    COVID 19, act of God or brought about by a Chinese leader that thinks He's God!

    Do our loved ones who have passed away visit us?
  • Grace - in Reply on Luke 15:10
    Hello Mr Sebren

    The Lord is also the God of the dead: Revelation 20, Philippians 2: 10 & 11, and Romans 14:9 > "For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living". "Might be" is now is! Now that's cleared, I offer sympathy if someone you cared about recently passed away

    The following is my personal experience and my thoughts about what happened. Furthermore, I admit that I didn't want to answer your question because I knew it would draw out the haters. But I couldn't forget your question and now know that it's right to answer from a unique experience

    I hadn't seen a dear aunty of mine for a long time due to being abroad. She was an older sister of my mother and was actually more of a good mother to me. She was suffering for a long time, but no closely related relatives told me when there was time because they're narcissistic. I found out very late about it when I phoned relatives overseas, but she was asleep. It was just before she passed away. So it was the most distressing grief I've ever been overwhelmed by

    So, I cried to the Father God and told him how I missed her so much and never got the chance to say goodbye. Then when I was out walking on a sunny day, some time within 15 days of her passing, I suddenly sensed the presence of an angel who told me in the spirit that someone wants to speak to me! I'm glad I was given that bit of preparation, or else I would've closed up out of fear. A minute later, her spirit &soul appeared, asking me questions that she would've asked, but never got the chance before. I answered her questions while they walked with me. This lasted about 10 mins. Then 2 days later, they came back for a final brief visit, in my home, so she could see my lifestyle & for me to explain my circumstances to her

    So it's possible but rare& only if God allows it for a brief time window (up to 15 days, maybe 30, of the death of a saved soul, escorted by an angel). I didn't ask for that, but u may

    Our God is not a god of the dead,but of the living.
  • Luke 15 is about the prodigal son on Luke 15:10
    Luke 15 is only about the prodigal son,not a woman.
  • Frank Craig on Luke 15:10
    ithink think this clearly says that God rejoices over a repentant sinner while the angels look on wondering what this salvation is all about.
  • Jackie Cooke - in Reply on Luke 15:10
    As the woman called her friends to rejoice with her upon finding the lost piece of silver, so God calls his angels round when one sinner repenteth.
  • Barry Pierce on Luke 15:10
    Does the phrase "in the presence of the angels" refer to God Himself?
  • Mark garlow on Luke 15:10
    THANK YOU LORD. GOD is GREAT.
