When you talk to many atheists and skeptics they often ask for real examples of miracles happening today. Then when you give them publicly documented examples of people being raised from the dead in the name of Jesus, they will often invent reasons to cast doubt on each example and then they will often pretend that you have not shown them any real evidence after all.
But do people actually get raised from the dead in the name of Jesus today?
Are some of these miracles publicly documented?
One of the most extraordinary examples of this phenomenon in recent years is a case from Florida.
Dr. Chauncey W. Crandall IV is a famous heart doctor who has not been shy about telling of an extraordinary situation where the Lord God directed him to pray for a 53 year old car mechanic who had died from a heart attack.
In his stirring testimony about this event, Dr. Crandall makes it exceedingly clear that this mechanic was completely and totally dead.
In fact, Dr. Crandall says that his face and feet and arms "were completely black with death".
Everyone had completely given up on resuscitating this man, but Dr. Crandall says that God directed him to pray for this man.
So Dr. Crandall began praying fervently for the mechanic. Dr. Crandall reports that this is what he prayed:
"Father, God, I cry out for the soul of this man if he does not know You as his Lord and Savior, please raise him from the dead right now in Jesus name."
A couple minutes later a heartbeat started showing up. The man had come back to life after being prayed for in the name of Jesus.
While the man was out of his body, he reports having a "hell-like" experience, and when he came back to life Dr. Crandall led him through a prayer to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
