Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


I just got through talking with Ron Carte, formerly a banker in Edmond, Oklahoma overseeing four banks. A most engaging person, Ron wants the world to know what happened to him when he died … and came back.

Ron had just left for the office when he got to 2nd and Coltrane Streets, his heart stopped. He passed out but the car kept rolling and crashed into a tree. Becoming barely conscious, Ron smelled gas and feared the engine would explode. He fumbled for his cell phone and got a 911 call to emergency.

The paramedics knew they had to get him immediately to the heart hospital. In addition, to the severe heart problem, his ribs had been broken in the wreck. In severe pain, Ron was rushed through the emergency entrance and a pacemaker was diagnosed. The doctors didn’t hesitate to begin the procedure.

Ron’s wife had arrived by this time and had once received a pacemaker herself. Knowing the amount of time should take, she began to worry as three hours passed. Finally, the medical team came and told her they were sorry, but Ron had died on the table.

But here’s the rest of the story—

When Ron opened his eyes, he had no idea where he was but saw a large oak tree in front of him. The leaves drifted down on the old garden around the tree. A cobblestone path wound down to a what looked like an older man with long hair standing by a gate.

“Ronnie, come here,” the man called out.

When Ron reached the gate, the man reached over and put his hands on Ron’s head. The pain of broken ribs vanished.

Amazed, Ron asked, “Am I in heaven?”

“Yes,” Jesus said.


“But you can’t stay Ron. You’ve got business to take care of back there. You know how I’ve spoken to you in the past through the scripture? I want you to share that knowledge with your children and your grandchildren. I want people to know I’m real. I’m going to send you back to share the message. Tell people heaven is real. Let them know I was born to Mary, that I walked on the earth just like you do. “

“But I want to stay,” Ron protested.

“It’s not your time,” Jesus said. “Everyone has a purpose and yours isn’t completed. You must go back.”


As soon as Ron returned from the hospital, he gathered his family around him, and shared his experience as he knew Jesus had instructed him to do. His grandson Grant was a seminary student, studying to become a priest. When Ron contacted him through the internet, he saw on his wall was a picture that had come from a nun who had a similar near-death experience. She asked three artists to help her portray the Jesus Christ she met in heaven. The face was exactly what Ron saw in his encounter.

Ron’s story is an encouragement to everyone who hears about his journey beyond death. He came back so you’d know, too.

Remember to expect the unexpected.

  1. I was truly inspired by Ron’s story. I believe so many others have seen the face of Jesus that, in spite of the fact, photography did not exist, we know what our Lord looked like. The countless people have heard his message as recounted by the Apostles! HE IS SPIRIT WITH US!
