We find many references to this subterranean place called "Hell" throughout Holy Scripture. A wretched deplorable place serving as the final destination for those considered unworthy to participate in God's original plan for the earth. Those who were mortal, but not finding their name in the Lambs book of life are to be banished to hell for eternity. The fallen angels (devils) who knew their fate, and were never mortal will finally come to know the endless years of torment in Hell.
From all indications we find Almighty God has displayed mercy even for those cased out of heaven, those devils that are now still free to roam the earth and cause trouble. The fallen angels removed from heaven were spared from the immediate torment of the fires of Hell. Some usefulness was found in using them to test the hearts and minds of mankind. After the first human beings (Adam) indiscretion we now have the knowledge of Good and Evil, which makes mankind fully fledged participates in this war of Good and Evil. Just as in any war their will be casualties, our soul being the price paid for allowing evil to draw the unfortunate away from what's Good and Holy.
A sound understanding of Scripture reveals Heaven and Hell will exist here on earth. This being the case it is reasonable that some may speculate on the location of hell. At this present time, we cannot find or point to a place in operation that meets the Scriptural description of Hell on earth. This being the case we can however examine the earth for Hell's possible future location. In a sincere effort to solve this mystery our research has determined the possible entrance of Hell to be the Dead Sea area.
In this land area below sea level we have the proof evolution is all a big lie. For little grows there neither has anything evolved. This area also rests on a fault line, which is a crack in the earths crust. This fault line is a closed door at this point in time keeping back hot magma, but it's the unique thinning of the earths crust in this particular location under the Dead Sea that is without explanation. Some ingredients of brimstone could be salt and sulfur combined with great heat. It's true Sulfur leaks up to the surface on occasion, and the tremendous amount of salt is what the Dead sea is known for.
These are some of the factors which greatly contributed to the speculation about Hell's location:
1. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and still sinking, which suggests a thinning of the earth crust beneath this sea. In 1940 this Sea was 1293 ft below sea level, today its 1360 feet below sea level which is a sizable drop in the earth surface and the area is . Along the rift valley area of the Dead Sea scientist figure the area is sinking at a rate of 12 to 13 inches a year.
2. Little grows there or has grown there which tends to symbolize death; it seems this may be a suitable environment for the living dead.
3. The close proximity to the land of Edom; also known as Idumea, are grouped together in the same area with places and peoples such as Sodom and Gomorrah where the wrath from God brought forth severe chastisement.
4. The composition of the terrain itself with all the sinkholes, salt, and the increased density of oxygen enhances the combustion of burning materials being significantly below sea level.
In the past a sinkhole was used to destroy the wicked who took delight in idol worship, and making a golden calf in the days Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt. The Dead Sea roughly 50 miles long, and 11 miles wide and is large enough to hold billions of souls. Some of the descriptions of hell, such as the" Abyss" and the "Bottomless pit" helps illuminate the concept of hell descending inward, and downward. With the core of the earth said to be hotter than the surface of the sun we find this factual information being consistent with the notion of severe punishment.
Whether the Dead Sea, or some other location which will be the address of hell will be widely known in due time. We know for sure hell as described in the bible will exist right here on earth, however we don't know exactly when hell will come into existence in terms of an exact date or time. In terms of a pattern of political events one can determine things which were foretold that will lead up to hell's existence. When one considers what's within the earth we have clues all over the world confirming Hell-like conditions already exist.
The dynamics behind volcanic activity helps illustrate the overwhelming heat is already in place for the future formation of Hell. The speculation on the location of hell is one thing, however a far more ominous consideration is the physical transformation which allows one to endure great temperatures without being consumed away by the intense heat. Vague clues of the power, or spirit that allows things to burn, but not consume away is illustrated by the little we know of the burning bush which lead Moses to the mountain of the Lord. This great mystery of how a mortal becomes immortal only God knows; however written in Holy Scripture are many warnings speaking of Hell being not only a "place", but also a "physical condition".
This is to say our body and soul is actually the same thing, those dead souls will again become living souls, which must appear before God and receive judgment. After an assessment of ones works before the Lord the people will receive a judgment on the type of new and permanent bodies they are worthy of. These permanent bodies will be pretty much the same as the bodies we possess at this time, except that they are said to be composed of a different type of flesh, which is immortal.
The living dead is the description for those who will undergo the second death, this horrible physical condition which includes pain, foul odor, maggots, and fire will make it necessary that their be an separation. This artist rendition of Hell shows what Hell may or, may not look like it can be logically be determine that hell will be much more crowded then this artists rendition.
"Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations (Isaiah 14:9)".
Thrones here is really talking about ones grave, or wherever ones remains are found.
"They shall not lie with the mighty [that are] fallen of the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living (Ezekiel 32:27)".
"Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28)".
The body and the soul are one in the same according to scripture, a living soul is the same as a living person. A dead soul also considered a dead body no longer has the breath of life, and is placed in the earth just as for example a seed is placed in the earth. The deceased natural body/soul now awaits resurrection though the power of the Heavenly Father . The son of God who for a time lived as a flesh and blood man, who's name is Yeshua, also known as Jesus, was the first to reveal to the world the resurrection from the dead.
From all visible indications the son of God's body/soul appeared the same as it did before his death, however he became much different in being celestial. All the rules pertaining to the abilities of celestial beings are different. The most noteworthy difference is that immortally had taken place, and the ability to appear in a glorified state of brightness was possible and could be controlled at will.
"I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, and have the keys of hell and of death. (Revelation 1:18)".
"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; spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making [them] an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; ( 2 Peter 2:4-6)".
Documentation of the great flood is provided in the form of a video to demonstrate beyond a shadow of doubt that worldwide destruction had taken place to cleanse the earth of wickedness and corruption. Human beings are allowed their free will to choose good or evil, and the accountability often spoke of in Holy Scripture will inevitably take place bringing great rewards, or hideous consequences.
To know and recognize (here and now in our day) the actual remaining worldwide damage caused by the flood of Noah's day, is an sobering warning of the next cleansing of the earth. Some view the history of Noah as myth or conjecture, but it is indeed actually fact. The development insight moving one closer to wisdom is tremendously beneficial to those working toward avoiding the wrath of God. What greater love can one show for oneself and growing family than to heed the warnings provided by Almighty God.
The next stern judgment must be performed in the earth, it must be done for the great benefit of future generations. It's our responsibility as human beings to show ourselves worthy of not being cut off from the goodness and the glory that was always intended for the Lord's creation.
" I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8)".
"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. Death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:13-14)".
It's true Spiritual matters are not easily delineated because they seem far removed from anything we have witnessed or are accustom too. In an honest and forthright effort to convey understanding of the concepts revealed in Holy Scripture it has been determined that an fictional depiction of these concepts be utilized. The only information that was found which met the criterion of demonstrating or explaining the second death, known as the living death as ironic as it may seem are night of the living dead type movies.
Bare in mind the type of fictional information spoke of is mentioned as a tool of understanding that can be used to develop insight, and help to bring some illumination to the concept known as the second death. In all honesty any production for viewing man can dream up, or imagine can only fall short of explaining the horrible realties of hell. We as mortals know so little about the spiritual or celestial we cannot determine what methods of punishment will exist or the severity. What may seem extremely crude to mortals, may be rudimentary or primitive to those who are immortal. As human beings it's so much we just don't know, and the best suggestion that can be made to mankind is to follow the path of wisdom.
This statement is written in Holy Scripture and who is it that finds reason to doubt or dispute this plea to ones better judgment ? "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31)".
