“Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” – I Corinthians 15:51-55

It was 3:03 A.M. when Monica and Jonathan received phone calls from both sets of parents right behind each other. Pastor Richardson had passed away in his sleep. It was a sad time as plans were made to attend the funeral. It was a very sober but touching home-going service as Brother Reynolds delivered the eulogy. The auditorium was filled to capacity, the overflow rooms were filled. Monitors were installed in some of the classrooms to accommodate family, friends, visitors, and well-wishers to this sad yet happy occasion as they celebrated the home-going of a great man of God.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Brother Reynolds began, “this was Pastor Richardson’s final request for his funeral, and that is, that I cut through all the platitudes and share God’s simple plan of salvation. That was his life’s work and ministry: sharing with the lost how they can gain eternal life. He is now resting in Heaven, and he says if you wish to see him again at your time of death, which will come, then listen to these words from God that I am about to share with you, and do what these words tell you to do:

“First, accept the fact that you are a sinner. Ecclesiastes 7:20 says: ‘For there is not a just man upon earth that sinneth not.’ Romans 3:23 says: ‘For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.’

“Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: ‘For the wages of sin is death…’

“Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: ‘And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.’

“Fourth, accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself. The Bible states in Ephesians 2:8 and 9: ‘For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.’

“Fifth, accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself and He wants to save you from hell. John 3:16 says, ‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’

“God wants you to repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and pray and ask Him to forgive you of your sins and to come into your heart and save you this very moment. Romans 10:9 and 13 says: ‘That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.’ ‘For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

“And I end with these words: Death can be the entrance to the reunion of family and friends for eternity in Heaven, or it can be the exit to the separation of family and friends for all eternity in hell. If you wish to see Pastor Richardson and other family and friends who have gone on home to Heaven to be with the Lord then believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. You can seal that belief by praying the following prayer:

“Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I have sinned against You by breaking Your commandments. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please forgive me of my sins as I now believe with all my heart that Jesus Christ died for my sins, was buried, and rose so that I could have the victory over death and have eternal life in Heaven with God. Lord Jesus, please come into my life and save my soul from sin and from the punishment of sin which is hell. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins and to turn away from my old life and to follow you in the new life. Amen.”

Thank you for joining us for this episode of Whyte House Family stories. You may purchase a copy of this novel and any other Christian fiction books read on this podcast from Amazon.com.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
