1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.

Recent Miracle In Egypt

I was not at all surprised while reading this story sent to my email. The Bible has this same miracle which I will mention hereinafter.

Here's the story:

A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter.

The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE!

The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed at the end of July.

The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says: A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister, she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, this was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!

Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. End of the story.

This story may be a hoax, not true or unverified but I will tell you a similar story in the Bible.
Daniel 3:8 Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and accused the Jews.

Daniel 3:9 They spoke and said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O king, live forever!

Daniel 3:10 You, O king, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the gold image;

Daniel 3:11 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”

Daniel 3:13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king.

Daniel 3:14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up?
Daniel 3:15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

Daniel 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.

Daniel 3:17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.

Daniel 3:18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

Daniel 3:19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated.

Daniel 3:20 And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:22 Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego.

Daniel 3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

Daniel 3:25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Daniel 3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire.

Daniel 3:27 And the satraps, administrators, governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together, and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them.
Did you notice the similarity? Assuming the miracle in Egypt did happened, Will the Egypt authorities can make a decree similar to King Nebuchadnezzar's decree?
Daniel 3:29 Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.”
It reminds me also of this verse:
Ecclesiastes 3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
I am not saying that the Egypt incident really happened but it may happen anywhere because God requireth that which is past.


  1. You always give me a lot to think about. Thank you for that.


  2. Story appears to be false. Check it out here on snopes:


  3. Thank you Anne for the comment. Glory to God.

    @ Colleen:

    I read the story on the link you gave. Thanks for the info.

    But as I have said, true or not God really continue to make miracles on our lives only in different stories or scenario.

  4. I appreciate your work specially for spreading the Word of God...but don't you think God wanted that you make a research/study first before you re-post stories... True or not...I believe God only wanted the truth..God bless..

  5. I think you are not getting God's message.

    God never wanted the truth because he is the truth.

    People like us must know the truth not the truth of this world but the truth God has because we will not be save by the truth of this world. Anyone who love the world is an enemy of God.

  6. The story in Daniel was entirely different, there were witnesses! The purpose of the miracle was to send a message to those witnesses particularly Nebuchanezzar. That story was validated. It really isn't very similar in any other way either.

    Just because someone tells you it was in the news on CBS or wherever doesn’t mean it was. ‎Check it out and add the verifiable source to your story especially if you are a church, pastor or ‎authority or web publisher of any kind.‎ By the way 2004 is not recent.

    ‎ If this story were true, >>The country is outraged over the incident, and the ‎man will be executed<< ‎somewhere, someplace there should be an actual hands-on article from a ‎legitimate news source. ‎You will probably have to go back to 2004. Snopes article mentions ‎that they began receiving ‎copies of this letter in 2004 and yet in 2008 and now 2011 it is still ‎reported as a new ‎occurrence and someone made a PowerPoint presentation of it. ‎

    ‎ God does many miracles and appearing to two scared little girls and rescuing them is ‎‎reasonable. But that he would nourish a child buried alive >>woke up my mom so she ‎could ‎nurse<< and wake up a dead woman to nurse the baby>>2 little girls under the ‎sand<< rather ‎than bringing someone to dig them out or bringing them out himself, is ‎ludicrous. Remember, ‎He just called to Lazarus and he walked out of his tomb. Feed them while ‎buried in sand for two ‎weeks? I don't think so. Did he stay with them and breathe for them too. ‎

    The point of a miracle being so fantastical would be to bring the unsaved to awareness of Him, ‎but in order to do that the story would have to be substantiated. God has the power to make that ‎happen in spite of those who would hide the truth. ‎

    ‎ Now, the thing is, Christians repeating stories that are unsubstantiated, whether or not it can ‎be proved an untrue hoax make us look like ‎ignorant and superstitious fools, (The world ‎already thinks that is what we are, we shouldn't prove them right,) we ‎lose credibility. The Lord ‎does many wonders in this world and many miracles, but ‎when God does a miracle, He has the ‎power to insure there are witnesses that can be verified. ‎

    When you forward or publish things like this no matter how lovely they seem on first review, ‎‎you are acting the lemming: one following after another with no idea of where they are going; ‎‎not a sheep: one who follows a good shepherd. The ‘Good Shepherd’ knowing that where ‎they ‎go is where they need to be.‎

    ‎ We represent Jesus in this world, Jesus is not ignorant or a superstitious ‎fool or UN-credible. ‎We must take great care to not appear as such ourselves.‎

    ‎ Satan ‎really likes it when we misrepresent Jesus as a fool. The devil likes nothing better than ‎dressing ‎up a lie in 'pretty' and getting God’s children to pass it on like lemmings. God doesn’t ‎need us to ‎lie, exaggerate or embellish for him and doing so ruins our credibility as witnesses ‎for him and I am really tired of seeing ‎it happen. ‎

    ‎ I believe in Jesus that He is Lord God and I believe in miracles and the Bible, I don’t ‎believe ‎in lying or embellishing the truth for Him, I am very sure He doesn’t want us to, or to ‎advance ‎any such untruths. The ends DO NOT justify the means. Repeating something without proof or ‎firsthand knowledge, that may or may not be true because you don’t have proof that it is false, ‎or because it sounds good is wrong. That is the same thing as repeating gossip, it is a sin. ‎

  7. @ coshea: Do not be concerned with the world too much.

    Eccles 1:13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this grievous labor hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised with it.

    Eccles 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

    Eccles 2:11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labor that I had labored to do: and behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.

    You said, "Feed them while ‎buried in sand for two ‎weeks? I don't think so. Did he stay with them and breathe for them too." ‎

    As I've said, I am not saying that the alleged incident is true but I do not doubt the miracle that God can do.

    Mt 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said to them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

    Lk 1:37 For with God nothing will be impossible.

  8. @coshea: You have said "Remember, ‎He just called to Lazarus and he walked out of his tomb."

    Lazarus died of sickness.

    Jn 11:1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

    Jn 11:14 Then said Jesus to them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

    The miracle was done prior to the calling of Lazarus to walked out of his grave because God has a hold of the past when Lazarus was still not sick.

    Ecclesiastes 3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

    Just imagine if Lazarus died of bombings where his internal organs were busted. I perceived, you have heard of the calling but you didn't see the miracle.

    Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
