    • Question: "What does the Bible say about near death experiences?"

      Answer: There is no specific scriptural support for near-death experiences. Many people use 2 Corinthians 12:2-5 as a biblical proof text of near-death experiences. However, this is taking great liberty with interpretation and makes the assumption that Paul had actually died when he found himself in heaven. The passage nowhere states that Paul had died. It was a vision that God gave Paul of heaven, not a near-death experience.

      We need to be extremely careful in how we validate our experiences. The most important test of any experience is comparing it with the Bible. Satan is always ready to cause deception and twist people's thinking. "But I am not surprised! Even Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder his servants can also do it by pretending to be godly ministers. In the end they will get every bit of punishment their wicked deeds deserve" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). Because the Bible is silent regarding near-death experiences, and scientific research has not been able to be performed reliably, we simply cannot accept the legitimacy of near death experiences on their face value. It would be too strong to state that all near-death experiences are faked, imagined, or Satanic, but there are still serious concerns, biblically, about the validity of near-death experiences. https://www.gotquestions.org/near-death-experiences.html
    • I fully agree. From what I read, he seems to be a genuine Christian. And none of us can sit in judgment over someone else's experience (no matter how bizarre it may sound). We could say that the apostle Paul had a near-death experience as revealed in 2 Corinthians. Daniel is another one that comes to mind.
    • Shalom, Marcus. No, of course, we don't. I don't believe we go ANYWHERE after we die; we "lie asleep" and "await" the Resurrection. We cease to be a "soul," an "air-breather." Our hope is in the promise of God that He will resurrect us, changing us into a body fashioned like unto HIS glowing body! That's why "glorious" is better pronounced "GLOW-rious," and that realization came from the wife of our music director when I was still in Baptist circles. Philippians 3:20-21
      20 For our conversation (community; citizenship) is in heaven (the sky); from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (the Master, or "Meister," if you prefer, Yeshua` the Messiah):
      21 Who shall change our vile (depressed) body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
      KJV After the Resurrection, we live and reign with Him here on this earth! (Revelation 20:4-6) We shall literally "have ... authority over ten cities (towns)," etc. (Luke 19:16-19) Whether that be in Israel, a tributary nation to Israel, or our own home country, we shall have a job to do within His Kingdom. 1 Corinthians 6:1-3
      1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
      2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
      3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels (messengers)? how much more things that pertain to this life?
      KJV A THOUSAND YEARS is a VERY long time! MUCH longer than a mere 7 years! And, yet, have you ever noticed how little is said about that time period in most charts? It's even abbreviated in various ways on time lines! After the Millennium (which is more about haSatan being locked up in the abyss than the length of the Messiah's Kingdom, which is forever and ever), the Great White Throne Judgment takes place and Yeshua` the Melekh (Hebrew for "King") judges the world and defeats death permanently. Then, He hands the world empire over to His Father, and He goes on to be Israel's Melekh forever! It shall be at THAT time that the New Jerusalem, containing the Paradise or Park of God, lands upon the New Earth with its New Sky! It's not until THEN that we read, Revelation 21:3-4
      3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven (the sky) saying, Behold, the tabernacle (tent) of God is with men, and he will dwell (tent; camp) with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
      4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
      KJV

      If you just read the first part of this verse, it would immediately sound an alarm indicating arrogance: "I can do all things." This was the spirit that attempted to build the tower of Babel. This was the downfall of men like Saul or the Egyptian Pharaoh. Many today infected by humanism and without any trust in God - make the same claim: "I can do all things."
      But the next two words in the verse take this out of the context of arrogance altogether: "through Christ." It is not a boast of self: "I can do all things." It is, I can do all things through Christ! There is a huge difference. It is one thing for someone to say, "I can do all things." It is quite different to confess, "I can do all things through Christ."
      To get the impact of this, stop and think about what you couldn't do without Him! You could not effectively and thoroughly know your lost condition. Without Him, you could not have adequate concepts of God. Without Him, you could realize no victory over sin. Without Him, we would all be a victim of the wrath to come. Jesus said to His disciples "without Me you can do nothing," (Jno. 15:5). In Ephesians 2:12 teaches outside of Christ, we have "no hope" and we are "without God in the world." 
      So with Christ through Him; in our relationship of active faith in Him we have strength we could not have any other way! Strength to adequately evaluate ourselves. Strength to know the difference between right and wrong (by faithfully applying His Word). Strength that comes through the remission of our sins. Strength in response to prayer we offer to God through Him. Strength of character as we follow His example and obey Him. This is strength in such abundance, we are able to do everything God wants us to do. "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."
      "Of the strength which Christ can impart, Paul had had abundant experience; and now his whole reliance was there. It was not in any native ability which he had; not in any vigor of body or of mind; not in any power which there was in his own resolutions; it was in the strength that he derived from the Redeemer.

      I had a rough few days and this beautiful scripture just came to mind:
      "I myself will prepare your way, leveling mountains and hills. I will break down bronze, gates and smash their iron bars. I will give you treasures from dark, secret places"
      -Isaiah 45:2

      so my soul longeth after thee
      You alone are my hearts desire
      and I long to worship  thee
      You are my strenght, my shield
      to You alone may my spirit yield
      You alone are my hearts desire
      And I long to worship thee....
