Hell.”And others save with fear.” Hell and the hereafter.
Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
The season for forgiveness is almost over, the times of the gentiles is almost fulfilled, the reign of the non-Jew is almost finished. Sense the fall of Israel, the gentiles have ruled this world in its manner, making, laws and judgments according to their limited knowledge of God and His word. Leaning upon their own understanding. The times of the gentiles has been a time of wars and rumors of wars, a time of desiese and unholyness, a time of changeing the truth of Gods word into a lie, a misconception, a time of false religions and doctrine, and all of this in the name of freedom of religion.
If you’ve noticed, in the times after the Bible had been written, very little has been heard of Israel and its people, until the reistablishment of the Jewish nation. Now every where you turn, Israel has been in the spotlight. So what’s next for the gentiles? Judgment after ones death. For death waits for no-one, its inevitable and unrelenting. Believing in God and Christ is an individual matter but just believing in God is not enough for ones salvation. Paul stated that; He held to the doctrine that we are justified by faith; James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
No one forces you to believe, no one forces you to worship, but remember that no-one forces God to forgive. Isaiah, Daniel, and many others in scripture, believed in Hell. Many also believed in Hell, who do not believe in God. In scripture, Hell, is symbolized as a Pit. Isa 14:15-22; Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell( Inferno region, pit, neither region, perdition) to the sides of the pit(Cavern, Whole). They that see thee shall narrowly(In a narrow manner, not allowing for exceptions.) look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, “Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?”
Speech in Hell is documented by scripture, showing feelings of, pain, suffering, regret and dis-allusion-ment. All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. Prepare slaughter for his children(Armageddon)(The un-believers, the Lost) for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.( This statement proves that the Earth shall be rebuilt and be inhabited by others that will be forced to worship the True God.)
(Zec 14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.) For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord. (All men shall die, no one shall be spared, there shall be wailing, greaving and gnashing of teeth, the Lord shall be triumphant over all.) Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance(Overbearing, haughty, pride, domineering, snobbish.) of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. Isa 13:8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
Eze 32:23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which caused terror in the land of the living. Isa 38:18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. Luk 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Luke 16:24 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. Job.10:21-22, Isa.14:9.
The following circumstances are related of it in this parable:
1.It is “far off” from the abodes of the righteous. Lazarus was seen “afar off.” (The distance between Heavan and Hell is realised by these passages.)
2.It is a place of torment.(Hell is a place in the physical, Hell is not a spiritual meaning but a reality.)
3.There is a great gulf fixed between Hell and Heaven, Luke 16:26. (A gulf is an un-bridgeable disparity,(Chasm, a failure of understanding)(fixed means, unmovable, unchangeable)
4.The suffering is great. It is represented by “torment” in a flame, Luke.16:24.( We can state according to scripture, Flames without light, heat of the utmost extream without the addition of light, IE., Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
5.There will be no escape from it, Luke 16:26. IE., Psalms 50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Barnes states about Hell;(quote), The word “hell” here means, therefore, that dark, obscure, and miserable place, far from heaven, where the wicked shall be punished forever. He lifted up his eyes – A phrase in common use among the Hebrews, meaning “he looked,” Gen.13:10; Gen.18:2; Gen.31:10; Deu.8:3; Luke.6:20. Being in torment – The word “torment” means “pain, anguish” Mat.4:24; particularly the pain inflicted by the ancients in order to induce people to make confession of their crimes. These “torments” or tortures were the keenest that they could inflict, such as the rack, or scourging, or burning; and the use of the word here denotes that the sufferings of the wicked can be represented only by the extremest forms of human suffering. It is more, perhaps, than we are authorized to infer, that the wicked will “see” those who are in paradise.
That they will “know” that they are there is certain; but we are not to suppose that they will be so near together as to be seen, or as to make conversation possible. These circumstances mean that there will be “a separation,” and that the wicked in hell will be conscious that the righteous, though on earth they were poor or despised, will be in heaven. Heaven and hell will be far from each other, and it will be no small part of the misery of the one that it is far and forever removed from the other.(Unquote.)
