KINGDOM OF GOD: LIFE AFTER DEATH
There is pseudo-scientific evidence for those who still wonder or who can never comprehend anything in the spiritual realm. There are well documented personal encounters in a life after death occurrence where people died for short periods of time and came back to relate their experiences: a voyage in a long tunnel toward a light that most believed it to be God. Their whole life passed before them in seconds while in the presence of a judgment of a Supreme Being. Thereafter they are momentarily reunited with people that had died previously in an unbelievable peaceful milieu from which they did not wish to leave. Obviously in this life-after-death experience, their spirit was always forced to return to their bodies.
Conversely in a few instances the spirit was drawn into a more foreboding place. In one true story, a recovering drug addict thanked his assailant, a drug enforcer for saving his life, the life of his wife and his two children. In the hospital emergency where he died for a half hour, his spirit witnessed a foul frightening abyss. This experience scared him so much that he eventually became a born-again Christian. He was enthusiastic to recall this story to the drug enforcer who had broken his arm in many places; he wanted to tell him that he forgave him.
Stories like this appeared in the book section of the Reader’s Digest collected by a heart surgeon. This was based on a book written about 250 people from all over the continent who experienced similar phenomena and who did not know each other. This article attracted so much attention that the Reader’s Digest devoted the book section of a subsequent month based on all the letters they were receiving.
A recent Angus Reid poll (Feb/96) found that most Canadians are interested in almost everything spiritual-except the churches.
LISTEN TO THIS SECRET
We shall not die, but in an instant we shall all be changed …
So when what is mortal has been clothed with what is immortal … 1 Corinthians 15:54
Death is destroyed; victory is complete …
But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
