A message of Hope from Ben Breedlove

Ben Breedlove was an internet YouTube blogger who posted a variety of videos covering everything dating to relationships and advice. He also had a heart condition that ultimately led to his death at age 18 of cardiac arrest. Before he died, he posted a video introducing himself and describing a near death experience he had as a result of the condition. At the end he tells the audience “Do you believe in Angels or God? I do.” Other media outlets have edited out many of the religious elements, but Glenn aired it in it’s entirety.

Watch the amazing video below along with Glenn’s intro:

    I feel sorry anyone who does not believe that God has touched this fine young man…sent a shiver up my spine…

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil, for though art with me.—The valley or low spot of the shadow.  Shadows are scary things at times but they cannot harm you if you are a Christian.  Shadows cannot exist if there is no light behind them to make them visible.

    Glad you played the complete video Glen. God Bless you! Couldn’t help my 42 year old self from crying as I watched it. Didn’t have an experience like Ben. Just two years ago I was laying in the hospital with a 100% block just before my heart and a 75% somewhere else. When I was coming too the doctor said he couldn’t believe I was still alive. Don’t even remember what I said. I just remember my aunt, mother and children all around me in the hall crying as I was coming to. Not once! Even for a second did I ever feel fear. And still don’t! I’m on hospice, have 40% of my heart working, and a 100% faith in the Lord. And if I shouldn’t wake in the morning when your show starts. God bless you and all of the people around you!

      I’ll keep you in my prayers that God would grant you the grace of healing and in all things that you receive all his good gifts.  May he grant grace to all of his who are in need.  God bless

    Glenn, thanks for showing Ben’s story on your program yesterday. All of the fighting we do over politics, it shows there are more important things to worry about. More important things such as life. Too many times we take it for granted. God is always there for us, all we have to do is ask.

    Glenn, Thank you for bringing Ben’s story to my attention yesterday. What a blessing and dynamic way to point out that God is still talking to us, and all we have to do is listen and respond to his voice. Thank you…Thank you. May God Bless Ben and you and your staff for sharing this vitally important message from God.  – Charlie Tew, LVBC, Raleigh, NC

    I know exactly what you are talking about Glenn, about God’s Mighty right hand and His Holy Arm.  In May of 2010, after my husband and I miscarried, he had to literally make me go outside, so we went for a drive to Northern Kentucky and I was in so much distress from being chased and terrorized along with also miscarrying that I thought I was going out of my mind with fear and anxiety.  Just when he turned the car around to go south, back to our home, he shouted, Look Up!  I did and I wished I would have had my camera.  In the sky right above us, we saw a cloud shaped exactly like a muscular flexed strong arm with a clenched fist turned up as if one were pumping iron. 

    The amazing thing was that it appeared as if the whole arm were covered with a long sleeve like you’d see from a royal robe.  And we knew it was the right arm of Jesus, because of the angle at which the arm hung and the hand flexed.  I knew it was Jesus telling me personally that He knew..,He saw it all, all these years, and that He was here right now to deliver me and set me on a rock.  So when I get scared now, especially when I see so many Barbie Dolls and Ken Dolls losing their heads, I just call on the name of Jesus, which is like a strong tower of safety and I think of that mighty right hand and Holy Arm that has always gotten Him the Victory.  And now He will give us all the victory in the end and will establish His Kingdom on the earth very soon. 

    Also, I wanted to tell you about something that I read a while ago.  It was from a Book about heaven by Mary Katherine Baxter called Divine Revelation of Heaven.  In it, she describes being taken to heaven by Jesus to see it and give an end time testimony to us here on earth.  One of the many things she sees is a very tall King Solomon as well as Father Abraham sitting in the presence of God on a lovely park bench somewhere in heaven.  She described him as having the presence of a man of ancient wisdom in appearance but with the face of a young man.  His hair and beard were pure white as they were while he was on earth, but that in heaven his hair and beard were made not of hair but of spun diamonds.  This was a part of his physical makeup in heaven and was reflective of how God saw him in his wisdom that was lived out while on the earth.  His beard represented great wisdom, remember the oil that flowed down from Aaron’s beard, the oil of unity between the saints?  It is the unity of the spirit that is achieved through the bond of peace. 

    Those who grey early genetically are actually manifesting the beginning of their eternal crown, if only they realized this and followed Jesus with their whole hearts.  In other words, they are already being crowned while down here during this life, and it is manifesting through their very genetic makeup.  Did you grey early Glenn?  You may already be manifesting a part of your inheritance.  I know you are a committed believer.  Keep growing in wisdom Glenn, grow in wisdom!!!!

    May we truly “prepare and be amazed at the power of GOD!”  This week – a miracle happened in our family after 20  years of prayer. My son said that he will stay in rehab until they say he can go home – healed and ready to live his life in sobriety.

    This is an amazing video. In high school I had the euphoric experience of watching my body rise up as I recovered from exploratory brain surgery for epilepsy(later found out it was a tumor), an amazing feeling. A feeling so strong that it is hard to decide to stay here on earth or let yourself go. RIP Ben.

    Glenn I don’t know if you will read this or any of your staff will, but I have been trying to avoid this video for sometime now as in November of 2011 my 12 year old daughter died from a fight with brain cancer and for months before that I was really doubting God and even if he really existed as not only was I losing my child I lost my business that I started 3 years before, lost my home, & my two cars, as well as I have my wife and two other boys to take care of and a baby on the way due this April.  So its been hard to even wonder why we go through all of this….but this video did something to me today it shocked faith back into me and I know my little girl is with God.  Thank You

      Doug, I can not even imagine your pain. I can only think that God took her home with him and she is no longer in pain. I wish you the best in your attempt to take care of the rest of your family. God bless you and be with you.

      Doug, Get the book, “Heaven is for Real,” and read it.  It will fill in some of the holes in Ben’s story and fill you with wonder and joy that your daughter is in a much better place waiting for you, your wife and her brothers to join her.  It’s so hard to conceive of, but death does not have the same sting on the other side of eternity if we belong to Jesus. 

      May God blessd you and your family.  Thanks for your candor and being so real with the rest of us on your post.

        I agree. I believe every person in the world should read the book, “Heaven Is For Real”. And I will be praying for Doug and his family. God bless Glenn for promoting this video.

          WTH? why should people read Heaven is for real when God gave us the Bible, written by God?  Forget the other garbage written by men and women, read the Bible written by God who made Heaven…I’m just saying… I don’t need a person telling me Heaven is real, believe in the God who made it…There is a story in the Bible about Lazarus and a rich man – Lazarus went to Heaven and the rich man went to hell, and the rich man says “please let me tell my family to turn from their ways so they don’t end up with me” and Jesus say NOT EVEN IF A PERSON RETURNS FROM THE DEAD WILL PEOPLE BELIEVE IN HEAVEN…this is a hoax story meant to turn people away from God, not to God…the reason you want to believe in God through Jesus Christ is so you can AVOID hell, not get to Heaven…believe in Christ, repent from you sins, and then you will go to Heaven, too many false conversions out there, I was one of them…but now I know the Way, and the Truth, and the Life (Jesus, John 14:6)

            I am Catholic by birth and raising.  I turned away from the church by my ignorance & selfishness.  I did things I look back on & wonder how I could have continued to live so long in lies, acts, and so many other sins I could no longer change. I am in my “Golden Years” – 62 and I don’t have much – but I do have a good husband, 2 wonderful children & their families, a house, and creatures great & small!  But everday I think & think about dying, God, is heaven real?  Certainly because of my past I can never reach that place reserved for the people who have given their lives unselfishly, totally to the Lord.  2 years ago I went & talked to a priest, he helped me so much, but I feel that I can still not live up to the expectations we talked about.  I don’t know where to turn now & feel the priest will be so disappointed in me.  I wondered at Ben & his story – but how can I even hope for the joy he found!!  I plan on reading the book “Heaven Is For Real”, and thank you, Ben, for 1 more thought-provoking day!! Thank you, Glenn, for SO MANY of your stories.  To me, you are an inspiration!

            Pam- it’s not about being “good enough” for God. We can never measure up to His perfect standards but, by the blood of Christ shed for us on that cross. God isn’t keeping a tally of all your goods vs. bads. He is waiting for us to put our faith in His Son. Run to Jesus and walk with him daily. He will be your personal Lord and Savior. All you have to do is accept the free gift. You don’t need to read the heaven is real book you just need to read the Bible. Read Romans over and over and over again okay? Praying for you Pam, Tim in CA.

            Hi Pam, Please go back to the Priest, I promise he will not be disappointed in you, Jesus has sent him to help and heal you. None of us are good enough but it is what is in your heart, as a Catholic Jesus has given you a way thru the Priest to heal and come back to him, GO, he is waiting for you. I will say a Rosary for you, I wish I could tell you all that happened to me but God showed me as he did this young man and I had fallen away from my faith, but I too felt as you that I had let God down and because of that ruined my life and the lives of my 2 daughters, I tried to commit suicide and I was so despondent I really wanted to just die, I spent 27 days in a deep coma near death, at one point my heart stopped and I was gone for 11 minutes, I went into the light, the light was so comforting and awesome there are no earthly words to describe it, I knew immediately it was the Lord, I didn’t want to leave, but somehow I knew I had to come back, I remember saying to the Lord, “Lord, I have to go back for my girls, the next thing I remember is pulling with every ounce of strength I had and then waking up at 2:am on Easter Morning, I like you was scared to death to go tell the Priest in confession what I had done, the Priest never made me feel bad he laid his hands on my head and Blessed me and the things he said could have only come from CHRIST as he could not have known about them. I have definitely made this too long. but please don’t despair Our GOD is merciful and loving but we have to come to him. GO, he is waiting for you.

            Amen my brother b s…that is one of my 2 life verses John 14:6 and John 3:3  “Unless a man is “BORN AGAIN” he can not enter the kingdom of God.”
            It took me till I was 44 yrs. of age, then I finally had the light bulb go on.
            I too agree that the only reference we should be using is “THE WORD” nothing more and nothing less.
            I pray for Glenn that he will come to the revelation of the one true God and leave the cults behind…I know God is truly using him and he will eventually turn and see the true light and truth especially with all the evangelical godly peole he surrounds himself with. like Robison, Barton & Haggi. That’s no coincidence…they are divine appointments.

        Amen! That is why we cannot question when a child or baby passes on to that Better Place, because SO many are Saved while others are Not.. I have known one who WAS saved, and yet her mother was taken very young after getting this child through also Brain cancer at the age of 5, after a period of about 8 years and finally an all clear, after Much Therapy and now a forever Handicapped Teenager, her Mother was Taken at age 38. When it was asked why would God do this, I said because She, Her Mother Needed Her Reward, and by the Grace of God she Received it. She at least knew her daughter would be fine, as she IS today, and is now 22 and going to College. BUT>>>The part of her brain that was damaged when she had the tumor/cancer removed and then had to undergo much chemo, destroyed her ability to feel emotions, so that at her Mothers Funeral she asked her father if she could “set him up” on a date with one of her teachers. Her Grandmother, who had just lost her ONLY CHILD, Her Mother at 38, was so angry, but I asked her..”don’t You think This Child has been through enough? WHY Should she Now have to Feel the Pain of losing her Mother? God works in Mysterious ways, But…they aren’t Mysterious at all, it”S Just that when he said not to question, THERE IS a reason, This is One of THOSE lessons, if only we KEEP Faith and Our Eyes and Our Hearts Open. Sometimes it Is Revealed as to some “whys”…this was and remains One of those Lessons and I Believe that my niece DID Receive Her Reward, even though she died at 38, after getting her daughter through all that cancer and everything else, She got Pancreatic Cancer and was gone FROM THIS World at 38, in 3 months, but she worked Tiredlessly for over 8 years To Give HER daughter a chance at Life After Brain Cancer. It is when you SEE things like this and Other Tragedies and Realize that for ALL the Tragedy also comes Blessings, sometimes we get to see them sometimes we Never do. Enter in….Faith. I KNOW SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE.

          We learn from the book of Job to endure. And although we do not understand why God does what He does, He does what He does for the best. The moment we take our last breath and we enter eternity at that instant we will understand it all.

      I’m sorry to hear of the death of your dear little girl. I truly believe that children are taken to be with the LORD and that includes unborn ones (King David believed this too). However, for adults, that’s a different story. Your job now, that is if you haven’t already, is to accept what the LORD expects us to do (believe in Him), and you will most assurdly be with your precious little girl again when it’s your time to go home.

      Here are several books that I’ve read and which have been helpful to me (the Bible of course is the first and by far the most important one). Akiane, her life, her art, her poetry. To Hell and Back by Maurice S. Rawlings, M.D. Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. For an astounding book about an Olympic runner and WW2 POW who went through hell on earth, read Unbroken. A WW2 Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand.

      With regards to the world we live in, you are right it is a broken one full of trials and heartaches. Sometimes our trials or difficult circumstances are a refining process that we must endure (with the LORD’s help of course) in order to help others who are not as strong as we are. Our LORD said he would come back to make right what the rebellion of sin has destroyed. He kept His promise by coming the first time and He will certainly keep His promise to return.

      Hello Doug, although of course I do not know you, I feel your pain. But there IS something you have got to know. That 18 year old Man, he Knew why he was Not afraid, because he got to see a glimpse of the Other Side, the Place promised to us and the Place that Does EXIST, a BETTER Place, with NO pain, No worries, No stresses, No Health Problems, NO SUFFERING of ANY Kind. Its a Beautiful PEACEFUL place, and if others want to try and say it doesn’t exist, it’s just something that Happens when our Brains or bodies don’t have enough OXYGEN? Or whatever Excuse they TRY to attribute it to, those who Believe that are MISSING OUT….your Daughter IS IN A BETTER PLACE, and although it would take so much to write here to tell you WHY I Know This is True, please believe me and know that THAT PLACE EXISTS. I believe that since even as a child I was always a Spiritual person, used to be called an Old Soul in a childs body, but since I can remember I have always felt every one elses pain and have been Such an animal Lover too, always feeling that They have always been so underappreciated for ALL the Love they give, without asking for much of anything really. But back to That Special Place, I have come to realize that we are here for 2 reasons, we are Taught and we Teach. We have got to be open to really Seeing what “he” wants us to see. I have, and I did Not have a near death experience, but I Have been Blessed with HAVING My eyes wide open and being Blessed enough to have had “experiences” that I have tried to share especially when I see People who Need to Know that there is ANOTHER “side” that IS Peaceful and Beautiful and does NOT contain ANY of this Lifes Worries or pains or Stresses we ALL have here, no matter What “station” in This life ANY of us are, you can see that what one has Materially DOES NOT bring automatic Happiness, nor does it give you a pass from Sickness, sadness, pain, or SO many other things that cause us to Want that OTHER side or at the VERY least NOT FEAR it, not to Ever Fear Death, because through death our sins are Forgiven. Now you would have asked as I have all my life, what sins could a baby or child have that They would need forgiveness? None of course. But it cannot be questioned why babies and children die while others live to be very old. We do not know why, BUT “He” does, He IS Christ, and I have lived long enough to have seen Some of these terrible things and understand later why That Particular time< Years later, actually WAS a Better TIME. So sorry, either this website is acting up or my computer, so this is not coming out as clearly as I had hoped. Also by now I could have given you a "glimpse" of why I say I KNOW this Place exists, but Please believe me, it could be 20 years from now, and maybe never< IF You Are to be BLESSED AS I have been to See or Feel these things are true, and I hope you do, then You too will understand and FIND Comfort in knowing that your daughter is SO Much Better NOW. Remember this< TIME there is NOT the SAME as Time Here…think about that, she will Not have to Feel ANY MORE PAIN Nor WILL SHE Feel the TIME that passes before you see her again. I have been called morbid by my husband because he thinks I have a death wish, I certainly DO NOT. God The Father Gave Us Life and ONLY HE can take it. I have just been blessed enough to have SEEN and Know this BETTER place Is Real. Please Have Faith and Know This is True. No matter how much he will NOT give you More than you can bare. Faith as You said, is Back into you. Keep That Faith, and Trust in Him. Take care of your family and Trust Your Daughter IS IN a BETTER Place. There is SO much I could tell you but this site or my computer is acting up, and hopefully later I can post more. Remember also, It is Not what We Have, It Is what we DO with what we have. Material things? NO value, Love and Health and Peace and Giving? Now Those are Worth More than ANYTHING else. Cannot BUY ANY of that. We have ALL got to be Thankful for what we DO have. That goes for the Time we've been Blessed to have with ALL OF Gods people and creatures HE Created for Us. You are strong now, Because YOU HAVE FAITH! Keep it.

      Dear Doug…I don’t know if we are relatives or not. My name is Marvin Kirchner. Whether we are or not is irrelevant. If you believe in God in and through Jesus Christ, we are brothers in the Lord. My “epiphany” came under much different circumstances but they were, non-the-less, just as striking to me. For me it came as a result of a challenge to my faith from a false religion that challenged teachings about God that I had always believed. These challenges brought doubts into my mind so I sought out God in His Word, The Bible. Things came to a head one night before I knew I was going to have to either agree with my challenger or defend God and His Word. The night before my anticipated encounter with my challenger, I had a prior encounter with God who spoke to me using His Word to show me who He really was. It was in a way that destroyed who I was but then through forgiveness and salvation showed me that I had died with Him and now I live in Him and He in me. The faith I held onto was Him holding unto me. I was right, my challenger was wrong. He showed me by the simple words, “I AM” that the one who gave his life for me reached out his hand in love to save me. HE IS. Don’t ever doubt that.  Hold on to Him through thick and thin for he has promised to never leave you or forsake you. I want to see you in Heaven and meet you, my brother in Christ Jesus.  ~  Marvin Kirchner

      I hope this will bring some comfort…
      My wife passed away from breast cancer in 1985, 35 years old and a Christian.I had trouble dealing with this terror that gripped my heart and soul.  I won’t burden you with the torture, grief and anger I experienced during the time of struggle to overcome and finally loosing my loving wife.Then, just recently, during my morning reading of the Word, a verse in my Bible gave me peace of mind… after all those years I received consolation.The verse is in Isaiah 57:1The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.

      Hope you find this food to be helpful…

      I just read your heart-wrenching story.  You have suffered through every parents worse nightmare.  I am so sorry for all you have endured and your family will be in my family’s prayers.  Please remember, Satan, the great corrupter of the Truth, is to blame for he brought pain, death, and suffering; he is the “ruler of this world”-John 14:30.  Remember also that this is just a temporary world and how you live your life here determines your fate in the eternal world.  Your precious daughter is safe and this horribly painful separation is temporary.  I pray you will persevere and focus on living to please God and leading your family to do the same.  Diligently study His Word so you can “accurately” handle the Word of Truth and know the rules that wins the crown of life -2Timothy 2:5,15.  Lean on your compassionate Heavenly Father for the comfort that only He can provide.  Live in such a way as to reach Heaven, where death can no longer separate and where our loving Father longs to wipe every tear from our eye.
      Please copy, paste, and study; make sure you know:
      ~ God’s Plan of Salvation ~
      “…the way of God more accurately” -Acts 18:26
      The last vital guidance Jesus gave before returning to Heaven:
      “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed AND HAS BEEN BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED.”  (Biblical baptism is full immersion in water “for the forgiveness of sins”.)  “Make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the very end of the age” -Mark 16:15-16, Matthew 28:18-19.  Also study: Psalm 146:3-4, Proverbs 3:5-8, 14:12 & 16:25, Jeremiah 50:6, Acts 2:38-47, 4:12, 8:36-38, 22:16, 1Peter 3:21, Romans 6:1-13, Galatians 3:27, Colossians 2:12, Ephesians 4:4-6,13-15, 6:10-18, Philippians 2:10, John 4:23-24, 12:48-50, 15:3-14, 1Tim 2:3-6, 4:6-8,15,16, 2Tim 2:1-26, 3:12-17, 4:1-9, Titus 2:10-15, 3:1-8, Hebrews chapter 3, James 2:14-26, 1John 1:5-10, 2:1-6, 5:1-21, 2John 1:1-11, Rev 22:18-19, 2Cor 5:9-11,15.
      “…let us encourage one another- and all the more as you see the Day approaching” -Heb 10:25. “until we all may come to the unity of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, …so that we may no longer be infants, being blown and carried about by every wind of doctrine, in the sleight of men, in craftiness to the deceit of error, but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, the Christ” -Eph 4:13-15.

      I know some of your feelings — because I had one sister and I took care of her until she died from cancer at 50.  Then 7 months later her oldest son was shot and killed; and the year before — my only granddaughter died (she was 10 hours old).   It was about 12 years later, when my sister’s youngest son was diagnosed with skin cancer.  He lived with me most of his young years, as did his mom and brothers.  They were especially close to my heart!  I lost my husband to alcohol along the way — and my house was set fire from a drinking binge.   I felt like my whole world was pulled out from under me.  But as Ben said — life goes on.  I’ve learned about the peace that passes all understanding — and Ben reminded me of all the beauty through God.  It’s amazing, but Life Always Goes On!  And Faith grows stronger each minute…

      Dear Doug Whosoever Kirchner, it is the name you use that got my attention and brought me to tears even before reading your post. Doug please understand that you are no longer a “Whosoever” once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You are then a “Saved” and ‘Set apart child of the most high God”. Your heavenly Father loves YOU more than your flesh can understand. He wants good things for you and we know He is the restorer of ALL things. Rest in that Love, for God IS Love. Get in the Word and really get to know the Father that loves you so much that He would send His one and only to die for you so that you might be with him in paradise for eternity. His is a true and perfect Love, and perfect Love cast out all fear. Trust Him, put your faith in Him, lean on Him, rest IN Him. Praying for you and your family. May the Blood of Jesus cover your household and keep you from the evil one. God bless.

        From nothing to nothing equals nothing in between. Doug’s daughter is not dead. You are! You are nothing! In the end, God will treat you as such. Your comment is meaningless and so are you. And your comment, “sorry for your loss.” is contradictory to your philosophy. I am assuming you are an atheist. If so, science is the only foundation for anything you hold unto. Science cannot detect anything relating to any emotion or characteristic of humanity. There is no “ghost in the machine.” You are not a living sentient human being. You are a pile of chemical elements. That’s it. If you hold to your belief that there is no God, then you must, if you are honest with yourself, believe that you are nothing more than what you claim Doug’s daughter is right now. You have no capability for being “sorry” for anything for you are void of emotion, ethics, choice or conscience regarding anything that real human life might present to you. You are nothing but compost and nothing more than that can come from you. The only way that your status in this world can be risen is if you believe in the one who suffered your fate (death for your sins) and rose from the dead giving us who believe life, hope, peace, joy and love. Those characteristics of God never die. Now, say you are sorry to Doug and to God and MEAN IT! The only way that will ever happen is if you truly believe in Him. He will give you life and love enabling you to do this. Without Him, you are nothing. By the way, I am NOT sorry for telling you the truth. Truth can only come from love. What you said was virtually nothing of any worth to anyone. Become something of value to the world and believe in God. Then, maybe you will be someone worth listening to.

        Not everyone is equipped to deal with reality. Delusion and superstition works for people like that. It’s OK as long as they don’t go overboard and start trying to burden others with their beliefs in an effort to bolster them.

      Doug, I understand the pain and suffering of losing your child.  I lost my 16 year old in a car accident.  It causes you to look deeply at everything in your life.  I can tell you that there is a God and he is a merciful loving God and and I believe he hurts and cries with us.  But He has a plan that is bigger than us and it is a perfect plan.  I trust him and know that someday I will see this plan in its fullness, then I will understand why my daughter was taken to him.  Have faith and be the best you can be, your daughter is counting on you to do so.

      Dear Doug,
      I do not know of any words of comfort because no one can understand what another person is going through. I just want to say that I am sure your daughter is in a holy place and that you are a precious person in this world. We are taught that G-d only gives us challenges that we can handle and when it seems that we can’t we turn to faith. Whatever works for you, I pray you continue to live life with a special pocket in your heart for your daughter and many other pockets full of life. I hope things work out for you and the family and although it is difficult now, and will be painful in the future, I hope you will be able to smile again and know that you are special

I am proud of you for your honesty in your struggle.  Life can be hard.  That is why we all are here for one another.  God loves us, and we now get to share His love one another. I hope your life has become stronger since you posted this message.  I will be praying for you.

    There was a day back in 2003, when all that had beleived was true…was confirmed to be true.  I had had some abdominal surgery to correct the effects of a serious MRSA infection.  While sitting up at my bedside, I began to hemorrhage rivers of blood.  Suddenly I was lying down in my bed with 5 nurses turning me from side to side to attempt to stop the bleeding.  I heard overhead pages for “ANY DR OR SURGEON COME TO ROOM 326 STAT!!!  I felt the life pouring out of me.  I knew if I closed my eyes, I would die.  And then I had the most beautiful moment of my life.  Jesus Christ Himself was sitting on my bed, holding my hand…and He told me, “you’re not done yet”.  Then, I was in the OR undergoing surgery again to stop the bleeding…but I was at peace.  I KNEW I was not done yet!  

    Thank you for letting me share this story!

    It doesn’t hurt to die, it hurts to live. I remember sleeping and I woke up but I knew I wasn’t breathing. I felt peaceful I didn’t hurt and I felt warm. Amazingly, I felt happy. Then my husband moved next to me and I started breathing again. I felt pain as the air went into my throat and more pain as my  lungs expanded. Instinctively, my body gasped for air as blood rushed to my brain. I felt everything my body was doing to keep me alive. Then as I became accustomed once again to everything working the pain faded. I know that Heavenly Father gave us our bodies and am thankful for the opportunity to live and learn to have faith and praise His name. I have always been terrified of dying, but this experience has helped me to not fear it but know that it is a necessary step in this life.

    Yes, it was a good story, but thousands of these happen everyday. I read most of the comments here, and most of you are pitiful. earth to yall, God doesn’t put an arm in the sky in the form of a cloud to talk to you. A relationship with God isn’t some great, dramatic thing that you see. It’s called a “still, small voice” for a reason. You make me sick, with your high and mighty drama crap that you peddle to these people, Glenn. Sometimes I wonder if Glenn Beck is just like the Liberals who cater and peddle their “wares” to the masses. It’s sad, as Glenn has such a good opportunity to help people, and rather he peddles his goldline, and his “work from home” crud that has taken advantage of thousands. Sigh.

      I feel it is sad that when you have an act of GOD before you, you feel the need to blaspheme. You need to open the Bible and educate yourself. So you really believe that when Moses seen the “Burning Bush” it was a figment of his imagination or when Jesus healed the sick in the book of Matthew it was lies.
      Some people make me sad with their disbelief, but i will still give love for them and pray to Jesus that they are saved. I hope you accept Jesus in your heart then you wouldn’t be so judgmental of other people knowing that you live a life of SIN. Your above comment is an example of Envy,how about taking the PLANK from your eye before attempting to remove the spec from someone else.

      Yeah, too bad Moses isn’t still around – there were a bunch of Israels that failed to maintain their faith in the cloud of day and pillar of fire at night – they wandered for 40 years and at the end – they were denied the Promise Land – God will speak with whatever means He knows our hearts, minds, ears, or eyes need to provide the peace that surpasses ALL understanding – that includes your Mr Jones.  I dont’ recall ever reading in the Word of God that He named you as His spokesperson.

    Glenn I believe in both GOD and Angels. Ben is far better off than most of us for now.  God is working in our world and I believe he is trying to wake us up.  It is always hard to give up the ones we love, son, daughter, mother, father or spouse. Anyone you love.  But God does and will give you peace if you ask him to.  Ben was a wise young man and I know he is in heaven.  I wish the rest of us could learn before it is too late.  I am with you that things will really start happening soon as GOD is moving in our world.  Just look at all the signs written in Revelations.  We are experiencing these today.  I pray that everyone that watches Ben’s video will look up, pray and ask GOD into their lives.  I have witnessed many deaths.  Some very peaceful and some screaming and yelling but would not ask for forgiveness.  Just two words, forgive me and they could have died in peace.  OH how I pray for souls here on this earth.  People listen, open your eyes and hearts before it is too late.    His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.  2 Peter 1:3.  Glenn keep up the good work and I believe you are here for a reason just like we all are.  Thank you for sharing Ben’s story.  So many like his. BEN, I BELIEVE IN GOD AND ANGELS.  HE AND THEY ARE ALL AROUND US.

    I heard Glenn talking about this today on his show. I needed to see it. It makes me sad but it did not make me cry because I know that GOD is real and with each of us. In 1987 God took my daughter from me. I could not be mad, yes I was hurt beyond belief. I knew that is GOD gave his only son for me, why should I not at least give my daughter back to him when the time was right. I tried so hard to look for the good in the situation. So many good things happened from the death. I know that from this death a lot of good will also come, GOD has a way to reach out to the world, his children, his creation. I pray that each one who views this will realize that GOD is real and waiting on you to come back to him. Realize that he alone is the way. Believe in no man, every religion except Christianity had a leader who died, they did not come back to life. I remember a poem that God put in my hands a couple of years before my daughter died. I was reading Ann Landers column in the newspaper. I thought I would cut it out and put it away and maybe help someone else later who had lost a child. Never in my wildest dreams would I think it would be me. I had this printed on the front of the thank you cards that were sent for my daughters funeral. I have sent it to many a parent since then. 

     “I will lend you for a little while a child of mine he said,
    “I’ll lend you for a while a child of mine,” He said.
    “For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he’s dead.
    It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,
    But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
    He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief,
    You’ll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.””I cannot promise he will stay; since all from earth return,
    But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
    I’ve looked the wide world over in My search for teachers true
    And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have chosen you.
    Now will you give him all your love, not think the labor vain,
    Nor hate Me when I come to call to take him back again?””I fancied that I heard them say, “Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
    For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we run.
    We’ll shelter him with tenderness, we’ll love him while we may,
    And for the happiness we’ve known, forever grateful stay;
    But should the angels call for him much sooner than we’ve planned,
    We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand!”My prayers are for all who view this to realize that Jesus Christ is the only way to GOD.

    Larry Anderson Kelseyville CA  (larryfanderson@yahoo.com) tears of JOY cascaded down my face as I viewed Ben’s message. It reminded me of my own Near Death Experience I had more than 40 Years ago. It was a classic NDE and changed my life. Ben has inspired me to get on with my project which describes an airplaine crash into Monteray Bay where John Denver crashed. As a result of the crash I nearly died.  I lost my business of 20 years my home and went from 20 million net worth to homeless. The experience left me with the understanding that all material things are temporary and all that matters is LOVE.

    The working title for my book is “I have become Job..for the love of Danny.” Danny is my son whom lived with me nearly homeless for 12 years in a decrepit motor home.  We wondered the south west on a vision quest. Danny became skilled at the Native American Flute and doing  self study while on the road passed his High School Equiv Exam at 13. He is now very successful CPA at 25. Dan became convinced that there is no GOD at UCB influenced by Professor Richard Dawkins which makes a powerful argument against Diety. I have read Dawkins and he like myself is a scientist, However, after one has a direct Personal Experience of Divine Providence there is no doubt at all as experience on the other side is one of Love that is so powerful and beartiful that I did not want to come back to this vail of tears.
     What I came to “know” that there is No Death.

    I was in the Navy, stationed on board a submarine based in Scotland.  We were about to go to sea.  I got word that my 5 month old daughter was in the hospital, and may have sudden infant death syndrome, SIDS, but I could not leave the ship.  The day we were heading to sea, I was topside on the phone circuit relaying orders.  It was a cloudy day like every day in Scotland.  I was worried about my wife and little girl.  Then I looked in the sky.  Was the sun trying to break through?  No, the sun wouldn’t be there if it were.  I looked around and no one noticed the bright light.  I was worried about my girl, until then.  As I looked up, I felt the warmest feeling I had ever felt.  And I was given the sense that everything was going to be fine.  My little girl and my wife would be fine.  I trusted that feeling, and went back to work.  As it turned out, they were both fine.  My girl didn’t suffer the worst that SIDS can bring.  A couple of monitor alerts, but she was fine.  The is now grown and married and living her life.  Do I believe in God and Angels?  Yes.  With all my heart, my mind and my soul.

      Many who saw Jesus perform miracles still did not believe He was who He said He was: the son of God.  No amount of evidence can convince or change the mind of a cynic or a skeptic until or unless God first touches his heart, removes his spiritual blindness and binds up the demonic spirits afflicting him so that he can see his desperate need for Jesus.

      Not everyone is so blessed to be written in the lamb’s Book of Life and included among God’s elect.  Those of us who have experienced the leading of God’s Holy Spirit are able to see and know that it is true, but these things are spiritually discerned.  I pray that God would bless you with the gift of opening your spiritual eyes so that you too can experience what many others have experienced and are experiencing every day, submitted and surrendered to our Lord Jesus in everything.

    I have been noticing miracles, did you see the car on the bridge, a semi hit it, the semi went over dropping 100 feet, driver died. car bent in half hanging off the bridge, firemen said they would have to find a crane to stablize the car holding a mom and her 2 daughters 10 years and a baby. Just then a military unit came along with a telehandler that could reach accross from the lanes on the other side of the bridge and hold the car in place until they could free the people. That is definately divine intervention. God is trying everyday to show people he exists, in some of the simplest ways.

    This video chocked me up but was not amazing to me what what he went through as it’s exactly what I went through when I was 17.
     I had been rafting down a river that we were use to but this time we came around a corner and a new rancher had put up barbed wire and had fell a tree so his grazing cattle could cross to the other side. My inter-tube caught that tree under the water and half my body was under the log and the other half over that log trapped in the bit of rapids. I was instantly taken away and my whole life was in an amazing dream went before me with no detail left undone. It was so clear. The peace I felt was so amazing and I like Ben have never forgotten that moment and that unexplainable peace that was felt. I was also in a place that was all white and long yet no one else was there but an amazing presence and comfort. The happiness was overwhelming.
    Then I was back on earth and coming to as friends had joined together and untangled me off that log and out of the water. When I woke up I was mad at them….I didn’t want to leave that amazing place….I was reaching to go back. It actually took awhile to recover but that peace never left me, that moment never left me and I’ve never been afraid of death since.

    I have always loved Jesus since I was a tiny little girl He’s always been with me and I knew I was in God’s presence that day.

    To see a young boy at the age I was when I experience the same thing is so wonderful to see. I have shared on blogs and debated many of those that claim God doesn’t exist but when you’ve been in His Presence no one can ever change your mind….ever!

    I spoke my last words to my Aunt yesterday as she is on her last days on earth. I know I should have been upset and yes I will miss her but I know and I told her so that I would see her again, there was no doubt of that. I know she loves Jesus, I know she’s going to her heavenly home and will be with other family members and so many that have left us lately.

    It’s been a rocky road with this recession loosing jobs, going through savings, giving up our home, doing what we could to keep going but we never lost hope and we just started new projects that are getting us back on our feet again. God doesn’t leave us….sometimes we just don’t pay attention to Him.

    glenn… i am a fan of yours.  thank you for posting this video.  i believe as you do that humanity is on the verge of seeing incredible things.  i believe that there is a spiritual battle now taking place and that the barrier between this reality and another is soon to be blurred.  i think your time at fox lasted just as long as it was suppose to and that your new endeavors are part of a larger plan to reach a different audience.  i applaud you for saying things that need to be said at this particular time so that all that hear will have the opportunity to make the correct decision on God.  whether it is tim tiebow or you or ben breedlove’s video or scores of other places where God is clearly making a statement, humanity is being given one last chance to repent and ask for God’s forgiveness.  i fear the time grows short.  thank you again glenn for all you have and are doing.

I pray the world will open their hearts and their minds to Him and always remember, this isn’t the end… it’s not over when we die…Our adventure and our Love affair with our Creator GOD is only beginning…Praise Jesus Christ for dying for all of our sins on that cross 2,000 or so years ago…

    My name is David, and I think I had a similar experience. I have Asthma and scoliosis. I had to go into surgery in september 2000. During the surgery I had a massive asthma attack because the drugs were too strong. The attack was so bad I got a scar from the mask used to help me. My mom prayed and she knew immediatly that I would live, before the doctors working on me knew!. I lived through it. I believe mom’s prayer was answered. I believe in miracles,God,Jesus and Angels.

    brvaugh I had a very similar experience with death and robbed it just like Ben did. When I was awakened in a hosital ER room, I felt very unhappy because I was taken from the most beautiful, peaceful feeling I had ever felt. Yes, there was a very bright light that I was heading for. I now know why I came back- it was to tell others about what a blessed place heaven with angels are and where God is at with his blessed Son, Jesus Christ who came back from the dead to free us from our sins. God is watching over us and so are his Son and all the angels in Heaven. Be at peace with yourself and God!! I can’t stop smiling either!!!!

    Dear Mr. Beck:  I have just finished watching the video placed by the late Ben Breedlove, introduced, by you, as “one of the most heartfelt messages about God, I 
    (Glenn Beck), has ever seen”. I have a trial membership to GBTV.com.  I have always believed, going back to your days on Fox News in NYC, that your messages provide a Godly service, But the lower part of the screen is obscured so the viewer can’t see the bottom lines of Ben Breedlove’s message. I hope that you realize that this post is intended to be constructive. Anyway, please keep up your good work. Thank you. Gordon

    You don’t allow expansion of picture and the bottom third of his tablets are yiped out by the GBTV toolbar and one can’t read the full message – totally ruins the ability to get the message – please change your preferences and allow window expansion with a “fullscreen” icon everyone is used to expanding.  I did find one can expand by clicking on the GBTV logo but many will not be aware of that capability.

    “Hope from Ben” is one of many stories that exist that show that we are not just a physical body that goes to ashes when we die but it shows that we continue on.  Here in earth we  are spiritual beings in a physical world.  We have a hard time in believing in our “spiritualness” because most of us need to see or experience things beyond the physical inorder to understand.  Once you have spiritual experiences like Ben you begin to see, you begin to get it.  I have had similar experiences to Bens but different.   When my mother passed away a series of events unfolded that showed me that her life continues on even after her physical body died.  My mother wanted me to know that she is still around.   My story to most would probably be unbelieveable because it would be difficult to prove but it I can say it was one of the most life altering experiences I have ever had.  Good for Ben to have been showed that when he dies he will continue on.  I am sure this made him so much more at peace when he died.  Blessings to Ben’s family.

    David please read the book the one minute cure by madison cavanaugh. There is help for things like asthma. I have leukemia and read the book because I refuse to do chemo. Chemo kills!!!! I went from level 3 to level 0 in one month. Please read this book and do some research, you will find help for your condition. Everybody else out there, there are cures for cancer and other diseaes that your doctor will not and can not tell you about because the Big Pharma will shut them down. If you ever have a disease please be your own advocate and do some research, do not have blind faith in the doctors. God put a cure on this earth for every disease, and it is not drugs, we must find them. I have discovered so many people that have cured their various cancers and none were from drugs or chemo.

    This comforted me a great deal when I saw it. I am faced with the very high probability of losing my entire grandparent collection this year, with my grandmother currently in the hospital and giving it her best to hang in there. There is comfort for me, when facing the losses of loved ones, or reflecting on the losses I’ve already endured, that there is, indeed, a God waiting to call us home to that sweet, sweet peace. Amen and amen.

    People that claim to be agnostic or atheist are usually people that are angry inside from life experiences or ignorant because their parents have never taught them of his greatness, or they are having a power struggle with themselves. They would like to believe they are the great ones. It is the anger and power struggle that causes them to do things like try to take “In God We Trust” off of our money etc. That is why those of us that believe must stand up and not let that happen.

    People are interested in that which can demonstrate the existence of God. If only there was some way that I could contact Glenn Beck, because although the existence of God cannot be proven nor disproven (God is nonlinear), it actually can be demonstrated by simple scientific means of which I am familiar. I’m not certain how does one get in touch with Beck? I could help fill an entire show for him and help him make a surprising difference in the lives of faith-seeking persons. (I’ll try various contact forms, but if an employee is reading this comment, feel free to get in touch, I’d like to send in a unique proposal; thank you.)

    What this young man said about the white light is so very true!  I have seen it for myself when my dear husband died some 20 years ago.  the moment he took his lasT breath, he smiled a hugh smile and his eyes opened so big and he sat up, something he had not been able to do in days because of liver failure and lack of all body fluids. We had spent 6 days and nights waiting for the inevitable and at that moment, the Dr. was in the room with 5 of us that had sang Christian songs and  prayed with my dear Bill.  I saw his monitor flat line and knew he was leaving us and when he did WE ALL saw the most glorious light that Bill saw and a piece came in the room and we knew he was in the arms of God.  When we left the hospital the entire Seattle sky was the most beautiful color red-orange and yellow across the entire sky form all areas.  It was God telling me not to be sad that my 40 yr. old husband had left us, he was indeed with Our sweet Lord.  I cry ever time I think about that day and I miss Bill still.  The Dr. told us he had NEVER witnessed anything like that and we all testified about what we saw. I have testified about it many times ever since.  I KNOW AND HAVE WITNESSED THE GLORY OF GOD!   THANK YOU JESUS

    I had experience very much like his. I was pregnant and stopped breathing. I woke up and saw myself below me.  Bright, blinding light.  Did not see anyone, but the peace  and love was amazing. I wanted to stay, but could not take my baby with me. I woke up gasping for air and started breathing again.  Yes, I believe in God, Jesus and angels.

    I believe in God. My daughter Sarah had TRIPLETS 10-24-11 at 33 weeks. Jason has a spot on his heart. I was holding him in the NICU and he turned blue. I started praying and the nurse came over and told me to rub his back and remind him to breathe. I took a Bible from our church and left with the Triplets in NICU. When Emily and Anthony came home before Thanksgiving I took a picture of Jesus holding a lamb and taped it to Jason’s bassinet. We went back and forth to spend time with Jason. He was coming home with a heart monitor Dr.s said. Well before Christmas he came home without a heart monitor because I know God holds his heart. My son-in-law is in the Army and came home from Afghanistan the day after their birth. On 11-10-11 http://www.salisburypost.com did an article on them. God did a miracle to even protect Chris so that he could see Sarah and the TRIPLETS. Thank God and Jesus !!!

    Amazing.  He’s so beautiful.  I love his smile.  And what a good heart.  You CAN tell!  I have heard many story’s of people who saw things as they were passing away or near death.  I even witnessed it when my grand mother passed away.  She was talking to the ceiling the night before she died.  Saying, “I love you”  Over and over again!  Holding her arms out and wrapping them back onto her as if she was about to hug someone.  I’ll never forget that!  

    There has been countless… things in my life that made me suffer.  To what seemed it would never end.  And some suffering still has not ended.  But there are just as many times were I felt a power higher than me or looked back and thought about how lucky I was.  Or how perfect it was.  Or wondered if God gave me that gift.  

    Even today I still suffer as we all do.  But I know I am alive and there is a reason for it all.  What a waste if that would not be true.  I try hard to hold onto those miracle moments in my life.  Because some of them really did save me.  Some of the painful moments may have also!  Sometimes the greatest learning has taken place during great suffering.  And most of the miracles in my life, happened when I finally lost all hope, all faith, and gave in, accepting my fate.  How ironic is that!

    I still am not sure how to feel about God.  But I’m moving closer to him every day.  And moments like these really help solidify what I already know.  But what my eyes cannot see, my heart sings a prayer.

    God Bless Ben.  

    God Bless Glenn. 

    God Bless you all who struggle too!

    God is always here,all you must do is open your heart to him and his truth and love will fill you and the proof of his existence will surround you. Proof,all you must do is listen and look at the world around you, with an open mind and with your heart full of love then the proof of God will be seen in every detail. Proof, look deep into a child’s eye, what more proof do you need, for there lives God.

    It’s a powerful video. The music provides a great enhancement, IMHO. However, there is one thing that takes away some of the impact. There is a semi-transparent horizontal bar along the bottom of the screen that obstructs the last two lines of Ben’s cards. I want to read everything on those cards, as he intended. The bar is not present on the youtube video. Perhaps it is not too late to edit the video so as to remove the bar.

    Ben was and is a remarkable young man. His blog brought back memories of when my Mother passed away and I just wanted to share it….My Mom was in the final steps of her journey with Alzhiemers, I now know what is meant by the light of life in the eyes as I watched my Mothers dim. She had been given meds to ease her labored breathing.I sensed the time was near, I held her hand and told her I loved her.Then I leaned close and told her it was ok, she can go home.Her eyes turned to me and she actually smiled, then that light was out.And in an instance I felt something enter my “being”.Something I can only describe as pure joy, pure peace, pure belonging and pure love.I was enraptured with that and then “it” left.My family joined the Hospice Chaplain in prayer, they were crying but I was actually smiling – Mom is ok.Thats what happens in death.We grieve for ourselves and the void we now have, Mom is just fine….and then some.Do I believe in God, my heart sings to answer a resounding yes.And while I love and cherish this life that He has blessed me with, when it is my time, I dont fear because I know I will be just fine…and then some. God Bless.

    I too, believe in God and His angels, watching over us.  I first believed when I was 12 years old, and I asked God to forgive my sins.  At that instant, I felt His presance, and His cleansing sweep through my young heart.  It stayed with me, and in an abusive home, God was there with me.  Years later, I had lost my way but found that path Home to Him, and in my mind’s eye, I saw the face of Jesus, smiling at me with His hand held out to me.  In 58 years, God has been faithful, in spite of my human weakness.  I don’t believe because of a video but rather, because I read the Bible, and believed the Words of God.  If that Word was not true, the bright lights and other things would mean nothing.  God sent His Son to join us on this sinful earth for 3 1/2 years, and then die on the cross and be raised from the dead.  He paid for our sin, and how stands at the right hand of the Father to intercede for you and me.  I’m glad for Ben and his message is sweet but without the Word of God in the Bible, it is meaningless.  Jesus warned us in these last days not to be decived.  Don’t focus on manifestations Satan can imitate but keep our heart toward Jesus Christ as the Word of God.  I’ve seen my share of His wonders and give God all the praise.  Bless His Name, one and all.

      Do you know that all each of us is asked to do is to believe? God has instructed us to ask Jesus to take our burdens and all that is wrong in our lives and have Jesus take it upon himself. Yes, the moment you do that, you will feel and know that God’s presence is with you. God loves His Son Jesus Christ. Anything you ask through Jesus’ name will be given you. Of course, God expects you to ask for sinless things, God expects you to ask for help and assistance, God expects you to ask for blessings and His forgiveness.You will see God in your mind’s eye and you will see the face of Jesus as well. It is all true and there are hundreds of thousands of people who have seen this miraculous event in their own mind’s eye.  You may be sceptic but once you do this you will be forever in God’s Grace.   If you want true redemption and be freed of vices and the devil then this is the way to free yourself. God Bless us All who take the plunge into Faith. Your life will be greater and more fulfiilling and you will feel blessed as many of us already do.

        I think you missed my point.  I DO believe, and while that is what God asks of us, WHAT we believe matters, to.  The Devil believes but he’s still the Devil.  Why on earth would you see me as a sceptic from that post.  This makes me wonder what you mean by the terms believe, faith, etc.  Dear girl, stay in the Word of God.  If it’s not in the Bible, it’s not of God. I’m interested in what group you fellowship with.  I’ve been teaching Bible Study for 45 years.  Something seems amiss.

    What an incredible video to share, Glenn! I enjoyed watching Ben’s story very much.. However I do not know if you or your staff caught a particular element of this video that was even more interesting and inspiring.. but toward this last couple of minutes there is an angel wing that flashes on the left hand side of the screen several times. At first I couldn’t believe my eyes but I reviewed the clip again and it is still there. I guess it is just more miraculous proof that God really was sending each of us a message through Ben, regarding ourselves and our loved ones.

    I’m convinced my son had this same experience.  He was about 14 yrs old when he had status epilepticus, a condition in which there are continuing attacks of epilepsy without intervals of consciousness.  His blood gases registered 20 during that night and he was put on a ventilator.  He aspirated at some point causing adult respiratory distress syndrome and spent 36 days in ICU, 9 of those in a medically induced coma,  and another 10 in Pediatrics before he came home.  It was a miracle that he survived that first night.  Also miraculous is that there were no residual effects resulting from anything he had suffered this this entire hospitalization.My son was developmentally disabled and his speech was garbled and often unintelligible.  There was a time when he would try many different ways to say what he had to say until we could finally understand him.  And then at some point he just got too frustrated to be bothered and so he would only say what he had to say one time.  If you understood it, great.  If not, too bad.He was home from the hospital less than a week when I saw him sitting at a window and peering outside.  He appeared deep in thought.  Then he turned his head toward me and I heard him say, “the priest saved my life.”  I will remember those words forever.  You see, there was a priest at the hospital who went in to see him and pray over him.  I believe my son saw that light, but I’ll never know what else he saw or what sent him back.Sadly, he lost his life on Valentine’s Day 2001.  I haven’t been able to reconcile this loss, but seeing this video helps me to know that finally someone has been on the other side, and back, and has been able to convince me that my son is waiting for me and most of all, he’s happy and peaceful.Thank you for sharing this video.  I needed to see this.

    I was raised in a home that no one even thought about God, Jesus, or even going to church, yet there was something in me that felt that there was something more inside me that made me feel that I wasn’t alone. it wasn’t until I was 17 that I had a visitation of a man that everything about him was pure white, except for his eyes, and they were bright red in color. This man came down from out of heaven upon a cloud, and as I was lying down, he stretched out His arms with fingers stretched out he bekoned me to come, so H rose me up, then set me upon this cloud and rose to an elevation that I could not say, yet I could not take my eye of His, then He said, Look down my son, when I did, I saw wars, death, famine, hate, starvation, foul weather everywhere, Earthquacks, hurricans, tornados, and floodings everywhere there was Land, and Death everywhere, when I saw this He then said look up my son, as I did, He then said this my son is the way it shall be, I then woke up or sat up in my bed, and could not go back to sleep. i have had this on my mind all this time, I am now 57 years. I now am a believer, so thanks Glenn, God Bless.

    It’s amazing how God let’s you know he’s with us. I lost my husband Nov 2007 to his 3rd and final Heartattack. That night when I closed my eyes, I saw the vision of Jesus in color & would not open my eyes. Seeing him brought me peace & it felt as if God was sending me the message that my husband Dave was in Heaven with his father. This morning I was listening to Glenn discribe this video & as I walked into work listening on my AM radio I stopped & looked at the most amazing sunrise. My co-workers just kept walking, but I stop & took in God’s beauty. people need to stop & listen, god is around us. I beleive in Angels, I BELEIVE in God!

      Yes Debi, and You Should Believe in Him, and in Heaven, because I’ve had simular “visions” when My Mother passed and when I became sick a few months later. I was in another state to make my Mothers arrangements because she too passed from a heart attack. I was so upset because I didn’t get to say Goodbye or SAY to her..”Remember Mom, WE WILL see each other again”, I was in the hotel room the morning after burial I knew it was Not a DREAM because it was and remains to be a Strong Accounting in my mind, dreams are not remembered for the most part after a while, but This was SO different, and I had been crying for real, and I woke up it was just before 6, maybe 5am? and turned to my husband and said “Wow, I have something to Tell you, and HE said…WELL, LET ME GO First! He said to me…Your Mother was IN this room, and he Proceeded to Tell me he was awakened around 4am by a Strong smell of a womens lotion or perfume, and just as he had that aroma, one of my Mothers Music boxes played a couple of notes, now what you don’t know is that there were at least 30 maybe more? My brother and sisters had brought them to Our room because I am the Oldest and really not sure other than that why, but 1 of those played and we never knew which one and that’s Not important, what IS, is because in My vision My Mother had a Great sense of humor sometimes, AND SHE CERTAINLY DID this time, because it was almost Christmas and she knew I was staying to get to that gravesite because I wasn’t allowed to go during actual burial, so the day OF burial was a Beautiful day even though it was Houston and in December, But that Next  morning after MY vision which was my Mom without going into the Entire story, Told me to Go home, she was Fine, well iT Poured rain, became Cold and windy like a Hurricane and stayed that way until I had to fly out 2 days later,….I have had simular visions from my Mother and Finally my grandmother after waiting and praying for over 23 years….it again was NO Dream, Heaven DOES Exist and Thank God it does, because without it, We would Not have an understanding of all the pain and suffering of so many for so long. God IS Amazing and YOU are SO right that Every day we should Look at Gods Beauty He Created for Us…because when we Leave This one, Our Reward IS Heaven!  One thing that I do feel bad about, it has made me have NO Patience for those who Take SO much for Granted, or have NO Appreciation OR Respect for Others, This I have to Pray for, and seeing your Post about Stoping to Watch the sunrise? Thank You Debi, because with ALL My Understanding and My Blessings of Visions into the Other Life, it has made me Not Like Selfishness or Greed, and a Lack of Appreciation and Respect for Everyone and Everything. LORD I NEED help with THAT. But as I keep reminding anyone who wants to “call someone” out on Imperfections…None of US are Perfect…I certainly am not. He that was, is In That Heaven You and I AND Ben Breedlove and I Pray Many Others Know and Believe Exists! I Too Debi, Believe in God AND in Angels! Thank you.

    Glenn Thanks for airing this article on your new program. I am an ex-Austin resident and still currently have relatives there. I viewed the video played on Youtube. I was unaware it had been edited. I copied it to my facebook page shortly after it had been posted and immediately began to get reactions. This is a young man that held the hand of Jesus as he was led to ‘the gate’ and  received by God. As I beleive in Angels as well as an after life in a better existance with God. I am not outragiously religious but I must point out Revelations and the discriptions of the second coming, miricles as well as messengers. Was Ben a messenger? I can not point out specific scripture making reference to such sightings, miricles or co-incidents as I’m sure no matter how they would be discribed biblically, modern times would have it’s own versions. Is Ben one of those ‘versions’? Should we be looking for other such references/sightings. How many such sightings/happenings occur in other countries by other such messengers as Ben, but, only quashed due to their country’s governmental policies on religious or just plain old non-beleivers. I’m sure your ‘crack research staff’ could come up with many such available solutions.
    Big fan of your show as well as your ‘crack research staff’. Your show is one of the high lites of my day. Met you at your 1st Book signing in Atlanta,Ga following your outdoor show at Centinnial Olympic Park, Showed you pictures of the attractive sport shirt you were wearing on that date captured in my pics as you signed my copy of your book, “High lite of my year”. We love you down here as well as Mr.Newt. We depend on your encouraging word as well as your ministry. Your encredible wit is to be reckoned with but not topped. Keep up the great work, we need you. Again congrats on the new show as well as the NEW ‘Media Central”.

    Yawn. Read the Bible, it is all you need to turn you into an atheist. Fairytale. One thing I’m sure of, I’ll never get the 10 minutes back it took to watch this video. God is so wonderful, but he didn’t want to fix this kid’s heart. Right, he needed him in Heaven..  wake up people.

    • JapesMacfarland

      Yet even if you’re right and there is only death at the heart of the universe (rather than love) why do you go out of your way mock others and work to discourage their faith? It was obviously a comfort to this kid. What’s wrong with you? 

    • Anonymous

      So, do you believe there is evil in the world?

    • Anonymous

      QuailRanch…Obviously, you didn’t read this part: Isaiah 57:1-2 “The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.” I suggest you read the rest of that chapter for yourself. Then read Isaiah 44 and you will see your foolishness and that the only alternative to God is the realization that you are nothing more than a pile of chemical elements only performing according to the dictates of nature with no plan or design, ethic, moral principle or choice. God used this young man to bring others to him but you see that as deplorable. Look at John 15. Where do you see yourself in that chapter of the Bible? Do you see yourself as one who can do nothing or as one who would follow Jesus’ command to “Love each other”? I know you won’t see it or believe me when I say I do this out of love and concern for you. If you see God’s efforts through me for what they truly are, I thank God that he has brought you to him. If not, remember what happens to the branch that bears no fruit. I pray for you.

      QuailRanch, it’s revealing that you decline comment to anyone who responds to your rant.  Nothing threatens or angers the atheist more that the thought of God.  For you to respond requires the risk of hearing arguments that threaten your disbelief.  QuailRanch, the anger in you that forces you to rail against any thought of God is the Devil, the evil one.  Hear me, QuailRanch, I was once like you, I KNOW YOU!  There is evil in the world, you do feel it, it drives your anger.  Once you understand this, once you feel the evil, you will know that there must be a God.  Open your mind and read the Bible again, you might be surprised at what you learn.

      Actually, reading the Bible properly is a sure way to turn someone into a Christian.  I don’t know what fairy tales you’re talking about.  I’ve read through the Bible front to back twice now, and I have NEVER EVER come across a single fairy tale.  Than again, I’m not a blind fool like you, either.

    That’s a pretty risky opinion. If your right nothing happens. If there is a god then you better make sure you know Him as He said himself, “I am the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but by me”. You need to know Him. He knows you. 

  • Michael Neely

    The peace he describes feeling is a pretty good approximation of the state of mind experienced in unification phenomena associated withTelic Centrism.
    Telic Centrism as a Belief System
    New Religion? No.
    Preface: The principles of this belief system are held to be self-evident. The underlying concept is that nothing should come between human beings and their concept of a supreme force in the universe. A person capable of logical abstract reasoning and thought innately understands the difference between right and wrong.
    The Telic Centrist KNOWS the truth and as a human being is capable of adopting positive beliefs and placing them into personal practice with, without, or in addition to, any set of formal religious beliefs.
    Fundamental premises:
    1.   The supreme power, whatever one holds that to be, knows all thought and action. This is unification.
    2.   A follower must look inward and foster the highest level of positive thought possible in the search for positive unification and fulfillment.
    3.   There must be no intermediary person, thought, or practice between the Telic Centrist and the supreme entity.
    4.   Because there can be no intermediary, Telic Centrists must come to Telic Centrism through their own volition and unite with the supreme being or universal force of their choice through personal self-purification, introspection, and the elimination of negative or harmful thoughts. Some will not be capable of embracing Telic Centrist practices and thought.
    5.  The inner peace and harmony of the Telic Centrist will be self evident and self-validating. External displays or demonstrations are unnecessary.
    6.  Only practitioners can guide themselves through the introspective process. One cannot be led to it by another.
    7. Only the practitioner can know whether their inner thoughts have become completely positive. This cannot be judged or validated by another.
    8.  Complete unification may be brief, episodic, or sustained. There may be only moments of positive unification as part of a continual struggle to achieve it along a continuum leading to complete positive unification and fulfillment.
    9.   Many will seek, but few will achieve sustained or complete positive unification. The process of seeking positive unification and inner harmony will bring the highest feelings of self –esteem and satisfaction possible in life other than complete and sustained positive unification.10. Positive unification is a fulfillment of life through an enlightenment that is sustained in death.

      Fundamental premises:

    I am sorry for him, if he would have asked God Almighty, He would have healed him, and if he had asked he could have walked in the peace of Jesus the same as in heaven right here on earth, and his family would have been happier I believe. As a second choice, I’m glad he is in heaven.

      Heaven is a second choice?  Wow, are you kidding?  I think he did pray to God for healing and he got the same answer Paul did. “My grace is sufficient for you”.  It is very clear that this young man had grace.  He learned more in 18 years than many do in threescore and ten.

    Dear Doug Whosoever Kirchner, it is the name you use that got my attention and brought me to tears even before reading your post. Doug please understand that you are no longer a “Whosoever” once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You are then a “Saved” and ‘Set apart child of the most high God”. Your heavenly Father loves YOU more than your flesh can understand. He wants good things for you and we know He is the restorer of ALL things. Rest in that Love, for God IS Love. Get in the Word and really get to know the Father that loves you so much that He would send His one and only to die for you so that you might be with him in paradise for eternity. His is a true and perfect Love, and perfect Love cast out all fear. Trust Him, put your faith in Him, lean on Him, rest IN Him. Praying for you and your family. May the Blood of Jesus cover your household and keep you from the evil one. God bless.

He is also sending others and you can tell from other bloggers who are suggesting you real. “Heaven is Real” and “90 minutes in Heaven”.  Remember, He said. “If you acknowledge Me, I will acknowledge you to my father in Heaven”. enough said!

    Ben’s smile is so beautiful — it has a simple, child-like honesty that can only come from deep within.  In our church, (same as Beck), we believe in the idea of eternal progression. We came here to learn and grow, and when we  leave here we will continue to learn and grow. It’s like being in school. We’re all hoping to make it to the next level

    Oh my God what a beautiful kid and may Jesus take him in his arms as well as his family.  What a brave young man.  It gives us all hope who have lost someone we love.  Through his eyes we can see that they are alright and in Gods hands.  AS my mother would say, we are all in Gods hands.  We miss them terribly but only God can make us whole.  One day we will meet again Doug in a place where there is no sorrow.

    Jesus said… “I am THE way, THE truth and THE life, NO man comes to the father but through me”  John 14:6

    I too had a white light experience but I didn’t know God thru his son Jesus.  If I had died – that peace I felt would not have lasted.  The further message to Ben Breedlove’s story is yes there is a heaven but there is also hell but to get to heaven you have to put your faith in Jesus, God’s only son.  The only one who ever died and conquered the grave.

  • http://twitter.com/fawnday Fawn Macnamera

    This may sound dumb but so be it. Yeah, it’s great that Ben shared his story and that people are finding God through it but his story is all about what HE went through. Anyone who has had an NDE will tell you that in order to really know God a person has to experience it for themselves. Not that everyone should die and then come back, though, but there is a way find the same thing through having an Out-Of-Body experience. Without the side efect of having the not wanting to come back part the way NDE will give people. Ben’s story DOES say that life goes on. Having a physical body is just one part of life, not the whole thing of it.

    I experienced this path of life and death with my father.  His comment was “I’m on the mountain (pulled his oxygen tube from his nostrils) and said to my brother “God doesn’t want to see me like this”.  He was so peaceful for the first time in his life.  He had been severly ignored and abused by his second family, but never judged.  My brother and I got emergency guardianship of him 6 mos. prior and brought him back to health to enjoy (what he so well deserved again).  He played pool, swam, to his first Great Granddaughter’s volleyball games and they made a connection that was brought by God. She never knew him prior to us getting him and Glenn, you would have never known they were 13 yrs. apart.  He reconciled with his first love of his
    life (childhood sweetheart).  His siblings were able to be a part of his life with no distractions
    or refusals to enjoy him.  We knew it would be 6 or 12 months of giving him back his life, dignity and quality of life he deserved.  He was tatterer, bankrupt and home condemned.  He put his
    love and trust in his first two children & our Mother and I praise God for this.  It wasn’t only for him, it gave me peace, comfort and a new meaning of the Lord.  I lost him at age 10 and the inner demons left when he was
    lowered in the grown.  I felt the light, peace and Godliness all around him that day we gave his
    spirit to the Lord.  His pain left his face, the smile once again appeared.  He was my Poppy and will be in my heart forever.  When I see corruption today, I close my eyes and see Pop smiling.  I do not own a single picture of him not smiling.  He was a man of God.  His words to me when I was struggling in my 20’s was this “never worry a bout the things you have no control over, but
    if you can control them, fix it).  Great advise.  He was believed in your candid comments and saw the many changes in our world.  He didn’t want to go, but the peace put an ora around him and I praise God for giving him 82 years of life.  He deserved more but being a holy man, you took for him or gave.  My peace is “my brother and I GAVE to him” and never asked for anything in return.  It was an honor to have had Poppy in our life.  The fight, pain & hurt to give him 6 months was a minor sacrifice.   Thank you for this beautiful video.  I have spoke with family near death and the describing wasnRIGHT ON!  Bless you and and Ben’s life plus his sharing this story.  I still pray for those who destroyed, ignored and abused him.  Maybe God will turn there
    lives around one day.  This is a story I want to share with the world one day.  Our elderlly are being abused and our nursing homes are are governed to the point “it is a HOLDING PIN” for these ill, lonely and very sick human beings”  To this day my G-Granddaughter, her friends and myself visit and try to bring joy to Pop’s last home.  The pass is the pass, but from what I have experienced, these people deserve so much more.

    My mother died on the operating table and came back.   The story she told was amazing.  I believed what she experienced;  it’s true what is said by those that have gone and were sent back.   My mother, who doesn’t speak Hebrew, was spoken to in that language and she understood what was said to her.

    Steve Jobs was heard to have said, “Oh wow” just before he died.  

    We can choose to believe or not, that’s a choice we all have….. it costs nothing.

    I have a beautiful and spiritual cousin in Texas that survived a motorcycle accident.
    He was doing all the right things but it was unfortunately God’s plan was ever so different.
    He experienced the light and said the beauty and peacefulness was where he wanted to
    never return back to earth. But the Good Lord was not done with his work here.  He just
    had the motorcycle law adoption in Congress (after hard work) to place a red market to
    honor motorcycle workers in all states.  It was named  after him The “Michael Grove” act.
    Ironically, he had someone pull out in front of him and having his helmet on saved him, but
    he is struggling to be as normal in life as possible.  His stuggles, severe pain and took all
    his life savings to heal (ins. only pays for so much).  Ironically this happened Dec. 21, 2011.
    On Dec 21,2012 he lost his father that he cared for.  Michael needs many prayers and I wil
    send this video you posted.  Bless you once more.

    God knows every pain we bear and every tear we shed.  He has experienced our emotions to an even greater extent.  Out of such love for us (imperfect, unworthy, sinners), He GAVE His only Son (Perfect, SO Worthy, Sinless) and I don’t know that we really understand what degree of love it took to leave such a perfect place as Heaven.  In the devotional, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, her devotions are written from the perspective of Jesus speaking to you.  The first person singular (I, Me, Mine) always refers to Christ; “You” refers to the reader. On December 25, Christmas Day, part of the devotion reads, “Try to imagine what I gave up when I came to earth as a baby.  I set aside my Glory, so that I could identify with mankind.  I accepted the limitations of infancy under the most appalling conditions–a filthy stable.That was a dark night for Me, even though angels lit up the sky proclaiming “Glory!” to awe-struck shepherds.
    When you sit quietly with Me, the process I went through is reversed in your experience.  As you identify with Me, heaven’s vistas open up before you–granting you glimpses of My Glory.  I became poor so that you might become rich.”
    I believe Ben, Colton (Heaven is For Real), Doug’s little girl and many others have had these glimpses of Heaven while on Earth.  Of those I’ve read about, NO ONE wanted to leave the place of perfect Peace and Love and return to their Earthly dwelling.  When I read that phrase in the devotional, “That was a dark night for Me” it gave me a new perspective on how Jesus, the Son, and God, the Father, might have felt that First Christmas Night.  Remember, God didn’t lose a son (child), He GAVE a Son to us ALL so that some day, if we confess our sin, repent, believe in Jesus and ask Him to dwell within our heart, and then commit to follow Him, we will share Eternal Life with Him forever.
    Thank you Glenn for showing us Ben’s REAL message.  He definitely had a ‘special assignment” and I believe he not only touched many hearts while here on earth, but he has changed many hearts to God’s Glory since he left this earth.  I imagine he was greeted with, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”  Doug, I pray it brings you comfort and peace to know you are being prayed for.  Keep your faith, in spite of your circumstances.  Don’t ever believe God has forgotten you!

    I just have to say one more thing.  People mean well when they tell you she is in a better place and it is absolutley true.  But for those of us who are living in the pain, it doesn’t help with the pain.  What does help is letting God and Jesus Christ give you their comfort and peace.  It is there I promise you.  That is the only true help at times and it is important to notice it and feel it.  I am so sorry for your pain.  The more you love the more you feel the pain.  I know because I loved my daughter with all my heart and my heart was shattered, but Christ has helped me to heal.  I will not be whole again until I am with my daughter again, bu for now, I can have the peace of the Savior and let him hold my heart and heal it.

    Glen, My daughter-in-law was killed in a car accident in Sept of 2011. That day changed my life completely. I am now helping my 27 year old son raise three children all under 5 years old.  God does work in very mysterious ways.  My 4 year old granddaughter was also in the car and it thank God every day that she was not seriously hurt. I do believe that God gives us massages all the time though every aspect of our lives.  Thank you for once again bringing God to the front of all things. This is where God belongs 1st and formost in everything, everyday.

    The vail between heaven and earth is so thin. I know with my heart and soul that there are angels and God. I have had so much help. Some try to help but not knowing God’s will or my wishes set me back and then the Angels come in and correct things. God knows what is in my
    heart and it might take an eternity for my turn after others but that is okay.

    Some very dear friends sent this to me yesterday; I had watched it but I watched it again and again I am consumed by the peace I felt back in 1996 just before I was to learn I was going to lose my mom to lung cancer and that I was going to walk with her as far as God would let me go. My mom was my next door neighbor and one of my best friends and that was gained after a lifetime of struggles to understand each other. I went to bed one night and I had a dream. A dream that was so real I could touch it. All I could see was a hand, palm down with the softest and warmest gold watch band; I swear I could feel the warmth of it. There was only white all around it – no table and there seemed no resting place for the hand. I wanted to see if the band was real so I put out my hand to touch it. The hand turned over and held my hand. I have never felt so much love coming to me, never and, yes, my parents loved me very much; this was just much more. I looked at the face of the watch as that hand held mine and all I remember is thinking was there was not much time. I woke up. The next day my father and husband went through all of their watches to see who’s watch I had dreamed about. I could not imagine feeling that safe, secure, and happy unless it was around them; it was not their watch. Two days later, my mother called after a doctor’s appointment and she quickly explained that she was going to die and that she was not going to make her family suffer with it. There are no words to describe a moment like that but I knew that I had already been told and that I had a journey to take a journey with my mom and I was going to take it with my hand in God’s. My job was to walk my mom to the door of home and I know how blessed I was to be chosen to be able to do that for her.

    We talked, laughed, and cried whether it was about life or the E.T. monitor on the tip of her finger; in the end we were able to say our goodbyes. God stayed with us the entire journey. Everytime I thought I was going break, I felt that hand. And, when Mom was sleeping more than she was awake, she was home building her new home. Mom would wake up and ask me why I was waiting to live my life because time was so short; she let me know that after all of the years in this world, I still didn’t get how much she loved me. Mom woke another time and it would be the last time she would actually speak to me. “Leslie”, she said, “you need to get everyone off of your foundation because you will not be able to build with them on it. The ones that are there are not there for you, they are here to take from you.” She begged me to listen. I went to the nurses and doctors and asked if medications were causing hallucinations and was informed that mom had been refusing any medications for at least three weeks. A nurse came to our room and told me, I needed to listen; I listened and I am listening still.

    There were even more miracles in store for us on our journey with each other. Our church pastor could not come on several occasions and sent others at his behest. People mom didn’t know and that she couldn’t be comfortable with. One night a pastor knocked on the hospital room door and asked if he could come in and visit with my mom. My mom said the company would be fine; they talked half the night. I sat on the other side of the room by the window, I couldn’t hear a word being said. Before the pastor left the room he came to me and let me that he would be here until it was time to go; he was, everyday for the next ten days. I talked with him about heaven, angels, the pain of going and of loss. I talked with him about my life till now and I talked with him about who my mom was. I talked about my sister and brother, and, finally, my dad. The time came and it was time for us to go home. My mom passed three days later, at home, with all of her family. I looke for the Pastor after her passing because I thought he would like to come to the memorial service only to be informed the hospital had no such pastor on their roster; I knew I had met an angel and that he had walked Mom the rest of the way home.

    I have never looked or felt the same way about death since and, yes, there were losses after this. I lost my nephew, my brother’s three year old son to neuroblastoma cancer and then I lost my only sister. I did not witness the miracles this time around but the faith that was born during my mother’s passing was there and it is here and it is real. We will all go home; the hand that is holding mine told me so. Mr. and Mrs. Breedlove, Ben is at home and he is well, I know it. One more thing. After my mom passed, I left Florida and came to the mountains to heal. My home for the past 7 years is located on a road by the name of Breedlove Hill.

    Dear Doug,
    I’m so sorry for all that you have gone through. Losing a child, a spouse, is one of the greatest heartaches of all. I don’t know why tragedies happen but I do know from personal experience, that years later, somehow all that I went through ended up making sense, and I was a profoundly better person for having gone through the agony. My tragedies have allowed me to help and comfort others when no one else could – because I had been there. 
    I know that that is small comfort right now but God has something wonderful in store for you and your family. Just stick close to Him and know that your precious daughter is sitting on Gods lap right now, He’s holding her in His arms and loving her, the same as He is doing with you and your family. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you always.

    I too have had an experience with death, wherein I should have died.  No way I should be alive today.  No bright lights, nothing like that.  However, my life after that experience has changed for the better.  I have become less selfish and more giving and I believe that with God within me, that I have helped a great many people that, had I remained the person I was before this trauma, would never have been a part of my life.

    As a whole we are perfection, of yourselves you are only equal to your own ability…a little girl’s definition of God.

    Forgot to mention this BEAUTIFUL when I wrote a comment a moment ago…Thank you SO much Glenn for showing this video on the air, and for posting it on your website. I have been forwarding it to everyone I know. I always cry when I see Ben’s video, at first because this fine young man died, but then because he left us such a precious, precious gift! What a beautiful young man he was; his legacy of hope, joy and Gods peace will live forever.
    Thank you Ben!
    Thank you Be’s mom and dad for raising such a wonderful young man!

    I hate to be the dissenting voice especially after seeing such an inspiring story of perseverance and virtue but stories, songs and videos like this offer no proof of anything to do with God. Ben lived a good life and, thankfully, died a “good” death. When I was younger, I became an Objectivist, following the philosophy of Ayn Rand. By definition, an atheist. During that that time I was the victim of a high speed, head on collision and suffered a thoracic aneurism with a .01% chance of survival. At no time did I turn to faith. Natural phenomena, such as medical survival or the fact that the sky is blue are proof of nothing supernatural. What did change me, and let me know, consistent with my objectivist belief that only existence exists, was a scientifically, statistically impossible event — something very mundane — that made it a theological position to  not believe in the existence of God. It wasn’t a moment of inspiration, it was cold, hard reality and I describe it as God hitting me over the head with a 2X4 and saying “I exist, dummy”.

    The Book of Mormon is the Word of God, also. It teaches us to believe in Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior. I believe there are other scriptures that will someday come to light.  If it doesn’t teach us about Heavenly Father and Jesus, it is not of God.

    • Anonymous

      Historically, the standard has been that books claiming to be Scripture must be consistent with Scripture that has come before them and be written by those whose station as prophets has been unequivocally confirmed by God.  That standard has not been met since the time of the apostles, and thankfully so.  Otherwise we would could be led around by anyone offering new “scripture”.

    If you ever had the blessing of being with someone dying you would hear similar stories.  My grandmother said she was in a dark room with one window and Christ’s face was in the window.  Others were grouping around in the dark but she saw the light.  She was angry that she was brought back. When she did die I was there with her in the hospital room when she looked up and cried OH Senior,( Italian for God) and I felt the presence of something in the room so strong that I blessed myself.
    When my husband had a stroke at 46 I prayed for and answer as I lay in the hospital with blood pressure as high as his had been and in the light above I saw the face of Christ weeping.  I knew then he was gone.
     My dad saw his family coming to greet him and finally when he saw God his face just lit up and he was so happy and excited saying “there He is, there He is”.  Then he saw them leaving he cried don’t go don’t leave me. He was quiet after that and died within the week
    God is real, believe in Him.

    In Sept 2009, the mother of a long time friend of mine going back to when I was just starting grade school passed away. There was just something about that whole time. As sad as death is our families felt a great deal of comfort even then. She had spent her whole life so incredibly close to God, in fact going back 10-15 years she was the inspiration for my moms conversion. We just knew she was in a good place. Seeing a story like Ben’s just contiually reaffirms my faith that God is truly with us and involved in our lives in a profound way.

    It would be nice to think that I could look back on my life and be proud of it – as Mr Breedlove could.

    I can not – but that is my fault, not the fault of God.

    “Where was God in the Concentration Camps?” – same place he was for Ben Breedlove, ready to welcome people and to tell them that their suffering was over now.

    The victory of horror (whether natural or created by human beings) seems total – but it is actually just a period before the defeat of horror. And that defeat is eternal, as Ben Breedlove knew when he made this film – and knows NOW.

    When I was nine years old I died for several minutes and came back. I had a similar experience as this young man. It was the most peaceful place You can not begin to describe it.  It was like being submerged in pure Love and peace. I did not want to come back either. I yelled at the Doctors who revived me to send me back. They thought I was crazy. But I wasn’t. I have no doubt I was in Heaven. It is absolute perfection in all things. I grew up and became a minister of the Gospel. I know God is real and He is a God of Love.

    I had a dream when i was a child.  I was walking up this beautiful hill.  A lady clothed in white leather, like an Indian lady.  She had long braids and a head band of white leather.  She met me and smiled and said its time to go.  I was so happy. She took my hand and  We walked up this hill and just before we got to the top.  The light was gorgeous. Bright and happy./  Then she turned around and said I had to go back , she could not take me further.  I woke up mad.
    I haven’t had another dream like this.  But I know where I am going.   I haven’t had any contact with visible angels.  But ive lived thru some hard times in which i have felt help

    Rick Santorum’s little girl Bella, has been hospitalized because of her condition.  She’s three years old.   When Bella was born,  Rick and his wife Karen were told she wouldn’t survive.

    My prayers go to the family that they should have the strength to go forward what ever happens.  God Bless the Santorum family.

    Dear Glenn, Yes I do believe in God. In 1965 my younger brother was hit by a car, and in a coma. The first week temperture went up to 108, they said he was going to die if it didn’t break. I struggled with praying “Thy will be done”, because selfishly, I didn’t want him to die. But I prayed. They packed him in ice, the fever broke. When he came to he told my mom, “I saw the angels, it was really bright all around, they said it wasn’t time yet, and to go back’. That was 50 years ago, and a couple of years ago it was my time to be tested, and he was the only one there for me. God knew he was needed in the future. I do now, and will always believe in God Divine Providence, and the prayers of children, teens, and adults. Heaven is Pure Love, an indiscribable loving perfection and peace, and it is worth following Christ, and  living and perfecting for. He forgives, and He saves. He is a real God of Miracles!

    While I was growing up, there were several occasions when my Dad was transferred or simply spent several weeks in another town for his employer.  He always came home or we joined him and while the separations were unpleasant, we always knew we’d see him again – be reunited.  My faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ allows me to view my Dad’s passing in the same perspective. That he has been transferred from this mortality and we will join him at some future date.  The only real difference is that there are no phones this time.  The greater perspective is that we are the ones who are away from home right now and he’s there, waiting for us to come home.  He’s there with all our brothers and sisters, literal children of God our Father, anxiously awaiting our return.  We will recognize him (Dad) when we arrive, and we will realize we know everyone else there with him because we all lived as a family previous to this mortal existence here on earth.  We are the ones who are traveling, we are the ones who are gaining experience, learning, practicing what we learn, because it will be necessary when we get home again.  I look forward to throwing my arms around my Dad again, just like I always did when we were reunited before.  I look forward to seeing Ben again, remembering what I suspect was an extraordinary brother from our premortal existence, and thanking him for this bit of encouragement he left for all of us.

    or despair.  Thanks Glenn for making sure this got out for all to see.

    Yes I belive! I have always belived in god and Angles but in 2008 it became more clear.I was driving my truck it was myself that was 5 months pregnant and my 4 year old daughter. I was on a country road in April which is the windy season in New Mexico so it is not uncommon for wind gusts to be 70mph. Unfortunatetly a wind gust hit me it pushed me into the shoulder the truck bed was so light I could not get the back tire out of the gravel. The truck flipped I do not know how many times once it stopped I was able to get my daughter and myself out of a window. We barley had a scratch so when I knew my daughter was ok I started to worry about my baby but four months later our healthy baby girl was born. I remember the sheriff was amazed he said he has never seen a truck look like that and everyone survive. There was two spots in the smashed metal roof where my daughter and I were sitting that the roof was not damaged also this was a new truck but the airbags did not work.My husband says we had our Angel airbags on. I know that God and his Angles are there everyday to see us through the good and the bad and there is a reason for what he dose. I do sometimes wonder why I was so blessed.

    I saw Christ in the face of my former husband the night before he past.  He has been is a hit and run accident 2 and 1/2 weeks prior and had UNBELIEVABLE injuries – we experienced many unusual happenings during his stay in the hospitial and was then sent home to recover!  I was learning how to change the dressing, from a viiting nurse, on a burn wound on his chest, (he had been trapped under the second vehicle that ran  over him pinned under the catalic converter, bad bad burn) when the nurse gasp and said do you see the love, it’s everywhere.  I looked at my husband and was awe struck!  I felt as if I were looking at the face of Christ !  It was as if time stood still.  I felt Joy and peace warmth and LOVE  and thought this must be a sign of my husbands recovery.  We finished the new dressing and the nurse just was amazed at this evening event.  She said she was domb founded – that had not prescribed and pain medication –   he surely must have been in extreme pain!! Third degree burns all over the left side of his chest, 15 broken ribs, bruised lungs,  cracked bones in his scapula and various other bruised and burns.   He assured her he was fine and thanked her for her time with him.  We were tired but there was a sence of peace there.  We were having a family breakfast the next morning and were going to make plans for the timimg and shifts for his care with family.  We woke up at 5:30nd began our morning routine is the bathroom.  He suddenly started hiperventilating, I got him back in bed and called 911 with my other hand. He looked at me and softly said oh no….  He suddenly just stopped breathing!  There was a window across from his bed and a light from the sunrise seam to slip in and then slipped away, the 911 operator instructed me to start compressions.  But where do I push with all that was wrong with him I was afraid!!!!   At that point a police officer can in followed by EMTs and took over.  I knew with my heart of heart he had past.
    This happened 20 years ago but somehow has never left me for too long.  I know that seeing Christ’s  face where my husband lay, was and experience of Absolute  LOVE.  A love that  connects all of us beyond the love of a man and woman, a friend, anything ,even a child.  It is a LOVE  that connects from ourvery soul………………….

    Dear Glenn,
    In Oct. 2007 my husband passed away after fighting cancer.  Before he died, he shared with me details of where he was going, and, at the end said he was going “home” and was very upset with me because I wasn’t “ready” to go with him.  He said he was in a large field.and he was talking to a girl (I don’t remember her name), but he was asking her….”Where is Molly”. My husband’s aunt Molly had been very ill and my husband hadn’t seen her for a while…..she passed away a few months after Dennis.

    The morning after Dennis died, he woke me up….flipping cartwheels and shouting for me to wake up and “see all the energy”….It was not a dream!  I had never before had that kind of dream and have not since.  One night shortly after that, my feet were very cold.  I was part awake and part asleep……wishing I could wake up enough to add another blanket to my feet.  Suddenly, something touched my feet and they were instantly warmed.  Then I felt a new blanket on my feet….this one fuzzy and comfy, not the satin coverlet.  I was so relieved, and instantly went back to sleep.  In the morning, I remembered having my feet warmed…..at the foot of the bed, my husband’s fleece bathrobe I had left on the post of the bed…..was covering my feet (very flat annd pristinely laid out) and the satin comfortable was ON TOP of the fleece robe?  I knew I had been “visited”, but just in case, I asked everyone in my family if they had come and covered my feet.  They all said “no.” 

    Do you believe in angels and God?  I do!!!

    Glenn, I bless my God everyday for MY deliverance from 3 life-threatening heart surgeries and finally was accepted in Barnes Hospital , St. Louis and received the surgery I needed.  I know God held my hand every step of the way.  The program that repaired my defective heart was a nationwide research program I only qualified for because God held my hand and kept me alive until the research program was ready.  Bless you and the beautiful young man that saw angels and GOD.  Hedyblue

    This is an amazing video and anyone who doesn’t believe in God or angels is plain ignorant and only fooling themselves.

    The most important question to ask yourself here is not “why does God allow certain things to happen to us and our loved ones, but to understand that He sees everything before we go through our trials in life. When man brought Sin into the world and upon himself he also ushered in death, pain and suffering. God didn’t want this for mankind. We suffer not because of what God does to us, but because of what man did to himself by sinning. Your personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what makes entering Heaven possible. Nothing more, nothing less. If you want to enter into the Joy this young man has seen then your passage way to heaven is in Jesus. “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me!” John 14:6(NIV) There is NO other way but through Christ. My mother experienced seeing the Lord’s presence when she was 23 years old. Even though she was out of her body she was complete in who she was. She had a body presence and she was refreshed. Her conversation with the Lord was one of her wanting to enter in, but He said to her, “No, not now”. He put His hands out towards where she was standing and she felt herself moving down and back into a heavy world where she felt the pressure on her chest. She awoke in the hospital room and got out of bed. Because she had been under an oxygen tent her hair had turned from a dark brown to somewhat reddish in color. She washed her hair in the bedroom sink and walked down the hallway of the hospital very early in the morning and the nurses didn’t know who she was at first. She looked different and she was no longer sick! Since that time we have seen my brother pass into heaven at eight years of age when he was hit by a car on his bicycle. He passed into heaven the next day. My mom and I have talked over the years about her out of body experience and the reason she may have experienced it. She told me that she knew she was going to lose one of her children but didn’t know which one. She may have been given her experience because the Lord wanted to reassure her that there is so much more than we can comprehend here on earth. I asked her as one mother to another, how can you deal with the loss of a child and go on? She said that the children we have are a gift from God. They belong to Him. We are to raise them up in the knowledge of Christ so that they will continue to do God’s will on earth. I then said, no one really knows until that very moment when they actually die whether or not there’s really a “here after/heaven”. She turned to me and looked me straight into my eyes and said to me “Oh it’s very real!” I’ve spoken to others who have had almost the same experience when they left this world temporarily. The vision of Christ with bright light beyond the sun’s brightness but it didn’t hurt your eyes to look into it. The conversation that ensued and the feeling of heaviness when they came back. There is peace, and rest for those who know the Lord Jesus Christ!

    My father died of a heart attack at age 32, right in front of me. As we drove him to work that morning he told us about a dream he had the night before. He told us he died, that he could see his body laying there, he could see us crying. But he couldn’t tell us how happy he was that he felt no pain. That dream he shared with us helped us handle his death. I know there is a GOD.

    My favorite books to read are on NDEs (near death experiences), which Ben experienced.  Check out: “Embraced by the Light” by Betty Jean Eaddie; “The Soul’s Remembrance” by Roy Bills; “Fingerprints of God” by Arvin S. Gibson.  There is also a current TV show, “I Survived-Beyond and Back” that I love.  It shows people telling about their NDEs.

    Yesterday, we sent out 2 more residents to the hospital. Maybe it is their time, maybe it’s not. Last year I lost 10 people from this life on earth. I came into Delta’s room 30 minutes after she has passed. I will never forget the peace inside her room, and the peace written on her face. Like a gentle exhale. I stood among the pines, with snow covering the ground, on her land in the mountains, and her family laid her to rest next to her husband of 64 years. Harry left 6 months prior. That was the longest he could wait. They brought no money, no cars, no clothes…..

    I echo what Ben says; when will the Heaven begin?

    Glenn, I am at the beginning stages of a divorce. For Ben and I, bad things happen to good people. The main thing is to ALWAYS carry GOD and your beloved fallen ones with you. It is time to over come the obsticles in front of us. I believe that his story is about God and freedom. God bless you Glenn and your staff as well.

    My nephew had this same heart condition and experienced the same “fixes” that Ben had. When he was 15 years old he went into a cardiac arrest while helping with Cub Scout Day Camp. He was pulseless for 45 minutes while the EMS worked on him. They were ready to give up when they felt impressed to try cardioversion one more time. That last try started his heart. He was immediately air flighted to Children’s Hospital where he spent 6 weeks waiting for a new heart. I stood by his bed and watched the bed shake with each beat of his heart which was the size of a volleyball rather than the softball size it should have been. He had a heart transplant from a 18 y/o who died in a tragic accident and he has started a new life. He has just returned from serving a mission in Minnesota helping people come to Jesus Christ and learn of Him. My own son died of a heart condition several years before and it was only through the knowledge of life after death and the reality of the resurrection made possible because of my Savior Jesus Christ that I survived that loss and the subsequent loss of my full term stillborn daughter. I know that we will be together again someday.

    It could be a day like this, the sky will split apart.
    From the east unto the west, what joy will fill my heart.
    Because I’ll know what day it is, when I see my Savior come.
    Upon that joyous cloud of bliss, I’ll fly with Jesus home.
    He’s prepared a place for me, upon that golden strand.
    When His glorious face I see, I’ll be a happy man.
    Because I’ll be at home at last, and no more will I roam.
    When the Master says to me, “Well done and welcome home.”
    I’ll fly, so high,
    When I hear that trumpet sound.
    I’ll fly, so high,
    I’ll be homeward bound.
    I never have felt at home, here on this earthly sod.
    No matter where I roam it’s clear, my soul belongs to God.
    So if I die before you do, don’t weep, ask why, or groan.
    Death is not a threat to me, it’s just a door to home.
    I’ll fly, so high,
    When that trumpet tune is blown.
    Don’t cry or ask why, I’m only going home.

    Can’t really see this video because you can’t enlarge it. And the ads on the bottom of it cover up half the signs Ben is holding up. Just a heads up.  Thanks.

    Dear Glenn,

    Thank you for sharing Ben Breedlove’s story. It must be an enormous comfort to all who have lost someone dear, especially those who lost a child. We need to believe the unbelievable.  This very earth we live on, our miraculous bodies, minds, and spirits cannot be explained, but for the presence of God.

    Ben’s video inspired me to share an experience I had a few years ago. Driving home from an appointment, it started to rain and turned into a downpour. It was type of rainstorm that renders your windshield wipers useless and visibility diminished to near blindness. I was terrified. I couldn’t  see what was ahead of me, beside me, or behind me. I wanted to pull over but I was afraid that I would hit another car or drive into a ditch. I truly did not think I was going to make it. Then, up ahead I saw the biggest cross I have ever seen. Strange as it might sound, It was decked out in huge white lightbulbs. It gave off the brightest light and lit up the road ahead.
    I felt an incredible sense of peace. I was so grateful for the church that had erected this incredible cross. I wanted to it find it so that I could thank them for the gift of their cross, but as I continued driving, the cross kept moving just beyond me. When the rain letup, I looked to see if I could figure out exactly where the cross was, but it was gone. When I got home I went online to to find any churches on that stretch of highway. I wanted to call and thank them for the cross that led me home. My search came up empty. Since that day I have traveled that route many times, but I new saw that cross again. I wish everyone could have such an experience and believe. There are miracles, large and small everyday, but people try to explain them away. They are so conditioned to thinking that if you can’t prove something scientifically, then it isn’t so,  They would rather believe that they were hallucinating or that surely there was some logical explanation. I know that God led me home that day. I believe it with all my heart. God bless you and your family for believing and for spreading the word that God is with us.

    Is this boy unable to speak? He could have told his story in a minute or two, without the cards, the somber music, and the perfectly timed smiles. If what he had to say was so powerful why wasn’t his spoken word enough without gimmicks?

                     For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories.  (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

    Just came across this today. Made me think of the work of a Duch neuroscientist, Dr Dick Swaab. The name, by the way, is not a joke.

    These visions and feelings can quite easily be brought about by electric stimuli to the brain, as can religious experiences and certain feelings of euphoria. All has been documented many times, and it’s quite a common “light at the end of the tunnel thing” to experience. I don’t quite understand how this video has to do with God, really, aside from the question Ben was asking at the end. I don’t. And his experiences fall within statistical normality. So it’s lovely for him, but doesn’t evoke any emotion in me aside from the feeling that life is sadly short for some of us.

    Lack of oxygen combined with hypoglycemia will easily and assuredly cause a temporal lobe seizure in the brain. Hallucinations combined with intense emotions including joy often occur. It is what it is.

    I believe in God. I believe Angel’s are not only in heaven they live amongst us, living their daily lives by his word.

    Thanks for sharing♡

    I worked in a nursing home for many years and can tell you as a Christian people are helped to heaven. That peace is there.

  • SecedeNow

    Glenn I want to thank you so showing this video. This will be the second time the Lord has brought it to me. I was blessed to be in that white room without walls also for 3min. I was given a charge to love his children. Then, I send back. I love how this video took me back to that time when time stopped and all there was the purest peace and love that no words can describe it. The feelings of being home. This experiences has blessed my life deeply. I can share my story of heaven to help others to not fear the door of death. As I took this mission to love others that come in my path many miracles have happen. Life has gotten harder and trials rage but I seem to to be in eye of the storm at peace knowing that I can bless others in my storms because the trust of the Lord plan for me. My darkest moments are now my greatest blessing to help others see the deep love and all the heaven intervention that sent to save us time and time again. He never give up on his children. It our choice to walk away or toward him. He always near listen to our prayers said and prayers not said. Our tears are prayers of help and help will come.

    Once you have felt the Holy Spirit, it is not something you ever forget or can ever deny. When I was about 14, my mother used to have Bible studies in our home. Friends would come over and we would sit around the dining room table and pray and read the Bible. At 14 it was more of a “drag” to me because all of the adults smoked and there would be a visible layer of smoke in the room that drove me and my friend, the daughter of the people that came over for the Bible Study, nuts. We, usually tried to find reasons to leave the room. On one occasion, her father, Jim, went into our living room to pray to be saved and give his life to Jesus. I thought it was time for a bathroom and air break so I excused myself and walked through the kitchen then as I entered the entryway which was connected to the living room, the most wonderful thing happened. I felt a physical presence so strong, that I did not want to move. It was the most love, warmth (without temperature), most drawing feeling my soul had ever felt. I will tell you I believe this was the Holy Spirit coming to Jim. It was so physical words cannot even begin to explain it. I went into the living room and quietly sat in a chair. Jim was kneeling down at our fireplace hearth praying, I just wanted to bask in whatever that presence was. My friend, Debbie, apparently decided she needed a break too, and as she passed through the entryway she took a sharp intake of breath and whispered to me, “what is that? She came in and sat on the couch, she wanted to bask in whatever it was too. I whispered, “I think it’s the Holy Spirit”. We sat in silence just “feeling” this beautiful presence. I heard my mother say, “what are those girls up to?” and she entered from the other end of the living room and was physically taken aback. There was no question in her, she knew immediately that this was the Holy Spirit, eventually everyone ended up in the living praying and basking in the presence of God. This was not just a spiritual feeling, I reiterate this was a physical presence of the best kind that I cannot begin to describe in the meager words I have used. But God was there that day. I have felt him move in my life on more than one occasion. But that was the strongest moment in my life. I am 60 now, and I still remember the awesomeness of those moments. I thank God that he allowed me to witness that and be in his presence for those moments. If this is what heaven is like, I want to be there. When I use the terms Holy Spirit and God, know that Jesus said they are the same, the trilogy. I was so glad that Glenn went to see Billy Graham a few years ago. I thought that would be life changing for him. I hope it was. I think Billy Graham walks in the Spirit and is one of the most holy men of our time.

    Have you seen the writing “Footprints”? I lost my Sister in 2012. 16 days later I lost my dad. Eight months later Iost my brother. Losing your three remaining family members in one year and having to clear out and sell a home we had all lived in since1956 was devastating. I think there were one set of footprints for about a year. Jesus was carrying me. I did not sway, my faith is strong. Jesus was there for me.
