Tag Archive: Matt 25-40


We often hear about after death experience where the soul of someone dies, sees the light, and meets Jesus Christ. In Lee Strobel’s film, ‘The Case for Heave,’ he explores the concept and interviews people who had the experience. These experiences are spoken of not only by Christians but often by non believes in Jesus Christ, which causes a life-changing experience. Oh, a Christian retreat weekend, I heard a former Jewish man who said he died and met Jesus Christ, who told him it was not his time. The experience caused him to change his former beliefs and made him a more caring individual.

In John 20:29 (NIV), Jesus says, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” It would seem that often Jesus comes to individuals in an after-life experience to bring them to Him. People who already believe do not need to have that experience. When I was about 19 years old, I was sitting in a parked car with a friend on a summer day when a stranger about my age walked up to the car, put his face inches from mine, and said, ”I am Jesus!” and walked away. My friend said, “That guy was messing with you.” However, it gave me the notion of what if the stranger you make eye contact with and leaves you with the feeling he knows everything about you could be an angel or even Jesus Christ.

Now that I am retired, I decided to combine those two concepts. So I wrote a story that deals with what if a person were dying and had an out-of-body experience and, instead of going to Heaven, followed a homeless holy man and observed how people reacted to the least of humankind. Matt 25:40 on Amazon books by Anthony Raimondo presents such as story.
