"All of a sudden these words came out, 'Father, I cry out for this man's soul, if he does not know You, raise him from the dead.'"
EDITOR'S NOTE: One of the "callings" that we feel the Lord has given us here at BCN, is to report on the good and often miraculous things God is doing on Earth in our time. In pursuing this, we've uncovered some wonderfully encouraging reports from all over the world, some even about resurrections. It's always amazing to read a testimony about someone being raised from the dead in another—often third world—country, but when it happens in your own nation, it's especially exciting. Such is the case this time, with the story that follows, and my thanks to Pastor Kenneth Lieberman for alerting me to it. As incredible and newsworthy as the report seems, it has unfortunately received little press coverage. I'm hoping our subscribers will not only read this remarkable account, but pass it on to many others—to the glory of God. Nothing is impossible with Him! -Aimee Herd, BCN.
(Florida, USA)—Just a story about Dr. Chauncey Crandall would be interesting enough on its own; a Christian doctor who practices medicine in Palm Beach, Florida, and prays with his patients.
"The reason I pray for people is because I found, early in my trained practice, that there were miracles, unexplained healings," explains Dr. Crandall.
But when a man named Jeff Markin walked into the Palm Beach Gardens Hospital Emergency Room, and promptly collapsed on the floor due to a massive heart attack, the most astounding miracle was about to be witnessed.
According to the WSVN 7-News report, Markin could not be revived even after many efforts by hospital staff. By the time his heart had been stopped for nearly an hour, the call went out for Dr. Crandall.
"As I entered the ER it was like a war zone," recounted Crandall. "Here was this lifeless body on a stretcher. His face, his arms, his legs were pitch black with death. I said, 'Let's just call the code, let's end it because there's no life left.'"
But just as Dr. Crandall was walking out of the room, he heard from God.
"A voice told me to turn around and pray for that man. I looked down at the body, and I said, 'Lord, what can I pray for this man? He's gone.' All of a sudden these words came out, 'Father, I cry out for this man's soul, if he does not know You, raise him from the dead,'" the doctor said.
Although the hospital staff was already preparing Markin's body for the morgue, Dr. Crandall asked for him to be shocked one more time. When they finally did, Markin's heart began to beat perfectly, and he started breathing on his own.
Jeff Markin wasn't a Believer before the day he was resurrected, but is now attending church.
