What Happens When I Die by Bill Wiese

I have had an interest in the things that Bill Wiese has written about. Things like near-death experiences, things people say before they die, visions people have as well as out of body experiences going to heaven and to hell. I am not a stranger to being at someone's death bed and have found these times to be both profound and life-changing. I have also had a vision personally of going to hell. My own personal experience was not for telling others to draw them closer to their own personal salvation but was more to show me that we, as Christians, have authority over satan and not vice-versa. I began to read this book following the death of one of my younger sisters who died on 11-14-13. The Lord revealed to me that my sister was going "home" before Thanksgiving of this year when we thought she really had more time. I had heard right. I had the honor to officiate my sister's Celebration of Life service. My first to do. I was humbled and honored. It was a good time for me to have read this book and I hung on every word. This book has many scriptures to back what Bill Wiese shares. There are many well known people who are quoted and many, many testimonies you will want to read. I live in a rural community where I often feel others look at me as being odd for believing in such things as near death experiences, visions and dreams, other ways the Lord it felt truly well for me to spend some time with this author reading his book. I felt I was in like minded/spirited company and for this I am truly grateful. I pray you will also get this book for yourself and read it. It is comforting to read. That was my experience. I say thanks to the Lord for inspiring this man of God to write this book and for the experiences he gave him to share with us all. God bless you Bill Wiese!!! Thanks for obeying the Lord in your calling and for writing this book as well as the other...."23 Minutes in Hell." I recommend this book!!!

The Power of a Half Hour by Tommy Barnett

I really thought this book would help me to organize my time better and I agree that it could possibly do just that. However, this was not the thing that struck me the most when reading it. What did make an impact on my life were all the testimonies and experiences which the author shares throughout his book. Tommy Barnett is the senior pastor of Phoenix First Assembly of God which is a home base for more then 260 outreach ministries. This tells me that the man has experience and that he has learned how to manage his time well. He also founded the original dream center in Los Angeles which I had heard about from a friend who would minister there. I heard only good things and it always made me want to go there to visit and perhaps to also minister alongside of those ministering there. I loved this book and I think you will find many nuggets of truth packed inside which will help you as well in your walk with our Lord. Many good principles here plus scripturaly sound. I recommend it! God bless you!!! I received this book for free in exchange for a free book review from Waterbrook Press publishing through the Waterbrook Multnomah book review program.
