Did You Hear About This Woman Who Died, Went to Heaven, and Heard God’s Voice?

Peter Guirguis Testimony 31 Comments


Imagine you died and went to heaven…

What would you expect to see?

What would you expect to hear?

The woman in this video that you’re about to watch had a near-death experience.

I’ve seen a bunch of different videos about near-death experiences and people who either claim that they met God or a family member.

To be completely transparent with you, sometimes I believe the person, and sometimes I’m skeptical.

However, I found this video to be intriguing.

So check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Here’s what you’ll discover in the video:

  • What were the events that led to this woman to die for a few minutes and then come back to life
  • Why did this woman see yellow caution tape after she died
  • The surprising perspective that this woman had on her earthly life when she went to heaven
  • What’s the one thing that God said to this woman that made her change the way she lives now

 

When you expand the description section of this video on YouTube, you’ll see the author’s remarks about the five reasons he or she believe why Christianity is true.

All of them are things that I have written about on this blog before. Except for reason #3 which I found intriguing.

Here, I’ve copied and pasted it below so you can check it out:

“Near death experiences prove Christianity!

“We find testimonies of former atheists, Buddhists, Muslims, etc. claiming they died, went to the afterlife but were saved and brought back by Jesus Christ.

READ  This is Why I Stopped Being an Atheist and Started Believing in God

“There are countless testimonies just on YouTube alone and the people that ventured into the afterlife describe the Christian concept of life after death (heaven & hell).

“If NDE’s were open to interpretation, we would find testimonies of people saying that when they died, they met Allah or Muhammad or Buddha.

“But since we only find testimonies of people saying they were saved by Jesus, we have additional evidence that Christianity is the truth.

“When Muslims die, they don’t hallucinate about Allah and when Hindus die, they don’t hallucinate about reincarnation.

“What we see is the truth of Christianity being preached by those that died and came back.”

So what do you think about this reason? Do you agree or disagree?

The only true faith is faith in Jesus Christ

  1. Hey Peter,

    Of course I don’t find this even remotely convincing much less falsifiable in any possible way…….. but I’m commenting so I can see how others respond. Thanks!

    1. Well, you’re right, one good NDE story isn’t really proof of anything. Certainly not in the way you mean. If you’re looking for proof of the truth of the Gospels that follows the rules of evidence, you won’t do better than J. Warner Wallace’s “Cold Case Christianity”. It’s written by a detective, specifically a cold case detective and he explains in exasperating detail why the Gospels are true in a falsifiable rational scientific way. I do think stories like this have value though. Not everyone connects with reason and logic, sometimes a personal experience can better convey the truth.

      1. Richard –

        Thanks for the reply. I have heard of “Cold Case Christianity” and admit I haven’t read. I have leafed through reviews from both non-Christians and Christians and find them amusing. It doesn’t seem to settle the debate. Guess I’ll need to read it for myself.

        I do have one thought/question before I dig into the book…… If an all powerful being’s message in the Bible is the single most important thing we humans need to know in this lifetime, why would we need a modern day homicide detective skilled in forensics to verify its accuracy? Seems like there should be zero debate over the matter.

        R

        1. R, the book that Richard is recommending offers an atheists perspective on God and the Bible. I have to say, I did read his book and it is pretty unique. You might be able to relate to some of it.

          Additionally, the fact that he is a trained homicide detective also adds to his skepticism. Even if you don’t agree with the book, I think you will be entertained.

    2. I totally understand where you’re coming from, R. I find this topic to be fascinating. Even the response to this video from both Christians and non-Christians has been on several different scales of the spectrum. I have another interesting video that I’m going to be sharing in a couple of weeks so stay tuned.

    1. I think the answer to your question is that after realizing the truth of eternity with God, we would love and care enough for our family and friends to come back to earthly life to make sure that they know the truth also.

  2. There was not one mention of Jesus in the 17+ minutes of this video. It is only in Him and through Him that we are made right with God and prepared for heaven. I am afraid that this video – as good a story as it may appear to be – is not convincing at all and does nothing to introduce someone to the Saviour.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Roger. I have another video that I’m going to be sharing in my next blog post. Please check it out and let me know if you feel the same way about that video once it goes live.

  3. It really does not matter whether one believes the near death experiences or not. The important thing that means everything to an individual is do you believe The Death Experience and Resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and love Him for what He did for us. You see for hard headed people like me God had to have hundreds of prophecies fulfilled to convince us who His Messiah was going to be and with Jesus every single one of them were fulfilled. That is no accident or coincidence. Even Satan and his angels believe Jesus is the Messiah but they don’t love Him. If you are reading this and feel Jesus knocking at the door of your heart. Let Him in and Love Him. He earned your love and devotion. Peace

  4. I believe that God does deal with each of us in different fashions according to our specific individual needs and personalities. The end result is the same for all of us; that we come to know personally our savior Jesus Christ who died and Rose again for the payment of our sin debt that we may Live for eternity in the presents of God through His son Jesus Christ.

    As a Believer at the age of 60 I had an experience with God where He audibly spoke to me. I had been praying for him to fix some things in my marriage. When i did not get the fixes I desired, I asked Him “What do you want from Me”? He said “I Want All Of You”. My answer to Him, after a short pause to consider the cost of my answer, was OK. I am not a perfect Christian yet, but I am allowing God through Jesus Christ my personal savior to lead my life. Thank you

    1. Larry, when you say that you heard God speak to you audibly, do you mean like the kind of voice that you hear in your ear, or the kind of voice that you hear silently in your heart?

      1. Peter, thanks for asking that question, as I sometimes don’t clarify my thoughts enough. I heard Jesus’ voice in my heart. No one else could heard Him as He was speaking to me. Thanks Peter.

  5. I really don’t know where to start! There is so much that is contrary to the Word of God. The Bible says it’s appointed unto man ONCE TO DIE and then the judgment! We don’t DIE, and then tell God I want to go back. She is in error about we deserve to be in someplace good after we die! Heaven is a free gift that isn’t earned or deserved! And that is because the wages of sin is death. This free gift is received by Grace through faith, it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast. God would not tell us to live a good life, or prove how good we are by just doing It! This is the testimony, that God has given us eternal life through Jesus Christ. He who has the Son has eternal life with God in heaven, he who does not have the Son, spends eternity separated from God in the Lake of Fire! There is just so much wrong from a Biblical perspective, that it cannot all be addressed here. Sounds new age

    1. Thanks for your feedback Lincoln. I’m always interested in what you have to say. I’m going to be posting another video of another person but it has an interesting twist. I’d be interested to see if you feel the same way about that guy’s experience like you do here. So stay tuned.

      Love you, bro 🙂

  6. In the true story of the rich man and Lazarus, Jezus himself warnes us that people raising from the dead will not convince people to believe in God. Why attention to those stories?

      Personally, Geeske, I find them fascinating. I don’t believe that all of them are true. But it is possible that some of them are real.

      Additionally, while Jesus does say that a person who is not born again will not believe somebody who comes back from the dead, it is possible that it can plant the gospel seed in that person’s life and that will be a stepping stone for salvation in the future. At least that’s my opinion.

  7. I agree with you, R–if “where will you go when you die?” is really the most important question in the universe, and the only 2 answers really are heaven or hell, the omnibenevolent, omnipotent, omniscient God allegedly presented in the Bible really should have been communicating better all along, not encouraging 8 or 9 billion people to make up their own versions and stamp them as TRUTH, then leaving it to a cold case detective to get the real deal and sort it all out for everyone.

    Conversing with a 5-point Calvinist, or TULIP Christian, I learned that they are the ones who know the real deal:
    Total depravity
    Unconditional election
    Limited atonement
    Irresistible grace
    Perseverance of the saints

    So the truth according to what I understand a Calvinist’s understanding of the truth to be, is that “election” is God picking who (of the billions of totally depraved people he created) he will save by his grace, and “evangelism” is God’s way of telling the elect that he elected them…and the rest go to hell!

    Looking forward to continuing the convo…I’m on Twitter as @WiserThanIWasB4

      So Sandra, would you say that your point of you currently is an atheistic point of view, or is it more of an agnostic perspective but you just reject the Christian version of God?

      1. Hi Peter. I freely admit I don’t know everything, and have certainly been wrong about a lot of things, so I prefer agnostic, as it conveys less certainty than atheist. There are many who draw finer distinctions, and there are anti-theists who go further still, to actively denounce religion, but I’m simply a nonbeliever. I’m very glad for the friends and experiences I had as a Christian military wife raising 5 children, and don’t know how life would’ve been without Protestant Women of the Chapel to plug into at every new duty station. I’m no longer a woman who rehearses verses, however, or prays that somebody will do something about all those poor people headed for hell.

  8. I have no reason to think that this is false testimony.
    At first I thought, was she a Christian? … hmmm.
    But I’m not her judge… God is and if God wanted to give her another chance , then that up to Him.
    She came back as a believer … and that is good news. She is now serving God, that too is good news.
    She is looking forward to going back … that’s good news.
    However she did come back from a near death experience and she is not the same person.
    My prayer is that she has asked Jesus into her life and repented of her sins.

  9. Sure Peter–I’m always happy to chat, and still seeking answers. Four years ago, I believed I was inspired to publish an evangelical children’s book with a Creation vs Evolution theme. I sang hymns and contemporary songs and rehearsed verses and pleasant platitudes on being open to God and acting on faith and letting God direct my steps and the urgent need to train up a child, and delayed obedience being disobedience…I spent a huge fortune on publishing and marketing and had NO sales, despite sending thousands of postcards and many free copies of my “inspired” book, NO response from God to my desperate pleas for guidance. Meanwhile I got on Twitter to promote my book to Young Earth Creationists and was challenged to defend my faith in YEC, in the Bible, in Jesus, heaven and hell. I presented what turned out to be only arguments from incredulity, verse citations, and circular reasoning from Answers in Genesis. My faith failed, thousands of unsold books still sit in my garage, I’m still working to pay off my debt, and I still have no meaningful responses to legitimate questions. I also still wonder how this amazing poem could be my own idea…for the illustrations and other poems from my book, find me on Twitter @WiserThanIWasB4.

    God is the Creator, he made it all;
    Our sin has separated us since Adam’s fall.
    Sin cancellation requires a price–
    Payment was made by Jesus Christ.
    Everlasting life he gives to all who believe:
    Love, peace and forgiveness are yours to receive!

    1. I’m a BIG fan of Sandra’s testimony. It’s funny when religious people assume that every atheist had a tragedy happen in their life, got mad at God and as a result lost faith and left religion. What I’ve seen typically happen is that like Sandra, there come a point in peoples lives where they actually consider critically what they believe and why. Once you figure out that “faith” can be used to justify ANY thing you’d like to believe in, religious claims and promises become very hollow.
