A man raised as an atheist shares his incredible testimony of a trip where he said he went to Heaven and visited with Jesus. He was raised in a godless home where there were no religious celebrations of any kind. He said growing up he saw all the confusion and trouble religion caused and did not want to be associated with it.
The man said he had a dream, which was more like a vision, when he was 15-years-old that changed his life. Although he felt impacted at that young age, it was not until he was older that the dream began to take effect. At that time, he said the dream would be fulfilled on Dec. 28, 2012 when he turned 44.
Growing up an atheist is the most pointless life anyone could live, according to the dreamer. He said life was empty of meaning and purpose and as a youngster he needed both. The vision came and met him in his time of need. Up to this point, he had never read any religious books, and definitely not a Bible. This confirmed to the teen what he had witnessed came from someone “higher” than he because no seeds had been planted in life prior to the dream.
It was the 28th day of Sept. in 1984 when he said his life was taken right out of his hands. He remembers sitting on the bed looking at the stars wondering why they were there and what purpose they served. His thoughts then transitioned to his life and caused him to question whether he had a purpose and if so, what was it. As his thoughts continued he was then overtaken by his dream, or vision; he is not sure which is was but said it was very vivid.
He felt like he was in a trance, where he was aware of what was happening but in a zone. He found himself in the air, not as we know it, but he was “there.” It was scary at first because he thought he might have died. After he adjusted to the shock of what he was experiencing he began to take in the scenery. The landscape was incredible and although he used common language to describe it, he actually said it was so majestic it was indescribable. Everything he saw seemed to emanate life in all its essence.
The man said he could go on forever talking about the details but wanted to get to the main part of his vision which was, who was right beside him as he beheld the splendor of all he witnessed. He said when he turned to his right he knew the person beside him was the creator of all he had seen. He had no knowledge of his name but just “knew” to his core that he was responsible for it all.
He described him in all of his glory even down to the holes in his feet. He said, as he stood in shock, he looked at his hands and they had holes too which were about a half-inch wide. The dreamer said the holes were not bloody, but were more like a status symbol. It was so “heavenly” he felt the urge to kneel but realized he could not because he had no actual body.
After he gathered himself from the majestic being who he felt privileged to encounter he asked him, or he thought it – he is still not sure, if he was God. No sooner than the thought entered his mind, God responded, “I Am.” Immediately the teen said to himself that is impossible because there is no God. This cannot be real. To his surprise, it was real and he could not deny it any longer.
God said to him, “Come and let me show you your destiny.” He said he began to tell him of events which were to come in his life, including special highlights and turning points he would encounter. Most of what he told him about his future was forgotten on the conscious level, like a dream which was half remembered, but all of the events actually took place in his life.
As he came upon each event which he had been told of it was like an instant Déjà vu and he knew, even if it seemed bad, it was part of the plan for his life. He said it was as if the two of them traveled for days but he is not sure whether it was hours or minutes because it is hard to tell in a place that knows no time. The creator laid out his entire life to him from conception to the present time he was in, all 15 years. He did not stop there he continued to reveal to him all that would occur to the very end, describing each event in their proper sequence.
The man said his trip to Heaven changed his life completely. While he was raised an atheist, he instantly became a believer and said he life panned out just the way he was told it would. His incredible testimony describing his vision, where he went to Heaven and spent time with Jesus, can be read in its entirety on the linked source below. He not only shares his story but also his belief, which he stated came from God, on the end of the world as mankind knows it. The story of his vision, dream and experience has recently gone viral.
