There was a rich man that dressed in purple and fine linen, who enjoyed luxurious living every day. In front of his gate a beggar named Lazarus was placed, covered with sores, and hungering to be fed crumbs that fell from the rich man's table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
The beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried, and while suffering tortures in Hades, he looked up and from a distance saw Abraham with Lazarus in his bosom. So he called out, Father Abraham, take pity on me and send Lazarus to dip his finger tip in water and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this fire.
But Abraham said, Son, remember that you enjoyed the good things in your lifetime while Lazarus had the bad things; now he is being comforted here but you are suffering anguish. Besides, there is a great chasm fixed between you and us, so that those who want to cross from here to you are unable; neither can they cross from your side to us.
The Bible, the word of God, is very clear about the subject of heaven and hell. In this portion that we have just read, the Lord tells us about two places: Heaven and Hell, the condemnation or the salvation. There is no intermediate place. Purgatory does not exist. Limbo does not exist, where men exist for a while after they have departed from the Earth and then go to heaven; the Bible is very clear about that.
(April 11th 1995)
God gave us a revelation that would change the trajectory of our lives. We had just begun to know about God and His Word. We are seven youth to whom God has given the privilege and great responsibility of sharing this revelation with the world.
Everything started about approximately 10:00 a.m. We were praying and were prepared to go out on a picnic later on that day. Suddenly around 10 am, a very powerful white light shone through one of the windows. When the light appeared, all of us immediately started to speak in tongues and were baptized with the Holy Ghost.
In that moment, all of us were astonished and fascinated with what we saw. That glorious light was illuminating the entire room. The light was much stronger than the light from the sun. In the middle of the light, we saw a host of angels dressed in white. These angels were so beautiful, tall, and very good looking.
In the middle of all those angels we saw something amazing -- the figure of a Man. This image was a special being, a man who was dressed in a very white mantle and robes. His hair was like gold threads. We could not see His face because it was too brilliant. However, we saw a golden belt around His chest, with gold lettering that said: "King of Kings and Lord of Lords." He was wearing pure gold sandals on His feet, and His beauty was without equal. When we saw the presence of that Man, all of us fell to our knees.
Then we started to hear His voice. It was very special and wonderful; every word drilled into our hearts like a double-edged sword; just like it is written in the word of God (Hebrews 4:12). He spoke to us in very simple but powerful words. We audibly heard Him say to us, "My little children don't be afraid, I am Jesus of Nazareth, and I have visited you to show you a mystery so you can show and tell to towns, nations, cities, churches, and all places. Where I tell you to go, you will go, and where I tell you not to go, you will not go."
The Holy Bible, the Word of God, says in Joel 2:28 "It shall come to pass after this that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions." These are the times that God is preparing for everyone.
Then something strange happened, a rock appeared in the middle of the room, and the Lord, who was with us, made us get on that rock. The rock was about eight inches above the floor, and a huge hole appeared in the floor. It was a huge, black, terrifying hollow or cavern. Soon, we fell on top of the rock and went down through the hollow in the floor. It was dark and it leads us to the centre of the earth.
While we were in that gloomy darkness, we were so scared! We were so afraid that we said to the Lord, "Lord we don't want to go to that place! Don't take us to that place Lord! Take us out of here Lord!" The Lord answered us with a very beautiful and compassionate voice, "This experience is necessary so you can see and tell others."
We were in a horn-shaped tunnel, and we stared to see shadows, demons and figures that moved from one place to another. We kept going deeper and deeper down. In just a matter of seconds, we felt emptiness and a great fear.
We then arrived at some caverns; at some horrible doors, like a labyrinth. We didn't want to go inside. We noticed a terrible smell and a heat that choked us. Once we entered, we saw terrible things, frightful images. The entire place was engulfed in flames; and in the middle of these flames, there were bodies of thousands of people. They were suffering in great torment. The sight was so horrifying; we didn't want to see what was shown to us.
The place was divided into different sections of torment and suffering. One of the first sections that the Lord allowed us to see was the "Valley of the Cauldrons" as we called it. There were millions of cauldrons. The cauldrons were inlaid at the level of the ground; each of them was burning with lava inside. Inside each one was the soul of a person who had died and gone to hell.
As soon as those souls saw the Lord, they started to shout and screamed, "Lord, have mercy on us, Lord give me a chance to get out of this place! Lord, take me out and I will tell the world that this place is real!" But the Lord didn't even look at them. There were millions of men, women and young people in that place. We saw drunkards in torment. We saw all of these people shouting in such great torment.
It shocked us to see how their bodies were destroyed. Worms were coming in and out of their empty eye sockets, mouths, and ears; and were penetrating the skin all through their bodies. This fulfils the word of God written in the book of Isaiah 66:24 "They shall go forth; they shall gaze upon the dead bodies of those who have rebelled against me; for their worm shall not die, nor shall their fire be quenched; they shall be abhorrence to all mankind." Also in Mark; 9:44:"Where their worm never ceases and the fire is not put out." We were just horrified at what we were watching. We saw flames about 9 to 12 feet high. Within each flame, there was the soul of a person that has died and went to hell.
As we started to walk on the edges of that place, the souls extended their hands to us and begged for mercy. They asked Jesus to take them out of there, but the Lord would never even look at them.
Then we started going through different sections. We came to the most terrible section of hell, where the worse torments happen; the centre of hell. The most concentrated forms of torment; such torments that a human being could never express them. The only people here where those who knew Jesus and the Word of God, there were pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and all types of people that had once accepted Jesus and knew the truth; but lived a double life.
There were also backsliders; their suffering was a thousand times worse than any one else. They were shouting and begging the Lord for mercy, but the word of the Lord says in the book of Hebrews 10:26-27, "For if we go on sinning willfully after acquiring the knowledge of the truth, there is no longer left any sacrifice for sins, but some dreadful anticipation of judgment and of a fierce fire that is to devour those who oppose God."
Those souls were there because they preached, fasted, sung and lifted their hands in the church but in the streets and homes they were in adultery, fornication, lying, and robbery. We can not lie to God. The Bible says that he to whom much has been given much also will be required. (Luke 12:48)
God then allowed us to see two women that had once been Christian sisters while on the earth, but they didn't live a righteous life before the Lord. One said to the other, "You cursed wretch! It's your fault that I am in this place! You didn't preach to me a holy gospel! And because you didn't tell me about the truth, I am now here in hell!" They would say these things to each other in the midst of the flames, and they hated each other because there is no love, mercy or forgiveness in hell.
There were thousands of souls who had known the Word of God, but their lives weren't clean before the holy presence of the Lord. "You cannot play with God or with the flames of the hell either!" the Lord said. He also told us, "My sons, all the suffering on the earth concentrated in just one place is nothing, NOTHING compared with the suffering that a person has in the best parts of hell." If it is that terrible for those who suffer least in hell, how much worse must it be for those in the center of hell, who once knew the Word of the Lord and walked away from it. Then the Lord told us that we that we could play with the fire on the earth, but never with the fire in hell.
We continued walking through different places and the Lord showed us many different people. We could see that all the people there had approximately six different types of torments. There were souls tormented by demons with all types of punishments. Another terrible punishment was their own conscience saying, "Remember when they preached to you, remember when you heard the Word of God, remember when they told you about hell and you laughed about it!" Their own consciences tormented them; just like the worms that crossed all over their bodies, like the consuming fire that was thousands and thousands times more hotter than we know. This was the reward that the devil has for all those who seek him and follow him.
The Word of the Lord says in Revelation 21:8 "As for the cowardly, however, and the unbelieving, and the fearful, the murderers, the immoral, those practicing magic arts, and idolaters, and all liars- their lot is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death."
Next, the Lord showed us a man that had murdered six people. These six people now surrounded him, and were shouting at him saying, "It is your fault that we are all in this place, YOUR FAULT!" The murderer tried to cover his ears because he didn't want to listen to them, but he could not avoid listening since in hell all your senses are much more sensitive.
Souls in that place were tormented with an intolerable thirst for water that can not be satisfied in any way; like the Bible story of Lazarus and the rich man. (Luke 16:19) The rich man in Hell wanted only one single drop of water that would have been enough. The Word of the Lord says in Isaiah 34:9, "The streams of Edom shall be turned into pitch and her soil into brimstone; her land shall become burning pitch."
In that place, every soul was in the middle of the fire. People saw mirages of crystal-clear rivers in the middle of the fire; but when they tried to reach them, the rivers turned into fire. They also saw trees with fruit that gave out water; but when they tried to take them, they burned their hands and demons would ridicule them.
Then God took us to a place much worse than the other places that we had seen. We saw the lake of fire and brimstone. On one side of that lake there was a smaller lake. In that smaller lake, there were millions and millions and millions of souls crying and begging the Lord to have mercy on them. They said to Him, "Lord please, and take us out of here at least just a little moment! Please give me the chance to go out!!!" However, the Lord could not do anything for them because their judgment was already set.
Among those millions and millions of people, the Lord allowed us to focus on one man whose body was half-way submerged in the lake of fire. The Lord let us understand and know his thoughts. The name of that man was Mark. We were amazed by the things this man said to himself, in his thoughts. We learned an eternal lesson when we heard the following thoughts, "I would give anything to be in your place now! I would give anything to go back to the earth just for one minute. I wouldn't care if I were the most miserable, most sick, most hated, or the poorest man in the world; I would give anything to go back! Just for one minute on the earth." The Lord Jesus was holding my hand. Jesus replied to Mark's thoughts saying, "Mark, why would you like to come back to the earth even for just one single minute?" With a crying and tormented voice, he told Jesus, "Lord! I would give anything to go back to the earth just for one single minute simply to repent and be saved."
When the Lord heard what Mark had said, I saw blood come from Jesus' wounds and tears filled His eyes as He said, "Mark, it is too late for you! Worms are set for your bed and worms will cover you." (Isaiah 14:11) When the Lord said this to him, he sank in the lake forever. Sadly, all those souls have no more hope. Only we on Earth have the chance to repent today and go to Heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ.
I now leave you with my sister to continue this testimony, thank you.
2nd Testimony, Lupe
God bless you dear beloved brothers. Let's read the Word of the Lord from Psalms 18:9. "He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under His feet"
When the Lord reached for my hand, I grabbed His hand and we started to descend down that tunnel. The tunnel grew darker and darker to the point that I could not even see my other hand, that wasn't holding onto the Lord's hand.
Suddenly, we passed something dark and sparkling; which was making noise. The darkness was so dense; your hand could not even find the walls of the tunnel. Our descent was so fast, that I felt like my soul was separating from my body.
Soon I noticed a very rotten smell; like the smell of rotten flesh. It was getting much worse each moment. Then I heard the voices of millions and millions of souls. They were endlessly shouting, crying out and moaning. I was so frightened that I turned to the Lord and said, "Lord where are you taking me, Lord have mercy on me! Please have mercy on me!"
The Lord only said, "It is necessary that you see this, so you can tell everyone else."
We continued down through this horn-shaped tunnel until we arrived at place that was entirely dark. Like pulling a heavy curtain from my eyes, I then saw millions and millions of flames. Even worse, I heard these agonizing screams but couldn't see anyone. I was really scared. I said to the Lord, "Oh please Lord, and have mercy on me! Oh please Lord, have mercy on me! Don't take me to this place! Forgive me!"
At this time, I didn't think that I was just a spectator in hell; I thought it was the day of reckoning. Standing before the Lord Jesus, I was shaking violently because I really thought this was the end of my life.
We drew closer to a big flame ahead of us; it was huge and burning with fury. I continued going down slowly, seeing multitudes of flames and hearing millions of souls crying with one voice.
Then I saw a wooden table that was not being consumed by the fire. It had what appeared like beer bottles on it. These looked refreshing, but they were full of fire. As I was looking at this, a man suddenly appeared. His flesh was almost completely destroyed and what was left of his clothes was muddy and burning. He had lost his eyes, mouth, and all his hair from the fire. He could see me, even though he had no eyes. I tell you it is the soul of a person that thinks, reasons and truly sees; not your natural body.
The man extended his skinny hand towards the Lord and started to cry out, saying, "Lord, have mercy on me! Lord, have mercy on me! I am in pain! I am burning! Please have mercy and take me out of this place!"
The Lord looked at him with pity, and I started to feel something warm in my hand. I looked and it was blood...the blood of Jesus! The Lord's blood came from His hand while He was watching this suffering man engulfed in flames.
Then the man turned his gaze in the direction of the table and walked towards the bottles. He grabbed a bottle but as he was about to drink from it, fire and smoke shot out of the bottle. He put his head back and screamed like I have never heard before. He cried with such great pain and sorrow and then started to drink what was in this bottle. But the bottle was full of acid and his throat was totally destroyed by it. You could see the acid passing through his stomach and hurting him.
The number 666 was engraved on the forehead of this man. On his chest was a plate made of some unknown metal which couldn't be destroyed, not even by the heat or the worms. It has some letters written on it, but we could not understand them. The Lord, in His great mercy, gave us an interpretation of what was written. "I am here because I am a drunkard."
He begged the Lord for mercy, but the Word of God is very clear when it tell us in 1 Corinthians 6:10 "thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers will not inherit the kingdom of God."
The Lord showed me this man's last moments on earth, just like a movie or film. It was like a big television screen showing me his last seconds before death. The man's name was Luis and he was in a bar drinking. I saw the same table and the same bottles in that bar. Around this table were his friends. (I can tell you this now, there is only ONE TRUE FRIEND, and His name is JESUS CHRIST. He is the faithful friend.)
Luis was drinking and his friends were already drunk. His best friend took a bottle, broke it and started stabbing Luis. When he saw Luis lying on the floor he ran away, but Luis bled to death on the floor. The saddest thing was that he died without the Lord.
In the middle of all this, as all those souls in hell were crying out, I asked the Lord, "Oh Lord, please tell me, did this man know about you? Did he know about your salvation?"
The Lord sadly replied, "Yes Lupe, he knew about me. He accepted me as his personal saviour, but he did not serve me."
Then I felt even more fear. Luis cried louder and shouted, "Lord this hurts! This hurts! Please have mercy on me!"
He extended his hand again towards the Lord, but Jesus took my hand instead and we walked away from the flame. The flames consuming Luis became more violent, and he cried louder, "Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me!!"
He was then lost in the flames.
We continued walking; this place was just so huge and scary! We approached another flame and I said to the Lord, "Lord, no! Please I don't want to see anymore of this! I beg you to forgive me! Please forgive me! I don't want to see this!"
So I closed my eyes, but it didn't matter, open or closed I still saw everything. This flame started to go down slowly and I began to see a woman. She was covered with mud, and the mud was full of worms. She had very few hairs left, and she was caked with worm-infested mud. She was consumed by worms all around and she shouted, "Lord, have mercy on me! Lord, have mercy on me and forgive me! Look at me! This hurts! Have mercy on me! Take away these worms! Take me out of this torment because it hurts so much!"
The Lord simply looked at her with great sorrow. As we held His hand, we could feel the pain and sorrow in the Lord's heart for all the lost souls, eternally burning in the flames of hell.
This woman had no eyes or lips, but she could still see and feel; all the pain was just stronger. She had a bottle in her hands, full of acid, but she believed it was perfume. I could see that it was acid and every time she sprayed her body, it burned her. Nevertheless, she still kept applying this acid on her body over and over. She kept saying that it was an expensive perfume. She also believed that she was wearing a beautiful necklace, but all I saw were serpents wrapped around her neck. She believed that she was wearing very expensive bracelets, but I saw they were actually worms, about a foot long, furiously digging into her bones. She said that her jewelers were all she had, but I saw scorpions and worms all over her body. She had a metal plate that everyone wears in hell. It read "I am here for robbery."
This woman had no remorse for her sin. The Lord asked her, "Magdalena, why are you in this place?"
She answered, "It didn't bother me to steal from others. The only thing I cared about was having my jewelers and getting more expensive perfumes. I didn't care who I robbed, as long as I looked good."
I held onto Christ's hand as I saw the worms burrow through her entire body. Magdalena turned around looking for something. I asked the Lord once more, "Lord, did this person know about you?"
And the Lord answered, "Yes, this person knew me."
Magdalena started to look around, saying, "Lord where is that woman who talked to me about You? Where is she? I have been in hell for 15 years."
All people in hell can remember everything. Magdalena kept asking, "Where is this woman? I can't see her!"
I knew her body could not turn around because her flesh remained in the same position. She tried to turn and look into other flames, to find that woman who talked to her about God. The Lord replied, "No! No, Magdalena, she is not here. That woman that told you about Me is with Me in the Kingdom of Heaven."
Upon hearing this, she threw herself down in the flames and which burned her even more. Her metal plate condemned her as a thief. I want you to read in the Word of the Lord in Isaiah 3:24. "It shall be, that instead of a sweet smell, there will be rottenness; instead of a girdle, a rope; instead of well-set hair, baldness; instead of a rich robe, a wrapping of sack-cloth; instead of beauty, a branding mark."
As we continued walking with the Lord, I saw a very big column filled with worms. Around it was a slide made of red-hot metal. On this column there was a brightly-lit billboard that could be seen from anywhere. The Billboard read, "Welcome all liars and gossipers."
At the end of the slide was a small boiling lagoon. It looked like burning brimstone. Then I saw a totally naked person coming down the slide. As they slid, their skin would peel off and stick to the slide. When they fell into the burning lagoon, their tongue expanded until it exploded and worms appeared in place of the tongue. This began their torment. The Word of God says in Psalm 73:18-19 "Surely you did set them in slippery places: you cast them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors."
After seeing this, we were taken back, out of Hell. I just want to tell you that Heaven and Hell are even more real than this physical world that we know. It is here where you decide what direction you want to go; to spend eternity with Jesus or to a burning hell. The Lord kept saying to us, "Without holiness no man will see me, without holiness no man will see me."
(Hebrews 12:14) That is why I tell you the same thing now, "Without holiness you can not see the Lord."
