Return Ticket From Hell
For the most part, i thought i was in heaven. I was greeted by this friendly guy who smelled like vanilla and had a bright spark emitting from his body. He stretched out his hand to me and said, "welcome to hell" I said "welcome to wha.....hell, excuse me sir but you have the wrong soul!" He laughed and looked at me and said, "Hell is not as bad is many people dream it up to be, and the choice is yours, you will be given a tour of the facility and you are free to indulge in any of the activities you choose. Then if you decide to stay, all you have to do is sign your name in the guest book and then its all fun from there on." So basically he gave me a chance to spew and view hell and then decided if i wanted to stay or go to heaven. Ok, i decided to take a peak in hell and see where all the fire was blazing. He opened a huge gate just like what many Christians would call the pearly gate and i couldn't believe my eyes what was beholden to them.
It was a huge magnificent looking city that was made out of gold. My eyes had never seen such beauty before, the sparkles, the cleanliness, the fresh air caressed my aching lungs. "What!" I shouted, "am i dreaming? there is no way this could be hell" "Yes it is he replied, lets go see" He held out his and and took mine and i felt like a child protected. There were people walking all over in beautiful colored clothing almost looking unreal. Animals were living together peacefully, it was almost like a clone of what heaven called paradise. He took me to what he called a "gentleman's club" and i was shocked beyond my years! "What the hell!" i shouted. He laughed and said, "Yes! what the hell". It was as though i had moved off the yellow glimmering streets into a strip club. There were women of every nationality and the men were enjoying themselves. "How can this be i asked?" "In hell, you are given a life time of pleasure and fun, nothing is good or nothing is evil in hell, we do as thou wilt."
I Began To Like It In Hell
I was there, shocked, happy, laughing and chatting with this man i knew nothing about. "So who are you?, i asked. "And why did you bring me here?" "I am nothing but a messenger of the prince himself. I help people make a choice as to whether they want to come here where its fun and exciting and you get to continue living your life as you did on earth or go up to heaven where its all about rules rules and more rules." I stopped walking and held my hand on top of my head as my sight came in contact with a building so magnificent it was like reaching up to the heavens. "What is this building i inquired?" Oh, this is where our guest stays until they decide to be permanent residents, then we move them over to something much more fiery! "Lets go inside," As i approached, the magnificent silver gates opened up, at the top of the gates there were 30 pieces of silver large medallions with what looked like the eye of Horus in the center. It was breath taking. I entered the compound and lust took me over, i wanted all what i saw, beautiful ladies swimming inside crystal clear pools, mouth watering foods being served, disco lawns where music pumped and people laughed dance and had fun, i couldn't believe that i was actually in hell.
I wanted it all, i wanted to stay, i wanted to stay in hell. He showed me to my room that night and i was tired as "hell". All the party, the drinks, the women were too much, and the good part is that you can do this everyday forever. I kicked off my shoes, threw down my body on a so comforting bed and fell asleep. Then i began to dream, i saw my wife who i loved so dear that had passed on three years ago after she lost the fight against cancer. "Dorothy!" i shouted as i rant to hold her.
"Frank, what are you doing here? what are you doing in this soul tearing place?"
"What are you talking about Dorothy? It has been so nice here, there is no crime, no illness, no racism, just fun and party, and you get to do that everyday honey"
"Frank, wake up, you have always told me to look deeper than the skin and i urge you to do the same, the devil is a liar and a cheat, hell could never be good. He is tempting you and promising you just like he tempted Jesus and promised him the world, a world which already belonged to his father. Now wake up frank, be strong, look deeper than the surface and walk in the right path. wake up frank, wake up frank, FRANK WAKE UP!"
I jumped from my sleep and looked around, my beloved Dorothy was not really here. Dorothy was an Angel of a person, if she did not choose to be in Hell, obviously hell is wrong.
Greeted By Satan's Agents At The Door
As i opened my door to find that "kind" gentleman who brought me here to question him and and decline his invitation to stay in hell, i saw several odd looking men waiting for me at the entrance of my room. "Can i help you?"
"The Guardian wishes to see you" They stared at me as thou they were soulless and just a shell. They took me down to the Guardian and he went straight into business. "Have you decided to stay in this wonderful kingdom?, please sign here"
"Sorry Sir, hell is a no go for me, it seems nice and all that but i think heaven may be the right choice for me" "WHAT! you imbecile, heaven is all lies, rules and worship, hell is fun, food, sex, do whatever you want and you choose heaven? He stood up and i could see fire began to emit from the top of his head, the city began to strip down from its golden beauty and was literally blood red, the people that looked all comfortable and happy transformed into what they really were, devils minions. The placed stenches of rotting and burning flesh and you could here death screaming continuously. As i turned and looked behind me i saw what looked like a demon beast rising from the earth, I was shaking all over, i cowered in fear and stooped and hid my head under my arm.
"Stupid fragile human, what has God ever done for you, why do you want to give him your soul?"
I suddenly felt a uplifting hand placed upon my shoulder and i looked around and saw Dorothy. She was shining bright like a star and this time she really had wings. I stood up and hugged her, i felt an energy and goodness ran through me like i had never seen before, and my eyes were opened.
I looked up upon the beast and saw that it had several flags in its hands, and upon its head it had several crowns and the tail of a dragon.
I began to proclaim. "Unclean beast, you are a lire, a murderer, a cheat and a killer of men. Your existence is only powered by the evil of mankind itself, you feed upon lust, fear greed, cowardice and selfishness. Today you find none of that in me. You have shown me that your promise of a similar paradise is false and is simply a lure for souls to feed your over zealousness ever since you were casted out of the heavens. You build empires on earth, you promote wars, famine and disease, all the things which depraves the human spirit and then you pitch upon them like a vulture and drain what little life they have left. Unclean beast, I am a son of God and therefore you are beneath me. Now get thee behind me and let me ascend". I could hear the beast scream and suddenly a tunneling light descended upon me and Dorothy, Then in the blink of an eye we were in hell no more.
"Thank you Dorothy, once again you have proven to be the pillar which i lean on. Are we now in heaven?"
"No Frank, I will be, but its just not your time yet. You have a job to do, a mission to accomplish. You must teach others about the tricks of Lucifer and enlighten them so they may see the truth and enlighten others, when your mission is completed, we will meet again." My eye were now open.
