Sunday November 1st at 10:45 Don Piper will be speaking at Willow Point Baptist Church about God’s miraculous intervention in his life when he died and got a glimpse of Heaven. His is a message of Hope and Encouragement, no matter how bad things are in your life. Bring a friend for this wonderful message of Hope and Encouragement!
Really? Can someone really come back from the dead? That is the question. Did Don Piper really see Heaven? Lots of people in the Bible died and then came back. God gave some people in the Bible visions of Heaven which are written in the Bible. With so many posers and charlatans out there, who are we to believe? Here is a simple test that I want to encourage everyone to do. The Bible teaches us to test the spirits/doctrine, so simply ask these questions:
Put it to the test!
(1) Scripture Test: Does anything they say (a) contradict, (b) add to, (c) or take away from Scripture? Limit all experiences to the confines of Scripture.
(2) Holy Spirit Test: Does the Holy Spirit bear witness with your spirit this is real?
(3) Godly Leaders Test: Are there a large number of highly respected Godly leaders who would agree with you?
Remember you still have a choice to believe them or not believe them. They can be saying everything right, but does it mean they really had a life-after-death experience? Not at all. You can be skeptical (doubting) of the story about their personal experience, but that does not mean you have to be critical (fault finding, judging, accusing, condemning).
Skeptical/Doubting is saying, “I like what the person says, but I reserve judgment because that is a personal story which is unable to be verified.” There is nothing wrong with that approach. If you have peace with Scripture, peace with the Spirit of God, and peace with numerous other Godly leaders about believing a person’s story, then that is good too. You should not be criticized about your belief.
Invite your friends, come and hear Don’s story, and make your own decision!
