The Awful Death Of Sir Francis Newport! by Tb222(m): 9:32pm On Sep 03, 2022
Sir Francis Newport was trained in early life to understand the great truth of the gospel, and while in early manhood it was hoped that he would become an ornament and a blessing to his family and the nation, the result was far otherwise.

He fell into company that corrupted his principles and his morals, he became an awful infidel, and a life of dissipation soon brought on a disease that was incurable.

When he felt that he must die, he threw himself on the bed, and after a brief pause, he exclaimed as follows. " Whence this war in my heart? What argument is there now to assist me against matters of fact? Do i assert that there is no Hell, while i feel one in my own bosom? Am i certain there is no after retribution, when i feel present judgement? Do i affirm my soul to be as mortal as my body, when this languishes, and that is vigorous as ever? O that anyone would restore unto me that ancient gourd of piety and innocence! Wretch that i am, whither shall i flee from this breast? What will become of me? "

An infidel companion tried to dispel his thoughts, to whom he replied; " That there is a God, I know, because I continually feel the effects of his wrath, that there is a Hell I am certain having received an earnest of my inheritance there already in my breast; that there is a natural conscience I now feel with Horror and amazement, being continually upbraided by it with my impieties, and all my iniquities, and all my sins brought to my remembrance.

Why God has marked me out for an example of His vengeance, rather than you, or any of my acquaintance, I presume is because I have been more religiously educated, and have done greater despite to the spirit of grace, O that I was to be upon the fire that never is quenched a thousand years to purchase the favour of God, and be reunited to Him again! But it is a fruitless wish. Millions and millions of years will bring no nearer to the end of my torments than one poor hour, O, eternity, eternity! Who can discover the abyss of eternity? Who can paraphrase upon the words- forever and ever? "

Lest his friends should think him insane, he said; " You imagine me melancholy, or distracted. I wish i were either; but it is part of my judgement that I am not. No; my apprehension of persons and things is more quick and vigorous than it was when I was in perfect health; and it is my curse, because I am thereby more sensible of the condition I am fallen into. Would you be informed why I am become a skeleton in three or four days? See now, then. I have despised my Maker, and denied my Redeemer. I have joined myself to the atheist and profane, and continued this course under many convictions, till my iniquity was ripe for vengeance, and the Just judgement of God overtook me when my security was the greatest, and the checks of my conscience was the least. "

As his mental distress and bodily disease were hurrying him into eternity, he was asked if he would have prayer offered on his behalf; he turned his face, and exclaimed, " Tigers and Monsters! Are ye also become devils to torment me? Would ye give me prospect of Heaven to make my hell more intolerable? "

Soon after his voice failing, and uttering a groan of inexpressible horror, he cried out, " OH THE INSUFFERABLE PANGS OF HELL!" and died at once , dropping into the very Hell which God gave him such an awful earnest, to be a constant warning to multitudes of careless sinners.-The contrast.

Psalm 14;1 " The fool saith in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.


The saddest
road to Hell is the one
that runs under the
pulpit, past the Bible,
and through the
Middle of warnings
and invitations.

Quit the fear-mongering.

Then I said, "Angel, the people are consumed by sin"
"And we no longer love His laws"
A generation has all but forgotten 'bout him
Rebels without a cause
The Angel told me the judgement we face is red
Only if we choose to believe it
Jah love us all too much to ever let us burn in hell
They had to keep that one a secret

Then you call the Lord and His Word a lie, for it is written in His Word in the Book of Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The Word of God is true it can never lie,for it says in His Word in the Book of Psalm 12:6 "The Words of the Lord pure Words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times."

It also says in His Word in the Book of Numbers 23:19 " God is not a man, that He should lie, neither the son of man, that He should repent: Hath He said, and shall he not do it? or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good?"

It also says in His Word in the Book of Isaiah 55:11 " So shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which i please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
The Book of Psalm 138:2 " I will worship toward thy holy temple,and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy Word above all thy name."

Finally He says in His Word in the Book of Revelation 22:18-19 " For I testify unto everyman that heareth the Words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto this things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this Book:

vs 19 " And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy city, and from the the things which are written in this Book.

So my Brother or Sister, be not deceived for God is not mocked, do not let anyone deceive you with false doctrines suiting their own flesh and inordinate desires, for everyone shall be held accountable for his/her words and deeds, i pray you see the Light and I pray for the salvation of your soul, kindly go down on your knees and ask the Lord to forgive you snd have mercy on you, for He said in His Word in the Book of John 6:37 " All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
