The common thread that binds us together as human beings regardless of ethnicity, religion, or geographical location is the mere knowledge that we are mortal. As far as we know, humans are the only species on earth that can actually contemplate their eventual end. Most of us have wondered what happens to us when we take that last breath of life. Therefore, that question has caused many books to be written about near death experiences, but they have all been merely ‘near death’ experiences. These reports have given us glimpses to the other side of the veil, but never in modern times in our western culture has someone returned from death to give us a personal message from God Himself...UNTIL NOW!
This is a true story about a loving, protective brother that returned from the dead to warn his sister about the consequences that were awaiting her if she did not accept God's forgiveness for her sins and accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior just as they had been taught as children. There are those that will immediately grasp the magnitude and meaning of this experience and then there will be the doubters who could never fathom such a thing happening to them or anyone they know. Messages from God and dreams of Jesus are more common place in eastern cultures where they are not so influenced by our western bias towards logic. Some theologians suspect that only those far removed from God ever have such experiences.
“He was coming toward me escorted on each side by two figures that were holding his arms as if to give him support. They were not walking, but floating. The two figures assisting him looked somewhat like people without any distinguishable features at all.
They were much smaller than my brother who was six feet tall, so I assumed that they were females. I jumped out of bed and went to greet him. As he moved closer to me, the two figures just melted into the darkness of my bedroom, and Jimmy was left standing there alone in front of me. I knew I wasn’t dreaming. I was completely awake and standing in front of him!
“I was so happy to see him, but I could not stop the gush of tears that were streaming down my face. Somehow, I knew not to touch him even though I wanted to hug him so badly. I just stood there face to face with him and immediately started firing questions at him. I asked, ‘How was your journey?’”
He spent an entire hour with his sister answering many questions such as, ‘Have you seen God, what does he look like, why are you here, who sent you back here?’ These questions and more were answered by the deceased brother. He also shared a very controversial statement that just might set the religious community on its head, but nonetheless, the sister shares this bit of information for anyone that is ready and able to accept it.
“I have no logical explanation for why or how this happened. I only know that God gave me a miracle that has forever changed how I look at life and death, and it has dramatically altered the course my life has taken.”
This painful story shares the grief of losing a loved one, memories of happier times, and the difficulty of coming face to face with some very disturbing confessions made by the dying sibling. The sister, left behind, grapples with all those confessions as she makes her journey back to God sharing with the reader each painful step on her journey.
