This is a very good study for all that have a thirst for Fathers word. the hidden books, a fantastic look into place named Paradise. Let's set the stage with a little of the New Testament.
The book of Luke
Luk 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
Luk 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Luk 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luk 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luk 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luk 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luk 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luk 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Luk 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
Luk 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Luk 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

SECOND BOOK OF ESDRAS
75 Then I answered and said,
"If I have found favor in your sight, Sovereign, show this also to your slave; whether after death as soon as each one of us gives up his soul, we shall be faithfully kept at rest until those times come when you begin to renew the creation, or shall be tortured at once."
76 And he answered me and said,
"I will show you that also; but you must not associate with those who have shown scorn, or count yourself among those who are tortured.
77 For you have a treasure of works laid up with the Most High, but it will not be shown to you until the last times.
78 For about death, the teaching is: When the final sentence goes forth from the Most High that a man is to die, when the soul departs from the body to return again to him who gave it, first of all it prays to the glory of the Most High;
79 if it was one of those who scorned and did not observe the way of the Most High, and if those who have despised his law, and of those who hate those who fear God,
80 such spirits shall not enter dwellings but wander about
thenceforth in torment, always grieving and sad, in seven ways:
81 The first way is that they have scorned the Law of the Most High.
82 The second way is that they can no longer make a good repentance, so that they may live.
83 The third way is that they will see the reward destined for those who have believed the agreements of the Most High.
84 The fourth way is that they will consider the torment destined for them in the last days.
85 The fifth way is that they will see that the dwelling-places of the others are guarded by angels in profound silence.
86 The sixth way is that they will see that some of them will pass over to be tormented henceforth.
87 The seventh way, which is worse than all the ways that have been mentioned, is that they will waste away in shame and be consumed in disgrace, and wither with fear, at seeing the glory of the Most High before whom they sinned while they lived, and before whom they are destined to be judged in the last times.
88 "But of those who have observed the ways of the Most
High, this is the order, when they shall be separated from this fragile jar
89. In the time when they lived in it, they carefully served the Most High, though they were in danger every hour, so as to keep the Law of the Lawgiver perfectly.
90 Therefore this is the teaching about them:
91 First of all, they see with great rapture the glory of him who takes them up, for they will rest in seven orders
92. The first order is that they have striven with much toil to conquer the wicked thought that was formed with them, so that it should not lead them away from life to death
93. The second order is that they see the labyrinth in which the souls of the ungodly wander, and the punishment that awaits them.
94 The third order is that they see the testimony that he who formed them has borne to them, because when they were alive they faithfully observed the Law which was given them.
95 The fourth order is that they understand the rest which they now enjoy, gathered in their chambers, in great quietness, watched over by angels, and the glory that awaits them in the last days.
96. The fifth order is that they exult that they have now escaped what is corruptible and will possess the future as their inheritance, and besides perceive the narrowness and toilsomeness from which they have been freed and the spaciousness they are destined to receive and enjoy in immortality.
97 The sixth order is that it is shown to them how their face is destined to shine like the sun, and how they are to be made like the light of the stars, and be incorruptible thenceforth.
98 The seventh order, which is greater than all those that have been mentioned, is that they will exult boldly, and that they will trust confidently, and rejoice fearlessly, for they hasten to see the face of him whom they served in life, and from whom they are to receive their reward when they are glorified.
99 These are the orders of the souls of the upright, as henceforth proclaimed, and the above ways of torture are those which those who would not give heed will henceforth suffer."
100 And I answered and said,
"Then will time be given the souls after they are seperated from the bodies, to see what you have told me of?"
101 And he said to me,
"They have freedom for seven days, to see on the seven days the things you have been told, and afterward they will be gathered in their dwellings."
102 And I answered and said,
" If I have found favor in your sight, show me, your slave, further, whether on the Day of Judgement the upright will be able to intercede for the ungodly, or to beseech the Most High on their behalf, fathers for sons, or sons for parents, brothers for brothers, relatives for their kinsmen, and friends for those who are most dear to them."
104 And he answered me and said,
"Since you have found favor in my sight, I will show you this also. The Day of Judgement is final and shows to all the stamp of truth. Just as now a father cannot send his son or a son his father or a master his slave or a friend his dearest friend to be sick for him, or sleep or eat or be cured,
105 so no one can pray for another then, or lay a burden on another, for they must all bear everyone his own iniquity or uprightness then."
