Press Release for Australia

Christian mystic’s first-hand account of Heaven and hell

(Press Release for Vassula Ryden’s 2017 Australian Tour)

Christian mystic Vassula Ryden will be visiting Australia in March 2017 to speak about her recent best-selling book “Heaven is real, but so is hell.” and to be part of the 3rd Australian True Life In God retreat held in Melbourne March 17th to the 19th.

Vassula, who has been called a “prophet for our times”, has more than 1 million Facebook fans and more than 100,000 Twitter followers. She recently toured the United States to promote this book and had wide media coverage in the US and Canada including appearances on Fox News, Insight and Malcolm Out Loud.

“Heaven is real, but so is hell” is a first-hand account of the supernatural world of God and His Angels, and of satan and his demons. Sometimes harrowing, yet always hopeful, “Heaven is real, but so is hell” gives us a glimpse of God’s love and justice, and of what is to come.

“All my life I’ve seen the spiritual realm. I see Angels, and Saints, and other supernatural beings. I see the souls of dead people…

“It’s an invisible world that surrounds us – a world of Angels, and demons and powers and forces that affect every moment of our lives. I see that world, and seeing it changes the way I see our material world. This is a story of amazing, incredible experiences and encounters with the Divine – with God – and what they mean to me, to you, and to the whole world…”
she says.

In the book, Vassula writes about the messages she has received from God since 1985; messages of peace and love, which God has called “True Life in God”. These Messages are a mystical communication by God of His love for all of us so that we come to know Him and grow in intimacy with Him. God also wants the unity of the Christian churches.

Vassula is still receiving these Messages, which have now been translated into 42 languages. Since 1988, Vassula has toured 81 countries and has given over 1,022 presentations drawing large crowds. In India and Brazil she attracted more than 100,000 people to her talks, and over 500,000 people in the Philippines. She has the support of over 100 Church leaders across all Christian denominations.

This is Vassula’s fourth trip to Australia, following earlier visits in 1992, 1998 and 2001. On this trip, she will address free public meetings in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, and Brisbane and meet various media commitments before travelling to the Solomon Islands (see details overleaf).

Vassula Ryden receives no personal royalties or fees from her work. Any proceeds are distributed to over 25 Beth Myriams (charity houses) which provide food and medicine to the poor around the world, including an orphanage in Kenya and Buddhist orphans in Dhaka in Bangladesh.
