6 Truths About Hell

1. Hell is a literal place of fire in the centre of the earth (00:35).

  1. Down and low
    1. Deuteronomy 32:22 – first mention “lowest hell”
    2. Psalm 55:15 – “down quick into hell”
    3. Ezekiel 31:16-17 – “down” “descend” “nether”
    4. Matthew 11:23 – “brought down to hell”
  2. Mark 9:43-48 – better for thee to enter into life maimed
    1. Why would Christ warn about it if it didn’t even exist?
  3. Matthew 26:24
    1. Better to not be born than go to hell
    2. People that scoff at hell don’t really know what it is like.
  4. Make sure you’re saved – If you believe you’ve no need to fear hell
  5. Soulwinning isn’t a game, souls are at stake. Get involved. Get motivated.

2. Hell is God’s righteous judgement, not Satan’s headquarters (10:51).

  1. Satan is not the god of hell
    1. “Out of the pits of hell” doesn’t make sense because only Jesus has the keys to exit death and hell (Revelation 1:18)
    2. Matthew 16:18-19 – gates of hell / keys of the kingdom of heaven
    3. Matthew 23:14-15 – “child of hell”
    4. Revelation 9:1-12 – creatures from hell are a judgement from God.
  2. Satan will one day be cast into hell
    1. Mat 25:41 – prepared for the devil and his angels
    2. Isaiah 14:9-15 – fallen from heaven and cast down to hell
    3. Rev 20:1-10 – devil thrown into bottomless pit then lake of fire

3. Hell is an eternal punishment, not a temporary chastisement (27:17).

  1. Revelation 19:19 beast and false prophet thrown into lake of fire
  2. Matthew 25:46 – everlasting punishment
  3. John 3:36 – wrath of God abideth on him – how can it “abide” on you if you no longer exist?
  4. Daniel 12:1-2 – everlasting contempt
  5. Weaker arguments
    1. Luke 16:19-24 – rich man was in hell fire – but destruction happens at the “lake of fire”.
    2. 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 – everlasting destruction – but “destroyed forever”

4. An eternal hell is a fair punishment for sin (35:40).

  1. The underlying assumption is you have created a standard apart from the Word of God to judge what is and isn’t a fair punishment for sin.
  2. We need to start with the Word of God and then build our thinking.
  3. Genesis 18:16-33 – will not the Judge of all the earth do right?
  4. Deuteronomy 4:5-10 – righteous judgements
    1. Do I think the death penalty is too harsh?
      1. eg. Sabbath
      2. Am I a more righteous judge than God?
  5. Revelation 16:4-7 – true and righteous
  6. Why eternal?
    1. All hope is removed from those that refused to hope in God.
    2. Job 41:1-10, 34 – king over pride

5. Hell is not separation from God (45:55).

  1. It is not just a burning and longing for the goodness of God
  2. Revelation 14:9-11 – in the presence of the Lamb
  3. 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 – from God’s presence and glory
  4. Psalm 139:7-10 – behold thou art there

6. Hell vs The Lake of Fire (49:51).

  1. The lake of fire is where hell will be relocated.
  2. Revelation 20:14-15 – cast into the lake of fire
  3. Matthew 10:28 – destroy both soul and body in hell
  4. Matthew 5:29-30 – the body is being destroyed in hell fire.
