MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view.
The corona-virus pandemic has made it impossible for me to make the contacts to continue reporting extraordinary happenings to ordinary people. However, I’ve got a mail bag of these great stories so I’m recycling some that you probably never read. Here’s an example.
Patty Sills’s condition was diagnosed as Tardive Dystoma which meant her neck muscles continually contracted and pulled her head to one side. Patty had no control over her neck and was in constant pain. The condition made her spine bulge. She could be medicated but not cured. Doctors told Patty she would have this condition the rest of her life.
Patty told me that she didn’t want to live anymore. She couldn’t work or pursue any hobbies because she was so uncomfortable. Patty was certain she would be better off dead. Her voice sounded desperate as she described her deteriorating emotional condition.
Having grown up in the Roman Catholic Church, Patty had lots of problems with church procedures. Organized religion only imparted other issues. Consequently, she was particularly skeptical about TV healers and churches in general.
Leslie, a young woman who had a reputation for talking with angels and praying for hurting people, was introduced to Patty. The whole idea seemed absurd, but Patty was desperate.
Leslie asked Patty to lay flat on a table and she began to pray. Leslie’s hands became so hot that heat radiated through Patty’s body. When Leslie moved to her neck, Patty went into a convulsion and felt outside herself. She had to have help to stand.
The next day everything changed. Her incurable condition completely disappeared. If you ask her if she believes in miracles, she will tell you that she is living proof they still happen.
Since I began working on this subject, I have been amazed at how many stories I have turned up. They often come from people I know who have been reluctant to talk about their experiences that powerfully reordered their lives. In the contemporary world immersed in scientism and secularization, the idea that Divinity still reaches into everyday life and radically changes physical problems is considered nonsense. In the average mainline church, no one has seen a miracle or expects to encounter one. The subject remains closed.
But so were a number of other practices that are now totally accepted.
In the late ‘60s when I came out of seminary, people who claimed such cures were considered on the crazy side. Consequently, talk of miracles has been off the table for a long time. In these blogs we will be exploring many stories like Patty’s and will hopefully help you discover how to become a part of this new revolution that the Holy Spirit is bringing to the world. Miracles still happen!
