fear or severely depressed having dark or negative experiences in the lower levels of consciousness. However, all is not lost you can change your mind and move into the light. See the story of Pastor Howard Storm.
In an altered state of consciousness you create your reality instantly so be careful what you are thinking and make sure you have a positive attitude.

ZiShu, it could have been Gabriel. My mother saw Michael, and she said he was as tall as a lamp post and as beautiful as any man she ever saw.
My granny (long dead) saw the devil like he looked when he was an angel. She said he had curly black hair and beautiful blue eyes. I can imagine that he was the most beautiful of them all.

Did this man have black hair?
I think you may of seen Gabriel. He is the Angel of Death and God's direct messenger.
Was he really tall by any chance? I think he may of took a human form for you.

I believe your testimony 100%. You saw an angel who works for God and your godmother was totally correct = it was a spiritual "wake up" call for you.

Your friend saw a demonic being but you saw an angel who was sent by God as a warning for you- and he was sent because God loves you and there is much for you to still do for Him on this earth yet.
