Ben is such a beautiful boy, I love the way he smiles each time he holds up a card telling us of a time that he was extremely happy. His testimony brings me that much closer to Jesus! Thank God and thank you Ben for this.

Paul Abigail Miller amen!!I've watched Ben's video,I think all the 3 times Ben cheated death,was a gift from Jesus so he could receive Jesus in his life,HE gave Ben 3 chances...

Amen!!!!! could not say it better. I am so glad someone thought the same as me about this stoIry. Because of Ben many young people are calling him a hero, but my concern is this rapper guy he looked up to, have you seen or heard his music it's awful!!! and now because of this story many kids are starting to listen to his music. I don't think Ben cheated death I believe it was God's mercy to try and get his attention! Iam sorry for his family its always sad to see someone so young die. It should be a wake up call to young people Jesus is coming any day are you ready?

Hello folks, a sad story because he was so young, but a happy ending knowing he went from this world to a MUCH better place.I have a story as well, am 59 yrs old, used to be quite a wild person, adventurous, pretty uncaring about others and myself, daredevil if you will...@ 27 yrs old, I was diving in a cave ( not certified and very unprepared), nevertheless being watched over by angels the whole time... I almost ran out of air (had about 5 minutes left), and prayed to Jesus to help me.At the time, I was absolutely terrified, cold, dark, breathing water thru my regulator causing coughing, which is very scary @ 60 ft. down, not knowing where the exit was, and if I was going to live or not.Anyway, here's the most important part, and I will remember it till my memory fails or I die, whichever comes first, and after what I've been thru, I am NOT afraid of death whatsoever... actually looking fwd to it very much! When I called out the name of Jesus, I felt very peaceful, calm, and amazingly, warm from head to foot.When I got home that evening, my wife ( married now 37 years) asked if I was in trouble that day.I said, yes, I almost died.She asked what time...I said, around 3 pm.She said, the Holy Spirit told me to stop what I was doing (washing dishes) and pray for your husband...he is in trouble...at first she discounted the admonishment, then, the holy spirit said again to pray for me, so she did. I will ALWAYS believe in intercession when you call out to Jesus for help.Every day we wake up is a blessing, so enjoy this life, and try to be a blessing to all you meet. God bless all, Dave Austin.

Your video touch my heart... A drunk driver hit our family car a few years ago killing my 5 yr old son Rip Brian Bishop we were all prounced dead at the scean of the accident. Both my husband and I described seeing the same bright white light and the warm feeling we both got memories of being somewhere that wasn't here on earth Ben describes it perfectly. Only I wasn't with my fav singer I was with my son he was playing with all these toys then the room filled with what I call angels....... I thought they were their to take us to the other side at first then I relizes it was just him going.... The light in the room became very very bright I could hear Brian laugh it was so bright I couldn't see I closed my eyes really tight and when I opened them the paramedics were on top of me giving me c, p,r I tried to close them again to get back to were I was with my son but no such luck.... Both my husband and I were left disabled I had my 2 kids in the car that night when a drunk drive hit us my 9 yr old son held on his little brother while he waited for help...... I know in my heart that such a place do exist cause I been their...... I believe god didn't leave me here to suffer and morn but because I have a job to finish here for him..... I believe when it's out turn to go Ben will be their waiting for you and Brian will be their for me.... God bless you and your daughter I truly know the pain you are going through....... But god and angels do exist.

What gets me is why he would feel proud? God is not proud 1 Corinthians 13:4-5?

These people who have been given a glimpse of life outside of space and time can help our faith, remembering always what St.Thomas Aquinas tells us "having faith is believing in what you don't see but the gift of that faith is to see what you believe" The dreams/ visions of St.John Bosco are also very amazing, he says there were colours which the eyes have never seen and music the ear never heard.

My sister also died on Christmas. 2nd of ten, Therese was born with spine+a+bif+id+ah( not sure how to spell it ), for her entire life, she was paralyzed from the waist down. She always smiled, but the doctor said "If she lives to be two, I'm amazed. if she lives to be five, that's a miracle". I am blessed to say that she died at the age of 29, and in a few months would have been 30. This summer her kidneys shut down. In the hospital, they put in a temporary port so they could do dialysis. After surgery to make two veins one for permanent dialysis, she came home. Dialysis was hard for her, often coming home throwing up, but she pushed on, asking the Lord for strength. When the new vein was healed/grown together enough, the doctors removed the port, leaving what was unexpected. My mother notice the Sunday after the surgery an infections. When she showed a nurse that worked at the dialysis place on Monday about the infection, the nurse told the doctor. The doctor asked if Therese had a fever, and the nurse told him that Therese never ran a fever with an infection. Sadly, the doctor was suborn and wouldn't listen. By Wednesday my mother told the dialysis place to give Therese something or she would go to the emergency. At that point it was to late, great damage had been done. They gave Therese antibiotics, that did nothing. By Thursday she could no longer bring food to her mouth. Mother rushed her to the ER, but didn't get a room till Friday. Therese went to heaven and back Friday, and told my mother the Experience. She saw our father who died last April, and my mother's five miscarriages, but most importantly she saw God, who told her it wasn't here time yet, but that she would soon be healed and she and our mother would go around and minister to people. Therese told God she didn't want to go back, and with going back and forth between heaven and earth Sunday, God and his amazing mercy said yes and Therese went to heaven At 4:45 am (Christmas morning) Though I miss her, I know she is in heaven with Jesus, walking around, likely jumping and dancing. Through her entire life, she was hospitalized over 200 times, and went through over 100 surgeries. I praise God for the day I get to be with both my Father and sister.

I was dumb struck as I watched each storycard revealed.Reading along, the haunting melody only adding to the obvious feeling of peace, serenity and surrender...not defeat. Ben is the victor, with ever lasting life. The winning of that battle is huge. The radiance that I felt in his shy smile, allows one to imagine that he had no fear of his fate, of his ultimate destination nor of the One to greet him...Some will undoubtedly question" Christian " labeling. Doesn't really matter, does it? We will all find out one day.Praise God, I feel sad, but also warmed by the fact that his family wanted to show a testimony to his faith, trust and comfort in God. Makes me wonder... Peace and comfort to those who knew and loved him.

I always rejoice when I hear that the devil has lost one and God has gained a soul that has been reborn into heaven and into the presence of the Lord God Almighty! I think the reason Ben cheated death several times is because God was showing mercy in His waiting to take Ben from this earth because He wanted Ben to have a chance to accept the gift of salvation and also have an awesome testimony that will touch the lives of people he loved and also people all over the world who sees this video. What greater testimony than one that says they had placed their faith and trust in Jesus for their Savior and didn't just believe in Jesus, but his life reflected that. One thing that always comes to my mind when I hear in the news about someone dying is "did they have a personal relationship with Jesus so that they would go directly to heaven and also that their true treasure to leave behind is their legacy of their relationship with Jesus, or did they waste their lives doing things that would bring glory and attention for themselves, gain approval and acceptance and importance in the eyes of other people?" Then I pray that they are indeed in heaven. I also think if a person has truly chosen a relationship with Jesus, they should tell someone so when their time comes , there will be someone to stand up and tell everyone there that they are indeed in heaven instead of leaving everyone not knowing one way or another. I feel that if a person is living for the Lord, their life should show it, as God's words says it, "they are known by the fruit the produce", but sometimes people who live quiet and private lives may not tell anyone and they also have not talked to their loved ones and friends and shared that gift of salvation with them. Salvation wasn't meant to be a secret! We are all on borrowed time! we have no guarantee for the next breath, the next blink of our eyes, the next heart beat, and no one knows when their time will be up! We can't waste any time! We will be held accountable for souls that don't make it to heaven when we could have told them. I would rather have my loved ones mad at me than to keep the peace by keeping quiet. I pray that this video is part of Ben's legacy, that souls will be sealed and saved for heaven because those watching will feel God's presence and will chose not to take a chance by waiting.

To Ben's parents, look at various different comments left by the viewers, each of us received a little something from this video, the Lord is speaking almightly through your son. Thanks for sharing.

I've seen the light too... not at my death, but my husbands. I was given the blessing of experiencing the light, and watched my husband leave with his parents, who had died years before...the light that had all but no sound, was so bright you could barely look at it, but I could see all.......I knew he had gone before they told me....I found myself comforting the 10+ people who had been trying to save his life...letting them know that it was going to be alright... the lesson? God's grace is around us all the time and for those of us who struggle, its sure nice to have beautiful reminders that he loves us....unconditionally...=)

May God bless Ben's parents and sis! Ben is such an inspiration and I want to meet him in heaven!

How can anyone not beleive in God? Once you experiance his peace and love there's no denying him. I'm just proud to know that theirs still teens out there like this one that no matter what the world throws at them they still stand firm in their faith and not let anything ruin their relationship with our GOD!

AMEN! I am tired of all these Christians putting Christ in this kids mouth. I'm sorry about this and I hope he did love Christ but If I loved Christ and was going to die I would have turned this into a salvation message! What is this church coming to today.
