across this poem on the internet and there was
not a name for the author, I wish there was...
This is one of the most powerful poems I have ever read,
and is true, according to God's Word...
If you know someone that has not accepted Jesus as their
PLEASE pass this page to them.....Especially if they are
Death is no respecter of age, it comes for the young,
and in between!
Revelation 20: 15
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
cast into the lake of fire.
I Should Have Known
I went into my classroom
Ready for another year at school.
I didn't want the work,
Just wanted to hang and be cool.
I had on new clothes,
New sneakers on my feet.
I was there for class on time
Went to the back and took my seat.
Yeah, I'm moving up.
I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating
And out on my own.
I talked to some of my friends.
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said,
Did stuff I shouldn't have done.
I knew I was different.
I felt God TOUCH my heart.
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I'd be set apart.
Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now-- it's too late.
I'm standing in this room
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight.
An angel walked to me.
He had a Book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life.
When would this dream end?
I told him my name
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
"Your name is not in this Book."
"Angel, this is a dream.
No, I can't be dead!"
He closed the Book and turned away.
He whispered - "You cannot proceed ahead."
"No, no, this can't be real!
Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God.
Maybe He'll let me stay."
He led me to the gate.
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in, but said,
"Beloved, what is your need?"
"Jesus," I cried, "please!
Don't cast me away from you."
Tears ran down His face as He said,
"You KNEW what you needed to do."
"Lord, please, I'm young.
I never thought I would die.
I thought I'd have plenty of time.
Death caught me by surprise."
"Lord, I went to church.
Please, Jesus, I believe!"
He said, "You would not accept Me.
My love you would not receive."
"Lord, there were too many hypocrites!
THEY weren't being true."
He took a step back and asked,
"What does that have to do with you?"
"Lord, my family claimed to be saved.
They weren't real-- You know."
He said, "I died for ~ YOU!
Now, I have to go."
I fell to my knees, crying to Him.
"Lord, I planned to be real ~ tomorrow."
I couldn't make Him understand.
I had never felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard ~ I said,
"Lord, where will I go?"
He looked into my eyes and said,
"My child, you ALREADY know."
"Please, Jesus," I begged,
"The place is so hot!"
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him.
He whispered, "DEPART FROM ME, I KNOW YOU NOT."
"Lord, You're supposed to be love.
How can You send me to damnation?"
He replied, "With your mouth you SAID you loved Me,
But each day you rejected My salvation."
With that, in an instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be.
Now, it's too late ~ I always knew the Bible was right.
If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God and full of rage.
You know, I thought it was a funny joke.
But this one thing is true ~
If you never accept Jesus Christ,
HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU!
The Author is not known to me.
Scripture From Romans 10
If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and
with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him
shall not be ashamed.
If you are not sure of where you
will spend eternity and you would like to be sure
HERE And read how to be sure...
