Testimonies From The Japanese Earthquake Pt-1
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Testimony from Sister Grace:
You must have seen the terrible scene about how Japan suffered this fourfold calamity; earthquake, tsunami, energy shortage, and nuclear radiation pollution. We are Chinese sisters in Japan and we experienced the earthquake. I’d like to share my own experience since the disaster.
Maybe you know that the Japanese are almost all atheists (they do not believe in God), hardly any of them believe the Truth of Christ; though there are churches and many people claiming that they are Christian. We have been praying that the predestined seeds can be shaken and wake up from this earthquake. I know four precious Japanese sisters, but they received the Message delivered by our Prophet Brother Branham abroad. So far, actually, in Japan, almost no Japanese accepts this precious Message. Please do pray for them!
On March 9th, the earthquake (scale 7.2) was in Miyagi. Wednesday afternoon it didn’t bring much disaster. My husband said to me, “God really has mercy on Japan and Japan’s anti-earthquake technique is great, even such a strong quake can’t cause any damage to it.” I answered him and said, “If God will hit Japan, there must be another larger earthquake coming.”
As I said it, I felt a little strange. Why did I say that? My family is living here, Japan’s prosperity is important to us; furthermore, we know so many good people here who work as hard as they can, and do as kindly as they can, I do not want to see any disaster comes. However, I didn’t pay much attention to what I said.
On the deep night of March 13th, before I wrote a letter to friends in Mandarin, I felt like reading Bible. But I didn’t know which chapter to read, so I just opened the Bible. Praise God! The first thing I saw was Jeremiah 4:26, and I read through it:
I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
For thus hath the LORD said, the whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
I read through it and saw the next chapter. Jeremiah 5:1
Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.
And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely.
O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
Next day, I found that before 4:26, it is written 4:23-25:
I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”
Prophet Jeremiah saw an earthquake!
My personal experience of the quake is this (if you are busy, you do not have to read this paragraph). I was working in front of computer when the shake started. At the beginning it felt like earthquake. Because an earthquake is quite normal in the Kanto region, very often my colleagues and me would just say, “Earthquake!” And then continue our work. But this time it was different, the quake was longer and stronger. I walked out of the office raising my hand saying, “Hallelujah”, and persuaded one colleague of mine to evacuate downstairs. When we reached the ground floor and went out of the building, all the staff, employees and students were gathering. Everyone trembled while they were watching the building shaking, which went on for quite a few while.
In the nightfall, I returned to my office and then returned to my home. In my house there is nothing wrong, not one dish or bowl ever damaged in the earthquake. Praise the Lord!
It the night of March 11th, the cell phone kept giving alarm and waking me up, so I turned it off. But still, I got waken up by the quake quite some times during the night.
It’s still shaking almost every day here.
If you read the testimonies from my niece, Sister Kate and my daughter Sister Rebekah, you will see how our dear God protect His children in the disaster!
After reading the testimony of my daughter Rebekah, we recalled together about our wonderful experience twelve years ago. One day after we were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we were sitting before the old unit furniture to sort out our belongings, suddenly, a piece of glass fell down from the unit furniture, but it disobeyed the principles of gravity physics, and turned left and followed on to the floor lightly without being broken, this whole process is just like that it is a piece of paper instead of a piece of glass. If God was not on scene, the glass would have hit our face directly! Since that time, God continues to express His love and care for us.
Many foreign people fear the nuclear radiation and left Japan, we saints are still here to believe and pray for Japan. We believe that God will change the nuclear radiation Chemistry principle for us, just as a brother from Holland quote from “Quote of the Day”, March 19 in http://www.branham.org as the follows, to encourage us:
THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS 56-0405
God don’t want you to be frowning. God wants you to be happy. The human heart was made to be happy. Worry will cause cancer. Temper will cause cancer. Don’t never be upset. Just walk in His love. Amen. Knowing that you’re walking in Him, and nothing can harm you. There’s nothing can harm you. There’s neither powers, things present, things future, nothing can separate us from Him. We’re in Him. And we never come in by our own will. He, by choice, elected us and brought us in to Him. Amen. So it’s His business to take care of what He’s took Hisself. "No man can pluck them from My Father’s hands, ‘cause He’s the greatest of all of them." Amen. It’s the Father Who takes care of it. Who’s got any more power than God? So what kind of a power have you got over you to take care of you? The whole powers that created the universes. Amen.
Thus, I don’t know what’s still coming, however, before God leads us to leave Japan, we believe that Jesus Christ is our only absolute refuge. Hallelujah! Amen!
Please pray for any predestined seed in Japan and the believers here!
May God bless you!
