Yes, I had one. I was literally a different person from one day to the next, from it. My at first bewildered family members followed one by one within 6 weeks as a result of seeing me change overnight. Blessings...

After Jesus put the baptism of the Holy Spirit on my spirit I got frustrated as through Gods baptism I could see and hears demons spirit around in the spirit , and I believed if this was all God had for me I was retreating from Christianity to avoid demon spirits .................THEN Jesus spirit made a profound visit to my life and came with a great force so teach here how to bind a loose demons and fallen angels , and Jesus spirit was throwing these wicked spirit around with a force unseen since , and then Jesus spirit with great force left so I had to pray by what Jesus spirit showed here and the demon spirits were being removed as they came close every time through today .......... See Jesus spirit even though I could not see His intense spirit His voice was there and the power was indeed there , I believe that God makes visits to His ministers when they first gets gifts of His spirit to build faith in these gifts

It took you a whole day to change? I'm kidding.

When I think of Damascus, it is never the story of Paul that comes to mind.
It's called the "Damascus Road experience", not the "Damascus experience."

The Damascus experience will radically change your life as it changed Saul who sought to condemn those not like him. Itís something that needs to be walked out in your own shoe leather, until you reach a point of enlightenment, where you can see the path before you without facilitating the erroneous belief of separation that causes nothing but division and strife.

The only constant is change, if we open our hearts.

many of Christians have had a Damascus road experience. I had one, many of years ago when I was in my early 30's, I was on the Road to speak at a another church during a sundy school night. and while speaking, the Lord Jesus didn't blind me as he did with Saul, but he exposed me as he did Saul. he allowed me to have an out of body experience and I was standing next to the Lord Jesus, there in the church.

while speaking, I, meaning the real me, the spirit, step dackward from my flesh body. I heard myself speaking. and without looking around I knew the Lord Jesus was standing next to me in spirit, on my left side. I never look directly in his derection, and we both never say a word, but what was happening before us both, spoke all that was needed to say.

I was lying in what I was saying at that time on the subject I was speaking on. (in spirit), as soon as I heard myself, (in flesh), I, (in spirit) cried out and said, that's a lie. but no one in the audience heard me in spirit, but in the flesh they was saying things like "amen", "you know you're right" ... ect.... and in spirit I saying that's a lie. it looked like everything I was saying in the flesh was a lie, and the spirit pointed out the lie.

The audience was livid, urging me on in the flesh. but in the spirit I was so hurt seeing me and the audience falling for a lie.

but I realized, they was believing the same lie I was believing in, hence the "Amens" and "you know you're right".

I was so ashamed of myself. I couldn't wait to get back into my body so I could stop lying. my shame was as saul's equivalent of blindness. and when the Lord did allow me to enter back into my body again, I quickly shut down my speech, and made an end to the topic I was speaking on. I went home, and felt empty. and that day was my turning point. I asked God to teach me from now on. and it was painful at first because I was so indoctrinated with what man had taught me.

God was tough on me, but fair, because I was so deeply indoctrinated with what man had taught me. it took a while to get all that mess out of me as with Paul I had to start from stratch, and God build me, not re-built, but built me from the ground up. I had to learn all over again. the Lord Jesus took me, and enrolled me into his School of Higher Learning. and my teacher is the Holy Spirit.

and yes, I'm still learning, as with my brother, the apostle, Paul, I have not yet attain, nor yet perfect, but striving (see Philippians 3:12-14), this is where I AM at... (smile). I will not sit here and say I know everything about God, because I don't. I will only speak what is taught me. that's why I'm not moved on certian topic by men. no, not stubbon, but when truth is not spoken, and a lie is, I just don't like to lie anymore.

that Damascus road experience broke me from lying, (NOT KNOWINGLY).
