Robert L. Wise has interviewed people in many states about their experiences with divine encounters. Recognizing the secular preoccupation of many, Wise presents the evidence of miracles as he discovered them. Take a good look and see what you think.
Possibly, you will be surprised to learn that according to the Pew Research Center eight out of ten Americans believe in miracles. Even half of those not affiliated with any particular faith still say miracles are possible. Belief in miracles is on the rise because people are frantically seeking meaning. With the political nonsense that is omnipresent and increased talk of nuclear weapons in North Korea, citizens need hope as seldom before. Miracles supply an answer for that desperate need.
The recently released movie Miracles From Heaven touched that vacuum in many hearts. The story came from a true life experience that happened in Burleson, Texas on the Beam family farm.
Kevin and Christy Beam had a nine-year-old daughter Annabel. Devout Baptist, the Beams believed in the possibility of miracles, but didn’t think one would happen to them. Of course, they prayed everyday and considered miracles as probable, but that was it.
Annabel had been out climbing in an old hollow cottonwood tree when her food slipped. She tumbled headfirst down 30 feet. Unconscious in the bottom of the tree, no one was sure how to get her out. A rescue team struggled to find the best way to free Annabel. Finally, they broke her free while a helicopter waited to fly her for emergency treatment. The child remained unconscious.
Kevin and Christy prayed liked never before in their lives.
The doctors immediately began numerous scans to identify where surgery or similar treatment should begin. They stopped and repeated the process. They could find nothing wrong. The next morning Annabel and her stunned parents went home.
What had happened with Annabel Beam could only be described as a miracle.
If you want another jaw-dropping experience, read the Eben Alexander, M.D., account of his near-death experience in his book PROOF OF HEAVEN. A scientific and well documented account of recovering after seven days in a coma. The doctors were about to discontinue treatment when Eben opened his eyes. His journey with angelic beings will encourage your faith.
Are miracles happening today? Everywhere!
