When Angel Colon woke up from a cocaine-induced blackout, his face was covered in blood.
His bedroom appeared ransacked, with furniture tossed upside down. When he asked his roommates what happened, no one knew.
But Angel did.
"What I didn't tell my roommates at that moment was that I had a lot of nights where I had spiritual warfare, a lot of nights where I fought with demons. I had a lot of nights where even though I was in the world, I still went through spiritual warfare. That's how I knew there was a purpose for me," Colon says.
"I would wake up at nights where I would literally hear demonic voices, and I'm fighting with them, but even though I was in the world, I would rebuke them. I would pray, and they would go away."
Colon's story made international headlines when he was one of 49 people wounded in the Pulse massacre in 2016.
Most people know his story because the Lord set him free from homosexuality.
But for the "Addicted" series on the Charisma News podcast, sponsored by Courage for Life, Colon opens up about his raging drug addiction and the intense spiritual warfare that fueled his habits.
