Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved

There is a HUGE difference in the way a saved vs. an unsaved person dies and enters eternity!

Unfortunately, thanks ? to ‘modern medicine’, dying individuals today are usually so drugged with narcotics and other pain relievers that they are unconscious at the time of death. So we no longer hear the death bed stories which were observed in the past.

But, fortunately, there are collections of stories of folks who died before the advent of ‘modern medicine’. I recently discovered one such book on the web in the form of a free E-book and have been reading many of the stories. It is a classic. It was written by Solomon Benjamin Shaw in 1898 and is titled ‘Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved.

This book includes hundreds of death bed testimonies including those of great saints such as John Wesley, John Bunyan, D.L. Moody, Frances Ridley Havergal and great sinners such as Thomas Paine, Voltaire, David Hume, Edward Gibbon and others.

I think you will find this most instructive and convicting. You will definitely want to put this into your bookmarks. HERE’S THE LINK
