TESTIMONY OF MARY K. BAXTER PART1
Dear friends, we have found it essential to put at your disposal this testimony of Mary K. Baxter, which is a well detailed story of Hell. Kathryn had the privilege of being led by the Lord Jesus Christ to Hell, on numerous occasions, to witness and testify that Hell is well and truly real. This text that we present you is in ten parts. The first 9 are an extract from her book entitled “A Divine Revelation of Hell”, and the 10th part is a Call to Repentance. It’s a very edifying testimony, and we pray that it reaches its goal, that of helping you escape the terrible eternal punishment. Please, read all the parts, and let your heart be sensitive to this final warning!
I recognize that without the supernatural power of the Lord Jesus Christ, this book nor any other one which proposes to deal with the afterlife, could not be written. Jesus alone holds the keys to Hell and has paid the price for our entrance to Heaven. I found that writing this book was a long, lonely, demanding experience. In fact, the book has waited several years to be revealed. The revelations from the Lord came to me in 1976. It took eight months to put it on paper. The writing of the manuscript itself covered a period of several years and putting the Scripture references in step-by-step order took another year. Finalizing the book took the best part of the winter of 1982 and the year 1983. In addition, for a period of thirty nights, Jesus took me into Hell, followed by ten nights of visits to Heaven.
I see now that the Lord was preparing me to write this book when even as a child I had dream about God. After I was born again, I had a very strong love for the lost and wanted to see souls saved. Later the Lord appeared to me in 1976 and told me that I was chosen for a special assignment, He said, “My child, I will manifest Myself to you to bring people out of darkness into light. For the Lord God has chosen you for a purpose; to write and make a record of the things I will show and tell you. I am going to reveal unto you the reality of Hell, that many may be saved, many will repent of their evil ways before it is too late. Your soul will be taken out of your body, by Me, the Lord Jesus Christ, and transmitted into Hell and other places that I want you to see. I will also show you visions of Heaven and other places and give you many revelations.”
Chapter 1: Into Hell
In March 1976 while I was praying at home, I had a visit from the Lord Jesus Christ. I had been praying in the spirit for days when all at once I felt the very presence of God. His power and His glory filled the house. A brilliant light illuminated the room where I was praying, and a sweet and wonderful feeling came over me. Lights flowed in billows, rolling and folding into one another and rolling over and out of each other. It was a spectacular sight! And then the voice of the Lord began to speak to me. He said, “I am Jesus Christ, your Lord, and I wish to give you a revelation to prepare the saints for My return and to turn many to righteousness. The powers of darkness are real and My judgments are true. My child, I will take you into Hell by My Spirit, and I will show you many things which I want the world to know. I will appear to you many times; I will take your spirit out of your body and will actually take you into Hell.” “I want you to write a book and tell of the visions and of all the things I reveal to you. You and I will walk through Hell together. Make a record of these things which were and are and are to come. My words are true, faithful and trustworthy. I Am That I Am, and there is none beside Me.”
“Dear Lord”, I cried out, “What do You want me to do?” My whole being wanted to cry out to Jesus, to acknowledge His presence. The best I can describe it is to say love came over me. It was the most beautiful, peaceful, joyful, powerful love I have ever felt. God’s praises began to flow from me. All at once I wanted to give Him my whole life to be used by Him, to help save people from their sin. I knew, by His Spirit, that it actually was Jesus the Son of God who was there in the room with me. I cannot find words to express His divine presence. But I know that it was the Lord.
“Behold, My child”, Jesus said, “I am going to take you by My Spirit into Hell so that you may be able to make a record of the reality of it, to tell the whole earth that Hell is real, and to bring the lost out of darkness and into the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Instantly, my soul was taken out of my body. I went with Jesus up out of my room and into the sky. I knew all that was going on about me. I saw my husband and children asleep in our home below. It was as though I had died and my body was left behind on the bed while my spirit was going with Jesus up through the top of the house. It seemed as though the whole roof was rolled back, and I could see my family asleep in their beds. I felt the touch of Jesus as He said, “Fear not. They will be safe.” He knew my thoughts.
I will try to the best of my ability to tell you step-by-step what I saw and felt. Some of the things I did not understand. The Lord Jesus told me the meaning of most of them, but some things He did not tell me. I knew then, and I know now, that these things were really happening and only God could have shown them to me. Praise His holy name. People, believe me, Hell is real. I was taken there by the Spirit many times during the preparation of this report.
Soon we were high into the heavens. I turned and looked at Jesus. He was full of glory and power, and such peace flowed from Him. He took my hand and said, “I love you. Fear not, for I am with you.” At that, we began to go even higher into the sky, and now I could see the earth below. Protruding out of the earth and scattered about in many places were funnels spinning around to a center point and then turning back again. These moved high above the earth and looked like a giant, dirty type of slinky that moved continuously. They were coming up from all over the earth. “What are these?” I asked the Lord Jesus as we came near to one. “These are the gateways to Hell”, He said. “We will go into Hell through one of them.” Immediately, we entered one of the funnels. Inside, it looked like a tunnel, spinning around and around and back again like a top.
A deep darkness descended on us, and with the darkness came a smell so horrible it took my breath away. Along the sides of this tunnel were living forms embedded in the walls. Dark gray in color, the forms moved and cried out to us as we passed. I knew without being told that they were evil. The forms could move but were still attached to the walls. A horrible smell came from them, and they screeched at us with the most awful cries. I felt an invisible, evil force moving inside the tunnels. At times in the darkness, I could make out the forms. A dirty fog covered most of them. “Lord, what are these?” I asked as I held on tightly to Jesus’ hand. He said, “These are evil spirits ready to be spewed out on the earth when satan gives the orders.”
As we were going down inside the tunnel, the evil forms laughed and called out to us. They tried to touch us, but could not because of the power of Jesus. The very air was polluted and dirty, and only the presence of Jesus kept me from screaming at the sheer horror. Oh, yes, I had all my senses-I could hear, smell, see, feel and even taste the evil in this place. If anything, my senses had become more sensitive, and the odor and filth almost made me sick. Screams filled the air as we came near the base of the tunnel. Piercing cries came up the dark tunnel to meet us. Sounds of all sorts filled the air. I could feel fear, death and sin all around me.
The worst odor I have ever smelled filled the air. It was the smell of decaying flesh, and it seemed to be coming from every direction. Never on earth had I felt such evil or heard such cries of despair. Soon I would find that these were the cries of the dead and that Hell was filled with their wails. I felt a gust of evil wind and a small suction force ahead of us. Lights like lightening or strobe flashes penetrated the black darkness and threw gray shadows on the walls. I could barely make out the form of something in front of me. I recoiled in shock when I realized that it was a large snake moving along ahead of us. As I continued to look, I saw that those ugly snakes were slithering about everywhere.
Jesus said to me, “We will soon enter the left leg of Hell. Ahead you will see great sorrow, pathetic sadness and indescribable horror. Stay close to Me, and I will give you strength and protection as we go through Hell. The things you are about to see are a warning,” He said. “The book you write will save many souls from Hell. What you are seeing is real. Fear not, for I will be with you.” At long last, the Lord Jesus and I were at the bottom of the tunnel. We stepped out into Hell. I will try to the best of my ability to tell you what I saw, and I will tell it in the order God gave it to me.
Ahead of us, as far as I could see, were flying objects darting here and there. Groaning sounds and pitiful cries filled the air. Up ahead I saw a dim light, and we began walking toward it. The path was a dry, powdery dirt. We were soon at the entrance to a small dark tunnel. Some things I cannot put on paper; they were too awful to describe. The fear in Hell could be tasted, and I knew if I had not been with Jesus I would not make it back. In the writing of this, some of the things I saw I do not understand, but the Lord knows all things, and He helped me understand most of what I saw. Let me warn you-don’t go to that place. It is a horrid place of torments, excruciating pain and eternal sorrow. Your soul will always be alive. The soul lives forever. It is the real you, and your soul will go to either Heaven or Hell. To those of you who think that Hell is here on earth -well, you are right- it is! Hell is in the center of the earth, and there are souls in torment there night and day. There are no parties in Hell. No love. No compassion. No rest, only a place of sorrow beyond your belief.
Chapter 2: The Left Leg of Hell
A horrible odor filled the air. Jesus said to me, “In the left leg of Hell are many pits. This tunnel branches off into other parts of Hell, but we will spend some time in the left leg first. These things you are about to see will always be with you. The world must know about the reality of Hell. Many sinners and even some of My people do not believe that Hell is real. You have been chosen by Me to reveal these truths to them. Everything I will show you about Hell and all the other things I will show you are true.” Jesus had shown Himself to me in the form of a bright light, brighter than the sun. The form of a man was in the center of that light. Sometimes I saw Jesus as a man, but at other times He was in the form of a spirit. He spoke again, “Child, when I speak, the Father has spoken. The Father and I are one. Remember to love above all else and to forgive one another. Come now, follow Me.”
As we walked, evil spirits fled from the presence of the Lord. “O God, O God”, I cried. “What is next?” As I said previously, I had all my senses in Hell. All those in Hell have all their senses. Mine were working now in full force. Fear was on every side, and inexpressible dangers lurked everywhere. Each step I took was more horrible than the one before. There were doorways about the size of small windows, opening and shutting very fast at the top of the tunnel. Screams filled the air as many evil creatures flew by us, up and out of the gateways of Hell. Soon we were at the end of the tunnel. I was trembling with fright because of the danger and fear around us. I was so thankful for the protection of Jesus. I thank God for His almighty power to protect us, even in the pits of Hell. Even with that protecting shield, I kept thinking, “Not my will, Father, but Yours be done.” I looked at my body. For the first time I noticed that I was in a spirit form, and my form was in the shape of myself. I wondered what was next.
Jesus and I stepped from the tunnel onto a path with wide swaths of land on each side of it. There were pits of fire everywhere as far as the eye could see. The pits were four feet across and three feet deep and shaped like a bowl. Jesus said, “There are many pits like this in the left leg of Hell. Come, I will show you some of them. I stood beside Jesus on the path and looked into one of the pits. Brimstone was embedded in the side of the pit and glowed red like hot coals of fire. In the center of the pit was a lost soul who had died and gone to Hell. Fire began at the bottom of the pit, swept upward and clothed the lost soul in flames. In a moment the fire would die down to embers, then with a rushing sound would sweep back over the tormented soul in the pit.
I looked and saw that the lost soul in the pit was caged inside a skeleton form. “My Lord”, I cried at the sight, “Can’t You let them out?” How awful was the sight! I thought, “This could be me.” I said, “Lord, how sad it is to see and know that a living soul is in there.” I heard a cry from the center of the first pit. I saw a soul in the form of a skeleton, crying, “Jesus, have mercy!” “O, Lord!” I said. It was the voice of a woman. I looked at her and wanted to pull her out of the fire. The sight of her broke my heart. The skeleton form of a woman with a dirty-grey mist inside was talking to Jesus. In shock, I listened to her. Decayed flesh hung by shreds from her bones, and, as it burned, it fell off into the bottom of the pit. Where her eyes had once been were now only empty sockets. She had no hair. The fire started at her feet in small flames and grew as it climbed up and over her body. The woman seemed to be constantly burning, even when the flames were only embers. From deep down inside her came cries and groans of despair, “Lord, Lord, I want to come out of here!”
She kept reaching out to Jesus. I looked at Jesus, and there was great sorrow on His face. Jesus said to me, “My child, you are here with Me to let the world know that sin results in death, that Hell is real. I looked at the woman again, and worms were crawling out of the bones of her skeleton. They were not harmed by the fire. Jesus said, “She knows and feels those worms inside.” “God, have mercy!” I cried as the fire reached its peak and the horrible burning started all over again. Great cries and deep sobs shook the form of this woman-soul. She was lost. There was no way out. “Jesus, why is she here?” I said in a small voice, for I was very scared. Jesus said, “Come.”
The path we were on was a circuitous one, twisting in and out between these pits of fire as far as I could see. The cries of the living dead, mixed with moans and hideous screams, came to my ears from all directions. There were no quiet times in Hell. The smell of dead and decaying flesh hung thickly in the air. We came to the next pit. Inside this pit, which was the same size as the other one, was another skeleton form. A man’s voice cried from the pit, saying, “Lord, have mercy on me!” Only when they spoke could I tell whether the soul was a man or woman. Great wailing sobs came from this man. “I’m so sorry, Jesus. Forgive me. Take me out of here. I have been in this place of torment for years. I beg You, let me out!” Great sobs shook his skeletal frame as he begged, “Please, Jesus, let me out!” I looked at Jesus and saw that He too was crying. “Lord Jesus”, the man cried out from the burning pit, “Haven’t I suffered enough for my sins? It has been forty years since my death.” Jesus said, “It is written, the just shall live by faith! All mockers and unbelievers shall have their part in the lake of fire. You would not believe the Truth. Many times My people were sent to you to show you the way, but you would not listen to them. You laughed at them and refused the Gospel. Even though I died on a cross for you, you mocked Me and would not repent of your sins. My Father gave you many opportunities to be saved. If only you had listened!” Jesus wept. “I know, Lord, I know!” The man cried. “But I repent now.” “It is too late,” said Jesus. “Judgment is set.”
The man continued, “Lord, some of my people are coming here, for they also will not repent. Please, Lord, let me go tell them that they must repent of their sins while they are still on earth. I do not want them to come here.” Jesus said, “They have preachers, teachers, elders, all ministering the Gospel. They will tell them. They also have the advantages of the modern communications systems and many other ways to learn of Me. I sent workers to them that they might believe and be saved. If they will not believe when they hear the Gospel, neither will they be persuaded though one rises from the dead.” At this, the man became very angry and began to curse. Evil, blasphemous words came from him. I looked on in horror as the flames rose up and his dead, decaying flesh began to burn and fall off. Inside this dead shell of a man, I saw his soul. It looked like a dirty-gray mist, and it filled the inside of his skeleton. I turned to Jesus and cried, “Lord, how horrible!” Jesus said, “Hell is real; the judgment is real. This is only the beginning of the frightful things I have to show you. There is much more to come. Tell the world for Me that Hell is real, that men and women must repent of their sins. Come, follow Me. We must go on.”
In the next pit was a very small-framed woman who looked to be about eighty years old. I can’t say how I knew her age, but I did. The skin was removed from her bones by the continual flame, and only the bones remained with a dirty-mist soul inside. I watched as the fire burned her. Soon there were only the bones and the worms crawling inside, which the fire could not burn. “Lord, how terrible!” I cried. “I don’t know if I can go on, for this is awful beyond belief.” As far as my eyes could see, souls were burning in pits of fire. “My child, this is why you are here,” Jesus answered. “You must know and tell the truth about Hell. Heaven is real! Hell is real! Come, we must go on.” I looked back at the woman. Her cries were so sad. As I watched her, she put her bony hands together, as if in prayer. I couldn’t help crying. I was in a spirit form, and I was crying. I knew that people in Hell felt all these things, too (NEXT PART 2)
