After Investigating 1,000 Near Death Experiences, This Author Came To The Conclusion That Life After Death Is Very Real

After Investigating 1,000 Near Death Experiences, This Author Came To The Conclusion That Life After Death Is Very Real by Michael Snyder End of the American Dream

Does life after death really exist?  The answer to this question has fundamental implications for every man, woman and child on the entire planet, and yet most people don’t spend very much time thinking about it.  If this life is not the end, so much of the petty stuff that we spend so much time obsessing over in this life really doesn’t matter, and instead we should be focusing on the things that actually do matter for the life to come.  However, if this life truly is the end, we might as well eat, drink, party and enjoy this life as much as possible because it is all we’ve got.  Of course that is the approach most of us seem to be taking in recent years, but a growing body of evidence clearly indicates that life after death really does exist.  For example, a study that was conducted by Gallup concluded that literally millions of people have had “near-death experiences”

Everyone has thought about life after death at some point. But millions of people have gone beyond thinking about it to actually experiencing it.

One Gallup study shows millions of people have had “near-death experiences” that gave them a glimpse into the afterlife.

In other words, there are a whole lot of people out there that have gotten a glimpse of the other side and have come back to tell us about it.

Author John Burke has investigated 1,000 of those cases, and his research began about 30 years ago when his father was battling cancer.  At the time, he was “not a believer”

Burke first began researching NDEs 30 years ago while his father was dying of cancer. He was not a believer at the time, but his findings would, in essence, propel him closer to faith.

“I didn’t really have faith at the time and that really opened me up. I said, ‘Oh my gosh, maybe this whole God, Jesus stuff is real,’” he said, adding that since then “I’ve studied about 1,000 NDE accounts [while also] studying Scriptures.”

Burke’s research took him on an absolutely amazing journey, and it ultimately resulted in him becoming a believer and later founding a church in Austin, Texas

Previously an engineer with a “very analytical mind,” he later decided to go into ministry and founded Gateway Church in Austin, Texas, where he currently serves as pastor to a flock of 4,500 members.

“I did a lot of searching [and asked], ‘Are there reasons to believe?’” Burke said. “And found lots of them.”

It has been estimated that one out of every 25 people in the United States has had a near death experience, and Burke says that there are 12 common elements that so many of these near death experiences share…

1. Out-of-body experience

2. Heightened senses

3. Intense emotions

4. Passing into or through a tunnel

5. Encountering a mystical or brilliant light

6. Meeting a mystical being or dead friends and relatives

7. A sense that time and space is altered

8. A review of life

9. Encountering unworldly realms

10. Being given special knowledge

11. Reaching or seeing a boundary or barrier they decide not to cross

12. Returning to the body

Of course not everyone that dies and comes back experiences each one of these elements.

But one of the most common things that people tend to experience is a visit to a place of incredible beauty.  In fact, even blind people that die and come back are able to see it while they are there

People often describe a place of exquisite beauty, not unlike the earth, with mountains, forests, flowers, and streams, yet alive in new dimensions of time and space—illuminated by a light that radiates life and love. Even a few NDErs who were blind from birth also “see” the same exquisite beauty. They describe this same mystical light that doesn’t shine on, but out of, everything, affirming the Bible’s explanation that there is no sun or moon in Heaven, but the glory of God is its light (Revelation 21:23-24).

In addition, Burke says that most people that die and come back are given a comprehensive review of their lives by God while they are in this place of incredible beauty…
