Man dead for 45 minutes told the representatives present at the United Nations General Assembly about the power of God. He boldly declared, “God has totally raised me from the dead.”
Man Dead For 45 Minutes
The United Nations gave Lee Stoneking the privilege of speaking to the assembly. The minister grabbed the opportunity to tell the world about his miracle-working God.
In an airport in Sydney, Australia, Lee collapsed to the ground while to a massive heart attack. “I was clinically dead,” he recalled. “45 minutes, they administered CPR, and they gave me ten electric shock treatments to my heart.”
Lee emphasized that the United States would only give three shock treatments before stopping. And while in Australia, they only gave four. But for Lee, they somehow gave him ten shock treatments and still to no avail.
“The blood had coagulated already in my hands and my arms and my feet and legs. There was absolutely no hope for me at all.”
So, the medical personnel took Lee’s body and laid it on a stretcher to take it to the ambulance. They were already working on his papers and recorded, “DOA or dead on arrival.”
But something happened to Lee’s body on his way to the hospital.
“Jesus stepped on board that ambulance. My heart began to beat, my breath came back. It startled the driver and the paramedic! They had never seen anything like it,” Lee said.
Moreover, Lee’s spirit came back to his body and he was completely healed.
When he went for a major check-up the year after, the doctors were astonished by his results. “Your results are absolutely excellent,” the doctors told him.
The blockage that caused the heart disease had been removed from every part of Lee’s body. “That is impossible,” the doctor continued. “Only God could do such a thing.”
The point of Lee’s testimony was to tell the assembly that the power of Jesus at work in his life is needed by the world.
He referred to Acts 2:38 saying, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
“The answer, your excellencies, to the violence in our day and to the human atrocities in our day is Jesus. He is the Prince of Peace,” Lee added.
