Analysis of Near Death Experiences as Phenomenon
are Near Death Experiences, and if that means anything to you,
they have been medically and scientifically recorded, explained and justified.
Hundreds of thousands of people--if not millions--died "clinically" for
a short while, sometimes even for days, but had a "medically" impossible
recovery without brain-damage or becoming comatose vegetables!
Most of these people had an experience of having gone out of their bodies,
floating and speeding into a spiritual realm. Some to Heavenly places,
others "not so Heavenly"! (more evaded and ignored)
Most Near Death Experiences share some or all of a collection of 10 basic NDE characteristics,
- Spirit emerging from the body, feeling cut off from the world, unable
to communicate with the living paramedics or relatives.
- Realisation of being dead with an initial feeling of loneliness or
- Meeting departed loved ones or angels, or even Jesus Himself.
- Entering and flying through a tunnel, vortex, pipe or starry universe
at incredible speeds.
- Encounter with and/or Embrace of a loving Being of light, often Jesus
- Instant highspeed review of pertinent highlights of their life in
full color and feeling, even feeling others' feelings!
- Seeing a city, meadow, heavenly resort or other place.
- Meeting a barrier, hedge, wall, line or other demarcation, portraying
- The choice and decision to return to life, and subsequent reentering
of the body!
- As a result a change of heart for the better and an improved outlook
It is understood, that all these experiences paint a
mere fraction of a 1 % glimpse of the 100 % Heavenly Reality! By
its very nature the Realm is limitless and infinite, and one barely scratches
the surface of this amazing, wonderful dimension—or should we say dimensions,
as there are multitudes of levels even within the Heavenly Realm of God,
Paradise and other stations beyond it!
NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES
Dogmatic Churchians seem to balk at Near
Death Experiences. They find it hard to believe that these experiences
are actually from God, and some even go so far as calling them "the
works of the Devil!", quoting scriptures against them that
even the devil can disguise himself as an "angel of light!"
The main stumbling block for these Churchians, appears to be the fact
that Jesus makes salvation so easy that He bestows His mercy on
unsaved people, even when these have lived
very ungodly or anti-God lives. Churchians seem unable to grasp why God
would stoop so low as to let all these people into heaven by giving them
a post-mortem chance to
be saved, whereas according to them and their
doctrines, most of these so-called rejecters "should
burn in Hell" for "rejecting Christ"
or even for "not knowing" Christ before death! See the following
example and excerpt:
was Jesus. I was stunned and said, "I don't believe in You." He smiled
and said the etheric equivalent of 'tough shit, here I am'. Looking
at His eyes, I asked, "You mean, You've been with me the whole time
and I didn't know?" And His reply was: "Lo, I am with thee always, even
beyond the end of the world." Now, I wasn't into "lo"
so I said, "Hey, man, this is the seventies and we don't say lo. Come
on." He kind of grinned, I guess I was amusing Him, and answered, "You
want to be reincarnated?" "Hey, give me a break," I yelled (only I made
no sound). "I just died. Don't I get a chance to rest?" "Take it easy,
hold on, it's all right. You can change your mind at any time."
I gasped, "I don't even believe in You and now You want me to reincarnate.
[Editor: re-enter the flesh!] Help!" Our
conversation continued. He even asked me to kiss His feet. No way. I
gave Him a bear hug and kissed His cheek. I got the equivalent of a
I was so happy with Him that words were no longer necessary. We then
communicated mind-to-mind. Suddenly I was aware God was coming. I came
to know that I had needed a human-looking Christ to relate to so I wouldn't
be scared. The Light came and I was given a choice
- I could remain trapped in earth, seeing and hearing everything,
but unable to help anyone, not even my daughter (I was told this was
limbo), or I could stay with God. I
chose God. The White Light in front of me was sorta like
a white light bulb only it was so strong. I remember thinking my eyes
should be burning, but then I remembered that I didn't have any eyes
to burn. God was Love and Love was light, and it was warm and it permeated
every molecule of me. This was so delicious, I was crying with torrents
of tears that didn't exist. It was so enormous. I was loved.
I didn't feel irrelevant. I felt humble, awed, and amazed.
For a long time after my near death experience, I ended my prayers with,
"You are soooooo big!" It was my way of expressing appreciation.
fathom how deep Jesus' Love will go in His patience,
mercy and deep understanding, giving
Salvation for free to all who desire it,
looking on their very hearts, nature and motivations! Like He did when
He manifested Himself to St. Paul--then called Saul--even when Paul was
persecuting and killing His children. Neither Paul was looking for Jesus,
on the contrary, he was "kicking against the pricks" of the
voice of conviction that had tried to get through to him for so long.
Yet salvation was given him "on a silver platter" almost! In
fact Paul was very much like these churchians who reject this extra show
of mercy of Jesus today for those who had gone so far astray. Yet God
had patience and mercy on Paul despite his extreme
self-righteousness that made him even murder Christians, "thinking
he was doing God service!"
Jesus revealed himself to Saul, as he was on his way to Damascus to arrest
these "dangerous cult and sect members!"
Saul wasn't even looking for the love of Jesus! But God knew his heart,
and even gave mercy to the merciless Saul! But He also knew what Paul
would do for His sheep as a result. He, the least of all the apostles
became the greatest of them all, being a missionary to millions of "undeserving
heathen" in 2 continents, winning hundreds of thousands of them to
Jesus! How a little bit of love can go such a long long way! Thank God
for His truly "amazing grace!" God help us all
to extend the same!
NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES
AND NEW AGE DESIGNS
support of Near Death Experiences, certain individuals and New Age Publishers
sometimes advertise a rather ephemeral "nirvana" type of picture of the
Eternal Realm, eagerly propping up New Age beliefs, now so much promoted
by the Powers-that-be, in their bid to create their ultimate "One World
Church" to unite the world under them!
Although this Publisher very much believes in the genuine bulk of Near
Death Experiences, they paint to him a solid picture
instead, of a "taste, touch, and handle"
type of Heaven, even though the bodies of most participants might
still be spiritual and rather "see-through" in form, during this dispensation.
The following excerpt is about a formerly atheist unbeliever's Near Death
He was told by the light beings about the new world to come.
According to them, God wished to usher in the Kingdom within
the next two hundred years. In order to do so, God had rescinded some
of the free will given to creatures, in favor of more divine control
over human events. This new world, according to him, will resemble
some near-death descriptions of heaven. People will live in such peace
and harmony and love that communication will be telepathic, travel
instantaneous and the need for clothing and shelter
eliminated. The lion will indeed lie down with the
lamb. Harmony will exist with the created order and people will
control the weather and grow plants through loving communication.
This picture very much coincides with the imminent Golden
Age predicted by the prophets, "the
Millennium", when Heavenly dimensions will merge with Earthly
ones, after the impending Grand Resurrection!
Precisely this Resurrection is something that is NOT COVERED in Near Death
Experiences, as this is something still in the future! This imminent Resurrection
is going to give flesh and bones (not blood
but light) bodies
to the now yet rather see-through spirit bodies
of the departed! Like the following excerpt:
My grandmother held
out her hand and said, "Come quickly." I reached out to take it and
stopped. "Wow," I said. "Look at my hand." My hand was clear, like
transparent gel, but there was light coursing through it like
clear blood. But, the light didn't run in irregular patterns as
it would in veins; rather, the light shot through my hands like rays
or beams. My whole hand sparkled with light. I looked down and saw that
my feet also sparkled with light. And I noticed again that they weren't
burned. My feet and hands were perfect and whole. They radiated this
glistening, beaming light, and I looked at my grandmother and saw that
her light was brighter than mine. Every part of her was more brilliant.
Even her dress was glowing white.
Jesus and the resurrected
Old Testament Saints already possess and ENJOY Heavenly Flesh and Bones!
Whereas the Departed of the last 2000 years are still waiting for the
Second Resurrection, which will come at the soon Return of Jesus to this
world in the Endtime that we are already living in today!
could feel the urgency in the spirits who were scurrying about
to do the work of God. I was then told that we are in the final moments
before the Savior will return to the earth. I was told that the
war between darkness and light upon the earth has grown so intense
that if we are not continually seeking light, the darkness will consume
us and we will be lost. I was not told when it would happen, but I understood
that the earth is being prepared for the second coming of Christ.
I looked down at the pathetic souls and realized that I no longer felt
as they did. I wanted to live.
NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES
DO NOT CONTRADICT, BUT CONFIRM THE BIBLE!
Most genuine Near
Death Experiences definitely confirm and support the Bible, as a formerly
antagonistic non-Biblical Near Death Experiencer recounts:
"When the [life] review was finished they asked: "Do you want to ask
any questions?" and I had a million questions. I asked, for example,
"What about the Bible?" They responded: "What about it?" I asked
if it was true, and they said it was. Asking them why it was
that when I tried to read it, all I saw were contradictions, they took
me back to my life’s review again – something that I had overlooked.
They showed me, for the few times I had opened the Bible, that
I had read it with the idea of finding contradictions and problems.
I was trying to prove to myself that it wasn’t worth reading.
I observed to them that the Bible wasn’t clear to me. It didn’t make
sense. They told me that it contained spiritual truth, and that
I had to read it spiritually in order to understand it. It should
be read prayerfully. My friends [shining beings] informed me
that it was not like other books. They also told me, and I later found
out this was true, that when you read it prayerfully, it talks
to you. It reveals itself to you. And you don’t have to work at it anymore."
Near Death Experiences obviously favour a monotheistic,
Jesus-centered presentation of Truth and the Realm Beyond!—Whether
He manifests himself as Jesus, or as the Messiah, or even in His great
loving understanding as some "no-name Enlightened One", in order to win
some uninitiated, unsaved "New Age" experiencer!—Yet, they are also, thankfully
so, far removed from narrow-minded shibboleths and theological hairsplitting,
divisive, churchy, Bible thumping fundamentalist, hypocritical "holier
than thou", temple-worshipping religionists.
I asked them, for example,
which was the best religion. I was looking for an answer which was like:
"Presbyterians." I figured these guys were all Christians. The answer
I got was: "The best religion is the religion that brings you closest
One of the questions which I did ask was, "What about the Jesus
stuff?" Now that was not a singular question; it's hard for me to
describe so you can understand the way it is. "What about the Jesus
stuff?" is like saying, "Okay, all kidding aside, was Jesus of Nazareth
real, we He a live person? A historical truth? Was He the son of God?
Is He divine? Is He at the right hand of the Father? What about the
Jesus stuff?" I can break off here and tell you that was basically
answered in the affirmative.
At one point I felt as if I were a speck of Light on Jesus' shoulder,
and I was able to experience full knowledge of all His incarnations
from the beginning of time. At the time this happened to me I was an
agnostic. As far as religious and spiritual aspects, I practically did
not have any religion at all. I had a Catholic Christian background,
but that was meaningless in my life. I was perfectly comfortable
without any of that stuff. But I did have some theories, I did have
a cultural and religious background. I had certain preconceived ideas
and was thinking that, should they be verified or should they not be
verified, whatever the truth is, that's what I wish to know.
So there was a desire for that type of knowledge. That's one question.
NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES
AND THEIR OBVIOUS FUNCTIONS.
We can see Near
Death Experiences in their obvious functions. They come across as God’s
nudgings and recruitments of the lost, or "advertisements of grace" to
basically-loving-at-heart, truth-seeking unbelievers or His uninformed
children, rather than some "haphazard natural medical phenomena,
only to be discussed at the discretion of empirical scientists, phenomenologists
or "neutral, broadminded" New Agers or other "higher SELF" worshippers!
They are obviously meant to show God’s loving
mercy to those who are His children at heart —which basically is anyone
who finds it in him or her, to merely acknowledge or call upon Him, but
who seem to have strayed far from their original life assignments and
thus were unable to do so in their lives so far! Therefore Near Death
Experiences seem first and foremost gorgeous manifestations of a more-than-merciful
supernatural God of Love, rather than vindications for philosophies of
God-haters like Nietschze or Freud or for pagan legends of Wodin, Zeus
or Hari Rabi or justifications for the desires of other self-worshippers
to be "on a par" with God or even "God themselves!"
It seems enough to be embraced by Him, become part of Him, and to be able
to join Him in glory, rather than to find proof in these revelations of
being His EQUAL!--The nerve of Lucifer!
NDE-s also come across as carefully tailored "movies", "feelies" or God’s
"multi media virtual reality presentations", to accommodate His premature
dying children, as one angel or "luminous spirit" explained to one Near
"Knowing what’s inside of every person, the angels don’t have to prove
anything by showing off. They know what each of us needs, so
they provide that. In some cases it may be a heavenly
meadow, and in another, something else. If a person needs to
see a relative, the angels will bring that relative. If the person
really likes jewels, they will show the person jewels. We see
what is necessary for our introduction into the spirit world, and those
things are real, in the heavenly, the divine sense."
JESUS IS PROCLAIMED
AS "THE ONE!"—THE MESSIAH!
Angels or Heavenly guardians explained to one man who and what Jesus
really is in the Heavenly Realm:
"He talked about Jesus too. He told me Jesus was a Master God
sent to Earth to teach humans how to act toward each other and find
their way back to the path of harmony with each other as well as with
Gaia.[Earth] I was told that Jesus is the Being that is entrusted
by God to ensure that souls evolve. He said that Jesus is of
the highest in vibration than any other soul. He
said that God holds Jesus in the highest of favor
because He was the best example of what humans need to
do. I then got to see Jesus. I saw His light. Jesus' light was the purest
I have ever seen. There was no need for words. There were only love
feelings that I cannot even begin to describe. I was told that there
is a hierarchy in the universe that is dedicated to preserving
the harmony of the universe. I was told that humans are an integral
part of this harmony and that the free will we have is a part of the
soul that allows humans to provide service to the universe."
It is our hope that these few excerpts of Near Death Experiences broaden
your perception of, and belief in the Amazing Heavenly
Realm. Have a good time!
