First, I apologize for not being able reply to your comments or publish a post when I said I would. I had a family emergency. My dad was taken to ER because he felt pain in his chest and had difficulty breathing.
Although, God gave me peace about the whole thing when I prayed to Him, I just couldn’t bring myself to blog while my dad was in the hospital. Besides, I have other responsibilities. The doctor said my dad has a coronary heart disease. There’s blockage in his small arteries, which explains the chest pain and difficulty breathing. It also caused his bp to fluctuates. Fast forward, God is good all the time. He heard our prayers and my dad is alright. The other good news is he accepted Jesus as his savior. You have no idea how happy I was. To God be the glory! The God we serve is indeed merciful, gracious and very loving.
This whole event made me realized of something that I have been keeping in my heart. Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, I have something to share with you. I have forgotten all about it for a long time. Then, I would remember it and forgot about it again. But, I was reminded of it again when I sought the Lord. I have shared this to some of my friends. But, lately, I felt compelled to share it again. I can no longer stay silent. It is my duty to share this with you all. It may be unbelievable, but it happened. Some of you may judge me, but even so, I have no right to conceal it. It is not mine to keep. It is time for me to reveal it to the world.
It was the year 1998 when God showed me a glimpse of heaven. I was meditating on my bed in my apartment when this happened. As I was meditating, my surroundings were suddenly in total darkness. I saw a pathway. At the end of the pathway, I saw a silhouette of a man with long hair. I didn’t know who it was. ( But, I realized it was Jesus afterwards) As soon as I saw the figure, it was like a magnet. I started walking towards that entity. But, as soon as I reached the end of the pathway, I suddenly saw clouds. I looked down and the clouds were moving like I was flying.
In a matter of seconds, the clouds parted like a curtain and I saw angels and cherubim. I also saw a staircase going up. Below the staircase, I saw someone playing a harp. I believe it was an angel. The angel was tall and huge. This angel had curly hair and was so beautiful. I was speechless and gazing at this angel. I was admiring this angel’s clothing when I suddenly felt like I was being sucked by a vacuum cleaner and went back to my body. As I was inside my body, I noticed my body was swaying back and forth. I tried to control it and tried to make it stop swaying, but I couldn’t. I felt like I was fighting my own body. After about 5 minutes or so, I was one with my body and was able to control it and opened my eyes.
The reason why I am sharing this experience is because I want those who do not believe in Christ Jesus to BELIEVE. Heaven is real. God is real, so as hell. A man named Ben Warner can tell you about it. I saw his comments on a video about a woman who was taken up and saw Jesus judging a soul who just died. In his own words:
“I died in 1997 came out of my body surrounded in darkness then a head the size of a car it looked just like us but had dark eye’s and teeth like a shark. It moved like a snake with smoke following and circling me. Then, it looked at me with hatred. Then, went back into the darkness and came back and opened its mouth went to bite down on me, then looked up looked back at me with fear and took off really fast. The sky opened up into a bright unblinking light a voice said to me ” I do not know you” I said God I know you please I have to go back. My brother needs me. God said I would be paralyzed. I said I don’t care Lord I have to go back. God then said “go tell everyone about what you witnessed” I said I will. I was selfless in His sight and was given a second chance. People, I didn’t believe in God when this happened. Hell is real. You’re going there if you don’t turn to Jesus. Everything you need to know is in the Bible. I cried out for months after my accident and read the Bible prayed all the time month after month, because I had so many questions I wanted answers for from what I saw . One night, I felt an angel standing next to me a feeling that can not be explained in words, but that angel poured water through my body. I had peace instantly having understanding came from reading God’s word. I’m not writing to debate with anyone on here. I’m just doing what God told me to do.”
Also, I want to tell you that God loves all of us so much. He wants us to repent and go back to Him; accept Him in our hearts. He is coming soon; sooner than most people realized. In the year 2010, a man named Bruce Allen was suddenly in heaven while praying and worshiping God. He saw people in white robes busying themselves. He also saw his aunt and was told that they were getting the banquet for wedding supper ready. It is now 2016 and according to some people who died and went to heaven and came back to earth, the banquet is ready. Even the Heavenly Father also commanded Jesus to “go and take His bride”as foretold by another man (forgot his name) who witnessed it. But, are we ready? Ready or not, He is coming. Let us repent and ask God to come into our hearts and surrender our lives to HIM. God said in 1 John 1:9 that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us and purify us from all unrighteousness. This is not a propaganda. I just wanted to share what I witnessed, so through it, others may believe and be saved and turn to Christ.
“Heaven will be inherited by every man who has heaven in his heart.”
~Henry Ward Beecher
Seek God’s face and start living a holy life. (See Colossians 3:12-17) Read the Scriptures. Forgive those who have wronged you, stop lying, avoid greed (idolatry) don’t be lovers of money or material possessions. Let us rid of anger, rage, malice, filthy language from our lips, stop slandering. Let us put to death whatever belongs to our earthly nature, sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. (See Colossians 3:5-10)
If you don’t know how to accept Jesus, below is a link to a prayer you can use when talking to Him. Jesus loves us so much. He wants all of us to go to heaven. He does not want anyone to perish. But, if you stubbornly deny Him, you won’t inherit the Kingdom of God. You will be left alone during the rapture. And, rapture is imminent my brothers and sisters in Christ. Do it NOW while we still can. Do NOT delay any longer. Because when He comes back, it will be too late. The peace and joy of the Lord be with you all. I’ll respond to all your comments as soon as I’m able.

Hello Anna! I was worried something serious had happened when I noticed you had not posted anything for a while. I am relieved to read your dad is felling good now. God bless you and your family 🙂
Oh, Eleonora! Thank you so much for reading. I greatly appreciate it. ❤
I have so many things going on. As I mentioned on my IG message. I finally stopped coughing. Great timing since I will be cooking for Thanksgiving. 🙂 Thank God. Now, I am playing catch up. Have a great day, Eleonora. Thanks for your support. ❤
Hello Anna! I am so happy to read you are feeling better! I cannot wait to see the wonderful dishes you will cook for Thanksgiving! Take care my dear!
SO very glad to see that your Dad is all right, Anna. Bless you and your family.
Hello, John! Thank you so much. I greatly appreciate the comments and well wishes. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Beautiful post!! And its a wonderful experience you had, I read somewhere its called Out of Body Experience. Some of the saints were able to do it.
Hello, Mithai! Sorry for my delayed response. I spend more time on IG than on my blog nowadays. Thank you for the lovely comments. I appreciate it.
Yes, it was an awesome experience. No words can ever describe what I saw. It was the grace of God that it happened. He knew my heart. He wanted me to go back to HIM that’s why it happened. It was not by chance or by my effort. It happened because He made it happened the same way as mentioned by the Apostle Paul in the Bible in the book of 2nd Corinthians chapter 12 verses 2-5.
Thank you so much, Mithai. I will always appreciate your visits and lovely comments my friend. Best wishes to you. Have a lovely day! Hugs! ❤
Thank you for sharing your experience Anna. Its inspires everyone one to have more faith ☺ Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving☺ love and hugs😘😘❤❤
Hello, Mithai! Thank you for the lovely words. It’s such a joy to hear from you. Thank you for visiting.
When one has seen that kind of revelation, one can’t keep it in. In the book of Acts (of the apostles) chapter 4 verse 20, the apostles claimed “For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen or heard.” That is how I feel up to now. I can’t keep it from anyone or to the world. It must be shared or told. And, it’s more than a pleasure to do so. You are right. It will inspire everyone, especially the unbelievers and will help strengthens the faith of all believers.
Thank you Mithai. I had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving with my family. Have a fabulous weekend. Hugs. ❤ 🙂

Thank you so much my dear friend. I hope all is well. ❤ 🙂

Thank you so much. 🙂
Your message is so very meaningful and beautiful, and all you have shared is so very true. There has been several times in my life when I was close to death, or dying and I have seen many things and heard his voice often and when I listened all always turned out well. I was given the blessing/gift to write and praise him…and I find it something I have to do always to share psalms and prayers giving thanks and praises daily for all he has done for me and those I love, all my brothers and sisters around the world are always in my prayers, as you and your family are too. I praise God for healing your father and I praise God for the love in your beautiful heart and spirit. Hugs and blessings to you and your family dear sister!
Greetings Brother Wendell. I am so happy that you stopped by my blog. Thank you so much for keeping me and my family in your prayers. I am truly grateful. Bless your heart. Yes, glory, honor and praise belong to God alone. Everything we do, we should do it for God. For, we are what we are because of Him. I conclude I have forgotten all about my experience because I was still harboring bitterness in my heart. It was not worthy of me to even utter it in my mouth while I was still living in sin. Bitterness is not from God, forgiveness is. It took me a long while to let go of it. God helped me and He blot it out from my heart. It’s a beautiful thing. There’s an overwhelming peace that no matter what anyone say or do to me, they will just ricochet. I thank God for He made me whole again. If it wasn’t for Him, I would not be who I am now. I am what I am because of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you my brother in Christ for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it so. God bless you as well as your family. Blessings. 🙂
