Jesus Christ didn’t need a near-death experience. He was in constant touch with eternity — knew exactly what it was like, for He had been with the Father since before the beginning of the reality of earth. But for us mortals? Such experiences, first logged by Pope Gregory the Great, can be at once uplifting, informative, and sobering. Below several video clips. The two bestselling books we have, The Other Side and What You Take To Heaven, are based, in part, on such claimed experiences, offered as always for consideration, not as anything that replaces the need for Church teaching nor contradicts Bible Truth. Yet we note: when the women went to mourn at Jesus’ Tomb, He wasn’t there; it was empty. So too will it be with out graves: we do not ascend, as He did, but our souls are gone from the body, and joyously so. Many are the messages. One of them: live in the now, the present. For after this life, we are so often told, there is no time. Past, present, and future are all wrapped in the “now.” Fret not about the future; live not in the past.
