H e l l  Q u e s t i o n s

-How can I be sure I'm not one of those that 'qualify' for the fiery furnace?.Matthew 13:41,42 "The Son of man shall send forth his angels and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend and them which do iniquity. And shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

If you have love in your heart, toward Christ for what he came to do in the person of Emmanuel, and toward others, then you will be busy in works of doing kindness, exercising compassion, and possessing a heart well on its way to being as loving as God:.Philippians 2:5 "Let.this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Emmanuel." 1John 2:10 "He that loves his brother abides in the light and there is none occasion of stumbling in him."

As such, you are out of the "fiery furnace" group:.Matthew 13:38,39 "The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one. The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world and the reapers are the angels."

-It says here that God can destroy both the body and soul in hell?.Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. But rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.".Means that God can; doesn't mean He will and He won't. It means that your soul will forever be stuck in hell.(understand what and where hell really is), locked away from the spiritual level of higher consciousness unless your mind is opened making higher consciousness things important to you.

The word 'destroy' means 'to render useless or of none effect', 'to separate to ruin'. The spirit of man, which is in man and makes man what he is, physical man, can be 'destroyed' in the sense that it can be rendered by God as being unable to function and since we are gods in this sense, gods in embryo, we render our creation useless by living in the self sabotaging.ego realm instead of the higher consciousness realm of the spirit. I guess in that sense, it is dead.(1Peter 4:6; Colossians 3:3), unable to express, etc. With Christ consciousness, the higher thinking of the spirit, we are 'dead' to the ego realm:.Romans 6:2.

A definition of death is the inability to interact with one's environment.

-Psalms 9:17 says the wicked shall be turned into hell? What does hell mean?

The three words in the original Greek.(New Testament), all rendered 'hell' in the English are: hades, 'the grave' or 'unseen'; tartaroo, a more severe version of 'hades' and gehenna, which referred to a garbage dump outside the city of Jerusalem which had a continually burning fire to burn up trash. 

Re: Psalms 9:17: The word 'wicked' means 'to do wrong'.(does it apply to you?). The word 'turned' in this verse in the original Hebrew.(Old Testament).means 'returned from, but not necessarily back to the original starting point'. The word 'into' is not in the original. The word 'hell' here is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek 'hades'. 

Jonah was in 'hell' when he was in the body of the big fish:.Jonah 2:1,2

-Does not.Matthew 25:41.and.13:38-42.prove there is an everlasting hell awaiting those rejecting God?

Notice Emmanuel says "depart from me you cursed". Who are those under a curse and why

Emmanuel was saying that if you lack love and compassion, well, what are you good for, apart from your own selfishness?.Luke 9:62

As the subject shows, hell itself is not everlasting. Those rejecting God, God has not yet awakened in Him, for when He does, who's to resist?.Romans 9:18,19 "Therefore has he mercy on whom he will have mercy.....For who has resisted his will?" 

Isaiah 44:6,7 "This says the LORD the King of Israel also known as the redeemer, the LORD of hosts; I am the first and I am the last and beside me there is no God. And who, as I, call and declare it and set it in order, since I put the ancient people where they are? And the things that are coming and shall come, tell them."

Isaiah 45:17-19 "But Israel is saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation. You shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end. For this says the LORD that created the heavens, God himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited. I am the LORD and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret in a dark place of the earth. I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain. I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right."

-What about Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16:19-31? Doesn't this prove there is a hell? And, what is the "great gulf fixed" that is mentioned here?

This is a story.(an allegory).Emmanuel was telling, not a doctrine He was explaining; the theme of which is; a rich man who stood by and let a poor man suffer, a rich man who provided no help when he could easily have.

Those who are selfish will not have as good a future as even a lowly beggar, verse 22. Like many people, once they have lived their lives the way they have wanted, then they want the rest too, verse 24. And that's ok. We should also live our lives from where we presently are in our hearts and not from where we have come in the past and not from the future we worry over.

Notice here though, the rich man cried unto "father Abraham", who was already dead awaiting a resurrection. So, in the story that Emmanuel was telling, the rich man saw Abraham. The connection that Emmanuel was making was that this man named Lazarus was in the same place that the good patriarch Abraham was because of how they both were and they both were men of higher consciousness qualities that brought them to a higher level of existence than what the rich man possessed.

In the story Emmanuel must have been thinking about the religious Pharisaical types:.Luke 3:8.

The "great fixed gulf".(verse 26).means.(when one considers the context).that Emmanuel was referring to was about those who show love and those who do not, referring to those of thes ego level and those having moved from there into a higher consciousness, as in the story of the Samaritan. Many are beginning to awaken who were in spiritual blindness. Those in the ordinary low consciousness ego level with all its evils, are those locked out from higher consciousness things.

In the original there are no verse designations or chapter breaks. These were inserted.(thankfully).to make it easier to find things. 

Emmanuel carries on in Luke 17:1,2 showing it bades not well for those who neglect helping, when it is in their power to be able to. And those being that way are often overcome by their selfishness; but God loves them too. Emmanuel felt for people, even the two malefactors being crucified with him.(*). He had compassion

If this story is used to prove an ever burning hell into which the wicked go, then it negates all else in this subject here.
