WHEN LIFE ENDS—AND BEGINS AGAIN

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.

 WHEN LIFE ENDS—AND BEGINS AGAIN

I have been surprised by the number of people I have met who had “out-of-the-body” experiences  (NDE) as they were dying. When they came back and became conscious again, their reports always left me intrigued. A month ago, I shared Ron Carte’s journey after he had a heart attack and crashed into a tree. This week I interviewed him for a coming YouTube video that you will want to see. Just look for Miracles Never Cease by Robert Wise.

One of the fascinating aspects of an NDE event is the extremely accurate memory that these persons had of what they saw from the other side or often the top of the room. One woman having an out of the body experience saw a red label on the hidden side of a ceiling fan. The nurses were amazed as no one had discovered that red tab before. The uncanny but precise description of what they saw when out of the body is difficult to repute.

Here’s a similar experience of a man who been an atheist.

Ian McCormack was scuba diving near the cost of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean when he was stung four times by Jelly Fish. Sometimes called the most venomous creature in the world, one bite can cause the cardiovascular system to collapse with death in two to three minutes. McCormack was bitten four times.

As he was dying, Ian saw a vision of his mother telling him to call out to God for help. Now in utter darkness, he was terrified and prayed for God to forgive his sins. A bright light suddenly descended on him, drawing him out of the darkness.  The light was unspeakably bright as if it was the center of the universe. Nevertheless, Ian could look into the brilliant blaze.

The Presence in the light knew everything about him, making him feel terribly ashamed. However, rather than judgement, he felt what he described as ‘pure, unadulterated, clean, uninhibited, undeserved love.” In the middle of the light, he saw a man in a dazzling white robe holding out his arms to Ian. After he returned to physical life, Ian knew he had been in the presence of Almighty God.

Ian McCormack’s experience is another example of touching the transcendent dimension that is always around us. On this Easter Weekend, we are reminded of the ultimate victory over death that laid the foundation for all of these experiences. Certainly offers us hope!

Remember to expect the unexpected.

FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON

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.

 FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON

Scripture talks about “gifts of the Spirit,” meaning divinely imparted abilities to be a channel of the power of God. The passing centuries have been filled with stories of devout people who have been conveyors of that grace. Bernadette Soubirous, Kathryn Kuhlman, Oral Roberts, John Wesley, the three children at Fatima, on and on. They were all ordinary people who develop extraordinary ministries.  When we have a problem or a need, often it’s helpful to seek out such persons.

Robert Waller found this fact to be true when his wife heard of such a ministry over the television.  Here’s the story.

According to his doctors, Richard Waller was just a few short years away from permanent dependence upon a wheelchair and a pacemaker to assist his ever-weakening body and heart. He was living in constant chronic pain, suffering from two prolapsed disks, spina bifida, degenerative disc disorder, sciatica, arthritis, calcium deposits, and a heart condition called, arterial fibrillation. His wife, Jacqueline, had prayed for his healing, but his condition only grew worse.

Richard, who makes his living as a carpenter, found the pain with which he was suffering made it nearly impossible for him to work. As his condition worsened even picking up or playing with his small daughter became almost impossible. Richard underwent many types of treatments over the years, some very costly, to escape the pain. He used chiropractic methods and even facet joint injections, in which large syringes full of potent steroids were guided via live X-ray directly into his spine. All of his efforts provided little relief.

Jacqueline was surfing television stations, she came across the God TV channel; this was a surprise to her since they had never subscribed to it. Andrew’ Womack ‘s program happened to be broadcasting at the time. She decided to listen to what Andrew had to say. When Richard came home from work, she shared what she had found. Richard and Jacqueline decided that they wanted to attend one of Andrew’s meetings. Following the meeting, Richard made his way to the platform to meet with a prayer minister. He happened to connect with Andrew’s worship leader, Charlie LeBlanc. Richard gave Charlie the full run down of his extensive list of ailments.      

“There’s nothing too big for God, and we’re going to work on that right now,” Charlie responded without hesitation. Charlie prayed, Richard received.

When Richard headed back to his seat, he still felt pain, but when his wife asked him how it went, he responded, “I’m healed. Everything—I’m healed.”

The following morning, Richard noticed that he didn’t have to get out of bed in his usual way. He had become accustomed to rolling over onto his stomach, sliding down feet first onto the floor and resting on his knees, and then slowly mustering up the strength to push himself up off the bed into a standing position. It was at this moment that he fully realized he was completely healed.

Today, with a new lease on life, Richard is extremely active. He loves mountain biking, skiing and of course spending time with his wife and ten-year-old daughter.

The point? Some people have the gifts to be agents of a divine touch. If you are struggling, look for a church with such a ministry.

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

BROKEN RESTORED  

The Russian invasion and assault on the Ukraine demand a need for assurance of heavenly intervention. Once more, we can assure the citizens they are not forgotten by heaven.

Brad Hentges and his daughter had gone riding when he was thrown by a young horse.  His pelvis was separated from his back along with internal injuries. After time in the ICU unit, Brad returned home still struggling with intense pain. After three months of barely being able to walk, the doctors concluded the pelvis had become unstable, needing a metal place with screws. However, the surgery might not relieve the pain.

Brad and his wife began praying. None of the options sounded good.

A friend came over to shoe the horse and recognized how much pain Brad was in. He was barely able to sit or stand. The friend remarked that he had a friend who appeared to have a gift of praying for people with Brad’s problem. The man had seen many healings. Would Brad like a visit from Bruce Carlson? Certainly!

When Bruce Carlson arrived, Brad’s pain continued to be so intense that movement was difficult. Bruce observed the situation and had Brad remove his shoes. Holding the feet together, everyone could see Brad’s right leg was a complete inch shorter than the other one. In other words, his pelvis was out of alignment with a tilt to the left. As Bruce began to pray, he affirmed his faith in God’s word and that they should trust Jesus Christ to be what he promised to do. He prayed for Brad’s pelvis and misalignment to be healed.

Much to Brad’s amazement, he watched the right heel abruptly extend, pass the left heel in length, and then return ending exactly the same leg as the right leg. Brad’s back and pelvis were in alignment.

Bruce asked Brad to stand. This time, he put his hands on Brad’s hips. Once more, Bruce affirmed his conviction about faith in Christ with the power to bring healing. At that moment, Brad felt like his joints were being squeezed together. Even though he was still feeling some pain, Brad knew something was different. The next morning, he awoke with less pain and was on his feet much longer. By Sunday, he was pain free and helped load and unload three moving trucks. The problem did not return.

Brad will tell you today that he is thankful the Lord’s servant Bruce Carlson was sent. His faith is stronger than ever. Could God do the same for you? Think about it.

Remember to expect the unexpected.

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.

APPEARANCES

In these blogs I made no distinction between Protestants, Roman Catholics, Orthodox, and Jews. My quest is to discover the miraculous. The stories are simply what they are regardless of where they happened or to whom. Along the way I discovered that God has no favorites and blesses all groups, even those that distrust and hate each other. Heaven doesn’t operate on prejudice.

Along the way, I also discovered a distinction between miracles (instantaneous explosion of grace) and divine interventions (more gradual and on-going expressions of empowerment). All of which it is to say we have to accept what God does on His terms, not ours. His methods remain His ways.

That’s particularly true of unexpected angelic appearances. For 2,000 years, Christians said the Apostle’s Creed with the phrase the “communion of the saints.” For Traditionalists that meant a continuing relationship with the departed, the saints. For Protestants, it tended to  mean having a monthly church fellowship supper. Sorry. The creed was always about the possibility of connecting with eternity.

One of the expressions of this belief is that saints have continued to intervene. Sometimes, the appearance is angelic, other times spiritual giants from the past spoke. For example, last summer I was in Rouen, France where Joan of Arc (the patron saint of France) was burned at the stake. Her crusade began through the visitation of Saint Catherine, Saint Michael, and Saint Margaret when they appeared to her in her father’s garden.

History has recorded such experiences through the last two millennium. Perhaps, the most striking have been the appearances of the Virgin Mary, often call the ‘apparitions of Mary.” Such happened at Guadalupe that began the conversion of Mexico. The appearance of Mary to Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France created the healing water of Lourdes where to this day people receive remarkable healings.

The appearances of Mary at Fatima in 1917 contained important vital messages. While the Communist revolution was exploding, Mary instructed the visionaries (and everyone) to pray for its removal and spiritual renewal to follow. Decades later this occurred in December 1991. Mary also gave insight into the attempt to execute a Pope which happened to John Paul II.

In the second half of the 20the century, I became aware of similar appearances of Mary at Medjugorje. Interestingly enough, she appeared to children from a poor village in Yugoslavia, then a Communist country. You might note that the above assorted appearances were all to innocent children or poor people in adverse circumstances. (Gives you something to think about living in affluent America) When I was in Hungary, I attempted to go to Medjugorje but the Bosnian War only got me down to the Adriatic Sea where I had to turn back.

Anyone interested in miracles and divine interventions will find the story of Medjugorje important. Interestingly enough, one of the most insightful accounts is by a Lutheran Protestant Wayne Weible. He was there on a number of occasions and became close to the visionaries. Medjugorje: The Message published in 1989, Paraclete Press can be ordered through your book store. You will be moved by how Weible’s life was affected and changed by his discoveries. Read it.

How did the appearances of Mary happen? Some actually saw her. Others heard her voice in their minds. All were immediately and decisively moved. They were not the same again.

Is Mary and other saints still speaking to people today? The record says yes. Next week I will share an amazing story of how a person was healed through such an encounter. In the meantime, get out there and order Medjugorje: The Message. You will be encouraged.

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

BACK FROM THE BEYOND

Part Two

Last week I reported that The November/December issue of The Saturday Evening Post ran an article on near-death experiences written by Bruce Greyson, M.D. and Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, parallels my findings. Here’s more of what he related.

In over a half century of investigation, Dr. Greyson  found that often there were similarities in people’s experiences. One-third change occupations and three-fourths made important changes in their lifestyles or activities. These changes were mostly consistent with people who had been involved in occupations that involved violence such as policemen or the military.

Thirty-six-year-old policeman Joe Geraci was used to seeing bloodshed in his work. Yet after his NDE (near-death experience) he could no longer watch TV because it was too violent. On an assignment, he endangered himself and another officer because he couldn’t fire his gun. He resigned and returned to being a teacher.

NDE survivor Emily was 49 when she sank while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Yet, her NDE survival changed everything. Her values shifted. She had been a successful real estate dealer for 17 years. She turned her business over to one of her sons and joined the Lutheran Church Home where she does marketing for the elderly. She says, “I now live to the fullest and would never, never be afraid of dying.”

What an encouraging word. There is more to life –And death—that we would ever have thought!

A NEW YEAR WITH HOPE

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.

A NEW YEAR WITH HOPE

During the last twelve months, I have been blessed to run into people who have experienced the hand of God touching their lives. What a divine accident! Over and over, I’ve bumped into recipients of a touch of grace. Subsequently, these encounters inspire me to look to the coming year with hope.

At the same time, I know the holidays are difficult for people with losses that can never be recovered. Good people are out there still searching for God’s intervention. My experience says, “Don’t give up and stop hoping. The best is yet to be.”

Here’s an example. The Christmas story ends with Joseph having an inspired dream, guiding him to leave Israel with Mary and the baby. Joseph would tell us to keep dreaming because God often speaks through our dreams. Of course, most of our dreams are only our thought processes ordering and reordering our waking experiences. However, don’t discount your dreams as an avenue to the miraculous.

My next-door neighbors Wiley and Carrie found this to be true. Born with a heart defect, their son Garret struggled through eighteen-years of medical issues. He actually lived more than three years longer that most children with this problem. Nevertheless, Carrie was devastated when Garret came to the end of his life. A woman of strong and determined faith, she was heartbroken.  Struggling with the meaning of his death, she had this dream.

Wiley and Carrie were standing on a bridge holding baby Garret. As they crossed the bridge, Garret began to grow until when they reached the other side and he had become a full grown eighteen-year young man.

Carrie looked in front of them and saw another bridge, old, broken, virtually destroyed. She couldn’t imagine how they would ever get across. Garret would have an impossible time on that worn span.

Abruptly, Jesus appeared standing next to Garret. They smiled and suddenly both were gone. Disappeared!

As Carried dreamed the scene, she realized that her son no longer had to face a destructive bridge, a struggling life with a broken body. Though it was a severe mercy, her heavenly Father had spared Garret and the family found a devastating journey.  Even with their heart-break, the family had encountered God’s love intervening.

What would Carrie tell you as you face the coming year? Don’t stop dreaming and hoping, God is always there even in unseen and unexpected ways. Not always understood, miracles keep happening.

And for you? 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!
