Paul and Silas were unjustly beaten and imprisoned (Acts 16:22-24) for casting out a fortune telling demon (Acts 16:18-19). That night in jail as they were singing hymns and praying there was an earthquake and their shackles were loosed and the doors opened! (Acts 16:25-26) When the jailer woke he saw the doors open he pulled out his sword to kill himself, but Paul stopped him (Acts 16:27-29). When the jailer asked them what he must do to be saved (Acts 16:30)...
...they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." Acts 16:31There are a lot of incredible things that happen in this story.
- A fortune telling demon.
