Testimonies of People Who Have Gone to Hell
Brother Kenneth E. Hagin
Brother Kenneth E. Hagin wrote a little book called, I Went to Hell. [Note: This experience of him going to hell happened when he was 15 years old and then he was born again April 22, 1933. Then Kenneth Hagin was miraculously healed of an incurable blood disease.. He later went on to become the founder of Kenneth Hagin Ministries and RHEMA Bible Training Center in 1974. where they have now trained over 45,000 people since the school started in 1974. There are 14 International RHEMA Bible Training Centers with over 6,000 international graduates to date. Seewww.rhema.org to order the book, I Went to Hell ] Here is a testimonial video of the play"I Went to Hell" Susan actually played the role of Aunt Liza and comes on near the end at 15:55. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67E0uWqjLYc
Kenneth E.Hagin was a church member and had been water baptized, but was not a Christian. He was not born again. He never prayed a salvation prayer. In his book he says:
“I could feel the circulation as it cut off. Suddenly my toes were numb. Faster than you can snap tour fingers, my toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, stomach and heart went dead and I leaped out of my body and began to descend. Until this time, I thought, “This is not happening to me. This is just a hallucination. It can’t be real! ” But then I thought, “This is the third time. I won’t come back this time!” Darkness encompassed me ‘round about, darker than any night man has ever seen. The Bible talks about men and women being cast into “outer darkness,” where there is “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matt 8:12)
And in the darkness, I cried out, “God! I belong to the church! I’ve been baptized in water! (You see, I was telling Him, “I shouldn’t be going this direction; I’m going the wrong direction!”)
I waited for an answer, but there was no answer; only the echo of my own voice through the darkness. And the second time I cried a little louder, “God, I belong to the church! I’ve been baptized in water!”
I waited for an answer, but there was no answer; only the echo of my own voice as it echoed through the darkness.
I would scare a congregation out of their wits if I ever imitated the way I screamed the third time, although if I could scare them out of hell and into heaven, I’d do it. I’d flat do it.
I literally screamed, “GOD! GOD! I BELONG TO THE CHURCH! I’VE BEEN BAPTIZED IN WATER!"
But you see, although being baptized in water is right, although belonging to the church is right, it takes more that being baptized in water to miss hell and go to heaven!
And all I heard was the echo of my own voice as it echoed through the darkness. I came again to the bottom of that pit. Again I could feel the heat as it beat me in he face. Again I approached the entrance, the gates into hell itself. That creature took me by the arm. I intended to put up a fight, if I could, to keep from going in. I only managed to slow down my descent just a little and he took my arm. Thank God that voice spoke. I don’t know who it was – I didn’t see anybody –I just heard the voice. I don’t know what he said, but whatever he said, that place shook; it just trembled. And that creature took his hand off my arm. I was just like there was a suction to my back parts. It pulled me back, away from the entrance to hell, until I stood in the shadows. Then it pulled me up headfirst. As I was going up through the darkness, I began to pray. My spirit, the man who lives inside this physical body, is an eternal being; a spirit man. I began to pray:
“O God! I come to you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I ask you to cleanse me from all sin.”… I came up right beside the bed the third time and leaped right inside my body.
When I got inside my body, my physical voice picked up my prayer right in the middle of the sentence. I was already praying out of my spirit; my physical voice picked up my prayer and continued to pray….I want you to know that it was like a two ton weight lifted off of my chest. Peace came on the inside. I looked at Grandpa’s old clock on the mantelpiece, and it said 20 minutes till 8 o’clock. So I was born again at 20 minutes til 8 o’clock on April 22, 1933 in the south bedroom, and I’ve been saved ever since. (Hagin, 15-19)
The last page of the book he relates about a woman who kept saying there is no hell. On her deathbed she died and went to hell saying: ”It’s so dark, it is so DARK! It’s so DARK!”
Men and women, boys and girls, young men and young women: There IS a heaven to gain and there is a hell to shun. This may seem old-fashioned to some, but the old-fashioned Gospel is still true today. The first and foremost faith that we need to understand is having faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior.” (Hagin, 32)
Ian Mc Cormack
One night while diving for lobster on the small Island of Mauritius near New Zealand, Ian McCormack was stung by five deadly jellyfish of the kind that are among the most venomous creatures on Earth. By the time an ambulance arrived his body was totally paralyzed and necrosis had begun to set into his bone marrow. On route to the hospital, Ian began to see his life flash before him. At this point in his life he was an atheist and he wasn't sure what death would bring. As he lay there dying, he saw his mother in a vision praying for him, encouraging him to cry out to God from his heart so that He would hear and forgive him (his mother was the only Christian in his family.) After being taken to the hospital, Ian died for approximately 15 - 20 minutes and had an extraordinary near-death experience. The following is his testimony of his NDE reprinted here by permission. http://www.near-death.com/mccormack.html
Mary K. Baxter's book - Divine Revelation of Hell
Jesus Christ took a woman, Mary K. Baxter, to hell and told her to write a book about it called A Divine Revelation of Hell (Whitaker House). As I read this book, I knew it was true because what Jesus said in the Bible backs up every experience she had. Jesus said to her: “Tell the world that hell is real and that men and women must repent of their sins.” Here I’ve included seven excerpts from her book to reveal just what type of people end up in hell and why they ended up there.
I. Backslidden woman, who was healed of cancer who intended to get saved and live for Jesus
The next cell we came to, a woman’s voice said, “Help me…it’s so painful…Lord, I will do what is right now. I once knew You, and You were my Savior …” Big pieces of burning flesh fell from her, and only bones clenched the bars of the cell. “Why won’t you save me now? You even healed me of cancer and told me to go and sin no more lest a worse thing come upon me. I tried, Lord; You know I tried. I even tried to witness for You. But Lord, I soon learned that those who preach Your Word are not popular. I wanted people to like me. I slowly went back into the world and the lust of the flesh devoured me. Nightclubs and strong drink became more important than You. I lost touch with my Christian friends and soon found myself seven times worse than I had been before. And though I became lover of both men and women, I never intended to be lost. I did not know that I was possessed by Satan. I still felt Your call upon my heart to repent and be saved, but I would not. I kept thinking I still had time...But I waited too long and now it is too late.”
Reader, if you are not saved, your good intention of becoming born again someday will not keep you out of hell.
II. Lesbians, Homosexuals and Adulterers
In the heart of hell, a woman’s voice from another cell said…”Sometimes we are brought before Satan and he tortures us for his pleasure. Satan feeds on our pain and grows strong on our cries of despair and sorrow. Our sins are always before us. We know we are ungodly. We know also that we once knew the Lord Jesus, but refused Him and turned away from God. I was a prostitute. I took men and women for their money and called what we did ‘love.’ I destroyed many homes. Many lesbians, homosexuals and adulterers are in these cells.” (Baxter, 108 –109). Heartbreaking screams and great cries of pain came from these cells. The souls inside were being burned alive by this hotter than hot lake of fire, and yet they could not die. The demons, too, joined in the laughter as Satan went from cell to cell, torturing the lost. (Baxter, 99)
As I looked closer, I saw many souls, each chained to another. The weight of the chains dragged them under the surface of the lake of fire. Jesus said, “These are the souls of the unbelievers and the ungodly. These were lovers of their own flesh more than lovers of God. They were men loving men and women loving women, who would not repent and be saved from their sin. They enjoyed their life of sin and spurned my salvation.” I looked again at the souls in the fire. They were a fiery red and their bones were blackened and burned. I heard their souls cry out in regret and sorrow. The Lord said, “This is their torment. Chain after chain, they are linked together. These desired the flesh of their own kind, men with men and women with women, doing that which is unnatural. They led many young girls and young boys unto acts of sin. They called it love, but in the end it was sin and death. I know that many boys and girls, men and women were forced against their wills to commit such atrocious acts – I know and will not hold this sin to their charge. Remember this though,” said Jesus, “I know all things, and the persons who made these youths to sin have the greater punishment. I will judge righteously. To the sinner, I say, “Repent, and I will have mercy. Call on Me and I will hear. Time after time I called to these souls to repent and to come unto Me. I would have forgiven them and cleansed them; and in My name they could have been set free. But they would not listen to Me. They wanted the lust of the flesh more than the love of the living God. Because I Am holy, you must be holy. Touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you,” said the Lord. (Baxter, p130-131)
III. Backslidden Preacher
I heard a cry so desperate that it filled my heart with despair, “No hope! No hope!” he called from a coffin in a endless wail of regret. The demons pushed their spears into the soul of the man in the coffin. I looked inside and saw a bloody mess. Before my eyes was a soul. Inside the soul was a human heart, and blood spurted from it. The thrusting spears were literally piercing his heart. “I will serve you now, Lord.” He begged, “Please let me out….I will now preach the true Gospel. I will tell about sin and hell. But please let me out of here.”
Jesus said: “This man was a preacher of the Word of God. There was a time when he served Me with all his heart and led may people to salvation. Some of his converts are still serving Me today, many years later. The lust of the flesh and the deceitfulness of riches led him astray. He let Satan gain the rule over him. He had a big church, a fine car, a large income. He began to steal from church offerings. He began to teach lies. He spoke mostly half-lies and half-truths. He would not let Me correct him. I sent My messengers to him to tell him to repent and preach the truth, but he loved the pleasures of this life more than the life of God. He knew not to teach or preach any other doctrine except the truth revealed in the Bible. But before he died, He said the Holy Ghost Baptism was a lie and that those who claimed to have the Holy Ghost were hypocrites. He said you could be a drunkard and get to heaven, even without repentance. He said God would not send anyone to hell – that God was too good to do that. He caused many good people to fall from the grace of the Lord. He even said that he did not need Me, for he was like a god. He went so far as to hold seminars to teach this false doctrine. He trampled My Holy Word under his feet. Yet, I continued to woo him. He did not listen to Me. I called him to repentance, but He would not come to Me. One day he was killed and came immediately here. Now Satan torments him for having once preached My Word and saved souls for My kingdom. This is his torment. The blood of many lost souls are upon this man’s hands. Many of them are in torment right now.” With sorrowful hearts, Jesus and I walked on. (Baxter, p 71)
IV. Unforgiving Judgmental Church Member
The woman said to Jesus, “You remember, Lord, how I went to church and was a good woman. I joined the church. I was a member of Your church. I knew your call was on my life. I knew I had to obey that call at all costs, and I did.”
Jesus said, “Woman, you are still full of lies and sin. I called you, but you would not hear Me! True, you were a member of a church, but being a church member did not get you to heaven. Your sins were many, and you did not repent. You caused others to stumble at My Word. You would not forgive others when they hurt you. You pretended to love and serve Me when you were with Christians, but when you were away from Christians, you lied, cheated and stole. You gave heed to seducing spirits and enjoyed your double life. You knew the straight and narrow way. And you also had a double tongue. You talked about your brothers and sisters in Christ. You judged them and thought you were holier than they, when there was gross sin in your heart. This I know, you would not listen to My sweet Spirit of compassion. You judged the outside of a person, without regard to the fact that many were children in the faith. You were very hard. Yes, you loved me with your lips, but your heart was far from Me. You knew the ways of the Lord and you understood. You played with God and God knows all things. If you had sincerely served God, you would not be here today. You cannot serve Satan and God at the same time.” (Baxter, 51).
V. Unforgiving Wife – When Husband Committed Adultery
I listened as the woman said, “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father, but by Him. Jesus is the Light of the World. Come to Jesus, and He will save you.” When she spoke, many of the lost souls around her listened. Some swore and cursed at her. Some told her to stop. Still others said, “Is there really any hope?” Great cries of sorrow filled the air. I could not understand why the woman was preaching the Gospel here.
Jesus said, “Child, I called this woman at the age of thirty to preach My Word and to be a witness of the gospel. I call different ones for different purposes in My body. But if a man or woman, boy or girl doesn’t want My Spirit, I will depart.
“Yes, she did answer My call for many years, and she grew in the knowledge of the Lord. She learned My voice, and she did many good works for Me. She studied the Word of God. She prayed often, and had many prayers answered. She taught many people the way of holiness. She was faithful to her house.
The years went by until one day she found out that her husband was having an affair with another woman. And even though he asked for forgiveness, she grew bitter and would not forgive him and try to save her marriage. True, her husband was wrong, and he did commit a grave sin. But this woman knew My Word. She knew to forgive, and she knew that with every temptation there is a way of escape. Her husband asked her to forgive him. She would not. Instead, anger took root. Anger grew inside her. She would not turn it over to Me. She turned more bitter each day and said in her heart, “Here I am serving God all the way, and my husband is running around with another woman! Do you think that is right?” She said to Me.
I said, ‘No it is not right. But he came to you and repented and said he would never do that again….Daughter, look inside yourself, and see that you have caused this yourself.’
“Not me, Lord’ she said, ‘I am the holy one, and he is the sinful one.’ She would not listen to Me. Time went on, and she wouldn’t pray to Me or read the Bible. She became angry not only at her husband, but also at those around her. She quoted the Scriptures, but she would not forgive him. She would not listen to Me. Her heart grew bitter, and great sin entered in. Murder grew in her heart where love had once been. And one day, in her anger, she killed her husband and the other woman. Satan then took her over completely, and she killed herself.” (Baxter, 54-55)
VI. A Rebellious Teenager Who Was Raised in Church
In the next pit was the soul of a man wrapped in its skeleton form, crying out to Jesus. “Lord,” he cried, “help me understand why I am here.” Jesus said, “Peace, be still. You understand why you are here.” Jesus turned to me and said, “This man was 23 years old when he came here. He would not listen to My gospel. He heard My Word many times and was often in My house. I drew him by My Spirit unto salvation, but he wanted the world and its lust. He liked to drink and would not heed My call. He was raised in church, but he would not commit himself to Me. One day he said to Me, “I will give my life to You one day, Jesus.” But that day never came. One night after a party, he was in a car wreck and was killed. Satan deceived him to the very end.”
VII. He Knew the Gospel, But Would Still Not Repent
We walked on to another cell. In it another man with a skeleton form and a dirty-gray soul was inside. Cries of such utter pain and regret came from this man that I knew I could never forget them. “This man is here,” said the Lord, “because of his rebellion. The sin of rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft. In fact, all those who know My Word and My Ways and have heard the gospel but still will not repent are in rebellion against Me. Many are in hell today because of this sin.”
The man spoke to Jesus and said, “I once thought about making You Lord of my life, but I did not want to walk your straight and narrow way. I wanted the broad way. It was so much easier to serve sin. I did not want to have to be righteous. I loved my sinful way. I desired to drink strong drink and do the things of this world more than obey Your commands. But I wish now I had listened to those you sent to me. Instead, I did evil and would not repent.” Great sobs shook his body as he cried out in regret. “For years I have been tormented in this place. I know what I am, and I know I will never get out. I am tormented day and night in these flames and these worms. I cry, but no one comes to help. No one cares for my soul here – no one cares for my soul.” He fell into a small heap on the floor and continued to cry.
The cell block in hell is 17 miles high. Here in these cells were many lost souls who were involved in witchcraft or the occult, mediums, drug peddlers and evil people with familiar spirits. These are the ones that deceived people and led them away from God.
Bill Wiese, a businessman, Spent 23 Minutes in Hell
Bill Wiese saw the searing flames of hell, felt total isolation, and experienced the putrid and rotting stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons, and finally, the strong hand of God lifting him out of the pit. Wiese’s visit to the devil’s lair lasted just twenty-three minutes, but he returned with vivid details etched in his memory. Since this life-changing ordeal, he has spent the last seven years studying the Scriptures to find answers and has listed more than 150 Bible verses referencing hell. He says, “Even if you don’t believe my story, I hope you will believe the Scriptures and avoid hell just the same.” He wrote a book about his experience called: 23 Minutes in Hell (Charisma House, 2006). I encourage you to buy it.
There are too many people that have died and gone to hell and have come back to life and have verified that hell is there and it is a fiery tormenting place full of pain and suffering for anyone to say that hell is not real or that it is not there.
