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.
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 Me. I pleaded with you to get your heart right with I
Me before it was too late. I visited you many times 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
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
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. In the next pit was
the form of another skeleton. I smelled the odor of death even before
we arrived. This skeleton looked the same as the others. I wondered what this
soul had done that it should be lost and hopeless, with no future
except an eternity in this dreadful place. Hell is for eternity. As I
heard the crying of the souls in torment, I cried too.
I listened as a woman
spoke to Jesus from the flames of the pit. She was quoting the Word
of God. "Dear Lord, what is she doing here?" I asked. "Listen,"
said Jesus. The woman said, "Jesus
is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by
Him. Jesus is the Light of the World. Come to Jesus, and He will save
When she spoke, many
of the lost souls around her listened. Some swore and cursed at her.
Some told her to stop. Still others said, "Is there really
hope?" or "Help us, Jesus." Great cries of sorrow
filled the air. I didn't understand
what was happening. I did not know why the woman was preaching the
The Lord knew my
thoughts. He said, "Child, I called this woman at the age of
thirty to preach My Word and to be a witness of the gospel. I call
different ones for different purposes in My body. But if man or
woman, boy or girl doesn't want My Spirit, I will depart. "Yes, she did
answer My call for many years, and she grew in the knowledge of the
Lord. She learned My voice, and she did many good works for Me. She
studied the Word of God. She prayed often, and she had many prayers
answered. She taught many people the way of holiness. She was
faithful in her house.
"The years went
by until one day she found out that her husband was having an affair
with another woman. And even though he asked for forgiveness, she
grew bitter and would not forgive him and try to save her marriage.
True, her husband was wrong, and he did commit a very grave sin. "But this woman
knew My Word. She knew to forgive, and she knew that with every
temptation there is a way of escape. Her husband asked her to forgive
She would not. Instead, anger took root. Anger grew inside her.
She would not turn it over to Me. She turned more bitter each day and
said in her heart, 'Here I am serving God all the way, and my husband
is running around with another woman! 'Do you think that is right?'
She said to Me. "I said, 'No, it
is not right. But he came to you and repented and said he would never
do that again.
"I told her,
'Daughter, look inside yourself, and see that you have caused this
yourself” "'Not me, Lord,'
she said, 'I am the holy one, and he is the sinful one.' She would
not listen to Me. "Time went on,
and she wouldn't pray to Me or read the Bible. She became angry not
only at her husband, but also at those around her. She quoted the
Scriptures, but she would not forgive him. "She would not
listen to Me. Her heart grew bitter, and great sin entered in. Murder
grew in her heart where love had once been. And one day, in her
anger, she killed her husband and the other woman. satan then took
her over completely, and she killed herself.
"I looked at that lost
soul that had given up Christ and condemned her soul forever to the
flames and the pain. I listened as she responded to Jesus. "I
will forgive now, Lord,” she said. "Let me out. I will
obey You now. See, Lord, I am preaching Your Word now. In an hour
demons will come to take me to be tormented even worse. For hours
they will torture me. Because I was preaching your Word, my torments
are worse. Please, Lord, I beg You to let me out." I cried with the woman
in the pit and asked the Lord to please keep me from all bitterness
of heart. "Don't let me allow hatred to come into my heart, Lord
Jesus,” I said. "Come, let us go
on," Jesus said.
In the next pit was
the soul of a man wrapped in its skeleton form, crying out to Jesus. "Lord," he cried, "help me to understand why I am
here." Jesus said, "Peace,
be still. You understand why you are here." "Let me out, and
I will be good," the man begged. The Lord said to him,
"Even in Hell you are still lying. " Jesus then turned to
me and said, "This man was 23 years old when he came here. He
would not listen to My gospel. He heard My Word many times and was
often in My house.
I drew him by My Spirit unto salvation, but he
wanted the world and its lust. He liked to drink and would not heed
My call. He was raised in the church, but he would not commit himself
to Me. One day he said to Me, 'I will give my life to You one day,
Jesus.' But that day never came. One night after a party, he was in a
car wreck and was killed. satan deceived him to the very end.
"He was killed
instantly. He would not listen to My call. Others were also killed in
the accident. satan's work is to kill, steal and destroy. If only
this young man had listened! It is not the Father's will that any
perish. satan wanted this man's soul, and he destroyed it through
carelessness, sin and strong drink. Many homes and lives are
destroyed every year because of alcohol."
If people could only
see that the lusts and desires of the world are only for a season! If
you come to the Lord Jesus, He will deliver you from strong drink. Call
on Jesus, and He will hear you and help you. He will be your
friend. Remember He loves you, and He also has the power to forgive
Jesus warns that you must not commit adultery. And desiring someone
of the opposite sex, even when you don't commit adultery, could be
adultery in your heart. Young people, stay
away from drugs and sex sins. If you have sinned, God will forgive
you. Call on Him now while there is still time. Find strong Christian
adults, and ask them if you can talk with them about your problems. You
will be glad that you took the time now in this world before it
is too late.
Satan comes as an
angel of light to deceive the world. No wonder the sins of the world
look tempting to this young man, even though he knew God's Holy Word.
One more party, he thought, Jesus will understand. But death has no
mercy. He waited too late. I looked at the soul
of the man, and I was reminded of my own children. "Oh God, may
they serve You!" I know that many of you who are reading this
have loved ones, maybe children, that you do not want to go to Hell.
Tell them about Jesus before it is too late. Tell them to repent of
their sins and that God will forgive them and make them holy.
The man's cries rang
inside me for days. I will never forget his cries of regret. I
remember the flesh hanging and burning in the flames. I cannot forget
the decay, the smell of death, holes where eyes once were, the
dirty-gray souls and the worms that crawled through the bones. The
form of the young man raised his arms toward Jesus pleadingly as we
walked away toward the next pit. "Dear Lord,"
I prayed, "give me the strength to go on. I heard a woman's
voice crying out in desperation. Cries of the dead were everywhere.
Soon we came to the
pit where the woman was. She was pleading with all her soul for Jesus
to take her out of there. "Lord," she said, "haven't I
been here long enough? My torment is more than I can bear. Please,
Lord, let me out!" Sobs shook her form, and such pain was in her
voice. I knew she was suffering greatly. I said, "Jesus,
is there nothing You can do?"
Jesus then spoke to
the woman. "While you were on earth," He said, "I
called and called for you to come to Me. I pleaded with you to get
your heart right with Me, to forgive others, to do right, to stay out
of sin. I even visited you in the midnight hour and drew you by My
Spirit time after time. With your lips you said you loved Me, but
your heart was far from Me. Didn't you know that nothing can be
hidden from God? You fooled others, but you could not fool Me. I sent
still others to tell you to repent, but you would not listen. You
would not hear, you would not see, and in anger you turned them away. I
placed you where you could hear My Word. But you would not give
your heart to Me.
"You were not
sorry, nor were you ashamed of what you were doing. You hardened your
heart and turned Me away. Now you are lost and forever undone. You
should have listened to Me." At this, she looked at
Jesus and began to swear and to curse God. I felt the presence of
evil spirits and knew that it was they who were cursing and swearing.
How sad to be lost forever in hell! Resist the devil while you still
may, and he will flee from you. Jesus said, "The
world and all that is in it will pass away, but my words will not
