Why millions of Muslims are seeing apparitions of the Mother Mary?

Comment from Understand The Times:


One of the great signs that we are in the Last Days will be when Muslims embrace false appearances of a woman believed to be the mother of Jesus that will bring about peace and unity. As mentioned in the article below this happened at Zeitun, Egypt in 1968.

One of the common denominators between Roman Catholics and Muslims is their reverence for "Mary." Current problems in Egypt may well bring about another round of apparitions, or as described in biblical terms, "lying signs and wonders" that will occur in a time of great deception.

Why millions of Muslims are seeing apparitions of the Mother Mary?

Why have apparitions of the Mother Mary appeared across the Muslim world in recent decades, and why was St George celebrated just as much in 19th century Anatolia as he is in modern Britain? Margaret Coffey explores the inter-religious saints that have bound together different faiths in shared ceremony and respect.

In 1968, when Egypt was experiencing something of a political, social and economic crisis, the image of the Virgin Mary was seen above the dome of a Coptic Christian church in the Cairo suburb of Zeitun.

Mary's image was seen first in April 1968, a month after workers had gone on unprecedented strike in another Cairo suburb, by two Muslim watchmen at a garage across the road from the church. The apparitions recurred for five months, for hours on end, and more than a million and a half people claim to have seen Mary during this time. There was no verbal message received, but many Egyptians interpreted the apparitions as a message about Egyptian unity and peace, and as testimony to the power of the spiritual realm.



Again, in December 2009, a Muslim neighbour of a Coptic Church in Giza, Egypt's third largest city, claimed to have seen a light over the Church from the vantage point of the coffee shop over the road. Over the following days, 200,000 people, Christian and Muslim, shared his observation—and took it as a sign of difficult times to come, when unity would be a challenge to the Egyptian people.

It turned out to be a timely warning—soon after, at the Coptic Christmas, a number of Christians were shot down in front of a church.

So, where is Mary now, when Egypt is again in a time of crisis? 

Mary has been one of the strongest symbols across the Middle East for unity, across religions, tribes and nations.

In his [Nicholas Doumanis's] family, as in other Greek refugee families, there was a deal of nostalgia for their Anatolian past of happy memory.  The stuff of these memories was that Greeks and Turks did not hate each other—and it went against the grain of the official Greek or Turkish stories.

In fact, Mary has made an appearance in another trouble spot, Syria. 

In 1982, the year that saw the so-called Hama massacre, when the Syrian regime put down with particular thoroughness a Muslim Brotherhood uprising in the city that became one of the first opposition centres in the current war, Mary appeared in an ordinary house in the old city of Damascus.  She was preceded by other manifestations that drew thousands of people, and when she delivered her messages over a period of years, they emphasised unity and peace, first among Christians, and then between all peoples. Our Lady of Soufanieh remains a focal point of prayer in Damascus—every day at 5 pm, the house is open for prayer, and those who come include both Christians and Muslims.

The role of Sainthood in Fragile States has been explored in a book co-edited by Danish scholar Andreas Bandak, who takes a particular interest in Our Lady of Soufanieh. He's fascinated by the way saints emerge, often to transcend differences and bind people together. 

For instance, St George, although claimed by the British, is also a prominent Middle Eastern figure.  In Christian and Muslim versions in the Middle East, St George was slayer of dragons—and foreign enemies. But he was also a figure who helped build community. Nicholas Doumanis is an Australian historian who has explored the way both Muslims and Christians celebrated St George in 19th century Anatolia.  Greeks, Turks, Armenians who shared this vast area under Ottoman rule all celebrated St George's feast day, in each other's company.  St George wasn't the only metaphysical idea they shared: Dr Doumanis describes shared beliefs in the efficacy of angels and devils, and the practices of attending each other's religious ceremonies, such as rituals around circumcision, baptisms and weddings. He argues that it was the sharing of these liminal spaces that enabled people from different religious traditions to get on together and respect religious boundaries—they found such ways because they wanted to live together well.

What put an end to this co-existence—or what he calls inter-communality—was the emergence of the nation state and ultra-nationalism. In other words, religion didn't cause the wars that displaced and killed hundreds of thousands of people across the Middle East. Rather, nationalism that exploited religious difference was the culprit.

Dr Doumanis's own family history drew him to this study. His grandfather fled the city of Bodrum in Anatolia for the Greek island of Kos in the early part of the 20th century. In his family, as in other Greek refugee families, there was a deal of nostalgia for their Anatolian past. His family had happy memories of a time when Greeks and Turks did not hate each other, a time not recorded in official Greek or Turkish stories. So he went in search of what made Christian-Muslim coexistence possible in 19th century Anatolia.

Saints like St George could be partisan of course. Andreas Bandak points to the way the figure of Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, is assuming 'saintly' proportions among his followers.

Interestingly, one of the motivations for Hezbollah fighters to enter Syria has been to defend against extremist threats a place sacred to a highly significant Shia saint—Sayyeda Zainab,  granddaughter of the Prophet Mohammad and daughter of Ali, the first Shi'i Imam. Her tomb, in a southern Damascus suburb, is a focal point for Shi'i pilgrimage. More than a million people visit her tomb each year, including from Australia.   For a people who believe they are under threat, Sayyeda Zainab is a powerful rallying figure, but interestingly she is also seen as pointing to unity amongst all Muslims, Sunni and Shi'i. 

But whether, after the civil war, she will be seen as a figure of shared heritage or as a sectarian symbol is a moot point.

And there's another question:  given that some saints lose their efficacy or are made obsolete by the passage of time, what new saints will emerge in response to the needs of the time?  Where are the saints who can enable people to transcend their differences and allay their anxieties?

Pope Francis on Homosexual Priests: ‘Who Am I to Judge?’


Pope Francis on Homosexual Priests: ‘Who Am I to Judge?’


 

ROME During an 80-minute news conference on his flight home from participating in World Youth Day in Brazil, Pope Francis told reporters that it was not his job to judge homosexual priests.

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” he said. “The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this, but that they must be integrated into society.”

“The problem is not having this orientation. We must be brothers,” Francis continued. “The problem is lobbying by this orientation, or lobbies of greedy people, political lobbies, Masonic lobbies, so many lobbies. This is the worse problem.”

The pope had also been asked about the alleged homosexual lobby in the Vatican, which he denied. He stated that he had investigated the claim and found it to be unsubstantiated.

“There’s a lot of talk about the gay lobby, but I’ve never seen it on the Vatican ID card,” he joked. “When I meet a gay person, I have to distinguish between their being gay and being part of a lobby.”

When reporters inquired about the issue of divorce and remarriage, the pope said that the Roman Catholic Church should be more merciful regarding the issue.

“This theme always comes up. … I believe this is a time of mercy, a change of epoch. It’s a kairos moment for mercy,” he replied. “In terms of communion for those who have divorced and remarried, it has to be seen within the larger pastoral context of marriage.”
“When the council of eight cardinals meets Oct. 1-3, one of the things they’ll consider is how to move forward with the pastoral care of marriage,” Francis continued. “Also, just 15 days ago or so, I met the secretary of the Synod of Bishops, and maybe it will also focus on the pastoral care of marriage. It’s complicated.”

While Francis’ comments refusing to “judge” homosexuality were seen as conciliatory in tone to some–though retaining the Church’s belief that sexual activity between those of the same gender is sinful–others assert that his statements now present serious problems. Mike Gendron of Proclaming the Gospel Ministries, a former Roman Catholic, told Christian News Network that Francis’ words are at odds with both Scripture and the statements of the previous pope, Benedict XVI–and that popes are to be infallible according to Roman Catholic doctrine.

“There are two issues here: One is that the word of God has already judged homosexuality, but secondly, you’ve got a papal infallibility [conflict],” he explained. “You’ve got two popes now disagreeing on what is definitely an issue of faith and morals. One pope says that homosexual men should be barred [from the priesthood], and now the new pope says that he is not to judge gays as long as they’re seeking God. So, it’s a contradiction and infallibility is at stake here.”

Gendron said that by failing to outline what the Scriptures state about homosexuality, Francis is causing eternal harm to the souls of men.

“The pope is doing homosexual men a disservice by in essence giving them a license to continue in their sin,” he explained. “The only way to seek the Lord if you’re gay is to repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And it is not just homosexuals; anyone who is sexually immoral is living contrary to sound Biblical teaching.”

“Those people who do not repent and trust Jesus to not only save them from the punishment of sin, but also from the power of sin–the power of homosexuality–[will perish],” Gendron continued. “The pope should be calling these people to repentance. That’s their only hope.”

Former ‘Archbishop’ Desmond Tutu: I Much Rather Prefer to Go to Hell Than a ‘Homophobic Heaven’



Former ‘Archbishop’ Desmond Tutu: I Much Rather Prefer to Go to Hell Than a ‘Homophobic Heaven’


 

CAPE TOWN During a news conference introducing a United Nations homosexual rights campaign, former African Angelican archbishop and anti-apartheid activist Desmond Tutu told reporters that he would rather go to Hell than a “homophobic Heaven.”

“I would refuse to go to a homophobic Heaven. No, I would say, ‘Sorry, I would much rather go to the other place,’” Tutu, 81, stated. “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

He made the comments Friday at a news conference for the UN’s “Free and Equal” campaign in Cape Town, South Africa, which was spearheaded by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The campaign seeks to gain equality for homosexuals worldwide, including in Africa, where most nations oppose or criminalize sexual activity between those of the same gender.

“I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid,” Tutu said. “For me, it is at the same level.”

The former Angelican leader was joined by human rights Commissioner Navi Pillay and Justice Edwin Cameron.

“A campaign like this is critical right now because of the enormous human rights violations suffered by LGBT people,” Pillay said. “In more than a third of the world, consensual same-sex conduct remains a criminal offense.”

“This campaign is timely; it is essential,” asserted Cameron. “May it become a source of light. May it become a source of rejoicing. May it become a source of self-identification and a claiming of humanity … because in denying [homosexuals] humanity, you deny your own.”

However, as previously reported, some African leaders view homosexuality as being destructive to their nation, and both Christians and Muslims alike have spoken out against legalizing sexual contact between those of the same sex.

“Speaker, we cannot sit back while such [a] destructive phenomenon is taking place in our nation,” stated a petition presented to Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga of Uganda last year. “We therefore, as responsible citizens, feel duty-bound to bring this matter to your attention as the leader of Parliament … so that lawmakers can do something to quickly address the deteriorating situation in our nation.”

As the country has been working on legislation to ban homosexual conduct, some note that the greatest opposition has not been from the Ugandan people, but from the international community.

“The bill has indeed experienced the greatest fight from mostly international governments that have allowed their morals to decay and eventually erode away in disguise of ‘human rights,’” Restore Uganda Director Okumu Yudah Tadeo told Christian News Network. “According to Uganda’s cultural and religious values that have helped to keep morals in the country, it is in Uganda’s best interest to keep up the good morals and Godly values in this generation and the generations to come.”

“[T]his situation is very similar to what Paul says in Romans 1:24-31,” he continued, quoting from Scripture, “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. … Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”

Pentecostal Prosperity Pastors and their ignorance of the bible version controversy: Bishop David Kiganda mis- interprets Pastor Solomon Male’s stance against divorce




Hebrews 13:4 - Marriage [is] honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Bishop Kiganda and His new wife Cindy Kiganda 


Bishop Kiganda and his old Wife HADIJA NASEJJE KIGANDA


Matthew 5:32 - But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.


Bishop David Kiganda who recently married a wife from Zimbabwe after divorcing his former wife has been parading the argument that his action is right because divorce is permitted in  Mathew 19:9 according to him. He bases his defense on the problematic Luganda Anglican version of the bible which is similar to the NIV: The counterfeit NIV says in Matthew 19:9 that:

I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”


And its problematic  sister Luganda bible says:  


Era mbagamba nti Buli anaagobanga mukazi we, wabula okumulanga ogw'obwenzi, n'awasa omulala, ng'ayenze: n'oyo awasa eyagobebwa ng'ayenze.(Luganda bible)


Other counterfeit translations translate Mathew 19:9 as follows:

And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.” (New American Standard Bible (NASB))


8-9 Jesus said, “Moses provided for divorce as a concession to your hard heartedness, but it is not part of God’s original plan. I’m holding you to the original plan, and holding you liable for adultery if you divorce your faithful wife and then marry someone else. I make an exception in cases where the spouse has committed adultery.” (The Message (MSG))

`And I say to you, that, whoever may put away his wife, if not for whoredom, and may marry another, doth commit adultery; and he who did marry her that hath been put away, doth commit adultery.' (Young's Literal Translation (YLT))


The indomitable King James Version translates Mathew 19:9 as follows:


Matthew 19:9 - And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except [it be] for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.


Before I show you why KJV translators used the word fornication, let me prove to you that the above bible translations are of the devil, because they tell lies, yet we know that God is not a liar , it is the devil who is called the father of lies (John 8:44). For example the KJV translates Mark 1:1-2 as follows:


The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Now verse two is found in Malachi 3:1 and verse 3 is found is Isaiah 40:3 , so,  that is why KJV translators translated it as ; it is written in the prophets. Which prophets?? Of course, Isaiah and Malachi.  The verse ‘’ Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee’’ is not found anywhere in the book of Isaiah.

Now, let us see how Bishop David Kiganda’s counterfeit bible versions tell lies when  it comes to translating Mark 1:1-2:

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
    who will prepare your way”—
“a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.’” (New International Version (NIV))

1Okusooka kw'enjiri ya Yesu Kristo, Omwana wa Katonda. 2 Nga bwe kyawandiikibwa mu nnabbi Isaaya nti Laba, nze ntuma omubaka wange mu maaso go, Alirongoosa oluguudo lwo; 3 Eddoboozi lye ayogerera waggulu mu ddungu nti Mulongoose oluguudo lwa Mukama, Muluŋŋamye amakubo ge;(Luganda bible)


The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Who shall prepare thy way.The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight;


1-3 The good news of Jesus Christ—the Message!—begins here, following to the letter the scroll of the prophet Isaiah.Watch closely: I’m sending my preacher ahead of you;
He’ll make the road smooth for you.
Thunder in the desert!
Prepare for God’s arrival!
Make the road smooth and straight! (The Message (MSG))

These counterfeits also call the Lord Jesus Christ a son of gods(Daniel 3:25) and contradict the fact that David killed Goliath(2 Samuel 21:19) ; The new NIV has collected this verse after being exposed.

Attack on the bible
Therefore, we can not trust these bibles when it comes to authoritatively teaching about divorce. 

In May this year Pastor Solomon Male challenged Bishop David Kiganda’s reliance on counterfeit bible versions to defend his divorce . The wise Pastor Solomon Male quoted from the King James bible.

Read: The day Pastor Solomon Male biblically Challenged Bishop David Kiganda Divorce & Remarriage



Pastor Male Rightly argues that Mathew 19:9 allows a man to divorce his wife in case of fornication. According to the Jewish culture chastity and virginity for that matter was a highly esteemed virtue. Therefore a Jewish man could divorce his wife in case he discovered that she was not a virgin or in case the woman fornicated before marriage.



24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 24)

 


18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 1)


Bishop Michael Kyazze wedded Pastors David and Cindy Kiganda at his Omega healing centre: He has preached on the view that the bible allows divorce on Pastor Kiganda's Kingdom fm radio


Pastor Male never said in his letter that a gentile Christian should divorce his wife in case he found her not a virgin

Bishop Kiganda has said on his radio that Pastor male has come up with a new teaching that allows male Christians to divorce their wives in case the they discover that they are not virgins. Pastor male did not apply this scripture to gentile Christians.  Pastor Male’s letter has no such thing. Pastor Male has categorically stated that the bible preaches forgiveness and reconciliation as far as Christians are concerned. Dear Bishop David Kiganda you should apologies to Pastor Solomon Male for misunderstanding his letter.

There is no way Mattew 19:9 can apply to you Pastor Kiganda unless you want to declare your self a Pharisee pastor

In Matthew 19:19  Jesus was addressing him self to Pharisees with hard rebellious hearts. It is a shame for a born again Christian to associate himself or herself with rebellious hard hearted Pharisees. Remember the Pharisees  operated under the old  covenant. There is no way a new testament Christian, who was washed by the blood of Jesus can associate with such a Pharisee attitude. God hates divorce and there is no verse in the bible whatsoever that allows a born again Christian to divorce his wife. There is averse that allows Pharisees or biological  Jews  to divorce in case their wives committed fornication before marriage. There is also a verse in counterfeit bible translations such as the NIV and the Luganda bible that allows Pharisees and biological Jews to divorce in case of sexual immorality or adultery or whoredom-whatever that means!!

Falling into the same error of supporting tithing for born again Christians using Matthew 23:23  

In Mathew 23 the Lord Jesus Christ calls Pharisees hypocrites and serpents. In Matthew 23: 23 the Lord supports the tithing of the Pharisees but rebuked them for neglecting justice , mercy and faith. Now, prosperity  pastors such as  Bishop David Kiganda have used this verse to argue that Jesus approved tithing for born again Christians. Tithing was part and parcel of the law and hence the old covenant  and hence the  Pharisees were right to keep that. In the new testament tithing does not make sense simply because we are not under the law anymore. That is why the apostles never tithed and never quoted Malachi 3:8 to intimidate Christians that they are under the curse for not tithing. So, Bishop David Kiganda, one of your major problems is understanding the context of scripture. That is why you support divorce and tithing.


ENFORCED TITHING

TITHING: A MERE PROSPERITY GOSPEL HOAX


http://watchmanafrica.blogspot.com/2010/10/tithing-mere-prosperity-gospel-hoax.html

 

Bishop Kiganda’s bible has so many errors and hence can not be trusted

One of the of the major weaknesses of the Pentecostal prosperity movement in Uganda is the love and trust in emotions instead of God’s word. Last Sunday a Pentecostal pastor was reading from Jeremiah 1, a verse where Jeremiah told  God that I’m only a child but according to this pastor’s New Literally Translation bible, Jeremiah said I’m a youth. The pastor’s interpreter was reading a bible where Jeremiah said I’m a child , while the pastor read ,I’m a youth. It is surprising that this ‘spirit filled’ pastor can not see that youth and child are not the same. That is why the devil looks at ignorance of the word in the Pentecostal movement and he laughs. How can you talk of revival when pastors are not aware that they are drinking from bibles  contaminated by the devil.

For example the Luganda bible :


lies that Erukanani killed Goliath

Awo ne waba nate entalo n'Abafirisuuu e Gobu; awo Erukanani mutabani wa Yaale-ole-gimu Omubesirekemu n'atta Goliyaasi Omugitti, olunyago lw'effumu lye lwaliŋŋnga omuti ogulukirwako engoye. (2 Samwiri Essuula 21:19)

It calls Jesus a son of gods

N'addamu n'ayogera nti Laba, nze ndaba abasajja bana nga basumuluddwa, nga batambulira wakati mu muliro, so nga tebaliiko kabi: n'okufaanana kw'ow'okuna kulinnanga omwana wa bakatonda. Danieri Essuula 3:25)

It tells lies

1Okusooka kw'enjiri ya Yesu Kristo, Omwana wa Katonda. 2 Nga bwe kyawandiikibwa mu nnabbi Isaaya nti Laba, nze ntuma omubaka wange mu maaso go, Alirongoosa oluguudo lwo; 3 Eddoboozi lye ayogerera waggulu mu ddungu nti Mulongoose oluguudo lwa Mukama, Muluŋŋamye amakubo ge;(Luganda bible)( Makko Essuula 1:1-3)


It calls Jesus a sinner..remember Jesus got hungry a number of times

naye nange mbagamba nti buli muntu asunguwalira muganda we, alizza omusango; (Matayo Essuula 2:22)



Pastor Robert Kayanja’s emotional miracle moments and emotional revival:

How can you talk of revival when Christians can not even differentiate a genuine from  a counterfeit bible translation??



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z-3vZv3VrQ&list=PLfYpzFEdGKrXoNYWqLb89i9HO4TK1XrpO



How about Matthew 5:27-28  Bishop David Kiganda 


I remember one time I foolishly supported a certain church elder’s divorce and re-marriage. Fortunately,  the church elder came back to his senses and went back to his wife before divorcing and re-marrying. After this incident  I started reflecting seriously on Matthew 5:27-28. When it comes to adultery, which we men take as ground for divorce because of reading  counterfeit bible versions, we usually think about it in terms of the physical i.e. having physical sexual intercourse with a man. However, adultery is also an issue of the heart according to Matthew 5:27-28. If adultery is an issue of the heart how many times have married men cheated on their wives. Dear Pastor Kiganda, how many times did you cheat on your wife in the heart when you were still a young Christian or even a mature Christian. According to the word of God, the one who cheats physically and the one who cheats ‘spiritually’ or metaphysically are all adulterers.  If men were to be honest, we would never support  the divorce of our sisters who have been caught in   physical adultery. 


Bishop Kiganda attacks the King James Bible 


Bishop Kiganda thinks that the translation of the KJV in Matthew 19:9 is a fake one. According to him before the KJV, the bible was already there. He seems to think that the KJV is so recent to be trusted. He needs to know that the year of translation is not important but rather the manuscripts from which it is translated. The KJV is translated from the received text and the mosoretic text. It is  no doubt the best English translation. It is the best because it is had best  translators, superior text and superior method of translation. We need a Luganda bible based on the mosoretic and received text, other wise, the Anglican Luganda bible  that is being used by born again Christians in Uganda has so many problems as shown above. Many born Christian are using bibles from the sinaticus and vaticanus catholic manuscripts as well as the Hort and westcort Alexandrian texts.

How to sport a counterfeit bible ?


"The King James Only Controversy: Can You Trust the Modern Translations?"

The word fornication in Matthew 19:9 makes no sense : oh really!!!

According to Bishop David Kiganda, the word ‘fornication’ in  Matthew 19:9 makes no sense to married people because it talks about people who are not yet husband and wife. Of course it seems not to make sense because this scripture has nothing to do with gentile Christians although we think we can force it to apply to Christians by reading from counterfeit bible versions. It has to do with Jews under the mosaic law and not Christians of the new testament. Please!!! Please mind the context of scripture.



You have Opened the Pandora box  

Dear Bishop David Kiganda, you have opened the pandora box because some Christians are going to emulate what you have done. How will you tell Christians in your church to forgive or reconcile when you your self did not live up to this example? Do not be surprised when even women use the same verse to divorce their husbands. Do you know that some pastors, elders and born again Christians in Uganda have already fathered children out of wedlock? What will you do if these women who have been so patient with their adulterous husbands swing into action and decide to divorce by using your so called Matthew 19:9 translation .   

God bless you

African American Facebooker challenges racial profiling in the Trayvon Martin-Zimmerman case using common sense and simple logic




I am Trayvon Martin..



The picture on the left was taken when I was 17 years old, had just graduated from high school, and really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. Based on my appearance in this picture, you probably would have labeled me a thug or a trouble maker. I only graduated in the top 50% of my class and I took my ACT 4 times. A promising future in college doesn't look too well at this point does it?



But at age 17 (Trayvon's age when murdered), I didn't realize how much I would be judged and stereotyped for the clothes I wore and my physical appearance. Two months after that picture on the left was taken, I entered college and quickly realized that I wasn't pushing myself to be the best I can be. I hardly studied in high school but as as freshman in college I began to study daily. As a matter of fact, I did so well that I was able to participate in a summer medical internship at Yale University. I then went on to graduate from Prairie View A&M University Magna Cum Laude and in two weeks I will be attending Texas A&M Health Science College of Medicine to become a medical doctor.



The picture on the right is where I am now just four years later at the age of 21. The reason I am sharing this with you is because I COULD HAVE BEEN TRAYVON MARTIN!!! The defense team could have gone onto the internet and found pictures of me that were similar to Trayvon's pictures and characterized me as a thug. They would have then portrayed me as the aggressor and as a result it lead to my death. If that would have happened, then I would not have had the opportunity to reach my true calling, which is a medical doctor. My White Coat ceremony is in four days and it marks the next step in my journey. I could have been laying in a casket with a black suit, instead of of being in a white coat trying to save lives.



When I was 17, no one would have imagined that I would be doing so well and on my way to medical school. Who is to say that could not have happened to Trayvon Martin if he was still alive? He could have been the next doctor, lawyer, engineer, teacher ,etc.


My prayers go out to his family and friends.


Please share my story so people can be more conscious of their racial profiling. Everyone has the potential, as long as they are alive, to achieve greatness and make a positive impact on this world.

Pat Robertson Defends George Zimmerman's Decision To Follow Trayvon Martin (VIDEO) : Judge Greg Mathis Gives His Take On The George Zimmerman Case



 

Pat Robertson Defends George Zimmerman's Decision To Follow Trayvon Martin (VIDEO)


The Huffington Post  |  By Hunter Stuart

Posted:   |  Updated: 07/16/2013 4:32 pm EDT

Conservative televangelist Pat Robertson defended George Zimmerman in Monday's broadcast of the Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club."

Responding to co-host Terry Meeuwsen's point that Zimmerman was following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin when a 911 dispatcher asked him not to, Robertson implied that recent incidents in the area committed by hooded criminals justified his decision to do so.

"There had been some crime in the area, and the criminals were wearing these hoods, and so, it's one of those things," Robertson said.

Martin was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, known as a "hoodie," when Zimmerman ultimately shot him in the chest in February 2012. An autopsy determined Martin died of the gunshot wound.

The hoodie became an important symbol in the controversy that ensued after Martin's death. Though he later apologized, Fox News host Geraldo Rivera said Martin's hoodie was as much responsible for his death as George Zimmerman. Meanwhile, protesters, NBA players and politicians wore hoodies to show their support for Martin and his family.

On Saturday, an all-female jury found Zimmerman not guilty in Martin's death.


Judge Greg Mathis Gives His Take On The George Zimmerman Case

Posted Wednesday, July 17th 2013 @ 4pm

Judge Greg Mathis called into the Steve Harvey Morning Show to talk about the George Zimmerman case and the criminal justice system.

Mathis claims Zimmerman had an unfair advantage in the trial due to the racial makeup of the jury.

He also prompted black communities to vote for positions of government such as judges, mayors and sheriffs that reflect their values and equality.

How the devil uses testimonies on heaven hell to promote false doctrine and a gospel of works: Why all testimonies on hell must be tested with the holy word of God?



Must Read:

Aidah Nakasujja’s Visit to heaven: Fact or Fiction

 



Dear saints, most of you are very amused by testimonies on heaven and hell but are very weak to test these testimonies with the holy word of God. Most of these testimonies are so disconnected from the word of God and are therefore  counterfeits of satan. The purpose of these testimonies is to promote false doctrine and the gospel of works. For example, according to the testimony of the pastor below, when he met Jesus in heaven, Jesus asked him the following questions:  

“How much time did you spend reading the Word (bible)?
How much did you give of offerings?
How many times have you evangelized to people?
Did you tithe properly?
How much time did you spend in prayer?”

Does it mean that even Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah witnesses who fulfilled these conditions go to heaven?? Are we saved by works or grace( Eph.2:8)

The pastor also says that many pastors, elders and deacons were in hell because:

THEY DID NOT KEEP SUNDAYS HOLY. IN FACT, THEY HAD LOVED TO MAKE MONEY ON SUNDAYS. (Jer. 17:27)



Many of the deacons and elders had criticized the sermon of their pastors.
(PS. 105:15) (Num 12:8-9)



THEY DID NOT TITHE PROPERLY. (Malachi 3:9)


THEY DID NOT PRAY.
They had not evangelized to people at all. (Ezekiel 33:6)



Many of these elders and deacons had harassed their pastors and would come against their authority. They had interfered with the pastor’s duty and business. (Num. 16)



On their death beds, they thought they had done a good job so they did not repent of those things. This is why they were thrown in the fires of Hell.”

By why should Christians go to hell for not tithing properly when Jesus, Joseph and the Apostles of Christ never tithed??? How can God send some one to hell for criticizing a heretical summon of a pastor??? How can a gentile christian go hell for not tithing???

 

Korean Pastor Sees Heaven and Hell - Do only 1 in 1000 make it to heaven?


This Revelation was Given By A Korean Pastor Who Experienced Death at one point in his life and was able to have a glimpse into eternity. The Revelation is so powerful and Life Transforming. Doubts Might Arise from the fact of how true this might be but you need to judge the revelation with the word of GOD to see if most of the truths in it are written in the Bible. Take the Time to read through this. God Bless.

Heaven and Hell:
A Thousand to One
By Rev. Park, Yong Gyu.


In 1987, Reverend Park had died from high blood pressure. But by the grace of God, his life was extended for another 20 years. However, for the first four years, he was not able to speak due to his condition. He was about 50 years old when he had come back to life. During his death, the Lord showed him to Heaven and Hell.



I want you to know if you are arrogant and prideful, you will bring curses upon yourself. I had a mega church of 5000 members but I was struck down by God due to my arrogance. Now I fear God. (James 4:6)


I used to own property worth about 150 million US dollars. I owned five luxury cars. But after my death experience, I gave it all away. Please remember, salvation cannot be achieved by your possessions but through faith. And now I plead to the deacons, elders, and the other leaders in their churches to serve your pastors with all your heart.


On December 19, 1987, after I had finished my lunch and while I was resting, I began to feel excruciating pain, it was so unbearable that I felt as though I was going to die. Then I lost consciousness. I woke up four months later in a vegetated state, and my doctor told me that I would eventually die. All my body parts were mangled very badly from the paralysis. And my family had never allowed any of the church members to visit due to my horrible appearance. Then I finally died.


When I died, I saw two people enter my room. But these people had entered into my room through the wall. I screamed, “Who, who are you!! My house will crumble down if you do that!!” Then one said, “We are angels descended from Heaven. We are from God’s kingdom.” A brilliant light shinned from the angels.


The angel to my right introduced himself. “I run errand for Jesus in His kingdom. Jesus called me and commanded me to go down to the Earth. He commanded me to take you to Heaven. You are dead. But since your family cries out with so much sadness, He desires to grant you a little more time to live. But for now, He desires to show you Heaven and Hell. He will show you and you will witness to the people of the Earth. May the number of people who end up in Hell be decreased and the number of people going to Heaven increased through your testimony. This will be your mission. God instructed us to tell you not to delay. If you delay, you will not be able to visit Heaven and Hell.”


Then the angel to my left said, “The moment you were born and until the moment you had died, I had been with you.” At that time, I did not understand what the angel had meant. Now I know. He was my guardian angel. So I said, “I cannot go! I will not go! I am a pastor! I cannot meet the Lord in this physical condition. I want to see Him as a healthy person. I would probably be receiving more rebukes than compliments from the Lord. I am prideful and arrogant and now I am cursed and sick. How am I able to enter Heaven? I am so scared. Please go back to Heaven and ask the Lord to heal me. Then come back and take me to Heaven through my dream. Please ask for mercy on my behalf.”


But the angels were not listening to my arguments. They took my clothes off and said that they were too filthy to be wearing in Heaven. They then clothed me in a white gown. (Zech 3:4)


They grabbed my hands and we flew straight up to Heaven. We flew through the clouds and as I looked down, I saw the Earth becoming smaller. They let me go near an endless Golden Street. I saw a brilliant shining light, too bright to look directly at. I said, “Where is the light coming from?” “It is from Heaven” the angel responded.


I thought, “Wow! It is huge!” I saw groups of people in white gowns flying ahead. “Who are they?” I asked.


The angel replied, “They are the ones who had served God faithfully and trusted in Jesus by obeying and following the lead of the Holy Spirit with all their heart. Their bodies are dead on Earth. They are now the souls heading toward Heaven.”


The other angel continued, “There are twelve gates in Heaven. When a saved soul comes to Heaven, they must enter through one of those gates.” We were standing in the south gate but it was closed. As we were waiting, I asked the angel, “Angels, why is this gate not opening?”


The angel replied, “It is because you are not singing the Heavenly worship song.” (Psalms 100:4)


I asked, “Angels, I was very prideful and arrogant and as a result I was cursed with sickness. I am not good at singing Earthly worship songs. How am I able to sing Heavenly worship songs when I had never heard it before?”


The angel replied, “You are correct. But you must still prepare yourself to worship. You are a prideful person but prepare to sing.” The angels began to sing. As they sang, I began to sing with them. It became natural to me, and we entered in.


The scene of Heaven was indescribable. I can’t describe Heaven with my Earthly words. I said, “Lord! Thank you so much! Even though, I was very prideful and arrogant and cursed with a sickness, You have still brought me to Heaven to show me around.”


I then heard the voice of God, “My beloved Pastor Park, Yong Gyu, I welcome you. You have made a long journey here.” His voice was overflowing with love and tenderness.


I replied back crying in tears, “Lord,….” The angels immediately said, “you have been a pastor for 20 years. Do you not know your scriptures? There are no tears in Heaven. Please stop it!” I was not even able to cry. (Rev. 21:4)


The Lord then asked me five questions.
“How much time did you spend reading the Word (bible)?
How much did you give of offerings?
How many times have you evangelized to people?
Did you tithe properly?
How much time did you spend in prayer?”

I could not answer the fifth question. The Lord rebuked me for the fifth question.


“After you had become a mega church pastor, you had become very lazy with prayer. Being busy is no excuse to Me!” I had to repent of it later. “The angels will show you many places in Heaven and of Hell. Look around as much as you desire. You will leave after witnessing many different places in Heaven and Hell.” But the Lord did not allow me to see His appearance.


The angels first took me to three different places in Heaven.
In the first place, I saw little children living together.


The second place was where the adults lived.


The third place was where the souls had barely made it to Heaven. Even though they made it to Heaven, they had made it shamefully.


Many people had asked me how old the little children were. They appeared like kindergartens. They were not the little boys or girls as we would know of gender. Each child had their own baby angel to accompany them.


In Heaven, most of the souls will have their own individual home. (John 14:2) However, there were some who did not have homes. I will explain this later. Moreover, the children did not have their own individual homes either. I asked, “The children are also souls, why do they not have their own homes?”


The angel replied, “Just as the people on Earth require materials to build their homes, we in Heaven also need materials to build here. When a person serves the church and others faithfully unto the Lord, those deeds will become materials for a person’s home in Heaven.


When the materials are provided, the angels assigned to build a saint’s home will go to work on constructing it. The children who are below the accountability age have not built up any materials to build a home. In other words, they did not have the time or chance to earn their rewards/materials. This is why they do not have homes.”


I continued with my questions, “What shall I do on Earth to provide more materials for my home?”


The angels replied, “There are seven things one must do to build up their materials to build their home.
The first is their accumulation of worship and praise to God.

The second is their time spent reading the bible.

Third, their time spent praying.

Fourth, their time spent evangelizing to people.

Fifth, one’s offering to the Lord.

Sixth, their obedient tithes to God.

Lastly, their time spent serving the church in any way.

These are the deeds or works of obedience in which one accumulates materials for their Heavenly home. If one is lacking in these areas, they will have no materials to build their home.”


There were numerous people in Heaven without homes. Many who did not have homes were actually pastors, deacons, deaconesses, elders, etc. I asked out of curiosity, “Where do the children live then?”


The angels replied, “They live here.” As I looked around, they were gathered throughout the garden of flowers. The garden of flowers was so beautiful and the fragrance was out of this world. The scene was beyond what I could describe with my words.


The second place was for faithful adults. There is a difference between salvation and rewards. This place had so many homes. The homes were built with beautiful gems and rare stones. Some of the homes were as high as the highest skyscrapers on Earth. Those people who had faithfully served the Lord while living on Earth had their homes built with beautiful gems and rare stones. In this particular place, all the people looked around the age of 20 to 30 years old. There were no men or women in regards to gender. There are no sick, old, or lame people.


I once knew an elder named, Oh, Im Myung. He had died at the age of 65 years old. He was a very short man, as tall as 2nd graders in elementary school. He had suffered from a rare disease called rickets. However, when it came to the bible, he was a PHD. He had written many commentaries. I met him in Heaven, and there he was tall and handsome. He was no longer sick but healthy. Heaven is a very wonderful place!! I am so full of expectations! Please believe what I am saying beloved people!


The third place was for those who were shamefully saved. (1 Cor. 3:15) This particular village was enormous in size, several times bigger than the second place, where the homes were made of gems and rare stones. I arrived at this place at great speed, riding a golden chariot. It was very far from the other beautiful places I saw in Heaven.


I asked the angels, “I see great wilderness and fields. Why do I not see homes?” The angel replied, “What you are seeing are homes.”


I saw huge wide flat houses, which reminded me of a large chicken coop or some type of warehouse. These homes were not glorious, but shabby. This village and homes were for the souls who were shamefully saved. There were numerous large sized shabby looking homes. This village is several times bigger than the place where rewarded souls reside.


The angel said, “Do you see the two large homes, one to your right and one to your left? I answered, “Yes, I do see them.”


The angel said that he wanted to show me those two houses specifically. He said, “The right home is for those who were pastors on the Earth. The left home is for those who were elders on the Earth.” As we arrived to the front of the two homes, I noticed they were humongous. My jaw dropped. When we opened the door and entered, my first impression was, ‘chicken coop.’ Instead of thousands of chickens living in their coop, I saw souls. The angels advised me to observe very carefully because I would recognize some famous pastors from history. It was true. I recognized many pastors from history. I specifically picked out one pastor and asked the angel, “I know that Korean pastor! I know how famous he was and the work he had done for the Lord. Why is he here? I do not understand.”


The angels answered, “He never provided any building materials for his home. This is why he is living in a community home.”


I asked out of curiosity, “How did this happen? Why did he not have any materials?” The angel answered, “While he was a pastor performing the functions as a pastor, he had loved to be complimented by the people. He had loved to be honored. He had loved to be served. There was no sacrifice and servitude on his part.” This particular pastor was greatly honored in Korea and is an icon within the Korean Christian history. But he had no reward!!


You pastor out there, please listen! You have to lead people to more than just Sunday morning services. You must visit them in their homes. You must take care of the poor, the lame and old. The pastors who have served without sacrificing their lives and loved to be honored have no reward in Heaven. (Matt 23:5-12)


After I had witnessed this scene in Heaven and after I had come back to the Earth, I immediately gave all of my possessions away including my five luxury vehicles. Our life is but a moment. In the bible, the average life is about 70 to 80 years old. But it is only God who knows when a person will die. Anyone can die before the age of 70 or 80 years old. I had decided to give everything away, even my clothes. The people I saw had received salvation in shame. They were pastors, elders, deacons, and lay believers. There were multitudes of elders and deacons in this flat shabby home. But of course, it is much better than Hell. However, why would anyone want to enter Heaven in such a way? I will not end up in that shameful place. Their clothes were even shabby.


What are the requirements for Christians to receive such beautiful homes in Heaven? First, we have to evangelize to as many people as possible. How should we evangelize? The angel told me, “Assume there is an unbeliever who does not know the Lord. The moment you decide to evangelize to that particular person, the building materials for your homes will be provided. As you unceasingly pray for their salvation, more building materials are provided. You must continue to check up on them, visiting them and continue your evangelizing. This will add more materials to your home. If a person says he/she cannot make it to church because they do not have nice clothes, then you must provide them with some. If the person says he/she does not have a bible, you must provide one. If a person says he/she does not have glasses to read, you must provide it for them. You must provide whatever you are able too so this person can be led to the Lord. Those who live in the best homes are those who had evangelized many times.”


The angel then escorted me to the place where the saints lived in nice homes. This is where saints who had evangelized much lived. It felt like downtown Heaven.


In Christian history, there are four people who have the biggest and most beautiful homes. The angel showed me the home of American evangelist D.L. Moody, British Pastor John Wesley, an Italian evangelist, and Korean Evangelist Pastor Choi, Gun Nung. These four people have the largest homes in Heaven. These four had spent their whole lives evangelizing to people even through up to the time of their deaths.


Within the Korean believers, there was a lay believer who had a large home. This lay believer had built many church buildings with his all his possessions. He had given three thousand bags of rice to the poor. He secretly helped thousands of pastors and leaders with their finance. He helped students studying theology or in bible school with their tuitions. He had also taken in a pastor (65 years old) into his home and took good care of him. His own church had kicked him out.


I heard an angel shout, “The materials are coming!” I questioned the angel to my right about the materials and he told me, “These materials are for a deaconess from a small church who is from the country. In fact, she receives materials every day. Even though she is poor, she comes to early morning service each day. She prays for 87 church members daily. When she finishes praying, she cleans up the church.”


I heard another angel shout, “Special delivery! The daughter of the deaconess has given what little money she had to her mother. However, the deaconess did not spend it on herself. She bought five eggs and two pairs of socks for the church pastor. Even though it may appear to be a small offering, she had given all she had for the day. This became special materials for her home in Heaven.”


Second, those who also have a large home are those who have built church buildings or other buildings for Kingdom purpose with their possessions and resources.


In Heaven, I also met an elder named Choi. Among all the Korean elders and deacons who are in Heaven, he had the most beautiful home. His home was much higher than the tallest building in Korea. Choi had built many churches in Korea with his wealth.


I asked the angel, “How about my house? Is it in the process of being built? The angel said, “Yes it is.” I begged to see my house. But they told me it was not allowed. I continued to beg and after some persistent begging, the angels said that the Lord will now allow it.


We entered the chariot and traveled very far to another place. I was full of expectation. I asked, “Where is my house?” The angel replied, “It is over there!” But it looked as though the place was only a foundation, only ready for development. I cried out, “How could you do this to me? How could this be happening? How can my house be in a developing zone? Surviving the Korean War, I sold my only home to build a church. This church eventually grew to five thousand members. I wrote many books inspired by the Holy Spirit. One book became a best seller. With the proceeds from the books, I built Christian schools. The school birthed 240 pastors. During tenure as the dean, I had given out over 400 scholarships to over 400 poor children. I have built homes for the widows to live in. This all cost huge amounts of money. So how could this be? Why is my home in a land development? I am so upset!”


The angel replied sternly, “You do not deserve to live in such a beautiful nice home in Heaven because you have been honored by people countless times. Every time you had built or done something good, you were praised by people. You were even honored by the secular news. Therefore, all your works are in vain.” (Matt 6:1)


I looked at my home in the development zone. It was located in the middle of three other homes. It only had three stories. The house had many small rooms on the first two floors. I asked the angel, “Why do I have such small rooms?” The angel answered, “These rooms are for your sons and daughters.”


“I only have four children,” I replied. The angel responded, “No, they are not for your Earthy children, but for the ones you had evangelized and are saved.” I loved it! I asked, “Where is my master bedroom?” The angel said that it was on the roof. That bothered me. My room was not even finished. In an angry tone I said, “It is so small! Why is it so difficult to finish?” The angel replied, “You are not even dead. We cannot finish your home or rooms because we do not know if more materials will be provided. Do you understand?”


When we entered my room, I saw two certificates hanging on my wall, so I went to read them. The first certificate described when I was 18 years old living in an orphanage. On Christmas day, I was on my way back to the early morning church service. I had seen an elderly man shivering on the street. I took my jacket off and gave it to him. That deed had given me a reward in Heaven. The second certificate described the same incident but it was for buying some bread with the little money I had for the elderly man. The amount is not the issue. The act must be accompanied by genuine faith. The dollar amount has no significance.


We left the place and headed back out. During the ride, one of the angels asked, “Are you sad? I will tell you how to have a beautiful home built. The Lord said when you go back to the Earth, you must go to tell the people about Heaven and Hell as you have witnessed. Second, the Lord desires you to build a place to gather elderly female pastors and evangelists who do not have places to go or live. If you truly faithfully do these things, you will have a beautiful home.”

Hell

The two angels escorted me to Hell. They said, “Now you will visit Hell.” You have no idea the enormity of Hell. I kept shouting, “It is so big! It is so big!” This is the place where souls who are cursed and receive eternal damnation are placed. It felt like Hell was a thousand times larger than the Earth. Half of Hell was colored red and the other half was pitch dark black. I asked the angels, “Why is this part red?”


The angels replied, “Do you not know? It is burning sulfur. The other half is darkness. When people sin and end up here, they will be tormented from both sides…There are multitudes of churches on the Earth and many of the churches are filled with many people. However, most of them are not true Christians. They are but church attendants. The true churches will firmly believe in Heaven and a Hell. The lives of many Christians are in chaos because they do not firmly believe in Heaven and Hell. When one soul enters Heaven, one thousand cursed souls enter Hell. The rate of Heaven and Hell is 1 to 1000.” (Matt 7:14)


I am a Presbyterian pastor and a well-known speaker. I have graduated from one of the largest theological school in Korea. I never believed those Heaven and Hell stories. But now, I am one who writes such experiences to testify to others. Although you may believe you are a Christian, if you live your life according to the will of demons, you will end up in Hell!


The first place I saw was a place of burning sulfur. You can’t even imagine how hot the fires of Hell are. No one can bear the intense heat.


People in Hell say three statements.
First, it is too hot and they feel like dying. (Luke 16:24)
Second, they are so thirsty and feel like dying.
Third, you will hear many asking for water. (Zech 9:11)


It is eternal! Many people say we are free in Christ and they live their lives as they desire. I asked the angel, “Those who are in here, what have they done?” The angel answered, “The first group is unbelievers.” Those who had not evangelized to their own family must repent!


The angel continued, “The second group is those who believed in Jesus, but did not repent of their sins.” We must repent of our sins and must confess to the Lord. We must not sin. Just giving lip service is not repenting. With a contrite and earnest heart, we must repent!

Christians in Hell

I then saw many pastors, elders, and deacons in Hell. I asked the angel, “I know them. They had served God faithfully while on the Earth. They had died some time ago. We all had thought they were in Heaven with God. But now, I see them all in Hell and they are crying out that it is so hot! Why are they here?” There were so many pastors, elders, deacons and all other lay believers.


The angel answered, “Pastor Park Yong Gyu, a person can appear to be a true follower of Christ on the outside but God knows the heart.

THEY DID NOT KEEP SUNDAYS HOLY. IN FACT, THEY HAD LOVED TO MAKE MONEY ON SUNDAYS. (Jer. 17:27)

Many of the deacons and elders had criticized the sermon of their pastors.
(PS. 105:15) (Num 12:8-9)

THEY DID NOT TITHE PROPERLY. (Malachi 3:9)
THEY DID NOT PRAY.
They had not evangelized to people at all. (Ezekiel 33:6)

Many of these elders and deacons had harassed their pastors and would come against their authority. They had interfered with the pastor’s duty and business. (Num. 16)

On their death beds, they thought they had done a good job so they did not repent of those things. This is why they were thrown in the fires of Hell.”

I then saw a king and a prince who were had first persecuted Christians in Korea. This king and prince beheaded many of the first believers in Korea. They were placed in the center, which was the hottest place of all. I also saw Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, and a famous pastor from North Korea named Pastor Kang, and a famous Japanese hero, and many more.

Then we arrived at an extremely dark place, too dart to see where to step. I shouted, “Angels! Angels! It is so dark! How can I see anything?” The angels patted my shoulder and said, “Just wait a little bit.”

Within a few moments, I was able to see a countless number of naked people. All of them had insects crawling all over their bodies. Not an inch was spared as their whole bodies were completely covered with insects. The naked people attempted to drive the insects away gnashing their teeth. I asked, “What did these people do as they lived on Earth?”

“They are those who have criticized and back stabbed each other. They were not careful of what they had said to one another.” (Matt 5:22)

I saw the demons piercing and stabbing the stomachs of the people with sickles. Their screams were unbearable to me. I asked my escort, “Angels, what did these people do as they had lived on the Earth?

“These people had jobs, houses, and families but they did not give to God. They did not help the poor, their churches, or other Godly purposes. They were very stingy and greedy. Even as they encountered the poor, they ignored them and did not care. They only cared for themselves and their families. They were well clothed, fed, and had a comfortable life. This is why their stomachs are pierced for their bellies were full of greed.” (Proverbs 28:27)

It was a very frightening scene. After witnessing such a scene, when I got back to the Earth, I gave all of my money and possessions to others. Salvation cannot be earned with money or property. It is by faith. Hell is an unbearable and miserable place. It is eternal torment!

I also saw people who had their heads hacked off by a very sharp saw. I asked the angel, “What did these people do to deserve such awful torment?” The angel replied, “Their brains were given by God to think good and beneficial things. But these people had thought of filthy things. They thought of lustful things.” (Matt 5:28)

Next I saw people being stabbed and cut into pieces. The sight was horrible. I asked, “What about these people? What did they do to be tormented in such a way?” The Angel replied, “These were elders and deacons who did not serve their churches. In fact, they did not even want to work or serve! The only things they had loved were to receive and receive from the flock.” (Zech 11:17) (Hosea 6:5)

I saw the elders, deacons, and other lay believers tormented by the demons. The demons made a hole in their tongues and placed wires through the tongues of one another. Then the demons dragged the people with the wire. I asked again, “What did they do on Earth?” The angel answered, “They had committed four different types of sin.

First, they had criticized their pastors. They would speak negative things about their pastors. They were back biting and ridiculing their pastors.”

(James 3:6) (Matt 12:37)

I plead with those who have committed such acts to REPENT, REPENT!!

The angel continued, “Second, they insulted the church with their words. They had harassed other Christians to the point where even the faithful ones were affected and they stopped attending church and even caused some to stop believing. They did all they could to stop faithful Christians from doing God’s work. These wicked ones caused many faithful to stumble. Lastly, there are spouses who drank alcohol and were abusive to their family members.”

I saw demons piercing men and women in their stomachs with a very huge sharp nail. I asked, “What did they do?” The Angel replied, “These are men and women who had lived with one another but were not married. These are guilty of abortions as they also got pregnant. They had never repented.”

I saw another group of people. The demons were slicing their lips as if one thinly slicing meat or vegetables. I asked, “Why are these people tormented in such a way?” The angel said, “These are sons, daughters, son in laws, and daughter in laws who had talked back to their parents. All they had to do was say, ‘I’m sorry’ instead of making things worse. Many of them had used abusive language. They had attacked their parents with harsh language. They were rebellious. This is why their lips are being sliced.”

Brethren, we are all going to die one day, but we don’t know when that will be. Please be prepared. Being prepared is to go to Heaven. When we go is not the issue. Please forgive each other as frequently as necessary if you need too. Repent and repent and do it all day long if you have too.

My beloved brethren, I used to ignore such testimonies. I was a conservative Presbyterian pastor who ignored such things. But now, I must witness and testify to you what I have seen. Please do not hesitate to live a holy life. Please avoid this miserable torment and judgment. Be saved! Do not live for your flesh but submit to the Kingdom of God. Please pray for those who do not know Jesus. Evangelize and bear fruit. Please pray early in the morning and keep Sundays HOLY. Please tithe to the Lord properly. Accumulate your rewards in Heaven and not in this Earth. I pray and bless you in the Almighty Name of JESUS!
