|GOD CONTROLS FIRE|
A Chinese Christian had been asked to give money to a fund to be expended in sacrifice to idols as an insurance of his house against fire. He declined, because he trusted in the living God and declared that idols could not save from fire. When the idolatrous ceremony was over, fire broke out in the street where his home was and burned over 120 houses. When the flames were coming nearer and nearer to his house, they tried to persuade him to remove his furniture, but he refused and in their presence prayed to God to show that He was indeed the Lord of hosts Who could send legions of angels to deliver him, if need be, from so great a calamity. Nearer and nearer came the fire, until only one house stood between his own house and the flames. Suddenly there was a change of wind and his house was saved!
