Catherine Hughes' Second Encounter in Heaven

I would like to share with you the testimony of sister Catherine Hughes, one of our students in England, who is currently in her second year of our three-year Doulos Training School. I previously wrote about Catherine's first encounter in heaven in 1971, when she was seventeen years old, when she committed suicide and was confirmed clinically dead by the doctor for twenty minutes. Her second encounter in heaven, which I am writing about today, occurred later in life during a time of grief that she was experiencing. Here is her testimony:

Testimony of Catherine Hughes
"When my aunty Kathleen died at age 92, I was grieving for her. She had been a born again Christian from the time she was a teenager. While she was alive, I was always spending time with her, doing Bible studies and praying together, and she had told me I was like a daughter to her. 

One night while I was still grieving her death, Jesus took me to heaven again and showed me my aunt. She was a young girl with long, dark hair, dancing with other young people in a garden and singing praise songs. She looked so happy. There were no old people.

Then he showed me some massive, mansion houses made of marble, which had precious stones in them.

Then he showed me Almighty God the Father on his gold throne from a great distance. I didn't realize how massive God is. I could see millions of angels, the twenty-four elders, and the four living creatures around the throne, worshiping God. One of the four living creatures had a man's face, one had an ox's face, one had a lion's face, and one had an eagle's face; they had wings, and they were covered with eyes. There is so much peace and love around them. They are really big and awesome, even a bit intimidating, and you can feel the power of God coming from them. 

The four living creatures were worshiping God all the time, saying, “Hallelujah! Praise God!” And the twenty four elders put their crowns down so many times and bowed down to God. The angels were singing all the time. It was just absolutely awesome.

Around the throne, I saw part of a rainbow with a green glow, and it was really bright. I could feel the light coming from Him. I couldn't see the Father's face, as there was a cloud around Him. I could only see the bottom of his robe and his feet. There was so much light that it was not clear enough to see much more detail. I also saw Jesus seated at His right side.

The angels and twenty-four elders started to dance together. And the Almighty Father God danced with the fingers of His right hand, as He was so big. His hand was about the height of an angel. Jesus told me that every time a soul gets saved, the company of heaven dances with great joy. 

Then the Lord showed me an enormous library, and He said, “Everybody has got a book of life in this library.” 

He also showed me a massive warehouse with human body parts. And our Lord said He was sad, as angels would take body parts to replace organs or limbs of people praying for healing; but not enough people had enough faith to believe to receive their body parts and complete healing. 

I saw clear rivers with what looked like sparkling diamonds at the bottom of them, as well as gold glass pavements, beautiful flowers, and gardens.

Then Jesus brought me back to my bedroom."  


One of the reasons the Lord gave this experience was so that you would know heaven is real. You belong there, but you need to prepare yourself to go there. This place is not just for Catherine and her aunt, but for all who will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He wants you to go there, too. He does not want you to perish but have everlasting life.

The way you prepare yourself for heaven is first to repent of all your sins, stop doing the things of the world, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ that He died for your sins to pay the price and set you free; and believe that God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Surrender your whole life to Him. Ask Him to come and live inside your heart and be your Lord and Savior. Make a commitment to follow and serve Him all the days of your life. Ask Him to baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Then turn from iniquity and live a righteous, holy life for Him. Soon He will come back for all His saints and take us up to be with Him forever in heaven. 

I hope this has helped to remind you of the reality of heaven and our need to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior if we want to make it to that glorious place.

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?"
