Visions of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven according to St. Faustina


The following passages are taken from the Diary of St. Faustina and they refer to her visions of Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. Very interesting.
"...I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings" (Diary 153).

" Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is! The kinds of tortures I saw: the first torture that constitutes hell is the loss of God; the second is perpetual remorse of conscience; the third is that one’s condition will never change; the fourth is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it, a terrible suffering, since it is a purely spiritual fire, lit by God’s anger; the fifth torture is conditional darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both of others and their own; the sixth torture is the constant company of satan, the seventh torture is horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies. These are the tortures suffered by all the damned together, but that is not the end of the sufferings. There are special tortures destined for particular souls. These are the torments of the senses. Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned. There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another. I would have died at the very sight of these tortures if the omnipotence of God had not supported me. Let the sinner know that he will be tortured throughout all eternity, in those senses which he made use of to sin. I am writing this at the command of God, so that no soul may find an excuse by saying there is no hell, or that nobody has ever been there, and so no one can say what it is like. I, sister Faustina, by the order of God, have visited the abysses of hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence. I cannot speak about it now; but I have received a command from God to leave it in writing. The devils were full of hatred for me, but they had to obey me at the command of God. What I have written is but a pale shadow of the things I saw. But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell. When I came to, I could hardly recover from the fright. How terribly souls suffer there! Consequently, I pray even more fervently for the conversion of sinners. I incessantly plead God’s mercy upon them. O my Jesus, I would rather be in agony until the end of the world, amidst the greatest sufferings, then offend You by the least sin. (Diary 741).

" ...I saw my Guardian Angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames, which were burning them, did not touch me at all. My Guardian Angel did not leave me for an instant. I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God. I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory. The souls call Her “The Star of the Sea”. She brings them refreshment. I wanted to talk with them some more, but my Guardian Angel beckoned me to leave. We went out of that prison of suffering. [I heard an interior voice which said] ‘My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it. Since that time, I am in closer communion with the suffering souls.’” (Diary, 20)

" November 27, 1936. Today I was in heaven, in spirit, and I saw its unconceivable beauties and the happiness that awaits us after death. I saw how all creatures give ceaseless praise and glory to God. I saw how great is happiness in God, which spreads to all creatures, making them happy; and then all the glory and praise which springs from this happiness returns to its source; and they enter into the depths of God, contemplating the inner life of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, whom they will never comprehend or fathom. This source of happiness is unchanging in its essence, but it is always new, gushing forth happiness for all creatures. Now I understand Saint Paul, who said, “Eye has not seen, nor has ear heard, not has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love him.” And God has given me to understand that there is but one thing that is of infinite value in His eyes, and that is love of God; love, love and once again, love; and nothing can compare with a single act of pure love of God. Oh, with what inconceivable favors God gifts a soul that loves Him sincerely! Oh, how happy is the soul who already here on earth enjoys His special favors! And of such are the little and humble souls. The sight of this great majesty of God, which I came to understand more profoundly and which is worshipped by the heavenly spirits according to their degree of grace and the hierarchies into which they are divided, did not cause my soul to be stricken with terror or fear; no, no, not at all! My soul was filled with peace and love, and the more I come to know the greatness of God, the more joyful I become that He is as He is. And I rejoice immensely in His greatness and am delighted that I am so little because, since I am little, He carries me in His arms and holds me close to His Heart. O my God, how I pity those people who do not believe in eternal life; how I pray for them that a ray of mercy would envelop them too, and that God would clasp them to His fatherly bosom... "
(Diary 777).

  1. How stirring these glimpses of the afterlife are! Truly God desires to disperse His Mercy through these words until the end of the world! I wonder how many thousands of souls have already been saved by them...and how many continue to be saved through their rereading.
    Oh, to be able to love Him as we ought!!
    God, grant us the grace!

    4. Twenty years ago I had a dream an angel took me to a dividing line. One side was bright and the other was total darkness devoid of any light. Within that darkness I heard loud shrieks and screams and diverse levels of agonizing cries from loud to whimpers. The angel explained they are crying from the lack of God's love they know it is out there, it said hell is the lack of love in total darkness eternally. The one 's crying the loudest have just arrived and the low level whimpers have been there for quite sometime. The angel then said you know how long eternity is? And I awoke

    5. I believe that true hell is the knowledge that God exists, has a plan for us, and, through deciding to ignore all of His message in this mortal life, the very absense of God in eternal life is the very essence of hell. 0

  3. Thanks for posting Sr. Faustina's diary- a great eye opener for those who do not believe that there is hell. I feel sad that many Christians still take for granted God's infinite mercy... time is running short.
    We must all repent our sins and work towards our own family and friend's conversion, before it is too late.

  8. What I find hard to believe is why the Church has not been energetic in promoting St Faustina's visions of Hell. As far back as 1917 it was granted to mankind to see Hell, this time through the eyes of the children at Fatima.

    The time is now for the Church throughout the world to give mankind a "siren call" about the reality and magnitude of eternal damnation

  12. Let us prepare ourselves during this lenten season to wear the protective gear of God Almighty and fight Satan and his demons by following the will of God in each and everything. Let us pray to Him and ask Him to guide us into the eternal kingdom prepared for us. The moment we decide to fight the sensual world, remember you have signalled your intentions to the evil world and therefore, be prepared to encounter evil on a daily basis. Yes, it is a battle... praise God Almighty to give us the power to defeat our unseen enemy!

  13. I cannot even begin to imagine the joy in heaven because sometimes the joy of just being in prayer is great so much as at times it brings me to tears because of the love I feel. Heaven would leave me breathless!

    Hell has been described by the saints in such similar but unique ways. Similar such as the smell of sulfer and the darkness and thick air which makes it hard to breathe. Sufferings of all different kinds in different areas, according to greatness of sins. I could never even bear the thought of looking at it much less
    being there. Thanks be to God for allowing these blessed saints to have had the agony to visit (or pleasure if heaven) to give us mortals the tools to believe and to guide us in the right path.

    Purgatory I know is the place for prepping our souls to be cleaned from the residue of our sins; being that we are saved but need the residual effect of what the sin did removed.
    I am not too familiar with how it is. I know of the fire but not if there is some other form of
    removal or all may be the same for everyone, except the length of time. So, if that is the case, then it goes without saying that we all must make it a point to pray for the souls everyday.
    Thank you for showing these visions of St. Fautina. I pray that she will pray for us and may Jesus have Mercy on us always!

  14. I am so fearful of purgatory and hell.I used to not believe in hell.I was a meth addict and the devil had me in his fingers and lied to me every day and I believed him.Jesus has delivered me and my husband from 13 yrs of addiction and lies.I praise merciful God that he allowed us to live long enough to be saved by his love.We have been free from that death for 3 yrs.PRAISE BE TO GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!!He saved us from hell!!

    1. I remember reading a story about an 8 year-old boy who was afraid of Hell. His mother listened to his concerns and replied "Remember, my son, Hell is a place where sinners go. Avoid sin and you will have no danger of going there."

      Well put, I must say. Don't worry. Love and have great trust in the good God...

    2. I fear purgatory also. It is not that I directly seem publicly like I have done things but rather many vocations in life I may have missed and oppurtunities like daily mass or charity that I have missed. I am very religious but also very earthly. I take advantage of the sacraments and the first Friday promise but have to remind myself that if I go to purgatory it is me choosing to do wrong that put me there. My biggest thing is to make sure if I die that people pray for me. I am worried people will say "oh, that Michael was a saint" when I am surely not a saint. People think I am the most gracious person in the world but I am not. I have my failings and Christ is all I have to save me.

  17. Many years before I even heard of St.Faustina and her visions, I heard a radio programme describing how a group of scientists tried to dig into the earth to get out to the other side through the centre of the earth.
    But many thousand feet into the earth, they heard very eerie sounds coming from below so much so that they packed up and abandoned the project. Several of the scientists came to believe that there is a hell.
    Now that St.Faustina has written about what she saw, we should have no doubt that there is an afterlife but the way there depends on which of the two roads we tread.
    May God strengthen my faith and may I never wander astray from the narrow path.

    1. Yes I read about the scientists drilling in Siberia. They heard frightening screams & yelling & think one of them taped it. They refused to work there & reported the matter to the Soviets who bribed them to keep quiet about it. However one scientist just could'nt keep it to himself and revealed the facts to the outside world. Naturally the Soviets are atheists so proof of the existence of hell will only show how foolish they are !!!!

  18. i believe that sr, faustinas visions of an immediate afterlife were false/.
    A friend of mine collapsed some years ago with heart failure and he was brought back to life later by paramedics. his heart had stopped beating and no pulse.
    He later said that he felt his brain die and that it was the end the end of his personal existence and he didnt go anywhere he said to a hell or a heaven. The only way we can have an afterlife after death is through a resurrection , a resurrection of the body our body where we be remade again. Scientists have also recently said that near death experiences wher people go down tunnels etc are not real and their brain has not fully died during those experiences. It is hallucination due to carbon dioxide in the blood.
    Do not be deceived. The dead are asleep. Only a bodily resurrection can give us an afterlife.

    1. You're not making a correct distinction between the soul and the body. Your body is "asleep," as you put it in your response. The soul, once the body dies, is unfettered due to its spiritual nature and undergoes the Particular Judgment by Christ. There its eternal destiny is decided, whether in Hell for mortal sins or in Heaven for having lived a just life. Purgatory is temporary if that soul is saved by God yet needs to remove the rust of sin, as I've heard it described.

      The souls in Heaven are waiting to be reunited with their bodies after the Last Judgment. They enjoy the Beatific Vision of God once they are admitted into Heaven, and the reunion with their physical bodies will add to their degree of happiness, since the body will now be able to enjoy God through the senses.

  19. that is your choice, but be ready to face the consequences afterlife as what St. Faustina has described in her diary. I'll pray for you, that you will encounter God, for your soul to be saved . We all need to pray for God's mercy to flow down to every soul who were misguided by the lies of the devil. And pray that these souls wil be saved, and will enjoy the everlasting beautiful life He has promised us. May God be praised!!!!

  21. Purgatory is not real! this false saint made up all this crap! Christ Jesus didnt show her any of this. please read 2nd Corithinans 5:6. it tells us that when we are absent from the body we are present with the Lord! that means theres no Detour. for we live with God now, and forever, nothing will seperate us from him ( Romans 8:35). The blood of Jesus purifies all of our sins ( 1 John 1:7) =) not only that but God wont count any sins against us or remember them when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour (Hebrews 10: 16-17) there is no Purgatory its not in the bible and goes against all the truth from God. dont Take the Glory away from Christ. Nothing can take away sin Accept the Shedding of blood from God in Flesh. There is no Purgatory 2nd Cornith. 5

    1. Well, actually it was in the original Bible, until Fr. Martin Luther decided to get rid of those books in the Old Testament that made direct reference to it. The Second Book of Maccabees comes to mind.

      So it may not be in your Bible, but it was in there for 15 centuries in the original Bible. So 15 centuries of Christians believed in it. St. Monica, the mother of St. Augustine, asked her son that after she died to 'remember her at the altar.' Even she knew that she needed the prayers of the Communion of Saints in case she had to undergo any temporal punishment due to her personal sins in Purgatory.

    2. Of course there is a purgatory, the Bible says so.
      Jesus opened the gates of Heaven for us but Heaven has to be merited.

    3. I see that your post is from three years ago but I wanted to clarify something. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 says:

      6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

      It says "would prefer" to be at home with the Lord.

    4. That is the sad thing about the Protestant Bible . . . it does not have all the books that were written. That is why they do not understand confession (when Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom to Peter "whoever sins you forgive are forgiven and whoever you retained are retained", Holy Communion, etc. We pray for the Holy Spirit to lead us to the truth. The leader in the Episcopal church broke away from the Catholic church because he wanted a divorce and remarry. It was created to fit his will and not God's will and then other religions came forth.

  22. Has anyone read or know about Mary K. Baxter? She testified that Jesus took her to hell and heaven as well. I was trying to compare the differences between the two. The hell and heaven description of St. Faustina and Mary K. Baxter's are almost the same. I also check what other say about this. Some believes, others don't. I do really believe that this is from the Lord. It's a warning before it's too late. In deed God loves us all. I do also believe that it doesn't mean we claim ourselves Christians and read the bible, we will go to heaven. What matters most is the content of our heart. Do we say we love Jesus by our mouth, or by our heart? If we know Jesus by heart, we know His ways. If we do believe Jesus' salvation, repentance follows. The conviction of the Holy Spirit is present as the grace of Jesus has been received. It won't be easy but in the end, eternal life awaits. As Paul say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7)." All glory and praises for our Lord Jesus Christ!

  24. References to Purgatory were in the Bible for 15 centuries until Martin Luther decided they made him too uncomfortable, so he tossed out the books that mentioned it. The Second Book of Maccabees refers to an intermediary place of purgation. A number of other books accepted by Christianity for all those centuries were thrown out as well. Hence the 66 books in the protestant Bible and the 73 in the Catholic Bible.

    Luther also wanted to get rid of the Epistle of St. James, which he referred to as "....an Epistle of straw." Luther was an incontinent Augustinian monk who suffered from scruples, among other things. His writings, called Luther's Letters, are so fowl that they would besmirch this site by reproducing them.

  26. Jesus referred to hell several times in Scripture. Recall in St. Faustina's description that the worse suffering would befall those who do not believe in hell. Once must repent of sin until the Holy Spirit tells us we are done, must reconcile and must convert their lives with the intention of sinning no more. One must deny themselves and surrender their lives in obedience to God's Will as the Lord taught in the Our Father. Once cannot enter heaven unless one is perfected. If one dies in a state of mortal sin, which is most of the world since there is little sincere repentence, one will perish. Jesus will judge all when we die and those who do not believe in anything but immediate entry into heaven will be in for a terrible awakening. No one believes a merciful Jesus would do this but the Lord forgives and is merciful to those who repent and change their lives. Its not an easy road, but very narrow and rocky.

  29. I think the sayings of Jesus which may point to
    purgatory are "you will be handed over to the torturers and will not get out until you
    have paid the last penny" so does mean we get
    out of somewhere.
    Plus a certain sin of blasphemy against the Holy
    Spirit "you will not be forgiven in this world
    or the next" does this mean there could be forgiveness in the next world if we don't commit this sin - say in the 1000 year millenium ?

    I am not 100% sure of their meaning but they are from Jesus himself. They may just apply
    to believing Christians though.

    I would like to believe in purgatory though since it would mean a second chance for some.

I answered her she was right but she would be paying in purgatory for the sins she committed. You can't believe you can do what you want while on earth then just forget about them and go to paradise when you die.

  32. well regardless of what is the true faith we all ought remember who the saviour is and what He has done for all of us. regardless if there is a purgatory or not we should all be striving to reach heaven. not one of us are worthy of Gods grace yet with His mercy he bestows this upon us. It requires us to just remit and confess our sins to Him with a sincere heart, to change our sinful ways (easier said than done) and to live our lives. to Love God our Father with whole heart, body and soul and to love our neighbors, pray for our enemies. We need not worry about where we go but rather whom we serve, who we give glory to, who is first in our lives then justice and the rest will always fall into place

    WHOEVER WILL RECITE IT WILL RECEIVE GREAT MERCY AT THE HOUR OF DEATH...PRIEST WILL RECOMMEND IT TO SINNERS AS THEIR LAST HOPE OF SALVATION.EVEN IF THERE WERE A SINNER MOST HARDENED, IF HE WERE TO RECITE THIS CHAPLET ONLY ONCE,HE WOULD RECEIVE GRACE FROM MY INFINITE MERCY... I DESIRE TO GRANT UNIMAGINABLE GRACES TO THOSE SOULS WHO WILL TRUST IN MY MERCY...

    THROUGH THE CHAPLET YOU WILL OBTAIN EVERYTHING, IF WHAT YOU ASK FOR IS COMPATIBLE WITH MY WILL. (DIARY OF SIS. FAUSTINA 1731).

    1. I love reading rubbish like the one in the URL that you pointed out. Do you notice that nobody who ever writes against the eternity of Hell ever has a problem with the eternity of Heaven? Oh no, don't talk to us about the eternal bad stuff; we just want to hear about the eternal good stuff. Right.

      If Hell is not eternal, then what does God do with Satan and his followers? Where do they go, Club Med? There is one thing that is necessary to forgive sin, and that's repentance. You have to feel sorrow and compunction for having offended such a good and loving God. Hell is eternal because the souls who die in unrepentant sin have no sorrow. They become, as it were, HARDENED in sin. Since they will never turn from evil for all eternity, then logically their punishment will last for all eternity.

      In the Book of Revelation, St. John said that "...The smoke of their torment will rise up forever and ever." Um, that's a pretty good description of the duration of Hell...

  43. In the end, the saints both named and not named WILL win - in the Name of Jesus Christ King of Heaven and Earth. There is the mysterious joy of reading Revelation. At this precarious time in the history of the world, I for one am finally learning to find joy in suffering. Not the media, not foul mouthed expletives, not fake "Catholic" politicians, not the lies of the evil one will change one iota of God's truth. What one believes or does not belieive will not alter the truth. St. Faustina, please pray for us.

    question hell... how dare I compare my intellect with that of my Creator?
    He is the Alpha and the Omega, He is the First and the Last, He is the
    Beginning and the End.. He suffered and died for us so that we may be
    saved but He has also given us a dangerous gift... free will, otherwise we
    would be like robots.. hence, we can accept Him or reject HIm

I used to believe in this religion before I came out of the box and questioned a few thingsthat didn't make sense to me... sheepeople wake up time will past and you will have wasted a great experience. look around you god is love, the universe is love hell doesnt exsist. and plus god is the create of everything so he hs created good and evil

  52. Yes, He created good and evil but also created
    FREE WILL! You have to decide for God.
    When I went to Medjugorje, I did not believe in God at the time as I had been seduced by science in college. Praise the Lord I saw the light and came back to Him. Since that time, like everyone else, we are constantly combated by Satan and his demons who mask themselves, and are grabbing the young into their clutches. Sure, its a tough road sometimes but that's life and you know what..when you have hope..hope of eternal happiness..you'll be glad you did. Better than to believe in heaven than lived your life like there wasnt!!!(think about it)

  57. God was sittin' up in his palace in heaven one day thinking "I am so angry with these pesky humans but rather than send them all to this place of eternal torture and suffering that I, an all loving and merciful god(note lower case) have created, while being sinless myself(yet still managing to create such a VILE and EVIL place?) I will send myself to earth in human form, claim to be my own son and have them cricify me(I am god so probably would not feel any pain if this event actually took place)then I shall be satisfied and let them in to heaven(I am quite sure I as a human would be loved and revered if I had people murder my child to wipe the slate clean of THEIR sins)only if they use their free will to do exactly as I say! Yes, I am no longer the jelous vengeful god of the old testament, I love all men except those Cunts who do not bow before me and do exactly as I have instructed. jeebus is love!"

  63. Many Christians are familiar with Sister Faustina's diary. Her accounts are very similar to the visionaries of Medjugorje about heaven, purgatory, and hell. Indeed, these places exist. We must be good and pray for those in need.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am a Christian and I believe what the Scriptures tell us about good and evil in the world; about free will which allow us to choose.
    I think that I fear God more than I love Him and reading the vision that was given to Saint Faustina reinforces my fear. How can a good God, who created Hell for the rebellious angels, we are told,allow any human, whatever their evil deeds and sins on Earth,to be cast into Hell for eternity? We can't comprehend eternity but to think that any of our fellow human beings, including the worst genocidal degenerates we can think of must spend forever suffering in Hell I have a problem understanding that my God loves all His Creation.

  73. With no disrespect for any religion intended, but only honest inquiry, how could a loving God subject his own created beings, his own children, to eternal torture? Even, I, a far from perfect being, could not do that, would not. If I am the creator, ultimately I am responsible for the defects of my creation. If this revelation is true, the revelation that is needed even more is the answer to the question WHY such a terrible thing is necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Your question is a fair one. I can't understand how a creator could create such a place or why, either. But you have to remember that we are not God. There is no way our minds can come close to grasping the whys. I think answers will surely be found on the other side. Hell was created for the fallen angels, not us, though the angels are God's creation, also. My personal thought on this is that hell is a place provided by God, but the evil that is there is all to do with Lucifer and the demons. Unfortunate souls who find themselves there will be subject to neverending, diabolical torture, not suffering at God's hands. My big question is to do with heaven (regarding hell). I wonder how heaven can be so blissful when say, perhaps, one or more of your friends or loved ones are in hell. Wouldn't that be a source of suffering in heaven? Wouldn't suffering the loss of dear ones cause eternal sadness in heaven, too, to be fully aware of eternal damnation of those you used to know and love?

    1. You're speaking about the loss of a loved one from an earthly perspective, not a heavenly one. The souls of the blessed are so united with God in heaven that their wills only want what God wants. They love everyone insofar as God loves them. If a family member is lost and a mother or father is in heaven, they will not be saddened in the least, since sorrow has no place in God's kingdom. They will see the perfect justice of the condemned and praise God for it.

      Delete
  75. Hell is the absence of God, who is the source of all that is good. Since souls are eternal, being divorced from all good is terrible. God divorces those who do not reciprocate His love. He certainly cannot be "just friends" and if a soul will not love Him He will give the soul what it wants: separation from Him.

    That is how I see it.

  80. God has given all human beings free will! we can choose either life or death. purgatory exists because of God's mercy! is there any one among us who can say they are perfect in God's eyes?

    purgatory is a place where souls can be purified because God is all pure and we must be pure before we can see him! it is a place of hope and i cannot find the words to thank Jesus for the mercy he has bestowed on ungrateful, sinful mankind!

    i am a sinner and i prostrate myself before God and i put my trust in God's mercy! Jesus told st. Faustina that if you place your trust in him and pray the chaplet of divine mercy, you will be saved!

    we are all sinners but we can be saved if we only try to pray and be good! God knows all our weaknesses and he will not abandon us! i urge all christians to pray the chaplet of divine mercy and have a devotion to the blessed virgin mary! say three hail mary's and at the end of each one, add "o my mother preserve me from mortal sin during this day" in the morning and "o my mother preserve me from mortal sin during this night" in the evening!

    we must continue to pray for the conversion of sinners! may the sacred heart of jesus and the immaculate heart of mary triumph forever!

    Jesus I Trust In You!

  82. Thanks for this...I always wanted to know about S.Faustina visions...I know they were true...and so were the visions of the children in Fatima,Don Bosco and many others from other pios people...
    Unfortunately,there are many so called 'visions' of heaven and hell by some of the prophets of the abundant cults nowadays that,are deceiving and misleading...

  83. As Isaiah said,
    Is 55:8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
    55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

    We call God our Father...but we do not realize that God will test us and if we fail, everlasting fire. So all of you who can't understand this, it's because you are using a human way to describe God the Father. Where in fact, He is not like an earthly father. Would an earthly father test is children? No. Even if an earthly father would test them, the punishment would not be death. The problem is this, sin hardens the heart and makes a shipwreck of faith. Fail the test by playing the hypocrite, you will be given a similar spirit as Saul and deny that Hell exists. You will be given a spirit as stubborn as Pharaoh. Worry if you have lost a holy fear of God. Ask yourself, are you walking with the Lord on the narrow rocky road? Or are you living like "eat, drink and make merry" and not worry about tomorrow?

  88. God is Love and it is our choice if we want to follow him. Heaven is a place for those who have accepted His Son Our Lord Jesus Christ and are baptised in the Holy Spirit ( a real experience, experienced by thousands, fact, bringing to life the presence of God in our lives, truth). When we accept Christ we gain the Love and protection of God walking with us everyday. Without God we go our own way, do things the wrong way and then blame God when our lives go wrong. God is waiting for you to want Him, so that with your own freewill you invite Him to live in your heart, it is your choice. Like children to have to learn, sometimes the hard way, accept Jesus today it will be will mind blowing, promise.

Heaven wouldn't be Heaven it would be earth or worst like Hell. In Heaven we our like God in spirit so we have to, through freewill, accept Jesus Christ as our Saviour with all our heart to experience the Holy Spirit coming into our hearts and we can experience Heaven on earth We then have direct contact with God.

  95. There is definitely a Higher Being and God. I found this blog by happenstance, and feel it is my heavenly duty to respond to it. I have read what the satanists have to say. They contradict themselves. They say on one hand that there is no God, yet they believe in Satan who combats God on a daily basis. You can't it both ways guys! The Devil is real and he is the univeral con man. He "conned" many of you to "sell" your soul to him with dire consequences. You cannot "sell" your soul to him as it has already been bought and paid for by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ! He conned you into thinking you could sell your soul to him - all he did was enter into your life and make you miserable which is what he is famous for. On the contrary, the Lord of Heaven offers us eternal salvation, grace, mercy and his everlasting Love. My....what a simple choice! The Holy Roman Catholic Church is the authority and "is" the closest to God the Father on this planet. There are I believe 73 books in the Catholic bible and 66 in the Protestant bible. The Protestants have trouble with some "gray areas" such as Purgatory which were "in" the original bible. They like it black and white. But with God's belief in second chances and love, we all with his grace may be lucky enough to enter into his Almighty Kingdom.

  96. I will also tell you a story. As a teenager, I was given a vision of heaven. It will be in my upcoming book so I won't spoil all of it. But suffice it to say we flew over heaven and I saw it! I was lying on my back in bed. I was age 18. I was going through some turmoil at the time and I think God wanted to "put on a show for me" and let me know he was frickin' REAL I suddenly heard a loud jet engine in my ears, as if a jet engine was being cranked up. I was then catapulted through the clouds. It felt as if I was on the nose of a Boeing 747 hurtling through the air. I was clutching the hand of someone next to me as I felt a presence nearby. It was "the old man" God to my left. He looked EXACTLY LIKE the Michelangelo painting you see in the Vatican, with the white flowing beard and the burgundy robe/cape. He did not utter a word to me but pointed down with his left hand as we were going like Mach One through the heavenly clouds! I looked down and I saw tens of thousands of people cloaked in roman togas walking up a mountain hill all talking and conversing with each other and having a good time while they were glorifying God the Almighty. This was a large trail actually (not narrow) but it snaked around a larger mountain - on that mountain as we were flying over I saw Jesus in a white robe - everyone was also wearing white toga style robes. Jesus had his arms outstretched much like the monument you see on top of the mountain in Brazil near Rio De Janeiro. People were lined up to meet him and to get their life review. It was beautiful, peaceful, the rising sun, and clear skies as we flew over. Then I saw more clouds and the jet engines in my brain slowed down like you are on a plane at the airport when the pilot shuts off the engine valve and they grind slowly down while on the tarmac. This "is" what I experienced! It was not a dream as I was fully conscious and it was very real and I still "see it" in my head today very clearly. It was a heavenly vision and this is the first time I have written about it on the internet. I will elaborate more in a book I am writing about this and other experiences.

  97. I can tell you of the Lifelong battles I have had to endure. My parents were freemasons and I for one did not accept it. I along with my brothers and sisters had a hard childhood but God rescued me from it. I went to engineering school and also was estranged from first my father who cursed me. I lost my first wife in 94 and then when I remarried I was estranged from my mother. I have endured many accidents and "bad luck". My second wife has been tormented by evil sprits for more than 13 years now. We have been to exorcists and yes we both turned to God even more once we realized the true source of he problems. We have suffered preternatural events as well. We pray everyday but the battle goes on. I can tell you for a fact that evil exists and the things it can do are well incredibly evil. read hostage to the devil by Malachi or the book by father Amorth. We are Russian Orthodox and very devout and I know we are in the last days and decision time is soon. Hell is very real I can assure you. Many will laugh at what I have written and say it is delusion. well delusion does not move objects on their own or pick up you and throw you down stairs and other such things. This is an example of demonic oppression not possession likely from the freemason practices my parents engaged in and he satanic worship. I am sure I would not have these problems if I rejected God. I would be on the path of flowers she mentions.... Decide now to follow the way the truth and the Life Jesus the begotten Son of God who paid the price of our iniquity. research it and you finds science points to God. The star of Bethlehem was found . Google for it and watch the videos. watch the William Lane Craig debates on the Existence of God. Have an open mind. Think about the alternative...

  100. There is no purgatory. Christ desended after death and freed all those who were in Abraham's bosom or paridise. Now at death we either go to heaven or hell and wait for the White Throne judgement or the judgement of Christ for the saint's reward. I'm sorry to inform you all of this, but Mary is in heaven waiting for the judgement seat of Christ as are all saints. She cannot help you, only Christ can. He is the way, the truth, and life; no one goes to the Father accept through Him, Christ.

  101. First, anyone who has had a mystical experience. is altered towards their already established personal beliefs. EG: When St. Theresa relayed that she was shown the truth of the Holy Trinity, she would have had to known about the Trinity to recognize it as such. Once the experience ends, the mind processes it and recollection is not accurate. If these supernatural places exists, we as humans, have no vocabulary to describe such an experience. That does not mean we do not have the flair f/ the dramatic....but it is like "The Whisper Down The Lane." A secret is told to person # 1, then it goes to #2, by the time it reaches the end of the lane ..maybe #10...the story has changed. Even the original author will have new perceptions as time goes on and add/delete relevant info. That's the scientific side. If hell as described above resides on earth and there is an awful lot of ugly going on down here...why is there more of it. I did not ask to be here. Life is hard enough and humanity is left hanging & then between everything else, we have to worry about a vengeful God. Hell is not justice, it is ego. If it exists...it is a battle between Satan & God. God has a temper..it is not mercy or justice. If he threw his own Lucifer out of heaven, actually God had Archangel Michael do it, I have no chance of getting in to this heaven. It's been 2.000 years since we have seen any sign of God...the longest in history or the church holds onto scriptures we are unaware of. However, we have plenty of murder, war, disasters, rape, abuse of extreme measures...pretty much the same acts God performed in the Old Testament. If the Catholic Church would stop raping our kids and our wallets...maybe I could put faith in anything they declare.
