#6 Sign to Encourage

Through my life I have witnessed the signs of God’s presence on several notable occasions.  The first miraculous sign I remember hearing about was told by a preacher at a Christian conference run by the evangelist Harry Greenwood from South Chard.  The conference was at Bognor Regis Butlins camp and I had been taken thereContinue reading “#6 Sign to Encourage”

#5 Personal Testimony: Psychological Healing

Many years ago I received a psychological healing after a traumatic experience which constantly troubled me.  I was at Taizé in France and it was Easter time.  At the Good Friday liturgy of the cross I saw that some young people were approaching the cross on their knees.  I decided that I had to doContinue reading “#5 Personal Testimony: Psychological Healing”

#4 Laws of Nature are General; Miracles are Specific

God has given humans the ability to decide on their actions and to desire outcomes.  The human will interacts with God’s will, and this is important in the sphere of miracles.  On occasions, through prayer illness can be reversed and health restored, and death can be forestalled.  Healing and the prolonging of life depend onContinue reading “#4 Laws of Nature are General; Miracles are Specific”

#2 Gullibility, Credulity or Faith?

Part of me doubts the miracles I hear about – maybe there was always a simple, natural explanation for what’s been told me was a miracle.  Maybe what I heard or read about was exaggeration, or wishful thinking on the part of devout, but gullible religious people.  Maybe money was involved like on God channelsContinue reading “#2 Gullibility, Credulity or Faith?”

#12 Risen From the Dead

On Sunday, the first day of the week, the women returned to the tomb carrying spices. There was Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, her daughter Salome and Joanna. They find the tomb empty and bump into an angel, they are distressed but the angel says that Jesus rose from the dead and is goingContinue reading “#12 Risen From the Dead”

#11 Condemned to Death

Jesus is condemned to death and Pilate has the charge written and fastened to the cross: it read ‘Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews’. Women could move silently, heads covered, without fear of arrest because they were not recognized as entities before the law. They stood at the foot of the cross. MaryContinue reading “#11 Condemned to Death”

#10 The Final Journey

It is now only a matter of time, and Jesus prepares his disciples who understand absolutely nothing. The last supper is celebrated with the twelve apostles in the upper room. Jesus says one of them will betray him, and they have no idea which one. John ‘the disciple who Jesus loved’ asks him, Who? AndContinue reading “#10 The Final Journey”
