Why people go to heaven or hell

By

Neville Salvetti

God is Pure Love and loves everyone equally, otherwise he would have the imperfection of partiality and/or bias and could not be God.  Rewards are not a result of Love but of service or God’s Love would be proportional to the reward.

Heaven and hell are a type of reward of service.  IF you obey and serve correctly your reward is heaven.  If you disobey and do not serve God correctly then your rewards is hell.  This choice of your degree of obedience to God is solely made by you and this is why you cannot blame anyone else for where you end up after death.

What follows is a summary of the reasons given by Jesus to people he took to heaven and hell as to why people go to hell.

When the reasons are all examined they can be summarized as follows:

  1. Their attitude to God resulted in either incorrect stewardship misusing what God had given them
  2. They did not believe Jesus meant what He said when He spoke of sin and its consequences on earth and in hell.
  3. They did not believe what Jesus said was required by a person who wanted to go to heaven.
  4. They did not believe either in heaven, hell, the devil or the salvation offered by God to them.

And primarily they deliberately did not repent of these things.  It is not the doing of them that is the problem.  It is not repenting of doing them once you realise you are sinning that sends you to hell.

SO in summary:

They would not forgive another their offence against them (Mat 6:14-15)

They like a sin so much they would not repent and give it up (Rev 3:5).

Not willing to reconcile to another you have offended is caused either by unforgiveness toward them or fear of t hem.  Jesus can help you with both so that they are not a reason for not reconciling to another.

In a sense sin is wrong stewardship of something:

            Towards God and His Things

            Towards those around us

            To our selves

            To the things God has given us to look after.

Correct stewardship is a result of complete obedience to God and of the expression of His quality of Love in all we do.  Loving service to God and others is a mark of the life of a follower of Jesus and is shown by their being a correct steward of what God has given them to be steward of.

Incorrect stewardship results in selfishness, lovelessness, lust and misuse of what God has given them to be steward of regardless of the damage or cost to another.

There are hundreds of sins listed in The Bible and rather than give a list of these I propose to give you some simple principles to determine if something is a sin.  Remember always that it is The Holy Spirit that defines and convicts that something is sin and not a person or the law of the land.

The tests are as follows:

The first test

Is it forbidden by The Bible?

If it is forbidden by The Bible you must not do it.  The Holy Spirit will draw to your attention that The Bible calls it sin if you do not realise it is mentioned in The Bible.  This is why we must study The Bible to see what God declares is sin.

Sin also fails one or all of the following tests:

Does it show God’s quality of Love(sins against this includes causing another to sin or ignoring the real need of another that you are able to satisfy).

Does it take Glory from God or a member of The Trinity.  This usually occurs through taking credit for something God has done or saying another has done something God has done.

Remember, sin is deliberate disobedience.  So if you do not know it is wrong and do it, it is not sin.  Once you know it is wrong and do it, then you risk hell if you deliberately do not stop doing it.

If you desire to go to heaven then you must not do the things Jesus spoke about that would take you to hell.

What follows is based on the comments Jesus made to people when He showed them hell so are straight “from the horse’s mouth” so to speak.

The first comment to make is that people who do not believe what Jesus said about sin and its consequences do not really believe in whom He is or they would obey Him.  So people go to hell because they ignore Jesus or did not really believe what He said He required of them so that He was not Lord of their life.

If the Lordship of Jesus is in place in your life you will not go to hell.

A major reason people do not go to hell is that they will not turn back from their sin.  They like it so much or are afraid to give it up.  Either way it leads to hell (Rev 3:5).

Another major reason is that they believe lies about what others said Jesus taught so that they ignore what He said He required of them.  They did not bother to see what The Bible said or the truth in it would have set them free from these lies. This is why it is important to do Bible study so that The Holy Spirit can show you the truths in it that will set you free from the errors taught by others.

It is important to make certain Jesus is Lord of every area of your life.  If you knowingly withhold something from His Lordship of your life, then you risk going to hell if you do not give it back to Him to be Lord of.

There is the reasoning that some sins are more bad than others and these smaller sins will not lose you your salvation.  Jesus said that sin is sin.  Whether it is big or small in the eyes of the offender, it is still sin in the eyes of God and the magnitude of the offence committed does not matter.  In other words murder and adultery are just as bad as a small white lie when you categorise sin

Unforgiveness is another reason for going to hell.  A woman shepherded a church for 35 Years but she would not forgive her husband.  That decision of a few seconds sentenced her to eternity in hell.  Jesus was not fully her Lord.  He was her Lord to the degree she wanted Him to be and not as He should have been.  She ignored the Holy Spirit warning her to repent till she quenched The Holy Spirit and by this blasphemed Him and wound up in hell for this as well.

People also end up in hell for not obeying laws of the land that do not contradict the laws of Jesus.  For example: deliberate speeding, disobeying council parking laws or tax evasion, etc, if not repented of will get you into hell as you are deliberately disobeying Jesus who said to give to the government what is properly theirs.

Even if they are a godless, invading army, as long as they do not ask you to do things that are against The Law of God, you must obey them.  After all one of the last  judgments over a natin is to give its control to another power and man y nations are approaching that if not there already.

In a sense it all comes down to how much you want to believe and obey the Words of Jesus.  According to how you believe and obey them will be your rewards and salvation.  Before you will obey them you must believe them and if you have trouble obeying them then examine your faith in Jesus, who He is and what you believe He has said.

Jesus said the no idolater or fornicator will enter heaven.  If you do not believe anything of what Jesus said, then you become your own God in that area and an idolater, worshiping what you believe, or you would do what Jesus said.

If you do not give up worldly things and prefer them to what Jesus said you are to do, you are a fornicator with the things of Satan, lying in bed with his things and rejecting that which Jesus desires you to do.  This will express itself as selfish indulgence in things, sexual, food, anything that will give you pleasure.

People not giving what God requires them to give or using these gifts for personal things and not for the purposes of God are also in hell.  There are many pastors in hell who used the offerings given to the church for their personal use and not for the work of Jesus.  Greed will get you into hell, regardless of what is being coveted.

Not giving what God wants you to give will bring a curse upon you and remove any blessing you would have had from this giving.  You are not stealing from the church but are stealing from God, which makes it far more serious than just depriving man of the gift. It is also an abuse of stewardship and Jesus said stewards must be faithful in what they do.

Not believing in the Power of The Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues or in the Baptism of The Holy Spirit can also have you end up in hell.  If you do not believe in a personal Holy Spirit, or that He is a person, how can you be led by Him to live as Jesus desires you to live?  You are denying Him and His role and in a sense you are quenching Him and that can take you to hell.

People are also misusing The bible by using it to back-up wrong things they are doing and declaring it is Biblical because of the way they interpret The Bible.

It is what you do after you are saved that shows whether you really follow Jesus or not and whether or not you are going to heaven or hell.

Believing another than Jesus saves you will also get you into hell.  Jesus is the only way to heaven and apart from him there is no other.

Believing the Virgin Mary can save you is wrong.  Jesus showed her to someone who went to heaven crying, because they were praying to her instead of Jesus and stating she did things only Jesus did, of which salvation is one.

Jesus said this and not a man so it is Worth listening to what He said about Mary and the saints.  He also said Purgatory was a lie of the devil, formulated by a pope.  You die and go to face His judgment.  There is no place else to go to after death.

Another danger is not to warn another they are going to hell.  In a sense it is denying Jesus by not telling others of Him.  Anyone who denies Jesus before another in any way will end up in hell.  He will be denied by Jesus as belonging to Him when He faces The Father for his eternal judgment. So if Jesus tells you to warn another about hell or their need of His salvation and you do not do it, then you have sinned.

It does not matter what a denomination, church, organisation or people say about things or what you are doing.  It only matters what Jesus says about it.

Jesus also warned of watching modern cartoons as spirits of rebellion are in them and attach themselves to the children watching them. The same could be said of movies as well.  The demons cause the children to be rebellious to their parents and the children end up in hell when they die unless they repent.  Many modern cartoon characters are actually demons that torment the children once they end up in hell. This why Jesus warned parents to raise up their children in a Godly way.\

Television, followed by movies are Satan’s main way of training children to think the way he desires them too.  Public education and the training they receive at home are the next main areas he works on.

Parents who do not raise up their children in a Godly way will have to explain to Jesus the reasons for their bad stewardship of their children.

Over and over again Jesus declared only those that are holy will enter heaven.  Holiness involves the rejection of all that Satan offers you and the embracing of all that Jesus requires of you.

He advises women to care for their hair as that is the veil He has given them as a covering.  In heaven, all women have long, beautiful hair.

He said to Angelica Zambrano in regard to Christians:

“Daughter, My people no longer spread the gospel.  My people no longer fast.  My people no longer go to the streets to distribute tracts telling the truth.  My people are now ashamed.  Go and tell My people to return to the old paths. 

My people no longer do as they did before.  My people no longer praise, no longer worship Me; no longer seek Me as before.  That is why I told you, Daughter, to go and tell My people to seek Me, for I will go, I will go, I will go - for a people that seeks Me in spirit and in truth, for a people that are ready, for a holy people!"

He has told a few people that His church has lost its way and is dead needs to go back to what it was in the beginning, that they have let the world come into the church and pollute it.

Satan has had nearly 2000 years to train the church into his mould and has succeeded in doing much that perverts the faith it originally had.

Jesus showed that homosexuals and lesbians have a place in hell, if they do not repent and it is far more serious for priests, ministers, nuns and similar who commit these things as they are punished more severely for knowing Jesus and doing these things.

People who live together for sexual purposes but do not get married, also end up in hell for misuse of sex.  Sex was designed for married people and ordained by God for them, so those outside of marriage sin if they have sex.

Marriage does not require a ceremony by a church r by a government but an agreement between two people to become husband and wife with a witness to it.  This is how it was in the beginning until the church took over because so many married in haste and repented in leisure that the church  as overrun by people who had married but wanted to divorce.

Abortion is hated by Jesus but He will forgive anyone involved who repents of having an abortion.  Aborted children go to heaven and people who have aborted them will be reconciled with them if they go to heaven.

Drunkards are in hell as well as those who steal, lie, cheat and covet what belongs to another unless they repent and make Jesus Lord of all their life. All these are sins against the Law of Love and stewardship of another.

It need not be said, but I will mention it anyway, anyone practicing Satanism, witchcraft of any new age beliefs will end up in hell unless they turn to Jesus and often have pride of place in hell as a trophy of Satan.

Jesus gave Angelica Zambrano a warning for Christians on earth:

“I want to give you this message when going back to Earth, go and tell My people to seek Me in spirit and in truth.  Go and tell My people to live in holiness.  Go and tell My people it is the time, it is time to meditate the Holy Word. I do not only want My people to read, but to scrutinize My Holy Word.  Because Daughter, this is what is happening on Earth, on Earth day after day apostasy is multiplying, yet there are many of My children, many of My chosen ones that will be deceived. Daughter, tell My people to scrutinize My Holy Word so they cannot be deceived and to seek My presence in spirit and truth.”

What Jesus said to By Rev. Park, Yong Gyu needs to be quoted in full below:

“I want you to know if you are arrogant and prideful, you will bring curses upon yourself. (This also includes those that become self-important and displace Jesus, taking Glory that is rightfully His ed.).

In regard to people in heaven: “They are the ones who had served God faithfully and trusted in Jesus by obeying and following the lead of the Holy Spirit with all their heart. Their bodies are dead on Earth. They are now the souls heading toward Heaven.”

The Lord then asked me five questions.

  1. “How much time did you spend reading the Word (bible)?
  2. How much did you give of offerings?
  3. How many times have you evangelized to people?
  4. Did you tithe properly?
  5. How much time did you spend in prayer?”

I could not answer the fifth question. The Lord rebuked me for the fifth question.

(Later on in the vision when talking about the material used to build our mansions in heaven):

“The angels replied, “There are seven things one must do to build up their materials to build their home.

  1. The first is their accumulation of worship and praise to God.
  2. The second is their time spent reading the bible.
  3. Third, their time spent praying.
  4. Fourth, their time spent evangelizing to people.
  5. Fifth, one’s offering to the Lord.
  6. Sixth, their obedient tithes to God.
  7. Lastly, their time spent serving the church in any way.

These are the deeds or works of obedience in which one accumulates materials for their Heavenly home. If one is lacking in these areas, they will have no materials to build their home.”

(The church referred to is His Body and not denominational or similar types of churches.  One also must realise that there is a difference between salvation and rewards.  There are many pastors in heaven who do not have homes as they had their rewards on earth by the way people praised them and rewarded them for their work.  Later on in the vision he was shown a large building like a chicken coop for pastors who had no rewards:

“I specifically picked out one pastor and asked the angel, “I know that Korean pastor! I know how famous he was and the work he had done for the Lord. Why is he here? I do not understand.”

The angels answered, “He never provided any building materials for his home. This is why he is living in a community home.”

I asked out of curiosity, “How did this happen? Why did he not have any materials?”  The angel answered, “While he was a pastor performing the functions as a pastor, he had loved to be complimented by the people. He had loved to be honored. He had loved to be served. There was no sacrifice and servitude on his part.”   This particular pastor was greatly honored in Korea and is an icon within the Korean Christian history. But he had no reward!!

You pastor out there, please listen! You have to lead people to more than just Sunday morning services. You must visit them in their homes. You must take care of the poor, the lame and old. The pastors who have served without sacrificing their lives and loved to be honored have no reward in Heaven. (Matt 23:5-12)”

In regard to obtaining building material some further comments were made:

“What are the requirements for Christians to receive such beautiful homes in Heaven?

 First, we have to evangelize to as many people as possible. How should we evangelize? The angel told me, “Assume there is an unbeliever who does not know the Lord. The moment you decide to evangelize to that particular person, the building materials for your homes will be provided. As you unceasingly pray for their salvation, more building materials are provided. You must continue to check up on them, visiting them and continue your evangelizing.  This will add more materials to your home. If a person says he/she cannot make it to church because they do not have nice clothes, then you must provide them with some. If the person says he/she does not have a bible, you must provide one. If a person says he/she does not have glasses to read, you must provide it for them. You must provide whatever you are able too so this person can be led to the Lord. Those who live in the best homes are those who had evangelized many times.”

Second, those who also have a large home are those who have built church buildings or other buildings for Kingdom purpose with their possessions and resources.”

There is also the danger of going to hell for not evangelising your family and by this not proclaiming Jesus to them (and if deliberately done then it is a form of denying Him).

(More on Pastors, elders and deacons in hellJ

I then saw many pastors, elders, and deacons in Hell. I asked the angel, “I know them. They had served God faithfully while on the Earth. They had died some time ago. We all had thought they were in Heaven with God. But now, I see them all in Hell and they are crying out that it is so hot! Why are they here?” There were so many pastors, elders, deacons and all other lay believers.

The angel answered, “Pastor Park Yong Gyu, a person can appear to be a true follower of Christ on the outside but God knows the heart.

THEY DID NOT KEEP SUNDAYS HOLY. IN FACT, THEY HAD LOVED TO MAKE MONEY ON SUNDAYS. (Jer. 17:27)

Many of the deacons and elders had criticized the sermon of their pastors.

 (PS. 105:15) (Num 12:8-9)

THEY DID NOT TITHE PROPERLY. (Malachi 3:9)

THEY DID NOT PRAY.

They had not evangelized to people at all. (Ezekiel 33:6)

Many of these elders and deacons had harassed their pastors and would come against their authority. They had interfered with the pastor’s duty and business.  (Num. 16)

On their death beds, they thought they had done a good job so they did not repent of those things. This is why they were thrown in the fires of Hell.

Later on:

I saw the elders, deacons, and other lay believers tormented by the demons. The demons made a hole in their tongues and placed wires through the tongues of one another. Then the demons dragged the people with the wire. I asked again, “What did they do on Earth?” The angel answered, “They had committed four different types of sin.

First, they had criticized their pastors. They would speak negative things about their pastors. They were back biting and ridiculing their pastors.

(James 3:6) (Matt 12:37)

The angel continued, “Second, they insulted the church with their words. They had harassed other Christians to the point where even the faithful ones were affected and they stopped attending church and even caused some to stop believing. They did all they could to stop faithful Christians from doing God’s work. These wicked ones caused many faithful to stumble. Lastly, there are spouses who drank alcohol and were abusive to their family members.

You must also be careful what you say as gossipers, slanderers, backstabbers and those that malign others will end up in hell if they do not repent.  We are always to say sound speech that cannot be condemned by Jesus (Matt 12:36). (end of quote).

In a sense, what you say is a result of what you think and as a steward of your mind you are only to use it for the purpose of God and not for the purposes of self or the world (Satan).

Children who do not obey their parents but rebel against them or will not be reconciled to them (unforgiveness) will end up in hell.

It must be added that any who trade using the Mark of The Best will also go to hell, regardless of the reason for using it.

At times, Jesus showed two or more people together in hell.  They had sinned together and were blaming each other for being in hell.  This shows the importance of choosing friends who live godly lives so that you will be encouraged in your Christian walk and not be led astray by them and end up in hell.

If you appreciate what God has done for you and are thankful to Him for these things, you will Love Him and not do that which will hurt Him (sin).  This is an important reason why people do not go to hell, they Love Jesus and desire to do His will out of appreciation and gratefulness for all He has done for them.

I reproduce this in full without any alteration as it is too important to not do so:

6 Messages to the Church

By: Pastor Brani Duyon

The Angel then said, “Lord, I went to His house on earth when he was sick, nevertheless He is now better.” Jesus replied, “yes, I heard and saw what happened to him.” The Angel continued, “during that time, I heard his wife pray for Your help.  She prayed: “Lord, help us, please don’t take him now because we are not ready for him leaving us yet.” That was her prayer, Lord.” Jesus then said, “I know everything.  His wife is a God-fearing woman.  She is faithful to Me and diligent in prayer.” Then my soul cried again thinking of my wife’s faithfulness to God.

Jesus spoke to me, “when you go back to earth tell all My children these messages” (There were SIX MESSAGES which Jesus had given to me):

FIRST MESSAGE:
“Tell My children, they must believe in Me with all their heart, their strength, and their mind.  Those who are worried and doubtful will not get in here,”
said the Lord Jesus.

SECOND MESSAGE:
“Tell My Children, they must be faithful to come to the Church service, because that is the time when I will shine over their faces and they will look for My face.  I will be very pleased to see My children worshipping at Church,”
said the Lord Jesus

THIRD MESSAGE:
“Tell My Children, they must be faithful to pray, do My will, and live with My words,”
said the Lord Jesus

FOURTH MESSAGE:
“Tell My children, they must be obedient to give tithes and offerings,"
said the Lord Jesus.

(While Jesus was giving me this message, He said “My child, look there” He showed me beautiful houses which are ready for His children.  “My child, these houses are ready, I prepared for all My children that believe and are obedient to Me.” Then He showed me incomplete houses.  I asked, “Lord, why are these houses not yet completed?” The Lord Jesus said “My child, these houses belong to My children that are not generous giving tithe and offerings.  These houses will be ready and completed after My children give more tithes and offerings in My House.”

FIFTH MESSAGE:
“Tell My children, they must put in prayer all their wealth to Me for protection and blessing while they are still on Earth, so that when I come to Earth for the second time, they will not be attached to their Earthly wealth.  Remember the story of Lot’s wife,”
said the Lord Jesus.

SIXTH MESSAGE:
“Tell My children, they must be ready and alert, because I will be coming soon.  Sooner than people expect!”
 said the Lord Jesus,

What a Young Korean Artist saw and drew

(The pictures are graphic and I am using her own words, which is why some things need to be described as the picture shows the torment she is describing.  These were on the web site of www.spirit.lessons.com in the public domain.  However it has been removed since and she may be now writing a book on her experiences but I have not seen one yet.  This was copied when it was in the public domain so is not copyright.)

In 2009, a young Korean artist who was attending an all-night prayer meeting, was visited by Jesus Christ. She was taken to see Hell and told by Jesus to draw what she saw, so that the world would know.

Artist Speaking: “As I was praying all night long, I was able to love Jesus more than ever. One day, Jesus came and said in my Heart, I thought I was going to visit heaven, but instead, we visited Hell.

As I followed Jesus, I cried the whole time.  I then began to hear moans, screams, and wailing sounds.

Most people have a misconception about Hell. They are deluded and think that if they “Only Believe in Jesus Christ,” they will end up in Heaven. Some even think that once they die, there is nothing afterwards.

People believe as they think, and therefore they live their lives as they please.

Jesus also showed me that as people watch violent secular movies, demons would actually torment the person’s soul without the person realizing it. As a person watches the scenes from TV, their soul is tormented and wounded. Watching secular TV does not help Christians develop a loving relationship with our bridegroom Jesus.

I saw that when people were smoking and drinking, that spirits of snakes filled the alcoholic drinks and the cigarette smoke.

As Jesus witnessed the sins committed by man, He cried. Satan and his demons would tie the bodies of sinners so tight with iron chains to control them. Therefore sinners would go deeper and deeper in sin.

I am pleading with you not to commit sin. DO NOT LIVE as you desire. In Hell, the senses are hundreds of times more vivid than what we feel on Earth. The pain is more severe.

Jesus showed me how people fall into Hell.

Jesus: I see countless people falling into the eternal deep sea of the fire of Hell every single day…Please tell the people what you have witnessed in Hell! You must tell them about Hell! Tell people how awful and gruesome Hell is! You must paint the scene of Hell as if you are within my heart. Draw the scenes with My aching heart!

They are falling into the Fire of Hell.

Draw it with My aching heart….

He felt such pity for people who were falling into Hell every single day!

As I was painting the scenes of Hell, Satan attacked me severely.  But I wanted to show the world about Hell and the heart of Jesus through these paintings.

I saw people being tormented on a cross.

I saw people who did not want to eat the bread of life (God’s Word). (They were being force fed snakes Ed.)

There were people who would not discuss the things of their lives with Jesus, but made their own decisions, and followed their own will. (They were being torn apart by demons Ed.)

There were people who drank and ate prohibited things. (They were having an obnoxious liquid forcefully poured down their throat Ed.)

Jesus: Please tell people who hurt each other’s hearts by their words that they must not hurt or wound their brothers/sisters in Christ.  They must not say things without care or love. (These people were continually stabbed in the mouth Ed.)

How murderers, rapists and child kidnappers will be tormented. (They were speared continuously while being devoured by flames Ed.)

The punishment for liars. (They were continuously having hot coals shovelled into their mouths)

Those people who stole money will be penetrated by arrows and needles. (Every part of their body was covered with inserted needles and there were so many they looked like they were fuzzy hairs on the person. Ed.)

Insects in Hell.

These insects are for people who committed sins by their thoughts. They were filled with their own thoughts and knowledge. Covered by countless maggots, their entire body is wounded by large insects; going in and out of the whole body, mouth, ears and head.

These people were filled with their own thoughts and knowledge. (Their head and brain was devoured constantly by maggot like insects Ed)

These people were obstinate in their thinking. They thought, “why would Jesus work in my life?  Who am I?  I don’t think He loves me.  I am very evil.  I don’t think He would love someone like me.”
They were also people who violated God’s word and ignore God’s commandments. They will be placed in an area similar to a frying pan, which was burning with Hell fire.

This torment was for those Christians who did not share the gospel. They did not evangelize the good news to the lost. They ignored their calling. (They were in a fire and strangled all the time as they did not use their throat and voice box for Jesus Ed).

Those people who do not attempt to align their thoughts with God’s will end up in Hell. We must fix our minds and thoughts on God.

This torment was for the people who had ignored God’s word and still continued to commit sin. They are the ones who performed evil in the eyes of the Lord. (They were stabbed and had their body slice continuously Ed)

For those who worshiped idols, those that had evil thoughts and were stubborn in their ways. (They had snakes choking their throat and biting their head continuously Ed.)

Grumblers and complainers also wound up in Hell. (They were tied to a wall or pillar and were eaten by something Ed.)

There is a place in Hell for men who cheated on their spouses. For those who became gay or bisexual. They were penetrated by knives and spears. (Homosexual and similar have been seen by another person chained to others and submerged in a river of lava Ed.)

For those who became sexually corrupt, their private parts were being continually pierced by demons.

Hell is endless, the torments are endless

Jesus said, “Focus on Me. You must focus only Me.

Ricardo Cid

He said, “Ricardo, Ricardo pray for my church! My church isn't the same anymore!! My church on the earth has changed. My church has lost its faith. My church doesn't believe in me or my existence! Tell my church that I exist!! Intercede for my church, because my church doesn't pray or fast anymore!

And the demons said, “We've tried to destroy the church, but we can't because when we kill one, then thousands rise up to replace that death!” Since the beginning of the church, Satan has tried to destroy it, the church that preaches the true Gospel and does the work of God, but he can't because the Lord Jesus protects us! Glory to God! Then the demons said, “Let's do something new, let's go inside churches, because there are many in the churches that belong to us! We are going to use these people to spread gossip and division amongst the brethren in church. We will cause churches to fall by gossip and the Holy Spirit will be grieved and leave the church.” The devil goes everywhere looking to destroy those who love the justice of God. Just like in this scripture verse:

BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY! ONLY THE HOLY ONES WILL ENTER THIS PLACE! FOR WITHOUT HOLINESS NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD.” Without holiness, no one will see him.

He told me, “Come, walk with me and I will show you something great.” We looked down from the ground and could see the earth and all that was done upon the earth. Jesus said, “I am able to see everything that my church does!” He knows everything that we do and I was able to see many of you from heaven. Jesus told me, “Look at my church!” and I saw brothers against brothers, and churches against other churches. Jesus then told me, “My church has lost their faith, they don't want to believe in me, wickedness has multiplied on the earth and people don't want to believe that I exist. Tell my people I am going to do something great on the earth! My church is backsliding instead of growing." The Lord started to cry over His church and He said, “This church is not my church!” I said, “Lord, don't talk that way! Of course we are your church.” Then the Lord replied, “No, my church walks in miraculous power and signs and wonders! My church has decreased! However, tell them, I will be back to raise them again!

But, in my church there are many thieves who steal my tithes and offerings! Tell my people that no thief will enter my kingdom in heaven

From what was shown too Bernarda Fernandez,

The Bible states clearly that drunker will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21).

I asked Him: "ARE THERE CHRISTIANS IN THIS HELL?", He answered: "Yes, do you know why? They believed in Me but they did not walk according to my Word.

Tell my people that it's time they lived a holy life before my Father, before the devil and before the world. Let the world know the devil has no right to accuse my people; and let the world not pointing finger at my people.

It's high time we sought holiness and consecration (1 Peter 1: 14-16)"

I am going to show you the condition in which my people live in these last days they've got left". The Lord told me: "Be very careful about the things I'm going to show you". I saw Christians who were weak and tired.

The Lord asked me this question: "Do you believe that I can take this Church away in its present state?" Then He told me, "Christians that I will take away with me will be glorious, triumphant, spotless, blameless. Among my people there are lies, lack of love, my people is divided. I showed you the condition of Christians in these last days; Now I'm going to show you how the early Church lived. Those brothers and sisters were filled with the glory of God. They constantly fasted and prayed; they preached my word without any fear. Whereas present Christians think that I've changed, they also think that the Holy Spirit has changed. The big mistake of Christians today is the fact that they live a routine life, planned by human being. Therefore they've forgotten that the messages are from the Holy Spirit and from above. Tell my servants, the pastors that time has come to put behind those routine's programs. If they do, you will see the power of God in your midst, the Holy Spirit who was manifest in the early Church. He will perform signs, miracles and wonders in great number, causing the dead to rise. The Holy Spirit is still the same, it's you who have changed".

Christians, it's high time you came back to the life of the early Church.

I asked the Lord:

"How is it that your people have been left so numerous in the great tribulation? How is it that there are also pastors among them, those who preached your word?"

Jesus answered: "Yes, they had preached my word, but they were not living in accordance with my word. Then the Lord allowed me to see another multitude of pastors, and He told me: "Those pastors were not preaching my word as it is written. They thought that my word was not adapted to their century. They had too much favor towards those who were given a lot of tithes, because they were more interested in materials. Go and tell my servants that I am the One who called them, and that Silver and Gold belong to me and I give them according to my greatness and glory. Tell them to preach my word as it is written. They are many, those who give another interpretation to my word. My word is my word, and no one can change it. It must be preached as it is written. There are many among my people who distort my word for their own profit ".

The Lord called a very beautiful woman with an unspeakable beauty, like all those I saw there, and He told me: "This is Mary! Go and tell everybody that Mary is not the Queen of heaven. The King of heaven is I, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords; the One who says: "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIVE. (John 14: 6-7). Go and tell this BLINDFOLDED MINKIND that there no purgatory, for if there was one, I would have shown you. Instead, there is hell, the lake of fire, the precious Jerusalem, and the paradise which I showed you. But tell them that there is no purgatory; tell them that IT'S A LIE FROM THE DEVIL, THERE IS NO PURGATORY".

Concluding comments on what Jesus said about the church

For Jesus to say what He said about the church means the reasons people go to church must not be correct.  This means people may need to rethink why they are going to church.

We need to be led by The Holy Spirit in all we do so that we always have the correct reasons for doing things.  Jesus said that all His people will be led by The Holy Spirit so that they would do His Will in all things.  So we need to learn how to hear The Holy Spirit.

We need to listen to The Holy Spirit so that we will go to church for the correct reasons and relate to everyone as we should.

After the Rapture

These scenes from after the rapture, shown to Jannet Balderas Canela, are a warning to Christians to live a life worthy of being caught up in The Rapture so that they are not left behind.

“After that we arrived at the Throne of God, and the Lord said, "Servant, come here."  We went out of the Throne room and arrived at a place with a very tiny window.  The Lord said, "Servant, now look down."   I saw terrible desolation, such tremendous desolation; the whole Earth was desolate and full of pain.  The Lord said, "Look servant, this is what is going to be after I have taken My people from the Earth, this will be after My coming, this will be when My church is here with Me."   I saw such tremendous desolation.

I saw people that were celebrating one moment, but then, I saw a father looking for his son, a mother looking for her daughters, but they couldn't find them, because Almighty God had taken them.  Relatives were looking for other relatives but they could not find them.  People were looking for their neighbours but couldn't find them, because the Lord had taken them up with Him.

Something terrible what was happening over all the Earth.  I saw a pastor running from one place to another, and I asked the Lord, "Lord, why does that man run from one place to another?"  The Lord replied, "Servant, this man was a pastor, but because he thought that I was going to delay, he was left behind.  He did not think that I was going to come now, he thought that it was going to take a long time before I would come back, and that is why he was left behind."  The pastor was running all over, saying "Lord, why was I left behind? If I am a pastor, if I have a position in the church, and the church is gone, I am left behind? Why have I been left behind?"  The Lord said, "Servant, I can't do anything now, he thought My coming was going to delay, well, he was left behind."

I saw how that man was persecuted.  He said, "The only thing I want is to be taken with Christ!  The only thing that I want is to be with the Lord because I do not want to be here and suffer in the great tribulation!"  He kept running from place to place and asking himself, "Why was I left behind? Take me with You Lord! I don't want to be here and suffer!"  The Lord said, "Servant, there is nothing I can do now, for a long time I talked with him and told him that I was going to come very soon, but he didn't believe me, well, now he is left behind."

I saw many other people running all over.  So many people were running, desperate trying to find peace but they could not find it.  They were shouting, "We want the Word of life!  We are thirsty of the Word of God!" But it was already too late, because the Lord had taken the church with Him.

I saw so many young girls and boys running through the bushes, running through the mountains trying to find peace.  They wanted peace but they could not find it.  The Lord told me why, "Servant I have already taken My church, and now Satan is the one in control."  Satan was already ruling over the Earth and there was torment over all the Earth!  People were running from place to place.  People wanted to eat each other alive, and pull out each other's hair.  They blamed each other and hurt each other, because they wanted to find peace, but they couldn't find it!  It wasn't possible because the Lord had already taken His church.

Such a terrible time on Earth, I saw such horrifying things. So many people were hurting each other, saying, "We want love! We want peace!"  But it was too late!  The Lord told me, "Look My servant, I talked to them, I spend time knocking at the hearts of these people, but they did not want to look for Me.  Well, now they are left behind, and there is nothing I can do for them now.  Why, because I have already taken My church with Me.  While all My people are with Me in heaven enjoying the marriage of the Lamb, all these people here will suffer great pain, and there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  For they did not want to obey My Word, they preferred to make fun and criticize My Word."

A problem is that many do not believe in hell or the devil or that a Christian can lose their salvation.  Jesus plainly said that you must endure until the end of your life if you would go to heaven and that you can lose your salvation through not repenting of disobedience or being casual about your obedience (Rev 3:5).

Perhaps the greatest comment on hell and judgment, as the reasons for going there, was given by Jesus in Matt 25:31 ff:

Mat 25:31 But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy cherubs with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

Mat 25:32 And before Him shall be gathered all the nations; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

Mat 25:33 And indeed He will set the sheep off His right, but the goats off the left hand.

Mat 25:34 Then the King will say to those on His right, Come, the blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Mat 25:35 For I hungered, and you gave Me food to eat; I thirsted, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you took Me in;

Mat 25:36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.

Mat 25:37 Then the righteous will answer, saying, Master, when did we see You hungry, and fed You; or thirsting, and gave You drink?

Mat 25:38 And when did we see You a stranger, and took You in; or naked, and clothed You?

Mat 25:39 And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came to You?

Mat 25:40 And answering, the King will say to them, Truly I say to you, In so far as you did it to one of these, the least of My brothers, you did it to Me.

Mat 25:41 Then He will also say to those on His left, Go away from Me, cursed ones, into the everlasting fire having been prepared for the Devil and his cherubs.

Mat 25:42 For I hungered, and you did not give Me a thing to eat. I thirsted and you did not give Me a thing to drink;

Mat 25:43 I was a stranger, and you did not take Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.

Mat 25:44 Then they also will answer Him, saying, Master, when did we see You hungering, or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to You?

Mat 25:45 Then He will answer them, saying, Truly I say to you, in so far as you did not do it to one of these, the least, neither did you do it to Me.

Mat 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.

Every time you do something of eternal significance, a recording angel is there to record it and take it to the records of your life held in heaven. There is nothing done that is not recorded in heaven.

Perhaps the most illuminating comments comes from a lost soul in hell who gave them in a vision John Bunyan had of hell.

A Lost Soul Speaks

“Our miseries in this infernal dungeon are of two kinds: what we have lost, and what we suffer. I will first speak about what we have lost.

1. In this sad dark place of misery and sorrow, we have lost the presence of the ever blessed God. This is what makes this dungeon hell. Though we had lost a thousand worlds, it would not be as important as this one greatest loss. Could we but see the least glimpse of His favour here, we might be happy; but have lost it to our everlasting woe.

2. Here we have also lost the company of saints and angels, and instead have nothing but tormenting devils.

3. Here we have lost heaven, too, the centre of blessedness. There is a deep gulf between us and heaven, so that we are shut out from it forever. Those everlasting gates that let the redeemed into heaven are now for ever shut against us.

4. To make our wretchedness far worse, we have lost the hope of ever obtaining a better condition. This makes us truly hopeless. Well may our hearts now break, since we are both without hope and help. This is what we have lost; and if we think of these things, it is enough to tear and gnaw upon our miserable souls forever. Yet, oh, that this were all that our torments were!

But we are also tormented by suffering and pain, as I will try to explain to you now.

1. First, we undergo a variety of torments. We are tormented here a thousand, no, ten thousand different ways. Those that suffer upon the earth seldom have more than one affliction at a time. But if they had ulcers, gallstones, headaches, and fever all at the same time, would they not think they were very miserable? Yet all those together are but like the biting of a flea compared to those intolerable, sharp pains that we endure. Here we have all the sufferings of hell. Here is an unquenchable fire which burns us; a lake of burning brimstone that ever chokes us; and eternal chains that bind us. Here there is utter darkness to frighten us, and a worm of conscience that gnaws upon us everlastingly. Any one of these is worse to bear than all the torments that mankind ever felt on earth!

2. But our torments here are not only various, but are also complete. They afflict every part of the body, and torment all the powers of the soul. This makes what we suffer the worst of tortures. In those sicknesses which men have on earth, though some members of their bodies will suffer, yet other parts will have no pain. Here it is different; every member of the soul and body suffers at the same time.

“Our eyes are tormented here with the sight of devils who appear in all the horrible shapes and black appearances that sin can give them. Our ears are continually tormented with the loud continual yelling of the damned. Our nostrils are smothered with sulfurous flames; our tongues with burning blisters; and the whole body is rolled in flames of liquid fire. All the powers and faculties of our souls are also tormented here. The imagination suffers with the thoughts of our present pain and the memory of the heaven we have lost. Our minds are tormented as we remember how foolishly we spent our precious time on earth. Our understanding is tormented with the thoughts of our past pleasures, present pains, and future sorrows, which are to last forever. And our consciences are tormented with a continual gnawing worm.

3. Another thing that makes our misery so awful is the sharpness of our torments. The fire that burns us is so violent that all the water in the sea can never quench it. The pains we suffer here are so extreme that it is impossible for anyone to know them except the damned.

4. Another part of our misery is the ceaselessness of our torments. As various, as complete, and as extremely violent as they are, they are also continual. We have no rest from them. If there were any relaxation, it might be some relief. But there is no easing of our torments, and what we suffer now we must suffer forever.

5. The society or company we have here is another part of our misery. Tormenting devils and tormented souls are all our company. Dreadful shrieks, howlings, and fearful cursing are our continual conversation because of the fierceness of our pain.

6. The place we are in also increases our sufferings. It is the completion of all misery, a prison, a dungeon, a bottomless pit, a lake of brimstone, a furnace of fire that burns to eternity, the blackness of darkness for ever; and lastly, hell itself. Such a wretched place as this can only increase our wretchedness.

7. The cruelty of our tormentors is another thing that adds to our sufferings. Our tormentors are devils in whom there is no pity. While they are tormented themselves, they still take pleasure in tormenting us.

8. All those sufferings that I have recounted are very grievous. But that which makes them the most grievous is that they shall always be forever. All of our intolerable sufferings shall last to all eternity! ‘Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire,’ is what continually sounds in my ears. Oh, that I could reverse that fatal sentence! Oh, if there was but a bare possibility of salvation! This is the miserable situation we are in, and shall be in forever.”

Then turning to the demon that tortured him he said, “But I also came here through your temptations, you cursed devil. You were the one that had tempted me to do all of my sins; and now you would reproach me? You say you never had a Savior offered to you; but you should also remember that you never had a tempter such as you have always been to me.”

To this the devil scornfully replied, “It was my business to lead you here! You had often been warned of this by your preacher. You were plainly told that we sought your ruin, and go about continually like roaring lions, seeking whom we could devour. I was often afraid you that would believe them, as several other souls did, to our great disappointment. But you were willing to do what we wanted; and since you have done our work it is but reasonable that we should pay you wages.” Then the fiend tormented him again and caused him to roar out so horribly that I could no longer stay to hear him, so I passed on.

Said he, “These wretches well deserve their punishment. They tried to teach others the right road to heaven, while they were so in love with hell that they came here. These are those souls that have been our great helpers upon the earth, and therefore they deserve our special attention in hell. We use our full diligence to give everyone their utmost share of torments, for they not only have their own sins to answer for, but also all the sins of those whom they led astray both by their doctrine and example.”

Satan’s smokescreen

Satan is the god of this world and uses the world system to try and have Christians think the way he needs them too so he can control them. Around you there are either godly or ungodly things so you need to know whether something is godly or ungodly.

He can only control you if you accepts what he places in or on you and he uses his demons and the world system he has created to try and influence you to accept what he desires you to do for him.

Through his worldly smokescreen Satan implies what you see is normal and by this tries to influence Christians through peer pressure. It tries to tell you that something is able to be done, even though it may seem to be wrong, because everyone else is doing it.

He uses his worldly smokescreens to hide Hell, himself and his demons, The Kingdom, Jesus and the things God desires you to do.

He has to convince you that what he offers you is better than what Jesus offers you, that his lifestyle is more desirable and more important than the one Jesus requires of you. He does this through various means of which television, movies, magazines and other visual media are the main ways.

Satan has to use the inputs around you to try and shape your way of thinking to what he desires it to be. This is why you need to examine the sources of the inputs to see if they are from God or Satan.

Never get angry, react, reason or assume anything. Always ask The Holy Spirit what to do as He see can see the whole situation and can advise you, from His superior viewpoint, what to do.

Satan may have shaped some of your assumptions and reactions so that you will react or assume things the way he desires you to. This is why you need to check with The Holy Spirit what to do when there is no clear Biblical guideline.

So that Satan cannot put his thoughts or things in our minds we are told to take everything to Jesus and fill our minds with godly things and thoughts so Satan cannot fill it with his evil things (Philippians 4:6-8).

According to your desire for the things of God will be your thought life and what you put into it. As you choose what you think about you will have no one else to blame for the consequences of your thoughts and actions. A Christian will focus on Jesus, The Kingdom and His Things. If you find you are having trouble doing this then you may need deliverance of some sort.

Choose carefully the inputs into your life.  Your eternal salvation might depend on them.

Jesus gave very few commands.  These can be summarised as follows:

Be holy because I am holy.

In other words you need the same attitudes of holiness that Jesus has.  He rejected everything Satan offered Him and embraced everything of God.

We are to love others with the same quality of love with which God Loves us and others:

Joh 13:34-35 I give a new commandment to you, that you should love one another; according as I loved you, you should also love one another. By this all shall know that you are My disciples, if you have love among one another.

Demonstrating this type of Love will show we are Christians and do not belong to the world which does not show this quality of love.  If you hate another you break this law and will be guilty of unforgiveness which, if not repented of, will take you to hell.  It is also to be noted that there is no ‘escape clause’ that allows you to ignore this command.  So it must be obeyed.  Note that there is only one type of love but its physical expression will be determined by the relationship it is being used in.  Which is why you can sex with a wife but not with anyone else.

His final commands are summarised as follows:

The Great Commission of Jesus for us to represent The Kingdom of God

This is the command to preach, teach (disciple) and represent The Kingdom of God which can be summarised from all the statements of it, by Jesus, in the Gospels, as:

“All power (authority) is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,

Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you

And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in My name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;

But he that believeth not shall be damned.

And these signs shall follow them that believe;

(In otherwords.  If you believe in whom Jesus is.  You will do the following as a natural part of your life.  Jesus said in His Name).

You will cast out devils;

You will speak with new tongues;

You will take up serpents;

And if you drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;

You shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover

And His promise is

And, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

Jesus said that if we love Him we would do these things.  So if you are not doing these things, resting from doing them, learning or teaching how to do them or doing something else Jesus has said to do, then you need to find out why you are not doing them and deal with it so that when you face Jesus and are judged for your life you will be declared by Him to be a good and faithful servant of His.

When you die you are judged for what  you did with the things Jesus gave you in this life.  Only faithful stewards get to heaven.

Remember, though, you are not required to do these things every second of the day, but only when Jesus prompts you to do them.  Life is more than just evangelizing every second of the day.  God has other things He needs you to do and the follower of Jesus will always be led by The Holy Spirit to do whatever Jesus desires them to do at that time.

At death, your real life begins.  Earth is only a training and sifting ground for eternity and how you live here will determine where you end up in eternity as well as the rewards you will be given if you go to heaven.

It is said in The Bible that without holiness no one will see God. So we need to learn what it means to live a holy life, separated from the things of the world that would destroy our salvation and keep us from heaven.

He who would go to heaven must live as Jesus desires them to live which means they need to know what He said and that is only found in The Bible.  This is an excellent reason for Bible study – to find out what not to do to avoid going to hell.

When  you think about it, hell is a great incentive for learning what Jesus desires you to do.

Salvation is found only in Jesus and only as He is Lord of your whole life will He end up being your King in heaven.

Remember, the greatest punishments in hell are reserved for those who did things for Jesus before they did that which took them to hell.

You will have no one else to blame but yourself if you end up in hell.  It is your choices that got you there and you cannot blame another for talking you into going to hell as you had to accept what they said, even though The Holy Spirit was warning you not to accept it.  Guard carefully the inputs into your life as they may be why you do not go to heaven but end up in hell.

Unless you have the innocent, guileless love of a child and their type faith in the authority over them (parents) you will not live as Jesus desires you too and it will be more difficult for you to enter into eternity in heaven.  But with God, all; things are possible.

So ask yourself whenever you do something:

Do I want this recorded in my life book in heaven?

Do I want it there when Jesus reads it at my judgment?

If you evaluate everything in the context of its effect on your salvation and rewards in heaven you will find your life will change and become more in line with how Jesus desires you to live and you will avoid going to hell because you will not do anything Jesus will not approve of in case it causes you to lose rewards or salvation.

But then if you really love Jesus you will not want to offend Him through sin (rejecting Him which is what sin really is).
