 Levi

The Lord took my son, Levi, on May 24, 2009.  I have only been able to continue in this life by the strength and grace of God.  I was not able to return to work after his passing, retiring after only 18 years with government. 

Within a year of Levi's passing, the Lord instructed me to create this website.  My response to the Lord was, "I don't know how to create a website, Lord."  God enables you to do what he tells you to do.  I searched the internet for help and the Lord brought me to Yola.com, which enabled me to create this site.  Creating it was one thing, getting it mapped to the internet was quite another story.  I found information from another site on how to create the HTML page - I did it, but could never do it again; I have tried.  This was divine intervention and a miracle. 

God gave me purpose through working on this website during the last couple of years - souls.  I don't suppose that anything else could have kept me going, but my desire to win souls during my remaining time in this world, the Lord knew, would somehow give me the strength to continue living this life, until He takes me home. 

My precious son, my only son, was the "apple of my eye."  I forged ahead, looking for headlines, investigating stories, creating articles for the website, tying them in with Bible prophecy, but my strength began to fail. 

On the evening of September 27, 2011, I caved.  I dropped to my knees and cried out to God.  I told Him, "Living here without Levi is unbearable."  I told the Lord that I will work to win souls, as long as He wants me to remain here, but I begged Him to let me see Levi, or take me home. 

I laid down, still in heavy grief.  As Paul described during a visit to heaven, hearing "unspeakable words" (2 Corinthians 12), he said he wasn't certain whether he was in the body, or out of the body - he could not tell.  In the same manner as this, whether in my body, or outside of my body, I can't say, but I visited Levi in heaven that night.

I appeared in heaven, seeing my sister-in-law first, who had passed on shortly after Levi.  I knew I was in heaven and as soon as I saw her, I said, "Jackie, do you know where Levi is?  Can you take me to him?"  She said, "Oh, yes," and she turned, so I thought I would be following her to a place where Levi was, but we disappeared and reappeared in a room.  I saw Levi sitting on a big chair and I knew in my spirit that he was waiting to see me.  When I appeared in the room, his mouth flew open with a gasp, he immediately rushed to me and we embraced.  Words weren't spoken, yet we said many things to each other.  The best way to describe it is "mental telepathy."  Levi comforted me and I reassured him.  When I saw him, I knew we would be together soon, forever in eternity. 

When we embraced, we touched cheek-to-cheek, and I noticed Levi had a new growing beard; I felt the prickling of whiskers across my cheek.  I immediately knew in my spirit that the Lord had given Levi the desire of his heart.  He had been on high doses of steroids as a child and sometimes as an adult because of Crohn's disease.  At the age of 24, when the Lord took him, he still didn't have a beard.  His friends had mustaches and beards, but Levi still had a baby's face.  Now, in heaven, he is growing a beard. 

When I opened my eyes in my room, I remembered every detail of my heavenly visit.  That visit was profound and very real and I know God allowed me to see Levi, because I begged Him to allow me to see Levi and just to hug him, but it was so much more than that.  Just when I was desperate and I cried out to God with such grief, He answered my prayer and gave me the desire of my heart. 

Some people reject God, in bitterness, when a loved one passes on.  If your loved one knew the Lord and trusted in Him, or was possibly a child, under the age of accountability, that loved one is in heaven with our Lord and Savior.  The Word of God says, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" Psalms 116:15.  The reason our death is precious to Him is because it is a glorious home coming, not a tragedy for the departed, or for the Lord.  The death of God's children is not anything like the death of someone who is spiritually lost.  I have seen the lost die - horrific is the only description.  I have seen numerous saints pass on - very different, very peaceful.  When Levi passed on to be with the Lord, we sang a few gospel hymns and prayed together, then he bowed his head and stopped breathing a few moments later.  It was as though he fell asleep; it was peaceful and he did not suffer.  Jesus said, "Whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:26.  Even if a child of God dies through sudden tragic circumstances, God takes the "sting of death" away from His people.  I truly believe this.  I fully believe that a child of God steps out of this body and enters heaven immediately; the Word of God bears this out.  The apostle Paul wrote, "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord" 2 Corinthians 5:8.  Jesus also said to the thief on the cross, who acknowledged that He was Lord, "Verily I say unto you, today you will be with me in paradise" Luke 23:43.  Jesus does not lie.  I know there have been martyrs who have suffered much, even our Lord and Savior suffered a cruel death on the cross for our sins, but still, God gave them the grace to endure for the much greater reward in heaven for all eternity.  If you have lost a loved one in this life, your only hope of seeing them and being with them forever in heaven, is to trust the Lord and cling to Him.

About a year after this experience, I wrote a poem about it, inspired of the Lord:

Levi

There is a young man who loves his mother, friends, family, yes, even foes.          My beloved son, Levi, full of God's love for everyone he knows.

As a young boy, he gave all his good toys.                                                              As a young man, he gave much that he had.

Levi suffered and he bravely bore it,                                                             Although, as his mother, I knew he abhorred it.

One difficult day, the Lord said, "Son, that's enough.  Come home with me, Levi, I know the road has been rough."

I thought to despair; I cried out to the Lord, "I can't bear it, I can't bear it, I must come home too."                                                                                                The Lord told me, "Just a while yet, I have work for you to do."

In all of His goodness and mercy, He allowed me to visit my precious son!  It is glorious, wonderful, what God has done!

Levi is happy, at peace and blessed.  He even has a new beard, the desire of his heart!

As I entered heaven, I saw Jackie first.  I said, "Jackie, where's Levi, can you take me to him?"                                                                                                         She said, "Oh, yes," and I thought our journey would begin.

As she turned, we both disappeared and appeared in a room.                              Levi sat resting in a chair, just waiting to see me.                                                    I knew in my spirit we would be together soon.

When he spied me, as I appeared in that heavenly place, his mouth flew open, he ran to me and we embraced.

Our faces touched cheek-to-cheek and I felt the slight prick of his new growing beard.                                                                                                                     I knew immediately it was the desire of Levi's heart, and God heard!

We embraced for a moment, though volumes were said.                                  Words need not be spoken in glory, it's all in your head.

He comforted me and I reassured him, "It won't be long, we'll be together again."

Forever, eternally, under God's wings of bliss, we both knew it won't be long, we will greet each other soon, for eternity, with a heavenly kiss.
