I do not know if this story actually happened, but I am sure it did as I have read and heard similar stories and have had similar dreams myself.
This is about a lady and her friend but is meant for you Men too!! Just substitute the name with your own and that of your friend.
One day a woman named Louise fell asleep in her bed and dreamed a very fitful dream. She dreamed that someone in Hell wrote a letter to her, and it was to be delivered to her by a messenger. The messenger passed between the lakes of burning fire and brimstone that occupies Hell, and found his way to the door that would lead him to the outside world. Louise dreamed that the messenger walked to her house, came inside, and gently but firmly woke Louise up. He gave her the message, saying only that a friend had wrote it to her from Hell. Louise, in her dream, with trembling hands took the letter and read:
I stand in Judgment now, and feel that you’re to blame somehow.
On earth, I walked with you day by day, and never did you point the way.
You knew the Lord in truth and glory, but never did you tell the story.
My knowledge then was very dim; you could have led me safe to Him.
Though we lived together on the earth, you never told me of the second birth, and now I stand this day condemned, because you failed to mention Him.
You taught me many things, that’s true, I called you “friend” and trusted you.
But now I’ve learned that it’s too late, you could have kept me from this awful fate.
We walked by day and talked by night, and yet you showed me not the Light.
You let me live, and love, and die, you knew I’d never live on high.
Yes, I called you a “friend” in life, and trusted you through joy and strife.
And yet on coming to the end, I cannot, now, call you “My Friend.”
After reading the letter, Louise awoke. The dream was still so real in her mind, and sweat dropped from her body in pools. She swore she could still smell the smell of brimstone and smoke from her room. As she contemplated the meaning of her dream, she realized that as Christian, she has failed in her duty to “go out to all the world and preach the gospel.” As she thought of that, she promised herself that the next day, she would call Marsha and invite her to church with her. The next morning she called Marsha and this was the conversation:
Hello, Bill, Is Marsha there? Louise, you don’t know? Marsha was killed last night in car accident. I thought you had known.
To the Lost Person Jesus Loves you and is speaking to you now.
Are you a Marsha?
Have you never heard the Gospel, the good news that Jesus came to die for your sins so that you might have eternal life? Have you heard it and rejected it? Are you believing a lie that you can do it anytime and when you have had your “FUN” then you will think about it? I was like that.
If a Christian friend has never asked you this question I am asking it now. If you died right now, what would happen to you? If you do not know I would like to tell you. You, your spirit/soul goes to one of two places, Heaven or Hell. The choice of which one is your decision and yours alone. No one can make that choice for you. You say I don’t believe all of that so it does not matter. Oh yes it does. Just because you chose to not believe it does not make it so. Are you willing to take that chance and spend eternity in the lake of fire?
If you do not know for sure where you will go then I can assure you that you will go to Hell. There is only ONE way to get to heaven and that way is through Jesus Christ. If you believe any other way or that all will go then you are deceived. If you believe the church will save you, being baptized, sprinkled with water, confessing to a priest and him telling you that you are forgiven, you are being lied too!! As I said, the only way is through Jesus Christ. If you would like to know how and be 100% sure, Click here for scripture and find out.
To the Christian who won’t speak up.
Friend, is this your testimony? Are you witnessing to your friends that you are with everyday? Is there a friend in hell, asking you why you did not tell them about the Lord? It is too late when a person dies to wonder if they are saved or not. Make sure you ask all of your family and friends because if you don’t one day it will be too late. It is their decision to accept the gospel or reject it.
As Christians we must be Christ-Like. Christ commanded us to go out and preach his word, so that others would come to the saving knowledge of God. It says in the Bible in Romans 1:16 that we are not to be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, and in 2nd Timothy 1:8 it says the same thing. If nothing else plant a seed, tell everyone Jesus loves them, died for them and let the Holy Spirit do the rest.
