16 Dead Bodies Confirmed Resurrected from the Dead

We say we serve a risen Savior.  We say He's in the world today.  Yet, periodically when He shows up we are skeptical.  We wonder how an event was rigged or maybe the participants were confused or motivated to share stories to build a God they wished was real.  It is all very vexing…

There was a time in my Christian life when I would quickly discount the modern day miracles of our times.  It was easier to say the events shared were someone's over active imagination and that miraculous gifts were given to apostles of times past.  I think there is some truth in that attitude, but not the whole truth.

I am inclined to believe miraculous events occurred in times past, because the hearts of the people were fertile for miracles.  The hearts were prime for seeing God at work in very real and tangible ways.  I think in America and much of the world, our hearts are not primed for the active participation of God.  But, every once in a while someone comes along with a heart after God and He loves it.  He chooses to actively participate in their life and those near Him.

Below is an accounting of a God Spot brilliant displayed among of people in need.  You will need to choose whether you believe in a God that empowers others to raise people from the dead.  It is your choice.  What will you do with it?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hi Archie;

    I met a fellow one time who died on the operating table.

    “Oh, your one of those who saw the light at the end of the tunnel eh?”

    He looked at me and turned serious. “I did die. Let me tell you it was a fantastic experience, I felt peace. I did not want to come back.”

    I believed him.

    “Did it change your life?” I asked.

    “Yes,” he answered, but did not go into detail.

    A friend of mine had a brother who died and they brought back, again on an operating table. He saw the other side. The experience was so horrendous he was terrified of death afterwards.

    In the first case, the fellow enjoyed being dead and did not want to return, so his coming back was a step backwards.

    In the second case, we can argue that he may change his ways and go to a better death the next time, but who is to know? I would be terrified too.

    Sometimes it is better to let the “dead bury the dead.”

  2. This article is a fraud. I am a Christian Brazilian. The article that appears in the website as being from the local newspaper is actually the article from the website http://healingherald.org/2011/01/16-flood-victims-raised-from-the-dead-in-brazil/ that has beem poorly translated into Portughese by google translator. I think people should check the information before posting on the internet. As soon I heard about it, I searched on Google and I found a brazilian blog accusing christians about the fraud. It shows the real article and the alterede version that is showed at healingherald.com. Again, the article is a fraud. It is a poor translation from english into portughese.
    I believe in Miracles ! I believe in the ressurection from the death ! I believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God, born from a virgin, ressurected from the dead and he is the only way for salvation of Man !
    But we need to be careful not to believe in any foolish thing that appears on the internet. WE believe in ANYTHING that appears on the Internet as being true, without further investigation. This even made many Christians look like fools. We are the salt and light of the world. Let’s live like that.

  3. Try this: Select the text from the website, put into google translator and ask to translate into portughese. You will get the text that appears on the fake news WORD BY WORD. Now for those who speak a different language as you’ve used google translator knows that it never is perfect translation. This is a broken portughese. A local Newspaper would never publish an article with poor translation. Besides, if you compare the acclaimed article with the actual newspaper, you’ll notice that the format is different.

  4. the newspaper article is false. “O Diario” in teresopolis didn’t publish it. Its been taken offline on the Healing Herald site. I believe in the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow, and He can still raise people from the dead. And lying is still wrong. I also live in Brazil and we’re trying to get to the bottom of this.

  5. i am interested in many things related… first … what constitutes fraud? Is an illiterate translator fraudulent? Probably not. Are the people that can’t be found who went from dead to live fraudulent? Probably not. Jesus avoided crowds often. Was He also accused of being fraudulent. Probably…

    I agree the whole story sounds like artificially created hype, but just because something seems one way or the other does not make it so.

    As for calling someone a fraud… seems a bit fraudulent to begin with…

    I enjoy a good story. God can protect His own interest and this was a good story and possibly is going to get even better…

    If I was one of the dead to live guys, i think i would hide, also. Likely, those believers in the crowd would stone me… just to guarantee i was not being fraudulent. i am chuckling.. this is a great story…

  6. I have stopped forwarding events like this. Why? Because of this. Supposedly the stories I would pass along were confirmed by snopes.com or fact or fiction.com or someone else. Then, inevitably, here would come the “It’s not true” crowd. Instead of defending and/or apologizing for what I passed on, I stopped. The cynics and naysayers will always be among us. Even those who proclaim Christianity. Maybe it happened, maybe it didn’t. It doesn’t matter to me. Whether this particular event is true or not doesn’t sway me one way or the other. I’m a Christian. I know this kind of thing happens in today’s world. Why? Because Jesus is the same today as He ever was. He does what a Savior does. You may choose to believe or disbelieve based on a translation breakdown, but trust me, translation has nothing to do facts. It reminds me of the once-blind man who was made to stand before the Pharisees…, “You tell me! All I know is that once I was blind, but now I see!”

    I’m washing my hands of this because there is no ending that will satisfy all men. Blessings everyone.

  7. Hi Archie and Richard;

    I’m not accusing Archie of fraud. He just passed on a story he saw on a blog site which he had no reason to question.

    However, if it is not true, there is no way we can wish it to be true.

    Personally, I think things like this chase people away who you would like to attract, for if this is retracted because it is bogus, what about what you are trying to teach?

    Using a fictional story to emphasize a point is ok, allowing people to think it may be real when not, throws credibility into question.

    In this information age with science taking a leap into the fore, people look at faith with a critical eye as it is, not unjustifiably so.

  8. About thirty or forty years ago the Pope traveled to Canada and our province which has only a million people living at that time made arrangement for a crowd of 500,000 and road signs etc were put up to accommodate the inflow of people.

    An electrician took a break and was sitting in one of the empty wheelchairs when the Pope came on stage and the electrician quickly moved as he realized he shouldn’t be there.

    The news that night made a big thing about faith healing and a man standing up from a wheel chair, which was retracted the next day when the truth came out.

    I am sure people who were there that day still believe the pope healed a paralyzed person 🙂

  9. This does not happen. HOAX ! God is supposed to be in your heart, and this allows you to live right.
    No miracle here, just some who want attention.

  10. Hi Archie;

    I don’t know what the fascination is about raising the dead. After all, if Heaven is such a great place, why would we want to bring our friends or family back here? Unless they are in Hell, where they probably deserve to be and we feel sorry for them.

    But that won’t make it easier for them when they die again. 🙂

    Have you ever thought about that?

  11. FALSE



    False Miracles and Lies… Deceived and Ignorant People

    1/24/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Lord’s Words Spoken to Timothy, During an Online Fellowship – For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear – Regarding reports of people being raised from the dead and coming back from death

    [Tabatha] The “raised” said that 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”… Is this demons performing miracles? If it was The Lord, would they remember a dark, ugly place? The sleeping have no recollection or thoughts!

    [The Lord answered] NO MAN shall raise the dead, save I live in that man! And NO account, of one raising the dead in My name, is true, save it was given them by Me to do so. Or have you never read in the Scriptures, “It was I who had done it!”?

    I tell you the truth, this time is very near,
    Yet it has not come, says The Lord…

    For I have indeed raised the dead through My servants,
    In various times past, and I shall do so again…

    Yet the time is not yet.

    In the Day, My witnesses shall go out ahead of Me, and prepare My way before Me, and by signs such as this shall My coming glory be revealed. Yet no man or woman, in all the earth, shall do these things, save those I send. For many will call on the power of My name, yet I will not move in them, nor will I act… Save in those I send, only.

    Therefore, believe no report
    Of one returning from death, speaking false tales…

    For it is written, “The dead know nothing at all,
    For all their thoughts have perished with them”…

    And believe no report, of one being raised from the dead…


    I tell you the truth, the day is coming, and is nearly upon you, when My witnesses shall surely do these things. Therefore, again I say, believe no report among men or the churches, save those only which are given on account of My witnesses, through whom I shall do these things… For through them, I shall indeed perform many wonderful signs and miracles, in the sight of many witnesses, to the glory of My name!…


    For satan shall deceive many, and perform many mighty signs and wonders by his servants, to deceive, if it were possible, even the elect… Even to the raising of the dead by his acolytes (So it will seem, to those who believe the lie)…
    YET ALL IS A LIE!… A clever and well-planned deception… I TELL YOU, NO MIRACLE IS FOUND!… Only illusion and misdirection, accompanied by much propaganda and dark sentences… Great delusion, to the darkness of many faces.


    And only One who has the power to revive, and the power to kill,
    The power to heal, and the power to destroy utterly…





  12. I love this story… such passion! But Trent… tell me how you really feel about it…

    and Richard…. why do you post anything online? I suspect to reach the people with great news they will not otherwise hear…

    Ichabod…. the voice of reality in the physical world… i love you, man! I would have loved to post the story of a man getting out of a wheel chair on stage with the pope! Not out of fraud, but out of an incredible God given sense of humor. I bet God even laughed at that but scratched His wondering who the guy in the robe was…. lol

  13. I was thinking about jumping from a building to get more publicity for my blog, but i think this story much more safe.

    My God can protect His own interests….

  14. Hi Archie;

    If you jump from a very tall building and take a parachute with you, you’ll get exposure and won’t die in the process.

    The parachute is a little insurance in case God or the Angels are on vacation. 🙂

  15. It may not be happening in Brazil but there is no way you can deny it is happening in Mozambique with Heidi and Roland Bakers ministries called Iris ministries . They have many many witnesses to raising the dead over 300 times or more . Another is David Hogan Ministries in South American jungles over 30 years they have raised aroung 400 or more from the dead.
    ‘You are invited to go to both these ministries as a guest and view this happening.
    It is more common than an atheist or agnostic would ever admit.

    People in Brazil saw this and it cannot be ignored no matter what.
    Hard hearts and minds will never admit that God still lives and does miracles .After all you are reading this with eyes He created ,

  16. This is a wonderful testimony for those wonderful people in those countries.

    It is also a sad commentary on the faith in America, where we have the most religious freedom to practice our faith, yet we do not hear of this sort of thing very often, or at all.

    We should re-think our level of faith, and find what these people have.

  17. Jesus christ of nazareth is alive.If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

  18. My names Sierra, I’m in desperate need of help if anyone sees this & can help me or give me advice i would be truly thankful. December 10, 2012 i lost my best friend, he had been taking care of me for the past couple months, He & I were very very close. His funeral was 2 days later. I’m a big christian and i should’ve seeked help from God the day he died. Maybe then i could’ve brought him back to life, I know it sounds crazy. I serve God & maybe just maybe it would’ve worked. I wanna try it though…i wanna go to his grave & yell “Rise and live in the name of Jesus!” Am i crazy for wanting my best friend back? Am i crazy for not letting go? I can’t let go, I’ve never felt so alive as i did when we were together. I can’t bare the thought of having to go my whole life without him….Somebody give me some guidance on what to do. I’m lost & broken. I haven’t seen my friend for a month now, because he visited me a couple days after his death & i knew it was him. I haven’t seen him since, I want him back. Should i let go? Or hold onto him with all i have? Someone help….

  19. Sierra,

    I believe that Jesus can raise the dead – we see that He raised Lazarus, the widow’s son and the twelve year old girl. Peter raised Dorcas and Paul raised the young man that fell from the window while he was preaching all night long!

    However, the Bible also makes it clear that all die – unless we are still alive when Jesus comes back!

    I know that Jesus can raise the dead and I have spoken first hand to people who have seen that happen through them. However, I also spoke to the residents in the suburb of Caleme in the city of Teresópolis – Brazil, and know, without a shadow of doubt – that this story didn’t happen. I published a video showing this on YouTube and shortly after the person who had invented this story went underground, and their friend who had published the tale initially realized the truth and retracted it. Sadly, this retraction hasn’t been published on all the sites where the false testimony has been published.

    As far as your friend goes, it does hurt to lose someone that we love. But you shouldn’t blame yourself for not trying to bring him back – these occurrences, even in the Bible, have always been the exception and not the rule. I would you recommend that ask the Lord to help as you work through this moment of loss and grief. Remember that He is the one that is always with us, that truly understands us and loves us infinitely and forever.

    Let me close with the words of the King David, when he lost his son, as he acknowledged, that although his son would not come back to him here in this life, that one day they would be united again in eternity:

    But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me. – 2 Sm 12:23

  20. Thank God for the miracle .and am sure he will do it in the life of mother ,in Jesus name.Amen

  21. Even if It was false doesn’t it provoke your faith to believe. Matt. 10:7-8 Jesus told His disciples to go preach saying the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers raise the dead. Freely you have received, freely give. A disciple is one who reproduces himself in another to believe, live , and do just like their teacher. So when Jesus told the disciples to do this He was telling us as believers in Jesus to do the same thing. Don’t you want to raise the dead and heal the sick. Or will you stand by like the Pharisees looking for everything wrong with what’s really right. Even if this is false who cares if it provokes someone to walk like Jesus! Don’t think I’m spouting off my opinion and not believing what I’m saying. Jesus lives inside of us so when we touch He touches, when we pray He is praying through us, because we are one with the father. I have not raised the dead but I have seen others do it. If Jesus told us we are suppose to and He gave us the power to do it then why is so controntroversal? It’s because any time doubt is in a room and faith walks in. Doubt has to do everything it can to get faith out of the room so it can feel good about itself. I prayed for a friend with cancer last year and He died. That’s not going to work for me. Why not go all the way with this thing if we are going to be a christian. I’m not bashing anyone. We just don’t know how to be who Jesus told us to be. I’m just now learning the narrow way. It’s the way of grace and truth. Not just grace and not just truth. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and lead you into all truth. Be blessed brothers and sisters!
