ONE STEP LEADS TO ANOTHER

Dana Taylor attended Our Lord’s Community Church where she developed an interest in healing ministry. A short time earlier she had delivered her daughter Cary, born with a clogged tear duct. The doctor assured Dana the problem was common and would disappear quickly. Unfortunately, it didn’t.

After months of the problem, eye, sinus, and ear infections followed.  Cara was put on anti-biotics but the struggle continued. During this time, Rev. William Vaswig came to Our Lord’s with a message about healing ministry. Dana immediately began praying for the gift. That evening her hands became very warm. Remembering what she heard at church, Dara covered Cary’s ear with her palm. When she took Cary back to the doctor, that ear was healed much to her surprise.

After an interlude when the Taylor’s had a fire in their house, Dana returned to Our Lord’s Church for a special evening Fellowship of the Healing Christ Service where teams of people prayed for personal need. Dana came forward. She worried that the baby was not with her, but remembered the New Testament story of the Roman soldier’s servant who was healed even though Jesus never saw the man. Standing on that promise, Dana asked the three members to pray for her baby. They laid on hands and the four women prayed.

Two days later for the first time, Cary was completely healed.

As the days passed, Cary continued to have other healing experiences. Taking one step at a time led to other encounters that have continued to bless her life. Every time Dana looks at her daughter’s beautiful brown eyes, she is reminded that the Healer is among us.   

Just remember. Miracles never cease.

HELP IN TIME OF NEED

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.

HELP IN TIME OF NEED

Many people are surprised to learn that the miraculous dimension has played such an important part in bringing people to faith in countries around the world. The problem in America has been a lack of openness. Author J.P. Moreland writes that a major factor in the Christian revival in the Third World has been through signs and wonders as expressions of God’s love for His people. Estimates as high as 70% of new believers are brought in through this door.  Other estimates suggest that 90% of the growth of the Church in China has come through healing miracles. When people are in need, they become open to the possibilities in a profound way.

I saw this happen in my own church a number of years ago. I was holding a seminar on a Saturday morning when the front door of the church opened. A brother and sister brought in their father who was obviously struggling to find his way.  I stopped the seminar and walked over to the family. At that moment, I realized the father’s eyes were open, but the man was blind. He needed his children to keep from falling or running into a wall.

“Can I help you?” I asked.

Even before they answered, I could see that they had a different nationality from most of the people in Oklahoma City. I was to learn they were Iranians and had immigrated to America during the upheaval in that country. (Names have been changed to protect their privacy)

“We are Muslims,” Janan said. “But a friend told us that your church prays for the sick. We don’t care about any differences we might have. My brother Radin and I are deeply, deeply worried about our father. Can you pray for him to see again? Right now?”

I glanced back and forth between the brother and sister. Radin looked even more panicked and distressed.

“I have no power to heal anyone,” I explained. “But I can call on our Heavenly Father to touch your father. The Holy Spirit cannot be seen, but he brings healing in His presence.”

“Please do this thing right now,” Janan pleaded. “We must have help.”

By this time some of the people in the seminar had gathered around us. “Let’s all lay our hands on this good man and pray together,” I said. “We need God’s touch right now.”

The group began praying fervently for the healing power of God to be released. Together we interceded for the father’s blindness for several minutes. Abruptly, he cried out, “I can see! I can see!” The brother and sister began to weep as their father walked around confirming his sight was restored.

Although no one asked this Muslim family to respond in any particular way, the brother and sister joined our church and confirmed their newfound faith. Such is what is happening all over the world today. And in America? Sure, the same happenings occur with those who reach out in faith. Healings are a confirmation of the Gospel story.

Just remember. Miracles never cease.

A SECOND TOUCH

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.

A SECOND TOUCH

Last week, I shared Sharon Morrison’s story of a miraculous healing of her heart condition. Let’s follow Sharon’s story a bit further. With three daughters, she and her husband lived in Belfast, Ireland where they have been married for over 30 years. Following her healing experiences, Sharon became a part of Times of Refreshing Ministries. Even to this day, she continues to pray for an outpouring of God’s power on her country.

Here’s what happened to Sharon four years after heart’s irregular and rapid heart rate were healed of a condition that could have taken her life. Sharon took another plunge into a dangerous problem.

Going up the metal steps in the back of the building where she worked, she slipped and fell. Her fractured hand had to be put in a cast. She expected everything to be normal, but when the cast was removed the doctor found she needed a special splint. Her damaged tendons had not healed. More was needed.      

After two weeks of steroid injections, she was far from well. Finally, the doctor prescribed an operation. She had synotendonitous.

Through the Summer and into the Fall, Sharon struggled with pain. She finally became desperate for a divine intervention. At that point, Sharon learned that the minister who had first brought healing to her heart was going to return to her area. Dr. Bruce Allen was going to be in Belfast. Sharon had a sense that this was where she needed to go.

During the conference, Dr. Allen recognized Sharon’s struggle. He asked his wife to put her hand on Sharon’s damaged hand. As the wife prayed for her condition, Sharon felt a flow of energy surge through her hand. She could feel her fingers loosen and, in a few minutes, Sharon was completely healed. No pain, no stiffness, no weakness. Gone.

Sometimes results come only because we pray. Sometimes we need a setting where healings often occur. Sometimes we need a person gifted with a healing touch. All are different, but equal expressions of the Holy Spirit.

The point? The promise is always there. Don’t be afraid to ask for it.         

Remember to expect the unexpected.

PERSISTENCE PRAYER PAYS OFF

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.

PERSISTENCE PRAYER PAYS OFF

Recently I began a new writing project exploring the work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the clergyman who became a spy against the Nazis in World War II. Fascinating story. Against that backdrop, a friend sent me the following story. Richard wanted me to know what had occurred.

A Men’s Fellowship Group in Grace Lutheran Church had been meeting regularly for some time.  In the course of events, they began studying Bonhoeffer’s classic  book Life Together. This book was developed out of the hidden seminary Bonhoeffer conducted for the Confessing Church after Hitler took over the state church. Hidden in the woods, the German theologian describes how scripture envisions a church where people care for each other under all circumstances and call for the ultimate commitment to their “life together.”

The Grace Lutheran Men’s Fellowship always read some Old and New Testament passages and then began prayers of intercession. Following the prayer time, they began talking and sharing their experiences.

One of the group related his wife’s medical problems. (Let’s call her Doris for anonymity sake) She had developed an onset of throat polyes causing her voice to keep changing. With two children under twelve-years of age, the family became highly concerned for her health. An appointment was made with a specialist to attempt to correct what was occurring.

The Men’s Fellowship also started to be become concerned. After all, their study of Life Together called for a radical commitment to each other and sensitivity to their personal problems. Could their prayers make a difference for Doris? Would it be possible to intervene and help?

The men believed the Bible called for intervention and promised the “laying on of hands” could make a difference. The men felt they should act and called Doris to come in where they could personally pray for her. Five of the men gathered around her in the sanctuary of the church and began interceding. As they prayed fervently, the men followed the biblical guidelines to put their hands on her neck and body. The session finished and they all went home.

Several days later, Doris’s husband called the group. The polyes had completely disappeared. The condition was gone!

Five years later, Richard happened to meet Doris in a store. Her healing continued to be complete. She still believed.

Think about it. Might be something you’d want to explore.

Remember to expect the unexpected.

RECOVERING TRUST

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.

RECOVERING TRUST

Here’s an exercise for you. Take Mark’s Gospel and make two columns on a sheet of paper. On one side put what happened that wasn’t miraculous and on the other place when a miracle followed. You will discover that 60 to 70 percent of the ministry of Jesus focused on miracles. They were normative!

During my many conversations with people who have encountered the miraculous, I often found they needed to find or recover a new sense of God’s mercy. Rather than floundering in doubt, they needed to stand up in defiance. Here’s an example of a family in Ireland who made the transition.

When Mike and Aster Mullin’s son Andrew began displaying unusual symptoms and losing weight, they took him to their family physician for a checkup. “The doctors examined him but couldn’t find anything wrong,” Aster said. “But I knew something wasn’t right. When I found the lump on his back, the cold hand of fear gripped my heart.” The discovery of that lump would initiate a storm of tests and a final diagnosis of stage 4 neuroblastoma.

The Mullins soon discovered that the cancer in Andrew’s body had affected nearly every bone, including his spinal column. In the midst of the battle for their son’s life, Mike and Aster struggled to hold on to their faith.

 “I’d been told all my life that God was in control, that He had a purpose for everything we experienced in life, but my heart was confused,” Mike. “I couldn’t understand how I, as an imperfect parent, could have more compassion for my son than God did. Did I have to beg God for mercy? At one point, I remember thinking, Maybe, if we got 10,000 people praying, God would respond,” Mike recalled.

“I just couldn’t figure out why we were still praying at all,” Aster added. “I mean if everything in our lives was set in stone, if God controlled everything, then why bother?” “We were in survival mode,” Mike said.

The Mullin’s then received a CD series from the Andrew Wommack Ministries instructing them on how to use their faith to face Andrew’s condition. What they found boosted their faith! “We discovered that healing is a part of our salvation and that we could lay hands on the sick and see them recover.”

The Mullins immediately laid hands on their son’s legs and arms and commanded health into his bones. Several days later, new test results came in, and Andrew’s bones were completely cancer-free! As they continued to learn more about healing and their authority as believers, the Mullins prayed for their son again.

 “We commanded cancer to leave his body in the name of Jesus and stood on God’s promise that no poison or other deadly thing would harm Andrew, despite the progressive treatment he was undergoing (Mark 16:18).” Then the doctors called to confirm that Andrew’s whole body was cancer-free and that all his organs were healthy and functioning normally!

There’s nothing magical about the miraculous. However, when we access the dimension of God’s empowerment, the results can be just as amazing. The Mullin’s will certainly testify to that fact.

Remember to …expect the unexpected!

THE HEALING TOUCH

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 HEALING TOUCH

Last week I suggested that too often people discount their capacity to pray for others or may let an  extraordinary moment slip away. Later they may wonder if they really did have an ability to communicate healing. They did!

I want to continue to encourage you to explore healing ministry. Here’s another example of divine healing.  Andrew Wommack is an American minister working in healing. This account comes from his ministry.

Teresa Houghteling’s dominant emotion was fear. She lamented, “The disease that was in my body was slowly killing me from the inside out, and there was nothing I could do about it.”

Every six months, Teresa Houghteling had to get her bloodwork checked to see if her organs were still functioning properly. She was suffering from the deadly and incurable Sjögren’s syndrome. After dealing with the disease for several years, it had become something she just had to live with. However, in 2007, Teresa had an encounter with God and rededicated herself to Him, beginning a new journey.

Unfortunately, Teresa’s body did not seem to line up with her inner transformation. In fact, her physical symptoms worsened. In 2011, she was diagnosed with lupus, degenerative disk disease in her back, a bulged disk, and carpal tunnel in her right arm. Teresa remembered, “The emotion that followed was pure confusion.”

Teresa began studying the Bible with new seriousness. She began to understand the importance of how revelation makes words contain power. “I remember Andrew (Wommack) making the statement that one of the reasons we don’t get healed is because our physical bodies are more real to us than our spirit man.” For Teresa, transformation was now well on its way.

“On my way home from a conference I thought I heard God say, ‘So, if you’re healed, doesn’t that include your thyroid gland?’” Fear tried to creep back in as Teresa thought about what would happen if she stopped her medication. However, she was determined not to allow fear to dominate her life again!

Teresa’s journey brought her to a place of complete health and freedom. However, she will be the first one to tell you that it was not overnight. “It was a process for me. I had emotional healing that took place before the physical healing… I became so focused on my relationship with God that I honestly couldn’t say when symptoms began to leave my body… I know that no matter what comes my way, His Word is true, and no one will ever be able to take that away from me.” Healing was completed.

Different people have different experiences and we can learn something from all of them. Teresa offers insight into the power of biblical words to develop an expectation and faith.

LET HIM WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR

Blog 217

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.

LET HIM WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR

The question often is asked, “Is it helpful to pray when a condition appears irreversible? Consider the case of a nine-year-old British girl. (We shall call Mary)

In September 1982, Mary developed a virus infection that damaged both of her ears, leaving her deaf. Dr. R.F. Gardner examined Mary and noted the problem that he certified as deafness. The diagnosis was untreatable bilateral sensorineural deafness. Mary’s parent were told that there was nothing that could be done except to give her hearing aids that would help only to a limited degree.

Mary didn’t want to wear hearing aids the rest of her life and began praying about her condition. Her family and friends joined in and prayed with her. She began to feel that God was telling her to especially pray for the one problem.  Passages of scripture kept coming to her mind. If you have the faith of a child … ask and you shall receive …your faith have made you whole.

On March 8, 1983 one of the hearing aids was damaged at school. The problem was fixed and readjusted for Mary. The next evening Mary was in bed when she realized something was different. She ran down stairs yelling, “Mother! I can hear you!”

Her mother couldn’t believe it. Mary could even hear whispers. When she called the doctor he responded that he didn’t believe her.  “It’s not possible!”

The following day Mary was tested again. The audiogram and tympanogram were fully normal. The audiologists could give no explanation for what had occurred. “I have never seen anything like this in my life.”

The doctor concluded “A belief in the occurrence of cases of miraculous healing today is intellectually acceptable.”

We started with a question. Should you keep praying when the situation seems hopeless. Mary’s answer is by all means! In this age of uncertainty, many things remain uncertain. But prayer isn’t one of them.

Expect the unexpected!
