Seeking Him Podcast

Escorted into God's Presence

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you remember the story of the rich man and Lazarus? Jesus said that when this beggar died, he was “carried [or escorted] by the angels" into the presence of God. I think that this gives us a glimpse into what happens at the moment of our death. God sends His angels to escort His children from this life into the next.

Billy Graham wrote this about the death of his grandmother. “When she died, the room seemed to fill with a heavenly light. She sat up in bed and almost laughingly said, ‘I see Jesus. He has His arms outstretched toward me, and I see the angels.’” Then Dr. Graham said, “She slumped over—absent from the body, present with the Lord.”

As believers in Christ, we don’t have to be afraid. We know that when the moment comes for us to pass into the next life, He’ll send His angels to escort us right into His presence.
