Decription of Hell
(Picture of Hell from the movie "What Dreams May Come". Here hell is
depicted as being buried for eternity up to your next in mud with people
stepping on your head.
The most widely distributed Book in the history of the world
is the Bible.
THE BIBLICAL DESCRIPTION OF HELL
A place of weeping and gnashing of teeth - "And cast ye the unprofitable
servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth"
A place of outer darkness - "Then said the king to the servants, Bind him
hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 22:13).
A place of torments - "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,
and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom" (Luke 16:23).
A place of Sorrows - "The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of
death prevented me;" (2 Samuel 22:6).
A place of everlasting destruction - "Who shall be punished with everlasting
destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;"
(II Thessalonians 1:9).
A place where men are tormented with fire and brimstone - "But the fearful,
and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and
sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death"
A place where fire is not quenched - "Where their worm dieth not, and the
fire is not quenched" (Mark 9:44).
A bottomless pit - "And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a
smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the
air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit" (Revelation 9:2).
A place of no rest - "And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever
and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his
image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name" (Revelation 14:11).
It is ultimately a lake of fire - "And death and hell were cast into the
lake of fire. This is the second death" (Revelation 20:14).
A place of hopeless of unsatisfied desires - "And he cried and said, Father
Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his
finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame "
(Luke 16:24). The rich man wanted water but could not get any.
A place of hopelessness and suffering - as a woman is about to give birth to
a child, many go through painful labor that can last from a few minutes to a
few days. But through this painful anguishing time, there is hope that when
the child is born this terrible labor pain will subside. Just imagine if you
can if that pain was multiplied many times over and you would never have
hope of it ever going away forever? You would do anything to die to get rid
of the pain, but it would always remain and continue forever and ever and
ever. THIS IS HELL!
A place of memory - When a person is tormented with a bitter memory they
sometimes may commit suicide as a way out. In hell this is impossible
because your spirit will never die, but will always remember how you sold
your soul for the pleasures of this short sinful life. You will continue to
always wish you were in heaven instead of hell, if only you would have made
the right decision.
Oh man or woman, boy or girl without Christ, if only you would realize how
dangerously close you are to hell. With each second that passes by, you are
drawing nearer and nearer to hell. Actually this night your soul may be
required of you and will pass into an eternity of the fires of hell that are
Oh how completely the opposite is the Christian who knows the Lord Jesus as
their Lord and Savior. They are living for Him now and wait with expedient
hope of His return or when they will also get to pass into eternity and
experience the complete glorious bliss called heaven.
Why do most people give up heaven for hell?
A). Is it because they don't want to change their lives and live for their
creator who is really the only one worthy of living for? Is it because they
want to live for themselves their own way until their hearts are content?
Those who live this way believe that this will give them happiness. But
sadly, they are giving up heaven for not only hell, but failures, despair,
and some times of what some would call hell on earth. This kind of living
will never "fill the void" or will never bring "fulfillment", but will
always amount in a longing for more out of life. As a person lives for
themselves they become selfish. This selfishness brings forth sin, and sin
only produces death and destruction.
By rejecting Christ, people are really giving up a heaven on earth. The void
is completely filled with the only one that can fill it. Jesus Christ is the
only one who brings true purpose and meaning to lives, not material items. A
hope of eternal life with Christ the Savior fulfills and is all the heart
