    Quinton Moore grew up in Pentecostal land. His grandmother had been the baby sitter for Oral Roberts while the cotton pickers worked in the field. Today Jessie Moore would be thought of as an old time Pentecostal. She lived in a world that assumed miracles came with the Christian faith. Quinton grew up in rural Oklahoma where Pentecostalism was a major religious force.

Grandmother Jessie Hargrove, a full blood Cherokee-Osage Indian remains as one of his early memories. Quinton watched her pace back and forth praying in the Indian language and in tongues. Suddenly, she stopped. “Yes!” Jessie cried out. “I sees him!”

Eight-year old Quinton wasn’t sure what was going on, but watched his grandmother grab a shawl and run to the door.

“Come on, Quinton,” she demanded. “We got to get to your uncle quick. I now knows where he is now.”

Quinton piled into the pickup and they went flying down the road. He had no idea where they were going or where they were. Grandma Jessie seemed to have a map in her head and only she knew what was ahead. After a number of 90o turns on dirt roads he had never been on before, Quinton looked up and saw what was ahead.

“Hey!” he shouted. “That’s the cab to my uncle’s truck turned over!”

“Yes, son,” Grandma Jessie said. “That’s what the Holy Spirit showed me.”

They pulled up alongside the semi-trailer cab laying on its side. Jessie leaped out and climbed up the underside of the cab. “Just as the Spirit said! Your uncle’s down there out cold. He’s hurt. I’ll try to shake him loose. You run to that house over yonder and have them call an ambulance. Git with it!”

Quinton went running down the road to the nearest farm house. They were able to get his uncle to the hospital and saved his life. But Quinton couldn’t ever forget that experience. Without any knowledge of even an accident, through her prayers his grandmother Jessie had been able to discover the disaster and locate her son. She considered divine interventions to be simply part of her journey.

In the next several blogs, we will attempt to understand what was going on with people like Grandmother Jessie Moore. They will add another dimension to our insights in how divine interventions occur.

            Christy Clark started running a fever of 105 and became so sick she couldn’t drive herself to the emergency room at the local hospital. She placed a damp washcloth on her forehead and fell back into a sleep. Without any idea of how long she had been in a troubled sleep, Christy felt herself being awakened by a beautiful bright white glowing angel. With long white flowing hair, the angel seemed to be female.

The angel reached down and took Christy’s hand, helping her raise out of bed. When Christy looked back, she could see herself laying in the bed with a washcloth still on her forehead. The angel led her straight through the bedroom wall. As they floated through, vibrant colored lights like sparklers flashed reds, yellows, greens. The journey with the angel led her to a magnificently beautiful place covered with bright white light. At the other end was an even brighter white arched open doorway guarded by a different angel.

Christy peered through the entryway and saw the forms of people walking by that she knew were human souls. They smiled and waved to her, motioning for her to come in with them, and Christy felt she belonged there. Everything about and from her physical life no longer mattered. All she could think about was entering this beautiful space with them. Like the pull of a strong magnet, she felt her soul being tugged through the archway.

The white-haired angel floated back close to Christy’s side and told her that they had to return. Christy protested that she didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. The angel explained that Christy still had a great deal of work to do on earth and many people needed her help. It simply wasn’t her time. The angel took her hand and started leading her away.

Suddenly, Christy was back in her room standing in front of her body, still sleeping with the towel on her face. One minute Christy was outside and the next back in her body. Christy still felt sick, but the fever had broken.

She had heard about out of body and near-death encounters, but remains quite certain what she experienced was not a hallucination. Her night journey to heaven remained as real as everything around her. All fear of death was gone.

SURPRISING CHANGE

MIRACLE BLOG 18 November 21, 2016 MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

Robert Wise explores the world of Divine intervention and miracles 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.

Generally people form their expectations of what God can do and does from what they’ve read in the Bible —only. For example, if a healing doesn’t occur instantly, they decide prayer doesn’t work. If Welch’s grape juice doesn’t become Gallo wine, they are discouraged. Let’s be clear, there’s no problem with what is in the Bible, but the stories must be seen as examples of a starting point and not a finish line.

We must add continuing human experience and consider the Bible as a spring board. The scriptures call us to open our eyes and hearts to greater expectations. Charlotte had such an experience.

In August, 2012, Charlotte had a total knee replacement. She knew it was coming and had put it off too long. Of course, knee replacements can be painful and Charlotte struggled. She knew about Leslie Draper and her ministry that stemmed from contact with the angels. Some people might consider that approach on the bizarre side, but Charlotte needed help. And Leslie was anything but bizarre.

From years of working with human need, Leslie had learned how to listen to angels. She silently turned to them to hear their direction for what should happen next. In Charlotte’s case, the direction was for an “energy healing.” Interesting indeed.

Angelic direction suggested that the problem was that Charlotte’s body was treating the knee replacement as a foreign object and attempting to reject the intrusion. The body’s resources were focused on getting rid of the artificial knee rather than embracing it.

Leslie came and prayed for a shift in the body’s energy. Her prayers and ministry were aimed at bringing the knee into harmony with the body. The sessions were aimed at restoring concord in Charlotte’s entire system.

Thirteen days after the surgery, the doctor took the staples out. To his shock, there was little swelling. Healing was far better than he expected. The next step was the physical therapist doing a knee flexion measurement on the knee. He, too, was shocked and surprised. The therapist told Charlotte that in two to three months the goal was a measurement of 120 degrees. In three weeks, Charlotte measured 128 degrees.

Charlotte had a miracle.

It wasn’t walking on water – but it was walking across her living room with no pain. The heavenly Father cares about such things. Expect Him to care for you – without defining how, when, and where His response will come.
