MIRACLES NEVER CEASE ~ DO YOU HAVE AN EXPERIENCE TO SHARE? Robert Wise would be delighted to learn about your divine intervention. If you have a story to share, please contact him at revwise@att.net. He’s looking forward to hearing from you.

Recently a former colleague shared the story of what happened in an Ash Wednesday Service several years ago. Church members were asked to write on a piece of paper some issue they needed to deal with during this season of the year. After they wrote their need, the paper was taken to the front of the church and dropped in a bowl of fire. One particular woman in the congregation had been sexually and physically abused by her father and couldn’t forgive him. She had not seen her father for two decades yet she knew she needed to forgive him and release  the hostility she held in her heart. With her hand trembling, she wrote “I forgive.”

Standing before the flame, she finally knew her anger was resolved and she dropped the piece of paper into the fire. As she watched the paper burn, the woman knew her hostility was resolved.

A week later the letter came to her house.

Her father had written that on that same night he was in a hospital miles away and was dying. He wrote that so many times he had sought forgiveness for how he treated her, but he couldn’t get over feeling guilty and remorseful. Knowing that he didn’t have much time left, he prayed for forgiveness once more.

With tears running down his cheeks, he looked up and saw a far-off light began to appear in the window. The glow became brighter and larger until the light filled the entire window frame. The radiance kept increasing in size. Finally, the man recognized a face in the midst of the splendor of light. He could barely speak as he looked at the divine countenance,. “Forgive me,” was all he could say.

A voice spoke and a hand extended toward him. “Here is your forgiveness,” the voice said and handed him a burnt piece of paper.

WHEN CONFUSION MATTERS

BLOG 68 January 15, 2018 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.

Followers of this blog have figured out by now that I am challenging the current social view that all we have is a physical world. Week after week, you’ve been presented the evidence for another dimension that breaks in with power and renewal. Moreover, my research further suggests that no special class or type of person is required to experience the empowerment of this additional realm often called eternity. In fact, the major requirement is not expertise or special capacity. The issue usually is need.

Don’t worry. These blogs will continue walking down that path.

A less obvious insight is the discovery that often people experience confusion in understanding what the wind of God is blowing their way. They may have the right answer without grasping what the heavenly response actually means. We have to work at understanding what the impact from the “other side” actually means. It IS worth the effort.

In previous blogs I’ve talked about the ministry of Leslie Draper, the counselor who works with angels. Leslie works with the eternal dimension everyday of the week. Recently, she shared a story with me that makes the point.

Mary was a lovely woman who needed a word from the Lord. She wanted to know if the angels could tell her anything. This was her first session and she waited quietly for Leslie to say something, anything.

Leslie kept hearing, “Mother Theresa” and was sure she was misreading the situation. She paused to reassure Mary that the angels were pleased that she had come and were thankful she was so kind and generous to people in need. As Leslie was talking, she once again heard, “Mother Theresa.”

Leslie felt frustrated and didn’t know what to say because she couldn’t conceive of any connection between Mary and Mother Theresa. Finally, Leslie threw up her hands and said, “I don’t know what to say, but the angels keep saying ‘Mother Theresa.’

Mary reached over and gently patted Leslie’s hand. She said, “My mother is Theresa.”

Mary went on to learn that the angel was conveying her mother’s love and appreciation  for her being a caring, compassionate, and selfless person. Mary was blessed by the exchange.

Don’t give up practicing listening, receiving, and believing. What today seems obscure will in time become clear.  You know that old saying, practice makes perfect.

MEET LESLIE Part 3

BLOG 39 May 8, 2017 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.

Leslie is a graduate of East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma and attended law school for a year but a severe relapse in her Multiple Sclerosis condition ended her studies. Always highly intuitive, she had natural insight. For a period of time, Leslie worked as a Social Worker with the Child Welfare Department in Oklahoma. But that was only a backdrop for what she does today.

Leslie receives angelic messages and passes them on to struggling people.

For example, a lady came to see Leslie and was obviously skeptical. She would tell Leslie nothing about herself and only asked if the angels had any information for her. The lady sat across the desk with a look that almost dared Leslie to say something.

When Leslie is helping people, she makes it clear that she personally has nothing to offer. In a straightforward manner, she explains that Leslie Draper is highly fallible. All she can do is convey an angelic message that she probably doesn’t understand. In my private conversations with Leslie, she explained it is possible for her “to mess up” what the angels are communicating. Sometimes she may seem to have “static” in her mind and be a faulty link. However, what the angels are communicating is never wrong. All of this understanding was communicated to the lady.

The client listened and silently nodded while her eyes conveyed doubt.

As she usually does, Leslie leaned sideways and silently listened while nodding slightly as if overhearing a conversation in the next room. (She says the angels speak very softly) Finally, Leslie straightened and told the lady that the angels said, “Find the ring.”

The women’s face turned white. Her mouth dropped. She appeared ready to run for the door. Startled, Leslie had no idea what had occurred.

“What’s wrong?” Leslie asked. “I have no idea what the answer meant.”

The lady caught her breath. “Twenty years ago. I was going to marry a man who died one week before our wedding. I was devastated and of course, no rings were exchanged. Recently, I started wishing I had a ring simply to wear. I never found a ring that I liked, but I kept the search a secret. No one knew. Today, the angels told me to ‘find the ring.’”

Leslie’s ministry was authenticated for this doubter.

Do angels attempt to help us live our lives? Leslie’s answer is an absolute “yes.” While many people will not have the depth of experience that she has, they are still directed by angelic beings.

Our need? Practice tuning in!
