God and the Near-Death
experiencers who have seen the light know without a doubt
they have seen God. Once they enter into the light of God
they never want to leave. But they are often told it is
not their time to die and so they return having this experience
of God seared into their very hearts and minds. They carry
this experience back with them to share with others, but
they sometimes find difficulty doing so. But their experience
with the light and the lessons they learned are just too
important to keep to themselves. For example, one particular
experiencer said he was told the time is now for humanity
to know for certain there is life after death. Many aspects
of the NDE are now considered common knowledge among the
public such as the light, the tunnel, the being of light,
etc. Clearly, NDE testimonies are bringing information about
God and heaven to Earth.
One of the best NDE revelations
concerning God, the universe and everything in it comes
from Larry Hagman of the Dallas television series whose
NDE testimony is described in
and in this
list of NDEs
of the Rich and Famous. Here is the revelation he learned:
has within them a unique "celestial song" - an inner
melody wanting to burst forth. The inner vibration
within us connects us to the deep, modulating, harmonious
music of the "celestial orchestra." This cosmic
orchestra is the collective energy of everything
that's ever lived and everything that's ever going
to live. It is the life force. It is the power of
the universe. It is ecstatically happy. The culmination
of this energy is love. Love abounds with its feelings
of ecstasy and deep bliss. It is the love holding
every atom, every sparrow, every galaxy, everything
together. Everyone has forever been a part of this
life force and always will. We are already familiar
with this at a deep level. We know it. The problem
is we bury it under so much apprehension and worry.
Don't worry. Be happy and feel good. There are an
infinite number of levels of existence and each
level adds to the hum of the cosmic orchestra. It's
as if we're always spiraling upward until we reach
a state of atomic bliss. Life continues. The show
goes on in ever varied and unfolding settings."

In this article, experiencers describe
how God is life, light, time and space, the pattern for
all life, the energy of all matter, the heart of all that
matters, the very essence of all being, the source behind
every sun, the source of all light and love, the core of
all things, the single point of infinite light and absolute
love, and the very life force of the universe.
"Within the light of God, we realize that everyone and everything
is connected to God. In the light is the cure for all diseases,
the knowledge within every universe. The light is wisdom
and love beyond all comprehension." (Dr.
"The closer one gets to God, the closer one comes to all
the light, love and knowledge in the universe." (Jayne
"The joy of being in the light of God can be so intense,
we may think we are going to shatter. But God will not let
us shatter. We are not permitted to take in more of this
bliss and joy than we are able to handle at a time." (Jayne
"For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not
come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But
he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds
may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God." (Jesus,
"God is love in its purest form ... To be in his presence
and share his love, we must become as he is and learn to
love without judgments or conditions." (Betty
"God's standard is pure love. Our lives will be compared
to this standard in the light of God. Pure love is serving
God and others without any self-centered motives. Self-centered
motives are what makes our acts (as the scriptures say)
"dirty rags" before God." (Daniel
"The only reality is God and God is love. God loves without
limit. God is everything." (Linda
"I remember a near-death experiencer say that their experience
of being one with God was like suddenly knowing absolutely
everything - like suddenly becoming aware of every grain
of sand in the universe and knowing why it was put there."
"God is everything." (Dr.
"God is everywhere because nothing exists that is not a part
of God. God is neither a man nor a woman nor a thing. Life
itself is God." (P.M.H. Atwater)
"All creation is God exploring God's very being through every
way imaginable, through every one of us." (Mellen-Thomas
"The Biblical name for God, 'I AM,' really has a question
mark behind it. 'I AM? WHAT AM I?'" (Mellen-Thomas
"God is more than light. God is also the darkness." (Dr.
"I form the light and create darkness, I bring
prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these
"The Master-Vibrational energy of God controls the universe
and seems to regulate everything except the ignorance within
the minds of people on Earth." (Arthur
"God is the creative energy of the universe, expressing itself
as us and everything else. Wherever we are, God is. Like
God, we are constantly expressing ourselves in some way."
"God has a vantage point we can never perceive. He sees into
our eternal pasts and futures and knows our eternal needs.
In his great love he answers prayers according to this eternal
and omniscient perspective. He answers all prayers perfectly."
"The small inner voice in your thoughts is the voice of God."
"God wants us to become as he is, and has invested us with
godlike qualities. I understood that he wants us to draw
on the powers of heaven, and that by believing we are capable
of doing so, we can." (Betty
"The little voice inside us that prompts us to do good things
comes from God. It is the light of love inside each of us."
"God doesn't force anyone to heaven, hell, or anywhere.
We are free to choose and build our destiny. All paths lead
back to God." (Edgar
"God perfectly understands our lack of knowledge. He knows
that most of us do not remember our commitments to him.
In his eyes we are like little children: susceptible and
even expected to make mistakes." (Betty
"In the light of God, it is impossible to lie to yourself,
or to others or to God. There is no place for secrets
to hide." (Dr.
"God does not judge us when we die. In the clear light and
love of God, some may judge, condemn and punish only themselves.
There is no judgment except the judgment one levels
at oneself." (Kevin
"God has promised not to intervene in our lives unless we
"It is God's love for us that sends us on our journey
and it is our love for God that allows us to return to God's
loving arms again." (David
"God feels the pain we feel and inflict on others." (Sandra
"One of the grandest mysteries of God is his foreknowledge.
Truth is knowledge of things as they were, as they are,
and as they are to come. God, possessing all truth, has
the ability to know all things in advance. This being the
case, we can trust him to give us only that which will be
good for us in completing our life's mission successfully."
"God's overriding desire is to purify the darkness of
our souls, irrespective of the suffering it puts us through
to achieve that end. If we learn to accept our situations
in life, instead of getting angry, then our suffering is
greatly minimized." (Daniel
"God never uses his love to hurt us. To do so would countermand
his own law of judgment. "Do unto others as you would
have them do unto you." So he will never let us down,
will never forsake us. His love is extended to all, and
he knows exactly how to reach each person." (Betty
"God does not care about theology. God cares mostly about
your heart." (Rev.
"It doesn't matter what you call God. The different religions
have different ways of explaining the same God." (Mellen-Thomas
"Your beliefs shape the kind of feedback you get from God."
"God is not concerned about a person's sexual orientation
whether gay or straight." (Kerry
"Many near-death experiencers have tried to describe
God and it is clear that words are useless when
trying to completely convey what God is. In
fact, the very term God is practically a useless
term, if not the most useless term because it
has been abused by so many for so long. With
this in mind, I will try to convey my own understanding
of the concept called God.
all of reality, everything that there is, to
be a gigantic dream. It is a dream for which
there exists nothing outside of it. This dream
is pure thought, emotion, deeds and words. The
dream is every event that was, is and will be.
Some words that have been used in an attempt
to describe this dream are:
As pure thought, this dream is Mind
itself. It is Light that contains
all the knowledge there is. The
Light is what everything is made
As pure emotion, this dream is unconditional
Love itself. It is the power that
holds everything together - the
power behind every atom.
As pure Being, this dream is Life
itself. It is thought put into action
- into the physical and every other
dimension of reality. The dreamer
is living Spirit with Mind as the
builder and everything (the dream)
is the result.
"Trying to describe exactly what or who God is,
is like trying to describe life itself - an
impossibility. It is impossible to fathom the
unfathomable. Words, by their very nature, are
limiting. Once you define something you have
set a limit on it." (Kevin
