It amazes me how long I can have pondered upon something... and never "saw" the new discovery. I had one of those "Aha!" moments earlier this evening. 28 years now, after the wreck, I've thought of something "new."
I had first been thinking about an embarrassing encounter I'd had with with a heavy, glass door at my church. Let's just say the bruise has now faded! People with depth perception problems have a"near death from embarrassment encounter" on a fairly frequent basis...! (my eyesight was affected as a result of the wreck that killed my family).
Blindness unfortunately affects one of the toddlers at our church. This beautiful child is, tragically, both blind and deaf.
BUT...the first person she will see and hear for the first time... will be Jesus! How fantastic that will be! That reminded me that the first person I will see with my newly restored vision also, will be Jesus! And then it "hit" me...
When I saw the face of Jesus during my NDE-- I HAD PERFECT EYESIGHT!
Immediately after the wreck I experienced double vision from the crossed eye. BUT--
There was NO double vision, nothing distorted during the NDE -- no pain experienced-- even though I had numerous life-threatening injuries. I had perfect vision and was completely pain-free and "whole."
"...His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance." Rev. 1:16 (NIV)
That "bright, shining light," that so many with a NDE encounter...perfectly matches the biblical description of Jesus' face "shining like the sun."
And it describes exactly what I saw. Additionally, there was absolutely no eyestrain or after- shadows or any problems maintaining my focus on such a baffling, bright brilliance. No negative "aftereffects" whatsoever! Only "positive"!
For me, this experience substantiates the belief that there is restoration of complete and total health to our bodies after death.
Far from decay...what really happens to us; to our children that have transitioned...is we are restored to better than new!
'No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins" Luke 5:38 (NIV)
Praise and thanks be to God for His healing and restoration to wholeness!
