    Do Angels come and get the saved at death ?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Psalms 72
    No. We don't need that body any more. We will be given a new body.
  • T - in Reply on Psalms 72
    While some will come to offer Biblical reference I will offer you a personal experience.

    I "died" after a horrific motorcycle accident while in the hospital. (Since I am alive now one could argue that I did not actually "die" and therefore it was a NDE but I will leave that debate alone.)

    When my soul left my body I was pulled straight to The Light. (First I went through what I can only describe as Space at a million miles a second.) I did not see or witness any angels or "beings" taking or guiding me. As I approached the light His voice stopped me. I was given an instruction and was allowed to respond. He then appeared(I was allowed to see Him but not His face) said five words and sent me back.

    Maybe this helped, maybe not. Since I did not "permanently die" maybe my experience differs from the specific nature of your question.

    That event helped me though. It saved my soul!

    If anyone sees this and has any doubts within themselves..Jesus Christ IS real and the love I felt in that "moment" will never be forgotten and is uncomprehendable. There is nothing on Earth that compares to the power and love within His presence.

    I would also like to add that this occured when I was the biggest sinner I have ever been in my life. If you(anyone reading) believe you aren't good enough for Jesus, you are and he loves you more than you can understand!

    I know you said goodbye once T, but this is what I wish we were doing more on this website, sharing how we became Christians and how we are blessed now. There are many angry with me because we can slam each other with Bible references bit the real proof is in our lives. So here online we cannot see each others eyes or smiles, we cannot see each other's mates or children or each other's brethren that they may meet with and so we are limited and easily mis- understand some one. I am very happy that the Lord saved your life and gave you a new life and that you have an experience as a place to go back to if somehow you are challenged in your Christian life for for the furtherance of the Gospel or for one's own sanctification which is still for the furtherance of the Gospel. I am not easily offended because like you I went from darkness to light at the cost of God sending his Son to die on the cross for me. God bless your life and experience as well as the many readers here.

    When u say u heard his voice, and he sent you back. Experiencing his love is what I long for. To understand this is more than a feeling,isn't it? The knowledge he shares in wisdom and goodness is not enough for our small minds! Like the disciples we are always looking for a sign.something more conclusive. The love He shares with us in his word, must take hold of our hearts so we can share it with one another. These things are difficult since we are sinners. I wish so much to behold him , like you did. If this was his revelation toward you ,you would be so blessed, and certainly you would be shouting his name above the mountain tops!

    Hello Fred

    His love is present at all times isn't it!? We(even Christians) have become blinded by the world and all of its cobwebs. His love allows the sun to rise, the wind to blow through the trees, the birds and the crickets to sing, the wheat to grow, the rain to fall and a wretch like me to be saved. Feel so blessed to have a Bible along with the ability to read and comprehend!

    Every breath is a gift.

    That old song we all know, Amazing Grace, gets me good now!

    I enjoy reading your comments Fred. Time well spent and served. You Sir are an example of His presence in our lives.

    God Bless You

    The kingdom is ever before us! I pray I could see Him as he is in this flesh! The same way the angels proclaim to the disciples, "the way you have seen Him leave, is the way you will see him return!" The glory that you speak is all around us in him! Stephen saw him! Even while he was dying! God be with you always!
  • Carleton - in Reply on Psalms 72
    I have beheld him too.

    God bless you for sharing that beautiful testimony!

    It is powerful... Don't ever stop sharing God's truth, mercy and love with others! Glory, honour and praise to God, and many thanks to you for sharing!

    I believe you. I saw Him too. I was reading an astrological map I had made, to a Methodist at that moment. It happened on Yom Kippur. I saw Jesus and then a vision of hell opened in my kitchen floor. It looked real.

    No one wants to go there. It's foul, terrifying.

    I think I know how Paul felt when he got up off the ground.
  • T - in Reply on Psalms 72
    With the extreme amount of joy, peace and love that I felt I can only imagine how horrific and tormenting the feeling of Hell would be.

    When He told me I had to go back I instantly felt the gravity of the Earth along with the pain and suffering within it. This immediate difference in feeling was such a downer. The torment and suffering of Earth, I'm sure, does not even come close to that of Hell. As you said, no one wants to go there. No escape.

    I know where I wish to be when my time comes! My life has been changed and I pray that others find the truth and life of and in Jesus Christ!

    God Bless Mishael I always enjoy reading your comments.
