What just happened?

What do you remember?

I was in bed. I woke up with this really bad heart burn, and I was having a hard time breathing. The room got dark, then there was this light, and then I was here.

There was silence for a time. “Are you still there?”

I am with you.

Where am I?

A place of transition. How do you feel?

I feel ok. Well, actually I feel really good. Better than I have in years.

Good. Any questions before we begin?

Begin what? Who are you?

Call me Josh. It’s short for Joshua or more properly Yeshua. My given name at birth was Yeshua Ben Yosef. And what we are to begin is the opening of the books.

What books? What’s going on here, what’s happened to me?

Simply put, you died. The books are the lambs book of life and the record of your life.

You mean judgment day and all that crap? I don’t believe in that. I don’t believe in a white haired old man in the sky watching over me and keeping track of my every deed.

You don’t have to believe in him. He believes in you.
