NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

THE 10 NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCESNEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

Our Near Death Experiences showed us thatGod has prepared a future for you filled with more exhilaration and excitement, most breathtaking beauty, more love and depth with friends and family than you have ever experienced on earth. “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away …He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:1, 4

How did hundreds of people — doctors, airline pilots, bank presidents , tenured professors– who didn’t need to make up wild stories to make money (and would lose professional credibility doing so), come to describe an amazing similar place.

The prophets like Isaiah were told by God that the new Heaven and new earth will have similarities to the beauty of the present earth, but restored and improved:

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever
    in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
    and its people a joy.

They will build houses and dwell in them;
    they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Before they call I will answer;
    while they are still speaking I will hear.
 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
    and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.:”                                            Isaiah 65:17,18;24,25

God tells Isaiah His Holy City will be a place of beauty and joy, with plants and trees, vineyards and fruit, mountains and valleys, where all the creatures finally will live in harmony — as we intuitively know it should be.

A FEELING OF OVERWHELMING LOVE

In 69% of the cases, NDErs felt that they were in the presence of an overwhelming love in the company of family and friends or other mystical bodies. “The kind of love I experienced cannot be expressed in words” in an unworldly realm. It is beyond our finite, earthly language.

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

MENTAL TELEPATHY

The ability to communicate with the people or entities through a kind of mental telepathy was reported by 65% of the experiences.

GOD

Meeting a figure that appeared to be God or some divine being was reported by 56% of experiences. Interestingly, 75% of people who consider themselves atheists reported these divine figures.

TREMENDOUS ECSTASY

A tremendous joy of being in this place: free of their bodies and earthly troubles, and in the presence of loving beings. This incredible peace was experienced by 76%. It was a heightened sense of being more alert than normal: no more pain and doubts.

imagine heaven

UNLIMITED KNOWLEDGE

Many times (56%) they were in the presence of unlimited knowledge, and sometimes even received some or all of this knowledge, as if the wisdom and secrets of the universe were shared with them (which were lost on returning to earth). Heavenly travel was at the speed of thought.

AFTERLIFE LEVELS

They traveled through or were made aware of different levels or realms. Some were even shown – even experienced – what they thought was Hell, a place a great anguish.

TOLD NOT READY

Just less than half (46%) of NDE they say that their time in the afterlife came to a kind of barrier where a decision had to be made: to stay in the afterlife or return to life on Earth. They are  reluctant to return, even if they are told they have a mission to complete.  Is it any wonder why they would not want to return to earth.

SHOWN THE FUTURE

In 44% of the cases, people were given the knowledge of future events. They could be future world events, or they could be events specific to the life of the person.

THE TUNNEL

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

The “tunnel of light” has become almost a trademark of the near-death experience for 65% of people. Others feelings include feeling out of the body, rushing toward a mystical brilliant  light, moving rapidly through a passageway or up a staircase.

A DEBATE WITHOUT RESOLUTION

Most people who experience the NDE cannot be convinced that what they went through was not real, and it is proof for them that there is life after death.

LIFE REVIEW

The review of one’s life was common in 62% of the cases. Some felt like they were witness to every event and detail of their lives. In some cases, a small kindness turned out to be significant.

“For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”                                  Matthew 10:26

In this life review, the person can see what s/he did in life that really matters to God. Ultimately, what matters to God is how we treat others. Do we love unconditionally the way God loves us? Are we living a life for ourselves, fulfilling our desires but maybe not what God wants for us, OR are we living a life that allows God’s will to be done. That is, are we living a life for His purpose or ours?

Paul was reflecting on his own Near Death Experience: Continue reading NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

SEARCH OF LOST CHRISTIAN UNITY

LOST UNITY?

People need to know which Churches is that of Christ, since He founded only one Church, the only one capable of speaking in His name. Why would the Holy Spirit have permitted so many different divisions and enmities among those who claim to be disciples of the same Gospel, disciples of the same Christ?  The search: is unity lost?

god proof

Could it not be that these divisions have also been a path continually leading the Church to discover the untold wealth contained in Christ’s Gospel and in the redemption accomplished by Christ? Perhaps all this wealth would not have come to light otherwise.

It is impossible to imagine that this Church, instituted by Christ on the foundation of the apostles and of Peter, should not be one. But we can also understand how over the centuries contact with different political and cultural climates could have led believers to interpret Christ’s message with varying emphases.

Nevertheless, these different approaches to understanding and living out one’s faith in Christ can, in certain cases, be complementary; they do not have to be mutually exclusive. What separates us as believers in Christ is much less than what unites us.

Unfortunately, some Churches originating in the Reformation have a gap, which is considerably wider, since several fundamental elements established by Christ were not respected.

We can trust that “the One who began this good work in us will bring it to completion”                                                                     Philippines 1:6

JESUS: LUNATIC OR GOD

ONLY TWO CHOICES:Jesus lunatic truth

JESUS:  LUNATIC OR GOD

Yes, Jesus is and was the purest and noblest character known in history.  Please don’t come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being only a great moral teacher. He did not leave any other option: either His claim to be God is true or false. If He was a liar or a lunatic then he was also a hypocrite because he told others to be honest, whatever the cost.

There are only two choices: you can erroneously shut Him up as a fool and a liar or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. The discrepancy between the depth and sanity of His moral teaching and these rampant megalomania claims (unless He is indeed God) has never been satisfactorily explained.

JESUS LUNATIC GOD

 

A simple record of three short years of His active life has done more to regenerate and soften mankind than all the philosophers and all the moralists.

He always returned the wisest answers to tempting questions and He deliberately predicted His death on the cross and His resurrection on the third day – even the destruction of Jerusalem (70 AD)

The Old Testament contains 108 distinct prophecies that foretell the coming of one called “Messiah”, the Anointed One, and provides details about how and when He would arrive—even His birth in Bethlehem. The odds of just eight of these prophecies being accidentally fulfilled would be phenomenal. The New Testament proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah.

Does anyone else appear in history like Jesus? Only Jesus fulfilled the characteristics of the Messiah as described in the Old Testament. If Jesus is not the Messiah then no one will ever be and the bible is wrong. Yet, the New Testament documents are historically correct: they were written too early for legend to have polluted the accounts.

This is probably the most amazing miracle of the entire Bible — the eternal Son of God, himself fully God, became fully man and in doing so joined himself to a human nature forever. Jesus, a man unlike anyone else the world will ever see again, by eternally bringing together both the infinite and the finite, changed the course of history forever. 

Jesus is the only one who says, “I am God. I am holy. I am the only way to a truthful life.” No one, not Mohammad, not Buddha say this. Not anyone other than Jesus says that they faced the devil face to face and won.

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”                                                        John 1:14

God is writing your love story: let Him read it to you. Believe what God says about you: Beautiful, Loved, Redeemed, Forgiven, Righteous, Victorious and Purposed.

JESUS GOD

 

You may have a taste for sin, bur everyone does.  Say: I know I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I will trust and follow you as my Lord and my Savior. Guide my life and help me to do Your will. In Your name, Amen

It’s biblical: we just need to consider Jesus as our Savior and devout our life to God and we are saved. It doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with everything the Church says or everything in the Bible. One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you instantly forever.

JESUS GOD

“Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13 God speaks with tenderness; Do not fear, for I am with you: not only within call, but present with you. Are you weak? I will strengthen you. Are you in want of friends? I will help you in the time of need.

JESUS GOD

God without man is still God, but man without God is nothing. God created you with a longing in your heart that only He can fill. “Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love” Psalm 90:14

God hears your tears, even if you have been hurt so bad that you have thought of ending your life; even if you fell like there’s nowhere else to turn; that nobody wants me anymore; that you say that you are worthless and pathetic. You may have even have moments of rage. You may experience depression and all you can think about is your own pain. You don’t have to worry about love.  You are not always going to feel that Jesus loves you or that God is good, but you know He is by walking in faith. It’s the up and down of the journey.

Know that as long as God exists, you will be loved by Him; you are priceless to Him. God will not allow difficulty unless he has a divine purpose for it. You can’t be who God called you to be and still keep the same habits and maybe the same friends.  He may be slowly straightening you out.  In the end, God will bring you out better than you were before.

IS JESUS THE SON OF GOD?

god proof

 Why isn’t Jesus simply considered a wise man like Socrates? Or a prophet like Muhammad? Or enlightened like Buddha?

Christ is not simply a wise man as was Socrates. He is true man. In Him the divine is not confused with the human. There remains something essentially divine. This is not found in any other religion, much less in any philosophy.

Paul is profoundly aware that Christ is absolutely original and absolutely unique. Unlike Muhammad, He does more than just promulgate principles of religious discipline to which all God’s worshipers must conform. He is the one mediator between God and humanity.

Of course, there are those who say “I believe in Jesus Christ”, but they don’t affect the way they live. The answer is not that we now have to add hard work to our faith; rather, we haven’t truly understood or believed in Jesus at all.

Some people say that Jesus is just a crutch. They obviously have never had an encounter with Jesus.

JESUS GOD

Today’s people who live through near death experiences are talking about the same thing Jesus was talking about two thousand years ago.

Near Death Experiences

Colton (4 years old), who had and NDE, pointed to his both hands and the top of his feet and said,”that’s where Jesus’ markers are, Daddy.”

God promised Abraham that He would become the Suffering Servant, Jesus proudly wears His scars in Heaven for a reason: we need to remember!

“Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my hands and my feet.”                                                                          Psalm 22:16
