 {A Christian Soldiers Near Death Experience}  (Book Link to my testimonial)

Cecil Murphey bookI did a book review on Amazon. com tonight after seeing my story in print; as follows.

I am Roland Dell of (A Christian Soldier’s Near Death Experience). I was most pleasantly surprised to see my story in print, thank you very much! I wanted to clarify for the “historical account”; that I had returned from Ft Bragg after OEF: I was at Ft. Meade, MD in water survival with the Army on the 6th of Feb 2005 (my 20 years of service) just 2 days after my ordination.
I had prayed privately that I would be effective like Paul and Silas for the Lord (not just pew stuffing); and that “the enemy might know who I was” (like in Acts 16). The nurse “who I had never seen before” simply repeated back to me, my private prayer “concerning the enemy”.
Reference (17) – I had “confirmed to me by the Holy Spirit”, that the “being” lying next to me was the Lord, and I could even make out dimly, the robe, beard, and hair length – as “HE” (the good shepherd) pressed next to me (2 COR 5:6). My web site is Lightship Ministries.Org: feel free to stop by.


 

 

A Christian Soldier's Near-death Experience​ = 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 (ESV) 6 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

I think perhaps the story sound better,  as it is written; yet the truth is in the details, so I wanted to just clarify some points…

Additionally – Anya Laurence, of suite 101, had originally written the first professional account of my story on the internet – under the “para normal heading”, (near death) but the site has since been removed. The only other (Christian) story “which I wrote’, was located on Bible Probe – under Near-death experiences. It is also my understanding that Rev. John Price, (also an FBI Chaplain) did a short bit on me after a phone interview, that appeared in his book of research on the subject.

I must say, it is my opinion that doing research on Near Death, is akin to trying to “teach people” into believing and following Jesus Christ, as their savior. I’m terribly sorry, but it is the Lord alone, who brings someone unto himself, with the gift of salvation. And all the four brained calculated “natural understanding” in the world, cannot effect the sovereignty of God; nor who HE has decided to grace – or not grace, into his kingdom.

In short, you can neither “sign up for Jesus”, nor enter the kingdom of heaven, apart from the grace of Christ. The terribly tragic part is – for those who have been “given the chance to become sons and daughters of God” – the Bible tells us, that few will be able to enter. Take the “narrow road” the way of the cross, Jesus told his disciples. We must be made “conformed to HIS image by way of the cross alone, and not enemies of it! As “we” have to go – and be replaced by Christ’s righteousness alone, should we hope to enter in with HIM (NOW), as its too late later!


 

 [A footnote] Yesterday, I must confess that I was a little upset that the “secular world” seemed to overlook the main point of my experience. However, I honestly believe this “may not” be intentional… In John 8:43 Jesus exclaims: 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Please see my next post – “You can’t force the blind to see”…
