As an atheist Ian McCormack didn’t believe in heaven or hell. He lived his life as if God didn’t exist, and spent a lot of time surfing and diving. One day, while he was having a good time in the ocean, he suddenly felt something smash into his forearm. It felt as if thousands of volts of electricity went through his body. He was stung by five deadly box jellyfish. These are so poisonous, that even one can kill a person in four minutes…
Just before he passed away he suddenly had a bright vision of his mother, who was a passionate believer in Jesus Christ. Ian saw how she was praying for him with all her heart. Then he died… When Ian opened his eyes, he was in a very dark and fearful place. He tried to touch his face, but noticed that his hands went straight through his body. He couldn’t touch himself.
But while he tried to look around in this agonizing place, a bright light suddenly shined down and pulled him up. Jesus Christ took Ian and brought him to heaven. There he had an overwhelming experience of the wonderful love of God. Ian felt waves of love wash over him, and knew for the first time in His life that God is indeed love – true love. Ian wasn’t allowed to stay in heaven and God sent him back, to share his encounter with others and tell them about Jesus Christ.
Watch the dramatic re-enactment of Ian’s accident and his experiences in hell and heaven and listen to Ian’s story during an in depth interview.

Robin Harfouche was predestined by satan to become a false prophets of the new age religion. She however ran away from the realm of darkness and encountered Jesus Christ in a miraculous way. God healed her from a terribe condition, she received the Holy Spirit and married a walking Bible encyclopedia: Dr. Chris Harfouche. Robin became a disciplined and faithful follower of Jesus Christ.
Robin was overwhelmed by the incredible worship, that was characterized by one thing: it is worship in total abandonment! People worship God in heaven with literally everything they are. There is no control, but total freedom to expres all your passion to Him. Jesus Christ gave her insights to share with the world, on how to overcome sickness, pain and attacks from satan and how the glory of God will be released on earth through the Sound of Heaven…
As His people will learn to surrender themselves completely and worship God with all their heart, spontaneously and unhindered by criticism or control of men, then the presence of God will explode in our midst!

Of course there are far more testimonies than what I have listed here. If you search the internet, you will find amazing documentaries, that all confirm the message of the Bible.
An important question however, is: do all people go to heaven automatically? The answer is very logical: of course not. Heaven is God’s place. So it is normal that only people who truly love God will be with Him.
God however wants all of us in heaven. He loves us, no matter what we have done wrong and He wants to forgive us and make us His beloved children. That’s why He sent His Son Jesus Christ. I don’t know how much you know about Jesus Christ, but if you are interested in heaven, you also need to discover who Jesus is.
That may sound weird to some who read this, but it is true. We are all sinful, none of us is perfect. We know this. If anyone would say he or she is perfect and without sin, this person is very dishonest. We all have lied, been selfish, we have hurt other people, we have unclean thoughts and desires, we are humans! We are imperfect.
The Bible calls this sin. Evil has entered this world because people opened their heart to it, and evil is at work in every single person on earth. Because of this darkness in our hearts, we can never be in heaven, in the presence of God who is absolutely perfect and holy.
Not only is it impossible for sinful people to be in the presence of a perfect and holy God, it is also impossible for us to have intimate fellowship with God here on earth, because of sin. Sin is like a wall that is standing erect between us and God. Many people say ‘well, if there is a God, where is he? I don’t see him, I don’t hear him, I don’t feel him? So there is no God…’
Therefor God sent Jesus Christ, to pay the price for us, so we could be set free from sin. I don’t know if you realize what this means: God became a mortal human being, and He allowed sinful men to torture, mock and kill Him. Why? Because God loves us with a love we can never fully understand. Although God is completely holy and perfect, He is burning with deep love, and He wants to save us from the sins that defile us and make us into His forgiven, cleansed, reborn children, who are His precious beloved ones forever and ever, sharing in His amazing goodness and glory.
Jesus Christ therefor didn’t come to set up a new religion, as many people may think. Jesus came to set people free from the grip of sin and to bring us back in the loving arms of our wonderful heavenly Father. Jesus has come to pay the price for our lives!
We are all imprisoned in sin, we can never become holy by our own efforts. That is utterly impossible. We all need a savior, someone who saves us from the evil tendencies inside the depths of our hearts, that make us selfish and dishonest in sometimes the most secret ways.
When we believe the good news of Jesus Christ who paid the price for our sins, to make us children of God, we can receive the Holy Spirit. He is God in us and God with us. Jesus Christ said it was better for us that He would not stay in physical form on earth, because if He left, the Holy Spirit would come, and He will not only be with us, but He will be inside of us.
The Spirit of God is the most wonderful reality we can ever imagine: He pours out the life changing, healing love of God in our hearts. He transforms us from sinful people into loving people, who have one desire: love God and love people. The Holy Spirit is God Himself, living inside of us. He becomes our very best friend.
