'Don't Do It. Jesus Loves You': Good Samaritan Stops Man from Committing Suicide after Feeling God Calling Him to Bridge

Tré Goins-Phillips : May 15, 2019  Faithwire.com

"This happened for a reason. This is not by chance. I can't not share this. Because this is totally God..." -Collin Dozier

"It felt like somebody knocking on your front door. You gotta go answer it," Dozier told Faithwire. "It was just crystal clear."

He traveled the rest of the way home, but then hopped on his electric scooter and headed back to Lesner Bridge in Virginia Beach, where he found a man contemplating suicide.

"I didn't want to get too close to him," Dozier said in a video testimony shared by his church. "I got about 10-15 feet away from him and I leaned over the railing next to him, and I said, 'Hey man, what's going on?' No response."

The troubled 27-year-old man didn't even look at Dozier. But he didn't give up, instead trying his best to encourage the young man: "I said, 'Don't do it. Jesus loves you. He's here for you.'"

"The only thing I could possibly do was turn to the Lord and pray," Dozier recalled. "So I got closer to him a little bit, and I reached out my hand, and I said, 'Lord Jesus, please speak to this guy. Open his eyes right now. Let him see Your love.' I know when times are tough, that's the only thing to possibly turn to."

After about 20 minutes went by, according to WAVY-TV, police finally showed up. When they arrived, the troubled man flipped to the other side of the bridge's railing, facing the water.

The man—who claimed he had a gun—kept threatening to shoot both Dozier and the police officer. But that didn't stop the Good Samaritan, who kept inching closer and closer to the man.

"I lunged for it," Dozier said. "I went around his arms, and I pinched my elbows in so his arms wouldn't flail and reach for anything. I stepped up on the railing and I sucked him back and I threw him down on the pavement"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
