Bryce A's Experience
On August 29 2004 I was watching a video that explained the creation of this world that combated evolution, it answered all of my questions about this topic and it caused me to believe in the bible, which I never believed in before. when the man I the video did an invitation to accept Jesus in my life as my savior. I followed along. I prayed the prayer of salvation. I asked Jesus to come into my heart I asked his forgiveness, I admitted I was a sinner.
I had a vision that I was covered in wire it was in me and on the outside of me,
no skin was showing it was all wire, these wires led up to a semi truck made of
wire fully loaded with wire and I had to bear it, which I could not. I realized
that this was my sin. I felt the hopelessness of it. all of a sudden the wires
just fell through me and I was free of every hurt or sorrow in my life. then I
saw a whirlwind made of blue whirl into me. I realize now that it implanted the
incorruptible seed of the lord into me. all of a sudden I was being lifted up
toward the sky, and I saw clouds. they opened to golden gates. there were
trumpets blasting and angelic singing of joy. the gates opened for me and I knew
that this was heaven. everything was made of light. all of a sudden I was on a
open space of light. I was being ushered toward a door by an invisible force
that I could only tell you that loved me beyond any love I have ever felt my
entire life before or after this event. we went to the door and it opened for
me. all of a sudden I entered and I saw a candlestick and a book on a pedestal.
the candlestick lit up when I entered the room. and my name started to be
entered into this book, I couldn't tell you how I knew, but I knew it was the
lambs book of life. after that was done all I can remember is going to the open
area where I saw pillars of light, almost like marble but light because
everything was made of light, and I talked with people that were there. many
distant family members, and they were over joyed that I had taken this step of
faith. I talked with them for what seemed to be an eternity. but then the angels
told me it was time to go because I still had a body on earth. I said goodbye
until I come back. and I departed I was falling from the sky I saw my friend
Todd's house where I was, I fell into it, then I saw myself sitting in the chair
in front of the TV. and I fell into my body and I felt joy beyond joy that I've
ever felt in my life. I turned to my friends that were watching the video with
me and my friend Todd asked me 'What the hell did you just do?' I just smiled. I
started going to a bible believing church and I've been a Christian ever since.
and that's my testimony. I feel like I was outside of time when I was there.
