There was preacher who was driving home one night with his wife and two daughters in the car.
It was dark, raining and intensely so and the pastor could hardly see past his headlights.
On the way he had to drive over a huge bridge.
There were posted signs “DO NOT PICK UP HITCH-HIKERS.”
By the base of the bridge, there was an institution for the criminally insane the sign warned that sometimes people would escape from it and try to catch a ride and murder you.
On this night, as the pastor slowly approached the bridge, a man suddenly appeared in the headlights.
He was soaked, standing in the middle of the road, frantically waving his shirt over his head and screaming like a mad man.
The preacher’s wife cautioned her husband, “Oh please don’t stop, try to drive around him!”
Car was too close, the man was unavoidable, except to stop or kill him.
As soon as the Pastor stopped, the man slapped his hand down on the hood of the car and continued screaming, at the top of his lungs, unabated.
The preacher looked over at his wife and said to lock the door after him and not to unlock it until he returned.
His family understandably perturbed and crying, pleaded with him not to get out of the car.
He opened the door and stepped outside…
He was immediately soaked from the rain.
As he approached the the man, all of a sudden he could make out what the man was screaming,
“THE BRIDGE IS OUT! THE BRIDGE IS OUT! A BUS LOAD OF KIDS JUST WENT OVER!”
As these words registered in the pastor’s mind, he looked back in the car and his eyes met the eyes of his wife and of his two daughters.
He wrapped his arm around the man and wept in gratitude.
The preacher stood there with the man for the next half-hour in the middle of the road, waving his jacket above his head screaming to warn other commuters.
Stop “THE BRIDGE IS OUT! THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”
For a lost and a dying world,
“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”
For a people heading to a Christless Eternity,
“THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”
Where are the men who will stand in the middle of the road at risk of their own lives for the sake of their family, friends, neighbors, complete strangers and even their enemies and look like a lunatic and scream “the bridge is out” and forbid people to perish in eternal Hell fire?
HELL HAS OPENED IT’S MOUTH WIDE AND MANY ARE SPEEDING INTO IT.
Where are those who will stand in the gap, on the streets, the highways and the byways to forbid multitudes to go to Hell with the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, to warn others from going to such a horrible place?
Please Repent of your own willful Sins NOW & SPREAD THE GOSPEL TODAY.
Remember JESUS Loves the world and wants nothing, absolutely nothing more than that we be saved . …..
If you can, please share this message to all your friends and enemies, if any, both Saved and unsaved.
THE BRIDGE IS OUT!
And Time is Running Out.
