Profound Testimonies of Near Death Experiences

One common misperception is that everyone seems to label "their" experience with "a Near Death Experience". In fact, there are a variety of experiences that people experience that may present supernatural tendencies such as dreams and visions, and experiences within consciousness, and while loosing consciousness.

The best evidence to point to review is the evidence of Near Death Experiences of those people who were clinically dead, and could verify conversations and events confirmed by medical personnel after they are clinically dead.

Many neurosurgeons have conducted research that we went over such as
Dr Bruce Greyson, Pim van Lommel, Dr Melvin Morse, Dr Sam Parnia, Dr Peter Fenwick, and Kenneth Ring. ALL of these doctors have studied the field of NDE, and have narrowed their studies down to qualifying patients who only include cardiac patients who have fit into the category of clinical death. This means they are only studying the patients who are clinically brain dead, with no breathing, and no heartbeat. Within their studies they have found that many individuals report having better vision perception, better hearing, despite a dying brain incapable of those advanced functions.

Here is a summary of evidence which we found pretty remarkable findings:

1. Patients have advanced perception of sight, and hearing, and testify to events and conversations while being Clinically dead while being out of their body.

The patients can accurately recall conversations and events while they are clinically dead such as surgical techniques and nurses performing specific tasks in the room while the individual is dead. One of the most interesting studies were the people met people in their families they didn't know existed such as abortions, aunts or uncles that later verified to be true. Studying only the clinically dead patients throws out all the preconceived notions that the brain is capable of producing images, or are a result of drugs or stimulus because the brain is not functioning.

Pam Reynolds had an out of death experience where she met Jesus while under brain surgery. She accurately described the medical equipment that was covered which she would have had no knowledge of before the surgery.
In addition, it must be noted that the blood from her brain was drained, so we have to admit that in this case, she had a flat EEG, and she was brain-dead.

In the Documentary The Evidence of Heaven, a patient experienced a NDE and floated out side of her body above the hospital, only to see a red shoe on the roof of the hospital. Later on, medical personnel retrieved the shoe off the roof. Here is a incredible story that proves that the brain doesn't produce NDE out of stored memory.

2. Near Death Experiences of Individuals who are dead for a Long period of time.

Don Piper was killed instantly from a 18-wheeler struck his Ford Escort head on. He was killed instantly - pronounced dead by four sets of EMTs. A pastor from the same conference Don just came from began praying for "the man in the red car." Don came back from the dead 90 minutes after being dead. To date, 34 surgical procedures have taken place. He walks only as a result of miraculous and in some cases medically unexplainable circumstances.

George Rodonaia underwent one of the
most extended cases of a near-death
experience ever recorded
. Pronounced dead immediately after he was hit by a car in 1976, he was left for three days in the morgue. He did not "return to life" until a doctor began to make an incision in his abdomen as part of an autopsy procedure. Prior to his NDE he was a neuropathologist
as well as an avowed atheist. After his experience, he devoted himself exclusively to the study of spirituality, taking a second doctorate in the psychology of religion. Rodonaia held an M.D. and a Ph.D. in neuropathology, and a Ph.D. in the psychology of religion. He delivered a keynote address to the United Nations on the "Emerging Global Spirituality." Before emigrating to the United States from the Soviet Union in 1989, he worked as a research psychiatrist at the University of Moscow.

3. Clinically dead Individuals who encounter people in heaven who tell themthings they wouldn't have any knowledge of.

Al Sullivan was a 55 year old truck driver who was undergoing triple by-pass surgery when he had a powerful NDE that included an encounter with his deceased mother and
brother-in-law, who told Al to go back to his to tell one of his neighbors that their son with lymphoma will be OK.
Furthermore, during the NDE, Al accurately noticed that the surgeon operating on him was flapping his arms in an unusual fashion, with his hands
in his armpits. When he came back to his body after the surgery was over, the surgeon was startled that Al could describe his own arm flapping, which was his idiosyncratic method of keeping his hands sterile.

Author Maggie Callanan in her Final Gifts book,wrote about an elderly Chinese woman who had an NDE in which she saw her deceased husband and her sister. She was puzzled since her sister wasn't dead, or so she thought. In actuality, her family had hid her sister's recent death from her for fear of upsetting her already fragile health.

There are testimonies of people seeing family members or friends in heaven they did not knew existed, such as abortions, or dead relatives only to later be confirmed.

If we regard experiencers' perceptions of dead relatives as just imaginary "wishful
how can we explain their accurate description of relatives previously unknown to them, yet later verified by living relatives and by civil documents?

Curtis Kelley was shown his dad beating his mom while she was pregnant (with him) by God in heaven, and a Russian doctor who was dead for three days had a remarkable testimony of things shown to him in the afterlife that later were proven accurate. One man relayed a message to a daughter whose mother passed away during a fight. The daughter was so depressed over not being able to be forgiven. The mother asked to relay the message for her daughter to get on with her life, as she was forgiven. This man was not related to the mother and daughter, but a mere acquaintance. Remarkable stories are credible evidence that the afterlife exists.

4. Individuals who were born blind suddenly see accurate events during a Near Death Experience.

Dr Kenneth Ring and Sharon Cooper completed a two-year study into the NDEs of the blind, and published their findings "Mindsight" which documents solid evidence of 31 cases in which blind people report visually accurate information obtained during an NDE.

Vicki Umipeg was born blind, as her optic nerve was completely destroyed at birth. Her NDE showed that she saw accurate descriptions that were verified as true.

5. Individuals experiencing a NDE and were clinically dead appeared in spirit and later confirmed.

Dr Melvin Morse testifies to a patient named Olga Gearhardt who underwent a
heart transplant. The transplant was a success, but at exactly 2:15 am, her new
heart stopped beating and it took a frantic transplant team three hours to revive her. The interesting part of the story was her family awaited at the hospital during the surgery, except for her son-in-law, who stayed home.
Her family was only told in the morning that her operation was a success, without other details. When they called her son-in-law with the good news, he said that exactly 2:15 am, while he was sleeping, he awoke to see his Olga, his mother-in-law, at the foot of his bed. Olga told him to tell his wife that she was going to be ok. He wrote down the message, and the time of day and then fell asleep. When Olga regained consciousness. Her first words were "did you get the message?" She was able to confirm that she left her body during her near-death experience and was able to travel to her son-in-law to communicate to him the message.

6. Some of the Most unique Near Death Experiences involve Group Near Death Experiences.

A rare type of NDE is called the "group near death experience" where a whole group of people have a NDE at the same time and location. In 1996, NDE researcher Arvin Gibson interviewed a fire-fighter named Jake who had a most unusual NDE while working with other fire-fighters in a forest. His Near Death experience happened at the exact same time as several of his other co-workers were also experiencing a NDE. During their NDEs, they actually met each other and saw each other above their lifeless bodies. All survived and they verified with each other afterwards that the experience actually happened.

Other Considerations

A: Near Death Experiences are not a result of the publics conditioning to near Death Experiences.

Today the term " go towards the light" is a widely recognizedreferral to death experiences. Many people have claimed that these experiences are just another overall conditioning of the public which there for gives the brain ample evidence to reproduce that thought. This theory does not work for many reasons. P.M.H. Atwater, a NDE researcher has found that Abraham Lincoln, Mozart, Albert Einstein, Queen Elizabeth I, Edward de Vere, Winston Churchill, Black Elk, Walter Russell, and several others had NDE before they were widely recognized.

B: Experiences of NDEs are profoundly changed in ways that cannot occur from hallucinations and dreams.

Great examples of this are Atheists such as Howard Storm, and others who were hard core Atheists before their NDE, and after their experiences often peruse God, such as Howard Storm who presumed full time ministry. Alcoholics suddenly drop their addictions over night, and hardened criminals have a 180 degree life change. These profound life changes do not occur over night, and at best do not occur over several weeks of therapy for cases of addictions.

If the spiritual component of the near-death experience could be explained away as just an extension of the person's pre-existing belief system, why have confirmed atheists come back after their NDE convinced there is a God? And why have religious believers returned from their NDE with un-orthodox changes to their prior dogmas?

C. Complete Understanding of Complex Questions.

In many Near death experiences, one common theme that surfaces in Near Death Experiences is a person experiencing sudden and complete understanding when they are in the presence of God. In this interview with Howard Storm, it is hard to understand that he died a hard core Atheist and came back with a theological understanding such as a practicing minister with 40 years under his belt. This complete understanding is seen when people often ask questions of God on complex issues such as space, creation and so forth. Often people have stated to experience a lack of talking, but rather a dialogue that was spiritual in nature. Simply, they thought of the question, and Jesus answered it in their heads such as 23 minutes in Heaven's Bill Wiece.

In our present tense, we understand that the world revolves around time, being
born, aging and dying
. When people experience the afterlife it is a common
testimony that they suddenly understand the whole scope and meaning of eternity. Take for example Howard Storms admission that he was gone just a few moments, but describes laying in hell for a matter of months before being
God is not limited by time as we are. With Him one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day (1 Tim. 1:17; cf. 2 Pet. 3:8), so Howard Storms time perception in Hell would line up with the biblical references of
Time in eternity.

D. An Understanding of Sin.

Those that saw themselves in Hell knew exactly where they belong, and in their
mind, there was no question why they were put there.
In fact, Christ talked about this Himself in Mathew 25. Jesus also said that if Satan cast out Satan, how would his kingdom stand? (Mathew 12:26) Meaning, why would Satan show people that there is a Hell, that would work against his kingdom and his lies. No, impossible. As an angel of light, Satan can deceive many. But this variation that they see in Hell, whether it is total darkness or whether it is fire, both are places where they never want to visit again. Linda story of going to Hell, where she realizes she has no hope in Hell. Listen to what Satan tells her in her testimony.
