Hell 4

Posted: July 20, 2017 in Hell
Tags: , , , , ,

Last week we read that hell is inside the earth.  When Christ died he descended inside the earth to hell.  There he
proclaimed to the lost souls.

Another place inside the earth is the Abyss.  The Abyss is a subterranean home for demonic angels.
This is also where Satan will be thrown for a thousand years (what many Christians call the millennium).  We are
close but haven’t yet reached this time in history.

Revelations 9:11  Their king is the angel (Satan) from the bottomless pit;  his name in Hebrew is Abaddon,
and in Greek, the Destroyer.

Revelations 17:8  The beast you saw was once alive but isn’t now.  And yet he will soon come up out of the
bottomless pit and go to eternal destruction.

Revelations 20:3  The angel threw him (Satan) into the bottomless pit (Abyss), which he then shut and
locked so Satan could not deceive the nations anymore until the thousand years were finished.

I believe that hell and the Abyss are located inside the earth and are filled with extreme heat, tor-
meant 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 of this place.  ‘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 more in-depth about Jesus descending into hell.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

fantastic rays

In Genesis 6:1-2 we learned that the “sons of God” were NOT fallen angels, therefore the Nephilim could not be
the huge offspring of fallen angels having sex with human woman.

But who were the Nephilim?

Genesis 6:4  The Nephilim were on the earth in those days- and also afterward- when the sons of God
went to the daughters of men and had children by them.  They were the heroes of old, MEN of renown.

This scripture tells us the Nephilim were on the earth in those days and afterward:  

The Nephilim were on the earth when the sons of God (descendants of Seth) married and had sex with the
daughters of men (descendants of Cain).  This greatly disappointed God.

The Nephilim were also on the earth afterwards.  This is referring to after the flood.  They were on the earth when
people began to repopulate the earth.

Also, the above scripture tells us the Nephilim were the heroes of old.  They were MEN of renown.

This clarifies that the Nephilim were prominent MEN, well respected people.

Next week, more clues to the identity of the Nephilim.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s review our study on Genesis 6:1-2

Genesis 6:1-2  When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born of them, the
sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.

Many Christians believe the sons of God were angels that rebelled against God.  The rebellious angels married
and had sex with human women.  As a result, their offspring were a giant human race called Nephilim.

This is incorrect because  1.  Angels are spiritual beings and cannot have sex with human flesh.  2.  Angels and
Satan do not have the power of creation.  Only God does.  3.  Rebellious angels were not cast out of heaven until
just after Jesus birth.  They weren’t on earth during Genesis.  4.  No where in the Old Testament is demon pos-
session mentioned.

The sons of God are actually the descendants of Seth.  They called on the name of the Lord.  The daughters of
men are from the descendants of Cain.  They did not call on the name of the Lord.

The sons of God “believers” saw that the daughters of men “nonbelievers” were beautiful.  They married
and had sex with them.  They were unequally yoked.  The sons of God lost their faith.  Mans heart became evil.

This greatly disappointed God so he wiped mankind from the face of the earth.  Only Noah and his family found
favor with God.  Noah and his family survived the flood and began to repopulate the earth.

Next week, who are the Nephilim of Genesis 6:4.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s sum up our study of Genesis 6:1-2 so far.

Genesis 6:1-2  When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born of them, the
sons of God, saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.

Many Christians believe that the sons of God were rebellious angels that married and had sex with human women.
As a result, their offspring were a giant human race called Nephilim.

This is incorrect for many reasons.

1)  Angels are spiritual beings and cannot have sex with human flesh.

2)  The rebellious angels could not take human form since the angels and Satan (also a spiritual angel) do
not have the power of creation.  They can’t create human flesh.

3)  God did not create the flesh for rebellious angels to possess.  This is evident in the very next verse.
Genesis 6:3  God expresses his displeasure with the actions of Genesis 6:2.  He did not cause it.

4)  The rebellious angels did not possess already living human beings.  Revelation 12 tells us that the
rebellious angels (demons) were not hurled to the earth until just after the birth of Jesus.

5)  No where in the Old Testament is demon possession mentioned.  The rebellious angels were not on the
earth during Genesis.

Next week, who really were the sons of God.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

The previous two weeks we’ve established that Satan and the rebellious angels were not hurled to the earth until
shortly after Jesus birth.

I’m aware that Satan roamed the earth in the Old Testament as the following scriptures suggest.

Genesis 3:1-4  Satan tempted Eve and caused her to fall.

Job 1:6  One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with
them.  The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”  From roaming through the earth and going
back and forth in it.”

Job 1:12  God allowed Satan to tempt Job on the earth.

These scriptures show us that Satan roamed the earth but still had access to speak with God in
heaven.  Satan was not permanently hurled to the earth until just after the birth of Jesus.

Also, no where in the Old Testament is demon possession mentioned.  The rebellious angels along
with Satan were not hurled to the earth until just after the birth of Jesus.

Again, the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:1-2 could not be rebellious angels or demons.

Next week we will sum up what we’ve learned before discovering who were the “sons of God.”

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s read a third reason that the “sons of God” from Genesis 6:1-2 cannot be rebellious angels.  Rebellious
angels or demons were not on the earth in Genesis nor any time during the Old Testament.

Revelation 12:2  … she became pregnant and cried out in pain as she (Israel/Mary) was about to give birth.

Revelation 12:5  She (Israel/Mary) gave birth to a son, a male child (Jesus) who will rule with an iron scepter.

She refers to the nation of Israel and specifically the virgin Mary.  The iron scepter is not a sword but a long rod
that is symbolic of authority.

Revelations 12:6  The woman (Mary) fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God where she
might be taken care of for 1260 days (3.5 years).

This verse confirms Mathew 2:13  When they (3 wise men) had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in
a dream.  “Get up” he said, “Take the child (Jesus) and his mother (Mary) and escape to Egypt (desert).  
Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.

The above scriptures show us that Revelations 12 takes place at the time of Jesus birth and shortly
after.

Revelations 12:7-9  And there was a war in heaven.  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Satan), and
the dragon and his angels fought back.  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.  The
great dragon was hurled down- the ancient serpent- called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole 
world astray.  He was hurled to the earth, AND HIS ANGELS WITH HIM.

So far, we have established that Revelation 12 takes place during the time of Jesus birth.  It was soon 
after his birth that Satan and his rebellious angels (demons) were hurled to the earth.  The rebellious 
angels were not on the earth during Genesis nor anytime during the Old Testament.

Next week, more Revelation 12 scriptures that confirm this point.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

This week let’s read three scriptures that help prove the “sons of God” from Genesis 6:1-2 can’t be rebellious angels.

Mathew 22:29-30  Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage;  they will be like the angels in heaven.”

Mark 12:24-25  Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God?
When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage;  they will be like the angels in heaven.”

Luke 20:34-36  Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are con-
sidered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry 
nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die, for they are like the angels.

The above scriptures confirm that people and angels cannot marry in the heavenly life.

Last week we read that Satan and the rebellious angels don’t have the power of creation.  They can’t create human
flesh which is necessary to marry and have sex with human women.  They are spiritual beings.

Therefore, since angels cannot marry in the heavenly life and they can’t create themselves as human 
in the earthly life, the “sons of God” from Genesis 6:1-2 that marry human women cannot be rebel-
lious angels.

Next week, one more reason that the “sons of God” can’t be rebellious angels.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
