Sometime in the 1980s when I was pastoring the Jesus Saves Mission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I had a dream.
I heard angels singing,
“When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea- billows roll.
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul”
It is well. With my soul. It is well, it is well with my soul”
I have never heard such wonderful, harmonious singing like this on earth! It was very soothing & spiritually uplifting. I felt my spirit lifted up heavenward! It was still dark just before day break. Early in the morning I told my wife about this strange visitation.
Few hours later I spoke in the Morning Worship Service. About 15 minutes into the sermon the Church phone rang. I saw one Hong sister picked up the phone. Then she joined the Congregation and brought news to her 2 other sisters & also her brother Hong Fun Shun. They all broke in tears. Their mother has just gone home to be with the LORD.
Immediately, I stopped preaching and told them not to be sad as God has already prepared by sending Angels to take her home.
As the singing angels descended a little too early they visited our Mission Church in KL. That’s where I heard them singing & singing.
That was more than 30 years ago today. Yet to this day I still remember the singing vividly.
In heaven singing is the Christian’s chief employment. And we will sing for ever and ever. Amen & Amen!
