The Substitutionary Spiritual Death of our Lord.  

 

 

JOH 3:14 "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;

 

JOH 3:15 that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life.

 

 

JOH 3:16  "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

 

JOH 3:17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.

 

JOH 3:18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

 

 

 

The Doctrine of Purgatory, established by Pope Gregory I in the year 593 and then as a dogma by the Council of Florence in 1439, a dogma is a dogmatic doctrine that must be believed in or you were sinning against God.

 

  1. As a part of the divine descriptions of Hell there is what is known as Hell being a place of fire and brimstone, REV 19:20.

 

REV 19:20   And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.

 

Brimstone is the biblical word for sulfur which not only keeps the fire going but has a disgusting smell.

 

  1. Hell is a place of burning wind constantly, PSA 11:6.

 

  1. Another divine description of hell is that it is a place outer darkness where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

MAT 25:30 "And cast out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

  1. In Mat 25:46 Jesus says, "And they will go away into Eternal Punishment."

 

  1. In Mar 9:43-48, it is called a place of UNQUENCHABLE FIRE, and a place where the MAGGOTS NEVER DIE and the FIRE NEVER GOES OUT."
  2. Luk 6:24-26, a place of SORROWS and a time of AWFUL HUNGER which awaits you.

 

Heaven is a place where you can’t remember your family, and your friends and your loved ones… hell is a place where you can, and you’re going to…

 

PRO 1:22 "How long, O naive ones, will you love simplicity? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing, And fools hate knowledge? notice they will hate knowledge

 

PRO 1:23 "Turn to my reproof, Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

 

PRO 1:24 "Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention;

 

PRO 1:25 And you neglected all my counsel, And did not want my reproof; Negative volition toward doctrine.

 

PRO 1:26 I will even laugh at your calamity;  I will mock when your dread comes,

 

PRO 1:27 When your dread comes like a storm, And your calamity comes on like a whirlwind, When distress {and} anguish come on you.

 

PRO 1:28 "Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they shall not find me,

 

 

PRO 1:29 Because they hated knowledge, And did not choose the fear of the Lord.

 

PRO 1:30 "They would not accept my counsel, They spurned all my reproof.

 

PRO 1:31 "So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way, And be satiated with their own devices.

 

PRO 1:32 "For the waywardness of the naive shall kill them, And the complacency of fools shall destroy them.

 

PRO 1:33 "But he who listens to me shall live securely, And shall be at ease from the dread of evil."

 

PRO 24:17   Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;

 

PRO 24:18 Lest the Lord see {it} and be displeased, And He turn away His anger from him.

 

An anthropopathism ascribes a human characteristic to God; a characteristic, which God does not actually possess and one, which is not actually a divine attribute.

 

The purpose of an anthropopathism is to explain a divine reason or policy to man so that man can understand what the policy of God is and what He thinks about the situation.

 

  1. In Luke 16:19-31. Hell is said to be a place of TORMENT, and a place where literal thirst is never quenched.

 

LUK 16:24 "And he cried out and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue; for I am in agony in this flame.'

 

  1. In Mat 13:41-43, hell is a place where the Fiery Furnace is and again our Lord says there will be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.

 

In Mat 13:49-50 Jesus says, "That is the way it will be at the End of the World. The Angels will come and separate the Wicked people from the Righteous, throwing the Wicked into the FIERY FURNACE, where there will be  WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH."

 

Just as there will be different Rewards in Heaven for Believers, there will be different Degrees of Punishment for Unbelievers based on what they KNEW and on their DEEDS.

 

LUK 12:47 "And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, shall receive many lashes,

 

 

LUK 12:48 but the one who did not know {it,} and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. And from everyone who has been given much shall much be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.

 

  1. Another divine description of hell is a place of blackness and darkness as in 2PE 2:17 These are springs without water, and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved.

 

JUD 1:13 wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.

Job 31:12 It is a devastating fire that destroys to Hell. It would wipe out everything I own.

PSA 41:6 He rains down blazing coals on the wicked, punishing them with burning sulfur and scorching winds.

 

  1. Hell is also a place where there is no escape PSA 140:10"Let burning coals fall down on their heads, or throw them into the fire, or into deep Pits from which they can't  escape."
  2. One of the most hurtful things in the soul is found in Mar 9:44"Where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched."

This is unlike Heaven where we will not be able to remember our family, friends and loved ones, Rev 7:17; 21:4.

Rev 7:17  for the Lamb in the center of the throne shall be their shepherd, and shall guide them to springs of the water of life; and God shall wipe every tear from their eyes."

REV 21:4  and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."

 

  1. Hell is also called a place of destruction in PSA 55:23"But You, O God, shall bring them down to the Pit of destruction; Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; But I will trust in You."
  2. Hell is also identified as a bottomless pit in Rev 9:1-2.

 

  1. Fire and brimstone, REV 19:20.

 

  1. Burning wind constantly, PSA 11:6.

 

  1. Outer darkness & weeping & gnashing of teeth, MAT 25:30

 

 

  1. Eternal Punishment, MAT 25:46.

  1. Torment, & unquenchable thirst, LUK 16:19-31.

  1. Blackness and darkness, 2PE 2:17

  2. The soul never dies & unquenchable fire, MAR 9:44.

 

  1. Destruction, PSA 55:23
  2. Bottomless pit, REV 9:1-2.

 

 

  1. Tormented
  2. Smoke of their torment
  3. No rest day and night

 

A place described as a place of torment, LUK 16:28.

 

LUK 16:27 "And he said, 'Then I beg you, Father, that you send him to my father's house‑‑

LUK 16:28  For I have five brothers‑‑ that he may warn them, lest they also come to this place of torment.

 

A place where desire is never met, Luk 16:24.

Luk 16:24 "And he cried out and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue; for I am in agony in this flame.'

A place of unspeakable misery indicated by the term, everlasting fire, Mat 25:41.

A place called outer darkness, Mat 8:12

Blackness of darkness, Jud 13

It is said about those suffering in Rev 14:11, that "the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever and they have no rest day or night"

 

2Co 6:2  "Now is the time of acceptance; now is the day of salvation."

 

Hell is said to be banishment from the presence of God, 2Th 1:4.

 

Hell had to be enlarged by God to make room for man, ISA 5:14.

 

Hell is a also place where others can be recognized, Luk 16:23.

 

Luk 16:23 "And in Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and *saw Abraham far away, and Lazarus in his bosom.

 

Hell is a place where people will pray but will not be heard, Luk 16:27.

Luk 16:27 "And he said, 'Then I beg you, Father, that you send him to my father's house

LUK 16:28  for I have five brothers‑‑ that he may warn them, lest they also come to this place of torment.

 

LUK 16:29 "But Abraham *said, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.'

LUK 16:30 "But he said, 'No, Father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!

 

LUK 16:31 "But he said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.'"

 

Hell is said to last forever and ever, Rev 14:11.

 

Hell is a place where the victims are eternally dying yet they are not in a state of death but a process of constantly dying, Rev 2:11;20:14.

 

Joh 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

JOH 3:17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.

 

World is the kosmos = the organized world of human beings, those with OSN and spiritually dead.

God loves those who are incapable of loving Him.

 

We are all born without the equipment to love God i.e., spiritually dead. that’s what we started off with in this study…

 

Spiritual death means more than being separated from God, it means we do not even have the ability to love God.

 

 

When Joh 3:16 says “For God so love the world that” When God loves, His love always produces a result...an action.

When a person has a M.A. the M.A. always produces a result, an action.

HEB 12:15  See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;

 

 

Bitterness can come from the intensity of suffering of mind and body or from something that is difficult to bear, something that causes animosity and reaction.

 

Ridicule and judging is a manifestation of bitterness, Lam 3:14.

Jam 3:14 "But if you have bitter jealousy  and strife in your right lobe, do not be arrogant and do not lie against the truth."

 

When you are bitter, you actually tell yourself lies that are totally against the reality of doctrine  and that's what it means when it says--lying against the truth.

 

Bitterness causes stress and complaining which is why Job said in 7:11 "Therefore, I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the stress of my mind, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul."

 

 

1JO 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. manifestation of what hells going to be all about.

 

1JO 3:15  Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

1Jo 5:16  If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death;  I do not say that he should make request for this.

 

KJV - 1Jo 5:16  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him  life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
