Heaven "is" for real!!!,
This review is from: Heaven is for Real (Amazon Instant Video)
When I lost my husband in 2006, things happened that was extremely similar to this little boy's story. He said he heard music about 5 hours before he transitioned into Heaven and other things happened as well that was confirmation that he would be with Jesus in Heaven when he left this earth. Almost exactly 1 hour before he left this world, he looked at the ceiling with his eyes roaming back and forth as though he was looking at something, then he said abruptly "I have to go!" I thought he was losing oxygen to the brain so I assumed he was talking out of his head. Me and 2 other nurses were in the room with him. I said "You do? Where do you have to go?" He didn't say anything to me but kept looking at the ceiling with his eyes going back and forth then he said "I don't know. You'll have to ask her if it's okay." He was talking to someone! He was so weak by then that as he turned his head to look at me and point, he could barely do so. I knew then he was asking if he could go with the ones he was talking to. He transitioned peacefully and literally took his last breath with a smile on his face. The thought crossed my mind that he was "birthed" into Heaven. When he left his body, I could feel what he was experiencing. I learned later that this does happen sometimes with family members. He was feeling an unexplainable joy and peace. I could also sense that he was looking at his body thinking, maybe saying, there's no way I'm going back in there! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt he's in Heaven and one day I'll be joining him. So, needless to say, this movie made me cry... a lot! My husband now, a widower, also related to this movie. We both are not only believers of Jesus but know from experience that this is all for real... Jesus, God, Heaven... and, sadly, hell. I just thank Him for the opportunity for salvation so we can live eternally with Him and our loved ones in Heaven.

Your story brought me to tears! My Grandmother passed similarly, and my mom saw a small brightness to her forehead before she passed. Thank you for your enlightening story.

When my husband was passing, I too had an insight into what he was seeing. Some of the comments he made were "what line I go in? I want water, so I offered him water. He turned his head and said not that kind of water..........Holy Water. He smiled big and said to someone "that's me mom". (He never spoke like this in life.....ever). He cried when he saw "Hector" (a neighbor). He then said I'm so sorry.....I didn't know, I didn't know". He called out "here, Rhoda....here" Rhoda was his deceased mother's name. I told John it was okay to go. I also asked if he would come visit me. He said he would if they would let him, but that he didn't know what the signs would be. I told him I would know. (Note: I've had dozens and dozens and dozens of signs.). John then said "I'm going", closed his eyes forever. He passed away 14 years ago, and I still get signs. I look forward to the movie.

Non-Christians have similar experiences sans Jesus. Christians don't have a monopoly on the afterlife.

My Grandmother lost the love of her life at the age of 52. She was 48. She never remarried, or even saw another man ever, because she believes she will join him in Heaven! she made it to 87 before her death! she was really something to look up to and she was a Christian woman (meaning she gave her life to the Lord Jesus Christ)! Nice write up!
