Yes, I do believe it is highly possible that a person can die, then come back again. And I believe it is happening more within the last decade or so. I believe this because we are obviously living in the "last days", and God is trying to reach as many people as He can, to all those who will recieve Him. God wants us to see that what He says is true. Sadly though, even though they may experience it, or talk to someone who has, still refuse to believe, they still rather believe a lie.

NDE or Near Death Experiences (Also refered to as tunneling by many)
Before I remark on what I think a NDE may be, it helps if we undertake a brief analysis of the average NDE.
The following information is taken from 'Signs os the Times" April 2013 a Seventh Day Adventist publication. Though I do not come to the same conclusions as the SDA, their observations seem to be accurate and profound as they try to discover the cause or root to NDE's.
NDE is a experience in which the persons vital "functions (heartbeat, breathing stop, yet after being revived...give fantastic accounts of what they saw while they were 'dead'."
"Brain cells only begin to die... after four to six minutes without oxygen. Hearts can be resuscitated after fifteen minutes of 'Death'...circumstances such as hypothermia can prolong this process...in other words...he or she wasn't actually dead when it happened!...That's why they call them 'Near-Death Experiences'.
Observations, or what most participants experience:
1. 1 out of 3 near death people experience a NDE
2. OF those almost all hear a "a buzzing sound or a ring"
3. 3 out of 4 have the "the sensation of going through a tunnel"
4. 2 out of 3 report an "apparent release from the body"
5. 3 out of 4 report a "Light at the end of the tunnel"
6. Not all lights " at the end of the tunnel" are NDE, the tunnel affect can be triggered by "epilepsy, migraine headaches, meditation, and drugs such as LSD...even falling asleep triggers this reaction in some people."
The SDA concludes that a NDE is a "person's subjective reaction to the dying process." In other words the SDA believe that an NDE is as they put it a "fraud". The SDA conclusion is solely influenced because they believe in "Soul Seep" or in short they believe in nothing after death until the resurrection. However the SDA fail to take in account that our body has a Spirit, Body and Soul. The Spirit (breath of life) which immediately goes to the Lord (Eccl 3:21), the Soul which waits can be heard by God (Rev. 6:9), and the Body that sleeps until the resurrection (1 Corinth 15:52, 1 Thess 4:14-16).
The NDE is identical to Astral travel. This is the same experience some people have while sleeping or meditating.
People who employ themselves in Druid rituals practice this in what some call 'Tunneling'.
Incredibly, many people who claim to have been abducted by aliens claim many similar experiences. Some even returning with physical marks on their bodies like surgical scars.
I have several schools of thought on this subject.
1. ELF (Low Frequency Currents) waves highly contribute to these experiences. Since our brains operate on waves from 1 to 20 htz. I question what is the htz. in the hospitals with all the machinery all around? Could a certain amount of ELF waves contribute to the NDE? Furthermore, I believe our government transmits these energy waves to targeted individuals and those targeted experience this phenomena most (mostly buzzing). Also, I think more study needs to be done on people with migraine headaches. My husband gets severe migraines and many times experiences the tunnel, light, and buzzing. I have asked him to think of someone next time this happens and see if they appear in the light. Is there frequency altering their brain waves? Is this what causes to headaches? I am curious to know the result.
2. In the Satanic circles, I believe they use energy (negative spiritual perhaps) to further their demonic takeovers. Former witch William Schnobellan said that there are 5 stages in Satan worship, all of which invite demons into your soul. The 5th being a complete total takeover of the body by the demon. He said that they worshiped Lucifer the bearer of Light and that tunneling is a part of spiritual gifts from Lucifer.
So in conclusion I think both of my theories may be intertwined. ELF waves may contribute to a NDE, Satan may know this and use it to make his slaves feel illuminated as they experience satanic worship. As for the alien abductions, I believe that it is wicked people within our government experimenting with 'Free-Energy' and making people think that they were abducted.
As for the Christians who experience a NDE. They should check their vision with Scripture. Many report seeing beautiful women angels. No where in the Scriptures are Angels presented as women. Other historical books like Josephus, Jasher, and Enoch concur with the Bible. This alone throws out 90 % of the NDE's. We must remember that Satan will present himself as an 'Angel of Light'.
A perfect example of a NDE proved false is the account given by Todd Burpo of his 4 year old son Colton in the book Heaven is For Real.
1. In the book, Colton has an image of what Jesus looks like. Colton said that this was what Jesus looked like.
The Scriptures directly teach against this.
...If any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
Colton picked out a certain picture of Jesus among hundreds. This picture is different in that a little girl painted it. She claimed that Jesus and angels speak to her. She was 10 when she painted the picture and at the time she claimed to be a Christian. She is about 18 today and claims that all roads lead to God. God is whatever you think Him to be as long as you believe in a higher power. So Buddhist, Muslim, or whatever, you are ok, as long as that path leads you to God.
Conclusion: If she hears voices, It's satanic.
2. Colton claimed that Jesus had Markers in His Hands. As Colton showed his dad, he pointed to the palms of his hands indicating nail scars. It is proved historically that the Romans pierced the wrist with the nails, not the palm of the hands as it would be impossible to hold up the weight of the arm without ripping the hand. Also, medically speaking the wrist is considered part of the hand.
In conclusion, the Lord is not in this Book.

"I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago...such an one caught up to the third heaven...
How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." (2 Corinth 12:2-4)
Of all the Godly men of God in the Bible, only a few were shown heaven, and Paul could not describe it's splendor.
