Universal Reconciliation

Universal Reconciliation
Get the truth without the fantasies, myths and traditions at http://gracesuperexceeds.blogspot.com

The views expressed here are my own. As a student of the bible I have sought the truth from prayer, studying different translations of the scriptures and by digging into the Greek and Hebrew. There are several "Senior Instructors and Bible Teachers" whose work in the field I greatly respect. You can find links to their web sites on my blog Grace Superexceeds. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the ultimate instructor. We should all strive to seek the guidance of God our Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. We should never cease to give thanksgiving for our blessings and for the superexceeding grace that is poured out for us.

What is Universal Reconciliation?

Universal Reconciliation is the realization of the gift that God has given to mankind. That gift is called grace. It is none other than God's begotten Son and our savior, Jesus Christ. He was made to be our sin. He, who never sinned Himself, took our sins and bore them on the tree. He was sacrificed as the Passover Lamb so that we may have life. He bore not just our sins but the sins of the world. His sacrifice was a gift from God. This plan for our salvation was planned before we were even born. As a matter of fact, before the world was created! God knew we were fallible. We are exactly what He created! He knew we needed a savior and He provided for us as only a father could. Our risen savior, Christ Jesus will fulfill his Father's desires and wishes. He will save all of mankind. The scriptures teach this. 1Timothy 4:9-11 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach. (KJV) Paul felt so strongly about this fact that he told Timothy that this was a faithful saying and was worthy of everyone accepting it. After he made the statement, Paul told Timothy to command it and teach that the Living God is the savior of ALL MANKIND. But he says, especially those who believe. That statement ALL MANKIND does not exclude the non-believers; NO, it includes them. What is special about the believers? The ones who believe during this present age or era, will reign with Christ! They will work alongside Christ Jesus to subject all under His feet. The non-believers will be saved at the Great White Throne judgment. Christ's blood saves everyone! The lake of fire is symbolic. The scriptures say the lake of fire IS the second death. At the consummation, the last class or those remaining, will be raised, justified and glorified! Please see my post on Paul's Evangel on my blog Grace Superexceeds. You may also read 1 Corinthians chapter 15 for yourself.

You may now be wondering....What do you believe and what verses support your beliefs?

God The Father: There is no other God except One, God, the Father, out of Whom all is.

1 Corinthians 8:4-6 ...and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Galatians 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

Romans 11:36 All is out of Him, through and for Him.

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Isaiah 45:22,23 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. (I believe Him!)

Christ Jesus: He is the channel through Whom all is, all things were created through him, he is the image of the invisible Father, He is out of the Father, sent by the Father, sits next to the Father, the first born of all creation and the First Fruit. He was born of a virgin from the seed of God's Holy Spirit; He is the Son of the Most High. He never did his own will, never sinned but was made to be sin; he bore our sins on the tree. The only way to God is through our Lord and Savior, The Son of the Most High, Christ Jesus. Christ Himself came out of God. Christ is the living revelation of God, the very image of God, God's creative original, the Logos.

1 Corinthians 8:6 ...one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Philippians 2:6-8 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

1 Timothy 2:5,6 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (KJV) (in due time!)

Evil: God creates evil. God uses evil to punish, to chastise, to destroy, to test; He uses evil to humble us! He uses evil to make his name known throughout the world. The evil God uses is not a moral evil. God cannot sin. He saw everything he had created and it was good. No one can resist His will. Apart from evil and sin, God could not unveil His heart. Evil and sin are justified from His standpoint, for they will bring untold blessing to His creatures, through the sacrifice of Christ. Man must be taught the knowledge of good AND evil. Why else would the tree have been in the middle of the Garden? God could have kept Satan out of the Garden, but he chose not to. God's plan will be fulfilled; no one can stay His hand. It is ALL about the Glory of God and the reconciliation of all of His creation to Him. Even when contrary to His stated will, God uses evil to carry out his intention.

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Amos 3:6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?

Ecclesiates 1:13 I applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens:  It is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it. (Concordant Literal)

Exodus 5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. God said: "Let my people go". Exodus 10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him: God hardened his heart. His stated will was Let my people go, yet his intention was that Pharaoh not let them go so the God could show his power and publish his name.

Romans 9:19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

Romans 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.

Romans 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. (KJV)

Satan the Adversary: Satan was never a perfect angel; he was created by God to be the adversary. He was created to be God's chastening rod, to be the destroyer, to test God's people. He resides in Heaven, comes and goes throughout the earth. Satan reports for duty when God requires. Paul used him and God used him to keep Paul in check. God's word gives us this knowledge. The prince of Tyrus, King of Tyrus and the King of Babylon may have been perfect, may have brought light, may have walked in God's Garden of Eden but they are DEAD and Satan is not!

Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God...(Who, Prince of Tyre/Tyrus)

Ezekiel 28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. Satan's fate is not determined by the hand of a stranger.

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Ezekiel 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. This cannot be Satan, Christ says Satan, was a murderer from the beginning!

Isaiah 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! Against who? King of Babylon.

Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Worms covering Satan?

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Job 1:6,7 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

Job 1:8 And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Hast thou set thy heart against My servant Job because there is none like him in the land, a man perfect and upright, fearing God, and turning aside from evil?' (Young's Literal)

Job 1:12 Yahweh said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power. Only on himself don't put forth your hand." So Satan went forth from the presence of Yahweh. (World English Bible)

Colossians 1:16,17 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.

Job 26:7, 13-14 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent. Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

Isaiah 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. (ASV)  Who does God say the serpent is?

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. (ASV)

1 Timothy 1:20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. (KJV)

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. (KJV)

2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. (KJV) A messenger of Satan's kept Paul in check with a physical defect and/or pain.

Concerning Salvation in this present wicked eon: Grace Superexceeds! gracesuperexceeds.blogspot.com  Please see blog titled Paul's Evangel. "Grace plus nothing". As Paul said: Romans 7:24 A wretched man am I! What will rescue me out of this body of death? Grace! (Concordant Literal) Both the saved and the unsaved in this eon will be saved by God's fire. God's righteous judgment will save all. Those foreordained, will be saved in this eon by grace but will be tried by fire and their works will be burned by fire.

Salvation of the Sons of Stubbornness:  Those not saved during this eon will be saved at the Great White Throne Judgment by God's fiery judgment. Through the blood of Christ’s cross, all the estranged on earth and in heaven shall be reconciled at the consummation. The blood of the cross is for all creation (Col.1:16-20), creation and reconciliation have the same scope. The blood of the Passover Lamb takes away the sin of the World!

1Timothy 2:4 Who wills that all mankind be saved and come into a realization of the truth. (Concordant Literal)

1Timothy 4:10 (for this are we toiling and being reproached), that we rely on the living God, Who is the Saviour of all mankind, (Concordant Literal)

1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy is being abolished: death. (Concordant Literal)

Colossians 1:20  and through him to reconcile the all things to himself--having made peace through the blood of his cross--through him, whether the things upon the earth, whether the things in the heavens. (Young's Literal)

The Eons: The difficulty between most versions of the bible and my understanding has to do with time and the mistranslation of aion/aionios. The Greek word aion has been translated by the KJV translators as: ages 2 times, course 1 time, world 40 times, ever 72 times, never 7 times, evermore 4 times and eternal 2 times.

The Greek word aionios has been translated everlasting 25 times, eternal 42 times, world 3 times and ever once. That is just the Greek, the same issue applies to olam in the Hebrew. An aion is quite simply an age. There are eons, an eon of the eons, eons of the eons and the conclusion of the eons.

Concerning Sodom:  Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (KJV) or Ezekiel 16:55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate. (KJV) Which one is true? Well we know it is not eternal fire, Sodom is not burning today day. I have been there and i can assure you it is not still burning!

Concerning Jonah: Jonah 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. (KJV) Was Jonah in the belly of the whale for ever or for three days?

There is an eon from the original creation until Genisis 1:1. Genesis 1:2 until the flood is another eon. This present wicked eon started with the flood and lasts until the beginning of the millennial reign. Man rules to prove we cannot do it justly and how could we with Satan and his angels operating in the sons of stubbornness. The next eon is the millennial rule by Christ.  He will rule with an iron rod. The valley of Hinnom will once again be used to burn the rubbish and the bodies of dead criminals that suffered capital punishment, (Gehenna Fire, NOT hell fire).

God’s Eonian Purpose: The Scriptures speak of God’s wisdom, in a secret, designated before the eons/ages. His purpose and grace before eonian times and life promised before eonian times or ages. God is King of the eons, and He made them through Christ. Five eons can be found. The first two eons are not mentioned, but their worlds are. Two eons are impending, and we are living in the present wicked eon. They have consummations and a conclusion. God is the Savior of all mankind at the consummation, but especially of believers during the eons. The believers, through grace, foreordained before the disruption/foundation of the world, will reign with Christ during the millennial rule. At the consummation, those remaining are saved, justified, vivified and all the estranged reconciled. Death will be abolished, sin eliminated; Christ's throne is abdicated in favor of God and God will be All in all.

1 Corinthians 2:7,8 but we are speaking God's wisdom in a secret, wisdom which has been concealed, which God designates before - before the eons, for our glory, which not one of the chief men of this eon knows, for if they know, they would not crucify the Lord of glory." (Concordant Literal)

2 Timothy 1:9 who did save us, and did call with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, that was given to us in Christ Jesus, before the times of the ages, (Young's Literal)

Titus 1:2 upon hope of life age-during, which God, who doth not lie, did promise before times of ages, (Young's Literal)

Ephesians 2:2  in which once ye did walk according to the age of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience, (Concordant Literal)

Hebrews 1:2 in these last days did speak to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He did make the ages; (Young's Literal)

1 Timothy 1:17 Now to the King of the eons, the incorruptible, invisible, only, and wise God, be honor and glory for the eons of the eons! Amen!" (Concordant Literal)

Galatians 1:4 Who gives Himself for our sins, so that He might extricate us out of the present wicked eon, according to the will of our God and Father, (Concordant Literal)

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all this befalls them typically. Yet it was written for our admonition, to whom the consummations of the eons have attained." (Concordant Literal)

Hebrews 9:26 since then He must often be suffering from the disruption of the world, yet now, once, at the conclusion of the eons, for the repudiation of sin through His sacrifice, is He manifest." (Concordant Literal)

1 Timothy 2:4 Who wills that all mankind be saved and come into a realization of the truth. (Concordant Literal)

1 Timothy 4:10 (for for this are we toiling and being reproached), that we rely on the living God, Who is the Saviour of all mankind, (Concordant Literal)

Romans 5:18 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." (Concordant Literal)

1 Corinthians 15:22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified." (Concordant Literal)

1 Timothy 6:13 I am charging you in the sight of God, Who is vivifying all, and of Jesus Christ, Who testifies in the ideal avowal before Pontius Pilate, (Concordant Literal)

1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy is being abolished: death. (Concordant Literal)

Colossians 1:20  and through him to reconcile the all things to himself--having made peace through the blood of his cross--through him, whether the things upon the earth, whether the things in the heavens. (Young's Literal)

2 Timothy 1:10 yet now is being manifested through the advent of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, Who, indeed, abolishes death, yet illuminates life and incorruption through the evangel"(Concordant Literal)

Hebrews 9:26 since then He must often be suffering from the disruption of the world, yet now, once, at the conclusion of the eons, for the repudiation of sin through His sacrifice, is He manifest." (Concordant Literal)

1 Corinthians 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

1 Corinthians 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

All scripture is Given by God  All scripture is inspired by God, and is beneficial for teaching, for exposure, for correction, for discipline in righteousness. The pattern of sound words must be preserved as given in the Originals. The word of truth must be rightly divided, and each part applied to those to whom it was written: our Lord’s ministry and the twelve apostles to the Circumcision, and Paul to the nations. All scripture is for us, but it is not all about us. Failure to understand this creates a lot of confusion.

Miles Coverdale in 1535 wrote: "It shall greatly help ye to understand scripture, if thou mark, not only what is spoken and written - but to whom, and of whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before, and what followeth."

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Romans 15:8,9 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

Hell and Hell fire:  There is no such thing as the Christian hell that will burn flesh for ever and for ever. It is a manmade hoax! It is a pagan concept, it is false and the thought that God our Father would burn any of his creation in a hell of eternity for vengeance or for any other reason is repulsive. I am convinced that no one who believes that God, Our Heavenly Father, is capable of such a thing can truly know God. They cannot know Him and believe that he would do that!

Matthew 7:22,23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. I never knew you! Now who is it that does those things in the name of God?  

Augustine, Dante and others popularized the idea that originated with pagan idol worship. At one point in time, Israelites burned their own children to death sacrificing them to the god Molech. Would God do to His children what he condemned them for doing? I do not think so.

Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. (KJV) The idea to burn people came from men, not from God!

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 When you are come into the land which Yahweh your God gives you, you shall not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found with you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices sorcery, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer, or a charmer, or a consulter with a familiar spirit, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh: and because of these abominations Yahweh your God does drive them out from before you. (WEB)

2 Chronicles 28:3 Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel. (KJV)

2Kings 23:10 And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech. (KJV)

The King James revisers did not help the hell confusion. In the translation of the Greek Scriptures, the word hell occurs 23 times in the KJV. It is translated from the Greek word Hades (place of the dead) 10 times, from Greek word gehenna (Valley of Hinnom) 12 times and the Greek tartaroo or tarturus 1 time. They would have done everyone a favor if they would have left those words as recorded in the Greek.

Hades is the place of the dead; no one is tortured in the place of the dead. The dead know not anything. Hades directly corresponds with the Hebrew Sheol, grave, pit, place of the dead.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. (KJV)

Tarturus is a place for messengers (angels). Who thinks a spirit can be burned with fire? By the way, who is it that will be judging the angels anyway? 1Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Gehenna is the place where children were sacrificed to Molech. It is also where the city of Jerusalem burned their trash and the rotting corpses of criminals. Today it is a lush green valley. There may still be worms but there is no fire. Mark 9:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. I believe capital punishment will be in force during the millennial rule. I believe the scriptures teach the valley of Hinnom will once again be used for those who are subject to gehenna fire.

Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. King James renders it hell fire; (KJV) Young's Literal renders the same scripture as gehenna of the fire. The Greek text says "gehenna".

Matthew 5:22 but I--I say to you, that every one who is angry at his brother without cause, shall be in danger of the judgment, and whoever may say to his brother, Empty fellow! shall be in danger of the sanhedrim, and whoever may say, Rebel! shall be in danger of the gehenna of the fire. (Young's Literal)

I would love to ask the KJV revisers about their translation of: 1Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? That word translated grave is Hades in the Greek. Why did they not translate it hell like they did 10 other times? Did they not want us to know that we had victory over Hell? Did they want us scared and subject to ecclesiastical rule?

Listen to these so called "men of God":

Martin Luther said: "it is the highest degree of faith to believe that God is merciful, who saves so few and damns so many: to believe Him just, who of His own will makes us necessarily damnable"

John Calvin said: "There are babies a span long in hell".

Peter Lombard: "The elect, while they will see the unspeakable sufferings of the ungodly, shall not be affected with grief, but rather satiated with joy at the sight, and give thanks to God for their salvation".

Thomas Aquinas said: "the bliss of the saved may please them more, and they may render more abundant thanks to God for it, they are permitted to gaze on the punishment of the wicked".

Augustine: "though infants departing the body without baptism will be in the mildest damnation of all, yet he greatly deceives and is deceived who preaches that they will not be in damnation."

Charles Spurgeon "When thou diest, thy soul will be tormented alone; that will be a hell for it, but at the day of judgment thy body will join thy soul, and then thou wilt have twin hells, thy soul sweating drops of blood, and thy body suffused with agony. In fire exactly like that which we have on earth thy body will lie, asbestos-like, forever unconsumed, all thy veins roads for the feet of pain to travel on, every nerve a string on which the devil shall forever play his diabolical tune of Hell's Unutterable Lament."

Those are the utterances of mad men who have been blinded by Satan and his messengers.

What is the lake of fire? Will those not found in the book of life burn forever? Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. This is the ONLY biblical definition of the lake of fire, it is the second death. 

What about fire?

Mark 9:49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

Luke 3:16 ...he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

1 Corinthians 3:13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

1 Corinthians 3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 

Hebrews 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

 

Have you experienced the fire?
