I have been listening to your newer archived messages. In my case, it’s not all new to me. My friend Greg and I have and these type of discussions for a few years now. By the way, I should probably tell you that I live in Kamloops and I am good friends with Greg. I will be having coffee with him this morning.
I am going through all of your fear messages. In some ways I am not fearful. I was a jail guard working with some of the toughest and I was so relaxed. In other ways I can be gripped with fear that may be demonic. I don’t watch TV but I do spend a lot of time on Steve Quayles site watching the unfolding of events. I will continue to listen to your teaching in this area. Thank you so much for this teaching.
I have a question. Is there more than one hell? Paul went to the third heaven, so there must be at least 3 heavens right? What about hell(s)? the reason that I ask is, Greg and I had a good friend (Christian) that claimed to have died and went to a type of hell. He said that it was pure white and he was all alone. He was absolutely terrified and he screamed out “JESUS SAVE ME”! He went back into his body and the tumor in his heart was removed from the heart and moved alongside the heart. He died a few weeks later.
After this happened a friend at my Church had me watch a video of another man that went to a pure white place. In the video the man believed but did not know Jesus. It reminds me of the scripture, Matthew 7:21
Matthew 7:21-23 New International Version (NIV)
True and False Disciples
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
This the youtube video of the older man, ( a house painter I think) that went to a pure white place.

thanks again for everything,
Glad you are getting alot out of the teaching! Yes, the New Testament confirms three heavens. The Book of Enoch speaks of ten. I wouldn’t refer to many hells but there are several regions of torment also, presented in the Book of Enoch and other extra-canonical texts. I also bring out in my book “Who are the Aliens?” that there are several locations of torment and imprisonment for the fallen angels- under the earth, under the sea, second heaven, etc.Particularly, the Watchers referred to in the books of Enoch, Jubilees, 2 Peter, Jude, etc.
However, Christ referred to only one region of temporal punishment and imprisonment for the human damned-Gehenna ( Greek: Tartarus, Hades, Hell) also referred to by Peter. He referred to the place of eternal punishment for all of the above as the Lake of Fire. There is much confusion in Church teaching because teachers do not make the distinction between Hell which is a temporal place of spiritual imprisonment awaiting judgment, as opposed to the Lake of Fire which is the eternal abode of all damned humanity, fallen angels, demons and hybrids following the final judgment (See Revelation 20).
