I know this is common. I have heard many stories of people who "wouldn't die" until a particular family member arrived. This is a testimony to God's love and perfect timing. It also shows He is involved in the personal details of our lives.
I had to make a huge decision regarding my job of 40 years, and I needed to figure out which way to go. One night God showed me a vision. He showed me which path to take, or actually, which path not to take.
God talks to people today. Sometimes it's that quiet, still voice. Sometimes it's not. One of the ways He communicates is by bringing people up to the first Heaven and showing them things. Almost 10 million people have had near-death experiences. Many of these experiences have been documented by hospital staff.
In this post, the trees are the scriptures. We should all know the Holy Bible, scripture by scripture, word for word. I am not being sarcastic. That is what we should all know. But I also know that that will not happen for me, and maybe not for you, either.
