“Christ, the Lord, is risen today!” – so every litany declares on Easter Morning. His resurrection is fresh, not merely historical. It transcends time and space. It has a quantum dimension to it. What happened “there” can happen “here.” What happened “then” can happen “now.” It is not merely the ressurection of Christ that is celebrated. In him we all die, and in him we are all made alive. On Easter, we celebrate the triumph of life over death. We share in the prospects of his life. After the resurrection, it was said that saints who had gone on to their death were seen walking the streets of Jerusalem. His life means our life. And resurrections are still happening.
Twelve hours had passed since Fatuma had died. Fatuma recalls the experience as strange, “…I found myself in my body … I sat up in my bed and started asking, ‘What is this? What’s happening? What’s going on?’ Everybody was surprised. Someone said, ‘A Pentecostal man can call back a dead soul to a body? If this is real, then we all will become Christians.’ They were shouting.”
During the time Fatuma was absent from the body, she is said to have experienced some wonderful glimpses not only of Heaven, but also of family members who had gone before. CBN carried a video report of the remarkable story. Watch the amazing video on the CBN website.A Joel Ministry Report in collaboration with Dan Reany and Aimee Herd, of the 700 Club
