Testimony of Grandfather’s Last Words
Here is a testimony of Grandfather’s last words that a friend emailed me. Amazing. Praise God –
I have to share a quick story with you. A very close friend just called me to tell me that his wife’s grandfather died. Here’s what he told me:
Her Aunt called the house and said that grandpa was about to pass away, and that if she wanted to say goodbye, it was time. They packed up their 3 kids, and headed into Traverse City (30 min).
They caught every single light green going through town, then they found a parking spot right near the front doors of the hospital. When they hit the elevator button, the doors opened with two seconds. They made it all the way to the seventh floor without having the elevator stop. They walked into the room. (This all happens within a minute): She held her grandfathers hand and said her goodbyes. The family preacher was holding his other hand.
Now, the man suffered a stroke sixteen years ago and has been unable to speak, he only mumbles things that are hardly audible, and rarely at that. He pulls the preacher down to him, says in a perfectly clear voice: “I know the Lord.”, kisses him on the cheek, and died.
My friend–who is much like I was, always answering religion with science–believes that this all happened the way it did so that he could see it and understand that there is a God.
Like you say, Joe: What is coincidence.
1 a : to occupy the same place in space or time b : to occupy exactly corresponding or equivalent positions on a scale or in a series
2 : to correspond in nature, character, or function
3 : to be in accord or agreement
It’s an alignment of the Spiritual realm with the physical. Thank you friend for the testimony. May the Lord be magnified.
Praise God! I love it when God does stuff like that! That is so cool!
Here I go again, Joseph! It reminds me of my grandad (several years before he died). He had attempted suicide in the early 80’s and he was left with brain damage. He lived another 15 or 16 years after that and could barely speak, only saying “mama” (he used this term for my grandmother) when he wanted something. That’s all he ever said after his attempt on his life until the day he died. Except for one day when my mother and I were over at grandma & grandad’s house for some family gathering and grandad grew tired and someone helped him go to the bedroom to lay down. Before mom and I left that day, we went back to the bedroom to give him a kiss and tell him we’d see him later. After I did this and was starting to walk away, he said in a very clear voice “I love you”. Makes me tear up just now. But after that all he ever said was “mama”. I don’t know if my grandad knew the Lord or not. I wasn’t saved at that time. But I pray that that was the power of God allowing grandad to speak those words to me that day. I pray that I will see him in heaven when it’s my time to go.
God is good and faithful and just.
Hey, g’monin’ sister. The thing that dawned on me from both of these testimonies is that the condition of the physical body can appear to be truth. But, when the soul of a man has the power of God with him, and he decides to speak from the heart/soul, there is no stopping it. Love… an absolute truth that conquers all.
Thanks for sharing. Please, always feel free to share. God’s testimonies should not be bottled up. If we’re going to boast, let us boast in the Lord and what He has done. They are very edifying and are builders of our faith. They are memorials to be used in times of troubles. They are fuel to our souls. :)
