Hope this is a blessing to you as much as it was to me. If you don't have this confidence give it a try.

After living a Christian life, my time on earth came to an end. The first
thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought
to be a courthouse. 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 lawyer, a kind and gentle
looking man whose appearance seemed familiar to me.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the judge in full flowing
robe. 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 ****." 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 lawyer, 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 representative who sat there silently not offering any
form of defense at all. I knew 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 had done?

Satan finished with a fury and said, "This man belongs in ****, 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 lawyer 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 has
sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And yes, the wage 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 replied, "There is nothing else that needs
to be done. I've done it all."
