What is a Near Death Experience?
Is There an Afterlife? Do You Believe in NDE?
The End of Life as we Know it
In 2001, my (late) husband, David became addicted to pain killers. He was a disabled Army Veteran and in a great deal of back pain. He tried to get help, but we no longer had health insurance, and his V.A. doctors didn’t recommend it. He was constantly falling and re-injuring himself, partially from the nerve damage caused by Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy and being high on the pain killers. His life had become an endless circle of pain and suffering.
Although he was in a great deal of pain, he decided he was going to get off the pain killers and try more physical therapy exercises. David quit the narcotics, cold turkey, and suffered through horrifying withdraw symptoms. He refused to let me call anyone or take him to the hospital. I tried my best to keep him comfortable with cool towels and sips of water when he could tolerate it.
All of a sudden, he told me to leave the bedroom. I wanted to stay, but he became adamant on my leaving him alone. So I went into the living room. Amazingly, I fell asleep on the sofa for two hours. I guess the exhaustion caught up with me. I was so surprised that I could fall asleep knowing what my husband was going through in the other room. I could only assume it was Devine Intervention because he had to have this experience on his own, uninterrupted.
I own this book, and its a great read!
In Loving Memory
The End of His Life or The Beginning of His Life?
I awoke when David emerged from the bedroom with an indescribable look on his face. He was no longer in pain and, in fact, had no more withdraw symptoms of any kind. He sat down next to me and proceeded to tell me this story:
He could feel himself slipping away, which is why he asked me to leave the room. The bedroom started spinning and turned into a black tornado. He was inside the tornado. As he ascended he saw millions of pictures of his life fly by him. He neared the top of the tornado and could see about ten feet left of it before a magnificent bright “sky” shown. He could see through the tornado at this point, and described Jesus standing there with his arms open. Jesus was speaking in a familiar language, but it wasn’t English. He pointed with His right arm and a dark shadow was drawn out of my husband’s body, and he immediately felt relief.
David described Jesus as wearing a white robe, “whiter than anything on Earth”. His arms were open and welcoming. However, Jesus’ left arm was much lower than the right. David said that all that was surrounding him was pure love. It went throughout the universe. He said we were all connected with this indescribable love. He became frustrated because there are no words that could explain what he saw and felt.
At that time he descended back down the tornado and landed on our bed. He felt total peace and amazement. That is when he came into the living room and began to tell me what happened. What David thought was a 5-10 minute experience was 2 hours. He said it was so magnificent that he didn’t want to come back here (to Earth).
A few months later, David had neck surgery which caused his left arm to become mostly paralyzed. He believed that Jesus was showing him that it would happen by lowering His left arm. David also tried to tell me that the remainder of the tornado was his lifetime on Earth, and he believed he wouldn’t live much longer. He said if it happened again, he wasn’t coming back. It was just too beautiful to resist.
I own this book, and its a great read!
In 2004, at the age of 45, David passed away from heart failure. I have vowed to tell his Near Death Experience story until it's my turn to leave this planet and experience the bliss of Heaven. I can only hope his story has inspired you to renew your faith in the Lord.
