Boy, 4, says angels sang to him while lifeless
World Net Daily ^ | February 19, 2011 | WND

Posted on 02/19/2011 9:01:23 PM PST by bogusname

It was the kind of nightmare every parent fears. A wrongly diagnosed illness. Another wrongly diagnosed illness. Then a lifeless 4-year-old boy rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery for a an appendix that had ruptured five days earlier. When it was all over, Colton survived and recovered. But that was just the beginning of the amazing saga. Four months later, Colton began telling his parents things he could not have known. "Mom, I have two sisters," he said. "You had a baby die in your tummy didn't you?"

I don’t doubt this in the least. When my grandson was a pre-schooler, he fell out of his treehouse which was about 10-15 ft from the ground. My daughter was watching and she just knew he was severely injured. When she got out there, he was fine. He looked at her and said that his guardian angel caught him. A few months after that, he told her that he had seen the angel again and was told that was the last time he would see her but she would always be around him. My mom was the same way. We all think this ability comes from my great grandmother who was a Cherokee Indian. Who knows???

You do know, I hope, that you can ask the admin moderator or the religion moderator to fix your double title? Right?

I suggest that every Christian read the book “Evidence of the Afterlife” by Dr. Jeffrey Long — great book with stories just like this of NDEs (Near Death Experiences).

Over the years I read a number of books on NDE’s and found the ones of children very believable. I am a Catholic Christian and can find no fault is believing these things can happen.

I know of unexplained experiences people have had in their lives that make you shake your head in wonder.

Had my own near death experience in an ambulance while having a heart attack. Had a shrink tell me it was because of a lack of oxygen to the brain. I wonder how he’d explain this 4 year old child’s experience. Some people are just too smart for their own good.

Also, concerning this story, it convinces me that all the babies murdered every year are in Heaven.

I had a ruptured appendix many moons ago and it took some time to recover. After the x-ray I witnessed an Angel near me at my side, immediate surgery was ordered. I recovered and will not talk about it.

Have you read that book? Some of the medical statistics I skimmed over. But the NDE stories are fascinating. People watching their own operations.

One had an angel beside every doctor and nurse in the OR.

The doctor later told the patient that he had never had an operation, although difficult, go so smoothly.

No wonder with an angel guiding his hands!

Praise God.

I also had a ruptured appendix. I just thought I had the flu since all my kids had just experienced the flu. When I stopped at the doctor’s office after dropping off two children and with two others in tow, the doctor said — “You are going to the hospital.” I nearly jumped off the table when he touched my abdomen in a certain place. But of course, the denial in me said, “I can’t, I’ve got kids with me.”

He responded, “We’ll call your husband for the kids, the ambulance is here for you.”

Actually I can. This Angel was at the foot of my “cart”. I asked my brother if he could see her. He said no.

I read the above book about the near death experiences in children many years ago. I remember it being very interesting. I should give it a reread.

I like the show "I Survived" on the Biography Channel and now they've added "I Survived: Beyond and Back" which is really interesting. On on of them I saw a few weeks back, one guy had a "dark" near death experience.

Thanks for the post

I spent more than two weeks with this dilemma. My church leaders came and prayed for me. I held out until I was green. Thank GOD I bailed hay as a kid.

I have not read any in a few years but I have read quite a few in the past. When people are declaired dead and can describe what others were saying and doing in another room, there’s just no explanation for it.

They say they see relatives who tell them it’s ‘not your time yet, to go back’ and they really don’t want to!.

People have tried to say it’s something happening in the brain but that won’t explain seeing and hearing things in another room. Frankly, it encourages FAITH in my opinion.

Wow—gotta read that book! One book that so gripped me is “90 Minutes in Heaven”...by Don Piper. He survived a horrible auto accident but was declared dead on the scene.
He recalls his experience in Heaven.

I once heard a nurse who worked in Pediatrics tell a story about a little boy who “coded” and was successfully resuscitated. He later told her “Jesus told me to come back.” The nurse who told the story was Jewish.

That is so facinating. Please describe the angel. My sister who has since past, while having surgery, told me she was above herself and saw the surgeon operating on her, but never said anything about seeing another being.

I had an out of body experience in the ER on Christmas day back in the 70’s. I was up around the ceiling watching the nurses trying to get the IV into my arm and I could look over into the hall too - as if the ceiling didn’t exist for me. When I came back into my body one of the nurses asked if I needed more pain medicine and I said I didn’t feel any pain at all now.

It’s a calm. I knew I was in trouble. I looked up at a moment of clarity and my brother was next to me. At the foot of my gurney was a presence in the form of a transparent being. I asked if he could see it. I woke up 28 hours later.

Jesus says in Matthew 18:10: "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."

The NIV note explains that Jesus is not talking just about children, but about "God's people in general".

Have always been fascinated by this statement of our Lord, and know He does not lie!

Had a shrink tell me it was because of a lack of oxygen to the brain...remember watching a PBS show on NDE's a while back - some shrink was leading the charge at "debunking" the idea with the same story - lack of oxygen to the brain - but he did acknowledge that the experience as life ebbed - the bright light, peaceful feeling, reunions with lost loved ones - was quite pleasant, and ended up by saying something like "it really is nice for nature to arrange things like that as death comes" - I'm still laughing - if you're going to admit "nature" can act purposefully to comfort man, why not go all the way and give the credit to "God".....

When people ask me why we stopped at one child - I tell them we didn’t, we have two. The first is in Heaven and we have not me him or her yet. But we will, and what a glorious reunion that will be, because to us it will be as we have known the child all our lives.

“he talked about Armageddon and how God told him his father would fight in the final battle.”

Would that mean that Armageddon will occur within his father’s lifetime, or that his father will be resurrected before Armageddon?

The Heaven John wrote about in the Bible is so full of wonders and mysteries that in our wildest dreams we could not imagine it. Certainly Heaven contains many surprises which we will never be able to comprehend in this life with our puny little mortal human brains.

I heard it said once that, - “as a Christian, the day I die will be the best day I’ve ever lived. But it won’t be the best I will ever live.”

Of course not,

I doubt him because he sold it.

Had this guy been give the ten commandants he’d have sold them as a series of novels.

I already have a book that assures me of the after life.

Hmmmm, then I take it you pretty much stay away from Bible Book Stores and your church library if it has one. After all, there is no need to read others testimonies when you already know the truth.

I was taking pictures of the flowers at the funeral home where my dad was. When we got them developed, my daughter showed us the angel in the picture. He was standing near the casket. Very odd.

I know what you mean. I have had a few of those experiences myself.

The only explanation for me was God.

Be very careful. A`persona with GOD is a one on one. Folks should never question where a person stands. He says not to do this. It is a strange and 5th world that some vaguely receive. It may be a tell, it will be attacked.

If that is your criteria for truth and honesty then you’ll definitely have problems with the Bible....ots been a runaway best seller for hundreds of years.... :)

(just teasing, I think I know what your difficulty is with this story...I felt the same pause whe I read the line)
