We are giving a synopsis of the various accounts and testimonies of the 1920s outpouring in China among the orphaned children of the Adullam Rescue Home.
Not only did the children of Adullam have visions of heaven and angels, but they also experienced visions of hell and the kingdom of the devil. They saw the warfare between the angels and demons, especially in the mid-heavens, and how the angels prevailed in the lives of believers through their faith and praise.
Those children who were under the anointing also often saw demons by other children who were drowsy and could not pray. They saw them entering in through windows or doors, and they’d also observe some reclining under a table or the couch.
Over and over again the children also had visions of hell and the lake of fire. The first time any of the children were under the anointing of the Spirit they would usually have a vision of hell. They were bound in chains by demons and taken through a region of darkness. Some children could hear demons all around them. If taken far, they could see a dim light in the distance which proved to be reflections from the lake of fire. Some of them were forced so near they could see the lake of fire ahead. All the time they were pleading the blood of Christ, asserting that they would not obey and would not be subject to the slavery of their captors. They believed Jesus would surely save them, and before they reached the lake of fire He indeed would always intervene.
The Scriptures teach that hell is a place of blackness of darkness, and the devil’s angels and the ungodly are now reserved in chains of darkness awaiting judgment.
“And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day…raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever” (Jude 6, 13).
TAKEN TO THE EDGE OF THE LAKE OF FIRE
These children not only saw the darkness in hell, but were led to the edge of this great lake of molten fire in a semi-dark pit from which arose clouds of smoke. When the smoke settled low, the fire in the lake was less distinct. When the smoke lifted a little, the burning lake with its flames could be distinctly seen.
“When the children were peering down into this pit in hell we saw them taking a firm hold on some piece of furniture or getting down on their hands and knees, cautiously bending forward to peer into the infernal regions. They looked a moment and then drew back, afraid lest they fall in. They were horrified at what they saw. Then very cautiously they looked again and drew back. Sometimes the children lay flat on their stomachs, lest they slip and fall while looking over the brink of the lake of fire.
“The lost were seen going into hell. Some fell in, some walked over the brink, and some were bound by demon chains and cast into hell by demons. One boy saw groups of the wicked bound in bundles, ready to be cast into this furnace of fire.
“When the fire abated and the smoke settled down the moans of the miserable could be heard. When the fire at intervals increased in intensity and the smoke lifted a little there were shrieks and wails of agony. “
Oh dear one, hell fire is real. Let us work diligently to rescue the perishing in this late hour before they step over the ledge and are lost forever.
A CONVERSATION WITH ONE IN HELL
In Luke 16:19-31 Jesus gives an account of the rich man and Lazarus. The rich man finding himself in hell had a conversation with father Abraham. We should not be surprised or skeptical about such things for they are written in the Scriptures and settled forever. The Bible provides sufficient evidence and is enough, but God in His mercy has throughout the ages God left us with many witnesses. These children are such ones. Also, when Christ reigns as King of kings upon the earth, the redeemed nations will look upon the lost.
“In the lake of fire were oceans of hands reaching up for help. Those below pled with those looking in upon them to come to their rescue. We could hear the children talking to them just as you can hear someone talking over the telephone and get but one end of the conversation. We could hear one end of the conversation like this:
“I can’t help you.”
“No, I cannot do anything for you.”
“But when you were alive you would not obey the gospel.”
“No, it is too late; before you got here I preached to you, but you made fun of me and despised Jesus. Now you know I told you the truth.”
“No, I cannot do anything; this is the judgment of God.”
“If you had obeyed, you would now be enjoying heaven with us.”
After some such conversation, the children were led away to enjoy the presence of Jesus in heaven or the glories of the golden streets of the Paradise of God.
One tribal village boy saw his grandmother in hell, whom he had tried to win to Christ. She was once a sorceress and murderer who had rejected the gospel in her village and also caused others to reject it. This village boy also saw his little sister and believing aunt in heaven. Other children also had these types of vision of relatives in heaven and hell.
There was no vision of anyone in heaven or the name of anyone written on the mansions by the golden streets who did not trust in Jesus. All who were in hell were unbelievers. One night the Lord spoke through a young boy in wonderful prophecy and said, “There will be no one in heaven except those who believe in the gospel.”
After the Lord had taken the children through wonderful systematic lessons in the Holy Spirit, they nearly all came at last to the parting of the roads. In this vision, repeated until it seemed the impression could never be forgotten, the one in vision seemed to be standing by the cross at the parting of the two great roads. The one road was the narrow way of life that leads to heaven and glory; the other was the broad way to hell and destruction.
Great, busy, hurrying multitudes hustling with business, carrying great loads of sin and rushing along with the affairs of life, were passing in endless streams and countless numbers. The child was the preacher at the crossroads. Again, only one side of the conversation was heard:
