What does the Bible say about Hell?

Hell is a place of eternal damnation for those who rejected the Gospel of Christ..... described as a horrifying place.
Matthew 18:8-9 describes the eternal fire of Hell.
Matthew 3:12 speaks of unquenchable fire.
Revelation 20 describes the lake of burning sulfur and place of perpetual torment.

Hell is a place of constant agony and is set aside for all of those who reject Jesus Christ. No person on earth would willingly walk into hell. But so many people are doing just that. Despite warnings people continue to live in denial and are walking straight into Hell.
If this is you, please consider heeding the warnings of Scripture and answering the call of the Holy Spirit by accepting Jesus as your personal Savior.
1 John 1:9 promises, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Why would a God of love send someone to Hell?

Many people waver whether or not to become a follower of Jesus because of this question..... How can a God of mercy allow people to go to Hell?
Each and everyone of us is born with a sinful nature. The sad thing is we are destined for Hell.
The Bible says “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
But..... What if God has provided the way of escape?
Wouldn't that display mercy?
It is God's desire that no person would suffer an eternity in Hell. The Bible says, "He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance" (2 Pet. 3:9).

God could not allow sin to go unpunished..... But being merciful, God sent His very own Son to be the final payment for the sins of those who believe. It only takes faith. God gave so much but required so little...... That is the epitome of a God of love.

Will the person who goes to hell cease to exist?

The body of the person who is lost or refused to accept Christ as Savior will be resurrected from the grave. This body will be supernatural and indestructible. It will join with the person's soul for eternity.
"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" (Rev. 20:12-15).

It is a state of dying eternally.... but death will never be achieved. Jesus warned about those headed for eternity apart from God and the second death.

Is Hell eternal?

We are brought into this earthly world as eternal beings. Our life here is simply a stop in God's plan.

We can't even begin to get a glimmer of what Heaven and Hell are really like. The only thing that we can comprehend is that each and every single one was created by God the Father. God wishes that "none of us should perish."

Because of God's great love for us..... his children, He gives us free will.
We are given the choice to either accept or reject....
Just as we want our children to come to us willingly and lovingly, God wants us to come to him that same way.... and as much as we love our children God loves us...... plus infinity.

The choices are either Heaven or Hell. It is that simple and it is "forever"
He doesn't send anyone there.... we choose our final home.
Hell has to be forever because Heaven is forever. What would be the reason for anyone to choose Heaven if we knew we would eventually "get out" of Hell?
Hell is a consequence of a choice we make.

The Bible refers to the fate of the unsaved with such fearful words as the following:

“Shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2)
“Everlasting punishment” (Matthew 25:46)
“Weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 24:51)
“Fire unquenchable” (Luke 3:17)
“Indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish” (Romans 2:8,9)
“Everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord” (2 Thessalonians 1:9)
“Eternal fire...the blackness of darkness for ever” (Jude 7,13)
Revelation 14:10,11 tells us the final, eternal destiny of the sinner: “He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone...the smoke of their torment ascended up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day or night."

When we say that Jesus Christ died for us, we simply mean that we deserved to die, but Jesus died in our place. The Bible says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Let me explain it this way. Suppose you had committed a serious crime and were brought before a judge for sentencing. There was no question about your guilt; you knew you had committed the crime, and you knew you deserved the sentence the judge was about to hand down. You had broken the law; the penalty had to be paid - and you were the one who had to pay it. Then the judge pronounced the sentence, and the deputies started to take you away to jail.
But then, suppose the judge suddenly ordered them to stop, stepped down from his bench and announced that he was going to take your place! You deserved to go to prison - but he was going instead! In other words, he was innocent but was willing to take upon himself the penalty that the law demanded for your crime - the penalty you should have paid.
This is what Jesus Christ has done for us. We deserve to die and be separated from God forever because of our sins - but Christ took our place. By His death on the cross He paid the price for our sins - fully and completely. In other words, He died for us; He died in our place. Now all we have to do is accept His forgiveness, by trusting Him alone for our salvation.

Have you opened your heart and life to Christ?
