HELL

Introduction

So, 1) What is hell? 2) Where is hell? 3) Does hell exist? 4) Is hell just symbolism for something Spiritual? 5) Is hell this earth, in the here and now, under Satan’s rule? 6) Why is there a place called hell? 7) Who goes there, or who will be sent there? 8) Where does the word come from? 9) How many hells are there? 10) Is there a fiery hell? 11) Is it just the grave – a hole in the ground? 12) Is the Roman Catholic take on hell, true, that is, Purgatory? 13) Why all the confusion about this word hell? 14) Can we rely on the ‘experts’ for their interpretations of this word, even Mr Strong in his Concordance? 15) Why all the comical jokes and cartoons about, what would seem to be, such a serious subject?

There are over three quarters of a million words in the King James Bible, that’s 770,430 words to be precise, but with the word ‘hell’ mentioned only 54 times, in 54 verses, in the whole Bible, and that equates to a miniscule 0.007009073%. So what’s the big deal about this little place or concept of a place called hell? Hopefully all will be revealed in this series of articles.

Before I start, let’s deal with the etymology of the word ‘hell’ (that’s question No. 8 in my introduction list) in order to build our foundation, for it may turn out that just the use of this word hell’ is itself a gross deception:

From The Online Etymology Dictionary:

Hell (noun):

Also Hell, Old English hel, helle, “nether world, abode of the dead, infernal regions, place of torment for the wicked after death,” from Proto-Germanic *haljō “the underworld” (source also of Old Frisian helle, Old Saxon hellia, Dutch hel, Old Norse hel, German Hölle, Gothic halja “hell”). Literally “concealed place” (compare Old Norse hellir “cave, cavern”), from PIE root *kel- (1) “to cover, conceal, save.”

The English word may be in part from Old Norse mythological Hel (from Proto-Germanic *halija “one who covers up or hides something”), in Norse mythology the name of Loki’s daughter who rules over the evil dead in Niflheim, the lowest of all worlds (nifl “mist”). A pagan concept and word fitted to a Christian idiom. In Middle English, also of the Limbus Patrum, place where the Patriarchs, Prophets, etc. awaited the Atonement. Used in the KJV for Old Testament Hebrew Sheol and New Testament Greek Hades, Gehenna. Used figuratively for “state of misery, any bad experience” at least since late 14c. As an expression of disgust, etc., first recorded 1670s.”

As we can see, we’re straight into (Greek) mythology with words like ‘nether world’, ‘infernal regions’ and/or ‘places of torment’ and, with some of it starting as late as the 14th century. This is not really that old when compared to Old Testament times, where we have the Hebrew word ‘sheol’ being the only word in use for describing ‘hell’. However, notice how it’s referred to as: “A pagan concept and word fitted to a Christian idiom.” This alone tells us much, in that ‘hell’, in and of itself, is already a loaded, pagan, religious agenda driven word. I wonder who could be responsible for such a thing? Much mocking sarcasm here from the author.

Archetypal Image of the Mythological Hades (Hell)

Another interesting point is the Norse ‘mythological’ reference to ‘Niflheim’, which seems to have an uncanny resemblance to the Biblical Hebrew word ‘Nephilim’. This, in turn, raises two more interesting points, in that we have 1) a reference to the Norse people, who were one of the Israelite Tribes, namely Benjamin, and who had this Scriptural knowledge of the ‘Nephilim’, albeit cloaked in Norse mythology. And 2) that they believed there was a place of imprisonment for these fallen spirit beings ‘Niflheim’ or ‘Nephilim’, again, as made plain in the Holy Scriptures:

Jude 6 (KJV) And the angels (‘Nephilim’) 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.

Now this says to me that the real meaning of the word ‘hell’ is the place of imprisonment of the demons (nephilim) where Yashua Messiah cast them at the time of The Flood, and where they remain to this day. Therefore this word ‘hell’ has been miss-used in English Bibles to describe something that it’s plainly not and the Hebrew word for ‘hell’, that is ‘sheol’, should have been incorporated into the English language, so that there was no ambiguity.

Moreover, let’s answer the first question second: What is hell from the Biblical perspective? If we go straight to the Old Testament we get the word ‘hell’ mentioned 31 times, and in every case it is translated from the Hebrew word ‘sheol’and from Strong’s Concordance we get this:

Hell H7585shᵉʼôwl, sheh-ole’; or שְׁאֹל shᵉʼôl; – from H7592; hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates:—grave, hell, pit.

H7592sha’al shaw-al’ or shael {shaw-ale’}; – a primitive root; to inquire; by implication, to request; by extension, to demand:–ask (counsel, on), beg, borrow, lay to charge, consult, demand, desire, X earnestly, enquire, + greet, obtain leave, lend, pray, request, require, + salute, X straitly, X surely, wish.

Now notice what’s going on here, for immediately we have gratuitous erroneous embellishments being added with the Greek word ‘hades’ being utilised and introduced. Hades’ is straight out of Greek mythology, so it doesn’t exist – ‘hades’ is a LIE! So why have silly duped and deluded people included it into their ‘Christian’ belief systems, and why has Mr Strong dropped this huge clanger? He says that H7592 refers to: “hades or a world of the dead – a subterranean retreat,” when it says no such thing – see definition H7592 above.

I will therefore return to one of my other introduction questions, question No. 14: Can we rely on the ‘experts’ for their interpretations of this word, even Mr Strong in his Concordance? So in this first instance can we rely upon Mr Strong with his inclusion of the Greek mythological word ‘hades’ into his definition? NO! is the resounding answer to that.

Getting back to The Truth and reality, the first verse of the Holy Scriptures that uses the word ‘hell’ is Deuteronomy 32:22 and I will copy it here:

Deuteronomy 32:22 (KJV) For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell (H7585), and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

In this first usage of the word ‘hell’ it can only mean ‘pit’, as in a lowest point on the earth, when The Lord’s anger will be displayed with fire and shall burn even unto this low point on the earth. This is not a designated place and/or the realm of a permanent fiery place, as we are led to believe from the pages of the New Testament by blind guides, because in this case the whole earth is consumed by this fire.

Let’s now look at an associated word, ‘grave’, in order to get a better understanding of this word ‘hell’, and that word is used for the first time in Genesis 37:

Genesis 37:35 (KJV) And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave (H7585) unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him. (Brackets and emphasis mine)

Now pay special attention, for we have the same Hebrew word in play here, that is, ‘sheol’, for the word grave’. So does this prove that ‘hell’ and the ‘grave’ are one and the same thing? You betcha.

OK, so we have now ascertained some interesting points: 1) There is no fiery hell mentioned in the Old Testament. 2) Hell sheol’ in the Old Testament means only one thing – the GRAVE sheol’ or a hole in the ground where dead people are buried, so where is this fiery hell and did it not apply to Old Testament people? Were they not evil sinners when they died? Was there any chance of redemption/salvation for them? NO! So what’s going on?

Moreover, if we take this subject a step further we need to discuss the reality of death’, if only that it makes sense to do so. I say this because people in general have some very whacky ideas, not only about ‘hell’, but also about ‘death’. So let’s clarify this subject before we move on with our discussion about ‘hell’.

So what is death? Death is the cessation of life, kaput, fini, end of. The wages of sin! Life ceases totally and this is made very clear in the Holy Scriptures:

Ecclesiastes 9:5 (KJV) For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Psalm 115:17 (KJV) The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.

Psalm 6:5 (KJV) For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

There we have it, the dead know not anything, they go down into the ground in silence, a state of oblivion, or if you prefer, just as we were before we were born – nothingness – no breath of life – no existence – no conscious awareness of anything – NOTHING! If you’re hung up and deceived by the papist immortal soul nonsense, then see the first crucial link below.

Where were we? Ah yes, ‘hell’ and the Old Testament and what it proves for us, namely, that there is no fiery hell mentioned. Does this create a problem? Well it certainly looks like it, if we believe what we’re told by blind guides. The New Testament beckons.

In the New Testament the word ‘hell’ is mentioned 23 times and interestingly the Biblical number 23 means death, so that’s very appropriate, is it not? Just a little aside. In the New Testament the first verse in which we find the word ‘hell’ is in Matthew 5:22, but before we go there we need first to list all the hells of the NT, and their definitions – answer to question No. 9:

Hell – G1067geena gheh’-en-nahof Hebrew origin (1516 and 2011); valley of (the son of) Hinnom; ge-henna (or Ge-Hinnom), a valley of Jerusalem, used (figuratively) as a name for the place (or state) of everlasting punishment:–hell.

H1516gay’ gah’-ee or (shortened) gay {gah’-ee}; – probably (by transmutation) from the same root as 1466 (abbreviated); a gorge (from its lofty sides; hence, narrow, but not a gully or winter-torrent):–valley.

H2011Hinnom hin-nome’ probably of foreign origin; Hinnom, apparently a Jebusite – a Canaanite:–Hinnom.

Hell – G86haides hah’-dace – from 1 (as negative particle) and 1492; properly, unseen, i.e. “Hades” or the place (state) of departed souls:–grave, hell.

Hell – G5020tartaroo tar-tar-o’-o – from Tartaros (the deepest abyss of Hades); to incarcerate in eternal torment:–cast down to hell.

Now I find this conundrum very interesting, because after 3 BC with the arrival of Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) on this earth, we now have three definitions for the word ‘hell’, not just one, as in the Old Testament. So what’s changed and what’s going on – has dying been remodelled or reformed? ROTFL! In the blink of an eye, are their now more places or destinations for dead people to go?

The spirit of this conundrum seems to have strong similarities to the mythical changed nature of God from being a Duality Godhead, that is, God with God (The Elohim) from before beginning, into a mythical triune godhead deity that doesn’t exist. Do I hear first and second century Hellenising religious gobbledegook alarm bells ringing here? Yes of course I do, for there can be no other explanation for the introduction of this mythical garbage into The Holy Scriptures. I speak here of the mythical non-existent ‘hades’.

However, on a more serious note, we do have Yashua Messiah introducing some severe warnings to rebellious wicked people, in general, and this includes those that will be cast into ‘outer darkness’. So not only do we have three types of ‘hell’ in play in the NT, but also this place called ‘outer darkness’. Which again is not mentioned in the Old Testament.

Outer – G1857exoteros ex-o’-ter-os – comparative of 1854; exterior:–outer.

Darkness – G4655skotos skot’-os – from the base of 4639; shadiness, i.e. obscurity (literally or figuratively):–darkness.

Notice, that we have a place where certain people will end up and they will be alive, or will be conscious, but they will be kept in the background, in the shade so to speak, or in obscurity, so initially will have no part in The Kingdom of God – whether this is a permanent arrangement or not I don’t know. It could be a place where they have to learn some hard lessons. Some interpret this as being totally cut off from Yashua Messiah, when all the while in this life, they professed to be His followers, that is, these people here:

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into The Kingdom of God; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 MANY will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Moreover, this makes plain that there is an after death place of punishment, not involving fire, where these punishments will be meted out. When I say after death, I mean post the first resurrection, for we all die the first death and we’re all placed in HELL, that is, ‘sheol’ or the grave. This is with one exception, for those alive at Yashua Messiah’s return will die and, in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, be immediately resurrected to life, and this is answer to question No. 7:

Luke 12:45-49 (KJV) But and if that servant say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his Lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to His will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

First of all, take special note of these verses, for we are not dealing primarily with the lost and unsaved but, rather, so-called Christians. These are believers, that is, alleged servants of Yashua Messiah who start thinking that Yashua Messiah is not coming, so they start beating up on their fellow men and women, in their employ, and over indulging in food and booze, on a regular basis. These ‘believers’ Yashua Messiah cuts off from entering into The Kingdom and demotes them to the status of the lost and unsaved and gives what they would have inherited to the lost and unsaved. However, this is not the end of them, for they will still be in the resurrection and be beaten with many stripes, whilst the lost and unsaved will be beaten with few stripes, because they knew no better.

Secondly, notice how the fire will be sent on the earth in general, not people being deposited into a fiery pit of hell. This fits in with The Lord’s words in Deuteronomy, which I quoted in the beginning and will fulfil His prophesy.

However, in spite of all this, ALL of MANkind will be resurrected, albeit not at the same time, but at two different times in the future – either in the First Resurrection, when Yashua Messiah returns, or in the Second Resurrection at the end of The Millennium, a thousand years later. See the second link below for the details.

1 Timothy 2:4 (MCV) Who will have (desires) all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of The Truth.

Returning to where I was above, another interesting point is that this term ‘outer darkness’ can only be found three times in the NT and all three are in Matthew’s Gospel. Does this mean that Matthew only was privy to this Truth, or is it written differently in the other Gospels? At this stage I don’t know, but I will by the time I have finished this study!

I will copy all three passages here:

Matthew 8:11-12 (MCV) And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in The Kingdom of God. 12 But the children of The Kingdom shall be cast out into OUTER DARKNESS: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Now the above passage of Scripture throws up an interesting turn of phrase, namely ‘The Children of The Kingdom’. Who were these Children of The Kingdom (‘Sons of the Kingdom’ would be a better translation)? Well in Truth they were not really sons at all, for this is yet another dig by Yashua Messiah at the Pharisee Jews, who THOUGHT they were the sons of The Kingdom, when they were no such thing. However, He plays up to their delusional thinking and let’s them know, fair and square, what their destination will be, as opposed to the salvation granted to the faithful non-Jew Roman centurion – see Matthew 8:5-10.

Matthew 22:11-13 (KJV) And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 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.

In the above passage we have a reference to the saints dressed in the white robes of Revelation:

Revelation 6:11 (KJV) And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

So the fella in this parable was obviously not dressed in metaphorical white robes, that is, he was not called and chosen by The Father, and he was not Baptised (full immersion) into Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name alone, and not gifted with The Holy Spirit. So clearly he was not born of God, and yet obviously thought he was a Christian as many in the counterfeit Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion do.

Let this be a warning to all you fakes out there who erroneously think you can accept a ‘Jesus’ as your saviour and not acknowledge your Fatherly call. Repent NOW whilst you still have the time. See link No. 4 below.

Matthew 25:26-30 (KJV) His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into OUTER DARKNESS: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

In the above passage we have a faithless Christian who couldn’t even be bothered to put his talents in a bank to gain some interest, so his punishment is outer darkness. Moreover, notice how this outer darkness place is not called hell, nor is there any mention of fire within it, and yet it is definitely a very unpleasant place of punishment, because those destined to go there weep and gnash their teeth in mental torment and agony. In other places it says, wailing and the gnashing of teeth – a pretty sorry state for these hapless people, to say the least. So let’s take a look at all the other places, seven in all, where this weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth occurs.

Likewise I will copy all seven passages here:

Matthew 13:40-42 (KJV) As therefore The Tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. See the third link below.

A crucial point to register here is that those burned with fire here, that is, The Jews, will be burned at the point of Yashua Messiah’s return at the end of this world, so we’re definitely not dealing with a permanent hell fire location or even a place of torment as offered to us by certain religious snake-oil salesmen. Here, the fire at the time Yashua Messiah’s return is called a ‘furnace’ of fire. Likewise in this passage:

Matthew 13:4750 (KJV) Again, The Kingdom of Heaven (God) is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of EVERY KIND: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Once more: “Again, The Kingdom of Heaven (God) is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of EVERY KIND:” “EVERY KIND” here is a direct reference to all the ethnic groups of hu-man kind and mankind across the world. Look what happens next: “Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good (mankind) into vessels, but cast the bad (inbred Canaanite hu-man kind) away.” These words are nothing to do with sinners or sinning in general, that is, bad people as opposed to good people, that is, sinners and non-sinners, for no one is good and all have fallen short so there are no non-sinners, apart from the saints. Not only that, but Yashua Messiah has dealt with ALL sin and it’s just a matter of calling the slumbering masses in the Second Resurrection, in order for them to be saved after they have been evaluated at the Great White Throne Tribunal.

These words, and their intended meaning, that is, the differing sea creatures, are just the same as those in the Parable of The Wheat and Tares, and we’re dealing with a separation of The Wheat from The Tares, and we know who (((The Tares))) are don’t we? Yes, the Serpent Seed Canaanites. Again see link No. 3 below for all the details.

Matthew 24:48-51 (KJV) But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

This one I have covered above in Luke 12.

Luke 13:25-28 (KJV) When once The Master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and He shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27 But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all The Prophets, in The Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Furthermore, what is the common denominator in all of these passages of Holy Scripture, apart from all the weeping, wailing and the gnashing of teeth? The secret is in the words of these verses and who they were/are aimed at: “when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all The Prophets, in The Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.” Namely, The Pharisee Jews, who were the leaders of all the Jews and spoke for all the Jews. Today’s rabbis are direct descendants of those Pharisees. This means that this whole topic of ‘hell’ in the NT has taken on a distinctly Serpent Seed racial or ethnic flavour – hence the necessity of a fiery hell or fiery punishment instead of just the Old Testament ‘Sheol’ – the grave.

I think I will call that the end of Part 1.

HELL – Part 2

Before we move on with the ‘hell’ word, we also need to suss out the ‘fire’ and ‘fiery’ words, for not all is what it seems with these words ‘fire’ and ‘fiery’, and there are even more definitions of the word ‘fire’ and ‘fiery’ than the word ‘hell’. Would you believe it!? I will list these as they appear in the New Testament, starting in Matthew:

Fire – G4442pur poor – a primary word; “fire” (literally or figuratively, specially, lightning):–fiery, fire.

Fire – G5457phos foce – from an obsolete phao (to shine or make manifest, especially by rays; compare 5316, 5346); luminousness (in the widest application, natural or artificial, abstract or concrete, literal or figurative):–fire, light.

Fire (of coals) – G439anthrakia anth-rak-ee-ah’ – from 440; a bed of burning coals:–fire of coals.

Fire – G4443pura poo-rah’ from 4442; a fire (concretely):–fire.

Fire – G5394phlogizo flog-id’-zo – from 5395; to cause a blaze, i.e. ignite (figuratively, to inflame with passion):–set on fire.

Fire or Fiery – G4448puroo poo-ro’-o – from 4442; to kindle, i.e. (passively) to be ignited, glow (literally), be refined (by implication), or (figuratively) to be inflamed (with anger, grief, lust):–burn, fiery, be on fire, try.

Fire – G4447purinos poo’-ree-nos – from 4443; fiery, i.e. (by implication) flaming:–of fire.

Fiery – G4451purosis poo’-ro-sis – from 4448; ignition, i.e. (specially), smelting (figuratively, conflagration, calamity as a test):–burning, trial.

So there they are, all 8 definitions of the words ‘fire’ and ‘fiery’ being used in the New Testament, and all these definitions are found amongst the 83 uses of the word ‘fire’ in 79 verses. 32 times in the Four Gospels; 6 times in Acts; 9 times in Paul’s Epistles; 10 times in the General Epistles and 26 times in Revelation. Plus 3 uses of the word ‘fiery’ found in 3 verses.

Right, let’s have a closer look at these definitions and see what we can find. The first thing that sticks out is the number of times the first definition is used, that is, G4442 and it’s used 73 times out of the 83. But lets look at the lesser used definitions first, for that will reveal much for us when we come the more common G4442 definition. OK, first Scripture using G5457:

Mark 14:54 (KJV) And Peter followed Him afar off, even into the palace of the High Priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire. (G5457)

In this verse we definitely have reference to an ordinary fire, that is, the sort we would have in our houses, if we had open fire places, or the sort of fire we would light at the bottom of our gardens for burning leaves and/or garden waste = a fire!

Luke 22:56 (KJV) But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, (G5457) and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

Here we have confirmation of the same definition of an ordinary fire in Luke.

Elsewhere in John it is called a ‘fire of coals’:

John 18:18 (KJV) And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire (G439) of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

But still it’s an ordinary fire as in G5457.

However, as soon as we get to the G4442 definition things change dramatically – here are some examples:

Matthew 3:11 (MCV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire: (G4442)

That is no ordinary fire! Nor is this:

Revelation 10:1 (KJV) And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: (G4442)

So are we dealing with symbolism here and/or things manifesting themselves as ‘fiery’ in order for Yashua Messiah to make a strong impression in our minds. You will have noticed that this G4442 definition also includes ‘lightning’ as part of its description, so it’s definitely not fire in the ordinary sense of fire.

In our next verse it takes on a new form and we also include the word ‘hell’ in with ‘fire’:

Matthew 5:22 (MCV) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca = empty, (without a cause) shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, (without a cause) shall be in danger of hell (G1067 Gehenna)fire (G4442).

I have added the words ‘without a cause’ two more times because Paul called many people fools and I am sure he will not be in danger of Gehenna Fire.

Romans 1:22 (KJV) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

So what is this Gehenna Fire? I will repost from above:

Hell – G1067geena gheh’-en-nah – of Hebrew origin (1516 and 2011); valley of (the son of) Hinnom; ge-henna (or Ge-Hinnom), a valley of Jerusalem, used (figuratively) as a name for the place (or state) of everlasting punishment:- -hell.

H1516gay’ gah’-ee or (shortened) gay {gah’-ee}; – probably (by transmutation) from the same root as 1466 (abbreviated); a gorge (from its lofty sides; hence, narrow, but not a gully or winter-torrent):–valley.

H2011Hinnom hin-nome’ probably of foreign origin; Hinnom, apparently a Jebusite:–Hinnom.

Gehenna Fire has its origins from the Hebrew Old Testament where it is not referred to as hell’ but, rather, the Valley of Hinnom just outside Jerusalem. This is where the wicked Israelites passed their children through the fire as sacrifices to the Canaanite god Moloch or Molech. This wicked satanic practice, along with the more evil satanic idolatry that went with it, was the main reason for Yashua Messiah (God of The Old Testament) bringing the Assyrians and later the Babylonians to carry both Kingdoms off into captivity. The House of Israel from 740-725 BC and The House of Judah circa 585 BC.

Later on this valley became the dump for Jerusalem’s refuse where all the carcases from the sacrifices were deposited and left to either burn and/or rot.

However, we can see how this name is carried over into the New Testament through the Greek word Gehenna = ge-henna (or Ge-Hinnom). ‘Ge’ meaning gorge or valley and Hinnom the name of a Jebusite, that is, a Canaanite. So Gehhena literally means the Gorge of Hinnom the Canaanite where garbage was continuously thrown and burned.

So how many people will be thrown literally into the Gorge of Hinnom? None is the answer to that, for the Gorge of Hinnom (Gehenna) is pure symbolism for unquenchable fire, that is, as long as more combustible stuff is added to it. Cease adding to it and it will go out and so it is with God’s unquenchable fire. It will burn for as long as is needed and once all The Tares and things that offend are consumed it will go out.

Matthew 3:12 (KJV) Whose fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

This verse, once more, is a parallel verse to that of The Wheat and The Tares and is an end time event when Yashua Messiah returns to this earth. John the Baptist is letting The Pharisees know, with no punches pulled, what their end will be in the resurrection and confirmed for us here:

Matthew 13:40 (KJV) As therefore The Tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

However, there is another Gehenna Fire that is everlasting and we see it illustrated here:

Matthew 18:8-9 (KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire (G4442). 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell (G1067 Gehenna) fire (G4442).

So what is this telling us? Well first of all we have this G4442 fire which is no ordinary fire, and that it’s everlasting, that is, it’s perpetual, from the past and into the future, never ending, eternal. So it sounds like this G4442 ‘fire’ has a Spiritual aura about it as well, a supernatural fire for want of a better description.

Is this ‘fire’ one and the same as the Lake of Fire as described in Revelation? I think so, for this message in Matthew 18 is being delivered to those under The Law. No one was born of God and indwelled by The Holy Spirit whilst Yashua Messiah was alive on this earth. Yes a minority of people, including the twelve learners, were being called, but none were saved until after Yashua Messiah’s death and resurrection.

Moreover, Yashua Messiah made the comparison between the days before The Flood and these last days, except these last days will culminate in worldwide fire, not a worldwide flooding of water, but it will be worldwide, and there will be no hiding places for the wicked Jews and their shabbos goy servants – all will perish. The same for the False Prophet (The Pope) and all his sycophant slave followers, their satanic idolatrous religion will not save them.

Matthew 24:37-39 (MCV) But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of The Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days that were before The Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into The Ark, 39 And knew not until The Flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of The Son of Man be.

So shall the coming of The Son of Man be, only this time with WORLDWIDE FIRE! not worldwide water:

2 Peter 3:6-7 (The Amplified Bible) Through which the world at that time was destroyed by being flooded with water. 7 But by His Word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly people.

Revelation 16:8 (KJV) And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire (G4442).

Moreover, the above event is not the Lake of Fire or Gehenna Fire, which I think are one and the same thing, for both are everlasting fire. The Lake of Fire also burns with the aid of brimstone. However, this brimstone seems to be a very special kind of brimstone and different from that which was discovered at the sites of Sodom and Gomorrah (85% pure Sulphur). We will therefore use Strong’s Concordance to assist us:

Old Testament:

H1614 – Brimstone – gophrîyth, gof-reeth’; – Probably feminine of H1613; properly, cypress-resin; by analogy, sulphur (as equally inflammable):—brimstone.

New Testament:

Brimstone – G2303theionthi’-on – probably neuter of 2304 (in its original sense of flashing); sulphur:–brimstone.

G2304theios thi’-os from 2316; Godlike (neuter as noun, divinity): – divine, Godhead.

G2316theostheh’-os – of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with 3588) the supreme Divinity; figuratively, a magistrate; by Hebraism, very:–X exceeding, God, god(-ly, -ward).

Do you now see how the G2303 brimstone is different from the H1614 Old Testament brimstone, for the G2303 brimstone has a very Godly or Divine dimension to it, and it is capable of flashing. Notice how this also fits in with the G4442 fire with its lightning. So we now have a fire that is no ordinary fire and a brimstone that is Godlike or Divine, hence it is able to burn for eternity.

Revelation 20:10 (MCV) And The Devil that deceived them was cast into The Lake of Fire (G4442) and Brimstone (G2303), where The Beast and The False Prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Notice that this brimstone will not kill The Beast (The Rothschilds and their Jewish criminal empire) and The False Prophet (The Popes and their Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion with their deceived and deluded followers), but it will torment them day and night forever. This is how we know that the two brimstones and fires are very different, for the Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone destroyed the cities completely, even the stone walls and buildings, such was the intensity of the heat. However, this Lake of Fire (G4442) and Brimstone does not destroy, but torments forever.

So who gets sent to this Gehenna Lake of Fire for eternal punishment. Well at this moment in time all we know for sure are the characters listed above, but no doubt there will be quite few Canaanite Serpent Seed people to keep them company.

So let’s recap what we have ascertained:

1) Hell is definitely the grave, or the Hebrew ‘Sheol’, the punishment for the wages of sin, as of Adam and Eve’s first transgression into which we are born – the fallen sinful condition and for which the penalty is a cessation of life. This is a crucial point that many-so called Christians forget, when they are busy foaming at the mouth over those that they accuse of rejecting Yashua Messiah, that is, the lost and unsaved in this life. We’re all punished by death for that first misdemeanour of our original parents, whether we’re saved or not – there is no escape from the punishment of death – the first death.

2) We ascertained what death is, and what it is not. At the same time we exposed the mythological ‘Hades’ concept and exposed it for the religious bunkum that it is.

3) We learned that: a) there are different types of ‘fire’ alluded to in the New Testament, and: b) that the end time fire, that will come upon the earth, in general, is not the Gehenna Fire of Revelation, that is, the Lake of Fire, which certain individuals will be thrown into.

4) We now know that there is a place, or a concept, or condition known as Outer Darkness, as mentioned in Matthew’s Gospel. However, it is NOT known or referred to as hell, nor as a fiery hell, as no fire is mentioned in relation to this place – if it is a place at all. It may just be a mental condition, an experience, or a state of being, whereby certain people are definitely conscious, and will be experiencing an existence cut off from Yashua Messiah’s presence. All this, when they that are cut off, were/are expecting to spend their eternal lives with Him. What a great shock this will be for these hapless people. Furthermore, is this a permanent arrangement for these wretched people? This point is not made known to us in the Holy Scriptures, apart from The Truth that God does NOT remain angry forever – that much we do know.

5) Along with the ‘fire’ we learned that there are two kinds of brimstone to accompany these two kinds of fire.

Finally, we come to The Second Resurrection and The Last Great Day which follows the end of The Millennium. The Millennium being the 1,000 year reign of Yashua Messiah on this earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. This event is otherwise known as The Great White Throne Judgement Tribunal, when all the rest of the dead will be evaluated. These are those that were not a part of the First Resurrection = the great majority of mankind, and I cover this topic in detail in my article entitled: “Why Are There Two Resurrections?” see link No. 2 below, and with that I’ll call it a cut!

In Yashua Messiah’s Holy name,

Messenger Charles
