When This Pastor’s Life Was Nearly Taken By Bizarre Accident, an Unexpected Miracle Occurred

Speechless

Published

on

Church should be a place to come alive in Christ, not a place to die. For one Fort Worth, Texas pastor, however, the latter came very close to being a reality.

When Pastor Evan Risher was ringing in the new year with his congregation and some powerful preaching, a strange sound caught him off-guard.

“It sounded almost like a whirlwind,” Risher shared with NBC5, said pointing to the ceiling above the stage of Ramp Church.

Looking at the footage, I thought the bullet went behind my head but if you look closely…(swipe left) • I was actually one step away from walking into the space where the bullet actually landed. • Thank you Jesus! In tears man…that’s crazy! 😭 🙏🏾

In video captured of the incident, Pastor Risher is in the middle of what seems to be a gripping ‘watch night’ sermon when a loud thud interrupts him. Immediately, the church’s armed security guards whisked Pastor Risher off the stage to check him over.

“When they rushed me off the stage and checked the premises they found this bullet on the stage,” Risher revealed, holding a .40 caliber bullet that shot through the ceiling.

At first, the 300 people in the congregation were shocked and scared. Undaunted and unharmed, however, Pastor Risher resumed preaching, grasping the bullet that nearly ended his life, and the church erupted into praise once more.

“I was speechless, I was scared,” Risher later recalled in an interview. “It shook me, but it didn’t break me.”

The source of the stray bullet will likely remain a mystery. Although authorities initiated an investigation, NBC5 reported that the incident at Ramp Church was just one of 63 calls the local police received of “shots fired” on New Year’s Eve.

For their part, Risher said that Ramp Church will look into bumping up their ‘watch night’ service by an hour or two, something many other North Texas churches have done, in order to avoid possible problems like this as the rest of the neighborhood begins participating in rowdier, more dangerous ways to celebrate at midnight.

“There has to be another way to have fun, to bring in the New Year,” Risher said.

“It’s kind of ironic to call a moment like this a special moment,” Risher continued. In spite of the fear this stray bullet caused in that moment, Risher says he remains steadfast in Ramp Church’s calling to serve the DFW area. “I believe wholeheartedly that God called us to this area of Fort Worth.”

As a reminder of that night and a symbol of God’s incredible power over life and death, Risher says he plans to keep the bullet in his office: “…Whenever I’m ever having a day where I’m feeling ungrateful,” he said, “I’m going to remember the value of life.”

Public Trust in Mueller Probe Plummets in New Polling

This is BAD NEWS for Mr. Mueller, who’s longstanding and widespread investigation may or may not be nearing an end.

Published

Robert Mueller

For months upon months, the American people have been wearing a rather large albatross around their figurative neck.

For you see, in the shadows of Capitol Hill lurks Robert Mueller:  The Special Counsel tasked, originally, with finding evidence of collusion between the 2016 Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government.

So far, this boogeyman of the GOP has done little but annoy some of the outer fringes of Trump’s former inner-circle, and in no connection to Russia, the Kremlin, or Vladimir Putin yet.  This has led a great many Americans to cast their own doubts on the Mueller probe, wondering instead if this is all but a “witch hunt”, out to gather any and all dirt necessary to keep President Trump from winning reelection.

New polling suggests that more and more Americans are finding themselves in this world of doubt.

Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans now agree with President Trump’s contention that he has been the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Despite that, the survey shows a nation that remains skeptical of Trump’s honesty and deeply divided by his leadership. A 52 percent majority say they have little or no trust in the president’s denials that his 2016 campaign colluded with Moscow in the election that put him in the Oval Office.

But here’s the kicker…

What’s more, Trump’s relentless attacks on Mueller and his inquiry have taken a toll on the special counsel’s credibility. Now, 28 percent say they have a lot of trust in the former FBI director’s investigation to be fair and accurate. That’s the lowest level to date, and down five points since December.

There are conflicting reports as to the status of Mueller’s investigation, with dueling tales of crescendo and climax appearing nearly daily in the news.

There are some mysteries that the human race may never truly get to the bottom of, and that’s okay.

Now it seems as though one of England’s most sinister mysteries has been solved.

A blood-covered shawl found at one of the murder scenes is believed to contain DNA from both butchered victim Catherine Eddowes and the world’s most infamous serial killer.

Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University conducted genetic tests on the sample long-thought to have belonged to the Ripper himself, who they now believe to be Pole Aaron Kosminski.

The process used was painstaking, but for the sake of accuracy.

“We describe for the first time systematic, molecular level analysis of the only surviving physical evidence linked to the Jack the Ripper murders,” the authors  wrote in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

This is also the second time that Kosminski was scientifically linked to the shawl by DNA.
