It was a dream, created by a chemical in your brain called Dimethyltryptamine or DMT.

"Not" What?

Not true. You're mistaking your own imagination for reality. When you are sleeping, your subconscious can't create a fake reality, and you can see/hear anything. I once heard god say "Pass the blunt my home slice" then punch another guy at a bar.

Not true, ma'am. Dreams are just dreams. There's no devil in your dream that's trying to get to you, so don't worry...

For the dream explanation, go read Ninja-Jackie san's answer.

And Cookie's answer is spot on from a Christian point of view.

But when you spoke about experiencing Hell on earth I thought you were talking about something much more horrifying than a nightmare. Dante summed up the meaning of Hell in his Inferno when, over the gate he posted the warning, "All hope abandon, ye who enter here."

Hell is the loss of hope. Despair. And it has many forms ranging to clinical depression in our society (which feel bad enough) to living in a war zone. Think about the atrocities being committed in Syria, Somalia, Columbia, and the rest. Imagine life as a child clinging to life in such places. That's very close to Hell and it has nothing to do with God, thought much of it is related to his followers, of one religion or another.

dozy, your answer regarding cookieroma has me perplexed. Though dreams can be filtered from the activity of the day, and since God used dreams in the Old and New Testaments, why could this not be from God?

Dozy, I agree. Some of those situations is as close to hell as you can get here on earth.
