Are there any biblical evidences of near death experiences or are these just hallucinations or "tricks from the devil"?

Are there characters in the Bible that experienced near death experiences ?

A sense/awareness of being dead.[4]

A sense of peace, well-being and painlessness. Positive emotions. A sense of removal from the world.[4]

An out-of-body experience. A perception of one's body from an outside position, sometimes observing medical professionals performing resuscitation efforts.[4][16]

A "tunnel experience" or entering a darkness. A sense of moving up, or through, a passageway or staircase.[4][16]

A rapid movement toward and/or sudden immersion in a powerful light (or "Being of Light") which communicates with the person.[17]

An intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance.[18]

Encountering "Beings of Light", "Beings dressed in white", or similar. Also, the possibility of being reunited with deceased loved ones.[4][16]

Receiving a life review, commonly referred to as "seeing one's life flash before one's eyes".[4]

Approaching a border or a decision by oneself or others to return to one's body, often accompanied by a reluctance to return.[4][16]

Suddenly finding oneself back inside one's body.[19]

Connection to the cultural beliefs held by the individual, which seem to dictate some of the phenomena experienced in the NDE and particularly the later interpretation thereof.[14][page needed]

    Some people pretend that in the instances of the dead coming back to life, they really weren't dead in the first place.

    No, the Bible doesn't describe near-death experiences as far as I know.

    NDE stands for Near Death Experience and thereby lies the clue! No death just fantasy!

    Research has been done in a number of hospitals in a number of countries with the same results.

    Numbers, pictures of codes were placed on top of high points in the wards. In some hospitals patients were told in others they were not.

    In the hospitals where people were told of the test there were no claims! Not even one!

    In the other hospitals there were claims but no one could describe the numbers, pictures etc.

    Then even more interesting it was found that all the claimants had recorded their religion as Christian and many making the claims had not come anywhere near death!

    Psychiatrists and psychologists are now examining the links between these false fantasy claims and a single religion!

    There is actually no "evidence" in the bible.

    The phrase "Biblical evidence" is an oxymoron.
