This is the amazing story of Howard Pittman's near death experience after his spirit left his body and he found himself standing outside the gates of heaven. Howard Pittman had died of a brain aneurysm on August 3, 1979. Some people would classify his experience as an out of body experience. Others would call it a near death experience. Whatever you choose to call it, once you hear his story there will be no question in your mind that he is telling you the truth, unless you are a skeptic of course. There always seems to be a skeptic in every crowd. As you listen to Howard Pittman's story, you'll see that he was a Christian at the time of his experience. He had taken people into his home, preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ on street corners, worked as a law enforcement officer for over 26 years, became an ordained minister and was considered an upstanding citizen of the community. Yet God rejected him, rejected his work and the reason God gave for rejecting him (and his work) will come as a surprise to many people. After listening to his testimony, I would have to say this is the most convincing testimony I have ever heard in my life. I've heard other NDE testimonies but this story is unique. What you will hear about is not his vision of hell nor of his walking down the streets of heaven. The entire testimony (on this particular video) of what God said to him takes place while he stood outside of the gates of heaven. Someone once said that one of Satan' greatest achievements was to convince the world that he doesn't exist. Sad to say, many people do not believe there is a devil nor do they believe there is life after death. They believe that the here and now is all there is. Maybe that is you. After you view this video and listen to Howard Pittman's story, I believe your mind will be changed about that. Knowledge is power and the knowledge that is offered by this man could very well change the course of someone's life today. With that in mind, I believe this is the most important Op-ed I have ever offered to my readers. Please listen carefully to Mr. Pittman's story and ask yourself, am I part of that 2.5% that will make it or I am in the 97.5% that won't? As you will learn, Howard Pittman was given the number of people who died and went to heaven within a 15 minute window on August 3,1979. He saw these people. He was also given the number of people who had died and left the earth within that 15 minute window of time that day and there were 2000 people who had died (within that 15 minute window). That means that 1,950 people who died, did not make it to heaven within those 15 minutes on August 3, 1979. Only 50 souls made it to heaven within that 15 minute period of time. This message is not an easy one but considering the lateness of the hour it is a most necessary one. I pray that the testimony of Howard Pittman will be the beginning of a new life for you and that God will bless you as you share Howard Pittman's story with others. _________ All comments are welcome but please listen to the entire video before sharing your thoughts. Thank you.
