Josh R's Experience

Experience description:   

As night time came I knew it was around eleven o'clock, and I had a candle burning, I started praying with a emblem of Jesus in my hand, and my girlfriend was praying with me then she started holding my hand, as I almost finish praying, the candlelight flare up about a inch and everything became so peaceful, I will my life over to God, with the peaceful feeling I became tired, but I would not lay my head back, because when I did I could almost pass out.  I sat there holding my head up while I started falling asleep.  I got this tingling feeling rushing up my body with a faded tingling going into a numb feeling with my heart speeding up and my ears going deaf.  Then I heard this loud  bang noise. 

I started dreaming about flying over a tan color city, or kingdom, next thing I was by a little patio with a couple of steps with people and Jesus, once I walk on the patio, I knew somehow god had accepted me, I was going up in a birdcage rounded oval with a flat bottom, but I felt warmness cotton like softness beneath the back of my body and I also felt my body lifting and lifting in such a smooth fast very fast way, then I open my eyes, from my dreams to realize I'm in heaven. I was way up in the sky and looking down and I seen two people walking side by side holding hands walking up to some stairs that led to three big tan doors but I kept looking upwards and saw a beautiful kingdom with a really neat looking hexagon shape building in the center of the kingdom over looking thee glass like structures that were reflecting bright light and I look up straight ahead of me and seen the most beautiful giant light with a pillars on each side of God but as soon as I seen the light-God.  Boom I was back in my body.

My door was opening with my twin brother walking in for a second, just to see what I was doing. I also noticed my head was laying back on the chair part, so I took a shower feeling great about the experience that I had, but yet wishing I would of stay.   my pain was half of what is was, and now when I pray or get sick my hands get warm, and hot, and I have relieved peoples, kids of their pain and one elderly lady. This afterlife experience has change me for the better.
