“We are still alive because the Lord’s faithful love never ends.”
Lamentations 3:22 ERV
I am going to be extremely transparent for a moment. The reason I am sharing this story is because I believe that people need to know the truth. The world that we physically live in is not the only dimension of existence. We hear the stories of people having out of body experiences after dying, only to be brought back to life with jaw dropping tales. But what if I told you that it’s all true. What if you yourself had one of these encounters, what would you do? Well that is exactly what happened to me in my early adult years. I want to share this testimony with others so they can know that there truly is more than just what we know here on this earth. We need to be aware so we can be ready. By ready, I mean have a real connection to Jesus before we die. Let’s chat about Earth is Not the Only World.
When I was younger I experimented with drugs a bit. In my mind back then I wasn’t doing anything too “hard” so I was okay. The truth is I was headed straight to hell I just didn’t know it then. It was a time in my life where I just decided I would try stuff just to kind of see what it was like to be on different things. I was so lost back then. One day I was hanging out with a couple of friends and one of them had something called salvia. It’s a drug that shouldn’t be but can be smoked for certain sedative effects. What’s worse is that this wasn’t a street drug. You could literally walk right into a smoke shop and pick the stuff up. What we didn’t know was that salvia can be deadly if too much is consumed. As my friends and I are sitting in their room, one of them lights up a huge “blunt” of the stuff. I watch them take a couple of puffs, then it’s my turn. I literally take two hits and that was it. I passed it back to them and suddenly I was thrusted into what I can only describe as the most bone chilling experience I have ever had!
As we are sitting there we all start laughing hysterically. While laughing with them I realize that things seem to be slowing down. The next thing I know is I can see my friends laughing but I can no longer hear them. As I’m staring at them trying to figure out what is happening, I notice that the room seems to be getting smaller. Wait, it’s not getting smaller, I’m getter taller? But I’m sitting down on the floor. I’m thinking what in the world is going on? That’s when it dawns on me that I can see myself sitting on the floor. I’m suddenly looking down at my friends and myself. Before I could think another thought, I was gone! I mean I was no longer in that room! But I have absolutely no idea where I was! All I see is white, there’s nothing else just white. Out of nowhere pictures pop up in front of me, I can tell they are some sort of pictures but I can’t see them. They are literally speeding by in front of me. Like a really long film reel, but moving at the speed of light. Next thing I know I dropped back down into my body on the floor in the room with my friends again. Wow, they’re still laughing. Oh my God!! Where did I just go? How much time has passed? I had no idea, all I knew is that I never felt worse!! I have never been more terrified, confused and just totally sickened to my core. I literally felt like I needed to vomit, as I got up I was completely sober. No more laughing, I couldn’t even talk to them. I knew that something very very wrong had just happened, and I didn’t know how to even begin to process it. It was the only time in my life that I cannot account for time. It just wasn’t there. As I said my friends were still laughing once I came back, so I don’t know how long I was gone. It was the scariest experience I have ever had. But the thing that startled me the most, is that even though I wasn’t in my body during that time period. I was still alive. I could still think and see. I knew that I existed but I wasn’t on this earth. Guys, my body was here, but my spirit was somewhere else, somewhere where time does not exist. No color, no time, no sound, just me. This means that when we die, we do still exist, we just don’t live here anymore!
Now you may be wondering why I am telling you all of this. It’s a pretty personal story, one that honestly I wasn’t sure about sharing. But I believe God wants to me tell this because he wants to open our eyes to the truth. The truth is that heaven and hell are real places. God created it all, just because we cannot see the other worlds doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Just like we can see the other planets in the galaxy but we do not reside there. Right now we live on earth in the body’s that God created for us to live in. They are conducive for where we live, on earth. But we have a spirit and a soul. They are only kept inside of our natural body’s because it is conducive. But it is not because they cannot exist elsewhere. And if our body’s die, then our spirit’s and souls go elsewhere to reside, heaven or hell. Our spirit and our soul is who we really are! That is why God is urging all of us to choose Jesus. To live a life of sacrifice with our natural body because he knows that this world is temporary. One day we will leave this earth, but we will still exist. When we die on earth our body only dies once. But when our souls dies in hell, it dies repeatedly forever. Where we go will depend on who we choose to live for while on this earth. We need to be aware of this so that we can be ready at all times. It wasn’t my time that day. Because God is faithful and loving he chose to let me live that day. But if I would not have been given another chance, I would be in hell right now!I thank God for allowing me to experience that, it really changed my life. I pray that it will help you too. Until our next chat, be blessed.
