  • Do Angels escort us to heaven if we die?

    I work as a nurse in ICU, and I often wonder when a believer dies does their spirt get escorted to heaven by angels or does the spirit automatically acsend to our lord in heaven? Sometimes when a person passes I get a very happy feeling and I am wondering if I could be in the glorious presence of our lord's angels. I get a sudden feeling of joy and I think, "Why am I so happy? This person just passed away". I don't see or hear anything unusual, just good feelings. This only happens about 25% of the deaths that I witness, and the other 75% I feel sadness and nothing. My friend, who is also saved and a hospice nurse, says she has the same experiences of feelings when someone dies. If it is possible to have that much joy around the presence of angels, I cannot even imagine the rapture of joy I will feel being in the presence of our Lord God in heaven. It will be wonderful.

    Can anyone point out scriptures which refer to angels, death, and aceent to heaven? Thank you very much and God Bless You All!

      Luke 16:19-22
      There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom:

      The journey to heaven will not be dark, fearful, or lonesome. God will dispatch His angels at just the right time, and they'll meet us just within the veil and carry us to the heights of His glory.

      When the godless man died in Luke 16, Jesus simply said he was buried; and in hell, he lifted up his eyes, being in torment. But when this unloved beggar who lived with the dogs in the slums of Palestine died, the angels were honored to convey him to heaven. He was regarded poorly in this life, but that didn't disqualify him from having an angelic escort through eternity's doorway.

      There are other hints about this in Scripture. In Jude 9, Moses' body was the special concern of the archangel Michael in his dispute with Satan. When Jesus comes again, according to 1 Thessalonians 4, the angels will be there to attend to those making their transports to heaven. They are heaven's ushers.

      Why would angels provide this service at the time of our deaths? Well, the angels are commissioned by God to care for His children. Though we don't often see them, our lives are surrounded by angels; and they have more to do with our daily progress and protection than we realize. "Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?" (Hebrews 1:14).

        Thank You Buzzardhut!

        I really appreciate those scriptures! So those feelings I have are not imagined!!! What an honor to know that I may have been in the presence of the Lord's angels. Those feelings of joy I get when someone dies can stay with me for hours.

        P.S. I witness to people ALL the time in ICU. I am one of the lucky ones that has a job where I have to make sure a patients religious needs are met while in the hospital. We always have to ask if the need to see a paster, rabbi, etc. and I always use that opportunity to tell the patient that I am a born again Christian. I have only had one person tell me they were not interested. All others listened! It is amazing when a person is on the brink of death, they do wonder where they are going when they die. Only once did someone accept Christ because of my witness, and he was an old man that died a few hours later after we prayed the Lord's Prayer. It was one of the most moving experiences of my life. After my shift was over, I cried the entire way home from work. Thanks again for the scriptures and have a good Sunday!

                That is great, and I'll relate a story to you, so just take it for what it is...

                My grandfather passed away back in the late 80's... just suddenly keeled over one day and bang was gone. But what I thought was wonderful is that when this happened my grandmother was with him. She told me this... paraphrasing now.

                He was just sitting there eating some peanuts and watching TV, when he just started grinning from ear to ear and staring up at the ceiling towards one of the corners of the living room. I asked him what he's smiling about and he said, "Don't you see those angels up there?" I said, "Angels?" And not 30 seconds later he fell out of his chair and passed away.

                I wasn't there when this happened, I was away at College, but when she told me this I was like, WOW!!
                Romans 8:28 <--- Favorite Verse, that brought me a lot of peace over the years.

                  This is on the Rapture Ready main site, in case anyone's interested.

                  http://www.raptureready.com/resource/shaw/shaw.html

                  It's 236 testimonies of individuals in their dying hours. Of course we can't know anyone's eternal position except our own, but from the testimonies it seems that the true believers don't seem to worry at all about dying (some even sing hymns ) whereas the unbelievers are troubled and tormented. I get choked up when I read the testimonies of the dying believers because while it's sad that they're leaving behind friends and family, it's happy that they're joyously entering into the presence of Jesus.

                      years ago when my dad had open heart surgery they told us he pretty much had 0% chance of surviving. He made it through surgery and into ICU. As mom and I went into see him right after he'd been brought up from recovery we walked past several beds with patients and I had this feeling of hopelessness. But as soon as we got to daddy's bed I had this overwhelming sense of comfort and peace. It turns out that of all the patients in ICU that day daddy was the only one who survived. He lived a very active life for many years after his surgery.

                          how wonderful!! I am going to go read that thread now.
                          When my mom died, I do wonder how awesome it was to be escorted to Jesus feet, and wonder if she ran to him sobbing or bowed at his feet I'm sure both!
                          I can't wait to watch a rerun of it when I get home.

                            The day my mom died, she had been in and out of consciousness most of the day on her bed. Friends and family came and stayed with her..visited when she was awake, etc.

                            When it was almost at the end...we were around her bedside, holding her..holding each other. We noticed mom kept looking up into the corner of the room. She couldn't speak, but her eyes told such a story...its as if she saw something (angels?) coming to get her and take her Home!
