Encounter with the Light!

This a repeat of a blog I have posted before on my site, but this experience was so dramatic I feel I should share it once again. I know I will never forget it.

For years now, I guess about 7 or 8, I have been wanting to talk about, tell, something that happened to me one night. I have only told family members about it since I’m not very good at standing up and talking in front of people or telling things to people. I guess I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.

I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and completely closes your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you. I do not think I could sleep with one of the breathing machines they use so I sleep with the head of my bed raised and try to stay on my sides.

However, one night I went to sleep and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly, fully awake and conscious, and was in a different place.

I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.

Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.

To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was an intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.

It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.

When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me?”

I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.

I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.

I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you profoundly, passionately and completely. God Bless You.

Heaven –not a Location

Heaven – Not a Location
(A Someone)

Written in holy lines
Inside an ancient guide
Are words that tell,
Almost sigh
Of another place
Heaven

For all who follow Christ
Loyally
We are most assuredly promised
Joyfully
Of this certain reward

For after death
All will exist on a different
Level
To our carnal senses, I know,
It seems most
Incredible
But it is genuine

However, consider
If not for the presence of
Our Creator/Lord
Heaven would be just
Another place of pain, struggle
Not as is written, 
Our great Reward

To me, heaven is not
A location
But a SOMEONE
GOD
Is the kingdom of heaven
The pearl of great value
So when Christ said
The kingdom of heaven is
At hand or
In your midst
He meant: ‘Here I AM
Heaven walking among you’!!

PRAISE GOD. HE IS EVERYTHING!
LORD OF LORDS & KING OF KINGS!

The Fortress

The Fortress


My fortress is 'YOUR JOY
'
Behind its stone thick walls
I rejoice
Raise hands & feet
To dance 
From You, one loving glance
Incites a mad frenzy of worship

At your feet ancient angels
Take delight
In your power, beauty
Glory 
The endless, eternal 
Story
Unlimited, uncountable
Blessings

Flow forth for every man
From your overfilled hands
For those who choose
& refuse
To follow satan’s dark rebellion
In a story of so many tellings
he lost forever Paradise
Lives now only in cruel anger
& lies!

The One

The One
(and only)

In the beginning
the One
Created from nothing
All of this something
Father, Spirit & the Son
Worked in perfect harmony
So all of their creation 
Could witness their unity

A part of that One
To earth was sent
With only the best intent
To save a beloved child
From the darkest designs
Of an enemy most vile

In the name of our Christ
Diseases were healed,
Demons were routed
Death was defeated
The Dead were raised
All to the glorious praise
Of His Holy Name

It is today still
That wonderful Name
& thru His gracious Will
In terror all demons run
When the Name is said
Of that precious One,
Jesus of Nazareth

Only the name of 
That precious One
Has ever made all
my own demons run
I spoke it into the dark
Sincerely from my heart
In a heartbeat, they fled
Away from the side of my bed

Man has always been
too weak & on our own
We will never defeat,
Never meant to try
To survive all alone
Under a dark satan’s
Destructive, vicious blows

Only is that One Name
Been made all powerful
To totally destroy
satan’s darkness
So let us in faith joyfully sing
As out loud our praises ring
The name of our Christ,
Our eternity’s King



New Eden




New Eden


With a trumpet’s blast
Angelic wings will beat
To agitate, despoil the air 
Their voices shout
It will come about
With lightning’s speed

This new Eden 
Glorious, magnificent
Will descend
The old order will 
Completely end
New heavens, new earth,
A new Jerusalem

My feet will trod
Upon a newborn sod
New city with streets
Of fine-spun gold
No more will man
To sin be sold
On street corners so cheaply

Everything seen now
Is only shadow, temporary
Probably,
Out of necessity

All man’s creations
Will be done away with
So God’s New Earth, 
New Heavens 
At last may begin

Joy, peace, love
Of these things 
There will be no end
Eternal God will reign

Death, tears, pain
Will all be gone
Praise to God, Christ
Will be forever’s song

So do not miss 
Reunion with
Your Creator
Do not deny 
His Touch,
His infinity’s kiss
Take His hand now
So you and I may stay,
Live in Glory’s new day,
Together, Forever!!



Eden(save it or lose it)

Eden
(save it or lose it)

Clouds swirl
The ethers twirl
in moving thick clouds
obscuring regions below
until at last pierced
by sun’s arrows to show

Eden,
perfection’s newest glow
a paradise’s home
Man never meant to roam
lives in perfect peace
with all

Until he turns his back
on his Lord’s call,
his name, creation & life
And through that one act
brings forth pain, death & strife

for the first time darkness
permeates the garden

but wait, wait
there comes a second call
to revive us from 
the blackest pit of 
our slippery, plunging fall
Jesus Christ, that light
on the cross a perfect lamb
sent, holds out a hand
to save every woman, every man

we must play our part
let him have our complete heart
to generate a new start
for ourselves and this planet’s life
we all have our own part
to play if in our own days
we want to help receate Utopia
our very selves to save
& rejoin ourselves back to God

It is Your choice
never will be forced
Live totally for & with God
or
Be swallowed by the darkness
where never will you rest
You will be enslaved, forced into
that violent machine, that dark team
Of satan’s demolition service
and help shred Utopia into pieces
