Leg Lengthening Fake or Real

Is leg lengthening fake or real?  What is the significance of this practice according to scripture?


Notice what the scripture says about the legs of the lame:  "THE LEGS OF THE LAME ARE NOT EQUAL ..." (Proverbs 26:7 KJV)

Remember that Jesus healed the lame ... and Jesus used the healing of the lame as one of His specific signs to declare who He was.

For example, consider the following exchange between Jesus Christ and John the Baptist.
"Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and THE LAME WALK, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me."  (Matthew 11:2-6 KJV)
Not everyone in the body of Christ necessarily has the gift of healing or creative miracles (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) ... but some do ... and if some do ... then that is a demonstration of the truth of the reality of Jesus Christ for today ... just as in time past.
"If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”
~Jesus of Nazareth (John 10:37-39 NKJV)
Now, it hardly ever fails, when presenting this particular type of miracle ... there are doubters (as in most other situations of faith) ... some doubt (Matthew 28:17) ... this is understandable and reasonable.

The typical skeptic will say something like, "You know that's a parlor trick right?  And a bad one at that... Have you heard of a man called Derren Brown? I really hope that wasn't the best example..."

That was an actual comment from a skeptic after viewing the following video.  Please notice that in the following video, there is about a four-inch difference in the girl's legs that is miraculously corrected through prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.  HALLELUJAH!  Additionally, notice that the difference in this girls legs is even noticeable at the knee and she is wearing sandals.  Barring the use of CGI ... this video is clear documentation of a miracle.



The skeptic mentioned Derren Brown ... Below is Derren Brown's video exposing the charlatan way of mimicking this particular miracle.  However, please pay special note to the graphic above and to the video above when comparing the fake and the real.  Additionally notice, in the Derren Brown video, that before his demonstration of the fake ... there is a short video clip of the real ... and the difference is obvious if you know what you are looking for.



Also consider in the Derren Brown video that the person in the chair is acting as an accomplice to the deception.  If this person were in a real situation, they would feel and know that Derren Brown was manipulating their shoe and have opportunity to object.

Remember:  Demonstration of the fake does not disprove the real.

Below are additional testimonies of the real. 

Remember, Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).



Notice that in the video above, the cuff of the young man's pants also moves ... quite different from the skeptic video.

The following testimony is from The Loft Church in Herrin Illinois...


The following video is from Pete Cabrera Jr., Published on Nov 8, 2010

Pete Cabrera Jr's comments about this video...
"This was the first time I had ever seen this before in all my life.. This was 3 years ago and man would I have done this different. Please don't let my lack of maturity in this video push you away. I was new in this back in 2010.. I am learning to walk this out in humility. Forgive my Arrogance in this video I am a work in progress. Please don't blow off what God is doing in this video because of what seems like a lack of maturity. I am no longer this guy praise be to Jesus."



In Conclusion...

Just as there were magicians and fakes in the time of Moses and Pharoah (ref. Exodus 7:22) ... There also existed the real at that time.  Reference:  Forty-two Miracles by Moses (Ex 7:10)

Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

Don't allow the presence and possibility of fakes in the world to steal your faith today.

Note:  These techniques are essentially magic tricks that can be used to deceive.  Be aware of these deceptive methods when evaluating the difference between REAL and FAKE miracle events.

Again:  Don't allow the presence and possibility of fakes in the world to steal your faith today.

By knowing the real (Jesus Christ) and by believers working together in Christ, we are able to experience the REAL and spot the fakes also ... and TRUTH prevails.  God bless you!
