Tim Thompson: Dabbling in The Occult

After his brother died in a drowning accident, Tim dabbled in the occult as he desperately wanted to contact his brother beyond the grave. Read Transcript


I HEARD A POP, AND I

HEARD A CRACK OF THE ICE

BREAK.

AND THEN THAT'S WHEN IT

HAPPENED.

IMMEDIATELY, I WAS

SUBMERGED.

THE LAST THING I REALLY

REMEMBER IS MY BROTHER RAN

OVER TO ME, GROOB GRABBED

ME, AND THREW ME UP ON THE

ICE.

Reporter: TIM THOMPSON

WAS ONLY FIVE YEARS OLD WHEN

HE FELL THROUGH THE ICE.

HIS BROTHER, PAUL, PULLED

HIM TO SAFETY, BUT THEN HE

FELL IN AND DROWNED IN THE

FRIGID WATER.

PROBABLY ABOUT A WEEK TO

TWO WEEKS AFTER MY BROTHER'S

FUNERAL, I LAID DOWN ON THE

FLOOR IN MY CLOSET AND I PUT

A BLANKET UP TO MY CHEST AND

I WAS PRETENDING TO LAY IN A

COFFIN TALKING TO MY

BROTHER.

Reporter: TIM HID IN

HIS MAKESHIFT COFFIN DAY

AFTER DAY.

AS DAYS TURNED INTO MONTHS,

DEMONS STARTED VISITING

HIM.

I DIDN'T CALL THEM

DEMONS, BECAUSE I DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT THOSE WORDS WERE,

BECAUSE THEY WERE MY

FRIENDS.

TIM'S FRIENDS MADE HIM AN

OFFER.

MY FRIENDS SAID, WILL YOU

LET US COME INSIDE YOU, AND

WE WILL SHOW YOU GREATER

THINGS.

AND SO WHEN I SAID YES, THAT

MOMENT I COULD TELL I WAS

NOT THE SAME PERSON.

I COULD SPEAK SOMETHING OUT

OF MY MOUTH, LIKE, SAY, FOR

INSTANCE, IF A SIBLING WAS

MEAN TO ME, OR IF SOMEBODY

DID SOMETHING TO ME, I COULD

LITERALLY ASK ONE OF MY

FRIENDS TO TRIP THEM.

TO HAVE THEM BE CUT, OR TO

GET HURT.

WELL, LITTLE BY LITTLE, COME

TO FIND OUT THIS POWER THAT

I WAS SPEAKING OVER PEOPLE'S

LIVES WAS GROWING.

Reporter: WHEN TIM WAS

10 YEARS OLD, HE HAD DEMONIC

VISIONS.

MY FATHER WAS YELLING AT

ME, AND WE GOT INTO AN

ARGUMENT, AND I SAW MYSELF

PICK UP AN AXE AND DRIVE IT

INTO HIS SKULL.

AND I SAW HIS HEAD BE SPLIT

OPEN.

AND I SAW THE BLOOD AND I

SAW EVERYTHING ELSE.

I LITERALLY SAW THIS.

AND THAT'S WHEN I STARTED TO

REALIZE, I'M NOT LIKE OTHER

PEOPLE.

Reporter: AS A

TEENAGER, TIM DEALT DEEPER

INTO THE OCCULT.

HE USED TAROT CARDS AND

OUIJA BOARDS TO COMMUNICATE

WITH DEMONS.

MANY OF HIS DEMON FRIENDS

HAD NAMES, SUCH AS ROCH.

WHEN ROCH SPOKE, ALL OF

THE DEMONS SHOOK BECAUSE

THEY ALL KNEW HE HAD

ENORMOUS POWER.

I KNEW HE HAD ENORMOUS

POWER.

Reporter: TIM ALSO

BEGAN TO ABUSE ALL KINDS OF

DRUGS.

I LITERALLY DOVE RIGHT

INTO METH, AND FROM METH, I

GOT INTO COCAINE.

Reporter: NEITHER DRUGS

NOR THE OCCULT COULD FILL

THE VOID IN TIM'S LIFE.

HE TRIED TO KILL HIMSELF BY

CUTTING HIS WRISTS.

SUDDENLY BLOOD WENT

WHOOSH.

I LITERALLY FELT THAT I'M

PAYING GOD BACK.

I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED, BUT I ENDED UP IN

AN EMERGENCY ROOM, AND A

DOCTOR SAID YOU WERE ONE

MINUTE AWAY FROM BLEEDING TO

DEATH.

Reporter: TIM HAD

DECIDED IF THERE WAS NOTHING

BETTER IN LIFE, HE WOULD

RATHER DIE.

THAT'S WHEN HE CALLED OUT TO

GOD.

CLOSE TO MIDNIGHT ON

DECEMBER 13th, I GOT DOWN

ON MY HANDS AND KNEES, AND I

SAID, GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL,

THEN YOU SHOW ME SOME SORT

OF HAPPINESS OR KILL ME.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE ONE

MORE DAY LIKE THIS.

THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED.

JESUS CAME THROUGH MY

CEILING.

HE CAME THROUGH MY CEILING.

THE WHOLE ROOM LIT UP AND

EMBRACED ME.

WHEN HE EMBRACED ME, HE LET

ME KNOW HE FOUND VALUE IN ME

AND HE LOVED ME.

Reporter: TIM ASKED

JESUS TO COME INTO HIS

HEART.

FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME,

ANGRY, FEAR, DEPRESSION,

SUICIDAL, HOMICIDAL, HATING

EVERYTHING AND HATING LIFE

WAS GONE.

I DIDN'T HAVE A TASTE OF

HOPE.

I HAD A TIDALWAVE OF HOPE.

I HAD A TIDALWAVE OF

FORGIVENESS.

HE REALLY ACCEPTED ME.

HE REALLY CARED ABOUT THE

REAL ME.

Reporter: TIM DOESN'T

ENTERTAIN DEMONS ANYMORE OR

READ TAROT CARDS.

INSTEAD, HE TURNS TO GOD'S

WORD.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE

ANSWER.

HE IS NOT A SYMBOL.

HE IS A REAL HUMAN BEING

THAT HAS HIS ARMS WIDE

OPEN.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY,

JESUS, JESUS, FORGIVE ME FOR

MY SIN.
