In 2006, Bruce Van Natta was crushed and nearly cut in half under the cab of a logging truck. Even though five of his arteries were severed (besides other damage to his body) he did not bleed out. Bruce knows why because his spirit was floating over the scene of the accident and he saw not only what was happening in the physical world but also what was happening in the spiritual realm.
Watch the video to find out exactly what Bruce saw and what other amazing miracles tipped the scales back from death to life for this man.

You can also watch Bruce’s full 30-minute testimony and see many other video clips and interviews featuring his story including a show on It’s Supernatural with Sid Roth on his ministry website media page. His ministry is Sweet Bread Ministries.
On August 3, 1979, Rev. Howard Pittman, realizing that he was about to die, prayed that he would be permitted the privilege of going before the throne of God to ask for an extension on his life.
He was granted this privilege and much about the nature of demons, God, as well as the condition and future of humanity was revealed to him during his journey through the spirit realm.
The following is a reading of Howard Pittman’s NDE Testimony as Recorded in Placebo (YouTube):
The emergency medical workers and supervising cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall followed standard procedure using defibrillator pads more than a dozen times trying to shock Jeff’s heart back to working order. With each passing minute their chances of successfully resuscitating the heart attack victim plummeted dramatically. After they had worked feverishly for 40 minutes trying to bring Jeff’s heart out of a flatline they had to finally call the time of death and walk away from the corpse.
That would have been the end of a disappointing but not terribly unusual heart attack case. But as Dr. Chauncey Crandall was walking away after filling out some paperwork he sensed the Holy Spirit’s voice saying that he should pray for the now officially dead heart attack victim.
By this time Jeff Markin’s body was being prepared for the morgue. Dr. Crandall walked in there and began praying for Jeff Markin. Another doctor walked in and Dr. Crandall persuaded him to once again apply the defibrillators and see if the body could be shocked back to life. Despite the utter hopelessness of the situation the protesting doctor did as he was asked out of respect to his colleague. Miraculously, Jeff’s heart responded beautifully with a perfect heartbeat and Jeff began breathing again.
He was brought back to life by faith, prayer, and one more try using conventional medicine. Thus he would live to tell about his experience while physically dead. Miraculously Jeff not only came back to life but also did not sustain any brain damage.
In his book, Raising the Dead, Dr. Crandall tells all about this and other cases of raising the dead and healings and what brought him to the place where he has joined his medical expertise with prayer for each of his patients.
I have also found a number of reports and interviews that will fill in more details about this case. I hope you find all these resources and this amazing story to be a great inspiration as you remember the declaration of Jesus Christ: I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. ~ Revelation 1:18

Now, with modern medicine’s improved resuscitation techniques, we have many near death experience stories. But today, I want to share an NDE that occured over 40 years ago.
I recently came across the amazing testimony of a sky diver named Mickey Robinson. Back in August 15, 1968 tragedy hit. The airplane was making a sharp ascent when the engines stopped and the plane crash landed. The pilot was burned alive.
Most of the sky divers were able to get out of the plane without much damage. But Mickey was stuck in the plane because his harness was caught on something. By the time he was rescued, he was severely burned over 35% of his body. He would spend 167 consecutive days in the hospital and go through years of hospital treatment and endure over 50 surgeries.
At one point, the hospital called his sister and said if you want to see your brother, you better see him this morning because he may not be here this afternoon. It was that day, that Mickey’s spirit left his body and he experienced eternity.
I have found three videos where he shares aspects of his near death experience. The first one I saw was this recent interview with Patricia King through my iTunes subscription to Extreme Prophetic Television. However, I notice that the video is not playing correctly on her website (at least on my computer). I hope it plays for you because it is a great interview and the main reason I got interested in Mickey Robinson’s testimony. I recommend subscribing to the iTunes Extreme Prophetic Television podcast and watching the interview posted February 28, 2010.
Or you can watch this Sid Roth interview done 3 years ago. This is also a great interview because, in addition to his near death experience, Mickey shares how his blind eye was restored and how God healed him of damage that was considered incurable by the medical community. And then there is another surprising miracle healing that Mickey reveals in this video — but I don’t want to ruin the surprise…
Both of those interviews are a summary of his near death experience and won’t take much time to watch.
If you would like Mickey Robinson’s book telling his story, check out his book ‘Falling Into Heaven‘.
Jennifer Perez became a Christian under the ministry of Nicky Cruz. She walked faithfully with Christ for two years. But then she went into high school and fell in with the wrong crowd. Soon she was being controlled by drugs.
One night she snuck out of her parents’ house to hang out with friends and landed in big trouble.
This is her testimony of what happened, including her visit to heaven and hell and how she was sent back again to give the world a message from God.
A transcript of her testimony along with audio and video options are available at Divine Revelations or you can listen to the YouTube videos below. Puede leerla el expediente en Espanol tambien por Divine Revelations.

Daniel Ekechukwu was the victim of a fatal car accident.
By God’s grace and power, he was resurrected three days later. You can learn the details of his story and see images of his death certificate and the mortuary’s entry here. You can also download a free eBook featuring his story and 25 other near death experiences.
While dead, Daniel was guided by an angel on a visit to heaven and hell.
A short dramatization of his experience along with some actual footage is here:
Here is the story from Daniel and those involved in the resurrection as they share their experiences and what they saw.
Near death experiences are particularly fascinating to me. By hearing these stories we get a chance to see through another person’s eyes what we may one day see when we pass from this life to the next. I say may because there seem to be two kinds of afterlife experiences: one is positive and the other is negative. So, we don’t all experience the exact same thing after life.
The story I want to share with you today is the story of Ian McCormack. This surfer from New Zealand has a close encounter with a group of box jellyfish (yes, the same kind of sea animal in the movie ‘Seven Pounds’). These extremely poisonous animals sting him and he struggles to live as the poison spreads through his body.
He eventually drifts into the afterlife…
You can see the TBN interview and broadcast here, with the full testimony below.
Here are two videos of Ian telling his story for himself. By watching I believe you will really get a sense of how much this experience has touched his heart.
You have to see this…
Thanks for watching.

Thanks again for watching. If this video touched your heart, I hope you will share a comment.
