The View of the Kingdom of Heaven and Hell (1975)
I have seen many visions, but in this one, I saw something truly special. It was a tremendous view of the Kingdom of Heaven and Hell, yet to be created side-by-side in the world of God. They appeared a universe away from me, but the universe itself had vanished. Not a star could be seen. On the Kingdom of Heaven’s side, there were three gigantic, dome-shaped buildings in a glittering, endless expanse. On the dark side, a smelting furnace burst into flames and screams emanated from within. It was such a horrible sound that I could not bear to listen. That was Hell. I watched as people tried to crawl out and escape from the scorching heat, only to continuously fall back in. What I also found strangely fascinating was how, although this was a spiritual world, the sky was distinctly blue. While the Kingdom of Heaven and Hell were both gigantic, my distant vantage point allowed me to see them simultaneously. And it was their proximity that amazed me. I suppose that, after the final judgments, some will go to the Kingdom of Heaven and others to Hell, so it makes sense that they would be created side-by-side in the world of God. However, prior to God revealing this sight to me, I had not realized it. After opening my eyes, I could not regain my bearings for ten minutes as I pondered the comparative insignificance of our mortal lives. It was a frightening to realize that, had I not accepted God’s providence, I would be sent to horrific fires of Hell. For showing me this, I thank the Lord.
