Six Bullets Fired at 10 Feet
He received his theological training from Southwestern Assemblies of God University, a Bachelor of Arts degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and earned his Masters Degree from North Texas University.
Pastor John Hagee recounts:
There was a man who walked into my church during a Bible study. It was on a Wednesday night, and he came in. He was carrying a loaded six-shooter, and he walked to the front of the church and he roared like a wild animal and said, "I've come to shoot you to prove that Satan has more power than Jesus Christ."
I held up my Bible and said, "This book says that no weapon formed against me shall prosper."
The man became infuriated and said, "I'm going to kill you on the count of three. Get on your knees and beg for your life."
I said, "I will not because the Lord is my protector."
The armed man said, "I'm going to shoot you on the count of three." He lied. He started shooting on the count of two, emptying the gun at me from a distance of eight to ten feet.
By the grace and mercy of God missed every shot. He ran out of the building and was knocked down, apprehended, sent a few days later to the asylum for the criminally insane. Ninety days later a team of psychiatrists pronounced him ready to take his place in society and he went home and immediately climbed the highest tree in his backyard and hung himself.
When the police investigated the crime scene, they used corded rope to see the trajectory of the fired shots. Three shots went to one side and three to the other side of where I stood. I could just imagine an angel standing in front of me batting those bullets to one side then the other.
Six bullets fired, not one hit the man standing 8-10 feet away... God is good!
