What Is Hell

What is hell? If GOD is everywhere, and He is. I don't see how there could be any room left for hell. I think that hell is a misperception of HEAVEN, satan a misperception of GOD, demons a misperception of ANGELS and so on. Do YOU agree with this, and if not than why?

Eloy, I know that you say these thing in ignorance but I still pray for you. Ill tell you like ive told others, for you to make God out to be such a monster, God will be a monster to you on judgement day, for out of your own mouth you will be judged. On judgement day, God will lead you to believe that you will suffer the same faith that you have lead others to believe, may God have mercy on your soul.

see: 23 minutes in hell...
then tell me what you think.
Psalm 9:17
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Psalm 55:15
Let death seize upon them, and let them go down alive into hell, for wickedness is in their dwellings and among them.
Matthew 10:28
And fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul, but rather fear Him that is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

The endless torment of eternity.
2 Peter 2:4

---Lisa on 9/14/07

Hell is a place of unquenchable fire-(Matt13:41-42, Mark9:43).
Hell is a place of memory and remorse(Luke16:19-31).
Hell is a place of misery and pain(Rev. 14:10-11)
Hell is a place of frustration and anger(Matt. 13:42, Matt. 24:51).
The occupants of hell will be satan, the antichrist, the false prophet, fallen angels, Judas Iscariot and all unsaved peaple.
---Cynthia on 9/14/07

Eloy; I can't believe a person with your bible knowledge saying this drivel! You know perfectly well that hell is the English translation of sheol,hades,gehennah and tarterus: Tarterus is dense darkness (no fire there) no fire in sheol! hades is hot only in a parable of the rich man and lazerus ;The only fire is in gehennah a garbage dump outside Jerusalem (used figuratively)But you know this.
---1st_cliff on 9/14/07

Wouldn't hell be a place where the devil runs things, portrayed in Dante's Inferno.
2Co 4:4 "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
Hell is cast into the lake of fire.

Re 20:14 And death AND HELL were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
2Pe3:10,&12, The earth, the heavens, the elements, burned up in fervent heat.

Psalms 139;8
If I acsend up into heaven thou art there,If I make my bed in hell, behold thou art there. and I agree with the Mod, you need a little more study in the Holy Bible this time.
---Carla5754 on 1/6/07

It is ultimate evil of demons trying to take the place of the Godly which is happening today. It is the devil knowing that his time is short and trying to trade souls worldwide. It is a place where they ignore God's commands and do as they want.
---tonne on 1/4/07

It is true I am I, what you said about God been Omnipresent, and even in hell He can be found. That is one reason many Christians don't accept the Sovereignty of God because they have formed Him as they see Him and not as who He is. There is no place to hide from God. There is no corner of the universe where God is not. This is not comforting to the unbeliever, for he cannot hide from God.
---lisa on 1/2/07

2, yet its a comforting thought for the believer because no matter where he is at he is in the presence of Almighty God. David gave a good explanation of this,"Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there, if I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me."
---lisa on 1/2/07

3. Even the wicked in hell are only separted from God by His benevolence, His loving kindness. But not His presence. It is when a person studies the Nature, character and attributes of God that we see the God of Scripture not the one we want to see. So on this matter I agree with you. I will check the other comments you made.
---lisa on 1/2/07

(1). Lisa, my sister! No need to apologize, you yourself have shown great character while others have disagreed with your spiritual understanding of scripture. Though none of us will see eye to eye on everything, its how we treat our fellow man, that God truly wants out of us.

Matt 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
[47] And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
---Billy on 1/2/07

(2). Lisa, I think that Matt 5:46,47 lets us know how we should treat all men, and not just our brothers and sisters. Lisa, youve been a joy to talk to even when we dont agree, and youve always shown love in your responses to me and all the others that you converse with, so no apology needed. God bless you Lisa, and will look forward to debating such a cheerful God fearing lady as yourself. God bless
---Billy on 1/2/07

Billy, I want to apologize to you and I am I on not wanting to answer you guys. I just don't believe in any of what both of you state concerning Scripture. Yet, what I have found out though, is that you two are man of character and class. I say this because I have yet to see either of you accuse or condemn anyone that is against what you believe. Both of you respond so different, with kindness and sincerity. I really appreciate that from both of you.
---lisa on 1/1/07

2. I have changed my mind Billy. I will answer any passages with you since I know you will not condemn me for my believes. Others here would send you to hell if they could and close the door for disagreeing with them. Some kind of Christians. I will do my best to answer you but it will be one passage at a time to have some control, and one subject at a time. Thank you both for been so kind in your answers. This does not mean I don't stand for what I believe in my heart. That never changes.
---lisa on 1/1/07

The moderator is correct. You are uninformed. A study of hell would reveal the three. Hades or Sheol, the grave of all who sleep. Gehenna, the lake of fire and Tartarus, the place for the fallen angels. Only Hades or Sheol and Tartarus currently exist.

Isaiah 45:6-7 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

1/ Ernst, thanks for responding to my post.

YOU WROTE: Who says or where is written that God also is in hell?? It is said, that Jesus was between his death and resurrection in hell, to preach the gospel, but this isn't sure.

Psalm 139:8 (KVJ): If I make my bed in HELL, behold, thou art there.
---I_AM_I on 12/27/06

2/ Ernst

YOU WROTE: Is there any reason for God to be in hell?

Yes! God is omnipresent or universal. God is everywhere, including in hell (Psalm 139:8), heaven and earth (Jer. 23:24), WITHIN US (Luke 17:21 and Acts 17:2429) and in all of creation (Roman 1:20). Have I left anywhere out?

YOU WROTE: "hell is absence of God!"

Please explain this further. What do you mean by *absence of God?*
---I_AM_I on 12/27/06

3/ Ernst

YOU WROTE: Who says that God created "evil"? God created angels. Lucifer made himself to Satan! He and many angels have been thrown out from heaven, they would be like God! Adam also would be like God, which caused the fall of man.

Isaiah 45:7 (KJV): I make peace, and create EVIL.

I know Rev. 12:7 9 says Satan was thrown out of heaven. However, do you have any verse that says Satan was an angel BEFORE becoming Satan?

4/ Ernst

Was Satan thrown out of heaven (Rev. 12: 7 9) or was he created the devil FROM THE BEGINNING? 1 John 3:8: the devil sinned from the beginning! Ernst, Satan is evil and God created evil (Isa. 45:7). Therefore, God created Satan!!!

Now, what exactly is Satan or the devil and what is sin?

Also, how did Adam wanting to be God as you said caused the fall of man? Didn*t God acknowledge that Adam is like God? Gen 3:22. God bless.
---I_AM_I on 12/27/06

Dear "I am I",
Who says that God created "evil"? God created angels. Lucifer made himself to Satan! He and many angels have been thrown out from heaven, they would be like God! Adam also would be like God, which caused the fall of man.
The Lord didn't create programmed computers, and we may be happy, that our computers haven't "a free will"!! When our computers don't obey we throw them away!! How wonderful is the Lord, that HE saves us!
---Ernst3769 on 12/26/06

Dear I am I,
Who says or where is written that God also is in hell?? It is said, that Jesus was between his death and resurrection in hell, to preach the gospel, but this isn't sure. You also asks, where hell is. Do you know where heaven is? Between Getsemane and his death on the cross, Jesus was going through a real hell, because God left him! That's why I say: "hell is absence of God!" Is there any reason for God to be in hell?
---ernst3769 on 12/26/06

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 18:9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Psalms 106:17-18 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
Numbers 26:10 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign.
And that sign is for those who contradict Gods word, the liars, and, the gain Sayers, that resist the teaching and authority of Jesus.

Audrey: Well done! In fact the root of the word "Gehenna" is "the valley of the Sons of Hinnom." That valley lies just outside Jerusalem and is indeed the town garbage dump - a place where the trash fires burn "continually."
---jerry6593 on 12/26/06

Audrey - ("A merciful God does not have an ever burning fire awaiting mortals") -- Oh yes, He does. Matthew 25:41 "Depart from Me you cursed, into the everlasting fire..." Revelation 20:15 "And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire". God in His mercy has provided free salvation by sending His Son Jesus Christ to become a Man and die on the Cross for sin. (continued...)
---Helen_5378 on 12/26/06

2/... For all those who reject God's offer of free salvation He will cast them into the everlasting fire of Hell. God is love, and He is also a righteous Judge. Why would anybody who does not want Jesus in this life think they would want Him for all of eternity? Sin is man's problem and Christ has already paid for it with His life on the Cross. Choose Christ today.

Hell is 'hades' a hole in the ground. A grave. 'Gehenna' was a place where they would throw dead bodies and garbage. Everything was 'burnt up.' A merciful God does not have an ever burning fire awaiting mortals. This myth was popularized by Dante Alagere in his Divine Comedy.
---Audrey on 12/25/06

I AM; I notice you used the scripture " the Kingdom is within you" which comes from the KJV in the margin (of some) it says "or among" meaning the Kingdom is in your midst,or among you rather than the implication that somehow it is within your being! IMHO In reality a Kingdom is a King and subjects.
---1st_cliff on 12/25/06

Hell is a place where mattresses of maggots lay, it is a place of suffering, disease, sickness and every other foul spirit. There are liars, cheaters, robbers, perverts, sodomites, and evil occults who cause chaos, confusion, torture and abuse. They hate anyone that loves the Lord and try to keep them from God
---tonne on 12/25/06

No, I do not agree with you . To
even think such a thing is ludicrous. I do believe there is a Hell and I am certain God could and would visit there is He chose to. Hell is a very real place and to doubt it is to gamble with your soul.

YOU WROTE to 1st Cliff: For anything without faith is sin. As I said before, you are trying to lead the believer away from his faith, that to me is evil. 12/22/06

TO LESLIE and others who say hell is a place, please tell me where this place is. The Bible says hell is IN, ON and UNDER the earth. Some people spent tremendous time searching the earth for hell. They even searched the seas and oceans. If any one knows where this place is, let us know, because I would like to volunteer to go free my brothers and sisters in God from this place!!! Like the Kingdom of God ( Luke 17:21), hell is WITHIN. I have been there and I am going through there now.
---I_AM_I on 12/23/06

2/ Leslie and others

Oh, ya! I am being burnt too, because God is Spirit (John 4:24) and God is a consuming fire (Heb 12:29). Therefore, God is a consuming SPIRITUAL FIRE. God burns us more than any literal fire in hell ever can!!! However, in the end, we are ALL SAVED after passing through the fire that is God!!! 1 Cor. 3:11-15. Even those born again must burn the envy, jealousy, mean-- spiritedness, HATE, etc., out of their hearts. God bless.
---I_AM_I on 12/23/06

Hell is a place where there is fire & brimstone, constant pain & torture, nashing of the teeth - a place where even a drop of water for your tonge will not be granted. Satan & his demons were once angels that fell from Heaven when they thought that they were better than God.

Cliff, I don't know all the answers but a true believe will work hard to find the truth. They don't try to distroy the faith in a believer. That is what you do in every blog. Everything a Christian holds true, you turn around and distroy it. You have been doing this for a long time and now there is a few that believe what you say. I cannot stop you from distroying the faith, but God can. You think you are so smart that you can confuse us all, but it is faith we live by, not smartness.
---lisa on 12/22/06

2. I have never called anyone evil or that they are not saved, or that they have the devil, but in your case, there is nothing of faith in Christ in you, so everything you say is against the very thing we believe in. So it must be evil. For anything without faith is sin. As I said before, you are trying to lead the believer away from his faith, that to me is evil. You have been doing this now for a long time. I hope no one else listens to you. You are a force working against our faith.
---lisa on 12/22/06

(1). Lisa, ive never said that I read something thats caused be to believe what I do, I said that through the years of my christian life that even though I was tought that punishment was eternal, that something spoke to my spirit that this couldnt be the truth. I know that this might not be word for word, but I know that Ive never said that I read this from an outside source. Lisa, you might have me confused with someone else that has said this, but it wasnt me.
---Billy on 12/21/06

(2). Lisa, you know that ive always stated that the wicked are judged, and dont escape being punished, so please dont accuse me of something that I didnt say. If you dont want to debate with me about the destiny of all humanity, I cant push you "and never would" to do something you dont want to do. This sight allows many to express there beliefs, so will you ignore me when I comment to your posts on other blogs? Lisa, I love you as a sister and this will never change.

Hell is a place where the holy are persecuted by the unholy. Internationally today people are suffering horrible persecutions. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, rulers and authorities in the heavenly realm. Guantanomo is a prime example.

You do have a right Billy, everyone does. It is with love I say what I say to you Billy, not becuase I don't like you. You told me once you believe in eternal punishment, but something you read from someone gave you insight to the real truth. Whatever that thing that gave you that insight is wrong. But then again you do have a right. I wanted to state to you what Scripture says about someone that tramples God's Word and I guess it has no meaning to you. So I will leave you to your believes Billy.

Billy, I did not miss anything in Isa.33: Verse 15 is talking about the righeous. Not the unrighteous. The only survivors in the presence of the Almighty will be the righteous, for they were imputed the righteousness of Christ when they came to faith. (Pss.15:1-5; 24:3,4). Verse 16, place of defense..bread..water" is for those who are right with God and will enjoy perfect security and ample provisions. (32:15, 17, 18).
---lisa on 12/20/06

2. The unrighteous are not in the presence of God, but separated eternally from Him. You have to read the whole context of what is written Billy. Again I say you are promoting no punishment, but ultimate salvation to everyone, which is completely contrary to Scripture teaching, and the penalty for those who have been enlighten and trample God's Word will receive a worse punishment. I would suggest to argue passages but do not promote "universalism."

Peter, you are wrong, you were put here because of God. Every person born has no say where they are born, or even the choice to be born to whom they are born. You said it is the divine plan that we have created with our minds. How can it be a divine plan if you created in your mind? It is a divine plan and you have no say in it whatsoever. What God purposed is coming to pass and it will end they way He has ordained it to end. He already knows how many, and who they are that will believe.
---lisa on 12/20/06

2. nothing you do will change the divine plan of God. Christianity is not "dualism." We do not believe in two ultimate equal forces locked in an eternal struggle or battle, for supremacy. If Satan were equal to God, we would have no confidence, no hope of good triumphing over evil. Satan is evil to be sure, but even his evil is subject to the sovereignty of God, as our own evil. God's authority is ultimate His power is Omnipotent, He is Sovereign, or else He is not God.

1st Cliff, this scripture tells us a lot about when the fire has done its job.

Pro 26:20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.

1st cliff, when man tries to analize and scrutinize and theologize and dissect God's word down into it's very minute particles, and then study it under a magnifying scope and conclude, Aha! I got it! Then they have missed the whole truth, for by straining out the gnat they have swallowed a camel. God's word is so simple and pure, that even a small child is able understand. But you will believe whatever you desire.

1/ Lisa, I have yet to meet anyone on this site who takes lightly the word of God. God*s word is spiritual because God is Spirit and we must worship God in spirit and truth. John 4:24. Not only is God Spirit, God is also a consuming fire. Hebrew 12:29. Thus, God is that Spiritually Confusing Fire that burns ALL of us, including those who think they are born again or children of God through adoption or heirship! Lisa, here is a secret: a physical fire cannot burn an invisible spirit!!!
---I_AM_I on 12/19/06

2/ Lisa, hell is WITHIN, just like the Kingdom of God (Luke 17:21) and THE CHRIST, as Paul has said. All of us, including those born again, must carry our cross like Yeshua and manifest THE CHRIST on earth! If we do not manifest THE CHRIST on earth, how can we do GREATER works than Yeshua who manifested THE CHRIST on earth?
