Letter from Hell

Letter from Hell

This is pretty deep and definitely worth reading! You just can’t keep it to yourself, you’ve got to tell somebody about the love of God! Be blessed!


One day a woman named Louise fell asleep in her bed and dreamed a very fitful dream. She dreamed that someone in Hell wrote a letter to her, and it was to be delivered to her by a messenger.

The messenger passed between the lakes of burning fire and brimstone that occupies Hell and found his way to the door that would lead him to the outside world.

Louise dreamed that the messenger walked to her house, came inside, and gently but firmly woke Louise. He gave her the message, saying only that a friend had written it to her from Hell.

Louise, in her dream with trembling hands, took the letter and read:

My Friend,
I stand in Judgment now,
And feel that you’re to blame somehow.
Never did you point the way.
You knew the Lord in truth and glory,
But never did you tell the story.
My knowledge then was very dim;
You could have led me safe to Him.
Though we lived together on the earth,
You never told me of the second birth,
And now I stand this day condemned,
Because you failed to mention Him.
You taught me many things, that’s true.
I called you “friend” and trusted you,
But I learn now that it’s too late,
You could have kept me from this fate.
We walked by day and talked by night,
And yet you showed me not the Light.
You let me live, and love, and die,
You knew I’d never live on high.
Yes, I called you “friend” in life,
And trusted you through joy and strife.
And yet on coming to the end,
I cannot, now, call you “My Friend.”

After reading the letter, Louise awoke. The dream was still so real in her mind and sweat dropped from her body in pools. She swore she could still smell the acrid smell of brimstone and smoke from her room.

As she contemplated the meaning of her dream, she realized that as a Christian, she had failed in her duty to “go out to all the world and preach the gospel.” As she thought of that, she promised herself that the next day, she would call Marsha and invite her to church with her.

The next morning she called Marsha, and this was the conversation:

“Hello Bill, is Marsha there?”

“Louise, you don’t know?”

“No, Bill, know what?”

“Marsha WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT IN A CAR ACCIDENT. I thought you knew.”


Fellow Christian, is this your testimony? Are you witnessing to your friends that you are with everyday? Or will there be friends of yours in Hell, asking you why you did not tell them about JESUS?

As your friend. . .

If you don’t know Jesus, here’s how:

If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 – 10)

If you have not done so, just pray this prayer:

“Dear God, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is your son and that He died on the cross for my sins. Jesus, forgive me of my sins and come into my heart and become my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus’s name, Amen.”

PS. If you are a believer – new or old, send this to others and let them know you are a true friend.

  1. This story is to good & teach us what christians doing for our lord
    Lord said- Go & tell to everyone how grateful I am
    Bt we are busy in our life & neglects the lords voice
    Really it’s too good story.

  2. What a stupid thing to publish.
    Why would a God not allow someone into heaven because the did not believe that he was the almighty creator of all things?
    What about the thousands of years that humans have been on this Earth before this God was ever thought up? Christianity is only by definition 2,000 years old.
    I also like the fact that while burning in hell Marsha still finds time to fit a rhyming structure into her letter.

  3. Smith, I have a question for you in response to your questions? How could a just god let an unjust person into a perfect kingdom? It makes no sense. If God does allow an imperfect person into his perfect kingdom, then one of two truths are necessary:
    1. He isn’t just, because he doesn’t punish people for their crimes, or
    2. heaven isn’t perfect, because it contains imperfect people in it. You can’t have something perfect with an imperfection in it.
    I could respond to the second point, but I’m not even sure you’re going to read the first point. If anyone posts a follow-up comment just to show me that they read this, then I’m willing to write more.
    Smith, I hope I haven’t turned you off in any way.

  4. Hi Nick,
    I know it may seem like we’re just trading questions but in response to your post I need to ask. Why does not believing in ‘God’ (or not believing in the correct god) make you an unjust person?
    I would also like to ask how heaven can be perfect if you do not have all those you love and care about with you?
    Not only that but you know that they they’re burning in eternal fires and being tortured beyond anything any of us could imagine.
    It’s not my Idea of perfection.
    Hope to hear from you.

  5. I have to agree with Smith. What father would let their kids burn forever because they don’t admit that he is their father? A father would save his children regardless if they acknowledge whether or not he is their father. I would never submit my son to something so ridiculous.

  6. @ everybody here

  7. Comical.

    Medieval-derived concepts of fire n’ brimstone used in a campaign of scare tactics to frighten people into being better people.

    Yeah, there’s a good motivator.

    Feel free to come join the rest of humanity in the 21st century when you’re ready.

  8. Issue of Hell is reality. I stand a chance to witness dat to people. In a yr 2010 one-afternoon, as i was sitting alone in my apartment meditating about the life styles of this world how i should suit-in in-order to succeed then the next thing i heared was God speaking to me vy sound an clear. He said to me; do not folow the wrld to commit sin for surely I have maked a place of torment under-earth with thick darkness in which the wicket would go in. So 4r dat tim til now i can’t doubt anymore.

  9. A Friend says: Believers or unbelievers, please consider this: What if those of us living in the 21st century like John D, took an objective viewpoint looking into the science of the bible – interpreting it literaly rather than as made up stories to make us better people? Then working on the scientific evidence alone through time finding too many coincidences from a 2,000 year old book as to completely defy the odds of chance? The story (letter from hell)is impossible because of Romans 8.1, but should cause us to pause and engage non-believers to at least ask “Jesus if you really exist, show me the truth”. H&H are real places why risk eternity for the sake of argument?

  10. Believers: I believe there’s one God, one powerful man, one hero, and one holy spirit that can save wipe our tears away from our sins and suffering. Our sins are forgiving forgive like God forgive us for our sins. Love your sister or brother why not. Love Jesus but you don’t see him??? How could you love someone you can’t see him everyday and not love someone you see everyday. Love Gods creation, care for the poor, help those who are bonds, spread Gods word, be patient, don’t lie is not nessassery to lie. What give you right to lie. Where does the lie takes you??? The truth will send you free… More lies builds up more confusion. Live your dreams move on forehead unless you walk backwards move forehead like your walking in a straight line go somewhere in life is a career and stay focus life will be like a rollercoster. a video games is like life is not fear. Life will hit you in the face. You’ll probably will hit rock bottom maybe hit your face in the ground to make you realize that what you had and wanted more is want you lost. Stay bless and God Bless you :)

  11. To answer Smith and James and any other unbeliever. You are thinking in human terms not Godly ones. Man brought evil in to the World when Adam sinned against God by breaking
    His rules. We all bear this mark of wrongdoing called Sin as a result, and nothing we can do on Earth can wash us clean of Sin. Jesus is one of the three parts to God referred to as the Trinity, he was man and God and died in forgiveness of all mans sin. All you have to do is believe in him and He represents you before God and the price is paid. God demands payment for breaking his perfect rules and if you choose to reject salvation in Jesus Christ then God has no choice but to punish you because you dont have representation before Him, if He didnt punish sin He could not be called a righteous and Holy God. ( you could be a really nice person but does that mean the Police wouldn’t arrest you if you did something against societies rules), It’s mans fault not God, Heaven is a perfect place void of sin, God cannot let it enter his perfect realm. He made the rules and we all get the choice as to whether we follow them or break them. Also Smith, the bible teaches all good things come from God, love happiness joy etc, hell is a place where you are cut off from God so there is no love joy etc, that is the torture and the punishment, but it’s eternal. The only thing we really have freedom to choice on in life is whether we believe or we don’t, but it’s worth thinking, what if your wrong?

  12. Very touching story. Teaches a lot. Please fellow christians lets pray to GOD to save a lot of people through us.

  13. What is presented here is not the truth of the Gospel that Christ gave to His Apostles and Bishops.

    Firstly, nobody is “in hell”, not yet. The final judgment has not taken place. The resurrection of the dead for final judgment has yet to occur. Unless they have sought God’s grace the souls of the dead are bodiless, and in Hades awaiting that great and terrible day. So there is still hope for them! We can still pray for our departed friends, that God will have mercy on them (2 Maccabees 12:38-46). And God is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

    Secondly, you can’t save yourself from hell just by praying a prayer. Salvation is a process of transformation that begins with baptism. It’s not a legal contract with God!

    And finally, hell is not a place that God created. We create hell ourselves by separating ourselves from God, and if we do not know Him, then at the resurrection when He finally reveals His Glory to us, we will be in torment. This is why we need a relationship with God and to be known by God through Jesus Christ.

    It is a disgrace when Protestants continue to place blood-guilt on their flock based on lies and heretical teachings. Just because you don’t preach at your friends doesn’t mean you are responsible for them being in hell if they die!

  14. It’s quite stupid. God is a dictator for making people go to eternal torture for not believing in god. Jesus only founded the Christian religion and made himself a godly figure. The goingtohellifyoudontbelieveingod part is only a advertiser so his religion can get famous.

  15. Romans 1:20 states, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Nobody will be able to stand before God and say that they never knew anything about him. Plus it is not that we are good, we are not justified by our own works. If God chose to send every last one of us to hell, he would be justified in doing so. It is only by his grace that he doesn’t.

    Jesus stated in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the one who made these claims, not Christians. If you think that is just plain foolishness or heretical, your argument is with Jesus himself, not those who proclaim his name. It is through Jesus, not through religion that we are cleansed. If we could be cleansed by religion, then any religion would do.

    I will sound stupid to a lot of people, but will not let that bother me (1 Cor. 2;14 – But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned). I suppose you thinking I am stupid is a small price to pay to not have your blood on my hands (Ezekiel 33:8 – When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand).

    Jesus is the only way. I say the unapologetically, but with a heavy heart. Knowledge of God’s word will either save you or condemn you.

  16. Guys especially you who think hell is not real, be careful because not believing the bible is a sin. Daniel 12 vs 2 proves hell n lake of fire is real. Luke 16 talks about hell. don’t be the 1 who will write a letter from hell saying hell is real. please don’t be so foolish

  17. again I just want to say. it is appointed for men to die once and the comes judgement which means wn you die judgement comes soon after death.
