In Pain a Little Boy Meets Jesus Crucified

From behind, a big, gentle hand and arm in a white sleeve pulled me up into his lap and held me as a little boy, nine years old.

Jesus and the Children
The vision showed me a force pulling horribly out-of-control to the brink of the churning black hole in the cosmos, the bottomless pit. I watched men and women sucked screaming into its infinite depths with no hope of return. I saw the terrifying entrance to death in hell.

Am I going down there?” I asked in alarm.

From behind, a big, gentle hand and arm in a white sleeve pulled me up into his lap and held me as a little boy, nine years old. At lap-chest height, I could not see his face, but I sure felt his most tender love.

No, you're not,” his voice spoke incredibly rich and kind, soothing my heart in tone. I'll never forget his most loving sound.

I have some things I want you to do,” he said. I had accepted Jesus intentionally as my Lord and Savior at Baptism when I was five years old.

Weeks later, at the children's hospital, two medical interns proceeded to cut my full-leg cast off my surgically corrected clubfoot. This caused the worst pain I experienced over my one to nine years in periodic casts and night braces. The power saw felt like it was actually cutting through my leg with its round sharp blade. I really felt so. Tears ran down my cheeks and my teeth grit.

My Dad trained me to offer my pain to Jesus on the Cross. This time, it was beyond bearing.

That's when the stormy gray clouds parted, and Jesus revealed himself clearly in full color to me hanging on the Cross, crucified. He suffered horribly, beyond belief, pain in his hands and feet. Pain, in his head and whole being. The flow of my tender tears increased in my own heart for him. His head appeared massively swollen, and gray with blood-drained color.

At the height of pain, he slowly turned his face toward me and smiled! His whole being soaked with love. The clouds closed and the vision disappeared.

I told the medical interns what I had just seen. One intern tried to offer me a lollipop. I refused. The other intern switched off the power saw and finished removing the cast with a painless hand saw.

I believe what he said, he saw,” the intern spoke deep voiced to the other.

Dancing in Flowers of Heaven

I suspect many barely believe in Heaven, and many know so little they don't venture to think about the unknown.

Believers forget their eternal future. Or, they at least take it for granted. Rarely, almost never, do we hear others conjecturing about Heaven. Yet, we are told it is important to keep our life's goals in sight. I suspect many barely believe in Heaven, and many know so little they don't venture to think about the unknown.

We know scripture tells much and implies more. Those who have died, visited, and returned, can tell us what they remember. I find it wise to notice what is most common in various witness reports.

Heaven is our eternal home in the presence of God, what is termed the Beatific Vision. All light emanates from the throne of God himself. God is Light. God is Love. “Be holy for I am Holy,” says the Lord. “Without holiness, no one can see the Lord.” The Father does not stand in the presence of sin.

We are in the eternal Heaven for one reason. Jesus the Messiah gave himself as the divine sacrifice of perfect love for the sins of mankind, for all those who believe in him. Or, innocents who died as blood martyrs, I might add, for instance aborted babies. Or, innocent persons, the Epistle to Romans implies, without sin, those determined by God. Otherwise, unrepentant sin against the Creator is the reason for condemnation to hell. I know one thing, those who rebel against the Creator, freely choose hell.

In Heaven, you are not a nameless or an ambiguous spirit. You keep your personal identity. Jesus, Moses, and Elijah appeared together on the mountain of the Transfiguration. Jesus appeared several times after his Resurrection, and believers always related to him. In Heaven you recognize your family, your relatives, your friends, likely anyone, according to visionaries.
People will be in their perfect glorified bodies, no disabilities, no eyeglasses. I believe Jesus will be the first to greet and welcome us. I told my wife I will then dance joyfully with her in a great field of flowers at the foot of a magnificent mountain range, no longer with my disabled foot. I've seen this in my dreams many times.

Glorified bodies in heart, body, mind, and spirit! We will not be just blobs of invisible spiritual cloud floating around. Think of Jesus as he appeared to the apostles in the upper room and ate with them. He was in his glorified, risen body. The only wounds in Heaven will be his, our license to the Presence the Ancient of Days. In our glorified bodies, heart, mind, body, and spirit, we will truly function. How will God use us in Paradise?

Just conjecturing. Since we keep our identity and person-hood, might he not use us in goodly ways he used us on earth? The use of singers, musicians, teachers, might be easy to perceive. But what about writers, builders, cooks, artists, painters? Maybe, some of us will need retraining! I know one thing for certain. God has no problem. He said he has a place for you, already prepared.

God is Mighty on you!
Whatever you need:
Ask, and you shall receive.
Seek, and you shall find.
Knock, and the door shall be opened
to you.

Heavenly Blessings,
Bill Hunt

Vision in the night. Angel or demon? Clearly seen, tall through the ceiling, at foot of my bed. Total Pax. Could be an angel. Then, I saw the beard and his dark wavy hair, no it's him. In mystical light like a haze, He held two great broad swords in big strong hands pointed east and west. The giant swords shone in the room's real light. “He is here,” announced a voice. “I am here,” said the Warrior King who stood so tall. His spiritual gown of many folds waved softly. Very still, he stood in majesty, but full of Life and Presence. His mighty Protection powered over my wife and me. “Now I know he's coming,” I said, and turned over in peace. I glanced back. He stood there, mighty. I cannot otherwise account or explain this. 2-15-2014

God sees those who persecute, abuse, and torture

God in his perfect justice judges those who exploit others.

(Jer 30:16 NKJV) Therefore all those who devour you shall be devoured; And all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; Those who plunder you shall become plunder, And all who prey upon you I will make a prey.

Across the world, man's inhumanity to man will recoil on his own head. Gods expresses his perfect justice in the ancient book of Job.

(Job 18:5-10 NKJV) The light of the wicked indeed goes out, And the flame of his fire does not shine. The light is dark in his tent, And his lamp beside him is put out. The steps of his strength are shortened, And his own counsel casts him down. For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he walks into a snare. The net takes him by the heel, And a snare lays hold of him. A noose is hidden for him on the ground, And a trap for him in the road. 

Turmoil will in return strike those who are cruel to others. Those, who chose not to heed the second great commandment to regard others as themselves.

(Job 18:11-21 NKJV) Terrors frighten him on every side, And drive him to his feet. His strength is starved, And destruction is ready at his side. It devours patches of his skin; The firstborn of death devours his limbs. He is uprooted from the shelter of his tent, And they parade him before the king of terrors. They dwell in his tent who are none of his; Brimstone is scattered on his dwelling. His roots are dried out below, And his branch withers above. The memory of him perishes from the earth, And he has no name among the renowned. He is driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world. He has neither son nor posterity among his people, Nor any remaining in his dwellings. Those in the west are astonished at his day, As those in the east are frightened. Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not know God.

God sees evil men as bullys who devour others as with the ease they would consume a loaf of bread. Such are those as wicked leaders, politicians, judges, enforcers, criminals, murderers, slanderers, the angry, sexually immoral, spouse abusers, abortionists, all those who fail to exercise moral responsibility and who abuse others.

(Ps 14:4 NKJVV) Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call on the LORD? There they are in great fear, For God is with the generation of the righteous. You shame the counsel of the poor, But the LORD is his refuge.

Scripture warns humanity there is worldwide day of God's judgment coming against all those who rebelled against him. I see that men choose judgment individually long before they come before the throne. There will be a worldwide rapture for the godly, an end-all battle against the evil, and a divine feast for the holy welcomed by the King.

(Zep 1:14-18 NKJV) The great day of the LORD is near; It is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the LORD is bitter; There the mighty men shall cry out. That day is a day of wrath, A day of trouble and distress, A day of devastation and desolation, A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of trumpet and alarm Against the fortified cities And against the high towers. "I will bring distress upon men, And they shall walk like blind men, Because they have sinned against the LORD; Their blood shall be poured out like dust, And their flesh like refuse." Neither their silver nor their gold Shall be able to deliver them In the day of the LORD'S wrath; But the whole land shall be devoured By the fire of His jealousy, For He will make speedy riddance Of all those who dwell in the land.

And Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, will draw his people in the kingdoms of the earth before the throne to serve him.

(Zep 3:8-9 NKJ) "Therefore wait for Me," says the LORD, "Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All my fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. "For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him with one accord.”

Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus, Come.
