Paulo's Experience

EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION:

At the time of my experience, I was suffering of a very high fever and had a lot of pain in my body. I asked God that before I sleep, if he is real to please take my life. Suddenly, when I was asleep, I found myself in the middle of a dark place.  When I looked up, I saw two angels coming down to me. They said, 'Come with us.'  They took my hand and we went up through a tunnel.  I saw a very bright light at the end but my eyes were not damaged and I didn't feel scared. While we were travelling in the tunnel, I heard music, like singing, in a very sweet tone. I felt they were celebrating, so I didn't feel any danger.  I felt this place was very peaceful and full of love. While I get nearer to the bright light, it reflected pure love from a father sitting on a throne. I am not able to see his face because of the white light, just the silhouette of his body sitting down. He said to me, 'Son it's not yet your time, go back.  You have a missionary to do.' l didn't really want to go or leave that place. Then I woke up and my fever was gone. I know it's not a dream and until now everything is very real and fresh in my memories!
