‘Raising the Dead: A Doctor Encounters the Supernatural’

ROME, ITALY (ANS) — The audience of more than 270 doctors from some 40 countries around the world sat in stunned silence today (Friday, May 21, 2010) in the eternal city of Rome, as a renowned heart doctor produced evidence of how, after he had prayed for a patient who had died and was being prepared for the morgue and then he was brought back to life after that prayer.

Dr. Chauncey W. Crandall IV, who serves at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Palm Beach, Florida, told this story during his dramatic presentation on the first day of a two-day conference at the 7th Annual World Christian Doctors Network “Spirituality and Medicine” Conference held at the Sheraton Roma Hotel and Conference Center in Rome.

Crandall, a born-again physician, produced dramatic evidence that was shown on big screens at the front of the hall where the medical professionals were meeting.

I joined the gathering and can report that you could literally feel the electric atmosphere as it swept through the hall, as Dr. Crandall told of the day — October 20, 2006 — when a middle-aged auto mechanic, Jeff Markin, walked into the Emergency Room at the Palm Beach Gardens Hospital and collapsed from a massive heart attack.

Forty minutes later he was declared dead. After filling out his final report, the supervising cardiologist, Dr. Chauncey Crandall, started out of the room.

In a later interview Dr. Crandall told me, “Before I crossed its threshold, however, I heard the audible voice of God telling me to turn around and pray for the dead patient.”

The doctor told the audience that he had learned to “follow that impulse” even if he was embarrassed.

“Father God,” he said, under his breath, “I cry out for this man’s soul. If he does not know you as his Lord and Savior, please raise him from the dead now, in Jesus’ name.”

With that and Dr. Crandall’s instruction to give the man what seemed one more useless shock from the defibrillator, Jeff Markin incredibly came back to life — and remains alive and well today.

What shall I say? You cold have told me this a year ago and I would have laughed in your face.We are born and raised in a a world that does not accept miracles as they go against anything that is natural and cannot be explained in that context. Miracles, raising people from the dead, that was mythology of the ancient times: or is it?  Yet, after seeing incredible things at two healing seminars myself, finding my own hearing substantially recovered just like that, and seeing the other amazing stuff happening at Harmony Church, especially amongst the youth this can no longer come as a surprise.It was bound to happen somewhere.

I remember well how Chad Dedmon brought healing and deliverance back to matters of expectation and perseverance and how thus it is all brought back to a question of faith.I guess these two bible verses summarize it exactly:

12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. (John 14:12,13)


20For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. (1 Corinthians 4:20)

Praise the Lord.
