There were two ministers whom were called of the Lord of
heaven, who had never met. Both had recently went through
their seventh stumble, but the LORD had delivered them
and taught them a most valuable lesson.
You see they had each learned that EACH time they stumbled
it was because they had wrongfully believed a word from
men instead of God.
They each now knew that what the LORD tells them THEY
could trust, no matter what their eyes saw, or what their
They also both knew what proverbs says " A just man shall
fall seven times, but they shall get back up". Both of
them knew Gods word and understood that when they followed
the spirit EVERYTIME, and in all things that "their
foot stumbleth NOT". So each was fully prepared for every
One was told by the LORD God to go to a port city and that
when he got there, the Lord would provide the place where
He would preach, and everything else he needed.
So, he told his wife what the Lord had told him to do, and
she said " Blessed be the LORD God of heaven, for of a
truth, HE directs your every step".
As this preacher drove to the port city, He did as he
always had done and stayed focused on what the Lord said
to him. During his drive, the thought came to him that
the LORD would provide him with a new vehicle for his
was now a few years old and had quite a few miles on it.
The LORD confirmed this to him by saying to him, Do as I
tell you to do in all things, and I will give you every
desire of your heart. (scripture)
He had a ways to go, as it was a few hundred miles away.
He had left around 10:00 o’clock and it was now around
Both of these ministers had been taught by the LORD that
the MOST important thing they could do was to trust GOD
and his Holy word, and they both understood that GOD not
only sees all things, but had complete control of all
things at all times.
They both knew that NOTHING moves or changes without the
LORD moving it or changing it.
Meanwhile, at the same moment, the other minister who
lived in the port city was awakened by the LORD at 1:00AM.
You see he had prayed to the LORD before going to bed and
asked him for some help! He knew that in the morning he
was going to stand before a crowd of ten thousand, and he
had never preached to a crowd of that size before, and he
knew what Gods word says " Where one can put a thousand to
flight, two can put ten thousand to flight".
As he was getting out of bed, the word of the Lord came to him saying:
Go to the port city, and take with thee an extra suit. This you will give to the man whom I send . Get thee to the dock where the ships offload, even to the edge of the deep. So, he got the suit, and told his
Wife what the Lord had said to him, to which she replied, Go to the dock at this hour? Blessed be the name of the Lord, for surely He will do as he has told thee!
Back to the first minister who was driving to the same city, as he looked down the road he could hardly believe his eyes, for across the
Roadway was a huge sign that was lit, and the roadway was blocked.
BRIDGE OUT. From which way he came, he knew that this was the only access to the port city the LORD had told him to go to! So he thought to himself: The LORD would have not sent me here at this time, only to have to turn back now, so he got out of his car and moved the sign, drove just past it, and put it back as it was behind him. He enquired of the LORD about what the sign said: BRIDGE OUT..and the LORD said to him, prove all things.
So, he hopped back into his car and continued on his way. In the dark of the night, he had just got back up to highway speed when to his
surprise the road disappeared. He hit his brakes, but was going too fast to stop.
He felt his car falling and falling, it did a somersault and landed right side up with a huge splash. The air bag deployed and gave him a jolt, but he was not hurt. As he started sinking, and the car started to
Fill with water, he thought, I shall just climb out and swim.
In his great faith, he thanked the LORD for delivering him from harm. He reached for the door handle, and the LORD told him to be still. He could feel the car sinking deeper and deeper, and the water was now up to his waist. He had no fear. He had no doubt, for he had already spoken his faith to the LORD.
As his car came to a halt, he thought surely I have reached the bottom. It was then that he noticed the sensation of being lifted, because you see the LORD have never taken his eyes off of his servant, and had in place at that very moment a great whale.
The whale simply took his huge head and swam beneath the car and balanced it upon his great head, and began to surface. When his head broke the surface, the minister knew somehow that the LORD had saved him. So he gave again thanks and praise.
It was then, he noticed that he was getting closer to the shore, for the lights of the dock were getting nearer. As the whale drew next to the dock, he submerged about twenty feet, then with a quick burst of speed he broke the surface and nosed the car right off of him, right upon the dock!
Upon seeing this, the other minister jumped out of his car and went to the driver asking him, are you the LORDS witness? To which came the reply praise God yes! For the LORD had told me that I would meet you in the port city!
To which the other minister replied, here is a suit the LORD had me to bring you, and now I know why! While driving to his home to spend the night, minister number two had told him all the things which were going on in his life.
You know said he, The LORD has blessed me over the years with a two hundred and fifty dollar mansion, but during some stumbling, I made some bad decisions, took out a mortgage and now it is in foreclosure and this very day before the sun goes down the bank manager is supposed to come and repo it, but trusting the LORD as HE has told me to do, I have not worried about it in the least, for the LORD, has said to me, I will deliver you, ye shall not lose your home. Just continue doing what I tell you, when I tell you to do it.
And it was so, that they agreed that this was all the LORDS doing. They knew the LORD had put them together, so that they could deliver the ten thousand which they would stand before the next morning!
So the next morning the two witnesses stood before the crowd and told them about the incredible events that had brought them together, and how the LORD had a hand in everything that had took place. When they heard their story, the LORD moved upon them all and delivered them all to the glory of God!
When the collection offering had been made, it did not look like very much money had been raised, considering the huge number of people who had come. Then they noticed that a set of keys had been place into the plate. Stepping up to the microphone one of them said who’s set of keys are these in the plate. A doctor who the LORD had placed there spoke up saying, I just had bought a new forty thousand dollar car yesterday, and the LORD told me that you had need of a new automobile, so they are yours! As they were counting the offering the last check was laying face down in the plate, when one of them got it out and turned it over and was amazed to see that it was written out to the sum of a half of a million dollars! Praise God said the man who was facing the foreclosure on his house, I knew to trust the LORD, for this is exactly what I needed today to get my house paid off!
The moral of this story is: for those who work for the LORD, all things are possible, who act only upon faith, and do that which the
LORD GOD tells them to do. For they judge not by appearance
But only that which the LORD has said!
