True Near Death Experiences


"For we know that when this tent we live in now is taken down... when we die
and leave these bodies...we will have wonderful new bodies in Heaven, homes
that will be ours for evermore, made for us by God Himself, without human hands." 
II Corinthians 5:1 (Living Bible)
Scriptural parallel. 

After being stoned to death in Lystra by the furious mob who resented his ministry and miracles, Saint Paul was snatched from his broken body up into Paradise before being replaced into the repaired frame a few minutes later.  Saint Paul speaks of a visit to Heaven. 

"I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities."  II Corinthians 12:2-5 (KJV).

A Scientist who had a near death experience:

Joyce Hawkes, a cell biologist with a PhD, had an accident that forever changed her life — and her view of science. She suffered a concussion from a falling window. "I think that part of me — that my spirit, my soul — left my body and went to another reality," she said. She was surprised at the experience.

"It just was not part of the paradigm in which I lived as a scientist," Hawkes recalled. "it was a big surprise to me to have this sense of something different than the body — a consciousness different than the body — and to be in this wonderfully healing, peaceful, nurturing place."

"I think what I learned was that there truly is no death, that there is a change in state from a physical form to a spirit form, and that there's nothing to fear about that passage," she said.

Some Near Death Questions that scientists need to grapple with:
Numerous people have had Near Death Experiences after their hearts stopped, or they have stopped breathing; and 10 seconds later the EEG (measure of brain electrical activity) - goes absolutely "flat".  If so, how can any scientist say that this NDE is a conscious experience?  Also, there have been numerous blind people (blind from birth) who reported Near Death Experiences.  And for most of these their NDE's are "visual" experiences.  How can these be? It is thought that over 10 million Americans have had Near Death Experiences.  Why do "scientists" not study these more?  These are not drug induced hallucinations.  How can so many people report nearly the same details in their experience if they were due to drugs chemically acting on brain cells?  Most people who undergo NDE's say that they are not "dream-like" events, but instead, very real and structured "visits".  Also, for most people, an NDE is a "life changing" experience.

We must persevere / suicide is no answer:

Some revived suicide victims describe arriving in a kind of prison or dungeon and they felt that they would have to remain there for a very long time. They recognized that this was their punishment for violating the established law, which requires that each person must suffer his share of sorrows here on earth. Having willfully thrown off the burdens placed upon them, they usually find out that they must carry even more in the world to come.  Only God decides when a person has matured for eternity.

Standing in front of me was the most awesome sight - I could see a man standing in front of me, but he was not like anyone I'd ever seen before in my life. His garments were shimmering white in color - garments of light - I could see His bare feet and His hands were outstretched towards me as if to welcome me. I knew I was looking upon God … as I looked toward His face the intensity of the light seemed to increase 7-fold - you couldn't make out the form of his face as the light was so bright - such purity, such holiness, such beauty. I asked God if I could step closer. I felt I could, I wanted to see His face. Moving closer waves of more Love began to flow towards me, and I felt very safe.

God is IN LOVE with His people
Gerard Syber's Testimony

Lying in the hospital in 1993, Gerard had an anaphylactic shock, which closed my throat so that I could no longer breath. His heart stopped.

Gerard was whisked away to the "City of the great King". 

Brought before the Great King, whom, Gerard was treated like a son coming home from battle. Jesus showed intense emotions, and let Gerard know that He was in love with me and all those who profess His Name. I

Laura Geraghty's NDE

As she was pulling into the school parking lot, school bus driver Laura Geraghty began having sharp stomach pains. She was able to park her bus, but she kept feeling worse.

The pain "went right up my arm and into my chest, and I said, 'Uh-oh, I'm having a heart attack,' " she said.

She remembers watching the scene unfold -- as if from above.

"I floated right out of my body. My body was here, and I just floated away. I looked back at it once, and it was there."

Geraghty says she saw deceased loved ones, her mother and her ex-husband.

"It was very peaceful and light and beautiful. And I remember like, when you see someone you haven't seen in a while, you want to hug them, and I remember trying to reach out to my ex-husband, and he would not take my hand. And then they floated away."

Next, she says, she was overwhelmed by "massive energy, powerful, very powerful energy."

"When that was happening, there were pictures of my son and my daughter and my granddaughter, and every second, their pictures flashed in my mind, and then I came back."

What Geraghty had was a near-death experience, fairly common in people who go into sudden cardiac arrest.

Geraghty was down for 57 minutes. No blood pressure, no pulse, no oxygen, no blood flow. She was shocked 21 times before she finally came back with tales of the afterlife.

A real Resurrection of an African Christian Pastor

This is about a real resurrection of an African Christian Pastor

Daniel saw two large angels who were completely white, including the pupils of their eyes. The angels were so large that Daniel later wondered how they fit inside the ambulance. One was as big as the ambulance.  Daniel tried to speak to the angels, but one held his finger to his lips, motioning for his silence. The angels lifted him on either side, and Daniel realized that there were now two of himself. The angels were holding him under each arm of his spirit man (which was perfectly whole), while his broken body was lying below. Once they left the ambulance, Daniel became oblivious to the natural world.

Beyond the Darkness
Angie Fenimore, a wife and mother haunted by abuse in childhood and overwhelmed by despair, was in a desperate state of mind. On January 8, 1991, she committed suicide, hoping to escape her sense of emptiness and suffering. But clinical death didn't draw her to the light seen in so many near-death experiences. Instead, she found herself in a realm of darkness. The hell she experienced was far more horrific and personal than the old fire-and-brimstone metaphors. Her hell was a realm of terrifying visions and profound psychic disconnection.  Her experience demonstrates the Scriptural mediator ship of Jesus between us and the Father.

Li Tianen's Near Death Experience

Li Tianan is one of the older Chinese patriarchs who is partly responsible for the amazing numbers of Chinese who have been flocking to Jesus inside China, over a relatively short period.  This is indeed a great "end time" Chinese awakening.  The number of Christians in China could be as high as 80 million now.

Targeted as an unruly Christian pastor who refused to join the state approved Chinese Church, Li was persecuted and then arrested by the police.  He was then assigned by the Communists to a labor camp in Anhui Province, where he had to do extremely arduous labor, such as digging and moving iron ore.  In the same cell where Li Tianen slept were two prisoners who were assigned to make sure that Li did not move his lips to pray.  If he did, he was tortured. 

Once while working in the ore pit, Li tumbled 30 feet down an ore heap.  He was believed to have been dead.  Li says that while laying there his soul was flying around the prison camp "like an eagle" observing what was going on.  Li says he was dead for more than 90 minutes, while the camp doctor worked to revive him.  Li had stopped breathing, and he had no discernible pulse during this time.  The doctor already had ordered other inmates to prepare a grave for Li Tianen.  But suddenly Li opened his eyes.  The doctor seeing that Li opened his eyes, first asked him who he was. 

"I am Li Tianen" the Chinese pastor replied.

"Do you believe in God?" the doctor then asked Li.

"Yes, I do." Li replied.

Amazed at what he had just witnessed, the doctor said to Li; "I believe in God now".

A Christian Soldiers Near Death Experience
Roland Dell

Roland Dell's NDE

I would "black out" due to heart failure caused by a piece of plaque.

Immediately before blacking out, I would feel a being lying shoulder to shoulder with me, (on my right) and see HIM in shadow. I remember at this point the sound was my last sense to go.

As the Paramedics’ defibrillated my heart (one or two times) the sound returned in the blackness or void. As I regained consciousness it was if I was under the street and someone slowly slid open the manhole cover above me. I could look up and see the Paramedics faces working on me looking down.

As documented, I said "that feels better" although I only remember asking if I had a heart attack? I was told not to try and talk, so I said "being as no one said that I haven’t, I must have!"

The second experience I had was much different... In transport to my requested hospital my ambulance became stuck in traffic, I could hear Donny, (my Paramedic) saying that we must get on the highway and find a different route to a different hospital. I thought to myself, "This is not good" and only wished I could see outside. Immediately afterwards I could see a "birds eye view" of my ambulance moving "in slow motion" towards me, the clarity of that moment was perfect, I remember seeing everything looking down on the highway from the tan brick wall abutments to the puddles in the street.

Ex-Jehovah Witness NDE
by Haydee Cortes

I was baptized by the Jehovah witnesses in 1970. I believed in God but I didn't believe that Jesus Christ was God.  I believed Jesus Christ was a god created by the true God. I didn't believe in life after death much less that there was a conscious spirit that would leave the body when one died. I didn't believe in any kind of miracle healing nor I believed that God would communicate with people through visions or dreams. I believed that all kind of healing, miracles and visions were the work of the devil. I was very loyal to these Jehovah Witness teachings, and nobody could convince me of the contrary.

I then started going up. I was aware I didn't have a solid body. I was some kind of energy force moving at a high speed like in a circular motion. I was completely conscious. I knew I was me and I had all my memories with me. I knew I had left the earth. I found myself in a pitch black place.

Jim Wilhelm's "Heaven Testimony"

As I was traveling through the light, I was laying flat on my back and could see the faint outline of this image, which appeared to be very softly speaking to me, but I could not understand any of the words, but somehow I was profoundly comforted by him. My trip through this light seemed to be very short, then suddenly I found myself lying in the tallest bright green grass I had ever seen . As I looked around I noticed that all the colors were absolutely pure and very bright. I was laying down, as I noticed the blades of grass were at least four feet high and about six inches wide.

Looking to my right where the river came from, there was a beautiful stone built wall that was about one half mile high. It was about 200 yards away from where I was standing by the river. Beautiful music appeared to be coming from behind the wall. It reminds me of how it sounds directly outside Yankee Stadium during a sold out baseball game, only, behind the Heavenly wall there were people talking, and also people worshiping, and the sound of people speaking and worshiping in Heaven is much more pure than anything here on earth. The colors everywhere were extremely magnificent (I cannot stress that enough) and beyond any description one could ever believe. I approached the wall but could not see inside of it. It sounded like thousands, maybe even millions of people were worshiping within these walls, so I knew I was not alone.

Jesus mediates with God
the Father for Valvita!


With this reassuring look He (Jesus) led me to one side. He stepped away from me and went alone into the Light. Where Christ's light ended and God the Father's began, I cannot say. They both gave off light and their light was the same light! I will never forget this as long as I live. When Christ stepped away from me, he turned sideways and stretched out his arms as a bridge. One arm extended to me and one to the Father. His arms were extended as if they were making a cross and a bridge to cross over.

real miracles





4 1/2 year old Victoria says she was carried to heaven by 6 BIG angels --after falling off the top stair of a slide.

However, during this moment in eternity, she was taken to the throne room of God. She was sent back and tells about her experience from the perspective of a child.

During an accident by the pool, Mary Jo's granddaughter, Victoria, saw heaven and then was supernaturally protected from being hurt. She saw people in heaven and aborted babies and knew details of how some of the people in heaven had died. Very comforting for those who have lost loved ones.

 Describing God's Throne Victoria said; "It was "BIG! HUGE!" It was "shine bright and golden and very, very shiny." It was fiery, it had lots of fire, with lot of smoke around it. A huge rainbow around it was shine bright... and there was light bugs makin' streaks in the rainbow."

When she told us about going into the throne room with Jesus she tried to describe Him to us. Apparently, Jesus and God look a lot alike.

His eyes were white, blue and red and like fire just like God's eyes.

She described His hair, "His hair was white and all colors. It was shine white and almost like fire... like his fire eyes. Sorta like God's.

"He had a big rainbow around Him too."

When Jesus started to approach God's Throne, the big rainbow surrounding Him touched the huge rainbow surrounding God.

They merged with "sparks, and twinkling" like fireworks in colors more brilliant than anything Victoria could describe.

The terrible, terrible lake of fire
Athet Pyan Shinthaw Paulu's story:

I learned later that I actually died for three days. My body decayed and stunk of death, and my heart stopped beating. My body was prepared for cremation and was put through traditional Buddhist purification rites.

The king of hell told me to look into the lake of fire. I looked and I saw the saffron colored robes that Buddhist monks wear in Myanmar. I looked closer and saw the shaven head of a man. When I looked at the man's face I saw it was U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw [the famous monk who had died in a car accident in 1983]. I asked the king of hell why my former leader was confined to this lake of torment. I said, "Why is he in this lake of fire? He was a very good teacher. He even had a teaching tape called 'Are You a Man or a Dog?' which had helped thousands of people understand that their worth as humans is far greater than the animals." The king of hell replied, "Yes, he was a good teacher but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That's why he is in hell."

I was told to look at another person who was in the fire. I saw a man with very long hair wrapped on the left hand side of his head. He was also wearing a robe. I asked the king of hell, "Who is this man?" He replied, "This is the one you worship: Gautama [Buddha]." I was very disturbed to see Gautama in hell. I protested, "Gautama had good ethnics and good moral character, why is he suffering in this lake of fire?" The king of hell answered me, "It doesn't matter how good he was. He is in this place because he did not believe in the Eternal God."

My descent into death
by Howard Storm

Howard Storm

An atheist, Howard Storm was lying in a Paris Hospital in 1985 - dying from a perforated stomach.  His stomach acids were leaching into his other organs.  Suddenly he was standing up in a surreal brightly lit hospital room.  He tried to talk with his wife and a fellow patient, but they both ignored him.  Off in the distance, outside the room in the hall he heard voices calling: "Howard", "Howard".  Come out here the voices said, Let's go, hurry up".  We've been waiting for you a long time.  He stepped out into the hallway and could see these people off in the distance.  He could tell they were male and female, tall and short, old and young adults.  He followed them feeling very much alive.  Every time he hesitated they demanded that he keep up.  These people kept telling him if he would follow them his troubles would end.  A fog surrounded him, and it got gradually darker as he shuffled along behind them.  These people became increasingly angry and sarcastic with Howard.  He now felt he was being forced by an angry mob of unfeeling people to an unknown destination.  They next began shouting and hurling insults at Howard.  The more miserable Howard became, the more enjoyment they derived from his distress.

 Heaven and Hell


I can remember faces in the blackness calling out to me; inviting me to join their wall. I think that the people I saw were those who are not ready to cross over just yet and they are the ones that are seen as ghosts. Anyway I was drawn towards them until a light came flying towards me, it was a bird; the bird symbol of peace to be exact. Its light guided me towards an even brighter light that felt welcoming. When the brightness cleared I could see a line of steps with angels on either side singing some song I could not make out.

Dr. Rene Turner's Near-Death Experience
A Jewish Woman's NDE
I arrived in an explosion of glorious light into a room with insubstantial walls, standing before a man about in his thirties, about six feet tall, reddish brown shoulder length hair and an incredibly neat, short beard and mustache. He wore a simple white robe. Light seemed to emanate from him and I felt he had great age and wisdom. He welcomed me with great love, tranquility, and peace (indescribable) - no words. I felt, "I can sit at your feet forever and be content," which struck me as a strange thing to think/say/feel. I became fascinated by the fabric of his robe, trying to figure out how light could be woven!

Pastor Yong Thang's Testimony

Christian Pastor Yong Thang is a member of the Chin tribe in Myanmar (Burma).  He wrote:

I looked down and saw my body lying beside my wife. It was completely a lifeless corpse! I was well aware that my body had died. Suddenly, I saw large demons coming from all directions. They gathered around my bed and stared at my body. I then looked towards the sky and shouted, “Angels! Please protect my body immediately.” Thank God that although I had never known how angels looked like, they appeared when I shouted. Five angels came down immediately from heaven to guard my body. At the same time, the demons, which gathered around my body, disappeared instantly I suddenly remembered what was mentioned in the Bible ‘Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation’ (Hebrews 1:14).

After that, I looked what was ahead of me. I saw a place burning with large flames of fire.

"Thomas Welch Story"
An Oregon Lumberjack

Thomas Welch tells how he, while working as a lumberjack in Portland, Oregon, slipped and fell into a creek and found himself crushed by giant logs. It took workers more than an hour to find his body and pull it out from between the logs. Not seeing any signs of life, the workers concluded that he was dead. Thomas, meanwhile, in a temporary state of death, found himself on the shores of boundless flaming ocean. He was frozen by fear of the fiery sulfur rushing towards him. This was the fiery Gehenna that cannot be described in words. There, on the shore of the fiery Gehenna, he recognized the faces of a few people who had died before him. All of them stood in absolute horror of the rolling fiery surges. Thomas knew that there was no chance of leaving this place. He began to regret that he had previously shown so little concern for his salvation.

Oh, if only he had known what awaited him, he would have lived very differently. Then he noticed someone walking in the distance. The face of the stranger showed great strength and goodness. Thomas understood that this was the Lord and that only he could save his soul, condemned to Gehenna.

Stanley Wilson's NDE
When a friend and I were teenagers we were sniffing lighter fluid in my friend's barn; it was a very dangerous thing to do. Chickens walked in and then out, one walked back in and said, " Dusty you'd better quit that". I said Dusty did you hear that? He said, Yes that chicken said "Dusty you'd better quit that". We both dropped our lighter fluid cans and ran out. Man was God watching us that day!

I looked around in the great big room while still hanging onto the edge of the floor, off to the right and front of me about 10 feet away was a wide and long table. At the end of the table closest to me was a man sitting in a throne type chair; he was clothed in a white robe. I was to his back left side, I could see his dark wavy brown hair shine, it was a mahogany color and it came down to his shoulders. Also, I saw his pronounced nose from my backside angle realizing the Middle Eastern influence, of course I already knew who he was and is, the only begotten son of God JESUS CHRIST. He never looked around at me, but I knew he was aware of me.

Elizabeth sees the face of God (the Lord Jesus)
As I continued to walk, I saw movement ahead. When I got closer, I could see there were people in the field ahead. I felt relieved. Finally, I could get some answers. I moved swiftly, directly toward them. As I approached the group, I realized how large it was. There were so many people of all ages. No one appeared to be talking; instead, they were pacing about, as if they were anticipating something or someone.  

Suddenly, the group, including myself, slowly began to lift off the ground. I immediately gasped, terrified, my feet hovered about a foot above ground level. They were no longer touching the field below. I wondered how this could be. 

I wondered what kind of trick this was. Then before I could scream, we began to ascend quickly, higher, and higher into the night sky at a rapid speed. I was frozen with fear, wondering what had a hold of me (since the last time I checked, humans couldn’t fly). I soon realized that nothing had me, and that it was I, along with the group, physically ascending toward the clouds.

Once when I was eating dinner, I turned to a TV special on the Shroud.  It was the first time I had ever seen the image close up. I nearly dropped my plate when the outline of the image took on a familiar resemblance.

13 yr old David Goines
is hit by a cement truck
Quickly, I turned, took one step through the wall so to speak and found myself in total darkness. I looked back - nothing but darkness! Before I could barely think, "Now I've done it!," I apparently took another step; and I was instantly in the most beautiful garden I have ever seen. This garden was like a formal terrace which had been carved out of a rough mountain, just a few feet below the peak. Everything was white marble and evergreen. The air was so incredibly light and clear and fresh and cool. It seemed like I was breathing pure chilled oxygen. The garden was trimmed in evergreen shrubs, each a perfect specimen; and the fragrance of evergreen lightly scented the air. This place seemed so perfect in every detail. Directly in front of me, just a few steps away, was a marble bench which seemed to invite me to come, sit, and rest.

My heavenly Father has such a profound love for me and all of his children, for that matter, that I was offered through his son Jesus the opportunity to come back to him right then.

NDE of David Perry in 1762
This is a true story as written by Captain Perry himself.  It shows that near death occurrences have probably been happening all throughout history

Captain David Perry, lived from 1741-1826.  In 1762, when this Near Death experience happened to him (probably as a result of typhus), he was a  young sergeant serving with the British forces in the French and Indian War. Later, during the U.S. Revolutionary War, he served as a lieutenant with American forces, and he also was present at the battle on Lake Champlain during the War of 1812.

In this near death experience, recorded in 1819, Captain Perry relates his experience of actually being at the "Gates of Heaven."

Cara's Near Death
When I was about 4 years old, almost 5, my family went to a party for my Grandfather's birthday. 

I didn't know how to swim, and the motions that I made didn't help me to float whatsoever.  Immediately I began to sink, and I recall taking in large mouthfuls of water and a feeling of panic setting in.  I was trying to get my head above water to scream, but with each scream I inhaled more water until I felt I was going to burst.  At that point, this feeling came over me - it was a peace.  I remember thinking "I am going to die".  Perhaps an odd thought for a four year old, but I recall thinking it, and feeling peaceful about it.  I then recall, but quite hazily, a figure somewhat like a person, but angelic, jumping into the pool with me and cradling me.  Then blackness.

One by one the people stood in front of the magistrate and he read out their crimes from a scroll. Then the guards took hold of the person and threw them off the cliff into the fiery lake. There were lots of people in the lake and they didn't die, they just writhed around in agony. They held up their arms and their flesh was dripping off them. Many years later I saw an oil painting of the exact same Hell. Everything was the same in every detail. It was obvious that someone else had seen the same Hell I had seen. So I knew it was not just me..

Sister Josefa Menendez-description of Hell
Sister Josefa was a Spanish Catholic nun of the Society of the Sacred Heart and lived only four years as a religious, at the convent of Les Feuillants in Poitiers, France, where she died at the age of 33.  She lived from 1890-1923.

The devil is a reality, and in his dealings with God's saints he shows himself in the undisguised perversity of his vicious and corrupt nature. What must his cruelty be to those souls that are damned and are his for ever, if he is so pitiless with those over whom, after all, he has but limited sway?

The devil tried by every possible means to delude and beguile her, disguising himself as an "angel of light", even going so far as to assume the very features of Jesus Christ Himself. Most often however, he tried to turn her from her chosen path by inflicting on her grievous bodily harm.

At times Sister Menendez was violently snatched away from the chapel, or prevented from entering it. Again and again the devil appeared to her in the guise of a terrifying dog, snake, or worse still, in human form.

Soon the forcible abductions became more frequent, in spite of the supervision exercised by Superiors. Under their very eyes she suddenly disappeared, and after long search would be found thrown into some loft, or beneath heavy furniture, or in some unfrequented spot. In their presence she was burnt, and without seeing the devil, they saw her clothes consumed and on her body unmistakable traces of fire, which caused wounds that took long to heal.

God permitted the devil to take Sister Menendez down to hell. There she spent long hours, sometimes a whole night, in unspeakable agony.

Then Our Lord showed her the treasures of reparation and expiation she had gained by her repeated ordeals (6th October 1922 and 5th November 1922), and allowed her to witness in hell the devil's bursts of fury, when there escaped him souls of whom he thought he had a firm hold, but for whom she was offering expiation. The thought that she could console and rest Our Lord and gain souls for Him kept up her heroic spirit and excited her zeal.

Maria's NDE  
My name is Maria G Rodriguez and I had an out-of-body experience when I was young. One afternoon I came home from school and I decided to eat a little snack. I ate and felt tired so I went to the bedroom and laid down. I fell asleep and all of the sudden I felt my body being lifted up and I realized I was floating.

I looked on my right and I saw another "spirit" sitting next to me but when I looked at its face it was covered with smoke. I looked around and I saw "other spirits" sitting in pairs and their faces are also covered in smoke.

Then all of a sudden, I started to go up and up. I was so high up that I could actually feel the clouds on my face and skin. I felt so at peace. I stopped and I saw the tunnel with the bright lights at the end of it. I started to walk towards the lights and as I was walking I felt the peace and serenity of the place. I wanted to stay there forever and I never wanted to leave.

Greek Orthodox

The Journey Beyond Death

According to the teachings of the Church, the particular judgment of souls by God is preceded by their torments, or rather a series of tests; these take place in the regions of the air, where evil spirits have their domain (Eph. 6. 12). They detain the souls and declare and make manifest all the sins which these souls perpetrated during their lives. We know about these torments in great detail because they were revealed to Gregory, the disciple of the holy monk St. Basil the New, who lived in the first half of the Tenth century. Gregory in his vision learned about the hour of death and the passing through torments of a woman known as the blessed Theodora.

When Gregory asked her to tell him about her passing away and about the circumstances that attended her death and followed it, she told him in great detail the following. “My child Gregory,” she said, “you have asked me about a terrible thing, which it is frightening even to recollect”.

“When the hour of my death came, I saw faces such as I had never seen before, and heard words such as I had never heard. What shall I say? Cruel and hard to endure evils, of which I formerly had no idea, encountered me then because of my evil deeds. However, through the prayers and the assistance of our common spiritual father Basil I was saved from these hardships. But how shall I tell you about that physical pain, that stress and close feeling which the dying experience? Like a man who, entirely naked, falls into a great fire, burns, melts, and turns into ashes; so the dying are destroyed by their deathly illness in the bitter hour when the soul departs from the body.”

A Chinese Woman Went to Heaven and Returned

Another person who died, went to heaven, saw much of the glories of the golden city and returned to tell of its splendor, was a Chinese woman of Shan Tung Province, North China. This experience occurred in connection with the missionary activities of Miss Louisa Vaughan and is related in her book of remarkable miracles, "Answered or Unanswered", pages 42-46, from which we quote:

Lord Jesus came into my room and took me by the hand and said, 'Come with me!' In a short time we were before a gate of pearl. It was the gate of Heaven. Angels opened it and we went in. I saw many beautiful houses all of pretty colors. I walked beside the Lord on the golden streets. Miss Vaughan, I was so glad you had told me to unbind my feet; I would have been so ashamed to walk beside my Savior with little feet.

"Then we went on and I saw thousands of angels in a circle, singing and playing lovely music. In the midst was the throne of glory. The Heavenly Father sat upon it, and when I saw Him I was afraid. I hardly dared to lift my eyes'.

" 'You have come', He said.

" 'Yes, Lord.'

" 'You may go back for a while, but you must return to me here on the twelfth of the month'.
