36-year-old Boris Pilipchuk, Senior Lieutenant in a police unit in Ukraine’s
Khemlnitskij District lives with his wife and three children in Novaya
Siniavka in the Starosiniavskij region. After doctors diagnosed his death,
he shocked everyone by returning from the dead. The following is an extract
from his report:
„I grew up a strict atheist. In 1996, I became a Christian after hearing
a sermon by Mariopol’s pastor Nikolai Ivashenko. As a Christian, I had
difficulties in my profession, but after a while, my colleagues liked to
listen to me tell of Jesus during breaks. I was physically very healthy.
On 27 July 1998, after returning home from work, I was suddenly unable
to move, and lost consciousness. I was taken to the hospital, where I lay
in a coma for several days, after which I was transferred to the Khelmitskij
District Clinic. The doctors diagnosed a hemorrhage affecting 95% of my
brain. All nine tests confirmed that I was clinically dead. My police colleagues
were shocked, and started to collect money for my coffin and burial. My
wife called pastor Nikolai, who organised many Christians to pray for me.
The doctors fought for my life for another 2 ½ hours, but were finally
forced to diagnose both clinical and biological death.
I saw everything from above, and was suddenly in heaven. I saw a fantastic
light, and a huge city, like a cube. Jesus met me: ‘You have a wife and
three children. Return to them - it is not yet time for you to be here,’
Return to them - it
is not yet time for you to be here!
I instantly returned to my body, which was being taken to the mortuary.
My wife stood next to the stretcher, crying. As I sat up, the staff fell
to the floor, shocked. They fled in all directions, screaming ‘Who are
you? What do you want? Leave us in peace!’ I told them not to be
afraid, and asked for clothes, and was then allowed to return home. Over
the next two weeks, I was examined by 15 different medical committees,
including neurologists and psychiatrists. They told me that if they had
not performed the diagnosis themselves on the evidence of the x-rays, cardiographs
etc., they would be unable to believe what had happened. They advised me
to keep the events secret, because people would otherwise consider me crazy.
They refused to record my resurrection officially, but have all decided
to follow Jesus in the meantime."
All physicians involved
decided to follow Jesus.
