Return From Death’s Door: How God Brought Connie Davis Back to Life

Return From Death’s Door: How God Brought Connie Davis Back to Life

By Ken Hulme and Kristi Watts
The 700 Club

CBN.com“I looked down on her and her eyes were open and looking at me, but they were not looking. Quite frankly, I was looking at a dead person,” relates Joyce Langston, an intensive care nurse.

Paramedics had brought Connie Davis to the emergency room at the River Regional Medical Center about two hours earlier. There, doctors discovered that she had suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot that hit her lung. The trauma from that clot left Connie without blood pressure or pulse, causing her to code.

“A code is just a term that we use to try to bring someone back, try to revive them,” Joyce says.

Dr J.R. “Bob” Ford, Connie’s attending physician, recalls the details of that day.

“They got her to the emergency room and instituted CPR,” he recalls. “For two hours they continued that CPR. We had a heart doctor, a lung doctor, and different doctors coming in and different people doing the code as we went along. Basically, we never were able to get back a blood pressure, pulse, or any objective evidence that she was breathing or alive.”

That’s when Joyce got the call to bring one of the strongest blood pressure medicines to the ER—a medicine of last resort.

Dr. Ford and Joyce Langston“They had not been able to get any pulses, any significant pulses. They had not gotten any blood pressure. She wasn’t responding to any of the medicines,” Joyce explains.

“I think Connie had the best medical care that you could possibly get,” says Dr. Ford. “We went to extreme measures on everything.”

Their last official step, in medical terms, was to call the code, or call the time of death.

“She was clinically dead,” says Dr. Ford. “They had called the code and pronounced her dead.”

What hospital officials didn’t realize was that on that Sunday morning, Connie’s friends, family, and church had begun to storm heaven on her behalf.

“I just stopped the service and told the church what was going on and said, ‘We’re going to take awhile and intercede for Connie,’ ” Rev. Mike Fields told his congregation. “We were interceding that God would spare her life. We were praying against death and praying for life.”

Meanwhile, the ER doctor came to the waiting room to tell the family the bad news. Still full of faith, Connie’s husband, Tommy, made a request.

“I asked him, ‘Could we come in and pray before they call it?’ He said yes, we could come in and pray,” Tommy recalls.

Thelma Russell, Connie’s spiritual mom, recalls praying over Connie.

“When I laid my hand on her,” says Thelma, “she was cold. I said, ‘Lord, with long life you promised to satisfy her. Lord, you said you would do her good and not evil, that you would give her an expected end, that your will for her is to live and not die.’ When I saw her gripping Tommy’s hand, and mine started shivering like that, I knew that life was coming back into her.”

Suddenly, Connie Davis was breathing and her blood pressure was climbing! Doctors and nurses were stunned—including one nurse who had helped with CPR.

“She said, ‘Joyce, I have been doing this 28 years, and I have never seen anything like it. After those people prayed, she got a pulse!”

Adds Dr. Ford, “All I know is the family went in, and when they came out, the nurses went back in there and she was spontaneously starting to breathe again and began feeling blood pressure and a pulse again.”

But Dr. Ford knew that Connie still faced an uphill battle. Besides all of her major organs shutting down, Connie showed no signs of brain activity.

“We knew that she was brain dead when she started back,” he says. “She had no spontaneous activity. She was on a ventilator. We had to be assisted in her ventilation. She had an aspiration pneumonia, which means she aspirated her stomach contents during CPR. We broke her ribs. Her kidneys went into failure from not enough oxygen. Her GI tract went into bleeding from not enough oxygen. She just had every complication that you can have from a cardiac arrest.”

But God wasn’t finished working. As the doctors expressed concerns about her complications, family and friends continued to pray—intensely. And God began to do other miracles that very day.

“It was probably 4 o’clock in the afternoon,” Joyce recalls. “The respiratory therapist was on the other side of the bed from me and she said, ‘Joyce, I think she’s sticking her tongue out at me.’ I said, ‘Donna, she’s brain dead, she’s not sticking her tongue out at you.’ About that time Connie went (shakes head). I went around to the other side of the bed and said, ‘Are you awake?’ She went (shakes head). I thought, This just can’t be. This is a mistake. But at the time, when she came over, her body temperature was 89.9 degrees. I mean, she was already headed out. Her body was starting to cool off. So I’m just thinking, This just can’t be. This kind of stuff doesn’t happen. She could move her legs and everything. No neurological deficits.”

Even more amazing, at 3 o’clock the next morning—just 15 hours after she was to be pronounced dead—Connie wrote a note to her husband, asking him to cancel an appointment.

God had done it again! Now, each time Connie would face a medical crisis, Joyce knew exactly where to go.

“At every turn, I would go out there, and there was this sea of people from Connie’s church out in the waiting room. I would have to wade through to find Mike and Tommy. ‘You all need to be praying. She’s bleeding, and we can’t get the bleeding stopped,'” Joyce recalls.

At the end of 30 days, Connie Davis left the hospital, and we’d like you to meet her right now—that is Connie playing basketball with her son! God has not only raised her from the dead, in His incredible power and mercy, He restored her—body and mind—to perfect health!

“She’s beautiful. She’s vibrant. She’s full of life and so full of the joy of the Lord,” says Joyce. “It is so incredible to contemplate that she is the dead woman that I saw in the emergency room.”

“I know that if God can still raise the dead, He can do anything but fail, so it has really, really increased my faith,” says Connie’s best friend, Toni Ford.

“There’s no way to physiologically explain how someone can go two hours in a code and not get blood supply to the brain like she did to her kidneys and things and come out of it just totally neurologically fine,” says Dr. Ford. “I’ve never seen it before. The fact that she came out of that without any damage at all is truly a miracle.”

Tommy’s faith also grew tremendously. “I heard often that God did a lot of stuff in the Bible back in the days of old,” he says, “but now I know that He is a miracle worker and He does raise people from the dead because He raised my wife from the dead. I was there, and I know.”

By this time, you might be curious what was going on from Connie’s perspective.

“I didn’t hear them say, ‘She’s dead,'” says Connie, “but I did hear them say, ‘This looks bad. She’s not going to make it.’ When I heard that, I thought, I guess I’m going to die. So I’m lying there and I want to make sure I’m right with the Lord, so I said the sinners prayer. I said, ‘The Lord is my Shepherd.’ I said, ‘Father, if you really don’t need me, I really would like to raise my son.'”

And at several points, Connie began to describe watching the doctors treat her from “outside” her body. Could this have been an “out of body experience?” Connie says she’s not sure.

“I just knew I saw myself shaking really hard back and forth, and how that happened I don’t know, and foam was coming out my mouth,” says Connie. “I wanted to make sure that that happened, I just wasn’t thinking of it or dreaming about it. I asked my husband when I got out of the hospital, ‘Was I doing that?’ and he said, ‘Yeah, you did it quite a bit.'”

Connie and Tommy DavisOf course, no one goes through such an ordeal without it changing their life. For Connie, that means telling others about the amazing grace that saved her.

“I try to tell as many people as I can to accept the Lord while they still have breath in their body,” Connie explains. “People need to make a choice now for Christ because you’re going to spend eternity somewhere. It could be in hell or in heaven. You’re going to be able to hear. You’re going to be able to have all your personality. So if there is anything I can convey to people, it’s accept the Lord today.”

UPDATE 2005
In looking back, Connie notes several things. First off, she says, “Your spirit does not die.” She says her personality and her senses were in tact. She was fully aware of her surroundings and all that was being said and done. She heard doctors’ grim words, nurses’ routine remarks and even one doctor correcting another’s procedure. She says she was trying to joke with them as they opened her eyelids to detect any response. She was saying back to them, “Well, I can see you…” She says this experience has convinced her even more of the reality of eternal existence either in heaven or hell.

Connie is also convinced it simply wasn’t her time to go. But the prayers of the saints were a critical part of what brought her back. Her own simple prayer, “Lord, if you don’t need me, I would like to raise my son,” and the faithful prayers of her interceding husband and church family are what allowed her to return to her body.

She now appreciates that her life has been extended. She is more sympathetic toward others, believes God more and takes Him at His word more easily. She says she catches herself ready to complain about mundane things in life like laundry and remembers that she might not have been here now. She says these thoughts stop the complaints. She is also very humble and doesn’t want a spotlight on herself or her experience. She says unequivocally that she didn’t “do” this, that she has no great ability to heal or pray as a result of this experience. She loves God and will pray for anyone who needs it because of His love for His people, not because she was resurrected. And if she ever needs to be reminded, her son now 15, will let her know that it’s because of him that she’s still here. God is letting her raise her son.

Smith Wigglesworth Testimony: Dying man healed

Near death man with tuberculosis completely healed by Jesus in Wales!

There was an Episcopal minister by the name of Lazarus in the country of Wales. He was bedridden for several years, near death suffering from tuberculosis. Wigglesworth was asked to visit him to pray for healing.
Upon arriving he describes the scene as; “he was nothing but a massive bones with skin stretched over them. There was no life to be seen. Everything in him spoke of decay.”
Wigglesworth said that the man did not believe God wanted to heal him and that there was not an atom of faith there in that man and that the man had made his mind up not to have anything, so he left the man.
But God had promised Wigglsworth he would heal the man, so the next morning he gathered 7 other believers in the town to go back and pray. This is what Wigglsworth wrote:
“I will never forget how the power of God fell on us as we went into that sick man’s room. Oh, it was lovely! As we made a circle around the bed, I got one brother to hold the sick mans hand on one side, and I held the other, and we each held the hand of the person next to us.
I then said;
“We are not going to pray; we are just going to use the name of Jesus.” We all kneltdown and whispered that one word, “Jesus!, Jesus!, Jesus!”
The power of God fell, then it lifted. Five times the power of God fell, and then it remained. But the man in the bed was unmoved.
Two years previously, someone had come along and had tried to raise him up, and the devil had used his lack of success as a means of discouraging Lazarus. I said “I don’t care what the devil says, if God says He will raise you up it must be so. Forget everything else except what God says about Jesus.”
A sixth time the power fell, and the sick man’s lips began moving, and the tears began to fall. I said to him, “the power of God is here; it is yours to accept it.” He said, “I have been bitter in my heart, and I know I have grieved the Spirit of God. Here I am, helpless. I cannot lift my hands or even lift a spoon to my mouth.” I said, “repent, and God will hear you.” He repented and cried out, “Oh God, let this be to your Glory.”As he said this, the power of the Lord went right through him.
I have asked the Lord to let me never tell the story except the way it happened, for I realize that God can never bless exaggerations.
As we again said “Jesus!, Jesus!, Jesus!” the bed shook and the man shook. I said to the people who were with me, “you can all go downstairs now. This is all God. I’m not going to assist him.” I sat and watched the man get up and dress himself and we sang the doxology as he walked down the steps.
I said to him “now tell what has happened.” It was soon told everywhere that Lazarus had been raised up.
The people came from Llanelli and all the district around to see him and to hear his testimony. God brought salvation to many. Right out in the open air this man told what God had done, and as a result, many were convicted and converted. All this occurred through the name of Jesus, “through faith in his name” (Acts 3:16). Yes, the faith that is by Him gave this sick man perfect soundness in the presence of them all. Amen & Glory to His name!

Miscarriage Miracle: How God saved a child from miscarriage!

Read one woman’s amazing Miscarriage Miracle Story: God saved her son!

About five years ago I was pregnant when I started experiencing symptoms of a miscarriage (cramping, bleeding, etc.) at about 12 weeks. I went to the ER (Albany Medical Center). After being examined and having an ultrasound the doctor told me that I was in the process of miscarriage and there was nothing they could do. His heart rate was below 90 and decreasing (125 is a normal fetal heart-rate) I asked if there was something I could do, if going on bed rest could help.

They said it would not make a difference, that I was already in the process of miscarriage. (They actually used the term ‘spontaneous abortion’ which I resented). They told me to go home and if the baby had not ‘passed’ within a week to come back for a D&C. I was absolutely crushed, especially because me and my husband had lost our first child at around the same time a few months earlier. I began to cry as the doctor left the room and I waited to be discharged. I could not believe it, my worst fear was really true, I would lose this baby also.

Without any words ( I couldn’t find any) I drew near to God in my heart. Immediately I stopped crying and at that moment a janitor was walking by mopping and I asked him to ask the doctor to come back in. When he came back in I told him that my baby (NOT, “fetus”) was going to live. He clearly did not know how to proceed and just apologized, reiterating the fact that based on my symptoms and their findings that that was the prognosis. I respectfully told him that I was sorry but I did not agree.

Upon leaving the hospital I called my closest family and friends (many of which are powerful intercessors with great faith) and asked them to pray for my unborn child. Many of them made prayer chains, some even reaching to Florida and California. When I got home I laid down on the couch and tried to find the strength to pray. I felt the Holy Spirit minister to me that I did not have to pray, just to rest, that I was covered.

What happened next is kind of hard to explain in words, but the best way to describe it is that I could actually feel the prayers of the people, almost like a very soft vibration. A wave of peace washed over my body. It was an unbelievable feeling that I cannot describe but I could physically feel it. In that moment I knew that my baby would live.

I determined to stay on bed-rest. Within 24 hours the cramping and bleeding slowed to a stop. My best friend would call me on the phone, declaring that my baby would live and not die, she commanded his heart rate to regulate, she spoke strength unto my body and his. When the week was up I returned to the doctor as they instructed. They gave me an ultrasound (as protocol before preforming a D&C). What they found was a perfectly normal pregnancy, with a baby who had a heart-rate of 125.

They could not believe it, but I could 🙂

At around my due date I was scheduled for my weekly check-up and my regular doctor was delivering another baby so I had to see someone else. When the doctor came in he began the normal questions about my pregnancy. I briefly told him about the visit to the hospital at 12 weeks and I told him what I told the doctor. His face was amazed and he began to laugh. I was probably looking at him a little weird so he proceeded to tell me he was there that day and remembers the doctor talking about my response. He looked at my huge belly with tears in eyes and said “this is the baby?”

Justice Jeremiah was born almost two weeks late at 8lbs 4oz after a perfectly normal delivery. He is a healthy, beautiful almost five year old who is an amazing big brother to Jackson Joseph who is one. I am sure they will be men after God’s own heart. One day ( when I feel the time is right) I will tell him this amazing story of the healing power of God and His abundant love for us!

Healing today; How do we win the battle?

How do we win the battle against sickness today?

When Jesus began his ministry, He was revealing and doing the will of God for all people… He was fulfilling prophesy and fulfilling the scriptures through His healing miracles.

(When the evening came, they brought to him many that were possessed with Devils: and He cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses. Matthew 8:16-17).

And if it was God’s will to heal ALL when Jesus came into His ministry; “low, I come, to do your will, oh God” Hebrews 10:7, and if it is true that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) then it must also be true that it is still God’s will for Jesus to heal All who come to Him today. In fact as followers, Jesus Himself commanded us in both Matthew and Luke to go out, share the love of God, and heal the sick (Matt 10:7-9 and Luke 10:8-9). Yet, so many Christians no longer see healing in their lives, no longer believe in the power of healing, and most no longer believe healing is real or available to us today as followers of Jesus.

F.F. Bosworth writes in his book Christ the Healer
“Perhaps no one could be more conservative than the scholars of the Episcopalian church. Yet, the commission appointed to study the subject of spiritual healing for the body, after three years of study and research in both the Bible and in history, reported back to the church; the healing of Jesus was done as a revelation of God’s will for humanity. Because they discovered that his will is fully revealed they reported further, no longer can the church pray for the sick with that faith-destroying phrase, “if it be your will“.”

In other words, nothing could destroy the power of healing in the name of Jesus faster than a faith that is uncertain of God’s will to heal us. When we say “Oh Lord, heal my friend if it be your will”, we have basically shown the enemy that we have little or no faith that it is God’s will to heal us.

When we believe sickness is from God, or when we believe that it’s God’s will for us to be sick, or that it is He who selectively chooses who will and who will not be healed based on favor, then we have been terribly deceived by the enemy and we are left with a weak foundation for our faith to stand up against sickness from the enemy.

Brothers and sisters Satan is a liar: This is true….the Bible says so and Jesus said so. He has been deceiving the world since Adam and Eve and causing us to doubt Gods word, since that very day mankind fell when He asked Eve “Did God actually say?…surely you will not die!”

I believe today, many of us are equally deceived when Satan says things to us like ”Did God surely mean His forgiveness, grace, healing, and mercy are for All of us?…. surely God’s healing power was for generations past and not today’s church?…. Surely God meant healing was for the past or for our future in heaven and not literally now, when Isaiah said “By his stripes you ARE healed and when Peter said by His stripes we WERE healed”. Can you hear those words in the whisper of that same serpent that was in the Garden with Adam and Eve? “Ha Ha, Surely you don’t think you deserve healing, you are just another sinner!”

Well, “surely I say, Satan was a liar then and is still the same liar today trying to deceive the world. Remember Satan is the one, who destroys and who does everything he can to deny us of God’s goodness and to weaken God’s truths found in His holy word.”

Satan has never delivered a single promise within his lies, yet God has never broken a promise within His word….so who should we believe? Where do we place our faith? In God and His Word, or in the doubts born of a liar who accuses the brethren day and night?

When God said to the Israelites in the desert “I am the Lord who heals you” they all believed him and 3 million were healed! (He brought them forth…there was not one feeble person among their tribes Ps 105:37)

Today thousands are still being healed by God through the power of Jesus. Just do a search on Google and you will see some amazing stories of how the power of God is healing day in and day out. I was so excited with some of the stories I found in my searches, that I created a site to get the word out and post some at; www.documentedhealings.com

So doesn’t it make sense that if “God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,” as the Bible says in Acts 10:34 then doesn’t it make sense that maybe it’s our own doubts that stand in the way between us and greater healing from God? I say this as a challenge for each of us, with great compassion and not to condemn/blame anyone left unhealed. The last thing I want, is to further beat down those seeking healing who’s prayers are not answered saying “your faith is weak”. What I’m suggesting is for most of us if not all, our faith has plenty of room to grow.

I like what FF Bosworth said;

“Don’t doubt God. If you must doubt something, doubt your doubts, because they are unreliable; but never doubt God, nor his word.” I say Amen to that!!!!

I have experienced some amazing healing in my own life, and I’ve witnessed several substantial, verifiable healing miracles in others over the past couple years, but oh how my spirit cries out for more! …..my heart so desires that greater faith to overcome ALL doubts and rings loud every day in my prayers.

I don’t think I’m alone, I see more and more followers with growing desires for a greater faith awakening within them, which I believe even this desire moving in the body of Christ, was planted by the grace of God through the Holy Spirit for our generation.

I truly believe we are entering a new time for the church where prayer will usher in a greater faith in His people and this greater faith will become the light of the world as we see greater fear, uncertainty, lawlessness and darkness spread across the globe. He is calling us to be His light in a dark world until every tribe, tongue and nation is reached with the good news of His Son ushering His return. I believe at the current speed of life and technology, that could happen soon, maybe within our generation making us the most blessed generation in over 2000 years.

Well, that is my prayer each day for all of us …. for “more God “and “more faith”…. Holy Spirit, crucify all our doubts that they may die, be buried, and resurrected with the full revelation of the Glory of Jesus! Let us believe every word from the mouth of God that it may not return to Him empty and void….. And Jesus answered them……. whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” (Matt21:21-22)

Oh Lord I plead, crush our doubts, place them under our feet with the head of the great liar, and let your word reign true through each of us as we serve you, now and forever, AMEN!

Healing at Work- Sharing the love of God!

Sharing God’s love in the workplace!
By Scott Levesque

What an amazing day I had this past week sharing the love of Jesus!

10:00AM, I had a car inspection with my mechanic- I needed tires so he sends me down the street to a used tire place run by some nice Brazilian gentlemen.

We get to talking and one guy (Ramondo) asks what I do and then asks if I could troubleshoot their network and laptop so I say sure, and noticed the guy going for his laptop is limping pretty bad up the stairs….Compassion and the love of Jesus hits me and God prompts my heart telling me I need to pray for his knee! I ask the guy what happened, and he describes a forklift accident that crushed his knee a year ago.

So after they finished changing my tires, I finally see a good moment and asked if I could pray for his knee and Ramondo asks me if I’m serious with this weird look on his face. The office manager and two other guys are standing there also wondering and asking if I’m serious, and I said “yes I lay hands and pray often for others, especially when visiting mom in the nursing home”. The office manage (Clifford) looking at me with a bit of disbelief, asks me if I’m a Christian and I tell him yes, so I also ask if he is a believer in Jesus and he nods yes along with Ramondo. Once we establish we’re all Christians apparently it’s OK for me to pray now so Ramondo gladly says “yes please pray for me” and the guy immediately sits down and pulls up his pant leg!

I wasn’t expecting quite that much enthusiasm where I needed to see the scars on his knee, but hey he wanted to show me the seriousness of the injury so I ran with it!

So we pray once and I ask him to test it out and I asked how much better his knee felt – says it’s about 10% better, so I said OK let’s pray again for more healing!

As I pray more and more for the sick, one thing God seems to be showing me is that He will often use small increments of healing, to help us build our faith if we will step out to  “trust  Him“, He’ll keep moving that “line of faith” forward into new territory for us, if we are willing to continuing praying until we see greater/full healing. I used to get pretty discouraged when I didn’t see immediate results from prayer, but now I see how God has been showing that by testing results, and then in seeing even the littlest increments of healing He is actually saying, “If you are willing step out and pray, and test what I’ve done, then I will bless you with small steps of healing when you lack greater faith to believe in the full healing.”  How cool is God??

When He showed me this, I was so moved I couldn’t hold back the tears. In this revelation, I actually see a caring Father’s love, showing us as His children, how to take small steps to take us to where He wants us to be/become with our faith. Honestly, I almost felt like God was helping me/us with training wheels until our faith is stronger! Oh such love He has for us!! If we will only step out, He will help us move that “line of faith forward” for each of us growing in our own faith!! God is such an amazing Abba!

Anyway, after praying a second time for Ramondo he says it feels about 20% better so we pray one more time and he says it now feels a whole lot better as he tests it one more time and moves the knee all around in a way he couldn’t do before! Praise Jesus the great healer!!

Then the office manager Clifford says he also has a bad knee and asks if I can pray for him. He takes me aside into the side room, we pray he receives healing and he gets up and says it feels completely better and then after walking into the office, he said he felt a lot of heat in his knee when Jesus healed it. Two for two….Amen!!

So there I am, the guy who is supposed to be full of faith stepping out asking Jesus to heal someone and what do I say to his comment? I respond like I’m surprised and I say “Really?” Duh! Thank God He is patient with me and patient building up my faith! Lol!

But of course now I quickly recover from my momentary lack of faith (double duh!), and I think “OK Lord, now we’re cooking with gas now!”

Continuing, a well dressed third man who can’t speak English is standing in the office signaling his lower back hurts, and he asks Clifford if I will pray for his back. I prayed three times in the name of Jesus and each time he said it felt better and better! Amen, Then he asks if I will pray for his heart condition, and then for his diabetes.  We were all praying and giving thanks to Jesus right in the office….so cool!! When we finished praying, the peace of God visibly fills him and he has a big smile and gives me a “thumbs up”. Does it get any better than seeing God show up? … Yay God!

I’m so revved up now at this point, that I decide further share other some things God is doing through prayer in my life, to yet a fifth man who was helping me translate while praying for the last man. So I share some successful miracles of Jesus healing with him that I’ve seen at the nursing home in the past months, and he then translates the story for the man I just prayed for….there we were, all three of us smiling, nodding our heads to the goodness of God, and giving all the glory to Jesus, standing in the middle of the most unlikely place, a used tire business!

I think it’s just so cool that God can show up anywhere, anytime, if we just dare to step out in faith! How many opportunities do we miss with our brothers and sisters to praise God outside of church because we are so often too busy to step out? The lesson for me today is that He is ALWAYS faithful and shows up when invited!! Amen

My morning isn’t over yet! Sure, I’m running late now for my noontime web support session with a client, but somehow sharing the love of God seemed so much more important! Lol! It turned out my client wasn’t upset at all, and we just rescheduled for later in the afternoon. It’s all good with God I think:)

So then, filled with the joy of the Lord, I head back to my mechanics place and I can’t help but share with him all that happened at the other tire place. I’ve only been to see him once before so I don’t know him very well. He says he too is a believer and he starts telling me how he is always defending the faith to a part time worker who is a Jehovah’s Witness, and we go on to share some deeper revelations about scripture together. It was awesome!

Here is the greater truth, I never would have known my Brazilian mechanic was a Christian if I hadn’t shared what had happened at the tire place, yet because I did, we now share an unshakeable bond as brothers in Christ!

Actually, I never would have known the other four men were also believers if I hadn’t asked if I could pray for the first man when I was prompted by the Holy Spirit. Because I took a small step of faith in offering prayer, 6 of us were able to share our Christian faith yesterday, and build up the body by praising Jesus in the workplace, and maybe most important, we all we got to see God’s love through healing in the name of Jesus!! Amen! How cool is that? I have to say, it was very a good day for rejoicing in the Lord!

I have to wonder, how many opportunities we miss each day, when we hold back from reaching out to pray in Godly love?? To be honest, for the dozens of times I’ve stepped out in faith to pray for someone over the past 9 months, I have not had one single negative or discouraging experience. Maybe having all positive encounters isn’t the norm for some, but even if I had a few “bad responses”, I think all the good ones would far outweigh the bad ones.

You would think the fact they have all been so good, would automatically cause me to pray publicly for more people each day!! I may not be there yet, but I will get to that place where I’m ministering the love of Jesus EVERY day and EVERYWHERE I go, as part of my lifestyle!!  I’ve seen so many people blessed over these past months; simply by praying, caring, and by loving them the way Jesus loved others, and I have to admit, the more I see the hungrier I become to see more and more of Jesus in my entire life, everyday, every minute!

My mechanic did end up asking me to pray for him as well and he was very eager to receive the blessings of God. We talked about his family and it turns out his wife is struggling with Lyme Disease so I’ll be returning next week to complete my car repairs and when I do, we plan to make a special trip to his home to pray for his wife in the name of Jesus!

I’ve had a lot of single positive encounters praying for others, but this is the second time in nine months where I spent the better part of 4 hours seeing the love of Jesus pour from my heart in such love and compassion, and God showed up big-time! None of it is me, the Holy Spirit is leading and teaching me about God’s real love for all of us, and all glory goes to Jesus not me!!

I’ve heard others who flow in this way all the time mention , “Love always wins” and if we approach with the right heart, God’s love never fails. Even when it may look bad outwardly, or we don;t see immediate healing, I believe people are still touched by the love of Jesus and it’s almost impossible to fail when we reach out with the power of Godly love!

God is so good and His love never fails!!!

Heaven or Hell encounter Salvation Sid Roth "It's Supernatural"

Boy returns from death coma with a meassage from God!

A MESSAGE FROM HEAVEN!

What an amazing testimony of God’s love through a young boy.

As Retah and her family were returning from one of these public speaking events in the Free State not long after she delivered the message above, her own precious tablet fell from her hands and shattered into a million pieces. The entire McPherson family was involved in a terrible motor car accident. Retah, her husband Tinus and her youngest son Josh walked away with little or no injuries, but her eldest son Aldo felt the full brunt of the impact. He was thrown from the vehicle and found unconscious on the other side of the highway.  This was the start of a long upward road of endurance relying only on God’s grace, mercy and provision.

Aldo was on life support for a long time after the accident, and during that time Retah was lifted into a new level of walking by faith and not by sight. Although Aldo suffered severe brain injuries as a result of the accident, Retha testifies: “God is good! He has awakened my Sprit to Him and I have come to know Him as a holy God who wants my life, not only my heart.”

After a few weeks in a coma, Aldo finally woke up. While he was in a coma, he had a supernatural experience where he went to heaven, saw God, the angels, Moses and Abraham. Aldo came back with one message: “Jesus is alive!” Due to the seriousness of his injuries to his head Aldo was not able to speak for a long time and related his miraculous journey by writing letters lead by the Holy Spirit – which he is still doing today.

After these series of events their lives were forever changed. Retah and Aldo co-authored a book titled “A Message from God” which relates their miracle story in detail. Retah has since retired from her mainstream job and is now busy with full-time ministry. She travels around the country and the world spreading this simple truth “Jesus is alive!”

In closing, here is an excerpt from the preface of her book A Message from God:

I’ve always confessed that I’m a Christian. I’ve always known God. I believed in the Holy Trinity and even served God.

Yet, when I look back now I realize that I was merely living a good life filled with good deeds. I didn’t really know God’s character and I had no idea what it meant to be completely sold out to Him – which is the only sacrifice that is ever acceptable In His sight. I had to live through a terrible tragedy and huge suffering, before I was finally willing to sacrifice everything, including my son to God. Only after all that, did I hand over control of my life to Him and did I get to know Him personally.

All this pain was so unnecessary! Jesus had already paid the price in full. After I had given my life to Him as a living sacrifice, I could get in line with God’s perfect plan for my life – to live in a love relationship with the living God!

Only then could I say that it didn’t matter whether I lived or died, as long as I glorified God.

For a long time I thought it was my husband’s responsibility to make me happy, but the truth is no human being can make you completely happy. Only Jesus can do that for you. He is the ANSWER to all questions; the SOLUTION to all your problems, the FULFILMENT of all your needs and desires. He is ALL things to ALL men! I tried to quench my thirst with all sorts of things like perfectionism, fame, wealth and achievement. But, now that the fire of the Holy Spirit has purified me from the inside out, I know Jesus is the fountain of living water.  He is the only One who can quench my thirst forever.

Know one thing for sure: Jesus is alive! – Retah McPherson

Heaven or Hell encounter Miracle Healing

Atheist professor saved from entering Hell! Compelling testimony!

Is Hell Real? You decide from the written testimony accompanied by the short video of this terrifying experience shared by a former atheist!

Atheist professor’s near-death experience in hell left him changed

– In some near-death experiences, people report they were drawn toward “the light.” But in this horrifying near-death experience for an atheist art professor, he was drawn into the darkness of hell, which dramatically altered the course of his life.

“I was a double atheist,” says Howard Storm, who became a tenured art professor at Northern Kentucky University by age 27. “I was a know-it-all college professor, and universities are some of the most closed-minded places there are,” he notes.

On the last day of a three-week European art tour he led, his group had returned to their hotel in Paris after a visit to the artist Delacroix’s home and studio. As Howard stood in his room with his wife and another student, suddenly he screamed and dropped to the floor in agony.

“I had a perforation of the small stomach, known as the duodenum,” he recalls. At first, Howard thought he was shot, and he glanced around the room to see if he could spot a smoking gun. As he writhed in pain on the ground, kicking and screaming, his wife called for a doctor.

“They said I needed surgery immediately,” Howard says. “It’s like having a burst appendix. I was told that if they don’t get to it within five hours, you’re probably going to die.”

Howard had the misfortune of a falling ill on a Saturday in a country with socialized medicine, and no doctor could be found. “French doctors do seven surgeries a week, and after they do the seven surgeries, they take the weekend off,” he discovered.

They placed him on a bed without sheets or a pillow and offered no pain medication. He waited in the room for 10 hours. “I was just lying there going south,” Howard says. Meanwhile, intestinal contents were leaking into his abdominal cavity, which would soon lead to peritonitis, septic shock and certain death.

At 8:30 p.m. a nurse came in and said they were still unable to find a doctor, but they would try to find one the next day, Sunday.

“I had been struggling very hard to stay alive, but when she said there was no doctor, I knew it was time to stop fighting,” Howard says.

Yet the thought of death scared him. “I was terrified of dying because it meant lights out, the end of the story,” he notes. “It seemed horrible that at 38-years-old, when I felt powerful and successful in my life, it would all come to an end in such a ridiculously pitiful way.”

Howard made an impassioned farewell to his wife, and told her to tell their friends and the rest of his family goodbye. Then he lost consciousness.

It wasn’t long after he lost consciousness that he had a very unusual out-of-body experience, and found himself standing next to his bed, looking at himself lying there. As he stood there, he noticed he didn’t feel the pain in his stomach. He felt more alive than ever, and his senses seemed more heightened than usual.

He tried to communicate with his wife and another man in the room, but they didn’t respond, which frustrated him. “I was glad I didn’t have the pain, but also I was very confused and disturbed by the situation.”

“I saw my body lying on the bed, but I refused to believe it was me. How could that be me if I was standing there,” he wondered.

Suddenly he heard people outside the room calling for him by name. They spoke English, without a French accent, which seemed strange, because everyone in the hospital either spoke French or heavily accented English.

“Come with us,” they said. “Hurry up, let’s go.”

Howard went to the doorway. “Are you from the doctor?” he asked. “I need to have surgery. I’m sick and I’ve been waiting a long time.”

“We know all about you,” one said. “We’ve been waiting for you. It’s time for you to go. Hurry up.”

Howard left the room and started to walk with them down a long hallway, which was very dimly lit – almost dingy. “They took me on a very long journey through a grey space that got increasingly darker and darker,” he recalls.

They walked a long time, and Howard wondered why he was not tired when he had just suffered the worst day of his life.

“Where are we going? Howard asked. “How come it’s taking so long? What is the doctor’s name?”

“Shut up,” one said. “Be quiet,” another said. “Don’t ask questions.”

Howard’s fear and apprehension grew at the same time he lost trust in his guides. “Finally it was so dark I was terrified and I said, ‘I’m not going any farther. I want to go back.”

“You’re almost there,” one replied.

Howard dug in his heels. “I’m not going any farther,” he said firmly.

A fight ensues

His guides began to push and pull at him. Howard fought back, but he was horribly outnumbered.

“We had a big fight and the fight turned into them annihilating me, which they did slowly and with much relish,” he says. “Mostly they were biting and tearing at me. This went on for a long time. They did other things to humiliate and violate me which I don’t talk about.”

When Howard was no longer “amusing” to them, he collapsed on the ground, ripped apart, unable to move.

He lay there motionless for a few moments, completely spent. Then he was surprised by a small voice inside his head that said, ‘Pray to God.’

He thought, ‘I don’t pray. I don’t even believe in God.’

Then he heard the voice a second time, ‘Pray to God.’

‘But I wouldn’t know how to pray even if I wanted to pray,’ he thought. Whose voice was this, he wondered? It sounded like his voice, but the words were completely foreign to his

own thinking.

Then he heard the voice a third time repeat the same message. His mind drifted back to his days in Sunday school as a child. “I tried to remember things I memorized when I was very young,” he says. He struggled to think of something he could pray.

Then he managed to blurt out, “The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want…”

When the people around him heard his attempt to pray, they became enraged. “There is no God and nobody can hear you,” they cried, along with other obscenities. “If you keep praying we will really hurt you.”

But Howard noticed something curious. The more he prayed and began to mention God,

the more they backed away from him.

Emboldened, he began to shout out bits and pieces of the Lord’s Prayer, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” and “God Bless America.” Finally, he was screaming any fragments of God’s truth he could muster from the moldy recesses of his memory bank.

It seemed to work! Even in the darkness, he could tell they had fled, but not too far away.

As he lay there, Howard began to review his life. “I came to the conclusion I led a crummy life and I had gone down the sewer pipe of the universe. I had gone into the septic tank with other human garbage. I was being processed by the garbage people into garbage like them.”

“Whatever life was supposed to be about, I missed it,” he thought. “What I received was what I deserved and the people who attacked me were people like me. They were my kindred spirits. Now I will be stuck with them forever.” Feelings of self-loathing and hopelessness filled his mind.

His thoughts floated back again to himself as a nine-year-old in Sunday School, “I remembered myself singing “Jesus Loves Me,” and I could feel it inside me. As a child, I thought Jesus was really cool and he was my buddy and he would take care of me.”

“But even if Jesus is real, why would he care about me? he thought. “He probably hates my guts. I’m not going to think anymore; I’m going to ask him.”

“I’ve got nothing else to lose. I’ll give Jesus a try.”

A cry for help

Then he yelled into the darkness, “Jesus, please save me!”

Within an instant, a brilliant light appeared that came closer and closer. He found himself bathed in a beautiful light, and for the first time he could clearly see his own body’s miserable condition, ghastly for his own eyes to behold. “I was almost all gore.”

Immediately he recognized Jesus, the King

of Kings, the Rescuer, the Deliverer. “His arms reached down and touched me and everything healed up and came back together,” he recalls. “He filled me with a love I never knew existed.”

Then he picked up Howard, like one football player picking up a fallen teammate on the field, put his arms around him, and Howard cried like a baby in His arms. “He carried me out of there and we headed to where God lives.”

In his mind, Howard began to think that Jesus made a terrible mistake. “I’m garbage and I don’t belong in heaven,” he thought.

They stopped moving, and both Howard and Jesus were hanging in space, somewhere between heaven and hell. “We don’t make mistakes,” Jesus said tenderly.

“He could read everything in my mind and put His voice into my head,” Howard recalls. “We had very rapid, instantaneous conversations.”

Then Jesus told Howard He had angels who would show him his life. “It was a terrible experience because my life deteriorated after adolescence. I saw I became a selfish, unloving person. I was successful, a full tenured art professor at 27, the department head, but I was a jerk.”

In this replay, he saw his heavy drinking and adultery. “I cheated on my wife proudly. It was horrible.”

For the first time he realized the way he lived his life hurt Jesus. “I was in the arms of the most wonderful, holy, loving, kind person and we’re looking at this stuff. Embarrassing doesn’t even begin to describe it.”

As they watched together, Howard could see the pain and disappointment on the face of Jesus. “When I did these things it was like sticking a knife into his heart.”

“Do you have any questions?” Jesus asked.

“I have a million questions,” Howard replied, and proceeded to unburden himself of anything and everything he could imagine asking an omniscient being. Jesus answered Howard’s questions kindly and patiently.

When Howard couldn’t think of anything else to ask, he said, “I’m ready to go to heaven now.”

“You’re not going to heaven. You’re going back to the world,” Jesus replied.

Howard began to argue, but it was to no avail. Jesus told him to go back and live his life differently.

Going back

At 9:00 p.m., Howard was back in his hospital room in Paris. Less than 30 minutes had elapsed since he lost consciousness.

As Howard opened his eyes, he heard the nurse say, “The doctor arrived at the hospital and you’re going to have the surgery.”

As they wheeled him out of his room on a gurney, he saw his wife in the hallway. “Everything is going to be really good now,” he said to her. When she heard him, she cried, thinking they were brave words.

When Howard emerged from surgery, with the effects of the anesthesia wearing off, he spoke to his wife. “It’s all love,” he told her. “You don’t have to suffer anymore.”

“You need to sleep,” she replied, thinking he was slightly addled from the drugs. Then he awakened again and began to tell her about Jesus and the angels and heaven and hell.

“She was an atheist and she didn’t like it. She thought I lost my mind.” Sadly, Howard’s marriage ended in divorce after she left him many years later.

When his strength returned, Howard began to devour the Bible. “Since none of my atheist friends believed me, I started memorizing verses and I would give them Bible lectures, but that didn’t go over very well,” he recalls.

He grew “desperate” for fellowship in a church, and began to attend Christ Church in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, part of United Church of Christ. Howard’s pastor worked with him patiently, and after three years, Howard was ordained as a lay minister in his church.

Sensing a deeper call into ministry, he attended United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio and later pastored a church in Covington, Ohio.

He also wrote a book about his experience, “My Descent Into Death,” which he says was written primarily to non-believers. Howard and his second wife, Marcia, a strong Christian, are both involved in missionary work in Belize. He maintains a passion for painting, with much of his art devoted to spiritual themes.

John G Lake

John G Lake on Christians

…..Christians as a rule are covered with shadows, with fears, and doubts. That is not the realm of God at all. That is the realm of darkness.

Christianity lives in the light. Christianity lives in the glory. Christianity lives in the power of God, in the eternal presence of God. And it is that consciousness of God in union with him that gives to the soul strength and assurance and confidence and helps the soul to go on its way, regardless of conditions and circumstances, so that he is not being governed by this thing or that, but by the faith of God.

Instead of conditions controlling him, he is controlling conditions. That is the power of God.
John G Lake 1922

Miracle Healing

Husband Celebrates Miracle: ‘Brain Dead’ Wife Wakes Up in Hospital

Husband Celebrates Miracle: ‘Brain Dead’ Wife Wakes Up in Hospital

DARWIN, Australia — A woman who was diagnosed as being brain dead has recovered three days after her husband begged doctors to put in a breathing tube before switching off a ventilator at an Australian hospital, the Northern Territory News reported Wednesday.

Gloria Cruz, 56, underwent brain surgery after a tumor was discovered when she suffered a stroke on March 7 and was rushed to the Royal Darwin Hospital in Darwin, Northern Territory.

Doctors told her husband Tani Cruz, 51, the case was “hopeless” and she would probably die within 48 hours following the surgery.

After two weeks, a breathing tube was inserted in Mrs Cruz’s mouth and the ventilator was turned off. Hospital staff were stunned when she woke from her coma three days later.

When a doctor recommended that the ventilator be removed and Gloria Cruz be allowed to die, her husband told them, “I’m a Catholic — I believe in miracles.”

“I told him that God knows how much I love her — that I don’t want her to suffer but I don’t want her to leave us,” he said.

A doctor described her recovery as “a miracle.”

Mrs Cruz is now alert and getting around in a wheelchair at the hospital.

“She’s well on the way to recovery,” her husband said.
