My grandmother was born in the 1930’s, the eldest of three Chinese daughters. She had a very hard and challenging life from the age of twelve when her mother passed away. During their childhood, all three sisters were given Christian names. In 2005, she was admitted to Groote Schuur Hospital where doctors diagnosed her as having angina. She was sent home without much hope.
During this period, she read “Heaven Is So Real” – the Lord’s Personal Words given to Choo Nam Thomas which brought about her conversion. “So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My Mouth: it shall not return to Me void without producing any effect, useless, but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” [Isaiah 55:11]
So true, so true, that she was continually cleansed by the Lord’s Words. “So that He might sanctify her having cleansed her by the washing of Water with the Word” [Ephesians 5:26]
During this season of Grace, she was given a unique Gift of Love for the Father. While asleep and snoring, her spirit would praise the Lord with Psalm 21. At times, her spirit worshiped Him with Psalm 103 or Psalm 91. Constantly, after praising Him, her spirit would utter “Jesus, I Love You…” This continued throughout the night without her being aware of it, until one night, mom asked her about it.
During mid-July 2013, she was rushed to the local GP who declared that she had suffered cardiac failure. She was virtually gone as she struggled to breathe, but suddenly my grandmother heard herself saying, “The Power of the Blood of Jesus…” As she opened her eyes, unable to move, the doctor advised us to rush her immediately to Groote Schuur Hospital.
Doctors diagnosed her as having suffered acute cardiac failure. She became wheelchair-bound. Night after night, for four months, her deepest longing was to go to her Heavenly Home to be with the Lord. She would continually ask Father until her spirit responded in her sleep, “Bye now, bye; I am going home now!”
During the month of November, she suffered another two cardiac failures and was rushed off to Mitchell’s Plain New Hospital. Mumsie, as she was affectionately known, also suffered painful ulcers on her left leg due to the seeping of water from the tissues. Yet in her most agonizing painful moments of suffering, she continued telling Father how much she Loved Him. She would praise the Lord Jesus with Psalms expressing deeper Love for Him.
This amazing grandmother opened her eyes on the morning of the 21st November 2013 when she heard mom’s voice. Mumsie had not responded previously to the doctors at the hospital until my mother had rushed to her bedside.
“Father wants to meet you,” mom whispered, as her mother opened her twinkling eyes. “Jesus is coming to take you Home today.” Her mother responded, “Lord Jesus, I am Rapture Ready! Come and take me now to my Heavenly Home. Lord, I also forgive everyone who has ever hurt me. I am Ready.”
Mumsie shone with Holy Laughter while a Divine Joy flooded her. After mom spent a couple of hours at her bedside, she requested some ice cream. “I promise I will wait until you come back with my ice cream,” she said.
While she was away, mom received an emergency call – “You have to come immediately.” Doctors took us aside; “Your mother’s last words were, “I am leaving now, but not to my earthly home. I am going now to my Heavenly Home,” she whispered. Mumsie gently closed her eyes and slipped quietly into Father’s embrace.
Earlier that year, during the last week of the month of January 2013, a Spirit vision loomed before me. In it the Life Scroll of my grandmother appeared suspended. My spirit knew that it contained her entire life. While observing this scene, a portion of the scroll opened automatically. Through the Lord’s Grace I was allowed to be her witness to the last two words ending her life on earth. Embossed lettering appeared:
The following day, mom went to make the Spirit vision known to her. Her mother replied, “Thank You Jesus, You have heard my earnest prayed to be Rapture Ready.”
During this period, on two different occasions, she had been travelling towards a Brilliant Light sparkling at the end of a Tunnel. On another occasion, she was taken to Heaven and experienced a Peace and Serenity not known on earth. The Presence of the Lord hovered over her.
A week before she was admitted to hospital, a Spirit dream was given to a sister of Christ End-Time Ministries – Mumsie upon a white cloud high in the sky arrayed in a Pure White Garment!
Her request and deepest longing forever fulfilled.
“For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay.” [Hebrews 10: 37]
