I was sick for many days after I was left in the jaws of hell. I had to have the lights left on when I slept. I needed the Bible with me at all times, and I read it constantly. My soul was in severe shock. I knew now what the lost endured when they went to hell to stay.
Jesus would say, “Peace, be still,” and peace would flood my soul. But a few minutes later I would wake up screaming, hysterical with fear.
During this time, I knew I was never alone-Jesus was always there. But even with that knowledge, I sometimes could not feel His presence. And I was so afraid of having to go back to hell that I was fearful to even have Jesus near me sometimes.
I tried to tell others about my experiences in hell. They would not listen to me. I begged them, “Please, repent of your sins before it’s too late.” It ‘ was difficult for anyone to believe what I told them of the torment that I had been through and how Jesus had told me to write about hell.
The Lord assured me that He was the Lord j who healed me. And though I believed I would never j fully recover, healing did come.
And then it happened again. Again I was in the spirit with the Lord Jesus, and we were soaring high up in the sky.
Jesus said, “I want to show you the love and goodness of God and parts of heaven. I want you to see the wondrous works of the Lord, which are so beautiful to behold.”
Ahead of us I saw two giant planets, beautiful and glorious in all their splendor. God himself was the light there.!
An angel met us and said to me, “See the goodness and kindness of the Lord your God. His mercy endures forever.” There was such a strong sense of love and tenderness about the angel that I was about to weep when he spoke again, “Behold the power and might and majesty of God. Let me show you the place He has created for the children.”
All at once there was a large planet looming before us, a planet as large as the earth. And then I heard the voice of the Father saying, “The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are all one. The Father and the Son are one, and the Father and the Holy Ghost are one. I sent My Son to die on a cross so that no one needed to be lost.
“But,” He said with a smile, “I was about to show you the place I made for My children. I care greatly about all children. I care when a mother loses a child, even as the fruit of your womb, My child, was cast before its time. You see, I know all things, and I care.
“From the time there is life in the womb, I know. I know about the babies that are murdered while they are still in their mother’s bodies-the aborted lives that are cast off and unwanted. I know about the stillborn and those children who are born with crippling defects. From the time of conception, that is a soul.
“My angels go down and bring the children to Me when they die. I have a place where they can grow, learn and be loved. I give them whole bodies and restore whatever parts they are missing. I give them glorified bodies.”
Allover the planet there was a feeling of being loved, a sense of perfect well-being. Everything was perfect. Here and there amid the lush green grass and the pools of crystal clear water were playgrounds with marble seats and highly polished wooden benches to sit on.
And there were children. Everywhere one looked, there were children going about all kinds of activities. Each child wore a spotless white robe and sandals. The white robes were so bright they glistened in the magnificent light on the planet. A profusion of color everywhere accented the whiteness of the children’s robes. Angels were the keepers of the gates, and the children’s names were all written in a book.
I saw children learning the Word of God and being taught music from a golden book. I was surprised to see animals of all sorts coming up to the children or sitting beside them while they were in this angelic school.
There were no tears and no sorrow. Everything was supremely beautiful, and joy and happiness were everywhere.
Then the angel showed me another planet which glowed like a great light before me. The light shone with the radiance of a million stars, and everything on the planet was beautiful and alive.
In the distance I saw two mountains made of pure gold, while closer to me were two golden gates embedded with diamonds and other precious stones. I knew that this was the new earth and that the city which lay in splendor before me was the New Jerusalem-the city of God come down to earth.
And then I was back on the old earth-earth as it was before the final fires that would purge it and purify it for God’s glorious purpose. And here too was a new Jerusalem, the capital city of the millennium. And I saw people coming out of caves and from the mountains and making their way toward this city.
Here Jesus was King, and all the nations of the earth brought Him gifts and paid Him homage.
Jesus gave me the interpretation of my vision. He said, “Soon I will return and take back with Me to heaven, first the righteous dead, then after them those that are alive and remain will be caught up to be with Me in the air. Following that, the Antichrist will reign upon the earth for an appointed time, and there will be tribulations such as have never been before, nor will ever be again.
“And then I will return with My saints, and Satan will be cast into the bottomless pit, where he will remain for a thousand years. During that thousand years I will reign over the earth from Jerusalem. When the millennium is past, Satan will be released for a season, and I will defeat him by the brightness of My coming. The old earth will pass away.
“Behold, there shall be a new earth and a New” Jerusalem coming down upon it-and I will reign forever and ever.”
