For God is a loving, merciful God, that will help us if we want help.
Denyse Roberts
You need to read a bit or a chapter and put the book down so you can absorb what you've read and then go back another time to continue.

This book has answered many questions I have regarding God and help solve some of those mysteries.

This book is just what I've been looking for as an answer to our troubled times. God has always intervened in history when His children fall into trouble, and this day and age is no exception.

What is His most common method of intervention? He selects people to be prophets; prophets who go out and speak His message to the world. Vassula is one of these; she travels endlessly to tell people what has been spoken to her.

What is the typical response to a prophet? Misunderstanding, persecution, ridicule, sarcasm, etc. Instead of looking at the good fruits that true prophecy brings, and their are many in this case; detractors insist that what Vassula says is somehow contrary to scripture.

Our Lord Himself asks us to judge a tree by its fruit. If you read this book with an open heart, you will clearly be moved to a closer relationship with God and with His written word in the Bible.

Format: Hardcover
While the number of five star reviews for this book shows that there are people hungry for God, this book is filling them with occult teachings that are condemned in the Bible. (Leviticus 19:31, Deuteronomy 18:10-14)

Vassula Ryden is a medium who uses the occultic practice of automatic writing to receive messages from entities she calls `Yahweh', `Jesus', `Mary', and `Daniel'. These messages contradict the Bible, contain bad theology, and misguide the reader in the way of salvation. She claims to see angels, demons, the souls of the dead (pg. 7), and that at times they have possessed her (pg. 140) and spoke through her (pg. 139). She also claims that people have seen Jesus' face superimposed over her own (pg. 135).

She admits she never studied theology or catechism (pg. 91) and that once when reading the Bible "the words were incomprehensible" to her and that "it was a tormenting experience" (pg. 27)

Throughout the book she writes of people in the church who refused to accept these messages were from God and who tried to warn her of their real source, but she doesn't listen. She does however admit that the devil "often uses people for his purpose" and that he "sometimes will carry out his evil actions with subtly so as not to be exposed". This is exactly what the Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 11:14 when he writes that the devil masquerades as an angel of light.

Unknowingly, She admits this to be the case with her when she writes a church pastor telling him that his God is not her god (pg. 69)

For those people yearning to be brought closer to God, this book is not the way to go, instead there is no better place to look than the Holy Bible.

As soon as you start reading this book, it gives you glimpses of the spiritual world through the author's experiences. It all seem so unreal !!! but yet it is so real!! The author gives you an account on how Jesus really is and describes His Love for us, also it let us know that Satan is well and alive on planet earth!!!
Satan's best lie to humanity was that he does not exists, and boy..... he really succeeded !! well almost.....until you read this book you really understand how he and his minions work, and by the Grace of God how we children of God can fight against his clutches. This book also depicts the trials the author went for purification in order to be in front of God, He is pure and thus we need to be pure to be in His presence. Most importantly this book gives you glimpses of Jesus messages of True Life In God to Vassula. God does not stay still, He is leaving His Throne in Heaven to come to our rescue through His messages, He is our Saviour!!

Format: Hardcover
From: MJA:
I Just finished reading Vassula's book Heaven Is Real...It is such an authentic report of her mystic experiences with God! I was so delighted to find that I also lived similar encounters with God, but NO visions. After 29 years of doing things my own way, I was a wretched wreck, soon saved after going to Confession (being Catholic)and was embraced by Jesus in His loving arms immediately, without a single reproach by Him, enveloped entirely by Love. It was like St.Paul's conversion in a way and it changed the course of my life in one glorious hour January 3, 1977. I gave Jesus Christ my life the next day in a Charismatic prayer group: "Lord I give you my life, do with me as you will"! Yes, I had perfumes of roses, incense also for the next 2 years and gave my testimony where asked in retreats etc,...Gone was the emptiness in my heart: I had found HIS WAY, LOVE and TRUTH I had searched for so long. This happened when I was 46 and I am now 81...Still following HIM, the LOVE of my life..."GOD IS LOVE" and only wants us to love Him above all. Yes, I also battled with demons without seeing them, smelled their sulpher from their presence, at times...All suffering is indeed for purification of our souls and we cannot avoid the Cross.

This book, "Heaven is Real..." is God's Gift for everyone, no matter what we believe or not believe: God's love messages to ALL His children, as each one of us like the Prodigal Son and Daughter,with our heavenly Father running toward us to open the door to His Kingdom.

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."
