Eternity in Hell

Salvation Bible Basics


The last term that God uses to describe those who have no relationship with Him is that they will spend eternity in Hell separated from God. Revelation 21:8 has been called the phone book of Hell, because it lists the people who will be there. ‘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.‘ 

The lake of fire is another name for Hell. Those who live their whole life without a relationship with God are lost. They can’t find their way to God. They are not right when God looks at them. They are unrighteous, and they are not forgiven. They are enemies of God, fighting against Him. God has already condemned them, and in condemning them, His wrath, His anger is poured out. God is angry with them because of their sins. He has a place waiting for them that we call Hell. It is the lake of fire, where even liars go. All you have to do is tell one lie and you are guilty.
