My Time in Heaven

6 Sep

by Richard Sigmund

The author is reported to have been dead for 8 hours when he had his first experience in heaven. Since then he claims to have been to heaven more than eighty times, accounting for much of the detail in this book.

It is great for children or for someone who does not know Christ. The book is well written, easy to read, and has a very brief account of a revelation of hell.

Reading this book should fill the reader with awe and a great longing to be in the presence of God.

Intra Muros, Within the Walls, My Dream of Heaven

22 Aug

by Rebecca Ruter Springer

This nineteenth centrury classic is Rebecca Springer’s description of heaven as she experienced it. She writes: “The pages of this little volume contain no fancy sketch, written to while away an idle hour; but are the true, though greatly condensed, record of an experience during days when life hung in the balance between Time and Eternity, with the scales dipping decidedly toward the Eternity side.”

Rebecca’s descriptions of life in heaven and her interactions with her loved ones can be a great source of comfort for those who are losing or have lost dear friends in this life.

Originally published as Intra Muros in 1898, it is still available today in English (from Taxus Baccata Books http://www.browsersbookstore.com/publishing.html). This is the most complete version, the only version which includes Chapter 5, in which Rebecca describes being sent back to earth. Although invisible, and unbeknowns to her husband, Rebecca is able to save his life.

Republished by Harrison House as My Dream of Heaven, the text is only slightly edited, although Chapter 5 is omitted. Beautifully covered as a hardback, its paper and font elegantly designed, this version makes an wonderful gift.

Another version, Within the Gates (published by Christ for the Nations) is abridged, omitting a great deal of dialog, but without improving readability.

Another version, Within Heaven’s Gates (published by Whitaker House) is the most readable version. However, it omits chapters 4-6 appearing in the original and, curiously, all references to days, weeks, and months.

Paradise, the Holy City and the Glory of the Throne

11 Aug

by Elwood Scott (abridged version)

This book contains what is probably the most moving account of the glories of heaven that I have ever read. The back cover text is quoted here:

Near the turn of the 20th century, God gave Seneca Sodi the glorious experience of spending forty days in Heaven. This book will challenge your life and give you hope and encouragement to set aside all hindrances and press on into the glory of God.

As he relates his experiences to Elwood Scott, you will feel as though you are right with him, seeing the many different scenes of the Celestial Kingdom, escorted by King David. You will wonder at the glory and immensity of what God has prepared for us.

Your heart will be stirred at the description of the Holy Convocation around the Throne as Jesus speaks an end-time message of preparation for His coming. Your mind and heart will be enlarged as you look into a world beyond the veil and know that it will be worth it all!
