What does Jesus or heaven really look like? It’s a question many have explored before and one Journalists recently asked Kizito John Sekamatte, the 14-year-old boy who says he went to heaven alive and interacted with Christ.
“At my first encounter, it was a voice I heard calling me three (3) times. It went silent again. Three days later, I saw a very bright light, however it disappeared too. Later I saw someone with wings, but he was covered in bright light, I could not see him clearly,”
Following his purported experience, Kizito’s family that stays in Lweza, Entebbe told one local television station on Monday they receive visitors many of who address Kizito as “a man of God” and constantly meet him for prayers.
Kizito described visiting Heaven as a glorious experience, one filled with “ecstasy, calm, tranquility.”
“I saw angle Micheal holding out his sword and a chair so bright – I did not look at it closely. A voice spoke to me and said; that is the chair where my Father seats,”
“There is a day I slept from 10:00 to 6:00, but my spirit had left my body. I had gone to heaven. I saw Mary, mother of Jesus. She held me up and carried me.”
“On one occasion, a bring light came towards me so fast with a flash and a door immediately opened. I saw so many stones of gold and they told to walk along the path. I found the Uganda Martyrs in a room so big and appealing. One of the Martyrs, Kizito… came towards me. They didn’t tell me anything but were happy to see me. I danced and clapped hands with them as we praised with other angles,”
During the encounter, Kizito John Sekamatte said God gave him a message to deliver to people on earth.
“He told me; I have sent you to spread my word and heal my people across the four corners of the earth. He said I should not be afraid for he is with me,”
When he was conceived in the womb of his mother, Namwama, she started hearing unknown voices and was diagnosed with rare infections. This led to the pre-mature birth of Kizito.
“The following day was however Martyrs day celebration,” Namwama told media.
Are Visits to Heaven Real?
In recent years, Christian booksellers have inundated the evangelical world with testimonies from people who say they visited heaven in near-death experiences or real life. Their stories are full of specific details about what heaven is like, who is there, and what is happening in the celestial realm.
Billy Graham says:
Our proof of heaven, however, doesn’t depend on alleged reports; at best, they can only confirm what God has already told us in His Word, the Bible. Instead, our assurance of heaven depends solely on the promises God has given us in His Word. From one end of the Bible to the other, we’re reminded that we weren’t meant for this world alone, but we were meant to live in God’s presence forever. The Bible says, “Our citizenship is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20).
How do we know those promises are true? Ultimately, we know it because Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Think of it this way. The only way we could know for sure that heaven exists would be for someone to die and go there—and then come back to life and tell us about it. And that’s exactly what Jesus did. By His death and resurrection Jesus Christ overcame death, our final enemy. Jesus’ promise is true: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies” (John 11:25).
