    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Make this Heaven Crap Quick, We gotta Have the Guy that saw Ghosts in his Trailer & The Fake Vietnam Veteran To bring out in 8 minutes

    NOTE: "The Place" IF prepared for You, is NOT in HEAVEN but instead, is in "The HOUSE of GOD" !
    From "The Gospel [[ ACCORDING TO ]] John", chapter 14, verses 1 to 4, Quote 1. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me… NOTE: JESUS is saying Believe in Him, as well as GOD ! 2. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. End Quote…

    I experienced the long hallway and the bright white light at the end becoming me to come closer. When the light glowed on me I felt the most wonderful feeling of love and calm..I was not afraid of dying at that moment. I was in icu at ucsf waiting for a liver organ to transplant into me. Thank God one came available: 10/23/2014. I am here today because God has a plan for me. Amen

    My grandma passed and came back. She was in ICU for awhile after. During her recovery, she told me she was in a garden so beautiful, beautiful music, waterfall. She seen someone, but couldn't see him properly – she knew it was her dad. A place so beautiful. Now she is 90 years old.

    Jesus said 'I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No-one can come to God the Father unless they come through me'. So simple…and all are welcome.

  7. #7

    It would have been better if Oprah had just let her speak without constant interruption.

  8. #8

    Jesus must be in every real story of life after death.

  9. #9

    I’ll grant that these after death experiences may have seemed real to the one who experienced the delusion, but what is extraordinary is the number of people who believe this to be real. It’s mass insanity, superstition, and a desperate hope to live eternally.

  10. #10

    Hopefully I will see my Mother again…she is terribly missed

  11. #11

    I was pronounced "DEAD On ARRIVAL" at a medical center, in 1973… More than half an hour passed, then my heart started beating again… During that time, I "LIFE The Real Self", entered the WHITE LIGHT, and have remained in the WHITE LIGHT to this day… I have NOT left the WHITE LIGHT, nor returned, as others have reported to have ! Those who claim to have returned, have NOT recognize WHAT, The WHITE LIGHT really is… When we recognize WHAT the LIGHT actually is, and accept it, we remain in The LIGHT…

  12. #12

    Well, there are accounts of some 500 people who claim to have seen Jesus after he was crucified and dead. Many said he was resurrected. So we know he was the first to resurrected.
    Similarly there are many people around the world who claim to have seen the light and their loved ones after been dead for a minute, or in a coma and or near death . I believe in life eternal. It can not be that all of these people are lying about the same thing at different times, places, cultures and languages.

  13. #13

    Had the same expensive but I was not really a good person. What i perceive to be demons came for me they toutured me, that was the is no worse pain than that here on earth. but, thank God the light appeared I perceive that was Christ and gave me a second chance.

    I understand that people may find some sort of comfort from believing that there is life immediately after death, but there is not a single Bible scripture that supports that belief. However, there are well over a hundred scriptures that say we don’t have life immediately after death and that we don’t go anywhere except for the grave when we die. Tradition has long support the belief that we all have an immortal soul inside of us that lives on after death and over the centuries that belief has been adopted by the church, but that doctrine is not supported by the Bible. It is simply not true. It is a false doctrine, from pagan origins. There was a time that I believed in the immortal soul and life immediately after death, until I was challenged to find it in the Bible. So I looked up every scripture that I could find relating to death, the dead, the grave, the soul, the spirit, the resurrection, the last day and anything else that was related to death and life, in both Old and New Testaments (because it is one book, not two). Any you know what happened? I had to change my mind or continue believing erroneous church doctrines that have been passed on from one generation to the next by tradition.

    I extend this challenge to anyone. Cite one scripture that says you have life immediately after death or that you have an immortal soul, and go to Heaven (or hell) when you die. Just one.

    I will show a few that say you don’t. And yes, I am going to use the Old Testament, but also the New Testament for the “I’m a New Testament Christian” folks.

    “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 9:5 & 6

    “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” Ecclesiastes 9:10

    “I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.” Ecclesiastes 3:18-20

    “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!

    If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.” Job 14:7-15

    “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” 1 Corinthians 15:20-26

    “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:50-57

    I believe the brain is just built in a way that you'll never truly lose your conscious, there's still cells. I think once you die and you lose cells it just begins to fade away.
    But meh everyone's gonna experience that

  16. #16

    My brother in law had this experience once by an accident he did saw a white light with his cousin but no one didn't died they all save

  17. #17

    @-3:30 I believe it’s called dual consciousness.

    This woman is confused and deceived. Jesus tells us in John 3:13," No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man." And in 1 Cor 2:9 we are told," Rather, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.”

    What Happen when a Person Die?

    In order to get the correct answer, let us consult
    the infallible word of God. And the safest way to start is to ask the question:

    Q. 1) How did God create or form man?
    A. Genesis 2:7; And God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

    Note: In forming man, God used two substances namely:
    1. Dust of the ground
    2. Breath of life

    Note: Now that we know how God formed man, we can safely answer the above question by reversing the process in which God formed man.
    To illustrate:
    At Creation: Dust of the ground plus breath of life = man or a living soul
    At Death: Living Soul minus breath = Dust

    Q. 2) What happen to these two substances when a person die?
    A. 1.) Ecclesiastes 12:7; Then the dust return to the earth as it was, and the spirit (or breath of life, Genesis 2:7) return to God who gave it.
    A. 2) Job 27:3; All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils.
    A. 3) Genesis 3:19; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat thy bread, till thou return to the ground, for out of it was thou taken, for dust thou art, and unto dust shall thou return.

    Note: The three texts above clearly explained what happen to the two substances that God used in forming man at the time of death. At the same time, they also clearly answer the question. What happen when a person dies? The body return to dust of the ground where it was taken, (Genesis 3:19,)and the spirit or breath of life return to God who gave it. ( Ecclesiastes 12:7)

    The belief that when a person dies, there is a soul (immortal) that leave the body, and depending on how the person lived when alive, will determine where the soul will spend eternity, either in hell, to be punished and tortured for all eternity, in purgatory, with the hope of being brought to heaven or direct to heaven as the case maybe. This belief is contradictory to Ezekiel 18:20; The soul that sinneth, it shall die.
    The truth is, this belief is based on the Greek Philosophy called “Dualism” (pls check dualism in the internet) which teaches that the body and the mind are two separate entity, In that the body is physical while the mind is spiritual and immortal. Here lies this very dangerous belief. Why? Because if the soul is immortal, of course it is not subject to death. That is why, when a sinner die, based on this belief, the soul will go to hell to be tortured and burned forever and ever without end. What kind of punishment is this? Endless. Don’t make sense. It is because the soul is not subject to death, immortal. This is unbiblical.
    To dispel this erroneous belief, simple questions need to be asked.
    1. Would our gracious, loving, merciful and longsuffering God, allow eternal torture and eternal life to co-exist? Of course not, for this will contradict His nature, which is God is love.
    2. What kind of sin does anyone do, to deserve this kind of endless torture?
    There is no such kind of sin, for the Bible says; that the wages of sin is death, not endless torture. (Romans 6:23). According to Galatians 6:7; Whatsoever a man soweth, that he also reap.
    The truth is, God did not create anything or anyone immortal. For had he done this, then sin would be immortalized. The Bible said, that God alone is immortal. 1 Timothy 6:15,16. The reason is obvious, God knows the end from the beginning, Isaiah 46:9,10. Thus, he knew that Adam and Eve would commit sin, Genesis 3:6. and Romans 5:12; For by one man sin enter the world, and death by sin, in the death passed to all men, for all have sinned. The wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)

    Q. When will the person that died and who return to the dust, be made alive again?

    A. 1. John 5:28,29; Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming in the which, all that are in the graves shall hear his voice. And shall come forth, they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life, and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
    2. Daniel 12:2; And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

    Note: The two texts, clearly explained that the dead sleep in the dust and will come to life, when the voice of the Lord is heard at His second coming.

    Q. What event does the Bible say, would take place, when the dead which came forth from the graves/dust, and who have done good?

    A. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; For the Lord himself, shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Note: The event described in the above text, is referring to the second coming of Christ. (John 14:1-3.)

    Q. How about those that have done evil, when will they come to life?

    A. Revelation 20:5; But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

    Note: In conclusion, with this text, the resurrection of all that died and in their graves, (John 5:28,29) from Adam and Eve at the beginning, up to the last person who will die just before Christ second coming, is hereby completed. The reward of them that hath done good, is described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, and in Revelation 20:6; Blessed and holy is he who hath part in the first resurrection, for the second death hath no power. In contrast, the punishment of them that hath done evil is described in Revelation 22:8, and is called the second death.

    I’ve had dreams about my dad but for some reason my mind doesn’t understand that he’s dead in these dreams I only realize he’s dead when I wake up

    I would like to tell you about my own experience:

    I wasn’t near death at all but I was in a very spiritual mode. I closed my eyes and I asked the universe “what are we here for?” Then I saw scary things like what we humans would consider scary. I was terrified of knowing the truth but I was very curious and in the back of my mind I knew I had to fight my fears in order to get my answers and I felt like each time I face a fear I’m stepping up, each time the fear was greater but I knew it’s a lie and that I’m getting closer. When I got there I felt euphoria!!! Big energy of light and love which I became a part of. It was unlike any other feeling we know. Beautiful colors and knowing nothing can hurt me nor bother me. No sense of time or place. I felt like our day to day troubles are all meaningless and that god is much greater than what we know from the biblical story, not even close. I prayed I’ll always remember this feeling when I’m down but it’s hard sometimes. I just lost my best friend and I find comfort in believing she’s there.

    Dear Oprah, you've developed this habit of interrupting which is irritating to say the least. So, stop it,please.

    2022 90% of the ppl have soul their souls to Satan for refusing to think.

    Satan comes as an angel of Light when you die your presence with the Lord

    Abraham said, "Then do you see what you have been worshipping,


    You and your ancient forefathers?


    Indeed, they are enemies to me, except the Lord of the worlds,


    Who created me, and He [it is who] guides me.


    And it is He who feeds me and gives me drink.


    And when I am ill, it is He who cures me


    And who will cause me to die and then bring me to life


    And who I aspire that He will forgive me my sin on the Day of Recompense."


    [And he said], "My Lord, grant me authority and join me with the righteous.


    And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations.


    And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure.


    And forgive my father. Indeed, he has been of those astray.


    And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected –


    The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children


    But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart."

    Great Quran

    one thing i understood from all these after death experiences, clearly happens for a reason, you have choice to choose to be in this world or be with another realm…!

  27. #27

    All about Oprah, constant interrupting.

    I'd like to see an interview with the doctor or surgeon. Just curious what they think.

    For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” Jesus Christ, John 3:16-17

  30. #30

    Keep praying to God and Jesus for protection from the enemy.

  31. #31

    It's a near death…not death ..There is either heaven or hell..We must know Jesus..and have him as our Lord in our lives..Otherwise it's just deception during a NDE…Scripture tells us Satan can transform himself into light..a deception..

    Any all is good..all is well..no need to be saved and have accepted Jesus work on the cross as the only way for salvation..is deception!!

    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27)
    I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. (Isaiah 66:4)
    And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15)
    I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)

    This 'white light' is the common in everybody's testimony. I am a Dental Assistant and my patient had a severe cardiac arrest. He was taken to the hospital in a very critical condition. He told me that he felt like he was falling from CN Tower with an incredible speed and there was white light he was passing through or just saw it. He realized that he was dying. He told me that he said to himself that 'I don't want to die' and the moment he said that he opened his eyes. Goosebumps.

  34. #34

    Yeah! When oprah leaves her body, she going straight to hell

    I do believe all after-death-experiences. It's interesting though because say, like here, the dead person "sees" another dead relative but the relative is old, as they were when they passed away. You would think that any person on the other side would be in their prime of age, right? And similar things like this. God, if he wanted to, could prove His existence irrefutably but He does not. So I think these after-death-experiences are a gift of a dream-like experience with real messages but not physically real. That's why they are all slightly different. If they were are physically real and the same, they would be bordering on irrefutable evidence and God doesn't operate like that. The reason, I believe, a dead relative would appear to someone looking the same as when they died (their age) is because it is at the Resurrection that everybody receives a new body. In the Old Testament Samuel, who had died as an old man, appeared to David, and Samuel appeared as an old man.

  36. #36

    We call it the life between this life and the life after till judgment day till our Lord take the whole universe. Then either you go to he'll or heaven depends on what good deeds you done in this life according to the quran.

  37. #37

    ecclesiastes 9:5 for the living know that they will die but the DEAD know nothing at ALL.

    All copycat stories , where they turn into a flashlight ,, mentally communicate with other flashlights dressed in robes and float around for an eternity with nothing to do .. That would be pure boring hell . I would be hoping for someone to kill me again .. N.D.E.s are your brain fighting to lessen pain and trauma .. Noone has ever came back from the dead and never will , when you die , your body immediately starts to deteriorate . There is no coming back from that .. Impossible
