THE UNEXPECTED IN CUBA

BLOG 65 December 4, 2017 MIRACLES NEVER CEASE 

Followers of this blog know that Robert L. Wise has traveled across many states collecting stories of miracles and divine interventions that confront the contemporary secular mind. Read and see what you think.

Although I knew little about their work, I had heard of the Crusades that T.L. and Daisy Osborn began in 1949 that had stretched around the globe. Possibly, this is all news to you because the work of the Osborn family had been almost entirely outside of the United States. However, I had first run into reports of T.L. Osborn’s work that had been revolutionary in the Netherlands immediately after World War II.  Both T.L. and Daisy have passed away, but LaDonna Osborn continued the ministry in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Recently, I met LaDonna Osborn

LaDonna had a light in her eyes that sparkled with a penetrating and unique glow. Although, I came knowing virtually nothing about her, I quickly knew she was an extraordinary  individual with a passionately devout faith. As we talked, LaDonna shared the story of the family’s work in a multitude of countries.

In the ‘50s, T.L. Osborn held a meeting in Camaguey, Cuba. A woman who had been totally blind came forward to proclaim a total healing. Her eyesight was completely restored. While startling, this was nothing new to the Osborns. In their meetings that encountered thousands, they had come to expecte such results.

One young man who had been blind since birth was walking across a field toward the services when he suddenly crumbled to the ground. The people around him thought he had died. Actually, he had received a vision of the risen Christ that was so overpowering that he was struck to the ground. When he finally regained consciousness, he stood up and proclaimed loudly, “I have seen the Lord, and now I can see. I was blind, but now I see!”

How does such happen? I ask LaDonna how she explained such occurrences. She quickly answered, “The Bible says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. What he did in the past, he continues to do today. We preached Jesus, people believed, and Jesus confirmed the message with his miracle power.”

Over the years, the Osborns documented an almost incalculable number of miracles. Their message was simple; the results were profound.

Stay with me. There’s more to come next week.

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:
