Doctrine of Enemyship.
Point 6. Both Categories of the Enemies of God, Satan and the Fallen Angels and Unbelievers, will be Judged and Sentenced to the Eternal Lake of Fire.
The unbel is like the fallen angel, in that all fallen angels made a decision in E/P that cannot be reversed and they will be consigned to the eternal lake of fire, MAT 25:41.
MAT 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Satan and the wicked angels will be cast into Sheol or hell, which we call the eternal lake of fire, and remain fully conscious there; ISA 14:9-17.
ISA 14:16 iysh – a champion, a mighty one, a great one.
“Did one third of the angels fall or did they all fall and two-thirds came back to Christ?”
1TI 5:21 “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.”
God made the angels perfect, without sin, acceptable to His absolute righteousness.
God gave the angels free will so that they might understand His character and worship Him; ISA 14:12.
God sentenced heylel or Lucifer and all the fallen angels to “eternal fire” MAT 25:41.
MAT 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;”
Because the sentence was not immediately executed and will not be carried out until the end of human history,REV 20:10, we infer that Satan appealed the sentence.
How can a loving God cast His creatures into hell or an eternal lake of fire?
Turn to REV 7:10
Turn to REV 5:2-5
When Satan appealed his sentence, God convened an appeal trial which is coterminous with human history.
God anticipated mans fall and in His matchless grace designed a plan of salvation for all mankind through faith in Jesus Christ.
God created fabulous assets, privileges, and opportunities for every believer so that he might enjoy fellowship with God.
No one goes to the eternal lake of fire or hell, if you will, but by their own negative volition, JOH 3:18,36.
Turn to COL 1:15
Turn to Phi 2
