Scripture:- John 5:1-9
Topic:- The Greatest Miracle I Ever Witnessed 
Text:- John 5:8
By Evangelist R. W. Schambach
They’re going on a trip. Another lady’s with her. The baby’s in a bassinet. It’s in the back seat of an old Ford. They’re driving down the highway.
I see the Alabama/Tennessee border. That automobile is driving in the parking lot.
Lady you’re here tonight. Bring me that baby! God’s going to give you twenty-six miracles.”
That woman came running again for the second time that night. She put the baby in Brother Allen’s arms. I jumped up to stand beside him, and everybody in the audience, 3,000 strong, was standing.
Brother Allen must have wanted to be sure that the audience was agreeing in faith for the miracle because he said, ‘Everybody, close your eyes.’
But I thought, ‘Not me, mister. I’m going to be scriptural on this one. I’m going to watch and pray. I’ve been waiting for this all week.
“That little boy’s tongue had been hanging out of his mouth all week.
The first thing I saw as Brother Allen prayed was that tongue snapped back in the mouth like a rubber band. For the first time in four years, the little guy’s tongue was in his mouth.
I saw two little whirlpools in his eyes, just a milky color. You couldn’t tell whether he had blue or brown or what color of eyes.
But during the prayer, that whirlpool ceased, and I saw two brand new brown eyes! I knew God had opened his eyes, and if God opened the eyes, I knew He had unstopped the deaf ears.
Then those little arms began to snap like pieces of wood; and for the first time, they stretched out.
The legs cracked like wood popping. All of sudden, I saw God form toes out of those club feet as easily as child forms something with silly-putty.
The crowd was watching by this time going wild! I’ve never seen any people shout and rejoice so much in all my life.
I saw that baby placed on his feet, and he began to run for the first time in his life. He had never seen his mama before, never said a word, but he began running across the platform and I was running right after him to catch him.
He leaped into his mama’s arms, and I heard him say his first word, ‘Mama.”
The following Saturday after his healing, I received a special delivery letter from his mother. She said ‘Brother Schambach, I took the baby to the Hospital Monday morning, and the Doctors won’t give him back.
They kept him all week. They have called in every Doctor from all over the Country who has had anything to do with the case.
They have pronounced my baby cured of twenty-six major diseases.’ Of course, we went on to get the copies of the affidavits from the Doctors certifying that boy’s life was a genuine miracle.
Her letter continued, ‘You remember that last Sunday when I told you all I had was twenty dollars? God knows that was the truth.
But when that man of God said to give something you can’t afford, I leaped into the aisle. The moment I hit that aisle, for the first time in my life I heard the devil talk.
The devil told me, ‘You can’t give that; that’s not yours. Fifteen dollars of that goes to the Doctor. Five dollars is for gas to get home.’
The faster I ran, the faster he talked. But as soon as I turned loose of that money, he stopped talking.
Brother Schambach, all you saw was those twenty-six miracles, but there is one you don’t know anything about.
After you were gone, people were staying there. They wanted to see the baby and see what God had done.
People shook hands with me. When one lady shook my hands, I felt a folded piece of paper between my palms. I opened it up and saw it was a twenty Dollar bill.
As I shook hands with the people who had lined up, every one of them had a folded paper in their hand.
“I went into the ladies room and counted $235!”
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, I refuse to give up on my miracles, manifest now by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
