THE MODERN BIBLE JONAH

The Modern Bible Jonah, is the South African marine conservationist who has narrowly survived after being caught in the jaws of a whale. Rainer Schimpf, 51, was swept into the mouth of a large Bryde’s whale off the coast of the South African town of Port Elizabeth while snorkelling and filming a sardine run last month. Looming up out of darkness below came a Bryde’s whale shooting up into the ball of fish, gulping all in its path, as he told AFP, adding that his legs were hanging from mammal’s mouth during incident at end of February. And Rainer Schimpf, said he went back into the water straight after incident. Schimpf’s wife, Silke, a photographer watched on in horror from their boat, chartered to watch the sardines which creates a marine feeding frenzy off Africa’s southern coast. “I felt pressure around my waist and I immediately knew what happened. It accidentally included me in its mouth together with its main meal the sardines.” Schimpf, an award-winning conservationist with 20 years’ experience, said the ordeal lasted a “matter of seconds”rather than three nights Jonah spent in whale’s stomach, according to the Bible story.Rainer Schimpf, who said he went back into the water straight after the incident.Whale realised mistake so opens mouth releasing me. I was washed out with what felt like tonnes of water from its mouth,” he said. Bryde’s whales can weigh up to 30 tons when mature and typically eat krill and fish. When he finally reached the surface he took a breath and rejoined fellow snorkelers who were unaware of the unfolding drama. “We swam back to the vessel, climbed up and checked if I and the camera were OK with no broken bones, no cracked ribs all was good,” he said. I was so “Pumped up with adrenaline and not wanting to miss the bait ball action, I went back into the sea this time looking for sharks,” he added with a smile. Schimpf extensively documented Orcas killing dolphins and their hunting behaviour. Is an authority on sardine tracking and predators that follow the sardine runs. Schimpf is undeterred following his narrow escape, telling AFP that “if I was to be reborn, I would like to come back as a whale.” Like Jonah’s miracle another story of modern event happened to this woman fished in sea. 15523944402621616656549.jpgThis miracle happened in Ghana when fishermen caught this woman alive in the sea trapped in the net while fishing. The woman said a stranger took her to a beach in a taxi so it’s a miracle that she survived three days in sea. She was free to go for refusing to turn to a mermaid. She is a modern-day Jonah found in the deep-sea waters and so survived human ritual sacrifice gone wrong. Said she met a stranger who took taxi and asked any nearby hotel with a seafront beach. In taxi to hotel nearby he administered substance to numb her senses she found herself inside the sea. Then a mermaid told her to join her in the sea but she refused so was told she must leave the sea. It was then she found herself in the net caught by the fishermen in Ghana. She was sacrificed by the stranger who thinks her life thrown away into the sea will be offering to gain the ritual money called sakawa. Lazy people want money for doing nothing deceived to murder innocent victims for ‘money’ rituals. Not knowing they are recruited by the devil to be destroyed by committing murder. God’s Creation will be given account for on judgement day and go to hell if they do not repent. Do hard work, live within your means it’s the best policy for your life not envy and jealousy to copy other people. The root of all evil is the greedy LOVE of money by those who do not love fellow human beings because evil spirits deceive them. Nobody brought anything into the world, no matter how rich they will take nothing out of world except your spirit soul back to God. So important to value all precious lives to preserve life not to kill for money. The Bible says in John 10:10 the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus comes to give life to give life more abundantly in Jesus Name. The eternal life in God’s Kingdom is more precious than all gold, silver, diamonds and rubies. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul for material things of no value in heaven?
