After he had been in hell for 23 minutes (according to our “earthly” time measurement), Bill
Wiese met with Jesus. As an explanation for his short journey through the realm of the dead Jesus explained
to Bill that there are even children of God who do not believe in the existence of hell. While
he doubted whether they would like to believe his testimony of what he had just experienced, Jesus replied:
“It is not your task to convince their hearts, that is the task of the Holy Spirit. It is
your job to tell them about this and I convince their heart.” Incidentally, it is surprising
how often people indicate that they know much more about existence after death. That is not surprising,
by the way, because this knowledge is part of our standard equipment.
Something to think about: it seems that at least
half the world is looking for the lost paradise. A paradise about which the Bible teaches us that it was
once created by our Creator. So, they definitely want to find back His paradise, but.... that Creator
himself? No thanks! Because that same half world definitely does not want to know that there is a Creator!
So, who is stupid here? The Creator who shows Himself through that creation, or perhaps that....?
