1PW 2 Pet. 2:9. The wicked are not being punished in hell-fire now, but are reserved in the grave (Job 21:29-32) till the day of judgment to be punished.
2PW Mark 9:43-48. When the wicked go into hell-fire, they go there alive in bodily form with all their members, two feet, two eyes, two hands. Rev. 19:20; Matt. 5:30.
3PW Rev. 21:8. The casting of the wicked into the lake of fire is the second death; hence they will not be cast into hell-fire until they receive a second life in the second resurrection at the close of the 1,000 years of Rev 20.
4PW Matt. 13:40-42. So Jesus taught that the wicked, the tares, would not be cast into the furnace of fire till the end of the world. In Matt 25:31-41 Jesus plainly teaches that the wicked will not go into everlasting fire till the last day, when He comes and all people are separated into two great classes, one on the right hand and the other on the left, which separation will be at the close of the 1,000 years.
5PW Rev. 20:7-9. Hell, as a place of punishment, does not exist at the present time, but hell will be this earth turned into a lake of fire at the close of the 1,000 years of Rev. 20, at the great day of judgment.
6PW Zech 14:12. When the wicked are raised in the second resurrection at the end of this 1,000 years, they will come up in bodily form, and will march up to surround and capture if possible the New Jerusalem, which will then be resting on the earth. God will then rain down coals of fire to them to punish them according to their sins. This fire will not perpetuate their existence, but will devour and wipe them out of existence. Rev. 20:9.
7PW Isa. 34:9,10. In that day the dust of the earth will be turned into brimstone, the land and rivers into burning pitch. Thus the earth will be melted into a lake of fire, and when sin and sinners have been forever destroyed, God will make this molten mass into a perfect new earth. 2 Pet. 3:10,13. The fact that this lake of fire, or hell-fire, into which the wicked are cast, will be made into a sinless new earth, is positive proof that the wicked will not and cannot burn to all eternity.
8PW Jude 7. The everlasting fire into which the wicked are to be cast will be this lake of fire. This does not mean (Matt. 25:41) that the fire will burn to all eternity, but rather that the fire will burn them up everlastingly. We have an example of eternal fire in the everlasting destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
9PW Jer 17:27. To say the wicked will go into hell-fire that will never be quenched, does not mean that the fire will burn to all eternity. But as in the case of the destruction of old Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, the fire will not and cannot be put out until it has accomplished its work of destruction. 2 Chron. 36:19-21. The never-quenched fire and undying worm that Jesus mentions in Mark 9:43-48 refer to the Valley of Hinnom. The word "hell-fire' in the Greek is gehenna, which is the Grecian way of spelling Vale of Hinnom. Into this Vale of Hinnom, near Jerusalem, the bodies of dead animals were cast. On these bodies the worms preyed constantly, and fires were also kept burning constantly to burn up these bodies. Jesus took this as an illustration of what that final hell-fire, or lake of fire, will do for the wicked at the end of the 1,000 years of Rev. 20. The never-quenched fire and undying worm are symbols of utter destruction and not symbols of eternal torment.
10PW Mal. 4:1-3. The wicked will be destroyed, soul and body (Matt. 10:28), in this final lake of fire, and be reduced to ashes.
11PW John 3:16. Nobody needs to perish or go into hell-fire. All may have eternal life if they accept and obey Jesus Christ. Eze. 18:3-32.
