    The wonder and power of God is on display again, as this time God ordered a brown recluse spider to do miracle work and bite a California man inflicted with an issue of paraplegic handicap.

    Typically, such a bite would prove a medical nightmare for a human, but this spider was given a mission from God, a mission that would heal a man of his paraplegia.

    Truly, dear friends, God is good. God is good all the time, and God is good.

    Brown Recluse Spider

    This ‘Miracle of Manteca’ as it is now being called, started some twenty years ago when Manteca, California native David Blancarte was living the typical biker lifestyle and nearly lost his life after a tragic accident. He lived, but unfortunately, lost use of his legs.

    David had grown use to the wheelchair for over 20 years, but God had a different plan for the rest of his life. In one little spider, God had placed a divine cure that no doctor on this Earth could deliver. A cure that healed paraplegia.

    After being bitten by the miracle spider, David rushed to the hospital to have the bite wound looked upon by medical personnel. An observant nurse noticed one of David’s legs had a spasm. She ordered tests of electric shock nature.

    David recounts, “‘When they zapped my legs, I felt the current, I was like ‘whoa’ and I yelled!’”


    The ecstatic, joyed nurse then had this to say to David: “‘Your nerves are alive! They’re just asleep!’”

    Just as Jesus ordered Lazarus to rise himself from the dead and come forth, so did God have a spider order David’s leg nerves to rise again! Now David has been blessed with the gift of walking and his story is a true testimony to the glory, power and agape love of God.

    David now plans on enjoying the rest of his life as a walking man, looking forward to the day he walks each of his teen girls down the aisle on their wedding day.
