Bernada Fernandez's Fake
The following Christian NDE testimony appears on
several websites and was submitted to me for inclusion to
this forum. While I was reading it, it became obvious to
me that it was a fake. It was written by someone whose only
afterlife knowledge comes from the
Book of Revelation.
going to include it here, but I thought this would be a
good opportunity for people too see how I evaluate hellfire-and-brimstone
testimonies posing as real NDE testimonies. I use a test
that Jesus himself used and is described in the gospels.
the Bible states it is important to "test" or
evaluate the "spirits" because not all spirits
come from heavenly realms. So, what is the test? When the
religious leaders incorrectly evaluated Jesus as performing
miracles by Beelzebub, Jesus taught them that a tree is
judged by its fruit. Bad trees cannot produce good fruit.
Nor can good trees produce bad fruit. The fruit Jesus was
talking about is the fruit of the Spirit of God which is
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. In essence, Jesus was telling
his accusers that Satan cannot produce these miracles of
goodness that Jesus was performing. So because Jesus can
do and say these things in accordance with love, joy, peace,
etc.., this means his testimony is true and of God.
whenever I evaluate someone's NDE testimony about Jesus,
I determine whether the testimony is true or false. If an
NDE testimony describes Jesus as a wrathful King throwing
people headlong into the fiery pit, what kind of fruit is
this? Certainly not good fruit. This would be an invalid
image of Jesus because it doesn't fit with the fruit of
the Spirit of love, joy, peace, etc.. If Jesus is seen demanding
that people worship him and condemning those who don't,
what kind of fruit is this? Certainly not good. This also
would be an invalid image of Jesus. So, with this in mind,
I present to you a fake NDE created for the sole purpose
of instilling fear into people of a false god of wrath,
jealousy, and ego. At various incidences throughout this
testimony, I comment on some of the material.
This is the testimony of my first
journey. As I was not feeling well that morning, my husband
refused to leave me on my own and go to work. I told him
that I was not alone. After he left, I felt that I was dying.
So I decided to phone some of my friends, and my mother-in-law.
My mother-in-law answered: "Bernada, God will bless you
today, do not be afraid". The same answer came from another
brother in Christ that I phoned, but he added: "Bernada
get up from your bed and praise the Lord, cry to Him and
glorify Him". So, in spite of my lack of strength I cried
to the Lord saying: "Lord You are my strength, come and
help me". I tried to stand up, but my strength left me.
My voice could no longer be heard but in my soul I was crying
to the Lord to help me since I was dying.
my room was lit up of a light which looked like a fire.
Immediately my fear vanished and I saw angels descending
and walking in my room. I could hear them clearly speaking
to each other. Suddenly appeared a marvelous being, more
marvelous than angels. He was dressed in White with a golden
sash. On His chest was written in gold: "FAITHFUL AND TRUE".
His face was showing gentleness and Love. Jesus the CHRIST
was in front of me, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
May His name be blessed!
approached me, touched my head and told me: "I am Jesus
who died for you. Look at these marks in my hands, they
are still there for you. I came down from my throne of glory
to speak to you; there are many things in your life to put
right. You are lazy and quick-tempered. Moreover, I do not
want 25% Christian nor 95%, but 100%. If you want to go
to heaven, you have to be holy as I myself am holy; I came
to take you for a journey".
"Jesus" rudely judges this woman to be "lazy."
love is not rude
nor does love keeps a record of wrongs.
This "Jesus" shows partiality to a
person's religion which is something he didn't
do in the gospels nor in real NDEs. The fruits
of this "Jesus" are not fruit of the
Holy Spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
I asked Him: "Lord is it a missionary journey?"
He answered "No". Then He took me by my hands and lifted
me up, and talked to me with simplicity and Love. He brought
me as far as my windows, He looked at the city of New York
and I saw sadness on His face. He wept and said: "My Word
is well preached, but people do not listen. The sin of this
city has reached my father".
city was full of homosexuals; among them were Politicians.
The Lord told me: "It's another Sodom, but I am alive
and the judgments of my father will soon fall on this city.
Then I knelt before the Lord while crying and He told me: "Do
not be afraid. When judgment falls on this world, my Church
will no longer be on Earth".
To show you how dangerous bigotry against homosexuals
is, Jerry Falwell blamed the 9/11 terrorist
attack on gays and lesbians (among other people).
You remember the outcry that resulted from that
accusastion. But this testimony also throws
in politicians, I suppose because the writer
believes they are the worse kind. Who knows?
But the fact is that the real Jesus didn't condemn
homosexuals, adulterers, prostitutes, divorcees,
or any so-called "sexual deviants" in the gospels
which means Fernandez's testimony is questionable.
To believe that Jesus has people tortured for
preferring to have romantic love with other
men - or women for other women - is contrary
to the teachings of Jesus. It is also contrary
to the fruit of the Holy Spirit of love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control.
He then led me again towards my bed and asked
me to phone a brother from my congregation. He gave me the
name of the brother, and asked me to tell him that my spirit
would come out of my body and that they should not bring
my corpse neither to the hospital nor to the any funeral
ceremony, but to tell my husband to trust the one who is
the Resurrection and the Life (John
Lord told me again: "I who give life, I take your spirit
but you will come back and tell the peoples to trust me
fully. The one who believes in me will never die (John
11:26). He stretched His hands and I saw that another
body came out of me. I was dressed in white and I was shining
like the Lord, He told me: "Look! This is the body that
Christians who obey my Word will soon have".
that I could go through the walls. The Lord who was holding
me by my hand said: "Look"! When I turned, I saw my body
without spirit, He explained to me that my physical body
was worthless, that it was nothing but dust, and that at
death it will become dust again, as any physical body. He
added that the new body I had was a glorious one which is
the spirit He gave to man.
After she returned to her body, Jesus pulled
her out of it again to show her the body that
only "Christians" who obey the Bible
will have. This testimony shows Jesus as a respecter
of a person's religion. It assumes only "Christians"
go to heaven. Because Jesus was Jewish and the
King of Jews, I wonder if Christian's will permit
Jesus to enter his own Kingdom?
I thought He would lead me straight to heaven,
but it was not the case. We descended through a tunnel below
the Earth. When approaching a certain place I could perceive
an unbearable smell. I said: "Lord I do not want to go into
that place". But we went in; that place was dark and not
worth living. I heard people suffering, weeping and screaming.
When we got to the end of the tunnel, we sat on a rock and
the Lord told me: "Look"! I saw people suffering. In hell,
people spend their time crying, no one cares about others.
brothers and sisters, I just came to realize that HELL IS
REAL. I wept, wept, and I looked at the Lord, He told me:
"Hold on to what you have seen, and do not forget it".
looking at the hell, people were screaming Ouch!, Ouch!
It's for ever, it's for ever, pain and hatred for ever and
Hell is below Earth? This is what some
of the writers of the Bible thought, but I have
never read an NDE testimony that mentions hell
to be below the Earth. Also, she testifies to
people screaming "Ouch!" in hell. Sounds like
they need a band-aid. You will also read throughout
this testimony the phrase "Hell is real" and
it's clear this is the main theme of the entire
testimony. The problem with emphasizing "hell
is real" over and over is that NDE research
is already aware of hell being real and that
there are many hell realms. But Fernandez doesn't
seem to know there are many hell realms and
not sa "one size fits all." For example, I get
a lot of email from fundamentalist Christians
who don't take the time to read the NDEs on
this website and therefore accuse me of teaching
that hell does not exist. I sometimes reply
to them that the fundamentalist concept of hell
is a "Disneyland" compared the hell realms described
in many NDE accounts. So this testimony of Jesus
demanding people to worship him or burn forever
is contrary to the fruit of the Spirit of love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control.
I turned toward the Lord and asked Him: "Is
there anyone from my family in this hell?"
me "I will not allow you to see a member of your family".
Him again: "Lord is there anyone that I know here?"
said the Lord and I will allow you to see him. Suddenly
I saw a young man coming from the depths of the hell, it
was Alexandre. I knew this young man at a crusade my husband
and I attended in Dominica Republic. During that crusade,
I heard a voice saying to me, "Get up, go and meet Alexandre
who is passing by. Tell him not to reject this message,
for I'm giving him a last chance". This voice was the voice
of the Lord even though I did not see Him. I told Alexandre
what the Lord told me.
is how he responded: "You Christians are all fools, you
deceive people by telling them that Jesus Christ is coming,
I, Alexandre, do not believe this to be the truth".
him: "Alexandre, God gives life and takes it away when he
wants; Alexandre, you will soon die.
"I am too young to die, I still have many good years of
festivities on this Earth."
chance was well and truly the last for Alexandre. Dear reader,
what do you know about yourself?
Three weeks later, Alexandre
died while he was drunk. His destination was this place
of torment where I saw him (hell). The Bible states clearly
that drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians
looking at people in hell, I could see Alexandre attacked
by two big worms. He was screaming Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! He
was tormented. He recognized me and told me: I neglected
my last chance, and I am here today, suffering. However,
when you return to Earth, go to my house and tell my family
to believe in Jesus Christ and to obey His word, so that
they will not come to this place of torment.
friend, it is high time you told your children, your father,
your mother, your husband, your wife, your colleagues, and
your friends about the Lord Jesus Christ. Wherever you go,
please preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ that sets free,
for HELL IS A REAL.
If you were not convinced yet about the falsehood
of this testimony, you should be convinced now.
For what reason does the "Lord" send Alexandre to
hell? For rejecting a message and drinking. This
testimony shows Jesus not judging a tree by its
fruit. Because of this, this testimony itself violates
the fruit of the Spirit. Here is the entire
Galatians 5:18-22 passage:
Bible: "But if
you are led by the Spirit, you are not
under law. The acts of the sinful nature
are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity
and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft;
hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage,
selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the
like. I warn you, as I did before, that
those who live like this will not inherit
the kingdom of God. But the fruit of
the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness
and self-control. Against such things
there is no law." (Galatians
Paul's testimony about
the fruit of the Spirit certainly was inspired by
his own encounter with Jesus in an NDE described
2 Corinthians 12:2-4.
Also, Paul's first epistle to the
Corinthians in chapter
13 is the
"love chapter" and truly shows that Paul was
in the light. But does Paul having an NDE make his
words infallible? No. Assuming it was Paul's intention
to have his letters become part of sacred scriptures
(which many people including myself do not believe
he did), then there are problems with Paul condemning
homosexuals, prostitutes, alcoholics, non-Christians.
It contradicts not only the teachings of Jesus but
also other parts of the Bible. Paul also includes
"jealousy" to be a manifestation of sin. If this
is the true, then what about this Bible verse: "For
the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God."
it is safe to judge Paul's testimony and other parts
of the Bible based on the fruit of the Spirit. And
some of the condemnations by Paul in the Bible do
not pass the "fruit of the Spirit" smell
the Lord showed me thousands of people who were suffering
in hell, and He told me: "You see, some of these people
knew Me when they were on Earth. There are still a lot of
people on Earth who walk on the street without knowing where
they go, but know that the way to heaven is very narrow,
and it will be narrower again; there will be difficulties
on Earth, so that you will be as pure as gold, but fear
not for I am ahead of you like a mighty warrior".
Him: "ARE THERE CHRISTIANS IN THIS HELL?", He answered:
"Yes, do you know why? They believed in Me but because of
their bad testimonies they lost their salvation. They were
so called Christians, but they did not walk according to
my Word. There are many, those Christians who only behave
well when they are in the temple, in front of their pastors
and their family. But they are greatly deceiving themselves.
The eyes of my Father see everything and He understands
every word, wherever you are".
told me again: "Do you know why they lost their salvation?
It is because they did not behave as those who believe in
me. Tell my people that it's time they lived a holy life
before my Father, before the devil and before the world.
Let the devil have no right to accuse my people; and let
the world not pointing finger at my people. Among my people,
there are many that the devil and the world accuse, and
they have reasons to do so. It's high time we sought holiness
and consecration" (1
Peter 1: 14-16).
believer, it's high time you took off the mask of egoism,
of hypocrisy and of pride, so that the Lord can use you
fully, just as He wants.
The "Jesus" in Fernandez's testimony says he
is a "mighty warrior"; but I thought Jesus is
the "Prince of Peace?" This warrior image was
lifted from the dream and prophetic symbolism
of the prophets and not the gospels. This "Jesus"
also says he is roasting people in hell because
of their "bad" testimonies. Condemning people
to eternal torture for giving "bad"
testimonies doesn't pass the "fruit of
the Spirit" smell test. Imagine Jesus telling
a Buddhist twelve year old, "You never heard
of me or knew about me, so I am going to burn
you forever in hell." Imagine Jesus telling
a Christian, "You gave a bad testimony so I
am going throw you in hell." Imagine Jesus judging
people based not upon the fruit of the Holy
Spirit of love, joy, peace, etc. Fernandez's
testimony of assuming a person can lose their
standing with God and be tortured forever demonstrates
a faulty understanding of the Holy Spirit and
Then we went somewhere where there was a lake
of fire. As we were approaching the lake, I perceived a
very bad smell and the Lord told me: "What you see there
is a lake of fire, which is already ready for the devil,
the false prophet, and the antichrist. I did not prepare
this place for men, but all those who do not believe in
me as their Savior and those who do not live according to
my word will go there (Revelation
moment I saw Jesus weeping and He told me again: "There
are too many of those who are lost than those who go to
heaven". And Jesus showed me the number of people who were
dying in a minute and He told me: "Look! How many are lost!
My Church is sleeping despite the fact that She has received
my power; She has my word and the Holy Spirit, but She is
sleeping. On Earth, there are people who preach that hell
does not exist. Go and tell them that this place is real".
very far from that place, but I could feel the heat. We
left the Hades and we went to heaven. We kept on going and
went to the second heaven. In that heaven the Lord showed
me the sun and the stars and He told: "Look at these stars,
I call each one of them by its name. Do you see this sun,
it's by my power that it shines both on the righteous and
the wicked. But there will come a day when the sun will
no longer shine, everything will be darkness".
further and reached the third heaven where God lives. In
front of us were beautiful houses made without Human's hands,
but by the King of kings and the Lord of lords. The walls
of those houses were very high, of pure gold and of precious
stones, with twelve gates of pearls, and with twelve angels
at the gates. On each gate was written the name of one of
the twelve tribes of Israel (Revelation
21:10-14). I thought I could not go in, but the Lord
looked at me and said, "Do you want to go in?"
"Oh yes Lord! I really want to."
get in! For I myself am the door" (John
moment I went in through a precious gate and I saw a garden
of magnificent flowers. "Do you want to go in the garden?
Then go in for I've prepared this for you and my people".
When I stepped in, I started to pick some flowers and to
arrange some bunches. I was running in the garden like a
little girl. The flowers I picked had many colors with a
very nice smell.
After that, the Lord called someone.
I saw the person approaching, it was an angel, strong and
so beautiful that I could not describe. The Lord told me,
"Do you see this one, he is the Archangel Michael, he is
the one who leads my army. Look again!"
I saw a mighty army on horses
and the Lord told me, "It's not a human's army, but my Father's.
This army is at the disposal of Christians who are REALLY
born again; do not fear, for it is more powerful than the
one which is in the world".
He showed me another angel. "This one, said the Lord, is
the messenger of Christians who obey my word". I was happy
to hear that.
Jesus told me, "Be attentive!
I am the God of Abraham, the God of Moses, the God of Elijah,
the One who caused fire to fall from heaven; I have not
changed. You have a poor god, a limited god. But I am the
Almighty God, who created heaven and Earth, and I am the
One you must serve. I am going to show you the condition
in which my people live in these last days they've got left".
One way to determine that a testimony is a fake
or is an embellished testimony is by how much
symbolism they use from the
Book of Revelation to describe heaven. When
the early Church of Rome decided to get rid
of scripture having to do with descriptions
of pre-existence and heaven, the Book of Revelation
almost got the axe. Scriptures such as the
Book of Enoch - a book which was part of
Hebrew canon and which Paul quoted from in the
New Testament (Jude
14-15) - and other books describing journeys
to heaven were not included in New Testament
canon such as the
Apocalypse of Peter. For this reason, orthodox
Christians have only had the Book of Revelation
as a reference to what heaven is like. But the
problem is that
Revelation is a dream or series of dreams
by John and is on the same level of Daniel's
prophetic dreams in the
Book of Daniel. For this reason, any NDE
testimony having the same symbolism as the Book
of Revelation must be interpreted as a dream.
So judging by Fernandez's literal use of the
Book of Revelation symbolism, it is obvious
to me that her testimony is false.
The Lord told me: "Be very careful about the
things I'm going to show you".
I saw Christians who were weak and
tired. The Lord asked me this question: "Do you believe
that I can take this Church away in its present state?"
and He told me, "Christians that I will take away with me
will be glorious, triumphant, spotless, blameless. Among
my people there are lies, lack of love, my people is divided.
I showed you the condition of Christians in these last days;
Now I'm going to show you how the early Church lived."
For me it was as if I was physically
in their midst.
brothers and sisters were filled with the glory of God.
They constantly fasted and prayed. They preached my word
without any fear. Whereas present Christians think that
I've changed. They also think that the Holy Spirit has changed.
The big mistake of Christians today is the fact that they
live a routine life, planned by human beings. Therefore,
they've forgotten that the messages are from the Holy Spirit
and from above. Tell my servants, the pastors, that time
has come to put behind those routine's programs. And you
will see the power of God in your midst, the Holy Spirit
who was manifest in the early Church. He will perform signs,
miracles and wonders in great number, causing the dead to
rise. The Holy Spirit is still the same. It's you who have
dialogue of "Jesus" seems to be too contrived.
It shows Jesus more concerned with doctrine,
ritual, church buildings, pastors, programs,
signs, miracles. This is not the Jesus of the
gospels - nor of the NDE - nor of a Jesus concerned
about the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
[Jesus continues:] "Christians, it's high
time you came back to the life of the early Church. You
have forgotten the praise which belongs to me, you also
neglect prayer. You do not remember that I dwell in the
midst of my people's praise. Time has come to praise me.
You must start all your activities by praising and giving
me all the glory because I am alive forever. I am the One
who sets free, who heals, and who saves. My children time
has come to bow down before me. It's high time you fasted
and called upon my name. You are not from the World."
Imagine being around someone who constantly
wants you to worship and praise him. Imagine
what kind of person wants or needs people
to constantly worship him, bow before him, and
praise him. We do not get to heaven by
Jesus. Otherwise, all of Jesus' teachings about
the behavioral requirements (of conforming to
the light of the Spirit of love, joy, and peace)
to enter heaven would be wrong. See
The "Jesus" of Fernandez's testimony
basically is saying, "Worship and praise me
or I will burn you forever!" and "Give me the
glory!" and "Bow down before me!" These
are the words of an ego-centric person, someone
who has a problem with self-centeredness, self-glory,
self-importance. This is does not pass Jesus'
test of judging according to the fruit of the
Holy Spirit smell test".
[Jesus continues:] "Men
oppose my work, as does the devil. But whether they like
it or not time of great blessings and revival is coming
for my people in these last days. The Holy Spirit will take
control. He will remove from the midst of my Church what
is hidden and shameful. During the time of revival and blessings,
the time of Ananias et Saphira will return for there are
many liars in my Church" (Acts
left this beautiful garden and went to the lovely street
of gold and the Lord told me: "Touch! Yes it's pure gold.
Go and tell my children that VERY SOON, they are going to
walk on these streets of gold by the hand of the One who
gives life" (Revelation
How great it is to walk on those streets of gold!
After that I saw a splendid Throne
surrounded by Angels, Archangels and Seraphins, they were
continually praising God, the One who was on the Throne,
saying: "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty;
heaven and Earth are filled with his Glory. Amen!"
Seeing that, Jesus told me: "If
they praise me, who are you in order not to praise and glorify
the One who died for you, and who gave you eternal life?
Time has come to lift up holy hands unto me and praise me".
same time I saw the river of the water of life flowing from
the Throne, I also saw the tree of life and at the other
end I saw the rainbow and the river of crystal.
Then, I asked the Lord: "Who
is on the throne?"
He answered: "It's my Father,
the Lord of Host".
I told Him: "Can I see the Father?"
"No it's not yet time", the Lord
Even though I did not see the
Father, the One who was on the throne was Mighty. I saw
thunder and flashes of lightning coming from the throne
and I heard praises.
Jesus told me: "Do you hear these
praises? These are your praises, the praises of those who
seven angels, each one of them holding a golden bowl; and
seven others (angels), each holding a trumpet. I was very
amazed by the angels.
"Lord, who are these angels?"
the Lord answered: "The seven bowls that the angels hold
are filled with the wrath of God; they will soon be poured
out and when the trumpets sound, my Church (those Christians
who live according to the will of my Father) will be caught
up. They will no longer be on Earth during the great tribulation.
Before the antichrist manifest himself, this man of sin,
my Church will hear the last trumpets' sound, and they will
meet me in the air" (1
The above description of heaven is practically
lifted right out of the Book of Revelation.
I was there, dear friend, in front of a great
throne. I did not have any notion of time. A moment later
Jesus showed me how His Church (the true believers) will
be caught up! I saw in this vision thousands of people disappearing.
In hospitals, new born babies also disappeared, parents
were deeply distressed and were desperately seeking for
their children. This happened world-wide, TV and radio were
given the news of the disappearing. Newspapers with (big
headlines in red), also brought out the news. The Lord told
me: "The news will soon happen". If the judgments of my
Father have not yet come upon the Earth, it's because of
the faithful Christians, those who really love me."
Dr. Richard Eby
also was told during his NDE about a "rapture"
which would occur before he died. But he died
Dec. 2nd, 2002 and no rapture occurred. For
those who don't know what the "rapture" is,
it is a theory based on some Bible verses that
someday an angel will suddenly appear and blow
a trumpet and people will come out of their
graves and go to heaven before the second coming
of Christ happens. Richard Eby's NDE is still
on my website. I believe he actually did have
an NDE; but it is obvious to me that he embellished
it heavily from the Bible to "save souls."
Eby was also a preacher. When he died, I can
personally testify to the great disappointment
that many people felt who were hoping that Jesus
would return before Eby died (he was in his
90's). This same kind of disappointment occurred
the Millerites predicted
the second coming in 1844.
After that, I saw the appearance of the man
of sin and he was saying to the inhabitants of the Earth:
"I'm bringing you peace and safety" and immediately people
forgot the event that had just taken place. Effectively
I saw in the vision that there was peace, a lot of money,
and jobs; and people were saying to themselves: "This is
the one who is going to solve our problems".
told me: "Look carefully!". I saw in the vision the seven
angels with the seven bowls. Dear friend, what was happening
was difficult to describe; I saw the angels pouring out
the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the Earth. Trumpets
started sounding. God was pouring out His judgments on the
inhabitants of the Earth, and whole countries disappeared.
Lord told me: "Look! All these people were part of my Church,
some were pastors."
I did not fully understand this, I asked the Lord: "How
is it that your people have been left so numerous in the
great tribulation? How is it that there are also pastors
among them, those who preached your word?"
answered: "Yes, they had preached my word, but they were
not living in accordance with my word. Not only do you have
to preach, but you also have to live my word."
the Lord allowed me to see another multitude of pastors
and He told me: "Those pastors were not preaching my word
as it is written, they thought that my word was not adapted
to their century. They had too much favor towards those
who were given a lot of tithes, for they were more interested
in materials. Go and tell my servants that I am the One
who called them, and that Silver and Gold belong to me and
I give them according to my greatness and glory. Tell them
to preach my word as it is written. They are many, those
who give another interpretation to my word. My word is my
word, no one can change it. It must be preached as it is
written. There are many among my people who distort my word
for their own profit."
Again, "Jesus" seems to be showing
partiality to pastors, even if it is negative
partiality. This doesn't pass the test with
me because it is clear in the gospels how Jesus
was not partial to anyone based on their religious
or social status.
After that, we entered a lounge in that new
Jerusalem and the Lord told me: "What you see is paradise".
In Paradise I saw the apostles and I asked the Lord, Lord
where is Abraham? I was expecting to see and old man, but
suddenly I saw a young man aged about 25 approaching. Jesus
told me, this is Abraham, the father of Faith. In Paradise,
there is no superiority, everybody is equal, they all worship
and glorify the Lord.
Lord called a very beautiful woman with an unspeakable beauty,
like all those I saw there, and He told me: "This is Mary!
Go and tell everybody that Mary is not the Queen of heaven,
that the King of heaven is I, the King of kings, and the
Lord of lords; the One who says: "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH
AND THE LIFE. (John
14:6-7). Go and tell this BLINDFOLDED MANKIND that there
no purgatory, for if there was one, I would have shown you.
Instead, there is hell, the lake of fire, the precious Jerusalem,
and the paradise which I showed you. But tell them that
there is no purgatory; tell them that IT'S A LIE FROM THE
DEVIL, THERE IS NO PURGATORY".
This is another instance where "Jesus"
appears to be more concerned about correcting
religious dogma than teaching spirituality.
In this case, it is about condemning Catholic
church dogma. But it just sounds too contrived,
partial, and evangelical to be believed. This
testimony is like a caricature of Jesus standing
in heaven and yelling down at us, "There is
no purgatory." And the people shout back, "There
is too." "There is not." "There
is too. "Is not." NDEs typically have much more
simple and profound messages than merely correcting
religious dogma. Real NDE messages to humanity
almost always have to do with unconditional
love. Many NDE accounts from credible people
describe Jesus as not being concerned about
religious dogma or theology at all. This is
the case with Jesus in the gospels as well.
For these reasons, Fernandez's testimony does
not pass the "smell test" of the fruits
of the Spirit of love, joy, and peace. So I
believe it does not represent the Jesus of the
gospels nor of the NDE.
Then the Lord led me to a store of crowns.
"These are crowns of life". The Lord asked me: "What do
I saw my local Church, the believers
of that community, singing and preaching, then I asked Jesus:
"Why are the names of the believers of my community not
written in this book?"
And He told me: "Because of their
wrongdoing on the Earth".
Then I saw in the vision that those
believers would later be reconciled to Jesus. Praise God!
After all this the Lord allowed me
to come back on Earth.
As you can see, Fernandez's testimony has a
strong Christian evangelical agenda which is
uncommon in real NDEs. This agenda becomes even
more obvious when you read the legalistic appeal
by the writer below. NDEs overwhelmingly show
Jesus concerned about people's hearts - their
spirituality. Creeds and dogma have little meaning
on the Other Side. But Fernandez's testimony
is an obvious attempt to convert people to a
religion and this may be why the writer felt
justified in bearing false witness to do so.
The following is the rest of Fernandez's sanctimonious
evangelical plea to worship Jesus. Note the
use of fear tactics in this appeal. Fear is
not a fruit of the Spirit.
Dear friend, you who read this testimony,
we plead with you to meditate once more on the life you
are living. No sin is hidden in the sight of God. Jesus
Christ is coming very soon to take with Him true Christians.
A true Christian is the one who sanctifies himself every
day, and not the one who lives in sin claiming that God
call yourself a Christian and you spend your time running
Matthew. 6:32-34, know that you will not find money
useful the time you want to rely on it.
call yourself a Christian and you are still in magic and
witchcraft practices, stop immediately, hell is real.
are the type of Christian who is not legally married, and
who still has sexual relationship with a boyfriend or a
girlfriend, stop immediately. Even if your pastor allows
such stupid things, understand that you will be the only
one to give account to God for yourself,
Romans 14:12. Even if you are in a Church where the
Holy Spirit is no longer present to reveal such acts, stop
Mark 4:22, repent and stop your prostitution, and put
your life right before God. If you carry on hardening your
heart, you will regret it, and it will be too late.
1 Corinthians 6: 9-10.
call yourself a Christian and your heart is full of hatred
and grudge, repent now and forgive all those who have wronged
1 John 3:15. Also ask for forgiveness to all those you
call yourself a Christian and you are still at ease in fraud
and bribery, stop! God expects sanctification from you.
were about to get involved in a false marriage, knowing
that it is not the will of God, be careful! Otherwise you
will regret forever.
1 John 2: 15-17. If you are planning to get married
with a divorced partner, or if you are planning to remarry
after your divorce, stop this folly while it's still time.
1 Corinthians 7:10-11.
call yourself a Christian, and you are still not yet baptized
by immersion, that means into water, do not take the chance
to find yourself one day saying, "If I knew, I would have
done it", "Nothing prevented me from doing so".
call yourself a Christian and you spend your time sinning
and deceiving yourself by claiming that "salvation cannot
be lost", I plead with you to meditate on these verses:
1 Corinthians 9:27;
1 Cornthians 10:1-11;
2 Peter 2:20;
Romans 11:21; the 7 letters addressed to the CHURCHES,
Revelation 2 and 3.
friend, know that you are playing with eternal life. Sit
down and think twice! It's more serious than you think;
You'd better stop hiding, you rather deceive yourself. None
can hide before God. Put your life in order before God!
Otherwise you will regret it.
bless you! May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with
