Have you ever seen that movie Heaven Is For Real? What about Miracles from Heaven? Both movies are about Children that had near death experiences and visited Heaven.
I have seen both and both made me cry. I know that Hollywood takes real life stories and adds their own little twist but there was a scene from Heaven Is For Real that really bothered me. The scene that took place in the church.
If you don’t know what I’m am referring to it is when the church gathered together to hear the story of what had happened. It has been a while since I seen the movie but I think the little boys dad was the Pastor.
Anyway there were members of the church that was in disbelief. They had pretty much called the young boy a liar saying he never went to Heaven.
This bothered me for a couple of reasons. As Christians we are so quick to judge someone if they experienced something that we didn’t. I’m not sure if it is a jealousy issue or a feeling of abandonment by God.
Why would God let them see Heaven and not me? Or why did he get to come back? These are just some of the thoughts I am sure was going through their mind.
Why else would you not believe that boy went to Heaven? He died and came back. Doesn’t our God perform miracles? He did throughout the Bible. Why not now?
I just don’t understand why it is so hard for Christians to see the miracles going on around us on a daily basis. It is like they are in a “shhh” state of mind when someone tries to talk about miracles.
Miracles have literally become taboo in the Christian world.
God Isn’t Dead And Hell Is Still A Place
I hate to say this but a part of me feels like we have become conformed to this world. You can’t turn the TV on without seeing a woman kissing another woman or man kissing another man.
In all honesty we can’t say much about it because it isn’t like we did anything to stop it. The LGBT did something though. They marched and marched until they got what they wanted.
All while Christians sat back and did nothing but whimpered “What is this world coming to?” in our living rooms watching the news.
I can’t help but feel that we as Christians are letting God down. In a way we treat Him like He is dead.
Most Christians only believe parts of the Bible.
Other Christians are bitter and refuse to forgive.
Can’t forget about the Sunday Christians that go to church on Sunday and do what they please the other 6 days.
And then there are the Christians that side eye you when you speak about miracles, heaven, and even hell.
Heaven is for real and so isn’t Hell. Miracles aren’t dead and neither is God.
A Hell Of An Experience
You always hear stories of how people either died or nearly died and had heavenly experiences. But you almost rarely hear of Hell experiences.
Is this because people are ashamed of what others might think? After all look how people who had Heavenly experiences are treated. Can you even imagine what the reaction would be if someone said they visited Hell?
Well……. in 2009, February 5th to be exact, I almost died and I believe with all my heart I was on my way to Hell.
I was in labor going on 26 hours when my doctor decided an emergency c-section was best. For two weeks leading up to my initial inducement I felt uneasy. I had this feeling that I was going to die.
I was so scared leading up to the inducement that I told my mother-n-law at the time that I was scared and something didn’t feel right.
As they came to prepare me for surgery my doctor asked if I had any questions. Turns out I did. Just one.
What are the chances of dying?
One percent chance she assured me. Moments after my son was cut from my uterus and I was stapled shut I began to hemorrhage.
I lost seven liters (that is NOT an exaggeration) of blood and was in and out of consciousness before I blacked out completely and woke up in ICU two days later.
During the time I was in and out consciousness I could hear the doctor and nurses but I couldn’t respond. It was like I wasn’t even in my own body.
As the voices of the doctors and nurses fainted into the distance so didn’t I.
It was so dark I can’t even begin to explain the thickness of the dark. I remember putting my hands up to feel for a wall. Any wall. But there was nothing. Just a thick black darkness.
Suddenly one of the nurses called my name and it was like I snapped out of the reality I was in in an instance. I must have been still feeling for a wall because one of the nurses raised her voice to get me to hold my hand still so she could get the gauge in.
I believe to this very day that was Hell I was experiencing.
Nor did I see bright lights and I definitely didn’t visit Heaven.
Whether you believe my story or not is up to you. Just as it is up to you to believe the others. Either way just know that Heaven is for real and so isn’t Hell. God isn’t dead and miracles happen everyday! I know I am one.
