About the Book

Book: Climbing into Eternity

Author: Michele Pulford

Genre: Non-Fiction

Release Date: April 2018

“I died twice and came back to tell about it.”

Michele flirted with death for six years, trying to numb her pain following a sexual pervert’s attack. Attempting to protect herself, she allowed hatred of men to control her, and used mind control to manipulate others. Suffering with acute anorexia nervosa, she was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital at age twenty-three.

She woke up in hell, a place of eternal damnation, horror, torment, and fire. Rescued by the Savior whose soft, gentle voice she had rejected, Michele was given a new chance at life and turned wholeheartedly to the Lord.

When her body was completely paralyzed from an anaphylactic allergy attack as a young mother, she found life leaving her body once again. “This time,” she says, “I was ushered into the splendorous glory of Heaven—a place of almost indescribable light and love.”

Sent back to tell her story, Michele Pulford warns others of the horrors of the kingdom of darkness, and tells them of the glory of true abundant life in God’s kingdom of light.

This personal love story, as well as a story about death and eternal life, is both a warning and a promise, and ultimately an unforgettable account of the love of God that would not let a young woman go.

More from Michele

After a sexual pervert’s attack at ten years of age, I invited evil into my life. I became an embittered, hateful teenager consumed by acute anorexia with murderous hate towards men. This led me into an abusive marriage of two years which ended with a failed murder attempt. Due to my failure I landed up DOA at my local hospital from premeditated suicide. On dying, I was taken to the evil and fiery demon invested accusing, tormenting pit of hell. It was here where the miraculous Light and Life of Jesus ripped through and rescued me.

I began my new life with my best friend, the Holy Spirit. Miraculously I married my high school sweetheart. The miraculous continued when after being declared completely barren, God’s love and grace stepped in resulting with me giving birth to a son and a daughter. Our family joy was shadowed by my soul-destroying bulimic addiction which God’s grace eventually set me free from. The life-death challenges did not end there. I found myself in an intense battle with witchdoctors as well with the dangers of onset anaphylactic attacks. It was one of these attacks that found me dying once again, with my husband and doctor watching. This time I was taken to the gates of heaven and glory. This is my story of life and death, heaven and hell, blessing and cursing.

 

My Review of Climbing into Eternity:

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read Climbing into Eternity, but this book spoke to me on many levels. Even if you took away the experiences the author had with hell and Heaven, the truths I was reminded of were priceless. Always praising and thanking God for who He is despite what circumstances I’m going through; that God wants to heal us of all the bondage/addictions we suffer from and will stop at nothing to help us gain that freedom when we truly ask for His help, and even when we have been saved from eternal damnation through salvation, we still sometimes have to fight (with God’s help) to gain victory over every area of our lives. We are all at varying levels in our walk with God and He is patient and kind (moreso than we are to ourselves) while we gain the freedom from our strongholds. God never gives up on us! This book is one I will be talking about with many of my friends and while the subject is very deep, and some chapters very dark, it is encouraging and full of hope.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but was not under any obligation to write a review. All opinions are strictly mine.

Think with me for a minute about that one person (or people) in your life who seem to be able to handle anything. No matter what they’re up against, they always have strength to get through … and then have time and energy to help you with your crises as well.

 

I worked in the foster care/adoption field over two decades ago. We would license foster homes of some exceptional parents. They seemed able to handle any issue children would bring – emotional, physical, mental, educational, or psychological. It didn’t matter what they were up against because they were strong enough to handle it.

 

However, we would still have to be careful to keep a good balance for these parents because even the best parents, even the best individuals, have a breaking point.

 

Everyone has that breaking point. It’s at a different level for different people, but everyone has one. The key is to be in tune with your emotional health so that you take a break before you get to that point.

Sometimes, though, life comes hard and fast and you don’t have the luxury of stepping away or dodging what’s being thrown. God knows … and that’s why He has never asked us to handle life by ourselves.

 

In John 16:33 (NIV), Jesus explains, ““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

 

God reassures us He doesn’t want us handling life alone. There are so many verses in the Bible telling us to cast our cares on Him, not to worry but instead to be strong and courageous. Not because God is trying to get us to be stronger in ourselves, but because He knows how hard life can be and wants to handle it for us. He wants us to leave our worries and cares with Him … trusting in His timing, His answer.

 

Maybe those people you think are strong, who can handle anything … maybe they know the answer. Maybe they are bringing all their worries and cares and laying them at His feet … and then waiting to see how He’s going to work out the problems, the “hard.”

 

Maybe …
