This young man was in the right place at the right time!! I can only imagine the celestials feverishly influencing the mind of this man to look up at the exact moment to save the life of that child!



backstory:

A quick-thinking Algerian teenager has been dubbed a hero after catching a two-year-old Syrian toddler who fell from a second floor balcony. His incredible save was caught on CCTV and has been shared widely on social media.

Two-year old Doha Muhammed was playing in her apartment in the Fatih district of Istanbul, Turkey last Thursday when the unthinkable happened and she went over the edge while her mother was in the kitchen preparing a meal.

I wonder what makes you think this? While all God Fragments are connected and the Guardian Angels attempt to guide our footsteps, please remind us how the Physical Controllers or midwayers might be involved?

Read 123.4.7

There are 7 billion of us susceptible to accidental death and injury. Think about that. Please describe who might have pre-knowledge and the duty to preemptively prevent accidents.

Such beliefs perpetuate primitive beliefs in the hand of God and spirit luck and curses superstitions. Unfortunate.

"The 1,111 loyal secondary midwayers are engaged in important missions on earth. ...they are decidedly material. They exist just outside the range of mortal vision and possess sufficient latitude of adaptation to make, at will, to make human contact with what humans call "material things." These unique creatures have certain definite powers over the things of time and space..."

There are too many incidents throughout history of seemingly "miraculous" interventions to dismiss them, especially in light of what the UB says in my partial quote. I don't think such interventions happen unless personalities involved have important parts to play, beyond their personal safety. We have no right to wish for such a thing, and to be the recipient must involve massive responsibility to do the Father's will.

Peace!

You would think a midwayer could have stopped the seven year old Jesus from getting injured falling down the stairs, but they say it couldn't have been avoided even with two midwayers present, and despite Jesus' obvious importance to the world.

(1361.6) 123:4.6 There was no way in which this accident could have been prevented. It was not chargeable to neglect by the midway temporal guardians, one primary and one secondary midwayer having been assigned to the watchcare of the lad; neither was it chargeable to the guardian seraphim. It simply could not have been avoided. But this slight accident, occurring while Joseph was absent in Endor, caused such great anxiety to develop in Mary’s mind that she unwisely tried to keep Jesus very close to her side for some months.

(1361.7) 123:4.7 Material accidents, commonplace occurrences of a physical nature, are not arbitrarily interfered with by celestial personalities. Under ordinary circumstances only midway creatures can intervene in material conditions to safeguard the persons of men and women of destiny, and even in special situations these beings can so act only in obedience to the specific mandates of their superiors.

Seraphims work in conjunction with midwayers because of the latter's proximity to the human's material existence. Take a look at what we are told regarding the ministry of Seraphims:

113:5.4 (1246.3) [...] The seraphim guard you [...] They do not, therefore, intrude into the picture of human drama except in emergencies and then usually on the direct orders of their superiors.
