This is an excerpt from Bill & Elaine Cook's recent newsletter (  --T


For the past few months the Spirit of the Lord has been speaking to me mightily. I feel I should share with you the substance of His words.

1—Death of Saddam Hussein: On the evening news of Dec. 30th, we heard that Saddam Hussein had been hanged. The next morning I was typing away on the latest newsletter when the Lord dropped a question in my heart. Since I’ve given Him permission to interrupt me at any time He wants to speak, I stopped and listened. It seemed that a question was dropped into my heart as to the fate that Saddam would meet on the other side.

Suddenly, in the spirit, I was aware that I was seeing on the other side that the souls of every person whom he had sent to his death was standing before him. It seemed he was facing another trial and all these would testify against him. He could not possibly claim innocence before their faces a he had tried to do at his trial here.

I knew he would be facing another judgment I heard, “We are accountable for the deeds done in the body.”

The Spirit spoke, “Though I bore the sin of every man who ever lived, it shall profit a man nothing unless he comes to the altar of God and gives himself back to Me. He cannot retain his sin and his independence and expect to receive My mercy and grace. It is a free gift and is given to those who acknowledge their need of Me.

“Many of My children have misunderstood My ways because they have not known My nature. Either they believe that I am a God of all-vengeance or that I am a God of all-mercy. I am neither of these. I am a God who is just and holy. I make provision, in My mercy, for all to come unto Me. But, to those who despise My mercy, and count My Blood as an unclean thing, they shall know the judgment of a just and holy God. My judgments are true and righteous altogether. A man shall surely be judged for the deeds done in the flesh that have not been repented of nor covered by My Blood.

“Though it takes millennia, yet the evil man shall know no peace until he repents of his way and gives unto Me the life that I gave unto him. Then shall My mercy show forth and My judgments change to those that will cause him to yield up the nature of the adversary whom he had served in this life.

“In Me is found both wrath and mercy sent forth in appointed times to reconcile each sinner unto Myself and to make him the proper child of a king. Ponder My ways and My nature and rejoice at that which I Am! Jn. 3:20,21; Psalm 28:4.

2—The Spirit Speaks to Klaas Kruit: Klaas is a dear friend and brother in the Lord. Three days after I had shared the above word with him, he was prompted in his spirit to write down what the Spirit was saying to him. He couldn’t get to break-fast until he had done it. He says, “It follows your word and is not unlike Sadhu Sundar Singh’s visions on what would happen after our earthly death. He shared:

“I “saw” Hussein in the pit with those who died at his hand and who knew not the Lord. Their faces looked dead and tormented as they had their own loss of a fruitless life (in not knowing the Lord), but who also knew the anguish of being murdered by a tyrant. In the Spirit-realm-time he would be brought before this crowd many times to see them and be reminded of what his hands had wrought.

“Anguish and moans could be heard constantly. Each one was being drawn back to the Lord in a slow process and their inner wrestlings were heard but the murderer could not distinguish this because of his disdain for the true God. Time would go slowly for this man but he would notice that the crowd grew fewer and fewer in size. This would place in his soul the question, “Where are they all going?”

“Every now and then he would see a broken and contrite person who had a great sadness, yet gladness in his or her own countenance. He would ask, “What is going on with you?”

“The Lord is calling me to come up higher with Him.

“You have seen Allah?”

“No. I have heard the voice of Jesus. I have searched long and have come to the end that there is no Allah. But I’ve heard a small voice that has love to it, and I will now follow that voice.”

“And the crowd grew smaller.”
