Story from 9/11

A man from Norfolk, VA called a local radio station to share this on Sept 11th, 2003, TWO YEARS AFTER THE TRAGEDIES OF 9/11/2001.

His name was Robert Matthews. These are his words: A few weeks before Sept. 11th, my wife and I found out we were going to have our first child.. She planned a trip out to California to visit her sister. On our way to the airport, we prayed that God would grant my wife a safe trip and be with her. Shortly after I said ‘amen,’ we both
heard a loud pop and the car shook violently. We had blown out a tire. I replaced the tire as quickly as I c ould, but we still missed her flight. both very upset, we drove home.

I received a call from my father who was retired NYFD. He asked what my wife’s flight number was, but I explained that we missed the flight.

My father informed me that her flight was the one that crashed into the southern tower. I was too shocked to speak. My father also had more news for me; he was going to help.. ‘This is not something I can’t just sit by for; I have to do something.’

I was concerned for his safety, of course, but more because he had never given his life to Christ. After a brief debate, I knew his mind was made up. Before he got off of the phone, he said, ‘take good care of my grandchild. Those were the last words I ever heard my father say; he died while helping in the rescue effort.

My joy that my prayer of safety for my wife had been answered quickly became anger. I was angry at God, at my father, and at myself. I had gone for nearly two years blaming God for taking my father away. My son would never know his grandfather, my father had never accepted Christ, and I never got to say good-bye.

Then something happened. About two months ago, I was sitting at home with my wife and my son, when there was a knock on the door. I looked at my wife, but I could tell she wasn’t expecting anyone. I opened the door to a couple with a small child.

The man looked at me and asked if my father’s name was Jake Matthews. I t old him it was. He quickly grabbed my hand and said, ‘I never got the chance to meet your father, but it is an honor to meet his son.’

He explained to me that his wife had worked in the World Trade Center and had been caught inside after the attack. She was pregnant and had been caught under debris. He then explained that my father had been the one to find his wife and free her. My eyes welled up with tears as I thought of my father giving his life for people like this. He then said, ‘there is something else you need to know.’

His wife then told me that as my father worked to free her, she talked to him and led him to Christ. I began sobbing at the news.

Now I know that when I get to Heaven, my father will be standing beside Jesus to welcome me, and that this family would be able to thank him themselves .

When their baby boy was born, they named him Jacob Matthew, in honor of the man who gave his life so that a mother and baby could live.

This story should help us to realize this: God is always in control..

We may not see the reason behind things, and we may never know this side of heaven, but God is ALWAYS in control.

Please take time to share this amazing story. You may never know the impact it may have on someone. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

Red Bull Warning

IT IS ADVISED NOT TO CONSUME THIS DRINK. IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS
DRINK!

As a public health safety, please pass on this email to all the
contacts in your address book especially those with teenage children. and make copies to
show to all the people you know.

This drink is SOLD in all the supermarkets IN OUR country.  and our
children ARE CONSUMING IT ON A TRIAL BASIS. IT can be mortal.

RED BULL was created to stimulate the brains in people who are
subjected to great physical force and in “stress coma” and never to be consumed
like an innocent drink or soda pop. RED BULL IS the energizer DRINK that is
commercialized world-wide with its slogan:

‘It increases endurance; awakens the concentration capacity and the
speed of reaction, offers more energy and improves the mood. All this can be found in a
can of RED BULL, the power drink of the millennium.!

‘Red Bull has managed to arrive at almost 100 countries worldwide.  The
RED BULL logo is targeted at young people and sportsmen, two attractive segments that
have been captivated by the stimulus that the drink provides.

It was created by Dietrich Mateschitz, an industrialist of Austrian
origin who discovered the drink by chance. It happened during a business trip to Hong
Kong, when he was working at a factory that manufactured toothbrushes.

The liquid, based on a formula that contained caffeine and taurine,
caused a rage in that country. Imagine the grand success of this drink in Europe where
the product still did not exist, besides it was a superb opportunity to become an
entrepreneur.

BUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS DRINK IS ANOTHER THING:

FRANCE and DENMARK have just prohibited it as a cocktail of death, due
to its vitamin components mixed with GLUCURONOLACTONE’, a highly dangerous chemical,
which was developed by the United States Department of Defense during 60 years to
stimulate the moral of the troops based in VIETNAM, which acted like a hallucinogenic
drug that calmed the stress of the war.

But their effects in the organism were so devastating, that it was
discontinued, because of the high index of cases of migraines, cerebral tumors and
diseases of the liver that was evident in the soldiers who consumed it.

And in spite of it, in the can of RED BULL you can still find as one of
its components: GLUCURONOLACTONE, categorized medically as a stimulant.

But what it does not say on the can of RED BULL, are the consequences
of its consumption, and that has forced us to place a series of WARNINGS:

1. It is dangerous to take it if you do not engage in physical exercise
afterwards, since its energizing function accelerates the heart rate and can cause a
sudden attack.

2. You run the risk of undergoing a cerebral hemorrhage, because RED
BULL contains components that dilute the blood so that the heart utilizes less energy to
pump the blood, and thus be able to deliver physical force with less effort being
exerted.

3. It is prohibited to mix RED BULL with alcohol, because the mixture
turns the drink into a “Deadly Bomb” that attacks the liver directly, causing
the affected area never to regenerate anymore.

4. One of the main components of RED BULL is the B12 vitamin, used in
medicine to recover patients who are in a coma; from here the hypertension and the state
of excitement which is experienced after taking it, as if you were in a drunken state.

5. The regular consumption of RED BULL triggers off symptoms in the
form of a series of irreversible nervous and neuronal diseases.

CONCLUSION: It is a drink that should be prohibited in the countries of
the Caribbean and Latin America, (and the entire world) as it is already waking up other
nations because when it is mixed with alcohol it creates a time bomb for the human body,
mainly between innocent adolescents and adults with little experience.
