The reaper one is kind of scary.
Did these have any emotional effect on you? Any lasting messages?
Ya the Reaper really freaked out my girl friend.
I talked with her about it a few years ago, and her mouth dropped open and she said with a gasp of air; "I forgot all about that!"
"Did these have any emotional effect on you? Any lasting messages?"
Yes, that we are being watched. And the other side can interact with us if they decide to. I know they are there and they are watching us in this few decades of mortality that we get. And the experiences got me to study a lot.
But we aren't supposed to try and contact them to question them, the Bible warns about this in several places.
Easton's Bible Dictionary
Text: (Deut. 15:11), i.e., "one who interrogates the dead," as the word literally means, with the view of discovering the secrets of futurity (comp. 1 Sam. 28:7). (See DIVINATION.)
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a "necromancer".
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Note; The standing shadow of a man or Angel said; "You must be made pure."
Which I find interesting, because if I am to be "made pure" it apparently is not something I do myself. But I must be MADE or reconstructed in that way in the future. A very interesting choose of words he used. Even though brief it says a lot. Kind of strange like he knew me, and he knew I would research what he said. And my research teaches me we will all be made pure into new glorified beings of ourselves, and after that we will still be learning, but we will be taught but Christ Himself in person on earth.
"Did these have any emotional effect on you?"
Emotionally? Yes in a loving and empathetic way. I've always had empathy but never to this degree. And understanding the other side truly exists my empathy has 10 fold of what it would have been. And the realization of the other side makes me look at life as a VERY precious gift that never ends. And yes, I am glad for having these experiences. The Reaper was spooky, but I researched him and I know who he is, he is simply a Harvester Angel. I'm not sure what's up with the black cape and staff, except for an intimidating appearance to mortals.
LOL I went from teary eyes to laughing on this post
Thinking back, if I had a video I wonder if he (Reaper) would have shown up in it?
I don't think so.
Even though both I and my girl friend saw the being I don't recall any shadow on the gravel road from him.... And she clearly saw the old man face and I saw clearly saw no face.
Good questions Mondo, and I thought a lot about why and what good. But never really about the emotional affects.
Now you know why I studied all religions.
And I do find the KJV Bible to be the most accurate for many, many reasons.
The Blue city, that's cool!
