What Does Hell Look Like

We all know the classical picture off hell: eternal torment, burning alive in the hottest fire imaginable for all eternity, with no relief and no end, forever. Is this truly what awaits for the unsaved?

\\Thank you Cluny. You have correctly stated our position about the punishment for sin.\\

Thank you, Samuel.

I think I'm more accurate about SDA than many of the people here are about Orthodoxy.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Trav - When I was writing Isaiah 26:14 - I was looking at Ezekiel 37:5 - 6 - thought about writing those verses down ,...
---RichardC on 3/5/15

The scripture came to my mind because of your post.
The "hell", subject has not been a study of mine. Just run across these as part of our life category's in scripture. Hell, Grave, Death, resurrection etc.

When I sift or reduce all pertinent, specific scripture into brackets there is a reoccurring subject. Israel. Not just judah as most consider Israel but, all Israel. All in the covenants, in the laws, in the prophets, in promises and in Christ.
Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
---Trav on 3/9/15


Cluny, Samuel insist the Bible does not talk about hell, and as far as I can see, he does not have the Bible. He must be reading the stuff of E.G. White. I always thought that SDA's were Christians. I thought they believe in the gospel.
So how do they witness? That people sinned against God, but there is no punishment in hell. That they all get the same punishment, death.
We witness the gospel. Man has sinned against God, and they are heading to hell. But through the Person of Jesus Christ, our sins can be forgiven. How do they explain not witnessing the gospel? I sure do not understand what system of teaching they have gotten.
---Luke on 3/9/15


Thank you Cluny. You have correctly stated our position about the punishment for sin.

Also yes I think Dante's images are very interesting. But we miss the political and theological commentary unless we have the notes that show who he is talking about and what was going on when the book was written.

Yes Luke the wicked are punished by being executed.


Rom 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

By Christ's mercy, I hope not to find out by experience the nature of hell.

It's interesting in Dante's Inferno, Satan is seen trapped in ice, cold, and darkness--as far from God as it is possible to get.

Glory to jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/8/15




\\So what you are saying is that if God punishes individuals for sinning against Him it is unjust.\\

SDAs believe that hell will be on earth, and God will resurrect the damned only to destroy them again by burning them alive.

This is what I was taught in the SDA Revelation Seminars in the 80's.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/8/15


Samuel, you say,
"Correct Luke GOD is just. Which is why making all people suffer in hell for all eternity is not from the Bible. For that is unjust."

So what you are saying is that if God punishes individuals for sinning against Him it is unjust? We know some sin more then others, and we know that people like Hitler did worse then maybe you and I and to punish him worse you say is unfair. That he should get what we get, death. You might as well go murder someone, your punishment would be the same as Hitlers by your standards,
---Luke on 3/8/15


\\Nope hell fantasy created by Dante an evil unbelieving sort whose tales live on forever in minds of demented preachers everywhere selling his fables to their fleeced flock.\\

Isn't that just special? Nobody had heard of hell before Dante. Not even Jesus, apparently.

My grandfather once asked me, "Son, do you believe that the priest can pray you out of hell?" I replied, "Dilly, there are a lot of people who think the priest can pray others out of hell, and ALL of them are Protestant."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

What awaits mankind is a hole in earth covered with dirt. If youre lucky like most in america you're body will be in a crate (casket) some will be nicer than others depending on the person who sold you the idea your body needed to be in a beautiful cadillac over-priced one - ha!

The collection of books called the bible have 4 different meanings for hell and none of these indicate forever. After the 3rd resurrection those unsaved will just be burned up because once something is burned up it cannot keep reburning - think and believe the Word of God.

Trav - When I was writing Isaiah 26:14 - I was looking at Ezekiel 37:5 - 6 - thought about writing those verses down , Haven't work on them that much to be sure,
---RichardC on 3/5/15




Isaiah 26:14 - They are dead they shall not live: They are deceased they shall not rise: Therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish,
---RichardC on 3/3/15

Here is another one RichardC I've considered and thought on, the opposite of these in Isa, you mentioned above.
Eze 37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones, Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
Eze 37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Hell translated as grave many times...not the burning pit. Some never rise again...they are just dead.
---Trav on 3/5/15


Isaiah 26:14 - They are dead they shall not live: They are deceased they shall not rise: Therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish,

( Now some have this a false gods , Other do not, they have - They - as Lords and tyrants , If it is the latter , It would seem to coincide with - Ecclesiastes - 9:5 )

James 2:10 - For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point he is guilty of all,
---RichardC on 3/3/15


Correct Luke GOD is just. Which is why making all people suffer in hell for all eternity is not from the Bible. For that is unjust.

For instance according to your doctrine. The unrepentant thief on the cross has been suffering in hell for two thousand years. Where Hitler has only been burning for less then one hundred. How is that just? Children are in hell according to your doctrine.

We have the nature like GOD. But we are mortal humans.

Job 4:17
Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

Rom 6:12
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

How long would you torture a child or a thief?
---Samuelbb7 on 3/3/15


Samuel, there is many reasons why your interpretations of hell are wrong. First, our God is just. So it is impossible for God to be cruel. Cruelty involves inflicting a punishment that is more severe or harsh than the crime. God is incapable of inflicting an unjust punishment. No innocent person will ever suffer at His Hand. For He is Perfectly just, and each person who spurns His grace will suffer exactly what he deserves (Luke 12:47,48: Matt. 16:27: Col. 3:25: Rev. 20:11-15: Proverbs 24:12).
Second, humans are fashioned in the very image of God, therefore, to eliminate them would do violence to His nature.
Wicked men will earnestly wish to be turned to nothing and forever cease to be that they many escape the wrath of God.
---Luke on 3/3/15


Rom 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Rev 20:5,6
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power...

Read Rev 19:20, 20:14
Yes Hell will exist. It is called the lake of fire. The verses above say the penalty for sin is death and the wicked will be resurrected to die in the lake of fire which is the Second death.
Born once die twice. Born twice die once.
The doctrine of hell as taught teaches all receive the same exact punishment which you say is incorrect.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/26/15


Samuel, you said,
"However all will be resurrected some to eternal life others to die forever."

Where is the passage where it says what you said? That some will die forever? If it is as you say, and many die forever, how can they be punish? People dead do not feel anything. Can you explain that also? What I do read is, that God is Just and so some will be punish more then others, according to their sins. Everyone is treated justly. I want to hear what you have to say. You must not believe in a hell.
---Luke on 2/25/15

That is exactly what awaits the lost. Yet no one has come back to tell us how bad it is. I really do not want to know. I am not going there, I belong to Christ. That is a promise from Christ.
---Luke on 2/24/15


Genesis 2:7

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

We are a living soul. All humans will be resurrected as souls. Our Spirit or breath and who we are returns to GOD but has no independent thought. We are a combination of body and Spirit.


Ecc 12:7

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

However all will be resurrected some to eternal life others to die forever.


John 5:29

And shall come forth, they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life, and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/3/15


Micha, perhaps after man has destroyed the body, then depending on weather you are saved or not, God either destroys the soul or enters it into paradise? Just a thought.

Cluny:

You asked: Can you name one such, Samuel?

The Westboro Baptist Church has (or at least had), on their website, a page devoted to Matthew Sheppard. It featured an animated graphic of flames, with his face superimposed on it, and a running counter titled "number of days Matthew Sheppard has been in hell". I am sure they would bring sandwiches to watch.

While I would be loath to call them Christians, based on their attitudes, I'll leave the wheat/tare separation until the day of judgment.

\\Read the words translated in the New Testament as hell.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/28/15
\\

There are several Greek words the KJV NT renders as "hell."

Most modern versions try to render different Greek words with different English terms.

In my own liturgical translations--a task not unlike translating the Bible--I prefer to use "sheol" for the grave or place of departed spirits (HADES in Greek) and gehenna for the place of eternal punishment.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Storong's Matthew 5:22

I.Hell is the place of the future punishment called "Gehenna" or "Gehenna of fire". This was originally the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem, where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast out and burned, a fit symbol of the wicked and their future destruction.

But it is a place of dead bodies and destruction not eternal torment.

Luke 10:16 hell is from a different word.


Hades or Pluto, the god of the lower regionsOrcus, the nether world, the realm of the dead

it is also translated as: the grave, death,

Darlene_1, The dead in Hell's knowledge is worthless to them now. Whatever they knew while they lived on Earth is worthless now.
Whatever they knew does them no good now.
Besides, they know absolutely nothing about what goes on, on Earth, after they've departed at death.
They are in constant fear and torments to have any use for knowledge to boot.
And, the true Knowledge that only comes from GOD, they are stripped of when they dove into Hell at death.
Now, they only know GOD's Wrath.

For all who believe the grave is Hell,I'm sorry to contradict you but what are you going to do about the Bible verses which tell us over and over Hell has fire such as Matthew 5:22 and Luke 16:23 which says there is torment in Hell. Dead people have no knowledge of anything in the grave therefore it can't be Hell there is no fire and no torment for those things don't have power where the Dead have no knowledge. God Bless

Depending on the definition given hell is the grave. Our soul is our breath of life. No I'm not a Jehovah's Witness, but they are scriptural correct in this area. God destroys the wicked. Our bodies turn to dust and the unjust/wicked will not get new bodies.the grave/hell will be cast INTO the last hell or lake of fire.Again only God can destroy both body & soul.

About why people would go to the place prepared for Satan and his angels >

Paul says there is "the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience," in Ephesians 2:2. This spiritual being of Satan is living and working in people who disobey God. And this spirit is foul and nasty and filthy with horrible feelings and dominating emotions and drives for pleasure.

And it is going to the flaming sewer. So, one of this spirit will go with it, unless one is turned "from the power of Satan to God" (in Acts 26:18).

And I consider that a spiritual being keeps on existing. So, there would need to be an eternal location for it. So, hell is practical, not just meant to make people suffer.
---com7fy8 on 1/24/15


Hell is the grave.

The final end of the wicked is the lake of fire which comes down from God out of heaven and purifies the earth. It occurs after the Millennium in heaven. It occurs on the surface of the earth - not beneath it. It consumes and destroys all vestiges of sin, including the wicked, Satan, and his angels. They will be ashes under the feet of the saved in the earth made new.

Jed, The outer darkness, the undying worms, the unquenchable fire, the screaming and gnashing of teeth are truly what Hell (and the Lake of Fire) consist of.
And this modern notion that all of those just-mentioned descriptives of Hell are just "old fashioned, superstitious beliefs by old-world peoples who were just simply spiritually unenlightened" is not true.
The truth is the other way around.
Those beliefs are more accurate to the Bible, it's that we, in our modern day, have drifted from the truth of Scriptures.
Hell is as Yahushua(JESUS) said in MARK 9.
It's unimaginably horrific.
That's why He cautioned us to gouge out eyes and cut off hands if we have to in order to keep from ending up there.

Scripture > I think Revelation 14:9-10 can show that there is brimstone used to torment as punishment. But this is "in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb." So, the brimstone does not hurt everyone. It is a matter of our nature.

Your nature decides if fire burns you or not. "For our God is a consuming fire." (Hebrews 12:29) He does not hurt us in the fire of His love, but selfish people's nature is burnt about loving and being all-forgiving.

Galatians 6:7-8 > We are now already reaping emotionally according to what we have been sowing.
