         HELL 5

In Hell 1-4 we read that the home of nonbelieving souls is called “Hell.”  The place on earth that most
resembles the horror of this dwelling was called the “Valley of Hinnom.”  In this valley, the people of
Judah built a fire pit that was used as a garbage dump.  It was also where they burned and sacrificed
their children to pagan gods.  They have done evil in my eyes, declares the Lord.  In Hebrew
“Valley of Hinnom” is translated as “Gehenna.”  In English “Gehenna” is translated as “Hell.”

Hell is a literal place of fiery punishment.  Hell is located below the earths crust where the temperature
can reach 6000 degrees Celsius.

After Jesus died, he descended into hell for three days before he was resurrected.  He descended into
hell to preach to the spirits of past nonbelievers.

A Final Note:  The millennium is a time frame of one thousand years where Satan and his fallen angels
will be held in the abyss.  After the millennium, Satan and his fallen angels will be released for a short
time before they are thrown into a place called the Burning Lake of Sulfur, also known as the
Lake of Fire.  Nonbelievers will be released from hell and judged before God.  They will also be thrown
into the Lake of Fire.

The devil (Satan), the fallen angels and nonbelievers will be tormented day and night for ever and ever
in the Lake of Fire.  This is known as the Second Death or Final Death.  We will read more about this
when we study Revelations.

Next week, what is each persons specific calling or task?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
