“IT TOOK A Miracle”

  I love that song, “It took a Miracle.”  But, we need to have a better understanding concerning miracles.

  2 plane crashes within a month of each other.  150 people saved – 50 people killed.  See my article on this in my blog.  I asked David Beamer, father of Todd, who was killed on Flight 93 to comment on my article.

  This was his reply:                                   — February 9, 2009
“Plane crashes…survival and miracles…death and God’s will…events close to the heart.  A sufficient number of God’s miracles are recorded in His word for us to believe or not.  The laws of earth, formulated by God in His creation, include gravity with assured consequences.  Earth is a fallen place with the forces of evil operative.  The free-will of man to choose Jesus Christ or evil ways with the associated consequences is reality. 
Evil men, the forces of gravity, Todd Beamer and God were all present on Flight 93.  Flight 93 crashed, gravity was operative, the plane and all bodies on-board destroyed…why no miracle?  God’s law of gravity and the promise of eternal life in paradise with God, to all who accept Jesus as savior, were both served.  God’s promise of consequences leading to hell was also fulfilled that day…some choices have eternal consequences.  
God was with Todd on 911 and Todd was with God that morning and now forever more in the glory of heaven…not really a miracle, but a promise most wonderfully fulfilled.
Warmest regards,  David Beamer, father of Todd”

  DAVID BEAMER WILL BE THE GUEST SPEAKER AT LAKEWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH, GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA, JULY 1ST IN BOTH THE 9:30 AND 11 A.M. SERVICES FOR OUR PATRIOTIC CELEBRATION.  You will be blessed to share in this great worship time.

  I  love David Beamer and appreciated his remarks. May I just add my thought to all of this.
I believe in miracles, BIBLICAL MIRACLES.  Jesus was able to perform miracles in order to substantiate His claim to divinity.  The Apostles were able to perform miracles in order to substantiate their claim of proclaiming the divine Word of God.   Read John 20:30-31:  “Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”  NIV

You want miracles? Go to the BIBLE.  God put them there, so we could read and believe.

  1. This was a great devotional, I do wish we could hear David Beamer. You should have a very full house. God Bless

  2. What a wonderful explanation for some of the “why’s” of life. It is so hard for us to get our minds around it but in the end, we just have to trust that God knows what He is doing. Just yesterday we lost a good friend to a tragic accident. He was cutting down a tree, the tree fell against his chest and a branch pierced his carotid artery and he bled to death, in the arms of his only son. We can’t help asking why but I, especially, know that sometimes we just can’t comprehend God’s reasons in our finite minds. We just have to trust His heart.

    I am looking so forward to hearing David Beamer next week. I just love our church and everything about it. We have wonderful sermons, wonderful small groups, great brothers and sisters in Christ (you and Joann being part of that). I hope you have a great week.

  3. Max thank you so much for these words of wisdom and sharing David’ Beamer’s answer to you. God just can’t be blamed for all the bad things that happen. It’s just this world we live in and the choices we make. I feel we use the word:mircle” to loosely. God has blessed us with so many ways to help us. Through our doctors ,science,knowlege of so many other things that we are able to do with His guidence to help ourselves. It all goes back to making the right choices and staying in His Word and Praying !

  4. There is a Beamer lady on Fox News and I always wonder if she was Todd Beamer’s wife. Bad things happen to good people because they come in contact with evil people. God doesn’t control the evil people and God could have saved Todd Breamer because He had the power. Why God doesn’t save people in incidents like this is His choice. I’m praying that God will save America against the corrupt and evil happeningd in our government.come November. God saved the Israelites when battling with the Philistines and He can save us today. Will you join me in praying that prayer. If we don’t ask then He won’t deliver. I am praying for God to cause the drones to fall from the sky when we have victory.
