LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
I, Born into Sin, but now Redeemed by God, do hereby state that all which follows here-in is true and is of my consent, absent of duress; being of sound and sober mind and is the first and only testament of my final wishes in the event of my demise.
I wish first off, to be remembered for my testimony of the saving grace of Jesus Christ and that through the blood He shed at Calvary, I was made whole and righteous in His sight. I am a sinner saved by grace and through nothing I could have ever done of my own. Of all the things I may posses, this is by far and of all, the most precious possession I have. I am a child of The King, heir to the greatest Kingdom ever known to man. Although it is not a tangible item, by terms and purpose of this document, it is something that is attainable by any/all (whosoever will) and is certainly not restrictive to any which this testament may apply.
It is so important to me to proclaim my Salvation for all who are present to hear when this document is read, due to the attack I have come under concerning the surety of my Born Again experience.
The world doesn't want to hear about the Blood of Jesus. And if Satan doesn't beat you down through them, he'll try to do so within your own camp. Know this: If you have been convicted, lead by the Holy Spirit to give your heart to the Lord, believe that Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead, have repented of your sins, asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior and were sincere – YOU ARE SAVED.
Let no man, nor the battering of Satan's devices, or the thoughts and opposition during your daily life, or even through the words and actions of other people, cause you to doubt your Salvation.
As for my worldly possessions, I care not who may have them. I've not laid up my treasures in this world, but instead have done so in heavenly places.
It will matter not in the least to me who may take possession of my pieces of fabric called clothes. I'll be wearing a robe.
As for the shiny trinkets I adorned myself with now and then, take and enjoy them. I'll care not. I'll be wearing my new crown.
Nor will I have any use for the metal and wood formed into the house I borrowed while on earth. Jesus has prepared a place for me. If it were not so He would have told me.
I'll have no use for my mode of transportation, drive it if you wish. I'll get around just fine in my new and perfect body.
I'll have no need of that which we called money. Give it so others might hear of this place and want to come too. It will be well spent. All I need will be supplied.
And as for the time you have left that I no longer have need of – live it daily unto the Lord. For I will have a never ending window of time to praise my Lord and Savior. THAT will be living life to the fullest!
By the clod or by the cloud, occupy until God calls you home. I'll rejoice when you arrive!
This document needs no witnesses as the TRUTH never needs a back-up and will stand forever.
See you soon!
