I'm a Miracle man
I'm a Miracle Man, you may wonder why I call myself a Miracle man.
Our Lord has a reason as to why each of us are here.
Right through my life many things have happened to me where I should have died but some how I'm still here.
Once when I was just a small boy I was trying to crawl across a fallen branch over a river and I fell in,but somehow I managed to get out.
Another time I tried to swim across a fast flowing river I got to the other side alright,but I had to swim back, nearly did not make it, the flow carried me way down the river to where I should have been.
I was driving my car at speed to get to work I came to a corner with traffic lights, I had red but my speed would not let me stop so I went through the intersection as I was in the middle of the corner, there was one car in front of me and another at the back of me, if I had have been going faster or slower I would have crashed.
I have been a church going person all my life, many years back my job was driving and delievering goods to companies, well I had this fear that I may die on the road.
One night when I was asleep I had this vision......
I was lying on a bed and in a room of my own, the room was white, as I lay there I felt my body raise up floating above the bed, I turned to see myself sleeping and as I slept I was taking my last breath, just before my last breath came Jesus appeared in the room, he was full of LIGHT the room shone so bright.
He said to me as clear as if you were talking to some one standing beside you.
What He said was " Raymond you will not die as I have need of you"
Right away I woke up took my Bible and read this........"Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name. When you pass through the waters I will be with you, and when you pass through rivers they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Since you are precious and honoured in my sight, and because I love you.
Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf.
You are my witness and my servant whom I have chosen.
These verses are the ones that I felt on my heart to read. I woke up my wife at that time and told her about what had happened to me and what Jesus spoke to me about, He was so clear, I can still hear His voice even now.
Since then other encounters I have had with Jesus, as now a single person and live on my own, one night I was watching TV, I was at one end of the room sitting TV in front of me, a table light was in front but to the left side but still in front of me, the main light turned off.
Now as I was watching TV the room was partly dark, as I said the table light was in front, well this light came into the room and my shadow came onto the wall in front of me to my right side, it was very clear on the wall, I turned around to see the out line of Jesus face was there,( everytime I write or talk about this tears well up in my eyes) well at that time I was feeling a bit lonely being on my own you see my wife and I had parted) I looked across again to the wall the shadow still there, then the image was there looking at me just above the Tv. Jesus came into my room to let me know that I was not alone as He was there with me all the time, I have never felt lonely again since then.
Another time I was sleeping and I was in a train going at speed during the night, we were in the hills, as we came to a bridge to cross over to the other side the bridge was not there, so I thought that we would crash down into the valley, but as I was watching out the train window I could feel that we were going over the valley and we got to the other side and back onto the rails safely.
Once more Jesus had carried me through rough times He had not let me down, I wonder how many times I let Him down, but He is always there for me.
I have said that I'm a Miracle Man, well after all that has happened to me yes I think so,as many more things I will write about in part 2.
