MINISTER ESCAPES FROM CAMBODIAN PRISON
Monday evening, Randy shared about a "true apostle" currently
ministering in Cambodia, his native country. Apparently this man had
become a Christian in 1973. He was imprisoned for his faith later.
During his imprisonment, all he was given was rice for food once a day.
His hands and feet were in shackles, only his mouth was free. So, he
would praise the Lord, night and day. One night, five months of eating
only rice, he was close to death weighing only 65 pounds. He began to
praise and worship. Suddenly, the jail cell was filled with angels
worshipping and the Lord told him that he would be free. He asked the
Lord.....how can this be??? The Lord said only to trust. That night a
storm arose and the lights went out....and guess what???? He escaped
with a Christian doctor(?) imprisoned with him !
This same Cambodian was leading a group to freedom across the Thailand
border at a later point in time. The Lord told them to turn back as
they approached the actual border to Thailand. This man obeyed, as did
his family and most with him. But there were others that did not obey.
You probably have guessed it.....those that disobeyed were ambushed and
shot to death. Those that obeyed were safe and made it to freedom. The
message: if God tells you to do something: OBEY! AND DON'T
I was really encouraged by that testimony. There are some definite
things in my life that the Lord is telling me to obey Him on. Very
specifically, I know what those things are. All of us do....let's take
a reminder from this soldier of the Lord and OBEY NOW!
