Where is Hell?

by Eugene (Cliff) Hinds

 

2 Peter 2:4

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and
delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

Here, we have this Satan and his fallen angels, cast into hell in chains of darkness to be reserved
unto judgement.

Jude 1:6

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath
reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Here, we have these fallen angels, again being reserved in everlasting chains of darkness until the judgement day.

Question: Where is Satan and his fallen angels in hell?

I thought he was in the garden of Eden tempting mankind. I thought he was on the earth putting
his thoughts inside the minds of mankind and sometimes putting himself inside of mankind.

I guess he just jumps inside of your mind to posses you and makes you do things that are unholy.

Maybe he is allowed to go back and forth from hell when ever he wants to?

Just like we have mankind going back and forth from hell and the earth.

Jonah 2:2

And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of
the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

Here, we have Jonah in hell, I wonder if he saw Satan down there?

Proverbs 15:24

The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

Here, we have people departing from hell. Is that what Jonah did?

Psalms 86:13

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the
lowest hell.

Here, we have David being delivered from hell. I wonder if he saw Satan down there in hell?

Psalms 40:2

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet
upon a rock, and established my goings.

It is a good thing David was brought out of the horrible pit.

I wonder where hell is? Maybe, it is in the lower parts of the earth.

Ephesians 4:9

Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

Hell must be deep inside of the earth, way down there.

Psalms 63:9

But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

Hell is deep in the earth.

Psalms 86:13

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the
lowest hell.

Hell is deep in the earth, to get into hell you would have to get a shovel and dig very deep until
one day you would be in hell and you then would see Satan and his fallen angels who are allowed
to go back and forth from hell and the earth to wreak havoc among mankind.

Amos 9:2

Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to
heaven, thence will I bring them down:

Here, we have people digging into hell. We also have people climbing up to heaven. Before you
can climb up into heaven you have to find Jacob's ladder. I bet it is a long climb to climb into
heaven.

There are people who already have dug holes into hell and they are throwing people into these
holes down to hell after they kill you.

Luke 12:5

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath
power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

If you do not follow Christ men will get you and throw you down this hole into hell to be burned.

John 15:6

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men
gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

However, God's people can rescue you from hell by pulling you out of the fire.

Jude 23

And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment
spotted by the flesh.

Maybe, they go to the hole dug into the earth that leads to hell and throw a long chain down
there and pull you up?

Maybe, while you are down there, Satan will destroy your flesh so you can be saved?

1 Corinthians 5:5

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may
be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

I guess all of these people go to hell before they get judged.

Revelation 20:14

And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Hell is going to be cast into a lake of fire. I thought hell was burning already. How could this be
called the second death?

Is Satan and his angels in hell, then, because they have been traveling back and forth from hell
to the earth.

Maybe, hell is where they meet to make their plans on how to create havoc on humanity

Maybe, God made hell as a place for them to live and plan and stage their attacks from.

Psalms 16:10

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to
see corruption.

Acts 2:27

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to
see corruption.

Acts 2:31

He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in
hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Here, we have Jesus dying and going to hell. It is a good thing God did not leave Him in hell.

Question: Why would Jesus Christ be sent to hell?

Revelation 20:13

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the
dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Here, we have all of the people who died in the sea, maybe all of the sailors that went down in
ships.

Question: Why were they in the sea and not in hell burning?

If you take all of these verses literally, it sounds a little ridiculous does it not?

But that is what mankind has done.

Romans 7:6

But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that
we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

2 Corinthians 3:6

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of
the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

To read the bible literally, only, is death.

1 Corinthians 15:56

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

The strength of sin is the law. It is our earthly and carnal understanding that we get from self
when we read the law and put our own understanding to it.
