While in Philippi preaching, Paul and Silas came across a girl who was owned by two men. This girl was possessed by a demon which let her tell the future which made the men lot of money.
While Paul was preaching the demon began shouting that Paul and Silas were preaching the real God and the truth. Paul cast out the demon from the girl, but the men who made the money were angry at him for doing this.
They brought Paul and Silas to the rulers of the city and the men told lies about them. The rulers decided to have Paul and Silas whipped, beaten and thrown in prison.
Even in prison Paul and Silas were singing praise and praying to God.
At midnight a huge earthquake struck the prison and the doors were broken open allowing the prisoners to escape. The jailer in charge knew he’d be in trouble for this so he was about to kill himself. Paul shouted for him to stop and told him none of the prisoners had escaped.
The jailer fell at Paul’s feet and asked “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Paul told him “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved”.
The jailer and his family believe Paul’s message about Jesus and were baptised to show they had been forgiven and their lives had been changed.
