Going to Hell

I had a dream last night that has left me still shaken this morning. In fact, I think I must’ve been awake when I had it.

I dreamed I was condemned to Hell and two demons, one on each side of me, were dragging me to the doorway to Hell–a nasty-looking, rusty old metal door. And I knew that once that door was opened and I was shoved through, there would be no getting out again. Forever. And there’s no end to Hell.

At which point my eyes snap open.

Now, I know we have a Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who has defeated death and Hell and who can and will save us. He is my Savior. He doesn’t let His people get dragged off into Hell.

So why the dream?

I don’t know. Maybe so I can say “I’ve only seen the door, and that’s bad enough!” Maybe to remind me of what we’re getting saved from.

In any case, I have passed on the message.

  1. Sometimes we need to be reminded that Hell is real, and that even though Christ died to save us from it, we still need to “work out [our] salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12)

    1. Because I’m tired and slow this morning, it took a few minutes for it to sink in–how my dream and your hymn request go together like bookends!

      That sort of thing does happen around here sometimes.

  2. That must have been horrible. I have lately read of more than one person having similar dreams, and some much worse. Also have read of several people having had visits to heaven when they died on the operating table, but then coming back to their bodies The whole thing is something to really ponder and do our very best to serve as the Lord wills us to.. in every way.

  3. I like the image of a door. In Revelation John was shown a door to enter through into heaven, so heaven is next door for us Christians living on the earth. Then again, there is a door that leads to hell, so hell is just net door as well. So glad I chose Jesus as my door.
