He Bought a Nylon Rope To Hang Himself

August 14, 2016

rope in a noose for hanging   He told me he is an ex-soldier and 3rd Dan martial arts practitioner. A very serious accident some years back had left him in constant pain, with little money and nothing to live for. I offered to pray “hands-on” for his healing from the pain but he wasn’t keen on this at all.

Life was so bad he decided one day to buy a length of nylon rope and set it up to hang himself, but his plan failed when the rope came loose.

He has an ability to see things that will happen to people and told me of many examples where prophecies he had given people had come true, exactly as he foretold. He didn’t like to use this gift unless he was pressurised to do so. I had no intention of asking him.

I told him I had something to tell to him about HIS future. The Bible says he will stand before God one day and be judged: “It is appointed for man once to die and after that the Judgment”. He wouldn’t accept this. He maintained he would be reincarnated and come back as a “helper” to assist others to find the way. He reckoned he seen seen a future for him surrounded by angels and meeting those he loved and having a happy time. One question I asked him he refused to answer, namely:”what is the pass mark for Heaven?”

He told me that he some debt counselling from a Christian man, who had then prayed for him.

Before he left he promised me that he would not try to end his life again. I told him God loved him, and that there is always hope in God. He needed to turn to God to mend his relationship with Him before it was too late. I gave him a card which quoted the words of Jesus:”wide is the road that leads to destruction and many travel on it. Narrow is the way that leads to life and there are few that find it”.

Outreach On The Street Again

July 25, 2015

He had gone for a newspaper and was resting on the way back to his retirement home. He will be 89 in December.We chatted about work and I explained that I worked for an International Organisation that had outlets in nearly every country in the world. He sounded intrigued, but not too surprised when I said it was the Kingdom of God. He had a Bible but didn’t often read it. I tried to encourage him to make his peace with God before it was too late.

We had a worship time in church, then hit the streets. Soon after we arrived a group of Muslims set up an information table not far from our pitch. Over a two hour period we prayed for a number of people. Several reported being pain free after hands-on ministry. A Christian evangelist nearby helpfully kept pointing people towards us as they passed by.

Before we finished I went over to the Muslim guys. They asked what we were doing. I explained what we did. One Muslim guy immediately started talking about the Trinity and tried to undermine what the Bible teaches about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I tried to get the conversation on to Jesus, but he wasn’t prepared to listen, so I moved on.
