David W SOBE



It felt like I had been awakened by a very bad experience and I did not understand what was going on. I felt like I was floating looking down from inside the car ,there was a little boy in the backseat, a woman holding a little baby crying in the passenger seat and a man driving. He was very angry arguing with the woman. The Man then stopped the car and the woman got out with the baby. I noticed it was hot, they were on a dirt road with large trees; a steep bank on one side of the road and a sharp drop off on the other that led to a river. The last thing I remember was looking down on the woman with the crying baby she was holding; she said 'Hush Bo'. Over the years, I learned, the little boy in the back seat was my brother, the man was his Dad the woman my MOM and I was the baby. My Mom was in love and had me by my Dad. My Mom wanted to leave with me and my brother, but she stayed with the man so to keep my brother, my Dad left with the army.

Yes Since I turned fifty , out of body experiences, healing, a person telling me of his coming death, saying I knew the Lord and to pray over his body at his point of death, my heart about blew out of my chest, just incredible. I was to scared to go to him, but I did look in the Apt where he laid. I was the manager, the new tenants couldn't rest, strange going--ons, as though his Spirit was still there, finally after their many complaints: I did go to where I had seen his body lay and I did kneel and pray for him, that Jesus take him reminding the lord of his words.

All could be spent on the poor and the sick. We are free if only we can see!
