“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

“I must wait God’s time to be saved,” say some.

GOD’S TIME IS NOW! Yes, an ever-present “now.”

Tomorrow may be too late. “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1).

Every tick of the clock, every beat of your pulse, and every breath that you draw brings you nearer, nearer and NEARER still to


Where would you spend it if you were to die this moment?

In light or in darkness?

In heaven or in hell?

With Christ or with Satan?

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, NOW, and you are among those of whom the Holy Spirit speaks by the Apostle Paul, in the Epistle to the Romans:

“NOW justified by His blood” (Romans 5:9).

“NOW … received the reconciliation” (Romans 5:11 JND).

“NOW … made free from sin” (Romans 6:22).

“NOW … delivered from the law” (Romans 7:6).

“NOW no condemnation … in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).

Thousands are already in eternity, LOST! They failed to recognize the importance of that little word “NOW.” They meant to repent and believe the gospel, but they put it off and put it off, until it was too late. Therefore, I urge you, NOW is God’s time; ignore it and it may be NEVER!

God’s Simple Message

“Verily, verily, I say unto you.” In John 5:24, there are five things the Lord says.

The first thing is:

“He that heareth My word.”

How simple to listen, to stop our efforts, to turn from ourselves, to pay attention and come to Him, to hear His voice speaking to us, showing us our need or telling of His love.

The second thing is:

“Believeth on Him that sent Me.”

If anyone can truly say, “I have heard, and I believe,” what has he received? Everlasting life.

That is the third thing:

“Hath everlasting life.”

And if you have the first and the second, you must have the third.

Then the fourth is:

“Shall not come into judgment.”

And the fifth:

“Is passed from death unto life.”

For Certain

The last opportunity of hearing God’s gospel


The last opportunity of accepting it


The last moment of your life on earth


The judgment day


“Boast not thyself of TOMORROW; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth”
(Proverbs 27:1).

A Bell in a Well

The Man Who Had Nothing

Mr. Bell always said that he “found God in a well,” but perhaps it should be said that God found him in a well. He certainly had not been seeking God! In fact, in spite of having had Christian parents, he was living only for himself to have “a good time.” So when his parents died in England, he moved to Canada and bought a farm near Oxbow, Saskatchewan.
He dug a 17-foot well on the farm. Someday he was going to put a ladder down it to get in and out of the well if necessary, but that ladder never got built.

Trapped in Near Freezing Water
One day, when he was about 55 years old, a neighbor came to his place for a load of hay and promised that he would be back in the afternoon for another load. Left alone, Mr. Bell went down to his well to get a bucket of water. He slipped and fell into the well! There he stayed, in water halfway up his chest, for five hours.

Following the dog’s urging, he looked at last in the well.
His “good time” came to an end. God had put him in a place where he was helpless. He realized now that God was the only One he could cry to. Right then and there he took the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, trusting in the precious blood of Christ to cleanse him from all his sins.
Late in the afternoon the neighbor came back for the other load of hay. Entering the yard he could not see Mr. Bell, who was by now unable even to call for help, but the dog came running to him whining and thrusting his nose into his hand. Following the dog’s urging, he looked at last in the well.
Friendly hands soon were able to draw the poor man up―out into the icy air. It was 40 degrees below zero that day, and in his soaked clothes he was nearly frozen.
Mr. Bell’s health suffered greatly from this experience; when he was finally able to leave the hospital the doctors told him he had not long to live. In view of this, he turned his farm back to the man he had been buying it from and bought a little land in the town of Oxbow. There he had a small house built to live in the rest of his time down here, near medical help.
But the doctors were surprised. He didn’t die then, though he was never really well again. The Lord left him in his little house for 17 years, years that he spent in telling all who visited him of his experience. Children from the town often came and visited him and listened as he told them of the Lord Jesus’ love for sinners and how he was now trusting in Jesus for salvation.
After those years he was brought into the hospital in a wheelchair, all crippled up with arthritis. I was in the hospital for an operation at the time, and he was put in a bed in the room where I was with three others. He immediately started to tell his life story. He began by saying, “You can’t tell me there isn’t a God! I am reaping for what I sowed in my life!”
“God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
Rejoicing in the knowledge of his sins being forgiven, he was just waiting the Lord’s time to take him home to the Father’s house. While he remained here in this world he was telling his story to all he came in contact with. Even though some laughed and made fun of him, he kept talking. He had good news to tell!

The Leary Barn Fire That Didn’t Happen

Sam Leary’s Barn

This was not Mrs. O’Leary’s barn, made notorious by the Chicago fire. Nor was there the famous cow that kicked the lantern over in this barn. In fact, there were no cows in Sam Leary’s barn. It was all cleaned out to be used for a series of gospel meetings. Many people had been attending the meetings every night, and several received the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.

Some of the boys of the neighborhood began to make plans to disrupt the meetings. They arranged that two of them should fasten and guard the door, while a third went up on the roof and dropped a bucket of burning sulfur down through a hole in the middle of the barn. Other boys watched from a safe distance to share in the fun.

“The game’s all up! Come on!”

The meeting was well under way, and the two at the door had done their part in blocking the door. Now they stood waiting to hear confusion inside and a rush made for the door. Nothing happened. They dared not call to Ben on the roof for fear it might warn those inside.

What Are You Waiting For?

At last, after waiting half an hour, one of them climbed up to find Ben. There he was, with his head close to the opening in the roof, listening intently to the preacher’s voice.

When asked if he had dropped the sulfur, he answered, “No, Jack, I threw it into the watering trough, and I’m converted to God!”

Jack dropped to the ground and whispered to his friend, “The game’s all up! Come on!” And they fled across the field.

Ben, while waiting for the best time to interrupt the service, was obliged to listen to the words being spoken inside. God used what he heard to waken him to the reality of eternity. It became so real to him as he sat there on the rooftop that he trembled. Throwing away his bucket, he listened carefully to the gospel. He knew he needed a Saviour, and he received God’s Word and was saved then and there.

“As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).

Three Weeks To Live
“The doctor says I have only three weeks to live,” said a tall, thin young woman about twenty years old.
“I suppose you are thinking a great deal of where you are going after death?” said her visitor.
“Oh, no! I try not to think of that at all! I’ve enjoyed life, and it’s no use my thinking of anything else now. Besides, no less than five people have been here to see me.
“Each one of them has told me that I must prepare for heaven by being good. I can’t do that, and I don’t even want to try. Anyway, I have only three weeks to live, and that isn’t enough time to do all that they tell me, so why should I make myself unhappy with the thought of it now?”
“My dear girl! I’ve only fifteen minutes before I have to leave, but I assure you that in that fifteen minutes you can be made fit for the presence of God.”
“Excuse me! I don’t mean to be rude, but I can’t help laughing at the idea of me-me-being fit to meet God in fifteen minutes!”
“Let me show you what God says in His book, the Bible. Listen: ‘But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved).’ Aren’t you ‘dead in sins’?”
“Yes, I know I am.”
“Then hear what God says: ‘For His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins.’ You say that is you. Don’t you see that God loves you just as you are? It is true you cannot make yourself good-not in thirty years, much less in three weeks. “But God-He meets you with His great love just where you are.”
As the knowledge of God’s love reached her heart, this young woman, apparently so careless about eternal things, burst into tears.
“Oh, why didn’t the others tell me this?” she exclaimed. “To think of God loving me!”
Have you believed this great love of God?
“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).
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10).
