Hell: Eternal Aloneness!

Hell and Destruction are Never Full: So the Eyes of Man are Never Satisfied! (Pro 27:20)

People fear death because deep-deep inside, they know the blackness of darkness forever, awaits them; even among the religionists (predestination, indeed): Therefore, avoiding death for as long as they can, will represent the theme of their earthly life and the sum of their mentality. They exist in paranoia, but fear is a natural state; the way YHVH created all life-forms on Earth.

Brother Saul (of Tarsus) mentioned that to be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord (2Co 5:1-5, 6-10); to remain on Earth is to extend our separation from YHVH in the eternal Kingdom. Of course, our lifespan here is so very small that (relatively), it's not such a long wait for the Elect of YHVH, but for the rest of humanity, all that awaits them at death, is more death (Rev 2:11; 20:14-15; 21:7-8).

Consequently, they are paranoid always, and the evidence of that paranoia is open and plain to see (they do not try very hard to hide it); paranoia has become the major theme for the majority, especially here in these end-times. This is why people justify war and killing (James 4:1-5, 6-10); why people arm themselves; why they are willing to take the lives of others to preserve their own. They must exist on Earth for as long as they can.

Without the universal, unconditional, eternal Love of YHVH, ruling within them, and driving them; all they possess (all they are left with) are the same capacities witnessed in all mammals: Attachment (always mistaken for Love). Consequently, pride/ego and emotions are all they experience; they are thus brain-centric (egocentric; emotion-centric); whereas, the Elect of YHVH are Christ-centric: A radically different existence. The Elect of YHVH (alone) have the mind of Christ (1Co 2:9-12, 13-16). Demons can easily manipulate human ego.

The Elect of YHVH have already studied the Master exhaustively, and in that study we know of the contrasting differences between the Godless masses, versus the infinitesimal Elect of YHVH: We are polar opposites in many ways! Messiah Yeshua constantly said: "But I say to you!" Life may say this, or people may say that; but I say unto you, the opposite of, or the contrary to this/that. We are mammals indeed; however, YHVH created us sentient; a way to transcend that animal-man (Gen 2:7); to moult into a Love-centric being. And what was/is important to recognize, was how the devout religious people were the most Spiritually lost, out of all humanity. Here is that contrast:

Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets: I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law, until all is fulfilled. Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so; he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. For I say to you that unless your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

You have heard that it was said to the ancients, "You shall not kill" and "Whoever shall kill shall be liable to the judgment." But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be liable to the judgment. And whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be liable to the Sanhedrin; but whoever shall say, Fool! shall be liable to be thrown into the fire of hell. Therefore, if you offer your gift on the altar, and there, remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go: First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; that the opponent not deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Truly I say to you; you shall by no means come out from there until you have paid the full amount.

You have heard that it was said to the ancients: "You shall not commit adultery." But I say to you that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. And if your right eye offends you, pluck it out and throw it from you. For it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be thrown into hell. And if your right hand offends you, cut it off and throw it from you. For it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be thrown into hell. It was also said: Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a bill of divorce. But I say to you that whoever shall put away his wife, except for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery. And whoever shall marry her who is put away commits adultery.

Again, you have heard that it has been said to the ancients: "You shall not swear falsely, but you shall perform your oaths to the Lord." But I say to you, do not swear at all! Not by Heaven, because it is God's throne; not by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great king; nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your word be, Yes, yes; No, no. For whatever is more than these comes from evil.

You have heard that it was said: "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." But I say to you, do not resist evil. But whoever shall strike you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. And to him desiring to sue you, and to take away your tunic, let him have your coat also. And whoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and you shall not turn away from him who would borrow from you.

You have heard that it was said: "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy." But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same? And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax-collectors do so? Therefore be perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect! Matthew 5:17-48 (Matt 17:20; 21:21)

Ethics of Hypocrisy!

The Indwelling Holy Spirit empowers us to a life that is seemingly contrary to our nature (1Co 2:10-14; 15:44-46; Rom 8:5-7; Eph 2:1-3; 2Pe 1:2-9): Messiah Yeshua used parables and metaphor exactly to confound those who had no true motive for ultimate truth (Matt 7:6; 13:10-13). Most people seek (in Scripture) only what will validate, rationalize, or justify the lifestyle they have already decided they are going to live. This is why lifestyle sins differ so much from sins of circumstance (Pro 30:8-9): those who seek to justify themselves before men will say: Sin is sin! But this is more of a distraction than a lesson.

For example, a committed married person is situationally tempted sexually by another, and commits adultery. They are not intentionally single for the explicit purpose of perpetual fornication (or adultery if they happen upon a married person): They are married but were tempted and failed. They confess and repent; they admit to the sin and never commit it again.

However, a sin-lifestyle is to intend to live that way (e.g. a player), today and tomorrow and on into the future. Each time we read about fornication in the Messianic Scriptures, we learn that intentional singleness for the "sowing of wild oats" is nothing new.

Lifestyle (sexual) sins would include fornication/adultery, pedophilia and homosexuality; however, any lifestyle that does not glorify the holiness of YHVH would be similar. A murderous person is always willing to (and wanting to) kill, but may only be prevented from killing because they fear getting caught or fear imprisonment (the consequences). But YHVH is not mocked or fooled (Gal 6:7-8; 1Co 6:9-10) by our self-delusions, nor our personality; YHVH knows the true heart condition of humans! The act of murder is not necessary, for YHVH to know that you would murder if you knew you'd get away with it.

Of course, YHVH knows what we would do, if we were not restrained (in any way) from doing so (1Pe 3:1-4; Rev 2:23). The same is true for those dedicated to lifestyles of consumerism or materialism, or sedentary lifestyles (slothfulness), or wealth-hoarding, or money-dependency (Luke 16:13-15), or one that is as serious as murder itself: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. In other words, it's really about what is going on inside of you; your heart-mind (Soul). Anyone can fake a personality; however, lifestyle is the true measure of the man (Matt 12:31-35).

Everyone will have moments of sin; sin-acts: However, YHVH is judging what you intend to deliberately do into the future. Stumbling off the path temporarily is one thing; intending to walk another path, is another thing. Those dedicated to antiChrist lifestyles (the antiChrist's as well as the unreligious) are effectively doomed, if left unrepentant, regardless of one's religion consumption (i.e. religion-businesses).

Penitent or Penitentiary!

The punitive aspect of hell is reserved primarily for the Godless-religious: The second death (Rev 2:11; 21:8; 22:14-15) is reserved for the false religionists (Matt 23:15), and those dedicated to sin-lifestyles, especially among those dedicated to authoritarianism. Messiah Yeshua always implicated the Pharisees (and their cohorts) dangerously (John 8:42-47, 53-59), but lived and served among (or reached out to) the hopeless sinner; the sick; the poor; the rejected; the lost. Messiah Yeshua diametrically opposed religion, but built relationships; this is the key difference!

The state of non-existence (or nothingness), is that which is outside of (or void of) time, space, energy and matter: This is the fate of those who did not truly believe in the Kingdom of Heaven or an afterlife, but who otherwise lived responsively on Earth: the true Atheist will simply cease to exist, just as they believed would happen (Matt 7:1-2). Eternal separation (indeed, punishing) is reserved for those who prostituted or pimped YHVH, as well as those who lived only for the carnal life.

We, the Elect of YHVH, are each disciples of Messiah Yeshua: He is our teacher, inspiration, hero, and friend! He is our very paradigm for living! We try to mimic His lifestyle as best we can. Conversely, the Godless-religious masses are blindly enculturated, and as such, they are drones of their micro-experiences; they mimic the world that surrounds them, just as any eye-blind person is confined to the world staged for them by the sighted.

Literalism obscures Scripture: This was intentional (1Co 11:16-19). Messiah Yeshua was YHVH-in-skin and as such, He knew the future of the world; He knew about we-here-now (John 17:20-21). When employing metaphor, part of the intent was to expose the literalistic so that the Elect of YHVH could see that particular fruit-type (Matt 7:15-20). The money-loving Pharisees constantly tried to employ Scripture (often in sound-bites) as a way to justify their otherwise, antiChrist lifestyles. Hence, the evils of all organized money-taking religion-businesses.

People who use Scripture, as did the Pharisees, are the false shepherds (John 10:11-14): they adulterate Scripture (2Co 4:1-4) to avoid physical labor, and to control other humans; a literal rendering achieves that goal (and the motive behind Bibliolatry). When Messiah Yeshua discussed the pain of hell, He was employing metaphor: There will be no physical bodies cast into outer darkness.

Why Hell is Not Hot!

Hell actually has nothing at all to do with fire or flames or skin burns: Again, it's a metaphor! If a person cannot grasp the concept of metaphor or parables (Mark 4:11-13, 33-34), they will have no other option but to take letters literally. Prior to pain medication, burn patients died because of the pain alone. The metaphor was about unending non-stop suffering: In this life we suffer losses but (as the saying goes) time heals all wounds. The point of this metaphor is that in this case, time will not alleviate the suffering! In empty space, there will be no distractions to the reality of one’s true self.

Fultz is an athlete and former Marine. A self-described adrenaline junkie, he has earned more than his share of stitches, staples, and broken bones while skateboarding, mountain biking, and playing soccer and lacrosse. He is no wimp, and yet he describes the pain from his burns as savage and relentless. He hurt whether awake or asleep. The mere sensation of air hurt his burns. "I felt it every day, every minute," he says. Though he was on pain medication, with extra doses before dressing changes and physical therapy, Fultz says his pain never completely went away. (Johns Hopkins)

Fictional Hell and Demons!

The many fictional portrayals of hell, and of angels and demons, has been very wrong for a very long time. Dante's Inferno was among the first fictional portrayals of hell; it fueled the many myths that have escalated to where we are today. Even demon possession has been logically explained away as fodder by the new sciences of psychology and medicine. The sciences are not bad in themselves, but what they must provide is a tangible explanation of the (otherwise) intangible. An Atheist cannot accept incorporeal explanations of events or ideals; this I understand. But it is not my place to change anyone's mind (Matt 15:14)!

Messiah Yeshua clearly presented earthly parables to explain a Spiritual truth; we must remember that all parables are just that; they are not literal (though they do have literal application). There are certain parallels which must be deciphered, but this is only possible with The Supreme Decoder: the Indwelling Holy Spirit (John 14:15-18; 14:25-27; 15:26-27; 16:7-13). Hell is a very important topic today, just as it has been for millennia. Of course, it has been more of a stumbling block than it has of any other result. Even so, fear of going to hell will not alter the number of people going to Heaven versus the number going to Hell, by even one person either way; that number was set before the foundation of the world (Eph 1:3-6). Here is that allegory by the Master, which are a series of metaphors concerning the Kingdom of Heaven, Hell, and eternality:

He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world; the good seed are the sons of the Kingdom; but the weeds are the sons of the evil one. The enemy who sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. Therefore, as the weeds are gathered and burned in the fire, so it shall be in the end of this world. The Son of Man shall send out His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom, all things that offend, and those who do iniquity, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous shall shine out like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which when a man has found it, he hides it, and for the joy of it, goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls; who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered some of every kind; which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it shall be at the end of the world. The angels shall come out and separate the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth! Matt 13:37-50

Depart, ye cursed, to whom everlasting wrath and ruin belong, who are by your own wickedness prepared for nothing else, but to be firebrands of hell, who are the fit objects and vessels of the vengeance and fury of the Almighty, into fire. He will not send them away merely into a loathsome prison, the receptacle of the filth and rubbish of the universe, but into a furnace of fire. That must be their dwelling-place, there they must be tormented with the most racking pain and anguish. It is everlasting fire. There is eternity in the sentence, which infinitely aggravates the doom, and will make every word of it immensely more dreadful, sinking, and amazing to the souls that receive it. (Source: Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758): The Final Judgment).

As we can witness from this response perspective from Edwards, many well-meaning theologians were literalistic, but this is because they were foremost, the products of academia and indoctrination (Enculturation), and not the by-products of a radical Spiritual transformation, which would have made their former lifestyles of leisure, unpalatable to them.

Hell has been the theological weapon-of-choice for the vengeance-driven Godless-religious since day-one! The Godless-religious lust at the idea of hell being a tortuous and merciless event, because they too, lust for vengeance; they dream or imagine opportunities to hurt those who hurt them in this life. They are utterly Loveless beings and enjoy the thought of suffering enemies.

Literal Hell Versus Literary Hell!

Indeed, Hell is that one topic which turns multitudes from Christianity. Hell, as it is described from the interpretations of the Godless-religious, would be analogous to mercilessly torturing a teen-aged car thief every day for the next 70 years (or until he dies from the torture) for stealing 1 car. In fact, hell would be many times worse than that! Hell would be the complete absence of Love; it would be the summary of mercilessness! Indeed; there will be no evil on this planet, collectively, during its existence (as a planet), which could compare to such evil, as such a described hell would represent. Such a Hell would even be beyond the evil of Satan.

We must understand motive: Verily, the religionists (past and present) represent the greatest evil that will ever occur on Earth. The greatest evil possible within the human condition, will not be those such as Adolph Hitler or other culturally popularized mass-murderers: No, the greatest of evil humans will always present a Godly or righteous facade: attractive; charismatic; desirable; envied!

The forecast individual referred to as The Antichrist will be a religionist. Religion itself, is the sum manifestation of evil. Messiah Yeshua was crucified by the Godless Romans, but as directed and financed by the Godless-religious Pharisees, which Yeshua confronted at almost every opportunity.

Most of YHVH's Elect will never see The Antichrist; instead, it is the many antiChrist's (faking Christians mostly) that most of humanity has to contend with. The religionists like diversion; they like to play-up the Satan-possessed, end-time Antichrist, even though almost none of YHVH's Elect will be on Earth when Satan appears in that state, and at that time. This will not be because of any rapture, but because the end-times will be marked by a near end of those being saved, even as human populations reach their highest.

Messiah Yeshua had fellowship with the sinners, as they were tagged by the religionists of His time (the Pharisees and others). However, He criticized (or outright condemned) these religionists at almost every confrontation. This is because Messiah Yeshua was YHVH in the flesh who was confronting Satan's minions. The religionists are among the many antiChrist's warned about in the Epistles of John.

These antiChrist religionists assumed roles as Christian leaders and formed (what came to be known as) The Catholic Church Incorporated; later in time, those of the same mind (a new generation of men), regurgitated variations of Catholicism into Orthodoxy and then Protestantism: antiChrist's now rule them all! These money-dependent people are compromised in every possible way; they live a 100% antiChrist lifestyle and existence. As a distraction, they must magnify The Antichrist even though the bulk of humanity will never see this individual during their lifetime (1Jo 2:18-21; 4:2-3).

Consequently, you cannot trust them nor their interpretations of Scripture. Their goal was (and still is) to use the Scriptures, the laws of the attorney-class, and also, outright fear (such as the threat of hell), to coerce the masses to consume The Mass; that is, to participate in organized religion, pay them for these services, and thus become collaborators in this ruse, financing the religionists antiChrist lifestyles (which is foremost, a dependency upon money). I will teach you to fish and farm and garden and build, but I cannot give you the money that keeps you from those necessary endeavors.

Indeed, the church itself, was the beginning of the Apostasy, which began shortly after the Ascension (and the central motive and need for the addendum Johannine epistles). There's no such thing as a "ministry" that needs money. YHVH first provides the necessary means, and then later the vision for those means. All hands-out takers live an antiChrist existence, always. They cannot even conceptualize a Christ-centric way of life, much less become the sum totality of that lifestyle.

The Great Falling Away!

Therefore, the Elect of YHVH; the actual Body of Christ (John 10:7-11, 12-16), was dispersed on Earth in order to be protected, both from the professional religionists and from secular forces that were financed by the (mammon-empowered) church oligarchies. We see this same process occurring today, with completely secular (or Godless) federal, state and local governments, being manipulated financially by the wealth-class of today (the end-time mechanism of the capitalist Plutocracy).

The wealth-class have always used money-power to shape the culture in their favor; this process is as old as mammon-wealth itself, and why Messiah Yeshua made it clear that you either serve God or mammon (Matt 6:24), and no one does both (no, not one). Hell therefore, was a mere theological product that these religionists capitalized upon; it subsequently made them fortunes.

The very fear of hell via the wrath of god perpetually torturing them for not listening to the religionists, religiously, would push people like herds of sheep to the sheerer, into the weekly fleecing (oh, service I mean), to cut/shave that weeks sin growth from them, so that if they died that week, they'd be prepared for the whole afterlife god thing. These monetized rituals and traditions were condemned by Messiah, and then replaced by His death. To recreate them in any form (even the ritual of Communion or Eucharist) is to shame the Cross.

Sedentary Salvation!

No one will "go to Heaven" as a result of "believing in Jesus Christ" or parroting a prayer emotionally. There is no Romans Road; there's only Narrow Way! But these are the great lies of Satan, via the mouthpiece of the religion-class; making religious acceptance priority over Heavenly Kingdom entrance. What you "believe" has no meaning: Every sentient being will have beliefs; having one belief over another has no literal meaning in this life, nor in life-eternal. It is only about what/who you become, not what your brain deceives you with.

YHVH is running this earthly experiment for one reason: to transform human Souls into Heaven-worthy beings, who endure unto the end (Mat 10:22; 10:37-38; 24:12-13); that occurs well before Kingdom entrance. We become the Kingdom while on Earth (Luke 17:20-21), and then our Soul transfigures after bodily death. During our earthly time, YHVH's Elect never become superior beings; we actually go the other direction; we become small; humble; weak (John 3:30-31; 1Co 4:10; 2Co 12:9-10). Cults are often built from the ego of one human who thinks he has some gift above all others! Like-minded (or gullible) people soon follow.

The slogan What Would Jesus Do? (WWJD) attenuated into a mere product; a pop-culture parroting among the Godless-religious; a slogan to market coffee mugs, key-chains, shirts and bumper stickers. In fact, it is verily, WJDD: What Jesus Did Do! It does not matter what we think He might do in a particular situation. I already do what He did, to the extent of my personal talents, my age, location, resources, and the times we all are living in (Luke 17:26-30; 2Pe 2:1-7).

Thus, I do not need to ask that question, because we are to be the replacement for Messiah Yeshua; so too, are all humans (past-present-future) who surrender unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, die to this carnal life (die to self, ego and pride), and effectively be defibrillated back to Life, via the epoch of the Indwelling Holy Spirit. YHVH's Elect are those who are radically renewed; terminally transformed; the proverbial old-man is extinct (Rom 6:3-7; Eph 4:20-24; Gal 2:20; Col 3:8-13) and a totally new creation emerges from within (2Co 5:16-17). To be born-again is still a mystery to those who will perish (2Co 4:1-4).

In other words, the term born-again became a pet-slogan (or buzzword) media-popularized by the Godless-religious money-addicts of the modern capitalist reign; the religionists of North America and other westernized cultures infected by Americanization: the Xians of Religianity! These money-dependent consumerists are, of course, blinded to the Spiritual realm, which is YHVH's realm. They are the Matthew Seven Christians (as opposed to John 17), prophesied by Messiah Yeshua, which means they cannot see themselves as that manifestation. We are not to be mere followers; not of Popes or Pastors; the Elect of YHVH are to BE the earthly replacements of/for Messiah Yeshua (John 20:21; 1Co 12:26-27), empowered by the Indwelling Holy Spirit (Acts 15:8-9).

Wandering Stars for Whom is Reserved the Blackness of Darkness Forever!
When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to them that followed: Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. | Then said the king to the servants: Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. | And cast you, the unprofitable servant, into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt 8:10-12 | 22:13-14 | 25:30 (2Pe 2:4, 17-22; Jude 1:6, 13; Rev 21:8)

Great 'cosmic nothingness' found!
(Source: The BBC, 08/07) Astronomers have found an enormous void in space that measures nearly a billion light-years across. It is empty of both normal matter, such as galaxies and stars, and the mysterious "dark matter" that cannot be seen directly with telescopes. The "hole" is located in the direction of the Eridanus constellation and has been identified in data from a survey of the sky made at radio wavelengths. The discovery will be reported in a paper in the Astrophysical Journal. Previous sky surveys that have traced the large-scale structure of the nearby Universe have long shown, for example, how the clustering of galaxies is strung into vast filaments and sheets that are separated by great gaps. But the void discovered by a University of Minnesota team is about 1,000 times the volume of what would be expected in typical cosmic gaps. "It's hard even for astronomers to picture how big these things are," conceded Minnesota's Professor Lawrence Rudnick. "If you were to travel at the speed of light, it would take you several years to get to the nearest stars in our own Milky Way galaxy; but if you were to go to this hole and enter one side, you'd have to travel for a billion years before you would get to the other side. The void is roughly 10 billion light-years away and takes a sizable chunk out of the visible Universe in its direction".

Dark evidence!
Today, this light shines at microwave wavelengths at a frigid -270C; and observations of the CMB made by Nasa's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe show a particular "cold spot" in the direction of the newly identified void. The explanation for this may lie in the enigmatic "dark energy" that scientists know so little about but which is said to be accelerating the expansion of the Universe. Light particles passing through the void would be expected to lose a little more energy than those passing through space cluttered with matter, if dark energy is stretching the Universe apart at a faster and faster rate. Scientists refer to this as the Integrated Sachs-Wolfe Effect and a corresponding "warm spot" in the CMB associated with an area of space dominated by a supercluster of galaxies was identified some years ago. "In essence, this latest study gives us a very elegant demonstration of the existence of dark energy in a way which is very convincing; We keep getting evidence for dark energy, this component of the Universe which is so dominant, and yet we still have only a tiny glimmer of what it could be." The reason the void exists is not known. "That's going to be a challenge for people that work on the development of structure in the Universe. It's a very hot topic in the cosmology right now."

The Smell of Space!
(Source: RedOrbit.com Washington (09/09/09): NASA astronauts aboard the US space shuttle Discovery have said that the smell of space is strong, metallic and unique. "There is one smell up here that is really unique though and that is the smell, we just call it the smell of space", said NASA engineer and astronaut Gregory Chamitoff, who is on board US space shuttle Discovery. "I haven't had a chance to do a spacewalk yet, but when the other guys did and they came back in, there's this really, really strong metallic smell." For rookie astronaut Kevin Ford, Discovery's pilot, both the sounds and smells of space have surprised him. "It is like something I haven't ever smelled before, but I'll never forget it. You know how those things stick with you"! Astronaut Whitson said; "Some people call it kind of ozone-like. I wasn't sure what ozone was supposed to smell like, but it's kind of smoky and a little harsh, bitter-smelling, and it lasts variable amounts of time. I noticed that it didn't last as long in the docking compartment after we had done three space-walks out of the airlock here. But it's really interesting because it's very distinctive; I think it kind of has almost a bitter kind of smell in addition to being smoky and burned."

All His Works are Known to God from Eternity!

Of course, this science news is intriguing to ponder; it is not posted here as confirmation of what hell will feel or smell like. The Messianic Scriptures reveal that hell is not a prison or other physical construct: It is the blackness of darkness; it is nothingness; that could be a black hole or something else we know nothing about, and is referred to (generically) as The Abyss. It was also likened to Sheol (the grave), which is also black and cold, lifeless and still.

We do know, to the best of our (finite brains) understanding, that the Soul of man is eternal; since the terms "forever" or "eternal" are relative to our corporeal experience of spacetime, we can conclude that it's a very long time (knowing that time is not strictly eternal or without end; that spacetime is not immutable, but YHVH is immutable).

Also, for those who seek autonomy and freedom in this life, they will be granted such freedom, in the next life: But they won't like it! The blackness of outer darkness makes up the bulk of the universe: have at it. I'd rather be a slave in Heaven than a king in the Abyss. Freedom-hunger is the craving to do whatever one wants to do, without restraint; without rules; without accountability. Those who tout personal (physical, earthly) freedom, only display self-interest unto all with Spiritual eyes to see, for they think that physical freedom is the same as being free (1 Peter 2 / Romans 6). Brother Saul was truly free, even as he wrote to the churches, while bloodied and in a dank cold prison cell.

Only Truth Can Make Us Free!

YHVH's Elect are bond-servants; we are the slaves of His service, and will suffer in want (if need be) in the doing. The Roman Imperialists, who were subjugating and abusing the ethnic Jews, caused many back then, to despise such dominion, as anyone would. But Messiah Yeshua was teaching that this hatred for (and the potential for violence with) the Godless Roman Imperialists (politicians and their soldiers), would ultimately not help them, nor would it be useful for YHVH to draw people closer to Him, through His chosen; the Elect of YHVH (Matt 20:25-28).

We are on Earth, not for social justice, but as vessels of YHVH and mirrors of our Lord and Master, who said that we would suffer a similar fate, if/when we follow too close to Him; when we closely model His lifestyle and mindset. The world is all about capitalizing upon one another; it is all about consumerism; to look upon other humans as a potential resource; to exist in an us-against-them mentality. Conversely, Messiah Yeshua taught us (instead) to Love our enemies (Luke 23:32-37), and the epistles remind us of this "converse reality" reserved for the Elect of YHVH. Messiah said these things to His disciples (past, present, and future):

Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these, My brothers, you have done it to Me. If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever desires to lose his life for My sake shall find it. Therefore if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

Those who are born without eyesight, will maturate and know of nothing but darkness. Thus, they are not bothered by it, because it is all they have ever known (they acclimate to it). We, who have eyesight, would be horrified by a diagnosis of eye blindness, but this is because we would go from sight and vision, to total darkness. This same analogy is true with Spiritual blindness (more so even): Those who have never had Spiritual light, grow to be comfortable in that darkness (they acclimate to it).

It seems that the older people get, the more content they become in the dark. They can learn about sightedness, but it has little meaning to them, because they have no images to compare. However, those who could once see, will know what they will be missing. The fruit of the Spirit is Love (YHVH's Love): From that, we see contentment and peace, duty and dedication, commitment, truce-keepers, simple-living, and most certainly, wisdom (intellect).

Educated but Godless people think religions (and the religious) are simpletons: Indeed! First, a good scientist seeks evidence to support postulations; why not do this with those who profess to be Christians? Why accept a person's professions of "faith in Jesus" even when they do not live like Him? Because these scientists are the gullible simpletons: A person can just go to a Christian-labeled church, bark the bible verse, and say "Lord, Lord", and the Godless see them as Christian.

But this is not evidence, this is self-belief. Evidence is tangible and measurable, and so, those who are the Elect of YHVH are Christ-centric; to live, act, believe, speak and think like Messiah Yeshua {My sheep know My voice, and they follow Me}. But know this; intelligence is allowed to the Godless for one very important reason; to devalue, attenuate and/or dilute the truth of Messiah Yeshua. Those who are not YHVH's Elect are also (and necessarily) manifest.

This means that there will be self-professing Christians who will know much truth, but with a subtle amalgam of distortion and lies; leaven (see: Matt 13, 16; 1 Corinthians 5). The new age (modern day) Gnostics are much the same way: They have a good grasp of certain aspects of Faith that even the Orthodoxy did/does not get (i.e. Indwelling enlightenment leading to wisdom and intellect), and yet, many of them deny the virgin birth and the physical death and bodily resurrection of Messiah Yeshua.

Other religions operate likewise, redefining Messiah Yeshua to that of a mere mortal that was wise; to "un-God" Him! They attempt to intellectualize what occurred during the earthly life of Messiah Yeshua, even though they can see the vast intellect and the abilities of YHVH, via the creation of all things (time/space, the universe, complex life-forms, etc.). They cannot think YHVH capable of simple things like raising Messiah from the dead, or a virgin birth: Why? Because they are simpletons; educated idiots.

In fact, we serve YHVH only through other humans: Period. YHVH is silent in Heaven until His return; in the meantime, those transformed by the Indwelling Holy Spirit are, in effect, YHVH on Earth. No human serves YHVH, except in the service of mortal humans in our midst (Matt 25): Those who think they are serving YHVH in any other way will have an eternity alone to ponder this error: For those who an ear, let him hear.

For most, they spend their earthly life seeking and consuming the many temptations of the eye: So the eyes of man are never satisfied. The masses are addicted to everything from shopping to sex; the eye hungers for more and ever-more. The consumer drone is robotic in the pursuit of materialism and flesh-satiation: The entire social-structure is built around this lifestyle. Messiah Yeshua said that the end-times will be like it was in the days of Noah: With very rare exception, the entire human race will be lost; dedicated to their walk on Broadway.

Hell: Insanity to the Satanic Degree!

The sheer horror of reliving the sum of your own earthly life, over and over, repeated countless billions times, will be that utter madness that will cause the metaphorical wailing and gnashing off teeth; a metaphor that signifies the unending, unavoidable, unchanging, relentless horror that will be, only the sum and substance of you, forever remembering all the multi-fold compromises made for money and/or earthly power.

There will be no hell hotel, created by a god to mercilessly torture forever, those who are not consumers of Christendom: That very definition comes right out of the mouth of Satan, via those who unwittingly serve Satan so devoutly (Matt 16:22-23); primarily religious professionals; the Pharisaic of every generation and location. The cognitive dissonance that (left unchanged) creates the insanity of the religious fanatic, is the same dissonance that will infect the secular masses as well; only the mechanisms differ. Wealth and power drive all men to insanity, given enough time.

They (the Godless and the Godless-religious) all share in their collective lifestyles of planetary destruction; a collective rage against a peaceful and simple life, and for modern humans, the car cult (as just one example) representing perhaps the single greatest individual act (or lifestyle choice) of environmental devastation possible, for one person to achieve. There is no Holy Spirit conquered, Love-driven individual on Earth, participating in the car cult. One must be blindly enculturated, and shaped by Loveless indifference for years, to even consider such a potent lifestyle (or witness) compromise. Such blind enculturation is why Amish people tend to shun much of modernity.

Neither the Godless nor the Godless-religious, will see any of this, during their earth-time; however, they will indeed be haunted by it for millennia, somewhere between their five hundredth to their five millionth year, floating aimlessly and freely in the blackness of darkness: Everything they learn or experience on Earth, but oppose for pride-centric reasons, will indeed become the sum totality of their thoughts. It is easy to deny YHVH-truth during this life (you are reading some of it now), but billions of years uninterrupted and undistracted, with nothing but the sum reality of YHVH, countered by how you lived during your first few (2 to 9) decades of existence, will be the sum hell of you: You alone represent the hellishness of an eternity apart from Love-Personified: Messiah!

Scripture's Hell versus Dante's Inferno!

Hell is no more understood than is Heaven, by those without an eye/ear, as Messiah Yeshua put it. (Without an ear was a Soulful deafness; a blindness or darkness here on earth, which was/is the lack of conscientiousness, not the lack of eyesight). To say that YHVH has anything at all to do with hell is to proclaim that YHVH is evil beyond even Satan. We must be aware of the fact that the bulk of humans throughout all of time (though, more so now) are what I describe as the Godless-religious; they may have been (or will be) involved in religion-businesses, defined by its outward traditions, or just aspire to certain creation beliefs.

However, they never surrendered unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, died to this life, and was radically, profoundly and permanently transformed by the subsequent, Indwelling Holy Spirit. They were/are, in effect, Matthew Seven Christians; religious, but untransformed. They know about the God-Man (Jesus), from their enculturation, but they never died to this life, and allowed to be born-again (or, brought back to Life) by the Indwelling Holy Spirit.

Their pride is not destroyed utterly; their earthly dreams are not shattered into dust; their ego is not decimated beyond recognition: All those things are what keep us humans, separated from YHVH, both now and forever. Pride is more powerful than YHVH! The masses never surrender this life, for The Great Exchange; instead, they try to manipulate god/gods to make this life better for them; they are earthly minded (Rom 8:5-10).

Consequently, they read Scripture and assess what was written, from the filters of their ethnocentrism, because they don't harbor the Author of Scripture, who guides personal understanding, first by enlightening Scripture. The same Holy Spirit that inspired the scribes of Scripture must also inspire you in order for you to become Scripture (not merely see the words with your brain).

Otherwise, the bible becomes yet another earthly thing to rally around; to take sides against other humans; a source of competitivism and adversarialism (i.e. Bibliolatry). Religious competitivism can be witnessed in denominations, or splits, wherein, one individual or group does not agree with the set of rules imposed by another. Spiritually blinded (Matt 15:13-14), the sheeple must follow a human leader; one who is just as Spiritually blind, but is probably charismatic and/or handsome and/or rich. All Saved people hear only One voice (John 10).

The carnal hominid is not Saved until he/she dies completely: total and unconditional surrender. Few humans do that; even while Messiah Yeshua walked this planet, few did it. Now that we're in the end-times, only a micro-fraction of the human race have died to this life, and been raised Spiritually and are living Christ-centric. For the vast majority of humans, religion is something you believe in, but not die for, and this is why Messiah Yeshua revealed this to His Disciples in the Gospels. The wealthy Jewish ruler said that he had kept the law of Moses since boyhood; Messiah Yeshua did not call him a liar, but what He did astonished His Disciples.

You shall know them by their fruits!
And a certain ruler asked him, saying: Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him: Why do you call me good? None is good, save one, that is, God. You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not bear false witness. Honor your father and your mother. And He said: All these have I kept from my youth up. Now when Jesus heard these things, He said unto him: Yet you lack one thing: sell all that you have and distribute unto the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven: and come, follow Me! And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, He said: How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God. For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. And they that heard it said: Who then can be saved? And He said: The things, which are impossible with men, are possible with God. Luke 18:18-27 (Matt 7:13-17, 18-23)

The ruler was dedicated to being a "somebody" in the here and now; he was more concerned with what others thought of him than what YHVH thought. He was more interested in wealth, power and easy living now, than he was in unconditional surrender, in order to be free from the trappings of this world; in order to follow Messiah Yeshua. His sorrow was logical, once you have the wealth.

Indeed, what this is saying is true today; those who are wealthy will never see the Kingdom of Heaven, but there are multitudes who want to keep the wealth, the riches, the power and the reputations, and still go to Heaven in the end. What do these kind do? Some go to church, and give some of that ill-gotten gain (from a life of time-for-money mammon service) just to hear that they are Spiritually OK; that they will go to Heaven as a wealthy person, because after all; it's not what you have, but what you believe, right?

The Hell Of Self!

These lies are so obvious, once you can see; but you see, that's why there will be wailing and gnashing; that is why hell is a condition of torment; a state of existence; the never-ending rerun of your own life is what will create the hellishness of eternal darkness in empty space, forever separated from Love.

Study the math of the Messiah, because (Matthew Seven) Christians number in the billions today. These Xians of Religianity; the Godless-religious are fully indoctrinated by the world; they are fully invested in the world, but because there are church-businesses in that world, owned by religionists selling the "Heaven's for anyone with a self-belief" propaganda, the Scripture is fulfilled, ironically, yet just as it has to be.

Church-businesses are Satan’s replacement to a lifestyle of communal accountability and daily dying. In other words, you can spend an hour at the business during its operating hours, pay a tithe, sing a ditty or two, endure a monologue, say how-you-do to a few strangers, associates and acquaintances, and then quickly crawl back into your otherwise antiChrist existence for the remaining 167 hours, before repeat.

We are not called to a blind followship; YHVH wants us to think for ourselves because, after all, we will be responsible for ourselves; solely for our Soul. No one will stand before YHVH on Judgment Day, and then say we were just following orders. We will not be excused for blaming someone else for our actions (even inaction). No other person, government, or any other life-form, will serve to justify our actions; you (and you alone) will be 100% liable for those actions. This is why we are not to be followers of men, but only of YHVH, who gave us a brain and expects us to use it.

To teach a child to war, for example, is among the greatest acts of evil, possible within the human condition (Matt 18:1-7). Hell will be aflame with the massive and terrifying grief that warmongers incite. But following those who normalize war, such as a socially acceptable military academy, will not be an acceptable justification by YHVH. The Messianic Scriptures are clear; the bulk of the adult human race will go to hell, and if you follow them, you will too.

Hell is not a place: To float in the extreme abyss of empty space would mean the sheer absence of everything; utter nothingness! It is an eternity in a state of pure consciousness, but being imprisoned by and in that consciousness, wherein the course of one's corporeal existence will be replayed, in real time, over and again, eternally. The wailing and gnashing of teeth is the symbolic representation of one's response to the sum of their own selfish self-serving existence.

YHVH will impart all knowledge to all entities upon the relinquishing of the corporeal shell, this earthen vessel, so that we each will see the sufferings of every human existing in our earthly time-line, and within the realm of our influence. You will see you, from everyone else's point of view, which you came into contact with during your earth-time.

The Torment Hotel!

The hell of it all, is not a place, but a condition, for hell is not a destiny, but a result; Hellishness! Those without Spiritual eyes and ears, believe that YHVH is somehow the creator and sustainer of a place called Hell: "The Torment Hotel". This mindset (the result of anthropomorphizing) lends proof to the fact that people go into psychological denial as a means of deceiving themselves, and then, they go about collecting others who will believe the very lies they do. This fact manifests collectively as Christendom.

YHVH is not a torturer; YHVH will not be tormenting the consciousness; the hellishness of suffering (the proverbial wailing and gnashing of teeth) is not of YHVH's doing, but of the human who will be experiencing it. When humans get to look at every second of their earthly life; every thought; every action; every inaction, and do so in the knowledge of what YHVH had prepared for them, they will wail bitterly, inwardly. It will be tormenting to spend eternity without a body; without a planet; without a home; without Love (YHVH is Love).

The consequence of this existence? Hellishness; darkness; coldness; aloneness; weeping and wailing; bitterness; vengeance; anger. In outer space, there is no sound, it is bitterly cold; space is expansive beyond comprehension; it has always existed and it always will. There is no created place called hell: Hell is the complete, utter, total absence of everything created; the eternal Abyss (the extremes of extreme outer darkness), way-way beyond all star-matter, and at distances we yet have words for.

The Abyss is empty, void, burning cold, pitch black, still, silent, lifeless and utterly featureless. A thousand big bangs could go off at once and you would never see a pip of light for even a second, forever; that's far out! It is total freedom, and those there will curse the very notion of it; there shall be wailing and weeping and gnashing.

YHVH will grant the freedoms that humans (while on Earth) demanded for themselves. The Messianic Scriptures teach the Elect of YHVH, to remain as we are; not to climb the ladders of the worldly; not to seek carnal lifestyles. Those carnal lifestyles fair better when we have the freedom to do as we will. But few humans are truly free; they are prisoners of their own corporeal cocoon; their earthly shell; their blind enculturation; they are addicts; obsessive/compulsive; they are animal-like and seek freedom only to live this way without judgment.

In the end, YHVH will place the human Soul (consciousness) into the Abyss, where it/they will be free to roam the expanse, forever: YHVH will simply park incorporeal conscious Souls (who wanted nothing to do with YHVH) into the blackness of darkness, forever. All suffering will be the sum of that consciousness, with no more interruptions here on Earth, nor from YHVH; freedom hunger will be honored. Conversely, I prefer to be a bondservant of my Master, and my life is not my own to do with as I please.

Protagonist of Your Own Horror Story!

Eternal aloneness will be like being burned from head to toe, and the gnashing of teeth as the burn victim has to endure the unending pain; the suffering in the spatial Abyss, will be the consequences of personal memories, replayed in one's own consciousness, forever, non-stop: no drugs, no sleep, no food, no entertainment, no materialistic diversions, no denial, no social or political posturing. Hell is simply you, with all the contents of your own life; your own thoughts, you own actions (and inaction), coupled with an awareness of what Life was really all about, as YHVH will reveal in the end (1Co 13:12).

Then, with all that knowledge to ponder, every second, non-stop, for countless millennia, alone in the cold darkness of space. You had better hope for the catholic version; purgatory. It will take that long for many to swallow that humble pie. Most will just curse God forever and ever. You will either "get it" while here on Earth, or never, no matter what YHVH did or could do. It's all about volition and surrender, humility and simplicity (Luke 16:19-24, 25-31)

The most fundamental way to exploit people is to keep them in their own ignorance, even promoting it within them. This is what the Pharisees did. They recognized how linear people are in their thinking: If a person thinks that YHVH is limited to time/space/matter as they are, then the image and the acts of YHVH can be anthropomorphic. Because Messiah Yeshua goes to build a heavenly mansion, it must stand to reason that hell is also a constructed place. But this simpleton reasoning and thus illogical.

Hell is the resulting condition experienced by all who reject Messiah Yeshua as YHVH, and never transformed by the Indwelling Holy Spirit, to live righteously in the here and now; I.E: it is not just terminological, it is lifestyle. The fruit-evidence of a transformed life, is a transformed life. If church and religion and self-beliefs, are all a person has added to their otherwise carnal existence, they have the most horrifying event awaiting them (Matthew Seven). The eternal (outer) darkness will be nothing more than an extension of one's (inner) Spiritual darkness; they are synonymous.

The Innocence of Evil!

We humans often point to other humans like Hitler to be the encapsulation of evil. We create our own levels of evil; of evil people, like the murderers and the child molesters, versus the petty thief or the adulterer. We want to magnify one kind of evil and sin, in order to attenuate our own. But evil is most often benign in appearance: Evil never looks evil. It always takes on a beautiful appearance. Satan was the most beautiful and talented of all the angels; he was the biggest star in the heavens.

Evil is not what Hollywood has made it out to be; indeed, Hellywood is the domain of Satan (among many others), and has been very successful in misleading humans about what evil looks like. But without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, the human is in darkness, and therefore, cannot see at all. Therefore, the person in darkness must rely on what they're feed. It is like a person born blind (physically); they only know pitch-darkness, and rely on the seeing, to know their world. Only the Indwelling Holy Spirit can illuminate our world.

This is why hell is not a place that YHVH built, to house the seriously evil. There are no levels of evil, there is just evil. How evil manifests can be measured by its results; its consequences; by how awful it appears. But sin is sin; evil is evil. Hell is a state of existence, not a place.

When we don't have the God of man, we make gods out of men! When we are Not dominated by the Indwelling Holy Spirit, we are then, dominated by other spirits. YHVH's protection upon us Spiritually, occurs once we surrender unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, die to our past life, and begin our discipleship with Him, anew.

Without that Indwelling Holy Spirit producing holy fruit in our lifestyles, the Godless-religious rely on the same barometers as do the worldly; experience (the length of time one has been calling self Christian); religious investment (church attendance; tithes; bible translation, etc.): In short, to measure one's self as a reflection of one's time/culture; conversely, YHVH measures us against the very paradigm of corporeality, Messiah Yeshua, who set the daily-living example for us all.

What does it mean, to say that you believe in God? What does it say? When a person (partaking in cultural Christianity) "accepts Jesus", what does this really mean? It is an easy thing to say words; to hear ourselves say them, and then assume as true because of the word spoken. The infinitesimal Elect of YHVH; we view modernity through the filter of Scripture; we do not view Scripture through the filter modernity (through the lens of the worldly).

This is why the cults promote the word of God as if it has power, in and of itself: It does not! Messiah Yeshua was YHVH-on-Earth; I am not a god, and you are not a god. We are transformed radically and measurably by the Indwelling (of the) Holy Spirit, and that measurement is made here and now: the tree is known by the fruit it bears! If your life is not an imitation of Messiah Yeshua, then you have a self-belief; a self-belief is not Faith.

Lifestyle Is The Mirror Of The Soul!

A transformed Soul produces actions and inactions; one's human-to-human relationships and lifestyle, represents the bulk of that measurement. Hell is to separate those who, via their actions and inactions in this life, demonstrate no genuine transformation in the here and now, from those who do. Once you get even near to the Cross (even before you are actually Saved), you will begin to recognize that you will live and die, with nothing whatsoever; that everything is the property of YHVH (time-space-matter). You will live and die, flat-broke, and all that YHVH allowed you to be a steward over, was never yours at all (Rev 3:13-19).

Humans will be able to experience every pain, every heartache, every single emotion and physical suffering, of every other human which existed during their corporeality. They will then get to witness their own existence; that which was spent on the filling if their belly (Rom 16:17-19; Phl 3:17-21), while others suffered (and even died) as a result of poverty or other causes. Who cares if you work a job and some of that money goes to feed the lazy person. Do you Love that person as your Master? Or do you use their laziness to justify your selfishness? Do you not know that all you have, you have only because YHVH allowed it to begin with?

They will then come to realize what this life represented: It represents the opportunity to take that which was given each of us (whatever hand we were dealt), and then, what we volition to do with it. We either shared what we had so that another would not go without: Or, we ignored the sufferings of others and became a glutton with the excesses that YHVH allowed us (Luke 13:18-24; 13:25-30).

Remember this fact: everything is YHVH's: Everything! Your very existence; your brain and body; all. Eternal darkness will be the time you will need to recognize this reality. Your earthly life will be defined by claiming an ownership to that which is the personal property of YHVH alone, and that reality will make you weep and wail forever.

To think of anything are yours, only reveals to YHVH and the universe, your primal, base-level of Godlessness. YHVH will distribute to certain humans, more than needed to exist, just to test us. Therefore, the measure of our Soul is not the result of self-belief, but instead, the result of our acts of compassion in the volitional sharing of our resources with those who have little. This is the result or fruit of a transformed life; to exit the carnal (the animal existence), to be reborn into the Spiritual; to live the Divine; to die with honor.

To be born again is just that, whatever life was prior to the Indwelling Holy Spirit (entering into a willfully emptied vessel; the human Soul), is now a totally different life: The evidence of that is profound; overwhelming; radical. Or; you have simply cleaned the outside of your container (Matt 23:25-28), but are still full of self, and that self is still self-serving, only now it has a cloak of religion that has you looking like the rich young ruler.

Economic equality is but the infancy of being born again, for in time, that condition will lead those called out ones into a life of unknown glory, for the self will be gone: replaced by a new vessel meat for the Master's use, and that use will always be the service to the suffering in our midst (Matt 25:41-46), and to fight with the weapon of Love, to create equality in all things amongst the Elect of YHVH. I look for the loss of what's called ambition, when referring to the gains of this world.

People who have the dreams; the desire to purchase a certain thing, or who, in any way, shows entrapment to this world; this is fruit. We the Indwelled, are only passing through; we pack light; today is a good day to die; to be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord. The Indwelled wish to be nowhere else: ever. This life, therefore, is just something to endure until we are finally face-to-face with our Lord. It is not a death wish, quite the opposite, for Life is in Him.

Those who see this life as the only life; that is, those with no faith, will demonstrate that reality, in how they navigate this life; (we of the Indwelling can pick up on that right away). The Godless-religious are dedicated to making this life the best it can be, while we/those of the Indwelling live this life for Life-Eternal; therefore, the raw truth is always preferred over deceptions, omissions and emotion-pandering, indicative of the Godless-religious. As for the Godless-religious, the bottom line is this: They're going to church, but they're not going to Heaven.

Hell Is Not Punishment: Separation Is To Protect The Redeemed!

Scripture describes hell as a place of torment, and with a penal intent, but the assumption is that YHVH somehow creates or generates the torment. Art often set the stage (the mindset) for what hell will be. But today, we, the Elect of YHVH, understand hell as just that great chasm; the expanse of the universe; to keep YHVH's Elect, separated from the FGL's (the Faithless; Godless; Loveless): These people have demonstrated, to the watching universe, of their personal dedications to relational abandonment, self-interest, anomie (and so on), for and unto all YHVH's creation; especially the Elect of YHVH.

These FGL's mindlessly consumed and chased after their own egoistic quests, and did not care, even a dot, about YHVH's creation, the home YHVH made with His own hands, equally for all humanity. To add evermore evil onto their Lovelessness, they also used and abused the humans that Messiah Yeshua suffered and died for. They hungered for ownership, not stewardship; they were consumed with tendering their bodies, not their Souls. They enable evil without ceasing.

They put the self upon the pedestals of life, and look down upon the rest of YHVH's creation with contempt or indifference. YHVH has no choice but to corral the Faithless-Godless-Loveless together, to protect those of us who Love (as He Loves us). Setting the Love of YHVH to the side for a moment: If you love your own child to the depth that the average Zoo primate loves their offspring; with just that microscopic dot of love, you would not allow your children to attend a daycare staffed only with child molesters, right? YHVH, who Loves us a quintillion times more than a primate, will likewise, keep His Elect from the possibility of rape from the FGL's among us, as well as their prince and master, Satan.

The reason why hell (as a topic) is rarely talked about in Scripture is because few ever thought of the afterlife in geographic terms. Hell, as a word, is not even written about in the Tanakh (read Olam Ha-Ba: The Afterlife). The noun for location is the position of a particular point on the surface of the Earth and the noun for place is an area having unique physical and human characteristics. Therefore, the word hell cannot even be a noun: Hence, the "location" of where the hellishness of reliving one's Faithless-Godless-Loveless corporeal existence forever, will occur, has always existed and always will; the lifeless vacuum of empty space.

How demons affect and infect humans is rather simple once you see/hear them (Matt 13:9-15, 16-17; Mark 4:13): They use temptation almost exclusively (study the Temptation of Christ for the patterns): And in these (end of) days, money itself is the main weapon of Satan upon all humanity. Anyone who tries to make money seem innocent; that is a tell. The first thing to (always) look for is self-justification: the responses, the word-choices (and language in general), as the natural response to hearing or reading truth; this is what stands out the most. Messiah Yeshua gave us (His past/present/future disciples) the tools, via His words-of-life; short sentences with huge and eternal meanings: E.g:

You Cannot Serve YHVH & Mammon!

No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other: You cannot serve God and mammon! And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things, and they derided Him. But He said unto them: You are they which justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts: For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (Luke 16:13-15; 10:23-29)

Money and power, ego and fame, are what is highly esteemed among men; and getting worse here in these end-times. The idea of serving a master is simple; it is whatever you spend your time and energy upon. For example, whenever one of the disciples of Messiah talk/write about money as the root of all evil, those who are addicted to and/or fully dependent upon money, must/will automatically justify it or rationalize it away.

Among those who have read the First Epistle of Paul to Timothy (1Ti 6:6-9) and who then proclaim to be Christians; their cognitive dissonance soon becomes obvious. Like the Pharisees that they truly resemble, they must reply with: It's the love of money! In other words, what they see is the edited version that Satan places within them. They do not read Scripture to be radically changed; they read into it, to justify remaining the same.

This is the self-justification that the Elect of YHVH (the Spiritually enlightened) see/hear most prominently. The mind of Messiah (1Co 2:11-16) is radically different than the minds of men. In Spiritual blindness, those who read biblical words, while in Spiritual darkness, must therefore get their meaning from other humans (1Jo 2:18-21): Church-professionals like to monetize YHVH in this very academic endeavor (which is the sum of evil).

People actually believe that there is eternally virtuous fellowship and worship, happening inside church-businesses, and this reality alone, teaches us how Spiritually blinded they are (John 4:13-18, 19-24). Satan is the proprietor of all church-businesses (everywhere and at all times), and the head of all religions, as well as the source of/for all the gods of men (everywhere and at all times).

Celestial Schoolroom?

Now, I personally believe that it's possible (though rare) for a human being to live/die, stand before YHVH in Judgment, and be shrouded (for a few seconds of time) in the totality of YHVH; enveloped by/in unconditional, eternal Love, and then, as they are placed into the abyss of nothingness where they will remain distraction-free, they could learn about, and come to know YHVH, as I know YHVH right now. But they will have to float in utter darkness for a million years, to gather the same data that God-in-you could teach you, here on Earth, in a mere decade or so.

This is because they are consumed with the flesh and the physical, and this time-out will be necessary to teach them what and who YHVH is. In other words, they could not come to know YHVH, while distracted on this planet, if they were on it for thousands of years. What a person could potentially learn in a few decades here on earth, will instead, take them millions of years (to learn alone) in the abyss; the void of space.

When the Holy Spirit of YHVH comes into you and yokes with your Spirit/Soul, you do not just learn about YHVH, you become One with Him, from that day, and forward throughout all of time. YHVH revealed the sum of Self, to the extent that the human brain can reach cognitively, to all (of us) who have surrendered unconditionally to Him.

YHVH wants us, while still on this Earth, to be in the same state of being, as those who will be in the abyss; dead to this world, and indeed gazillion miles from it. Once we, in effect, die, and are done here, YHVH can then take His abode with us (Soul-to-Soul) while we are still corporeal, and begin an eternal relationship with us mortals, from mortality into immortality.

The Purgatory Pathology!

Herein, hell could be thought of as a "time-out": YHVH will park all (unconverted and non-Indwelled) eternal souls into the vastness of the spatial abyss for a million millennia, to give the hardened a million millennia to ponder it all. Most will never get, but some may (at some point) in this "time-out" period. The catholics call it purgatory, but I do not think they understand the full brunt of what that represents, in time.

When we think in time-terms, forever is an appropriate word. We finite little beings will often use euphemisms like: It seemed like an eternity! ~ It took forever! When in fact, we are only on Earth for a blink-of-time; be it a year or a century, either one are mere seconds when compared to God-time (or geologic time as the earth sciences call it).

Nonetheless, if a person must spend a million millennia, uninterrupted, floating in the spatial Abyss, so that they may understand, then so be it. My recommendation (of course) is to learn it, in a few years or decades, via the Indwelling Holy Spirit, while you're still here on Earth. But this is what we do know: Messiah Yeshua, during His time of bodily death from crucifixion, descended into Sheol/Hades (Matt 12; Mark 8 & 14; Luke 16; John 2; Eph 4) to minister to those already there; those who doomed themselves even before Messiah Yeshua existed as Saviour.

This teaches us the mercy and long-suffering that YHVH has for His (otherwise) hell-bent creation. I believe YHVH will repeat this, as many times as is effectual, to reach those "who know not, what they do." But we have no details, we only have the unconditional Love and compassion of YHVH (as revealed in Scripture) to guide our understanding.

But, all good things must end, and so, in that same theme, I believe YHVH will give living beings an exhaustive amount of opportunities to bend the proverbial knee, and then, once it is clear they are never going to, they will expire; their Soul and their consciousness will end, at some point-in-time.

Does the Punishment Fit the Crime?

This has been the hell debate ever since the idea of hell as punishment, was passed about in pop-culture. Does a Godless jerk (who, for 8 or 9 decades on Earth) deserve a million millennia being tossed about in the fire pit and raked over coals, as a just solution to sin? In my own short time here, I see stupidity, more than malice, to be the reason why so many miss out on YHVH's true blessings.

The Godless-religious are involved in religion, but in so doing, they're tricked by the religionists (just as I once was) and never come to actually know YHVH at all. I was fortunate, for YHVH answered my prayers to come to know Him truly; intrinsically; intimately: And it hurt. Man did it hurt. Sometimes it still does, and I feel just like my Biblical namesake, in that, I ask YHVH to remove the pain, but He does not.

But I understand why. We mortals have physical brains, and that brain is connected to our flesh, and that flesh wants to drive. The reason why weekly fasting was instituted by YHVH was so that we could be reminded constantly, that there are those out there, who hunger: Our mercy for them is forged in our own hunger. This is how we are; it is how we are made.

We, the Elect of YHVH, respond with grief and sorrow, when people kill or abuse and exploit one another, knowing that there go I but by the grace of YHVH. We know that these people are being manipulated by Satan's demon crew, and so we Love our enemies (Matt 5:43-48). The Godless and the Godless-religious, actually need enemies; they thrive on fear and war and competitivism and adversarialism; us-against-them-ism is necessary to maintain a victim status: They need bad guys to vindicate self as the good guys (Rom 3:10-12); therein, entire nations thrive on this warped paradigm.

Saul asked YHVH to heal him just as YHVH used Saul to heal others. But the answer to that prayer was: "NO! Continue to suffer and then die; My grace is all you get". Therefore, if we cannot learn the lessons of life-eternal, here in life-temporal, then more time or better conditions will not yield a different outcome. Or will it? That's the paradox of purgatory. (See: Purgatory and Is Purgatory in the Bible? from Catholic.com, and Dante's Purgatorio from UT Austin)

The Few; The Humbled; The Redeemed!

We live in a time/culture where pride is promoted and protected, not exposed and crushed. Pride is anti-humility; it is that precursor to the fall; to destruction. Pride is not self-assurance; it's really not a personality trait: Pride has more to do with character, and that translates into actions and inactions. A humble person can be aware of their own humility; even claiming to be humble. Pride is the evil side of volition; pride is our superpower. Suffice it to say, YHVH hates it and hell exists because of it (Mark 7:21-22; Isa 57:15; Pro 16:18).

The hellbent (and thus the hellbound) are pride-driven; they cannot confess being wrong, for this would be a sign of weakness; it might force change; consequently, they cannot repent: they remain in a perpetual state of anti-repentance. Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44), the master of manipulation, and the artist of self-justification.

Pride-conquered humans are stubborn; often bound to increasingly perverse (even demonic) versions of heroism; patriotism; loyalty; nobility: Satan is all about agitating the primal/carnal masses with us-against-them-ism! Once a pride-conquered individual has made a decision, they stick to that decision, come (that's right) hell or high water.

The hellbound are doomed, exactly because they cannot reach a state of humility; they remain in a state of anti-humility, which is one of the fruit-evidences of the antiChrist lifestyle. The pride-driven are passionate about power; about barking commandments; about lording authority over other people. The power-monger (churched or not) hungers to thrust any amount of authority given them, upon those they have power over. Brother Saul was never healed for this very reason; nevertheless, Pauline Christianity thrives within the organized religion-businesses theological productions.

Not one Earth-born human Soul will be cast into outer darkness because of human sin: All sin that will ever occur on Earth, by all humanity, was already atoned for, on the Cross of Messiah. Sin is the weapon used by authoritarian religionists to lord the power of shame over their sheeple. The reason why the bulk of the accountable adult human race, will be cast into outer darkness (and there suffering hellishly), is only about pride, which is the eternal doom of the masses on the superhighway of Broadway (Matt 7:13-14, 22-23; Luke 13:24-28). Narrow Way is a very small sidewalk, where only one per multiple-million Souls will traverse.

Wide Is The Path: Broadway To The Abyss!

Without actual repentance, there remains only guilt-shame-condemnation (Rom 8:1-5). Repentance is the ability to confess being wrong, or of wrongdoing: Conviction! Unfortunately, the human ego is often too powerful for this to occur. People might confess some things, but they often do this as a diversion in the hiding of even larger issues, which they will not openly confess. Guilt, of course, is crippling; it causes what has been tagged as depression, which YHVH allows to get humans to bend the proverbial knee unto Him.

The addict refuses to believe there is an addiction, and instead, justifies it and rationalizes it away. There is no greater witness to this process, than with money; mammon! If you need money to survive, you are an addict and you will justify it. Without confession, there can be no repentance; no turning away, and thus, compromise and guilt is all that remains.

Witnessing the unwavering commitment to going to hell, which most people display openly and daily, astonishes me still: It is the predestination paradigm! I noticed long ago, a certain dedication to a hell-bound eternal fate that so many people were (and still are) focused upon, and it took this witness (this observation) for me to fully appreciate the words of Messiah Yeshua, as He describes the loyalty to Satan (via his servants) that even rivals the loyalty to YHVH by His earthly disciples (Luke 16:8-13, 14-15).

Again: all sin acts, by all of humanity, for all of time, have already been paid for, by Messiah Yeshua, YHVH-in-skin, bloodshed on the Cross; the Lamb of sacrifice has atoned for them all. No one will go to hell for sin; no, not one. And yet, the bulk of humanity are defined as the masses on Broadway, compared to the very few on Narrow Way: The Matthew Seven Christians versus the Elect of YHVH; the disciples of Messiah.

Again, hell is not a jail for sinners, it is a separation (a protection) to keep the unrepentant indifferent, from being (or ever becoming) a danger to the children of our Heavenly Father: the Elect of YHVH. It is pride alone that prevents the masses from surrendering unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua. Instead, some merely add weekend religion as addendum to their (otherwise) daily antiChrist lifestyle and existence, rife with fear and paranoia, killing and death, peaceless destruction and planetary ruination.

The Power of Pride!

The greatest power in the universe, is not YHVH; it is human pride! Pride is the outcome of free will; the by-product of volition; indeed, being created in the likeness of YHVH. The prideful are no different than murderers; indeed, they are murders, in an indirect way. Those who are guilty of one sin are guilty of all; this is true: But I mean; when pride dominates the human heart, the lifestyles, decisions, actions and inactions, somewhere down this life's path, will cause the death or suffering of someone, somewhere, and all-too often many people. That could be the brazenly militant, or just the consumer, buying what YHVH does not want us to have, and that product hurting those nearby or in another nation.

From the revelation of blood diamonds to the loss of human life in the coal mines and other activities via the exploitation of natural resources, evil humans are ravenous in living lifestyles hell-bent on the destruction of YHVH's planet. As consumerism spreads, Earth suffers; the effects of consumerism is antiChrist in every possible way. The Car Cult alone, is overwhelming in its scope and magnitude; the utter indifference necessary to partake in it, revelatory.

Because it will take the pride-conquered so many millions of years, just to understand what YHVH could show them plainly while here on Earth, hell will seem experientially eternal. But even the universe is not eternal (not this one anyway). Hell is referred to as eternal because, as corporeal mortals locked in the grips of time/space, the idea of eternity (time-eternal) is really a mystery to us. We are aware of one dimension (our 3-dimensional corporeality), though there could be two, or ten, or a hundred, or even millions for all we know.

Perhaps aloneness for a million millennia might actually soften some into being eternally honorable unto YHVH; a vessel made worthy of/for His use; a workman rather than a taker-man. I believe it would take too long for human pride to be breached; for the hellbound masses, billions of years would not reverse their pride-conquered state, as it is demonstrated by them, during the here and now. Pride is all-powerful; volition is our superpower. You, created in the image of YHVH, are volitional; YHVH gave you that superpower, which even YHVH cannot overrule. Compare the very words of The Master: John 3:16-17, the will of YHVH versus the ultimate outcome, Matt 7:13-14.

Pride: On-Ramp To Broadway into the Abyss!

Actions alone, do not send people to hell: actions are the fruit-evidence (the proof) that people are Faithless; Godless; Loveless: Dedicated to pride, and as such, doomed to hell. If a person will not dedicate the self to living Christ-centric in this infinitesimal blink of time (what we call, life on Earth), it will be a veritable impossibility to do it every second of eternity. The math is elementary.

In pondering purgatory, the logic of a second chance, as it were, is not unreasonable. I know that pride leads to dogma, and dogma leads to even more pride. Some people are so damaged emotionally that they seek out others, just to be a part of any local us-against-them club-mentality that's indicative of Godless-religious cultures. We see this on an even more superficial level with racial Bigotry (literally skin-deep). In other words, to see race at all, the hominid must be pathetically and profoundly superficial; way too far from the Cross to ever make it there in one human lifetime.

Perhaps YHVH does have a "second-chance" mechanism; if that is so, we surely do not want to rely on it. The problem with purgatory, then is; why this life? Simple: This life provides far more than (merely) a place to be born at. YHVH can do whatever YHVH wants to do, and corporeality, as awesome as it is to us, is nothing to YHVH. This life represents an opportunity for volition to be played out. It is how we are brought into this (particular) dimension. We have both good and evil; God and mammon; survival or surrender. I do not know if we will get a second chance after biological death: The bottom-line is this; why take the chance?

The wailing and gnashing of teeth, is that suffering that results, not from YHVH fueling hell; all suffering is internal, not external. The suffering will come from three base-sources; those who ignored YHVH, those who scoffed or mocked YHVH, and those who faked a relationship with YHVH: The Godless and the Godless-religious (the churched). Christianity does not represent Messiah Yeshua!

The catholic theology of purgatory is a way to sell more products; an appeasement for those grieving the death of a loved one. Deep down the lost know they are doomed, hence the hunger for such validation, concerning dead relatives. But the religionists need to fill a position, and if no one needs a service, they do not (and will not) seek it. The capitalistic model is simple and ancient: create (or perpetuate or allow) a problem, and then become the solution provider. Verily, the Christian views on Hell (like all economic products) will continue to adapt to the culture's market. (See also: Outer Darkness: Heaven’s Suburb or Hell?)
