    By way of analogy, if a sea gull on the West Coast picked up a grain of sand and dropped it on the East Coast, and then came back and repeated the process every ten thousand years, when all the beaches of the West Coast were transplanted to the East Coast, well, that's the first ten MINUTES of eternity.

  4. Its all in the Bible for those who believe in God and His Word.

    Hell is mentioned in many dozens of Scriptures throughout the Bible. There are
    five departments in the underworld of departed Spirits, not one of these places
    is associated with or is the grave where bodies are buried.

    The five departments of Hell are;

    One). Paradise, which we are speaking of here;

    In Luke 16:19-31; 23:43, we have pictured total comfort and water in this
    prison because the rich man saw Lazarus afar off in comfort and bliss and asked
    him to dip his finger in water and cool his tongue (Luke 16:19-31). This was
    the abode of the righteous souls from Adam after dying and leaving their
    bodies, being held captive by the devil against their wills till Christ's death
    and resurrection (Heb. 2:14-15; Eph. 4:7-11). Before Jesus Christ conqured the
    power of death and Hell, the devil had these powers. (Col. 2:14-17; Heb.
    2:14-15; Rev. 1:18).

    It was into this prison the repentant thief went with Christ the day they both
    died (Luke 23:43). This prison is located in the heart of the Earth as is clear
    from Matt. 12:40 and Eph. 4:7-11. Jesus not only went into this prison but He
    also went into another prison, "Tartarus," and preached to the fallen
    angels being held there in their own special prison. Jesus having conqured Hell
    and death and the grave during His crucifiction and during the three days He
    was in the underworld, He captured all the righteous souls that were in
    Paradise and took them to Heaven when He ascended on high (Eph. 4:7-11). Jesus
    now has the keys to Hell and death (Rev. 1:18). Rightious souls who die now no
    longer go here. They go straight to Heaven when they die.

    Two). Tartarus; This prison is the special prison for the fallen angels that
    sinned both before and after the flood. There is nothing recorded in Scripture
    that teaches demons or human beings ever go into this prison. In these passages
    it is clear that there is a real Hell that is not the grave and that Spirit
    beings are confined in chains until judgment (1 Pet. 3:19; 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude

    Three). Hell itself; (Matt. 16:18; Luke 16:19-31). This is the torment part in
    the unseen world and was, still is, and will yet be the abode of all the wicked
    souls and spirits of men from Able to the end of the Millennium. Then, at this
    time all the wicked will be liberated out of this prison and will be given
    their own immortal bodies and be judged before being cast into the "lake
    of fire" forever (Rev. 20:11-15; 21:8).

    Four). The Bottomless Pit or Abyss is the abode or prison of demons and certain
    angelic beings. No human being is ever thrown into the abyss. It is a very deep
    chasm in the lower parts of the Earth. It is translated "deep" (Luke
    8:26-31; Romans 10:7) and "Bottomless Pit" in Rev. 9:1-3, 11; 11:7;
    17:8; 20:1-10). All these Scriptures prove that there are prisons in the lower
    parts of the Earth for departed sinning spirits, and they are not and could
    never be the same as a grave on the surface of the Earth.

    And Five). The Lake of Fire, is the eternal Hell and perdition of wicked men,
    demons, fallen angels, and all rebellious creatures of all ages who have ever
    rebelled against God, and who have refused to repent when they could have. It
    is called "The Gehenna of Fire" and is always translated Hell (Matt.
    5:22, 29, 30; 10:28; 18:9; 23:15, 33; Mark 9:43-45, 47; Luke 12:5; James 3:6).
    This prison is also called "the second death, which is the lake of
    fire" (Rev. 2:11; 20:6, 14). This final Hell was prepared for the devil
    and all his angels (Matt. 25:41-46), and for all other rebells, and it is
    ETERNAL in duration (Rev. 14:9-14; 20:10-15; Isa. 66:22-24; Matt. 25:46). There
    is no record in Scripture of anyone being the lake of fire at present.
    Scripture does show that the beast and the false prophet will be the first to
    be cast into it. This will happen before the Millennium (Rev. 19:20). They will
    still be there 1,000 years later when the devil and all other rebels will be
    cast into it (Rev. 20:10-15).

    Scripture also teaches that there will be degrees of punishment in Hell as far
    as remorse and torment of the conscience is concerned (Matt. 10:15; 11:22;
    12:41; 23:14; Mark 6:11; 12:40; Luke 10:14; 11:31, 32; 20:47).

    These degrees of punishment will be because of the kind of sins
    committed by one that were not committed by another. No man will be punished or
    could have remorse over something he did not do. They will all regret rebelling
    against God and man and failing to believe in Jesus, and repenting of sin.

    In the future men on Earth will be able to look into a real burning
    Hell under the Earth. This is plainly stated in Isa. 66:22-24 where the prophet
    predicts that all natural men in the New earth will be able to look into Hell
    upon the men that have sinned against God.

    Rev. 14:9-11 also proves that men will be tormented in the presence of
    God and angels forever. These passages are literal and should be understood
    just as they read.

    God forces no one to obey Him.

    Men can and must freely choose to love and
    obey God to receive all of His promised blessings. If they choose to obey the
    will reap all the promised blessings, if they choose to disobey, to rebel, to
    sin, they will reap the promised curses.

    God created hell for the devil, his angels and
    his rebel followers.

    When its all done and dusted men will be able to
    look into Hell for ever and see those there suffering in eternal flames if they
    want to see. It will be a good reminder of where one will end up if one chooses
    to fall. Hell will be an eternal monument.

    What about those who have never hear of God or the Bible, What happens to them?

    There are probably millions of people living now, and in days gone by who have never heard of God, Jesus, the Bible, God's Word, who will be judged by God, not according to the Law or commandments, but by the way they lived their lives in the society they were born and raised in.

    Paul wrote in Romans 2:11-15;

    Romans 2:11, For there is no respect of persons with God.
    12, For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
    13, (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
    14, For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
    15, Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

    V. 16, in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. 16, In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
    The idea that dozens of people found dead in the Broadway Café, Tasmania, while, waiting for police, is somehow morally superior to having several armed and alive civilian's explaining to police how the attacker got those fatal bullet wounds.
