True Church Stories - #7
One night we were having prayer meeting at our church and as usual it was really powerful.
On this particular night there was a first time visitor in our midst. He was down at the altar praying with right along with the rest of us. At the conclusion of the meeting he came to my husband and said, "Pastor I need to talk to you." He proceeded to tell Larry that God was moving in a mighty way over at a local Church of God church, and that in a prayer meeting there that week somebody prophesied and said, "Thus saith the Lord, God is giving out babies!!" (I believe this may have been a prophetic word about couples dealing with infertility or something of that nature and this gentleman took it the wrong way. The church he referred to is actually a wonderful, God-honoring, balanced church.) Anyway...
He said, "Pastor, I know you might not believe this but that prophetic word was given and, WE DON'T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED...IT WAS A TRUE MIRACLE, BUT THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, MY GIRLFRIEND WAS PREGNANT!!!"
What you need to know is that this man was sincerely trying to make my husband believe that this conception had happened with no sex involved. Ha ha!
My husband looked at him in all seriousness and said, "Sir, there's something I need to warn you about. What you have just told me is terrible news!!!!! For the last time this happened...the child was crucified."
(The guy did look horrified!)
Bah ha ha ha ha ha! My husband is so hysterical sometimes.
