I have often longed to have a glimpse of ‘Heaven’ in a dream and have prayed for the same many a time but that prayer has not yet been answered. On the contrary, I have never prayed to the Lord to show me ‘Hell’ in a dream, because of the tendency to get frightened seeing the torments (as described in the Bible) there, yet some months ago the Lord showed me some sections of hell for a while in a dream. I did not feel frightened seeing the sights there, perhaps because the Lord shielded me from feeling fearful.
Actually the Lord showed me 3 distinct sections of “Hell” (perhaps there are many). In the dream, a door opened to me to enter one section of ‘Hell’ where it was very dark and I could see the skeletons of people there. Though they were just skeletons, they seemed to be moving and speaking and were grieving for things done in their past. I moved from there and walked into another room and here was a ghastly sight. Body parts were scattered here and there on the floor and though they were not in the bodies that they belonged to, they had life and were quivering and trembling with fear and pain. I moved on from there to another room where there was weeping and gnashing of teeth, but no one to be seen as such. The sights that I saw were so intriguing that I waited for some time, just to observe it longer.
Suddenly I heard a sound behind me and looking back, I saw that the door that I had entered through was slowly closing. Till then I had been calm and composed but when I saw the door closing, fear gripped me and I ran back and exited the door just before it closed shut, heaving a sigh of relief that I had escaped.
Hell is a reality, whether anyone believes it or not. And Heaven is a reality too, whether anyone believes it or not. Better believe and take a decision for our own good. No time to argue once one we are dead.
