“Where was Jesus?”
Many years ago when my grandmother was on the brink of death in the hospital. We were all sitting around her and she began mumbling about seeing Heaven and her own mother and family on the Other Side. Someone asked her if she saw a certain family member and she didn’t answer.
Then, I asked if she saw Jesus. (I was a strong believer and really wanted to know if she saw Him). Everybody in the room whipped their heads around real fast and glared at me like I had just asked an offensive question. My grandmother looked around confused like she couldn’t find him.
I never knew what to make of that experience, but it started me questioning…where was Jesus?
Why wasn’t He there and why did she look so confused when I asked?
It was weird.
First of all, I want to say that your story illustrates something that the souls say all the time – no one makes the transition alone. Even souls who have told me they were either asleep, or in a comatose state when they crossed over, that they were aware of loved ones who had gone before, joyfully waiting for them, and preparing them for their journey back home.
Can you imagine being brought up to believe that Jesus is going to judge you for your sins, may condemn you to “hell” for them, and he’s the first one you see when you cross over?
That’s why those we love, and who loved us, are there to greet us, whether it’s during a “death-bed vision,” or after we cross over.
Children, especially young ones, who have no idea who their relatives are, are greeted by bunny rabbits, kittens, puppies, and other small animals according to the souls. After they become comfortable with these creatures and their unconditional love, they are then led to relatives such as grandparents, who welcome them back home.
Once the newly arrived soul adjusts to its new surroundings, and existence, the “Christ” appears to the soul and may be seen as “Jesus,” or “Buddha,” or Muhammad,” etc., depending upon the beliefs that the person had when they were alive.
Whomever the souls see, their experience is one of being unconditionally loved, and accepted for who they are, and not as being judged.
So where was Jesus? Waiting patiently, and lovingly, to welcome your grandmother back home, with a Heart of Love, Eyes that understand and accept, and Arms to hug her, saying, “I love you. I missed you. I’m so happy you’re back home. Now, share with me what you learned.”
Thus begins the “life review.”

Now I’m not one to read books that mediums put out because frankly, I think most of them are fake. But when my cousin said she had purchased the book and read it, I decided that I should take a look at it and see what it was all about. My curiosity got to the best of me. Let’s just say the book opened my eyes. It made me a believer in the afterlife again and in Anthony as a genuine medium. Melissa Pepples
