The story of what Colton Burpo experienced when he was 4 years old is taking America by storm. During emergency surgery, Colton Burpo died, and what he saw after that is causing a lot of people to reconsider what they believe about life after death. Initially after Colton left his body, he was able to see what his mother and father were doing. When he told them these details later they were amazed because he was in surgery at the time and they were not with him. After that, Colton was transported to heaven. In heaven, Colton met his great-grandfather, who had died long before Colton was born. After Colton came back he was able to recognize pictures of his great-grandfather from a photo album.
But Colton did not just catch up with family members that had passed on. The truth is that Colton says that he actually saw God the Father. In addition, Colton says that he met Jesus and in the video below Colton describes what Jesus looks like. Also, Colton also claims that he met John the Baptist.
One thing that really validated this experience for his family was when Colton told his mother that she had miscarried a little girl at one point. His mother had never told Colton about that, but it was the truth. Colton met his little sister that was never born during his trip to heaven.
The following is a video interview with Colton and his father. It is absolutely jaw-dropping....
The new book about this amazing experience that little Colton Burpo had is entitled Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.
The following is the description of this book from Amazon.com....
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.
Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
So how can you know that you will go to heaven too?
The truth is that Jesus Christ (Yeshua in Hebrew) died on the cross to pay the penalty for all of our sins so that we could be brought into a right relationship with God.
If you will repent from your sins and confess Jesus as Lord, you will be saved and you will go to heaven when you die too. For much, much more about this, please see the following article that we posted on another one of our websites: What Does The Bible Say About Salvation?
