"I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me." Galatians 2:20
Ex-Buddhist CUTS His Throat and Belly Sees Heaven & Hell!

We’re going to watch and comment on the testimony in this video about an ex-Buddhist and ex-drug addict who sliced his own neck and his stomach and went to heaven and hell. This is not a testimony that you want to pass by. We want to examine our lives, our faith in the light of eternity, especially hearing Steve’s testimony right now. This is where it gets kind of crazy.

What Made Steve Take His Own Life

Steve: I smoke what’s called the “Death Bowl.” The “Death Bowl” is the street name for Heroin, Cocaine PCP. It looks like marijuana but it’s laced. So when I smoked this drug, I stayed up for 10 straight days. After the third day of staying up, you lose sight of date, time, who you are, why you’re alive.

On the last day. I actually had an encounter with I believe is Satan now, but he came to me in the “open vision.” He just looked like an Asian grandpa and said “I know you’re having a hard time.” and I said “Yeah.” I thought it was my Buddhist god. So when he came to me he said, “It’s time for you to take your own life.Cut your neck, cut your stomach and I’ll spare you from hell.” And I didn’t know Jesus back then, so that’s exactly what I did.

Here is the important part. We’re going to continue this testimony but you have to understand, if you’ve had suicidal thoughts like this, let me tell you something. The devil will always lie. He’s going to tell you lies and say he’s going to keep you away from hell. But he has no power to do that because the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven and to Hades is owned by Jesus. Not the devil. He can’t give you what he doesn’t have. And that’s why he tells people a lie, saying just end it because it’s going to be peaceful, it’s going to be fine.

So many near death experiences here, many times they’ll say, yeah, the devil tried to speak to them initially in a peaceful voice saying,

“Just take your own life, go do it.”

“Jump off the building.”

But don’t listen to that! Because Jesus the one who gives life and the devil is the one who comes to steal kill and destroy. You don’t want to do that.

And unfortunately, Steve actually listened to the voice of the devil. But praise God for God’s mercy which we will hear at the end.

Steve Sees Hell

Steve: I went to the kitchen with my mom in the house and I grabbed the biggest knife I could find and I cut my neck open and also my stomach open. You know, which and I lost 90% of my blood. My mom walks into the living room and she sees her son almost dying.

She calls 911 and the cops come over to try to get the knife away from me and they came within like one minute right. I was wrestling with them, they took the knife away. They maced me, whacked me with a bat and we’re struggling. And that’s when I fainted after being whacked, whacked, whacked by the bat. And pretty soon I’m going in and out and I’m in the hospital.

And at the hospital, that’s when I had the “whooofy, I literally, you know, lost consciousness before the surgery. And I see myself, but I’m not going to Heaven like the false god Satan, coming as an old grandpa said. I’m sinking and it feels like an elevator just falling down. And after five minutes of just this horrific feeling of being abandoned and fear multiplied by a hundred by anything you can feel on earth.

I land and I look around and it’s hell. How do I know it’s hell? Because first of all, I never had this thought before, but when I got there during this out-of-body experience, I looked around and there was just so many countless people. I wasn’t the only one there. Demons are ceiling high, they’re everywhere.

I feel pain and I knew I was a sinner and I will never leave this place. I don’t know where the idea came from. I just supernaturally knew, instinctively knew.

This is the thing that many people who have near death experiences or they actually died and doctors brought them back to life. They see themselves descending into earth, some of these people actually thought of themselves to be Christians. But they actually ended up in hell. And also unbelievers, they start seeing the countless amounts of people. No matter how famous you are on earth, nobody knows who you are in hell because everyone is suffering.

All of a sudden like Steve says here, there’s this fear that grips them. They know there’s absolutely no hope, there’s no getting out. That’s one of the most horrible part in hell many people talk about is the absolute hopelessness, knowing that they can never get out and instinctly, they knew there was a God while they’re in hell. It’s because of their sin. It’s because they rejected Jesus Christ.

So today, as you’re listening to this testimony, do not delay to surrender your life back to Jesus Christ, especially if you’re a believer. Do not go and play church, do not live a life that’s lukewarm because we don’t want to go to this place.

We want to rather go to the eternal kingdom of the Lord, Jesus Christ who has promised us to those who love Him and truly are washed clean by the blood of the Lamb and their names are written in the Book of Life. May we do that and enter His Kingdom.

Steve’s Realization After Seeing Hell

Steve: And that’s when I realized like, I made a big mistake. I woke up the next day and they told me I was out for 12 hours, but it was a five minute visit to hell And I knew I didn’t want to be there because it’s like hopelessness, despair, loneliness and pain.

When I came out of it I was like, you know, and I was very traumatized for the next three months. That’s how painful it was. Jesus talks about the place of torment where there is no quenching of fire and there’s no stopping of the gnashing of teeth. And I did feel heat, I did feel darkness, I felt hopelessness. That’s how I knew it was biblically valid. It was exactly what He said.

So here’s the thing, a lot of Christians today and unbelievers want to explain away hell. It’s not eternal torment, it’s not literal fire, but the bible makes it really clear that it is literal fire. It is actual torment. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:42)

And yet why do many people want to explain away the absolute torture of hell? It’s because people today don’t have the fear of God. They don’t understand that God is holy and He’s righteous and He’s coming back to judge the world of righteousness.

That is why we need to make right with God while there’s still grace or else you don’t want to find yourself on that day when you meet God like Steve in hell and there’s no recourse because salvation is today.

You don’t want to wait until the very last minute to repent and turn back to God.

The Sinner’s Prayer

Steve: You want to say the sinner’s prayer? I was like, “Yes! I do!” I was so relieved and scared of hell and relieved of being alive at the same time. I think I said the sinner’s prayer about 10 times. Yeah. So the Lord allowed me in His grace and and love and mercy to see hell, just like it is in the bible.

Real quick here about the sinner’s prayer. We know we’re not saved by a “sinners prayer.” We’re saved by the blood of Jesus by repenting and trusting in Him when we follow Him daily. That’s what saves us.

But I’m not really against a certain prayer for someone to start to walk with God. Great! If he prayed 10 times and he feels like he’s walking with God. And you can tell later on he’s giving his testimony now. His life has been surrendered to Jesus Christ.

So don’t just rest your faith, don’t just rest your salvation on some prayer you pray one time 10 years ago but rather walk with Jesus every day. Because when you do that, you start hearing how God has changed his life right now.

Steve: Six months later or rather more like seven months later in the summer of 1999. I was in Korea now. For six months, I was just resting at the prayer mountain and I tried to go back to school but I couldn’t really be physically all there. So I ended up just kind of leaving school,

I’m resting, trying to become a Christian right? But at the same time I’m still partying with my non-Christian friends. They heard what happened, and they still kept coming. So I still went drinking after this happened.

I was like “Lord, I heard of mercy and forgiveness. Let me have one last shot.” right? It ended up causing me to party like every day.

How many of you have done that? I know I have when I called myself a Christian, partied with Christian friends, got drunk and did certain things that Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, if you practice those things do not be deceived, you will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

Praise God for his mercy. That He has woken me up from His word that I know that I cannot continue living that life. Just like how Steve’s talking about here. Have you repented of your sin today? Especially if you claim to follow Jesus.

This is something that you and I must examine in our hearts today.

Steve Sees Heaven

Steve: The midst of this partying in the summer, the Lord allowed me to have a car accident which really struck fear in me and at the same time He gave me a dream. Like I didn’t even ask for this dream.

I was on the top of a mountain, the dream very vivid. And I heard the voice of God. And I’ve never heard audibly, this clearly. And God speaks to me in bible verses and He said, “Jesus is my beloved Son in whom I’m well pleased.”

“Listen to Him.”

“Listen to Him.”

“Listen to Him.” and I was like “Oh my God! Did I just hear God?”

And I saw this triangular light like rotating in the dream. And I’m on the top of a mountain and I see this huge, beautiful valley with the river and mountains on both sides. And just like it says in Revelation 21:2 it says,

“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”

It was literally a transparent pyramid triangular city. I think it was a new Jerusalem. And it came down and there were angels on both sides just flying with trumpets that were so long and they’re worshiping God. And I knew it was not human voice because it was just so Holy and perfect and majestic and beautiful.

At that moment compared to seeing hell and compare that hopelessness times a hundred which of anything on earth, painful. pain wise and seeing Heaven where the peace and the joy and the comfort you feel of having the Father right next to you, like tangibly, visibly with you is incomparable.

And I knew that God was showing me heaven because He wants all of humanity there. He wants every single soul there. The defining moment for heaven and hell, seeing heaven and hell and coming to the point of realization of resolution of lifestyle change was I need to share this gospel with every human being I meet.

We ask ourselves like what can we do to love this person? We can do acts of service, give them money, pray for them. But if they don’t know, Jesus, the greatest gift we can give them is to let them know these two places are real and that through Jesus, you can actually go to heaven. Only through Jesus actually.

Just like how Steve says the greatest gift you and I can give anyone is to show them the gift of Jesus Christ. Because there’s a real place of heaven and hell. We don’t want to go to hell. Nobody wants to go to hell. Everybody wants to go to heaven of course.

But did you know that the bible says that there are only a few people who are going to make it? Because you have to strive and enter through the narrow gate and that way, that path is difficult.

Most of people are going to take the easy route. They’re going to try to live life that’s convenient, that’s pleasurable to them. But if you want to go to heaven, you have to follow Him, you’re going to have to strive to enter through the narrow gate. You’re going to keep His commandments because you love Him, and because your faith is genuine.

Go ahead and share this with other people who need to hear it.

Until next time.

God bless you!
