One of the most amazing books I’ve read is called Voice in the Night by Surprise Sithole. It’s an autobiography where Surprise tells about how the external, audible voice of God saved his life as a young man and called him to go and preach the Gospel in his homeland Mozambique as well as other nations nearby. He healed the sick, raised the dead, fed the poor and planted churches, just as Jesus had told us to do. Later on he became a leader in Iris Ministries.
In the video above Surprise shares a few of the stories that can be found in his book. Not only has he raised eight people from the dead, he has also seen a lot of food miracles. Like many other saints, he combines signs and wonders with poverty reduction. I think he is a wonderful example of a humble and joyful leader with really strong faith and burning compassion. We need to listen more to these guys also in the Western church!
[…] Surprise Sithole från Mozambique säger sig ha samma erfarenhet, enligt videon ovan. Den västerländska naturalismen tvingas utan belägg avfärda dessa människor som oupplysta vildar, då man i David Humes anda hävdar att mirakler per se inte kan ske. Problemet var bara att Hume byggde denna tes på sin egen begränsade erfarenhet. Att kyrkan ibland lyssnar mer på honom än på Surprise Sithole är ganska obegripligt. För om man vill följa vad Jesus säger och visar så är budskapet i Joh 11 väldigt tydligt: begränsa inte Guds allmakt. Dela detta:FacebookTwitterE-postSkriv utGillaGillaBe the first to like this. […]
