TESTIMONY OF MARY K. BAXTER PART 4
This testimony is the 4th part in a series of ten. Please read the other 9 parts.
God wants you to know about Hell, and He wants to save you from that place. God wants you to know you have a way out. That way is Jesus Christ, the Saviour of your soul. Remember, only those with their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved. We came to the first activity in the belly of Hell. It was to the right of where we had entered and up on a small hill in a dark corner of Hell. I remembered the words of the Lord when He said to me, “It will seem sometimes like I have left you, but I will not. Remember that I have all power in Heaven and in earth. At times the evil spirits and lost souls will not see us or know we are here. Fear not. What you are about to see is real. These things are happening right now and will continue to happen until death and Hell are cast into the lake of fire.” Reader, make sure your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Ahead of us I could hear voices and the cries of a soul in torment. We walked up the small hill and looked over. A light filled the area, so I could see clearly. Cries like you have never thought possible were filling the air. They were the cries of a man. “Listen to Me”, said Jesus. “What you are about to see and hear is true. Take heed you ministers of the Gospel, for these are faithful and true sayings. Awake, evangelists, preachers, and teachers of My Word, all of you who are called to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are sinning, repent or you will likewise perish.”
We walked up to within fifteen feet of this activity. I saw small dark-clothed figures marching around a boxlike object. Upon closer examination, I saw that the box was a coffin and the figures marching around it were demons. It was a real coffin, and there were twelve demons marching around it. As they marched, they were chanting and laughing. Each one had a sharp spear in his hand, which he kept thrusting into the coffin through small openings that lined the outside. There was a feeling of great fear in the air, and I trembled at the sight before me. Jesus knew my thoughts, for He said, “Child, there are many souls in torment here, and there are many different types of torment for these souls. There is greater punishment for those who once preached the Gospel and went back into sin, or for those who would not obey the call of God for their lives.”
I heard a cry so desperate that it filled my heart with despair. “No hope, no hope!” he called. The hopeless cry came from the coffin. It was an endless wail of regret. “God, how awful!” I said. “Come”, said Jesus, “Let’s go closer.” With that, He walked up to the coffin and looked inside. I followed and also looked in. It appeared that the evil spirits could not see us. A dirty-gray mist filled the inside of the coffin. It was the soul of a man. As I watched, the demons pushed their spears into the soul of the man in the coffin. I will never forget the suffering of this soul. I cried to Jesus, “Let him out, Lord; let him out.” The torment of his soul was such a terrible sight. If only he could get free. I pulled at Jesus’ hand and begged Him to let the man out of the coffin.
Jesus said, “My child, peace, be still.” As Jesus spoke, the man saw us. He said, “Lord, Lord, let me out. Have mercy.” I looked down and saw a bloody mess. Before my eyes was a soul. Inside the soul was a human heart, and blood spurted from it. The thrusting of the spears were literally piercing his heart. “I will serve You now, Lord.” He begged, “Please let me out.” I knew that this man felt every spear that pierced his heart. “Day and night, he is tormented,” the Lord said. “He was put here by satan, and it is satan who torments him.” The man cried, “Lord, I will now preach the true Gospel. I will tell about sin and Hell. But please help me out of here.”
Jesus said, “This man was a preacher of the Word of God. There was a time when he served Me with all his heart and led many people to salvation. Some of his converts are still serving Me today, many years later. The lust of the flesh and the deceitfulness of riches led him astray. He let satan gain the rule over him. He had a big church, a fine car, a large income. He began to steal from the church offerings. He began to teach lies. He spoke mostly half-lies and half-truths. He would not let Me correct him. I sent My messengers to him to tell him to repent and preach the truth, but he loved the pleasures of this life more than the life of God. He knew not to teach or preach any other doctrine except the truth as revealed in the Bible. But before he died, he said the Holy Ghost baptism was a lie and that those who claimed to have the Holy Ghost were hypocrites. He said you could be a drunkard and get to Heaven, even without repentance.”
“He said God would not send anyone to Hell -that God was too good to do that. He caused many good people to fall from the grace of the Lord. He even said that he did not need Me, for he was like a god. He went so far as to hold seminars to teach this false doctrine. He trampled My Holy Word under his feet. Yet, I continued to love him. “My child, it is better to have never known Me than to know Me and turn back from serving Me,” said the Lord. “If only he had listened to You, Lord!” I cried. “If only he had cared about his soul and the souls of others.” “He did not listen to Me. When I called he would not hear Me. He loved the easy life. I called and called him to repentance, but he would not come back to Me. One day he was killed and came immediately here. Now satan torments him for having once preached My Word and saved souls for My kingdom. This is his torment.”
I watched the demons as they continued to march around and around the coffin. The man’s heart beat and real blood ran from it. I will never forget his cries of pain and sorrow. Jesus looked at the man in the coffin with great compassion and said, “The blood of many lost souls is upon this man’s hands. Many of them are in torment here right now.” With sorrowful hearts, Jesus and I walked on. As we left, I saw another group of demons coming up to the coffin. They were about three feet high, dressed in black clothes, with black hoods over their faces. They were taking shifts tormenting this soul. I thought of how pride in all of us at times makes us unwilling to admit mistakes and ask for forgiveness. We refuse to repent and humble ourselves, and we go on as if we alone were ever right. But listen, soul, Hell is real. Please do not go to that place.
Then Jesus showed me a giant clock, stretched out across the whole world. And I heard it ticking. The hour hand was nearing the twelve o’clock position, and the minute hand raced around until it stopped at three minutes before twelve. Stealthily the minute hand moved toward the Hour. As it moved, the ticking became louder and louder until it seemed to fill the whole earth. God spoke like a trumpet, and His voice sounded like many waters. “Listen and hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches,” He said. “Be ready, for at a time you think not, I will come again. I hear the clock striking. It is twelve o’clock. The Bridegroom has come for His Bride.”
Are you ready for Christ’s coming, my friend? Or will you be like those who say, “Not today, Lord?” Will you call upon Him and be saved? Will you give your heart to Him today? Remember, Jesus can and will save you from all evil if you call on Him today, and repent. Pray for your family and your loved ones that they will come to Christ before it is too late. Listen as Jesus says, “I will protect you from evil. I will keep you in all your ways. I will save you. I will save your loved ones. Call upon Me today and live.” With many tears, I pray that all of you who read this book will realize the truth before it is too late. Hell is for eternity. I am trying to the best of my ability to reveal all I saw and heard. I know these things are true. As you read the remainder of this book, I pray that you will repent and take Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. I heard the Lord say, “It is time to go. We shall return again tomorrow.”
Chapter 7: The Belly of Hell
The next night Jesus and I went into Hell again. We entered first into a large open area. As far as I could see, evil activities were going on. A great number of these activities were centred around us. Only ten feet or so away from where we were standing, I noticed a peculiar activity-peculiar mainly because many evil forms and demon spirits hurried in and out of that particular area. The scene was like something from a horror movie. As far as I could see, there were souls in torment, and the devil and his angels were going about their work. The semi-darkness was pierced with screams of agony and despair.
Jesus said, “Child, satan is both the deceiver on earth and the tormentor of souls in Hell. Many of the demonic powers seen here also go up on the earth at times to hurt, afflict and deceive. I am going to show you things that have never before been seen in this much detail. Some of the things you see will be happening now, while others are yet to happen in the future.” Again I looked ahead. The ground was a light brown in colour, without life, without grass or anything green. Everything was dead or dying. Some places were cold and damp, while others were hot and dry. And always there was the putrid odour of burning and decaying flesh mingled with the smells of offal, stale garbage and mould.
“Satan uses many traps and snares to deceive God’s people,” Jesus said. “During our trips to Hell, I will show you many of the cunning and insidious tricks of the devil.” We had walked only a few yards when I saw a dark, black object looming ominously ahead of us. It seemed to move up and down, to contract and to swell. And each time it moved it gave off an awful stench-an odour even greater than the usual, malodorous smells which filled the air of Hell. I will try to explain what I saw as best I can. As the large, hanging, black object continued to contract and expand and to breathe out offensive odours, I noticed something like horns, dark in colour, coming out of it and going up into the earth. I realized that it was a large, black heart and that there were many entrances into it. A dreadful foreboding came over me. Jesus knew my thoughts and said, “Fear not. This is the heart of Hell. Later, we will go through it, but now we must go into the cell block of Hell.”
The cell block of Hell was in a circle in the belly of Hell. The cells are seventeen miles high. I looked up, and I saw there was a large brown ditch between the cells and the bottom or belly of Hell. It looked to me like the ditch was about six feet deep, and I wondered how I was going to get across it. I had no sooner thought that we were up on a ledge, at the first tier of cells. The ledge acted as a walkway around the cells and also as a vantage place from which one could look out over the centre of Hell. Jesus said, “These things are faithful and true. Death and Hell will one day be cast into the lake of fire. Until then, this is Hell’s holding place. These cells will continue to be here, packed with sinful souls, tormented and suffering. I gave My life so you would not have to come here. I knew these horrors were real, but My Father’s mercy is just as real. If you will let Him, He will forgive you. Call to Him in My name today.”
Chapter 8: The Cells in Hell
Jesus and I stood on a ledge at the first tier of cells. The ledge was about four feet wide. I looked up, and as far as I could see, there were other ledges in a large circle around what looked like a giant pit. Beside the ledge, or walkway, were cells which had been dug into the earth. Like jail cells, these cells were all in a row, with only two feet of dirt separating them. Jesus said, “This cell block is seventeen miles high, starting from the bottom of Hell. Here in these cells are many souls that were in witchcraft or the occult. Some were sorcerers, mediums, drug peddlers, idol worshipers or evil people with familiar spirits. These are the souls that worked the greatest abominations against God-many of them have been here for hundreds of years. These are they who would not repent, especially those who deceived people and led them away from God. These souls have done great wickedness against the Lord and His people. Evil and sin was their love and passion.”
As I followed the Lord around the walkway, I looked down to the centre of Hell, where the greatest amount of activity was. A dim light filled the centre at all times and I could make out the movement of many forms. As far as I could see ahead of us were cells. I thought to myself that the torment in the cells surely could not be more horrible than that in the pits. All around us I heard the cries and the moans and the screams of the damned in the cells. I began to be very sick. Great sorrow filled my heart. Jesus said, “I did not let you hear those cries until now, child. But now I want to show you how satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. Here in Hell there are different torments for different souls. Satan administers this torment until the Day of Judgment, till death and Hell are cast into the lake of fire. Also, a lake of fire comes through Hell at times.”
As we walked along the ledge, the sounds grew louder. Great cries came from inside the cells. As I walked close to Jesus, He stopped in front of the third cell. A bright light illumined the inside of the cell. In the cell was an old woman sitting in a rocking chair, rocking and crying as though her heart would break. I don’t know why, but I was shocked to find that this woman was a real person with a body. The cell was completely bare except for the woman in the rocking chair. The walls of the cell were constructed of light clay and dirt, molded into the earth. The front door spanned the entire front of the cell. It was made of black metal with bars of metal and a lock on it. Since the bars were set wide apart, Jesus and I had an almost unlimited view of the entire cell.
The old woman’s colour was ashen-flesh mixed with a greyish tint. She was rocking back and forth. As she rocked, tears rolled down her cheeks. I knew from her agonized expression that she was in great pain and was suffering from some unseen torment. I wondered what she had been charged with that she should be imprisoned here. All of a sudden, right before my eyes, the woman began to change forms-first to an old, old man, then to a young woman, to a middle-aged woman and then back to the old lady I had first seen. In shock, I watched as she went through these changes one after the other.
When she saw Jesus, she cried, “Lord, have mercy on me. Let me out of this place of torment.” She leaned forward in her chair and reached for Jesus, but could not get to Him. The changing continued. Even her clothes changed, so that she was attired as a man, then a young girl, a middle aged woman and an old woman in turn. All of this changing seemed to take only a few minutes. I asked Jesus, “Why, Lord?” Again she screamed, “O Lord, let me out of here before they return.” She now stood at the front of the cell, clenching the bars with tight fists. She said, “I know Your love is real. I know Your love is true. Let me out!” Then as the woman cried in terror, I saw that something was beginning to rip the flesh from her body. “She is not what she appears to be,” said the Lord.
The woman sat back in the chair and began to rock. But now only a skeleton was sitting in the rocking chair-a skeleton with a dirty mist inside. Where there had been a clothed body only minutes ago, now there were blackened and burned bones and empty sockets for eyes. The soul of the woman moaned and cried out to Jesus in repentance. But her cries were too late. “Back on earth,” said Jesus, “This woman was a witch and a worshiper of satan. She not only practiced witchcraft, but she taught witchcraft to others. From the time she was a child, her family practiced the black arts. They loved darkness rather than light. “Many times”, said the Lord, “I called on her to repent. She mocked Me and said, ‘I enjoy serving satan. I will keep on serving him.’ She rejected the truth and would not repent of her evil. She turned many people away from the Lord, some of them are in Hell with her today. If she had repented, I would have saved her and many of her family, but she would not listen. “Satan deceived this woman into believing that she would receive a kingdom of own as her reward for serving him. He told her she would never die, but would have a life with him forever. She died praising satan and came here and asked him for her kingdom. Satan, the father of lies, laughed in her face and said: ‘Did you think I would divide my kingdom with you? This is your kingdom.’ And he locked her in this cell and torments her day and night.
“On earth this woman taught many witches, both white witches and black witches, to do their magic. One of her magical tricks was to change from a young woman, to a middle-aged woman, to an old woman-even to an old man. It was fun in those days to make the change and frighten lesser witches with her magic. But now she suffers the pains of Hell, and her flesh is ripped away with each change. She cannot control it now, and keeps changing from one form to another, but her real form is the misty soul inside her skeleton. Satan uses her for his evil purposes and taunts and mocks her. Every so often she is brought back before satan to be tormented for his pleasure. I called her many times, and I would have saved her. But she would not have Me. Now she begs and pleads for forgiveness, but it is too late. Now she is lost without hope.” (NEXT PART 5)
