Whitney Houston

Had Premonition About Death

2/15/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston told friends she "really wanted to see Jesus" in the days before her death ... and claimed she had a feeling the end was near for her ... this according to several of Whitney's friends.

TMZ has learned ... Whitney had been very spiritual in her final days ... quoting the bible, singing hymns and engaging in intense conversations about Jesus Christ and the afterlife with her close friends and family members.

We're told .... on Friday , one day after she performed, "Yes Jesus Loves Me" at Tru nightclub in Hollywood, Whitney told one of her friends, "I'm gonna go see Jesus ... I want to see Jesus."

The next morning, hours before her death, Whitney was discussing a bible passage involving John the Baptist and Jesus ... when Houston flashed a big smile and remarked, "You know, he's so cool ... I really want to see that Jesus."

Another source tells us ... Whitney had been telling friends she "felt like her time was coming" ... and wanted to make sure she spent her time praising her lord and savior whenever she could.

Unfortunately, Whitney's premonition came true.

We're told the bible passages Whitney was quoting on the morning of her death were Matthew 3:13 through 17 ... referencing the baptism of Jesus. The passage goes:

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

kind of rude for people to judge others on their christian beliefs. People that have actually read the bible know that jesus christ forgave mary magdalene and walked among people with Leprosy . Why wouldn't he forgive whitney houston for her indiscretions? Do you really think drugs didn't exist in biblical times? Read a bible before judging someone else. He without sin cast the first stone. Sins have always been on a equal plane, no sin is greater or less.
Whatever your beliefs are whitney is truly in peace now.
I always have believed hell is here on earth, you face trials and tribulations. When, you are dead, it is a final peace. Tearing her apart on websites here doesn't bother whitney anymore. She is at peace for once in her life.
Those of you saying she is worm bait are really immature. All bodies break down at the time of death. It is a matter of time, before we all succumb to our bodies and die. Some sooner than others.

Listen. These "friends" likely do not know Whitney at all. CeCe Winans talks about how she talked to Whitney a few days before she died. They talked about the bible, but only in the sense that CeCe was trying to make sure Whitney was reading it more. Please know that Whitney LIVED for her daughter. She would not have left her. And frankly, she would not have said those things knowing they could get back to Bobbi Kristina and worry her.

In any case, the devil and his illuminati minions can go after to kill a person, they can persecute one who renegs on their deal with the devil, they can try to manipulate image....but ultimately, but they can't control if person calls on the Lord in their own thoughts or verbally out loud. So thankfully what Whitney was taught as a child came back to her - she remembered Christ, and longed for him, knowing satan was coming to snuff her out. Just like Stephen, from the New Testament portion of the Bible, he was still proclaiming the Lord even while he was being killed by stoning. She's in heaven with her Maker. While she was alive, she had her weaknesses - we all do. Christians are not perfect, we all have problems - the difference is in who do we believe can ultimately can save our souls.

Whitney knew the Lord, she grew up in the church. He remained in her life, she just strayed away. She had discernment and she knew it was time to go home. God bless her soul and her family.

I am waiting for TMZ to show a photo of her casket on saturday. They have been tasteless with every celebrity death in the past. I wish she would have moved to europe like many other singers do and enjoyed a half way normal life from the spotlight. You don't see Tina Turner coming back to live here anytime soon. The press is compassionate to other people's privacy in europe. If, I was a star I would leave the US. Whitney needed to get away from the entire culture here. People tear apart others to make themselves look or feel better.

Was Whitney's raving on about dying, the afterlife, and how her time had come part of how she seemed just fine by Cissy and Dionne? Enablers!

TMZ you need better researchers. Almost everything you've written about Bobby and Whitney has been shot down. Bobby issued a statement and said the rumors about not attending the funeral were wrong. He is attending the funeral. Who is on your research staff?
You used to be the "BIBLE" but not anymore.
