In those days people will seek death, but never find it. They will long to die, but death will escape them.
When the Lord weeps, it's different than we do. He would weep with this pain in His heart and He would sob profoundly.
"I did not create hell for humanity," Jesus said.
So I asked Him, "Then why is humanity here, Lord?"
He answered, "Daughter, I created hell for satan and his angels, who are the demons;
(Matt. 25:41) but, because of sin and the lack of repentance, humanity ends here, and there are more that perish than those who reach My glory!" (Matt 7:14) He continued weeping and it would hurt me so much to see how He cried. "Daughter, I gave My life for humanity, so that it would not perish, so that it would not end up in this place. I gave My life out of love and mercy, so that humanity would proceed to repentance and could enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
Jesus would moan as someone who could no longer withstand the pain, that's how much pain He felt watching the people here.

At least he found out early exactly how evil the God of the Old Testament really is. Now he can move forward and find a new way to experience life and search for his own truth without being bound by the evils of Christianity, or Islam, or any other religion that promotes hell, torture, and death.
I learned that the demons will fight the angels if they must, but they prefer not to do so. They find that it is easier and safer to destroy us through our own will where the angels are unable to interfere, rather than go outside our will where they would have to fight angels personally. Because of this, the demons have developed great skills in the area of deception. They move through our lives by deceit and trickery and keep us totally unaware of their activity.
I was made aware of the fact that not all demons are in the Second Heaven. There are some demons so awesome that they are reserved in chains in Hell, however, satan and his army of demons are not in Hell, presently. Neither do they want to be there. I was not permitted to look into Hell, nor was I permitted to view the chained demons. I do know that these demons who are chained went beyond the limitations of their domain.
God in His wisdom has allowed satan and his demons certain bounds or limitations within which they may work. They may not go beyond those limitations established by the Lord, however, those demons who are chained in Hell did just that. Because they went beyond the restrictions established by the Lord, they are now chained in Hell.

It sounds like many of you had better hope this boy is wrong.
If he isn't you will one day remember typing what you did and wish you hadn't written this off so flippantly.

Seriously, people, if Jesus REALLY wanted people to be "saved" from a place called Hell and all it's fire and torture, etc., he would just do it! There is a passage in the bible where it says that Jesus "wants" everyone to be saved. And yet somehow, even though he's all-powerful, he doesn't get what he wants. Therefore, he doesn't do it because either
a. He does not exist.
b. Hell does not exist.
c. He doesn't give a damn.
d. He's not who you think he is.
e. All of the above.
There is sufficient light for those who wish to see, and sufficient darkness for those of the opposite disposition. Enough clarity to illumine the elect, and enough darkness to keep them humble. Sufficient darkness to blind the reprobate, and sufficient clarity to condemn them and make them inexcusable.
The "freewill" argument doesn't work here because an all-knowing, omnipotent god could make it happen even with your own free will. And apparently, the only thing Jesus wants from anyone is to just believe he exists! If you can't do that, well then, to hell with you!
Amazing how an all-powerful God can't just appear and prove he exists. Instead of every 2000 years, he could do this all the time to everyone and everyone would believe it and everyone would be "saved" from hell. Just more proof that your god doesn't really "love" you, I guess. Or anyone else for that matter.
