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" (Matthew 25:30).
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
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" (Revelation 21:8).
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
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"
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
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 never quenched!
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
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 truly needs.
