Is There a Living God That exists?

"For whoever would come near to God must believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him." Hebr.11:6 (Ampl Bible)

On the third day of November 1944 a small babygirl was born in a town in Africa. (Pardon me, but I must be evasive about the specific Country.) Her whole family was born again children of God. (Fanatics, most people would say). Never 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 there 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 steeringwheel with all his might, but they hit him over the head and for a split second he was unconscious. They through him in the back of the Kombi, and one of the highjackers climbed in behind the steeringwheel.

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. He didn't make a sound.----The highjackers held guns against their heads and one of them kept on saying "Shoot him, shoot him!!." But not a shot 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 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, dot they act so strangely. One Newspaper stated that is was "thoughtful, considerate and polite criminals". Lol. Hannes and Eunice walked to the main road an 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 Saviour. I serve Him since age 13 and I am now 52.. If Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart right now, please will you contact me and it will be a privilege for me to lead you to Christ. God didn't make us to be Robots. No he gave us our own free will to choose. You can choose to reject Jesus and go to Hell. It will break His heart thow for He already paid for your sins on Calvary's Cross. But praise God, you can choose to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Jesus Christ, Heaven, 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 you so much that He gave His life for you and died for you to take your punishment for your sins upon Him. My E-Mail addy is

May the Lord bless this true testimony to your heart.
