The surgery had to be delayed. On March 9, 2009, when he finally could have surgery, a doctor told him that everyone his age who got that surgery did not survive. He wanted to get the surgery anyway because he was in extreme pain. During the operation, his spirit left his body and was taken to Heaven. What Richmond experiences there will open your eyes.
This is based on the video series posted up on YouTube by Kay Boachie on Dec. 15, 2011. This series is in English, translated from its original language. (Click here to watch it on YouTube.) Kay translated (into English) Richmond’s original testimony which was posted on YouTube by “kobina ofosu” on June 19, 2011. I have tried my best to be as accurate as possible to Kay’s translation, but I am not perfect (see Works Cited at the end). Thank you for reading.

Now, three hours into the surgery, Richmond screamed in pain. The pain in his heart was like a sharp sword and he could not hold on any longer. Suddenly, he blacked out. The last thing he remembered on Earth was screaming in pain.

He saw a group of angels, with serious expressions, picking up things from the ground and putting them into a sack or bag. Once it was full, they lifted the bag up and took it in the same direction Richmond’s guide was leading him.
Richmond said: “I also saw pastors in Hell and they were also, likewise crying out.” (Part 7, 4:20).
(A Christian can turn away from God. See Revelation 21:7-8, Hebrews 3, Hebrews 10:25-31, Luke 16:13-15, Mark 9:42-50, Revelation 3:5, Matthew 13:1-23, John 15:1-7, 2 John, Ezekiel 33:13, Romans 8:13)

Richmond will describe four groups of pastors he saw in Hell and what their exact sins were that brought them there.
There were several different groups of pastors in Hell.
The first group he saw was comprised of pastors who had slept with women from their churches. They had fornicated and committing adultery with women from their churches and when they died, they found themselves in Hell. Their screams and cries filled Richmond’s ears. (Matthew 5:27-30 and Galatians 5:19-21).
[Galatians 5:19-21 says:
" Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."]
(God does miracles today. See James 5:13-18 and Mark 16. But, the devil wants to mimic God and have false Christians perform lying signs and wonders. See 2 Corinthians 11:12-15 and 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9. See Hebrews 10:29 and see other scriptures about the falling away here at this link.)
The third group was composed of pastors who were murderers. They were in Hell because they had killed people, shedding innocent blood. (See the Appendix section at this link to see verses about the falling away.) (See Matthew 5:21-26).
(Note: Pastors can turn away from God and shed innocent blood by way of false teaching, neglecting the truth, by advocating the killing of the innocent (babies), and by harboring bitterness and hatred. Anyone else can do the same if they give over to these sins.)
They arrived at the place where the elders were worshiping Jesus Christ. There Richmond heard a loud voice saying, “The time is set. The time is set. The time is set.” (Part 9, 0:12). Then, another voice said, “The Blood. The Blood. The Blood…”
An angel took him back to the Earth, to his body, and Richmond opened his eyes and wept. He had come back to consciousness after four days of having been gone. It was a Thursday. He had left his body on a Monday during the surgery. All that time in Heaven it had only been daytime. There was no night, day, morning, or evening in Heaven. His time in Heaven seemed “like a flash.” It was very fast.
IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.
1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Acts 4:12: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5.)
If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.
Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).
John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
Jeremiah 29:13 says: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
John 14:6: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
