HOW TO LIVE FOREVER!- The 90 Year Old Man
Many of us occasionally think of our mortality, how long will we live. This is not just about old folks, but for everyone. Accidents, disasters, war, life-threatening sickness and disease can and do strike at any age. So the question is how can we live forever?!
Being retired, my husband Drgold and I would go shopping every Wednesday at the Grocery Outlet supermarket in Honolulu, where food prices were already very good, but an additional 10% discount was given to senior citizens. We would also meet some wonderful people there.
One day back in 2006, as Drgold was browsing the shelves, a man alongside of him pointed out a particular bottle of pickled olives, saying “if you eat this, you will live a long time.”
Drgold asked the man, “Yeah, how old are you?” The man answered, “I am 90!” The man looked very healthy like in his 70’s, so Drgold, in skepticism challenged him asking, “What year where you born?” The man quickly replied, “1916!”
Drgold asked him, “What is your name?“ He replied, “George!“ Then Drgold said, “George, I can tell you how you can be YOUNG forever”.
George asked, “HOW!?” Drgold said “Very simple, just change your last name! You would then be called George YOUNG forever– you live YOUNG, you die YOUNG, but you would always be YOUNG forever.” Drgold, as a fisher of men for the Lord as in Mark 1:17, was witnessing to this 90 year old man, and he took the bait!
Then Drgold said to George, “Now, I want to tell you how you can LIVE forever!”
Again, George quickly asked, “HOW?”
Drgold said, “You must accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and you will LIVE forever in heaven!”
Without missing a beat, George responded, “My sister is a long time Nun in the Catholic church!” probably thinking that her prayers would get him into heaven.
Then Drgold told him straightforwardly: “I am not talking about your sister, I am talking to you, how YOU can be saved and LIVE forever. Your sister cannot save YOU or HERSELF; only Jesus can save YOU!”
The Bible says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved! C’mon George, let’s pray together and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour right now.”
The 90-year man, right in the middle of the aisle of the big store, prayed with Drgold and accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour! George confessed Jesus with his mouth and believed in his heart that Jesus is alive to save him as in Romans10:9,10. Praise God!
The Bible states,
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16.
Drgold never saw George again, and beside that was many years ago. George has probably since died, and is already in heaven with the Lord Jesus
Folks, there is a heaven to gain, and a hell to shun! Jesus is the only way to heaven because He died for our sins, and because He lives today, we can also be with Him in heaven one day. Any other way to heaven is false and a lie of the Devil, who wants to take as many souls as he can to hell with him!
As for the Honolulu Grocery Outlet, it was shortly closed due to losing their lease. But like George, you can also live forever, too, if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour!
“Dear Jesus, I am a lost sinner. I believe that you died for me. Please forgive me for my sins and come into my heart today. I accept you as my Lord and Savior and with your help, I will live for you. Amen.”
The Bible says when one sinner comes to the Lord, all heaven rejoices:
Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Luke 15:10
To all of you who have visited and read our blogposts at ‘God’s Enduring Love‘ https://heulu.wordpress.com and ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes’ http://drgoldsite.wordpress.com, here are our prayers for you in the coming New Year 2020:
1. That you will draw closer to God this year, even moreso as we are ‘troubled on every side’ and continue to live in very difficult and ‘perilous times’ (2Cor 4:8; 2Tim 3:1).
2. That you will holdfast to God’s Word and His many promises to us who trust in Him and look for the Blessed Hope of His Soon Return in the Rapture (Titus 2:13). Do not waver in your faith or succumb to the things of the world, and fall into apostasy as many have by believing the deceptive lies of Satan.
Most of the world has celebrated the first part of Isaiah 9:6 ‘For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given’ and that is the extent of their understanding of why we celebrate Jesus’ birth. But they are ignorant of the rest of Isaiah’s prophecy (made 600 years before Jesus’ birth) which states ‘and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace‘. Jesus will soon return and establish His kingdom on earth. A government of lasting peace and justice under Jesus’ rule is coming soon. (vs 7).
3. That you will be studying the Word of God and looking for the signs of the Lord’s Return in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. It is only through diligence in Bible study will we have God’s approval and blessings, and understand the mysteries of His Word (2Tim 2:15).
Isaiah prophesied what the world would be like and gave a description of the people living in the last days just before Jesus’ Coming in Is60:1-2: ‘ARISE, SHINE; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.’ This is a Messianic prophecy and it clearly indicates that unstable world conditions, depravity and wickedness of the people will prevail in the endtime. These conditions already exist and are escalating.
DEAR FRIEND, if your love for God has grown lukewarm or if you do not have a meaningful relationship with God and haven’t yet accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord in your life, you are on dangerous ground. You are in deep big trouble and Satan will seek to destroy you (John 10:10). JESUS CAME TO GIVE US LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY. In John 3:16 it says to BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will not perish, but have eternal life. If you are missing peace and joy in your life and you have no assurance of where you will spend eternity, I IMPLORE YOU TO REPENT AND GET YOURSELF RIGHT WITH GOD! Please read my testimony in my ABOUT. I thought I had everything, but my life was empty and without peace and joy. I was a backslider for many years and lost my way, but God had His Hand on my life as He does yours. So REPENT, RETURN, AND BE RECONCILED WITH GOD. GOD BLESS YOU!!!
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3John 2). ~Liz and Wyman (Drgold)
