2 Kings 20.1 "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live."
This is a short version...One Tuesday morning, I went to an 11 A.M. prayer meeting at a local church. Names on a list were called out; some were sick, some were in need of salvation. I recognized the name of the husband of one of the women attending the prayer meeting. He was a good man, attended church, but had never been born again. As his name was called out, the Lord spoke to me and said, "I want you to go see this man after this meeting is over." The command was urgent, so as soon as the meeting was over, I drove the three miles to see him.
I knocked on his door, he came to the door, opened it and asked me, "What are you doing here?" I replied, "I came to pray for you." He tried to change the subject. Suddenly, the anointing of the Lord came on me, and I looked directly in his eyes and said, "Get your affairs in order, you are about to die." He looked at me in a shocked manner, and I said, "Now, let me pray for you." He sat down in his easy chair, and I laid my hands on him and began to pray and asked the Lord to reveal his love to this man.
Immediately, Jesus came and His presence filled the place. The man was born again. I saw the tears flow and felt the blessed assurance. He told his family what had happened and testified to his spiritual rebirth.
Saturday night, four days after he was born again, he went home to be with the Lord.
Lord, I pray that whosoever reads these words would recognize the shortness of our life here on earth. They would understand the everlasting importance of being born again.
John 3.3 "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
