What happens when you die? By Rabbi Simon
Jesus = Yahushua (His true Hebrew name)
God = Elohim (the word God is not adequate to describe YHWH though can be used)
Hell: Sheol or Hades interchangeable words.
The testimony of Bill is very disturbing so please do listen but with a strong heart as this may give you nightmares, I am sorry but this is necessary for you to know the truth, rather you find out now then later when it is too late!
There is a testimony attached here of someone who had an out of body experience of Hell so I welcome for you to listen to Bill Wisemen.
Bill Wisemen explains what Yahushua showed him about hell.

Hell is Real and will be the abode of many Christians living in sin, Muslims, Hindus, athiests etc etc etc...
Revelation 22:15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
Let me clear up the passage a little for you.
Revelation 22:15 (expanded to clarify many points) But outside are dogs (gentiles who do not know YHWH) and sorcerers (those practicing witchcrafts, magical arts, medicinal divinations), sexually immoral (those living in sin like unmarried couple and having children and having relationship as husband and wife, homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals etc), murderers (homicidal and others planning on killing others for personal or religious reasons such as radical Muslims who kill others calling them infidels) Idolaters (those worshipping statues or an "idea" calling them a creator, includes Hindus, Buddhists, Bahai's et all who reject YHWH's loving Torah instructions for righteous living and whoever loves (holds on to these things as truth and calls themselves good by societal standards) and practices a lie (this is the way they live and see nothing wrong with this life style).
This is one of those subjects that are ridiculed by the atheist and the unbelievers alike, even some Christians do not want to believe in these places and even amongst conservative Christians the doctrine of hell is not taught because of a lack of understanding and also not to create fear. The atheist would like to remain in his worldview that does not entertain any idea of the divine creator beyond his imagination that would have created him/her or that his actions in this life are accountable, he would rather be a product of evolution, created from nothing the sort of nonsense taught in schools and colleges in the West. I am not going to talk about what schools and colleges teach since I will not expand into the subject of creation, however I want to discuss if hell is a literal place and if so what happens to the dead those who believe in Yahushua of Nazareth and those that do not believe in Him. There are three words that define Hell in Scriptures, Gehenna, Hades, and Tartaros. The word "Gehenna" is literally for the valley of Ben Hinnom on the south side of Jerusalem. Here in the old times evil things took place like offering child sacrifices to the false creator Molech (Jeremiah 7:31-32). This is also the place for the town dump where fire burned continually and it is also a Drash (Allegorical) description of of a place where sinners will suffer continually until thrown into the lake of fire. The Greek word for Sheol is Hades interchangeable and the reference used in 2 Peter 2:4 for hell is "Tartaros" that also refers to the lowest depths of Hades. This is the place reserved for angels who rebelled to be thrown into the lake of fire.
First of all if hell exists then by the very definition of it a higher being exists and we do believe that this higher being is known as Yahuweh revealed in the flesh as Yahushua of Nazareth in Israel about 2000 years ago as spoken by the prophets. Since hell is a literal place therefore heaven is also a literal place not just a concept and those that will ultimately end up there because more people are going to hell than heaven this is a reality that a lot of people do not grasp as yet. We must not forget there is the 1000 years of kingdom reign on earth then the 8th day will start which is a new world followed by eternity. Yahuweh will decide who lives in the renewed heaven and earth or in His holy abode the third heavens.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
One thing is certain that Yahushua did not believe that ALL roads lead to the kingdom of Heaven as many today have started to believe, He declared that He is THE Door if one is to enter in to find refuge from hell than He is it. Christians can also go to hell being born into a Christian family is not enough but the new birth which is a regeneration from above is essential and on top we must forgive all our adversaries in order to receive mercy ourselves.
John 14:6 Yahushua saith unto him, I am the WAY [Ha Derech], the TRUTH [Ha Emet], and the LIFE [Ha Chaim]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
I also wish to talk about the subject to elaborate what happens there and build our thesis as to the purpose of hell. I will also present the testimony of someone who had an out of body experience in hell so you may know what I cover here is from scripture and to hear someone else as evidence to know that we mean business and hell my friends is serious business and can have severe health hazards more so then smoking cigarettes. Those that choose to disobey Yahuweh and reject the salvation offered by His Son Yahushua are doomed already, they are walking zombies and when they die the reality will kick in and to top it all they will never escape to tell the ordeal and punishment they will live through on a daily basis, they will cry, wail, moan but no one will come to their aid because when they were on earth they were given ample opportunity to know the truth of Yahushua Christ but they did not care. We have plenty of indications in the Bible of this place and why it was created and on top of that Yahuweh has given us eye witness testimony of those that were shown a glimpse of this horrible place. The idea is not to scare you but to make you aware, HELL IS REAL tell people about it, print this article and give it to those who doubt the existence of such a place because after death there is no return to ask for forgiveness, its either in your lifetime or not, the choice is wide open to all.
2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to HELL, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
The Greek word use in this passage is "Tartaros", this is a place reserved for rebelling angels. This is the deepest part of Hell in fact very deep.
Those that have had an out of body experience such as Bill Wise and others is simply an act of Yahuweh to show the world the reality the world does not want to face including sadly many in the churches.
Hell is a literal place with extreme heat
Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in My anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell; it shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
The word used for hell is Sheol in the Hebrew it could be translated grave or more correctly PLACE OF THE DEAD. The lake of fire however is a different place to this and is not in this dimension where as Sheol is literally in the deep earth believed to be near the centre of the earth. All the testimonies that I have heard of people who were taken there as an out of body experience or who were shown visions have described it just like Scripture dictates deep in the earth with fires raging. I have read testimonies of believers like Pastor Daniel Ekechukwu who died and was dead for two days and then raised from the dead which can be read here http://www.shepherdserve.org/special_reports/daniel_main.htm.
Korah's with his wicked clan go down to the pit or Sheol
Numbers 16:30 "But if the Lord creates a new thing, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the pit, then you will understand that these men have rejected the Lord.''
Even though Korah and his men were amongst the congregation supposedly worshipping Yahuweh but they were wicked and did not believe in Yahuweh so they ended up in the pit and the same is true today for those that are in churches or outside who do not believe in Yahuweh and will also end up in the pit i.e. Sheol (hell). Hence wearing a collar or a cross does not exempt you unless you are a born again saved and washed in the blood of Messiah. If you have the seed (the word of Yahuweh) in your life then you will produce the fruits thereof and if you are not producing the fruits then something is wrong and you are headed south not North in other words you will descend into Sheol to your doom later to be thrown into the lake of fire.
For further support we have this passage;
Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, And ALL the NATIONS that forget Elohim.
This scripture literally applies to many Christians who backslide and forget YHWH is a holy Elohim.
Hell or Sheol is a place reserved for the wicked or those that do not obey Yahuweh that includes the atheists not believing in Him. Saying that Elohim does not exist so I don't care is not an excuse to avoid the torment that is to come or sayin that YHWH is love does not except you.
You can serve Yahuweh or demons, take your pick? Demons are real and do exist in the airwaves we have seen films such as the exorcist which are only realities of things unseen. These beings are an ugly bunch, where or how they were created I have my thoughts but they are not for this article. Remember Yahushua cast out demons from people in Israel who were tormenting them in their body but in hell well they do exactly that but a lot more and then you will see them physically too.
Deuteronomy 32:17 They sacrificed to demons, not to Elohim, to gods they did not know, to new gods, new arrivals that your fathers did not fear.
If you do not worship Yahuweh then what's the alternative? Demons, yes it is demons and you may without knowing be doing exactly that. We are forced to take sides either its with Yahuweh or with Satan the old deceiver and his comrades the army of demons. There aren't any good demons or good Muslim (Jinns) demons as the Islamic Muslims have been taught, I know because I was a Muslim taught about the demons (Jinns) who came to faith after hearing the Qur'an and those that didn't. This is another Islamic lie to deceive simple people.
Isaiah 24:22 They will be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and will be shut up in the prison; after many days they will be punished.
Lets get down to business. People in hell are GATHERED TOGETHER and will be shut up in a prison or chambers e.g. cells (Proverbs 7:27). There will be punishment and I have heard several testimonies of demons tormenting people there with physical violence that one can do nothing about. The soul feels the pain and cries for help but none is given and even the strongest guy with the big bulky muscles if you are like Arny (Arnold Schwarzenegger) types are left weak and lose their strength in the pit.
Proverbs 7:27 Her house is the way to hell, descending to the CHAMBERS of death.
Hell has chambers or rooms where people are kept for judgment, no your sin is not purged and you do not go to heaven after as taught by some religious texts but you are tormented, tortured and on the final judgment the only abode your soul will have is the lake of fire. Rejecting Yahushua has a huge penalty but in Yahuweh's mercy He sent His Son, if you reject Him today then you reject at your own peril. It is not YHWH who chose hell for you but it is YOU my friend who chose hell for yourself.
Jonah 2:6 I went down to the moorings of the mountains; the earth with its bars closed behind me forever; yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O YHWH, my Elohim.
Some teachers of the Bible believe Jonah died in the belly of the great fish and was in hell and he described the bars (prison) and mountains. Remember when you are in hell/Sheol you cannot say I will repent now or ask for forgiveness because at that time friends it is too late. There is no second or third chance as Hindus are deceived to believe.
Job 7:16 They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
Again we see bars that only describe the structure of this great prison that can accommodate billions with no problem with separate cells or chambers (there won't be any cable TV or Sky in there but you will be whipped severely). No and you are not allowed your game-boy or the X-Box in your prison cells. The only thing heard out of these walls is screams of the dead being beaten up and thrashed against the walls.
Isaiah 14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
Although the above scripture strictly speaking refers to the anti-Messiah but it can apply to you also. Hell is a barren place not a pretty place with trees or nice lakes, its a barren and very desolate land, now you may visit the lakes and admire the beauty and deny YHWH, that may be well and good but down there you will have no time to admire these things but only time to regret and weep and gnashing your teeth cursing YHWH why no one could convince you when you were alive or worse still you did not listen when YHWH sent that witness and how you mocked them as a religious nutcase, cuckoo, idiots and bigots. Who is crying now?
Matthew 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
This is not allegorical but literal!
Isaiah 14:9-11 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. (10) All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? (11) Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
The kings in Hell are welcoming the anti-Messiah who is also headed that way plus Satan.
In hell there is no strength left in you to do anything against the onslaught that is about to take place. Even if you are the incredible Hulk on earth but in hell you will have no strength to put up a defence or fight. The so called kings of the past who thought they were mighty in their time are conscious and suffering torment daily, they are brought down humiliated, their pomp and splendour is brought down, they are so weak and this is where most people will end up, the so called good of this earth. This particular passage is about the Anti-Messiah who also though will be a powerful figure will be brought to Sheol and punishment that awaits him there. These kings will make fun of him because he is a mere man who cannot do anything and believe me demons have zero IQ and zero respect for people in Sheol and you can be a Cambridge and Oxford university Graduate or you can be a Harvard whiz kid, it makes no difference. If you do not have the new birth you are living on BORROWED TIME. what good would be Sheol if there was no form of punishment there but Scripture is emphatic that punishment awaits many people (Isaiah 24:22). Hell is a bad place, the only person who stands between hell and us is Yahushua of Nazareth who can save us physically. Are you His disciple? If no then don't leave things to chance you may not be able to come back from this place to tell about the suffering. Houdini thought he could come back from the dead but he remains there to this day...
Deuteronomy 32:22-26 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. (23) I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. (24) They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. (25) The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. (26) I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
Hell is burning with fire and it shows that this place lies at the foundation of the mountains, guess what the lava that is the hottest place of the earth with heat in the ranges of thousands of degrees such as 3700 degrees or so. The Hebrew word for mischief translates to "misery", "despair" and "sorrow". What good is this sorrow and misery since you can never come out of this state? In hell you will feel hungry in your consciousness and you will feel thirsty but you will be given no water and none will be available, the atmosphere has zero humidity and the place is extremely dry. These demons will punish you and they hate Yahuweh Elohim so likewise they hate anything God created, they cannot touch Yahuweh but they can do the next best thing that is to touch His creation in retaliation. Like the rich man (Luke 16:24) you ask for one drop of water yes that is right, imagine we drink several glasses of water a day but in hell you only ask for one drop of water to cool you tongue but even that is not available. In hell you have a keen awareness and you recognise people, your relatives etc. The punishments are repeated as you sow it will be given to you.
The word "beast" can be any large beast, the description that I have derived from most people who had the out of body experience of hell is that these are large creatures of eleven or twelve foot height, look like they have deformed type of arms and legs, in essence description of demons who will punish you, beat you throw you around in chambers where Bill describes as two in his chamber. No one remembers you in hell, you are forgotten. There are also descriptions of Trolls with spears, sounds like a story of legends but I am afraid this is not legendary material but HARSH REALITY awaiting all those who do not have the New Birth. I was taught the doctrine of hell as a Muslim and even there it was not a nice thing but when I got to know the REAL HELL wow I was thrown back because it is so real with some people who have witnessed the place. Thanks Elohim for Yahushua my King.
2 Samuel 22:6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;
Its a dark and dismal place with sorrow that cannot be removed.
Micha 3:2-4 Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; (3) Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron. (4) Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
This is what Israel's enemies did, have you ever seen the radical Muslims in Israel how they kill the Jewish people and shoot Jewish babies at close range? They do cut up their skin, they cut up their flesh, they crush their bones and they even bite into their organs, well in hell the same happens to you, that is right if you are not saved this could be you down under so think where your life is going. Am I trying to scare you? No, not really. I am only telling you truth. These things the evils that the humans have learnt are believed to have come down from the fallen angels of those that came to earth to corrupt the earth by marrying women, Genesis 6 touches on this a bit but you need to read the book of Enoch to get the raw details.
Psalms 36:5 Thy mercy, O YHWH, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
Yahuweh is merciful but unto those who are in heaven, it was in His mercy that He sent His only Son to die for our sins, there is no mercy in Hell.
Psalm 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
Once again the Psalm depicts cruelty and cruelty is not without punishment and humiliation, the demons are there just for this and every testimony I have heard of is how cruel these beings are and it is not nice but real wickedness. The Hebrew word used for cruelty is "Hamas", surprised, not really and what do the current Hamas party do against the Jewish people in Israel? They butcher the Jews and are cruel towards them well Yahuweh is describing what will befall to those people who are in hell, cruel punishment inflicted by these so called beast that is a reference to demons.
Isaiah 5:14-15 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. (15) And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
You may think now look at me how cool I am but if you are not born again from above then you will be brought down, there will be nothing of cool left in you. You maybe a good person but you will be brought down still, abased, you may think you are a strong guy, wow those beautiful muscles but when you are in hell you do not have the strength to fight and you are seriously humbled and put out of action for good. Is that where you want to be? If not call out to Yahushua of Nazareth, Repent for the kingdom of Yahuweh is at hand.
Isaiah 57:9 And thou wentest to the king with ointment, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thy messengers far off, and didst debase thyself even unto hell.
Your works on the earth will not help, your sin will bring you down however your repentance will help.
Ezekiel 32:24...yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.
There is shame in hell and not fame. No Hollywood mania there, in fact most of Hollywood stars have reserved spaces in Hell. Its called advanced booking, they booked themselves there by living unrighteous unholy, sinful lives on this earth. They thought we have money but their money is not worth the paper it is written on.
Psalm 88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
Hell is very very dark place and of course deep in the earth with no light. The only light is of fires that you see down there burning in distant.
Revelation 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
Well those that worship the beast/Islam will end up in hell, this kingdom place of Islam is full of darkness and wretchedness, in hell they will cry but no one to help the Muslim world, there is genuine pain there. This particular reference in Revelation is to a bio strike that will cause people to go like this that will take place in the near future where the chemicals will cause them to do these things but hell is very similar my friends and so far I see no repentance in Islam as they continue to march to kill the infidels.
Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
People have made their destiny hell as they do not want to believe in the only Saviour Yahushua.
Isaiah 24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
Those who go down to hell will have fear and retribution of Elohim upon them for not believing in Him.
Deuteronomy 29:23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the Lord overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:
This is the symbolic and literal picture of hell, a very desolate place.
Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
Hell is so hot, this shows nothing grows there it is completely desolate. Yahuweh's anger is real and His wrath well how about wait and see if you do not believe this.
Jude 1:6-7 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (7) Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
The angels that rebelled are kept on for everlasting judgment just like Peter wrote in 2 Peter 2:4 and likewise people who do not believe are also kept in judgment.
Isaiah 57:21 There is no peace, saith my Elohim, to the wicked.
In hell there is no peace but torment forever and forever.
Job 26:6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
No one can escape hell unless you are born of above through the Holy Spirit.
Luke 16:19-25 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: (20) And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, (21) And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (22) And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; (23) And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. (24) And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. (25) But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
This is not just an analogy or parable but this story is real of a real man who ended up in hell and Yahushua tells this man's story how once he is gone there even though he begs Abraham to send someone back to warn his brothers but nothing as such could be done, Yahushua gave us on a plate what many did not know about hell but many still close their eyes. The Drash reference is clearly to the one who rejected Moses and the five books called the Torah (instructions). Yahushua came back from the dead to speak about this yet many Christians reject His Torah too. Ironic.
You can laugh at me for writing all this but I won't be laughing at you when you are suffering in hell that is for sure, I make this my duty to warn you of impending danger in your eternity. Are you ready to believe me or take your chance to gamble away your eternity?
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Although this passage is literally applied to the Anti-Messiah and his followers i.e. Muslims who have no rest literally as they have to pray six prayers in the day, five daily and one at late night (tayyad) and they have no rest at all as then they have to wakeup again for the next set of prayers, this is a good picture of someone going to hell who will also have no rest so the Drash (allegoric) applies to hell but the literal Pashat reading is for the Muslims on the earth.
Zechariah 9:11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
Quite clear hell has no water not a drop no wonder the rich man in Luke 16 is asking for a drop but does not even get this. Yahuweh has set us free by the blood of Yahushua but not through my merit or some good deed I did years ago. The Muslims believe that sometimes even if you do one good work that it might please Allah to save you from hell but this is not how Yahuweh's justice works, you either come in under the blood of Yahushua or you do not come in at all. The good works are necessary unto salvation to show our fruit and most of all Yahuweh created us for good works not for evil works.
Ephesians 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
This is about Yahushua who descended into Hell in the earth (under the earth) also after His death and then He was raised to show Yahuweh's power since no ordinary man has the power to come back from the dead, Yahushua on the other hand is not just any ordinary man, He is God incarnate.
Isaiah 38:18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
The Roman Catholic idea of purgatory is not correct that your sins are cleansed and then you go to heaven because you cannot hope for the truth as the verse says above, once you are there it is over and you remain there until the time that Sheol will be removed to be thrown into the lake of fire, it's a terrible place but what can be done of those who do not want to listen to this horrible reality. Once you are dead and in hell no one down there will be praising you and saying oh, its that beautiful star so and so of Hollywood, give me an autograph because there in front of those blaspheming demons you won't be a Hollywood celebrity but a "nobody" to be smashed around and punished until the Great White Throne judgment to be thrown into the lake of fire.
Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Although in context the verse implies that the Anti-Messiah and his whole system with Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire, the question is how can they be alive since the Bible says the Anti-Messiah will be killed? The answer lies in the fact that although we may die in the body that is made of clay but our souls are eternal so therefore the punishment of hell or this particular verse of the "lake of fire" is conscious thus "alive".
Revelation 22:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
It is evidently clear that the souls are alive and do feel the punishment consciously just like we do now.
Remember after this you have only yourself to blame if you do not heed these warnings and refuse to believe that Yahushua of Nazareth is your saviour and has atoned your sin if you want to believe and take it in faith to obey Him and follow Him obeying His commandments.
Some things to consider
We know unbelievers go to Sheol but what about believers or righteous Christians blood washed in Messiah? Yes there is such a thing as unrighteous Christians who will never see the kingdom of heaven people like homosexual or adulterers and also those who think they have a passport by being born into a Christian family, the only passport they have is to travel to hell unless they repent and are born again with the seed from above.
Most of the Christian teachers say that Yahushua removed the place of paradise that was in Sheol, they use the following verses however Paul is not an apostle and his verses are extremely contradictory but in either case they do not lend support to any end time teaching.
Ephesians 4:8-10 Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? (10) He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
2 Corinthians 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
2 Corinthians 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
Do you see anything in these scriptures that say that Sheol's paradise compartment has been removed after the tree of Yahushua?
In fact when Yahushua died on the tree and before His resurrection He also descended into Sheol. What did He say to the thief on the tree?
Luke 23:43 And Yahushua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
It does not matter whether the comma is before "today" or after, Yahushua was clear that the thief was going to be in Paradise where He went. Did He say you are going to be in the third heaven? No. If paradise had been shifted to the third heaven then why did Peter say the following; Paradise is another place and is not the same as the throne room of Yahuweh i.e. the third heavens. Simply Paradise, third heavens and Sheol are not the same terms but separate places.
I will say this that according to some historical writings such as the letter of Pontius Pilate and others that when Yahushua was crucified that the graves that were opened and the dead (Matthew 27:52-53) that came to life were mentioned as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob amongst those that were resurrected (we must not link tradition with witness of Scripture). It is believed according to some that they ascended on high. It is also assumed by the same that when people die now they ascend on high, in other words Sheol is only a place for the wicked dead however in my personal opinion I can offer scripture for otherwise that the dead whether righteous or wicked still go to Sheol and await resurrection. I believe Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all went back to where they were before in a safe place in Paradise (parts of sheol) and will be raised on the last day and that goes for Lazarus who was raised by Yahushua also according to traditions died five years later after his resurrection and is in the bosom of Abraham. That bosom in down here not up there in heaven. Yahushua is coming back to live with us here so the idea that we go to heaven is not taught in scripture but we will live in a new heavens and new earth right here, what happens after that Scriptures is silent on that.
Scripture does not explicitly say anywhere that Yahushua took the Saints with Him to heaven after His resurrection. King David a man after Yahuweh's own heart is a case in point. Peter while speaking seven weeks after the resurrection of Yahushua yes that is seven weeks later said this.
Some are taught that all have ascended after Messiah? Really.
Acts 2:29,34 "Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. (34) "For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: `YHWH said to my Master, "Sit at My right hand.
So if King David did not ascend then why should others who are less worthy than right-ruling King David?
Matthew 18:34-35 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. (35) So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
A difficult scripture or signs of punishment for those that call themselves disciples yet are unforgiving and some Christians are like this.
Cleary in the verses above punishment is involved for Christians by Yahuweh by His tormentors for those who are unforgiving to others but where is this punishment? This is here on earth when demons who attack you and they ruin your life by taking away your peace.
The way of Eternal Salvation
John 14:6 Yahushua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Yahushua is what stands between us and hell so either you can come to Him or choose your fate to go to hell for eternity, a decision that no man can change once you are dead.
John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Your life is in your hands but Yahushua can save you from burning and punishment, are you willing?
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Yahuweh the Elohim of Israel has revealed Himself in the person of Yahushua (Jesus) of Nazareth, here is life and death before you and this death is not your physical death but your eternity at stake so choose wisely.
Lake of Fire: This is not Sheol or Hades as such but is a separate place where Sheol will empty into and people will suffer for ALL eternity
Daniel 12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Revelation 19:20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Note the Beast and the false prophet both thrown in. Angels will burn forever but humans will not and will be extinguished or destroyed.

Simon Altaf was chosen by God in 1998 for the special End-Times prophetic calling. A lone voice in the wilderness, one taught by Elohim (Ps 119:120-121). He was told by Yahushua that he is from the tribe of Lewi, one of the original Semites who was called out of Islam to rejoin His people after his long exile from Iran, then India to Pakistan to England will follow one day to back to Ysrael through the hands of Melek Yahushua. His promises are trustworthy and they will come true indeed we simply await our Master’s return.

Hebrew Wisdom – Kabbalah in the Brit ha Chadasha
The book’s purpose is to illustrate basic principles of Kabbalah and to reveal some of the Kabbalah symbolisms used in the New Testament. We look at the Sefirots what they mean and how they apply to some of the teachings in the New Covenant. We also look at the first chapter in Genesis and examine some of the symbols there. We examine the name of Elohim in Exodus 3:14 and see what it means. We examine some teachings of Rabbi Paulos to reveal how he used Kabbalah freely.
The Apocrypha (With Pirke Avot ‘Ethics of The Fathers’)
Read the fifteen books of the Apocrypha to get an understanding of the events both of the exile and of Israel’s early history before Yahushua the Messiah was born. Read Ethics of the Fathers to understand rabbinic wisdom and some important elements of the story of Genesis. The tests, the trials and the miracles of the Temples.

This book also covers women’s niddah laws to give you understanding into women’s ritual purity. Unlike other prayer books Rabbi Simon actually bothers to explain small details that are important and often ignored. This is one book you should not be without.
World War III, The Second Exodus, Y’sra’el’s return journey home
How will the genetic Hebrews be taken back to the land? Are the present day Jews in Y’sra’el of ancient stock? Is there any prophecy of foreigners invading Y’sra’el and inhabiting the land? How will Elohim have war with Amalek and wipe them out and who is Amalek today? Why is the Church so confused about bible prophecy?
How will the end come and why is the world hiding the identity of the true Y’sra’elites? Will there be a rapture or marching back on foot? What happens if we die in our exile? And many more questions answered. The time has come to expose the errors of others.
What Else Have They Kept From Us?
This book is as the result of an e-mail conversation with a believer who asked me some questions and one of her questions upon my answer was “What else have they kept from us?” This was the question that led to this book because instead of answering people with small sections of answers I decided the time had come that a book had to be written to answer and address everything as it happened from the start to the end so that many may see that the deception is real and it’s a deep cunning deception which starts from your TV screens, in your newspapers followed by wherever you go in your daily life. How would a person know that they are being deceived if they do not know what to look for? Its like a Ten Pound note well if you saw the original then you have something to compare the false note with but what if you were never presented with the original and always had the fake in your pocket then you will likely think the fake is real and this is how it is with Christianity today that is simply mixing paganism with truth. A false Ten pound note or a bad tender which will give you no value when you redeem it as I uncover it in the pages of this book. Who was Yahushua, the real Hebrews and Ysrael.
