Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the bible, A pastor from Baghdad has literally survived what looks like a fiery furnace
Pastor Joseph has spoken out about how the Lord saved him from an assassination attempt.
It was a typical day for Pastor Joseph, he had just left his home, hopping into his car, turning the keys in the ignition, and pushing the accelerator as he had so many times before. Only this time, as he began the familiar journey toward his church, he sensed something was different.

Immediately an explosion ripped through the car, violently shaking the vehicle and—at the same time—engulfing it in flames.
CBN News reports that Pastor Joseph sensed that something was amiss the morning of the car bomb explosion. He got into his car and started the vehicle as usual, but seconds later the vehicle erupted into flames as the bomb detonated.
“I was totally confused, and I couldn’t see anymore,” the pastor recalled from that horrific experience.
He also remembered a woman screaming, “This man is dying!”

Though disoriented and in shock, he could hear the woman’s hysterical voice piercing his ears. “This man is dying!” She screamed.
“This is it.” Pastor Joseph resolved. “I am dying.”
And indeed, Pastor Joseph thought he was about the die, but God had other plans.
According to Open Doors USA, despite the flames that surrounded him, Joseph was still able to get out of the wrecked car in the nick of time before it was completely consumed by the fire.
Miraculously, he survived unscathed—not even a scratch on his body.

“Each part of my car was destroyed and damaged, except for my seat.” Pastor Joseph remembered. “I had no scratches. The car was in flames, but I wasn’t burned. I found pieces of glass in my hair and four parts of the bomb in the scarf I had around my neck. As if a scarf could stop a bomb. Nothing touched me, I lost not even a drop of blood.”
The pastor knows it was God who allowed him to survive, and he believes God did so because He still had work for him to do.
“God gave me additional time. He put his stamp on my ministry, He said ‘Go on.’ God encouraged me that day.”

He told Open Doors USA that his life was spared so he could minister to Muslims turning to Christianity.
Pastor Joseph has been encouraged to witness so many Muslims turning to Christ despite the threats they face.
“God gave me additional time,” Pastor John said. “He put his stamp on my ministry, He said ‘Go on.’ God encouraged me that day.”

“We have new blood, born again new believers,” he said. “We like to be like a Menorah,” he added. “We’re a small group, we trust in our God. He can use us. We see that everyone is seeking peace, love, and hope. We as a church are sharing about the ultimate source of these things. When they hear us talking about this, they listen.”
Pastor John insists on staying in the area despite the looming threat of violent persecution. He wants to be available to minister to people coming from the Islamic faith.
“There is violence everywhere, persecution everywhere. We suffer from the same things as all the people here suffer from. We want to be with them,” he said.

OUR GOD IS GREAT
I’m always wondering why these religious fanatics will not allow God to fight His course; instead, they want to help God at all cost. Why trying to kill someone because he/she is inviting you to Christ?
Anyone. That fights for his or her god is serving a fake god. The almighty God fights for His people and not the other way.
God has sent His Son Jesus Christ to deliver the pastor from the fiery furnace. The Prince of Peace and the Messiah of the world. He will deliver anyone that sincerely call upon His name
No matters what they do God will overcome them , because Bible said we will face persecution but cheerful because He has conquer the world
Here’s a proof that what God before He can do it again because He’s the same Jesus Christ the Son of God, who never changes. Thank You Lord Jesus.
📣This God is too good ooooooo🎼🎶💒
Comment: I have been in similar situation before, but not like that of Pastor Joe. mine was a miraculous escape from a near-death accident that the world thought was the end of our lives in the 28-seater bus almost squeezed in between a trailer and a Marcopolo bus last month (November, 2019).
I saw God tell me “Dont worry, I am with you!” after our brake failed on a slope. The vehicle ran down the steepy road for over one kilometre amidst large number of road users, yet, not even a scratch on our vehicle or against anyone.
The vehicle stopped on its own, and all passengers aboard came out thanking God.
Our God is doing a new thing and the whole world will, most see that we serve a living God the one that protect and give life in aboundant. This testimony is to all christian. God is saying don’t give up am here for you just believe.
Those who control the Islam theocracy do not like it when their citizens rejected Islam and the god Hubal. And they do not like those who help people see the true nature of Islam.
Glory to God. He is always in the business of rescuing His own. Pastor, ride on and do more work for God. You are spared for more assignment for God.I Thank God for His intervention for you
Why people put God in duality. “Our God and their God”!!!!!
God is oneness in all no matter what religion one believes.
Any who fights on behalf of his God is trusting and serving a presumed God. Please, better Frank to yourself believe in Jesus Christ who’s (searching) Calling for you.
Great deliverer thank you for your saving grace and power. Shalom.
Thank you Jesus our Lord for rescuing your servant pastor Joseph

The Holy Spirit that was able to perform great and awesome powers through our biblical ancestors …So then who are filled by the Holy Spirit possess the same power today … I believe that a coming online of the direct power of God is eminently possible with each and every Spirit led believer soon
