Modern Miricales

A Miracle of Life and Healing

In 2006 Mrs Eugenie Edwards of the little town of Stutterheim in South Africa’s Eastern Cape was involved in a terrible accident. Her survival and ultimate recovery were indisputably miraculous.  I heard her testimony in church one bright Sunday morning some months after the accident that she so vividly recounts. I knew most, if not all, the people involved. 

In March 2011 my wife and I left Stutterheim.  Some time later I received Eugenie's narration of the events of 2006 via a mutual friend. The following are Eugenie’s own words.  Nothing has been edited or changed.  See for yourself what God did in her life.

Raised From the Dead

Jeff Markin was a dead man. In fact, he was officially declared dead at 8:05 a.m. in a Florida hospital emergency room.

The date was Oct. 20, 2006.

Only 53 years old, Markin was a big, burly, ordinary guy, a mechanic by trade. And he wasn’t a religious man by any means.

Heart specialist Dr. Chauncey Crandall was attending to his patients when he was summoned to the emergency room. He knew his presence on the scene was not only a last resort, but also most likely a lost cause.

Heart monitoringMan Comes Back From Dead as Son Yells, ‘Dad, You’re Not Going to Die Today’

Nearly three weeks ago, doctors were ready to pronounce the 37-year-old Ohio diesel mechanic dead from heart failure. That’s when Yahle’s 17-year-old son, Lawrence, ran down the hall of Kettering Medical Center, pointed to his father with nurses around him and said, “Dad, you’re not going to die today.” Read the article here

8-Year-Old Boy Miraculously Recovers From Brain Damage

 

Sometimes life can change in a moment. For the Carroll family, that moment came on Monday, July 15, in the form of an 18-wheeler crashing into the rear of their van on the highway. Thus began the family's greatest test of faith—and the clearest example of God's miraculous power.

Nikki Carroll began immediately assessing her children. Their 10-month-old was dangling in his car seat, pressed between the door and the seat. Their 3-year-old girl's head was millimeters away from being crushed, and their 4-year-old son was covered in glass, bleeding from his neck. Right away, she knew something was wrong with their oldest son, Cadyn. He was slumped over and unresponsive, and for a moment Nikki thought he was gone.  Read more here

A mystery priest who suddenly appeared—and then disappeared—at a Missouri accident scene is being called an angel.

Emergency workers and others in eastern Missouri are not sure what to make of a mystery priest who showed up at a critical accident scene Sunday morning (Aug. 4) and whose prayer seemed to change life-threatening events for the positive.

Even odder, the black-garbed priest does not appear in any of the nearly 70 photos of the scene of the accident in which a 19-year-old girl almost died.

Quadriplegic Walks Again After Crying, 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus'

The old man is certain of two things: He can walk again, and Jesus made it happen.

Known in this ethnic Tibetan community only as “Grandpa,” the 71-year-old tells his story with a gleam in his watery brown eyes.

“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” Grandpa repeats, holding his palms together just under the nose of his weathered face and bowing his head as if in prayer. “I prayed to Jesus, and now I can walk.”

It began about 10 months ago, when Sonam Lhomi, an ethnic Tibetan, introduced the old man to her friends Eliza Ellis* and Alexis Frei,* student volunteers serving in Nepal.

At the time, the old man was confined to his bed, paralyzed from the neck down as a result of an avalanche in the mountains. For three years, Grandpa could not move his arms or legs. He was completely bedridden, requiring constant care.

Did Jesus Really Perform Miracles?

"I can believe Jesus was a great person, a great teacher. But I can't believe He performed miracles." Ever hear comments like this? Maybe you've wondered this yourself. Did Jesus really perform miracles?

Marcus Borg, a prominent member of the Jesus Seminar, has stated, "Despite the difficulty which miracles pose for the modern mind, on historical grounds it is virtually indisputable that Jesus was a healer and exorcist." Commenting on Jesus' ability to heal the blind, deaf, and others, A. M. Hunter writes, "For these miracles the historical evidence is excellent." Read the article here.

Scientist Fired for Believing Jesus Heals

People can believe a lot of crazy stuff nowadays and not be fired from their jobs, but a senior research associate at the Catholic University of Leuven learned that you better not believe that God can heal.

The university is the oldest and largest in Belgium. It was founded in the 1400s under the approval of the Vatican. But as modern Europe has secularized, so has the University, and even here, faith has come under fire.

Fernando Pauwels worked at the University's Research Institute for Work and Society for 11 years without a negative review when he was suddenly fired.

He said, "If you would have asked me, 'Do you get a new contract?,' I would say, 'Yes, of course.' 'Do you have problems with your colleagues?' I would say 'No, everything is fine.' So there were no issues there. A week later I'm out, and I'm like, 'What happened?'" Read the article here

 

A "mysterious voice" led rescuers to find child who survived for 14 hours in submerged car.

In March 2015, Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, 25, lost control of her car and landed in the icy Spanish Fork River in Utah. 

Fourteen hours later, first responders found her 18-month-old daughter, Lily, in her car seat hanging upside down just above frigid river water.

Prior to finding Lily, both police officers and firefighters report that they heard an adult voice yell "Help me!" from inside the car.

They discovered that the voice could not have come from the young mother, who likely died from the impact. 

The rescuers still can’t explain the voice or how the girl survived hanging upside-down for 14 hours in freezing temperatures without being dressed for the cold.

Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro, 40, fell unconscious from a rare amniotic fluid embolism during a cesarean section in September 2014 at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Florida. 

Doctors tried to revive Graupera-Cassimiro for three hours. After 45 minutes without a pulse, doctors decided to invite her family into the operating room to say their last goodbyes. 

Then what doctors are calling a “miracle” occurred — her heart began beating on its own.
