have seen so many wonderful miracles from God
that it may be hard for many to believe them!
These are super natural ... paranormal ...
inexplicable by science or any laws of physics
that we know. The keywords here: "that we
know" ... Fact is, we don't know very much!
Does that come as a shock to you? I always say;
"when man can make an apple that is edible
I'll trust man" ... until then, I'll trust
I will write about some of
the more profound miracles here but rest assured
there are many I have witnessed that are less
dramatic but nevertheless miraculous.
One of the first miracles, I
wrote about on my 'born again' page, www.john33.com/bornagain.htm
... I will duplicate here, this is copied from
that page. I will number the miracles that I
write about here.
Lightening... thunder and
heavy rainfall... July, 1971... Hot Springs,
Arkansas... Central Avenue, just south of Oaklawn
Park Race Track. I was getting into my car, I had
just left a small corner grocery store. The
moment I got into the car I could feel His
presence. I knew He was in the car with me as
well as I knew my own name... I
"Jesus!" I kept crying out to Him,
"You're Here" "I Can Feel
Tears overwhelmed me and I began to cry
uncontrollably because I had never felt such love
as I felt at that moment. When the "Holy
Spirit" entered me It was as though an
electrical wire touched the back of my neck and
in a flash I was free of pain and I could turn my
head. I was healed in that instant of a chronic
disorder that had been associated with a facial
paralysis. I had recovered from the paralysis
about 6 months prior but chronic neck pain had
"hung on" and was a constant reminder
that I was not completely well. In that
"flash" I was healed of that physical
condition and at that same moment I truly came to
know Him and love Him. In an instant I was
"born again"... Actually I was
"begotten" but I knew it to be
I hurried home and tried to
explain to my wife what had happened, she said
she understood but I knew then as I know now, she
could not have understood. Not her fault... until
you've experienced such a thing you simply can't
understand or perhaps even believe such an
experience in its fullness. Years later she
experienced an instant healing, I'll tell more
about that here on this page. That will be
1977 was the year. My
youngest son was almost 2 years old. My wife was
in the early stages of an arthritic condition.
The knuckle on her index finger was so swollen
that she was almost unable to change my son's
diaper. Her condition was rapidly deteriorating.
I was in bed reading the
bible and my wife and I began talking about the
Lord and her arthritic condition. I asked her if
she would like to pray and ask for healing. She
agreed and we prayed together. As in so many
cases, at the end of my prayer, The Lord told me
to tell her
to ask Him for the healing. She cried and asked
for the healing, at that moment she cried out
that she could feel a warming sensation in her
hand, she declared that she was being healed!
I asked her to declare it
before someone, I suggested she call my mother
and claim the healing and witness the miracle
from God. She did and she was completely healed
for the next 28 years. I think the arthritis has
started again recently, 30 years later. This may
simply be God's plan for her life as she is 61
years of age at this writing. Many of us have
chronic disorders from the natural aging process
and it may well be it is as simple as that.
30 years ago... A healing,
from arthritis, a miracle from God in the form of
a super-natural, instantaneous healing!
The year was very near the
time of Miracle 2, described above or perhaps a
I was in my early 30's and
for about 15 years I had a small 'bump' behind my
left ear. It was about the size of a large b.b. -
for those who don't know what a b.b. is it is
about 1/8 of an inch in diameter, or slightly
This bump was unchanged
during all those years, then one day I noticed
that it was considerably larger and had become
much softer. I went to my doctor who happened to
be a very highly regarded surgeon. He expressed
concern and told me it did not look good (bad
prognosis) and we should cut it out immediately.
He scheduled an emergency appointment which was
to be within a few days.
That evening I was on an out
of town business trip and some of my associates
maintained an apartment there in that town. We
were visiting and one of the "more
wayward" of the group asked me what it meant
to be "saved". I began to explain it to
him and we had a long conversation. I witnessed
until about 2AM, then I had a strange urge to
drive back home. A two hour drive mostly
interstate... I headed home.
I'll never forget the
location on the interstate where it happened...
After talking with my
associate for hours about Christ and salvation,
it was very easy to
"get-into-the-spirit" - I prayed and
did just that! Those of you who have been through
that experience, you know how certain it is! I
could feel the presence of Jesus and the love
that filled the car was beyond words. I was
driving up the interstate, praising Him and
suddenly I heard myself saying, "You could
heal that bump behind my ear if you wanted
to." He told me to touch it and ask for a
healing. I did. I went back to my prayer session
and praised Him for a while longer, then settled
into my seat, turned the radio up and drove home.
The next morning when I
awoke, I felt for the bump and it was gone!
I went on to the doctor as
scheduled and he was amazed! He said I was very
lucky that it was gone because he confessed that
he was convinced it was not going to be good for
I shamefully admit that I
did not tell the doctor about my prayer
experience. I have never forgiven myself for not
telling him, that could have been for his
learning experience. That miracle may have
occurred for him to see the power of God. I have
asked forgiveness from God many times for the
failing to witness that to the doctor. We should
ALWAYS make these miracles known! That's what
they are for! A testimony for the unbelievers as
well as reinforcement for believers. That was
about 28 to 29 years ago years ago and the bump
has never returned.
He not only healed me, He
fixed my car!
I wrote about this miracle
on the 'Healings' page... www.john33.com/healings.htm
... I will duplicate here, this is copied from
Summer, 1976, Forest City,
At the time I was 31 years
of age, living in Hot Springs, Arkansas, about a
2 1/2 hour drive to Forest City where I was
running sales leads for a home improvement
company. A few days before, I had a small
"bump" surgically removed from my
forearm, nothing to it, just a few stitches. The
first night out my arm became slightly inflamed,
I was running a mild temperature and the area on
my arm was red in color. I did not feel well at
all. The weather was hot and humid, a typical
summer day in the "Mississippi Delta"
I was driving a near-new
1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. At the time I
only had a few thousand miles on the car. Running
down country/county addresses in the heat was no
fun even though the car was air conditioned and
very comfortable. For no apparent reason the air
conditioning quit! August heat, fever, sick, and
now... no air conditioning. My first thought was:
Guess I'll "pack it in" and head for
home. I had a young family and I was the only
bread-winner... my wife did not work, she was a
full time housewife and mother... I needed to do
Just a few months previous,
my mother, a devout Christian and prayer warrior
had given me a book. I think
the title was: "PRAISING GOD IN ALL
SITUATIONS." Well, I had a thought:
"I'll put the book to test."
I began doing what the author of that little book
taught. I started praising God and thanking him
for causing the air conditioning to fail, I
praised and thanked Him for my fever, I thanked
him for the opportunity to exercise my faith and
continued to give Him praise. I explained that I
knew it was for my own good and that something
good and great would come from it all. I kept
repeating my praises and thanking him for every
unfortunate happening in my life as well as all
of the wonderful things in my life. I reasoned
that the overcoming of the unfortunate things in
my life had helped me to know Him. I
began to mean every word.
REMEMBER... AT FIRST I DID
NOT MEAN A WORD OF IT...
However, I kept on praising
him and praying. I kept asking my prayer be heard
in the name of Jesus. Soon I began to
"feel" something happening... I began
to believe that it truly was a blessing! I began
to "get into the spirit" and within a
few minutes I was meaning every word and my faith
began to swell! Now I was thanking him and
meaning every word of it! All of this took about
15 - 30 minutes (or so)... THEN THE AIR
CONDITIONING CAME ON! It started working as well
as ever and the car cooled down. Soon (I can't
remember if it was immediately or over hours) my
arm was well, my fever left and I felt fine!
The next few days passed, I
finished running my sales leads, made several
sales and actually had a good week. What a trip!
BACK HOME FROM THE TRIP...
The next day after getting
home I was going to lunch at my favorite luncheon
restaurant in Hot Springs. It just so happened my
cousin had a radiator shop and he specialized in
air conditioning repair, his shop was just across
the street from my favorite little luncheon
Now remember, my car was new
and still covered under warranty but the air was
working fine and I did not want to go to the
trouble explaining all of this to the dealership
While on my way to lunch I
dropped my car off across the street and asked my
cousin to take a look and see if he could see any
reason for my air to be intermittent.
"Did you find anything?" I asked. My
cousin said, "No... but
let's check that "inline" fuse on the
fire wall." We discovered that the fuse had
"blown" but had miraculously melted
itself back together. I have a background in
electronics and I can tell you: THAT'S
IMPOSSIBLE! But it happened! God fixes cars too!
I have used that method
(praising God in all situations) a few times
since and it still works! What a great little
book! I wish I could remember the author and the
title for sure. If I find it, rest assured I will
post it on this site. You have to realize that
was 1/4 century ago. I bet some of you know the
book, let me know!
This miracle was granted
while I was in my "backslidden" period.
A time when I was in rebellion and acting a total
fool. This was shortly after I backslid and
rebelled. It seems that while I had turned my
back on God He was still with me.
A lady friend, who I worked
with and knew very well was going to have breast
implants. She was affluent and vain, as many
people are, who have money and tremendous pride.
She did not have a relationship with God but she
honored Him by acknowledging Him and never
speaking against Him or His people. She further
knew that I had a relationship with Him at one
time and she also knew that I still acknowledged
His love and power... Even though I was living
outside of His doctrine and in rebellion.
While being examined and
prepped for her implants, the doctors found a
tumor, tests showed it to be a malignant tumor.
Now she was going to be looking at the loss of
her breast, not enhancement! What a reversal! She
was depressed and crying when she asked me to
pray for her. I felt like such a hypocrite to
come to God with a prayer request while being so
We sat in the car, and I
began to pray, soon I was actually able to
"get into the spirit." I felt His
presence, I knew He was there. As I mentioned
earlier, He usually asks me to do something or
for the person I am praying for, to respond by
doing something. He told me to tell her to ask
Him for the healing and to mean it! She agreed
and I really believe she "got into the
spirit" as she cried tears and asked for
healing, I felt it was to be.
A few days later, she gave
me the report: The tumor had mysteriously gone
away and the implants were back on schedule. I
personally thought it would have been more proper
to forego the implants and concentrate more on
serving God! However, she went on with the
Since then, she has become
very religious, even taught a Sunday school
I don't know what her
relationship with God is today but she has become
a tremendous financial success. For some reason,
our relationship was terminated and I never hear
At the time of this miracle
I had been reinstated as a 'begotten' child of
God. I had suffered tremendously and God brought
me back into His 'fold'. I had been humbled,
punished (severely) and had grown tremendously in
knowledge and spiritual strength. He had even
influenced me (made me) to write a novel for Him,
"THE KING'S 12." If you are interested
you can find the link to that free-read on the
opening page of John33, the link is near the
bottom of the page.
A very special friend who
shared a lot of spiritual dialogue with me for
about 6 years at that time, was diagnosed with a
very rare form of cancer. She was told that only
two people in the state of Arkansas knew much
about this rare cancer. They were both professors
and the one she selected had established his
The first surgery was
performed. Within weeks or months, it came back!
With a vengeance! It was much worse and had
spread. The second surgical procedure was
performed. It came back!! This time the doctor
was preparing her for plastic body parts (3rd
surgery) and a horrible lifestyle, if she
survived at all.
I was praying for her one
evening (About 1996) and I felt the Holy Spirit
of God fill the room. I knew at that moment He
was there and He told me she would be healed. I
completely believed and was anxiously awaiting
the good report from the doctors. Time passed and
finally the day of surgery came. I was very upset
and puzzled! I angrily asked God "why"
... after all, He assured me she was healed.
The surgery was performed,
the doctor came into the waiting room and made
the announcement: "I performed the surgery,
there was nothing there, it looked like God got
there before I did."
That was about eight years
ago. She's healed! This doctor is not a follower
of Jesus/God but that was his remark.
2002 was the year of the
miracle but I will start in September 2001.
My brother, who was eight
years older than I, was diagnosed with pancreatic
cancer. He fought a long, hard battle. He was 64
years of age at the time. During the Thanksgiving
holiday period, my sister had come to Arkansas to
be with my brother, from her home state of
During a prayer session,
which consisted of my brother, my sister and
me... I think but am not sure that my brother's
wife was present. While my sister was praying I
felt a tremendous amount of impatience, that's
the best way I can describe it, perhaps the word
"anxious" is equally descriptive. As I
was praying, The Lord spoke to me and told me
tell my brother that he was already healed if he
would make a covenant with God and truly
intend to honor the promise.
The promise/covenant was to ask forgiveness for
some sins he had committed against me, my sister
and others that I can't even begin to name.
However, I was instructed (by God) to NOT tell my
brother what the covenant-promise was. The
"knowing" from God was only to tell him
to make the agreement and promise... my brother
would know the topic. For some reason God did not
want me to reveal the details of the covenant...
looking back I wonder why my brother did not ask?
My sister asked what the
confession and covenant involved... I told her
what the agreement involved. I also told a few
close friends about the message. Looking back I
have come to believe the reason that it was
"okay" to tell my sister was because it
was a trial for my sister and (ultimately) my
brother's wife and (grown) children. I don't
claim to fully understand all of that but that is
what I came to understand. My sister was being
tested as well as my brother's family, as to how
they would "handle" the matter... that
is an entire story within itself... I won't
broach that subject here and now. There is too
much that I don't understand for me to discuss
My brother, later asked my
sister if I understood what the covenant was. It
seemed as though he was unaware. She said she
explained to my brother that she did not know the
I kept waiting for Brother
to make the request for forgiveness (confession
& repentance) so he could be healed. It never
came. He died May 9, 2002 and was buried May 13.
The entire time Brother was
suffering I was suffering severe pain in my right
side and abdomen. I was going through test after
test and was given a date for a colonoscopy, May
13, 2002. I knew in my spirit that my brother
would either die or be buried that day. For
several weeks while waiting for the dreaded test,
when people would ask when the appointment was,
it would remind me that, that date had something
to do with my brother's demise. I had no idea
"why" that was important.
Upon my brother's death, my
sister asked my brother's wife and sons to not
have the funeral on May 13 because I needed to
keep my appointment and she was afraid I would
cancel the appointment in order to attend the
funeral... which I would have done had God not
prepared me that May 13 was to be critical. The
family chose to have the funeral on May 13 and it
was as though God was telling me to keep my
appointment. I thought it strange that the family
would not honor the request. At the time I
thought it was inconsiderate and insulting to
me... his only brother was denied a very special
request? That spoke volumes!
May 13, the colonoscopy was
finished, I looked at my watch, it was 11:30 AM,
I figured that at just about that time they were
lowering my brother's coffin into the grave. I
was sitting across the desk from the doctor as he
gave me the results. "A large malignant mass
that had probably already spread." Colon
My dear friend, Terry, was
there with me as the doctor gave me the
"death sentence"... she was in shock!
God had told me weeks earlier that I had cancer
"but not to worry, HE would heal me"...
At that moment I was not thinking about HIS
promise about healing, I was only accepting the
impending death sentence.
As we were leaving the
hospital, I told Terry, "not to worry, I
would not be a problem, I would go to a hospice
unit and not be a burden to her."
For several days I had
forgotten God's promise.
On May 17, I was scheduled,
for surgery, to have an 'Infusion Port' installed
in my chest to accommodate the needle for
chemotherapy treatment. This device looks like a
small golf ball that is cut in-half and it had a
catheter, about 18 inches long that would be
inserted into an artery or vein which would
almost reach my heart. This way the Chemo needle
could be inserted into the Infusion Port and not
violate the veins in my arms.
Well... That morning when
preparing to go to the hospital, I noticed there
was no blood! No bleeding for the first time in a
year! I had NO SYMPTOMS anywhere and NO SYMPTOMS
of cancer! I was healed! I went ahead with the
surgery to install the 'I' Port, I felt I had
better not cancel, it would not hurt to be ready
if I should need to go ahead with the treatments.
When things happen this fast you don't know what
Don't ask me... I don't know
why I continued. I needed to talk to my doctor. I
needed to explain to him that I was healed. That
(appointment) would be several days later. The
chemotherapy was to start in about a week. I
would see the doctor before then and have more
tests, I thought.
I explained to the doctor
and he asked, "Who healed you?" I told
him, "GOD HEALED ME"... He pulled out
the pictures which were taken during the
colonoscopy... "Look at this... this is a
VERY large malignancy" he continued and
convinced me that it would be far better to take
the chemo and radiation for 6 weeks because it
had probably spread. "Better to be safe than
sorry"... I reluctantly agreed.
Six weeks of chemo and
radiation daily, then a month of rest, then
I explained to the surgical
team that I had been healed and they made a
promise. They promised that after putting me
"under anesthesia" on the table, if
there was nothing there they would not cut. They
lied! They cut out a section!
Eight hours later I was in
recovery and told the good news, everything went
well and there was no "bag" .... no
colostomy! I was going to live a normal life
without any "devices."
One week later, after asking
several times, I finally got the report from the
lab results, NO CANCER! The doctors and medical
team had avoided me because there was nothing
there and they had promised that they would not
cut me open if there was nothing there!
By the way... There was a
reason God allowed the surgery to be performed,
that's another story!
This miracle is a
continuation of 'Miracle 7'...
About two weeks after the
surgery, I became very sick. I went to the
emergency room where they performed a cat-scan
(spelling). The results showed that my colon was
leaking! Where the colon had been reconnected was
leaking into my lower abdomen.
I am not a doctor and my
terminology may be flawed but you get the idea.
I was checked into the
hospital and they readied me for surgery the next
day. I was taken off of anything by mouth. The
plan was to have me drink the radioactive dye and
have another cat-scan the next morning to
determine exactly how much leakage was occurring.
I was sickened by the
thought of being opened up again, I still had the
staples (metal stitches) from the original
At the time they were
telling me all this, God spoke to me. He spoke in
that way that is so reassuring, there was no
doubt... He told me, "Not to worry that He
was going to take care of it."
I went into my room after
the scan, knowing I would be okay. I overheard
the nurses at the station, remarking that,
"they were to get me ready for
A few hours later a young
doctor walked into my room, smiling from
ear-to-ear. He said, "I have good news for
you! You are not leaking anymore!" I was
discharged and on my way home within a few hours.
Thanks God! Thank you Jesus!
YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE
WRITING THIS PAGE AND THIS IS AN UPDATE.
This just happened August
Because my blood pressure
has been hard/impossible to control I was
scheduled for an MRI targeting the renal artery.
The results of the scan of my renal arteries
showed renal blockage! My very capable
cardiologist performed the renal angiogram and
found no blockage yet the MRI showed blockage!
Another miracle! Thanks Jesus and praise God!
AS OF 9-1-16 I HAVE NOT BEEN
HEALED OF A PROBLEM OF THE LOWER SPINE. PLEASE
MENTION ME IN YOUR PRAYERS. IT'S PAINFUL!
I HAD JUST RECENTLY
REMEMBERED THIS MIRACLE!
It was late summer - early
fall, 1992 and I had written and recorded THE
KINGS 12... A novel that God had given me to
write. I had recorded it with a professional
microphone and the quality was very good. At the
time of the writing and recording I was living in
an old house that had been in the family as
rental property and it was located on a very busy
and noisy street. Motorcycles, large trucks and
cars would rumble by and actually shake the walls
of the old structure. It was shocking that none
of this background noise could be heard on the
recording. I was amazed as this fact was a
miracle within itself. A few days passed after I
had finished recording the novel and I had
decided to add a few notes to the recording, only
to find that the microphone was not working. I
had served in the military as an electrical
systems specialist in the USAF and then had
worked for the IBM Corporation for 4 years as a
"Customer Engineer," which involved
trouble-shooting electronic systems on IBM
equipment. I was well qualified to troubleshoot a
faulty microphone. After taking the cover off of
the mike the problem was apparent! A wire had
been cold-soldered at the factory and had
completely separated from the terminal and was
over 1/4 inch separated from the solder-lug... it
didnt appear to have ever been soldered but I'm
reasonably sure it had to have been to pass
quality control?? In plain English, I had
recorded a clear set of master tapes with a
disconnected wire from the microphone!
IMPOSSIBLE! BUT IT HAPPENED! Remember, there was
no background noise on the tapes either! It was
as clear as if it had been done in a HI TECH,
STATE OF THE ART, RECORDING STUDIO! GOD IS
AMAZING! The miracles I have seen by God are
WHY ME? Why have I been so
blessed to see HIS handy-work? I thank HIM and
praise HIM for allowing me to see HIS miracles. I
have to be very careful when telling people of
these miracles because people simply do not
readily believe me, yet I must shout HIS miracles
from the rooftop, for it would be a sin to keep
these things secret. Can you see now why I am so
confused as to why HE has allowed me to suffer
from this excruciating back pain! I cannot find a
doctor that will do surgery. The doctor I first
saw is demonic and refused to do surgery because
the pain did not radiate down my leg(s). It only
hurts in my back and hips but has destroyed my
life, I have been bed-ridden for more than a year
because the pain is so bad when I walk more than
20 to 30 feet that I have to sit or recline after
a few seconds/minute. I have seen another surgeon
but he has based his decision not to go further
based on the original (demonic) doctor's report,
which is wrong and intentional.
I knew I was in the hands of
a demon after I had an MRI performed in his
office but before I had met him in person. Then,
it was too late to turn around. I am on Medicare
and you don't simply "flip" doctors
because you discern that they are demonic. This
demonic individual has had his way and thus far
God has not stepped up for me. Satan and his
little helpers love to get a follower of Jesus in
their jaws of death... even if that demon happens
to be a doctor/surgeon. They come in all sizes
and shapes! I pray for Spirit-filled medical care
providers but that is not easy to find out when
great distances are involved and I live in a
small town which requires that I must usually
travel to receive medical attention beyond basic
dentistry and my primary care physician.
Please pray for me, Jesus
can do it in a heartbeat if it be HIS will. I
keep wondering why HE chooses to heal sometime
and for some things. I wonder what I'm lacking in
this situation?? Such a mystery! IF I COULD JUST
GET INTO THE SPIRIT FOR JUST A BRIEF MOMENT AND
REMEMBER TO ASK FOR THIS MIRACLE HEALING!!!! IT'S
ON ME AND I DON'T KNOW WHY? I HAVE THE FAITH IN
HIM BUT I'M LACKING SOMEWHERE!!! Paul's
"thorn in his flesh" comes to mind.
P.S. I feel so wrong! My
wife suffers from knee and failed back surgery
too! Would you please pray for her too? Her name
is Jeanie and we thank you! I am so used to
addressing my page titles and the content that I
failed to include her in the prayer request.
