I, Minister Robert Hale, was just checking out from the register at Walmart when the Holy Spirit of Christ spoke to me and instructed me to go back to the book stand. I said, "Thank-you God! I remember now I am all out of bibles to give away", thinking that was the reason. When I got in front of the section containing bibles and such the Holy Spirit suddenly gave me tunnel vision (A proven method that God uses with me when He wants to direct my path) and would not let me focus on anything but this Jesus Freaks book. I opened the book and read a story about a saint who was jailed back during the 1500's and was ready to be burned at the stake the next day for his preaching with-out the approval of the High Church then in rule of the saint's country. (Why America became a country, the freedom to worship!). How that one of his fellow inmates needed to know if this Christ God was real or not in the way that the saint preached, that salvation was by grace thru faith. The challenge given was for the saint to clap his hands after he died by being burned. After prayer the saint told the fellow inmate that he would do just that. Well the word got around. Soon the prison and the guards knew the promise given. This saint was very popular with the people of the village and quickly word was told. Word also got to the High Church officials who ordered that the fire be overbuilt and made hotter than normal. Well the next day they burned the saint at the stake with the better part of the village watching. It was nothing but a smoldering black skeleton still at the stake, and most had given up when suddenly the hand bones clapped, not once but three times!... Needless-to-say I bought the Book!
