Preface

God's heartbeat is the salvation of the souls of men from sin and their establishment in His holiness. He is a Master planner and Strategist. He has mapped out ways by which the souls of men and women can be drawn to Him. In this generation of ours we see God employing a special way to convince men of His existence, His love for humanity and the reality of the two ends of eternity: heaven and hell. He takes some chosen people to heaven and to hell to see eternal realities and brings them back to life so they may reveal what they have seen and heard to their fellow men.

God has a purpose for giving these spiritual experiences to men. When apostle John was given divine revelations, the Lord gave him the following instruction:

Revelation 1:11, 19

11 "Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter."

The reader might have been conversant with the revelations in 4 HOUR INTERVIEWS IN HELLby Yemi Bankole and the revelations God gave to Mary K. Baxter in A DIVINE REVELATION OF HEAVENand A DIVINE REVELATION OF HELL. You are about to read a similar revelation God gave to His humble servant, Michael Thomas Sambo.

The Sacrifice of Christ: The Corner Stone of Human Salvation

John 3:16

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Paramount in human salvation is the redemptive death of Christ. There is no salvation outside it.

Hebrew 9:22

"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission."

John 1:29

"The next day John seest Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

Acts 4:12

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Through present day divine revelations God is opening the eyes of many to see the glory of Jesus Christ so that they may know and believe in Him for their salvation

John 17:3

"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

Here is a divine revelation that will give you a clear understanding of the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read it, you will know the mind of Christ and be set aflame with His holiness and passion for the souls of men.

The Scriptures Testify of Jesus

God has given us the Holy Scriptures, His written word. The scriptures reveal God and His holiness to us. The scriptures teach us all truth and make us righteous, holy and victorious in life. However the scriptures do not stand-alone; they refer to Jesus Christ and centre on Him, hence, JESUS is the message of the scriptures.

John 5:39

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me."

We must believe, practice and preach the inspired Scriptures. This is the true worship of God.

2 Timothy 3:15-17

15 "And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

Psalm 19:7-9

7 "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

God's word does not change with time.

Psalm 119:89

"For ever O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven."

The Revelations given in this book exalt Jesus and are scriptural. By them the scripture comes alive and is a living truth to many in our day. Read the scriptural references given in this book prayerfully.

The Holy Spirit Glorifies Jesus

The Holy Spirit gives revelations to men concerning the things of God. Through the revelations of the Holy Spirit we gain insight into the things of God and understand them more clearly. He gives visions and divine experiences to His chosen ones. The purpose of these is to lead men to repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ, and establish them in God's righteousness and holiness. Jesus said,

12 "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall notspeak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall he speak: and He will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify Me; for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you." (John 16:12-14)

All true revelations of the Holy Spirit must glorify JESUS and must not contradict the written word of God. Hence all revelations must be proved by the Scripture to see whether they be of God or not. When a revelation has been scripturally verified and proven to be of God, the message should be received and acted upon as the word of God to us.

1 Thessalonians 5:21

"Despise not prophesying. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."

The revelations given here are scriptural and bring men every-where to conviction and repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:21

"Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ."

These revelations achieve God's purposes as stated in

Ephesians 4:12-16

12 "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind ofdoctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love."

(i) they perfect our knowledge of God's word, works and ways in certain areas and thus promote faith in God, commitment to righteousness, holiness and service.

(ii) they serve as tools for ministry among sinners and saints in the world.

(iii) they edify the body of Christ.

(iv) they reveal clearly the truth taught in Scripture. The scriptural truth clearly revealed makes erroneous beliefs of some in the body of Christ to be manifest for correction. Hence scriptural revelations serve for the unity of the faith.

(v) they promote the true knowledge of the person of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

(vi) they help to mature believers.

(vii) they bring the believers to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

(viii) they preserve the believers from the corrupting influence of false doctrines and false teachers that are so rampant in our day.

(ix) they promote scriptural truth, love, unity and spiritual growth of the body of Christ.

Unity of the Spirit, the Word, and the Blood

1 John 5:8

"There are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water (word), and the blood: and these three agree in one."

Hence the redemptive sacrifice of Christ, the written word of God and the revelations of the Holy Spirit work together for human salvation, establishment in holiness and entry into heaven. Have the above nine facts in mind as you read this:

Personal Account of DIVINE VISITATIONS AND REVELATIONS IN OUR TIME.

33 "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!

34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been His counselor?

35 Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

36 For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to Whom be glory for ever. Amen."

Romans 11: 33-36
