“It felt like a hundred volts hit me in the head and traveled down to my shoulders,” the author explains in his book. “The pain that followed felt like twenty men were punching me with their fists.” After Pastor Kelley's book was released he was interviewed on Pastor Perry Stone's television program, Manna-Fest.
Kelley was unaware that he was having a brain aneurysm, which according to the bishop, marks the last two hours to two weeks of your life. He was then rushed to the emergency room, but passed away in his hospital bed.
Heaven’s Golden Vessel then tells how Kelley remembers rising and looking at his dead body and traveling to Heaven. While in Heaven, Kelley speaks to his loved ones, including a visit with his murdered son, as well as a conversation with God himself. During this talk, the preacher receives a message to give to this generation, the reason he could not stay in the other realm.
“I cried, laughed and repented by the end of the book,” one reader commented, “I look forward to seeing my loved ones again with greater anticipation after reading this book. Bishop Earthquake, on behalf of this generation, thank you for bringing this word from Heaven."
Kelley was born one of eleven children in Stamford, Conn., and was the son of a Haitian voodoo practitioner. As a child, he learned more than 1,000 witchcraft techniques, and began to have drug problems starting at the age of four. This led him into a life of drug dealing and abuse.
Following a drug overdose, he gave his life to the Lord during a revival in Milwaukee in 1971.
At the age of 14, he was recruited by a boxing manager who knew his reputation as being a “bad kid,” and encouraged him to step into the ring. Kelley had approximately 20 professional fights between 1986 and 2001.
During his boxing career, he began a substance abuse ministry called the B.R.I.D.G.E. in Carson, CA, which later moved to the West Adams Foursquare Church. In 1991, Kelley founded The Bridge of Hope Church, which in 2005, became known as Bridge of Deliverance.
This is from "It's Supernatural" by Sid Roth. Earthquake Kelley died in the hospital due to brain hemorrhage. He saw his son who died prior to this event.
