Through strategic intercession we can access the sub-consciousness, the heart, the will and also the consciousness!
March 6 2011
I received the words "Urgent" last night, then the words: "Pray for the Lost !", then, after this the words: "Pray the Lord of the Harvest Send Workers into The Harvest Field"
Today, when I woke up to pray, the Lord spoke to me "I told you to share !"
Then I remembered the prophecy I got last night. As I had just finished a re-edit of a teaching I wrote about a year ago, about how to save anyone, I believe the interpretation is to send this message again, as well as to spend more time interceding for the world.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Mat 9:37,38)
How to Save Anyone !
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. (Dan 12:3)
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30)
Because no-one is greater than God, the Word of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Spirit, it is actually possible to save Anyone !
The key to getting anyone saved is to understand that God has full authority over the persons life, and as a believer, you have authority to execute this authority!
It is not important if the person does not respond to the gospel message, because God is able to soften or harden their hearts, they key to this is proverbs 21:1 and the example of how God worked through Pharaoh to release the Israelites from Egypt.
“No one can come to Me unless the Father draws them”
“With cords of lovingkindness I have drawn you”
It should be understood from this scripture that the power of God is what is needed to change peoples lives. Many Christians read this scripture and presume that everything is up to God to save someone, that if it is Gods plan for someone to be saved, then God calls them to be saved.
However, it should be understood, that we are the vessels through which God brings about His plans, through two things: prayer and obedience.
In light of this scripture the Christians needs to understand that they need to pray through the scripture unto salvation, that is, they need to pray that God draws the unbeliever, and not to leave it up to God !
The tactic of praying scripture through is VERY powerful, for Gods Word shall not return to Him void, but it shall accomplish that for which it was sent.
God calls all people, however, strategically praying for God to draw someone is more powerful than just the calling of God for them to be saved.
This is what this teaching is about, taking the calling of salvation to a new level – through this tactic you can just about guarantee anyones salvation.
There are exceptions to this, as the Bible prophesies that not everyone will be saved, but the plan of God is that all come to repentance, and so, if you focus your prayers on an person, in the right way, you can guarantee their salvation, as long as you listen to God in all things, and don’t lean on your own understanding!
Section 1: Understanding the Heart
Two things are important for this message:
1> To understand the Word of God, and to trust in what God says, not on the persons arguments against the gospel
2> To understand people through the eyes of God, and through what the Holy Spirit shows you, also through the revelation of the Word of God (Jer 17 etc)
The heart is deceitful above all things, and beyond cure. Who can understand it? "I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." (Jeremiah 17:9)
People are complex, people are simple, God is complex and yet simple also, using the knowledge of God, you simply pray for the person – in power! Through strategic intercession we can access the sub-conscious, the heart, the will and also the consciousness.
“The heart of the King is in the hand of the Lord, and like streams of water He makes it flow where He wishes” – Proverbs 21:1
Take some time to meditate on this scripture, understand it, and know that, whatever their arguments against the Gospel, God is in full control of everyone !
We can see how God works out Proverbs 21:1 when God causes Pharaoh to release the Israelites:
Exodus 7:3-4 – Pharaohs heart hardened
But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt, he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites.
Exodus 7:13-14 – Pharaohs heart hardened
Yet Pharaoh's heart became hard and he would not listen to them, just as the LORD had said. Then the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is unyielding; he refuses to let the people go.
Exodus 8:8-10 – Pharaohs heart softened
Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Pray to the LORD to take the frogs away from me and my people, and I will let your people go to offer sacrifices to the LORD."
Moses said to Pharaoh, "I leave to you the honor of setting the time for me to pray for you and your officials and your people that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs, except for those that remain in the Nile." "Tomorrow," Pharaoh said. Moses replied, "It will be as you say, so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God.
Exodus 8:15 – Pharaohs heart hardened
But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said.
Exodus 12:31-32 – Pharaohs heart softened
During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the LORD as you have requested. Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me."
Exodus 14:1-5 – Pharaohs heart hardened
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon. Pharaoh will think, 'The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.' And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD." So the Israelites did this.
As you can see from these scriptures, God softens Pharaohs heart, then hardens it !
Likewise, God is more than able to soften the hearts of those who reject the Gospel !
The key thing is here, that God works in such a way as to leave Pharaoh believing he is in control of everything, but Pharaoh is never in control, God is in control of everything !
“The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.”
“for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose”
God works in heart of the Christian to will to do His will. It is God who works in the heart of the believer to make them will to do His will. In the same way God can work in the unbelievers heart to will to do His will, this is a very powerful prayer tactic.
2. Tactics for praying for the unbeliever
Pray what you know:
Ask God what His will is for the unbeliever, then pray it through, the Word of God says that Gods will is for them to be saved, so this is a good start, pray for the Rhema, then pray that through for the unbeliever.
1 Pray for saving faith
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
2 Pray for them to understand the Gospel
The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." (Luke 4:17-19)
3 Pray God gives them a hunger and thirst for righteousness
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Matthew 5:6)
4 Pray God convicts them of sin, righteousness and judgment
But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. (John 16:7-11)
5 Pray God drops eternity into their hearts
Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment (Hebrews 9:27)
The Bible tells you what to pray for, it is the Christians duty to pray these things through. The key to getting someone saved is making them want to be saved ! Therefore it is important to understand why unbelievers don’t want to listen to the gospel.
Why people refuse to be saved:
- They need to be convinced that what your telling them is the truth
- They feel they will be deprived of their freedom if they become a Christian
- Their perception of the Church
- They feel they need nothing else
Pray that God helps the unbeliever to ask these questions:
· What is the meaning of life ?
· What happens after I die ?
· Is there a God ? How was the Universe Created ?
· Is my daily routine fulfilling my life ?
· Is there a Hell ?
· Why did Jesus die on the Cross ?
God has put the revelation of the revelation of the Kingdom of God in the hearts of the unsaved (that is why there is no excuse), at the very least people have the ability to reason, and this itself is enough to get them to seek to find out if there is a God! Unbelievers want to be saved, and they want you to convince or persuade them. This is accomplished through prayer, intercession and wise counsel.
Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them. (Romans 2:14,15)
Christians many times fail to see the heart of the unbeliever, and so do not seek to get through to them in a powerful and effective way. The church needs to ask God to show them the point of contact or need for every person.
Strategies for getting through to the unbeliever
Seek God for understanding, or to strengthen and increase the understanding you have so that it is released in more power through intercession
- Know the authority you have in Christ (Armor of God, power of God, power of the name of Jesus, the Blood, the Word, the Holy Spirit)
- Knowledge of the Word of God, Promises of God
- The heart of God, the Burden of the Lord – this is very powerful and vital to everything, pray God increases what you already have
- Strength / Endurance / Stamina / Faith – true prayer means persistence and consistence, praying for hours and fasting for example.
“The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers” 2 Corinthians 4:4
Pray that God cuts through this blindness and opens the eyes of their hearts.
Things to pray for to get someone saved:
We have the ability to access the persons mind, will, emotions and understanding through the power of dreams, you can get through to anyone through the power of dreams.
God can give dreams and interpretations to unbelievers, resulting in their understanding being enlightened. The most formal person dreams ! In the dream state or dream world – the person can become completely different to how they appear to be in everyday life – they can become more receptive to message of the Lord – in the place of dreams is where people can turn to God without you even preaching !
Dreams to pray for – pray for dreams about hell, heaven, eternity, wisdom, Jesus, the Cross, the Resurrection, anything that will get them to understand there is more to this life, that there is a place after death, and that they need salvation!
When two full years had passed, Pharaoh (who was not a believer) had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up. He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. (Genesis 41:1-5)
Gideon arrived just as a man was telling a friend (dream given to someone who is unsaved) his dream. "I had a dream," he was saying. "A round loaf of barley bread came tumbling into the Midianite camp. It struck the tent with such force that the tent overturned and collapsed." His friend responded, "This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands." (Judges 7:13,14)
Pray for Angel visitations for people, this is a very powerful tactic. Pray for the Lord to send Angels to minister the Gospel of Salvation to their hearts. The Angels will speak directly to their hearts and cut through their consciousness, thus making their conscious receptive to the ministry of the Gospel, and creating in them a natural hunger and understanding for and of the Kingdom of God.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:14)
(Angels minister to those who are saved, and to those who are going to be saved.)
At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius (who was not born-again) , a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, "Cornelius!"
Cornelius stared at him in fear. "What is it, Lord?" he asked.
The angel answered, "Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. 5Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. 6He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea." (Acts 10:1-6)
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13:2)
Pray God imparts revelation and understanding to the person.
Many people don’t turn to God because of pre-conceived misconceptions of who God is. Pray God gives them wisdom and understanding. This will result in the person becoming interested in the things of the Kingdom, and seeking to know more about who God is, or ‘if there is a God’.
That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws. And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever. (Daniel 4:33,34)
Pray that God sends divine appointments, seasoned workers of the Gospel to speak to them at the right place at the right time.
In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, "Ananias!" "Yes, Lord," he answered. The Lord told him, "Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight." (Acts 9:10,11)
Burden of the Lord:
Pray God puts a burden on their hearts to be saved, they may not rationalize this, but they will all of a sudden want to become born-again – this is a very powerful prayer tactic!
Pray the Holy Spirit draws them to God, giving them a burden to become born-again!
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:44)
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:"I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. (Jeremiah 31:3)
Presence of the Holy Spirit:
Pray for God to anoint the person. Although many unsaved people may seem strong outwardly, they are unable to be strong, because they do not know the Lord, they are dead without Christ, and their ‘strength’ or ‘wisdom’ is taking them to hell. The anointing can change them in an instant, giving them confidence, trust, peace, understanding, and wisdom. The power of God can make the timid person bold, and the confident person helpless. People need to be changed if they are going to become disciples and not just converts.
As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul's heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day. When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in their prophesying. When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, "What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?" (1 Samuel 10:9-11)
To guarantee someone’s salvation, you will need to pray – persistently ! This means taking the time to intercede for someone, it is one thing to understand what to do, but another to apply it!
Taking time to intercede for hours can result in a person being saved for an eternity ! Persistent, continuous, unceasing prayer along with fasting for a certain number of days can be more effective than a lifetime of ‘mediocre’ praying.
Tactics for praying:
Pray as the Lord leads you to, fasting is not necessarily required, but can be powerful and very effective. Every interscessor should fast regularly.
1. Fast for the person and pray for at least 3 hours just for that person
2. Share this teaching with someone else and get them to pray the same things as yourself, also get them to fast
3. If you can, get a whole prayer group to intercede for one person using this teaching, then you can bring people into the kingdom one by one, and God will increase your authority to save 10’s, 100’s and 1000’s using this tactic – it is possible to take a whole town, island or country if you obey Jesus !
4. Claim the blood of Jesus over their salvation
5. Claim the anointing of God for them
6. Claim Angelic protection
7. Set aside at least ½ hour a day to pray for this person, get someone else to do the same also
8. Ask God to speak to you as you pray, the right prayer can be more powerful than hours or even days of praying!
9. Be specific in your prayers, pray for a variety of different things for them
10. When the person starts to respond to the gospel more, invite them to a church or share the gospel with them, but pray also for wisdom, for the right timing and the right scriptures etc
11. Sometimes it is wiser not to invite the person to church or share too much teaching, as people may resent this, when God is working out a more powerful work in their lives, to give them a greater hunger to be saved – then share !
12. Claim the promises of God !
13. Claim their salvation – spend some time interceding, and some time claiming –claiming is VERY powerful !
Also have some resources like tracts – good tracts, tracts about proof of God, or about Hell (those who have visited there) can be very effective.
Avoid testimonies – unless the Lord is telling you, testimonies can often turn people away from the gospel, as people don’t usually want to know about how much a ‘drug-addict’ someone used to be etc - share the GOSPEL – the message of Christ, Salivation etc.
Understanding people is very important when praying for them.
Pray God gives you understanding about people, what you see on the surface is not the fullness of who the person is, here are some scriptures about how Gods plan for people, and about how God sees people:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5,6)
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. (Proverbs 20:5)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:6-8)
As the heavens are high and the earth is deep, so the hearts of kings are unsearchable. (Proverbs 25:3)
The heart is deceitful above all things, and beyond cure. Who can understand it? "I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." (Jeremiah 17:9)
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:26)
Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,”
Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds? (Proverbs 24:11,12)
3. Resources to help share the gospel:
Here are three messages that you can share with the lost, please print off and share.
1. Mathematical proof of God
2. A Divine Revelation of Hell – Mary K Baxter
3. A simple gospel message, prayer of salvation etc
Mathematical proof of God !
This is one of the simplest and most powerful proofs of God there is – no one with any ability to reason could say there isn’t a God after reading this !
A simple equation:
2% + 2% = 4%
2% of Carbon + 2% of Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
1% of Carbon + 1% of Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide
0% of Carbon + 0% Oxygen = Nothing
So what does this mean ?
This means, that according to simple maths, 1 + 1 = 2, ergo 1% + 1% = 2%
Forgetting ‘evolution’ arguments for now, How did the Universe begin ?
How could matter have been created ?
If 1% of matter (or even anti-matter, or dark matter or any substance or sound wave or light wave or anything) + 1% of something else could possibly in a 10 to the power of infinity chance create a ‘Big Bang’, which then in turn would create in astronomically impossible odds the world, the galaxies and the solar systems, then it must be understood that:
0% of matter (sound waves, light waves or anything) + 0% of anything = Nothing
ABSOLUTE 0% of ANYTHING
There is no point of origin for the creation of Anything – it is scientifically impossible to create anything (to cause the Big Bang) from Nothing !
It is mathematically impossible to create 1+% from 0%+0%
ACCORDING TO EVERY SCIENTIFIC LAW KNOWN TO EVERY BEING WITH THE ABILITY TO THINK - THERE COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN A SUBSTANCE OF ANY KIND TO CREATE THE BIG BANG.
IF THERE WAS A SUBSTANCE TO CREATE THE BIG BANG – HOW WAS IT CREATED – ACCORDING TO MATHMATICS IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE 0% + 0% = 0% !
This leaves only one alternative:
A Creator ! Something, Someone outside of the laws of Science – that Created Scientific laws – A God – The most powerful Scientific Mind in the Universe !
This is absolute proof that there is a Creator
When people stand before the Judgment seat of God, all the Creator has to say to them is:
“Did you understand mathematics – even the simplest form of mathematics? Then you are without excuse ! ”
Because with this knowledge (the knowledge of what is created) it should prompt the person to genuinely seek if there is a God.
If you want to know If there is a God, please pray this prayer (You have nothing to lose by praying this prayer, except a few moments of your time, and it is wise, considering that the greatest gamble in life is whether there is a life after death or not !)
“God, I realize that the Universe is the greatest and most astounding thing in Creation, and I realize that there is every chance that it was Created, and not made by accident, so, if you are real, please show me in some way, whether through wisdom, understanding, miracle or anything. Please help me to understand how to obey you if you are truly the Creator.”
(Note: Sometimes the way of God is to work in the understanding of the person, as well as working out circumstances. Some are privileged to receive miraculous signs from God, and there are many testimonies of these things, one of the reasons God works like this is because God is trying to develop understanding for the person on a natural level
The mystery of God – the language of God is FAITH – if all God had to do was prove to everyone through conventional means that He is the Creator – there would be absolutely no need for faith. The Lord has given everyone on the planet everything they need to at least have some level of faith: The Creation, Conscience, Emotion, Life, Understanding, and much more.)
Based on all the evidence, which is beyond overwhelming, for God, it would be unwise not to seek for some answers about who God is and the meaning of life !
A DIVINE REVELATION OF HELL
Please print off this message and share with someone who isn’t saved yet !
Mary Kathryn Baxter
Is there a Hell ?What is Hell like ?This women was taken to hell and to heaven, read to find out what hell is really like.
'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'- Acts 2:17-21
In March 1976 while I was praying at home, I had a visit from the Lord Jesus Christ. I had been praying in the Spirit for days when all at once I felt the very presence of God. His power and His glory filled the house. A brilliant light illuminated the room where I was praying, and a sweet and wonderful feeling came over me. Lights flowed in billows, rolling and folding into one another and rolling over and out of each other. It was a spectacular sight! And then the voice of the Lord began to speak to me. He said, "I am Jesus Christ, your Lord, and I wish to give you a revelation to prepare the saints for My return and to turn many to righteousness. The powers of darkness are real and My judgments are true.
My child, I will take you into hell by My Spirit, and I will show you many things which I want the world to know. I will appear to you many times; I will take your spirit out of your body and will actually take you into hell. I want you to write a book and tell of the visions and of all the things I reveal to you. You and I will walk through hell together. Make a record of these things which were and are and are to come. My words are true, faithful and trustworthy. I Am That I Am, and there is none beside Me."
"Dear Lord," I cried out, "What do You want me to do?" My whole being wanted to cry out to Jesus, to acknowledge His presence. The best I can describe it is to say love came over me. It was the most beautiful, peaceful, joyful, powerful love I have ever felt. God's praises began to flow from me. All at once I wanted to give Him my whole life to be used by Him, to help save people from their sin. I knew, by His Spirit, that it actually was Jesus the Son of God who was there in the room with me. I cannot find words to express His divine presence. But I know that I know it was the Lord.
"Behold, My child,” Jesus said, "I am going to take you by My Spirit into hell so that you may be able to make a record of the reality of it, to tell the whole earth that hell is real, and to bring the lost out of darkness and into the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ."
Instantly, my soul was taken out of my body. I went with Jesus up out of my room and into the sky. I knew all that was going on about me. I saw my husband and children asleep in our home below. It was as though I had died and my body was left behind on the bed while my spirit was going with Jesus up through the top of the house. It seemed as though the whole roof was rolled back, and I could see my family asleep in their beds.
I felt the touch of Jesus as He said, "Fear not. They will be safe." He knew my thoughts. I will try to the best of my ability to tell you step-by-step what I saw and felt. Some of the things I did not understand. The Lord Jesus told me the meaning of most of them, but some things He did not tell me.
I knew then, and I know now, that these things were really happening and only God could have shown them to me. Praise His holy name. People, believe me, hell is real. I was taken there by the Spirit many times during the preparation of this report. Soon we were high into the heavens. I turned and looked at Jesus. He was full of glory and power, and such peace flowed from Him.
He took my hand and said, "I love you. Fear not, for I am with you."
At that, we began to go even higher into the sky, and now I could see the earth below. Protruding out of the earth and scattered about in many places were funnels spinning around to a center point and then turning back again. These moved high above the earth and looked like a giant, dirty type of slinky that moved continuously. They were coming up from all over the earth.
"What are these?" I asked the Lord Jesus as we came near to one.
"These are the gateways to hell," He said. "We will go into hell through one of them."
Immediately, we entered one of the funnels. Inside, it looked like a tunnel, spinning around and around and back again like a top. A deep darkness descended on us, and with the darkness came a smell so horrible it took my breath away. Along the sides of this tunnel were living forms embedded in the walls. Dark gray in color, the forms moved and cried out to us as we passed. I knew without being told that they were evil. The forms could move but were still attached to the walls. A horrible smell came from them, and they screeched at us with the most awful cries. I felt an invisible, evil force moving inside the tunnels.
At times in the darkness, I could make out the forms. A dirty fog covered most of them. "Lord, what are these?" I asked as I held on tightly to Jesus' hand.
He said, "These are evil spirits ready to be spewed out on the earth when Satan gives the orders. "
As we were going down inside the tunnel, the evil forms laughed and called out to us. They tried to touch us, but could not because of the power of Jesus. The very air was polluted and dirty, and only the presence of Jesus kept me from screaming at the sheer horror. Oh, yes, I had all my senses-I could hear, smell, see, feel and even taste the evil in this place. If anything, my senses had become more sensitive, and the odor and filth almost made me sick.
Screams filled the air as we came near the base of the tunnel. Piercing cries came up the dark tunnel to meet us. Sounds of all sorts filled the air. I could feel fear, death and sin all around me. The worst odor I have ever smelled filled the air. It was the smell of decaying flesh, and it seemed to be coming from every direction. Never on earth had I felt such evil or heard such cries of despair. Soon I would find that these were the cries of the dead and that hell was filled with their wails.
I felt a gust of evil wind and a small suction force ahead of us. Lights like lightening or strobe flashes penetrated the black darkness and threw gray shadows on the walls. I could barely make out the form of something in front of me. I recoiled in shock when I realized that it was a large snake moving along ahead of us. As I continued to look, I saw those ugly snakes were slithering about everywhere.
Jesus said to me, "We will soon enter the left leg of hell. Ahead you will see great sorrow, pathetic sadness and indescribable horror. Stay close to Me, and I will give you strength and protection as we go through hell.
"The things you are about to see are a warning," He said. "The book you write will save many souls from hell. What you are seeing is real. Fear not, for I will be with you."
At long last, the Lord Jesus and I were at the bottom of the tunnel. We stepped out into hell. I will try to the best of my ability to tell you what I saw, and I will tell it in the order God gave it to me. Ahead of us, as far as I could see, were flying objects darting here and there. Groaning sounds and pitiful cries filled the air. Up ahead I saw a dim light, and we began walking toward it. The path was a dry, powdery dirt. We were soon at the entrance to a small dark tunnel. Some things I cannot put on paper; they were too awful to describe. The fear in hell could be tasted, and I knew if I had not been with Jesus I would not make it back. In the writing of this, some of the things I saw I do not understand, but the Lord knows all things, and He helped me understand most of what I saw. Let me warn you-don't go to that place. It is a horrid place of torments, excruciating pain and eternal sorrow. Your soul will always be alive. The soul lives forever. It is the real you, and your soul will go to either heaven or hell.
To those of you who think that hell is here on earth-well, you are right-it is! Hell is in the center of the earth, and there are souls in torment there night and day. There are no parties in hell. No love. No compassion. No rest. Only a place of sorrow beyond your belief.
The Left Leg of Hell
A horrible odor filled the air. Jesus said to me, "In the left leg of hell are many pits. This tunnel branches off into other parts of hell, but we will spend some time in the left leg first.
"These things you are about to see will always be with you. The world must know about the reality of hell. Many sinners and even some of My people do not believe that hell is real. You have been chosen by Me to reveal these truths to them. Everything I will show you about hell and all the other things I will show you are true."
Jesus had shown Himself to me in the form of a bright light, brighter than the sun. The form of a man was in the center of that light. Sometimes I saw Jesus as a man, but at other times He was in the form of a spirit.
He spoke again, "Child, when I speak, the Father has spoken. The Father and I are one. Remember to love above all else and to forgive one another. Come now, follow Me."
As we walked, evil spirits fled from the presence of the Lord. "O God, O God," I cried. "What is next?"
As I said previously, I had all my senses in hell. All those in hell have all their senses. Mine were working now in full force. Fear was on every side, and inexpressible dangers lurked everywhere. Each step I took was more horrible than the one before. There were doorways about the size of small windows, opening and shutting very fast at the top of the tunnel. Screams filled the air as many evil creatures flew by us, up and out of the gateways of hell. Soon we were at the end of the tunnel. I was trembling with fright because of the danger and fear around us.
I was so thankful for the protection of Jesus. I thank God for His almighty power to protect us, even in the pits of hell. Even with that protecting shield, I kept thinking, Not my will, Father, but Yours be done. I looked at my body. For the first time I noticed that I was in a spirit form, and my form was in the shape of myself. I wondered what was next. Jesus and I stepped from the tunnel onto a path with wide swaths of land on each side of it. There were pits of fire everywhere as far as the eye could see. The pits were four feet across and three feet deep and shaped like a bowl.
Jesus said, "There are many pits like this in the left leg of hell. Come, I will show you some of them. "
I stood beside Jesus on the path and looked into one of the pits. Brimstone was embedded in the side of the pit and glowed red like hot coals of fire. In the center of the pit was a lost soul who had died and gone to hell. Fire began at the bottom of the pit, swept upward and clothed the lost soul in flames. In a moment the fire would die down to embers, then with a rushing sound would sweep back over the tormented soul in the pit. I looked and saw that the lost soul in the pit was caged inside a skeleton form. "My Lord," I cried at the sight, "Can't you let them out?"
How awful was the sight! I thought, This could be me. I said, "Lord, how sad it is to see and know that a living soul is in there."
I heard a cry from the center of the first pit. I saw a soul in the form of a skeleton, crying, "Jesus, have mercy!"
"O, Lord!" I said. It was the voice of a woman. I looked at her and wanted to pull her out of the fire. The sight of her broke my heart.
The skeleton form of a woman with a dirty-grey mist inside was talking to Jesus. In shock, I listened to her. Decayed flesh hung by shreds from her bones, and, as it burned, it fell off into the bottom of the pit. Where her eyes had once been were now only empty sockets. She had no hair. The fire started at her feet in small flames and grew as it climbed up and over her body. The woman seemed to be constantly burning, even when the flames were only embers. From deep down inside her came cries and groans of despair, "Lord, Lord, I want out of here!"
She kept reaching out to Jesus. I looked at Jesus, and there was great sorrow on His face. Jesus said to me, "My child, you are here with Me to let the world know that sin results in death, that hell is real. I looked at the woman again, and worms were crawling out of the bones of her skeleton. They were not harmed by the fire. Jesus said, "She knows and feels those worms inside."
"God, have mercy!" I cried as the fire reached its peak and the horrible burning started all over again. Great cries and deep sobs shook the form of this woman-soul. She was lost. There was no way out.
In the next pit was a very small-framed woman who looked to be about eighty years old. I can't say how I knew her age, but I did. The skin was removed from her bones by the continual flame, and only the bones remained with a dirty-mist soul inside. I watched as the fire burned her. Soon there were only the bones and the worms crawling inside, which the fire could not burn.
"Lord, how terrible!" I cried. "I don't know if I can go on, for this is awful beyond belief." As far as my eyes could see, souls were burning in pits of fire. "My child, this is why you are here," Jesus answered. "You must know and tell the truth about hell. Heaven is real! Hell is real! Come, we must go on."
I looked back at the woman. Her cries were so sad. As I watched her, she put her bony hands together, as if in prayer. I couldn't help crying. I was in a spirit form, and I was crying. I knew that people in hell felt all these things, too. Jesus knew my thoughts. "Yes, child," He said, "they do. When people come here, they have the same feelings and thoughts as when they were on earth. They remember their families and friends and all the times they had a chance to repent but refused to do so. Memory is always with them. If only they had believed the gospel and repented before it was too late."
I looked at the old woman once again, and this time I noticed that she had only one leg, and there seemed to be holes drilled in her hip bones. "What are these, Jesus?" I asked.
He said, "Child, while she was on earth, she had cancer and was in much pain. Surgery was done to save her life. She lay a bitter old woman for many years. Many of My people came to pray for her and to tell her I could heal her. She said, 'God did this to me,' and she would not repent and believe the gospel. She even knew Me once, but in time she came to hate Me.
"She said she did not need God and did not want Me to heal her. Yet I pleaded with her, still wanting to help her, wanting to heal and to bless her. She turned her back on Me and cursed Me. She said she did not want Me. My spirit pleaded with her. Even after she had turned her back on Me, I still tried to draw her by My spirit, but she would not listen. At last she died and came here."
The old woman cried out to Jesus, "Lord Jesus, please forgive me now. I'm sorry that I didn't repent while I was on earth."
With great sobs she cried out to Jesus, "If only I had repented before it was too late! Lord, help me out of here. I will serve You. I will be good. Haven't I suffered enough? Why did I wait until too late? Oh, why did I wait until Your Spirit quit striving with me?"
Jesus said to her, "You had chance after chance to repent and serve Me." Sadness was written all over Jesus' face as we walked away. As I watched the old woman cry, I asked, "Lord, what is next?"
I could feel fear all around. Sorrow, cries of pain and an atmosphere of death were everywhere. Jesus and I walked in grief and pity to the next pit. Only by His strength could I go on. For a great distance I could still hear the old woman's cries of repentance and pleading for forgiveness. If only there was something I could do to help her, I thought. Sinner, please don't wait until God's Spirit quits striving with you.
"Dear Lord," I cried, "the torment is too real. When a soul comes here, there is no hope, no life, no love. Hell is too real." No way out, I thought. She must burn forever in these flames.
"Time is running out," Jesus said. "We will come back tomorrow."
Friend, if you are living in sin, please repent. If you have been born again and have turned your back on God, repent and turn back to Him now. Live good and stand for truth. Wake up before it is too late, and you can spend forever with the Lord in heaven. Jesus spoke again, "Hell has a body (like a human form) lying on her back in the center of the earth. Hell is shaped like a human body- very large and with many chambers of torment.
"Remember to tell the people of earth that hell is real. Millions of lost souls are here, and more are coming every day. On the Great Judgment Day, death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire; that will be the second death."
The Right Leg of Hell
I had not been able to sleep or eat since I was in hell the night before. Each day I relived hell. When I closed my eyes, all I could see was hell. My ears could not shut out the cries of the damned. Just like a television program, I relived all the things I had witnessed in hell over and over. Each night I was in hell, and each day I labored to find just the right words to bring this frightful thing to all the world.
Jesus appeared to me again and said, "Tonight we are going into the right leg of hell, My child. Don't be frightened, for I love you and I am with you. "
The face of the Lord was sorrowful, and His eyes were filled with great tenderness and deep love. Though those in hell were forever lost, I knew that He still loved them and would for all eternity.
"My child," He said, "God, our Father, gave each one of us a will so that we could choose whether we would serve Him or Satan. You see, God did not make hell for His people. Satan deceives many into following him, but hell was made for Satan and his angels. It is not My desire, nor that of My Father, that anyone should perish."
Tears of compassion ran down Jesus' cheeks.
He began to speak again, "Remember My words in the days ahead as I show you hell. I have all power in heaven and earth.' Now, at times it will seem to you that I have left you, but I have not. Also, at times we will be seen by the evil forces and lost souls, while at other times we will not be. No matter where we go, be at peace and fear not to follow Me."
We went on together. I followed closely behind Him crying. For days I had been crying, and I could not shake off the very presence of hell which was ever before me. I cried mostly inside. My spirit was very sad.
Jesus and I walked on down the pathway until we came to another pit. Cries of pain, unforgettably sorrowful sounds, were everywhere. My Lord, what is next? I thought. We walked directly past some of the evil beings, which didn't seem to see us, and stopped at another pit of fire and brimstone. In this next pit was a large-framed man. I heard him preaching the gospel. I looked in amazement to Jesus for an answer, for He always knew my thoughts. He said, "While he was on earth, this man was a preacher of the gospel. At one time he spoke the truth and served me."
I wondered what this man was doing in hell. He was about six feet tall, and his skeleton was a dirty, grayish color, like a tombstone. Parts of his clothing still hung on him. I wondered why the flames had left these torn and tattered clothes and had not burned them up. Burning flesh was hanging from him, and his skull seemed to be in flames. A terrible odor came from him.
I watched the man spread his hands as if he were holding a book and begin to read Scriptures from the make-believe book. Again, I remembered what Jesus had said: "You have all your senses in hell, and they are a lot stronger here."
The man read Scripture after Scripture, and I thought it was good. Jesus said to the man with great love in His voice, "Peace, be still." Immediately, the man stopped talking and turned slowly to look at Jesus.
I saw the man's soul inside this skeletal form. He said to the Lord, "Lord, now I will preach the truth to all the people. Now, Lord, I'm ready to go and tell others about this place. I know that while I was on earth, I didn't believe there was a hell, nor did I believe You were coming again. It was what people wanted to hear, and I compromised the truth to the people in my church. "I know I didn't like anyone who was different in race or color of skin, and I caused many to fall away from You.
I made my own rules about heaven and right and wrong. I know that I led many astray, and I caused many to stumble over Your Holy Word, and I took money from the poor. But, Lord, let me out, and I will do right. I won't take money from the church anymore. I have repented already. I will love people of every race and color."
Jesus said, "You not only distorted and misrepresented the Holy Word of God, but you lied about your not knowing the truth. The pleasures of life were more important to you than truth. I visited you Myself and tried to turn you around, but you would not listen. You went on your own way, and evil was your lord. You knew the truth, but you would not repent or turn back to Me. I was there all the time. I waited for you. I wanted you to repent, but you did not. And now the judgment has been set." Pity was on the face of Jesus. I knew that if the man had listened to the Savior's call, he would not be here now. O people, please listen.
Jesus spoke to the backslider again, "You should have told the truth, and you would have turned many to righteousness with God's Word, which says that all unbelievers will have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone. You knew the way of the cross. You knew the way of righteousness. You knew to speak the truth. But Satan filled your heart with lies, and you went into sin. You should have repented with sincerity, not halfway. My Word is true. It does not lie. And now it is too late, too late." At that, the man shook his fist at Jesus and cursed Him.
With sorrow, Jesus and I walked on to the next pit. The backslidden preacher was still cursing and angry at Jesus. As we walked past the pits of fire, the hands of the lost reached out to Jesus, and in pleading voices they called out to Him for mercy. Their bony hands and arms were gray-black from the burning-no live flesh or blood, no organs, only death and dying. Inside myself I was crying, O earth, repent. If you don't, you'll come here. Stop before it is too late.
Jesus and I walked on through the pits. I wanted to pull each person I passed from the fire and rush them to the feet of Jesus. I wept much inside. I thought to myself, I never want my children to come here.At last, Jesus turned to me and said quietly, “My child, we will go to your home now. Tomorrow night we shall return to this part of hell.”
Back at my home I cried and cried. During the day I relived hell and the horror of all those people there. I told everyone I met during the day about hell. I told them that the pain of hell is beyond belief. Those of you who read this book, please, I beg of you, repent of your sins. Call on Jesus and ask Him to save you. Call on Him today. Do not wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow may not come. Time is quickly running out. Fall on your knees and be cleansed from your sins.
Be good to each other. For Jesus' sake, be kind and forgiving to one another. If you are angry with someone, forgive him. No anger is worth going to hell for. Be forgiving as Christ forgives us of our sins. Jesus is able to keep us if we have a repentant heart and will let His blood cleanse us from all sin. Love your children, and love your neighbor as yourself.
The Lord of the churches says, "Repent and be saved!
The next night Jesus and I went again Into the right leg of hell. I saw as before the love Jesus had for the souls that are lost in hell. And I felt His love for me and for all those who were on earth.
"Child," He said to me, "it is not the Father's will that anyone perish. Satan deceives many, and they follow him. But God is forgiving. He is a God of love. If these had truly come unto the Father and repented, He would have forgiven them." Great tenderness covered Jesus' face as He spoke.
Again we walked among the flaming pits and passed by more people in the torments I described earlier. My Lord, my Lord, such horrors! I thought. On and on we walked past many, many souls burning in hell.All along the pathway burning hands reached out to Jesus. There were only bones where the flesh should have been-a grayish mass with burning and decayed flesh hanging in shreds. Inside each frame of their skeleton form was a dirty-gray mist-soul caught inside a dry skeleton forever. I could tell by their cries that they felt the fire, the worms, the pain, the hopelessness. And their cries filled my soul with a grief so great I cannot describe it. If only they had listened, I thought, they would not be here.
I knew that the lost in hell had all their senses. They remembered all that was ever told them. They knew there was no way out of the flames and that they were lost forever. Yet, without hope, they still hoped as they cried out to Jesus for mercy. We stopped at the next pit. It was exactly like all the others. Inside it was the form of a woman, which I knew by her voice. She cried out to Jesus for deliverance from the flames. Jesus looked on the woman with love and said, "While you were on earth, I called you to come to ,I Me. I pleaded with you to get your heart right with I Me before it was too late. I visited you many times j in the midnight hour to tell you of My love. I wooed! you, loved you and drew you to Me by My Spirit.
"Yes Lord,' you said, 'I will follow You,' With your lips you said you loved Me, but your heart did not mean it. I knew where your heart was. I often sent my messengers to you to tell you to repent of your sins and come to Me, but you would not hear Me. I wanted to use you to minister to others, to help others to find Me. But you wanted the world and not Me. I called you, but you would not hear Me, nor would you repent of your sins."
The woman said to Jesus, "You remember, Lord, how I went to church and was a good woman. I joined the church. I was a member of Your church. I knew Your call was on my life. I knew I had to obey that call at all costs, and I did."
Jesus said, "Woman, you are still full of lies and sin. I called you, but you would not hear Me! True, you were a member of a church, but being a church member did not get you to heaven. Your sins were many, and you did not repent. You caused others to stumble at My Word. You would not forgive others when they hurt you. You pretended to love and serve Me when you were with Christians, but when you were away from Christians, you lied, cheated and stole. You gave heed to seducing spirits and enjoyed your double life. You knew the straight and narrow way."
"And," Jesus said, "you also had a double tongue. You talked about your brothers and sisters in Christ. You judged them and thought you were holier than they, when there was gross sin in your heart. This I know, you would not listen to My sweet Spirit of compassion. You judged the outside of a person, without regard to the fact that many were children in the faith. You were very hard.
"Yes, you said you loved Me with your lips, but your heart was far from Me. You knew the ways of the Lord and you understood. You played with God, and God knows all things. If you had sincerely served God, you would not be here today. You cannot serve Satan and God at the same time."
Jesus turned to me and said, "Many in the last days will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and will serve sin. Come out from among them, and be separate. Walk not in the way with them." As we walked away, the woman began to curse and swear at Jesus. She screamed and cried with rage. We walked on. I was so weak in body.
The Tunnel of Fear
I tried to remember the preaching I had heard about hell. But never had I heard about such dreadful things as the Lord had shown me here. Hell was infinitely worse than anyone could think or imagine. It hurt me so to know that the souls that are now in torment in hell will be there for eternity. There is no way out.
I am determined that I will do everything in my power to save souls from these honors. I must preach the gospel to everyone I meet, for hell is a frightful place, and this is a true report.
Do you realize what I am saying? If sinners do not repent and believe the gospel, they will surely end up here.
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and call on Him to save you from sin. Read chapters 3 and 14 of the Gospel of John. And please read this book from cover to cover so you can understand more about hell and the hereafter. As you read, pray that Jesus will come into your heart and wash away your sins before it is too late.
I thought of how pride in all of us at times makes us unwilling to admit mistakes and ask for forgiveness. We refuse to repent and humble ourselves, and we go on as if we alone were ever right. But listen, soul, hell is real. Please do not go to that place.Then Jesus showed me a giant clock, stretched out across the whole world. And I heard it ticking. The hour hand was nearing the twelve o'clock position, and the minute hand raced around until it stopped at three minutes before twelve. Stealthily the minute hand moved toward the hour. As it moved, the ticking became louder and louder until it seemed to fill the whole earth.
God spoke like a trumpet, and His voice sounded like many waters. "Listen and hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches," He said. "Be ready, for at a time you think not, I will come again. I hear the clock striking. It is twelve o'clock. The Bridegroom has come for His bride."
Are you ready for Christ's coming, my friend? Or will you be like those who say, "Not today, Lord?" Will you call upon Him and be saved? Will you give your heart to Him today? Remember, Jesus can and will save you from all evil if you call on Him today, and repent. Pray for your family and your loved ones that they will come to Christ before it is too late. Listen as Jesus says, "I will protect you from evil. I will keep you in all your ways. I will save you. I will save your loved ones. Call upon Me today and live. "
With many tears, I pray that all of you who read this book will realize the truth before it is too late. Hell is for eternity. I am trying to the best of my ability to reveal all I saw and heard. I know these things are true. As you read the remainder of this book, I pray that you will repent and take Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. I heard the Lord say, "It is time to go. We shall return again tomorrow."
Visions of Heaven
Some of the following visions were given to me before Jesus took me into hell. Some of them came near the end of my journey through hell.
Similarity to God
I received this heavenly vision while in deep prayer, meditation and worship. The glory of the Lord descended upon the place where I was praying. Great billows of fire, bright lights and majestic power came before my eyes. In the center of the fire and the lights was the throne of God. On the throne was a similarity of God. Joy, peace and love flowed from God Almighty. The air around the throne was filled with baby cherubim, singing and kissing the Lord upon His face, His hands and His feet. The song they sang was "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty."
The cherubim had tongues of fire sitting on their heads and on the tips of each tiny wing. The motion of their wings seemed synchronized with the movement of the power and glory of the Lord. A cherub flew to me and touched my eyes.
In a vision I looked far out over the earth. I could see that for many miles the land was thirsty for rain. The ground was cracked, dry and barren. There were no trees or vegetation of any kind to be seen.Then I was allowed to see beyond the dry land, all the way to heaven. There, side by side and touching at their bases, were two giant mountains. I do not know their height, but they were very, very high. I drew closer to the mountains and discovered that they were made of solid gold-gold so pure it was transparent.
Through and beyond the mountains I saw a brilliant white light, and the light expanded to fill the universe. I felt in my heart that this was the base upon which heaven sits. Men fight over a small gold ring, but God owns all the gold.
The Building of a Mansion
While at prayer I received this vision. I saw angels reading the record of the works we do here on earth. Some of the angels had wings, while some did not. Some were big, and some were little, but all their faces were different. Like the people here on earth, the angels could be identified by their facial features. I saw the angels busily cutting extremely large diamonds and placing them in the foundations of beautiful mansions. The diamonds were a foot thick and two feet long and very beautiful. Each time a soul is won for God, a diamond is added to the soul winner's mansion. No labor is in vain when it is done for God.
Gates of Heaven At another time when I was in prayer, I saw this heavenly vision. I was in the spirit and an angel came to me and took me into the heavens. Again there were magnificent scenes of billowing light and dazzling glory such as I had seen behind the solid gold mountains. It was awe-inspiring to behold the power of God displayed. As the angel and I approached two giant gates in a huge wall, we saw two exceptionally large angels with swords. They were about fifty feet tall, and their hair was spun gold. The gates were so high I could not see the tops of them. They were the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen. They were hand carved, with intricate folds, drapes, layers and carvings, and were studded with pearls, diamonds, rubies, sapphires and other gems. Everything on the gates was in perfect balance, and the gates opened outward. An angel with a book in his hand came out from behind the gates. After checking the book, the angel nodded, confirming that I could enter. Reader, you cannot get into heaven if your name is not in the Lamb's Book of Life.
The File Room
In a vision, an angel took me to heaven and showed me a very large room with walls of solid gold. Alphabetical letters were engraved here and there on the walls. The scene was much like a huge library, but the books were embedded into the wall instead of being shelved.
Angels in long robes were taking books out of the walls and studying them closely. There seemed to be a rigid order in what they did. I noticed that the books had thick gold covers and some of the pages were red. The books were very beautiful. The angel with me said these books were a record of the lives of every person who has ever been born on earth. I was told there were more rooms elsewhere with even more records. From time to time the archangels brought the records before God for His approval or disapproval. The books contained prayer requests, prophecies, attitudes, growth in the Lord, souls led to Christ, the fruit of the Spirit and much more. Everything we do on earth is recorded in one of the books by the angels. Every so often an angel would take a book down and wash the pages with a soft cloth. Thewashed pages turned red.
A Heavenly Ladder
The Spirit of the Lord brought me the following vision. I saw a large spiritual ladder which descended from heaven to earth. On one side of the ladder angels were coming down to the earth, while on the other side they were going up.The angels on the ladder had no wings, but every angel had a book with a name written on the front cover. Some of the angels seemed to be giving directions and answering questions posed to them by the other angels. Once the directions were received and their questions answered, they disappeared.I also saw other ladders in other parts of the earth. Angels were in constant motion, ascending and descending. The angels moved with boldness and authority, since they were messengers with orders from God.
Scriptures about Hell
The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God.
Hell and Destruction are before the LORD; So how much more the hearts of the sons of men.
“ Hell from beneath is excited about you, To meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, All the chief ones of the earth; It has raised up from their thrones All the kings of the nations.
If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— where
‘ Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched.’
2 Peter 2:4
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;
“There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’
The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
This is a short excerpt (not the full book) from Mary K Baxters book ‘A Divine Revelation of Hell’, Whitaker House Publishing
This book is one of the most powerful books on the planet (except of course for the Bible), it is worth infinitely more than its weight in gold, and would recommend to all Christians.
Message 3: How to become born-again
So, what does this mean?
The World, and its system is temporal, money, family, friends, all these things shall pass away, but the only thing that cant pass away is God, because God is eternal. There is a heaven and there is a hell, but only those who belong to God shall go there (heaven). There is nothing that can save you from hell except trust in Jesus Christ as Savior. It is not important how good you are, if you attend church, if you don’t attend church, because if being good was all that was needed, Jesus wouldn’t have had to go to the Cross, and rise again. Only those who are re-born into the Kingdom by repenting of their sins and trusting in Jesus forgiveness can go to heaven.
Jesus was the only person who never sinned, so when he shed His blood on the Cross, it was an acceptable sacrifice to pay the price for the sins of everyone who would accept Gods forgiveness, as God is a God of love, but also a Holy God who has to bring everyone to account on the day of judgment (Heb 9:27). Because Jesus shed His Blood, it means that whoever receives Jesus as Lord can also receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is given to everyone who belongs to God,
Are you ready for eternity ?
“And everyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire…..” - Revelation 20:15
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” - Romans 10:13
THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN
NO ONE ELSE CAN SAVE YOU. TRUST JESUS TODAY
“No one can see the Kingdom of Heaven unless he is born-again” (John 3:3)
“I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
WHAT TO PRAY
Lord I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross and rose again to pay for my sins, so that I can be forgiven, and have eternity in heaven. I repent of my sins, and ask you now to become Lord and savior of my Life, please come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins, and make me born-again through the Holy Spirit.
Now that you have prayed this prayer, ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit because this is the will of God for those that give their lives to Jesus Christ. You can read the following verses (John 4:14, chapters 14,15,16) , (Acts 1:8) to learn more and pray this prayer in your own words in order to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
“Heavenly Father, I understand that I need the Holy Spirit. Please fill me with your presence and baptize me with the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ”
“But you will receive power when the Holy spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”(Acts 1:8)
“But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”(John 4:14) Also read the Gospel of John chapters 14, 15 and 16 to learn more.
If you have prayed with your whole heart and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you now have a relationship with Him. You are God's child. Below are some instructions to help you get started the right way in your new walk with Christ.
1. STUDY GOD'S HOLY WORD Everything you need to know about God, His promises and His purpose for your life are in the Bible. Your faith in God and all God's great promises available to you are dependent upon you knowing about them. If you don’t know the Word of Truth, then you won't be able to accurately handle the Word of truth. Begin by reading the Gospels so that you can know Jesus more. Read a chapter or two and prayerfully spend some time thinking about what you have read. As you read, ask yourself questions such as these:
- Is there something here that applies to my life?
- Is there a command I should obey?
- Is there a sin I should forsake?
- What is the Lord saying to me?
- Let the Holy Spirit speak to you through the pages of the Bible.
- Make a daily commitment to reading and studying the Bible.
"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15 )
2. PRAY EVERY DAY It is important to spend time in prayer everyday because when you pray you communicate with God. Communication is the key to all relationships. Without communication, there is no hope for any kind of meaningful relationship. By praying to God you communicate to Him your desires, emotions, fears etc and thus you allow God to speak to you to show you what to do. Prayer is important so that you can seek God's will for your life every day. Therefore talk to God in prayer every day.
- When praying to God you should
- praise Him for who He is
- confess your sins to God as honestly and specifically as you can,
- thank God for what He has done for you and for everything He has given you.
- Ask God for your needs. Be specific and trust Him to meet these needs. Show your concern for others by praying for them asking God to meet their needs.
3. CONFESSION CHRIST BY WORD OF MOUTH It is important to tell people about Jesus Christ and what He has done for you. It is your responsibility to help spread the Gospel of Christ because the people of the world are dying and going to Hell...Love will release you to want to save people. "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. ( Proverbs 11:30 )
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16
4. DO NOT FORSAKE THE LORD'S HOUSE It is important to find and regularly attend a good church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.
"not forsaking the assembling together of ourselves, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another."(Heb. 10:25 )
By assembling with other Christians, You gain strength. Also great blessing comes as God’s people come together in worship, praising and singing to the Lord.
The Lord inhabits the praises of His people (Psalms 22:3).
6. WORK FOR CHRIST Seek the Lord to find the area where Jesus wants you to work and be faithful. "Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful." (1 Cor. 4:2 )
