Testimonies of People Who Have Seen the After-Life
Bestselling author Roberts Liardon relates the accounts of four people who have had glimpses into the after-life in his book “Visions of Heaven.” The stories begin with his own account of an open vision of a visit to heaven as a child. This testimony has been received by over a million people through the use of spoken and written presentations.
Liardon carefully explains four types of visions and angels: he also discusses the subjects of the rivers of life, the substance of praise, the throne room of God, unclaimed blessings and the river of life. He describes Jesus as Lord, Savior, and friend and the awareness of God’s presence.
In Marietta Davis’ account of her vision of heaven in the year 1848 she provides the reader with assurance of the absence of fear in heaven, no sorrow, or suffering. Rebecca Springer’s vision tells of the beauty of heaven, the river of life, the mansion of heaven and of life in heaven. H. A. Baker and his wife while serving as missionaries opened Adullam Home for teenage beggar boys on the streets Kotchiu, China. These children were caught up in a vision to the city of God and testify of seeing Jesus on the Throne, much as He appeared to John on the Isle of Patmos.
Every reader will appreciate the Question and Answer section included in the appendix. Answers include what the Bible says with specific references providing the answers.
“Visions of Heaven” is a beautiful story of promise; it is a revelation of God’s love, offering joy, comfort, affirmation, and rest to the believer.
