    Story of Angel and Cousin Sarah


    Several years ago, My cousin was playing with a lighter in his bedroom. He caught a newspaper or comic book or something on fire and threw it on his bed. There were several people sleeping there. The whole house went up in flames. Everyone got out except for my 3 year old cousin sarah. They had written her off as dead. The whole house was in flames and filled with smoke. An off duty fireman happened to be driving by and saw the smoke. He stopped to help. He looked into the bedroom window and saw her sitting under the window with her hands on her head. He pulled her out and she was burned and has some scars to this day. He asked her how she knew to come over to that window and sit on the ground. She said that the man in the fire told her "Don't be afraid, to go over to the window sit down and put your hands over your head and face". Years later, she recounted her story with me. She said that the man had no face, light shining from it, he was 3 feet tall and dressed in white. He was floating in the corner of the room. My Grandparents were deeply committed Christians. Often times my Grandmother would be up all night, having trouble sleeping, praying for the safety of the family. At the same exact time that the fire was going on, my grandmother was several miles away sleeping in her bed. She heard a voice that told her "There's been a fire, Liz and the kids got out ok". A few minutes later, my Grandfather got the call on the phone "There's been a fire, liz and the kids got out ok" He tried to tell her what they said, but she already knew. The reason that God Spoke to her, I believe, is because it was HER prayer that the Lord was answering. Otherwise, my cousin would have died in the fire.

    The Lord’s Widsom:

    Wisdom is a good thing, but it is a curse to them who indulge, because they who indulge have no wisdom.

    You need to live as though you’re being judged.

    that's a terrible way to live a life........

    No compassionate God would ask for that. So is God an egomaniac or compassionate?

    So what passage supports your post?

    This is what Jesus said in John 10:10, "... I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

    I don't have to time to go through the context of this whole chapter. So to those interested, do the reading and research for yourself as I don't want to be viewed as someone who pulls out a bible verse to support my stance.

    I do not believe you can "preach" on the internet. The person starting the thread may have 1 Peter 3:15 in mind,

    But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect

    where the focus is "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have". This is the central verse in apologetics. However, it is so easy to forget the first part which leads the last part of this verse. Revere Christ as Lord in your heart, ..., that means in all aspects of Christ, ..., and the emphasis when giving an answer is with gentleness and respect.

    Temperate=Moderate

    1Co 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

    Tit 2:1 ¶ But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. {sober: or, vigilant}

    If you can believe that there really are Angels, as this sentence seems to indicate, why is it far fetched to believe that it could be 3 feet tall? Are there people who are 3 feet tall? Why can't angels be 3 feet tall?
