12-25-15 – The Testimony of Heaven & Hell by John Bunyan (1628 – 1688)

 Luke 16:19-31

Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores.

Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried.

In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.’

But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’

And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’

But he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!’

But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Some may have heard about the author, John Bunyan, who wrote “Pilgram’s Progress” (1678).

image

 

What MOST don’t know is this:

John Bunyan was literally taken into Heaven and then into Hell and shown the reality of both.  ONLY through the Salvation of Jesus Christ can any be saved from the torment of hell.  The following is a reading of his testimony, with illustrations:

 

HEAVEN IS VERY REAL and HELL IS VERY REAL. We only get THIS LIFE to choose which place we want to spend eternity. . . . BUT we MUST follow the rules established by the Heavenly Father . . His house. . . His Rules.  You choose to obey them  or not.

image

 


THESE ARE THE RULES ESTABLISHED BY THE HEAVENLY FATHER:

ONLY through the Salvation offered through Jesus Christ, whose Hebrew name is Yahshua, can ANY be reconciled to the Heavenly Father and become a part of the Kingdom of Heaven. . . . PERIOD!!!   END OF STORY!!!

image

 

WARNING!!!!!   DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY DOCTRINES THAT SAY YOU WILL GET ANOTHER CHANCE WHEN YOU DIE . . . That is a LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL!!! 

image

. . . THAT IS A “doctrine of demons” that is going around to give FALSE HOPE to people . . . Providing ear-tickling lies to those who don’t want to believe the truth of eternal judgement . . . That those in hell can have another chance. . . . . . .  DON’T BELIEVE THAT LIE!!!!!

NO I WON’T DEBATE THE TRUTH OF THE REALITY OF ETERNAL SUFFERING FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR IN THIS LIFETIME THAT WE ARE GIVEN.

image

 

WE HAVE ONLY THIS LIFE TO CHOOSE WHETHER WE WANT THE FREE GIFT OF SALVATION, OFFERED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, WHOSE HEBREW NAME IS YAHSHUA.

image

 

——-> YOU MUST CHOOSE and no choice means you have chosen to go to hell. . . THEN, at the Great Throne Room Judgement, you WILL be sent to the Lake of FIRE.

image

SOMEBODY READING THIS POST IS PLAYING AROUND WITH ETERNITY. . . AND HAS NOT GIVEN HIS/HER FULL LIFE TO JESUS. . . . YOU MUST REPENT AND ASK JESUS TO FORGIVE YOU.  ASK HIM TO BE IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE. . . YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR . . . DON’T DELAY . . . THIS MAY BE YOUR LAST DAY ALIVE TO MAKE A DECISION.

image

 

PLEASE STOP AND MAKE YOUR CHOICE TODAY TO FOLLOW JESUS. . . . BECAUSE THIS MAY BE THE LAST DAY YOU ARE ALIVE.

SONGS BY KEITH GREEN

These songs are from the late 1970s, early 1980s, but VERY relevant for today. Some of you may not have heard about Keith Green, but he had a MAJOR impact in the lives of many Christians in his time. He died an early death, but is ALIVE and FILLED with JOY in presence of our Beloved SAVIOR, Jesus Christ.

    1. Thank you, Bette. I just came across the video today, about John Bunyan’s testimony of Heaven and Hell . . . I didn’t know he had that experience. Many such as yourself have had that same thing happen. I was hoping those who are scoffer’s and mockers can see this has happened even before our generation. . . The LORD revealing the TRUTH of Heaven and Hell. Maybe even one more will turn to Jesus and be saved, just looking at that video.

  2. Hey Linda – to go along with this, I just finished reading a great book by John Bevere titled… “The bait of satan” – living free from the DEADLY TRAP OF OFFENSE….. awesome breakdown of scripture and how when the small seeds of offense we perceive from others enters our heart , we can trap ourselves and miss the vital importance of letting God be the judge of anything done to us by others – and how even though we may be in the right to avenge ourselves, it will lead to the deadly trap of not forgiving others and missing the mercy and forgiveness of the Lord ……. wow – such a vital part of making it to the Kingdom when “OUR DAY ARRIVES” God Bless us all – may we follow the most intricate parts of what The Lord commands – a huge part of dieing to ourselves – Amen

    1. Excellent info, MIchael . .. . I find DAILY I must ask the LORD to search my heart to make sure there is no offense, unforgiveness, sin, etc., because only HE can know for sure. Jesus said narrow is the way and few who are that find it. I can see that more clearly each day. . . It’s VERY DIFFICULT to follow that straight and narrow pathway, as we pick up our cross DAILY to follow Him. It’s ALL about serving the LORD and others, as we die to self . . Our hopes, dreams, wishes and desires. .. That DIES so Jesus can live in and through us.

      Thank you for sharing and blessings to you.

  3. Hi,
    I’m sharing Dr. Patricia Green’s word from the Lord called “Beginning of Sorrows”
    (10 minutes in length). She states that we are living in Matthew 24:7 at this time, and that persecution is coming.

  4. Thank you for this post Linda. Your post reminds me of the story of Judas Iscariat, as he had killed himself. Too late to for redemption once we have died. The early churches spread the false doctrine that one can “purchase” someone out of the pit by giving money to the church. Great resources listed in your post, and if ok with you — I plan to add those links and videos to my blog for future reference. https://jcsouthwest.wordpress.com/2015/11/27/gospel-messages-lessons/

  5. Perhaps “The Time of My Wrath” refers to mid-Trib, about and about the time of the 6th Seal?

    The Time of My Wrath (through Glynda Linkous; wingsofprophecy)

    The time of My Wrath upon the Earth is quickly approaching. My Children shall not be subject to My Wrath, for My Son’s precious Blood has borne this for them, but woe, woe to those who dwell on the Earth – those who know Me not in that time, for every single day shall be very grievous for them. They will indeed seek death and find it not, for since they rejected mercy through the Cross, they shall find it not in other places. Theirs shall be a long and agonizing torment, full of terror that shall never end.

    Oh, that lost souls would find Me now, while there is yet time for them to repent!

    That door soon closes upon the world and then shall no more repentance be given.

    Your time left on the Earth is not long now, children – redeem the time – do My Work in the Earth and know that all you see shall soon pass away.

    2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

    Revelation 6:16-17
    16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
    17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

    Revelation 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

    Matthew 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

    2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
