Sid: Bill Wiese was chosen by God to spend 23 minutes in Hell as a non-believer and report to the world of its reality. He also was told about when Jesus would return. Next on this edition of It’s Supernatural.
Can ancient secrets of the supernatural be rediscovered? Do angels exist? Is there life after death? Are healing miracles real? Can you get supernatural help from another dimension? Has the future been written in advance? Sid Roth has spent 30 years researching the strange world of the supernatural. Join Sid on this edition of It’s Supernatural.
Sid: Hello. Sid Roth. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. Do you believe in a literal Hell? I mean, one where there’s suffering and sulfur and torment, and demons with pitchforks. Well a survey was done in America by Barnum and he found that two-thirds of the people do not believe in Hell with suffering. And as a matter of fact, it’s not a popular subject. When was the last time you went to a house of worship and they spoke about Hell? Well God had to take things into His own hands and He showed a man that has impeccable character, a man that has never been into drugs or alcohol, that has a good marriage, a solid citizen. I even looked at his references and the former retired chief of police that he’s known for decades gave him a character witness. I mean, if I was in Hollywood and casting someone to see Hell, and come back and report on it this is the man I would have picked. We went out on the streets to find out people believe in a Hell where there’s suffering and sulfur, and demons. You’ll be amazed at what we found out.
Man 1: No, I don’t believe there’s a Hell. You know, God loves everybody, so He wants everybody to live up with Him in Heaven.
Woman 1: Hell? Sometimes I think Hell is on Earth with all the random acts of violence and the wars, and the terrorism that goes on. I think Hell is here.
Man 2: No, I don’t believe there’s a Hell at all. I think that’s something that the church made up to control and manipulate people. Everyone’s going to go to Heaven because God’s a good God who loves us all. As long as we live a good life and are good people, we’re all going to get to Heaven.
Woman 2: Yeah, I believe there’s a Hell. I believe it’s a place where people go if they don’t ask God to forgive them of their sins.
Sid: Hello. Sid Roth here with Bill and Annette Wiese. And Bill, before you had, and get this, he had a literal guided tour of Hell. Before that happened, what did you think about Hell?
Bill: Well Sid, I never really thought about Hell. I had been a Christian for 40 years. This happened 12 years ago. But I never really studied the topic. I had no interest in it. My wife and I never see dark movies or entertain anything evil like that. But I knew it was fiery and that was as much as I knew. So I’ve learned a lot since then.
Sid: Okay. I’m going to take you to that date, November 23rd, 1998, and you go to bed, you get up, at what time, three in the morning?
Bill: I got up at three o’clock just to get a glass of water.
Sid: How did you know it was three?
Bill: I looked at the clock.
Sid: Okay. You get the glass of water. What happened to you?
Bill: Suddenly, Sid, I found myself, I was being pulled out of my body, like this was an out-of-body experience, and I had never had one before. But I was pulled out of my body and I found myself falling through the air and tumbling down this long tunnel. And I entered into this open cavern area and hit this stone floor, and I found myself in a prison cell with rough hue stonewalls and bars. I was actually in a prison, but it looked like a dungeon, filthy, stinking, smoke-filled prison.
Sid: Did you realize where you were?
Bill: I was fully awake and cognizant. I was not dreaming.
Sid: No, I understand. But did you know you were in Hell?
Bill: Yes. The heat was far beyond the ability to sustain life, so I knew immediately I was in Hell. And there were demonic creatures in this cell with me. They were pacing like a caged animal, real ferocious, vicious demeanor, like no creature I had ever seen.
Sid: Before this, were you one prone to visions and things like this?
Bill: No. I’ve never had a vision before. And like I said, I was fully awake and cognizant. I was actually in this place, Sid. And to see these demons pacing in the cell. They had extreme hatred for God and then they directed that hatred towards me. I wondered why. What have I done to them? But the one picked me up, threw me into the wall, tremendous strength in these demons.
Sid: Wait a second now. You’re a Christian.
Sid: You’re not supposed to be in Hell. Didn’t you remind them? I would have.
Bill: Well Sid, the only way a Christian could see Hell is in a vision. This was a vision, and God hid it from my mind that I was a Christian. He blocked it from me. There’s many scriptures I could give you for that. But the purpose was so I could experience what an unsaved person would experience in Hell.
Sid: Everything happening all around you so fast was going on. When you came up with your first question to yourself, what was it?
Bill: Well why am I here? Why am I here? How did I get here? And I didn’t understand any of this. Everything was explained on the way back, but at this moment, all I was experiencing was the pain and the torment that these demons were inflicting.
Sid: You actually could feel this?
Bill: Yes, I could feel it. Now I understood that most of the feeling was being blocked and God explained on the way back that He hid, blocked most of the pain, but He did allow me to feel some of the pain so I could relay to people it’s not metaphorical or allegorical. It’s real literal pain you’re going to feel in Hell. The amount I felt was enough.
Sid: What was the worst experience you had on this guided tour of Hell?
Bill: Knowing that I’ll never get out, the hopelessness. You see, that’s what God wanted me to experience what they feel there. See, if I was there as a Christian, which I was, but He hid it from me, I would know I’m getting out of here. Thank God, I’m getting out of here. I don’t have to stay here. But as an unsaved person, I understood I’ll never get out. Ten million years will go by, I’m still there. And that’s the worse part, knowing there’s no one going to come rescue you. There’s no cavalry coming over the hill, there’s no angels to protect you. You are lost and in torment, and hopeless forever. That was the worse part.
Sid: Tell me some of the things you saw with your eyes in Hell.
Bill: I saw these demons, reptilish in appearance, bumps and scales all over their body, huge jaws, sunken eyes, claws about a foot long. These particular two were about 12 or 13 feet tall. That sounds like an exaggeration, but there’s even scripture for that. But they tormented me. They dug their claws in my chest and just tore the flesh open. I couldn’t believe I was still alive through this. The flesh is hung like ribbons. I noticed there was no water or blood.
Sid: But you see, there was a reason that the Messiah took him on a guided tour of Hell. And when you find out this reason, I believe it’s going to change your life forever. Don’t go away. We’ll be right back.
