Richmond Gyimah:
His Encounter with

(Feel free to copy this article and share it. But, please don't modify it if you do.)

Richmond Gyimah was sick. A persistent, very rare,
intestinal problem he had since a child was only getting
worse. In 2008, he went to have it checked out, but the
doctors said there was nothing wrong with him. A year later,
his intestinal pain was getting almost unbearable, and in
2009, at the age of 23, Richmond was admitted to Korle Bu
Hospital, a prominent hospital in Ghana (in Western
Africa). There, at the Korle Bu Hospital, his condition

The surgery had to be delayed. On March 9, 2009, when he
finally could have surgery, a doctor told him that everyone
his age who got that surgery did not survive. He wanted to
get the surgery anyway because he was in extreme pain.
During the operation, his spirit left his body and was taken to
Heaven. What Richmond experiences there will open your

The Testimony of Richmond Gyimah: His Encounter
with Heaven and Hell

(1) The Surgery

Intense pain pierced through his chest, most intense at his heart, and Richmond screamed. He
had been through three hours of surgery (at the Korle Bu Hospital) after being given anesthetics,
but pain had suddenly shot through his heart. The words of the surgeon just prior to the surgery
echoed through his mind: no one with this kind of condition at your age has ever survived
this kind of surgery.

Richmond felt he had no choice. The pain in his
abdomen had only been getting worse and while
he was at the hospital, it grew in intensity. He
knew he could very well die, but he was willing
to take that risk because the pain from a rare
intestinal condition had been with him since his
early twenties. Besides this, Richmond told the
doctor that he is a Christian and said he has his
faith and hope in God, not in statistics.

Now, three hours into the surgery, Richmond
screamed in pain. The pain in his heart was like
a sharp sword and he could not hold on any
longer. Suddenly, he blacked out. The last thing
he remembered on Earth was screaming in pain.

(2) Richmond Leaves the Earth

Before one could blink an eye, Richmond found himself rapidly zooming through clouds like a
rocket. Then, suddenly, he was in a beautiful garden filled with trees, flowers, and a paved path.

Richmond started walking down the path and hadn't gotten far before a large being suddenly
stood before him. The being asked him what he was doing there. Richmond told him that he was
in a hospital and that now he was there in this beautiful

Then, the tall being introduced himself as an angel of God.
He said it was not a mistake for Richmond to find himself
in that garden.

(God has revealed the things of God to us by His Spirit.
See 1 Corinthians 2:9-16. See also Joel 2:28.)

As he and the angel walked along, they encountered some
altars along the way at intervals. The third altar they came
to had what appeared to be fresh blood poured out upon it.
Richmond learned from the angel that the blood was not the blood of an animal: it was the blood
of Jesus Christ. The angel told Richmond that this blood was pleading for mankind and that it
was speaking.

Blood that is 2,000 years old should have dried up by now, Richmond realized. The kind of
blood he saw was fresh, so very, very fresh.

The angel said that the blood is so fresh because it is still has the power to redeem or save
mankind on Earth. It appeared as fresh new blood, as if the precious blood of Jesus Christ had
just been shed on it (see Hebrews 9:12.).

I knew, Richmond said, from then that there is an ultimate indeed an ultimate power in this
universe. (Part 4, 7:00). We have an ultimate or a sovereign power in this world which is
above or which exceeds all other powers. (Part 4, 7:09). Because, I knew that ordinary blood,
once it is shed and once air blows on it, it dries up or clots in no time. But the precious blood of
Jesus Christ, even though it had been shed 2,000 years ago, is still fresh. Its made me know that
God is indeed God and God is the all-powerful or has the ultimate power in this world.


The angel of the Lord told him to hurry up because there was little time and he had a lot of things
to show Richmond in Heaven. They arrived at a place where he saw a very large house made of
glass. He saw a lot of people who were wearing white
clothes which were all identical. They were very happy.

In the same place, I lifted up my head and I saw two
thronesthey were both occupied. I asked the angel of the
Lord, Who was sitting on both thrones? He said to me,
The first one you see is Abraham. Hes the one sitting on
that throne. And, the second one you see isMoses who is
also sitting on thatthrone. (Part 4, 9:22.)
Richmond asked the angel if he was permitted to talk to
anyone in that place. Richmond wanted to talk to the
people who he described as joyous. The angel gave him

Before he talked to the people, he asked the angel for the name of the place he was now at. The
angel said, Here is Paradise. (Part 4, 9:55.)

The angel told him that this place is for those who died in the Lord Jesus Christ and: This is
the place where their souls come. (Part 4, 10:11).
Richmond then asked one of the people, a man clothed in white, how he came to be in Paradise
(or Heaven). The man told him that he lived his life for Jesus all the days of his life on Earth. He
gave himself to Jesus Christ and also obeyed the commandments of Jesus and he did not deviate
from the commandments of Jesus. When he died, he found himself in Paradise.

In answer to a question posed by his interview, Richmond told the interviewer (in the YouTube
video) that he did not see anyone he knew in Paradise.

The angel of the Lord told Richmond that they needed to hurry up and move on because he had
other things to show Richmond. Richmonds tour guide led him down a road. On this road
Richmond would encounter three groups of angels doing different tasks.

The Three Groups of Angels

He saw a group of angels, with serious expressions, picking up things from the ground and
putting them into a sack or bag. Once it was full, they lifted the bag up
and took it in the same direction Richmonds guide was leading him.

Richmond asked the angel, Where are we going? (Part 5, 5:25). The
angel told him he would find out when they got there. Richmond cannot
describe exactly what the angels were doing and why they were picking
up things and putting them into bags to take away because he had never
seen anything like it before.

The second group of angels, he came across on the road, was bringing
things from the place Richmond and his guide were going to and was taking these things to the
place Richmond and his guide had just left.

A little later, Richmond and his guide came across a third group of angels. A few of the angels
were working, but the majority of them were sitting around, doing nothing. He asked the angel of
the Lord why (1) the first group was serious and busy picking up things to take away; (2) why
the second group was busy taking things back; and (3) why the third group of angels was divided
between busy angels and idle angels.

The angel explained that the first group of angels was gathering the prayers of the righteous
believers. These prayers had arrived in Heaven from Earth. The second group of angels was
taking the answers, from God, to the prayer requests and bringing them to the righteous believers
who had been praying.

The third group of angels had the responsibility of gathering the thanksgiving and praise to God
from the Earth. The angels who were idle had nothing to do because many saints (or Christians)
in the Earth were not giving thanks and praise to God. The few angels who were working
gathered the comparatively small amount of praise and thanksgiving that some of the saints had
given to God.

Richmond said: Angels sit idle when no thanksgiving is being rendered to God. (Part 5,

As Richmond and his guide went along, they came upon an indescribably beautiful place. He
saw that everything increased in beauty as he and the angel got closer to the place the angel was
leading him to.

The Royal Palace

At last, they arrived at a huge, beautiful building with an inscription on it: The Royal Palace
(Part 6, 1:04).

They entered the building and saw a person sitting on a white throne. Richmond asked the angel
who he was. The angel of the Lord told me that this is the Lamb of God who takes away the
sins of mankind. He is the one who is sitting on the throne.

After the angel told him that, Richmond said, Jesus Christ. When I mentioned the name Jesus
Christ, suddenly, immediately they all bowed down to worshipall the angels bowed down, and
they began to worship. (Part 6, 2:04).

When he asked his angel guide why the angels all bowed down, he said, It is because of the
name, Jesus Christ. When we heard it, we had to bow down to that name. (Part 6, 2:25).

Richmond quotes from Philippians 2:10-11.

Philippians 2:10-11

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in
earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the

Richmond saw the angels bow before the throne of Jesus Christ, the Lamb. He looked at Jesus
Christs face and saw light radiating out from it. His face was full of glory. Richmond wanted to
walk toward Jesus and spend more time in the Royal Palace with Jesus, but the angel told him he
had other things to show Richmond and that the time was running short.

He also saw the 24 elders worshipping Jesus Christ, praising Him. Each elder took his turn to
bow prostrate before the throne. When each did, he set his crown on the floor and praised God
with his face to the floor. He was there for some time before he stood up and rejoined the other
elders. Then, the next elder would take his turn. This continued for all the elders as they praised
God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

It was in this place that I got to know what true worship is all about. I really saw true
worship, great worship being done by these elders in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. That
is where I learned what true worship is all about. (Part 6, 6:50).

The angel told Richmond they had to hurry up because he had other things to show him. The
angel brought Richmond to another place. It was a building with a door. No one was allowed to
enter through that door, but Richmond and the angel had been given special permission, that
time, to enter.

(3) The Visit to Hell

When they had passed through the door, Richmond
realized they were descending down into the
ground. [Based on what happens next, we know that
Richmond and the angel had left Heaven and now they
were headed toward a new destination, far away from
Heaven. For scripture about Hell, please click here.]

Richmond says that the place they were in [likely a
tunnel] was very, very dark. Ive never seen such
darkness in all my life before. (Part 7, 1:32). The
place was very dark. We kept on moving on. Then, I
began to feel heat coming from the place. (Part 7,

He began to smell something awful coming from the place far below him that he and the angel
were heading toward. When he asked the angel about it, the angel told him he would find out
when they arrived.

As we went toward this place, I began to hear screaming and cryingcoming from the place. I
became very afraid. When we got closer, I saw fire all over the place. (Part 7, 2:25).

He saw fire everywhere and people crying out loud and screaming. He describes the fire as
consuming fire (Part 7, 2:50).

He saw a woman in a cage. The woman was crying out for mercy, but no mercy was granted to
that person. (Part 7, 3:10). After crying awhile, the woman started cursing God. A demon
picked her up and threw her against the wall and she continued to cry and scream and curse God.

Richmond said that there is no mercy in Hell.

Richmond Reveals a Shocking Truth: He Saw Pastors in

Richmond said: I also saw pastors in Hell and they were also, likewise crying out. (Part 7,

When Richmond asked the angel guide why pastors were in Hell, the angel told him that the
pastors who were in Hell did not rely in the power of the Holy Spirit, the power of God, when
they were doing ministry on Earth. They were rather relying on occultic powers for their church
and for their ministry. They were not genuine pastors. They did not use the power of God. They
were using occultic powers in their ministry. (Part 7, 4:20).

He said: So, I saw these pastors screaming and crying out
loud in Hell. I saw a great deal of pastors in Hell. (Part 7,

Richmond will describe four groups of pastors he
saw in Hell and what their exact sins were that
brought them there.

The angel of the Lord explained to Richmond why the
pastors were in Hell.

There were several different groups of pastors in Hell.

The first group he saw was comprised of pastors who had slept with women from their churches.
They had fornicated and committing adultery with women from their churches and when they
died, they found themselves in Hell. Their screams and cries filled Richmonds ears.

The second group was made of pastors who did miracles, signs, and wonders. This was not by
the power of the Holy Spirit, but by occultic power, the power of demons. They had chosen the
power of the devil instead of the power of God to do so-called miracles. They had sold their
soul to the devil and had turned away from God.

The third group was composed of pastors who were murderers. They were in Hell because they
had killed people, shedding innocent blood.

The fourth group of pastors loved money. Richmond said that God did not call them into the
ministry. He said they did not know God and that they were in the ministry to make money.

And, they were using the name of our Lord Jesus Christ for material gain: they were lovers of
money. (Part 8, 8:21).

Because money was their god, they are in Hell.

Richmond said: Beloved, I was very sad when the angel showed me all these pastors in Hell
(Part 8, 8:45).

As they went further, Richmond sees what he compares to a sea or an ocean of fire. It covered
the people. I could hear screaming and crying. (Part 8, 9:05).

He began to feel some of the heat. It was very hot in that place. (Part 8, 9:20). Richmond told
the angel of the Lord that he wanted to get back because he could not stand the heat
anymore. (Part 8, 9:34).

(Like lava, hellfire is very hot and it is never put out. Mark 9:43.)
The angel took him by the hand and they ascended back up the same way they had come and
arrived in Heaven.

(4) Back in Heaven

They arrived at the place where the elders were worshiping Jesus Christ. There Richmond heard
a loud voice saying, The time is set. The time is set. The time is set. (Part 9, 0:12). Then,
another voice said, The Blood. The Blood. The Blood

The angel of the Lord now took me to a window, and behind the window was an altar with
blood on it: an altar of sacrifice. And on that altar I saw blood on this altar of sacrifice. (Part
9, 0:12).

Richmond said that God wants to come back to the Earth to destroy the Earth because people
are not repenting; people are not giving their lives to Jesus Christ; people are not worshiping
God. People are thinking that everything is a fairy tale and they are just living their lives
anyhow. They are not repenting and they are not turning to God. (Part 9, 0:12).

Richmond said that the only reason God has not come yet to judge the Earth is because the
blood of Jesus Christ is still pleading and begging God for mankind. (Part 9, 2:19).

Gods time is set already to come for His bride, but the blood of Jesus Christ is still pleading for
mankind. Because, if God is to come [now], a lot of people are not ready. People are not
repenting. People are not turning to God. People are not living for God. People are not
worshiping God in truth and in Spirit. (Part 9, 3:00).

Richmond said that the only reason God has not come for his Bride
and to judge and destroy the earth is that the blood of Jesus Christ is
still pleading for the lost (including those who call themselves
Christians who dont know Gods name).

The angel told Richmond that God was giving him a second chance.
Richmond was to tell people what he had seen and what he had
heard. He was told to tell people that the time is up, the time is up,
and that Heaven is real, ... and Jesus Christ is alive, and the blood of
Jesus Christ is still speaking. (Part 9, 5:00).

(5) Richmond Gyimah Heads Back to Earth

An angel took him back to the Earth, to his body, and Richmond opened his eyes and wept. He
had come back to consciousness after four days of having been gone. It was a Thursday. He had
left his body on a Monday during the surgery. All that time in Heaven it had only been daytime.
There was no night, day, morning, or evening in Heaven. His time in Heaven seemed like a
flash. It was very fast.

On Earth again, Richmonds body was still getting worse. Even so, he knew that he was going to
be well and get out of the hospital, by Gods grace. Just as the angel had told him, God returned
him to good health and he was able to share his amazing testimony of life after death.

Richmond said this to his audience: Now, this is what Id like to tell you viewers and also
hearers. I want you to know that whatever the Bible has said or whatever the Bible is saying is
true. Whatever the Word of God, the Bible, has said, it is true. I want you to also know that man
cannot help you. Man cannot help you. Only God can help you. If you put your trust in man, he
fails you. Only God can really help you. You cannot put your
confidence or your trust in man. Only God can really help you. I also
want you to know that we are living in extra time. We are living in
extra time. (Part 9, 8:51).

Richmond explains that the only thing keeping God from coming to
take His bride and destroy the Earth is the blood of Jesus Christ, which
is pleading for mercy so that the lost could be saved.

Richmond said, If you are to die today, where would you find your
eternity? (Part 9, 11:08).

Would you like to find out how to Know God's Name

IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.

1 Timothy 2:5: For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man
Christ Jesus;

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.

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and
shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5.)

If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ
has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again
Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.

(The Bible is TRUE. See image source.)

Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).

John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus
Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Jeremiah 29:13 says: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me
with all your heart.
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.
