"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
I recently had seen the video testimony of a man who is a tribal chieftain living on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan on Walid Shoebat's website. This man said that Osama Bin Laden had recently been in the habit of riding a horse to nearby mosques and preaching about jihad against the US and Israel. Were those same men in the mosques be allowed to hear this man, Osama, preach after the grave, they would hear a much different message.
It is clear that no one can determine the ultimate fate of another who has died. We simply cannot see like the Almighty sees. Yet, men die as they lived for the most part. If you held to the tenets of a false ideology or religion it is doubtful that you would call on the true means of salvation in the last few minutes of your life. Also, the fate of those who die without Jesus Christ is very clear! They will be held temporarily in a pre-trial confinement facility called hell and after a divine appointment at the Great White Throne Judgement, with Jesus Himself on the throne, they will be tossed into an eternal lake of fire. Yes! It will be the one with those nail scarred hands that you will have to give an account to if you die without God's only means of redemption since all judgment is committed to the Son (see John 5:22 & 27). What are you going to say to Him who sits on the throne of creation if you have spurned and rejected the free gift offered to you by his atoning death? At any rate, what are the odds that Osama Bin Laden repented of his sins and called on Jesus Christ to save him in those last few seconds of the fire fight that took place early on the 2nd of May in Pakistan? It is certain that he would be preaching a different message if he were able to speak to us about his experience without the blood covering of Jesus after death. I wonder what he would share?
I am sure that he, too, would attest to Christ being the only means of salvation. Who else has done what Jesus has? Who has healed the leper, made the lame to walk, caused the deaf to hear, and the blind to see? Who else has stood at the funeral bier of a dead son or daughter and brought them back to life, or stood at the grave of a friend dead four days and brought him back with the simple words, "Lazarus, come forth!"? Who else was dead Himself and arose four days later in fulfillment of prophecies made up to 1000 years before His birth as a man? Who else has been the subject of so much scrutiny that has caused his death and resurrection to be studied and attested to by even the most hostile witnesses of His day through today? Simply put, there are 39 secular accounts of Christ's death and resurrection outside of the pages of the Bible. Also, there are scores of accounts of His miracle working power--so who in all of history is like Him? That is why Osama would come back attesting to the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
Osama would also proclaim that he had lived a lie and followed demonic delusions aimed to keep men in the darkness about Messiah Jesus. He would tell all men that there are not 72 virgins waiting for cowards who blow up buildings while killing and maiming the innocent. His testimony would tell of mocking demons laughing and taunting those whom they have helped to willingly remain blind to the true source of life eternal while carrying out the bidding of the fallen cherub, Satan. His message would mention that Satan is a very real fallen angel and not an impersonal country like America or Israel. He would tell of Satan's hate for humanity and his attempts to continually rob the world of peace while offering many hellish alternatives to men wanting to reject the cross.
Speaking of Israel, Osama would affirm the truth that the covenant land currently in possession of the Jews belongs to them and that all efforts to bring an immediate peace should be followed while assuring that Israel should control Jerusalem and much more covenant land than they currently possess. I could see him before the UN now addressing the sham of a peace process currently underway and the rejection of any other state on the land that God promised to Israel. He would no longer advocate the genocide of the Jews. He would be a preacher of true righteousness found only in Jehovah T'sidkenu--the LORD our Righteousness. Furthermore, he would call for an immediate clearing of any structure on the Temple Mount. You see, he would understand that God keeps His promises and that the greatest promise for our generation is the return of Jesus to that very spot some day, so Osama would be one of many witnesses that the city of Jerusalem is the city of the Great King, the Son of David, the Son of God--Yeshua Ha'Mashiyach.
Of the many other things that this man would relate would be a sincere and heart felt apology to the families and friends of those whose deaths he caused. He would be like Zacchaeus and spend his fortune paying restitution to those affected by his murderous acts of terrorism. This man would become one of the greatest voices for true peace in the world and the center of his message of peace would be the peace with God that mankind can have if they accept the cross of Christ. He would affirm that a man's choices here on earth have eternal consequences and that the wrong choices lead to certain destruction apart from God. Oh! How this man would preach Jesus! If only he could be heard today!
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
