THE EVIDENCE FROM ABOVE,
which was about this book
Here I place the description of one very important case from my life which has occurred during time a writing of the given book «40 days in Paradise». There was in summer of 1999, in one of warm days of August. Weather was very clear and windless, in the sky - a uniform cloudlet. It was about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Below, on the ground floor, the wife cooked fig jam. I was on the second floor, in the room, and sitting at a coffee table at opened window, wrote the book «40 days in Paradise». The manuscript was already ready, and I needed to add only one last line. It is a little having thought, I began to finish this line in the manuscript. Suddenly I have felt, that to a window at which I was, outside Someone quickly began to come nearer and has stopped at window level. I have hasty risen and have looked out of the window, but this Someone was invisible, and my room presence has suddenly filled with Someone important, great and holy. Having understood, at last, that this is The Lord, I in disarray have stopped, reflecting on the purpose of so important visit. By any «the sixth feeling» (that is in spirit) I have felt, that the attention of the Lord has been directed on the book laying on a table «40 days in Paradise» which I hardly have had time to finish, it has been opened on last page. Further the account went for seconds: less than for a minute he has seen whole book, not thumbing through it! There and then I have learnt also a response of the Lord about this book: He has told it not by words, and has transferred mentally: « Oh well, it is quite good ». After that the Lord began slowly to keep away from a window (the window of 2nd floor was up to level of 3 metres from the earth). Remaining at the given height, the Lord left towards the lake which coast is in 20 metres from a window. When he passed over the lake middle, the thunderclap was suddenly hearded, but is not high in the sky, but over that place where he was. As I have already told, in the sky there was no cloudlet, the sun shone, as before. I place in the given book this story, as the evidence of the Lord.
The given book does not emanate from any church or of a religious current, though the author, certainly, not against their joining to a position of the author on questions stated in it (and even their participations in a common cause, Dan.11:34). Among addressees of this book there can be both those and others (if only they are not illegal). At its writing the author was guided only by doctrines of the Bible and that it is accepted to name good conscience before God, Acts, 23:1. The author does not wish to limit a circle of readers, and expects understanding of the questions mentioned in it from all who wishes to know about the God, about everlasting life and, of course, about Paradise, the way to which (as the author hopes) will help to find and the given book «40 days in Paradise».
