He is one of the few prophecy teachers, for that matter Bible teachers period that I never heard speak a word in anger and never did I hear him condemn a person who did not yet believe in Jesus Christ. The text below is from another forum discussing Grant Jeffrey's passing. It was in response to some one asking why God did not heal Grant.
According to Kaye, Grant Jeffrey's wife, there was a great supernatural peace that filled the room when Grant died. That same power could have just as easily healed Grant of his heart failure. So obviously those that experienced the power when Grant died knew for sure Jesus was not forsaking Grant but rather reassuring those present especially Kaye that God had not ignored their prayers for healing but rather that it was just time for Grant to be in heaven.
God does this sometimes to affect the hearts of others, especially Christians that might take end times prophecy teachers for granted. There is very few end times prophecy teachers left since it is very hard to raise money for end times prophecy. No one wants to hear about the terrible things of the end let alone support it with their money. Not to mention many Christians take the subject for granted because so many have made mistakes in the past. It is a difficult subject to teach and an easy subject to make an honest mistake in. Grant was an excellent teacher, he did not set dates and gave the message in love and great patience.

It is sad when a fellow Christian falls asleep, yet we know that at Jesus Christ's return for us, all those who are dead in Christ shall be raised.
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
"13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
However, as we anticipate his return for us, we can heed one of Jesus Christ's admonitions given in
"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
The best day we can live is today.
Even though we sorrow, we do not sorrow as those who do not have the hope of Jesus Christ's return to gather us up.
