WITH YOU TODAY. JIM ANDERSON SUFFEREDMULTIPLE HEART ATTACKSAND WAS DECLARED DEAD.

HE'LL DESCRIBE IN INCREDIBLEDETAIL THE TASTE OF HEAVEN.HE ALSO EXPLAINS WHATHAPPENED WHEN HE ASKED

GOD IF HE CAN GO BACK TO HISWIFE. AND DORINDA LOWE'SINJURIES WERE SO

CATASTROPHIC AFTER AN 18WHEELER RAN OVER HER CARTHAT SHE WAS GIVEN LITTLECHANCE OF SURVIVAL. WHILE

DOCTORS FOUGHT TO KEEP HERALIVE, DORINDA LEARNEDTHAT GOD IS REAL FOR THEVERY FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE.

YOU'LL HEAR HOW SHE WASSPARED AND IT CHANGED HERFOREVER. AND LAURA-LYNN MET UP

WITH A FEW CANADIANS TO SEEWHAT THEY BELIEVE ABOUTTHE AFTERLIFE. BUT FIRST, JIMANDERSON DESCRIBES THE

SWEET TASTE OF HEAVEN. CLEAR. CLEAR. I FELT LIKE I WAS FADINGAWAY. NEXT THING I KNEW,

OFF IN THE DISTANCE, I SAW AWHITE LIGHT. JIM ANDERSON WAS DYINGFROM A MASSIVE HEART

ATTACK. THE ONLY SIGNS OFTROUBLE CAME A YEAREARLIER. BUT HIS DOCTORCALLED THE SYMPTOMS STRESS

RELATED. JIM WAS WORKING12-HOUR DAYS AS ASUPERVISOR AT A WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT.

BUT THIS TIME, JIM KNEW ITWAS MUCH MORE THAN STRESS.I WAS, UH, RESTING IN MYBEDROOM AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN I HAD A CRUSHINGPAIN IN MY CHEST. AND, UH,THE PAIN RADIATED DOWN MYARM AND UP THE SIDE OF THE

NECK, COULDN'T CATCH MYBREATH. AND I CALLED TO MYDAUGHTER. I SAID YOU'REGOING TO HAVE TO GET ME TO

THE HOSPITAL. I'M NOT GOINGTO MAKE IT. A BALLOON CATHETER WASINSERTED INTO HIS ARTERY. HE

WAS STABILIZED AND PLACEDON A HEART TRANSPLANT LIST.BUT TWO DAYS LATER, JIMFLAT LINED.

I COULD SEE EVERYONERUSHING INTO THE ROOM. ICOULDN'T HEAR THE ALARMSGOING ON. IT'S LIKE I HAD--

HAD GONE UNDERWATER. THE--THE HEARING HAD JUST--JUSTFADED AWAY. THAT'S WHEN IBEGAN TO PRAY. I KNEW I WAS

DYING. IT WASN'T A SCAREPRAYING, IT WAS EARNEST. TOTAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY. AS IPRAYED, IT GOT DARKER TO

THE POINT IT WENT BLACK.NEXT THING I KNEW OFF IN THEDISTANCE, I SAW A WHITELIGHT. AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

JUST WASN'T BLINDING BUTPURE, PERFECT. AS I STARTEDTO GO TOWARDS THE LIGHT, ICOULD SEE THE OUT--OUTER

EDGE OF IT BEGIN TO SPIRAL.AND I COULDN'T FIGURE OUTWHAT THAT WAS. BUT AS I GOTCLOSER, I COULD SEE IT WAS

THE WORDS OF PRAYERSREVOLVING. THE WORDSBROKE OFF GOING INTO THELIGHT. AND I FOLLOWED INTO

THE LIGHT. NEXT THING I FELTWAS BEING EMBRACED, SAFEAND SECURE. IT FELTWONDERFUL. IT FELT LIKE

TOTAL LOVE. NEXT THING IKNEW I WAS LOOKING DOWN INTHE ROOM WHERE MY BODYWAS. I COULD SEE EVERYONE

WORKING ON ME. I COULDHEAR WHAT THEY WERESAYING. THERE WERE TWONURSES OUTSIDE OF THE ROOM

LOOKING IN. ONE SAID TO THEOTHER, WHY ARE THEYWORKING SO HARD? HE'SGONE. IF THEY DO BRING HIM

BACK, HE'D BE A VEGETABLE. ILATER ON TOLD HER WHAT SHESAID. SHE ABOUT PASSED OUT.THEN I THOUGHT TO MYSELF

WHERE'S DEBBIE? ANDINSTANTLY I WAS IN THE ROOMWHERE SHE WAS. AND I'D JUST GOTTEN

FINISHED WITH THAT PRAYER,UM, YOU KNOW, HE'S YOURS,LORD. BECAUSE I KNEW THATTHAT WAS THE ONLY WAY HE

WAS COMING BACK TO US IFGOD WANTED HIM TO. WHEN SHE DID THAT, IZOOMED RIGHT IN ON HER

FACE. AND WHEN I SAW HERFACE, I SAW EVERY ASPECT OFOUR LIFE TOGETHER FROM THEFIRST DAY WE MET, OUR

MARRIAGE, THE BIRTH OF OURCHILDREN, ALL THE EMOTIONSWE'VE SHARED. I COULDN'TLEAVE HER. I JUST COULDN'T

LEAVE HER. AND I CRIED OUTTO THE LORD. I SAID LORD ILOVE YOU SO MUCH BUTPLEASE LET ME GET BACK. I

SAID MY WIFE NEEDS ME. MYCHILDREN NEED ME SO, SOMUCH. PLEASE LET ME GETBACK.

THE DOCTORS AND NURSESDIDN'T GIVE UP. THEYSHOCKED JIM SO MANY TIMESTHAT THE FLESH ON HIS CHEST

WAS BURNED. THEN THEDOCTORS HEARD AHEARTBEAT. I CAME BACK TO A WORLD

OF PAIN. THEY SHOCKED ME SOMANY TIMES. IT WAS LIKECOMING BACK OUT OF THEWATER. JUST THIS--MY

HEARING CAME BACK, I COULDHEAR THEM TELLING ME ICAN'T BELIEVE IT, HE'S BACK,HE'S BACK. THEY SAID CAN

YOU HEAR ME? AND I TOOKTHAT FIRST BREATH ON MYOWN. HAVE YOU EVER TASTEDHONEYSUCKLE? THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT THAT FIRSTBREATH TASTED LIKE. IT WASSO SWEET, SO WONDERFUL.AND I JUST THANK THE LORD.

JIM WAS ALIVE BUT HISHEART STILL WASN'TFUNCTIONING PROPERLY. THEY PUT HIM INTO A--A

COMA, A MEDICAL--MEDICATEDCOMA. AND, UH, TO ALLOW HISBODY TO HEAL. SO I WASN'TABLE TO TALK TO HIM FOR

DAYS. JIM SPENT THE NEXT 17 DAYSIN INTENSIVE CARE. HEFLAT LINED SEVERAL MORE

TIMES. AND EACH TIME, JESUSASKED HIM A QUESTION. THE SUBSEQUENT TIMESTHAT I ARRESTED AND WOULD

GO TOWARDS THE LIGHT, HEWOULD ASK ARE YOU SURETHIS IS WHAT YOU WANT? ANDEACH TIME I WOULD ASK TO

COME BACK. JIM WOKE UP FROM HISMEDICAL-INDUCED COMA. HISHEART INCREASED IN

FUNCTION FROM 5% TO 30%. HENO LONGER NEEDED A HEARTTRANSPLANT. IT WAS, UH, A LONG

PROCESS, BUT BASICALLY, ITWAS, UH, GOOD TO HEAR HISVOICE AGAIN. VERY GOOD TOHEAR HIS VOICE AGAIN.

HIS DOCTOR IMPLANTED APACEMAKER IN HIS CHEST.JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER,JIM WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT

HOME IN TIME FOR HISDAUGHTER'S GRADUATION.ONE DOCTOR TOLD JIM HEONLY HAD A YEAR TO LIVE.

THAT WAS OVER SEVEN YEARSAGO. IT'S BROUGHT US CLOSERTOGETHER. SO MUCH CLOSER

TOGETHER. UM, WE TALKABOUT THINGS NOW. AND IT--IT'S WHATEVER NEEDS TO BEDONE FOR THE DAY, IT'S DONE.

YOU KNOW, WE DON'T--DON'TFOCUS ON THINGS THAT ARETRIVIAL. JIM KNOWS THAT EVERY

DAY HE HAS WITH HIS FAMILYIS A BLESSING FROM JESUSCHRIST. I TRY TO WITNESS TO AT

LEAST ONE PERSON A DAY. TOLET THEM KNOW THIS ISN'TABOUT ME. IT'S ABOUT THEIRLIFE. AND TO KNOW THAT HE IS

THERE FOR THEM AND HELOVES THEM. WOW. WHAT A POWERFULTESTIMONY. YOU KNOW, JIM IS

PROOF POSITIVE THAT JESUSCHRIST IS THE SAMEYESTERDAY, TODAY, ANDFOREVER. YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT A MANWHO ACTUALLY DIED AND, UH,HE WAS CALLED A RICH MANAND THERE WAS A POOR MAN,

HIS NAME WAS LAZARUS. AND,UH, AT THE TIME OF THE POORMAN'S DEATH, THE DOGS HADTO LICK HIS SORES AND--AND

HIS WOUNDS BUT HE WAS INTHE BOSOM OF ABRAHAM.NOW THIS RICH MAN THATDIED, HE ACTUALLY FOUND

HIMSELF ON THE OTHER SIDEAND HE SAID OH, IF YOU COULDJUST SEND LAZARUS TO TOUCHMY TONGUE. WELL, YOU KNOW

WHAT? ABRAHAM SAID THECHASM IS FIXED. THAT'S WHYWITH THE GOOD NEWS IS WEHAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TODAY

IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THISFREE GIFT THAT COST GODEVERYTHING. I LOVE HOW GODALLOWED JIM TO COME BACK

THOUGH AND IT WASN'T FIXEDFOR HIM. WENT INTO A COMA,THEN A SECOND COMA, ANINDUCED COMA. THEN HE SEES

EVERYTHING WITH DETAIL.AND THIS IS WHAT I--I LOVEABOUT HIS TESTIMONYBECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IN

FIRST CORINTHIAN AND IT'S INTHE 13TH CHAPTER IN THE 13THVERSE AND NOW ABIDE FAITH,HOPE, AND LOVE. BUT THE

GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.AND HIS LOVE WAS FOR HISWIFE AND THEIR--THEIRRELATIONSHIP HAS NEVER

BEEN BETTER. AND I BELIEVE IFYOU LOVE GOD MORE THANYOU LOVE YOUR HUSBAND ORYOUR WIFE, YOU LOVE YOUR

HUSBAND OR YOUR WIFE ORYOUR CHILDREN MORE THANANYONE ELSE. TODAY'S A NEWDAY AND I'VE GOT SOMETHING

I'D LOVE TO GET INTO YOURHANDS. AND, UH, PRAYERPARTNERS ARE GOING TO LEADYOU TO THE LORD. 1-855-759-

0700. COME ON IN, LAURA-LYNN. HMM, YOU KNOW BRIANWHEN YOU WERE TALKING AND

THEN YOU TALKED ABOUTTHAT SCRIPTURE ON LOVE. ALLTHAT WAS GOING THROUGH MYMIND WAS FOR GOD SO LOVED

THE WORLD. YES. THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLYBEGOTTEN SON THAT IF WE

WOULD JUST RECEIVE HIM ANDBELIEVE ON HIM, WE WOULDHAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. YOUKNOW, IF YOU ONLY KNEW ONE

SCRIPTURE FROM THE ENTIREBIBLE, JUST ONE, THAT ONE ISTHE MOST IMPORTANT.BECAUSE WHETHER THERE IS

HEAVEN OR HELL OR--ORWHERE YOUR ETERNITY WILLBE, THE TRUTH IS IS THAT IFYOU'LL JUST RECEIVE JESUS,

IT'S GOING TO SEAL THATETERNITY FOR YOU. AND GODLOVES YOU. HE LOVES YOU. HEHAS A DESTINY AND A PLAN

FOR YOU. IF YOU'RESTRUGGLING TODAY AND IFYOU FEEL THAT CALL IN YOURHEART, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

SURRENDER. IT'S SUCH ANEASY THING. JUST SURRENDER,GIVE IT OVER TO HIM. WHATCOULD IT HURT TO JUST TRUST

GOD WITH YOUR LIFE. HEY, WHY DON'T YOU DOTHAT NOW? THERE'S NEVERBEEN A BETTER TIME THAN

RIGHT NOW. AND THEN RIGHTAFTER THAT, CALL FOR THIS.HEY, LET ME LEAD YOU INPRAYER. IT'S BEEN CALLED

THE SINNER'S PRAYER. IT'SBEEN CALLED THE DISCIPLE'SPRAYER BUT THIS IS THEPRAYER OF SALVATION. JESUS,

I AM A SINNER. WOULD YOUCOME INTO MY LIFE? I GIVEYOU MY PERSONAL PERMISSIONFOR YOUR HEAVENLY

INTERVENTION. MAKE MEWHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE. ITHANK YOU FOR DYING ON THECROSS FOR MY SINS, JESUS.

NOW I THANK YOU FOR GIFT OFETERNAL LIFE. AMEN. AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYEDTHAT PRAYER, CALL US AT

1-855-759-0700. PRAYERPARTNERS ARE STANDING BY. IT'S A NEW DAY.(MUSIC)

HEY, WELCOME TO THISHOPE TO GO. TODAY WE'RETALKING ABOUT BLACKOUT,RESTORING KINGDOM POWER. I

JUST LOVE THE WORD OF GODAND LOVE TO TEACH THATTRUTH TO YOU. LISTEN TOWHAT MATTHEW 9:27 AND 31

SAYS. WHEN JESUS DEPARTEDFROM THERE, TWO BLIND MENFOLLOWED HIM CRYING OUTAND SAYING SON OF DAVID,

HAVE MERCY ON US. ANDWHEN HE HAD COME INTO THEHOUSE, WATCH THIS, THE BLINDMEN CAME TO HIM. AND JESUS

SAID TO THEM, DO YOUBELIEVE THAT I AM ABLE TO DOTHIS? AND THEY SAID TO HIMYEAH, LORD. THEN HE

TOUCHED THEIR EYES SAYINGACCORDING TO YOUR FAITHLET IT BE TO YOU. AND THEIREYES WERE OPENED AND JESUS

STERNLY WARNED THEMSAYING SEE THAT NO ONEKNOWS IT. BUT THEY, WHENTHEY DEPARTED, THEY SPREAD

THE WORD ALL ABOUT THECOUNTRY. IN OTHER WORDS,THEY BLABBED THEIR MOUTH.NOTICE WHAT JESUS DIDN'T

SAY, DO YOU BELIEVE THATYOU CAN DO THIS? DO YOUBELIEVE THAT GOD IS ABLE TODO THIS? THAT'S WHERE WE

STRUGGLE A LOT OF TIMES.THAT'S WHERE YOU'VE GOT TOGET ANCHORED. WHERE YOUBELIEVE THAT GOD IS ABLE TO

DO THIS FOR YOU. NOT FORYOUR NEIGHBOR, YOUR FRIENDOR YOUR COWORKER. MARK9:23, YOU'VE GOT TO WRITE

THIS DOWN IS WHERE THEDISCIPLES WERE TRYING TOCAST OUT A DEMON AND JESUSSAYS IF YOU CAN BELIEVE, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. NOTSOME THINGS, ALL THINGS AREPOSSIBLE TO HIM WHOBELIEVES. IF YOU CAN BELIEVE

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, NOTWORLDLY FANTASY BELIEVING,BIBLE BELIEVING ALL THINGSARE POSSIBLE. THIS IS AN

IMPORTANT POINT. WHY?BECAUSE WHAT IS POSSIBLEFOR ME IS SOLELY POSSIBLE,BRIAN WARREN, ON MY

PERSONAL ABILITY TO BELIEVE.IT MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE FORYOU, IT'S JUST ANILLUSTRATION, DON'T GET

UPSET. BUT IT'S POSSIBLE FORME BECAUSE I BELIEVE. NOWDON'T GET MAD THAT SISTERSO AND SO DOWN THE STREET

OR BROTHER SO AND SO IF YOUCAN'T BELIEVE. I SEE THIS INCANADA ALL THE TIME. FIRSTCORINTHIANS 4:20 SAYS FOR

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT INWORD BUT IN POWER. NOW,I'VE GOT TO ALLOW THE WORDOF GOD TO GOVERN MY LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS, LUNCHBUCKET CHRISTIANITY. THEWORKS AND THE FRUIT THATOUR--OUR LIVES PRODUCE ARE

A DIRECT RESULT OF OURRELATIONSHIP AND OUR HOOKUP WITH JESUS. JOHN 15:4 SAYSI AM THE VINE, YOU ARE THE

BRANCHES. WITHOUT ME, YOUCAN DO NOTHING. THIS IS THESAME REALITY THAT JESUSLIVED AND OPERATED IN.

JESUS SPOKE THE WORD, BUT ITWAS THE FATHER THAT DID THEWORKS. LISTEN TO JOHN 14:10.DO YOU--DO YOU NOT BELIEVE

THAT I AM IN THE FATHER ANDTHE FATHER IS IN ME? THEWORDS THAT I SPEAK TO YOU, IDO NOT SPEAK ON MY OWN

AUTHORITY BUT THE FATHERWHO DWELLS IN ME, WATCHTHIS, DOES THE WORKS. NOWTHE PHARISEES AND

SADDUCEES WERE SO UPSETWITH JESUS, BUT IT WAS THEFATHER THAT WAS DOING ALLTHE WORK. LOOK AT MARK

11:23 FOR ASSUREDLY I SAYTO YOU WHOEVER SAYS TOTHIS MOUNTAIN BE REMOVEDAND CAST INTO THE SEA AND

DOES NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEARTBUT BELIEVES THAT THOSETHINGS WHICH HE SAYS WILLBE DONE, HE WILL HAVE

WHATEVER HE SAYS. YOURBELIEVING IS KEY TO YOURRECEIVING THE PROMISES OFGOD. SECOND CORINTHIAN 1:20

AS I CLOSE. FOR ALL THEPROMISES OF GOD, ALL THEPROMISES ARE YES AND AMENIN CHRIST. THAT MEANS IF YOU

CAN BELIEVE, IT WILL TAKEPLACE. AND THAT IS YOURHOPE TO GO. YOU KNOW, PSALMS 119

VERSE 105 SAYS YOUR WORD ISA LAMP TO MY FEET AND ALIGHT TO MY PATH. I WONDERIF YOUR--YOUR PATH SEEMS A

LITTLE DARK RIGHT NOW. ALLYOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO THEWORD. I LOVE WHAT BRIANWAS SAYING. IT IS KEY THAT

WE HAVE FAITH, THAT WE TURNTO THIS BOOK FOR ALL OF OURANSWERS. BECAUSE IT HAS ANANSWER FOR EVERYTHING

THAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGHAND IT WILL ILLUMINATE YOURPATH. UP NEXT, WE'RETALKING TO CANADA ABOUT

THE AFTERLIFE. HAVE YOU EVER AVOIDEDTHE SUBJECT OF ETERNITYWHEN YOU KNEW YOU SHOULD

HAVE SAID SOMETHING? MY BEST FRIEND'S MOTHERPASSED AWAY, UH, ABOUTFOUR YEARS AGO WITH

CANCER. AND I WENT AND SAWHER ON HER DEATH BED ABOUTTWO WEEKS BEFORE SHEPASSED AWAY AND THIS IS A

FAMILY OF NON BELIEVERS.UH, I HAD--HAD TRIEDREPEATEDLY TO HAVE THECONVERSATION WITH MY

FRIEND ABOUT HEAVEN ANDHELL AND ETERNITY. AT THETIME HIS MOTHER WAS SICKAND, YOU KNOW, ALSO AT THE

TIME I BECAME A CHRISTIANAND HE JUST DIDN'T WANTANYTHING OF IT. SO I LOVETHEIR FAMILY, I RESPECT THEIR

FAMILY, AND I DIDN'T WANT TOGO IN AND STEP OVER THEBOUNDARY SO TO SPEAK. IF YOU MET ROB, YOU'D BE

CERTAIN THAT HE LOVED JESUSAND HE ASKED ME ABOUTETERNITY. HOW CAN YOUFOLLOW A GOD. HOW CAN YOU

BELIEVE, UM, IN LOVE, UM, ANDTHEN TRUST THAT THAT GODOF LOVE WILL ALSO PUNISHPEOPLE ETERNALLY?

CONVERSATION ANDMOREOVER, I DIDN'T WANT TOLOOK AT SOMEONE AND SAY,WELL, ACTUALLY, YOU'RE

DEAD WRONG ABOUT YOURENTIRE UNDERSTANDINGOF CHRISTIANITY. LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP IS

MORE IMPORTANT THANHEAVEN AND HELL. UH, HE STILL DOESN'TBELIEVE IN JESUS. UM, FOR

THAT REASON. HE CAN'TRECONCILE, UM, BIG HUGELOVE AND EXCLUSION. WOW. LAURA-LYNN, YOU

KNOW, WHEN YOU THINKABOUT THOSE MISSEDOPPORTUNITIES AND, UH, IT'SKIND OF LIKE AN ICY NAIL, YOU
