This is, unfortunately, one of the darker things I will post about; but truth is not always warm and fuzzy.
Approximately two years ago, I had my first vision of Hell. It was a vision I shared with the person I consider to be my most trusted friend. This vision of Hell unfolded to us over the same three-day period, simultaneously – just as the vision contained in D&C 76 unfolded jointly to Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon. What my friend saw, caused him to seclude himself for awhile – even from me. What I saw, was utterly horrific and terrifying; I saw and was given-to-know things that I cannot even write. I was told that I “needed to see what I would be up against”. It made me physically sick and evoked fear and incredulity in me that I had never known before then.
About a year ago, I had a vision of the events as they will unfold in Revelation 11. I was not very familiar with this chapter in the Bible at the time. The extent of my knowledge about this chapter is contained in the header found in the LDS quad:
“In the last days, two prophets will be slain in Jerusalem—After 3½ days, they will be resurrected—Christ will reign over all the earth.” (Revelation, chapter 11, BRM commentary)
The entire chapter reads as follows:
“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned
And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” (Revelation, chapter 11)
The vision I had was meant for me, though I’ve been prompted to post it on this blog. I make no claims as a prophetess; the spirit must witness to each and every individual, whether or not this applies to them. What I saw unfolded with these details:
The two witnesses will be numbered among the 144,000 who are ordained by angels to bring those who will come to the Church of the Firstborn, and who are called to be Saviors on Mount Zion. There will be many in this group in addition to these two witnesses mentioned, teaching, witnessing, and prophesying in the Holy City for those forty two months, or one thousand, two hundred and sixty days.
The battle against this group will ensue, and will be fought with Satan’s army. This army will consist partly of humans who have been seduced by the forces of Satan. The others I saw fighting with them, were not human. There were demons and devils, dark translated beings, Ferguns, dark spirits, dark entities who had not received bodies in this eternal round, and beings from other worlds that Satan had employed in this war. The beings I saw were grotesque and terrifying. They were beings that most people on this earth could not imagine, and would not believe exist if I described them; but I know with every fiber of my being they were real.
The fight was not carried out with earthly weapons, but with spiritual weapons.
There will be one in the group of those called by God who will betray the rest. This individual will have been deceived by darkness – just as Judas was when he betrayed the Savior. One female among the 144,000 will be turned over to Satan’s army as a result of this betrayer. They will demand a ransom – two other members of the group. If the ransom is not offered, this female member of the group will be eradicated, and the things that they will threaten to do to her will be horrific and unspeakable.
Two males in the group – the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation 11, will step up and offer themselves in exchange for the female hostage. The offer will be accepted – as these particular two were the prize that Satan wanted in the first place. The exchange will be made – though the original female hostage will be upset – as she knows that two men whom she loves will be handed over to Satan himself. The two witnesses will be translated beings and will have to submit to death – as the translated Savior did, so that the dark army of Satan will be placated and the others will be spared.
During the three days that their bodies lie on the steps of the temple in the Holy City, Satan’s army will defile and desecrate them in ways that I cannot even describe. I saw things that were utterly horrific – as these dark beings raped, tortured, and dishonored the dead torsos of their bodies, after having been beheaded and delimbed. The things they would indulge in as they mocked, ridiculed, and violated the two, would cause most of the world to laugh and celebrate, while the others in the group among the 144,000 would cry and mourn. I saw that the others in the group stayed close by the two – as close as they were allowed, to watch over their bodies – despite the desecration.
After three days, the two witnesses will overcome death – the same way the Savior overcame death, and this battle will be won.
