CLIMBING INTO ETERNITY
Excerpt from my Book: My Descent In Hell and Flight To Heaven: paragraph excerpts from pages ‘225,226,227’.
INSTEAD OF BEING ATTACKED AND mauled by the devil and his demons, I was being rescued by a brilliant, white bright Light.
I could hear myself crying as I was saying, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.
Then I became still as I clearly heard His voice say, I AM the Light. It was beautiful. Oh, it was so beautiful. I could hear the sound of running water. It rang out in song. I could not see the water. I did not have to. The melodious sound that was quenching my soul was already enough. I cried out; I have been saved. Jesus, You saved me. You saved me. Thank You, Jesus, thank You. Once again, I fell down with my whole being in complete relief, surrender, and thankfulness.
Jesus had saved me. He saved me out of hell!
It felt as if the beautiful running water of the Light was consuming my whole being. Even though the Light was so brilliantly white, it did not burn me. Instead, it gently embraced me with a gentle, pure, and enduring love. I could hear myself sobbing in grateful awe. I was still only soul and spirit, so I was not physically shedding tears, but my whole being gently sobbed with emotion. Then something tender and caressing stilled my soul. It was as if the whole porthole of this Light stilled in expectation.
Jesus’ voice rang out, Michele, I love you with an everlasting love. Your sins have been forgiven.
I could not see Jesus, but I knew He was there. I quietly responded with all that was in me, Thank You, Jesus! Thank You, my Lord!
I heard myself gurgling out in unison with the running water. As I was gurgling and twirling around, I saw a brilliant, dancing, white flame of light. I stilled and watched in wonder. This flame was even brighter and whiter and more condensed than the porthole of light itself. It was so pure, so holy, and so beautiful that I gasped in total awe. The flame descended in dancing movement until it stood in front of me. Then a massive, invisible, yet visible hand picked it up and placed it inside me, just as a surgeon places a pacemaker inside a person’s body.
As this brilliant flame was placed inside me, my joy was now joined with an inner peace beyond any description. I once again raised my whole being up and cried out, “Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Hallelujah!”
I had never said this before, but I knew from that moment on it was my newfound language I would never, ever, stop saying. Jesus had saved me. He had rescued my soul. Death and hell were no longer going to consume me. I was no longer going to spend eternity in the pit of self-destruction. I had reason to shout, Glory, Hallelujah!

LET US DISCUSS:
The excerpt from my book above tells of how Lord Jesus came and rescued me from out of hell. This is a mighty magnificent glorious miracle. Not only was I, my spirit and soul being, rescued from eternal damnation; I then witnessed a brilliant white, dancing flame placed in my spirit-soul being before I was put back into my own body. I now know that this dancing flame to be the Holy Spirit who is now my intimate best friend. I had been on my way to the place of hellish fiery never-ending evil torture that had been assigned to me, due to my own un-forgiving, destructive stubborn and rebellious choices I had made. Instead, Jesus came down and forgave me and placed His Holy Spirit in me, a truly mind-blowing yet real splendorous miracle indeed.
I praise Lord Jesus for His miracle of rescuing me. Many people wince when they hear a person say, “I am a born again, spirit-filled believer of Christ Jesus.” The truth is, there is no other way to explain what being a true Christian is. We have been saved and forgiven by Jesus, the Son of the Living God who has also given us His gift of the Holy Spirit, to come and live in us. It is exactly this that brings accuracy to what Paul the apostle writes to the Corinthians when he states that anyone who is in Christ Jesus is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; and that the old things have passed away.
This is exactly what I had experienced above. All I had known was rejection, hurt, bitterness, shame, un-forgiveness, and desired destruction. This became my identity which I had embraced and even reveled in and the harsh destructive condemning controlling evil hate I was known for. This was how my embraced choices and actions had caused my psyche [my soul-mind, emotions, free-will, and inner-man] to become and operate from. This evil darkness was the norm to me, anything and everything else I viewed as abnormal and detestable. I saw any form of goodness or kindness or joy or laughter or love as a false pretense with a hidden agenda. I despised people operating with these qualities and I would reject them from my sphere of life. I did not see my psyche of evil as being a threat, rather as a strength and my protection for the desired vengeance.
The split-second Jesus had come down and rescued and saved me and placed the pure brilliant dancing flame in me, I literally felt a massive psyche [if I can say it like this] rebirth within me. Immediately the heaviness of destructive doom [I had lived with and operated from, all my years] was lifted off me. I no longer felt inwardly intertwined, with the dark evil that was literally taking place all around me, as I was being lifted out of hell. I, my all, had instantaneously embraced and become part of, kindred too, this new world of the Light and life. I believe this was because of being forgiven and then followed with the dancing flame being put into me. My control center of operations, from deep-deep within me, had been completely changed. As this bitter doomed heaviness of hurt and rejection and hopelessness were completely consumed up by Jesus, they were replaced by this newfound life essence of the immense love which I had never ever experienced or ever operated with before.
My inner-being and heart, were completely changed. The old [how of me], no longer seemed to exist? I was still [if I can say, the who] of me for sure, but my view and perception and understanding and outlook of life was not the same at all. I had literally changed in the split of a second. Gone was the dark evilness of me and it was the embracing light desiring life. Christ Jesus had instantaneously become my focal point; the center from which I operated. Immediately His character of forgiveness and joy and peace and how He unconditionally loved me had saturated my whole being [my spirit&soul&body]. I had no doubt of His acceptance of me at all. Even as I was, I was truly and completely loved by Him. So much so that Jesus put His dancing flame [the Holy Spirit] in me. It is this that caused a fountain of thanksgiving and praise full of joy with an expectation of good to burst forth from within me. Love and belonging and faith in GOD had been instantaneously birthed in me. Even my expressive language had changed from judgmental cursing to spontaneously singing. That which had never left my lips before because I had never heard or was hardened to these words before became my cry.
The old Michele was gone, consumed by the living light of love. A new-born again, Spirit-filled creature, a new Michele, rose up, indeed.
And this happens to every single one of us when we acknowledge and accept Jesus. God’s desire is that all should come to Him.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)
17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
Ephesians 1:13-14 (NIV)
