 The Shepherd.


Praise God for such wonderful testimonies. May you be blessed by it.

God Protects His own!

We know that 80% of the town of Meulaboh in Aceh was destroyed by the
Tsunami waves and 80% of the people also died. This is one of the towns that
was hit the hardest.

But there is a fantastic testimony from Meulaboh. In that town are about 400

They wanted to celebrate Christmas on December 25th but were not allowed to
do so by the Muslims of Meulaboh. They were told if they wanted to celebrate
Christmas they needed to go outside the city of Meulaboh on a high hill and
they can celebrate Christmas there .

Because the Christians desired to celebrate Christmas the 400 believers left
the city on December 25th and after they celebrated Christmas they stayed
overnight on the hill.

As we all know, in the morning of Sunday, December 26 -2004 , there was the
earthquake followed by the Tsunami waves destroying most of the city of
Meulaboh and thousands were killed. The 400 believers were on the mountain
and were all saved from destruction.

Now the Muslims of Meulaboh are saying that the God of the Christians
punished us for forbidding the Christians from celebrating Christmas in the
city. Others are questioning why so many Muslims died while not even one of
the Christians died there.

Had the Christians insisted on their rights to celebrate Christmas in the
city, they would have all died. But because they humbled themselves and
followed the advice of the Muslims they all were spared destruction and can
now testify of God's marvelous protection.

This is a testimony of the grace of God and the fact that as believers we
have no rights in the world. Our right is come before God and commit our
lives to Him. Our right is kneeling down before the Lord almighty and commit
our ways to Him. He is our Father and is very capable to care for His
children. Praise the Name of the Lord.
