Solomon B. Shaw was a wise recorder of life-and-death scenes. His best-known book is "Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved", originally published in 1898.
In this most touching, and spiritually rewarding, book, Shaw records the dying scenes, and the last words, of both the saved and unsaved, both famous and unknown. You will see the tremendous difference between those who are Born Again and those who have refused salvation, as they approach the hour of their death. As one physician once remarked, "Christians die well". Biblical doctrines which saints of God have believed all their lives sustain them wonderfully in the hour of their death.
Many believers report seeing angels coming to escort them to Heaven and the lights of that wondrous abode shining around them as they lay dying.
Conversely, you will realize that many unsaved go through the agonies of Hell as they approach death, some even feeling the fires of Hell and seeing demons in the room, coming to take their spirits to the Abyss.
You will also discover that the Biblical doctrine that a person cannot come to Jesus on their own, but must be drawn by the spirit -- Who gives the very desire to come to salvation -- is borne out by the testimonies of the unsaved. No one should put off the promptings of the Holy Spirit, thinking they can utter the correct words just before they die and go to Heaven. Truly, God is not mocked!
This book is wonderful, and we recommend it to all our readers.
