"For whoever would come near to God must believe that
God exists and that He is the rewarded of those
who earnestly and diligently seek Him." Hebr.11:6
Is There A Living God That Exists?
On the third day of November 1944 a small baby girl was born in a
town in Africa. (Pardon me, but I must be evasive about the specific country)
whole family was born again children of God. (Fanatics, most people would say)
did they leave home, not even to quickly go to town without pleading the Blood of Jesus
as protection upon them. Now that's really going to far, one could easily say, but
that was their way of living. Jesus was very welcome in their home as her parents
walked with the Lord, and their whole live was fashioned to
please the only living God through Jesus Christ.
When Eunice Swanepoel was nine years of age, she was contracted
with Polio which left her completely paralyzed from her waist down.
But she grew up as a lovely young girl with a beautiful voice. Hanes
Kaalsen saw her beauty and decided that this was to be his wife. They
got married and as their parents they also served Jesus Christ with all
their hearts. Doctors said that she could never have children as her spine
is severely bent which could result in being not able to give birth. But
they have three beautiful children. Eunice is a very lively person with
a cheerful character. People who suffer with depression comes to her
for help. I know all these things for she is my best and only friend.
Now what on earth has that got to do with whether God
exists or not? could one say, Oh!! but here comes the best part.
Eunice phoned me one day some time ago and said that she would
phone me about eight o'clock that night when they will be at home a
hour and a half's drive from where they were. Time passed by and
she didn't phone. I really got worried. It was about eleven that night
that she called and told me this most terrifying but also wonderful story.
------While driving in their Kombi from the city to the town
where they lived, they were talking about the love of God and His
faithfulness. Suddenly a car pushed them off the road and forced
them to stop. Five men climbed out of the car and they were heavily
armed with AK47 rifles. Hannes's first thought was. "My wife is
paralyzed. I have to protect her." He held the steering wheel with
his might, but they hit him over the head and for a split second he
was unconscious. They threw him in the back of the Kombi, and one of
the high jackers climbed in behind the steering wheel.
Eunice held on her lap a little Yorkshire terrier Now Ludwig, is a
very aggressive doggy and will surely tackle a Rotweiller without any
fear, and any stranger he will surely bite. He even bit me once or
twice. "Strangely", that night he wasn't aggressive at all.
make a sound.----The high jackers held guns against their heads and
one of them kept on saying "Shoot him, shoot him!!" But not a
was heard. Suddenly they turned off on a dirt road in the field, leading
to nowhere in the dark..........What I didn't mention was that all the
time Eunice was talking to them and God made her totally calm.
A supernatural calmness came over her. In the dark of the
night they stopped. The men through Hannes out, but when the
criminal opened Eunice's door and she looked right
into the barrel of the rifle and it
came so natural for her to say out loud "The Blood of Jesus!!!!"
Oh what power there is in the Blood of Jesus!!!!! The man was
startled. She ordered him to put his rifle down. Eunice commanded
him to first take out her wheelchair. That he did very obediently.
"Open it!" she said, and he obeyed.
Then she ordered him to gently put her in the wheelchair.
He supported her legs very carefully and put her in the wheelchair.
Now she ordered him to give her doggy.
He took a torch and sought for Ludwig and again amazingly the little
terrier allowed him to hand him over to her.
As if they were her servants they obeyed in fear.
Yes!! For sure, the fear of the only living God fell on them, because
they touched the apple of His Eye!
So leaving them right there they climbed into the Kombi and shouted
that Hannes and Eunice must not look back and must close their eyes......
Well, they stole the Kombi but the born again children of
God wasn't hurt by any means. God has protected them.
Hasn't He said
"But the very hairs on your heads are numbered."
(Matthew 10:30) ----
Listen to me dear reader. This type of behavior never happens in
Africa and I guess all over the world. Criminals kill, they murder, they
rape, and do the most terrible things that I don't even want to mention
but never, never, do they act so strangely.
One Newspaper stated that is was "thoughtful, considerate
and polite criminals." LOL.
Hannes and Eunice walked to the main road and people picked
them up and took them home. Eleven o'clock she phoned and I
heard this incredible story.
Is Jesus the King of your heart dear reader? Are you born again into
the family of God? Well I can tell you it is wonderful to know Jesus
Christ as my personal Savior. I serve Him since age 13 and I am now
God didn't make us to be robots. No he gave us our own free will to
You can choose to reject Jesus and go to Hell. It will break
His heart though for He already paid for your sins on Calvary's Cross.
But praise God, you can choose to accept Jesus Christ as your
personal Savior and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Jesus Christ,
Hell, and salvation is not another lie or a story. It is the truth
and the only truth. I pray that you will choose Jesus as He loved
so much that He gave His life for you and died for you to take your
punishment for your sins upon Him.
May the Lord bless this true testimony to your heart.
