Mickey Robinson's Near Death Experience

I’ve never met anybody who had ever told me personally about knowing God or anything supernatural other than historically what I knew from stories from the bible. I never met one person who told me about having a real relationship with Jesus. I never knew about the need to really come into relationship with the Lord through Jesus. I was busy getting it on.

But you know there’s not enough excitement in the world to experience, so you’re always going to want more. And I liked stuff that was edgy like skiing and aviation. So I started taking flying lessons and I had a lot of fun jumping out of airplanes so I became a sport parachutist. And that really got me, I became obsessed with sky-diving. It really consumed my life. My existence revolved around that 30 to 60 seconds of free-fall and that five-minute parachute ride and then I had to do it again. It was like a drug, like an addiction. And then all of a sudden one night all of that changed.

Shortly after take-off, I don’t really recall much because I was kind of dozing off sitting on the floor next to the pilot because they had removed the seats in a new aircraft. And I was awakened by a sound that was unfamiliar. It was the sound of the motor going completely silent. The pilot turned to me and slapped me and said “that’s it we’re going down!”. So we just pitched forward and plummeted straight down at over a hundred miles per hour. And this was seen out of the cockpit and was told to me but I don’t actually recall this: We were going straight to the ground and headed right towards a gigantic oak tree, but we didn’t hit that tree going several hundred miles per hour. My face stopped my body going a hundred miles per hour. Then the airplane cartwheeled on its wings and slammed on the ground.

If you could just picture the aircraft, you’d think no one could have survived. So there was obviously injury and confusion. The two students got pushed out the doorway. One of my friends who was a very experienced jumper was the fourth man out and saw me and the pilot and assumed we were leaving too. Just as he was going out, the plane went up in flames and he was running away screaming and realized I was trapped inside along with the pilot. And this brave man who was my friend went back into the plane and saw me trying to jump and escape where the wing had been torn but I was stuck because something about my equipment or clothing was cut. I was soaked in fuel and I was on fire from head to toe. Like you see in the movies, my body was engulfed in flames and this is where God did the first miracle.

This man grabbed on my parachute harness with his bare hands and tore that loose. That’s two thousand pounds of tensile strength in each one of those straps. He pulled so hard he pulled the thumbs out of his sockets and he dragged me out of the plane and slapped the fire out of me but it kept re-igniting. He tried to go back to the pilot but couldn’t because he was burned alive. They rushed me off to the hospital, obviously it was horrible. They saw I sustained very serious injuries. I had a brain injury, I had burns over a large portion of my body and I found out my right eye was blind. And I had tremendous cuts and this shock from the crash. They told my family I was going to die, they told my sister to come that day because I was not going to be there by that afternoon.

I had an experience I’ve never heard about and I never heard anything like this. As I was laying there in that condition, wracked with pain and discomfort in every way possible, suddenly my inner man, the real me, my spirit sat up out of my body and I could feel my legs go through the springs of the bed. And my spirit came out of my body as if you would take a glove off your hand and instantly I was in the spiritual world. Instantaneously I knew this was the real world and this man I was seeing was the real me now.

I was completely separated from my body. And I remember even turning around and looking at it. I was transferred immediately into a spiritual dimension. Everything about the spirit world is more real than this world. The colors are brighter. The edges of everything are sharper. The emotions are just enhanced. They are clearer. The thing that really struck me the most was there was complete absence of the awareness of time. Everything in this world is relative to time. You wake up this morning and then you have to go to bed at night. Something is new it will get old. Something is born it will die. Everything in the physical plane, in the natural plane is relative to time. But everything in the spiritual plane is relative to eternity so what had been natural to be aware of time was totally gone, and I was totally aware of eternity and it was shocking, it was stunning to be conscious and to know what eternity is.

Also logic and reasoning doesn’t happen. Based on the sum total of all my intelligent thoughts that I’ve learned: I had a death and now I’m in the spirit world. It’s like you just know that you know that you know, it’s like having a revelation constantly. And it was incredible. And I knew I was traveling, I could feel that I was traveling. As I looked ahead there was this pure white light, it was whiter than the whitest snow and brighter than ten thousand suns and yet I could look right at it and it was compelling. And it was like I was being towed like a tractor beam. And as I was looking at it I could feel this anticipation. But then simultaneously at my right side, I could feeling something and I looked and there was this blackness sweeping.

Now this blackness as I looked at it, instantly I was aware of its complete nature. It was eternal like I was experiencing eternity. It was without any matter, it was without any life, it was void and it was forever non-negotiable, cut off from the source of all life. And the more that I looked at it, the faster it would sweep and the more that occurred, the more intense the nature of being cut off and sealed forever and separated seemed. It was horrific. Horrific. I would never be able to stand near anybody who could say “go to hell” after that. Because you wouldn’t want the worst person in the world, you wouldn’t want Adolf Hitler, Bin Laden, Saddam, you wouldn’t want any human being to go in there. It was so horrible.

As that was sweeping, it got down to eclipsing this light. It was like you were in a room and as you were closing the door in this dark room, there was this little space between the door emitting light. It wasn’t a doorway, it was a real place I was seeing and I was feeling. And as it was closing, it was eclipsing and now I’m standing at the very edge, at the precipice of eternal separation. And I scream out of my spirit: “I’m sorry I want to live! Give me another chance!” And before that door was to close, I was standing the presence of the Almighty God and instantly I knew I would never die for eternity. Instantly, I knew who this being was who was off on this side of me who I didn’t see.

I was standing in this river of golden radiation. It looked like a moving river of golden light. This river went that way, it was underneath me, it was going right through me. This river was alive. I don’t know how to describe it. This river was alive and going right through me. I was more alive than anyone can imagine. This is the height of the experience of life. Filled up with life. And so somehow I knew this being was going to take care of me for eternity. I didn’t see the New Jerusalem, I didn’t see any angels in heaven, I didn’t see any people going before me. This was the max though, I was so filled with just the love and all of God’s majesty, all of his authority, all of his love. Everything was just flowing through me, vibrating like a tuning fork the very essence of God’s nature.

When God spoke to me and not in a language you and I were talking now. But the knowledge of his purpose, the word of his purpose came in through that same light and I was taken back the same way like I was being reeled in like a kite and went through the space and time of this dimension. As my spirit settled into my body and as I could hear out of these ears and see out of this eye, I came to a room kind of like how they beam you up in Star Trek, and I heard myself speaking in this beautiful language that I had never known or heard anyone talk about before. It was a beautiful language but when my brain turned on, I thought "what in the heck is this language?" and I was no longer this person who was dying and dead.

I was born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. I had never heard about that. For years I wondered what was that blackness and why did it sweep down to where it was just a sliver like about half an inch away. Years later, God revealed it to me. It was really a historical record of my life. That for all the years that I had lived, I was in darkness and God gave me this space to cry out to him. And in that space it changed my future, my destiny my whole purpose. God loved me the whole time, God was with me.

Please don’t wait until you’re that desperate. You have a chance today to cry out to God. It’s not complicated, it’s not religious. It’s certain my prayer wasn’t all that complicated. It wasn’t about religion it was that I needed a life. And there’s not one of us before God who doesn’t need the whole life that he has to offer. It’s usually fear that keeps us from doing it. Or we’re afraid we’re not good enough, that’s the whole deal. We need God.
