A Deathbed Testimonial!


A couple of years before the death of my father-in-law, he related this personal experience to me with much fervor. He said:

“It was 1959. My family was on vacation and was returning home. On the drive I started to have thoughts about my Dad and could not concentrate on anything else. When we arrived home within a few minutes the phone rang and it was my mother telling us that my Dad had suffered a heart attack and was in the hospital. The Doctor had advised her to tell me to come right away.

We packed and left in about an hour for the 450-mile drive. We drove all night, arriving in the morning. I went straight to the hospital and was shown to my Dad’s room. He was sitting up with blood pressure cuffs on both legs and arms which was to reduce the stress on the heart.

He greeted me warmly and we talked for several minutes when he said, “I have something to tell you. I almost died last night, but I knew you were on your way here. I could hear your little girls in the back seat of your car and heard you talking. I want you to never forget that Jesus exists. He came to me last night and kept me alive until you could be with me.” A few minutes later he expired. This profoundly affected me, and there was no way he could have known I was coming!”

My father-in-law has since passed away while in his late eighties. I know there are naysayers of experiences such as these, but I am a believer that thousands of stories, like the one my father-in-law told, are real. Be it literal or symbolic, similar profound experiences related by thousands of people over the centuries have blessed the lives of millions. Faith stories are passed down from generation to generation and continue to serve as evidence that Jesus Christ is real and does, in fact, communicate through the spirit of God that we are not insignificant to Him and that we are beings of an eternal nature.  I hold this fact to be self-evident!
