“I Am Abandoned by God”

200px-KJV-King-James-Version-Bible-first-edition-title-page-1611The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Isaiah 40:8

Men may scorn the Word of God but there is coming a day when every person will stand before God. {Revelation 20:11-14}

The famed atheist Voltaire said, “”One hundred years from my day there will not be a Bible in the earth except one that is looked upon by an antiquarian curiosity seeker.”

He once said about Jesus Christ, “Curse the wretch”

Voltaire was mistaken; After his death his house in Paris was used by the British Bible Society and later on by the French Bible Society.

Voltaire, on his deathbed said; “I am abandoned by God and man. I will give you half of what I am worth, if you will give me six months’ life.”

His doctor replied

“Sir, you cannot live six weeks.”

Voltaire replied, “Then I shall go to hell, and you will go with me.”

He cried out, “I am abandoned by God and man! I shall go to hell! O Christ! O Jesus Christ!”

Apparently not long after the preceding declarations Voltaire breathed his last.

The nurse who attended Voltaire on his death bed said

“For all the wealth in Europe I would not see another infidel die.”

How many people will joke about eternity and meeting God and then go out into a Christ-less eternity and in the words of Voltaire be “abandoned by God”?
