More About the Author

Vassula is Greek, born in Egypt and belongs to the Greek Orthodox Church. Her husband's professional obligations meant that she had to live most of her life in third world countries. Vassula could never have imagined that God would unexpectedly reveal Himself to her in Bangladesh in 1985, as she considered herself totally unworthy. The supernatural grace to receive God's Word in such a way is called Prophecy. It is God that dictates, inspires and reveals to Vassula His words of Wisdom.

Although Vassula had never received any catechetical instruction or theological formation, God, in His graciousness, educated her and formed her in His Heavenly Courts. She was commanded by Him to be like a loud book and deliver His messages, that He named 'True Life in God', to the world. They are an urgent call to stop rebelling against God and make peace with Him, amending our lives through repentance. They are a call to reconciliation, love and unity among the churches. Many of the messages remind us of Jonah who cried out to the city of Nineveh to repent. They contain major warnings to mankind in danger of destruction and must not be taken lightly.

In these messages, our Lady too reminds us that the earth is in danger and will suffer with Fire. That God's wrath cannot be sustained any longer and it will fall on us because man refuses to break with sin. That God's mercy all of these years were to draw as many as possible to Him, extending His Arm to save them but very few only listened and understood. Our Lady says that we are very near the events that have been foretold by God. That His mercy will not hold much longer and that the time is coming where everybody will be tested and the earth will spew out from within it rivers of fire. The people of the world then will understand their worthlessness without having had God in their hearts. And finally, that the time has come where the household of God will be tested and those who refused His mercy will taste God's Fire.

We are asked to offer sacrificial love and steady prayers committing ourselves more to God. If anyone serves and immolates himself as an offering, the judgment that is to come by Fire will not be so severe upon them for in their spirit they will be enjoying the call of God that brought them to life.

Through all these years, Our Lord has tried and is still trying to awaken a true understanding in all of us by repeatedly giving us reminders: recalling what was said in the past by the Holy Prophets and His own Commandments. God will not allow us forever to offend His Holy Name and commit sins against the Holy Spirit, for which 'there is no forgiveness in this world or the next' (Mt. 12:31-32). So, repeatedly, He has been warning us that the world, living without Him, is self-destroying itself in its apostasy and provoking His Holy Justice to fall on them.

Prophecies such as the destruction of the Twin Towers, the Tsunami of 2004, the fall of communism in Russia and other prophecies, were foretold to Vassula and have all come true. If the world, will not repent and the churches continue to be deaf to His callings for reconciliation and unity, a unity in diversity, a great chastisement of fire will be sent to the world.

However, when God speaks in these messages we do not fail to notice, apart from the warnings, the tone of hope that He is giving us. Yes, He would reprimand us many times, since He is Father, and like any father reprimands his children when they do wrong, so does our Father in Heaven, but He does it with love for He is Love and He created us out of love to return this love to Him.

These messages reveal God's intimate and paternal image towards His creatures and what He asks from each one of us is to become intimate with Him too so that we get to know Him. Nevertheless, He reminds us never to forget that He is Holy and asks us to put into practice the "fear of the Lord", too.

In these messages God is trying to revive in us what is dead. This is why He pours out His Holy Spirit on us to bring us back to Him, to live a true Life in Him. He promises us that soon there will be an outpour of the Holy Spirit on humanity, such as never before in history, a sort of a second Pentecost, that will transfigure the whole world and renew it. This is the hope we are all looking for. In the end, the Lord with our Blessed Mother will triumph.

There are many parts of Scriptures from the book of Revelations and the book of the Prophet Daniel that have been unsealed to us by Jesus Christ in these messages.

Why is God so anxious to reveal Himself so powerfully again in our times if it is not so that He saves us? When He says in one message: "I look at the earth today and wish I never did ... My eyes see what I never wanted to see and my ears hear what I dreaded to ever hear! My heart, as a father, sinks with grief. I fashioned man to have my image, yet they have degraded themselves and today so many of them have taken the likeness of the beast! (the devil). My heart pains me, for I see to the ends of the earth and what I see is not according to my heart's desires ... your Father rules everything but not your freedom.... and man has perverted his freedom..."

In this message the Lord sounds disappointed. But how could He not be when He sees that His own have turned more into having a rationalistic spirit, into materialism, which led them to apostatize. Even nature rebels against us from the wickedness of the world, the Lord said.

Unfortunately, too few realize the urgency of our Lord's warnings and many are judging harshly with criticism the messages and the messenger. One must not forget the truth contained in this paradox... the one who is despised becomes in reality the one who identifies most with Christ... This example suffices to teach us which one is more loved of God, the one who throws the insults or the one who receives them?

Rev. Ljudevit Rupcic, a theologian, professor of Exegesis wrote about the messages and Vassula's experiences: "If people answered to God's calling for constant prayer, the message would spread throughout the world the note of thankfulness to God. If one accepted that there must be unity between the churches; already there would be a hope of the fulfillment of Jesus 'promise - 'one fold and one shepherd' (Jn. 10:16). If people accepted God the way Vassula recommends, He would already be "everything in everyone" (1Cor. 15:28). If people took seriously God's warning about Satan, the latter would already be banished from men's hearts and from the world. If people would heed God's calling to conversion all men and women would be saints already. If everyone shared in Vassula's experiences, the personal history of each one, and consequently the history of all humankind, would be a song of Love."

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Canon John Twisleton on 29 April 2013
Format: Hardcover
Reviewers are more systematic than prophets and so are priests. We work to order whereas prophets challenge the very ground we stand on. I don't know what heaven or hell will be like so a book that promises `an eyewitness account' shakes me and will rattle others by its perceived arrogance. One that starts by saying `I see the souls of dead people...just as clearly as you see living people' threatens no reason or system, hardly commends engagement and sounds occult. I persisted though because I recognise in this book and the True Life in God movement it chronicles a word from God shaking the church down to the unshakeable foundation of his immense yet pain filled love.

Since 1985 Greek mystic Vassula Ryden has received words alleged to be from Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary that have resonated with tens of thousands of Christians and brought many non-Christians to read the Bible and come to church. This book tells the story and, with its supernatural emphasis, seems as much designed to draw Christian outsiders than please insiders, especially in its prophecies about bishops and priests `holding to the outward form of godliness but denying its power' (2 Timothy 3:5).

The book needs reading in the context of the True Life in God messages overall which are found on the internet at [...]. These are given through Vassula as words from God for healing and reconciliation in the world, warning churches frustrating that vision by their disunity and individual Christians failing his purpose for their lives through spiritual apathy. Heaven is real but so is hell is a wake up title summarised in the story given of a man telling Padre Pio he didn't believe in hell only to be told `you will believe it when you are there!

An interesting account on how God works and enable me to know God better and love God more!

On the other hand, remind me not to fall into temptations, and live holy!

God is free to choose anyone to remind us the teaching of holy bible.

Why? ... well for the last two months I have had my own messages coming to me about why so many in this world are suffering whether in their work, finances, family, partnership and relationships you name it we are suffering, I was lead to read the Bible the book of Revelations, I began reading this book again (I had tried previously), in the midst of Chapter 19 I said out loud to the lord, 'forgive me for putting this to you lord, but this is written in so many parables it is very hard to read and understand'. This morning I woke up with an emptiness in my own life questioning my purpose for being 'here' - by midday I was guided to a site which showed me this book title so I looked for it on Amazon and found it then read a few chapters but skipped to the end where it refers to the scriptures and ... what I had been reading from the book of Revelations was smiling at me in this ladies wonderfully written version, leaving me with no doubt of that famous saying 'Ask and it is Given'. I believe God wants all of us to 'Get it' and will find ways to communicate with us so we do understand.

If you care about your family, are open minded, and a truth seeker read this book.
Lets face it the world is in a shambles, economic turmoil, corruption in high places, scandals are numerous, everything is upside down. The book is written in a very readable down to earth way.
I have also read the absolutely stunning book "True Life in God" which this book is an ideal introduction to.

The proof is there for anyone to check this lady predicted the collapse of the twin towers ten years to the very day. So correct have other prophecies that it is frightening. The truth is always challenging. There are parts in "Heaven is Real and so is Hell" actually are very sobering.Its not all doom and gloom we are reminded of the realities of the spiritual world which this world dismiss
as non existent.We are reminded we cant do without God.There is a strong message for protestants catholic and orthodox to work in a spirit of love and unity without a losing our own identity.

I highly recommend this book it is with good reason it is already a bestseller....

I believe that these messages are authentic. As I look around the world today I see a major battle between good and evil playing out.
The life if Jesus is the template for living a life of meaning and purpose. Jesus distilled His messages to Love God with all your heart and soul. And to love your neighbour as yourself.
But these commands are not being honoured as the world pursues a path of hedonistic pleasure and reckless pursuit of materialistic achievements which threaten our existence.
The messages confirm that every person must choose God or mammon. The darkness is very prevalent and so many don't want to listen to God whose Love, Compassion, Mercy and forgiveness offer the keys to eternal life with Him.
So many seem determined to choose hell!

By Ashtar Command on 27 Nov. 2014
Format: Hardcover
Richard Tarnas is a spiritually oriented author based in California, where he teaches at a private college, the California Institute of Integral Studies. His worldview seems to be broadly Jungian, and probably also has affinities with Steiner's Anthroposophy and Aurobindo's teachings. Tarnas' most acclaimed work, "The Passion of the Western Mind", is apparently used as a college textbook in the United States. This book, "Cosmos and Psyche" is less popular outside strictly spiritual circles, and was even attacked in the Wall Street Journal! Tarnas attempts to prove a variant of astrology, and expands on themes already touched upon in an ealier essay, "Prometheus the Awakener", reviewed by me elsewhere.

I read some chapters of "Cosmos and Psyche", and skimmed others. The book is incredibly dense. Unfortunately, the more I read and reflected, the less convincing "Cosmos and Psyche" became. The author, Richard Tarnas, believes in astrology and claims to have found a large number of correlations between earthly events and planetary alignments in the sky. There are many problems with his method, however.

First, he discusses a large number of such alignments: Uranus-Pluto, Uranus-Neptune, Pluto-Saturn, Uranus-Neptune-Pluto, etc. Second, he believes that their influence is usually contradictory and multivalent. Thus, it's relatively easy to find *some* correlation between earthly events and the motion of the planets. A liberating revolution with a darker side (and there are many of them) can be correlated with any number of planets! So can just about any cultural or literary development.
