In a beautiful tribute sermon by Tony Evans for his late wife, Lois Evans, the Christian celebrity and Pastor talks about how the Lord gave her a “glimpse of Heaven” before she died.
On December 30, 2019, Tony Evans' wife of 49 years, Lois Evans, found healing in Heaven at the age of 70. Lois had been battling biliary cancer, a rare condition in the U.S.
In the final days, the Tony Evans family spent much of their time gathered around Lois. And during that time, Tony, who serves as the senior pastor at the Oak Cliff Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas, says his wife saw "something outside earth's realm."
Prayers For Lois Evans Health
Lois Evans was a devout follower of Christ. And in the sermon given by Tony Evans in her honor, Tony doesn’t seem all that surprised that Lois would hear from her Heavenly Father as her earthly time drew to a close.
“One of the things that I’ve observed in life and in scripture is that when people walk with God and He doesn’t take them suddenly, He will give them a glimpse of heaven while they’re still transitioning from earth," he said. "He will let them know, not only that it’s time, but it’s okay.”
Despite battling this awful disease, Lois did have some triumphs. Doctors even said they were surprised by how well she was doing. And Tony credits that to the massive amounts of prayers the Tony Evans family received.
“You were praying for us,” he said. “And we felt the prayers extending time.”
But eventually, it came time for Lois Evans to go home and be with the Lord.
Listen To Tony Evans Talk About Late Wife’s Glimpses Of Heaven
Before her death, Lois Evans spoke to her family about how she could see her late mother.
“For example,” Tony Evans recalled in his sermon, “she said to some who were gathered in the room, ‘Do you see my mother? Do you see her? She’s right over there by the fireplace. Do you see her? Why can’t you see her?'”
Then later, Lois started seeing her late father.
“On another occasion, she said, ‘My father. There’s my father.’ And there was no one in the room physically,” Tony explained. “She was seeing something as the time of her departure got closer.”
In the tribute sermon by Tony Evans, the well-renowned Pastor says Lois had even said, "Two days, two days, take me up."
Two and a half days later, Tony says she was gone. And her family knows that God was preparing them, and Lois, for this.
"She heard something, she saw something, as the time of her departure got nearer. Like Stephen in Acts chapter 7 who, when he was being stoned to death, he says he saw heaven opened and Jesus standing on the right hand of the Father giving him a standing ovation.”
Tony goes on to encourage all of us, saying, “When the time of your departure comes, you want to be close enough to God that you can hear things that other folk can’t hear and see things that other folk can’t hear.”
