Death Threat

Ever had a death threat?

Iíve never experienced anything that frightening. In todayís terrorism climate, we must take any and all threats seriously. Many threats are voiced by pranksters or the mentally unbalanced; yet, others are carried out. My husband had no way of knowing if the bomb threat he received on the phone was real.

Weíve both worked for many years in broadcasting and listeners have frequently called to request their favorite records. Imagine his shock when the caller said there was a bomb in the radio station building.

Doing a night shift, he was there alone. Was he really in danger?

Soon after, he received a second call; the man told him he needed to get out of the building. He stayed; there was no bomb. It was just a prank. I donít think I would have reacted so calmly. What if heíd been wrong? I would have been left a widow with 2 young children. Apostle Paulís nephew overheard a conversation; religious leaders were conspiring to kill Paul.

The death threat was real.

ďAnd when it was day, some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they killed Paul (Acts 23:12 NKJV).Ē

Through Godís providence, the ambush was thwarted. (Acts 23:13-30).
