In the late 1980s, Don Piper, a religious minister, had an experience that would change his life forever. He claims to have been to heaven. Not only does he claim that he was there, but he was able to describe it in accurate detail.
On a drive home from a church meeting, Piper crossed an old bridge and was hit by an 18-wheeler. When paramedics arrived on the scene, Don was declared dead. Yet, Don was in another stage of reality. He was instantly transported to heaven.
He describes heaven as a place of immense beauty. He says that there was praises being sung by many people that sounded beautiful. People in heaven seemed to appear the way he remembered them which should answer the question of what people look like in heaven. Yet, Piper realized this was not his time.
Another Reverend driving by the scene of the accident felt he had to be of assistance. He went over to Piper’s lifeless body and prayed for him. Almost instantly, Piper was awakened back to life. He spent many months in the hospital recuperating from the terrible accident. During this time he came to a realization that God chose him to see Heaven so that it would prepare him for the months of painful rehabilitation ahead.
