This reminds me of a story I saw on television where a small child was being interview with his parents. He was about 3 years old & while at motel & staying on the 7th floor he managed to go through an open door & unto the balcony. Before his parents could get to him he climbed the rail & fell over landing on the concrete parking lot below with no injuries. The little boy told the man interviewing him that the angel caught him. He did not beleive it & said that his pamper had probally filled with air & broke his fall. The little boy replied “No I told you the angel caught me!” Of course the man doing the interview did not believe the frustraded child because the man would not beleive him! God still has angels out there who do show-up at times just because God is trying to get us to listen to Him! I do listen to Him & believe on His Son Jesus Christ & at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Atlanta we do believe in the Spiritual gifts! Thank You Rev. Wilkes Associate Minister.

Great news

Thanks so much for sharing Jack. God is truly not done with you yet! This story is just a reminder of how we all need to be ready at any moment. Only God knows when our last day here on Earth will be.

Is it selfish of me to say I am glad God spared you and left you here for a little while longer? Truly and inspirational true story Jack … thank you for sharing.

Robert January 3, 2013 at 6:42 pm

Wow…what a story, Jack.
Thank God (very much) that he saw fit to bring you through all that. I’m sure He has things planned for you. I am so glad you are here with us, brother.
Yours in Christ,

Patricia Schneider January 3, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Wow, Pastor Jack! You truly experienced a miracle on that fateful day. (Angels and seat-belts.) May I share an experience that happened to me during the late 1960’s? I was driving on the Pennsylvania turnpike to Washington D.C. after spending the week-end w/family. Though my Dad had warned me NEVER to pick up hitchhikers, a sailor w/his duffel bag over his shoulder, was thumbing for a ride. I stopped, asking where he was heading. Maryland. Figured he was a serviceman, what harm could it be, right?
Well, I was driving for about an hour (it takes 4 hours from
Pittsburgh to D.C.) There was a truck ahead of me, so I
went to pass him. For some reason, the sailor grabbed the
steering wheel! My car went around the front of the truck, up onto the side of turnpike, back onto turnpike facing traffic. All I could see, Pastor Jack, was 2 sets of headlights…the car was out of control. Then and there, I said to Jesus, “It’s in Your Hands now, Jesus!”
Instantly, (it seemed,) the car was on the ramp, still facing traffic. There was silence between the sailor and me for several minutes. Then I exploded~”What the he** did you think you were doing grabbing the steering wheel like that?”
He thought I was going to hit the meridian guard as I was
passing the truck!?! Oh, Pastor Jack, I was livid, not realizing the miracle that had just happened (that occurred many years later.) Gave the sailor a good(?) scolding, had to make a u-turn to get back into traffic, dropped him off somewhere on the Maryland belt-line. NEVER again did I pick up a hitchhiker~. So, it’s true…only God knows when our time here on earth is up. Please continue praying for me. God bless you, Pastor Jack! Patty

Patricia….we are often visited by angels unaware and they can appear as an average Joe. My thought is that you had a miracle and since God knows the very day of our earthly departure, He was not obviously done with you and I thank God that He brought you to us.

Amen, will pray for you. You are such a blessing to me personally Patty.

Ths reminds me of something that happened to me when I was but 19 years old. I was in a really bad four-wheeler accident in which the brake handle broke off into my leg when I flipped, ripping a hole into my inner thigh and coming within centimeters of my femel atery. I landed upside down in a small ditch, having miraculously missed two culverts- one of which was deeply shredded, rusted and jagged. I was nearly an hour away from any hospital, lost in a over a hundred acres of woodland. The friend who was with me had never been there before, was lost and had no idea where to find help. Left alone, I prayed… I felt that if it was my time, then I was ready. All the sudden… I felt an indescribable peace. I say it’s indescribable because it is… The only word I can think of that comes close is “divine”. Then… I heard God’s voice in my ear as a calm whisper. “It’s not your time,” He said. …and I knew I would be ok. I felt nothing… no insect bites, no pain… only peace. When my parents reached me they thought for a moment that I was dead because I was laying there in complete stillness. I hate that I scared them so badly… but I am thankful could open my eyes to them. The EMTs thought I had two broken arms, a broken leg, broken ribs, internal bleeding in my chest and head on top of the gash in my leg. I told them I was ok but I couldn’t move for the pain was immense… My face was covered in insect bites and my pants had to be cut off my body before transport. When I awoke in the hospital the next day, they told me I had a hundred stitches put into my leg and only a mild cut and some swelling. They were stunned that I was alive- even moreso that my injuries were so minor. I wasn’t. I knew it was my guardian angel who kept me from “dashing my foot against a rock” when I fell…. and I knew it was the Lord who held me as I layed there alone in the dark.
It wasn’t my time. I am 35 now and a proud mother of three.
The Lord speaks- you only have to listen.

I sure know just as there are demons , and Lucifer to lead me to sin , there are certainly the good Angels to help us , the song He could have called 10,000 angels , he actually could have called , what was it 12 legions of angels , many more than 10,000 actually , and I know without a shaddow of doubt as dumb as I am , GOD has known the precise time to act , the place , etc. , I am presently having my old human problem way of waiting again , certainly need prayer from you all please to trust and obey !!!!!!

Patricia Schneider January 16, 2013 at 11:26 am

Hello, Pastor Jack! This is for Nicolas (January 16, 2013.) OK?

Hello, Nicholas! Be assured that MANY folks are praying for you, as I am, too! (And STOP thinking of yourself as ‘dumb!’ You just might start truly believing that, then you will close yourself to new knowledge, especially important stuff from Scripture! Think about that~!) (I tend, at times, to think I’m DENSE, ’cause it takes me awhile to understand some things. But many loved ones have assured me that I’m not, and so I’m trying my best to believe in myself more. You try to, Nicholas. OK?)
Thanks for sharing your comments with WCWTK, Nicholas!
Look forward to hearing more from you!
Oodles of blessings for the New Year, 2013, for you and your family, Nicholas! Patty

More blessings for you, Pastor Jack, and your family! Patty

Would you be capable to guidebook myself on your internet marketer or even the person who takes care of your blog post, I’d like to determine it could be possible to be considered a invitee poster.

I would like to address the issue of wearing seatbelts. Before I became a Christian I ALWAYS wore my seatbelt. After I became a Christian I went to live with a Christian couple. The woman never wore hers, and talked a lot about faith and trusting God for protection… I was foolish and naive and I innocently, not arrogantly began to believe God will protect me. I stopped wearing my seatbelt, and you can probably guess what happened, of course.
She got into a crash turning left. I remember throwing my hands up to block my face as it hit the wind-shield. Fortunately we all recovered. For a long time after little bits of glass were coming out of my forearms and forehead. All I could do was look back and think how stupid I was. I mean I ALWAYS wore my seat belt before I was saved. Anyways I’m grateful that God did protect me despite my stupidity. If I just obeyed the law…
