My Near Death Experience
By Pst N.White
I wouldn’t be here if not for the people who worked so hard to save my life.
I am forever thankful and grateful to them.
How I felt myself slipping away and knew that I was dying. My experience was very real. I was not hallucinating and it was not a dream-like experience. Why am I sharing this information ? I simply want to affirm this point to all the children of God; we are spirit, have a soul and live in a body.
We are tripartite beings, and we live on after bodily death. Indeed, we are very, very complex beings and only a living God could have created us as we are.
The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 that we were all created with three parts—a spirit, a soul, and a body: “And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
I also want to affirm that God’s Word and not my personal experience or other’s,
should be the foundation on which the Body of Christ is to stand upon in examining all subjective experiences. Bazalwane ( Brethren ) I very much understand my own personal baggage of brokenness, vulnerabilities, flaws and limitations, and take responsibility for my soul. But I want to tell you all that our Almighty God fashioned me perfectly for His calling and gifting in my life, He designed me for my own unique calling. Over the years I learnt to lean on the truth of this verse. It is 1st Corinthians 15:10, where Paul says,
“But by the grace of God I am what I am….”
God made me with unique certain characteristics and personality traits because I need them for the assignment He has planned for my life; and I confidently shine as a trophy of His masterful making.
I love the Church of Jesus Christ as well as studying God’s word and desire to see the church strengthened as people grow in their faith. I very much love the Lord and am very grateful for all that He has done for me. By God’s grace I’ve come to know I’m indeed a spirit being who has a soul and lives in a body. But the real me is my spiritual person. And it’s in the spirit that I’ve been totally changed and made just like Jesus. I worship God based on who I am in the spirit and not on who I am in my flesh.
Moments before his death, Stephen looked into the eternal heavens and saw Jesus standing at the right hand of God the Father. Acts 7:55
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
May the Holy Spirit help me to put my experience into words well. I pray that you get edified as you read the content in this blog post. There is a whole universe that man in all his wisdom is ignorant of. That is the world of the spirit. We aren’t evolved animals; we were created in God’s image and likeness (Gen. 1:26). We are spirit beings.
Not so long back I was bursting with energy, full of life and perfectly
engaging in my work, oblivious to the fact that I was soon going to be admitted in the emergency ward at South Rand Hospital, for the very 1st time in my 37 years on earth. I was very conscious while having severe seizures in the emergency ward and then suddenly felt a separation from my physical body, it was like I was floating out of my body.
I saw a loving white light communicating with me without the use of words, felt engulfed by an overwhelming feeling of peace and bliss. I became very aware that I must be dead. There was overwhelming love in that realm of that loving white light and this was my dominant experience.
Then suddenly I felt something pulling me back to my body.
