By Francis Frangipane

Recently, I had a dream in which I found myself inside the mind of a dying man. The man had been in a coma or drug induced unconsciousness for some time; his family had been praying, but they did not know whether or not he had accepted Christ's sacrifice. All they were sure of is that, throughout his life, he had resisted their efforts to lead him to Christ.

In the dream, I became so acutely aware of the man's state of mind that his thoughts, feelings and struggles almost seemed my own. Although his eyes were nearly closed and his vision clouded, through a break in this visual fog he saw his loved ones at his bedside. I watched as he tried to reach toward his family, but outwardly his arm never lifted. Inwardly, I heard him speak their names, but no sound whispered through his lips. A loved one held his hand and asked, "If you hear me, squeeze." He heard and pressed his fingers tight against hers, but to the eyes of all his hand clearly remained limp. He was conscious, but perfectly incapable of responding. He could hear their prayers; he felt the wet warmth of their kisses on his face.

Unprepared for Eternity

The pride and isolation that had, throughout his life, stood as guards over his heart were gone. A physical catastrophe had overtaken him. Death approached and he knew he was unprepared for eternity. Submerged beneath his placid exterior, a war had raged for his soul and God had won. Subdued by the relentlessness of God's love, he was finally at peace. During his time in the hospital he had silently prayed and accepted Christ as his Savior. I was watching his last effort to tell them as life ebbed out of his body.

Suddenly, the alarms of hospital monitors filled the air and I now found myself in the room looking down at the lifeless body of a man who had just died. The room was buzzing with nurses, while his family huddled in a corner, grieving. The idea of their loved one dying without receiving Christ was more devastating than the reality of death itself. In my sleep, I stirred and, as I woke, I heard the Lord speak to my heart, "Tell them he is with Me."

God is Good

A couple days have passed since I had this dream. During this time, as I pray, I am increasingly aware that there are many of God's people who have been carrying a deep and troubling heartache about the passing of an unsaved loved one. Obviously, this dream does not apply to all, but there are some for whom this experience is divinely directed. I submit it to you in a general sense, because the Holy Spirit has assured me He will bear witness to your heart.

Yet, I have also felt an urgency to pass this dream to you. I am convinced that the Lord has an important work for you, yet the enemy has used the questions about this event to sow doubt into your soul, not only about your deceased loved one, but doubts also about God Himself and the power and gift of prayer. As a result, your confidence in looking to God has diminished, and this is at a time when it is vital for you to stand for other members of your family.

Finally, even with all the questions and mysteries of life, we must not let the unknown obscure the face of the known. God is good. I only know the nature of God by looking at one reality: the life of Christ. I know God loves me because He sent His Son to die for my sins. Indeed, Jesus said, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (Jn 14:8). When we look at Christ, we see God.

Sudden "Opportunities" Before Death

Some of us have lost loved ones in sudden tragedies, where they had apparently no time to repent and turn to God. Yet, let me remind you that many people who have had near death experiences, tell of seeing their "whole life flash before [their] eyes." Others who were in accidents tell of "time slowing down" and the movement of life almost stopping. I believe that, even in what seems like a "sudden" death, time itself accordioned out: it stretched and slowed until that person entered a different realm of time. There, they saw the highlights and shortcomings of their lives and again had an opportunity to accept Jesus Christ.

Beloved, in spite of what we do not know about the mysteries of life, this one thing remains eternally true: God is good. He does not desire that any man perish and He will fight to save us, even to the moment of one's death. Let us, therefore, cast our burdens upon the Lord, for He truly cares for us. And let us again run with endurance the race set before us, for He who has promised is faithful.

Lord Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins. Lord, there are many issues I do not know, but I do know that You are good. Those things I do not understand, I give to You, trusting You with myself and those I love.

"The Days of His Presence"
By Francis Frangipane
$10.00 Book
A great shaking is occurring in the church and unscriptural divisions are all crumbling like houses of clay in an earthquake; God is rumbling through Christianity! What remains will be our devotion to Christ.

The Days of His Presence is a trumpet call. It not only heralds the return of the Lord but the return of His glory to the church at the end of the age. Under-girded by both the Word of God and a vision the Lord gave Francis in 1971, this book will do two things: transform your view of the last days, and help prepare you to receive the fullness of Christ in the day of His glory!
