Revelation of Sister Claire Andoun in Heaven

In my previous article, I wrote about The Home Going of Sister Claire Andoun Solomon, which took place on May 10, 2017. Since then a sister from Heaven Seekers Church in Ghana named Naomi Brako testified on video before the Church that the Lord revealed to her how sister Claire made it to heaven. Here is how it happened.

The Dream Given to Sister Naomi
On June 19, 2017, the Lord gave her a message from Psalm 24 and afterward he asked her to add Psalm 25 to it. So she read those two Psalms. That evening she went to the church service, and after church she told them she asked the Lord to give her a message again. So the Lord told her to read those two chapters again. After reading Psalm 25 she realized she was so sleepy she couldn't do anything. She heard a voice saying to put the Bible down and sleep, so she did so.

She does not know how long she had been sleeping when she suddenly appeared somewhere. She saw sister Claire lying on a sick bed, but at the same time sister Claire was also standing close to her. Sister Claire said, "Behold," and sister Naomi saw her appear on a screen. She said, "Have you seen? When I was on my sick bed about to die, the prayers of the saints that were praying for me and asking the Lord that if I had sinned that He should forgive me -- have you seen it?" And she made Naomi understand that even while she was lying on her bed, she was also pleading for forgiveness of sin, because the Lord made her understand that she had sinned. And on the screen, Noami saw some of the saints were praying for her, including her father and mother and other saints who were praying for her. She saw another group, too, whom she thought were saints that sister Claire used to fellowship with or pray with. She thought they were praying for her, but she saw that in their minds they were saying, "She's getting what she deserves."

Claire told her to "Look at the angels who are preparing and waiting on me to take me away." And Naomi saw that even while she and others were praying for her sins, the angels were waiting to take her away. And she realized that truly they took her along and they entered into the clouds. Naomi kept looking on and she saw that the heavens had opened. While looking at her, she said, "Wow! You have arrived." So Naomi decided to join her, but sister Claire said, "No. You cannot just enter like that."

And she saw that sister Claire, with whom she was chatting, was changing -- her skin and her nature, her body, and everything was changing. So Naomi was looking at her and telling her, "Wow, you look so elegant and so beautiful!" Naomi wanted to go along with her, but she said, "No, you haven't finished your work, so you can't just enter that place."

And while she was talking to her, Naomi realized heaven had come so close to her that she can't describe it. Sister Claire asked her, "Heaven has come so close to you. Do you understand why heaven has come so close to you?" And she told her, "Heaven has come so close to you. I'm going to explain it to you. Heaven has come so close, as a matter of fact, the Lord has brought heaven so close to men."

Claire made her understand that we used to think heaven was so far away from us, but now it's not like that. Heaven is so close to us, because the Lord is revealing mysteries to us. Some things we previously thought were not sins, the Lord has revealed them to us. We now have much knowledge about heaven and how to get there. And Claire made her understand there were so many things we thought were not sins, but the Lord has made us realize it, even some things that go on in matrimonial homes.

And sister Claire made her understand that she didn't go to heaven by her own merits. It was the grace of God that took her there. It wasn't by her own doing or her works. And she made her understand that the Lord isn't coming for just anyone who maybe calls upon His name, but rather someone who does the will of the Father and keeps His commandments.

Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." (Matt 7:21, NIV)
"In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome..." (1 John 5:3, NIV)
"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." (Rev 22:14, KJV)

Then she saw a number of people in a group there, and sister Claire said she should go tell them that she's not in hell. So while sister Naomi was going, she saw that sister Claire's father and mother were in the crowd, so she told them that she was not in hell. And sister Claire told her that the Lord even revealed to a pastor in the Heaven Seekers Church named Albert that she was not in hell, but he didn't believe it. But later on the Lord made him believe that she wasn't in hell.

Then she saw how beautiful sister Claire was looking, and her skin color, even her teeth, how shiny they were, and her nails. She was looking so glorious and so beautiful. And she saw that another sister was with her, who was the late sister of a deaconess in her church named Jane.

She saw that the dress that sister Claire was dressed in was so beautiful, so she asked, "How come you have this beautiful dress?" And she told her, "When I went to heaven the angels had already sown it there for me." And she showed her another dress that she would be wearing on the banquet day of the Lord, the day when He will have His marriage feast, and sister Naomi doesn't even have the words to describe how beautiful that dress was. As Naomi was looking at her crown, she saw that her crown was also so glorious!

Sister Claire told her that normally they (apparently sister Claire and the late sister of deaconess Jane) have been coming into the midst of Heaven Seekers Church in Ghana to worship with them, even though they do not see them. They are coming into their midst as angels to worship with them, so sister Claire said she should tell the church all about it. It is possible that sister Claire may have also meant that the saints in glory in general -- not just herself -- are normally coming into our midst to join us in worship. Sister Naomi seemed to indicate in her testimony that this is a "normal" occurrence that happens "sometimes" when we worship.

"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us..." (Heb 12:1, NIV)

Also sister Claire was speaking Chi with her, so she asked her, "While you were on earth, you didn't understand Chi, and you couldn't speak Chi, so how come now you are speaking my own language with me?" And she said, "Over there in heaven you are able to speak all manner of languages, so no matter the language you speak, I can communicate with you."

And Naomi noticed how nice and glorious her mansion in heaven was, so she asked her how she came to possess it. She replied, "It began when I surrendered my life to our Lord Jesus Christ, and then I went about evangelizing, using my life as an example, to win so many souls unto the Lord." And she made Naomi to understand that the Lord was so pleased with the fact that she was using her own life as an example to evangelize to others and to win so many souls to Him. That's how she got the mansion, but she entered into heaven, not by any merits, but it was just by the mercy and the grace of the Lord, because she sinned against Him. But when she went to the Lord for forgiveness, He had mercy upon her and forgave her of her sins. That's how she was able to enter into the kingdom.

So sister Naomi asked her, "Then what about us? Are we also going to have buildings?" Sister Claire replied, "Some of them are now at the foundation level, some have not yet been started, and some are at the extent that now they are breaking." May the Lord have mercy on us!

And as Naomi was looking at her building, sister Claire told her that it would take a year to move through all the various parts of the building. May the Lord have mercy on us and grant us a building as beautiful as that. Sister Naomi says, "Her building was so high and mighty! My beloved, my prayer to the Most High God is that may He have mercy on us, may He help us so that we'll also be able to work for Him well, so that our works will be able to build us such a mansion. And may He have mercy on us and also take us into His kingdom."

The Vision Given to Brother Albert
Afterward a pastor named Albert testified. This is the pastor whom sister Claire told sister Naomi about in the revelation, saying that the Lord had revealed to him that she was not in hell, but he didn't believe it. He said he remembers the morning that sister Claire passed away, on May 10, 2017. They were having pastor's prayers, and their lead pastor, who was present, informed them that she had passed away. While the others were still deliberating about her issue about her death, he was just sitting quietly, and the Lord revealed a lady to him. He saw that there was something black coming out of her nose. But suddenly her appearance changed and she looked so glorious, and the Lord told him, "This is sister Claire." The Lord made him understand that the former state he saw her in was the state she was in before she died.  But now the new, glorious state he was seeing her in was how the Lord has made her. But he didn't believe it. He was still doubting it within himself. And because of that, he did not even inform his lead pastor or wife. Neither did he tell deaconess Jane. He only informed one person.

It was only later that the lead pastor's wife heard it and she asked him, "Pastor, I heard you saw sister Claire in a vision, and you didn't even inform me." After he heard sister Naomi's testimony before the Church on June 24, 2017 he shared his testimony before the Church about the vision of sister Claire, so that it could be part of the video recording in support of sister Naomi's testimony. And he said, "Up until now I haven't even informed any other person until I said it here yesterday. I didn't inform deaconess Jane. This is to prove that what the Lord revealed unto deaconess Naomi and unto me is indeed the truth. So if someone tells you that he or she has seen sister Claire anywhere else, this is what the Lord revealed to me that she was indeed able to make it [into heaven]. Amen."

The Lord's Message for us in Psalms 24 and 25
I also want to discuss the two Psalms that sister Naomi received from the Lord in answer to prayer, because they contain a very important message for us, regarding sister Claire's eternal destination. Remember that He told sister Naomi to read Psalm 24, then He told her to read Psalm 25, and later when she prayed for another message, He told her to read the two chapters again. It was after she finished reading Psalm 25 that a great sleepiness came over her, and she heard the voice tell her to close the Bible and sleep. After she did so, it was during that sleep that she had the dream in which the Lord revealed to her that sister Claire made it to heaven. So please read these, and ask the Lord to speak to you.

As you read Psalm 24, listen to the Lord as He tells you who may ascend into the hill of the Lord and stand in His holy place. Listen to the Lord tell you who shall receive a blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is directly related to the revelation about sister Claire, because she ascended His hill, stood in His holy place, received a blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from God who saved her. She had clean hands and a pure heart, and that is what you and I must have, if we hope to make it to heaven.

Psalm 24
A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it. For He has founded it upon the seas And established it upon the rivers. Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? And who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully. He shall receive a blessing from the LORD And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face—even Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah. (Psa 24:1-10)

Now as you read Psalm 25, listen to the Lord as He shows you how sister Claire lifted up her soul to the Lord and trusted Him before she died, while she was on her sick bed. Listen to Him as He tells you how she feared the Lord, asking Him to pardon her iniquity and forgive all her sins.

Psalm 25
A Psalm of David. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me. Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed. Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day. Remember, O LORD, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses, For they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O LORD. Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way. All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name's sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. His soul will abide in prosperity, And his descendants will inherit the land. The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant. My eyes are continually toward the LORD, For He will pluck my feet out of the net. Turn to me and be gracious to me, For I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins. Look upon my enemies, for they are many, And they hate me with violent hatred. Guard my soul and deliver me; Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all his troubles. (Psa 25:1-22)

I think this Psalm is very appropriate, because there are so many people who consider themselves believers, but are convinced sister Claire went to hell. They are very vocal about it and have come out with their false revelations about it. I have a message for those people: "Do not spread false reports." (Ex 23:1). Gabriel Doufle is one of them and there are others, who claim to have received revelations from the Lord that she is in hell. Doufle seems to be triumphing over such "revelations" of her demise, as if they prove that his prophecy about her and brother Owour was valid. How sad that he and others would do so! They are not glorifying the Lord. And many of them are actually quite nasty in the way they go about it, even condemning others who say she is in heaven, as if it makes the Lord angry to say she entered into glory, and as if saying so endangers their own soul. The Lord said we would know false prophets by their fruits, and these are not good fruits.

Recall how sister Naomi saw in the dream that there were people who, instead of praying for sister Claire while she was on her sick bed, were thinking in their hearts that she was getting what she deserved. This is true, because those people that she once had fellowship and prayed with are now coming out against her treacherously. These enemies of hers are now seeking to exult over her death, as if they are hating her, saying she got what she deserved. The Lord guarded her soul and delivered her from all that, so that they did not triumph over her. In the end, she was not ashamed, because she took refuge in the Lord. Though she was afflicted, He was gracious to her. Though the troubles of her heart were multiplied, He brought her out of her distress.

Putting it All Together
In conclusion, brother Albert is definitely correct that his testimony helps to prove that what the Lord showed to him and sister Naomi is true. On May 10, the day sister Claire died, he received his revelation of her entering heaven, but he initially did not believe it and he only informed one person. Sister Naomi did not know about this on June 19, when she received her revelation from the Lord about sister Claire. And in that revelation sister Claire told her that the Lord had revealed to pastor Albert that she made it to heaven and he did not believe it until the Lord later helped him to believe it was true. She could not have known this on her own, since she had no prior knowledge of the vision given to him. Praise the Lord!

These revelations are definitely from the Lord, in my opinion. The Scripture says “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy." (Ac 2:17-18). Both the dream that the Lord gave unto sister Naomi and the vision He gave unto brother Albert bring glory to God, as well as the message He gave us in Psalms 24 and 25. They also demonstrate His riches in mercy, and encourage us to a life of purity, obedience, and service to the Lord.

The message is clear that she is in heaven with the Lord. May it encourage you to pray, work for the Lord, serving Him, using your life as an example, evangelizing others, winning many souls to Him, and also stir you up in your own walk with Him to live in righteousness, holiness and truth.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
