Alright, here’s to the end of Diwali holidays. Besides celebrating it, I was just spending time reading book – “Heaven Is For Real.”
Recently, I’ve been having interest in the subject of afterlife. It’s the subject that which scientist doesn’t have an answer. No one knows until they die and if they die, they won’t be around to give reports. Haha. So the question has been: Do we go to Heaven? Does Hell exist? Or do we get reincarnated?
We have plenty of reports on people having near-death experiences (NDE) in which they reached Heaven and Hell. At the same time, we have people that claims able to recall their past lives. Some religion believes in Heaven and Hell meanwhile there are religions that believes in reincarnation. All led us to contradicting facts.
While I was researching on the Internet, I came across excerpts of the book “Heaven Is For Real.” Upon reading the excerpts online, I decided to get the book. The book is about young boy named Colton Burpo, had NDE during his surgery and had a visit to Heaven.
The family didn’t know whether to believe or not but afterwards, the evidence was clear enough and the facts given by Colton in line with the Bible. It also matched with Akiane Kramarik’s painting “Prince of Peace: Depiction of Jesus Christ.” Akiane Kramarik at the age of four had vivid visions of Heaven, Jesus and Angels. Later, she painted picture of Jesus Christ. After Colton saw the painting, he exclaimed it is the most accurate look of Jesus Christ.
Further summary of the book from Amazon: Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us. Told by the father (Todd Burpo), but often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
While spending the holiday reading this book, I hardly could put it down because the way it inspires the reader to continue reading. It is simple, easy to understand and great book for whoever needs encouragement in their faith. The story goes as per Christian belief (the Holy Bible). Although I’m Hindu, I’m glad I read this book.
Todd Burpo and his family was going through hard time and at the end of it, came blessing. God gave their almost four years old son visit into Heaven, an afterlife place for those who believed in Him. Those insights Colton had at Heaven are revealed little by little and profoundly.
Well, that’s all about this book. We will be sure of Heaven or is it reincarnation once we get there. Haha. Or maybe a chance like Colton had but for adults like us, I doubt for that. It is clearly stated by Jesus, “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.”
Those that reads this book would know what they can look forward to, provided the content of this book is genuine. I’m still curious if anyone that haven’t completely dead could enter place of afterlife worlds. As the Bible also stated, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Sonja: Do you remember the hospital, Colton?
Colton: Yes, mommy, I remember. That’s where the angels sang to me.
