 Eternal life















The Bible is very descriptive of the intense pain of Hell, and torment (Luke 16:23-28; experienced by the ungodly after death. Hell is not a mere psychological or emotional distress, some would suggest, but actual physical agony.


What will hell  be like?
      First of all, it will be total separation from God (Mat. 25:41; 2 Thes. 1:9) It will be a place of misery and pain,
where only the wicked will reside.
19 And it will be eternal. There will be no escape, "No Exit."
      Throughout the Old and New Testaments, hell was described as a place of fire and burning.
This "bottomless pit" is a "great furnace" in "outer darkness" (Mat. 8:12; 22:13), covered with a "mist of blackness (or, darkness)" (2 Pet. 2:17; Jude 13). "There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Mat. 18:41, 42; Luke 13:28)





Scripture teaches that the spirits of men are fully conscious after separation
from the body at death.

a. They can speak.

Isaiah 14:9-11; Ezekiel 32:21



b. They can cry.

Matthew 8:11, 12; Matthew 13:42, 50; Matthew 22:13

Luke 16:24-31; 13:28; Revelation 6:9-11

c. They can hear.

John 5:25; 1 Peter 3:18-20; 4:6

d. They can see.

Luke 16:23; John 8:51-54, 56

e. They can feel pain.

Luke 16:23, 24
Revelation 20:10 ("torment" basanizo, meaning "to vex with
great pain" – as Matthew 8:29)

f. They have memory.

Luke 16:28


B. Death does not mean extinction. The words "perish," "destroy,"
and "lost" in the King James Version are all used for the same
Greek word apollumi, meaning "that which is no longer useful."
