In the Hebrew of the Old Testament there was Sheol...representing the grave or the abode of the dead. In the Greek of the New Testament this becomes Hades and carries the same meaning as Sheol. Moving on to the time of King James we see the word Hell come into being. Hell is an Old English word that meant...to hide away, as to cover with dirt. It was used in ways such as...Hell the potatos. Today we...Hill them. But Hell was intended to express the same idea as the grave or abode of the dead that sheol and hades had carried. The doctrine of eternal punishment did not become an accepted teaching until well into the 2nd and almost 3rd century after Jesus.
As Hell is thought to be today...it would exist as an eternal monument to the victories of Satan. I find it odd that anyone could imagine God allowing such a thing.
But...I will let the scriptures speak for themselves concerning the "freewill" that gains us Heaven or Hell and who is to be saved. Everyone is free to edit these as they see fit or to just remove them from their Bibles if they cause disturbance.
Jer 10:23 I know that the way of man is not in himself: It is not
in Man that walketh ... to direct his steps.
Rom 9:16 It is not of him that willeth or of him that runneth, but
of God that showeth mercy.
John 6:44 No man can come unto me except the Father which hath sent me
Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap (center) but... the whole
disposing (every decision) thereof ... is of the Lord
Proverbs 16:9 A Mans heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth
Just as it was God who sent Moses to free the people ... It was also
God...who hardened Pharoahs heart...to deny Moses.
Exodus 9:12 10:1 10:20 10:27 11:10 14:8
1 Chr 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to
Now...The same story in... 2 Sam 24:1 And again, the anger of the
L O R D was kindled against Israel, and He moved David against them
to say, Go, number Israel and Judah
Yes... Pharoahs heart was hardened...but who was behind it?
Yes... David was provoked by satan...but who was behind it?
Yes... Job was tormented by satan....but who was behind it?
Romans 9:11-24 (for the children not yet being born, nor having
done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election
might stand, not of works but of H I M who calls),
12: it was said to her, " The older shall serve the younger."
13: As it is written, " Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."
Now look at this...thus far Before they were even born...Before
either of them had done any good or evil...God had already declared
that He loved Jacob and hated Esau. That the P U R P O S E of
GOD might stand According to...election N O T of W O R K S
.... but of H I M who C A L L S Glory to God
Does God love Jacob and hate Esau...because of any of the Freewill
CHOICES they have made?
14: What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God?
Certainly not !
15: For He says to Moses, " I will have mercy on whomever I will have
mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion."
16: So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of
God who shows mercy
17: For the scripture says to the Pharoah, "For this very purpose I
have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name
may be declared in all the earth."
18: Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He
19: You will say to me then, " Why does He still find fault ?
For who has resisted His will ?"
20: But indeed O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the
thing formed say to him who formed it, "Why have you made me like
21: Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump
to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
22: What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His POWER known,
endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for
23: and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels
of His mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory,
24: even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the
There are vessels....prepared for honor and glory
And there are vessels...prepared for dishonor, wrath, and destruction.
It is ALL....GOD
There is N O Power ... but of G O D
Col 1:16 For by Him A L L things were created that are in heaven
and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or
dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through
Him and for Him.
There is NO power... but of God
Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it ?
I form the Light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil:
I the Lord do all these things
The Lord hath made A L L things for Himself: YEA, even the wicked
for the Day of Evil.

knowledge of truth
John 12:32 And I , if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw
ALL men unto me
How many will be drawn?
Romans 14:11 For it is written, "As I live, saith the Lord, EVERY
knee shall bow to me, and EVERY tongue shall confess to God"
Phil 2:10 EVERY knee , EVERY tongue Again
2 Peter 3:9 ...Not willing that ANY should perish , but that
ALL should come to repentance
How many is He willing to let perish?
1 Tim 4:10 ...who is the saviour of ALL men, specially of those
How many ? Specially...but not limited to...those that believe.
He is...specially the saviour of those that believe...because...they
are aware of it...and have the peace and joy of knowing.
Lam 3: 31-32 For the Lord will not cast off forever But though
He grief, yet will He have compassion according to the multitude of
Eph 1:10 That in the fullness of Times He might gather together
in ONE ALL things in Christ, both which are in Heaven, and which are
in earth, even in Him.
Have we reached the...fullness of Times? Dont sell God short
Do you think you can number Israel?
1 Chronicles 21: 1-3 And Satan stood up against Israel and provoked
David to...number Israel
2... and bring the number of them to me, that I may KNOW it
3... Joab answered " THE LORD MAKES HIS PEOPLE AN HUNDRED TIMES SO
MANY MORE AS THEY BE"
2 Sam 14:14 ... God does not take away a life; but He devises means
so that His banished ones are not expelled from Him.
Rom 11:26 And so ALL Israel shall be saved ...
Col 1:20 ...to reconcile ALL things unto Himself; by Him, I say,
whether they be things in earth or things in Heaven
Romans 5:18 Therefore, as by the offense of One ...judgment came
upon ALL men to condemnation; Even so by the righteousness of One...
The Free Gift came upon ALL men unto justification of Life.
Is it a ...Free Gift? or must it be earned? Why does the first
ALL written above mean...EVERYONE But the second ALL...is Limited?
1 Cor 15:22 For as in Adam... ALL die , Even so...in Christ shall ALL
be made Alive
Once again...who has deceived you? Why does the 1st ALL mean...
EVERYONE But the 2nd ALL is....limited ?
Did you....CHOOSE to be born under condemnation? Did you CHOOSE to
be born under Adam? What makes you think you CHOOSE to be in
Christ? No one can come to the Son except the Father draw them
Just as He drew you...He will draw others. God does the work.
Are you saved by....GRACE which is...un merited favor Nothing
you can...earn Nothing you can...deserve Just the Mercy and
Grace of the Father or Are you saved by...A CHOICE you have
made? Was it...YOU who made the choice? Or Was it the Father
who led you to a point in your Life...that led you to the Knowledge
Oh!!! But what about those who are in Satan?
Do you not know....There is NO power...but of GOD?
Satan has no power of his own. He is but a tool of God...that will
cease to exist when his purpose is fulfilled.
If there is ANY other power...Then GOD is not sovereign.
Is God sovereign?
Could Satan torment Job...without Gods permission? Was Satan limited
in the extent of his torment?
Just as it was the Lord who sent Moses to free the people...It was also
the Lord who hardened Pharoahs heart...to deny Moses.
There is NO power...but of...GOD.
1 Cor 5:5 To deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the
Flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Yes, Satan destroys. Yes, Satan torments. And in doing so...MANY
are led to Christ.
The Father has a destination for each of us. It is His WILL that we
reach this destination. Like Jonah , who God wanted to go to Nineveh
We can either...Go willingly...in accordance with Gods WILL...
Or...We can enter the belly of a big fish...and suffer...until...OUR
will is changed...and then ...go to Nineveh.
1 Cor 3:13-15 Every mans work shall be made manifest; for the day
shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by FIRE ; and the Fire
shall try every mans work of what sort it is
14... If any mans work abide which he hath built there upon, he shall
receive a reward
15... If any mans work shall be burned , he shall suffer loss , but
he himself shall be saved ; yet so as by Fire
This is the...CLEANSING Fire of God
Mal 3:3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver
How does a silver refiner purify the silver? He holds it in the
flames...burning away all impurities...until...He can see his own
image in the work. Glory to God
MANY...read in the scriptures...That it is Gods
W I L L
that NONE should perish
W I L L
and MANY say," Its a shame that it wont be that way "
They say it with ... their words They say it with...their doubts
Where is their Faith?
You have seen many scriptures that speak of Gods plan for ALL
In the beginning...God said...LET US MAKE MAN...IN OUR IMAGE
Is 46:10 Declaring the end...from the beginning...My council
shall stand , and I will do all my pleasure.
1 Cor 3:15 If any mans work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss,
But he himself shall be saved; yet so as by Fire
1 Cor 5:5 Deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the
Flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord Jesus.
Some call HELL The Lake of Fire Is it?
Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This
is the second death.
Notice that death and hell are together. Death and the abode of the
Dead...are often linked in scripture. But.... Is HELL....being
thrown into HELL ? Therefore the lake of fire is not the same as Hell
Look at Rev 20:13 ... death and hell delivered up the dead which
were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
So... They are ALREADY in HELL? And have not yet been judged?
Then... They are taken OUT of HELL... to be judged...To see if they
should be cast into HELL? HUH??? How does that work? Does it make
sense to you?
Dont let the Mother of Harlots or her prostitute daughters deceive you. Dont be caught up in
the CONFUSION which is BABYLON Babylon means...confusion
The Lord says ... Come OUT from her.
Search the Spirit of Truth that the Father has placed within you.
Know the PEACE of the FATHER who...IS.... LOVE
Agape... UNCONDITIONAL LOVE Stop putting...conditions on it.
Enter into HIS rest Be STILL and K N O W that HE is
G O D
Is God...Love? 1 John 4:8
Is it righteous to to try and bring others to Christ...through
FEAR tactics? 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in Love; but perfect
love casteth out fear: because F E A R hath T O R M E N T .
He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.
Here we have...FEAR and TORMENT linked together. Is it...of GOD...
or...of LOVE...to instill these things upon our brethren?
Are these the qualities of GODs nature that we are to show others?
1 Cor 13: 7,8 LOVE... "beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things Love never fails"
If LOVE never fails....and GOD I S Love .... Shall He fail?
1 Peter 1:20 says that Jesus was " foreordained before the foundation
of the world"
The Father, before He began creation ...looked ahead...and made
provision for His children. HE planned it...from the beginning.
Did HE plan...The ETERNAL TORMENT of billions?
For one of US to plan such a thing...would be considered sadistic
and abominable. Do we DARE assign such traits upon GOD ?
Does Satan have a never ending shrine to his victory?
Did Christ defeat the Devil?
HELL...as it is believed to be...and ETERNAL TORMENT...would be an
everlasting monument to Satan and his under minding of Gods Will.
An ETERNAL shrine to the influence and power of Satan. Will such a
Let the Spirit of TRUTH and LOVE guide you through the maze of
CONFUSION that is MANs TRADITION.
" Beware lest any man spoil you through PHILOSOPHY and VAIN DECEIT

of the World, and not after Christ" Col 2:8
