I watched Jentezen Franklin earlier this afternoon and he had a guest on today by the name of Bill Wiese who had written a million selling book called 23 minutes in hell.
It seems Bill had an out of body experience and went to hell for 23 minutes. He spoke about what he had experienced there and the horrors of hell. He went on to say and quoted scripture upon scripture about what he had experienced.
He went on to say how hell was prepared for satan and his fallen angels, man was not intended to dwell there. But since there are men that chose not to believe in God and accept his son as their savior and choose not to want to be with him, hell is for all of those people.
Bill went on to say how dark it was in hell darker than anything you can imagine and quoted scripture as to why, in the book of Revelations it states that there is no need for the sun in Heaven because God is the light. He felt no hope while he was there because there was no Love, because God is love. He was in what seemed to be in a very dark prison cell alone feeling no love and having no sense of hope, no contact with anyone all he could basically see was people engulfed in flame being tortured by demons along with hearing the screams of anguish and pain.
I know some people will read this and say this man just made all of this up to sell books and will go about their day to day activities still not believing in our Lord and Savior.
Hell is an eternal prison except all the money and all the best lawyers cannot get you out of it. Just like men make the decision to go to jail by committing crimes the people in hell got there by choosing not to accept our Lord.
We live on this planet for a short time a very short time while we don’t want to think about death the fact is no matter how rich or how poor we are we will all die one day and while we do live here a very short time once we leave here it is for all eternity.
I remember at work one day my co worker who is also a Christian was talking to a gentleman about getting saved and he said he would one day when he gets himself right. I asked him what did he mean by that getting himself right? he could not really put it in words but I think what he was trying to say is what a lot of people think that you have to be saved to get saved. People let me say we are all imperfect we all sin don’t think because you get saved you will no longer sin because you will because it is in our nature. But when you get saved you are under the blood of Jesus you should repent daily for your sins when saved because you will sin but with the Lords help you can control your sin and you will be under Gods grace.
If you haven’t already go out and buy this book or go to the local library and read it. An example Bill gave in his interview with Jentezen is we’ll research where we plan to go to take a short summer vacation but won’t do any research on where we will spend our eternal lives at.. Think about it?
