"Blessed are the dead who die
in the Lord from now on."
"Yes," says the Spirit, "they will
rest from their labor, for their deeds
will follow them."
Six years ago today on January 1, 2000, Thomas Neil Schulz died at 5:25 p.m. He saw wondrous things that day and he told me as much as he was allowed.
Tom told me that morning when he woke up that he was living in two realities. Later in the day he asked me if he was special. I asked why. He said, "that I should have all this!" I told him, "Yes, you are very special. You are a child of God, saved by grace." He looked up at the ceiling in two directions, as if to check out to see if what I said was correct, nodded and smiled at me and said, "Yes." Those were his last words.
Missionaries do what they do in the world for this very reason: that as many as possible may live and die in the Lord. They are blessed!
