Terrible And Awful Death Of An Atheist, Sir Francis Newport. by Tb222(m): 1:17pm On Sep 06, 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.

you people should leave atheists alone, face your religion and rest. People, be it atheists, Muslim, Christian, etc have died horrible death. Is the man the only the atheist that have died? Did other atheists died the same way? We have rich Muslims, Christians, atheists. We have poor Muslims, Christians, atheists. So, you people should use comon sense.

Please kindly watch and share this video below, but let me include this messages from the Lord.

This message is for brothers and sisters in Christ and those who are yet to give or offer their life to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Brothers and sisters, you can not afford to call yourself a child of God and be engaged in hidden sins, or be lukewarm or unfruitful to His Kingdom, we have to fear the Lord and obey His Word with all sincerity and diligence. For He says in His word in the Book of Phillipians 2:12 " Wherefore my beloved as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation in fear and trembling."

To my brothers and sisters who haven't accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour, He wants to be your friend, and Saviour, don't say you don't sin or have never sinned, for no one is righteous before God, it says in Romans 3:23 "All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God."

So I want you to Go down on your knees and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour, tell Him to forgive you of all your sins, don't be ashamed because He knows them already, confess ot all and tell Him to come be your partner, Lord and friend, promise Him you will never go back to them again, do it now!don't delay because a second delayed might be a second too late. 1 John 1:9 " If we confess our sins,He is faithful and Just to forgive us our sins,and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
So brothers and sisters I will be praying for you all, and make sure you watch the video link below and share the link with everybody as much as possible, God Almighty in His infinite mercies be with you, Amen.
