Minutes in Hell

I have been reading books by Bill Wiese about the Lord’s taking him to Hell for 23 minutes and his sequel to it on the subject of HELL. Some would ask, “why would Christians or any so-called good people want to read about Hell, anyway?”
Well, Jesus talked a lot about Hell and it kind of hit home when I was reading Jeremiah this morning in the beginning chapters, as well as throughout the whole book, God’s lamenting and His righteous anger with Judah and Israel because of their vehement backsliding. So I asked the Lord in prayer why in the world would HE want nasty ol’ Judah and Israel, anyway, when they had been unfaithful to Him, committing spiritual adultery, turning their backs and spurning Him after His gracious and magnanimous lovingkindness and compassion that He had shown toward them.

Why was He so upset over those evil doers, sending prophetic warnings and chasing after them, concerning all their sinfulness…verse after verse, chapter after chapter….Habakkak, Jeremiah, Jonah, ….book after book, in the O.T.
I believe Holy Spirit showed me part of the answer to that question. I believe He wanted them back to Himself for their own sakes as well as His. He wants the backslider and the sinner desperately to come to Him because He loves us beyond our wildest imagination or anything that we can think or fathom. And HE DOESN’T WANT ANY ONE OF US TO TO PERISH IN THE FLAMES OF HELL….a living, eternal punishment, endless, unceasing, hopelss ,torturous living death.
Hell has enlarged its borders and GOD desperately does NOT His creation to suffer torment beyond description. Even though Bill Weise tried to put into print what he saw and felt in Hell in just 23 minutes, it beggers description and apprehension of the human brain.
That is precisely why He sent Jesus THE SON. That was what Jesus suffered on the cross for us, so that no one would ever have to go to an eternal burning. He suffered and died the pains of Hell and when the complete and total price for our redeeming was paid…a faultless work….He rose again from the dead to reign over us and lead and guide us by His Holy Spirit into a glorious eternity with Him. He did it all. He paid it all. No one ever HAS to go to HELL prepared for the devil and his evil angels.
HOWEVER, If a man or woman chooses not to follow God’s Spirit, Who is in the earth this very day, era and season, drawing, drawing them to Christ, then God is still God, Heaven is still Heavenly and He will still forever reign isn unfathomable joy, love , splendor, magnificence and happiness. Holy Spirit is not going to beat you up and drag you kicking and screaming into the Kingdom of God. In His infinite wisdom He may use the circumstances that you get yourself into, in your disobedience, to draw you to God but if you reject Him over and over then YOU HAVE CHOSEN your destiny.
You see, God wanted those backslidden, idolotrous Judah and Israel to come back to Him. He knew their horrendous fate if they did not. His Love would not allow Him to flick them off while there was still time and hope for their return to His love, even though they boldfaced lied to Him, pretending they loved Him, then cheated and rejected Him, and worshiped false gods on HIS altars. Abomination of abominations.
As I read and listen to accounts of people to whom God has given modern-day revelations of Hell, it shakes me to the very core and the buden of the Great Commissionis loomis large before me. Will I have the courage to “Not look at their faces” (Jer. 1:8), to resist rejection, to not fear confrontation and to open my mouth boldly to tell of God’s plan for Life and NOT Death? Paul says in 1 Cor.9:16, “Woe to me if I preach NOT the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ!” I feel a great urgency that the Lord is showing me for my part. It is a shaking and a moving and even while I am shaking I had better move and perform those things which Jesus has commissioned His disciples to do….to preach the Gospel to all nations….starting Here and starting Now.

  1. Yes, MG the Bible certainly does tell us of two distinct destinations that result from our choices and the character that we build now on earth.
    I read in Revelation 21:4 that for those who follow after Christ, in heaven God will wipe away every tear and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.
    But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

  2. MG, I have not read this book by Bill Wiese… about the Lord’s taking him to Hell for 23 minutes. What does he say hell is like? And, does he give scriptures to confirm his trip? Or, is it a novel?

  3. The book is written describing a true and real experience Bill Weise had on November 28, 1998 in which at 3:00A.M.,he was catapulted into Hell, his unspeakble torment by two hell’s angels assigned to mutilate him. I will quote a review…”He saw the searing flames of Hell, felt total isolation, hopelessness… the Lord not allowing him to recall during those 23 minutes, that he knew Jesus as his Savior. Bill Wiese experienced the putrid and rotting stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons and FINALLy the strong hand of the LORD lifting him out of the pit. Though it lasted just 23 minutes he returned with vivid details etched in his memory, forever. Since the life-changing experience, he has spent the last seven years studying the Scriptures, teaching and training Bible studies, and been a speaker on TV and Radio programs telling about the horrors of Hell and about the Lord Jesus christ.
    Yes, after each chapter he has several pages of Scriptures that identify the ordeal he went through, as confirmed by the Word of God. The Scriptures are LITERAL. We must believe the literal Word of God. The Lord Jesus told him that he was a vessel to be used by the Lord to warn the people of Christ’s imminent appearing.
    He said when he returned he was screaming to his wife Annette, Pray for me!! The Lord took me to Hell!! Pray that I do not lose my mind and take the fear from my mind.
    In the book by Choo Thomas, the Lord showed her Hell and she was ill for many days. She saw her parents in Hell because they did not know the Lord Jesus Christ. This made her very ill. The Lord had to heal her mind and heart of this awful scene that she saw.
    He also showed Choo a vision of the Rapture which is soon to come, as I believe I wrote in another comment earlier this year. She saw how many Christians were left behind. It made her terribly sad to see the faces of those who were not lifted up into the clouds with the LORD. She writes, ” I have heard many people say that they believe in God but not that Jesus is God. Please believe me when I say, if you don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God, there is NO salvation. Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ the Son.” (unquote) Jesus says, ‘I am the Way. the Truth and the Lief. No one comes to the Father (GOD) except by and through ME”
    Jesus told Bill Wiese to tell everyone of Hell and to tell them that “I AM COMING VERY VERY SOON” That was 1998!
    May we repent of any fears and unbelief in our hearts and prepare for His VERY VERY SOON coming. Maranatha, Lord Jeusus!

  4. The Insurance Policy for GOING TO HEAVEN AND NOT LIVING IN HELL is BLESSED ASSURANCE. ” Jesus is Mine Oh what a foretaste of glory (Heaven) divine. You can be an heir of salvation, the purchase of God. You must be born of His Spirit and washed in His blood. Then you can sing: This is my story, this is my song. Praising my Savior, all the day long (and for eternity, too). This can be YOUR story. This can be YOUR song. Praising the Savior all eternity long.” For whosever will receive Jesus as his/her Lord & Savior.
    Jesus told Choo Thomas that only the saved who were PURE IN HEART would spend eternity with Him. Those without guile and those who did not have a hidden agenda but worshiped Him in Spirit and in Truth. Only the obedient Christians would be with Him forever…those who obey His Word, and listen to and heed our FRIEND, our Guide and Counselor, the HOLY SPIRIT. That’s why Jesus sent the Holy Spirit after He ascended into Heaven to help us live obedient, joyful lives and prepare us as a BRIDE for the LORD JESUS CHRIST. We can choose to live etermally in Wedded Bliss as Jesus’ Bride or we can choose to live in dreadfulness, terrified. But Live eternally we will. We can choose which, NOW.

  5. In listening to Bible lessons on the forgiving of offenses among the brethren, citing Jesus’ example to us from the cross where HE forgave all those who had assaulted, tortured, slandered and finally killed Him, including us down through the ages. Unforgivingness is one of the things that keeps us from a Heavenly eternity and earmarks us for Hell. ‘For if you will not forgive neither will your Heavenly Father forgive you.’
    June Evans states that Jesus was our example of Forgiveness….one of the MANY things that she said, that resounded through my spirit was that when Jesus Christ looked down from the cross at His accusers and captors and asked for forgiveness for them, He quit being a victim and became a Victor and the Redeemer of the world. That is landmark!!
    I wrote this song a few years ago….

  6. Thank you MG for helping us to stay away from that pit you have spoken of here.

    Would vs. 15 here apply to hell! Revelation:22:14-15 ” Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. 15 Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.”

  7. I believe this was inspired by the Holy Spirit as I was driving to school one morning I thought it might make a great witnessing & salvation tract!

    God has been searching for you for a long time. In fact, all of your life. You see, He’s heard your cries of hurt, loneliness, failures, pain and confusion. He knows your hopes and dreams. He knows your feelings of hopelessness and the fear that they will never see fruition. He knows all about those plans that didn’t pan out. He know the tough breaks you’ve gotten in your life. Actually, He knows everything about YOU!
    And now He’s searched you out, personally and specifically to tell you how much He loves and cares about you and every detail of your life. In fact, do you know that He loves you so much that He gave the supreme sacrifice of His own Son’s life in your place so that if you choose to receive that ultimate gift of freedom from all guilt of mistakes, errors, wrong thinking, prejudices, bad choices, poverty, sin and sickness, you can become a member of the family of GOD…that is a child of the most high GOD. You see, you don’t have to be lonely or desperate, anymore. You don’t have to be a slave to bad habits and hurtful lifestyles. You don’t have to ,any longer, be ashamed of your reputation or of being a loser. God is asking you to consider His Son, Jesus Christ. He’s the ONE I told you about, the ONE Who died in your place. Consider His sacrifice of LOVE for you on the cross. Even when you didn’t have a clue as to Who He was or why He did it. Yes, even then, He had you on His mind and in His heart. You, personally! For you see, what He wants from you in return for His sacrifice of His life for yours, is……He wants a personal relationship with you!! Can you imagine that? The God of creation gave His life for you to set you free and take away your guilt of sinfulness, granting you forgiveness for all your wrongs, and now He wants to be personally involved with you? HE wants to be in your life? All He is asking of you for this personal relationship with Him, the Lord God of the universe, is YOUR HEART. He asks that you receive the forgivess that He purchased with His blood, turn away from hurtful and inappropriate practices and those things that go away from the law of perfect Love. In doing this He will take those away, forgive you your trespasses and will give to you His peace, His joy, His compassion and His everlasting love that will escort you into the Gates of Heaven for all eternity. Your life and your ultimate destiny will change dramatically.
    You may say, ” How can I, a human being, have a personal relationship
    with God ? A good question. Jesus made THE way for you and it is HIS Way. If you will call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, receive His forgiveness for all your past sins allow Him to be Lord of your life, He will come into your heart by His Holy Spirit and you will become a child of GOD
    So STOP, LOOK & LISTEN for the Lord has apprehended you and wants to pour out His love upon you, for He cares for you. Will you allow Him to take you, arrest you and make you a captive of everlasting LOVE?

    THis is a song that the Lord gave me a few years ago that describes the salvation message.
    THE WAY HOME (c)
    If you believe in Me as I believe in you
    If you will trust in Me and My Father, too
    If you’ll come out of the dark to a life that’s new
    There is a WAY HOME for you
    You’re like a little lamb who’s gone astray
    It’s getting darker now and you have lost your way
    If you will open your heart, you will hear Me say
    There is a WAY HOME for you…and it is MY WAY
    I cry out to you from a bloody cross
    To you who fear, to you the lost
    My life for yours is what it cost
    To make a WAY HOME for you
    Now LOVE has risen from the dead
    To give you life, as I have said
    It was MY Father’s precious blood I shed
    To make a WAY HOME for you
    And it is MY WAY.

  8. MG, thanks for sharing your song and compelling ‘tract’. God wants all His children home before nightfall. For “I must do the work of the one who sent me while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work.” John 9:4
    “In the same way, I tell you that there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10

  9. MG thank you for sharing this blog with us. I haven’t read this book. I did read THE DIVINE REVELATION OF HELL by Mary Baxter. I’m like Sara, I don’t want to go there. This book described hell as a body and in the heart of hell is Satan. There are gates in this body, that Satan’s demons are constantly coming in and going out of hell. When these demons leave hell, their mission is to destroy humans. Jesus took Mary into hell, so she could warn others. It has been a long time since I read this book, but I can still remember it. We do need to understand that Hell is a very real place and God loves us but He expects us to follow His rules. If we don’t then He will not allow us in Heaven. Hell is the ultimate punishment.
    2Peter2:4 “For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the day of judgement.”
    Luke 12:5 “But I’ll tell you whom to fear. Fear God, who has the power to kill you and then throw you into hell. Yes, he’s the one to fear.”
    Rev. 20:11-15 “And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. 12I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what htey had done, as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. 14Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. 15 And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
    Hell is real. It is punishment for the wrong deeds done. It is punishment for not believing in Jesus. It’s punishment for not living for God. Punishment forever and ever and ever. Lord please help us!!!

  10. Chickenfamrer, thanks for starting my day off with a real wake-up call. I get it no snooze alarms on this journey.
