How the mocker died in thirty days



An evangelist was holding revival services in Whittier, Cal. A young man came forward and knelt at the altar seeking pardon. For some reason he failed to obtain the gift, and during the altar service he arose deliberately and without any given reason took his seat in the rear of the church. During the progress of the revival this young man came to the meetings a number of times, but instead of continuing his seeking, he became indifferent and finally went so far as to laugh and make sport during the service. One evening while this was going on, the evangelist spoke to him and said "Young man, I expect to hear of your death inside of thirty days." Just about the time the thirty days had expired, while the young man was intoxicated, an automobile ran over him and killed him. "He that being often reproved, hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed and that without remedy."
