What the Bible Says About Hell

Faith Filled Friday

Hell is not a place I’d want to go, even for a short visit.

It is known by several names. In Hebrew, it is Sheol (pit or grave). The Greeks use Hades (comparable to Sheol) and Gehenna (Valley of Hinnom, a ravine outside the southern wall of Jerusalem).

Hell is:

a place of eternal separation for God, 2 Thessalonians 1:9 and Revelations 20:15

of chains of darkness, 2 Peter 2:4

of continual punishment, Matthew 25:46

of blackest darkness, Jude 13

of everlasting contempt, Daniel 12:2

of torment and agony, Luke 16:23, 24

of weeping and gnashing of teeth, Matthew 8:12, 22:13

of pain and suffering, Revelations 14:10-11

God’s wrath will be unleashed, Revelations 14:10

of unquenchable fire, Mark 9:43

of insatiable thirst, Luke 16:24

of unending sorrow and anger, Matthew 13:42

The best part is that God does not want anyone to go there (1 Timothy 2:4). He loves us and wants us to be with him in heaven (John 3:16). Jesus paid for our sins with his death on the cross (1John 4:10). All we have to do is ask God to forgive us and let Jesus into our hearts (2 Peter 3:9).
