Visions of and Visits to a Crystal Golden City in Heaven
Heaven seems to be a “place!” Many people who had a “Near Death Experience” either had a glimpse of Heaven, or went on an actual visit to Heaven! Many who saw it from the outside, said that it looked like a gigantic gorgeous shining Crystal Golden City! Most of them either shot through some kind of tunnel or vortex, or at incredible speeds through the Universe, the stars and galaxies whizzing by. Following are some excerpts of some of these people’s experiences!

Heart Patient Didn’t Quite Make It To A Silver Golden City!
(Article by Zandra Sharpe in Sidney Australia, Australia Newspaper)
Mr. Doug Harris believes he has made the journey from life to death, yet lived to tell the tale. For 4 1/2 hours he was pivoting on that fine live-or-die line. But as doctors battled on to save him, he watched proceedings from above, in what must be one of the most remarkable outer body experiences on record. Now he’s writing a book with the working title of “The Timeless Future” on his experience.
“There is obviously some place for us beyond this earth, and it is so peaceful there’s nothing to fear!”–that’s Mr. Harris’ message. He was in Manly Hospital for follow-up treatment for cancer when the drama began. Without warning he had cardiac arrest.
“I just became dizzy, couldn’t get my breath,then passed out, had a complete blackout.”
A team of 5 doctors began what was to be an epic fight to save him. “The strange thing is that usually they give up trying after 30 minutes,” he said. “Afterwards, none of them could tell me why they kept on going all that time.” But as doctors worked, Mr. Harris’ outer body experience began.
“I recall being in the top left corner of the intensive care room looking down at myself and the team of doctors. I kept thinking what are these people doing to me? I remember being quite surprised, but I was completely disembodied and had no tactile sense and no sense of smell.”
“I was just a thought form, an idea, a spirit form, if you like–watching what they were doing to my physical body.” His next recollection is still vivid. “I felt three things simultaneously–a sudden sense of speed, a sense of cold and a sense of traveling,” he said.
“I was in some kind of dun-colored ditch, like a stormwater drain, traveling at high speed a few inches above the ground. I felt no fear, only a great loneliness. I was thinking of my family and was worried for their welfare. But I wanted somehow to let them know not to worry on my account, not to be unhappy about my going.
“Then miles away appeared to be a city. It was like looking at Sidney from the wrong end of a telescope. It was bathed in a silver gold light. It was very bright and the buildings were spherical, triangular and conical, but without windows or doors. When I saw it, I was eager to be in it. I was anticipating something beautiful.” “I felt I was part of that and just had to get there.”
But at that point his headlong flight was stopped. “I felt a pull on my ankles, I stopped, then began going back the way I had come–backwards–again at high speed away from the City. I remember thinking, ‘I didn’t quite make it’.”
When he felt the pressure on his ankles, Mr. Harris said he sensed it was his wife. “She was calling me back–she wouldn’t let me die. Then I was back in the intensive care unit.”
His main impression was one of silence.
“I have never heard a silence so loud. It is hard to imagine a stillness, a silence like it,–and the stillness was most impressive.”
The Crystal City
After Dannion Brinkley died, he went at high speed up through different levels, surrounded by glowing mists. He saw energy fields, flowing like rivers or looking like lakes and streams. Through the mists he could see deep blue velvet mountains, that were not jagged but round and lovely. On the mountainslopes he could see lights, that looked like dwellings that turn on their lights at dusk. He said that he and his angelic companion were flying in a way that he had assumed that angels fly. He says:
“As wingless birds we shot into a city of cathedrals. These cathedrals were entirely made of a crystal-like substance that glowed with a bright light from within. We stood before such a cathedral and I felt small and unimportant through this architectonic wonder. This thing was clearly constructed by angels to show the greatness of God, I thought. The building had peaks that were as high as those of the great cathedrals in France and walls as massive and strong as those of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. These buildings had NO RELATIONSHIP with any specific RELIGION*–they were monuments for the glory of God. I was filled with awe. This place had a power that seemed to vibrate through the air…”
*Some may quote Revelation 21:22 here, where John describes the Heavenly City during HIS Near Death Experience: “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.”
Temples are religious places of worship! That means: There are NO religions in Heaven anymore! The Angels and spirits worship God without temples, as Jesus taught us already we should do here too! “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24. So no temples, yes! But there certainly ARE buildings and constructions to the glory of God! And so what if some look like cathedrals?
A City with a Crystal Boulevard…bathing in brilliant light
“The angel and I walked on up a hill. He opened a beautiful gate and I went inside, where I stood in a very bright yellow light. There were no labels. No one asked me to which church I belonged, they only invited me to come in at once. I looked into a room that was absolutely bathing in light and I saw what I considered as the light of the Father. It was so bright that I had to turn my eyes away. As I did that, I could see that the light reflected a crystal boulevard that ran through the center of a city. I saw many other things, but one of the most interesting was that prayers flowed through this heavenly world as beams of light. It was a beautiful sight to see what became of our prayers.”
12 Pearly Gates and Streets of Gold
“At a certain instant I went through a dark place and found myself in the presence of the Lord. I was there! Believe it or not, but I stood before the gates that led straight into Heaven! The gates were made of twelve gigantic pearls that seemed to glow. The streets within these gates were gold colored and the walls of the buildings sparkled so bright that I could hardly look at it. I saw a being of light whom I think was Jesus. I couldn’t see His face, but he glowed gloriously and bright. Even though I couldn’t look at him, I could feel the glow, so strong was it. I went to a garden full of green grass, flowers and fruit trees. If someone plucked an apple for example, the apple grew right back again..”
A City Of Light
“Last in the trinity was a city of light, like unto John’s holy city in the Book of Revelation. I saw the same skyline as before, but this time it was pure gold – with colors like precious gems, transparent glass, crystal clear. All who walked through the city brought glory and honor into it. Harmony and order prevailed, and the residents lived joyfully, creating that which brought forth beauty and fulfillment – a place of perfect peace, the “peace that passeth understanding.”
