The proof of heaven starts with thousands of people around the world who claim to have had near-death experiences (NDEs). Scientists believe that these experiences can be easily explained as mere fantasies triggered by an extremely stressed brain. That belief changed for Dr. Eban Alexander.

Dr. Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a comma because of a rare illness: a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. His brain, that relates to thought and motion, had completely shut down. His condition was so bad that doctors were ready to stop all treatment. But then he regained consciousness and opened his eyes—and was healed: it was a medical miracle! Dr. Scott Wade who attended to him at the hospital concluded that having a full recovery from this illness after being in a coma for nearly a week, is truly remarkable.


During this laps of time he learned that “the death of the body and the brain are not the end of consciousness and that human experience continues after the grave. More important, it continues under the gaze of a God, who loves and cares about each one of us and it is about… where all the beings are ultimately going.” He claimed that the this place was real. Real” in a way that makes the life we are living here and now completely dreamlike by comparison”.

He saw his experience as a duty or a calling to tell people what he saw beyond the body and beyond this earth. He wrote a best-selling book: The New York Times book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. No matter what your personal beliefs might be, these ideas will change your life. You are learning about a new world for you: a vast and incalculably positive journey.

You are learning that there is a God in heaven

He controls everything and has a plan for you. He will give you eternal life in heaven if you live a life of humility, piety, dignity and inner poverty. All you have to do is follow 10 Rules (Commandments). And you don’t have to change any dates of your religious holidays! Wouldn’t Thomas Edison be surprised; he once said the he had “never seen the slightest scientific proof of religious theories of heaven and hell.”

While his body lay in coma,  Dr. Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself. Dr. Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Today he believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.  Continue reading PROOF OF HEAVEN

Our holiness is compatible with every state in life. Even the rich are called to live holy lives by using their wealth in productive ways that foster their own growth and the growth of others.  IDOLATRY OF WEALTH Idolatry? Who can tell me what that word means?” A nine-year-old’s hand shot into the air. “It’s like what some people do with money—they make it more important than God.” The wisdom of these simple words reverberated through the Sunday school classroom. Christians are called to reject the idolization of wealth in the modern consumerist society. Instead, they are invited to make productive use of material wealth for the ministries of God.  So long as individuals maintain a greater attachment to worldly possessions than to God, they will find it harder to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of the needle. An authentic life starts with a prayer: “I offer you this half hour of my swim for … who is struggling… or any other cause.” So that you “pray continuously” 1 Thessalonians 5:17  So while you are cleaning windows, you simply offer this hour of cleaning for thanksgiving for your family. You offer the actions of your life to God as a prayer. This is the secret on how the busy modern person can find intimacy with God. The interior effect of the work we do becomes more important than the exterior fruits of our work.

 Muhammad Yunus, a practical visionary, wrote a book called Creating a World Without Poverty. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for the Grameen Bank and himself.

“Poor people are like Bonsai trees. Society never gave them the soil to grow tall.” — Prof. YunusWorld without poverty

Professor Yunus introduces a totally revolutionary dimension to the free market economy called Social Business. It does not interfere with the mechanism through which the normal Profit Making Business (PMB) works and prospers capitalization, expert business management, competitiveness etc. but investors here do not receive any dividend, though they can recover their investment if they want to, to reinvest in other Social Business or PMB. The social business is not a charity, because, it returns the original investment back to the investor.

You may well be one of the richest 1 percent owning 40 percent of the world’s assets.

World Economic Pyramid WORLD POVERTY
By contrast, the bottom half of the world’s population owns barely 1 percent of the planet’s assets.

While free markets have swept the globe and brought positive change.  We are so conditioned to accept the free-market as it is that we cannot even conceive of it having short-comings. Nevertheless traditional capitalism cannot solve problems of inequality and poverty because of its view of people as one-dimensional beings concerned only with profit. In fact, human beings have many other drives and passions, including spiritual, social, and altruistic.

The satisfaction gained in achieving the social goals are the only motive behind the investment, and the business will be evaluated according to that standard. Essentially it is a non-loss, non-dividend business aimed at social objectives education, health, environment, whatever is needed to address the problems faced by society. The profits here remain with the business and help it to grow further.

The whole thing is based on the premise that entrepreneurs need not be motivated only by the profits they personally receive, but can also be motivated by social goals and may enjoy success there with equal satisfaction. The important thing is not to mix up a Social Business with a PMB. In fact the inclusion of Social Businesses alongside PMBs in the business world will give the free market capitalism a nobler and a more fulfilling purpose. Its advantages over charity are many efficiencies, sustainable continuous use and utilization of business innovations.

This is a far more radical idea than mere corporate social responsibility, which in his mind tends to window-dressing and has an inherent conflict of interest between the requirement to maximize profit and the intention to do good.

“I love you.

You were put on earth, and all of you My brothers and sisters, for a special purpose. You were created for heaven to be saints.

To reach this goal you will have to struggle and suffer and My life on earth is an example of what I mean.  Do not be afraid to commit your lives to Me and keep Me in view all the time.

You will have to root out sin in your heart as well as all your sinful attachments. This is always a struggle because sin can stick to
you like rust to metal.

With My grace you can get rid of these embedded habits of sin. You will have to be vigilant every day that you do not return to your former ways.

Cultivate, My dear friend, good habits of prayer, of reading the bible and good books, of thanking instead of gossiping, of forgiveness instead of harboring resentment, and of loving instead of criticizing and complaining.

Be humble as I am humble of heart and I will bless you. Accept everything as a gift to you from My Father and praise Him for it.

Be grateful for every sign of love and friendship and know that I am always with you. Let us walk hand in hand every day. I love you.”

World Missions

World missions had taken a beating after World War II. There was a great move for independence and nationalism. Missionaries, which represent Western culture, were attacked.  These Western missionaries were the first symbols of the West to go. When Western missionaries began leaving, they also started to pull out their financial support. Now 86 nations–with more than half of the world’s population –forbid or seriously restrict foreign missionaries.

Another reason for failure was that Western believers experienced worldliness, pride and unbelief. They used the humanist social gospel, where the emphasis is on the ”care of the whole man”. Humanists will not declare that the most important root cause of poverty is sin. This approach avoids the most important part of man: one’s spiritual life. 

Missionary schools and hospitals have come and gone in the last seven generations precisely because they did not deal with this root cause. Social work is not enough: what is required is evangelism and church planting: someone has to stay behind and nurture the new believers into maturity.

In foreign missions, people are starving because they have been enslaved by sin. The battle against hunger and poverty is really a spiritual battle, not a physical or social one. The only effective weapon one can use is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Your relatives all tell you it is important to succeed. Yet, when we look at the poor of the world they believe that their poverty is the excuse they have for not succeeding. They are too busy looking for the next meal and they have no time for anything else. They are in a survival mode and there is a total absence of faith and hope: they have accepted their fate. They have no dream of a great future.

Many churches experience the same phenomena: they have no dreams. They may not be in a survivalist mode, but they are in a maintenance mode. There is total absence of hope of a bright future.

In Nehemia 2, we see that there was the same sense of lost hope in Jerusalem. The walls were in ruins as was many of their houses. Nehemia pointed to their pain. “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.”                                                                                     Nehemiah 2:17

Sometimes pain is useful: it points us to the fact that something is wrong and something has to be done. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work… I answered them by saying, “The God of heaven will give us success.” Nehemiah 2:18, 20: there was a need for a reawakening.

Today we are continually bombarded with bad news in all parts of the world including Europe and North America. This leaves us with a sense of giving up.

Yet when man and God come together, all is possible. God inspires the heart:”Yes, we can do it.” We are destined to do great things with God. We are powerful with God, because we are children of God. We simply must have faith in His miracles. Hearts will eventually change. They will see the glory of God through you.

World Missions

We read in Matthew 28 of the need to make disciples of all nations when Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew28: 18-20. This is what is commonly called “the Great Commission”, one of the most quoted passages of the New Testament.

There is a similar reference in the Old Testament: Daniel prophesies about this coming One, which is what Jesus is echoing here. In Daniel chapter 7 notice what is “given” to the “One like a Son of man”: ” I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.”                  Daniel 7:13 -14

                     Introduction: Pastor Gani Sison from the Philippines

World Mission


The average North American Christian gives only 50 cents per week to global missions, which is known as the Great Commission. Missions are the primary task of the Church, yet it receives only one percent of all our finances.

Born into affluence, freedom and divine blessings, Western Christians should be the most thankful people on earth. Along with these privileges comes responsibility:  what should one do with these unearned favors?  The Gospel has only one response: share.

World missions

“I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need in order that there may be a fair balance.Corinthians 8:13-14

God has not given us an abundance of blessings so that we can sit back and enjoy the luxuries of this world, or gorge ourselves on spiritual Cd’s and deeper- life conferences.

What does God really want?  He really wants us to realign our lifestyle so that many non-essentials of our life can be re-invested in the wealth of the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, our Christian missions lack the total involvement from the support of the Body of Christ.

Have we lost touch with the Supernatural?

Catholicism is the largest faith community in the world: more than a billion members. We have built a culture based on appearance: everything looks good, but scratch the surface, and you will discover little substance. If you ask 100 Catholics what the church’s mission is, you would get 100 different answers. Catholics must know their mission.

We are failing to do as Christ did — namely, to reach out and meet people where they are in their need, in their brokenness. We are failing to engage them. We are failing to show them how Jesus can ease their pain and make them whole again.

Gandhi once said after reading parts of the Bible on becoming a Christian, “If I had ever met one, I would have become one.”

CATHOLICISMLife can be wonderful, but brief.

We often confuse pleasure with happiness.  So we spend a large portion of our lives chasing shadows. We have given ourselves over to a thousand different whims, cravings and fantasies. This has nothing to do with real joy in our life. 

Today’s generation questions everything:  we have grown skeptical, and even cynical in our search for truth. We are overloaded with information and overwhelmed and tired — we merely want to survive.

“Most people lead lives of quiet desperation”, observed Henry David Thoreau.  In fact, the treatment for depression is ten times greater today than it was even 15 years ago. The suicide rates among teenagers and young adults have reached epidemic levels.

We become what we celebrate. What are we celebrating? What are we here for? What is the meaning and purpose of life? Have we been distracted?  Actually, the loss of our essential purpose is the cause of the great modern madness. The great misery is to be purposeless. People have simply become disoriented.

                           Joy is usually measured in moments                                                                   while unhappiness seems to go on forever.

How do I find joy in my life? A better question is:  How do I find joy in my life  which is usually by bringing joy to other people?


The human heart is on a quest for happiness — as the desert yearns for rain. God wants us to be happy.  The philosophy of Christ is the ultimate philosophy of human happiness. It isn’t just a way of life: it is the way of life. “I have come that your may have life and have it to the fullest.” John 10:10  

So, we must ask the question: what work do You wish for me to do with my life? What is Your will for my life?  So if you want to be happy for a lifetime and beyond, seek the will of God for your life.

Jesus is the single greatest agent of change in human history.  He has captured the imagination of every generation.  He gives us a vision: “Where there is no vision, the people will perish.” Proverbs 29:18

St. Augustine’s famous saying, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you, Lord.”  In God will man find the truth and happiness, which he never stops yearning for.  This is the mission of the Church: to be God’s direct and intimate response to our heart’s unceasing desire for happiness: to proclaim the Gospel to the people of every nation in every age; to share the life-giving gift of the Gospel.  “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”                                                                                   Mark 16:15

We are created to be loved and to love, and there is a restlessness, a longing for more, a profound discontent with our lives and with our culture. Our generation wants to witness someone , anyone –just one will do — living an authentic life: “don’t tell me — show me!”

Holiness is surrendering to the Will of God; it is letting our decisions be guided by the Holy Spirit. So, God calls each of us to live holy lives. We are perfected by the grace of God, which is the power of God alive within us.  It is a gift from God when we cooperate with His plan for our lives.

Holiness and prayer are a matched couple, yet many people fail to establish a daily habit of prayer. God is our Friend and friends like to know what is going on in each other’s lives. Those who pray daily know that if you neglect prayer for one day, you become less focused. Why? Because prayer allows you to hear the voice of God in our lives and to walk where He wants you to walk. In the silence, God speaks and we are able to hear His quiet voice; He bestows His wisdom on us.  All this happens during 10 to 20 minutes of the day.

The rich are called to live holy lives by using their wealth  in productive ways that foster their own growth and the growth of others. The same is true of the talented people who are expected to share the benefit of their talents. It is all about being of value to others. Those who are holy enjoy a richer, more abundant experience of life, more than you can imagine. There is nothing more attractive than holiness — more inspiring and more intriguing.

Christ said to Peter, “Put out into the deep water and lower your nets for a catch” Luke 5:4  The world, on the other hand, is constantly calling us to fish in the shallow water.

Love is the core of Jesus’ philosophy. For to love is to give your self freely. Yet to give yourself to another or to God, you must first possess your self.  We must become the best-version-of-ourselves, with the loving nature of God.

 Explaining Depressing Feelings


How do you explain depressing feelings? Have you ever felt that the world is full of deception – nothing and no one should be trusted. Such notions, arises from disillusionment, distrust of one’s fellow beings, unhappiness and eventually, despair. Life has suddenly and devastatingly become devoid of meaning; we arrive at a time of life-threatening crisis. Meaning and purpose for life cannot be found. Where and to whom can one turn? Who can one trust to find the right answers?
We seem to be ‘looking through a glass darkly’ — looking at what was going on around us as if we were a detached observer – being there and involved but also feeling that somehow we weren’t really present.
We cry more than any normal person should; we don’t care to eat, cook, or clean, we don’t care to see our friends. We can’t focus at work, or carry out our daily responsibilities at home. When we step back and think about it, we wonder, is there a point to being alive? 
It’s a frightening thought when we realize we’ve just admitted to ourselves there could be no reason to be here. There is a difference between being sad, and being sad for no reason. A sadness deep in your bones that does not want to go away after time and effort. It’s not something anyone wants to readily admit.

We practice making lists on why our life is something to be envious of, but that doesn’t help. It makes one hate oneself more for being sad when one has it so good. Then you say to yourself that you are a failure…and it spirals from there. It’s awful. It’s exhausting. It’s black.

People brush you off by telling me you that you need, “exercise and a combination of certain vitamins,” or, “think of the starving children in Africa without clean water to drink.”

So you realize that you need help. You  struggle with showing any signs of weakness, but asking for help is not something you can easily do. You are not sure there is anything any one person could do or say; you suppose this is a dark valley ; you have to go at it alone. You can only hope you make it out the other side.

You are afraid that you will spend your  life chasing happiness. But at times, you wonder if you are just running.


A friend expresses concern that one day your stress may actually lead to chronic illness or depression.

When it is dark, you can see the stars with GOD.

BEING HOLY What is the meaning: being Holy?

Many people think holiness is only for a certain few chosen ‘saints’, but this is not the truth.  God has created each and every one of us for holiness. 

I know it isn’t ‘cool’ these days for many people in the world to hear teaching about God, let alone Jesus.  Mmmmmmm.  Whether it’s cool or not, the fact is still that we are all empty, rattling tin cups when we look elsewhere for the thing our heart truly desires and was created for.  Love. 

You’re worth it’!  You are that one sinner that heaven waits to rejoice over, whether you know it or not.

Please don’t wait ’til you’re faced with your mortality to contemplate this fact.  Please don’t miss the entire lesson of your life here on earth – seeking God and growing in love.  God is an atom bomb of love! 

Being holy

Being holy is having a relationship with the living God! Then we must daily live a set-apart life, not trying to “blend in” with the world, but instead living according to God’s Word as we study the Bible and grow in it — doing God’s will.

“I will be your God, and you will be My people,” says Yahweh.                                                                                                     Leviticus 26:12; Hebrews 8:10

In 1 Peter 1: 15-16, Peter writes to believers, “like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.” not by coercion or out of duty like an abstract action but out of real love for God.

We have a relationship with the living God! Then we must daily live a set-apart life, not trying to “blend in” with the world, but instead living according to God’s Word as we study the Bible and grow in it — doing God’s will.

We set ourselves apart by showing our joy, our peace, and our love. All three of these things come fully only from Christ, and thus those who are set apart by Christ and for Christ should be able to exemplify them to those who are not yet in Christ, but still of the World. I believe 1 Peter 3:15 says this: “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”

To be a Christian means far more than merely to believe in God—as if the Christian faith were reducible to a system of beliefs—it means to be united with Jesus in and through the Holy Spirit. “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me”, says Paul.  Galatians 2:20. Elsewhere, Paul tells us that our lives are “hidden with Christ in God” Colossians 3:3  Passages like these convey the mysterious, yet utterly real fact that, by virtue of our union with Jesus, we participate in the life of God: He dwells in us, and we dwell in him.

Vassula Reydon received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpt come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Divine Works are beyond human understanding; many souls do not respond to My Works for these souls seldom want to change.”

 “These souls are attached to the world, to what is material; even though they call themselves spiritual, they are not, since they cling on what they see with their physical eyes and touch with their body; they are stubborn, living aridly; their heart will not open to let My Divinity pour into them.”   

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. ”                                                                                   1 Corinthians 2:14

“Yes, there are many factors that obstruct them from dwelling in My Light; I have said and will repeat again and again these very important words: “anyone who does not welcome the Kingdom of God like a little child, will never enter it”; be innocent, believe in a child-like-faith, then My Divine Light will encompass you and you, like a flower, will face the sun and open, allowing My Light to pour in you.”                                                                                                                                           Message to Vassula:  May 16, 1988


“Remember My Presence; do you know how much I desire this meditation upon My Presence? My Presence is also a very important Mystery that most of you seem to forget; meditate on My Presence; children, whom I love with an everlasting love, please Me by remembering My actual Presence; train yourselves by using these words, we, us, you and I, I and you, us; include Me in your activities, in your discussions and in your thoughts; respect My Presence, never forgetting that I am the Holy One; by remembering Me, you will sin less knowing and remembering that I Am with you.”  October 24, 1988 Continue reading MEANING OF BEING HOLY

It is not the people who are the problem, but the spiritual forces of evil that prevail in the world.

Satanic opposition is permitted by God.  Sometimes it is permitted so that it can be used by God. You may pay little attention to God until you suffer a time of distress; then you begin to hear what He is saying to you.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”                                                                                                 Ephesians 6:12

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17


To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

Deliverance of EVIL SPIRITS

Evil spirits of “sorcery or divination” were evident in the Old Testament: evil spirits are real in the New Testament but God has anointed us with new powers of deliverance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is from a Précis: YOUR LIGHT SHINES IN MY DARKNESS      By Rev. Joseph Kane, OM

Jesus Himself did not emphasize the miraculous; He saw physical healing as an ordinary aspect of what He called “works“, rather than miracles: a form of Good News in action. Healing of the spirit, emotion and body was all part of the message of salvation. So the apostles preached by healing and this continues today.

Physical Healing

Most people don’t know that God want to heal them:

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. ”                                                                                                                                           3 John 1:2

“They were anointed by the Holy Spirit with power; because God was within them, they cured all who had fallen into the power of the devil. “So the kingdom of God is not just words: it is power.             1 Corinthians 4:19,20 It is power to transform lives. It is Good News


Too many Christians are broken.  They are so broken that they cannot carry out the commandment to love God and their neighbor. Their inner turmoil prevents them from following God’s will.

Paradoxically, they may believe that this illness or brokenness is part of God’s will. So they don’t pray for a release for what God wants of them.

There is a mistaken belief, that you should carry your cross, as Jesus did.  Jesus does say to bear your cross, yet whenever He meets people who are sick, He cures them. This inconsistency can be explained by describing this cross as a cross of persecution, which comes outside of man.

The words healing and peace are synonymous with each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling. 

Physical sickness in our bodies is caused by disease or accident.  Sickness may simply be a message to you to keep your life in balance. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing.  These states often create illness.  The word “dis-ease” means without ease. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance.

We must use the natural means of preserving health. Physicians are instruments that are ordinarily used to bring about healing for trauma.  Psychology helps to bring problems to the light for what they are. One can administer to the body the necessary supplements and the body will heal itself to an extent. Surgeons can physically repair the body. But the miracle of healing is still by Jesus’ stripes (whippings).
