Beyond the Veil. (3-CD/Audio Series). The time to consider the realities of Heaven and Hell is now. Jim loves to share the vivid sights and sounds of Heaven and what it’s like to be around angels. He also shares his too close encounter with Hell. Jim says you can take comfort in the six simple words that propelled him into the presence of Jesus—who sent Jim back for good reason!

My guest was brain dead
for 11 hours,

My guest was brain dead
for 11 hours,

went to Heaven, sent back
with a message from Heaven.

We have a Hebrew word.
It’s called “Bashert.”

It means, “It’s meant to be.”
I tell you, it is

“Bashert,” that you be
watching right now.



SR: Now, my guest,

I’ve just gotten to
really know over the last day.

He’s a retired pilot.

You put in a lot of hours
flying. How many hours?

Well, just over 20,000.

Just over 20,000.

He’s not — he was not
a believer in the Messiah.

His wife was a believer.

Is it fair to say
that your God was things,


JW: Yeah, Sid,
and I’m ashamed to admit it.

I mean, I lived what I
thought was

the quintessential
American-Canadian dream

of a successful career,
successful businesses,

and yet I would wake up
in the middle of the night,

and I’d have this
yearning inside of me,

and I foolishly interpreted
that as meaning

I needed a faster plane,
a bigger car, a larger boat.

SR: But one day —

Again, he’s his own god,
so to speak — he wakes up,

and something unusual,
his arms and his legs are numb.

He gets diagnosed with a disease
frankly I’ve never heard.

It’s Guillain-Barre?

JW: It’s Guillain-Barre.

Guillain- close.

And if I understand this right,
this is life threatening,

and you could end up paralyzed,

but actually, if you don’t
get treatment right away,

which you did not, what did they
tell you to expect?

Well, it’s often fatal,

and Guillain-Barre
is the deterioration

of the myelin sheath
on your brain stem,

and it’s similar to
if you strip the insulation

from an electrical cord,

and all the signals
from your brain

become pain and interrupted,

and I went from being a guy
that flew jets and raced cars

to someone completely
dependent on nurses

and my wife, who is a nurse,
for my care. They —

SR: You told me that the pain
was so bad that you had pain

when you blinked
your eyebrow — eyelids.

JW: I actually trained myself
to blink one eye at a time.

SR: Because of the pain.

Every blink of my eye was pain,

not just in my eyes
but throughout my whole body.

My whole nervous system
had been interrupted

by this incredible,
debilitating disease.

SR: And all of a sudden,
the pain gets so bad

that you take a whole bottle
of pain medicine.

I mean, but didn’t you realize
that could be fatal?

JW: You know, Sid,
it was a gradual thing,

and yet to give me
some semblance of normalcy,

some ability to sleep 2
or 3 hours a night,

I began to take more of the
medication than I should have,

and I was trying
to get up the energy

to get out of the truck

and inspect the field
that I was trying to sell,

and I saw a vial
of prescription medication.

I should have known.

All I was consumed
with was stopping the pain.

As I took the last
of the medication that evening,

and I’m facing
the setting sun —

for some reason,
I didn’t plan it that way —

all of a sudden,
my feet begin to burn

as though they were in fire.

My hands and fingertips
started to burn,

and as that burning sensation
made its way up my body

and in my arms
toward my chest,

I knew that I had done
something truly catastrophic,

and it was then that I said
the first three of the six words

that I believe are responsible
for me being here today,

along with the prayers
of my family.

And in that last instant
in my consciousness,

I looked at the setting sun,
and I raised my hand,

and I remember
it was shaking violently.

I cried out,
“God, forgive me.”

I cried out from a part of me
that I didn’t even know existed.

Not out of fear.

I’d faced death
a couple of times as a pilot.

Never flinched.

But I had this
overwhelming sense

in those last nanoseconds
of my life

that I had wasted
this beautiful life

that the Creator
had given me,

and I had never honored Him
for that life,

and I was just trying
to express my sorrow

for not having led
a better life.

After that prayer,

which is half of the prayer
that got you back,

what do you remember?

JW: And suddenly, I became aware
that the horrific pain

that I had endured
for all those years

since the onslaught
of the Guillain-Barre, was gone.

I felt more alive
than I had ever felt before,

and the pain was gone.
I felt so great.

I slid out of the truck.
I walk about 15 feet away,

and I’m feeling as though
A heavy wet overcoat

has been taken off from me

and all the pain
has gone with it,

and then I look back
at the truck,

and there’s someone in my truck,
and I’m absolutely enraged.

Who would dare get in my truck?

And not only that, he’s sleeping
on the steering wheel.

The moment when I realized
that the guy in the truck

was me was truly

The next thing that happened,

you’re flying,
but there’s no airplane.

Finally I’m saving on fuel.

But I begin to rise.

I can look through
the rear window of the truck

and see my body
slumped over the wheel.

I’m over the truck.

I can look down
in the bed of the truck, Sid,

and see my toolbox,
and being a former pilot,

I’m a good judge of altitude,

and I’m at suddenly
100 feet, 200 feet.

I’m drifting slowly backwards,
and I’m rising.

I’m rising,
and I am terrified.

I can look out
over the countryside.

I tell you what.

Hold that thought.

He finds himself
in a very unusual place,

almost a crossroads
between Heaven and Hell.

When we come back, we’ll find
out what he did about it.

Hell was actually —
he actually heard

Hell and demons
calling him by his name.

Be right back.


[Music] >> We’ll be right back
to “It’s Supernatural!”


>> We now return
to “It’s Supernatural!”


SR: Well, our people are on the
edge of their seat right now.

So you start going up,
and it sounds —

I’ve heard this story
from others before,

sort of like a tunnel
that you’re going through.

What is this?

Well, I got to about 1,200 feet.

I tilted my head back,

and this beautiful golden circle
appeared in the sky,

and then the center
filled with gold.

It opened, and suddenly
it was as though

I had put all the thrusters
on the jet engines.

I went zipping into
this tunnel of light,

which I’m sure many people
have heard of.

And I’m traveling
at tremendous speed.

I’m leaning back
at about 45 degrees.

I have incredible
sensation of speed,

but typically you feel
the wind in your face.

There was no wind,

and there was no rushing noise
of the sound of travel

and no jet engines,
and tremendous speed.

I bet —
I’m guessing Mach 1 possibly,

and within a very quick
period of time,

I recognized that there’s
a brilliant light

at the end of this tunnel.

I come to it.
It’s covered in mist.

I step out because I feel
the tunnel closing behind me.

I put my foot down.
The mist cleared.

I looked down,
and I can’t believe it.

I’m standing on the most
incredible green grass

you could ever imagine.

I now know where
the saying comes.

The grass is always greener
on the other side.


SR: I got you!

They’re talking about Heaven.

SR: But I’ve been
told the colors are —

It’s greener than any green
we have here.

JW: If we have a spectrum
of colors on Earth,

Heaven has 10,000 times
10,000 more.

It is a feast for the eyes.

SR: Okay.
But then you see some darkness.

JW: I look up from that
beautiful grass

that radiated light
from underneath my feet,

and there’s as though
a dividing line,

a median has been drawn
in front of me.

To the right, there’s this
beautiful, mist-colored field.

The mist is laying over it.
We pilots call it ground effect.

There’s beautiful flowers
showing through it,

but then to the left
of that line, Sid, it was as —

so different because
that beautiful green grass

went from green to brown
to scorched to black

and then dropped off
in a crevasse.

And I stepped forward

and looked down into
this coal black blackness,

and then I saw something
like a dim light at the bottom,

like a light of fire, red fire,

and suddenly,
I heard the strangest sound,

like two massive iron doors
opening and screeching on hinges

that had not been used
in a long time.

And suddenly emerging
from those doors

was the most hideous creature
you could ever imagine.

Hollywood could never
duplicate what I saw.

So I’m looking. I can’t —
I see this thing coming out,

and suddenly, I’m assailed
by this horrific smell

that comes out of that pit,

an odor of death and decay
and of things long dead,

things that should never
see the light of day,

and it gazed up at me,

and with its fiery eyes,
looked at me.

It started to make its way up
the wall of that pit,

but its body, Sid,

was formed of a rolling mass
of dark cloud with a face on it.

And I heard
the most horrific things,

something screaming within
the body of this creature,

and then what absolutely
horrified me

was I heard my name,
my name, being called.

This creature knew me.

It knew me,
and it was coming for me,

and I was terrified.
I mean, I’d love to tell you

I stood there
and wanted to do battle.

I was terrified, and it reared
up out of that pit over me,

and the most hideous face

massive in its size,
snarled at me,

and there’s this feeling
of an anticipation of glee

that it couldn’t wait
to get its claws on me,

and I was so horrified,

I turned from the darkness
toward the light.

We are creatures of the light,

and I automatically
turned towards the light,

and when I did,
I sensed this creature,

its breath
on the back of my neck,

the stench of its breath,

and I felt a sharp claw
move down my back,

and it was at that point —

remember I said
there are six words

and the prayers of my family

that make it possible for me
to be here today.

And the first three words,
I cried out in the truck,

“God, forgive me.”
In my absolute terror,

and I had no reason
to expect any help from God,

I turned myself toward that mist

with that creature
breathing at my back,

and I lifted both hands,

and I cried out,
“God, help me! Help me!”

And, Sid, instantly, three stars
appeared in that mist

like distant points of light
but coming rapidly toward me,

and I focused on them
to keep my mind off

what was snarling behind me

because I could hear
the saliva from its jaws

dropping on the ground
behind me.

And I concentrated
on those lights.

They came so rapidly, Sid,
incredible speed.

My pilot instincts took over.

I was afraid they were going
to make too fast a landing,

but they did a beautiful job.
They took form.

They were angels.
As they approached me,

this beautiful light
flooded over me,

went beyond me
and struck that creature,

and when the light of the angel
struck the creature,

it scrambled back down
in that hole like a rat

running for cover.
God had heard the cry of someone

that had never turned
to Him in his life.


When we come back,

I want Jim to share
about what Jesus,

as well as the angels, have:
transferable, sticky love.

I’ve never heard
about sticky love! Have you?

SR: There is so much
that this man experienced,

but when I was reading
about your experience,

I was reading the chapter
on sticky love.

Tell me about that.

JW: The sticky love of God.

SR: Yeah.

JW: The angels came forward,
and I —

they spoke to me through
thought transference,

and as they put their wing
around me and held me close,

I felt so safe and protected,

and I reached out
to touch the angel’s arm,

and, Sid, when I did, I felt I
had been impolite in doing that,

and so I pulled my hand back,
and when I did,

the light of the angel’s
body clung to my hand

until I got it back
about 6 to 10 inches

and then let go
and went into its body,

and that’s why I tell people
every chance I get,

the love of God is sticky.
It wants to cling to you.


SR: And you told me
that God was in process

of replacing
all your selfishness,

all your greed,
all your lust for love.

Explain that.

I don’t think a human —

a soul or spirit can go
through this experience

and not be profoundly changed,

and I feel as though
I have been truly born again.

Not only have I come back
from the grave,

my soul has come back
from despair.

My spirit has found God again,

and I will be
eternally grateful.

SR: Tell me about
the hall of knowledge.

JW: Heaven, you
have to suspend your —

all that you’ve been taught
about physics and gravity

and time and linear space
and spatial references.

They simply do not exist
in Heaven.

But I was shown
the holy city.

I mean, there’s incredible
buildings of light,

not hewn from stone, Sid,
but hewn from blocks of light,

that exuded this warmth
and love,

and I saw the halls
of knowledge,

the halls of music,
the halls of learning,

the halls of everything
that you wanted to learn

about the mysteries of God.

SR: Halls of healing.

JW: And then they showed me
the nursery, the nursery, Sid.

I think it speaks
to the compassion of our God

that little souls
that are aborted,

God gathers their spirit back,

and they’re raised
in the nursery in Heaven.

SR: Tell me about the size
of your book of life.

I’m ashamed to talk about it,

but in the hall of records,
they keep a record of everything

that you’ve done in
and with your life,

and it’s not to create
an I gotcha moment.

It’s for when you are shown
the book of your life,

and when they pull —

the angel pulled mine
out of his robe

and opened it for Jesus to read,
I was absolutely shamed

and mortified that all I had
to show for a life lived

that I thought was the ultimate
in success

was this small, thin book,
no bigger than a diner —

roadside diner menu.

And I was ashamed
that that’s all.

I should have —
with all the resources

and the time that I had,

I should have had a book
as thick as a Bible,

filled with all the good deeds
that I could have done.

As Charles Dickens
said in his novel,

“Mankind should have been
my business,

and instead, I was only
involved in my self ego.”

I am determined now that
if I have the opportunity

to go back again
to do everything good I can

so that when Jesus reads
the book of my life again,

He’s going to need three angels
and a forklift to open it.


SR: Now, you’ve got to —
you have got to tell me.

When you looked in the eyes
of Jesus, what did you see?

JW: It was the apex of
everything that happened to me

because when His eyes
locked on mine

and He smiled at me,
Sid, Jesus smiled at me,

but when I looked into those
eyes of gray and green and blue,

I was lost in eternity
because in those eyes,

I saw sadness for the way
I had lived my life.

I saw sadness for the way
we as mankind have rejected

His Father’s message, but I saw
incredible love for me, for me,

someone that deserved none —
nothing, for me,

and I also saw mixed in with
that love in the eyes of Jesus,

forgiveness for me, forgiveness
for the life that I had lived

and a chance to do it again.
I am eternally grateful.

My life, our lives, Lorraine’s
life and mine, are now his.

SR: Let me tell you a couple
of things that you need to know.

While all this is going on,
his wife and family are praying,

and he sees it.
He can see them praying.

He comes back,

and guess what happened
to his incurable illness?

Went out the window!
