Va.1. Explain “the Light at the End of the Tunnel” and Near Death Experiences.

Question:  I have heard so many on television and radio talk about seeing a great light at the end of the tunnel and the peace they have now. It there anything in the Bible about this?

Answer: These visions or dreams are nothing more than Satan’s counterfeits of God’s real peace. The real peace a Christian has is in trusting Jesus Christ as the One who paid for our sins on the cross. Romans 5:1 is God’s peace,

 "Therefore being justified (declared righteous) by faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"

I have never heard any of these, claiming the white light experience, say anything about Jesus Christ.

Satan is a liar and murderer (John 8:44). He can put wrong thoughts into your mind. Acts 5:3 is a good example,

"And Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart (conscience) to lie...".

Satan can give false visions, as he did to Eliphaz in Job 4:12-16. Eliphaz thought his "visions of the night" were from God and that God’s word and advice were to be applied to Job. Eliphaz proceeds to instruct Job in Chapters 4,5,15, and 22. Everything Satan gave to Eliphaz was right about God’s righteousness, holiness, judgment, veracity, etc. The lie was—making Eliphaz think all of this rebuke was for Job’s hidden sins; when, in reality, none of it was true.

The Lord speaks to Eliphaz in Job 42:7,

"My wrath is kindled against thee...for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath."

(See Verse 8 also.)

John 3:36 says,

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life."

— not the white light at the end of the tunnel!
