    On November 23rd 1998, Bill Wiese had an out-of-body experience in hell. It was neither a dream nor a near death experience, but a “vision”.

With electrified senses, Bill Wiese experienced the searing flames of hell, total isolation, a putrid, breathtaking stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons, and finally, the strong hand of God lifting him out of the pit.
