From now theend begins website August 27, 2011:

Does Steve Jobs Have An App For What Comes After This Life?

Steve Jobs is preparing for what comes next

“And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, [and] be merry. But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?” Luke 12:19,20

Steve Jobs is a hard-working man, that’s certainly a fact. For the last 30 years, having almost single-handedly created the personal computer revolution, has captured the imagination of the entire world with the iPod, iPhone, and now the iPad. Along the way he has enriched himself with nearly $9 billion dollars in personal wealth. But Steve Jobs, a Buddhist, has a problem. He is dying.

One day soon, Steve Jobs will look his last on the things of this life, and he will close his eyes in death. His eternal soul will leave the shell of his human body, and he will stand before the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give an account for his life. When he is asked what he did with his life, none of his earthly accomplishments will be asked about. The fortune and acclaim he has amassed here on earth will mean nothing. He will look to Buddha for guidance on what to say, but Buddha will be no where to be found. He alone will stand before God. God will only be interested in the answer to one, single questions – “what did YOU do with My Son?”

What will Mr. Jobs answer back?

Unless something changes soon, he will have to answer God that he rejected His Son and His free gift of salvation. He will have to say that he put his trust in Buddha, in his hard work, in his accomplishments. He will be forced to acknowledge that he rejected Jesus Christ in favor of worldly gain. He will have no one to pay for his sins but himself. The price of that payment is an eternity spent in a literal, burning, fiery Hell created for the Devil and his angels.

But Steve Jobs is not dead yet, and he still has time to change the course he is on, and to accept and receive Jesus Christ as his Saviour. Won’t you pray that he will realize that, instead of being rich, that he really is poor and naked and blind, and in desperate need of the Promised One of Israel?

You Can Be Saved–Right Now. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 10: 9-10


From Me: I hope he at least considered this truth as Solomon did?

But WHEN did Steve Jobs die??

Did Apple's board or directors delay the announcement?

Was he gone before yesterday's iPhone 4S introduction?

Big questions we should have answered.

This man was a genius and worth billions yet he would have traded it all to any of us for our good health. Be thankful if you have that. You may be broke and struggling but you are richer than
Him. He was a good man.

My deepest sympathy to the Jobs family. I don't think that ANYONE who is an Apple addict will EVER forget him. He was one of a kind. I hope that the person "filling" his shoes will be half as good as Steve was. Steve is now pain free and in a better place for sure. Just remember all the good times to help ease the pain.
