    LETTER IN THE NIGHT

    This is pretty deep and definitely worth reading! You just can't keep it to yourself, you've got to tell somebody about the love of God! Be Blessed!

    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:

    My Friend,
    I stand in Judgment now,
    And feel that you're to blame somehow.
    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 I learn now that it's too late,
    You could have kept me from this 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 andstrife.
    And yet on coming to the end,
    I cannot, now, call you "My Friend."
    Marsha

    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 acrid smell of brimstone and smoke from her room.

    As she contemplated the meaning of her dream, she realized that as a Christian, she had 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?

    No, Bill, know what?

    Marsha WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT IN A CAR ACCIDENT. I thought you new.

    Fellow Christian, is this your testimony? Are you witnessing to your friends that you are with everyday? Or will there be a friend of yours in Hell, asking you why you did not tell them about JESUS?

    As your friend. . .
    If you don't know Jesus, here's how:

    If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 - 10)

    If you have not done so, just pray this prayer:

    "Dear God, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is your son and that he died on the cross for my sins. Jesus, forgive me of my sins and come into my heart and become my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen."

    PS. If you are a believer - new or old, send this to others and let them know you are a true friend.

    That story was incredible, It really brought tears to my eyes reading it.

    I had a similar story that really happened to me and really gave me tons of faith and belief in God above. When my fiance' and I were just an engaged couple.

    He had a job that took him miles from home. One night I came suddenly awake to find him standing next to my bed. Telling me the accident was minor and I am ok.

    This occured at approx. 4:30 am about 2 hours later he called me to wake me for the day and let me know he was thinking of me. I asked him "What happened" "what caused the accident?" He was astounded and wanted to know how I already knew? I told him because he told me at 4:30 when he was next to my bed. He then informed me that the accident occured at 4:30 and there was no way I could know because he was nowhere near a phone.

    My only explanation of the whole situation was that God had wanted me to know how well he protects those who believe and accept him so therefore he made certain that I was aware that my life partner was ok and would come back home again.
