Life After The Fall
name is Robert. A number of years ago I
was living in sin ... smoking, drinking, clubbing and had a girlfriend that was a dancer! I never went to church or
read the Bible and was not sure if there was a God. I had no thought for God or
One morning I
had just finished working and laid down on the bed. As I lay there I had a
visitation from the Lord. The power of God came upon me and convicted me of
sin. The Lord revealed to me that the Bible is true and that it is the Word of
God. As the Spirit of the Lord brought conviction to my heart I began to cry.
heard a voice say to me, " Do you believe in the Father, The Son and the
Holy Spirit? " I replied, " Yes! " Following this incident,
I experienced both forgiveness of sins
and peace in my heart. ( Prior to this time I had neither peace nor joy ! ).
after my visitation, outlined above, I fell from the window of my flat. At that
time I was living in a flat on the 7th floor of a 16 floor apartment complex (
see photograph opposite ... seven windows up and on the far left hand
side). As I was falling rapidly towards the ground, I called out to Jah **.
(** Sing unto God, sing praises to his name:
extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before
him. Psalm 68:4 )
then heard a voice reply, " You are saved." I believe that God
delivered me that day because I could
have fallen onto a concrete border next to the apartment complex and at the
best the impact would have paralysed me or in the worst case scenario the fall
would have resulted in my death.
did not land on the concrete but on a grass verge several feet distant from the
A newspaper account of the incident
commented, ' The man left a seven - inch indentation in the grass below.'
I preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ because God' s love and grace has
been shed into my heart. I also work as a nurse and see some people come into
hospital alive and go out dead. I am writing this leaflet to remind you that
life is like a vapour. The Bible says :-
Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that
appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4: 14
urge you to give your life to Jesus Christ and believe in your heart so you
will have eternal life (Romans 10:13; Matthew 1:21; Acts 2:37, 38 and Acts 4:12). I offer the following prayer as
a first step.
Heavenly Father I come to you now. Lord I am a sinner. I have sinned against you even this day, but Lord, I come and ask you in the name of Jesus that you will forgive me for all my sins, that you will wash me in the blood of Jesus and I shall be cleansed from all sin. I thank you now for saving me. Come into my heart and into my life and Lord lead me by your Spirit and help me to live for you from this day forth and I thank you now in Jesus' name, Amen.
To continue as a true believer you must follow the Lord Jesus Christ. This involves regularly:
- Reading the Bible;
- Praying to God in Jesus' name;
- Fellowshipping with other born-again believers.
