Girl Who ‘Woke Up’ at her own Funeral in Philippines Is Reportedly Dead
Metro UK ^ | Monday 14 Jul 2014

Posted on 07/15/2014 5:31:45 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A toddler who ‘woke up’ at her own funeral is reportedly dead.

Startled mourners thought they had caught a miracle on camera when the toddler they were about to bury ‘woke up’.

The three-year-old from Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur in the Philippines, was pronounced dead at 9am on Friday and was set for burial at 1pm on Saturday.

But during the funeral her family, friends and loved ones got the surprise of their lives when the little girl came back to life.

People started recording the unbelievable scenes after a priest was preparing to administer the last sacrament and someone noticed the toddler move before she suddenly opened her eyes.

But since the video has become an internet sensation it has been reported that the toddler has been confirmed as dead.

In other news, Generalissimo Fransisco Franco is still dead.

Seriously though, what a horrid roller coaster ride for the parents.

Maybe instead of all just recording at least one of them should have done some resuscitating.

What an awful, heart-ripping few days that must’ve been. Some months ago a little boy awoke under similar circumstances, asked for water and died shortly afterward. Very sad for these families who think they’ve witnessed a miracle, only to have it all taken away again.

Is it common for people to wake up before they die? Is it God’s way of giving us a chance to say goodbye?

I’m speaking from personal experience here. I was in a prayer meeting with a young woman who was born blind. She was prayed for and several minutes later she started actually being able to see! She looked right in my face!

The people who were there were told that she was receiving her sight. They should have been praising the Lord! But they only gave an “Amen” and kept on with their singing. They were absorbed in themselves.

A few minutes later her sight started going away again. I took her home that night, still blind.

My friend did not have a completed healing because the people there did not praise the Lord when it was obvious that He was working. So it is possible that you can actually have a miracle but lose it if you do not praise the Lord with your whole heart when you see Him move.

That seems like a pretty capricious God you serve. My God works His will despite the frailty of his people. It’s called grace and mercy —undeserved and impossible from a human standpoint. Were the 9 lepers struck down again after only the one returned?

If God requires goodness without His providence, what need of a Savior? All our righteousness is as filthy rags.

Well if she wasn’t embalmed maybe it was just bodily movement? I’ve heard of people in a morgue moving but it was only muscle spasms. So not sure. In any event it had to be traumatic on the parents.

Could have been rigor mortis. My HS biology teacher saw a corpse sit up. She was “surprised,” to put it mildly.

“Why do we live in a weird world?”

Because our egos crave power which creates an illusion that denies the reality of the truth our souls inhabit.

Assuming the child did wake up alive for that short period, I’d be thankful I got to spend just one day longer with my child.

I saw a prank video, where a guy hid himself underneath a table that had a corpse that was about to be examined by a medical examiner. The guy ran an electrical current through the corpse, causing it to raise its right arm suddenly.

Yeah, the ME ran out of the room.

So He punished the girl with continued blindness because the folks around her didn't pray hard enough?

“That seems like a pretty capricious...”

No, the Lord gave us responsibility. He tells us to pray and to worship in His Word. He wasn’t joking. If we don’t pray, if we don’t worship, then things that are supposed to happen won’t.

It isn’t God’s fault. It is our fault when churches get lazy.

“So He punished the girl with continued blindness because the folks around her didn’t pray hard enough? “

Don’t forget, there were times that even Jesus was hindered from doing miracles. Mark 6:5-6 says “And He could do no miracle there except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He wondered at their unbelief.”

It wasn’t God’s fault. He wasn’t punishing her. He just didn’t have enough prayer to break through.

Jesus told us to pray, “Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” He wasn’t just saying stuff. If we don’t pray, then yes, things don’t happen. The Father NEEDS our prayers to have a free hand to work.

How much faith, worship, or praise is enough? You honestly believe that a little child is blind because some bystanders weren’t good enough?

I ask again, who needs a Savior if our own actions save or heal us? Yes we are called to faith, but that very faith is the Gift of God. If such faith does not suffice, then we are all destined for Hell.

First, I said it was a young woman, not a girl. I was dating her at the time. I was kneeling right next to her and she looked right into my face. She was staring at her hands, having never seen her own hands before.

“I ask again, who needs a Savior if our own actions save or heal us?”

We’re not talking about salvation. Salvation is an individual thing and you don’t need the response of anyone to get saved!

We’re talking about healing. Healing is VERY much a group thing. It matters a great deal if the people present believe in the power of the Lord to heal, or not.

Southern Baptist missionaries in Africa see healings all the time. They are common over there! African believers of all denominations believe in the power of God to heal. Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Episcopalian, they all have seen them.

But in the United States, Baptist churches do not believe in healings. Most will not even pray for healing, they pray for the doctors. So there are few if any healings in Baptist churches. Because of their *unbelief*.

Jesus was only hindered because the people refused to come forward and present themselves because they didn't want to believe in Him. He performed miracles on fish and food among people who had no idea what He was doing. He performed miracles on people who had no idea what He was doing either.

But I guess you need an excuse why your shamanism doesn't work.

Priests do not administer last rights to someone who was confirmed dead the day before nor do they do so to a child who was too young to have reached the age of reason.

Mark 6:5-6 says “And He could do no miracle there except...”

The Word couldn’t be any clearer.

Belief in His power to heal isn’t “shamanism.”

Hey, I was there. She was blind since birth. I looked into her eyes. She looked into mine. She could see. Then she couldn’t.

I suggest that whatever denomination has been putting this stuff in your head, that you leave it. Find a church that thinks that we have a God who loves people and wants to heal.

Lurker,

The Lord has chosen to give us authority in prayer. If we don’t use it, it’s our fault. It isn’t His. He didn’t make us to be puppets.

In his mis-spent youth, a friend of mine was an orderly at a certain Cambridge hospital. They had a hazing procedure they deployed against new hires. The new orderly would be taken on a tour of all the hospital's facilities, ending at the morgue. A corpse under a sheet would be wheeled out of the fridge. Initially dead to the world, it would suddenly sit bolt-upright, turn its gaze upon the new hire, and jump up and chase him!

There do seem to be a lot of cases of a last surge of energy and lucidity just prior to the final sleep.

So the fish Jesus called into the nets believed? The water He turned into wine believed? The fig tree He cursed believed?

Many of the people Jesus healed had no idea who He was. The miracles Jesus did were meant to confirm Him and His message. If the people already believed, there would have been no need for the miracles in the first place. By necessity they happened to many unbelieving people. The difference is they did not resist Him.

When Jesus came to His hometown they refused to come forward to be healed because they did not want to believe in Him. They knew Him as the carpenter's son and wanted Him to be only that.

As far as your story of the blind woman, it pretty much ruins your credibility as far as I am concerned.

He healed them BECAUSE HE LOVED THEM. #1 reason.

I was in love with her. And I don’t care what you think.

Or a chance to tell them to get back to work.

So He does not love all those He does not heal, including your friend?

Now, I am done with you.

Open your eyes to reality. Stop imagining things. The greatest blindness is not physical, it is spiritual. The bible can heal you of that, but only if you are a lot more discerning concerning the truth.
