A young father and son walked near our Bible table at the beach. The child was perhaps 3-years-old. The father was covered with tattoos and body piercings. Both of them had matching hair–purple mohawks!
I smiled and said, “Hello. This must be your son.”
He said, “Yes it is.”
I picked up one of our little tracts entitled, Promises for Fathers. “Here is something that might interest you. It’s a pamphlet full of promises from God to fathers like you.”
He immediately let out a loud scream, as if terrified! “Noooo!” He ran away screaming at the top of his lungs, pulling his little son behind him.
We stood dumbfounded, watching him scream as he ran. Our group immediately went into prayer, “Lord God, He is afraid of You. Or perhaps there are demons indwelling him who are afraid. We plead the blood of Jesus over this man. Bring him to Jesus. Protect his son from the evil one. Save them in Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
