JOHN 14 : 12-13



"I tell you this timeless truth (Jesus speaking). The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do - even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you."

I would like to share this article about a Creative Miracle. When I heard about this some years ago I was absolutely amazed.

"I found this story which has never been printed, but remembered by those who were there. Doctor Roy Hicks told this to someone who happened to talk about it and this is what I heard:

Robert Semple and Aimee were newly married and were travelling the USA raising finances before travelling to India as missionaries (in the 1920s). One weekend, the pastor of the church they were in asked Aimee to do the morning service. She agreed. The church was about 50 in number. She prayed about what she was to minister on that Sunday and the Holy Spirit said to her, 'I want to do a creative miracle today'. Aimee, new to ministry and only 18yrs old, did not have years of experience, and notes for sermons. So she had to rely heavily on the Holy Spirit.

That morning she said to the congregation, 'I believe God wants to do a creative miracle here today... if there is anyone here wanting a creative miracle.' No one came forward. She had the church continue to worship. She paused the worship a couple of times saying, 'I am not doing anymore, because our Master wants to do something special today.' They contiued to worship. It was about an hour into the service when a man from the back of the church came forward carrying a blanket.

He approached Aimee, who was now sitting on the steps of the pulpit area, and placed the blanket on her lap. He said, 'I don't know you if meant this kind of miracle?' and stepped back. Aimee unfolded the blanket to reveal a very deformed baby. The head was totally out of shape with no eyes or sockets. There were 'flippers' for arms and legs. Aimee gently placed the blanket on the platorm saying, 'Jesus you are such a wonderful Healer'. And they continued to worship for thirty minutes.

During the worship she saw transparent hands come and gently mould the mis-shapen head into perfection. Then two whirlpools come over the eye sockets and created two perfect eyes. The arms then slowly come from the shoulders and legs from the pelvis and all the time the transparent hands moved artistically almost dramatically in each area. Finally she handed the new child back to the parent."

What a wonderful God and Father we serve, all glory and honour and praise to our Lord Jesus. He is still working miracles through His people today as well.
