That video is something everyone alive should see and hopefully see.
Yet what is unfortunate is that even after seeing such evidence many people are unwilling to take it seriously. It disturbs the comfort zone, big
style. But if these first-hand accounts show that nothing that happens in a lifetime is as important as taking the Gospel seriously, we can only be
spurred on to make the truth known.
Jesus taught on this very subject (Luke 16:19-31). A man entering eternity without his sin forgiven begs God to let him go back and warn his family
about the reality, convinced they will then realise what he tells them is true. He says:
'...if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.' (= turn from living our way to God's way) But he told him: 'If they don't
listen to Moses and the prophets (=the Old Testament), they will not be pursuaded if someone rises from the dead.'
This was primarily demonstrated when Christ Himself rose from the dead after three days in the grave. As a result, some who had opposed His teaching
did become His disciples, even on masse, as they were reminded that what had happened was precicely what the Old Testament had been foretelling over
thousands of years (Luke chapter 24). Others went to great lengths to try and shut up those who talked about the resurrection, just as Jesus had
forseen. They weren't open to the possibility that He was who he said He was, no matter what the evidence.
However, as the second video shows, with modern resuscitation techniques more and more people are coming forward and (sometimes reluctantly) admitting
that their experience after clinical death affirms that what Moses, the prophets, Christ Himself and the apostles all wrote in the Bible is
