"Hell is the Final Destiny For Those Who Don't Repent"
There are so many people which do not think there is a
"Hell" but there is, and one day soon they will find out.
Due to the world (sinful people) which refuse to repent
this world is going to be punished and the "Wrath of God" is going to
come and that will be all she wrote.
Hell is a place of future punishment for
lost and unrepentant people after death.
DEFINITION AND DESCRIPTION
Hell is the final destiny of those who do not put their faith in Jesus Christ
and his grace, it's a place for those who refuse to repent of their sins.
Hell is described by images such as:
a furnace of fire (Matthew 13:42, 50; 25:41,
eternal fire (Matthew 13:42, 50; 25:41,
eternal punishment (Matthew 13:42, 50; 25:41,
outer darkness (Matthew 13:42, 50; 25:41,
the place of weeping and torment (Matthew
the lake of fire, the second death (Revelation
a place for the devil and his demons (Matthew
Evidently, those in hell experience everlasting separation from God, never to
see the glory of his power. You will never see "Jesus" you are lost,
never again will you experience anything ever that you thought you was.....
Hell, is the final destination and you will be there for
eternity, you will never get out, you can scream all you want to, it will not
do any good.
(2 Thessalonians 1:9)
Other expressions that indicate that the final state of the
wicked is eternal are these:
“burn with unquenchable fire” (Matthew
“to the unquenchable fire ... where their worm does not
die, and the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:43, 48)
there is sin that “will not be forgiven, either in this age
or in the age to come” (Matthew 12:32, RSV)
When Scripture is understood properly, there is no hint anywhere of the
termination of the terrible state of unbelievers in hell. Their doom is
unending; there is a solemn finality about their miserable condition. Some of
the most descriptive and conclusive utterances about hell come from the lips
God didn't create it for man, but for THE DEVIL and his fallen angels,
but it has enlarged its mouth to receive all the rebel angelic and human
ENEMIES of GOD !!!
There is NOT NEUTRAL ground never will be, either you are for Jesus or
against HIM !
This IS NOT A JOKE !!!
I beg you in the name of THE ALMIGHTY GOD, escape Hell!
Please don't RISK YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY,
JESUS LOVED YOU SO MUCH TO DIE in "YOUR
PLACE" so that You don't have to !!!!
A summary of all Scripture that speaks of hell indicates that there is the
loss and absence of all good, and the misery and torment of an evil
The most terrifying aspect is the complete and deserved separation from God
and from all that is pure, holy, and beautiful. In addition, there is the
awareness of being under the wrath of God and of enduring the curse of a
righteous sentence because of one’s sins that were consciously and
Although the biblical descriptions of hell are stated in very
physical and literal terms, the essential character of hell should not be
conceived in or limited to designations such as the worm that devours, the
stripes that are inflicted, the burning or being consumed by fire.
This affirmation does not detract from the horror or the gravity of the
situation in hell, because nothing could possibly be worse than separation
from God and the torment of an evil conscience. Hell is hell for those who
are there essentially because they are completely alienated from God, and
wherever there is alienation from God, there is always estrangement from
This is the worst possible punishment to which anyone could be subject:
to be totally and irrevocably cut off from God and to be at
enmity with all those who are around oneself.
Another painful consequence of such a condition is to be at odds with
oneself-torn apart from within by an accusing sense of guilt and shame. This
condition is one of total conflict: with God, one’s neighbors, and
This is hell! If the descriptions of hell
are figurative or symbolic, the conditions they represent are more intense
and real than the figures of speech in which they are expressed.
Punishment for sin is a persistent teaching of the Bible
The doctrine of judgment is as extensive as the canon itself from Genesis
(Genesis 2:17; 3:17-19) to the Prophets (Ezekiel 14:10) to the
final Revelation (Revelation 20:11-15).
BIBLICAL TERMS The Hebrew word “Sheol” in the
Old Testament is predominantly used for “the grave, the
pit, the place of the departed dead” (Genesis 37:35; Job
7:9; 14:13; 17:13-16; Psalms 6:5; 16:10;
55:15; Proverbs 9:18; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Isaiah
14:11; 38:10-12, 18). There does not seem to be a very
clear distinction in the Old Testament between the final destiny of the good
and the evil.
They all go to the grave, to the world below, a world of
gloom, weariness, darkness, decay, and forgetfulness, where one is
remote from God (Job 10:20-22; Psalm 88:3-6), yet accessible to
him (Job 26:6; Psalm 138:8; Amos 9:2).
It is a place characterized by silence (Psalms 94:17;
115:17) and rest (Job 3:17). Other texts, however, seem to
suggest some aspect of consciousness, hope, and
communication in Sheol (Job 14:13-15; 19:25-27;
Psalms 16:10; 49:15; Isaiah 14:9-10; Ezekiel
A few texts seem to suggest the threat of divine judgment after death (Psalms 9:17;
On the whole, Sheol was regarded with dismay and foreboding
(Deuteronomy 32:22; Isaiah 38:18). It was not until the time of
the postcanonical Jewish literature, the writings that were developed between
the close of the Old Testament and the beginning of New Testament times, that
clear distinctions were made between the final destinies of the righteous and
The idea of separate divisions within Sheol for the good and
the evil was developed.
It is unmistakable that there was in Jewish thought, as
reflected throughout the Old Testament, a belief in a future and continued
existence beyond death, however shadowy and indefinite the concept. The
Greek word “hades” in the New Testament is
used very similarly to “Sheol” in the Old Testament. It was, in fact,
used by the translators of the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old
Testament, for Sheol.
It designated in general the place or state of the dead, the
grave, or death itself. In some versions the word is not translated at all
but is transliterated simply as “hades.” The New
Testament is not always very explicit about the meaning of hades, other than what has just been described. Use of the word
often does not reveal much about the specific condition of the dead.
There are some passages, however, that indicate a distinct advance over the
use of Sheol in the Old Testament. One New Testament passage definitely
describes hades as a place of evil and punishment of the
wicked, and may appropriately be translated “hell” (Luke
16:23). In all other instances, hades indicates nothing more than the
place of the dead. The Greek word “Gehenna”
is used in a number of New Testament texts to designate the fiery place for
punishment of sinners and is often translated “hell”
or “the fires of hell” (Matthew 5:22,
29-30; 10:28; 18:9; 23:15, 33; Mark
9:43, 45, 47; James 3:6).
It is usually used in connection with the final judgment and often has the
suggestion that the punishment spoken of is eternal. Gehenna is derived by transliteration from the Hebrew of the Old
Testament “valley of Hinnom” or the “valley of the son of Hinnom,” a ravine on the south side of
Jerusalem. This valley was the center of idolatrous worship in which children
were burned by fire as an offering to the heathen god Molech (2 Chronicles
28:3; 33:6). In the time of Josiah it became a place of
abomination, polluted by dead men’s bones and rubbish (2 Kings
23:10-14) and by the garbage and filth of Jerusalem dumped there. A fire
burned continuously in this valley.
It thus became a symbol of the unending fires of hell where the lost are
consumed in torment. It was a symbol of judgment to be imposed on the
idolatrous and disobedient (Jeremiah 7:31-34; 32:35).
Another Greek word used to designate hell or “the lower
regions” is “Tartarus” (2 Peter
2:4), a classical word for the place of eternal punishment. The apostle
Peter uses it for the fallen angels who were thrown into hell, “committed
... to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment” (RSV). As
noted above, there are, in addition to these terms, the very explicit and
vivid phrases that clearly teach the doctrine of hell, as developed at the
beginning of this article.
The biblical doctrine is determined much more by these
decisive phrases than by the somewhat indecisive but frequently used terms
“Sheol” and “hades.”
THE JUSTICE OF ETERNAL PUNISHMENT
It is difficult for us to understand the righteous judgment of a holy God
who, on one hand, hates all evil, yet, on the other hand, loves the evildoers
enough to sacrifice his only Son for their salvation from sin.
Divine wrath is the necessary reaction of a holy God who hates all that is
contrary to his righteous nature. When the only remedy for human sin is
rejected and all appeals of a loving, seeking God for the reconciliation of
rebellious sinners are refused, there is no other course of action that God
himself can pursue but to leave the sinner to his self-chosen destiny.
Punishment for sin is then the inevitable and inescapable response of
holiness to that which is morally opposite, and it must continue as long as
the sinful condition requiring it continues. There is no indication anywhere
in Scripture that lost sinners in hell are capable of repentance and faith.
If in this life they did not turn away from sin and receive Christ as Savior
with all the favorable circumstances and opportunities afforded them on
earth, it is unreasonable to think they will do so in the life to come.
Punishment cannot come to an end until guilt and sin come to an end. When the
sinner ultimately resists and rejects the work of the Holy Spirit whereby he
is convicted of sin, there remains no more possibility of repentance or
salvation. He has committed an eternal sin (Mark 3:29; Revelation
22:11), which deserves eternal punishment.
The impossibility of faith and repentance in hell is seen also from the
tragic reality of the depraved will, conditioned and determined by its
repeated rebellion against God. Sin reproduces itself in the will, and
character tends to become irrevocably fixed. God responds to endless sinning
with the necessary counterpart of endless punishment.
If the question is raised, “How can a loving
God send people to an everlasting hell?” it must be replied that God
does not choose this destination for people; they freely choose it for
themselves. God simply concurs in their self-chosen way and reveals the full
consequences of their evil choice. It must always be remembered that God is
not only loving, he is also holy and righteous.
There must be some adequate reckoning with justice in the universe where a
revolt against God has brought evil consequences of enormous proportions.
While the duration of punishment in hell is eternal for all who have chosen
that destiny for themselves, there are degrees of punishment proportional to
the degrees of guilt of each individual. Only God is able to determine what
those degrees are, and he will assign the consequences with perfect justice
according to the responsibility of each one.
Evidence of such gradations in future punishment is found in
Scriptures such as Matthew 11:20-24; Luke 12:47-48;
An obvious comparison is made in these texts between the differing
intensities of punishment that are involved in the contrasting privileges,
knowledge, and opportunities. There are a variety of views that must be ruled
out, however attractively they may be presented by their advocates and
however popular they may be from time to time.
Among these views are the erroneous, but sometimes persuasive, doctrines
of universalism, annihilationism, and second probation.
Universalism promotes the concept that God will save everyone in the
Annihilationism teaches that hell is
not a place of conscious suffering but of final extermination.
And second probation is a notion that people can be delivered from hell.
While these theories can be attractive, the Bible is our rule of faith for
the doctrine of hell, however difficult the doctrine may seem for natural
reason or for human sentiment.
Scripture leaves no doubt about the terrible nature and the eternal duration
of hell. Rejection or neglect of this doctrine will have dire effects upon
the mission of the church. If you have any doubts, as to where you will end
up when you die or when Jesus Christ returns, then please "Ask Jesus to
come into your heart, and ask for forgiveness of your sins. He will enter
your heart and you become one in Christ."
