*You, the Children of Now, can appreciate my storied birth among the children of then..
This was an email by my colleague, a true story that explains how good & faithful our God is.. it was so horrible in the first line when you read it, but as you continue.. in no doubt, it makes you feel, blessed!
This story has a real twist. It has no end but a beginning that touches everybody’s heart..
now.., then.., & after..
"A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter."
The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the two (2) little girls under the sand - ALIVE!
The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed at the end of July.
The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:- 'A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,' she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian National TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than Jesus Christ, because nobody else does things like this!'
Muslims believe Isa (Jesus Christ) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle.
Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie doesn't help! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East, you can be sure this story will spread. Christ is still controlling and turning the world. Please let this story be shared.
The Lord says, 'I will bless the person who puts his trust in me..
