Julie: “Recently I heard some accounts of people having near-death experiences where they described hell. I understand that there are probably all levels of dimensions and spiritual things going on that we can’t really fathom, and there could very likely be a hell dimension. However, the thought that this is an eternal condition for these souls has really disturbed me. I guess I’m looking for some reassurance that even if this exists, it is not eternal and, in the end, everything returns to God. Is something like this really not eternal?”
The Voice for Love: “Precious, most holy One, thank you indeed for your question and for your willingness to come and to ask it. We are so delighted to be with you in this moment, and indeed in every moment. Be still a moment and feel your own breath. Feel the air moving in and out of your lungs and mouth and nose. This is as close as the knowing and knowledge you are asking for is. It is ever-present with you.
“This thing called ‘hell’ that you are asking about is a deep cluster of intense thoughts not yet acknowledged in the light of your very own capability and ability to love. Indeed, your brother Jesus reminds you that ‘Nothing can separate you from the love of God – not height, nor depth, nor any other creature.’ This alone is reassurance in every time of trouble of thought or future trouble or fear.
“NOTHING can separate you from the love of God. You ARE the love of God, my precious friend. You can no more be separated from yourself than for light to be separated from illumination. Light illuminates. Love loves. Truth is true. There are many in your world who remind you of the untruth of eternal damnation. Damnation, to remain eternal, must be true and real. It is not. Only what is real and true remains eternal.
“Damnation is simply the momentary forgetting that love is always being extended. That is all. The visual fears and vivid accounts people have regarding this place of eternal damnation are but an alarm clock set to remind all to wake up from the dream of such things. Precious one, would I create my precious children if there was any way they could be lost to Me? Ever? Certainly not. A creation remains as its Creator.
“As you go about your day today, you will see and hear many reminders that the love, yes, even the adoration and completeness of God, is ever-present in your day. When you hear the laughter of a child, the bark of a dog, see the sunshine reflecting in last night’s rain puddle, you will be reminded of the ever-present love of God.
“You remain love forever more. The temporary fog of the thought of eternal damnation is but the ding-ding of an alarm clock. Just turn it off and remember in great joy: I am free. I am love. I love. God loves me.
“Dear one, thank you again for your innate willingness to come without fear to the throne of grace and truth to be reminded of your loveliness.
“Amen and Selah.”
