Even Kim Il Sung Thought About Life After Death By Reportedly Asking Billy Graham For Prayer
Pastor Foley and Dr. Foley, of Voice of the Martyrs Korea talk about how even Kim Il Sung reportedly wondered what happens after we die.
Each of us will have to ask ourselves the question, what will happen when we die. Even Communists struggle with this question when they near death. The evidence of this is seen in what Kim Il Sung did when preparing for a difficult surgery. Before his scheduled surgery, he reportedly asked Billy Graham (who was visiting North Korea) to pray for him!

One day, everyone must present themselves to God. Preparing ourselves to do this is the theme of the month of Presentation.
2 Thessalonians 1:5~12
5Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;10When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. 11Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: 12That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ
