(By: Andrea Dean)

In the early 1990's I had a dream about going to hell. This was 100% real. I went to bed that night and had this awful dream that I had gone to hell. I knew where I was, but I couldn't remember if I had died to end up there or not, it was so real.

See - when I had dreamed this dream, I was actually in an affair with another man, while I was married to my husband, which was wrong, but at that time I wasn't saved.

I remember it was totally dark there; no light at all, at least not at first. I couldn't even see my hand in front of my face. I could hear what sounded like people being tormented. I couldn't see them though. I just remember crying out to God saying "Please God let me go back so I can make it right with You, so I won't end up here." I said this about 9 - 10 times.

Next thing I remember was a light -- a very small light about the size of a flashlight appeared way up over the top of my left shoulder. The light was up very high, and it was shining down on this path in which I was walking on. I could see the path in which I was walking on, and the path was cobble stone. It was very cold on my feet, and in the middle of this path was briars and thorns.

I could see when I looked back down, that I had the same gown on -- the same one I had on when I went to bed that night. I still kept hearing all the horrifying tormenting going on.

Next thing I remember was this lion came running out of this darkness toward me, and I turned around and started running back down the other way. I got up against this high wall that had a large chute door on it. I remember trying to stand up on my tip toes trying to pull myself up into this large tunnel. I was able to pull myself up to get into the tunnel, and the lion with the fur around it's face almost got my feet.

Next, I remember I started spinning round and round, and I remember hearing God's voice saying to me, "You better get your life right with Me, because the pathway in which you are headed is the pathway to destruction."

The next thing I remember ... I was going back into my body and waking up soaking wet with perspiration.

I woke my husband up, and told him what had happen to me. He said, "You just had a bad dream." I said, "No - God was showing and telling me if I didn't get my life right with Him, I would end up there!"

That day, I told my neighbor that I was going to take up her invitation about going with her to church. I did that same Sunday, and then by the next Sunday, I had accepted Jesus into my heart as my savior. Then the next Sunday I was baptized.

I have tried to tell people and witness to people about Jesus, and how he used a dream to wake me up to salvation.

I pray for every living being in this world, and that they will invite Jesus into their heart to be saved from their sins, and that they will get baptized. I wouldn't even want my worst enemy to end up there in hell completely separated from God.

I had someone to interpret that dream to me much later, and this was the revelation. The light in which I saw was Jesus Christ, who I turned and followed. The lion with the fur around his face was the devil seeking whom he desires -- this is how the Bible describes him.

Praise God! I'm saved ("Saved": From having to pay the penalty of eternal spiritual death being forever tormented for my sins, which the Bible says all WILL BE if they don't make Jesus Christ their Savior and Lord). I pray you will get saved too!

These [the unsaved] are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves; they are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. - (Jude 12-13 NKJV)

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW! Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


JESUS DID IT! and...


Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance)
