Heaven & Hell
Heaven exists and hell exists. Where do you want to go to? It will be your decision. For which kingdom have you worked: for the divine one or for the hellish one? For whose pleasure have you lived: Heaven’s or hell’s? There is no other choice! GOD may give you an 80 or 90 years’ lifetime on earth. Every day He gives you the opportunity to choose freely. GOD does not want the sinner’s death but that he may be converted. It is a battle but it is surely worthwhile fighting for an everlasting blessedness.
Death — and What Happens Afterwards?
When man dies in the love of GOD, the soul slips out, just like that. However, the souls of those who are lost for Heaven, or the souls of those who still very much clung to the world hardly want to leave the body. It is an enormous battle. As soon as the soul leaves the body, she feels an undreamt-of freedom. She is no longer in the prison of the body. She enters the light and senses GOD’s unfathomable love. In like manner, she also senses her own dreadful sinfulness. Unless these souls are damned, the longing surges up in them: “I cannot go to GOD. I am so dirty. He is the Pure One, I want to purify myself.” Then they come to a place of purification, it is the souls themselves that throw themselves into the purgation (Purgatory), where full of longing they await the vision of GOD. But a soul that has been damned needs not wait long; the demons fetch her swiftly and drag her to her appropriate place.
Hell is A Collective
Lucifer was once the greatest Angel in Heaven – he was the Angel of light. Now he is the opposite: the angel of darkness! All his power and strength will now through men be directed against GOD. Hell itself is a collective complementing one another in knowledge and malice. The fallen Angels took with them into hell their original knowledge changed into spitefulness. What an awful knowledge must such a demon have! Only if you are like a child before GOD, if you love and listen to the words of JESUS with a childlike heart, you are able to protect yourself against that deadly breath of pestilence.
The Dark Room
We cannot describe Heaven, any more than we can explain hell. You could say that there are countless rooms in hell, each completely different. I speak of hell right now as it is until the Judgement Day. After the judgement of GOD there will be a different hell. In one of those rooms there can be e.g. utter darkness, a hellish darkness. You are in this darkness and never know what will happen. Let me explain it like this: One or two hideous devils come at you, do cruel things to you, yet you cannot see them. They tear you up yet you cannot die. You hear something crawl on the floor sounding like an enormous tapeworm or a terrible dragon which is sneaking up on you … For ever they can torment you, for ever they can do awful things to you. The terrible thing of it is that you cannot see them. You never know whether they are back again or when they will come, you are always in this dreadful darkness. This is only an example. In each of these millions of rooms it is different and thus in perpetuity, for everlasting, to all eternity, without end.
Will Satan with His Fallen Angels Convert in the End?
I know that a case is made for the thesis that the devils will at long last become converted and go to Heaven. If that were the case, then CHRIST’s Sacrifice of the Cross would not have been necessary. Holy Scripture says: „They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb …“ (Rev 12,11) The Angels who rose against GOD were given the grace to recognize their mistake. Merely going down on their knees before GOD, a token of humility would have been needed and they would have been forgiven. But their pride would not allow it and so they plunged into hell for ever: „The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil or Satan …“ (Rev 12,9) „But woe to the earth and the sea; because the devil has gone down to you filled with fury …“ (Rev 12,12) This mighty rage is burning in Lucifer because he knows he is unable to harm GOD. With this anger and hatred he is aiming at the children of GOD. He tempts them with all his possibilities in order to draw them to him down into hell.
The Unimaginable Happiness of Heaven
When thinking of the unimaginable bliss we can once have in Heaven, what are a hundred earthly years in comparison? Who on earth wants to exchange a billion Francs for a hundred Francs? Well, if someone chooses the hundred over the billion Francs, something is wrong. Because GOD is so great, beautiful, almighty, powerful that you can just look at Him for billions of years and be perfectly happy. All beauty in Heaven is GOD’s emanation. In Heaven it will be so unspeakably beautiful, spotless, clean, that first one must be absolutely cleansed in Purgatory in order to be able to come and stand before GOD.
The Last Judgement will only come later, only then when the earth will disappear, will no longer exist. Then everybody, the holy and unholy, and even Satan with his followers must appear before the throne of GOD. Then the SAVIOUR will appear in the Name of the FATHER in the HOLY SPIRIT as eternal Judge. Do you know what it is going to be like when the SAVIOUR will appear as divinely loving Good Shepherd, who is Love Himself, and – ah, only GOD can smile like this – while smiling in this love of His will call those on His right: „Come, My little sheep, enter into the joy of Heaven forever!“ If GOD did not hold you at that moment, you would melt with joy. But then, horrifyingly, He will speak to those on His left: „Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire! Go to your father, who is Satan!“ – JESUS is trembling in anxious anticipation for man to reconsider and come to Him in love. Yet that ”self” of man, which always only sees himself, looks only after himself, covets only for himself, bars the inviting calls of the SAVIOUR so many times. Were man to forget this ”self”, he would already have on earth a little Heaven.
