Hell, Adversity and Death


Valley of Hinnom
Yehoshua speaking to the people, spoke of the Valley of Hinnom (not a place called Hell), it being used as a figure, representing Yahweh’s coming judgment by fire such as was done with Sodom & Gomorrah. These people knew where the Valley of Hinnom (south west Jerusalem) was and that it was used for the city dump. This valley was defiled by blood and dead bodies; a valley that had a history of child sacrifice; a valley that had been defiled by King Josiah

Love me or Ill torture you forever

Life and Immortality by Basil Atkinson (1895–1971)
An Examination of the Nature and Meaning of Life and Death as They are Revealed in Scriptures

In the sections that follow I have sought to use positive argu­ments drawn from Scripture only and to examine as far as pos­sible all relevant scriptural material...We will ask ourselves the following questions. If Man's consciousness is carried by an invisible part of him which survives, how is it that unconsciousness can supervene from a physical accident such as a blow on the head? Should we not reasonably have supposed it to continue unaffected by sleep, accident, or any physical cause? If the godly are in a conscious disembodied state of bliss after death but before resurrection, how is it that there is no hint of recollection of it by the half dozen or so persons whose resurrection to life on earth is described for us in the Bible? If the godly dead are now in a state of perfect satisfaction and bliss, what is the ob­ject of their resurrection? Read Complete Article

A Messenger of Light
"The methods of satan (saw-tawn') have been revealed in the Word of Yahweh. Yahweh warned us that, "…the serpent, was more crafty than any living thing of the field which Yahweh Elohim had made" (Gen. 3:1). Great masses, I am afraid, are still ignorant of his methods because these masses have been educated in the teachings of men rather than ingesting the Living Words of Yahweh. In John chapter eight, Yahshua, the Master Teacher gives us a workshop on how the slanderer operates amongst the believers. The believers were taught in the Temple or synagogues in Yahshua's age but now they are taught in seminaries or Churches. Yahshua, seeing the unseen world, teaches us that it is not the beauty of the tree that we pay heed to but rather to its fruit; not to the speech of the minister but rather to his deeds in accordance with the Word of Yahweh."

Does Hell Exist in the Bible
"The meaning of the word 'Hell,' for most Christians, is "the place where fallen angels (devils) live and to where sinners and unbelievers go after death, for torment and eternal punishment." I would also add to this definition that most people believe that the adversary is the ruler or king of Hell and Hell's location is under the earth. This place called 'Hell,' does not exist in the Word of Yahweh, as we shall see. The word 'Hell,' is used 54 times in the King James Version of the Bible and 16 times in the NIV Bible. This word should not be part of a Christian's vocabulary. Two Bibles that do not contain the word Hell are, "Young's Literal Translation of the Holy Bible" and "Rotherham's Emphasized Bible," which also is a literal translation. Where did the word 'Hell,' come from?" Read Complete PDF Article

The Authority of The Slanderer, Adversary, Deceiver
"The adversary cannot control the weather, the motion of the universe or you. If he had that kind of power, our earth would have been destroyed a long time ago. He has no physical power or physical ability because he is a spirit. He has no hands or feet and neither do his agents, such as demons (spirits living in people) or messengers (spirits in heaven, angels). His power and authority, which is achieved through words of deception, is derived from willing men and women, who deliver up their authority and their bodies to him. Many of these people do not realize that they are pawns, being manipulated by his deceptive practices. His methods, at one time or another have deceived us all. The Apostle Paul was no exceptation. Saul was one of satan's religious pawns who was deceived through the religion of men and who delivered up his authority to satan, inadvertently. Saul became satan's mouth, hands and feet because he persecuted Yahshua. Yahshua said, "Saul! Saul! why, me, art thou persecuting" (Acts 9:4)? Saul's manipulation by the slanderer, through the religion of men was excused, because he was ignorant of the slanderer's methods (1 Tim. 1:13). If Saul had known the scriptures instead of religion, he would have recognized that Yahshua was the Messiah. We will discuss the verses concerning the slanderer, the adversary, the deceiver."

What happens when a person dies?
"Greek mythology is embedded in some of the teachings of the Christian Church today. The concepts of hell, the immortality of the soul, disembodied spirits and judgment given upon death all came from Greek Mythology. The Word of Yahweh does not teach the above doctrines. Our Fathers Word teaches that when people die, whether good or evil, they all go to sheol, which is a state of sleep. They await, in the state of sleep, for the Parousia of the Lord or the resurrection of the just or the resurrection of the unjust. The unjust will perish (be destroyed) and be cast into the lake of fire and the just will eventually live on the new earth (Paradise) age-abiding with Yahweh and His Son Yahshua. There are hundreds of clear verses in the Word of Yahweh that verify the above statements. Are there a few difficult verses that apparently contradict the clear verses? Yes! We do not make a doctrine out of a few difficult verses, as the Christian Church has done, when it contradicts the hundreds of clear verses. The difficult verses must be understood in the light of the clear verses." Read Complete PDF Article

Who is Responsible for Death?
"Death can be divided into two categories; natural death and premature death. Many Churches teach that Yahweh is sovereign, in their words, "He has complete authority and control over all human beings and every aspect of the universe." If Yahweh is in control then all death can be laid at His feet; He either caused the death or allowed the death to occur. Other Christian organizations teach that the devil has the power of death. Neither of the two cases listed above are correct. The responsible parties for natural death are Adam and Eve, who represent mankind as a whole. The serpent can take some credit because he did deceive Eve into believing his lie, which led to Adam and Eve's demise. Premature death, on the other hand, has multiple causes. An individual's actions can cause their own premature death; suicide, accident, disobedience to Yahweh, etc. Other men can cause an individual's premature death; an accident or murder. Yahweh can put to death evil individuals either directly or indirectly. The slanderer's deception and manipulation of mankind can indirectly contribute to an individual's murder. (The definitions of killing and murder are listed in the article.) The corruption of the earth, which is the result of Adam and Eve's sin, can cause an individual's premature death; sickness, disease, genetic defects, hurricanes, tornadoes etc. Christ came to destroy death, which is an enemy!"

Why does it sometimes appear that Yahweh does Evil?
"The image of Yahweh, in the books of Genesis through Malachi, is different than Yahweh's image presented in the four Gospels. In the former books Yahweh is presented as someone who could bring sickness, even unto death, on His servants while in the latter books He heals and brings the dead back to life through His Son, Yahshua. What accounts for this contrasting image of Yahweh? Did Yahweh change His behavior between the time of Malachi and the ministry of Yahshua? No! Then what accounts for this contrast? In the Old Covenant, Yahweh did not reveal our adversary, the great deceiver, to Moses or to any other prophet. The evil acts committed in the Old Covenant were attributed to Yahweh even though the adversary and other factors were actually responsible. The truth about the adversary could not be revealed until the coming of Yahshua. Yahshua then instructed the believer that our fight was not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness (Eph. 6:12). Yahweh's true nature has now been manifested in its fullness through the life of His Son. Yahshua said to Phillip, "He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father" (Jn. 14:9)." Read Complete PDF Article
