Lillian Taylor's Encounter with Heaven
On July 14, 2014 my mother, Lillian Pearl Taylor, went to the hospital with an infection that took her home on July 21st. Mom had a very dear friend, Lesli, who treated her like her own mother. For two days she sat with her, prayed with her, visited with her and transcribed what she saw and heard. What follows are excerpts from Lesli's transcription and my memory of our eye witness account of my Mom's description of her experience in heaven. Many of these experiences occurred with her eyes wide open.
I became aware of Mom's encounter with heaven when I walked into the room and Mom was absolutely giddy. She was yelling "it is so beautiful. The colors are so beautiful. He is so beautiful! I am so beautiful." She described seeing Jesus, angels, a horse, my Dad and a house.
In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. NKJV
It is so beautiful, it is so gorgeous, the colors, oh the colors, I have to go back.
"Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. NKJV
So thankful, so grateful, so beautiful, light, beautiful light, thank you Lord.
While they watched, Jesus was changed. His face became bright like the son. And His clothes became white as light.
The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. NKJV
So much peace, so much light, joy and happiness.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
James we will be together forever. (Note: my father died in 1993)
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. NKJV
Blessings. I love you so much Lord.
I will have you Lord for always. He prays a lot. He loved you so much. Oh Lord, so beautiful, so beautiful, so beautiful, so pretty, a perfect day, a perfect day. I have never been better. I am so happy. It is so much more beautiful than I ever thought.
...by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing. But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. NKJV
He is so beautiful, He is so willing, He is so able, I am so happy, thank you Lord. Thank you Lord!
One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple.
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. NKJV
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. NKJV
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth — those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. NKJV
