    Here's what happened. A cousin of mine attented this revival programme with a couple of pals of his. Now in the programme, the preacher gets to the part where he starts laying hands on everybody, and they all start rolling over like mad, and tumbling over themselves like crazy. Then my cousin is sitting right at the back, laughing at the whole thing - my cousin is an atheist, by the way. So here's what he does, he tells his friends that he's gonna join the line, you know,prove ones and for all that there is no such thing as a higher power or something like that. His friends beg him, please man, don't do this. He's stubborn, and walks into the line and all. And he's looking while everybody is tumbling all about him, and trying to hide a laugh and all. All the while, looking behind at his amused friends, and making a thumbs up sign at them.(i don't know if he did that,really,but I'm just trying to make the story more interesting) anyways, he gets to the preacher, and the man lays his hand on my cousin, and BOOM! He summersaulted fully in the air, and landed thump on the ground. Immediately, he got up and scampered off the revival grounds, with his friends laughing like madmen. He ran all the way to my house, panting as he raced into my living room. I'm like, what's up with you, cous? And that's how he told me the full story, only to end it by saying. "There sure is a God." I laughed my head off.

      There is definitely a God and that is a Pentecostal revival. I am Pentecostal and I have definitely seen those things happen, including to myself. smile

        i like pentecostal. Of course, the church as a whole is a long ways from the blazing age of the early church. But at least, pentecostals try to capture that old fiery Spirit.

      I didnt believe in god myself and he was the biggest shock in my life.Called up my twin sister and girlfriend from the Atlantic ocean and told them I became the light, the cosmos and it was a state of extreme bliss and they should meditate and was called mad by both of them.
      My dad told me to see a phyciatrist or go to the Himalayas  seven to eight years back when I told him I got enlightened and now have to become a poet and work for god and my mom suggested the mental assylum or the jungles,today he says I cannot say anything to the prophet.
      God exists. smile

          That was fifteen years ago and she understood me before anyone else did.She has seen some of my powers and everyone doesn't laugh or mock a person ranked over Holy Bibles and Holy Qurans.Everyone is not so stupid. smile
          There are people who come to me when nothing else works, no amount of money or doctors, everyone is not as insulting as you. smile They are able to comprehend. smile

    Fellow Hubbers - Fraud warning! I've flagged this.  I'm sure you know this but don't send this person your personal details !!!
    Hopefully this 'hubber' will soon be banned.  Incidentally, this is a very unconvincing fraud!
