On the night of their engagement Judy and Roger had a terrible accident, when an oncoming truck hit their car. After the moment of impact all fell silent. When Roger awoke, he immediately called out, "Judy! Are you okay?" "Yes, I think so!" she answered. They embraced and held each other, thankful to God that they had somehow managed to survive such a horrible accident! They realised that they were naturally dazed and in somewhat of a state of shock, but as they clung to each other they both felt so strange, so different. Besides the relief they felt in finding that the other was allright, they felt incredibly light. "Roger, what's happening to us?, Judy asked."Our feet... they're not even touching the ground!" "I don't know," he answered. "It seems like we're going up! I've never felt like this before... Oh my God! Look back down on the road by my car! Those two bodies, they're us! We must be dead!"
Suddenly, as if some unseen force took hold of them, they were drawn up, higher and higher, until it seemed like they were in some sort of a long tunnel or passageway through wich they were now flying at an incredible speed! Soon a very dim light appeared far ahead of them, and as they flew through the tunnel it grew larger and larger until it became dazzling and brillant! Though it did not hurt their eyes!
As they drew nearer and nearer to this dazzling light, they both realised that it was a Person, a brillant Being of Light! Everything around them was bathed in a brillant warm light and they were both overwhelmed and filled with a great feeling of love and compassion! The fear and apprehension that they had felt when they realised that they had died was now completely gone! They felt so comletely at ease as they enveloped in this warm and loving light, that they'd lost all their desire to return to Earth! They felt so wonderful, so loved!
Suddenly the Being of Light gives both Roger and Judy a detailed review of their entire lives! Although they don't feel that they are actually in this review, they watch it like a full-colour, three-dimensional video and see themselves from the time they were tiny toddlers all the way trough to the time of the accident! All of the selfish things they'd done to their brothers and sisters, unkind and unloving deeds to their schoolmates, every little detail! And all of the good things too! When they had given a toy away, when they had helped and been kind to others ... Everything!
It was as if they were being made their own judges, to clearly see where they failed and where they had succeeded! There was no denying anything, it was all exposed and very fair. And though they reviewed their whole lives right up to the present, scene after scene after scene, when it was over they felt that the entire review had only last a few moments!
Having just vividly seen and recalled all that they'd ever done, they both hesitantly look into the eyes of the Being of Light and are so relieved to find them still warm and loving, full of sympathy and understanding! He then extends a welcoming hand to them and motions toward a distant pyramid-shaped City of Light and says,"Fear not, in my Fathers House are many Mansions, and I have prepared a place for you, that where I am, there you may be also!"
They both realise now that this kind and loving person is Jesus, and that He has come to welcome them Home to Heaven! Although all of their wrongs and mistakes, shortcomings and failures of the past are perfectly known to Him, He still loves them and receives them with open arms! Tears of thankfulness roll down their cheeks as He embraces and comforts them, wiping the tears from their eyes! He lovingly reminds them, "That's why I died for you! Because I loved you! And I took your sins upon Myself so that you won't have to suffer for them! You believed in Me and accepted My sacrifice for you, so your sins are cleansed and forgiven forever! Come now, enter the Kingdom that I have prepared for you!'
And with that He takes them both by the hand and they begin flying again, as they had before in the tunnel! It seems as if they're shooting through space as they near the gigantic golden pyramid that grows bigger and bigger as they approach it! As they enter this beautiful crystal-gold Space City, they are thrilled to meet the reception party that is there to greet them! Roger can hardly believe his ears when a voice he has so terribly missed calls to him from behind, "Welcome Home, son!" He turns to meet his mother, who had died of an illness seven long years earlier! She looks just beautiful now: young, vibrant and radiant with health! The way Roger remembered her when he was just a little boy! They cling to each other and weep for joy, thanking Jesus for this wonderful reunion!
Neither Roger nor Judy had ever imagined that Heaven could be so absolutely beautiful! So wonderful! Everyone is loving and kind, no one is a stranger! The flower-filled gardens and parks, the trees and the grass are much more beautiful than any they'd ever seen on Earth! The Heavenly buildings and exhibtions are of such gigantic size, amazing design and shockingly beautiful colours and materials, they can't even be compared with anything they'd ever seen! Everyone wears shimmering, shining garments of light that lightly drape and reveal their beautiful forms! No one is rushed or hurried. They just seem to float along the golden sidewalks and lush green grass, their feet barely touching the ground. Others actually fly and gracefully glide through the air.
The story of Roger and Judy's Incredible Journey is not just an imaginative fantasy, but is based on the life-after-death experiences of hundreds of actual cases which have been scientifically documented in many authoritative studies and books! Of course, in all such cases, the subjects, some who were clinically dead for 20 to 30 minutes, were revived and came back, testifying that the Being of Light who reviewed their lives gave them the opportunity to return to their bodies! But these are exceptions, as it's obvious that most people do not come back after passing on.
Are you ready for that incredible journey? Be prepared, you'll never know when it'll be your turn to go. Those who decided to return to their earthly bodies must have been very thankful for this second chance at life. They must have had a very good reason to want to come back. Maybe they had something they wanted to finish, something that would change their lives. But they must have gone through a lot of agony, pain and suffering once they returned to ther bodies too. You're alive now. You have the opportunity to change your live and make it worth living now, without having to go through all that pain. Use it! Take some time today to set your goals, get your priorities straight, and start something really worthwhile. If these testimonies of those who've died and come back to life have touched and helped you somehow, they won't have died in vain, and you'll make sure you won't have lived in vain.
