There are people who claimed to have experience death and come back to life. And there are people who went to hell and back.
Here are three stories of people who have visions of hell during their near death experience:
I Entered Hell
I got shot, the last thing I remember feeling was as if you heated up a hypodermic needle. I felt a very painful feeling. My whole body just collapsed.
What I experienced in hell, I immediately was in my full bodily form. I looked like myself but I didn’t have any clothes on and I was hung like crucifixion style in a very deep abyss. All I could see beneath me was very red, it was very hot. I was chained on both my wrists and I had shackles on my ankles. I knew I was in some sort of cavern. It was pitch black. I didn’t know the name of Jesus so I never prayed, you know “Jesus, please save me.”
I saw these pairs of eyes start to come at me from various directions as I’m hanging there. I see this lava flow on a high boiling temperature. The lava would actually be contacting my legs and I could smell and feel my own flesh burn off. What was more tormenting than that is that it would re-form.
My flesh was re-formed and there was this continual mocking, this sense of hopelessness, and evil in all sides. There was nothing good there. It was totally void.
Then I saw an entire hand; I knew it was a man’s hand. I knew this was the hand of rescue and then when His right hand started to descend toward me it dropped this great white light, and I heard the most magnificent music, angelic choir.
When the hand came near me and grabbed me by the waist and the blackness left. Everything disappeared. I knew at that moment that I was going to be okay. Then I heard a voice and this voice simply told me, sounding like the clap of thunder, rushing waters and a bolt of lightning, all combined together and it simply said, “It’s not your time.”
I was in a coma for 27 days and in rehab for years. I am walking today. Fully healed. Now it’s all up to Him. – Matthew Botsford
The Angels Brought Me to Hell
My name is Jennifer Perez and I’m 15 years old. My testimony starts on May 2nd, 1997. That night, a friend called me and asked if I could go out. I was all ready to sneak out so I told him to wait for me at the corner of my street. I walked down the street, and my friend was already there. But when I got in the car, I saw 3 guys and 1 other girl. When I was talking to my friend on the phone, he said that we were just going to go cruising around the town. I said “OK that sounds like fun”, that’s why I went. I never thought he was going to take me to a motel.
At first, we were just talking, so I said, “While we’re waiting, why don’t we get something to drink?” So my friend and I left the room, and walked to this little restaurant in front of the motel. We bought three Sprites and then walked back to the room. They started pouring the Sprite into cups. They didn’t bring a bag or anything that looked suspicious, that would make me think they were going to put something in my drink, or do something to me.
I went to the restroom to fix my hair and do girl things, and when I came out my cup was already served. I drank what I thought was my Sprite. After this, I don’t know what happened.
But when I could see, I felt my spirit come out of my body. I was already at the hospital; I saw the doctors and nurses all around me. When I was out of my body, I saw my body on the bed. When I turned around, there were two men dressed in red, “come our way” and they grabbed me, one at each arm.
Right beside them were 2 angels, Gabriel and Michael. The reason I knew their name was because it was written on their foreheads in Gold.
The angel Gabriel came and grabbed me by my arm. He took me to that ugly black door that I didn’t even want to look at. When I was on the other side of the door, it was dark all around, I couldn’t even see myself. Then we started to fall really fast, like a roller coaster. As I was falling it was getting hotter and hotter. I closed my eyes; I didn’t want to see where we were.
When we stopped, I opened my eyes, and I was standing on a great road. I was really thirsty! I started to cry, and when the tears ran down my cheeks, they completely evaporated. There was the smell of sulfur, like burning tires. I felt all the heat, it was very hot.
When I started looking around, I saw people being tormented by demons. The demons would stab the people they were holding. In the eyes, in the body, in the feet, in the hands, the demons didn’t care. The tormented souls scream in agony.
I looked back at the angel Gabriel, and he was looking up. I thought he didn’t want to see the others being tortured. I thought to myself, “why is he still here? Aren’t I suppose to be there waiting for my turn to be tortured?” I was also thirsty. And I cried out to the angel, “I’m thirsty I’m thirsty,” I think he heard me because he looked down on me; and he said, “The Lord is going to give you one more chance.”
When I went back to my body, I woke up and found myself in the Hospital. – Jennifer Perez
I Saw Hell
I was ordained a priest on January 1, 1975 to serve as a missionary in the Diocese of Thiruvalla. On Sunday April 14, 1985, the Feast of the Divine Mercy, I was going to celebrate Mass at a mission church in the north part of Kerala, and I had a fatal accident. I was riding a motorcycle when I was hit head-on by a jeep driven by a man who was intoxicated after a Hindu festival. I was rushed to a hospital about 35 miles away.
On the way, my soul came out from my body and I experienced death. Immediately, I met my Guardian Angel. I saw my body and the people who were carrying me to the hospital. I heard them crying and praying for me. At this time my angel told me: “I am going to take you to Heaven, the Lord wants to meet you and talk with you.” He also said that, on the way, he wanted to show me hell and purgatory.
Hell First, the angel escorted me to hell. It was an awful sight! I saw Satan and the devils, an unquenchable fire of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, worms crawling, people screaming and fighting, others being tortured by demons.
I saw people whom I knew, but I am not allowed to reveal their identities. The sins that convicted them were mainly abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, hatefulness, unforgiveness and sacrilege.
Then the angel showed me purgatory then heaven.
Then, I came back to the world with my angel. While my body was at the hospital, the doctor completed all examinations and I was pronounced dead. The cause of death was bleeding. My family was notified, and since they were far away, the hospital staff decided to move my dead body to the morgue. Because the hospital did not have air conditioners, they were concerned that the body would decompose quickly.
As they were moving my dead body to the morgue, my soul came back to the body. I felt an excruciating pain because of so many wounds and broken bones. I began to scream, and then the people became frightened and ran away screaming.
The doctor came to examine the body and found that I was alive. So he said: “Father is alive, it is a miracle! Take him back to the hospital.” – Fr. Jose Maniyangat
