39 Heaven... The Don Piper Story

40 About 11:45 A.M., just before I cleared the east end of the bridge, an eighteen-wheeler driven by an inmate, a trusty at the Texas Department of Corrections, weaved across the center line and hit my car head-on. The truck sandwiched my small car between the bridge railing and the drivers side of the truck. All of those wheels went right on top of my car and smashed it.

The truck sandwiched my small car between the bridge railing and the drivers side of the truck. All of those wheels went right on top of my car and smashed it. THE ACCIDENT

41 Heaven... The Don Piper Story The police record says that the truck was driving fast at least sixty miles an hour when it struck my car. Because of the trucks speed, the accident report states that the impact was about 110 miles an hour. That is, the truck struck me while going sixty miles an hour, and I was carefully cruising along at fifty. The EMTs pronounced me dead as soon as they arrived at the scene.

42 Heaven... The Don Piper Story They stated that I died instantly. According to the report, the collision occurred at 11:45 A.M. They had not called for the Jaws of Life to get me out of the smashed car. Because I was dead, there seemed to be no need for speed. Their concern focused on clearing the bridge for traffic to flow again. They stated that I died instantly. According to the report, the collision occurred at 11:45 A.M.

43 Heaven... The Don Piper Story When the truck came in at an angle and went right over the top of me, it smashed the car's ceiling, and the dashboard came down across my legs, crushing my right leg. My left leg was shattered in two places between the car seat and the dashboard. My left arm went over the top of my head, was dislocated, and swung backward over the seat. It was still attachedbarely. When the truck came in at an angle and went right over the top of me, it smashed the car's ceiling, and the dashboard came down across my legs, crushing my right leg.

44 Heaven... The Don Piper Story That left arm had been lying on the driver's side door, because I had been driving with my right hand. As I would learn later, the major bones were now missing, so my lower left arm was just a piece of flesh that held the hand to the rest of the arm. It was the same with the left leg. There was some tissue just above my knee that still fed blood to the calf and foot below. That left arm had been lying on the driver's side door, because I had been driving with my right hand.

45 Heaven... The Don Piper Story Four and a half inches of femur were missing and never found. The doctors have no medical explanation why I didn't lose all the blood in my body. Glass and blood had sprayed everywhere. I had all kinds of small holes in my face from embedded glass. The steering wheel had pounded into my chest. Blood seeped out of my eyes, ears, and nose.

46 Heaven... The Don Piper Story Just from seeing the results of the crash, the EMTs knew I had to have sustained massive head injuries and that my insides were completely rearranged. When he first felt no pulse, one of the EMTs covered me with a waterproof tarp that also blocked off the top of the car.

47 Heaven... The Don Piper Story When I died, I didn't flow through a long, dark tunnel. I had no sense of fading away or of coming back. I never felt my body being transported into the light. I heard no voices calling to me or anything else. Simultaneous with my last recollection of seeing the bridge and the rain, a light enveloped me, with a brilliance beyond earthly comprehension or description. Only that.

48 Heaven... The Don Piper Story In my next moment of awareness, I was standing in heaven. Joy pulsated through me as I looked around, and at that moment I became aware of a large crowd of people. They stood in front of a brilliant, ornate gate. I have no idea how far away they were; such things as distance didn't matter. As the crowd rushed toward me, I didn't see Jesus, but I did see people I had known. In my next moment of awareness, I was standing in heaven.

49 Heaven... The Don Piper Story As they surged toward me, I knew instantly that all of them had died during my lifetime. Their presence seemed absolutely natural. They rushed toward me, and every person was smiling, shouting, and praising God. Although no one said so, intuitively I knew they were my celestial welcoming committee. It was as if they had all gathered just outside heaven's gate, waiting for me. As they surged toward me, I knew instantly that all of them had died during my lifetime.

50 Heaven... The Don Piper Story When I first stood in heaven, they were still in front of me and came rushing toward me. They embraced me, and no matter which direction I looked, I saw someone I had loved and who had loved me. They surrounded me, moving around so that everyone had a chance to welcome me to heaven. I felt lovedmore loved than ever before in my life. They didn't say they loved me. When I first stood in heaven, they were still in front of me and came rushing toward me.

51 Heaven... The Don Piper Story I don't remember what words they spoke. When they gazed at me, I knew what the Bible means by perfect love. It emanated from every person who surrounded me. Everything I saw glowed with intense brightness. The best I can describe it is that we began to move toward that light. No one said it was time to do so, and yet we all started forward at the same time. I don't remember what words they spoke. When they gazed at me, I knew what the Bible means by perfect love.

52 Heaven... The Don Piper Story As I stared ahead, everything seemed to grow taller like a gentle hill that kept going upward and never stopped. By contrast, the powerful light I had encountered when I met my friends and loved ones paled into darkness as the radiance and iridescence in front of me increased. It was as if each step I took intensified the glowing luminosity. As I stared ahead, everything seemed to grow taller like a gentle hill that kept going upward and never stopped.

53 Heaven... The Don Piper Story I didn't know how it could get more dazzling, but it did. I wasn't blinded, but I was amazed that the luster and intensity continually increased.

55 Heaven... The Don Piper Story Sometimes people have asked me, "How did you move? Did you walk? Did you float?" I don't know. I just moved along with that welcoming crowd.

57 Heaven... The Don Piper Story During that momentary pause, something else changed. Instead of just hearing the music and the thousands of voices praising God, I had become part of the choir. I was one with them, and they had absorbed me into their midst. I had arrived at a place I had wanted to visit for a long time; I lingered to gaze before I continued forward.

72 Hell... Dr. James Kennedy Interview

73 I have heard the testimony of a man who went to Hell. He described himself as an atheist. He believed neither in soul nor spirit nor angel nor God. "When you are dead," he said, "you are dead like a dog. One day he planned to crawl into a hole and pull the top in over him. He did not believe in Heaven or hell or God.

74 But then he did, in a very enlightening wayhe died! Not long ago he had a cardiac arrest, and the doctors pronounced him clinically dead.

Dr. James Kennedy Interview

75 He found himself in great agony pushing a huge stone into a pit. (The Bible speaks of a pit.) He was in great pain, and there was nothing he could do to diminish it. "If you got shot in the arm," he said, "you could at least grab your arm and get some slight lessening of pain, but not with this." I asked, "Where was it? Was it localized?"

Dr. James Kennedy Interview

76 His answer was, "No, it was everywhere. I am quite certain that if I had cut my throat I would not have lessened that pain at all." When I questioned how severe the pain was, he said, "It s worse than anything I have ever experienced in this world." I thought perhaps he had never known much pain. I asked, "Have you ever really suffered any pain in this world?" His answer was, "No, it was everywhere. I am quite certain that if I had cut my throat I would not have lessened that pain at all."

77 He said, "Well, when I was nine years old a freight train ran over my leg and left it hanging by a tendon. Somehow I picked it up, dragged myself to a crossing, and was finally picked up by a man in a car. I never passed out, but my blood squirted all over his windshield as he drove me to a hospital I was never unconscious." "How did that pain compare to the time when the doctor said you were dead?" I asked. He said, "Well, when I was nine years old a freight train ran over my leg and left it hanging by a tendon.

I asked. Hell... Dr. James Kennedy Interview

78 "It was insignificant," he answered. "I wouldn't even compare it." I told him, "I once burned my hand rather severely and experienced a pain unlike anything I have ever known before or since. Did you ever burn yourself?" He said, "Yes, I knocked a can of gasoline off a shelf over a candle onto my leg and set my remaining leg on fire. "It was insignificant," he answered.

79 As a result I spent several weeks in the hospital." He raised In pants leg and showed me the scars. I said, "I know of nothing in this world that compares to the pain of burning. How did the pain you experienced with you died compare with that?" He answered, "It was one thousand times worse than when my leg was on fire! As a result I spent several weeks in the hospital." He raised In pants leg and showed me the scars. I said, "I know of nothing in this world that compares to the pain of burning. How did the pain you experienced with you died compare with that?" He answered, "It was one thousand times worse than when my leg was on fire! Hell... Dr. James Kennedy Interview

80 I tried every way I knew to explain that away, but everything dissolved before my attempts to do it. I did not believe in hell before, and I did not want to believe in it then. On the face of this earth, no matter what you did to me, I don't think you could experience the pain that I experienced in that hospital.

81 I asked, "What do you think that was?" Why, I feel that it definitely had to be something other than on this earth, so the only place I can think of is that there must be a hell, and I was in it.
