Crystal McVea appeared this week on Good Morning America promoting her book, which was also written by Alex Tresniowski Waking up in Heaven. It’s based upon her personal experience being in heaven with God.
Crystal McVea stopped breathing on December 10, 2009, and she went into full cardiac arrest. She claims to have spent nine minutes in heaven and met God, but she came back because she heard her mom’s voice pulling her back to earth.
McVea recounts her experience of being in heaven and what it felt like. For example, one of the things she mentions in heaven is about the usage of senses, which is fuller in the celestial way than it is here on earth. Not only could she see light, but she could touch it or even taste it. While in heaven, she realized God just didn’t love, but that He was love.
She writes about her life before her near-death-experience and afterwards and about some of the people along the way, and also about the nudges she received from God.
One of them is about a young woman by the name of Amber who is also known as the “teen whisperer.” Amber’s childhood was rocky. By the end of her freshman year of high school, she turned to drugs and became promiscuous and became pregnant by her senior year. She didn’t believe in abortions, but got one anyways. A month after a successful abortion without any sexual relations she discovered she was pregnant. At 21 weeks, she went into early labor, delivered a baby girl weighing in at 15 ounces who was less than a foot long. The baby only survived for 45 minutes before going home to Jesus.
The chapter on "The Question" will change the questions you have with God since they will not matter when, or if you do meet up with Him. There are pictures included in the book of Crystal and her family along with a group discussion guide, and she does back her writing up with scripture.
Waking up in Heaven is about keeping the faith, our free will and second chances.
“God is there with all of us, always, no matter what we’re doing. You don’t have to see a glowing light to know that God is with you. You don’t have to die and go to heaven to know you are in His presence. All you have to do is want to have a relationship with Him. All you have to do is look for Him." “Seek and you will find,” it says in Matthew 7:7. “Knock and the door will be opened to you.”
