Yesterday, I wrote a blog called When the Holy Spirit Takes Over. Little did I know that these exact words were used by a doctor who helped raise a man from the dead in the pilot episode of Project Afterlife. Following in the footsteps of It’s a Miracle on Pax Television, Destination America’s new show interviews eyewitnesses and individuals who have died for a short period of time before coming back to life.
Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security, Jeremiah 33:6.
About a year ago, I started a conversation with a co-worker. Taking an unusual, yet interesting turn, this man revealed that years earlier he died and came back to life. Arrested for underage drinking, this teenager died in the back of a cop car. Although his memory is blurred, the next thing he remembers is waking in a hospital bed. Due to his severe condition, the police officer never issued a ticket, giving him a second chance just as God gave this man a new lease on life.
And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven, James 5:15.
There will always be skeptics of healing, miracles and raising someone from the dead. Especially, if you believe the Spirit pored out upon the disciples on the Day of Pentecost ceased following their deaths, limited to first century apostles. Yet, if you check out Project Afterlife next Sunday night at 10pm eastern time, maybe your beliefs will be swayed. Either way, sit back, listen to the testimonies shared and be open to the healing power of Christ.
