It has been my joy and pleasure to have briefly shared some of what transpired during Marietta Davis’s 9 -day trance, specifically her visit to heaven. Now it is with a sense of fear and consternation that I share the second phase of Marietta Davis’s visit when she was allowed entrance into the regions of darkness. Warning: Graphic images and their Biblical reality may be disturbing to some.
Her angel escort was not with her during her descent into hell. She was only informed that her visit would be a most solemn lesson for her. Suddenly all the brightness departed as Marietta descended in great fear toward a deep pit and abyss. As she attempted to pray she found that she could not express herself. Remembering her lack of faith and consecration on earth she exclaimed: “Oh, for one short hour on earth to prepare my soul and secure fitness for the spirit world.” As Marietta continued to plunge downward into deep darkness soon she discovered that she was in the abode of the wicked dead. She heard bursts of unholy laughter, ridicule, sarcasm, obscenities, and terrible curses. There was no water to quench thirst and fountains that appeared were only mirages.
Fruit appeared on trees but would burn the hand that plucked it. The very atmosphere carried elements of wretchedness and disappointment. As she looked on this fearful scene a spirit whom she had known on the earth approached her. He said: “Marietta, we meet again. You see me a disembodied spirit in the place where those who inwardly denied the Savior now abide when their mortal day has ended.”
A DISEMBODIED SPIRIT SPEAKS FROM THE REGIONS OF THE DAMNED
Here is the rest of what this disembodied spirit said to Marietta:
“My life on earth was suddenly brought to a close, and as I departed from this world I moved rapidly in the direction prompted by my ruling desires. I desired to be courted, honored, and admired on the earth – to be free to follow the perverted desires and inclinations of my proud, rebellious, and pleasure loving heart. This is a state of existence where every indulgence is permitted to my soul and we live without restraint where religious instruction finds no place.
“With these desires I entered the spirit world, passed into the condition adapted to my inward state, and rushed here to this awful place you now see. I was welcomed as you have not been, for at once I was recognized as one who fit this place by those who abide here. They do not welcome you for they discern in you a desire adverse to the passions that prevail here.
“I found myself endued with the power of strange restless motion. I became conscious of a strange perversion of the brain and my cerebral organs became subject to a foreign power, which seemed to operate by absolute possession. I abandoned myself to the attractive influences around me and sought to satisfy my cravings for pleasure. I reveled, I partied, I mingled in the wild and voluptuous dance. I plucked the shining fruit, I satisfied my nature with that which appeared delicious externally and inviting to my sight and smell. But when I tasted it, all was loathsome and a source of increasing pain. And so unnatural are the desires perpetuated here that what I crave I loath, and that which I delight in tortures me. Every object around me appears to have a controlling power to dominate me with cruel enchantment over my bewildered mind.
THE LAW OF EVIL ATTRACTION
“I experience the law of evil attraction. I am a slave of deceptive and discordant elements and their vice and evil. Every object attracts me. The thought of mental freedom dies with the dying will, while the idea that I am a part of a revolving fantasy takes possession of my spirit. By the strength of evil I am bound, and in it I exist.
THE RESULT OF THE VIOLATED LAW
“Marietta, I feel it is vain to attempt to express our deplorable state. I often inquire, is there no hope? And my sense replies, ‘How can harmony exist in the very midst of discord?’ We were advised of the consequences of our course while in the body, but we loved our way better than those that exalted the soul, and so we have fallen into this fearful place. We have originated our own sorrow. God is just and good. We know that it is not the vindictive law of the Creator that we suffer. Marietta, it is our own condition from which we receive the misery we now endure. The violation of the moral law by which our moral natures should have been preserved in harmony and in health is the primary cause of our state.
“Do you startle and are you surprised at the scenes? Know then that all that moves around you is but the outer degree of deeper woe. Marietta, no good and happy things abide here with us. All within is dark.
“We sometimes dare to hope for redemption, still remembering the story of redeeming love, and we inquire and ask: ‘Can that love penetrate this place of gloom and death?‘ May we ever hope to be made free from these desires and inclinations which bind us like chains and passions which burn like consuming fires in the unholy elements of this wretched world of Hades?”
