Hallelujah! A new Jonah was born more than 50 years ago but neither the favoured one nor the world took notice until the lord’s glory shone on him. A Spanish fisherman who has been identified as Luigi Marquez was fishing in the sea when he went missing and was swallowed by a huge whale.
Marquez‘s relatives lost hope, thinking he was dead and gone forever. But they were damn wrong.
God saved his life to prove He never changes, for those who believe and even many others who don’t.
The fishermen spent three days in the belly of a whale.

Marquez, 56, returned home after surviving what can be described as “one in a million” death. He gave a detailed account of the mysterious incident, saying his boat capsized off the coast of Spain during a violent storm.
A team of Spanish coast guards carried out intense searches but there was no sign of him so they concluded he was dead, according to the World Daily News Report .
The new Jonah’s wife, Penelope Marquez, spoke with reporters, saying: “This is truly a miracle! Saint Mary of Jesus has heard our prayers. I prayed and I prayed and I never lost faith, and the Lord has brought me back my precious Luigi.
Juan Cristobal Miguel, a marine biologist at the University of San Petrina, said: “It is not the first time in human history that such stories arise.
“Only last year, two scuba divers off the coast of Portugal lived the same story after being accidentally swallowed by a blue whale. Fortunately, they were immediately expelled of the giant mammal’s body.
“It is surely extraordinary that this man survived in the belly of a blue whale for so long, he is obviously a very sturdy man and extremely lucky.”

Experts confirm that the blue whale, which is the largest animal ever known to have lived, feeds almost exclusively on krill. The mammal can consume up to 40 million krill in a day. Surprisingly, the blue whales are of no threat to human beings.
Meanwhile, in his own account of the miraculos survival, Marquez told reporters:
“This great beast swallowed me the morning after the storm.
“It is the most frightening thing I have ever lived. Everything was pitch black and I was shivering cold.
