MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Robert Wise explores the world of Divine intervention from an objective point of view. Can 21st Century people believe that the hand of God touches people in today’s world?
Read and you’ll find new insights.
The ultimate objective for this Blog is to help restore a ministry that the New Testament suggests should be constant. Regardless of various theological debates, the work of healing, restoration, life re-orienting events, hearing the Divine communicate, etc. have never stopped. Unfortunately, many churches just aren’t up to date.
The Old and New Testaments are filled with these amazing stories. The Red Sea split for the children of Israel and they were miraculously fed by manna in the wilderness. Jesus turned water into wine, stilled the storm, and fed the five thousand with two fish and five loaves. An exorcism at Capernaum liberated a man possessed by evil. As the stories unfolded, paralytics walked and the blind regained their sight. The raising of Lazarus and Jesus’s own resurrection were the ultimate expressions of the miraculous.
While skeptics have offered various natural explanations for many of these experiences, the stories stand on their own and have done so for 2,000 years. The Christian era records that the divine expressions continued to occur. For forty days after the resurrection, the appearance of the risen Christ touched more than 500 people. The conversion of Saul into Paul was one of the major milestones in the beginning of the universal Church. Held in jail and bound in chains, Peter was awakened by an angel and led out of the prison. The angelic visitation saved him from King Agrippa. The on-going stories of the apostles related many such events.
I became interested in this subject because of a totally unexpected situation. When I was in college, a friend had invited me to attend a gathering called Camp Farthest Out, a name given from the place where the movement began. The group emphasized love and healing prayer as well as meeting a variety of needs. I was a college student who certainly wasn’t into that type of expression, but I was in for a big surprise.
During an afternoon prayer session, I witnessed a woman recover sight in an eye that had been blind since she was five-years old. I was shocked, but knew I had stumbled on to some type of paradigm I couldn’t explain. No one in my university would have believed in such a thing, but I had seen it with my own eyes.
Over the years that followed, I started collecting similar events that I am sharing in these blogs. I hope you are intrigued and may feel challenged to explore the possibilities that could exist around you. You may be surprised to discover that these events are still happening in your backyard!
I’d like to hear your experience if you’ve encountered a Divine intervention. Please write me at:
