The Lowest Pit of Hell by Pastor Kim, Yong Doo

The lowest pit of Hell
Hell is a frightening place and I tremble. I have had numerous visitations to hell. The lowest part the hell was endlessly unfolding before me. The lowest pit/depth of the hell was fearfully dark.
From today and forward, our church will be hosting the Summer Revival Conference for fourteen days. As a result, we have had several unexpected incidents. There has been an incident of fist fighting between some members of our church. One particular faithful church deaconess was attacked by prideful and lustful spirits. These spirits worked to delude and victimize another church member. Such incidents had tremendously shocked me.
Between Sunday morning and the evening service, my wife and I usually enjoy a period of rest time. It is a nice sweet rest time for us. But on this particular Sunday, Satan troubled us and took our sweet resting time. Unexpectedly, the title of the Sunday church sermon was, “The Beginning of Spiritual Warfare”. Were these incidents the signal of another spiritual warfare that was beginning? On the following Monday, as soon as I had arrived to my home and began to rest, and even before my physical body was properly recovered, the Lord came to me (Pastor Kim),
“You need to go somewhere now. Today, you will be going to a special place. ”
I replied, “But I am very tired Lord….Can I just rest?” The Lord said, “This is your calling.”
I asked the Lord about the couple incidents that had caused problems on Sunday regarding the soul of the deceived and deluded deaconess who had the lustful and worldly spirits. Two times I had advised this deaconess.. On the second time in advising her, I gently and softly spoke to her about a vision in which God had shown me about her. But obviously, she did not understand nor received my warning. This deaconess had dated a man who possessed a sophisticated style, had good manners and was good looking. This deaconess used to enjoy riding on the back of this man’s motorcycle. But they ended up falling off a cliff. This was not the end. They had become vegetables. They needed help when urinating and to defecate. Moreover, they had become blind. At the end, they eventually died.
I felt sorry and upset about the situation. So I began to importune to the Lord.
“Lord, I have enough prayer requests regarding my own church members! I have so much already! It is very difficult for me to add more members from the outside and to pray for them! They once were my church members, some had even visited our church. I’ve been praying for them but they are probably still slandering and cursing me..”
But the Lord replied, “First, go to this particular part in hell. Then you can say what you desire. When you are sent to this place of hell, I want you to look for those souls (the deaconess and her man). They are in one of the domains in hell where you will not be able to easily find. Today, when you are sent to hell, the evil spirits will not be able to torment or harass you even though they will be able to see and talk to you.” The Lord spoke to me with tenderness. “The people whom I have called for a certain purpose, the people whom I have answered their heartfull prayers, and the people whom I have given spiritual experiences have forgotten the grace I had given them, such people who would rather forsake their certain calling and extinguish the grace. All such people are sitting at their dead churches as though nothing has happened!!! This detonates My wrath!!! They are no longer act like a person with a calling. How can they call themselves a worshipper? They blasphemy Me and the Holy Spirit! I will not forgive the people who think they are saved. They are deluding themselves and saying ‘I am saved!.’ I will not forgive them!!! Today, you will go to the deepest part of hell and you will know!!! Then the Lord disappeared. After the Lord took me to hell, He left. I’ve been to many places in hell, but his particular place was the most miserable place I had ever witnessed.
I have gone to many places in hell, but this was the first time for me to visit the deepest part of hell and I felt like I was vertically dropping for a very long time. This experience has given me another level of shock. The Lord had made my body very light and fast. I was able to jump around space and time. I felt like I had become a flea or a high speed grasshopper. During my visitation in hell, I did not feel tired. I approached toward a particular type of fire in hell.
The devil said, “Hey! You always harass us! Why have you come here?!” I said, “If you ever touch me, I will ask the Lord to throw you into the hell fire!” The devil got scared and backed off.
Next to the blazing hellfire, I saw what looked like a tremendous pile of trash or garbage. The width and depth of the garbage had no end. The size of it was so tremendous that it looked much bigger than a million times the landfill site of South Korea. It was the first time for me to visit this place of hell.
The numerous number of souls!! The people’s body were torn into many pieces. Their body parts were scattered and piled up like trash. It looked like a large mountain! Their parts were used to fuel the blazing hell fire. I cried out to the Lord and pleaded to Him. There were souls who had once faithfully served the Lord’s church with loyalty. These souls shrieked and cried out. I was looking for this particular deaconess and one of the other member. I said, “Where are you deaconess (Name) !!!! Where are you (Name)!!!!”
I had warned a few times to this particular deaconess. I had warned her in a soft and gentle way. But she is now in hell. It is very frightening. After I had witnessed this place in hell, I am now praying such a way. “Lord, please do not send those people to hell (people who had slandered and left the church). It is ok if they do not want to come to the Lord’s church. Please please, Lord! Do not send those people to hell!”
In this particular place in hell, there were so many people who had forsaken their calling. Hades is very realistic to me. I thought to myself, “How can a place such as this exist? Oh My!” The odor of hell is inexpressive. The Israelites were in this particular place in hell. It is the lowest pit of hell.
My dear brethrens, the smell of human dumpster is inexpressible. The pieces of body parts were endlessly piled up. Within the pile of body parts, I had found the head and feet of this particular ex-member of our church. I wandered around for a long time to find the lower parts of the body and the internal organs. I felt like my soul was becoming insane. The screams and shrieks of souls pierced my ears. The scattered body parts were talking to me.
In this place, the internal organs were all scattered. The human heads had their skulls cracked opened with their brains gushed out. Their right eyes were pounded to the back of their heads and the left eyes were hanging out of their sockets. I saw buttucks with dangling legs, an arm crawling around, and some of heads had their own internal organs wrapped around their heads. Whenever I had witnessed the body parts, I naturally had knowledge and knew how they died. I knew what kind of sickness they had suffered and what date and time they had died. I knew which church they had attended. I knew if they were deaconess, deacon, elders and/or pastors. I was given knowledge of the sins they had committed. The evil spirits used a long shovel to scoop up the body parts throwing them into the blazing hell fire. They said, “You filthy human!!” Some body parts were as small as only a toe, a knee and/or a face or chest. But all these body parts were alive. I had witnessed such a scene for five long hours.
“Pastor! I did not know! I did not know that the sin of disobedience and pride could lead me to this type of consequence and ending up here! How is it sin when I had like or loved someone? Why didn’t you do something!! Why had you not severely rebuked me and perhaps even beaten me to stop me!!! Look at me now!!! What should I do now?”
In this particular domain of hell, there was an overflowing of believers who had forsaken their families, were lustful, prideful, and self-indulgent. They were drunks, pastors, elders, and many more people with callings and positions who had forsaken their duties. There were many people who had possessed many holy spiritual gifts. In fact, there were so many people that I had known before. They were people who were once close to me.
This particular deacon’s head itself continuously cried out to me. “Pastor!! I did not know!!!”
Her body and the body of the man whom she had committed adultery with stuck together. Their bodies were compressed together. The iron spear had pierced their bodies together. So many people were in this condition. They were the ones who had committed the sin of adultery.
The deaconess’ head continuously cried out to me and said, “Why didn’t you rebuked me!!! Why didn’t you beat me up!!!!”
So many christians have committed the sin of adultery. So many christians with holy spiritual gifts have corrupted themselves. I thought I was going to faint. As I loudly screamed, the visitation ended.
After this experience, the Lord said, “You are going to preach about salvation based on this scripture, ‘Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.’ Right?”
I said, “How did you know?” “Is there anything that I do not know?”
On earthly time, the experience to hell lasted about five hours. My wife was surprised and said, “What happened? Why did you wake up so early? Please rest little bit more!”
I am not permitted to reveal the names of the people whom I saw in hell even to my wife… I will have to live the rest of my whole life with this knowledge to myself. I am living my daily life with reverential fear and trembling. More than anyone, I am realistically realizing the word of the Lord that said, “Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.”
True repentance will bring forth fruits. If a saved person commits the sin of adultery, he/she will not enter into heaven. Why? This person is a liar and adulterer. These type of people sins habitually, and they also habitually repent for the same sin. They repeat the cycle. This is a fearful thing. They need to be determined to cut off their sins! There are sins that we sin due to our weakness but I am talking about the sins that you know that you need to cut off but have not yet determined to do so.
If you were a Christian for a longer period than others, the Lord will deal with you more fearfully. “Romans 10:9-10 (NLT) 9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
The Lord said this verse is kindergarten level teaching. If you have no fear of God and no trembling, you are under a frightening curse! The outer appearance of salvation looks easy, but the content of salvation is difficult. It is complicatedly intertwined.
Observe the books of Galatians and Corinthians. You will see the list of sins that the Lord has given and those who commit such sins will not enter into the kingdom of God. When I read those verses, I am so fearful. Why? Because I first observe myself and I apply it to myself. For this reason, each time I pray, I pray like never before. I pray to God with all my being. I pray to God to kill my flesh! But many people think easily of salvation. They act recklessly. They must not do so. The fear of the Lord and trembling is your lifeline, and you need to work out your salvation.
In a minefield, the mines are all hidden. You would not be able to see them. If you even make a one mistake in your step, you will blow up. In order to safely cross the minefield, you need to have a mine detector. With the help of an expert in mine detecting with a mine detecting device, you will need to carefully move one step at a time. This is the content of our salvation. Let us yield, submit, to each other with one mind and this is what saved people must do.
How will you meet the Lord in a one hour church service? But, just because you suddenly start praying for five hours does not mean you will meet the Lord. I have accumulated my prayers ever since I was teenager. Therefore, now, I am in this position. Whenever I hold abroad fire revival conferences, I make them pray and do long hours of church services. Then God will move to work greatly. Most Korean churches are satisfied with one hour church services. These churches preach something that are not related to what the Lord desires! God desires to do things within the churches, but the churches do not know what the Lord desires! The Holy Spirit provides His “energy” to the churches and to individual Christians. When we pray and meditate the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will continuously provide His “energy” to us.
Let us be alert and awaken! The church with many or few people does not mean a thing. The importance of the church is to preach the spiritual message, and with the spiritual message the people need to repent.
The Lord said to me, “If you receive all that I have given to you and repent, you will gain the overflowing work of the Holy Spirit. Many souls will be restored”.
God has shown me a list of names who are heading towards hell yet they are still alive on the earth. These christians are attending church services and living a faith life of their own. But their names are on the list of hell.
The evil spirits ridiculed and said, “Hahahaha! These “christians” living their lives not knowing that they are heading to hell! Good, good, good, good! Constantly attack these christians, send more evil spirits! Satan is continuously sending his subordinates with special missions. They are making christians drink, smoke, and to commit all kinds of wicked acts. So many christians have no relation or ideal to the content of salvation.
Satan has commanded, “Let them continuously watch TV. Let them continuously be on the computers and put pornography in their view. Once they start watching porn, make them crazy about it!”
Even the series of drama, and other programs have very strong addiction.
You do not know all the spirits hiding within you. If the spirits within you works together with Satan, no one knows how or what you will do. Therefore, we need to be continuously alert and awaken! It is alright to take care of your bodies and dress nicely. But do it properly without going over the line. If these things are excessively done, you will also go to hell. Be awaken and alert with the heart of repentance! When you praise, pray, worship, attend church service and give offerings, you need to do it with all your life and whole being. The days of the gentile’s harvesting or threshing is almost near the end. But no one knows if the seven years of tribulation will come next, or if the days of collaboration between the Israelites and gentiles will come first. Nobody knows. No one has the ability to foretell the future. Our job is to repent before the Lord, praying with all our hearts, and to receive the power of the Holy Spirit and harvest souls. These people will be preciously used in the last days.

God is not one sided

I do not know how it was before but in today's time, most of the church is taught only the blessings of God without the discipline. They are not taught the ways of God. God is not one sided. The gospel has four sides, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The angel in Ezekiel had four faces.

We know God is Love. But the bible says God is also a very jealous God and we do not want to rouse that jealousy.

When constructing a building, we need to know how to build a foundation. Then we need to know how to build the frame, pipes, walls, roofing and etc. There is a lot of hard work and time that is involved. If we are a builder and we are only concerned of the surface beauty then we may never be able to start and finish the building. Before we can decide on the beautiful paint, pictures, furnitures, etc we need to have spent the energy and time building the fundamentals of the house. We cannot just sit all day and day dream about how the house will look with the furniture that we have chosen. And we cannot get jealous and envious because someone else had spent the time to do it the right way and had finished their houses.

To understand the blessings of God, we must also understand the discipline or judgments of God. If we do not know His ways, we will never get to the next stage or level.

Hosea 4:6 (NLT) My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me.
Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests.
Since you have forgotten the laws of your God, I will forget to bless your children.

The discipline or judgments of God may be the start of our foundation to build upon a solid Rock. His discipline will teach us submission, humility, and obedience. It prevents us from trying to build our own homes using straw. But sadly many are so stubborn to do it their own way. He is the great architect but yet many want to be their own bosses.

We can walk this life thinking we have walked pleasing Him because we have experienced His power but still may not have pleased Him. As we walk, are we pleasing Him or are we trying to make Him do our bidding?

1 Corinthians 10:1-5 "I don’t want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, about our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. All of them were guided by a cloud that moved ahead of them, and all of them walked through the sea on dry ground. In the cloud and in the sea, all of them were baptized as followers of Moses. All of them ate the same spiritual food, and all of them drank the same spiritual water. For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with them, and that rock was Christ. Yet God was not pleased with most of them, and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.”

We must learn from past mistakes so we do not make the same mistake again.

His own people rejected HIM, would you?

(‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭10-11‬ NLT) He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. 11 He came to his own people, and even they rejected him.

When Jesus showed up in human form, we would assume everyone especially His own people would openly and warmly welcome Him. After all, isn't this what most Christians would say today? If we can see Him today, we would obey, submit, surrender, and do as He would tell us?

But strangely, when He had come to His own people, they had Rejected Him. How could this be? We can understand the world not recognizing Him, but His own people?

If we meet Him today, would we recognize Him? Or would we reject Him. Of course, we all would say we would not reject Him. But how do we know?

Today, Jesus comes to us by His Spirit. The Holy Spirit comes to us in many ways. HE may speak to us through the bible, church, pastors, preaching, other brethren, other authorities, His Will, a prophecy, a spiritual gift, directly and other authorities.

If HE comes to us through a spiritual gift and we reject that, are we rejecting Him? If we read a word or commandment from the bible and we reject and do not live accordingly, are we rejecting in Him? If we listen to a sermon and we are convicted and know what to do is right but we don't do, is this considered rejecting Him? If He wants us to go somewhere, do something, or say something and we don't, are we rejecting Him?

In order not to make the same mistake as our previous ancestors, we must always submit and obey to the King. This means we must be constantly moving forward from glory to glory, dying to ourselves, getting cleansed of our hearts, always seeking His Will, forgiving, giving grace, loving, submitting to all His authorities, quickly obeying, quickly repenting, overcoming,  enduring, persevering, living a life of sacrifice, learning and knowing Him more each day, passing our tests, trials, and tribulations, praying, reading, worshipping, etc.

We must look to the cross and know what it really means to follow Him. Otherwise, most are living a life of formality with God. We can possess spiritual gifts, have experienced supernatural events, having read and been a Christian a long time and still be in formality (religious). Formality is not following God with a full surrendered heart. Do not deceive yourselves.

May we come to the fullness of our God to know Him and the resurrected Life in Him. May we truly be His people and HE our God. May we never end up rejecting our King in any way or manner. Lord, grant us eyes to see and ears to hear.

Proper order

Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. (Daniel 10:12 NLT)
Daniel prayed for understanding and humility and as a result he experienced an angel sent from heaven. Many desire the spiritual experiences but do not have the understanding nor humility to receive them. Proper order of our growth will result in everything. We must learn to be patient and cleansed to receive further and higher instructions. The proper order shows where our heart is whether we are seeking HIS Will or our will.

A man who prays with his head covered is dishonored?

1 Corinthians 11:3-5(AMP) But I want you to know and realize that Christ is the Head of every man, the head of a woman is her husband, and the Head of Christ is God. Any man who prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, and comforts) with his head covered dishonors his Head (Christ). And any woman who [publicly] prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, or comforts) when she is bareheaded dishonors her head (her husband); it is the same as [if her head were] shaved.

Most Christians do not know about spiritual authority or the order of God. We must have proper order for the Spirit and His power to operate and manifest in our lives. What the current church experiences is no different than what the church experienced during Apostle Paul's days. Man has the same sin nature and we tend to make the same mistake over and over again.  

Most of the church is out of order because the homes are out of order. The problems of the Corinthian church is very similar to what the western church is facing. Whether the homes of the congregation or the homes of the pastors, proper spiritual order must be established so that the church can move forward. 

The context of 1 Corinthians chapter 11, verses 3-5, refers to spiritual authority in the household. We must realize during biblical times, they refer to females as either virgins, women, or widows. In those days, unlike today in modern time, most of the women were married. When we see the term "women" used, they are in most part referring to married wives. In the bible, when it comes to spiritual authority and women, the bible is not preventing the women from having spiritual authority nor is the bible preventing them from preaching or teaching. The bible is referring to the disobedient wives whose houses are out of order. Today, many households are out of order as the wives are in control under some degree of the Jezebel spirit. This is not to blame the wives nor to pinpoint and judge anyone. This is to reveal the problem so that we may align ourselves with the Holy Spirit in proper order so that HIS power and love may flow through the families. When His power and love flows, there will be evidence and manifestion of spiritual and financial blessings. Today, many Christians can profess a lot of slogans or scripture verses but when we look at the core of their lives, they are in choas, war, sickness, poverty, and confusion. What they profess does not manifest into the physical realm. 

Apostle Paul is reminding the Corinthian church of the proper order that the head of every man is Christ and the head of every women is their husbands. Depending on the translation, most English translation uses the words the "women" and "men" rather than the proper context of wives and husbands. The Head of Christ is God. Christ and God are not separated but they are One. Therefore, in the context of women and men, the reference is of one which is husband and wives. If the Head of Christ is God, is Christ any lessor than God? No, they are equal in everything. But for proper spiritual order, Christ submitted to God.

Phil 2:5-7 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges, he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

Let us look at verse 4 "Any man who prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, and comforts) with his head covered dishonors his Head (Christ)."

Any man who prays or prophesis with his head covered dishonors His Head, Christ. Does this mean if he wears a hat? The context of covering or covered is about spiritual authority. In his household, if the wife is the spiritual authority, then the man or husband who ministers is out of order and thus dishonors the House of God. Even if the husband is not in ministry but whose ministry is his family is out of order. When we are out of order, we will encounter a block in our lives. We become stuck spiritually and physically unable to capitalize on our blessings. In households where the wives dominate with a Jezebel spirit, the husbands are living in la la land. The husbands may live in fear of stirring up their wives thus they give in to all their demands. The husbands live a complacent passive life. Such people must discern their lives and realize nothing is working in their lives because they are out of order. 

Although, the bible commands the wives to submit to their husbands, this does not mean the wives are secondary citizens or of any lower class. In fact, the wives are co workers and co heirs in the inheritance of salvation. The wives play a very important role to the husbands. The wives are our helper, they are our encouragers, they are motivators, and so on. The wive are there to give us counsel, assistance, guidance, and so on and the husband is the final authority. Just like in the corporate world or the military, there must be proper order for the organizations to function. In the military, the people in themselves are equal citizens when not in uniform but in uniform, they have rank and order so that they may function properly. 

In verse 5, "And any woman who [publicly] prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, or comforts) when she is bareheaded dishonors her head (her husband); it is the same as [if her head were] shaved." 

If the household is out of order and if the wife is dominating the household through the Jezebel spirit, and if she attempt to minister, she is considered bareheaded and dishonors her head or husband. Spiritually, it is a very shameful act as if she was literally bareheaded. 

Whether you are wives or husbands, many of you have told God that you would die for HIM or would do anything for HIM. If that was the case, then first learn to submit to God by submitting to your husbands. What do I mean by submit? To submit is to respect, honor, encourage, and serve them. Wives need to stop looking down on their heads (husbands). When it comes to the subject of Jesus, you do not have to submit if he tells you to stop going to church or if he tells you to stop reading the bible or to pray. You do not have to submit to these but in all trival and household issues, you should submit to your husbands. Your submission with a pure heart will change them.

1 Peter 3:1-2 (AMPIn like manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives, When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your [a]reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him—to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].
