Ex-cop converts after seeing verse appear on wall

"God, are you real? I'm a cop and I need proof! So give me proof! And prove to me that the Bible is real! People say I need a relationship with Jesus, well, give me that too!"

Chris was once a policeman in Australia. But after a difficult night, and threats made to his wife Debbie, he will sink into depression. The appearance of a verse on the wall of his house will change his destiny.

In 1992, Chris arrests and charges a man who committed three misdemeanors in the same night. A few days later, this man will call home, meet his wife and utter death threats.

Chris will then fall into an infernal spiral: depression, sick leave, loss of his job.

"I got very depressed and angry. My wife put up with a lot, but she was wonderfully supportive. She was a Christian and she prayed for me."

One day he cries out to God.

"God, are you real? I'm a cop and I need proof! So give me proof! And prove to me that the Bible is real! People say I need a relationship with Jesus, well, give me that too!"

Two weeks later, he again cries out to God, “Well, where are you, my God?”. There, he hears a voice behind him say "Jean".

"There was nobody else there. I said, 'Is that you, God?' I remembered that John was a New Testament book, so I said to God, 'Do you want me to read it? Where do you want me to read it?'"

"You won't believe this," he continues, "but on the wall above me appeared three numbers: 2, 1, 1."

"I was excited," he explains, "I said to God, 'Is this chapter 2, verse 11?' Like I said, the numbers disappeared from the wall."

He takes a Bible recently offered by his wife and opens it in the book of John, chapter 2 and verse 11.

Such was, at Cana in Galilee, the first of the miraculous signs that Jesus did. He manifested his glory and his disciples believed in him.

At that moment, Chris turns to Jesus. When taking stock of his life, he explains, "Of course there have been ups and downs over the past 29 years, but overall it's been fabulous".
