The Heavenly Man

P12 |_ Suddenly . Suddenly Yun appeared in the arrival hall. He was none of these things! His face was full of light and wide smile stretched from ear to ear.
P14 |_ Instead . Instead of focusing on the many miracles or experiences of suffering he has gone throught, he prefers to focus on the character and beauty of Jesus Christ.
|_ It . It has been said, "It is not great men who change the world, but weak men in the hands of a great God."
P39 |_ ably . I decided to run home so that he wouldn't have to wait long for me. As I ran I recited Bible verses out loud, and didn't pay much attention to where I was running. Suddenly, even though I didn't feel anything or notice anything happen, I found myself entering my home village without any time passing! What should have taken a few hours took just a few moments.
P41 |_ The . The believers were filled with overwhelming joy. The only thing they could say was, "We wont be like Judas! We won't betray out Lord Jesus!"
P43 |_ Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord urged me to run! I shouted to Deling, "Run!" and I jumped out of the grip of the officer before he knew what was happening. He dropped the bag and chased me. As he ran he shouted, "Spy! Stop the spy!" Pandemonium broke out in the bus station. I jumped over a wall and slipped away from the crowed. It was a miracle. People said later the wall was far to high for a person of jump over.
P49 |_and . Sometimes the Lord did a miracl so that nobody felt the freezing water. Some even commented that the water had felt warm!
P50 |_ In one . In one meeting in the Nanyang area hundreds of people -- Christians and unbelievers alike -- saw a vision of a beutiful boat floating onm a sea of clouds above the meeting place. Many sinners repented and gave their lives to Christ as a result of this sign and wonder.
P53 |_ The true . The true church is not an organization controlled by the rules of men but a holy collection of living stones with Jesus Christ as the cornerstone.
P55 |_ birds . Sometimes they manage to trap birds and cage them behind iron bars, but even within those cage4s the free birds have laid eggs and reproduced, winning many sould to the Lord in prison.
|_ At . At this time I started my career of "fleeing evangelism". That is, we preached the gospel and then had to flee from one place to another being pursued by the police, just like Jesus had told his followers to do: "when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another:" - Matthew 10:23
P56 |_ and his . We must submit ourselves to God and embrace whatever he allows to happen. Sometimes there are times of peace, other times struggle and persecution. But both are from the Lord, to mould us into the vessels he wants us to be.
P57 |_ Soon . Soon they heard a noise coming from the cornfeild. I was snoring loudly!
P62 |_ For the first time I had the honour of literally bearing the cross of Christ on my body!
P64 |_ Peter . |_Hebrews 1:14 --" Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" The rope that bound my arms behind my back suddenly snapped by itself! I didn't tear the ropes off, but kept them loosely in place.
P65 |_ As I hung grimly onto the side of the wall, all of a sudden I felt as if somebody jpsited me up and threw me over
! I jumped so far that I even cleared the septic tank! A Scripture came to mind, |_ 2Samuel 22:30 -- "For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall."
P67 |_ "We . |_Acts 14:22 -- "..we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." They confidently told me, "We will continue by obeying the words from the Bible." Everyone wept.
P68 |_ Scripture . |_ 2Corinthians 1:8 -- "For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:" 9 -- "But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:"
P69 |_ This . This experience helped me have confidence that whatever Yun would go through was in God's hands and according to his will.
