Agree 100 %--have been through it as a youngster. I am now 88 years old and recall it almost 100%

I too, had a full blown NDE 36 years ago. The memory has not faded as it is realer than real... and I heart heaven.

Near Death Experience

I too died and was taken into that beautiful LIGHT and HIS Warmth that surrounding HIM is His Love.... I can remember everything like it just happened a few minutes ago. I was 25 yrs old I am now 72 yrs old. His Love and that beautiful LIGHT has never left me.... Yes, I died and was gone from my body for over 1 hour..... HaShem has used this beautiful gift of this adventure to help many of my cancer patients know that death is nothing to be afraid of as a matter of fact it is a beautiful passing from the pain of this life to the love and warmth of His Presence forever.

NDE experiences

Having had a nde more than 30 years ago, I can relate to what others have said, it has strengthened my faith in Gods promises. Was told to return as I was not finished yet, have had the best of health since. Know we are cared for and loved in our life and need to act according to God`s will/

The very real essence of humans, the soul, lives on.

All human beings live on after physical death. This is not what is referred to as life in the next world, which comes at a later point. The righteous live a supremely wonderful existence at that time, while the truly wicked go through immeasurable suffering. The mostly righteous sometimes need to undergo a period of suffering to atone for their sins and then live a wonderful existence. When mashiach comes there will be resurrection of the dead, when they come back into their physical bodies. After this resurrection, the world will go through periods of time culminating in the afterlife/next world for those whom G-D deems fitting to enjoy that for eternity.

Crossing the Finish Line

I remember learning from the Rabbi of the Orthodox Temple in the Sothern US where my parents occasionally attended services, that in Ethics of the Fathers it says all of "Israel" have a share in the world to come. The Rabbi explained that only Jews are guaranteed a share in that world and that a literal handful of non-Jews gain entrance there. If that is so, would they have one of these near death experiences? Are they judged as the Jews are? For what end?
