Everlasting Fire

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

(Matthew 25:41) KJV

In Matthew chapter 24 Jesus describes the final judgement that takes place at the end of the Millennial Kingdom. At this time hell will be cast into the lake of fire. The everlasting fire that Jesus refers to isn’t hell, it’s something else.

The lake of fire may be a body in our planetary system which has been prepared for the purpose of carrying all sin and corruption into the infinite void of space. We’re thinking Venus. This means we need to address the following commonly preached misconception:

If you reject Jesus Christ you’ll burn in hell for eternity.

– Commonly preached error.

It is a misconception because hell is temporary, however, if you reject Jesus Christ you will burn in everlasting fire. The lake of fire and brimstone isn’t the same thing as hell.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

The Big Picture

From the beginning I predicted the outcome;
long ago I foretold what would happen.
I said that my plans would never fail,
that I would do everything I intended to do.

(Isaiah 46:10) Good News Translation

We can parse the difference between hell and the lake of fire because we’ve laid out the broad narrative of scripture, the conceptual backbone of the Bible, a theme which weaves together the law, prophets and the gospel.

The Bible is consistent throughout because it describes the physical expression in space and time of spiritual concepts, like light and darkness, good and evil, which are as fundamental as the elemental particles of which the universe is made. This also allows us to deduce the purpose of creation. With this in mind here’s a summary of the broad narrative of scripture.

A Brief Synopsis of the Broad Narrative of Scripture

God is Light1 John 1:5
Darkness is inherent to free willJohn 1:5
Light and darkness must be physically separatedGenesis 1:6
God dwells in the lightPsalms 104:1-2
Light is above on the peripheryDaniel 12:3
Light, life and good are equivalentJohn 3:19-21
Darkness, death and evil are equivalentJob 30:26
Darkness is below at the centerJob 28:3
Once it has accumulated at the center, darkness will be cast into the furthest reaches of spaceMatthew 8:12
Light comes down from above to the center, darkness will be goneRevelation 21:2, 23
