    This video is speaking on Paul and his writings to the Philippians ; mention Paul was stoned, no he didn't get high, to death and brought back to life but this could be wrong. He was thrown into prison though. Either way here are the scriptures used.

    Philippians 4:
    11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

    12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

    13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    2 Thess 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

    Isa 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

    1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

    2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    Psalm 34:4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

    Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

    Isaiah 12:2 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    Paul went into the third heaven. Possibly he died in doing that.
    “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.” 2 Corinthians 12:2–5 (KJV 1900)

    Paul died at least once per day:

    I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. (1 Cor 15:21)

    And sometimes more frequently:

    As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. (Rom 8:36, Ps 44:11)

    He was certainly left for dead, but miraculously arose and walked away. Like the eveready bunny,
    he kept going and going....

    Acts 14:
    19 Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes,
    they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.
    20 However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city.
    And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

    We could say Paul reached the 3rd heaven spiritually, that third level of Noah's ark, etc...

    but......Hebrews 9:27

    Paul said he could not tell if he was in his body or not.

    John was in the Spirit of the Lord when he seen his revelations....Paul was possibly the same.
