The Book of Life

Did you know there is a book in heaven, called the Book of Life? It's not some imaginary book.  It's a real book, and you need to be sure your name is written in it.  Let's look at what the Bible says about this book, and what people have said, who testified that they saw it when they were given a divine revelation of heaven.

Whose Names are In the Book
First, I'd like to show you what the Bible says about whose names are in the Book of Life.

The apostle Paul wrote in his epistle to the Philippians, "Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life."  (Phi 4:3)

Jesus Christ said in His message to the Church in Sardis, which the apostle John recorded in The Revelation, "He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the Book of Life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels."  (Rev 3:5)

There were seven Columbian youths, who received a revelation of heaven and hell. When they went to heaven, they saw the Book of Life there.  Here is a major excerpt from their testimony:

"We then came to a very immense area; a very wonderful and beautiful place.  This place was full of precious stones: gold, emeralds, rubies and diamonds.  The floor was made of pure gold.  We then went to a place where there were three very large books.  The first one was a Bible made of gold.  In Psalms it tells us that the Word of God is eternal and that the Word of God remains in Heaven forever. (Psalms 119:89) We were looking at a huge golden Bible; the pages, the scripture, everything was made of pure gold."

"The second book we saw was bigger than the Bible.  It was open and an angel was sitting there writing inside the book.  Together with the Lord Jesus we got closer to see what the angel was writing.  The angel was writing all of the things that were happening on the Earth.  Everything that has happened; including the date, the hour, everything is recorded there.  This is done so the Word of the Lord can be fulfilled where it says that the Books were opened, and that the people on the Earth were judged according to their works that were written in those books (Revelations 20:12).  The angel was writing all the things that people were doing here on Earth, good or bad, as it is written."

"We continued to the place where the third book was.  It was even bigger than the last book!  The book was closed, but we got closer to it.  All seven of us together took the book down from its stand, according to command of the Lord, and we put it on a pillar."

"The pillars and columns in Heaven are so wonderful!  They are not made like the ones on the Earth.  The columns were like a braid, they were made of different precious stones.  Some were made of diamonds, others were made of pure emeralds, others were made of pure gold, and others were made of a combination of many different type of stones.  I then understand that God really is the owner of all things, as it is written in Haggai 2:8, 'The gold is mine, and silver is mine.' I understood that God is absolutely rich and He owns all the riches in the world.  I also understood that the world in all its fullness belongs to our God, and He wants to give it to all those who ask in faith."

"The Lord said, 'Ask me and I will give you the nations for an inheritance.' (Psalms 2:8)  This book that we put on the column was so big that in order to turn a page we had to walk each page to the other side of the book.  We tried to read what was in that book, as the Lord asked us.  At first, it was difficult to read because it was written in strange characters that we could not understand.  It was different from any Earthly language; it was something totally Heavenly.  But with the help of the Holy Ghost, we were given the grace to understand it.  It was like a bandage was taken off our eyes and we could then understand the writing; as clear as our own language."

"We could see that all seven of our names were written in the book.  The Lord told us that it was the Book of Life. (Revelations 3:5)  We noted that the names written in the book were not the names we were called on Earth; these names were new, so the Word of God can be fulfilled when it says that He would give us a new name that no one else knows but the person who receives it. (Revelations 2:17)"

"In Heaven, we were able to pronounce our names, but once the Lord brought us back to Earth those names were taken from our memories and our hearts.  The Word of God is eternal, and it has to be fulfilled.  My friends, the Bible says, (Revelations 3:11) Don't let anyone take your crown, do not let any one to usurp or remove that place that the Father has ready for you.  In Heaven, there are millions of things that are wonderful, we just can't express it with our mouths.  But I want to tell you something, 'God is waiting for you!' However it is only the people that perseveres until the end, who will be saved! (Mark 13:13)" -- from Revelations of Heaven and Hell to 7 Youths

Korean brother Yong Doo Kim’s son, Joseph Kim was taken to heaven and saw the Book of Life.  He wrote in brother Kim’s book called Baptize by Blazing Fire Volume Three: "Then, while I was still at the throne of God, I saw precisely four beasts: one was a lion, a calf, a beast with the face of a human, and an eagle soaring with its wings -- just as it is mentioned in the book of Revelation 4:7. There were six wings attached to it, with countless eyes in the front as well as the back, and it looked closely and observed what was happening on earth where we lived. As the angels opened up the Book of Life before the throne of God, God turned the pages of the book one by one looking for something."

Joseph continued, "A short while later God’s enormous hand found and confirmed the matter He had in mind from the book of life. So, after He found it, He pointed at me saying, 'Joseph Kim!' and then commanded, 'Bring me Joseph’s bottle for his tears, as well as sister Shin, Sung-Kyung’s tear bottle to me.'

“Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” (Psalm 56:8, KJV).

In Volume Four of Baptized by Blazing Fire, brother Kim’s daughter Joo-Eun recorded her experience in heaven and said, “The angel who is in charge of the book of life at God’s throne is called Seraphim.”

Whose Names are Not In the Book
Next let's see whose names are not in the Book.

It's recorded in the book of Revelation, "All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the Book of Life of the Lamb who has been slain." (Rev 13:8)

"The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.  (Rev 17:8)

We learn from these verses that everyone whose name has not been written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world will worship the beast. These same people will admire him, who blasphemes God and His tabernacle. 

You Will be Judged from the Things Written in the Book
The Bible is very clear that you will be judged from the things written in the books.

A sister named Ayodelle Sawyer, from Sierre Leone was taken by Jesus Christ to heaven, and saw the Book of Life near the great big gates of heaven.  She saw her name written in it, but it was not her favorite nickname.  Her original birth name, Ayo, was the name written in heaven.  She saw the angels recording things in it faster than a computer.  Inside this Book, the Lord showed her that every thought you think on earth, and every thing you do -- whether good or bad -- is recorded in this Book.

It's recorded in the book of Revelation: "And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."  (Rev 20:12-15)

It says the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.  It also says that if anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.  That's why you need to make sure your name is in it!

Only Those Whose Names are in the Book Dwell in Heaven
The only people who are allowed to dwell in heaven are those whose names are in the Book of Life.

"In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed; and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life." (Rev 21:25-27)

In Psalm 87, the psalmist wrote about how God recognizes who's born from above, born of the Spirit.  He knows those who are His.  And He has a register in heaven where all our names are written.

"His foundation is in the holy mountains. The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah. 'I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know Me; Behold, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia: "This one was born there." But of Zion it shall be said, 'This one and that one were born in her'; And the Most High Himself will establish her. The LORD will count when He registers the peoples, 'This one was born there.' Selah. Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes shall say, 'All my springs of joy are in you.'"  (Psa 87:1-7).

Blotting out names from the Book of Life
It's important for you to understand that just as names are added to the Book of Life, they can also be deleted.  The Scriptures are very clear about this.

Moses wrote, "The LORD spoke further to me, saying, 'I have seen this people, and indeed, it is a stubborn people. 'Let Me alone, that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under heaven; and I will make of you a nation mightier and greater than they.'  (Deu 9:13-14)

The Lord was so angry with the Israelites for their stubborn rebellion that He was about to blot their names out, and establish an even mightier nation through Moses.

In another passage, Moses wrote: "The LORD shall never be willing to forgive him, but rather the anger of the LORD and His jealousy will burn against that man, and every curse which is written in this book will rest on him, and the LORD will blot out his name from under heaven."  (Deu 29:20)

Maybe you are wondering about the meaning of this expression "blot out their names from under heaven."  You might be wondering if that simply means to destroy their physical earthly lives while preserving their souls in heaven.  But this next passage makes it clear:

The LORD said to Moses, "Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My Book."  (Exo 32:33)

This leaves no doubt that the Lord will erase from His Book whoever has sinned against Him.  This is why a life of daily repentance is the shortest route to God's mercy and compassion.

As the apostle Paul wrote: "Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: 'The Lord knows those who are his,' and, 'Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.'” (2 Tim 2:19).

Angelica Zambrano from Ecuador was taken by Jesus Christ to heaven, and saw the Book of Life.

She said: Then I saw angels around me. I recognized the Angel Michael, because I met him before. The Lord said, "Listen, angel Michael is going to show you something". The angel Gabriel was also at my side. Then the angel Michael took my hand, and the Lord commanded him, "Take her and let her see what you have to show her."

"As we walked, we soon began to climb up the most beautiful staircase. It seemed like a Ball Room. And in a high place in the room there was an altar, with a most beautiful golden pulpit. When we got to the pulpit, I saw a huge book and I asked Michael, 'this book, what is it?'"

"While Michael was on the right side of the pulpit, he put his hand on the book and raised his voice saying, 'Angelica, this book you see here is the Book of Life.' I opened it and looked at it, page by page. I said, 'What does this book mean, what is written on it?'  Michael said, 'Open it, upon this book is written all the names of those whom on Earth have repented and turned their lives to our Heavenly Father.'"

"As I was looking through the book, I asked Michael, 'Is my name written here?' 'Yes, look it up and you’ll find it.' I looked, but couldn’t find it. A little worried, I asked, 'It is not here, my name is not here, I can’t find it, where is it?' He responded, 'Look, here is your name.' I was glad to see my name, but I could not understand it because it was written in another language. I noticed that many names were sparkling, so I asked him, 'Why are those names bright and tingling?' He responded, 'These names you see sparkling in the Book of Life, are those people on Earth, at this very moment are repenting from their sins and seeking for God’s presence. Look, these other names are hardly seen and some are being deleted as many have already been, are those people on Earth that are turning away from God’s ways. You have to do something, do something!'"

"Once again, he put his hand over the Book of Life and said to me, 'Go and tell mankind that if their name is not written in this Book, they cannot enter the Kingdom of My Heavenly Father, they cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.' I responded, 'Alright, I will do so.'   It is written in Revelation 20:15 'if anyone's name was not found recorded in the Book of Life, he was hurled into the lake of fire.' We walked out and went back to Jesus, he said, 'It is time for you to return to Earth.'" 

Angelica says, "Do you think your name is written in the Book of Life? If you do not think so, go seek of God. If you've turned your back on God, reconcile with Him, because He is willing to forgive you, no matter what you have done. Remember, He came to save sinners; He came to forgive all mankind’s sins on Earth. Just open your heart and ask Him for forgiveness. He is willing to cleanse us from unrighteousness, as it clearly says in 1 John 1:9 ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.’"

Brother Yong Doo Kim wrote in his book called, Baptized by Blazing Fire, Volume Two: "There once was a deaconess in our church. When she was living faithfully, she received many gifts from the Holy Spirit. However, the gifts were all taken back. Soon afterward, she began drinking and smoking frequently. Moreover, she would talk to a man over the telephone daily and meet him in secret. I persistently attempted to persuade her from dating that man. I even yelled at her but she continued to see the man. God is patient with people. However, if people don’t repent, they will be subject to His wrath. God showed me in a vision that He had erased her name from the book of life. When we found out, we all shook in fear. When God gives us a chance, we must take it, no matter what."

"Jesus said, 'That particular saint mocked God and troubled the Holy Spirit. Therefore, if she doesn’t mourn and sincerely repent, she won’t be entering Heaven. If the judgment of the congregation members is hard, then how much more will I judge the pastors who are committing adultery? The ministers must repent to the point of death. The ministers of today are mocking God. They say, "These are the days of grace and the gospel sets us free. Just repent and one will be forgiven unconditionally." These are the days one needs to be in fear more than the days of the Old Testament.' The Lord warned us the day is coming when we will all have to give account for our deeds."

Brother Kim continues, "As I write this chapter, I’m experiencing many hours of dismay and dissension. Jesus said, 'Do we then nullify the law by this faith. Not at all! Rather we uphold the law.' (Romans 3:31) In fact, we’re living our daily life within the Lord’s amazing grace. However, living in His grace doesn’t mean our sins just disappear. We are abusing God’s grace if we don’t repent. A daily repentant life is the fastest and shortest route to God’s mercy and compassion."

Putting it All Together
If you have been asleep spiritually, I hope this post has served as a wake up call for you.  If your name is not written in the Book of Life, you will be among those who worship the beast, and you will be thrown into the lake of fire. If you once gave your life to Jesus, but you are not living in obedience to His Word, you are not living a life of holiness, righteousness, and Truth, then you need to take this message seriously.  Your name could be fading from the Book of Life or already deleted.  If that's you, then you need to repent fearfully, cry out for God's mercy, and turn back to God, proving your repentance by your deeds.

He came to save sinners; He came to forgive all mankind’s sins on Earth. Just open your heart and ask Him for forgiveness. He is willing to cleanse us from unrighteousness, as it clearly says in 1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."

The names that are sparkling in the Book of Life, are those people on Earth, at this very moment are repenting from their sins and seeking for God’s presence. However, the names of those people on Earth that are turning away from God’s ways are hardly seen and some are being deleted as many have already been.

And if you are already awake spiritually, it should be a great encouragement to you to know that the Book of Life is a literal book, and upon this book is written all the names of those whom on Earth have repented and turned their lives to our Heavenly Father.  It should also be an encouragement to stay the course and live a life of holiness in every area.  That includes inward holiness of the heart, and outward holiness of the body.  This way you will ensure that your name is never erased from the Book.

Don't let anyone take your crown, do not let any one to usurp or remove that place that the Father has ready for you. We're living every day in God's grace, but that does not give us an excuse to sin.  Don't abuse God's grace. Every thought you think on earth, and every thing you do -- whether good or bad -- is recorded in a book in heaven. So be earnest and repent.  God is waiting for you! However it is only the people that perseveres until the end, who will be saved!

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Godly Attire and Adornment -- Seven Divine Revelations

The Lord has taken many people to heaven and hell, and given them an end-time message for the Church.  I would like to highlight seven of them, whom the Lord specifically spoke to about godly apparel and adornment.  Some of these people were violating God’s standards in this area, and were shocked to find out the Truth.

I want to be very clear that what I have written below are merely excerpts from their revelations.  In order to properly judge or discern each revelation, I strongly recommend you listen to each one in its entirety.  I also want to say that these revelations were not exclusively about godly attire and adornment.  Many other things are addressed in their revelations, too.  Here are the seven revelations for you to listen to and prayerfully discern for yourself:

James Agboola from Nigeria 
A former Muslim, named James Agboola, had a revelation of hell, in which the Lord spoke to him about many things and gave him warnings for the church. One of the things the Lord warned about was adorning our bodies with artificial things. Here is his testimony about that from the video.

And the voice now begin to speak to me in great pain. Jesus Christ speak to me in sadness. He was not happy. He speak to me with a sorrowful heart...He said, “James, do you hear the cry of people in hell?” I said, “Yes, sir.” He said, “Many of them are those who called themselves so-called ‘Christians’ like you. While on earth they claimed holiness and righteousness. But because of ‘little, little, little, little things, small, small, small things’, ‘it doesn’t matter.’”

He said, “That is why many of them are in hell. And I hear them crying that now, they believe. They want to change. But it’s too late. It is too late.” He said, “James, when I created man, I created man in my own image. And my glory was upon him.” He said, “But my enemy, the devil, now added a lot of packaging, packaging of the glory I gave man, packaging of earring, necklace, attachments, all of them. God says, “My eye cannot behold it once anything artificial...”



He said, “James, when I created women, did I put hole in their ear?” I said, “No.” He said, “How come I now saw them with hole in their ears?” He said, “James, when I created man, every part of their body that is supposed to have hole, did I not put hole there?” I said, “Yes.”  He said, “How come they now begin to put hole by themselves?” He said, “And once anything artificial has been added, no matter what it is, my face cannot look at them. My face cannot behold them.”

See James Agboola Revelation of Heaven and Hell.

Adelaida de Carrillo from Bolivia
This woman was a nominal Christian up until the Lord took her to heaven and hell.  In heaven she was given a very long skirt to wear.  Her legs were totally covered.  In hell she said she saw a woman of God who was there for dying her gray hair black.  Adelaida says the Lord is against the women of God who wear make-up on their face.  This is at 38:36 in the video. Jesus said, “I’m only pleased with the natural look on my saints. You don’t need make-up to look beautiful to anyone. Those things don’t please Me.  If anyone loves the world, he is an enemy of God.” She urged her listeners to tell others to stop using make-up. She said to ask the Lord, “What are the things I’m doing that don’t please you.  The Lord is totally against women that use jewelry."

And the Lord did not just warn her about godly attire and adornment.  He also warned about matters of the heart and tongue. She learned that gossip can make you lose you salvation. She said that talking about your pastors and neighbors can make you lose your salvation. She urged her listeners to, "Tell people they need to give their life to Jesus."  You really should watch the entire video to hear it directly from her as she told it.

Margaret O Amure from Nigeria

Sister Margaret O. Amure
As I have written about in a separate blog, Margaret is the pastor at God Divine Favour Bible Church in Nigeria.  When she had this experience, she was being judged for wearing makeup, immodest clothes, and jewelry.  She warned women not to wear jewelry, lipstick, or any makeup, or immodest clothes like trousers. She said, “If you do, then you will be judged by the same Scriptures I was judged by.”  And she cited several like 1 Pet 3:1-6 (also see 1 Tim 2:9-10).

Although I have not yet personally spoken to sister Marguerite herself, I made a good faith effort to do so.  I managed to speak briefly with her son, who says that she really did die, and she is a good mother.  I also spoke with a pastor who knows her well, named Dr. Stephen Tepu Aikhoje, whom she acknowledges with gratitude at the end of her video testimony, as one of the people who helped her.  Dr. Aikhoje said that she was the State Director for the Police Chaplaincy, and he sat under her leadership as such, while they were chaplains together.  He went to her home and her church several times to pray with her, as her case was getting worse before she died.  He said, "She is a trustworthy leader, very disciplined, and I know her to be truthful."  In fact, he distributes CDs of her testimony.   Therefore, I feel confident in posting this testimony without any reservations.

 

Olga from Russia
She was a backslidden woman who returned to church, and sang in the choir, but continued to wear makeup and pants and jewelry.  She was taken to the edge of hell to see where she was going. satan had lots of jewelry, many earrings, necklaces, makeup, etc. Olga had all these things, too.  She never imagined satan would have these. She saw satan giving out these adornments to Christians, who were still alive on earth. When satan came to her, he said that he had wanted her soul for a long time. She said he would never get her soul, but he replied, “The Word of God says: Any kind of man’s clothing on a woman is an abomination to God.”  She said she had heard this many times before from Christian brothers and sisters, including her father, who was a very good and kind man.  Her father had asked her many times not to wear makeup and pants. But she listened to another voice on earth, who said, “It’s not sin. It’s not sin to have adornments. Wear pants. The pastor’s wife does. If it’s ok for others, it’s ok for you, too. There is a sister who sings in the choir and wears pants, so it’s not sin.” Now satan was rebuking her from the Word, and she knew she was guilty of everything. She didn’t think the Lord would give mercy to her.

Listen to her testimony on video and read it here.

She also said, “My dear sisters…when you come before the Lord, please cover your heads. How can you stay in God’s presence with your heads uncovered?  And you’re not ashamed? Don’t defend yourselves by saying, ‘The Lord says this is only for wives. It’s not for me.’ Sisters, when you come before God, you must cover your heads.”

She continued, “This is why I plead with you, my dear sisters, when you come before God, dress yourself in a godly dress. Don’t dress yourself in this world’s dress. I don’t want to be harsh with you. I am just pleading with you, because if the Lord comes to you and searches your heart, you know it will be found empty. Before you came to the meetings, you didn’t pray. Instead you spent a long time in front of the mirror. Then you come to church and you want blessings? Repent today!”

She said that after being gone for 3 hours, “I came back to my house at 4 AM. I had no rest until 6 AM after I had carried everything out from my house that wasn’t godly and wasn’t pleasing to God.  Makeup and everything had to go. I had thought that it would only take me two minutes to take everything out and repent.  I tried to clean everything out in only a few minutes, but it took me two hours.  I took everything out and I didn’t feel sorry about any of those possessions.”

Claire Andoun from Cameroon
Claire Andoun Atongo is a former prostitute who has become a new creation in Christ. She says the Lord has been speaking to her about the dirtiness in His Church (I urge you to watch her other video here). He's been showing her that there is a strange power that has come into the church, because this unclean spirit has been invited in by the women of God.  And the pastors will not preach against it.  This strange power is the Queen of the Coast, who leads the sisters in the Church to dress immodestly.



She said, “The Lord is angry about the way women of the last days are dressing.  They are dressed like the world.  They don’t know the difference between a child of God and non-believer, and no pastor is talking about it.  That’s why the Lord is sending me to warn women of the last days. This message is not for everybody. This message is for people, who are really determined to make heaven.”

She had a prophetic dream, in which the Lord said, “My Church is dirty!”  Also see it here.

I have spoken with a godly brother, named Yves Nahishakiye, who knows sister Claire well, and knew her before she came to Christ.  He vouched for her godly character.  I have also spoken with Claire myself on a number of occasions and prayed with her.  I have heard her share her salvation testimony, as well as her testimonies of revelations the Lord has given her. [Note: During the three years since this article was first posted, I have gotten to know her better and we have become friends]. I am convinced she is a genuine woman of God, who seeks with all her heart to please the Lord.

On May 10, 2017, about four years after I initially posted this article, Claire went home to be with the Lord. For more about her death and the remarkable circumstances that surrounded it, please see my articles The Home Going of Sister Claire Andoun Atongo, and Revelation of Sister Claire Andoun in Heaven.

Sister Ayodele Sawyerr from Sierre Leone
The Lord showed sister Ayodele Sawyerr a woman of God for whom she had great regard.  Regarding this woman, sister Ayo said, "When she stood to minister the Word of God, you feel you can get the Word of God. He said, 'She is my daughter. But look at the way she appears in front of people. Look at the hair attachments, the short skirts; the code of dressing is wrong to God.  She's preaching the Word, but the dressing, the [hair] attachments...' Then the Lord said, 'Go and tell her I sent you, and that if she does not repent and remove these things she is putting on -- these attachments, this makeup, these things -- she will not make it.'" Sister Ayo was shocked, because she would not have reached that conclusion on her own!



Afterward the Lord showed her about two ladies, who were preparing to go to a church service (see 49:00 in video).  The older one was dressed modestly and never put on anything.  She came to the younger one's door and beckoned her to come.  But the younger one just said, "Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait."  And Jesus said to Ayo, "I want you to look." The Lord said to Ayo as she watched this on the screen, "Look!"  All of a sudden the lady came out, and what Ayo saw was that the makeup was so thick that she looked like a Jezebel.  And the blouse she put on was like an empty bra.  You could see the hair attachments.  You could see the way the lady dressed. Sister Ayo said, "She just looked like the Queen of the Coast."

She said the Lord was angry.  His countenance changed.  His tone of talking changed in that particular area.  He said, "Look! They have idolized these things. With all those things, they can no longer serve Me. Go and tell them, My daughter, 'If anyone be a woman of God, no matter the kind of congregation.  If she is putting on these things, she will not make it. She will go to hell. They have taken these things more than Me. With all these things, women can't praise Me, women can't worship Me, women can't seek Me with all these things."  Sister Ayo was shocked, and said, "God!"

Then He showed her the churches where people used to worship God, so she could see the kind of clothing the people wear.  Sister Ayo said, "Some of them are just half naked."  The Lord said, "I want you to look, so that you can explain exactly to the women."  She said there are more women than men in hell.  She says, "Most of the women because of their dressing, it will take them to hell.  They think that if they don't dress like this, they will not be attractive to men, and will not find a husband.  Seek ye first!  When you put God first in your life, He knows what you need."

The Lord showed her the ways the brothers dressed in the Church. They are wearing their trousers down low on their hips, exposing their hind cleavage. They are exposing their chests with open shirts, so you can see their chests and the hair on their chests.  She said, "They are not making it to heaven."  It looked as if the anointing was with them when they worshiped.  Some of them were speaking in tongues, some were rolling, some were falling down, some were shouting as if the anointing was there. But the Lord said that this was not His anointing, because He does not enter into such churches.  He said, "I am not in their midst. I do not go into churches like this -- people dressed half naked, exposing their bodies." He said, "Your body is the temple of God. You should live a blameless and holy life."  Then she said, "I realized that churches today that say they felt the power of God; because of the way they dress, Jesus does not enter into those type of churches. The anointing they receive is not from God."

You can read my more complete notes on her testimony at my post, Sister Ayo - a Revelation of Heaven and Hell

Michael Thomas Sambo
A godly brother, whom I have had the privilege of becoming friends with, died three times in two days in 2003. There were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. During that time he experienced heaven and hell.

He said that in hell he saw a member of a Pentecostal church, who vowed not to forgive her pastor. He states:  When we arrived to hell, a young lady saw me afar off and shouted, "Oh, have you come to help me out of this place?" I could not respond to her question. Then she began to tell me the story of her life. She said, "I was a member of a Pentecostal Church. My pastor told me that wearing trousers, as a lady, was not a sin against God. He also said perming or jerry curling my hair, bleaching my skin, using lipsticks, plaiting my hair with attachments, were never sins against God. But the very day I arrived here I discovered that my pastor had deceived me. Can I ever forgive this man? Now it is too late for me. Can I ever leave this place?" While she talked, hell roared and she was swallowed up by its waves and tides. I did not see her again. She said these things she indulged herself in prevented her from truly serving God and have condemned her to hell; Genesis 35:1-5; Jeremiah 4:30; Proverbs 7:10; Romans 1:21-26; 1Peter 3:3-5. Deuteronomy 22:5



I strongly recommend you read my notes on brother Michael's testimony in my post, Michael Thomas Sambo's Revelation of Heaven and Hell.  I have spoken with Michael on a number of occasions and interviewed him on my radio program. I am convinced he is a genuine man of God, who seeks with all his heart to please the Lord.

I would like to add one brief note about relaxing the hair.  This is something that applies only to people with naturally curly hair, like the African hair type, which is typically very strong with naturally tight curls.  There is a treatment that relaxes this type of hair in an unnatural way.

A Word to the Skeptic
If you are skeptical about these testimonies, and you are not sure they are biblical, then please listen to this warning:

Scriptures
First, I ask you to consider the following Scriptures:

"'I have the right to do anything,' you say—but not everything is beneficial. 'I have the right to do anything'—but not everything is constructive. 1 Co 10:23

"So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!" 1 Co 10:12

"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." 1 Co 6:19-20

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear." (1Pe 3:3-6)

"Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness." (1Ti 2:9-10)

"A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God." (Deu 22:5)

"For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God...For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." (1 Thes 4:3-5,7-8)

"May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." (1 Thes 5:23-24)

"Little children, guard yourselves from idols." (1Jo 5:21; cf. 1 Co 10:14)

"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.  If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?" (Pro 24:11-12)

"Whoever says to the guilty, 'You are innocent,' will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them." (Pro 24:24)

"My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof." (Pro 3:11)

Other compelling reasons
Now that we have reviewed a few Scriptures, I ask you to please consider these other reasons:

1. The entire Word of God, not just the New Testament, is our basis for our lives and our beliefs about godly attire and adornment.

2. These testimonies about godly attire and adornment confirm the message of holiness, purity, and modesty that is already written in God’s Word throughout the entire Bible.

3. People are independently receiving the same message about godly attire and adornment from various countries around the world, including Bolivia, Zambia, Nigeria, Sierre Leone, and Ukraine.  

4. Both men and women are receiving this message.  

5. It is not coming from any single church, denomination, or organization with an agenda.  

6. Many of the people getting this message were themselves in violation of it before they got it. 

7. There are many more than just these seven people, who have received this message.  Now there are at least twelve, if you count Rachael Mushala, Zipporah Mushala, Samuel Oghenetega, Ezekiel Moses, and Michael Shigaba.

8. When I consider the number of witnesses involved in all twelve of these testimonies, including the confirmations of their testimonies, I think there may be at least twenty to twenty-four witnesses.  Even if you cut that in half, it is still ten or twelve witnesses. Even if we just look at the testimony of Michael Sambo, who died three times in two days, there were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. Scripture says every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.  But this was so important to the Lord that we not miss this message that He has given us all these witnesses and confirmations, which is much more than Scripture requires. 

9. I have tested the fruit of these messengers to see whether it is good or evil.  In many cases, I’ve spoken to these people myself and or spoken to their pastors, parents, children, or others who have verified their story and/or their character.  

10. We use a Testimony Review Process on this blog that requires readers to listen to the testimonies of these people in their entirety, prayerfully consider the message, search the Scriptures to see if these things are true, test the fruit of the messengers, and discern the things of the spirit, before they leave a critical comment.  Although we have had tens of thousands of page views to these articles, we have not received a critical comment that was able to disprove their message from Scripture, or provide evidence to prove these witnesses are not telling the truth.  Every reader has had the same opportunity we have to check on the sources and do the research. Many of our readers live in the same country where these things occurred.  They would have been able to expose to us if these people are not genuine, or if there was anything in their lives that is ungodly.  Nobody has been able to adequately do so, according to the rules of our review process.

11. The Lord has indicated that he is coming soon, and He is going to do mysterious things before He comes.  Because His time is short, He will use a madman, He will use a prostitute, He will even use a child that doesn't have any teeth in his mouth to testify of His coming before He comes. That is why we must correctly discern the things of the Spirit.

12. We must be careful not to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, which includes neglecting, ignoring, or totally opposing the gift of tongues, prophecy, and interpreting tongues. It includes aggressively opposing the gifts that have or are manifested in different ways. The spectrum of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is very wide.  At one end of the spectrum are those who incorrectly make allegations, based on their prejudices and humanistic views. At the other end are those who judge and condemn others who operate in the gifts, as well as those who directly speak evil of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. Therefore there is the risk of progressing into the sin of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit.  For more on this, please see my post, Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.

That leaves us without any excuse if we reject this message. God still loves us, but His standard for heaven is high and He is not going to lower it for anyone. We are still saved by grace through faith, and everyone who makes heaven makes it by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, not by being perfect. But grace is not a license to sin and do what you know is displeasing to the Lord.  For more on this, please see my post, Seven Reasons to Believe the Seven Divine Revelations.

Putting it All Together
This is the report these people have given of what they experienced.  After listening to these testimonies, and checking on some of the people who gave them, it seems to me at the time of this writing that they are genuine. 

This is a very serious message, which the Lord in His mercy is giving to warn the Church.  And it is not just for the women, it's for the men, too.  We must all dress properly, modestly, and discreetly, not using jewels or expensive cloths to adorn ourselves, but the inward beauty of a meek and gentle spirit.  The Word of God does tell us that, no matter what you believe about these testimonies. Our love and good works should adorn us.

He is calling us to pursue holiness. For without holiness, no man shall see God.  And holiness is not just something inward in our spirit.  God wants our bodies to resemble holiness, too. So there must be an outward holiness.

Lastly, it is important to note that God sees the thoughts and motives of the heart, so most importantly our hearts must be pure. And only He has the "complete picture," or the complete set of data regarding each individual, in order to properly judge your soul. So check your thoughts about apparel and adornment, as well as your motives, and your actions.  Make sure they all line up with the character of Christ, the holiness of God, and the explicit instructions in the Word of God about the Christian dress code.

Any changes you make should be out of total love for Jesus, understanding Who He is and who you are in Him. Therefore, let your attitude be, "Lord, I love You with all I am, and by the power of the Holy Spirit I’ll do whatever it takes to please You."

Is Obedience Optional? Costly Grace Pressing on Toward the Goal
The Cost of Discipleship Obedience by the Spirit The Obedience of Faith
Walking in the Perfect Will of God Righteous Deeds and White Robes Doing What is Right 

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Sister Ayodelle Sawyer - a Revelation of Heaven and Hell

This is a revelation of what Sister Ayodele Sawyerr from Sierra Leone saw in Heaven and Hell.  I have spoken with a godly sister in Christ, who knows sister Ayo, named Claire Andoun Atongo.  She says that sister Ayo is very reserved, and was training the sisters in prayer.  Claire was always together with her praying, and said she is a mature believer in Christ.  Here is her testimony:

When sister Ayo saw the Lord, she said He was shining as a Light.  She said, if you were to take all the energy in the world and put it all together, it would not compare with the Light of Christ.

Time is Up
He told her that the rapture is imminent.  He said, "Time is up!  Time is up!  There is no time left. Soon and very soon the rapture is about to take place."

The State of the Church on Earth
He took her into a heavenly garden, where everything was in order and showed her on a screen the church in Sierre Leone.  He showed her a very large denomination, and said he didn't even recognize it.  He showed her a highly regarded preacher in that denomination, and said He didn't recognize him.  The man was committing sexual immorality with the women in the church.  She said that nobody there in Sierre Leone was preaching holiness, they were mainly preaching prosperity.

And the Lord showed her a woman of God that she had great regard for.  "When she stood to minister the Word of God, you feel you can get the Word of God. He said, 'She is my daughter. But look at the way she appears in front of people. Look at the hair attachments, the short skirts; the code of dressing is wrong to God.  She's preaching the Word, but the dressing, the [hair] attachments...' Then the Lord said, 'Go and tell her I sent you, and that if she does not repent and remove these things she is putting on -- these attachments, this makeup, these things -- she will not make it.'"  She was shocked.



He said, "I AM that I AM that I AM. Before Abraham was, I AM.  I created the heavens and the earth.  This thing that I'm telling you to go and tell them, they will not believe you.  Even your own family will not believe you."  He said, "Many will doubt.  And by the time they realize that I sent you, it should have been late for them." She said she is seeing it, because even her own blood brother ignores her when she tells him her testimony.

Afterward the Lord showed her about two ladies, who were preparing to go to a church service (see 49:00 in video).  The older one was dressed modestly and never put on anything.  She came to the younger one's door and beckoned her to come.  But the younger one just said, "Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait."  And Jesus said to Ayo, "I want you to look." The Lord said to Ayo as she watched this on the screen, "Look!"  All of a sudden the lady came out, and what Ayo saw was that the makeup was so thick that she looked like a Jezebel.  And the blouse she put on was like an empty bra.  You could see the hair attachments.  You could see the way the lady dressed. She just looked like the Queen of the Coast.

She said the Lord was angry.  His countenance changed.  His tone of talking changed in that particular area.  He said, "Look! They have idolized these things. With all those things, they can no longer serve Me. Go and tell them, My daughter, 'If anyone be a woman of God, no matter the kind of congregation.  If she is putting on these things, she will not make it. She will go to hell. They have taken these things more than Me. With all these things, women can't praise Me, women can't worship Me, women can't seek Me with all these things."  Once again, Sister Ayo was shocked, and said, "God!"

She said that when He held her hand, it was a giant holding the hand of an ant, because it was so big.  The sweetness she felt when He held her hand, she forgot about everything in the world. She said that when you see the Lord Jesus, because of His glory and His mighty power, you cannot stand.

Jesus also told her that any church that does not believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, any church that does not believe in the Holy Spirit is going straight to hell.  He said, "Go tell those who are blaspheming, 'Anybody who is blaspheming against the Holy Ghost, pardon is not their own. Pardon is not allowed.'"

Then He showed her the churches where people used to worship God, so she could see the kind of dressing the people put on.  The church is a very big something.  Sister Ayo said, "Some of them are just half naked."  The Lord said, "I want you to look, so that you can explain exactly to the women."  She said there are more women than men in hell.  She says, "Most of the women because of their dressing, it will take them to hell.  They think that if they don't dress like this, they will not be attractive to men, and will not find a husband.  Seek ye first!  When you put God first in your life, He knows what you need."

The Lord showed her the ways the brothers dressed in the Church. They are wearing their trousers down low on their hips, exposing their hind cleavage. They are exposing their chests with open shirts, so you can see their chests and the hair on their chests.  She said, "They are not making it to heaven."  It looked as if the anointing was with them when they worshiped.  Some of them were speaking in tongues, some were rolling, some were falling down, some were shouting as if the anointing was there. But the Lord said that this was not His anointing, because He does not enter into such churches.  He said, "I am not in their midst. I do not go into churches like this -- people dressed half naked, exposing their bodies." He said, "Your body is the temple of God. You should live a blameless and holy life."  Then she said, "I realized that churches today that say they felt the power of God; because of the way they dress, Jesus does not enter into those type of churches. The anointing they receive is not from God."

The Seven Columbian Youths
Then at 1:23:01 – 1:24:07, she testified that in heaven, Jesus said to her, “The Seven Columbian Youths – I, the Lord, showed them heaven and hell.  So go and tell people that – if they do not believe what they are saying – I sent them.” She did not even know about the Seven Columbian youths, because their testimony is on the internet, and she does not access the internet.  In Africa, people typically access the internet through their mobile phones, and she said that all she knows how to do on her phone is make and receive calls. Therefore, this message to her about the Columbian youths is all the more credible, since she was previously ignorant of them.

If you have not read or listened to the testimony of the Seven Columbian youths, I strongly urge you to do so. I have already written about it on a separate post.  The amazing thing was that on the same day I received my first negative comment on that post from a reader, who did not believe what the Columbian youths were saying, I happened to listen to Sister Ayo's testimony.  I did not know that the Lord had said anything to her about the Seven Columbian youths, until I listened to her testimony.  So when I heard that he said that, I was able to communicate that back to the skeptical reader.

Confirmation
She said,  "Lord, please reveal this to someone else to confirm this thing is really happening to me."  She wasn't talking to anyone about this, except her husband, but just keeping notes.  So then one night she spoke to a sister, who told her, "At around 1:00 or 1:30 AM, something woke me up.  A voice spoke to me, and a light filled the whole room.  And I knew something was happening to you.  A fear came over me." And the sister had to leave her house to go to her uncle's house to sleep.

In heaven she saw the buildings and angels, and was admiring the angels.  The Lord asked why she was admiring the angels.  He said, "They want to be like you.  You are made out of Me in My image.  And I have given you a free will."

The Book of Life
She saw the Book of Life near the great big gates of heaven.  She saw the angels recording things in it faster than a computer.  Inside this Book, the Lord showed her that every thought you think on earth, and every thing you do -- whether good or bad -- is recorded in this Book.

The apostle John wrote: "And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."  (Rev 20:12-15)

The Throne of God and the Twenty-four Elders
She was in a great hall in heaven and heard the voices saying, "Holy, holy, holy," with one unique voice.  They were kneeling down.  Then she knelt down and joined them.  She was told to look up and saw three glorious thrones and three golden crowns.  Then she saw the holy Bible, which was too big for her to hold in her hand. The glory was so thick you could not see through it. The Lord pointed, and said, "This is the throne room of My Father. These are the twenty-four elders." The others that she was kneeling with were the twenty-four elders. He said, "Whenever you worship Me, I feel good."

He said, "Go and tell those worshipers [on earth]:  If they think that their voices will carry them to heaven, if they are not living holy, they will not make it to heaven. No matter what their confession. No matter if they do signs and wonders.  No matter the crowds.  If they have these things on that they are dressed with, they will not make it to heaven.  If you are not holy, you will not make it to heaven."

Hell
She was taken by the Lord to hell, where she saw people she had known on earth, including a Muslim man, who refused to accept Jesus Christ during his lifetime.  She also saw a bar in hell, where men were sitting at it drinking. As they were drinking, she saw it was an acid they were drinking.  And their backs were falling off, and the flesh on their cheeks was falling off.  You could see their skeleton underneath.  But then it would come back onto their bodies.

She said she heard a male voice from a distance calling her, "Ayo!  Ayo! Ayo, I did not want you to come to this place!  Go back!  This place is not for you! Go back!  Go and tell your brothers that you accept Jesus as Lord.  Go and tell them! This place is not for you!"

She wondered, "Who is this who knows me, who knows I have two brothers?"  Then she saw her father there in front of her.  The fire brought him up in front of her and she was shocked to see him.  She cried, "Daddy!" He was shouting at her to go back and tell her brothers that they should accept Jesus, and that this place was not for her. She wept to see him there.  He had been fair in complexion and a very handsome man.  But the fire and torture and punishment had totally disfigured him. 

As her father was saying this, Jesus had been silent, just watching her, but then He spoke. He said, "My daughter, your father should not have gone to this place. He had all the opportunities to repent and come to Me, and accept Me as Lord, but he failed to do that."  As the Lord was saying that, she was just crying to see how her father had been tortured and how he looked.  She was crying out to Him, "Lord, have mercy on him!"  But he turned to her and said, "There is no mercy here."

Then the Lord began to explain to her what brought her father into that place.  He said, "One: your father was an altar boy to the Catholic church."  She explained that she came from a strong Catholic background.  The Lord said, "He was seeing all the demonic things and the evil things that the reverend father was doing there. He was compromising.  And secondly, he was a society man. And thirdly he was a drunkard.  He knew there was someone like Me called Jesus.  He had all the opportunities to accept Me, but he never did." As the Lord was speaking, she fell to her knees and grabbed his legs, weeping and crying.  She was shouting, "Lord, have mercy on my father!  Take him out of this place! This place is not meant for him, Lord!" She was about to say, "Lord, You can take him out of this place and put me there."

Then as she was crying and kneeling down before the Lord, there she saw the most extraordinary thing she had ever seen in her life. She saw the crucifixion and how they beat the Lord. She saw the backside of the body of Jesus.  She saw the crown of thorns that were pushed into his head.  The thorns went inside His head. She said you would not be able to stand that pain.  She saw the blood flowing from His wounded left side. She had been weeping for her father, but she started weeping for the Lord.  She saw Him battered and beaten and dislocated.  She felt the pain of the Lord and cried.

Be Holy
Then He took her out of hell and she found herself in a rocky place, and she was exhausted.  She said that up until this time, the Lord was very, very handsome and unique to look at. Then Jesus told her, “I have shown you all these things.  No matter who you are are.  No matter what you preach. Be ye holy as I am holy."  And He repeated, "Be ye holy as I am holy.” She said the Lord turned.  His whole countenance and demeanor changed, and there she saw that God is a God of wrath.  Jesus, who was talking to her, is a God of wrath.  As the anger ignited in Him, she said you would not like to see the Lord when He looks like this. He shouted with anger and red eyes, as He emphasized holiness, “Go and tell the people of the world, ‘Without holiness! Without holiness, no man will see God.’” (see 1:51:30) She said that when He said the words, "Without holiness," it was like an earthquake was taking place right where she was, and like the ground was opened up underneath her and swallowed her up.

My friend, this may seem like a different Jesus than you believe in.  But this is the same Jesus we read about in the Bible.  He said that zeal for His Father's house consumes Him. That's why he cleansed the temple, and He is once again cleansing the temple.  The corruption and sin in the church brings pain to His heart.  And as the apostle Paul wrote to the Hebrews, "Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord." Holiness is not just something we receive positionally from God through Christ, it is something we are commanded to pursue, because we cannot see God without it.

Following these experiences, she said she has had no desire for food, water, or sleep.  And she said that even though she had not been eating, drinking water, or sleeping, she had more energy than those who had been eating, drinking, and sleeping. She assured her listeners that this is not a made up story from her imagination.  She does not have time to go and read these books, or to sit and think up something like this.  The only thing she reads is her Bible, worshiping and praising God.

The Lord emphasized holiness in this revelation.  She said, “We have to strive to walk in holiness...Let us live a holy life -- a life that will please God. Let us live like Job -- like the Lord boasted of him, 'Look at my servant. He is blameless.' Let us be blameless before the Lord, because at any time the rapture could take. I pray we will all make it in the rapture."

Michael Thomas Sambo's Revelation of Heaven and Hell

Michael Thomas Sambo died three times in two days in 2003, and was taken to Heaven and Hell by Jesus himself, where he witnessed many fearful and wonderful things. There were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. His own website states: "Brother Michael Thomas Sambo hails from Bika-Lupwe, Takum Local Government, Taraba State, Nigeria. He is a child of God, humble and zealous. He gave his life to Christ at the age of 13 and has since been walking consistently with Him. He received these divine visitations and revelations while undergoing his course on veterinary medicine in University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. In 2003 when he was given these revelations he was 23 years old. God in His mercy chose to use him to convey this life-changing message to men."

He is a godly brother, whom I have had the privilege of becoming friends with during the two years since I wrote this article. I have always known him to be meek and humble, displaying the fruit of the Spirit. A godly sister in Christ I know, named sister Claire Andoun Atongo, also knows brother Michael.  She says, "He is not quick to speak.  Any time I would ask him a question, he would say, 'Let's pray first.'  And then he would give her the answer.  He was teaching us that we need to be very humble.  He told us, 'Be careful not to let pride enter.' He did not want people to praise him. He loves God so much.  He's very disciplined."   



He saw the Lord Jesus and two angels appear to him and he was taken to heaven.  He says: "I saw also the holiness of heaven. Heaven is too holy to accommodate sinners. Nothing impure and that is defiled can enter into heaven."

The Throne of God
In his book, he states: " While walking on the street of gold along with the angels, in a moment of time, the angels led me to where Jesus was sitting. He was sitting on the throne. No tongue can describe how the throne looked like. The floor of it was built with precious stones. The throne was high and lifted up. The ray of light coming out of the throne was brighter than the sun shining in its full brightness. When I arrived at the throne I bowed down along with the two angels and worshipped the Lord Jesus Christ. I tried to look into the throne but could not because of its brightness."

The True Situation of the Church
The Lord showed him the true situation of the Church on earth.  He saw a large auditorium where people seemed to be praising God in Spirit and in Truth.  But the Lord allowed him to see that they were in chains with irons around their necks, and heavy burdens of sin on their necks. Their worship was not acceptable to the Lord.

Jesus said, "This is the situation of the church which I am supposed to present pure and holy to My Father. My own church has become a place of bondage. A lot of atrocities and wickedness are being done in the church. Ministers of the gospel are committing outright sins and are offering strange fire before My holy mountain, like the sons of Aaron who offered strange fire before Me. It is high time that judgment would begin in the house of the Lord."

Brother Mike saw few saints actually making along the narrow road into heaven, but saw multitudes on their way to hell.  He saw professing Christians being turned away by Jesus at the beautiful gates of heaven, because they had stained their white robes by compromising with the world. He said, "Many pastors are in hell. Many ministers of the gospel are in hell. Atheists and various categories of people are in hell."

Jesus continued, "The church has become a place of pleasure where all sorts of wickedness are being practiced. Ladies seduce men through their immoral dressing. I cannot behold this wickedness going on in the church. Ministers of the gospel are not left out. The church has become a place of seduction. People go from church to hell."

The Lord said, "Believers are living in this life as if they are of the world. But they are not of the world. They are supposed to live separate from the world.

Holiness, Righteousness and Truth
At 00:40 in this video, he speaks about women using makeup, wearing trousers, getting perms in the hair, body piercing, bleaching, etc.  He even saw a woman in hell, who had been a member of a Pentecostal church, who now vowed not to forgive her pastor. He said:

"When we arrived to hell, a young lady saw me afar off and shouted, 'Oh, have you come to help me out of this place?' I could not respond to her question. Then she began to tell me the story of her life. She said, 'I was a member of a Pentecostal Church. My pastor told me that wearing trousers, as a lady, was not a sin against God. He also said perming or jerry curling my hair, bleaching my skin, using lipsticks, plaiting my hair with attachments, were never sins against God. But the very day I arrived here I discovered that my pastor had deceived me. Can I ever forgive this man? Now it is too late for me. Can I ever leave this place?' While she talked, hell roared and she was swallowed up by its waves and tides. I did not see her again. She said these things she indulged herself in prevented her from truly serving God and have condemned her to hell; Genesis 35:1-5; Jeremiah 4:30; Proverbs 7:10; Romans 1:21-26; 1Peter 3:3-5."

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."  Deuteronomy 22:5

"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;  But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works."  1 Timothy 2:9, 10

These may seem to be very radical, counter cultural statements that he makes, yet others also claim the Lord has shown them the same thing, such as Sister Linda Ngaujah from Sierre Leone.  You can watch a clip from her testimony here, in which she gave the following warning from Jesus to women of God:

“And then Jesus said, ‘You are going back to the world.  Tell My people, “Any bishop or wife, any man of God, any signs and wonders man of God, any pastor’s wife, who’s putting on these things [she points to her head]; any prophetess – even if she prophesies to thousands of people – is putting on these things [she points to her head], she will not see My face. Any woman, in and out of the Church, putting on trousers, putting on eyelashes, putting on [unintelligible word as she points to her head], earrings, gold teeth, tattoos, false fingernails, bleaching the skin, bleaching cream, you will not see God.  Tinting of the hair, perming of the hair, stretching of the hair (you want it to look light and nice), you will not see God’s face.”

She said the Lord is exposing things that false men of God have taught – these evil things.  She said, “These things they told you, ‘It’s not necessary. Put it on.  Beautify yourself.’ Jesus is telling you now, ‘They are evil.’”

Another person who has experienced heaven and hell, and gotten this same revelation is Margaret O. Amure, whom I have written about in a separate article. I am simply reporting this information, but it is up to each individual to pray about this and discern for yourself whether or not it is from God. In my opinion, their revelations seem completely authentic and consistent with the Word.

Jesus said to brother Mike, “Tell man that if any man wants to see Me, he must walk in truth, righteousness, and holiness.  That is the only standard for heaven. Tell man I still love him.  Tell man My standard is high.  Tell man mercy is only attainable in the world.”

“Tell man if they should compare the suffering of everybody and put it on an individual, it cannot be compared to what that person would pass through in this fire in 24 hours.”

The Lord said, "I am commissioning you to go back into the world to tell them of My everlasting love for man. Tell man I love him with an everlasting love. Tell him to repent and turn to Me. Preach Christ the crucified. Preach Truth, Righteousness and Holiness; because that is the only way that can bring man to heaven. Preach holiness as if no one has ever preached it in the world."

Please take time to prayerfully watch brother Mike's testimony, and use the Testimony Review Process adopted by this blog, as you decide for yourself whether the Lord has spoken to him.  He is not personally connected with this site. For more information on our position, please see Disclaimers.

I highly recommend reading the article about his Angelic Escape from Terrorist Assassins.  This is a testimony of what happened to him in October 2013.  I also recommend my Interview with Michael Thomas Sambo on March 4, 2015 on the Preparing the Way Radio program. You can also read brother Michael's personal testimony of heaven and hell in his book available here online.

Author's note I encourage you to read Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell, who had a similar message from the Lord about godly attire and adornment.  I also recommend Carrying Your Cross or Cross Dressing?, Seven Reasons to Believe the Seven Divine Revelations, and An Open Mind that Loves the Truth. You can access the Eternal Destinations Main Directory, or my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
