I have a little experience with this sort of thing. It happened sometime in February of 1997 (I think) on the east-side of Holbrook, AZ.
I was still in the mandatory training phase of my first over-the-road trucking job, and while my trainer went into the Shell Truckstop to get something to eat, I laid down in the sleeper to try to get to sleep while the truck was not moving. For going to sleep while it was moving was a near impossibility for me.
Anyway, I don’t think I had been laying down all that long when I felt my soul lifting up out of my physical body. When I saw that I was about to pass through the top of the sleeper, I cried out, “No, I’m not ready to go yet!” I don’t know whether I said this out-loud or not, but as soon as I said it, my soul instantly returned to my physical body.
Yep, that was it. I didn’t see any bright light. In fact, I didn’t even see my physical body still laying in the bed, but it has helped to prove to me that many who claim to have experienced an out-of-body experiences, really did experience something.
There is not a doubt in my mind that what Colton Burpo experienced was very real. For while watching that segment, I became overwhelmed with emotion, which is what happens when our Heavenly Father gives me an even more acute awareness of His presence in order to erase any uncertainly about what He is assuring me of.
You can read some more about the book that his dad wrote about his experience [here]. Oh how I hope the purity of this revelation doesn’t get too corrupted. Of course, it would not be anything that our Heavenly Father could not overcome, but it would still be such a shame.
Speaking of such, the following two videos contain some shameful things. In the first one, Pastor Piper talks about how he always considered our Heavenly Father’s Kingdom of Heaven as being a sacred secret that should not be openly discussed before he was allowed a short visit there, and in the second, an atheist minister confidently proclaims that we will return to the nothingness we came from after we die—despite meeting her uncle after she experienced her some time on the other side. Can anyone tell me how anyone could have a greater faith in their beliefs than she does?
