Life after death: Man recounts terrifying Hell-bound trip where ‘thousands burned in pits’

Many dismiss the idea that there is such a place as Hell, where retribution for past sins is handed out. It is often argued by sceptics that the devil and his subterranean empire are purely figments of the human imagination. Yet one man claims he went to Hell and back, revealing the remarkable journey in a book that has sold over one million copies and become a New York Times bestseller.

In a conversation with Christian broadcaster TCT Network, Bill Wiese relived his terrifying experiences of his Hell-bound trip.

Awaking one night in 1998, the devout Christian made his way to his fridge to get a drink.

Unbeknown to him, his soul was about to descend into the infernal abyss of Hell.

He claims that his spirit became detached from his body and was transported through a long tunnel into the terrifying underworld.

Mr Wiese allegedly landed on the floor of a prison cell, where he was struck by the intensity of the heat.

“There were stone walls, bars it was more like a dungeon – a filthy, stinking, smoke-filled dungeon,” he recalled.

He continued: “The heat was so unbearable, I wondered how could I be alive. Why am I here, how did I get here?”

The author recounted how he was mercilessly tortured by blasphemous demons, who directed a torrent of hatred towards himself and God.

In an interview with Fox News presenter Sean Hannity, Mr Wiese elaborated further on his 23-minute journey to Hell.

“I saw this big pit of fire,” he said.

He told Mr Hannity the most important thing was that the public believe God’s Word about the horrors of eternal death.

“The Lord simply wants me to point people to the Scriptures,” he said.

“Churches aren’t talking about the Scriptures that talk about hell.

“I’m just a signpost to point people to those Scriptures.”

Life after death: Man recounts harrowing accident that left him in ‘comforting darkness’

The jury is still out on what happens to us when we die, with accounts varying between cultures and religions. The scientific community, for the most part, agrees life does not go on after death. But people who have gone through so-called near-death experiences (NDEs) beg to differ, believing death isn’t an absolute end at all.

One such person is a man named Candy, who claims to have temporarily died as a freshman in high school.

Candy shared his account with the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), describing how a student accidentally choked him.

He said: “One day as our study hall monitor was out, this senior picked me up from behind with one arm across my upper shoulders.

“He swung me around with what I assumed was a big smile and laugh. The class thought it was hilarious.

“What they didn’t know is that his arm had slipped to my neck.”

As the grip on his throat cut off the oxygen from his brain, Candy slowly slipped out of consciousness – and life.

He described being surrounded by darkness until all was gone and everything was absolute silence.

Candy said: “Though the lights went out; yet, my consciousness was highly alert.

“I could no longer hear anyone or anything from in the classroom but I knew that I could hear.

“I saw nothing but darkness but did not feel blind.

In the aftermath of the incident, Candy is convinced the afterlife definitely exists.

He told NDERF: “Yes, I knew that I was continuing to exist apart from my body.”

Scientists, however, would be reluctant to take the harrowing account at face value.

Although it is true many NDE survivors recall similar instances of seeing lights or hearing voices, these are not necessarily evidence of an afterlife.

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest the brain remains active during moments of trauma and NDEs are hallucinations triggered by physiological processes.

A study at the University of Michigan, for instance, has analysed brain activity in mice with induced cardiac arrest.

The study found a spike of activity in the final 30 seconds before the mice died.

Jimo Borjigin, PhD, associate professor of molecular and integrative physiology and associate professor of neurology, said: “This study, performed in animals, is the first dealing with what happens to the neurophysiological state of the dying brain.

“We reasoned that if near-death experience stems from brain activity, neural correlates of consciousness should be identifiable in humans or animals even after the cessation of cerebral blood flow.”

Derek Draper health: Why was his case of Covid so severe? Kate Garraway recounts ordeal

Derek Draper, 53, was hospitalised with coronavirus in March last year, the same month the UK went into national lockdown, and was admitted to an intensive care unit. In June he remained in a critical condition and was placed into an induced coma. A year on, he remains in intensive care, and according to wife Kate Garraway he experiences only “fleeing glimmers of consciousness”.
Garraway has been unable to visit him since December, when the third lockdown was imposed, but noted his condition deteriorated dramatically without human contact.

She said: “I feel like he is in an ocean of unconsciousness and sometimes he comes up to the surface. In the run-up to Christmas there were moments of consciousness where I felt like we were really communicating,”

Adults of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from Covid, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

It defines severe illness from COVID-19 as hospitalisation, admission to the ICU, intubation or mechanical ventilation, or death.

DON’T MISS

It says adults of any age with the following conditions are at increased risk of severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Down Syndrome
  • Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies
  • Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant
  • Obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 kg/m2 or higher but < 40 kg/m2)
  • Severe Obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2)
  • Pregnancy
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Smoking
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus
So if you’re at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19, what can you do to reduce your risk of getting the virus.

The best way to protect yourself and to help reduce the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, says the CDC, is to:

Limit your interactions with other people as much as possible.

Take precautions to prevent getting COVID-19 when you do interact with others.

Precautions include getting vaccinated – you should get a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to you, and wearing a mask in public.

The AstraZeneca Covid vaccine has come under scrutiny the last few weeks after reports of blood clots.

Several countries, particularly in Europe, temporarily suspended use of the vaccine as a result.

But new data has now revealed the vaccine is 100 percent effective against severe or critical disease and hospitalisation.

AstraZeneca said an independent safety committee conducted a specific review of the blood clots in the U.S. trial, as well as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), which is an extremely rare blood clot in the brain, with the help of an independent neurologist.

It showed that the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine was 79 percent effective at preventing symptomatic illness, and was 100 percent effective against severe or critical disease and hospitalisation.
