Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Witnesses – Thomas Hennell
During this time my Adversary was seated again, close before the door. He looked up at what was happening, and though no longer regarding him directly, I was partly aware of his appearance now.
It was supernatural, no longer like Apollo, Moses or Jove; he looked up and I was aware of the extraordinary quality of his eyes, of the rich colour of his mouth, now no longer smiling. His hair seems to have become flame like and standing up. There was something more ancient in this aspect than Israel, Greece, Egypt, perhaps Assyria, yet divine in all these ages, and of them; to which the word ‘magical’ does not seem irreverent
