Hi Dad

Seems like I have been very Emotional lately.
Cried Often..... and Yes, this one made me cry again.

Subject: Hi Dad....

In all ways acknowledge him and he will direct
thy paths. Proverb 3:6

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

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, 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 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 In the 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?

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, 'Hi, Dad,' and then He turned to address the court.

'Satan was correct in saying that
this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes,
the wages of sin is death, and this man 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've 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~'


"Stop telling God how big your storm is.

Instead, tell the storm how big your
God is!"

Happy New Year

If you do Not Know the Lord Jesus As Your Personal Lord and Savior,
I Pray that This Is the Year that You Do.

And If You Already Do.....Isn't It Wonderful To Know That Your Sin Debt Is Already ...

Paid In Full.
