Forty Days in Heaven and Hell

This is the testimony of an Indonesian lady, called Elisabeth Widyawati Herman, which has been translated from Indonesian into English by a woman named Elma Larsen, so that many more could be blessed by her testimony. 

In 2001, when Elisabeth was twenty years old, the Lord Jesus Christ personally took her to see heaven & hell during a period of forty days and forty nights. 

Elisabeth initially had an experience at an intercessory prayer meeting at church, whereby the Holy Spirit came upon her, and she began speaking in tongues. Afterward she realized that she could no longer speak in her native Indonesian language, but only in tongues, which continued for the entire forty days. She also discovered that she was unable to eat food, so she fasted for the entire duration of this experience. Meanwhile the Lord continued to show her hell and heaven, and the revelation she received was truly amazing.

Some of the highlights of it include the following:

  • She saw the map of hell and the shape of it, which amazingly corresponds to the shape of a crucified man. 
  • People enter into hell through the section that corresponds to the mouth. As it says in the prophet Isaiah: "Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure; their glory and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it." (Is 5:14, KJV).
  • The people in hell are being punished in different locations there, depending on whether they were a believer or non believer, and what kind of sinful lifestyle they practiced during their earthly life.
  • She actually saw that there were preachers of the gospel there in hell, because they didn't practice what they preached.
  • The Lord holds each one of us responsible for controlling the use of our bodies and all their parts.
  • In heaven she met King David, and you will be amazed at his comment as to why he made it into heaven. 
  • She also met the apostle John in heaven, who gave her advice for all of us on our relationship with the Lord, which is right in line with the kind of relationship he had with the Lord during his earthly life, as told to us in the Bible (Jn 13:23; Rev 1:10).
  • She met Paul the apostle, who gave her a word of encouragement to remember in our trials and hardships, which I believe you will appreciate. It was essentially what he wrote to the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 10:13.
  • She saw the Lord's palace and described what it was like seeing the Father on His throne.
  • She saw the twelve, colorful foundations decorated with precious stones, which are spoken about in Revelation 21:19-20.
  • She described the angels and some of the differences between the worship angels and the warrior ones.
  • She saw a warehouse in heaven containing spare body parts with people's names on them that were simply there for the asking, if the people who needed them would only ask and believe. But most never bother to ask.
  • She says that there are separate rewards given to the saints for each thing that they do for the Lord, no matter what it is.
  • She said that what matters in the end is not how much you serve the Lord, but the quality of your service, which is evidenced by the heart and attitude with which you do it. Whatever we do, we should do it as unto the Lord, for the glory of God, in the name of Jesus, and with love. Then even if all you can do is pray, you will be rewarded for praying. If all you can do is care for the children or do housekeeping chores, you will receive a reward for it, if is done in loving service to the Lord.
I have tried not to give you too much detail about her revelation, because you really need to just watch it and listen to her give the testimony herself. You are in for a real treat!

Translator Elma Larsen posted the following statement in the description box of the video containing her English voiceover of the testimony, which is worth reposting here:

"To avoid confusion among Christians, below is an extract taken from Elisabeth's 40-day dairy. This is what the LORD JESUS said to her on day 39:"

"All who enter the Kingdom of Heaven enter only by the grace I give. When people believe in ME, that person has the right to enter into MY Kingdom. But I judge not from the first moment they made the decision in their life to repent and believe in ME. I judge the end of their life whether they still believe in ME and loves ME. Therefore, it is necessary to be guided by the HOLY SPIRIT in living their life – so that they are able to do MY every will. There are many children of the LORD who, in the middle of their lives, cease to trust ME, leaving ME, exchanging the salvation they received only for the sake of wealth, honour, pleasure which are all temporary in the world." 

"It is your duty and the duty of MY children, MY servants who believe in ME to bring MY children who have long forsaken ME to return to ME, and also bringing those who do not believe in ME to repent and believe in ME before MY second coming."

Another helpful resource for you is Elisabeth's DIARY covering Day 1 - 40 (a must read!), translated into English (see here for PDF download)

What a treasure this video and diary are. I hope you will take the time to view the video and read the diary. Then take it to heart, repent wherever necessary, and live your life according to the Word of God. If you do not know the Lord, then you will perish unless you repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Please see the final section at the end of this blog for guidance on giving your life to the Lord and coming to know Him.

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?"
