The lake of fire does NOT last "forever AND ever"


 

"Forever and ever" is NOT the duration of the lake of fire, though many popular bible translations hide this peace-giving truth.

God has good in store for the worst supernatural being and the worst human being. His hand is long enough to save them. This means His hand is long enough to save all. And that's exactly what He'll do, based on the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Calvinists, like John Piper, can't do justice to the love of God for all

 

Calvinists teach that God predetermines who will go to heaven forever and who will go to hell forever. The matter was settled before God created humanity.

As you can imagine, it's difficult, nay, IMPOSSIBLE, for Calvinists to offer any legitimate explanation of God's love for those He chose to create and condemn to the Christian hell forever AND ever. But, the Calvinist must give it a go because the Scriptures teach clearly that God loves all people. They fail.

Is torment eternal? Is punishment everlasting? No, and No!


The detrimental false teachings of eternal torment, everlasting punishment and eternal annihilation are due, in large part, to horrible mistranslations of the Greek words aion (a noun) and aionios (an adjective).

When you properly understand these words (and believe them) you'll gain an understanding of God that few have.

Many who misunderstand these 2 key words in God's revelation break a very simple rule of language, described in the video.

Massive contradictions exist in poorly translated bibles because of these mistranslations. Grasp the truth of these words, and the contradictions will disappear. Then you'll be able to see how God IS the Savior of all mankind Who also properly judges all mankind.

God's judgments are very real, but none are eternal or everlasting. You'll see that Jesus, the Savior of the world, actually DID save all by His death and resurrection. That's the GOOD NEWS!

Don't you like good news, especially when it's capitalized, bolded, underlined, red and followed by an exclamation point? I do.

Calling all Calvinists!

 

Calvinists correctly teach that God is the One Who saves man. Man is unable to save himself, or to even work with God to save himself. It is ALL of God. Man can do nothing apart from God, because that is the way God made us. That's OK, I trust God to do what is right for us.

Calvinists rarely, if ever, use this one verse to support their teaching of "total inability." I'll explain why in this video.

Do Jesus' words concerning Judas' birth disprove universal salvation?

 

Many who deny Jesus' saving of all will point to Jesus' words concerning Judas as evidence that "the Savior of the world" won't actually save the world. Why don't you see for yourself what the Scriptures teach.

All of Satan's Acts Will Be Completely Undone By Jesus


1 John 3:8 shows us clearly one reason why Jesus came to earth:

Yet he who is doing sin is of the Adversary, for from the beginning is the Adversary sinning. For this was the Son of God manifested, that He should be annulling the acts of the Adversary.

Is that not great news?

How to EASILY disprove human free will


The popular teaching that humans have a free will and are "free moral agents" undermines and diminishes the only One Who truly does have a free will—God.

He is the Potter, and we are His clay. Clay does nothing apart from the Potter. Nothing. And anything the clay "does" is, in reality, being done by the Potter.

But, by the wisdom and power of God, even though we are not truly free, we FEEL free (at least as free as we can feel with all of the visible and invisible forces God uses to move us and restrict us).

The fact that He is actually in control of all things should give us comfort. Who else would you want to be running this show? Bruce Almighty?

Orthobox Christianity prematurely declares Adam's victory over Jesus

Copyright Wes Fahlenkamp

Orthobox Christianity (OC) has a tiny god box. But that's OK, for them, because OC's tiny god and tiny Jesus fit comfortably into their flimsy, wet box. Did I mention it was tiny? Good.

OC will tell you that Jesus is obviously greater than Adam (who would dare say anything different?). But their words are proven to be as flimsy as their box. When pushed on the issue (and you should push them—hard), they will admit that Adam's sin condemns all, but Jesus' sacrifice saves only a small fraction of that same all. The rest of the all? Well, according to OC, they are either tormented forever, or annihilated by the "Savior" and "God" that failed to overcome Adam and Satan.

Romans 5 reveals to us the power of Adam's disobedience, the results of which we see every day. But it also reveals to us the overpowering power of Jesus' obedience, the full results of which we can't currently see. We must believe in the surpassing work of Christ by faith, while it takes no faith to observe the condemnation that resulted from Adam.

Thus, OC proves itself to be faithless, as it looks at the scoreboard, with eons remaining on God's clock, and prematurely declares Adam the winner. And, in turn, they unwittingly give Satan a great everlasting victory over their tiny Jesus.

But, the contest is not over, and God and Christ (the real Ones, the full-sized Ones) are still working. And just as the condemnation brought by Adam is now visible everywhere, the full victory of Christ will be visible everywhere, in God's time.

Oh, in that little Trump vs. Biden contest, you got to vote. In the Adam vs. Jesus contest, you get no vote. You were condemned in Adam without your permission, and, in Jesus, you will be saved from that condemnation without your permission.

Please read, and understand, the full scope of Adam's and Jesus' work. Romans 5:12–21,

Therefore, even as through one man sin entered into the world, and through sin death, and thus death passed through into all mankind, on which all sinned --
13 for until law sin was in the world, yet sin is not being taken into account when there is no law;
14 nevertheless death reigns from Adam unto Moses, over those also who do not sin in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him Who is about to be.
15 But not as the offense, thus also the grace. For if, by the offense of the one, the many died, much rather the grace of God and the gratuity in grace, which is of the One Man, Jesus Christ, to the many superabounds.
16 And not as through one act of sinning is the gratuity. For, indeed, the judgment is out of one into condemnation, yet the grace is out of many offenses into a just award.
17 For if, by the offense of the one, death reigns through the one, much rather, those obtaining the superabundance of grace and the gratuity of righteousness shall be reigning in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
18 Consequently, then, as it was through one offense for all mankind for condemnation, thus also it is through one just award for all mankind for life's justifying.
19 For even as, through the disobedience of the one man, the many were constituted sinners, thus also, through the obedience of the One, the many shall be constituted just.
20 Yet law came in by the way, that the offense should be increasing. Yet where sin increases, grace superexceeds,
21 that, even as Sin reigns in death, thus Grace also should be reigning through righteousness, for life eonian, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
And, believe by faith now the future full manifestation of Christ's victory. 1 Corinthians 15:20–28,

Yet now Christ has been roused from among the dead, the Firstfruit of those who are reposing.
21 For since, in fact, through a man came death, through a Man, also, comes the resurrection of the dead.
22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified.
23 Yet each in his own class: the Firstfruit, Christ; thereupon those who are Christ's in His presence;
24 thereafter the consummation, whenever He may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father, whenever He should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power.
25 For He must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy is being abolished: death.
27 For He subjects all under His feet. Now whenever He may be saying that all is subject, it is evident that it is outside of Him Who subjects all to Him.
28 Now, whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him, that God may be All in all.

I recommend the following for a deeper dive into Christ's victory for all over Adam.

The ends of the 4 Christian hells, Part 4 (short version)

The final Christian hell we are going to look at is not translated as hell in any bible that I'm aware of. Despite this, much of Christianity says the lake of fire is hell ... and hades/sheol is hell ... and Gehenna is hell ... and Tartarus is hell. That's 4 distinct places said to be hell by Christianity. And that's a mess. But Christianity is not concerned with how messy, and unscriptural, their teachings and traditions of hell are.

The lake of fire/second death is the last "hell" standing. And it will stand for a length of time, playing its part in God's plans, until its part is no longer needed.

The lake of fire is mentioned six times in the Scriptures. From the Concordant Literal New Testament (CLNT),
Revelation 19:20
And the wild beast is arrested, and with it the false prophet who does the signs in its sight, by which he deceives those getting the emblem of the wild beast, and those worshiping its image. Living, the two were cast into the lake of fire burning with sulphur.
Revelation 20:10–15
And the Adversary who is deceiving them was cast into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the wild beast and where the false prophet are also. And they shall be tormented day and night for the eons of the eons. 11 And I perceived a great white throne, and Him Who is sitting upon it, from Whose face earth and heaven fled, and no place was found for them. 12 And I perceived the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. And scrolls were opened. And another scroll was opened which is the scroll of life. And the dead were judged by that which is written in the scrolls in accord with their acts. 13 And the sea gives up the dead in it, and death and the unseen give up the dead in them. And they were condemned, each in accord with their acts. 14 And death and the unseen were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death-the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone was not found written in the scroll of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 21:8
Yet the timid, and unbelievers, and the abominable, and murderers, and paramours, and enchanters, and idolaters, and all the false-their part is in the lake burning with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.

The second death


There are two more verses teaching us about the second death. Revelation 2:11, "Who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit is saying to the ecclesias. 'The one who is conquering may under no circumstances be injured by the second death.'"

And Revelation 20:6, "Happy and holy is he who is having part in the former resurrection! Over these the second death has no jurisdiction, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will be reigning with Him the thousand years."
 

"Surely, the lake of fire is the end for the baddies."


If you've read this series, you've seen that hades/sheol is not the end for the dead. Gehenna is also not their end. And Tartarus is not the end of the sinning messengers. But surely, Shirley, the lake of fire is the end of the road for unbelievers. Right?

The last thing we read about the lake of fire/second death in the last book in our bibles, Revelation, is this,
Yet the timid, and unbelievers, and the abominable, and murderers, and paramours, and enchanters, and idolaters, and all the false-their part is in the lake burning with fire and sulphur, which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)
One would think this will be their final end if one thinks the book of Revelation is the end of God's eonian story. And one would be wrong.

The last people to ever die (meaning the death event, not the process of dying) will be those cast into the lake of fire. They will be killed by the second death. Annihilationists and eternal tormentists say those cast into the lake of fire will be dead forever. The annihilationists say they will be the dead-dead, while the eternal tormentists say they will be the living-dead. Thus, according to their demonic teachings, death operates forever as it holds the dead in the death state. According to them, since death is no longer killing people, is has been abolished by Christ, thus fulfilling 1 Corinthians 15:26, "The last enemy is being abolished: death." But how can that be true if the second death holds people forever? It can't. They give death a great victory over Christ and "the living God, Who is the Saviour of all mankind, especially of believers" (1 Timothy 4:10). They "are deceived, not being acquainted with the scriptures, nor yet with the power of God" (Matthew 22:29). 

God, our phenomenally creative genius Creator, tucked the end of the eonian story inside the guts of His book. It's better than anything you've ever read. And it's found in 1 Corinthians 15:20–28.   


"When will the second death be abolished?"


That is a great question. Here's the great answer, provided by God.

In 1 Corinthians 15:20–28, God reveals to us events that will occur long after those revealed in the book of Revelation. In this passage He gives us many key indicators that will signal the successful completion of Christ's reign, which includes the abolition of death. Christianity misses this by a mile, or, shall I say, by an eon.

Yet now Christ has been roused from among the dead, the Firstfruit of those who are reposing. 21 For since, in fact, through a man came death, through a Man, also, comes the resurrection of the dead. 22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified. 23 Yet each in his own class: the Firstfruit, Christ; thereupon those who are Christ's in His presence; 24 thereafter the consummation, whenever He may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father, whenever He should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power. 25 For He must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy is being abolished: death.
27 For He subjects all under His feet. Now whenever He may be saying that all is subject, it is evident that it is outside of Him Who subjects all to Him. 28 Now, whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him, that God may be All in all.

This whole passage is key. Within this key passage is the key verse 22, "For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified." Christianity does not believe, or teach, this simple, tradition-shattering truth that God caused Paul to write to bless the socks and shoes off of humanity. In fact, they hate it because it is so simple and true, and they have a hell of a time trying to squeeze this big truth into their teeny-tiny god box. This simple truth tells us that all who are dying because of Adam (that's every single human) will be vivified because of Christ. I don't know how God could have made this truth simpler and clearer. Don't screw with it. Just believe it.

Vivified means made alive. But it is not the making alive to mortality, as some were raised by Jesus during His time on earth. It is the making alive to immortality, which is exactly what happened to Christ, the Firstfruit. He is the living definition of vivification.

There are three vivification events. 1. "the Firstfruit, Christ" (v.23), 2. "those who are Christ's in His presence" (when He returns at the end of this present wicked eon, v.23), and 3. "thereafter the consummation" (v.24). Vivifications 2 and 3 will include all humanity. This leads us to the logical question, "When is the consummation?"

Following are the events of the consummation, which include the final vivification of humanity, which coincides with the abolition of death.

  • whenever [Christ] may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father (v.24)
  • whenever [Christ] should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power (v.24)
  • For [Christ] must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet (v.25)
  • The last enemy is being abolished: death (v.26)
  • He subjects all (except God) under His feet (v.27)
  • whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him (v.28)
  • God may be All in all (v.28)

So, the answer to the question, "When will the second death be abolished?" is "at the consummation." The events of the consummation we just bulleted will occur at the end of eon 5, the new heaven and new earth eon. See The Eonian Times Chart.
 
Though we are enduring wickedness in this current wicked eon, we are all in God's hands. And, at the consummation of the eons, and beyond, we will all still be in His hands. He will be "All in all," and none will be damned to any of the mythical Christian hells.
