|Seven Colombian disciples who saw hell|
The full length testimony is available below, and I highly recommend listening to it in its entirety!
I know that some people reading this will not believe, because it doesn't fit into their box. Some will be skeptical and tempted to speak against these servants of God. But please be careful not to do this! Please prayerfully listen to the testimony of these seven Columbians, and use the Testimony Review Process adopted by this blog, as you decide for yourself whether the Lord has spoken to them. For issues and concerns, each person must confirm with the Lord, whether something is valid or not.
The apostle Paul said, "But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one." (1Co 2:14-15)
The original testimony was in Spanish, and transcribed into English. You can get contact names and numbers, along with their photos, from their website. I do not believe it's a myth. Seven people testified to it.
Some People Who Once Knew Jesus Are in Hell
According to seven youths, the worst section of hell, where the torments are worse than any human could express with words, is reserved for those who knew the Lord during their lifetime. One youth testified, "These are people who knew Jesus and the Word of God – pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and all types of people that had once accepted Jesus and knew the Truth, but lived a double life. Their lives were not clean before the holy presence of the Lord. There were also backsliders, and their suffering was a thousand times worse than anyone else. Those souls were there because they preached and fasted. They sang and lifted their hands in the church. But in the streets and the homes, they were in adultery, fornication, lying, and robbery."
The Lord told the youths, “You cannot play with God or with the flames of hell either.” He also told them, “My sons, all the suffering on the earth concentrated in just one place is nothing – nothing -- compared with the suffering that a person has in the best parts of hell.” If this is true of those who suffer the least in hell, how much more must it be for those in the center of hell, who once knew the Lord and walked away from him.
Imagine - John Lennon in Hell
When Jesus took seven youths for a tour of hell, they saw many people there. One of the people they saw in hell was John Lennon, a member of the satanic Beatles group. During his life he had mocked and ridiculed the Lord. But in hell, after his life on earth had ended, he was upside down in a cauldron of fire with flames reaching nine to twelve feet high. The flesh was falling off his face in pieces.
On December 5, 1980, fifteen years earlier, he had been shot five times by a crazy fan as he and his wife, Yoko, were returning to their apartment building in New York City. John staggered into the building saying; "I'm shot!" Yoko called for help. Two police vehicles arrived in minutes, and one rushed John to Roosevelt Hospital. Lennon died in transit, and evidently went straight to hell.

In my opinion, Lennon sold his soul to satan, who took his life at age 40. His fans sang this song upon his death. They sang, “Imagine there’s no heaven…no hell below us…imagine…nothing to…die for, and no religion, too.” In his song, Give Peace a Chance, he promoted wicked, sinful behavior and the world’s false religions, as well as the United Nations. They have a website dedicated to him and an Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland made of white stone with fifteen beams of light. They even have an Imagine Mosaic dedicated to him in New York City's Central park. There you can almost always find someone strumming on a guitar to the tune of one of his songs. He is remembered as an advocate for a more peaceful world – a world without Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, without whom there can be no peace.
Now Lennon has no peace. According to the testimony of the seven Colombian youths, he has nothing but torment in the fires of hell, apart from Christ forever and ever. When he saw Jesus with those seven Columbian youths, he remained watching the Lord intently from inside the flames. He called Him, “Lord,” as he begged Jesus to get him out of that place. He shouted, “Lord, have mercy! Lord, give me a chance! Lord, take me out of this place! But the Lord Jesus didn’t even want to look at him. He simply turned his back on Lennon, just as he had turned so many people away from Christ during his lifetime. When Jesus did this, the man started to curse and blaspheme the Lord.
Interestingly Lennon had a phobia of cremation, and dreaded the thought of being cremated when he died. According to controversial biographer Albert Goldman, "Lennon had a horror of cremation, a practice that he inveighed against and once proposed to protest in a song. Despite his aversion, his widow arranged to have his body burned." According to the account of Lennon’s assistant, Fred Seaman, in his book "The last days of John Lennon", Lennon’s security man, Douglas MacDougal told him that John's face had been serene and calm until just before the body entered the oven, when suddenly it contorted into a "pained, macabre grin." This may have been due to rigor mortis or a demonic manifestation within his corpse. Whether or not this is true, we don’t know. But we do know, according to what the youths saw, that he is now in painful torment in eternal flames.
His wife Yoko would like to imagine that Lennon has peace though, and she continues to proclaim that message to the world. On December 8, 2011, the 31st anniversary of his death, the Washington Post reported that she told the Vancouver Sun, “Now that John's a spirit, he has a different effect on people than when he was alive,” she told the Sun. “Spirits talk on a pure level and don't get distracted by people saying things like, 'That's nice, but why's he wearing that?'” One thing is for sure, his soul is talking, but he’s not talking on a pure level. He is crying out in pain and is still blaspheming Christ.
Putting it All Together
My friend, hell is real. Jesus warned us about this in Scripture. And the Lord gave these Colombians this experience, in order to warn those of us who are still alive on the earth. He did this because many people are dying and going to hell every minute.
Please don't think you can play games with God. You may be able to play with fire on earth, but you cannot play with the fires of hell. As long as you are still alive on earth, you have a chance to avoid going there. Don't delay doing so for another day.
If you have known the Lord, but have gone astray and fallen into sin, then repent and return to the Lord before it's too late! This is an opportunity to let the Holy Spirit search your heart and reveal any areas that are not right with God. Let Him reveal any sin that may be in your life. Who has first place in your life today? Is it Jesus? Or is it someone or something else? Don't lie to yourself and think you can live a double life. You can't live one way in church and then another way outside of church. Even sin such as gossip, greed, and vanity are serious sins to God. Don't be presumptuous. Don't classify your sins, thinking they are relatively minor compared to others.
Backsliding Christians can repent and return to the Lord. But if they don't, then when they die they will suffer eternal torment for the sins they are committing. There is no such thing as "eternal security!" I've written about that in another post called "Drifting Away." The Lord repeatedly told the youths, “Without holiness, no man will see Me. Without holiness, no man will see Me.” I've recently written about this topic in another post called "Holy Living in a Perverted World." Yet many believers today don't understand the need for holiness. They are living in sin, thinking they will go to heaven when they die.
Everyone arrives in hell for their own acts, so they cannot blame God. Paul the apostle wrote to the Galatians, "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life." (Gal 6:7-8). We will each reap what we've sown. Some will reap eternal life, because they spend their lives sowing to please the Spirit. You know who they are, because the fruit of the Spirit is evident in their lives - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Others who sow to their own flesh will reap corruption.
You have an opportunity today to turn from sin and cry out to Jesus for mercy. I urge you to do that right now while there is still time -- before it's too late. God will forgive you, if you repent.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
