Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood. I do not write to share my research because I desire to be rich, famous, or powerful, but because investigating, studying, enquiring exploring, analysing and scrutinising, helps me learn what I don’t know. I simply love seeking, searching and researching, to discover the truth that is so rare, and become full of joy, uncovering the truth of our great GOD, and His Son’s hidden secrets.

I Simon Brown am no longer a Trinitarian, but an independent researcher in no denomination.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.
The Hebrew text of Deuteronomy 6:4 says: Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is ONE: (PERSON).

Hezekiah prayed before Yahweh, and said, "Yahweh, the God of Israel, who sit [above] the cherubim, YOU ARE THE GOD, EVEN YOU ALONE, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15. World English Bible.
Job 23:13: BUT HE ALONE IS GOD, and who can oppose him? God does as he pleases. The HEBREW text actually says GOD IS :בְ֭אֶחָד ḇə-’e-ḥāḏ [UNIQUELY] ONE.

From 2019 I now no longer believe the DEAD are alive in heaven or hell, or that Jesus Pre-Existed His flesh, but was a MAN and the only Begotten SON of his one true GOD, just as He only ever said.
You can see why I now believe Jesus did not Pre-Exist His flesh in my new videos and revised articles on this blog. Seek and you will find said Jesus.

Part 3. The true meaning of Mark 9:44, Mark 9:46,Mark 9:48.

Mark 9:44, Mark 9:46,Mark 9:48,

For part 1 THE FALSE TEACHINGS OF BURNING IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER, Revelation 14:11?

For part 2 The true meaning of Revelation 20:10.

Welcome to Part 3. The true meaning of Mark 9:44

King James Bible

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Very sadly modern Christianity does not represent true Christianity from the time of Jesus and the disciples.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1.

The TRINITY faith is terribly confused and is bursting with countless false teachings, and Bible contradictions and false modern Bible translations.

Here is another misunderstanding and false teaching within the TRINITY faith.

Mark 9:44

There are Trinitarians who believe Mark 9:44 which says: Where their (worm) dieth not, and the fire is not quenched, means: their (worm) is the soul of a person that survives death and does not die.

They continue to believe: and the fire is not quenched, means the unsaved will BURN in FIRE FOR EVER and EVER, and they will never die.

Let's clear up another Christian confusion and discover the true meaning of Mark 9:44 which says: Where their (worm) dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

There are many quotes in the new testament taken from the old testament, just like Matthew 1:23 which is a quote from Isaiah 7:14 for Jesus as Immanuel.

However many Christians are again confused with the words saying: God with us, in the end of Matthew 1:23 and wrongly believe God with us, is Jesus as GOD, when God with us simply means, God with us is actually  ''Yahweh'' The One True ALMIGHTY GOD of Israel was with His people by and THROUGH, DWELLING with His SON Jesus.

Just as Isaiah 8:8: the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.” Just as Isaiah 8:9: for God is with us, which is the same as Matthew 1:23 "God with us."

Now here is an obvious fact.

If Jesus was meaning in Mark 9:44 what most Christians believe that their (worm) is the soul of a person that survives death and NEVER DIES, then this belief contradicts the whole Bible, and Jesus own teachings, who tells us GOD will DESTROY, meaning (PUT TO DEATH) the sinners, the unsaved, and the wicked as He tells us in Matthew 10:28 because the penalty of SIN is DEATH Romans 6:23, NOT eternal life in the lake of fire, which Jesus confirmed was the SECOND DEATH Revelation 21:8

But to the cowardly and unbelieving and having become abominable and murderers and the sexually immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their portion is in the lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

DEATH means ANNIHILATION, and NOT ETERNAL LIFE, which is so simple and obvious to understand, and yet most of Christianity do not understand this simple fact.

There should not be any contradictions in the Bible, and if there is, then it should raise a red flag, proving there is something wrong, or we are not correctly understanding one or more of the Bibles teachings, probably because we have been deceived by false teachers.

The shocking truth is, as the TRINITY faith is full of Bible contradictions, this is obvious proof on its own that the TRINITY faith is a false religion, believing in a false Gospel, teaching Jesus is GOD, when the truth is instead Jesus is the SON of His One True GOD John 10:36.

According to the Trinity faith, both the saved and the unsaved who have died, have not died, but are still alive in heaven of Hell, when the truth is instead all the DEAD are at present ASLEEP: 

For this we declare to you in the word of the Lord, that we the living, remaining unto the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those having FALLEN ASLEEP.  1 Thessalonians 4:15.

Let's now see what the true meaning of Jesus teaching: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. Mark 9:44

To understand what Jesus meant by saying Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched Mark 9:44, we need to dig deeper into the Bible and travel back through the old testament and discover the meaning of Gehenna.

The Englishman's Concordance tells us there is 12 Occurrences with the word Strong's Greek: 1067. γέεννα (geenna)

I will now pull out all the verses with the word (Gehenna).

Matthew 5:22: "....whoever shall say, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into Gehenna."

Matthew 5:29: "....it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to be thrown into Gehenna."

Matthew 5:30: "....better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to go into Gehenna."

Matthew 10:28: "....rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul [Greek: ψυχή] and body in Gehenna."

Matthew 18:9: "It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than with two eyes to be thrown into the Gehenna...."

Matthew 23:15: "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you... make one proselyte...twice as much a child of Gehenna as yourselves."

Matthew 23:33, to the Pharisees: "You serpents, you brood of vipers, how shall you to escape the sentence of Gehenna?"

Mark 9:43: "It is better for you to enter life crippled, than having your two hands, to go into Gehenna into the unquenchable fire."

Mark 9:45: "It is better for you to enter life lame, than having your two feet, to be cast into Gehenna."

Mark 9:47: "It is better for you to enter the Kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into Gehenna."

Luke 12:5: "....fear the One who, after He has killed has authority to cast into Gehenna; yes, I tell you, fear Him."

Another book to use the word Gehenna in the New Testament is

James 3:6: "And the tongue is a fire,...and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by Gehenna."

And the Strong's Concordance tells us the meaning of Gehenna:

geenna: Gehenna, a valley W. and South of Jer., also a symbolic name for the final place of punishment of the ungodly

Original Word: γέεννα, ης, ἡ

Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine

Transliteration: geenna

Phonetic Spelling: (gheh'-en-nah)

Definition: Gehenna, a valley west and South of Jerusalem, also a symbolic name for the final place of punishment of the ungodly

Usage: Gehenna, and originally the name of a valley or cavity near Jerusalem, a place underneath the earth, a place of punishment for evil.

(a transliteration of the Hebrew term, Gêhinnōm, "the valley of Hinnom") – Gehenna, i.e. hell (also referred to as the "lake of fire" in Revelation).

Gehenna ("hell"), the place of post-resurrection torment (judgment), refers strictly to the everlasting abode of the unredeemed where they experience divine judgment in their individual resurrection-bodies. Each of the unredeemed receives one at the Great White Throne Judgment (Rev 20:11-15), i.e. a body that "matches" their capacity for torment relating to their (unique) judgment.

Gehenna, Hell,Lake of fire,

From studying I have read In the beginning the word Gehenna came from the valley of Hinnom where evil kings of Israel sacrificed their children to their gods.

And in later times we know Gehenna became a dump outside a valley of Jerusalem, where dead animals and bodies were burned.

The word Gehenna has become a symbolic name for the final place of punishment of the ungodly, called the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:15

And if anyone was not found having been written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

Let's now look at the verses in question: Mark 9:44,46,48, King James Bible,

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:44 & 9:46.

KJV: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. .. (Both verses identical to each other, and to 9:48, which is still in the main text)

Reason: Both verses 44 and 46 are duplicates of verse 48, which remains in the text. Verses 44 and 46 are both lacking in א,B,C,L,W,ƒ1, and some mss of the ancient versions, but appear in somewhat later sources such as A,D,K,θ, some Italic mss and the Vulgate. It is possible that verse 48 was repeated by a copyist as an epistrophe, for an oratorical flourish.[18] The UBS text assigns this omission a confidence rating of A. Lincoln H. Blumell, A Text-critical comparison of the King James New Testament with certain modern translations, Studies in the Bible and Antiquity, vol. 3 (2011) page 86.

From my research and understanding, Jesus was referring to God's Judgment against the Wicked seen in Isaiah 66:

15 For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and his chariots shall be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire will Yahweh execute judgment, and by his sword, on all flesh; and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.

17 "Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves [to go] to the gardens, behind one in the midst, eating pig's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, they shall come to an end together," says Yahweh.

18 "For I [know] their works and their thoughts: [the time] comes, that I will gather all nations and languages; and they shall come, and shall see my glory. 19 "I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the islands afar off, who have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. 20 They shall bring all your brothers out of all the nations for an offering to Yahweh, on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says Yahweh, as the children of Israel bring their offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahweh. 21 Of them also will I take for priests [and] for Levites," says Yahweh.

22 "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me," says Yahweh, "so your seed and your name shall remain.

23 It shall happen, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me," says Yahweh.

24 "They shall go forth, and look on the dead bodies of the men who have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they will be loathsome to all mankind."

Conclusion:

The words by Jesus saying: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched Mark 9:44, is simply a future prophecy of destruction of the unsaved as we read in Isaiah 66:15

For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and his chariots shall be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire will Yahweh execute judgment, and by his sword, on all flesh; and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.

Bible scholar Sr Anthony Buzzard told me:

The worms are simply those eating the dead carcases of the wicked. The Day of the Lord is the same event as the Parousia.

God will resurrect the dead saints and reward all the true people of God with immortality.

The wicked will be Burned UP and disappear as smoke Ps 37

So as we have seen, the Trinitarian doctrine who believe Mark 9:44 which says: Where their (worm) dieth not, and the fire is not quenched, they say means: their (worm) is the soul of a person that survives death and does not die, but burns for ever and ever, is wrong, but is instead figurative of a place of punishment and destruction.

I have added the whole verse that Jesus quoted from below:

Isaiah 66:

Rejoice with Jerusalem

7 "Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she delivered a son.

8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? shall a nation be brought forth at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth?" says Yahweh: "shall I who cause to bring forth shut [the womb]?" says your God.

10 "Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn over her;

11 that you may nurse and be satisfied at the comforting breasts; that you may drink deeply, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory."

12 For thus says Yahweh, "Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream: and you will nurse. You will be carried on her side, and will be dandled on her knees.

13 As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted in Jerusalem."

14 You will see [it], and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like the tender grass: and the hand of Yahweh shall be known toward his servants; and he will have indignation against his enemies.

God's Final Judgments against the Wicked

15 For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and his chariots shall be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire will Yahweh execute judgment, and by his sword, on all flesh; and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.

17 "Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves [to go] to the gardens, behind one in the midst, eating pig's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, they shall come to an end together," says Yahweh.

18 "For I [know] their works and their thoughts: [the time] comes, that I will gather all nations and languages; and they shall come, and shall see my glory. 19 "I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the islands afar off, who have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. 20 They shall bring all your brothers out of all the nations for an offering to Yahweh, on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says Yahweh, as the children of Israel bring their offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahweh. 21 Of them also will I take for priests [and] for Levites," says Yahweh.

22 "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me," says Yahweh, "so your seed and your name shall remain.

23 It shall happen, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me," says Yahweh.

24 "They shall go forth, and look on the dead bodies of the men who have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they will be loathsome to all mankind."

Please go to Part 4. The true meaning of Matthew 25:46

And these will go away into eternal punishment; but the righteous into eternal life."

 Noah's Biblical Flood Happened,

Evidence Noah's Biblical Flood Happened, Says Robert Ballard
Dr. Robert Ballard, an acclaimed underwater archaeologist, explains the evidence.
By JENNA MILLMAN, BRYAN TAYLOR and LAUREN EFFRON.

Dec. 10, 2012— -- The story of Noah's Ark and the Great Flood is one of the most famous from the Bible, and now an acclaimed underwater archaeologist thinks he has found proof that the biblical flood was actually based on real events.

In an interview with Christiane Amanpour for ABC News, Robert Ballard, one of the world's best-known underwater archaeologists, talked about his findings. His team is probing the depths of the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey in search of traces of an ancient civilization hidden underwater since the time of Noah.

Part 2. The true meaning of Revelation 20:10.

Revelation 20:10.

King James Bible

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

What is Revelation 20:10 about?

This verse is about a future prophecy of the Devil who deceived the whole world, and is referring to his final judgment and punishment on judgement day where the devil and the beast and the false prophet will be thrown, into the lake of fire and brimstone.

However, the confusion is that most of Christianity believe and teach the devil will never die, but will instead because of the false translations with the words saying (FOREVER AND EVER, implying a NEVER ENDING, they then wrongly believe and conclude the devil will BURN (FOREVER AND EVER) and will never die.

So in this article I will share my research with you, showing you the Biblical facts of how GOD will DESTROY the devil (FOREVER AND EVER) in the lake of fire as the unsaved.

Let's start off with seeing the many false translations below saying: (FOREVER AND EVER).

New International Version

And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night (for ever and ever).

New Living Translation

Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night (forever and ever).

English Standard Version

and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night (forever and ever).

Berean Study Bible

And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night (forever and ever).

The first obvious fact seen here in these false translations above in Revelation 20:10 is identical to the many false translations of Revelation 14:11.

Revelation 20:10


Revelation 14:11.


Notice the correct translation of Revelation 20:10 below in the Berean Literal Bible:

And the devil, the one deceiving them, was cast into the lake of fire and of sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet also are; and they will be tormented day and night to the (ages of the ages).

Revelation 20:10

Revelation 14:11

Se we see again, just as we saw in Revelation 14:11, that the correct words say: (ages of the ages), and do not say: forever and ever.

And just as we saw in Revelation 14:11, the words (ages of the ages) means a space of time, an age, a cycle (of time), a period of time, and NOT (FOREVER AND EVER), wrongly implying (FOREVER AND EVER) NEVER ENDS.

The next confusion within the Christian world is that most Christians believe Angels are immortal, meaning Angels can never die.

However I will show you by seeing the Biblical facts how Angels and demands being immortal is false.

This is because when Angels and demands sin and rebel against the One True GOD, they can also be DESTROYED, because anything that GOD has created, GOD can DESTROY.

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah Lord Yahweh! Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm; there is nothing too hard for you.

But because of GOD's amazing Righteousness, GOD will NEVER Kill or Destroy the Righteous.

What most of Christianity do not know or understand is that there is only one person ALONE who always had immortality.

The person who always had immortality is found in 1 Timothy 6:15-16

15 which He will display in the own seasons, blessed and alone Sovereign, the King of those being kings, and the Lord of those being lords, 16 alone having immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no one of men has seen nor is able to see, to whom be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.

As we read in 1 Timothy 6:15-16 the ONLY ONE PERSON who had immortality is Yahweh GOD, which is precisely why Yahweh GOD is called: THE ONLY ONE TRUE GOD.

In fact the very next verse tells us in 1 Timothy 6:17 that Yahweh GOD is the ONLY immortal, invisible, ONLY GOD:

Now to the King of the ages, the immortal, invisible, only God, be honor and glory to the ages of the ages. Amen.

And this is why Yahweh GOD told His people to pray every day saying: Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is ONE: (PERSON) Deuteronomy 6:4.

As Yahweh GOD is the ONLY immortal, invisible, ONLY GOD, then this is why Angels and demands and humans who sin and rebel against the One True GOD can and will be DESTROYED.

Genesis 6:3

Yahweh said, "My Spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; yet will his days be one hundred twenty years."

Notice how Adam was made immortal, but because He sinned against GOD, became mortal and died Genesis 2:15-17

15 Yahweh God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die."

Notice how Jesus was also a MAN and was mortal, who also died, proving Jesus was not GOD, but was raised by GOD from the DEAD and was made like GOD immortal: John 5:26

For as the Father has life in Himself, so also He gave to the Son to have life in Himself.

Because Jesus was the only MAN to overcome and do the will of GOD, He was therefore made immortal: Hebrews 5:9

and having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all those obeying Him.

John 6:57

As the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one feeding on Me, he also will live because of Me.

But what about the devil and His angels and the demons?

Where does the Bible teach the devil and His angels and the demons can be DESTROYED and DIE?

Notice what we read in Hebrews 2:14

Berean Literal Bible

Therefore, since the children have partaken of blood and of flesh, He also likewise took part in the same things, so that through His death He might (DESTROY) the one holding the power of death, that is, THE DEVIL.

So we read: 

He might (DESTROY) the one holding the power of death, that is, (THE DEVIL).

Strong's Concordance

katargeó: to render inoperative, abolish

Original Word: καταργέω

Part of Speech: Verb

Transliteration: katargeó

Phonetic Spelling: (kat-arg-eh'-o)

Definition: to render inoperative, abolish

Usage: (a) I make idle (inactive), make of no effect, annul, abolish, bring to naught, (b) I discharge, sever, separate from.

We also read in Mark 1:24 and Luke 4:34 how GOD will (DESTROY) the demons:

And having cried in a loud voice, he said, "What to me and to You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure You by God, do not torment me."

Notice how the demons understood that Jesus was the Son of the Most High God, and said nothing about Jesus being GOD.

Luke 4:34

"Ha! What to us and to You, Jesus of Nazareth? Are You come to (DESTROY) us? I know who You are, the Holy One of God!"

We read again ABOVE how the demons thought they were going to be (DESTROYED) before their time.

Notice the meaning of the Greek word (apollumi ἀπολέσαι) in the Strong's Concordance: 

apollumi: to destroy, destroy utterly Definition: to destroy, destroy utterly

Usage: (a) I kill, destroy, (b) I lose, mid: I am perishing (the resultant death being viewed as certain).

WHERE in the whole Bible does abolish or the Greek word (apollumi ἀπολέσαι) meaning (DESTROY) ever mean (ETERNAL LIFE) or (EVERLASTING LIFE)?

Notice how Revelation 11:18 tells us how GOD will DESTROY THOSE WHO ARE DESTROYING THE EARTH:

And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and to give the reward to Your servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and to those fearing Your name, the small and the great, and to DESTROY those who are destroying the earth."

2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us that the devil is the God of this world, and Jesus told us in John 10:10 how the Devil might DESTROY and be himself DESTROYED.

And Hebrews 2:14 tells us 

Berean Literal Bible

Therefore, since the children have partaken of blood and of flesh, He also likewise took part in the same things, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death, that is, the devil.

John 16:11

and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.

1 John 3:8

The one practicing sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this reason the Son of God was revealed, so that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Psalm 37:38

As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together. The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

Notice again in Psalm 37:38 how we do not read the transgressors, meaning those who rebel, will BURN DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER, but will instead be DESTROYED.

Psalm 37:38 even goes on to explain the wicked will be cut off, meaning to cease, destroy, kill, and perish.

As we have read in the scriptures above teaching how the devil and his works, and the demons and the one practicing sin will NOT BURN in HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER but will instead be utterly DESTROYED.

But please hold on as I share more Biblical fact with you.

What have we seen so far?

We have seen by examining the correct translation of Revelation 20:10 does not have the words saying (forever and ever), which deceives us into believing (NEVER ENDING).

But instead the correct translation of Revelation 20:10 has the words saying (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time).

And as the correct translation of Revelation 20:10 says (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time), that alone proves there is an END.

Because (a cycle of time) is a short part of time, that does not go on FOREVER and EVER.

Hebrews 1:2

Now we understand (ages of ages), means (a cycle of time), that comes to an END.

What about the words we have not examined?

What did John mean in the rest of the verse of Revelation 20:10 saying:

There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever, seems to still imply the devil will  BURN IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

So what did John mean by saying: And the devil, the one deceiving them, was cast into the lake of fire and of sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet also are; and they will be tormented day and night to the ages of the ages.

Friends, just as we saw in: Part 1. The true meaning of Revelation 14:11

The simple answer is again given in Isaiah 34:10.

Let me again please UNCOVER and share this hidden treasure with you.

Notice in both verses of Revelation 20:10 and Isaiah 34:10, by me adding the verses side by side:

Revelation 20:10

and they will be tormented day and night to the ages of the ages.

Isaiah 34:10

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. 

From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

Did you see what I saw?

We can all see something very obvious.

Revelation 20:10 says: and they will be tormented day and night to the ages of the ages.

And Revelation 14:11 says: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night.

And BOTH verses of Revelation 20:10, and Revelation 14:11, is virtually identical with Isaiah 34:10 which says:

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. 

So what we find is that Revelation 20:10, and Revelation 14:11 is a idiom and reference from the Old Testament of Isaiah 34:10.

And in the END of the verse of Isaiah 34:10, we have a clear explanation to the meaning of: It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. 

Isaiah 34:10 goes on to explain the meaning by saying: From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

Isaiah 34:10 is NOT saying: From generation to generation, Edom will keep on BURNING FOR EVER AND EVER, but is instead figurative and representative of COMPLETE destruction.

Isaiah 34:10 proves that Revelation 20:10, and Revelation 14:11 is NOT literal of literal FIRE BURNING for EVER AND EVER with NO END, but is figurative and symbolic of absolute DESTRUCTION by literal FIRE BURNING and DESTROYING FOR EVER AND EVER.

In fact the Bible is full of figurative and symbolic meanings from the beginning to the end, which can take different forms.

just as Jesus often spoke in Parables and figuratively: John 16:25

I have spoken these things to you in allegories; an hour is coming when I will speak to you no more in allegories, but I will report to you plainly concerning the Father.

Matthew 13:34

Jesus spoke all these things to the crowds in parables, and He was not speaking to them without a parable,

And we also know that the kingdom of Edom which Isaiah 34:10 is referring to is NOT BURNING, but was DESTROYED. 

Just as we read in Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible tells us:

It shall not be quenched night nor day,.... It will be long burning, and shall not be extinguished until it is utterly consumed. The burning of Rome will continue long, especially the smoke of it; the kings of the earth, and others, are represented as standing and looking at it, and lamenting for it, Revelation 18:9,

the smoke thereof shall go up for ever; this very phrase is what will be used by the saints in their "allelujahs", at the burning of Rome, Revelation 19:3 with which compare Revelation 14:11,

from generation to generation it shall lie waste; the land shall be no more manured and cultivated, nor the city rebuilt; when Babylon is once fallen, it shall never be raised up again, but always remain desolate, Revelation 18:2,

none shall pass through it for ever and ever; no inhabitant in it, nor traveller through it; it will be so horrible and terrible, as none will care to dwell there, yea, not so much as to travel through it; see Jeremiah 49:18.

Here are a few biblical facts to consider.

We know demons are fallen angels, who can suffer, as told in Matthew 8:29 and Luke 8:28 And behold, they cried out saying, "What to us and to you Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?"

The Greek word for torment  is (βασανίσαι) and means in the Strong's Concordance Definition: (to torture).

Luke 8:28

And having seen Jesus, having cried out, he fell down before Him and said in a loud voice, "What to me and to You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore of You that You might not torment me!"

Psalm 104:35

Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. Let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, my soul. Praise Yah!

This explains  why we read in Revelation 20:10 that the devil will be tormented:

King James Bible

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

We also know that Angels are ministering spirits without bodies. Hebrews 1:14 

Which explains why Revelation 20:10 does not say as in Revelation 14:11: And the smoke of their torment goes up.

As Angels do not have bodies, they would not produce SMOKE, as would the unsaved of the physical bodies in Revelation 14:11

2 Peter 2:4

For if God did not spare the angels having sinned, but having cast them down to Tartarus, in chains of gloomy darkness, delivered them, being kept for judgment.

We see in 2 Peter 2:4 how fallen angels are punished by being cast down to Tartarus, in chains of gloomy darkness, which must be a metaphor for sinful angels being detained, because angels do not have physical bodies to wear chains.

We know smoke is created from burning something that is perishable, which adds up to why we are told in Revelation 14:11 how the lost people will burn and create SMOKE: And the smoke of their torment goes up.

And as the unsaved of the physical bodies in Revelation 14:11 create SMOKE from the burning, that is evidence the unsaved physical bodies are perishing, and DYING, and not burning FOR EVER AND EVER.

And Jesus did say in Matthew 10:28 that GOD can DESTROY the BODY in HELL, proving GOD will raise the DEAD unsaved BODIES to punish in HELL.

SMOKE comes from burning perishable things like paper, wood, or flesh.

Which explains why Revelation 20:10 does not say as in Revelation 14:11: And the smoke of their torment goes up.

So as Angels do not have physical bodies they will not make any SMOKE from burning.

Most Christians believe Angels cannot experience physical death.

But as I said before, what GOD creates, If the Good turn bad, then GOD can and will DESTROY the bad, as we see will happen to the devil and the demons who are fallen angels:

Notice how Revelation 11:18 tells us how GOD will DESTROY THOSE WHO ARE DESTROYING THE EARTH:

And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and to give the reward to Your servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and to those fearing Your name, the small and the great, and to DESTROY those who are destroying the earth."

But what about the words saying: (day and night)?

The words saying: (day and night) are in both verses of Revelation 14:11 saying: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night, which is also in Revelation 20:10 

King James Bible

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented (day and night) for ever and ever.

The words saying (day and night), also sound like they mean the Devil and the unsaved will BURN DAY and NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER, right?

We already know that the words saying (FOR EVER AND EVER), are instead (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time).

And if (DAY and NIGHT) also means the devil and the unsaved will BURN (DAY and NIGHT) FOREVER AND EVER, as taught by most Christians, then we have some more serious Bible CONTRADICTIONS.

This is because Revelation 22:5 tells us (day and night) will NOT go on (FOR EVER AND EVER), because in the END of this (AGE), and in the NEW (AGE) of Creation by GOD and Jesus, there will be NO (NIGHT), and NO SUN that gives light, because Yahweh the One True GOD will become our light and shield, who will only SHINE on the righteous.

Revelation 22:5

And there will be no night there, and they have no need of the light of a lamp and of the light of the sun, because the Lord God will enlighten upon them, and they will reign to the ages of the ages.

As we read if the unsaved are burning (day and night) FOR EVER AND EVER, when there will be NO (day and night) this simply CONTRADICTS the coming Bible prophesies saying there will be NO MORE DAYS and NIGHTS ever again, because the Lord God becomes our day light shining on the righteous with love, power, peace, joy and glory.

So if NIGHTS END, as we see in the coming Bible prophesies, so does the devil and the unsaved burning (day and night) END, because there is no (day or night), but only GOD Himself shining as light.

And as we read in Revelation 21:4 there will be NO MORE mourning nor crying nor pain, then the lake of fire and brimstone, must DESTROY all evil FOR EVER AND EVER.

Revelation 21:4

And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more nor mourning nor crying nor pain; they will be no more, because the former things have passed away."

Mark 9:43

And if your hand should cause you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life crippled, than having two hands to go away into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire.

Above in Mark 9:43 we read how unrepentant sinners will go away into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire.

Unquenchable fire simply means the fire will not go out until it burns and DESTROYS.

Just as we read in Hebrews 2:14

Berean Literal Bible

Therefore, since the children have partaken of blood and of flesh, He also likewise took part in the same things, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death, that is, the devil,

Matthew 25:41

Then also He will say to those on the left, 'Depart from Me, those being cursed, into the eternal fire, having been prepared for the devil and his angels.

Eternal fire simply means it will BURN and DESTROY Eternally for eternity.

Luke 3:17

of whom the winnowing fork is in His hand to clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn. But He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

Notice the meaning of Luke 3:17 saying:  But He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

The meaning  of Luke 3:17 is found in 

Revelation 21:8 tells us the lake of Fire will be the SECOND DEATH, NOT ETERNAL LIFE, BUT ETERNAL DEATH.

But to the cowardly and unbelieving and having become abominable and murderers and the sexually immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their portion is in the lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

And in Mathew 10:28 Jesus tells us to fear GOD, who is able to DESTROY the unsaved:

And you should not be afraid of those killing the body but not being able to kill the soul. Indeed rather you should fear the One being able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

We never do read Jesus saying GOD will keep the unsaved burning in HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER, but instead Jesus says GOD will DESTROY the unsaved in the lake of fire Gehenna.

Conclusion.

Revelation 20:10 does not have the words saying (forever and ever), which deceives us into believing (NEVER ENDING).

But instead the correct translation of Revelation 20:10 has the words saying (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time).

And Revelation 14:11 says: And the smoke of their torment goes up.

And as the unsaved of the physical bodies in Revelation 14:11 create SMOKE from the burning, that is evidence the unsaved physical bodies are perishing, and DYING, and not burning FOR EVER AND EVER.

Psalm 37:20 World English Bible

But the wicked shall perish. The enemies of Yahweh shall be like the beauty of the fields. They will vanish-- vanish like smoke.

The words saying: (day and night) are in both verses of Revelation 14:11 and Revelation 20:10 saying: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night. Revelation 20:10 And the devil, the one deceiving them, was cast into the lake of fire and of sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet also are; and they will be tormented day and night to the ages of the ages. (a cycle of time).

The unsaved cannot keep on burning (day and night) FOR EVER AND EVER, when there will be NO (day and night) which simply CONTRADICTS the coming Bible prophesies saying there will be NO MORE DAYS and NIGHTS ever again, because the Lord God becomes our day light shining on the righteous with love, power, peace, joy and glory.

And we also know that the kingdom of Edom which is in Isaiah 34:10 that John may have added to Revelation 14:11 and Revelation 20:10 is NOT STILL BURNING, but was DESTROYED. 

2 Peter 2:6

and He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction, having reduced them to ashes, having set an example of what is coming on the ungodly.

And we see in 2 Peter 2:6 how the EVER LASTING FIRE DESTROYED Sodom and Gomorrah and its people making them into ashes.

As Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed, and the people that lived there are not still alive burning, physically or spiritually, but are dead and gone as an example, then we know for sure the eternal fire means to destroy eternally and permanently.

We end with Barnes statement:

This image (Isaiah 34:10) has been copied by John to describe the future woes of the wicked Revelation 14:11, and of mystical Babylon Revelation 18:9, Revelation 18:18; Revelation 19:2-3.

So Barnes believes John copied Isaiah 34:10 to the future woes of the wicked in Revelation 14:11:

Revelation 14:11 says: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night,

And Isaiah 34:10 says:

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

There we have it:

For the wages of sin is (DEATH) Romans 6:23, NOT ETERNAL LIFE IN FIRE.

The Bible prophecies prove there will be NO (DAY or NIGHT), therefore proving there will be NO ONE BURNING (DAY and NIGHT), because GOD The Father will be our light, shining on the righteous with pure delight, and power and glory (DAY and NIGHT).

Isaiah 34:9-10 proves the smoke rising (DAY and NIGHT) is simply figurative of destruction, Just as smoke goes up and disappears, as in the future prophecies of Revelation 14:11, and the destruction of Revelation 20:10.

Go to Part 3. The true meaning of Mark 9:44.

King James Bible

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

-------------------------------------------------------------

My own experience of GOD's presence.

When I Simon Brown was a young teenager, I was lying down in bed in darkness trying to get to sleep, when I had an amazing vision, I was picked up by a hand, and then at a height I was looking down on the earth and could see the whole earth burning. I remember pinching my face to see if I was asleep dreaming, yet I was fully awake.

For many years I did not understand what was the meaning of my vision, until years later I started studying the Bible, to then discover 2 Peter 3:7: But by the same word now the heavens and the earth exist, having been stored up for fire, being kept unto the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

Was 2 Peter 3:7 the meaning of my vision?

When I was in my forties, I had another amazing GOD experience.

I was studying Bible archaeology for many weeks regarding who was the pharaoh of the exodus.

At this time while study on my computer, I suddenly felt heat similar to electricity enter in my head, and it travelled down through my body filling my whole belly with great feelings of love, peace and joy.

I told my wife Emma what just happened and how I was feeling, as if I had just taken some valium, and that I needed to lie down and enjoy this amazing experience of what I could only think was GOD's presence within me.

I continued to feel love, peace and joy as if it was glowing in me for a whole hour.

I then came to the understanding and felt GOD was showing me how the saved will literally live in GOD's love, light, peace, joy and presence, just as we read in Isaiah 60:19 The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but Yahweh will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory.

Revelation 22:5

And there will be no night there, and they have no need of the light of a lamp and of the light of the sun, because the Lord God will enlighten upon them, and they will reign to the ages of the ages.

THE FALSE TEACHINGS OF BURNING IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER, Revelation 14:11?

realdiscoveriesorg-simon.blogspot.com

In this article:

Firstly, is HELL REAL?

Part 1. The true meaning of Revelation 14:11

King James Bible

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Part 2. The true meaning of Revelation 20:10

King James Bible

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

For Part 3. The true meaning of Mark 9:44, and 9:48.

King James Bible

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Part 4. The true meaning of Matthew 25:46

And these will go away into eternal punishment; but the righteous into eternal life."

Part 5 Scriptures Proving THE UNSAVED Will Not Have ETERNAL LIFE ROASTING IN HELL FIRE FOR EVER AND EVER.

We look at the countless scriptures teaching how GOD will NOT BURN the lost FOREVER, and EVER, but how GOD will KILL and DESTROY the lost FOREVER and EVER, implying utter destruction.

For the wages of sin is (DEATH), but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

------------------------------------------------------

Firstly, is HELL REAL?

Let us not deceive ourselves, HELL is the lake of FIRE called Gehenna, which has not yet come, but WILL COME on judgment day, called the great day of the Lord Joel 2:11: World English Bible

Yahweh thunders his voice before his army; for his forces are very great; for he is strong who obeys his command; for the day of Yahweh is great and very awesome, and who can endure it?

HELL Gehenna, the lake of FIRE will be for people who do not repent or obey GOD's commands, or who do not follow Jesus teachings, and a place where sinners and the ungodly and the WICKED will be punished, Revelation 20:15

And if anyone was not found having been written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

 Michael's Deliverance and the End Times

(Revelation 1:1-3)

Daniel 12:

1"At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who shall be found written in the book. 2 Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the expanse; and those who turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run back and forth, and knowledge shall be increased."

Many people may say, yes but I have never done anything that is evil, which may well be true, not understanding that Jesus said: The one not being with Me is against Me, and the one not gathering with Me scatters. Matthew 12:30.

As we see we are either for GOD and Jesus or against them, there is no middle ground.

Revelation 21:8

But to the cowardly and unbelieving and having become abominable and murderers and the sexually immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their portion is in the lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." 

Surrender Your life To God and His Son.

Let us believe, repent and humble and deny ourselves and follow Jesus and be saved, for this is why GOD has sent and sacrificed His Only Begotten Son Jesus, not to condemn us, but to save us, because Jesus payed the price for our sins on the cross, proving GOD's love:

John 3:16:

For God so loved the world that He gave the only begotten Son, so that everyone believing in Him should not perish, but should have eternal life.

Why was Jesus crucified?

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God, the One giving us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 1:10

and now having been made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, having abolished death and having brought to light life and immortality through the gospel,

GOD desires ALL to repent and be saved 2 Peter 3:9 - 13

The Day of the Lord

(Zephaniah 1:7-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11)

9 The Lord does not delay the promise, as some esteem slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but all to come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar, and elements will be dissolved, burning with heat, and the earth and the works in it will not be found.

11 All these things being dissolved in this way, what kind ought you to be? In holy conduct and godliness, 12  expecting and hastening the coming of the day of God, by reason of which the heavens will be dissolved, being set on fire, and the elements are melting, burning with heat. 13 But according to His promise, we are awaiting new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

Part 1. The true meaning of Revelation 14:11

King James Bible

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

There is a most horrible doctrine taught within the Trinity and the Oneness Pentecostal faiths, teaching and believing the lost will BURN IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER who will NEVER DIE.

Even when my wife Emma and I were deceived Trinitarians for 10 years, we NEVER did believe in such a horrible doctrine taught by most Christians saying our righteous GOD will not destroy the lost and wicked, but will instead TORTURE and BURN our lost loved one's in FIRE FOREVER and EVER.

How could GOD possibly be righteous by NOT destroying and killing and removing the ungodly and wicked from His amazing perfect Kingdom to come?

Psalm 104:35

Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. Let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, my soul. Praise Yah! 

How could GOD's new and perfect world to come, be a perfect world to come, when there are people in PAIN, BURNING IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

By the fact GOD will remove and destroy rebellious people who would not put their trust in GOD and His SON, is what will make a perfect world to come.

It is obvious to see how this false teaching of the lost BURNING IN PAIN IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER, contradicts the whole Bible, that says there will be NO MORE pain or suffering ever again as we are told in Revelation 21:4 There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

This is what makes our GOD righteous, by the fact He will reward the righteous people, and He will Kill and remove the people from His creation who refuse to believe and repent and accept GOD's love, forgiveness, mercy and grace, that comes through His SON Jesus.

Ezekiel 18:21

But if the wicked turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

In fact it was an absolute abomination to our GOD that people burned their baby sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods Molech, Deuteronomy 12:31.

In fact our righteous GOD rightly demanded that such evil people be put to death and be rightly KILLED, which is precisely what happened. Leviticus 20:2

And yet most of Christianity teach GOD will be worse by keeping the lost BURNING IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

How did most of Christianity become so deceived, to actually believe and teach a righteous GOD will TORTURE people in FIRE FOREVER and EVER?

Its time for the TRUTH.

Please may I now reveal the TRUTH, and show you the Biblical facts revealing how our righteous GOD Yahweh is truly JUST and WORTHY by showing you how the Scriptures do not contradict by saying in one hand the lost will be destroyed and DIE, or in the other hand the lost will NOT DIE, but instead will have ETERNAL LIFE in HELL FIRE.

Instead we will see how all Scriptures teach the same thing, and see the plain and simple truth, by seeing how GOD will reward the righteous, with EVERLASTING LIFE, and punish the wicked in EVERLASTING FIRE that DESTROYS FOREVER and EVER, which Jesus called the SECOND DEATH, revealing GOD's absolute righteousness.

Follow me in my research, and discover what I discovered!

Pray, Ask, Seek, and you will find said Jesus, Matthew 7:7.

Well, that's what I did, and look at what I found.

I found out how the most popular verse used to teach the lost will BURN IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER is in Revelation 14:11, and is completely misunderstood.

Let's have a look at Revelation 14:11.

New International Version

And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name."

The first and obvious fact is seen in the many false translations that most Christians are using.

Revelation 14:11.

Notice in the false translations below which all say: for ever and ever.

New International Version

And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name."

New Living Translation

The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.”

English Standard Version

And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Berean Study Bible

And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

Now notice the CORRECT translation of Revelation 14:11


Correct translation of Revelation 14:11.

Berean Literal Bible

And the smoke of their torment goes up to (ages of ages) and those worshiping the beast and its image have no rest day and night, and if anyone receives the mark of its name."

Did you notice the different words saying (ages of ages) and NOT forever and ever?

Because most Christians read the false translations saying: And the smoke of their torment will rise FOREVER and EVER, they therefore misunderstand and think John is teaching the lost will BURN IN HELLFIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

Instead of looking in the Greek text and seeing and understanding the different words say (ages of ages) and NOT forever and ever.

Now when we seek we find that the CORRECT words saying: And the smoke of their torment goes up to (ages of ages) means in the Strong's Concordance:

(ages of ages),

Definition: a space of time, an age

Usage: an age, a cycle (of time), 

So far what we have seen in the correct translations is how the lost will BURN for (ages of ages), in other words in a cycle (of time), which I am sure means will burn until they are consumed and destroyed.

Notice in our English, how we still use the words (ages), in phrase's like (I took ages), or (I waited ages), or (I slept for ages), or (they took ages), which is as we all know a phrase that means it took a long time.

And yet in the phrase's there is no exact time given.

We see in the Dictionary the meaning of (ages):

(ages):

Our English word (ages), used in our phrase's today, seem to perfectly fit with the Greek word used in the correct translations of Revelation 14:11 saying: And the smoke of their torment goes up to (ages of ages).

And as we have seen in the Strong's Concordance the meaning of the word (aión) is: a space of time, an age a cycle (of time), which is identical to our English word (ages), in our phrase's like (I took ages), or (I waited ages), or (I slept for ages), or (they took ages), which is as we all know a phrase that means it took a cycle of time, but the exact time is never given.

This adds up to why Jesus said in Matthew 10:15: Truly I say to you, on the day of judgment, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and of Gomorrah than for that city.

Sodom and Gomorrah
Is this the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah?

Because of what Jesus said in Matthew 10:15 that  it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and of Gomorrah, HOW could or would the punishment be DIFFERENT for the people of the land of Sodom and Gomorrah, if the teachings of all the lost will BURN in HELL FIRE day and night forever and ever was correct?

Here's something worth thinking about.

According to the teaching that the lost will BURN in HELL FIRE day and night FOREVER and EVER, this would simply mean the good Samaritan who did not give his life to Jesus, or the many sincere people who have never ever committed evil crimes, who may have done many good deeds in their life's, will receive the SAME punishment of  BURNING in HELLFIRE day and night FOREVER and EVER, as the people who have committed EVIL CRIMES, which contradicts what we read in Revelation 20:12 saying: And the dead were judged out of the things having been written in the books, according to their deeds.

Question:

If the lost, the EVIL, and the good Samaritan who did not believe in Jesus, are all thrown in the SAME FIRE, and if it were true that the lost will BURN in HELL FIRE day and night FOREVER and EVER, then what would be the point of being judged according to their works, Revelation 20:13, if all the lost, good or bad, still receive the SAME punishment of BURNING in HELL FIRE day and night FOREVER and EVER.

However, the correct translations saying the lost will BURN for (ages of ages), in other words will burn in a cycle (of time), now adds up perfectly with what we read in Revelation 20:13 saying: the lost will be judged according to their works.

In other words the lost will each burn in a cycle (of time), according to their works, just as punishment will be: more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah, Matthew 10:15.

Remember that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were already DESTROYED by FIRE, so could this be WHY it will be: more tolerable for the land of Sodom and of Gomorrah, on the day of judgment Matthew 10:15?

Sodom and Gomorrah

DISCOVERED - HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

We also know Sodom and Gomorrah and the people there are NO LONGER BURNING, and the people were completely destroyed, as an example of what is coming to the ungodly, as we read in 2 Peter 2:6

and He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction, having reduced them to ashes, having set an example of what is coming on the ungodly.

Sodom and Gomorrah documentary by Simon Brown.

We see in Jude 1:7 how the penalty of sin is eternal fire, which does not mean the fire never goes out, but instead means the fire destroys eternally and permanently.

just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, having indulged in sexual immorality and having gone after strange flesh, in like manner with them are set forth as an example, undergoing the penalty of eternal fire.

As Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed, and the people that lived there are not still alive burning, physically or spiritually, but are dead and gone as an example, then we know for sure the eternal fire means to destroy eternally and permanently.

It seems obvious to me that if HELL is going to be more bearable for the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, then that must be proof of the TEACHINGS OF BURNING IN HELLFIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER for the lost is false.

Sodom and Gomorrah

But please hold on, as I have saved the best until last!

What have we seen so far?

We have seen by examining the correct translation of Revelation 14:11 does not have the words saying (forever and ever), which deceives us into believing (NEVER ENDING).

But instead the correct translation of Revelation 14:11 has the words saying (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time).

And as the correct translation of Revelation 14:11 says (ages of ages), meaning (a cycle of time), that alone proves there is an END.

Because (a cycle of time) is a short part of time, that does not go on FOREVER and EVER.

Hebrews 1:2

Now we understand (ages of ages), means (a cycle of time), that comes to an END.

What about the words we have not examined?

What did John mean in the rest of the verse of Revelation 14:11 saying:

And the smoke of their torment goes up to ages of ages and those worshiping the beast and its image have no rest day and night, and if anyone receives the mark of its name." Berean Literal Bible

There will be no rest day or night Revelation 14:11, seems to still imply the lost will  BURN IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

So what did John mean by saying: And the smoke of their torment goes up, and those worshiping the beast and its image have no rest day and night,

Friends, the simple answer is given in Isaiah 34:10.

Let me please UNCOVER and share this hidden treasure with you.

Notice in both verses of Revelation 14:11 and Isaiah 34:10, by me adding the verses side by side:

Revelation 14:11

And the smoke of their torment goes up to ages of ages and those worshiping the beast and its image have no rest day and night, and if anyone receives the mark of its name." 

Isaiah 34:10

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

Did you see what I saw?

We can all see something very obvious.

Revelation 14:11 says: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night,

And Isaiah 34:10 says:

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. 

The question is, what is Isaiah 34:10 about?

Well in the Trinitarian Commentaries which I have added, give us some useful information about what  Isaiah 34:10 is about.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible tells us:

It shall not be quenched night nor day - That is, the burning brimstone and pitch Isaiah 34:9, the emblem of perpetual and entire desolation, shall not be extinguished.

The smoke thereof shall go up for ever - Every river and rivulet is Supposed to be heated pitch, and every particle of dust sulphur, and a 1 on fire, sending up from an extended region dense columns of smoke to heaven. No idea of ruin could be more sublime; no idea of the vengeance of God more terrible. 

Notice in Barnes next statement:

This image has been copied by John to describe the future woes of the wicked Revelation 14:11, and of mystical Babylon Revelation 18:9, Revelation 18:18; Revelation 19:2-3.

So Barnes believes John copied Isaiah 34:10 to the future woes of the wicked in Revelation 14:11:

Revelation 14:11 says: And the smoke of their torment goes up, have no rest day and night,

And Isaiah 34:10 says:

It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

Pulpit Commentary tells us:

Verse 10. - None shall pass through it forever and ever. There was a literal fulfillment of the prophecies against Edom to a considerable extent.

Says that the "mountains and the heritage of Esau were laid waste for the dragons of the wilderness" (Malachi 1:3); and he makes the Edomites themselves exclaim, "We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places"

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible tells us:

It shall not be quenched night nor day,.... It will be long burning, and shall not be extinguished until it is utterly consumed. The burning of Rome will continue long, especially the smoke of it; the kings of the earth, and others, are represented as standing and looking at it, and lamenting for it, Revelation 18:9,

the smoke thereof shall go up for ever; this very phrase is what will be used by the saints in their "allelujahs", at the burning of Rome, Revelation 19:3 with which compare Revelation 14:11,

from generation to generation it shall lie waste; the land shall be no more manured and cultivated, nor the city rebuilt; when Babylon is once fallen, it shall never be raised up again, but always remain desolate, Revelation 18:2,

none shall pass through it for ever and ever; no inhabitant in it, nor traveller through it; it will be so horrible and terrible, as none will care to dwell there, yea, not so much as to travel through it; see Jeremiah 49:18.

So as we have read according to the Trinitarian Commentaries Isaiah 34:10 was a literal fulfilment of the prophecies against Edom and a prophecy for the future of unbelievers as told in Revelation 14:11, which are virtually identical verses.

Yet in the end of the verse of Isaiah 34:10 we have a clear explanation to what the meaning is saying: It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever. 

And here in the END of the verse is the actual hidden meaning of: It won't be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up forever.

From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it forever and ever.

Just as smoke goes up and disappears.

So there is the answer and there we have the hidden meaning of Isaiah 34:10 which is virtually identical to Revelation 14:11.

We clearly see how Isaiah 34:10 means utter destruction, FOREVER and EVER.

And NOT a NEVER ENDING BURNING HELLFIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.

Now we know what Jesus said in Mathew 10:28, He was not making any contradictions, but taught that GOD will DESTROY the lost, which is why He called it the SECOND DEATH Revelation 20:14, which is why Romans 6:23 tells us: For the wages of sin is DEATH, which literally means to UTTERLY be DESTROYED and DIE, which will be a literal fulfilment.

Psalm 37:20 World English Bible

But the wicked shall perish. The enemies of Yahweh shall be like the beauty of the fields. They will vanish-- vanish like smoke.

DEATH means DEATH, and not eternal life, which now also destroys the contradictions that most of Christianity create in the false teachings of the lost having eternal life BURNING IN HELL FIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER, Revelation 14:11

John 3:36

Berean Literal Bible

The one believing in the Son has eternal life, but the one not obeying the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

Matthew 25:46

And these will go away into eternal punishment; but the righteous into eternal life."

Psalm 104:35 

World English Bible

Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. Let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, my soul. Praise Yah!

Now we know and understand the truth, we very easily see how there are no contradictions:

For the wages of sin is (DEATH) Romans 6:23, 

NOT ETERNAL LIFE IN FIRE.

Notice how Revelation 11:18 tells us how GOD will DESTROY THOSE WHO ARE DESTROYING THE EARTH:

And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and to give the reward to Your servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and to those fearing Your name, the small and the great, and to DESTROY those who are destroying the earth."

Join me again in Part 2. The true meaning of Revelation 20:10 

Revelation 20:10.

King James Bible

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Part 4. The true meaning of Matthew 25:46

And these will go away into eternal punishment; but the righteous into eternal life."

Part 5 Scriptures Proving THE UNSAVED Will Not Have ETERNAL LIFE ROASTING IN HELL FIRE FOR EVER AND EVER.

We look at the countless scriptures teaching how GOD will NOT BURN the lost FOREVER, and EVER, but how GOD will KILL and DESTROY the lost FOREVER and EVER, implying utter destruction.
