There Is No Fire In Hell
Updated: Jan 15
We live in Satan's world. If you recall in reading your Bible the account where Satan took Jesus to an "unusually high mountain," and while there, Satan told Jesus, "All of these kingdoms of the world I will give to you for a single act of worship toward me."
(Matthew chapter 4)
Two points to glean from this:
Satan knew Jesus and his mission on Earth, consequently, Satan tried to subvert him through vanity and greed by having him betray His heavenly Father. Satan failed.
Well aware that the world is under Satan's control, Jesus never refuted Satan's ownership, but merely rejected the offer. (See also 1 John 5:19)
The above is mentioned to point to the fact that Satan has and is doing EVERYTHING in his power to persuade people from following and believing in Jesus Christ. From the beginning of creation, Satan opposed God and fights to stop the coming Heavenly Kingdom! (Matthew 6:9,10)
Include in all of this is one of Satan's most heinous crimes, which is to twist Biblical translation, and pervert scriptural truth through the use of the Antichrist that stood up in 325AD in Rome, Italy. a "Church" under Satan's control that spreads falsehoods, pagan traditions that defame the Christ, and outright lies about Jesus Christ's Heavenly Father, our Creator, YHWH.
By falsely applying pagan Greek and Roman teaching to twist and pervert the words of the Bible, the Antichrist ATTEMPTS to convince all of humanity that God is cruel and unjust, and will eternally torture any who who refuse to "believe on him."
WE HAVE SEEN FIRST HAND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A HEINOUS DICTATOR "FORCES PEOPLE" TO "LOVE" HIM. (HOLOCAUST)
A vengeful and wicked heart would attribute such behavior to our God/Creator.
Luke 11:34-36 warns against developing a "vengeful heart."
34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad your body is full of darkness. 35 Be careful, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 So if your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, you will be radiant, as though a lamp were shining on you.”
God's son, Jesus Christ, out of LOVE for humanity willingly subjected himself to be 'tortured' to death by the hateful and Satanic Roman government. Why? To teach Satan once and for all that his tactics will not work on everyone. Jesus there supplied the ultimate expression of loving-kindness, learning first-hand what torture is.
Is it logical to believe then that either He (Jesus) or his Heavenly Father could would condone the torture of anyone despite their crime.
Humanity, due to the deliberate rebellion in Eden, have hearts far removed from any genuine love of God. Still, not even will THEY condone such conduct, not wishing even to see so much as an animal suffer needlessly. And are we not all the progeny of God?
(Consider: Had your child grown to be a thief and murderer, would you condone daily torture for that one? The daily burning of its body parts with torches, and regular intervals of scraping the raw, burned flesh with a stiff brush?)
If you learn anything about the Jews during Jesus life on Earth, you will find that, in those times, outside the southwest wall of Jerusalem was the valley of Hinnom, also known as Gehenna.
Hinnom (Gehenna) was a garbage dump. Sulfur (like coal) was used to ensure that the fire within continually burned to consume the garbage and other waste dumped there. Anything thrown into Gehenna was completely and totally destroyed.
It was into this valley that the bodies of murders and other condemned criminals, i.e., those who did not merit a proper burial, were cast. The Jews, being aware of this, caused Jesus to use this image symbolically many times to refer to those religious leaders that refused to recognize him. They were to be cast "into the darkness outside."
Consequently this, "lake that burns with fire and sulfur," is a mere symbol of final and lasting judgement and destruction; dead and gone.
Revelation 21, as a consequence, refers to being thrown into this "Gehenna," as "the second death." The end! To no longer be alive! (Revelation 21:8), Thereby referring to those not deserving a resurrection. A "second death" from which there is no hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:14-16) No, it is NOT referring to the so-called HELL, the mythical place of torment that originated in Greek and Roman mythology and subsequently introduced into Christianity when the Antichrist began ruling in 325CE.
To emphasize the error of this false teaching is a scripture from the KJV that refers to HELL itself being destroyed!
Revelation 20:14 KJV: "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
How can hell be cast into hell? Because the word HADES, translated here as HELL and referring to the 'common grave' of the dead, will itself also be destroyed since, "DEATH WILL BE NO MORE, NEITHER WILL MOURNING NOR OUTCRY NOR PAIN BE ANYMORE." REVELATION 21:4
There are so many scriptures that show and prove that no such place as a fiery hell physically exists. Example:
Ecclesiastes 9:5-10 KJV "For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten."
"Neither have they anymore a reward..." either good or bad. The wicked are gone forever.
To attribute such heinous behavior as "eternal torture" to our creator is as near to blasphemy as one can get.
The defamation of our Creator's character, i.e., to call our God of love, a torturer and tormentor, is something that would come only from Satan's mouth because of his hatred of God and Jesus Christ.
This is something that began back in Eden just after creation when Satan called God a liar.
"You positively will not die," Satan said to the woman, after God told her explicitly, "do not touch the tree of life that is in the middle of the garden or you will positively die." (Genesis 3:4-6)
The Roman Antichrist under Satan's leadership is responsible for the immeasurable suffering during these thousands of years of this Great Tribulation. From 325CE down to our day.
The Antichrist introduced this mythical place of torment after it murdered Jesus, and then, by inference, tells this lie to put its followers in fear, causing them to believe that God is a "tormentor of souls," to do nothing more that enslave them to the church.
This Antichrist perverts truth, presenting the false image of a vengeful and hate-filled God, who, like itself, a mere human dictator disguised as something holy, serving Satan, tells its subjects, "either follow me or suffer the consequences."
