Pastor and motivator Gerald Johnson claims he went to Hell in 2016 and is on a mission to share his story with the world. Johnson, who goes by @geraldajohnson1 on TikTok, took to social media to describe what he saw in vivid detail.
Pastor Says He Saw a Burnt Man, Demons, Heard Demonic Music in Hell
Johnson says it was February 2016 when he experienced what he thought was a heart attack. His spirit then left his body, making him think he was ascending upwards into Heaven. However, to his horror, he witnessed himself going to the other place, “literally into the center of the Earth.”
Johnson recalls seeing a man who was wearing a chain that was held by a demon.
“There was a man on all fours like a dog. He was burnt from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet, and his eyes were bulging out,” said the pastor. Johnson likened the man to “a dog in hell.”
The pastor also remembers hearing popular music being sung, but it was demons who were doing the singing. He then said that he believes much of the music created in the human realm is inspired by drugs and altered states of consciousness, which are related to demonic forces.
“They actually come in contact with demons who give the lyrics for the purpose of controlling people on the Earth,” Johnson said. “There, every lyric to every song is to torment you as to the fact that you didn’t worship God through music when you were on the Earth.”
He added that “music is very controlling,” and said some people were in Hell because they listened to demonic music instead of music that worships God.
Gerald Johnson Says His Lesson Was to Forgive Others, Not Expect God to Avenge on His Behalf
Notably, Gerald Johnson was perplexed as to why he was being shown Hell. He thought that his spiritual practices had led him to lead an exemplary life of goodness. But then he said that he “lifted up out of Hell” and God spoke to him.
“I actually saw the real Jesus. I saw him,” said Johnson. “He said, ‘You have been secretly upset with the people that hurt you. You have been hoping that I would punish the people that hurt you… These are not your people. These are my people.”
Johnson said that God told him to focus on a specific assignment and to teach others accordingly. It’s implied that the assignment is to share what Hell is like and teach others to forgive.
“The root of it is that, although I did good, I gave a lot to people, I did a whole lot of good things. The thing that I had in my heart was unforgiveness towards people who had did me wrong,” he concluded.
Pastor Gerald Johnson followed up his story with two more videos in which he answered questions about his experience in Hell.
The story hit hard for a lot of people, as could be seen in the comments. Regardless of if you believe in Heaven and Hell, it seems that everyone could practice a little more forgiveness.
