Hell and The Soul-Winner

Here are some thoughts on the subject of Hell to motivate the soul-winner to keep on spreading the Gospel each and every day.

Rev. 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
  1. Hell is a real place and it is inevitable for the lost man.
  2. God will separate Himself from all who go to Hell and that is inescapable.
  3. Hell was never made for man but for Satan and his angels.
  4. God has never sent a person to Hell; man chooses to go to Hell.
  5. Payment for sin is the reason men have to go to Hell.
  6. God has provided the payment for all men to be saved through His son Jesus Christ.
  7. God has instructed saved men to warn others who are lost.
  8. Men can avoid eternity in Hell if you provide the opportunity of sharing the Gospel with them.
  9. Many believers soon forget that there is a literal Hell and never warn anyone.
  10. We (the local church) are to warn men about Hell until the rapture.
  11. We (personally) are to warn men about Hell until the day we die.
  12. You can make a difference in someone's eternal destination by sharing the Gospel with them.
  13. You can make a difference in a family's eternal destination by sharing the Gospel with them.
  14. Hell is avoidable but we must make it available.

Will you provide an opportunity for someone to miss Hell and make Heaven their eternal destination???

Do you pick and choose bible verses which teach only what you believe??? Let's look at what the word of God says; Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

What about the rich man and the beggar Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31? The rich man lifted up his eyes, was thirsty, and feared that his brothers would join him there if one did not warn them; all three of those things are pretty amazing for a dead man. Luke 16:23a And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, 24b for I am tormented in this flame. 25b but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 28b lest they also come into this place of torment.

One last example, in Rev. 20 we read where the Devil will be loosed after spending a thousand years in the bottomless pit... Re 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. The beast and the false prophet are still there after a thousand years?

In this post, we read where the dead will be judged and cast into the lake of fire... the dead which died throughout the days of mankind will all stand before God. Physical death is not the end... they still must face God... and suffer everlasting punishment for not accepting Jesus Christ as their personal saviour. 2 Th. 1:7-9 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.

David, please read the word of God, and not rely upon the tradition of man....

If Matt. 25:46 teaches that man lives forever in hell, that means man is born with immortality.

Paul teaches distinctly and properly about the subject of man being mortal.

In Ro. 2:7 he says that we seek immortality. Is Paul saying that we seek something that we were born with?

In I Cor. 15:53,54, he says that we put on immortality in Christ.
Can we put something on which we already have? Is Paul saying to us that we are mortal, and therefore it is here that we find Christ?

In II Ti. 1:10, he is saying that immortality came by Christ and Christ alone.

If man is born with immortality and lives forever in hell, then why did Paul say that Christ brought immortality?

Scripture here is clearly speaking on the subject of man being mortal and how he obtains immortality.

How do the scriptures harmonize?
The penelty for sin is death, Ro. 6:23
Did Christ paid this price? Yes, he tasted death for every man, He.2:9

Did Christ pay the price which the supposed doctrine of hell teaches, which is to live and burn and suffer eternally in hell?

He arose on the third day,I Cor. 15:4. Since this is indeed the truth, then even Christ does not pay the price which this doctrine of hell supposes.

Appearently Christ did not agree that the penalty for sin is to live and suffer torment eternally in hell....for he arose.

Just what do these verses really mean then, which seem to teach that man is going to pay the price for his sin in the eternal hell?

Appearently something else than to live in hell forever. Death
is a punishment; most would agree that this is true, Mark 7:10.

Death is punishment which is final. It is therefore a penalty for sin which is indeed eternal...for they are not coming back!

The N.T. uses the term 'perish' in regard to the fate of the sinner, Jn. 3:16.

This term agrees with the terms used in the O.T. concerning the fate of the wicked.

The terms found regarding the wicked and sinful and unbelievers are:die, destroy, perish, perdition and destruction.

If these terms have meaning, what do they mean; especially in context with the terms of: life, live, immortality and eternal life?

If you look up these terms concerning die, destroy, perish, etc...they all mean the same thing.

Perish is defined at( as: to be destroyed, to pass away, or disappear, to die or be destroyed (esp. in a violent manner), to pass from existance.

The term hell is translated from two Greek words gehenna and hades, both meaning grave or pit.
For a thorough study on these as well as sheol, the O.T. term, see:

Also do take a time to look at:

God bless you in your patient carefull and dedicated study of God's word.

I will allow myself one more comment regarding your post... it is very plain that you do not believe in the doctrine of Hell, a topic which Jesus, our Lord and Saviour spoke much of during this ministry here on earth. As a matter of fact, Jesus was speaking in the first verse you mentioned which I had posted, Matt. 25:46, which says, "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." Why is the word everlasting needed in that clear statement, if death and the grave is the end of the sinner??? You quickly bypassed that statement by Jesus Christ, and quickly began quoting Paul.... Paul's gospels do not even contain the word Hell within them; apparently you would rather just read that portion of scripture and ignore the other parts???

You ignored totally the scriptures I mentioned in my four statements. You also made it quite clear you do not believe in a literal place called Hell, since you mentioned the "supposed doctrine of Hell."

Man has a soul... he is different from the animal kingdom. God breathed a living soul into Adam when he was created. The soul is the part of you that makes you who you are.... the body is what we see, but the soul is your mind, will, and your emotions.

Jesus told Nicodemous you must be born again.... not the physical body, but his soul... we are born sinners, and if we do not accept the gift of God which he provided in His Son, Jesus Christ, who paid our sin penalty on the cross, then we will suffer the penalty of our sin in Hell; the second death as described in Revelation. Man born once, but that dies twice, will suffer everlasting punishment in Hell, or the lake of fire. Man that is born twice, both the body and the soul, will only die once, physical death, but the soul will live eternally with God in Heaven. "Ye must be born again.." Apparently, your coin only has one side, which is this one. Turn your coin over.... you'll see that it does have a flipside. It's Heaven, or Hell. The soul will live eternally either in Heaven or Hell.

Please don't ignore the clear teaching of Hell within God's word. You are doing a great injustice to man if you teach them that their sin will only result in physical death.

Mark 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Jesus spoke these words; what is the point in having a fire that never shall be quenched, especially after the Great White Throne judgment, where sinners are plunged into the lake of fire... if death ends it all, why does the fire never need to be quenched??? Why does the worm dieth not???

2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

Many years take place between these two events, yet the disobedient angels will still face judgment by God, after spending many years in hell. Does God plan to awake them from their death???

Rev. 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Psalm 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Psalm 116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

If death ended it all, why are these words used; sorrows, pains, trouble, sorrow; it sounds as if he was still alive in Hell, does it not? Just as the rich man lifted up his eyes, thirsted, and pleaded that someone would witness to his brothers so that they would not join him in this awful place. If death was it, then why this teaching from Jesus Christ???

The soul is immortal... the body is simply a covering. Man is born with a soul. Man has a choice of where he will spend eternity... with God in Heaven, or with Satan in the lake of fire.

Where will your soul be when you die???
