Raised From The Dead?Posted: January 22, 2011
Those of you who follow world news will know there has been some serious floods in Brazil this month.
This morning I received news about something extra-ordinary that has happened in the region.
Apparently, some people have come back from the dead. I’m not joking.
Here is the front page of a local newspaper:
The text translated says the following:
16 Dead Bodies Confirmed Resurrected from the Dead
Sunday, January 16, 2011
CALEME, TERESOPOLIS, Brazil – People of the barrio of Caleme have witnessed Saturday 5 dead bodies raised from the dead in the street. Another 10 bodies from the morgue have been raised to life. One woman who drowned and was dead was also raised back to life. The people in Caleme reported that 5 American men went near the 5 bodies and yelled, “Rise and live in the name of Jesus.” The dead bodies started to shake and stood up and walked and are alive. At the nearby morgue, there were 10 dead bodies in the hallway. People said that 5 foreign women went near the bodies and said, “Rise and live in the name of Jesus.” The dead bodies shook and stood up shaking and walking and were alive. People were screaming, yelling. Riot at the barrio of Caleme. These 5 dead bodies in the street of Caleme have been dead since Wednesday January 12. The 10 dead bodies in the morgue have been left in the hallway since Wednesday. People have talked to the dead risen. They were still weak but were able to talk and they said, “I was in a dark place many people crying, shouting. Was I asleep? Now I am alive!” “I know I was dead. I was in a dark, ugly place. I do not know what happened, but I am back to life. God is alive.” The families of these dead are celebrating and happy. There has been hope in Caleme since Saturday.
The top picture the newspaper has used (of dead bodies under blankets) can also be viewed here on AOL news. You will have to scroll down, it’s in the right column and is time-stamped as 12th January. The newspaper says they were raised on the 15th January and has a picture of the same blankets with no bodies! As you’ve just read- they even have quotes from the people who were apparently dead and are now living.
To the skeptics: This isn’t the first time I’ve heard about people being raised from the dead when people prayed to Jesus and it probably won’t be the last. I am in no position to state that this 100% definitely happened, but I find it interesting that given the above evidence it certainly seems possible.
I doubt that every report I’ve ever heard of this kind of thing is true, but I believe many of them are. I’ve never seen someone raised from the dead, but I have seen people before my eyes healed of everything from a bad back, to arthritis, to cancer. That’s not to mention that fact my own mother was told by doctors at a top London hospital she would NEVER be able to have children and consider adoption. What can I say? Prayer works!
Finally, if anyone hears of further developments regarding this story please let me know. It’s a shame these stories never get picked up by the major news channels. Some say that’s because they are obviously false, others that mainstream news tends to be secular and not interested in promoting religious miracles.
So, over to you. What do you think?
