Gerald claimed that in 2016, he temporarily died after he had a heart attack.

During that life-changing moment, Gerald said he visited hell before returning to life.

"I saw the real hell and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy."

Yes, you read that right.


In his viral TikTok video that has over 514.3K likes and 54.4K shares, Gerald recalls this moment.

"My spirit left my physical body. I thought I was going upward, because I thought that I had done so much good in this lifetime and helped so many people, and made so many decision that were Godly decisions. But as opposed to me going up, I wen down. I went literally into the centre of the earth. That's where hell is."

Gerald described seeing a man walking around with what he considers a hellhound.

The most surreal part of this TikTok story was that the priest recalls how Rihanna's song, "Umbrella" and Bobby McFerrin's song, "Don't Worry Be Happy" were played as a form of punishment.

"It just blew me away. Every lyric to every song is to torment you [for] the fact that you didn't worship God through music when you were on the Earth...you chose to worship Satan by repeating the lyrics that he inspired to come into the Earth."

To finish the roughly 5-minute video, he explains how he escaped hell.

"I lifted up out of Hell, and I came back on the Earth."
