Something Mysterious Happened

Updated on April 20, 2015

God works in ways we cannot see


Haunted House


On July 11th 2001 the house where I use to live was burnt to the ground and only debris remained. It’s a pretty long story as to how the house ended up burning which I don’t want to go into, because it will only stir up hate and anger. All in all I was happy that it was burnt down for several reasons.

  • It wasn’t a healthy environment for us to grow up
  • That house was sort of haunted and have many stories behind it.... I personally saw things "spirits" there which was very scary.
  • I always wished and prayed that we moved out from that place.. God answered my prayer by letting it burn.

Story continues...

Anyway this house was my great grandmother’s own which she left for my grandmother. When my grandmother married her second husband she left it for some of her children to live in as it was parted off into apartments. What I really want to get into is the day or two after the house was burnt down, I was staying at my uncle’s house at the time of the incident so we had made arrangements to go and see what the status of the place was.

When we arrived there all we saw was rubble and we went inside being very careful not to walk hard as we could have fallen through the flooring because it was an upstairs and downstairs. Everything was burnt to capacity except one thing which was very strange and mysterious. Just where my mother Joining room was located we had a huge king James Version Bible with pictures illustrating different bible stories. My uncle reached for the bible in astonishment and when we opened it the edges were burnt (just the white boarders) but all the scriptures and verses remained as though the fire had not tampered with it.

How that could possibly have happened after the fire gutted the house from top to bottom unless God himself had protected His word. It further confirmed our belief in God that He liveth and abideth forever and forever more.

All we could have think at that time is when God said in His word ===>

Matthew 24:35 King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

The Bible pages did not burn!!


Do you believe in Miracles

      Very interesting story. It almost seems like something right out of a movie. Yes, I believe in miracles. I have seen many "unexplained" things in my lifetime.

      I have heard and read of so many miracles and unexplained phenomena that nothing surprises me anymore Lady Fiddler. This is one of them though, and I have heard of Bibles surviving such things before. Incredible I know.

      I had a very similar experience. After graduating college, my family's home burned and all that remained in my charred bedroom was rubble and a piece of paper (smoke stained at the edges but perfectly in tact). It was the Chinese symbol for crisis that consists of two symbols: Danger and Opportunity. I had received it upon graduating from my college. Eerie.

      There are many mysteries of earth and heaven...We, as mortals, may never begin to understand. Our Creator and God means for some to remain as mysteries and at times allows us to see first hand his works. Blessings my friend. whonu

      Hello Mhatter99 good to see you and I hope you are much better than in the past few months :) Well i believe it's the both but the thing is Mhatter the age we live in we do not see miracles happening a lot as in the days of Jesus and the disciples etc.

      Yes it do have healing miracles etc but on a smaller scale. I am not talking about the people who actually fake they are healed on Television etc. We " true Christians" are yet waiting for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit like on the day of Pentecost that Miracles will return in full swing. Where the dead will be raised, the blind will see, the lame will walk etc not just one or two but by the thousands, just by the spoken word!

      So when things like these happens (as with the bible) we are astonished and either way we take it Man cannot do miracles so it Must be the hand of the Lord in such things.

      I hope i answered your question :)

      question - if one believes in God, are there really miracles or just the hand of the Lord?
