In our day, God
is revealing spiritual knowledge to perhaps greater numbers of people
than before. These are everyday people who have no formal calling to
the religious ministry. Most of these spiritual manifestations come
uninvited and unexpected by those who receive them. Some are full-blown
near-death experiences. Others, merely brief glimpses of spirit beings,
or a softly whispered word or name. Regardless, the effect on those
who experience glimpses of heaven is the same. Understanding of God
or of the spirit world is magnified in some specific way. Comfort comes.
Hearts are changed. Lives are set more firmly upon a path of faith
and upon the recognition that earth is bound inseparably to heaven.
That each life here carries a purpose which is eternally important
in God's greater plan.
Since writing Embraced By The Light,
I have received many letters sharing readers' own near-death experiences
or other kinds of spiritual events connected with heaven. These experiences
never fail to amaze me and fill me with love for a Heavenly Father who,
through his grace and wisdom, grants such blessings to his children.
He knows each one of us perfectly, and he allows spiritual experiences
into our lives which can benefit our personal growth in ways perhaps
unattainable by other means.
I share these
experiences, some under conditions of anonymity, because I know that
sharing them will touch hearts and change lives. It is good, as the
spirit prompts us, to speak of our spiritual experiences. To bring
a witness to others of the kind and loving nature of our Creator. To
add to the ripple effect of spiritual understanding and Godly love
which is beginning to swell all over the globe. May it continue on
and on, until people everywhere know God and love him and look to him
in faith, not fear. This is my unending prayer and the purpose behind
all I do.
In God's love,
