This is beautiful!
I heard a lot about Bob Jones (1930-2014) about 30 years ago. Mike Bickle especially talked about him a lot. This is the first time I’ve really dived in myself, soaking up every word, transcribing many.
Note: the timing is premature. Bob thought this would happen in two years, and according to one of the comments, Bob apparently had this experience in 2010. It’s been more than two years, and what he said still has not happened. I’ve found this is often because the people reject what God said, so then what should have happened does not because of disobedience. God will not make us obey. It probably should have only taken two years. Maybe we can see this happen in the next two years, or even sooner.
The main thing is that we can do this!
I transcribed many of Bob’s words from this 7.5 minute video, but didn’t include most of his description of heaven, which could be done in another post. It sounds like Bob literally died and experienced this firsthand, instead of this being a vision or a dream. Bob’s words are in italics.
In about 2010, only about 2% of the people were going to heaven! The 2% walked in love! 98% were not.
August 8th of ’75…. I went to the Lord in death. As I come close to the Lord, I saw all the people that was in our line. He asked them only one word: ‘did you learn to love?’ I saw that about 2% of all humanity was in the line I was in. There were 98% that was in another line that was wrapped up in their gods. …
This lines up with Howard Pittman’s experience 40 years ago, when he also literally died and was standing at the gates of heaven when 2.5% of the people were entering heaven. He was also told that if everyone died then, only 2.5% of the people would go to heaven. My post on this that I wrote in 2009:
I’ve said online many times for years now that the percentage is likely lower than what Howard Pittman was told, and only about 2%. I had never heard Bob Jones’ 2% figure until last night. My exact comment that I have often shared on social media when talking about Howard Pittman’s experience:
“I’m estimating that only about 2% of the people (everyone in the whole world) are going to heaven right now, based upon what the Bible really says about who goes to heaven and Howard Pittman’s incredible, actual death experience 30 years ago [now it’s been 40 years]. The figure was 2.5% back then, but that was before OSAS [“once saved, always saved”] kicked in as hard as it now has (including the church in China, from what Michael Brown was told there), and before sexual sin has invaded the church to the degree it has.”
Jesus then told Bob one billion people will follow Christ!
He said go back, because I’m going to bring a billion souls into Myself in one great wave, and I want you to touch a few of the leaders I will use in that time. …
This is where I left out most of Bob’s amazing description of heaven.
He did show me parts of heaven. … In heaven, all five senses are anything beyond what I can tell you. … I felt so secure. I felt literally wrapped in love. I was asking the faceless man who stood beside me: ‘what is this I feel,’ and he said, ‘that is the love of God that surrounds you.’ I said, ‘it’s so white, and it’s so beautiful.’ But he said ‘ it’s also the glory, the glory and the love. That is John 17: ‘the glory and the love He had from the beginning.’
“Now, Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world existed.” – John 17:5
Bob was asked to explain how this relates to us.
… I believe you’ll begin to see the Holy Spirit cleansing out those that will be clean, so clean in their spirit to where they can totally have communion with God. For if your conscience is totally clean, which is part of your spirit man, then you have communion with God. And if you have communion with God the Spirit in you, then you have at your disposal the wisdom of God in your spirit.
I believe there is people whose living rooms, whose mind is being cleaned out to such an extent, their mind, their will and their emotions being brought under the control of the Lord to where it’s going to be Spirit now — not soul, but Spirit.
I see within the next two years of the Holy Spirit really dealing in our conscience that we don’t violate our conscience in any way. If we do, we immediately repent of it. For with a clean conscience, you have communion with the Holy Spirit, and in that communion you have the wisdom of the ages within you. The Holy Spirit is the creative power of God. …
And it will be pure, unadulterated sincere. And it will be in the Spirit: ‘not by power, not by might, but by My Spirit.’ And I see overcomers coming that are the sons of God because they’re led by the Spirit of God. So if you’re led by the Spirit you’re a son.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” – Romans 8:14
To put it another way: that which has been birthed are doves, and a dove represents the Holy Spirit, but it represents peacemakers too. And the peacemakers are the sons and daughters of God. And they are birthed now. And they will have the wisdom of God how to make peace.
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” – Mt. 5:9
