(Minghui.org) This incident happened recently in a village in Hebei Province on March 9, 2013. The weather was fine that day and it was not windy. The villagers got up early as usual and started their busy day.
There is a narrow dirt road located on the north side of the village. The villagers' homes are south of the road, and cornfields are on the north side. The corn had been harvested and the field was bare with only a few cornstalks left.
Suddenly a cloud of black smoke arose from the field, it became windy and flames began shooting out of the cloud. As the wind began blowing harder, the flames soared higher and rushed directly towards the south. It quickly reached the dirt road and began heading towards the villagers’ houses.
The wind began to blow even harder and with a frightening roar the flames ascended even higher. All of a sudden, a long tongue of flame leaped over the road. It looked like a fiery dragon. It flew over the roofs and landed on a villager’s yard where dozens of sheep were being held in a sheepfold. The sheepfold was quickly engulfed in flames and all sheep were on fire.
There's nothing wrong with raising sheep to feed one's family. However, two years earlier the owner of the sheep was paid by the regime to remove Falun Gong practitioners’ truth clarification stickers. He did this with a perching knife. Those stickers were posted by practitioners to help awaken people to the truth about the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong.
The short messages on the stickers were, “Falun Dafa is good,” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and “Quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to be safe as heaven will eliminate the CCP.”
Although practitioners kept telling the sheep owner the facts about Falun Gong and kindly suggested that he should not do that, he didn’t listen. Worse still, he disrespected Falun Gong by scraping off the truth-clarifying stickers.
A person who grows up in the same village and has the same ancestors as other villagers should be happy to see his fellow villagers becoming healthy, strong and kind after practicing Falun Gong. However, the owner of the sheep disregarded this and wrongly believed the CCP’s lies. In its pay, he treated practitioners as his enemy.
Despite his deliberate ruthlessness, many villagers including practitioners, hurried over to help. They put out the fire and removed the dead and blackened sheep from the sheepfold.
Someone suddenly shouted, “The inside of the house is on fire too!” Everyone quickly rushed over and put out the house fire as well.
The fire was finally out. However, dozens of the man's sheep had either died or were disabled and the sheepfold collapsed.
The villagers gathered and began talking about the astonishing event. One said, “More than 20 places were on fire in the village. But this one is the worst of all.”
Others said that the fire was really strange, as it seemed to have eyes; those people who practiced Falun Gong or who didn’t practice but had quit the CCP organizations were all fine and suffered no losses.
The sheep owner has two neighbors whose houses are located right next to his, on either side. Both of these neighbors practice Falun Gong and their houses didn’t catch fire at all.
All things have spirits. When a person is ruthless and cruelly harms others, retribution for his evil deeds can come to him at any time.
