THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBER

THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBER

They tell the story of a mountain climber, who desperate to conquer the Aconcagua, initiated his climb after years of preparation. But he wanted the glory to himself, therefore, he went up alone. He started climbing and it was becoming later, and later. He did not prepare for camping but decided to keep on going. Soon it got dark...

Night fell with heaviness at a very high altitude. Visibility was zero. Everything was black. There was no moon, and the stars were covered by clouds. As he was climbing a ridge at about 100 meters from the top, he slipped and fell. Falling rapidly he could only see blotches of darkness that passed. He felt a terrible sensation of being sucked in by gravity.

He kept falling....and in those anguishing moments good and bad memories passed through his mind. He thought certainly he would die. But then he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half. Yes!! Like any good mountain climber he had staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist.

In those moments of stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout, "HELP ME GOD", "HELP ME!"

All of a sudden he heard a deep voice from heaven..."What do you want me to do?"

"SAVE ME"

"Do you REALLY think that I can save you?"

"OF COURSE, MY GOD"

"Then cut the rope that is holding you up."

There was another moment of silence and stillness. The man just held tighter to the rope.

The rescue team says that the next day they found, a frozen mountain climber hanging strongly to a rope... TWO FEET OFF THE GROUND.

How about you? How trusting are you in that rope? Why don't you let it go? I tell you, God has great and marvelous thing for you.
CUT THE ROPE AND SIMPLY TRUST IN HIM...

Wonderful Testimony By Joshua Ebenezer



Call received from my good friend who is also having a same model mobile phone (HTC Touch) asking for data cable.

I have asked him to collect and also to help me in backing up my phone contacts and other information’s, since I have not done it for years.

He helped me in installing “Active Sync” and transferred all the phone contacts.

After sometime I have realized my phone book completely missing.

The spirit of lord enabled me to make the following confessions;

Brother, some years back you have taught me how God had numbered our hairs, in such case, he must have counted by contacts also. Not to worry, every thing will be resorted back. Also, if the phone would have lost / broken then? God is in control. Not to worry. He will surely restore all contacts what ever required and will remove all others (may be a process of pruning)

Still, brother tried to locate the deleted file and could not succeed.

Evening I met one of my friend who is an advocate in Chennai, came to Mumbai for an official matter. I did even shared with him about the phone book testimony, as to how god helping us to anchor upon him, rather phone book contacts etc.. he then left to Chennai.

Same day around mid-night while was about to go to bed, I have received a text message from the brother, asking me to check “Microsoft outlook delete box” it shows this brother trying to recollect as to how he can restore my phone book by checking various sites, and he is concerned about my phone book it seems..(else having a marathon next day, why some one should send a SMS at midnight?)

- I could restore few recently called no’s and other incoming call no’s.
- After finishing Mumbai Marathon-2009 in the morning (did not go to church) came back home with heavy head-ache and tired.
- Slept for a while and took a flight to Chennai around 5.30pm. Airlines upgraded me to business class (may be the lord knows I need some good rest it seems)
- During flight, I opened by Diary and wrote all the happenings till that moment.
- After landing received by my brother at Chennai and we were discussion about spiritual things, during course of our discussion, I did mentioned to him about the mobile phone book, the learning's..
- My advocate friend who came to Mumbai asked me to meet him up near a place called Nungambakkam, on the way I got down from the car for a purpose and there my mobile phone fell down, without noticing I went away from the place and later realized about phone missing. Immediately took a turn and reached out the same place where I halted and I could not see any trace of my mobile phone, bring a crowed and busy road, I firmly made up my mind to forget about the mobile, because this pda phone protected with multi password and no one could enter into the phone book to keep the phone go check for number (in case if he wish to return the phone also)


For a while it was a disappointing, then I strengthened myself in lord and
- said to my brother, God is in control and he knows every thing and he will turn every thing for his glory, may be he does not want me to have this phone for a reason…and I dropped him and took a turn to my home (it’s 9.30pm)
- I had a spare phone with my old corporate connection, I kept this phone activated) and went to a Fuel Station to fill up some petrol for next day use.
- Near Parry’s I drove into a IBT fuel station and requested them to put fuel for Rs.500/- and tendered payment. While I was about to move out one man ran towards me and asked whether my car runs on Petrol or Diesel? I replied Petrol; he apologized with a humble tone and told me, Sir, my staff filled up Diesel instead of Petrol…!
- I was just silent for a while and called up one brother for guidance, he asked me to leave the car without igniting the engine.
- Fuel station staff, agreed to clean up the tank next day with a trained mechanic help and then to refuel petrol, also they have arranged an auto for me to get dropped at home.
- Here again I can see the lord’s hand, if only the staff would not stop me, surely I would have drove the car with alternate fuel and might have faced a big damage en route which must have caused huge problem for the engine, since diesel contains more sulphur. God is good !
- I reached him and read the book in Old Testament
- It talked about Moses discussion with the lord and seeking lord’s forgiveness and mercy on the people of Israelites when they violated the laws by creating some idols for them when moses went to meet up with the lord, and the intercession by moses while the lord’s wrath of god was about to come upon the Israelites.
- I am getting ready in the morning to go to office.
- In the blues I got a call in my old mobile no, some one introduced him self by the name hassif (not sure about the spelling) working for rauthor biriyani center, requested me to come and collect my mobile phone.
- With much surprise, I asked how did he managed to locate my old no, he replied, there is a display during the phone lock “owner; Joshua Ebenezer – mobile no; 9920747909” can be seen, with which he called me up.
- I do not know how to respond, tears started rolling and I could not stop telling, how the lord is good to me.
- He asked me to come to the same place around 7.30pm. I agreed to meet him there also collected his mobile no.
- I was fully charged with an unexplainable joy and left home and started proclaiming about the lord to all the people …started from some one from the end of street, auto driver, office colleague, customs officer, discourages believers, a shop keeper with some alignment in both hands, two drunkards.
- After completing my office work, in the evening I went to the same place (where I have lost my phone) and called up this gentleman, he agreed to reach out me within 10 min and did not turn up, later his mobile also switched off. I stood there from 8pm to 11pm. During this time I met 3 people and shared the love of god, one is the shop keeper and other two are the drunkards.
- Since, I have to take a flight to Delhi next day early morning 6.45am, I have to leave the place.
- Still with a partial disappointment, partial joy, the only thing which worries me is, I called up everyone and told them about, how I am going to receive my phone back and the lord’s mercy, now how and what I would say to them.
I informed everyone officially, that I have lost the phone and continued by business, with one difficulty not having phone no’s.(which I am sure every reader of this testimony can understand)
- Evening around 4pm, my advocate friend called me from Chennai, informed me to send a complaint to Chennai Police commissioner, I did sent this office one mail explaining the sequence of events in detail and sent a mail, also I thought of calling the person (who has the phone) from my office landline and I could see the phone started ringing, but, there was no response from the other end.
- I again called him up from my old mobile no (which he can recognize) and he did not lift the call.
- After few min, I received a call back…the same voice.. same person informed me that he could not reach out the other day ….since, he met with an accident and also some problem in his family ( mother not keeping well)
- Asked me to come down within 30min to collect the phone.
- Since, I came back to Mumbai, I had requested my brother to go there and to give him a cash reward and to get the mobile, he did it within an hour’s time and now the mobile is with us.
- How great he is to me to show his faithfulness!
- What can we do to him in return, take up the cup of salvation and follow him till the end.
Taste and see that the lord is good. Yes, it takes for a while to see the SUN, but, it will surely rise upon us and will remove all darkness around us.
