Steve Job’s Last Words: Death Bed Conversion?

by Steve Ray on October 31, 2011

Was it a death bed conversion? Did he get a glimpse into eternity? Were the curtains of heaven pulled back before his death? What do you think?

According to Job’s biological sister, we are told of his final words before death:

“Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them,” she recalled. “Steve’s final words were, Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.”

There is hope for everyone who wants heaven!

So after of a life of mis-treating, demeaning and disrespecting employees, using child sweat shops in Asia to make his products, and behaving like a regular all-around jerk without a smidgin of deference to religion, why exactly would Steve Jobs get a direct route to heaven and no purgatory?

“Oh wow Oh wow Oh wow” might actually be indicative of where he was really headed. Or it just might be the ranting of a man whose mind is befogged with low oxygen level just before demise.

I don’t mean to be heartless, but really…..this guy didn’t give two hoots about his neighbor when he was alive, so my sympathy for him is quite muted. He was NOT a man whose behavior should be emulated.

‘Oh wow’, does not mean that he did not go to purgatory. It simply means he saw Jesus who comes to judge all at the end of life.

Compare that to the way Stalin’s daughter Svetlana described her father’s last moment. Stalin lay unconcious but he kept saying ‘the wolves are after me’. Finally, he suddenly opened his eyes, sat up in bed, shook his fist at the ceiling and then collapsed back down and died. He obviously would rather be chased by wolves for all eternity than embrace Jesus and be forgiven
.
If Steve Jobs embraced Jesus rather than reject him as Stalin did, then we need to pray for Steve, and offer up our suffering for his ultimate release from purgatory.

CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21′And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.’)

To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.

The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the “sinner’s prayer.” Saying the “sinner’s prayer” is not calling on the name of the Lord.

Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter’s preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 …..”Brethren what shall we do?”)
Peter did not tell them to say the “sinner’s prayer.” What was Peter’s response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)

THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.

HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40

1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner’s pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.

Romans 10:13 for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.”

Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)

WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.

We are never told we are saved by “faith only.” We are never told that saying the “sinner’s prayer” is calling on the name of the Lord.

IF SAYING THE “SINNER’S PRAYER” IS NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR SALVATION? THEN WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION.

THE REQUIREMENTS!
1. Faith: John 3:16
2. Belief and baptism: Mark 16:16
3. Confession and belief: Romans 10:9-10
4. Born of water and Spirit: John 3:5
5. Grace and faith: Ephesians 2:8
6. Buried through baptism: Roman 6:4-5
7. Water baptism: 1 Peter 3:20-21
8. Baptism: Acts 22:16
9. Baptized into Christ: Galatians 3:27
10. Believe: Acts 16:30-31
11. Repentance and baptism: Acts 2:38
12. God’s mercy, water baptism, and the Holy Spirit: Titus 3:5
13. Water baptism: Colossians 2:12-13
14. Repentance: Acts 3:19

IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THESE REQUIREMENTS—THEN YOU HAVE CALLED ON THE NAME OF THE LORD!
