The Man Who Spent 23 Minutes in Hell: If You Could See Hell


If you could see hell for just five seconds, you would never be arrogant, self-righteous or rebellious toward God again. You would run to Him with extreme gratitude and humility and ask for His forgiveness.

If you could see hell for just five seconds you would never take God's name in vain again. You would thank Him every day for the rest of your life for providing the way of salvation. You would thank God that you are still breathing and have hope.

The fact is that you won't see hell while you are still alive. Salvation requires faith in what Jesus did for you on the cross. Salvation requires a purposeful act on your part ... before you die. If you say you need to see hell before you will surrender your life to Jesus, you will never surrender your life. You will see hell because you rejected the only way of salvation, and you will spend eternity apart from God.

If you call yourself an atheist, you won't be one after seeing hell. You will have no excuse before God at Judgment Day for your denial of His existence. The evidence of design was all around you your entire life, but you ignored it and denied the obvious. You condemned yourself to hell by your very own words, and by rejecting the cross.

If you spent five seconds in hell, you would never again take pride in how strong you think you are. Isaiah 5:14-15 (KJV) states, "Therefore hell hath enlarged herself ... and the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled." Those demons have tremendous strength, and you have none in hell. In Mark 5:4, the man that was demon possessed was so fierce that he broke chains off of himself and tore ropes in pieces. No man could bind him or tame him.

You are a nothing and a nobody in hell. You will never see your friends or anyone else ever again. You will be in total darkness, kept apart from others. You will have no conversation, no interaction and no purpose. You will be completely isolated and forgotten.

No one escapes hell. No one ever gets relief from the pain and torment. There will be no sleep, no peace, no food, no water, no comfort, no escaping the heat and flames, and there will be absolutely no hope.

If you could see hell for just five seconds, you wouldn't waste time focused on how people have hurt or disappointed you. You would forget about yourself and start helping others to escape this horrific place. You would serve God and quit complaining.

If you could see hell for five seconds, you would fall on your knees and cry out to God to save you. You would turn away from your sinful lifestyle. You would surrender your life to Jesus and make Him your Lord and Savior. You would renounce the name of Satan and reject absolutely anything to do with him.

Don't make the mistake of thinking you could endure five seconds in hell, let alone an eternity.

On Nov. 23, 1998, I had an out-of-body experience which falls under the classification of a "vision" (see 2 Cor. 12:1-2). It was not a dream or a near-death experience. The Lord chose to take me to hell in my spirit man.
