‘Who makes the nations tremble?’
Those who who believe that providence ought never to be tempted should perhaps start circulating a warning that has just emerged from earthquake-ravaged Nepal.
It takes the form of a video showing three young Christian men singing the hymn “Almighty, Unchangeable God” at a house church meeting.
According to this report, at the precise moment that they sang the words “Who makes the nations tremble?” Nepal’s devastating earthquake struck.
Second later, screams rang out as the room shook. The Christians called upon the name of the Lord.
“Let’s pray!” one called out.
“Lord, You are there!” another said.
“Jesus! Jesus!” a third proclaimed.
Within a minute, the ground stopped shaking and the people calmly moved outside.
Jason and Charity Woon, a missionary couple in Nepal, posted the footage to their Facebook page on Thursday.
Meanwhile, it is reported by Daily Life‘s Ruby Hamad that within hours of the catastrophic earthquake striking Nepal, evangelical Christians took to social media to express both their sorrow at all those who had perished without “knowing Jesus” and their hopes that the tragedy would propel the mostly-Hindu population to embrace the Gospel.
It is one thing to merely share these sentiments, however tasteless they may be. But it’s quite another to use such a tragedy to actively spread a particular ideology as J Lavey Prabu, of the India-based Super-Life mission, did when he tweeted, ‘Already our mission workers are there to help the people and tell them the goodness of Jesus.’
