Heaven and Hell: A Thousand to One

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.”

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.

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

上天堂和下地獄的比例是1000比1 (Heaven and Hell : A Thousand to One)

上天堂和下地獄的比例是1000比1 (Heaven and Hell :
A Thousand to One
By Rev。 Park, Yong Gyu)
在1987年朴永固(Park, Yong Gyu)大牧師因高血壓而死,但因上帝的恩典,他的生命被延長20年。然而在開頭的前四年,因為他的體能狀況差,無法說話;當他再活過來時,年約50歲。當他死的時候,上帝向他顯示的天堂和地獄的景象。
我要你們知道,假如你是驕傲且自大的人,將會招咒詛上己身! 我牧養一間擁有5,000名會友的大型教會;但因著驕傲,我被上帝擊倒。現在我變得更敬畏神。(雅 4:6)
我過去擁有約一億五千萬美金的財產及五輛豪華轎車;但在我死又復活的經驗後,我把這些全都給出去。請記得,救贖是藉著信心達成的,而不是靠著你持有的財產。 現在我懇求執事、長老及教會各種幹部,能全心全意地服侍你們的牧者們。
當我死的時候,我看到兩人進入我的房間,但他們是穿越牆壁進我房間;我嘶喊著:『誰? 你們是誰?!你們這麼做,我的房子會崩塌粉碎。』其中一個說:『我們是從天堂下來的天使,是從上帝的國度來的。』一道明亮光線從天使身上照射過來。
然後我左邊的天使說:『打從你一出生直到死亡,我都跟你同在。』在那時候我不了解天使的意思,現今我知道了,他是我的守護天使。但我說:『我不能去! 我不願意去!我是個牧師,我不能夠用這麼差的身體狀況見主,我要用健康人的狀態來見主。我或許將受到主耶穌更多的斥責,而不是誇獎。我既驕傲且自大,現在我被疾病所咒詛,我怎能進天堂呢?我真害怕!請回天堂,並求主醫治我;然後回來,在我睡夢中帶我去天堂。請代替我主求主憐憫我吧! 』
但是,天使不聽我的抗議。他們脫掉我的衣服,並說這些都太髒了,污穢到不能穿到天上去。他們之後為我穿上長袍。(亞 3:4)
他們抓著我的手,我們直接飛向天堂。穿過雲層時,我往下看地球變得越來越小。他們讓我走近一條無盡頭的黃金大道,我看到一道閃耀的光,亮到無法直視。我說:『這光是從哪裏來的? 』天使答說:『它從天堂而來。』
我想著:『哇!真是龐大的一群。』因我看到成群的人們,穿著白袍飛向前頭。我問說:『他們是誰? 』
另一個天使繼續說:『天堂有12個大門,一個得救的靈魂來到天堂,必須從當中的一個大門進入。』我們站在南邊大門,但門還是關著;當我們等待時,我問天使:『為什麼這門不打開呢? 』
天使回答說:『那是因為你沒有唱天堂敬拜詩歌。』(詩 100:4)
我問天使們:『我過去非常傲慢,而結果被疾病所咒詛;我連地上的敬拜詩歌都唱不好,怎麼會唱我未曾聽過的天堂敬拜詩歌呢? 』
天使回答說:『你說的沒錯,但你仍然須預備自己來敬拜。你雖是驕傲,仍可預備去唱。』 當天使開始唱起來時我跟著唱,這樣我越唱越自然,然後我們就進去了。
我流著淚哭著說:『主啊!。。。』天使們立即說:『當了20年的牧師,難道你不記得經上的話嗎?在天堂沒有眼淚。請停止哭泣! 』我立時不能再哭了。
 你花多少時間讀經?
 你奉獻多少?
 你多少次向人傳福音呢?
 你完全的遵行什一奉獻嗎?
 你花多少時間禱告呢? 』
我不能回答這5個問題,主因第5個問題叱責我:『你成為一個大教堂的牧師後,就變成非常懶得禱告。忙碌不是藉口! 』稍後我必須為為此而悔改。 『天使將讓你看多處天堂和地獄的地方。如你所願地四處儘量看看。當你見識天堂和地獄很多不同的地方後,你就會離開 。』但是主並不允許我看他的容貌。
在天堂裡,大部分的靈魂有他們個人的宅舍。(約 14:2)然而,也有些人沒有(稍後我將解釋這點)。進一步說,這些小孩也不擁有個人的家,我問:『小孩也是靈魂,為何他們沒擁有自己的家呢? 』
我繼續問:『在地球上,我該怎樣做才能提供建材蓋我天上的家呢? 』天使回答:『有七件事是一個人必須去做,才能夠提供建材來建造天上的家:
有極多人在天堂沒有個人的家;很多實際上都是牧師、執事、女執事、長老等。 出於好奇,我問:『那這些小孩們住在哪裏呢? 』天使回答:『他們住在這兒。』我四周環顧,發現小孩們聚集滿佈在花園各處。園中之花是多麼漂亮、香味也是世上所沒有的!這景緻是我文字所無法描述的。
我曾經認識一個長老叫做歐應苗(Oh, Im Myung)。 他65歲時去世,個子非常矮,像個小學二年級的孩子。他長年受1種罕見疾病(佝僂症)所苦;然而從對聖經的瞭解來看,他算是博士寫過很多論述。我在天堂遇見他;在那裏他既高大又英俊,不再是殘病而是康健的!天堂是個非常奇妙的地方,我滿心期待上天堂。各位我所親愛的,請相信我正在說的。
第三個地方是給那些勉強得救的靈魂居住的。(林前 3:15)它像個特別聚落,範圍極大、數倍於前述第
我問天使:『我看到極大片的曠野和田地,為何沒有看到房舍呢? 』天使回答:『你所看到的都是他們的家。』
天使說:『你是否看到兩間大房舍,一間在你右邊,一間在你左邊? 』我回答:『有。』
天使說他特別要向我展示這兩間。 他說:『右邊的房子是給那些在世上當傳道人住的;左邊的房舍,則是給那些在世上當長老的。』當我們抵達這兩棟房舍的前面時,我張大嘴合不攏──發現它們是巨大宏偉的。開門進去的第一印象是──雞舍;但有別於常見的數千隻雞──我看到住滿擁擠的靈魂!
天使建議我小心觀察,因為可能認出一些歷史上非常有名的牧師。真的!我果真認出了很多位。我特別地指出一位牧師來問天使:『我知道那位韓國牧師!我知道他是何等的名聲、和他為主所做的事工。他為何在這裏?我真不明白! 』
我出於好奇的問:『這事怎麼造成的呢?為什麼他沒有任何的建材? 』天使答說:『當他在地上擔任牧師職分時,他喜歡被人們奉承、喜歡被尊榮、喜歡被服事,卻不具有僕人服役和犧牲的要素。這位特別的牧師在韓國基督教歷史是個表徵人物,被大大的尊崇,但他沒有得到天國的獎賞! 』
你們這些牧師們請聽好! 你必須服侍人們到一個地步──不傴傴是在禮拜天早上的服事──你必須到他們家中拜訪,必須照顧貧窮、殘障、還有年長的人。 牧師的服事若沒有自我犧牲,反而喜歡被尊榮,那就沒有天上的獎賞。(太 23:5-12)
對基督徒而言,是怎樣的要求才能得到天堂美麗的房屋獎賞呢?首先我們必須儘可能的傳福音給越多的人。我們如何傳福音呢?天使告訴我:『假設有一個未信主的人不認識上帝,你決定要傳福音給那人的瞬間,你天上房舍的建材就已經被提供了;你不停息的為他們的得救祈禱, 就產生愈多的建材。你必須持續守望、探訪他們,繼續傳你的福音,這將添加你房屋的建材。若有人說,他無法去教堂因他沒有合宜的衣服穿,那麼你就須提供他一些;若有人說他沒
有聖經可讀,你就須提供他一本。若有人說沒有眼鏡可看,你就須提供一副…── 提供任何可能的事物引人歸主。那些住在天上豪宅裏的,都是那些一再傳福音的人。』
在基督教歷史有四人擁有最大又最漂亮的房屋。天使給我看的福音佈道家有美國的慕迪(D. L. Moody)、 英國的約翰衛斯理(John Wesley)、 某位義大利福音佈道家、 和韓國崔根能牧師(暫譯自 Choi, Gun Nung)。 這四人在天堂有最雄偉的宅第。他們都花一輩子、去世前都還在傳福音給人們。
在韓國的平信徒當中,也有一位擁有天上豪宅。 他用個人的財力蓋了很多教會建築物;送過3,000袋米給窮人,私下支助數千位牧師、領袖,提供神學生助學金;也把一位65歲、被自己的教會趕逐的牧師帶回家照顧。
我聽到一個天使喊著:『建材來了! 』我問我右邊的天使:『那是什麼材質的建材? 』他告訴我:『這是為一位鄉下小教會的女執事預備的──實際上每天都會收到她的建材──儘管她在世上是貧窮的。她每早上做教會的服事,為87位會友每天禱告,禱告結束後又清掃教會。』
我聽到另一位天使喊著:『特別快遞! 女執事之女將自己微薄的金錢給媽媽,然而女執事沒有花在自己身上。她買了五顆蛋、兩雙襪子給牧師──儘管那看來是個小小的捐獻,她已經給出那一天她所有的──這成為她天堂房舍的特殊建材。』
在天堂我也遇見姓崔 (Choi) 的韓國長老。在所有天堂裏的長老、執事中,他擁有最美麗的房舍,甚至比地面上韓國最高的建築還要高。 崔長老用他本身的財產在韓國建造很多的教會。
我問天使:『那我的房子呢?是否正在建造之中? 』天使回答:『是的。』我祈求能看我的房子,但他們告訴我這是不被允許的。我又繼續堅毅地懇求。天使說主現在允許我去看了。
我們登上馬車旅行到另一個非常遙遠的地方。我充滿期待並問:『房子在那裏? 』天使回答:『在那裏。』但看來那好像只是一個地基,正預備開始建造發展。我忍不住喊著:『你們怎能這樣待我呢?怎能發生這種情況呢?我的房子怎麼才在開發的階段呢?從韓戰倖存之後我賣掉了我傴有的房子蓋了一間教會,這間教會後來成長到500位會友;我寫了很多受聖靈啟示的書籍,其中1本還成為最暢銷書籍。藉著出版書籍的收益,我建立多間基督教學校,產生240位牧師。擔任院長期間,我頒過400份獎學金給超過400位貧窮的孩子。我也為許多寡婦蓋房子給他們住。這些都要花用鉅款!所以怎能這樣呢?為何我的房子還在土地開發階段呢?我真的很不滿!! 』
白費的。』(太 6:1)
看到我的房子在開發中的區域,坐落在其他三座房舍中間。它傴有三層樓,頭兩層有很多小房間。我問天使:『為何我有如此的小房間? 』天使回答:『這些房間是給你的兒子、女兒們。』
『我傴有四個孩子啊! 』我回答。天使回應說:『不!那些不是給你地上的孩子,而是給你所傳福音且得救的孩子住的。』我喜歡這樣的安排!我再問:『我的主臥房在那兒呢? 』天使說它位在近屋頂處。我感到很困惑,我的房間甚至還沒完成!我用生氣的音調說:『它看來真小!為何我的主臥室那麼難以完工? 』天使回答:『你都還未死,我們不能夠完成你的家或房間,因為我們不知道是否有更多的建材會被提供來建造,你了解嗎? 』
這兩個天使護衛著我來到地獄。他們說:『現在你將拜訪地獄,你對地獄的廣闊還沒有任何概念。』我嘖嘖直呼:『太大了!地獄真是太大了!! 』這就是那些被咒詛和在永恆中受責備的靈魂被安置的地方。地獄感覺是地球的1,000倍大。地獄一半是紅色,另一半是漆黑極暗的。我問天使:『為什麼這部份是紅色的? 』
天使回答:『你不知道?它是燒著的硫磺;另一半則是漆黑無光。當人們犯罪而最終下地獄,他們將從這兩邊折磨受苦。地上的眾多教會中有很多滿是人群;然而,他們大部分不是真基督徒,只是參加教會的人──真教會是堅定地相信天堂和地獄──很多掛名基督徒生活在混亂當中,因他們並不堅信天堂和地獄的存在。當一個靈魂進天堂,就有1,000條靈魂入地獄;天堂和地獄靈魂數的比例是 1 比 1,000。』(Matt 7:14)
首先一句:『太熱了! 』且他們熱到感覺快死了; (路 16:24)
第二句話:『太口渴了! 』而且渴到覺得快死了;
第三句話:『給我水! 』你將聽到很多渴求要水喝的聲音。(亞 9:11)
地獄是永恆的。很多人說我們在基督裏是「自由」的;原來他們乃是隨「己心所欲」的過活。我問天使:『那些在這裏的人做過什麼? 』天使答說:『第一群是非信徒。』那些人沒有傳福音給自己家人的必須悔改!天使繼續說:『第二類是已相信耶穌、但沒有為他們的罪悔改的人。』我們必須對主認罪,為我們的罪悔改而不再犯。傴只嘴唇上的認罪不算真正悔改。我們必須帶著真心悔改!
之後,我看到很多的牧師、長老、執事和平信徒們在地獄裏。我問天使:『我知道他們!在地上活著時,忠心的服事上帝;他們也死了一段時間,我們都認為他們是在天堂跟上帝在一起呢!但現在我看到他們全都在地獄裡,而且哭號著太熱了!為什麼他們在這裏? 』

我看到長老、執事、還有其他平信徒被魔鬼折磨。魔鬼們在每一個人的舌頭打洞且用金屬線貫穿,串成一隊然後被魔鬼拖著走。我再次問:『他們在地上又做了什麼? 』天使回答:『他們都犯了四種型態的罪:
 首先, 他們批評牧師,盡說負面事例,在背後攻擊、取笑他們的牧者。』(雅 3:6) (太 12:37)我懇求那些已經犯了這種行為的悔改、再悔改!
 天使繼續說:『第二件罪,他們用話語侮辱教會,攔阻其它基督徒到一個地
 第三件罪,他們竭盡所能地阻止忠心的基督徒作神的工,這些邪惡的人導致很多有信心的人跌倒。
 最後一種罪,一些夫妻酗酒並且虐待他們的家人。』
我看到魔鬼用一片巨大尖銳的指甲穿破男男女女的胃部。我問:『他們做了什麼? 』天使回答:『這些是那些沒結婚卻同居的男女,他們的罪是,當懷孕時就墮胎且毫不悔改。』
我看到另外一群人,魔鬼把他們的嘴唇削成薄片──好像肉片或蔬菜。我問:『為什麼這些人被用這種方式折磨? 』天使說:『這是身為兒子、女兒、女婿和媳婦的,在背後說他們父母的壞話;他們所該說的只是:「我很抱歉!」而不是讓事情變得更糟。他們用辱罵、嚴苛的話語攻擊父母、是悖逆的,這是為何他們的嘴唇被削成薄片。』

人徹底的腐化 & 神的憂傷

當人在世上多起來、又生女兒的時候,神的兒子們看見人的女子美貌,就隨意挑選,娶來為妻。……耶和華見人在地上罪惡很大,終日所思想的盡都是惡。(創六1至2, 5)

創 世記第六章記載了挪亞時代的文化本質,這也正是主再來之前那世代的文化本質。挪亞時代跟今日的世代有很多驚人的相似處!今日的世代,人要完全摒棄西方基督 教傳統帶給他們的「束縛」,摒棄傳統的家庭、婚姻觀念,隨心所欲。今日 西方的很多大學認為,傳統基督教的婚姻家庭制度已不管用,不合時宜,人只要隨自己的意思,無論任何形式、對象的婚姻,只要大家同意便可以進行。今日的世代 是一個任意而行的世代,自主自由、個人權益至上。而自第二次世界大戰後,世界各地所推崇的文化就是這種隨己意而行的文化。神看見在這些文化背後,人類心靈 的真相──人在地上罪惡很大,終日所思想的盡都是惡。今日的文化表面輝煌奪目,但邪惡腐朽深深藏在每一個人的心裡。在神眼中,挪亞時代的文化是徹底的腐 敗,就像今日耶穌基督再回來之前的文化,也是徹底的腐敗!

那時候有偉人在地上,後來,神的兒子們和人的女子們交合生子;那就是上古英武有名的人。耶和華就後悔造人在地上,心中憂傷。(創六4, 6)

這 裡「神的兒子們」是指甚麼人?舊約時代常常稱君王為「神的兒子」,例如大衛、所羅門。其他文化也有類似的描述,就像中國人稱君王為天子。因此「神 的兒子」廣義來說可以指當時的領袖、社會中有能力的人,他們隨意做自己喜歡的事情;自以為很有能力,不用理會所謂「神的意旨」,只知隨心所欲地行事。這些 古代偉人、英武有名的人,刻意建立自己的名聲,後來更建造巴別塔以炫耀自己的偉大。今日的文化也是這樣,如今的科技能做出複製人、幹細胞研究等等,發展迅 速。但問題是,人類追求這一切研究的成果,為的是像巴別塔般炫耀自己,還是能像方舟般,可以幫助人類解決種種困苦?太空事業目的是甚麼?國家與國家之間在 科技發展上的爭逐,是否能給人類帶來真正的幫助,解決人類當前的困境?
