             Then Jesus said to his disciples,

"If anyone would come after me,  he must first deny himself and

take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life

will lose it, but whoever loses  his life for me will find it. 

           ( Matt. 16:24 )

Oh No!

 

I had on new clothes, New sneakers on my feet. I

 

was there for class on time, Went to the back and

 took my seat. Yeah, I'm moving up, I'm already

grown. Soon I'll be graduating, And out on my
own. I talked to some of my friends,

We were all having fun. Said some things I shouldn't

have said. Did stuff I shouldn't have done. I knew I

was different. I felt God touch my heart, I knew I

should set a standard, But then I'd be set
apart.

 

Walking to the bus, I was not looking for

strength. I heard the car tires screeching, But now

it's  too late. I'm standing in this room, And I

 can see  the heavenly gate. Oh no! I never prayed.

 

I thought  I had time to  get it straight! An angel

walked to me, He had a book in his hand. I knew it

was the Book of Life, When would this dream

 end? I told him my name, And he began to look.


Then he looked at me sadly and said, Your name

 is not in this book. Angel, this is a dream, No, I can't

be dead! He closed the book and turned away, He

whispered - You cannot proceed ahead.

 

No....

no this can't be real, Angel, you can't turn me away.

Let me talk to God, Maybe he'll let me stay. He led

me to the gate, Jesus  came to me. Now everything

would be alright.

He did not let me in but said, Beloved what is your

need? Jesus, I cried, please, Don't cast me away from

you. Tears ran down his face as he said, You knew

what you needed to do.


Lord, please I'm young, I never thought I would die.

I thought I'd have plenty of time, Death caught me by

surprise. Lord, I went to church, Please Jesus, I believe.

He said you would not accept me, My love you would

not receive. Lord, there were too many hypocrites.

They weren't being true. He took a step back and

asked, What does that have to do with you? Lord,

my family claimed to be saved, They weren't real.

 

You know. He said, I died for you, Now I have to go.
I fell to my knees crying to Him, Lord, I planned

 to be real tomorrow. I couldn't make Him understand,

I had never felt such sorrow.

Then it hit me hard, I said, Lord, where will I go?

 

He looked into my eyes and said, My child you already

know. Please Jesus, I begged, The place is so hot.

It seemed to trouble and grieve him, He whispered,

 

DEPART FROM ME, I KNOW YOU NOT!

Lord, you're supposed to be love, How can you send

me to damnation? He replied, With your mouth you

 said you loved me, But each day you rejected my

salvation.

With that in an instant, Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be, Now too late, I

know the Bible is right. If I can tell you anything,

Hell has no age. It is a place of torture, Separated

from God and full of rage.

You know, I thought it was funny, a joke, But this

 one thing is true.

 

If you never accept Jesus Christ,

HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU!  

 

So please, ask Him into your heart.

IF SOMEONE HAD A GUN HELD IN FRONT OF

 YOUR FACE,  AND ASKED YOU IF YOU BELIEVED

IN GOD, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?  SAY NO AND FEEL

ASHAMED THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

OR SAY

YES, I DO, AND DIE STANDING UP FOR GOD?
