I have just tried doing some research to find if this is true, then I came to a realisation.
If I found out that its not true, does that mean I will allow myself to not change my ways for the better? Does it mean I can still go on making my mistakes because its not true?
If I found it to be true, yes it would be a miracle but why do I/did I have to wait for a miracle before I acted in a holy way?
If the story inspired you, then act. It is a calling and if it spoke to you, listen.
Why is this a big surprise to everyone? I mean, we read from the Holy Book that Jesus is Coming Again and soon. So why are we so moved when hearing this now?
My answer for this question is, it doesn't matter whether it's true or not. Of course, we all believe that Jesus is coming again and He is coming soon..
In addition, let us recall Jesus words in Matthew 24 - 25: "No one knows the day or hour, not even the Son of Man," and that some will claim he is in the desert or in the mountains, "but do not go to look for me" because he will come in clouds of glory and every eye shall see his coming when he does. False prophets will arise and deceive many - indeed many false prophets are here today - wolves in sheep's clothing, and others who have made prophecies that have not come true. Jesus warns us to beware of false prophets and we are taught that if even one prophecy does not come true, the prophet is not from God but from Satan.
There is an email circulating with this information and persons want to know the validity of it.
After much research the following answers are available. This particular piece of chain letter "fact" came from Brazil from accounts. Research says that Pastor Gladston Reis was responsible for this legend reaching the US. According to the email chain, this child had an impossible birth defect and died within hours of correcting the defect. To date, there are no pictures of this phoenomenon. While such a story might be possible? One must consider how this same God used a child to deliver a message and then let the child die.
In my opinion, this is an urban legend.
