In November 2006, Bruce Van Natta was a husband, a father of four children and a diesel truck mechanic. While under a huge truck doing repairs, the jack slipped and the truck fell on Bruce Van Natta. The truck's axle crushed Van Natta's abdomen down to under 2 inches in thickness. Paramedics came and flew the heavily bleeding father of 4 to Wisconsin University Hospital.(Before the paramedics arrived 2 eight feet tall angels came-but for more on this you will have to read Bruce Van Natta's bestselling book: "Saved By Angels".) Bruce Van Natta's wife, Lori, came to the hospital with only a Bible.
.The surgeons couldn't understand how Bruce Van Natta's heart was still beating after the giant truck had almost cut him into two pieces and severed 5 major arteries. The surgeons stopped the incredible bleeding and then removed a large part of his small intestine.
(Author and journalist Max Davis reviews much of the excellent medical documents concerning Bruce Van Natta in his book:The Insanity of Disbelief.)
Max Davis writes that Van Natta's 5 page Trauma Operative Note, signed by attending surgeon Michael Schurr,M.D.(Dr.Schurr has been on call for the US President) says that over 18 feet of his small intestine were removed and sent to pathology. By his 4th operation, only 3.1 feet(95cm) of small intestines remained in Bruce Van Natta. Van Natta had weighed 180 pounds before the accident; but his weight would drop to 125 pounds in the following months. He was slowly dying because he did not have enough small intestine to properly absorb food. His family and church were still praying.
In February 2007, a Christian friend of Van Natta's named Bruce Carlson, from Walden, NY, felt God tell him to go to Wisconsin and pray for Van Natta. Carlson and a mutual friend named Brian, went to his hospital room. There Carlson laid hands on Bruce Van Natta and commanded his small intestines to grow in the name of Jesus Christ(John 14:13,14.) Suddenly Van Natta felt electricity come out of his hands and go into his own forehead and down to his stomach area. Van Natta felt his intestines wiggle and move around. He instantly told Carlson and Brian that he felt as though a snake had uncoiled in his stomach.
Bruce Van Natta immediately started gaining weight! His doctors were confused. They ordered an upper G.I. Track X-ray exam. The doctors couldn't believe what they were seeing. Senior radiologist Andrew Taylor confirmed in writing that Bruce Van Natta now had 9.84 feet(300 cm) of small intestines. Before and after X-Rays, CT scans and Doppler scans proved that Van Natta's small intestines had tripled in length due to the prayers for him in Jesus's name. This is a fact.
Furthermore, Dr. Michael Schurr operated on Van Natta again after the upper G.I. Track X-Rays showed that his small intestines had tripled in length. Dr. Schurr and the operative assistants saw the Christ-regrown small intestines with their own eyes and testified about it on a TV documentary. This is a fact.
The History Channel's atheistic "Miracles Decoded" series aimed to disprove miracles. Yet when they interviewed Dr.Michael Schurr and saw the clear evidence of the before and after medical imaging of Van Natta's intestines, even they had to admit on TV that there was no natural explanation for Bruce Van Natta's small intestine's huge regrowth.
Bruce Van Natta is a healthy 160 pounds today and directs Sweet Bread Ministries.
Max Davis tells us that this miracle story has extremely reliable sources. Davis says that to continue to disbelieve in miracles or in Jesus Christ, who is the God of miracles, is to simply refuse to acknowledge the facts.
I personally think this miracle, with absolutely airtight medical documentation and a top US surgeon and assistants as witnesses, is scientific proof that Jesus is God.
