People who have visions of heaven and hell

Post by Stephanie44 on Sun Mar 03, 2013 3:42 pm

What do you think of stories of people who have had visions of heaven and hell?
I'm inclined to believe them since they usually match scripture, are coming from a person who has a real relationship with God.
But some of my coworkers were talking about one such video today (from a Christian source) about a girl who was dead for 23 hours and went to heaven and hell, and this freaked me out really bad for a couple reasons.
1) she saw specific people there, including her grandmother, some famous pop stars, the pope in hell. I would not be able to handle knowing for sure that a particular person was in hell - even if it was someone i didn't care about. I would rather not know!
2) she was surprised by some of the people who were there (the pope, obviously, and her grandmother) and when she asked Jesus why he told her (with regard to grandmother) because she didn't forgive and with respect to the pope because he loved money more than evangelizing. This made me really scared! no one is without sin. But then, Jesus did say that if we don't forgive others God won't forgive us.
It really terrifies me! If even Christians who appear to confess faith in Jesus (which is how we are saved) can end up in hell because of their sin, then anyone could! Here's the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkFRPt4xIVY
What do you think?

I will say that a few of the things she said were a little weird, while a lot of it was from the Bible.

For example, she saw an 8 yr old boy in hell, because he watched cartoons and such cartoons were Satan's instruments. And that Michael Jackson's dancing was imitating the steps of the way demons dance.

I would be skeptical of this because of that last statement. I DO NOT believe that God would send a little boy to hell for watching cartoons. That does not line up with what I know of God.

I pray that God gives you peace and speaks the truth to your spirit about this topic and this particular situation so that there would be no doubt. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

In Jesus Name.

Thanks for your thoughts.

About the 8 yr old, she also said that Jesus told her that he was rebellious against his parents.

I guess what made me really concerned was the fact that it seems you can't be sure about anyone's salvation, not even your own ... becuase we all struggle with sin. And it made it seem like one sin can prevent you from being saved.

That is not biblical at all.

We are saved by grace which means forgiveness that we do not deserve, not being good or doing our best. Our forgiveness and salvation rests completely on Jesus paying the price for every single sin we will ever committ. Paul said God's grace is so great that we could willing sin and His grace would still cover it. He went on to say should we, GOD FORBID! But God's forgiveness through grace is that great.

If you believed that Jesus died for your sins, and that God raised Him from the dead and you've confessed with your mouth that He is your Lord and asked Him to be save you and to be your Lord. Then, all you need to do is believe.

Nothing will be able to separate you from the Love of Christ. The bible says so.
