Todd Beamer, the Man Who Said “Let’s Roll” on Flight 93, Knew he Was Going to Heaven When he Died on 9/11. How About You?


Let’s Roll!

He is recognized as a hero for his actions aboard United Airlines Flight 93 on that fateful day of September 11, 2001. After United Airlines Flight 93 was hijacked, he and other passengers communicated with people on the ground via in-plane and cell phones, and learned that the World Trade Center had been attacked using hijacked airplanes. Trying to place a credit card call through a phone located on the back of a plane seat, he was routed to GTE supervisor Lisa Jefferson. He reported that one passenger was killed and, later, that a flight attendant had told him the pilot and co-pilot had been forced from the cockpit and may have been wounded. He was also on the phone when the plane made its turn in a southeasterly direction. He later informed Lisa Jefferson that some of the plane’s passengers were planning to “jump on” the hijackers and fly the plane into the ground before the hijackers’ plan could be followed through. Before ending the phone call, he recited The Lord’s Prayer with Jefferson, and his reported last audible words were, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll.” He and his wife taught Sunday School at their church for six years, and he is known today as a man of faith, selflessness, and courage. He was posthumously awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award in 2002. His name is Todd Beamer.

This is the “Chief of Sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, and just as Todd Beamer gave his life to Christ, may I encourage you to do the same. The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” If you want to know Jesus Christ today as your personal Saviour as Todd Beamer did, all you have to do is acknowledge and realize that you have done some bad things in your life which are called sin; you have sinned against God and so have I. In fact, I am the chief of sinners. The Bible says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Then believe on Jesus Christ for salvation, and pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will. The Bible says in Romans 10:9, “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.” Romans 10:13 states, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me the following simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith! God Bless You!
