Recently, I was told of a man who was in critical condition in ICU after a HORRIFIC attack in his home. The man in his 70s had an intoxicated man break into his home–demanding drugs–when this 70 year old man stated that he did not have any drugs, the burglar called the older man a liar and began to BEAT HIS SKULL IN WITH A HAMMER.
Minutes later, the burglar stumbled to the property manager’s office and stated that he thinks he just killed _______ (naming the 70 year old man). Not sure if this intoxicated man was lying or not, the property manager ran to the home of the 70 year old man…only to find him…LYING IN A POOL OF BLOOD.
The property manager called 9-11 and stated that if they did not send a helicopter, the 70 year old man would be dead upon arrival to the hospital due to the severity of the blows to his skull.
The burglar took off with the 70 year old man’s truck and began running into three parked vehicles as he tried to escape. He was quickly apprehended by the help of a police helicopter and brought BACK to jail (he apparently had been out on parole).
The family prayed–asking me to pray along side the. I then asked my Sunday School to join us in prayer…and countless others were praying for this elderly man. He was not expected to make it.
TWELVE SEPARATE BLOWS TO HIS SKULL WITH A HAMMER….this 70 year old man’s brain was severely traumatized…the surgeons could not get all of the bone shards out of his brain, but “did the best they could”. After surgery, the doctor was very clear with the family that the man would NEVER be able to use his right arm or right leg again. The family, who are Christian, assured the doctor that God could do whatever He chose–but the doctor insisted that what they saw, was “as good as it was going to get”.
After the surgery, the man was ALIVE (miracle #1), he was WITHIN HIS RIGHT MIND (MIRACLE #2) and he was able to move his left arm and left leg (MIRACLE #3), and he stated that he had never believed in God before that horrific incident, but now he KNEW that there was INDEED a God (MIRACLE #4)–and that it was GOD WHO ALLOWED HIM TO LIVE THROUGH THAT (MIRACLE #5). All were amazed at the progress!!!! And people continued to pray for further healing for the glory of Jesus Christ.
As family went to visit the man, he smiled as he showed them something. “Watch this” the 70 year old man stated with deep accomplishment in his voice. And with that, the man RAISE HIS RIGHT ARM AND WAVED AT HIS SISTER–THEN RAISED HIS RIGHT LEG!!!! (MIRACLE #6)!!! It amazed his sister and she was able to further share about the Lord Jesus Christ with her brother covered in stitches, bandages and severe bruising.
As I spoke with this same woman last night, I felt led by God to ask how this 70 year old man was doing. And I was FLOORED at what she shared next!!!! She stated that as she had gone to visit him most recently, she was walking down the hospital hall of the ICU to her brother’s room and passed a man sitting in a chair out in the hallway. As she passed the man, he called out her name and she turned around in slight confusion. IT WAS HER BROTHER–OUT OF BED, SITTING IN A CHAIR, UNASSISTED, ALL BY HIMSELF!!!!! (MIRACLE #7)
Ladies and Gentlemen, I do not pretend that all who read these posts believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God–or that He rose from the dead, as the Bible says. But, I ENCOURAGE YOU (if this description of a non-believer fits you) to ASK GOD TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU…because HE WILL and Jesus Christ is just as much in the business of doing miracles today as He was when He walked the earth over 2,000 years ago (Hebrews 13:8).
How good and gracious is the Lord Jesus Christ to offer salvation to ALL people–through the use of dreams, visions, FB posts, the Holy Bible, Christian stories of His divine glory and even the natural world that we see around us! Praise the name of Jesus Christ for allowing this 70 year old man to not die in his unbelief of Jesus Christ as Lord and suffer eternal horror in hell (forever separation from the loving God Almighty)–RATHER, this 70 year old man was allowed to LIVE THROUGH THIS HELLISH EXPERIENCE in order to see first hand that God IS real, and that GOD INDEED HAS A PLAN FOR HIS LIFE…EVEN AT 70 YEARS OLD. Amen and amen!!!
PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYING FOR THIS 70 YEAR OLD MAN’S CONTINUED HEALING AND FOR HIS SALVATION IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (1 John 4:9-10)!
