ONE OF THE STORIES OF 911

A man from Norfolk, VA called a local radio station to share this on Sept 11th, 2003. 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 could, 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 just sit by or; 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 goodbye.

Then something happened. About two months ago, I was sitting at home 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 told 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 lead 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 mother and baby could live."

This story should help us to realize two things: First - that though it has been several years since the attacks, we should never let it become a mere tragic memory. And second - but most important - 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 with those you love and care for.

You may never know the impact it may have on someone ...... God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever.

I don't buy this story at all. I think it is 100% made up. The only relevant truth is that 9-11 happened. The rest of the story I bet is completely made up nonsense to sell christianity. Way to capitalize on a tragedy. It's okay to lie for Jesus.

Of course it is made up. Americans are suckers for this kind of crap. They even buy it from their own lying governments.

Yup, it sure did but not the way that you have been told. The US government official conspiracy theory is not supported by any science, not a shred of science supports that wacky conspiracy theory.

It's silly that christians make up these lies.

Even if for a moment I were to say it's actually real. It doesn't make any sense. So they pray before the flight and mysteriously get a flat tire that ends up sparing her life? God prevented her death? Really is this the narrative you want to suggest in this story because it slaps the faces of everyone else who died on those planes and in the towers. Are we to believe everyone that died didn't pray that morning for god's protection?

It's absurd that god would spare one pregnant woman on the way to airport yet take the lives of all those other people. Then on top of this we are led to believe that the father firefighter got converted on the spot while attempting to rescue another pregnant woman? Really? Then he dies?

It's such a load of crap, I honestly feel sorry for anyone who actually thinks the story is true. But I wouldn't be surprised since it's usually believers who buy up this horse **** because they are gullible to start with.

True, but it's not only christians, though christians of many stripes make up a good chunk of the American populace.

Maybe Jesus planted the nano-thermite!

@TomTomBinks,
Nope. Jesus had no access to nanothermite. It is a solely US government-military discovery, non-commercially available explosive.

Nanoscale Chemistry Yields Better Explosives

...

At Livermore Laboratory, sol-gel chemistry-the same process used to make aerogels or "frozen smoke" (see S&TR, November/December 1995)—has been the key to creating energetic materials with improved, exceptional, or entirely new properties. This energetic materials breakthrough was engineered by Randy Simpson, director of the Energetic Materials Center; synthetic chemists Tom Tillotson, Alex Gash, and Joe Satcher; and physicist Lawrence Hrubesh.
These new materials have structures that can be controlled on the nanometer (billionth-of-a-meter) scale. Simpson explains, "In general, the smaller the size of the materials being combined, the better the properties of energetic materials.

...

Energetic materials are made in two ways. The first is by physically mixing solid oxidizers and fuels, a process that, in its basics, has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Such a process results in a composite energetic material such as black powder. The second process involves creating a monomolecular energetic material, such as TNT, in which each molecule contains an oxidizing component and a fuel component. For the composites, the total energy can be much greater than that of monomolecular materials. However, the rate at which this energy is released is relatively slow when compared to the release rate of monomolecular materials.

Monomolecular materials such as TNT work fast and thus have greater power than composites, but they have only moderate energy densities-commonly half those of composites. "Greater energy densities versus greater power—that's been the traditional trade-off," says Simpson. "With our new process, however, we're mixing at molecular scales, using grains the size of tens to hundreds of molecules. That can give us the best of both worlds-higher energy densities and high power as well."
