Brief History Of Kenneth E. Hagin

Kenneth E. Hagin (August 20, 1917 – September 19, 2003 ) was the son of Lillie Viola Drake Hagin and Jess Hagin.

Kenneth E. Hagin Spoke On How He Became A Christian

He was born with a deformed heart and what was believed to be an incurable blood disease. He was not expected to live and at age 15 became paralyzed and bedridden. Kenneth had a near-death experience which resulted from a malformed heart – a condition he was born with. It happened once again and this occurrence lead to his conversion

My heart quit thumping. This deadness spread to my feet, my lower legs, my knees, my hips, my stomach, my heart and I jumped out of my body.

I didn’t lose cognizance; I jumped out of my body like a jumper would jump off a plunging board into a pool. I realized I was outside my body. I could see my family in the room, however, I couldn’t get in touch with them.

I started to slip down, down, into a pit, similar to you’d go down into a well, cave or cavern. What’s more, I kept on dropping. I went down feet first. I could turn upward and see the lights of the Earth. They at last blurred away. Haziness included me circuitous – murkiness that is darker than any night man has ever observed.

The more distant down I went, the darker it moved toward becoming – and the more smoking it moved toward becoming – until at long last, route down underneath me, I could see fingers of light playing on the mass of obscurity. What’s more, I went to the base of the pit.

This transpired over 60 years prior, yet it’s similarly as genuine to me as though it had happened the prior week last.

When I went to the base of the pit, I saw what made the fingers of light play on the mass of murkiness. Out before me, past the entryways or the passageway into heck, I saw mammoth, incredible orange flares with a white peak.

I was pulled toward hellfire simply like a magnet pulls metal unto itself. I realized that once I entered through those entryways, I couldn’t return.

I was aware of the way that some sort of animal met me at the base of that pit. I didn’t take a gander at it. My look was bolted on the entryways, yet I realized that an animal was there by my correct side.

That animal, when I attempted to back off my plummet, took me by the arm to escort me in. When he did, away over the obscurity and the haziness a voice talked. It seemed like a male voice, yet I don’t have a clue what he said. I don’t know whether it was God, Jesus, a holy messenger or who. He didn’t talk in the English language: it was an unknown dialect.

That place just shook at the few words he expressed! Also, the animal grasped his hand off my arm. There was a power like a suction to my back parts that pulled me back. I coasted far from the passage to damnation until I remained in the shadows. At that point, similar to suction from above, I glided up, head first, through the obscurity.

Before I got to the top, I could see the light. I’ve been down in a well: it resembled you were routed down in a well and could see the light up above.

I came upon the yard of my grandpa’s home. At that point, I experienced the divider – not through the entryway, and not through the window – through the divider, and appeared to jump inside my body like a man would slip his foot inside his boot in the first part of the day time.

Before I jumped inside my body, I could see my grandma sitting on the edge of the bed holding me in her arms. When I got inside my body, I could speak to her.

I felt myself slipping. I stated, “Granny, I’m going once more. You’ve been a second mother to me when Momma was sick.”

My heart halted for a second time. I jumped out of my body and started to slip: down, down, down. Goodness, I realize it was only a couple of moments, yet it appeared to be an unending length of time.

There more distant down I went, the more sizzling and darker it progressed toward becoming, until I came back again to the base of the pit and saw the passageway to heck, or the entryways as I call it. I was cognizant that that animal met me.

I attempted to back off my drop – it appeared as though I was coasting down – yet it appeared as though there was a draw that pulled me descending. What’s more, that animal took me by the arm. When he did, that voice talked again – a man’s voice. It was an unknown dialect. I don’t have the foggiest idea what he stated, yet when he talked, that entire spot just shook. That animal grasped his hand off my arm.

It resembled suction to my back. I never pivoted. I just returned gliding into the shadows of obscurity. And afterward I was pulled up, head first. I could see the lights of the Earth above me before I came up out of the pit. The main distinction this time was that I came up at the foot of the bed. For a second time, I remained there. I could see my body lying there on the bed. I could consider Grandma to be she sat there holding me in her arms.”

[Kenneth bids a fond farewell to his family]

I left a word for every single one of them, and my heart halted the third time.

I could feel the dissemination as it cut off. All of a sudden my toes went numb. Quicker than you can snap your fingers, my toes, feet, lower legs, knees, hips, stomach and heart went dead – and I jumped out of my body and started to slide.

Until this time, I thought, this isn’t transpiring. This is only a visualization. It can’t be genuine!

However, at that point I thought, “This is the third time. I won’t return this time! I won’t return this time!” Darkness included me indirect, darker than any night man has ever observed.

Also, in the obscurity, I shouted out, “God! I have a place with the congregation! I’ve been immersed in water”

I sat tight for an answer, yet there was no answer; just the reverberation of my own voice through the dimness. Furthermore, the second time I cried somewhat more intense, “God! I have a place with the congregation! I’ve been submerged in water!”

I hung tight for an answer, however, there was no answer; just the reverberation of my own voice as it resounded through the murkiness.

I came back again to the base of that pit. Again I could feel the warmth as it beat me in the face. Again I moved toward the passageway, the doors into hellfire itself. That animal took me by the arm. I proposed to set up a battle, in the event that I could, to keep from going in. I just figured out how to back off my plummet only a bit, and he took me by the arm.

Express gratitude toward God that voice talked. I don’t have the foggiest idea its identity – I didn’t see anyone – I simply heard the voice. I don’t have the foggiest idea what he stated, yet whatever he stated, that place shook; it just trembled. What’s more, that animal grasped his hand off my arm.

It was much the same as there was suction to my back parts. It pulled me back, far from the passage to heck, until I remained in the shadows. At that point it pulled me up head first.
