Sunday Bun – Grant Jeffrey – To be absent from the body…
Posted by lamarzulli on May 13, 2012
Saturday, May 12, 2012 9:32 AM CST – It is with much sadness that I am reporting from Kaye Jeffrey. She said “Grant left this world of sin and sickness at 11:09 PM last night. What a powerful peace in his room. We stayed right there with him.” Kaye would like to thank everyone who has prayed so diligently and faithfully for Grant for this past seven days. He is now home with his savior, Jesus Christ. Please share. Kaye is praising Jesus Christ now for the mercies and grace He provides – - Via Jeffrey Harbuck
I want you to know that I JUST got off the phone with Doris, Grant’s sister-in-law. She was the one who answered when I called Grant’s home.
She did tell me that it was true, Grant did go home to be with the Lord last night at 11:09, May 11, 2012.
Grant was a long time friend of Prophezine and was also pivotal in my own personal life. It was his book “Prince of Darkness” that really help cement my love for Bible Prophecy. Over the years we communicated in email and via phone, but never had the chance to meet.
I spoke to him on the phone a month or so ago and told him that we would be speaking up in Branson MO together and we were looking forward to finally meeting face to face.
But God had other plans.
Grant is now working at the “home office” and is loving life with the Lord.
I look forward to finally meeting him one day and know that because of Grant, many have come to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In His Service,
Executive Director Prophezine
2CR 5;8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Death is never convenient. It stuns and shocks us when it happens no matter how “prepared” we are for it. It is never timely, and it’s finality severs all relationship with those who are left here. As Christians our hope and comfort can be found in the verse above and I believe that these words are not some flowery, vain promise, but are in fact super reality. Grant is the presence of the Lord. He is in glory. He is without his sin nature and is knowing as he is known. Death where is thy sting?
When Jesus rose from dead and left the tomb empty, he conquered death. His resurrection is the template, the hope, that we too who believe in Him, will follow suit when the last trumpet sounds and the dead in Messiah rise to meet the Lord in the air, and then those of us who are still alive will follow, to be with Him forever. Let’s pray for Grant’s family today and the rest of the week. L.A.
