I was standing before Jesus.

I had an incredible experience on November 8th, 2015. I was sleeping lightly, somewhere between awareness and sleep. Suddenly, I was moving upward through the dark sky and catapulted into heaven.

Immediately, I was standing before Jesus. He was so beautiful. I don’t know any other way to describe Him. There was nothing hidden in Him. He is pure and Holy. He is loving and approachable, warmness radiated from Him.

I asked Him, “Where is Dad?” “Can I see Him?”

Jesus turned His head and nodded in a direction and I followed His gaze. In the distance was something like a white fire of light. It was a huge light, overtaking everything it shone on, moving and breathing. It was alive and it was God.

It was so bright I knew I could not keep my eyes open to see how to get to Him, so I asked Jesus “Will you take me to Him and place me at His feet?”

Immediately, I was at the feet of my Father. My arms were wrapped around His mighty ankles, my head laying on His feet, which appeared like a glass substance to me with that white fire of bright light coming from them. I couldn’t bear to look any longer so I closed my eyes. His feet did not feel like glass though, more like substance, but unlike anything I have ever felt before.

I began to cry as I told God how much I loved Him. I told Him I missed Him so much and at that moment it felt as though my heart was torn in two. I asked Him to help me not to sin against Him. I held onto His ankles, never wanting to let go, never wanting to leave His presence. Everything clean and beautiful was within Him and I wanted to bask in that forever.

Then I felt and saw a bright white light; like a flash of lightning, but thicker and wider than lightning, covering the inside of my head.

Suddenly, I was back standing in front of Jesus. I asked Him, “Do I have to go back?”

He said, “It is your choice.”

I told Him, “I don’t want to be wasted space on the earth.”

He looked at me and asked “Would you go back for one?”

I said,“You mean like leaving the ninety-nine to go in search of the one?”

He said, “Yes, would going back for just one be enough?”

I knew what He was asking me. If I only brought one person safely into the Household of God; would that be enough for me not to feel like it was a waste. I also knew He was reminding me of the scripture of the Shepherd who left the ninety-nine sheep to go find the one lost sheep. I knew then the answer was yes, it would be enough. Even if only for one, it would be enough for me to go back. It was not nor ever would be about me, it is about all, to bring a lost brother or sister back home to God our Father, to see that they are spared an eternity of suffering in hell and instead are gifted into a life eternal with God. I realized too, that whatever I suffered by coming back and living in this dark world, it would be worth it.

Jesus was still standing there. He knew I had made my decision. I asked Him if He could hold me; just for a moment. I stepped into His open arms and felt Him cradle me like a child. His love was so tender and so full, for all of us.

Then, in a snap I was back laying in my bed wide awake, my husband sleeping soundly beside me. There were tears on my face still running from my eyes and I knew everything I experienced was real.

I can’t explain how God takes one’s spirit into heaven or even moves a whole person from one place to the next, but He does.

I came away from this experience with a deeper understanding that in the eyes of God we are all related to each other; all brothers and sisters in the Kingdom of God and He is our Father. My “Family” just grew exponentially and so has yours if you can accept this.

It is my deepest hope that my life in God will affect more than one; however that said; I am here even for the one lost. Jesus gave His life for all humankind, He was asking if I would give my life for just one and my answer was yes, even for only one. I know He was testing my heart by asking me to set aside my overwhelming desire to be home with Him because of His overwhelming desire that all should be saved.

Such peace is upon me this morning, a feeling of graciousness and deep affection. If I could say it is settled in my heart and runs through my veins and seeps out through the pores of my skin, this is what I sense.

I have been humbled by the Master, in His tender way He has opened my heart yet again and laid it bare.

Dear Kasey,
An incredible post and a awesome encouragement to evangelise. I loved reading this and reminded me of Ian McCormack’s experience in heaven. Once RDD comes good this is one of our goals to finance meetings in Sydney with Ian.
Thank you . Thank you. A personal experience that should motivate and drive us all harder for kingdom purposes. Time is getting shorter.
God bless you

Kasey, what a wonderful privilege. I was most interested to hear that His feet were glassy. These verses came to mind as I read.
Revelation 4:3And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
Isaiah 40:22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth; its dwellers are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

On 3rd October 2018 I had a total hip replacement and was then transferred to coronary care for one week because of a racing heartbeat, which was treated. Many had covered in prayer. The Lord had given Jeremiah 30 v17′ I will bring you back to health and heal you of your wounds’, so I had gone for surgery in peace.For 10 days post -operatively I saw Jesus so closely. He was not as I have so often seen Him, in a white robe with a deep red sash. He was in a white robe and an over garment of blue, with gold filigree.I rarely read the Word at this time, or prayed the usual prayer lists , but prayed for the persecuted , pressured almost beyond endurance, children abducted and abused, and those about to die in disasters who did not know Him at all. And in all that time, He stayed close as my Friend, dealing with long term insecurities. I told Him I wanted to go home. He did not rebuke me for this. I was able to accept that He can use me in whatever physical state I am in, even if it is ONLY to pray, or help to bring in one more soul.
He is so precious.
Thank you, Kasey, for this. It has brought me to tears again.

What a beautiful experience Kasey, oh to just cling to the feet of the Father!
Many times in prayer I found myself clinging to His ankles weeping, oh one day one day soon.
Thank you for sharing with us, God Bless you

Yes Kasey–I read your blog that am. Thanks for the reply.
The Holy Spirit , over the recent yrs. has moved me from a gun toting
lady to a spiritual warrior—We wrestle not against flesh and blood.
I believe it was two yrs. ago I was at my computer sending in my right
to carry license info. , when I heard the voice of my Abba so loud in my
head “Stop, this is not for you.” We always have to ask, like you had mentioned ” What would our Jesus do ?
Was given a Word for our body two weeks ago ” My children stay close
to me and walk in My Awe ” –I will take you over the waves that are coming!
Can’t remember the last time I was privilege to receive a “word” like
that . They know that I always say there has to be a shaking -before a
outpouring ! Also in the natural we had real waves here in the Tx. hill
country–like never seen before !
Thank you Father for the many warnings you have given us —many
here on Z3 about the day of chaos .
Pray for protection of our children, many prophetic articles from the past
on this subject . To God be the Glory ” For such a Time as This “!
Love and Shalom to All at Z3
