SLEEP PARALYSIS is not a new phenomenon as some want to make it appear and I want to start by giving some personal testimonies of my encounters.
Ada Palm 2003
While serving as a missionary at Ada Palm; Ada Palm is a government owned palm plantation in Ohaji Area in Imo State, Nigeria. This community was so notorious that there was no record of a minister of the gospel that went there and left with his marriage intact because of the high level of seduction through diabolic means. I met many holiness pastors living with more than one wife. The level of illiteracy was alarmingly high that you can see 18 years girl still in primary two.
God used me to do great things and I was setting many lives free from satanic bondage and in one year we baptized close to one hundred converts. Those people that were coming to the Lord used to serve Queen of the Coast or the Python spirit which was popularly worshiped among the people. More than once they sent snakes to my church but I killed them. Seductresses failed woefully to pull me down.
So one night I was lying down and noticed what I know now as SLEEP PARALYSIS, a glorious feminine figure appeared in my room and was trying to walk around me. The Holy Spirit in me was blocking her from doing that. I noticed that even though I was not able to talk that the force inside me was fighting back and obstructing her movement. As the struggle continued I was able to sit up and commanded her to get out of my room. That was how she left
Coming to Port Harcourt 2005
My family moved over to Port Harcourt in 2005 and a founding pastor of a church gave us a self-content room; I was with Joy and my two kids then.
A pastor who had been “helped” by the same pastor sent message to us, warning that he lost his manhood in the same house when the same pastor offered to “help” him. That was another place that God manifested His great power.
We noticed that the said pastor was not genuine and there were witches and wizards that were trying to attack my family. One night Joy and I went into prayer and dealt with a satanic cat that was always coming around to see if we were asleep. Fortunately, we had trained ourselves to be awake at midnight. That night we directed prayers at that cat and it gave a wild shriek and that was the last time we saw it. We discovered that the pastor who was abused was not strong spiritually, so they messed him up. It was not that the forces of darkness were too strong but because he was weak in the spirit.
Brother J and fairly used bed-sheath
This brother went to the market and bought a beautiful fairly used bed sheath but from that day the family began to notice that something was pressing them while sleeping. They decided to burn the bed sheath after prayers and that was the end of the attack.
Living in a shrine
The present location of Door of Hope Christian Center, (where I have my office and living place) was a shrine. There was a pastor who used the place before I came. The day this pastor came around to see me in that place, he screamed and asked me what I was doing in that location. He narrated how his wife was once given a knock by an invisible person and she has been sick ever since. That was how we learnt that it was the sight of an ancient shrine. His ministry lost momentum and folded up from that site.
One night a spirit dwarf appeared to me to attack me but in the name of the Lord I dealt with it. We have totally conquered the place and that is the place from where we are reaching the whole world today.
Breaking demonic stronghold over a territory
Like we mentioned through our study, there are times when we discover that evil spirits are claiming ownership over a particular location which turns out to be where we live or have some vested interest. What I mean is that it is not a kind of place you can just walk away. This is the way the bible described the location of a church and the subsequent death of the pastor -
I know where you live — where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city — where Satan lives Rev 2:13NIV
That was the situation in my center and it is often a fierce battle if you don’t know how to handle it. Occupants of such places often suffer SLEEP PARALYSIS and in some cases people could lose their lives. These spirits did more than attacking us through SLEEP PARALYSIS; we saw innocent but ignorant neighbors ganging up against us to push us out. Some of them later came to confess all the hidden things they did to force us out under the influence of evil spirits.
The first thing to consider is if you have a legal right to occupy that place. If you are just a tenant, I will suggest that you leave the place unless the one who rented the place to you is a Christian who is interested to dislodge the evil spirits. Otherwise you will waste precious time in directionless warfare. But while you are there, you can still take authority over the place in the name of Jesus Christ.
If it is your birth inheritance like what we said about a sister earlier, then you must bring in a deliverance minister who understands the principles of covenant breaking and land liberation. This kind of thing can happen when the children of occult parents refuse to bow to worship satan.
My books, CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED TO THE FAMILY TREE and COVENANTS: HOW THEY AFFECT PEOPLE, can help you here.

Solution to SLEEP PARALYSIS?
1 If you are not sure of how to handle this, reach out to a more spiritually mature person immediately for prayers and assistance
2 Pray immediately and cancel whatever they have done to you or with your body. Pray this prayer in faith and cover yourself with the blood of Jesus Christ. This will lead us to another very important factor.
3 For those who are not yet born again Christians, give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ because He is the only one that has all the power to overcome all the powers of satan. Like we said earlier, it will not do you any good to go to medium, mystics or witchdoctors who are merely going to arrange covenant terms with evil spirits and agents of satan on your behalf. Their solution cannot be permanent
4 Go ahead and establish yourself as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ by getting baptized by immersion, being filled with the Holy spirit, joining a local church assembly and living a prayerful life. Your personal spiritual development is the only lasting solution to SLEEP PARALYSIS
5 Don’t go to bed angry or worried. These will only serve to open doors for satan and his demons to afflict even Christians. Angry and depressed people form the group of Christians who have SLEEP PARALYSIS once in a while
6 Don’t keep hurtful atmosphere in your home; Holy Spirit and demons respond to the environment that suit them. Hurtful environment will open doors to demons and witches and wizards. Hurtful atmosphere result from members of the home keeping malice, using curse words at each other, nagging and complaining
7 Keep off horror and violent movies; they open doors to demons. Wall papers with mysterious images can bring in demon spirits who come to make their presence known through oppressing people in that house. Be careful with artifacts and cloths with strange images because any object that have been used in worship carries the presence of the spirit of that altar. Some people we have counseled who have SLEEP PARALYSIS got their freedom when they removed the strange object from their home. Your eyes and ears are doors to your soul. Every movie has a spirit behind it and you welcome the spirits as you watch them. Rather seek out good Christian movies and occupy yourself with them.
8 Pray every night before you sleep and remember to cover yourself and family with the Blood of Jesus Christ. Of course, you already know that this is for Christians who are obeying the rest of the other instructions.
9 Go for deliverance if there are covenant issues in your life; issues like spirit spouse, past involvement in occult or household spirits trying to force you to go back and worship them as priest or whatever
10 Read your bible, good Christian literature and listen to good Christian music that will help you grow spiritually.
11 Fill out a Deliverance questioner to find out possible open doors to those demons that oppress you
12 Pray in the Spirit often and command the peace and presence of God around
your home. Remember to ask for infilling of the Holy Spirit as often as possible. It brings a holy atmosphere around you that demon spirits are not compatible with.

Of late there is a concern on what is now known as SLEEP PARALYSIS and some who claim to be sleep experts have tried to explain it away by intellectual reasoning. I was impressed when some of those experts acknowledged that they don’t have the right answer yet. But as is the habit with scientists they still say something about what they don’t understand and people still accept such as authority.
SLEEP PARALYSIS is not a new phenomenon and we have such experience expressed in the bible. My intention is to give a Christian bible position on the subject.
"A word was secretly brought to me, my ears caught a whisper of it. Amid disquieting dreams in the night, when deep sleep falls on men, fear and trembling seized me and made all my bones shake. A spirit glided past my face, and the hair on my body stood on end. It stopped, but I could not tell what it was. A form stood before my eyes, and I heard a hushed voice: Job 4:12-16NIV
This scripture is an example of what worldly scientists or “sleep experts” call SLEEP PARALYSIS.
Take note what time this happened to a friend of Job
Three friends of Job heard that their friend was sick but what they saw beat their wildest imagination; they could not have imagined that a man could go through what Job went through and remained alive. Besides that he had lost his children and business, there were sores all over his body and he was scratching his body with some hard objects because of the itching. Then think of the stench coming from the sore. They were loss of words and so could not console their friend. In fact, it took Job to break the three days silence.
It was within this period that one of them had the experience described above.
Even though this happened when people are supposed to be sleeping and having dreams, Eliphaz was not sleeping but had this experience in between other dreams.
Note that a spirit glided past his face and he heard a voice who said something very specific. Even though the speaker did not specifically mention Job’s name but Eliphaz could decode that it was talking about his sick friend.
The voice accused Job and condemned him for claiming that he was innocent and lived upright life. The voice also accused God for being too high handed that even His angels were not able to please Him. Both statements were false and we can see that from the account of the same book of Job
Then the Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil." "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied. "Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face." Job 1:8-11NIV
Here God calls Job an upright man proving that God is not a highhanded fault finder; He recognized that Job was living upright life. So we can see that what that spirit said was not true about God. We also learned from the book of Job that he did not stop serving God after all he went through. The spirit was actually the fault finder.
We don’t need to go far to know the identity of that spirit; it is the same spirit that asked God for permission to afflict Job and he was responsible for all the calamities that came upon Job. That was the devil.
Reading comments on SLEEP PARALYSIS from the internet, most of the commentators refused to attribute spiritual connotation to it but claim that it is as a result of stress or sleeping position. Almost all the commentators acknowledged that those who were having SLEEP PARALYSIS saw the kind of images Eliphaz was reported to have seen in our main text and in most cases heard some voices. Not a few of the social commentators agree that the victim could feel somebody or something pressing them down and that the victim will be conscious of the presence and pressure he is going through. Yet, all of them refuse to accept the principle that this is actually one of the ways that satan and his demons afflict people.
We cannot blame them for this failure because science does not deal with spirits but facts and there is no means to detect spirit activities with scientific apparatus. Yet, all the evidences they acknowledge to be associated to SLEEP PARAYSIS are clear indications of demonic and witchcraft oppression as we know it
What are the signs of SLEEP PARALYSIS?
Pressing while one is lying half-awake
Seeing strange presence in the room one is sleeping
Hearing strange voices
Random heart-beat as a result of fear
Fear to sleep because of anticipated attack from evil spirits
Inability to move one’s body at the time of the attack
Can someone die as a result of SLEEP PARALYSIS?
Scientist says, “NO!” and that shows their narrow understanding of what death is. How can they say that no one has died from SLEEP PARALYSIS as if they have a way to hear from those who have died and know what experience they went through before their death? Anything that can suffocate somebody can kill. Demons can torture people to death.
SLEEP PARALYSIS is a spiritual attack
From the account we saw with Eliphaz we can safely conclude that it is an attack from satan and his demons. All the signs that have been presented by sleep experts are all signs of demonic harassment
A spirit glided past my face, and the hair on my body stood on end
Witches and wizards also press people to instill fear or in the process of wanting to sock their blood. There are victims who wake up to see marks lacerating their bodies.
How does it occur?
The victim will lie paralyzed not able to move his body, yet he will be consciously aware of his environment. He will not be able to move his body and in most cases he will be aware of spirit personalities and voices in the room. He will be able to tell all that happened at the time of the attack
A man told me how he was lying paralyzed as he observed his girlfriend showing signs that she was having sex with an invisible person on the same bed. In another instance the spirit will carry the man from the bed to the floor.
We have instances when the spirits was making threats as the victim lay paralyzed on his bed.
All the accounts from social commentators I read from the internet acknowledged all these, yet they insist that it is not a spiritual problem.
How often does it occur?
Some people have it less frequently than others. People who are spiritually strong have it less often than others.
Those who suffer from spirit husband or wife challenges and other forms of spiritual attacks have it more often.
Those who are suffering from occult and generational covenant related have it more often as the spirits from those kingdoms try to put them under pressure to do something
Things you must do
Don’t entertain fear because fear is the power of satan to control your life. Fear can also make you yield to them and in some cases, some people have committed suicide
Don’t go to witchdoctors or mystic shops for solution. They are all agents of satan.
Don’t run away from your home because there is no distance in the spirit.
Don’t obey the voice or instruction given to you by that spirit because it is the devil’s instruction. Job’s friends did not know this and began to accuse him based on the false charges of satan. They may ask you to leave your husband immediately or they will kill you or to go to a particular place if you want to be free. Don’t obey them.
What is the solution to SLEEP PARALYSIS?
If you are not sure of how to handle this, reach out to a more mature person immediately for prayers and assistance
Pray immediately and cancel whatever they have done to you or with your body. Pray this prayer in faith and cover yourself with the blood of Jesus Christ
For those who are not yet born again Christians, give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ because He is the only one that has all the power to overcome all the powers of satan
Go ahead and establish yourself as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ by getting baptized by immersion, being filled with the Holy spirit, joining a local church assembly and living a prayerful life
Don’t go to bed angry or worried. These open doors for satan and his demons to afflict even Christians. Angry and depressed people form the group of Christians who have SLEEP PARALYSIS once in a while
Don’t keep hurtful atmosphere in your home; Holy Spirit and demons respond to the environment that suit them. Hurtful environment will open doors to demons and witches and wizards. Hurtful atmosphere result from members of the home keeping malice, using curse words at each other, nagging and complaining
Keep off horror and violent movies; they open doors to demons. Your eyes and ears are doors to your soul. Every movie has a spirit behind it and you welcome the spirits as you watch them. Rather seek out good Christian movies and occupy yourself with them.
Pray every night before you sleep and remember to cover yourself and family with the Blood of Jesus Christ
Go for deliverance if there are covenant issues in your life; issues like spirit spouse, past involvement in occult or household spirits trying to force you to go back and worship them as priest or whatever
Read your bible, good Christian literature and listen to good Christian music that will help you grow spiritually.
Fill out a Deliverance questioner to find out possible open doors to those demons that oppress you
Remember to ask for infilling of the Holy Spirit as often as possible. It brings a holy atmosphere around you that demon spirits are not compatible with.
SLEEP PARALYSIS is a spiritual problem and there is no way it can be explained intellectually. It is symptom of a serious spiritual problem in the life of the victim.
However, it is not a hopeless situation as some sleep experts suggest. Victims can resolve the problem if they follow the right processes as outlined in this article
