"MY ATTORNEY" 
 
   After living what I felt was a 'decent' life,
my time on earth came to the end. 
 
   The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench
in the waiting room of what I thought
 to be a court house.
 
   The doors opened and I was instructed to come
 in and have a seat by the defense table. 
 
   As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor.' 
 
   He was a villainous looking gent who snarled
 as he stared at me. 
 
   He definitely was the most evil person
 I have ever seen. 
 
   I sat down and looked to my left and there sat
 My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking
 man whose appearance seemed so
 familiar to me, I felt I knew Him. 
 
   The corner door flew open and there appeared 
the Judge in full flowing robes. 
 
   He commanded an awesome presence as He moved 
across the room, I couldn't take my eyes off of Him. 
 
   As He took His seat behind the bench,
 He said, 'Let us begin.' 
 
   The prosecutor rose and said, 
 
   'My name is Satan and I am here to show you 
why this man belongs in hell.' 
 
   He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and of my past when I cheated others.

 Satan told of other horrible perversions that were
 once in my life and the more he spoke,
 the further down in my seat I sank. 
 
   I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, 
even my own Attorney, as the devil told of sins that 
even I had completely forgotten about. 
 
   As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things 
about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney, who sat
 there silently not offering any form of defense at all. 
 
   I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had
 done some good in my life - couldn't that at least
 equal out part of the harm I'd done? (In reality,
 it counts as nothing toward salvation but does
 earn us rewards in heaven. But they count
 for nothing if we never enter heaven.)
 
   Satan finished with a fury and said, 'This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there
 is not a person who can prove otherwise.'
 
   When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed
this over the strong objection of Satan, and
 beckoned Him to come forward. 
 
   As He got up and started walking, I was able to see 
Him in His full splendor and majesty. 
 
   I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus
  representing me, my Lord and my Savior.
 
   He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, 
'Hello, Father,' and then He turned
 to address the court. 
 
   'Satan is correct in saying that this man has sinned,
  I won't deny any of these allegations.
 
   And, yes, the wages of (payment for) sin is death, and this man justly deserves to be punished.' 
 
   Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with
  outstretched arms and proclaimed, 'However,..... 
 
 I died on the cross so that this person might have 
eternal life and he has accepted Me as his
  Savior, so he is Mine.'
 
   My Lord continued with, 'His name is written in the 
book of life and no one can snatch him from Me. 
 
   Satan still does not understand yet. This man is
 not to be given justice, but rather mercy.'
 
   As Jesus sat down,  He quietly paused, looked at 
His Father and said, 
 
 'There is nothing else that needs to be done. 
   I have done it all.' 
 
   The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed
 from His lips..   'This man is free. 
 
   The penalty for him has already been paid in full. 
 
   Case dismissed.' 
 
   As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, 'I won't give up,
 I will win the next one.' 
 
I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where
 to go next, 'Have you ever lost a case?' 
 
   Christ lovingly smiled and said, 
 
   'Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same
 verdict as you, 
 
   ~Paid In Full~' 
 
 
 
    Heaven is FREE to those who believe Jesus is who He claims to be and did what He claims He did. Everyone is eligible for HIS mercy BUT we MUST ACCEPT it via belief in HIM. If someone does not BELIEVE in HIM, how then could HIS mercy apply to them?
 
   God does NOT save the whole world! Jesus died that the whole world MIGHT be saved, but not all will believe in Him. Those who DO believe WILL be saved from hell and enter into heaven on that fine and glorious day.
 
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.    NIV
