         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.

         HELL 4

Thanks for reading.

So far, we have read that the home of nonbelieving souls is called “Hell.”  It is called “Hell” because the
place on earth that most resembles this horrible place was the “Valley of Hinnom.”  In Hebrew
“Valley of Hinnom” is translated as “Gehenna.”  In English “Gehenna” is translated as “Hell.”

Also, hell is a place of eternal fire and hell is located somewhere inside the earth.  The earths core
temperature can reach 6000 degrees Celsius.

In this blog, let’s read where Jesus went after he was crucified.  Most christians know that Christ rose
from the dead after three days, but where did he go during those three days?

1 Peter 3:18  … He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit, THROUGH WHOM ALSO
HE WENT AND PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS IN PRISON WHO DISOBEYED LONG AGO WHEN GOD
WAITED PATIENTLY IN THE DAYS OF NOAH WHILE THE ARK WAS BEING BUILT.

JESUS DESCENDED INTO HELL TO PREACH TO THE UNBELIEVERS OF THE PAST.  He may have pro-
claimed the gospel or he may have made a declaration of victory or both.

As some Christians believe, Christ DID NOT descend into hell to bring early believers out of a place
called Abraham’s bosom.  There is no such thing as Abrahams bosom- a so called good area of hell that
held believers until the time of Jesus.

The false idea of Abraham’s bosom comes from Luke 16:19-26.  These scriptures are a story or parable
to make a point.  Jesus often spoke in parables.  The phrase Abrahams’s bosom is never mentioned.
The great chasm between the rich man and Lazarus refers to the separation between hell and heaven
(heaven is where Abraham resides) and not the separation between hell and some holding place where
Abraham supposedly resides.

There is no such thing as a holding place.  When we study salvation, we will read that believers go
immediately to heaven and nonbelievers go immediately to hell.

Next week, we will conclude our study of hell.  The following week, we will begin reading about Gods
specific plan or task for each believer.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

         Hell 3

Welcome to the new readers this week.  Hope the information is helpful.

In HELL 2 we read that hell is referred to AS A PLACE OF ETERNAL FIRE.  Now let’s examine where hell
is most likely located.

In HEAVEN 2 and HEAVEN 3 we read that heaven stretches from the clouds to the stars and God is above
the heavens.  The only other place for hell is down.  IS HELL INSIDE THE EARTH?  IS THE
ETERNAL FIRE INSIDE THE EARTH?  I believe it is.

The earth’s crust is 20 to 30 miles thick.  Beneath the crust is a layer called the mantle.   The mantle is
a layer where hot magna, molten rock and hot gases come from when they seep through the earth’s
crust as volcanoes.

Beneath the mantle layer is the outer core which has a temperature of 4400 degrees Celsius.  Beneath
the outer core is the inner core or center of the earth.  The earth’s core temperature is equal to that of
the suns surface at 6000 degrees Celsius.

Romans 10:7  “or who will descend into the deep?”  (that is to bring Christ up from the dead).

Another place inside the earth is the Abyss.  The Abyss is a subterranean abode for demonic angels.

Revelations 9:1  … and I saw a star (angel) had fallen from the sky to the EARTH.  The star was given
the key to the shaft of the Abyss.  When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a
gigantic furnace.  The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.

The scriptures go on to describe the locusts (demons) flowing from the Abyss onto the earth.  This takes
place after the millineum and will be studied more when we read from the book of Revelations.

I BELIEVE HELL AND THE ABYSS ARE LOCATED INSIDE THE EARTH AND ARE FILLED WITH EXTREME
HEAT, TORMENT AND AGONY WHERE THE FIRE NEVER GOES OUT.

Hell is so bad that in Luke 16:27, the rich man wanted to warn his brothers.  ‘Then I beg you, father,
send Lazarus to my father’s house, for I have five brothers.  Let him warn them, so that they will not
also come to this place of torment.’

Luke 16:31  He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced
even if someone rises from the dead.’

Next week, we will be reading about Jesus descending into hell after his crucifiction.

Thanks you for reading.  God bless.

         HELL 2

Thanks for reading.  In HELL 1 we read that the eternal home of unbelieving souls is called “Hell”
because the place on earth that most resembles the horror of this eternal dwelling was called the
“Valley of Hinnom” or “Gehenna” which is translated as “Hell.”

Let’s read more scriptures describing “Hell.”

Isaiah 1:31  The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark;  both will burn together, WITH
NO ONE TO QUENCH THE FIRE.

Mathew 5:22  … But anyone who says, “You fool!”  will be in DANGER OF THE FIRE OF HELL.

Mathew 18:8  It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet
and BE THROWN INTO THE ETERNAL FIRE.

Mark 9:43  It is far better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, WHERE THE
FIRE NEVER GOES OUT.

James 3:6  The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body.  It corrupts the whole
person, SETS THE WHOLE COARSE OF HIS LIFE ON FIRE IN HELL.

The above scriptures refers to HELL AS A PLACE OF ETERNAL FIRE, but where is this place where the
the fire never goes out?  This place where none of us want to go?

Next weeks blog will address where hell is located.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Hell 1

         HELL 1

Thanks for reading.  Let’s begin our study of hell.  Is hell real and where is it?

Jeremiah 7:30  The people of Judah have done evil in my eyes, declares the Lord.  They have set up
detestable idols in the house that bears my Name and have defiled it.  They have built the high places
of Topheth in the VALLEY OF BEN HINNOM TO BURN THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN THE FIRE-
SOMETHING I (GOD) DID NOT COMMAND, NOR DID IT ENTER MY MIND.

SOUTH OF JERUSALEM, IN THE VALLEY OF HINNNOM, THE PEOPLE BUILT A FIRE PIT THAT WAS USED
AS A GARBAGE DUMP.  IT WAS ALSO WHERE THEY SACRIFICED AND BURNED THEIR CHILDREN TO
PAGAN GODS.

In Hebrew “VALLEY OF HINNOM” is translated as “GEHENNA.”  In English “GEHENNA” is translated as
“HELL.”

The bible calls the eternal home of nonbelieving souls “HELL.”  It is called “HELL” because the place on
earth that most resembles the horror of this eternal dwelling was the “VALLEY OF HINNOM” or
“GEHENNA” as described above in Jeremiah 7:30.

Next week we will read more scriptures that verifies hell as a real or unreal place.

Thanks so much for reading.  God bless.
