    Do people know when they are going to die before they die?

    Recently a community leader died 'suddenly'. During the week since her death I have talked with individuals who was told by the deceased that she was 'dying' or that her life work had ended and she was going home. Of course nobody paid attention because they felt she was not serious, even though she was not one to joke. On the last day she came to work she gave me a gift but no hint.The only hint I  got once was from a friend who was going to have knee surgery.She said we would not see her anymore.Has anyone you know ever hinted about their death?

    Unless the death is sudden and unexpected, such as a fatal motor vehicle accident, I believe that many people are aware of their impending death.  It is my belief that the mind prepares the body for death; so, that when it comes it is not the enemy we thought it would be.

    There have been too many examples of people knowing their passing in advance for me to believe other.

    In Bible days, godly people who had lived good long lives, somehow knew when their time of departure from this life would be for them. They had time to gather their families around their beds, leave their house in order and bless each of their descendants. Only when all that had been taken care of, they would give up the ghost for good.   If that was possible then, it should be possible today too, providing, of course, that the person has had a close relationship to God for a long time.

      There have been several times for me when, shortly prior to their deaths, an incredibly strong desire to visit begins pushing me and nagging me- to visit and lead them to personally accept Christ.

    I don't think it's unreasonable that people know when they are dying.  I think the elderly are more aware of when they are going to die.  Younger people have more of a feeling of immortality.

    I think people know when their body is not right and whether it may be an illness or death they will know beforehand even if it's not something they can vocalise. 

    I have known elderly people who spend hours staring at the corner of the room where the ceiling meets the wall and who then begin to start mentioning their deceased other half.  I think that's a sign from them that they feel they are dying or that death is near.

    However, I do also know someone who had been diagnosed with a fatal illness but who didn't tell anyone about it, they just quietly went about wrapping up their affairs and making sure there were no loose ends and then appeared to die suddenly, it was only later it was found out that they'd been diagnosed with untreatable cancer months before.

    Of course. My neighbor;s life's boyfriend sure enoug did. They were broken up for about 3-6 months. She hadn't heard from him but heard that he was drinking heavily. He showed up at her door and didn't leave until he left one night in the ambulance. I thought he'd been drinking but when I spoke to my neighbor she said that he'd died. My mouth dropped to the floor. She said he'd been sick and never told her anything. But she knew something was wrong. Her house was always immaculant but he was on a damn cleaning spree. Washing every piece of clothing aroung the house. Tidied up their spare room; changed sheets, dusted vaccuumed mopped, brought new curtains and a comforter set. Fixed every thing even half broken. Did the things she'd been asking from him for months; all the manly things, because she was an iddy biddy something. She asked him what the matter was but he still refused to share. Right before bedtime he was wandering around the livingroom aimlessly. Opening doors and walking in closets, he was incoherent. She sat him down and he asked her to take him to their bedroom to lay down and she abiliged. But it was only to retrieve a large manilla envelope. "Open later." He said in Spanish. he  stumbled back to the livingroom and sat in her favorite chair. Not his but her favorite chair and  fell asleep. About an hour later he was stumbling in the living room she heard doors shutting and opening. She came into the living room and said, "You been drinking/ What's wrong with you?" He said nothing just kept stumbling around. She talked to him but he just mumbled over her. She knew something was gravly wrong. She felt him and he was burning up. She called the ambulance. I heard her yelling at him to calm down and to let the men helphim. I peeked out of the door. To be completely honest I was being that nosy neighbor you just hate to death. Peeking through a slight opening in her door. I saw him figting off the paramedics. I shook my head and went back in my apartment. I talked so badly about him and his drunken behavior, but that next day or so when I asked about him she said, "Jose died that night Felisha." My mouth hit the floor. "From alcohol poison?" She laughed and said, "No mama, he had cancer and never told me."

    Yes, definitely, if it's a slow decline.  My father seemed to know he was dying a few weeks before he passed away.  He seemed resigned to the fact, and expressed it many times, but was not happy about it either.

    Apparently, my parent's next door neighbour's husband was the same way just before he died.

    My mother sort of knew as well, but she was more fearful, as though she wasn't done living yet.

    A couple of years ago my grandmother, rather uncharacteristically, gave us our Christmas money (she always gave us money rather than a present) in September rather than December.  We all thought this a little odd.  Then she died in October, quite unexpectantly - though 97 she still lived alone and wasn't ill.  Did she somehow feel that she wouldn't be around at Christmas? I'll never know that now, but I've always wondered.

    I would say a resounding YES many of us will know when that time has arrived, many will not. Some people are foretold so in their dreams, others get a flash or strange feeling or a sense of total peace. I don't fear death and sometimes have wondered what it would be like to die, I dreamed I took my last breath and as I was gulping I suddenly woke up, I guess it was not my time to pass over. Do I believe in an after life, most certainly I do. Death is just a rebirth a cycle of life. I believe we meet our loved ones that passed before us, God has a higher plan for every human on earth that has passed and for those who will in the near or immediate future. Not fearing death, I sometimes get the feeling of peace knowing that my day will be at hand one day and in many respects I look forward to finding out the truth about our afterlife.

    My wife's dad passed away 12/26/79.  My wife had spent Christmas day at her parents' and when it was time to leave that night, her dad pleaded and pleaded for her to stay the night.  She said the look on his face was desperate.  She had not brought enough things for her 9 month old to be able to stay the night.  On her way back home, a good hour from her parents' house, she suddenly "knew" she would never see him again.  The next night he died.  The entire family feels that he knew he was going to die, just as she knew she would never see him again.  He died in a car accident.

    There are people who believe that you choose your own death, consciously or unconsciously. And there lots of examples of leaders, eg. who hinted of their own death - JFK, John Lennon, etc.
    John Lennon has been quoted as saying: “I'll probably be popped off by some loony“ when he was still a Beatle in the 60s.
    If you're familiar with Beatles, then there is a line in Lennon's "Come Together" that goes "Shoot me!" which is sprinkled generously throughout the song.
    Not to mention that he fired his bodyguard 3 weeks before he died. smile

    My Grandmother died when I was 12 of ALS and the day before she passed away (my brother and cousins birthday's) she invited over everyone she knew, from church, from work, family, friends, friends of family and family of the friends. She insisted that we have a huge party at her house, and so we did. Everyone was some what confused, but she was a mega social person anyway so we didn't think anything of it. Normally she would want people to start leaving at 9 or 10 but that night she wanted people to stay longer. She died the next morning. So yeah, I think people do know when they are going to die.

    Yes, Majority. I mean many people knows before dying that they are going to die. It happens a lot time, if not in their senses or they are not able to catch, but something happened, something spoken to them or from them occurs
    Like, with my GrandMa, She was taking to the Doctor for her check-up and serious diagnostic in her leg so before going while sitting in car she said, let me see my house briefly, and she had a hard, rare, long look all over to the outside house, gate, walls everywhere and said. now alright, take me to car. i don't know i will come back or not.

    and that was her last step out from the house, she remained in hospital for next 17 days and died there. Its something serious, there is many incidents, happenings and memories i have with me with other people also.

    its going painful for me, Ciao

    It depends on the person. Some people are more spiritual or sensitive to these things. Here are a couple of examples why I believe this...

    I knew a female minister who's very obese husband suddenly died of a heart attack. She said to me, "I don't understand why God didn't show us he was going to die." - I then wondered how she couldn't see that her obviously unhealthy husband probably WOULD die young. Some people are in denial about it, but I'm learning that when something seems "obvious", then I should look more directly at it.

    The other example is my husband's father whom we called "Tatko". My husband is a very spiritually sensitive person and two months before his father died, he dreamed that his deceased brother came to get him.

    We both knew that this was a sign that Tatko wasn't going to be with us much longer. I told my husband, "I've got to tell Tatko how much I love him and how much he has meant to me."  My husband went to see him and spend time with him and on my last phone conversation with him I told him how much I appreciated him. His reaction was interesting. I could tell he felt uncomfortable and I believe he realized that I was saying good-bye. He was also in denial as he was an athiest.

    I do not think that people do know about when they will die. I f anybody ever knew about when he will die,he would have said something about it to others. But it is possible that God wants to put such ideas in their mind as asking forgiveness from close relatives, or telling them about their will etc.

    Yes.  Firstly because we dream of our deaths far in advance of it actually happening.

    As we near our time we are made aware subconsciously and for some of us who are in tune with our subconscious; our deaths are made aware to our conscious minds.

    As I sit still and meditate on my death I can feel approximately how far away it is and I can almost tell you how it will be accomplished.

    Elephants have a similar instinct and so do dogs.

    My uncle sat at a kitchen table and talked about how if he died he would be okay because he knew that his children were taken care of.  He would be shot and killed the next evening while attempting to save a toddler from a gun fight that happened in the street. The toddler survived.

    Stories of people knowing they were going to die are as old as antiquity. 

    Everybody knows when and where they are going to die.  From the time they are born they know.

    I read a story of a 5 year old boy who was mangled horribly by two big Rottweilers.  They had punctured his neck and he was bleeding profusely.  As his mother held him in her arms he said to her "mommy I know I'm dieing but I want to know that I love you."

    My grandfather called my dad up; he very rarely called my dad so it was a pleasant surprise.  My grandfather was a man of few words. The jist of the conversation as my father would later tell me was that my grandfather had said he really missed my dad and he wished he could see him.  My grandfather would die of a massive heart attack 4 days later.  My father told me that he believed my grandfather knew he was going to die and the phone call was my grandfathers way of saying I'm not going to see you anymore but I love you; goodbye.

    Coincidentally my grandfather had told my father years before that he knew that when he died that he would die standing on his feet.  My grandfather suffered a massive heart attack while standing at a billiard table playing pool.

    I imagine I have this same "gift"? I think all human beings know when they are going to die.

They knew they were dying and we at peace with it. THe most striking comment I got from a man who died a few hours after he made this commebt was, "What does it mean when Jesus is washing your feet?" Wow, that was one powerful statement! He died with a smile on his face by the way.

    I think they start getting some hint even though they do not want to die.  I lost my Dad from Prostrate Cancer. He had a great desire to live and always asked the doctor for some medicine which could prolong his life but, when as the D-day was nearing he started to settle in emotionally and even uttered words such as he is not gonna be around for so and so event, which made us very upset and confused since, he had a great desire to live. Little did we realize that we should accept it just as he has.

    On the above note, all I can say is Thank You to that superficial power which hints us and makes us settle in for the D-Day so that we give in to it with peace.

He was insistant that something or someone was there and he was pleased to see whatever or whoever it was. Moments later he passed away. To this day I honestly beleiev he was pointing to a loved one possibly my mother who came to take him away from his pain.

    If you speak of dying from an illness or natural death,  yes I think they do.  My first wife had leukemia.  They gave her two years to live but she lived 6 years.  HOWEVER, a few days before the end of her life she wanted to have serious conversations about the afterlife.  What I told her is not relevant to this conversation and I am happy to share it if someone really wants to know   The night before she died she was in exceptional spirits.  She handed me several cards she had written for people including her father's birthday two days from that night. Eight hours later she went downhill rapidly passing away by morning.  When everyone opened their cards later they were shocked at her words, including her father... she told him "I won't be here for your birthday..." 

    So yes however it happens they know somehow, someway...that the end is now.

    For those who believe such things, many budhists and priests believe that when you are dying, or nearing the end of your life, an angel comes to help you pass on. to ease your suffering or to help you. If such things do exist maybe people who are nearing death can sense their presence, My Grandmother died almost 10 years ago from a long bout of uncontrolled caner, so even though she knew from results and things alike that she didnt have much time left, it seemed like she knew what was waiting for her on the other side. and she seemed to know as the hours drew closer that she was going to die. with no visible change to her stats or pain, she just felt that it was coming.

    I assume she did not take her own life.  However, I think it is possible for knowledge of impending life's end without that.

    Sometimes despair might be at fault.  A writer in the Bible predicted he soon would die - opining that it was far better for him to go into Jesus' presence, but more profitable for those he was writing to, that he remain.  He was "torn".

    When folks retire, if they are not forward looking and just vegetate, often  are candidates for the cemetery - in that they no longer have spark.  That's statistically true, though I haven't that stat at my fingertips.

    Those who come to know this, for whatever reason, have been given a gift:  They may make peace with God through Jesus Christ.  Not an option on the other side.

    But it should be added:  If we breath, we have a purpose or reason for it.  God preserves our life, until we have walked our walk in full.  Never should despair of purpose trouble us, and trusting God's purposes for life is far better.

    I guess there are some but not all. we can see that many people end their lives due to car accident or unexpected shot by others. There are some who dream about their death right before their die. It seems that there are some people who know that they are going to die soon from their dreams or others alike. In the Bible,it seems that Paul knows that he is going to die soon when he wrote letters to timothy. However, he did not mention the exact hour and days. Some one may know in advance before he dies that he is going to die, however, i don't think that he knows exactly the hour of his death before he dies. That may be God's secret for all human being , in fact for a our good..
