A FRIEND IN NEED

I am always amazed by the stories that describe the unexpected appearances of the Unexpected. Over the past few years, I shared some of these accounts that happen in all kinds of places including winter blizzards. Right now we are preparing for a “whopper” starting this week and dumping ice on the roads. That makes this a good time to remember what is possible when the cold winds blow in.

Jacinta Williams of Stuart, Florida has just such a story.

When an unexpected seizure hit her, Jacinta was terrified. With no history of epilepsy or any similar disorder, she was diagnosed with having a reaction to a prescription. While working on her job as a hair stylist, another attack knocked her on the floor still holding a bottle of hair color in her hand. Blackness swallowed her. Slowly she began to return to consciousness.

Jacinta could hear muffled voices around her. While she was struggling to regain full awareness, she could hear more voices above her. Slowly, she began to realize that someone was holding her hand. When Jacinta opened her eyes, she saw a beautiful, smiling woman with long blonde hair and sparkling eyes. Jacinta guessed the woman must be around thirty-years-old.

As the woman looked into Jacinta’s eyes, she didn’t say a word. And yet — Jacinta clearly heard her say, “Do not be afraid. Soon you will be well.”

An ambulance arrived and the paramedics started preparing her for the ride to the hospital. She looked at them and her co-workers. “Where’s the beautiful lady who held my hand.” They shook their heads, not sure of what she was talking about. No one seemed to remember such a woman being there.

Once she was in the hospital and examined, the doctors assured her that the medication hadn’t left her system yet, but just as she had heard, Jacinta was okay. Now fully recovered, she realized what had happened in her shop. The voice was lovely beyond words and the assurance had come like a warm blanket in a cold winter. The beautiful woman was no woman at all. Jacinta had met her guardian angel.

Years later, she has never had another seizure and remains a complete believer in angels. Jacinta will tell you that angels are there all the time. Pay attention!                  

And remember miracles never cease!

ENCOUNTERING AN ANGEL

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.

ENCOUNTERING AN ANGEL

For centuries there has been an unfortunate disdain among Christians for Jews. The conclusion was that Jewish people don’t experience the miraculous as Christians do. Would God hear their prayers? Oh, surely not! Sorry, not only is that attitude wrong, it has inflicted considerable pain on Jewish people. Church people tend to forget that Abraham was a Jew. Moses was Jew. And most of all, Jesus was a Jew.

Let me introduce you to a close personal friend whose father was imprisoned in Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. Karen Z. Brass and her husband attend a synagogue and have raised their children Adam and Shannah  as Jews. Karen knows all about experiencing angels.

Around seven years of age, Karen began dreaming about escaping her then dysfunctional family and an extremely difficult and abusive mother. As she thought about her reoccurring dream of escaping this setting, Karen began to sense she was being saved by angels. This hunch expanded with the emergence of a “circle of light” that appeared at night giving her the assurance and security to go to sleep. The lights were the form that the angels expressed. Angels regularly quieted her fears.

When Karen became an adult woman, she became aware of spontaneous ideas that popped into her head when she needed guidance. For example, she would hear a thought like “take the umbrella.” If she didn’t pay attention, it would rain and she’d get drenched. “Don’t wear those shoes” might come through. If she went ahead and wore them, Karen was certain to trip and fall. Often an angelic message reminds her to reach out to a person in need and let them know someone is thinking of them. In time, Karen realized that she had a guardian angel who protected her. When the angels spoke, inspiration began in a whisper. If the angel repeated the message, the whisper got louder. Karen now often holds out her hands to let the angel know she is paying attention.

Karen met her husband David through an angelic intrusion. At a synagogue service, as she started to park her car, the angelic voice insisted she drive to a different place than she originaly intended. Karen argued that she saw a better spot but the angel was insistent. She gave in and parked as guided. During the service, she met David for the first time and was immediately attracted. Continuing their conversation, David walked Karen out to her car. To her surprise, she had parked next to him! Today, Karen never ceases to listen for angelic guidance.

My conclusion? Everyone has a guardian angel who can make all the difference in our lives. Those random thoughts that blip through your mind may not be as random as they would seem. An angel may be trying to help. Pay attention.

And remember miracles never cease!

MNC GOLDEN OLDIES: Art’s Miraculous Experience!

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE

Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD 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.

Several years ago, I wrote the best seller 82 DAYS ON OKINAWA, the story of the first soldier on that island during World War II. Because it was a war story, the publisher left out Art’s miraculous experience. Here it is.

Art Shaw is a fascinating guy. At age 95, he is a retired Army Colonel who fought in World War II and all the conflicts that followed. Art received a serious back injury that required a spinal fusion from L1 to S1. Twenty-two units of blood were needed. A team of doctors and nurses was required to move him in the bed. Of course, any motion was extremely painful. Nevertheless, what the staff called a “log roll” was necessary to prevent pneumonia.

In the middle of the night, Art heard a voice call his name. “Art, it’s time to log roll.” No one was in the room. The voice came again. Because of the pain and serious possible complications, Art knew how difficult it would be. “Art, do what I tell you and your won’t be hurt.” Art intuitively knew to obey.

He opened his eyes and saw something like a black tube extending into infinity. At the top was a bright, concentrated light. With the instruction to turn over came the assurance that they would help him do so. He made the log roll and went back to sleep.

Later in the night the voice called again. “Art, it’s time to roll.” The same assurance that he would be helped was there. He turned over. Easily.

When his wife Joan arrived the next morning, Art told her that he turned over twice.

“Impossible!” she insisted. “You couldn’t have!”

She rushed out of the room to confront the nurse. “What are you giving him?” she forcefully inquired. “What drugs? What pain killers? Is he hallucinating?”

The nurse frowned. “What are you talking about? We didn’t give him any additional medications last night.

Joan dragged the nurse and her assistants back to his room. “He couldn’t have turned by himself! The pain would be too great. Too dangerous. But look!”

The nurse stared for a moment and then ran for the doctor. Dr. Shephard came in. Astonished! There was no medical explanation for how Art Shaw could have been repositioned – but it had happened – twice.

The angel continued to speak several other times. “Art, you will be alright. You’ll be okay.”

When Art told me this story, he was relating how he had come to know that a guardian angel was with him. Like a voice speaking inside his head, when his name was called direction followed. Today at important times, Art’s angel always shows up and gives him the orientation that he needs.

Art told me that the Angel always has the same particular tone in voice. Distinct. Individual. Whenever the voice sounds, Art knows who is speaking and listens.

Believe in Angels? Art certainly does.

THE EMPOWERMENT NEVER STOPS

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.

THE EMPOWERMENT NEVER STOPS

Our TIME FOR EMPOWERMENT SERVICE last Thursday night was a powerful experience of renewal and healing. We appreciate all who were part of this gathering at Church of the Acts, Oklahoma City. These events will resume in the Fall.

Here’s another miraculous event you’ll find inspiring. Raven Nelson is a full-blood American Indian. As happened to many Indian children, he was placed in a foster home where he experienced abuse and went to the hospital a number of times. Raven had damage to his back from a bullet wound, beatings, and fights. Raven knew about pain.

In the late ‘90’s he began work in bail enforcement which is essentially being a bounty hunter. The work was dangerous and Raven was often in peril. During one of those episodes, he had to be taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Vancouver, Washington. While he was in the emergency room, Raven had a near-death experience.

As the doctors worked frantically on over him, Raven started floating up to the ceiling where he could look down on the medical personnel working over his body.

He clearly needed a blood transfusion but the hospital had no type AB on hand. His blood pressure dropped to the bottom and his heart stopped. The medical team quickly placed electric defibrillation paddles on his chest to start the heart again. Raven’s heart stopped twice.

While the doctors worked desperately, Raven was some place else. He abruptly realized that a tall man was standing on his right side. Wearing a white robe with a gold belt, he had long flowing hair and fire in his eyes.  He reached over and took his hand.

“I died for you,” he said. “Won’t you give me a chance?”

Raven could feel the man’s love penetrating his heart and knew something highly important was happening to him. The man faded and Raven drifted back into his body. His heart had started beating again. Four days later, he walked out of the hospital.

Through the emergency room experience, he had come to an experience and understanding of God’s love. Something new stirred in his heart and Raven knew he had to find that man who stood next to him in the hospital. Raven began a very personal search.

Studying the Bible, he felt the personal relationship growing. A new beginning and life had begun. The better way was unfolding. Eventually all pain vanished. Raven and his wife Vi began holding Bible studies and meetings.

The out- of- the body experience had produced a in- this- world change! Remember that the promises are always there. Don’t be afraid to ask.

Expect the unexpected.

THE TOUCH OF AN ANGEL

Blog 243

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Robert L. Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.

THE TOUCH OF AN ANGEL

Regardless of their personal beliefs and convictions, a vast majority of American believe in angels. Eight in ten citizens frankly state they are convinced angels are there. In a secular age, that number refutes the statisticians! Here’s a fascinating example of why people cling to the idea.

On Christmas Day 2000, Sharon Morrison felt her heart start pounding rapidly. Heart palpitations continued for two hours. Sharon went to her doctor in Belfast, Ireland who advised her to go to the hospital. She hesitated but when the symptoms occurred at work, Sharon was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. She was diagnosed with rapid heartbeat, a dangerous condition.

Turning to a church for prayer, she heard Dr. Bruce Allen speaking about angels. As he concluded describing the ministry of angels, Dr. Allen wanted to pray for anyone who wished to have the ability to see an angel. Sharon went forward for prayer with a number of others.

When Dr. Allen came to her, he said, “Oh, you’ve already started to see angels. Lord, enlarge her vision to see more.”

Sharon returned to her pew and reflected on what had been prayed. She knew more was needed. Going pack, she asked Bruce Allen to pray for her heart. Sharon didn’t want a fixed heart; she wanted a new heart.

As the minister prayed, Sharon caught movement out of the corner of her eye. She realized an angel really was appearing to her. The angel moved forward with something cupped in his hands.  Dressed in a white robe with a golden sash around the waist, Sharon saw his hands extended. He was holding a new heart!

With her eyes tightly closed, Sharon tried to concentrate on what was going to happen. The angel put his hands on her chest, she felt her heart skip a beat and then return to normal rhythm.

Dr. Allen murmured, “Oh! The angel is fixing something.”

Sharon could only nod, unable to speak. She knelt there with her eyes closed.

When she returned to her seat, Sharon knew something wonderful had happened. Surprisingly enough, the next day was her birthday. When she woke up the next morning  and prayed, the voice of the Holy Spirit told Sharon she was healed. She felt a wonderful sense of God’s presence hovering around her.

When Sharon Morrison returned to the hospital for a check-up, all the tests came back normal. She has not experienced any symptoms since.

Is it possible that you’ve overlooked the obvious? Could a guardian angel have been working in your life and you missed the clues? Often, we first experience the angelic in our thoughts. Unexpected ideas or thoughts pop-up and we wonder where that came from. Next time you have such a moment, stop and ask if an angel gave you the nudge. Inquire if you can continue the conversation. You might be surprised by what you discover.

Remember to expect the unexpected.

JUST A GLANCE AWAY

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Rev. Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.

 JUST A GLANCE AWAY

Niki Anderson is a speaker and writer who remembers well her struggles as an eight-year-old child. She also reminds us of the importance of the church as a place of healing.

These weekly blogs started to help people discover and remember that the impact of secularism tends to blur our grasp that heaven is still here and the power of God has not disappeared. Niki is an example of that fact. 

As a sick child Niki struggled with bladder and urinary infections. After a long siege, the doctor advised exploratory surgery that could have serious consequences. Her mother prayed hard and then noticed an ad in the paper about a church meeting where a missionary prayed for the sick.  At the time, the family lived in Los Angeles and had to drive across town to attend the services.

The family walked into the church and found a section reserved for people who needed specific prayer. They sat near the back. A prelude was being played and Niki sat quietly, wondering what was coming next. A women’s voice asked, “Do you want prayer?”

Niki found a soft-spoken middle-aged woman with happy, blue eyes speaking to her. “Yes,” she answered.

As their eyes met, Niki felt a surge of compassion fill her body. The sensation was clearly holy. The service continued and near the end, people were called to come forward by the missionary minister. To her surprise, when the he started to pray for her, he exclaimed “It’s me that being healed! I’ve had bleeding ulcers! When I touched this little girl, I felt the healing rush through my body!”

The next morning Niki’s parents took her to the hospital and prepared her for the operating room. She was wheeled in for the procedure to begin. After a few minutes, the doctor came out.

“I have no explanation for this, but all inflammation is gone and there is no indication of any abnormality. There is no need for surgery. It’s strange but we can only be pleased.”

Niki knew that the previous night at the church had ended her problem. The hand of God had worked through the women with the gentle, blue eyes. The church remains the best place to find God at work.  

Remember to expect the unexpected.

ANGELS COME IN MANY COLORS

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.

ANGELS COME IN MANY COLORS

Last week I suggested that you take Mark’s Gospel and make two columns on a sheet of paper putting what happened on one side when the event wasn’t miraculous and on the other, write when a miracle followed. My prediction was that you would discover that 60 to 70 percent of the ministry of Jesus focused on miracles. I wanted all readers to discover miracles were normative in the ministry of Jesus. BECAUSE they still are today in spite of most people not recognizing the fact.

Here’s an example. 

In the Christmas season, we sing and talk about the intervention of God with the angels. Maybe one is as close as your Christmas tree.

Recently, I was talking with Lisa King-Kirkland. Lisa is a nurse in the Integris Hospital system who can slip a needle in your arm so gently you don’t even notice it. Lisa was telling me about her discovery that angels come in all different colors.

As a child, Lisa and her sisters Melanie and Angela were driving through Houston, Texas on an inter-state highway when their mother Doris Murthy missed thire turn off. Not having any idea what to do next, Doris continued down the highway. Suddenly, she noticed steam coming up under the car’s hood.  Lost in a huge metropolitan city, Doris had no idea what to do but pull off at the next exit and pray for help.

At that moment, she noticed a car following her.

When she pulled over to stop, the other car did the same. Doris was frightened. A nice looking black man got out and walked up.

“Do you need some help, ma’am,” the man asked.

“Do I ever,” Doris said. “Steam is pouring out of my car.  I’m lost, and I have three little girls in the back seat. I don’t even know how to lift the hood.”

“Let me see what I can do,”

The man walked around to the front of the car. The hood immediately raised and he began doing something underneath. After a couple of minutes, he shut the hood. “Your radiator was low. There wasn’t enough water in the pump, but I’ve got it fixed now.” He shut the hood. “Let me tell you how to get back to where you want to go. You need to get back on the inter-state going back to where you missed it.” He offered a few other important tips to get her to her destination.”

Doris sat there amazed at how quicky her problem had been solved. She realized she needed to thank him and got out of her car. There was no car behind her. There was no man who had helped. There was nothing but an empty space.

Doris couldn’t believe her eyes.

She got back in the car and said to Lisa and her sisters, “The Lord has just provided us with a real angel!”

Now years later, Lisa’s life is still touched by that experience and she certainly believes in angels. Lisa wants you to know angels come in many different colors… and to keep looking for them.

Remember to …expect the unexpected!

I have a new book coming out.

MAN ON FIRE can be ordered on Amazon or at your local book store. 

By the way, I’d love to hear your story if you’ve experienced a divine intervention.
