I turned and saw the Earth in turmoil! Wars, death, and terrible sights! Cities fell, and new ones were built! I saw the United States, and a volcano exploding, covering many cities in darkness! I looked on and saw the collapse of our government as we know it. I saw people killing for food and water, horrible sights! I saw what seemed to be a giant explosion in the Earth’s atmosphere, and much land was destroyed!

I looked on and saw a new type of people, younger and of a peaceful nature. Only a few cities were left, but these people seemed to be content. “It is time for you to go,” I heard again! But I wanted to see more!

Then the doors opened and I felt myself almost carried down the hallway. I passed through the doors of the city and felt myself shooting back to Earth through this tunnel I had come through! Faster I went, unable to stop! I entered the atmosphere of Earth, and saw the river below. I saw my body still lying there motionless!

I experienced an electric shock so tremendous I felt my body jump! I opened my eyes and saw the trees above me, and the skyline. Then, Oh God, the pain! I was struggling for every breath, choking on my own blood!

I managed to roll onto my stomach. The pain was as much as I could bear! I looked at the sky and saw the sun was lower than I remembered. I looked at my watch. It was 5:30 in the afternoon! My only thoughts were about how I could get help. I noticed my rifle was not far from me, still attached to the rope I had tied around my waist. I began pulling it toward me. I managed to grab hold of the barrel and pulled it up to me. I fired a shot about every ten minutes hoping someone would come.

It was getting late, and I knew I would not survive much longer, so I began crawling on my stomach, pulling myself along with the stock of my rifle. I managed to crawl up a trail that ran down to the river. As I crawled through thick brush and briar patches, the pain was so great I passed out many times. I wanted to give up because I was so tired, and in so much pain. I knew I had to make it at least to somewhere that I could be found, or so I hoped! I looked out in front of me and saw the road I lived on through the trees. I could hear sounds in the distance!

“Yes, thank you God,” I thought to myself! I finally found myself at the road and began a feeble cry for help. I was too exhausted though, and just lay there in the road. My father-in-law was returning from work and found me lying in the road. “It’s all right,” I heard him say. “Help is on the way.”

That was the last I remembered until I saw the lights inside the hospital Emergency Room. A doctor stood by my feet, asking “Can you feel this?” “Feel what?” I asked. He had been examining my feet and legs with a sharp instrument. I was paralysed! He said, “We are sending you by ambulance to a hospital that can handle your injuries.”

Whether because of the pain or the medication, I was out like a light. The next afternoon I awoke to find two doctors standing at the foot of my hospital bed. They introduced themselves and explained to me that I must undergo surgery at once. Some bones in my back were broken, and they were putting pressure on my spinal nerves, causing paralysis. Then I heard the warning I had heard before!

“Do not let them perform surgery, or you will never walk again!” I understood completely, but knew they would not. I told them I must see my wife and daughter first! My wife arrived with my daughter shortly after the doctor’s visit. I told her what they had said. She advised me that I must realise they were only doing what was necessary to help me! I did not know how to tell her what I had experienced! I tried to tell her it was my belief that I should not be operated on. Although she disagreed, she honoured my wishes. When the doctors returned and I told them of my decision, they were very concerned. I listened to lecture after lecture!

That night I lay upon my bed and wept sorely. Was I insane? What was I doing? A light began to fill my room. “You will be well,” I heard a voice say. Then it was gone! I composed myself and dozed off to sleep. Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months.

Then one morning I felt a tingling in my feet! I was overcome with joy! I told the nurse I wanted to get up and walk! I knew I was healed without a doubt!

A few hours later I was taken down to the Physical Therapy room. They carried me down and raised me up to a vertical position. The nurse helped me to stand in front of a set of parallel bars. I gripped the bars and placed my feet firmly on the floor. One step! Two steps!

“My God, he’s walking!” the nurses said to each other. The next few days were hard. I took many trips to Physical Therapy, and had numerous x-rays done. My wife and family were all amazed, yet I knew! I had been told! The rest had to be true as well!

My doctor was more amazed when he found no bones pressing on my spinal nerve! He said, “This is not normal! It seems that a higher power has done for you what we were going to try and correct with surgery! I have never seen anything like this before!”

Since that day, my life has changed, and I have been able to help others in ways I never dreamed. I wanted to share this with everyone, as it is what has led me onward in my quest for Truth!
