Would you like a guarantee to go to heaven? It's real easy. All you have to do is accept Jesus Christ in your heart as your personal savior. Live your life as close as you could to Jesus when he was on earth. Who ever you come across in life, treat them the same. Whether they are black, white, tall, short or purple, it does not matter. We are all the same in God's eyes. It's what you owe Him. He died on the Cross for everyones' sins. The Old Testament told us to follow the Ten Commandments to have eternity in Heaven but God saw that we sin. Not one of us would ever go to heaven. So God sent his only son, Jesus, to die for us. (In a sense though ), Jesus was God himself. I hope you choose not to take the hard road like I did. Allow me to tell you my testimony that clearly shows the power of Christ!!!
I got married to my wonderful wife in August of 1987. She was a Christian and I was a diehard Catholic. I am not bashing the Catholic religion. But instead of praying to Mary and St. this one or St. that one, "Jesus said no one comes onto the father but through me." She, and other friends of mine that were also Christian would witness to me so much, in wanting to save me, I was sick of it. I did not want to hear it.
Then on November 5th, 1990, it happened. I
was working on a 480 volt motor control center when it blew up in front of me. I was
burned from my waist to the top of my head causing 2nd & 3rd degree burns over 23% of
my Body. I also was blind because I had 3rd degree burns on the corneas in both eyes. I
was rushed to St. Barnabas Burn Center in Livingston NJ. I had paramedics on board the
ambulance injecting me with morphine but when your nerves are exposed to air, even that
did not ease the pain. Once they got me into the emergency room, I went into cardiac
arrest because traumatic shock had set in. It was at that precise moment I was at
total Peace. A type of peace that cannot be explained in any other way but loving.
There is nothing on earth that can compare. I was above clouds. The clouds went as wide as
your peripheral vision can go. As I looked out, the clouds were brighter and brighter with
a real bright but loving light at the other end.
I said "God , No! I have a
family to raise. Right after I said that all the sounds of the ER and the feeling of that
excruciating pain came back. The doctors in the ER had coded me back to life.
The burn surgeons told my wife they were not sure if I would make it through the first 24 hours and if I survived, I would have to under go a series of skin graft operations because there was no skin over the 3rd degree burn areas that can regenerate. The eye surgeon told her that I would need a double cornea transplant to possibly restore 70% of my Vision.
Eight days after the accident, my sight
started to come back. I was able to tell if a light was on or off.
If you look at me you would never imagine
what I had gone through. The burn surgeons and eye surgeon all agreed that there was no
medical reason for the way that I healed They said if I was not going to
church, I had better start. Because they declared these healings as a miracle of
I always believed that when it is your time to go, that's it. There is no coming back. I had wondered why God would allow me to see the entrance to heaven and then return me. I now know. God did not want to disfigure me. It was more like a kick in the butt, saying listen to what your wife and friends are saying. I had to take the Hard road and be shown. "Blessed are the ones that believe with out seeing."
If It Happens in our life time (the
Rapture) those who are saved will hear Gabriel's horn and look up to see
Christ has come back to take us with him just before all hell breaks loose on Earth.
In His Name,
