Heaven & Hell
A Right Relationship with Our Heavenly Father
by David Deslauriers and God or Our Heavenly Father

This is by no means, nor could it ever be, an exhaustive or authoritative book on the subject of “Heaven & Hell” or “A Right Relationship with our Heavenly Father.” I have used credible and authoritative sources, relied heavily on various Holy Scriptures and applied sanctified common sense to back up what I have written, much of which is contrary to popular teachings and mainstream Church doctrine. I will challenge your beliefs. I will also encourage you to properly handle God’s word, not the letter but the spirit of what He is saying through the Scriptures, which lies beneath the written surface. I want you to know that what I have written and shared was done with the purest of intentions and to encourage you to continue to grow in your faith. And God willing, I hope to do exactly that. I also want you to know that a human being (i.e. me) who has been so close to the brink of death has no time, energy or patience to lie, no hidden motives, no desire to cause unnecessary divisions or no ambition to write fictional stories to appease the flesh. I was motivated to write this book for two reasons: 1) LOVE; and 2) To encourage you to enjoy “A Right Relationship with Our Heavenly Father,” which just happens to be the sub-title of this book.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.” (Source: 1 Corinthians, Chapter 6, verses 19 and 20 – NIV) “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” (Source: Hebrews, Chapter 5, verses 13-14 – NIV) “Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity...” “And God permitting, we will do so.” (Source: Hebrews, Chapter 6, verses 1 and 3 – NIV) “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (Source: Proverbs 25:2 - NIV)

Leading to my 55th birthday and for 5 years thereafter, a period covering 2010 to 2015, I progressively and subtly sank into a deep depression, culminating in several suicide attempts, including my most recent, almost successful, attempt on October 11th, 2015. I should not be alive today or have been capable of writing this book given the seriousness of this last incident. Driving one’s car, purposely without a seat belt attached, at a speed of about 55 to 60 miles per hour into a solid brick wall should have resulted in sure death. But, miraculously, because of the grace, mercy and compassion of our Heavenly Father, did not die that night although, for all intents and purposes, I should have based on the graveness of my physical injuries. The past six months of my life have never been richer or more blessed. I attribute this positive turnaround and new purpose in my life to our Heavenly Father, and express my thanks and gratitude daily.
