”There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven.” NLT
The story is told of Betty as she describes her life: This is my life. I will get saved when “I Have Time”. As I grew up, the Lord kept his hand on me. He healed my deformed leg from birth. Now I walk like you. Thank you Jesus!
He showed me right from wrong. But, I think I’ll get saved when I turn 30. “I Have Time!” I got hooked on drugs, He brought me through. Thank you, Jesus!
I got pregnant and cried to the Lord. He gave me a husband and we had more children. I said to myself, “When I turn 30, I’ll get saved. I Have Time!”
I have no food in my house. My children are hungry. I asked the Lord to make a way. Right then my doorbell rings. It’s the UPS man in a big brown truck. He has an envelope for me. I sign as I open it. It’s a check for $500. “Thank you Jesus.” Again I promise, “When I turn 30, I’ll get saved. I Have Time!”
I read my Bible. I know of the Lord. He and I go way back. I Have Time! It’s Saturday night and I am going to have myself some fun. I’m still young. I put the kids to bed. I’m having a blast with guys everywhere around me when I see my sister running at me. She tells me one of my children was playing with matches and was severely burnt. Again, I cried to the Lord. “LORD, LORD, Hear my prayer. Help me LORD.” And, he did. He did not take my child. I’m really going to get saved when I turn 30. “I Have Time!”
I’m almost 30 now and Guess What? Tonight is my last night to live it up in my unsaved life. Tomorrow is Sunday and I will be in church praising the Lord. Then I’ll get saved. However, for now it’s still Saturday. “I Have Time!”
I am having so much fun at my party in the back yard. All the people at my party throw me in the pool. I feel a snap in my neck.
SOMETHING IS HAPPENING TO ME. WHAT’S WRONG? I DON’T KNOW. I SEE LIGHT — BRIGHT SHINNY LIGHT IN THE DISTANCE!
THERE ARE PEOPLE ALL AROUND ME BUT I CANNOT TALK. I CRY TO THE LORD. “LORD WHAT TIME IS IT?”
“ITS 11:55” — “WHO SAID THAT?” “IS THAT YOUR VOICE GOD?”
“MY NAME IS LUCIFER. I DON’T LOVE YOU, I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU AND I JUST WANT YOUR SOUL. EVERY TIME I CAME FOR YOU THE LORD SAID NO. SOMEONE WAS PRAYING FOR YOU, SO I PLANTED A SEED TO MAKE YOU THINK YOU STILL HAD TIME TO BE SAVED. YOU SEE, I’M SMART, I CAN’T BE TRUSTED AND I’M THE BEST LIAR.”
Betty died five minutes before she turned 30 years old.
Prayer: Father I pray this message will reach those who think they still have time. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
