Inside Out 16: Flight to Heaven
The only survivor of a horrific plane crash, Dale was hovering between life and death when he had a wondrous experience of heaven. What he saw, what he heard, and what he learned there continues to ripple through his life and touch others.
I spent almost two hours visiting with Dale a few days ago, and I was admittedly a bit skeptical at first.
But I came away from this conversation fully convinced he’s not sharing his story for the publicity, notoriety, or the money.
In fact he kept quiet about his experience for more than 40 years. At the urging of his family... and more importantly the Lord… he finally agreed to put it in writing on two conditions:
*God would be glorified and not simply the experience itself
*The only way of reaching heaven-namely the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ- would be the main focus.
The name of the book is Flight to Heaven.
I was moved even more by the man than I was by the amazing story.
And that’s saying a lot.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV) But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
