CHRIST The Only Way           

ETERNAL HELL

What is Hell? Let’s see how God’s Word describes it.

JOB SAYS IT IS DEEP.

Job 11:8 It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

HELL IS IN THE HEART OF THE EARTH.

Numbers 16:30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD. V.31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: V.32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. V.33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

Ezekiel 32:24 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth, which caused their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.

Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

JESUS WENT TO HELL IN OUR PLACE.

Ephesians 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?...

HELL IS LARGE ENOUGH FOR ALL THE WICKED OF THE EARTH.

Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

HELL HAS GATES AND BARS.

Job 17:16 They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

Jonah 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.

Job 38:17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?

Psalms 13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

Psalms 107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

Isaiah 38:10 I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

EVEN ANGELS ARE HELD IN HELL.  THIS IS A DIVISION OF HELL CALLED TARTARUS.  THIS IS THE GREEK WORD USED IN 2 PETER 2:4.

Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

JESUS WARNED OF THE GATES OF HELL.

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

HELL IS A PRISON WITH CELLS OR CHAMBERS WITH STONE WALLS.  THIS DIVISION OF HELL IS CALLED HADES OR SHEOLE IN HEBREW. IT MEANS SUBTERRANEAN RETREAT ; INMATES; GRAVE; HELL; PIT.

Isaiah 24:22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

Proverbs 7:27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Isaiah 14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

HELL IS THE HABITATION OF THE DEAD MEN AND EVIL SPIRITS.

Psalms 86:13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

Psalms 89:48 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.

Psalms 88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

HELL REMOVES YOUR STRENGTH.  YOU ARE HELPLESS.

Isaiah 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. V.10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

Psalms 88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:

THERE IS NO HOPE IN HELL.

Isaiah 38:18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

HELL IS A PLACE OF TORMENT AND TERRORS.

Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. V.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.

Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Luke 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.

Deuteronomy 32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. V.23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. V.24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

2 Samuel 22:6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;

HELL IS DRY.

Zechariah 9:11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.

HELL IS DESCRIBED AS OUTER DARKNESS.

Matthew 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, V.50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Ezekiel 32:18 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the pit.

FIRE AND BRIMSTONE.

Matthew 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: V.48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. V.49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, V.50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Mark 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: V.44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. V.45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: V.46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. V.47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: V.48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

HELL LASTS FOREVER.

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

THERE IS NO PEACE IN HELL.

Isaiah 57:21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

SHAME AND NAKEDNESS IN HELL.

Job 26:6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

THE PANGS OF HELL ARE DESCRIBED IN JOB.  WHEN AN UNBELIEVER DIES THEY ARE TAKEN AS IN A NET.  TAKEN BY THE FOOT AND PULLED DOWN INTO THE FIRE OF HELL.

Job 18:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, V.2 How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak. V.3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight? V.4 He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place? V.5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine. V.6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him. V.7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down. V.8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare. V.9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him. V.10 The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way. V.11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet. V.12 His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side. V.13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength. V.14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors. V.15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation. V.16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off. V.17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street. V.18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world. V.19 He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings. V.20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted. V.21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.

ANOTHER DIVISION OF HELL IS THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.  THIS IS TAKEN FROM THE GREEK WORK AB'-US-SOS OR ABYSS OR .  IT MEANS JUST AS IT SAYS A DEPTHLESS PIT.  THIS WILL BE WHERE satan IS HELD FOR THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST WHILE HE IS ON THE EARTH.

Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. V.2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

Revelation 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. V.2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, V.3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

ANOTHER DIVISION OF HELL IS THE LAKE OF FIRE.  IT IS DERIVED FROM THE GREEK WORK GEHENNA..

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. V.15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

THE BOSOM OF ABRAHAM.  AT ONE TIME THIS WAS A PLACE WITHIN THE BINDS OF HELL THAT WAS NOT FOR THE UNBELIEVER BUT A PLACE OF CONTENTMENT AND PLEASURE WHERE SAINTS, OR BELIEVERS, AND FOLLOWERS OF GOD WERE HELD TILL THE TIME FOR JESUS TO COME.

JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES OF THIS PLACE WHILE WALKING THE EARTH.  WHILE WITHIN HELL THERE WAS A GREAT CHASM BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS OF SOULS.  THE ONES TORMENTED FOR DISBELIEF COULD SEE THE BELIEVERS ACROSS THE DIVIDE.

Luke 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: V.20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, V.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. V.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; V.23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. V.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. V.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. V.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. V.27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: V.28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. V.29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. V.30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. V.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.

THIS DIVISION WAS TAKEN OUT AND UP TO THE THIRD HEAVEN WITH THE ASCENSION OF CHRIST TO HIS THROWN IN GLORY.

2 Corinthians 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, V.53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Ephesians 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
