No. 1341: Last Judgment for people where they will be destroyed !!

No. 1341:
Last Judgment for people where they will be destroyed !!

By Svein Marøy

The author takes us into what God says, not what the church fathers and others who know better than God what he says about the people who reject his offer of salvation in Christ Jesus.
To me it says very clearly what God is going to do with those who are not worthy of him.
It is for judgment, one be destroyed of the infidels and wicked!

That people are born with an immortal soul, takes the faithful granted. You hear it so often in the ministry, that one would think that this was thoroughly vindicated in the Bible. The truth however is another. The word soul is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible. But not a single place it says that man has an immortal soul. That man is born with an immortal soul, come not from the Bible, but has its origins in Greek philosophy. There were philosophers Plato and Socrates who argued that humans had an immortal soul.

At some point before the year 500 was immortality of the soul a vital part of the Christian faith
In 1 Timothy 6:16 says, "Who only hath immortality, dwelling in a light that no one can get to." Here it is really that it is only God who has immortality, and one should have thought what it says written.

When it comes to people, so we do not have an immortal soul, but we can be involved in immortality by receiving faith in Jesus Christ. In 2. Tim. 1.10 reads: "Now this grace was manifest in our Savior Jesus Christ. He has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. "(I do note that because the text words" aftharsia "also means immortality.) In 1 Cor. 15, 53-54 says: "For this corruptible must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruptibility, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come the word that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Adam and Eve had immortality in Paradise while they ate of the tree of life. After they had sinned, came death, suffering, sorrow, pain and toil into their everyday lives. A completely new situation had arisen, and God was now anxious that they would continue to have access to the tree of life. Therefore, God said, "Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; Only now he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life and live forever. "To prevent this, banished God them from the Garden of Eden, while he sent angels out to make sure no one had access to the tree of life .

This was a work of mercy towards us humans, for God so that no one would be served by living forever with the pain and suffering that came into our lives with the Fall. Meanwhile, God promised to give us a new opportunity to live in harmony with God and creation. God would one day send his own son, Jesus Christ, to atone Fall. Jesus would now get the same function as the tree of life. As Adam and Eve had immortality while they ate of the tree of life, thus now possible to achieve immortality through faith in Jesus Christ and the words he has spoken. If we receive a life that is immortal, it is the course of inestimable importance that this is a good and harmonious life. About this we read the majestic words of Johs. Rev. 21: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them; and he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, and no sorrow and no screaming and no torment shall be no more, for the former things are passed away. "In the new universe that God will one day create , everything should be clean. There should not be such that it is a place to be jubilation, joy, love and security, while elsewhere shall be anguish and pain that will last through the ages. To be involved in this as described in Johs. Rev should be more than enough motivation to keep the faith.

In our language frequently used word forever, but in the context the word is used, it is seldom we think of a time without end. Eg. We could have waited for a bus that is ½ delayed. Then we can exclaim: "Now I have waited for the bus forever," or, "I can not stand here forever and wait for the bus." To describe a limited time under pain, is often used the word forever. A dental patient may say, "The treatment took about 20 minutes, but it was so painful that I felt like it took an eternity before the work was done.

When we talk about glaciers, we often use the words Eternal snow. We do not think about it that the snow will be there for billions of years. The snow is there from generation to generation, and therefore it is natural to use the word forever. Moreover, one can say about a hymn or sermon It was forever long. We often hear someone say "It happened a long time ago. When someone says: May you never, "is often meaning: As long as I live.

The word eternal may also be used figuratively, and in such cases the word something with time to do. We can say: "You have forever right. This means: You are absolutely and completely right. Other times they say: "Stop the eternal whimpering yours." And the meaning is the continual and incessant whimpering.

In the Bible, the word eternal (Greek aion, Heb. Olam) in the same manner as in Norwegian vernacular. In G.T. we find laws, covenants, sacrifices and ceremonial actions of many kinds that were until Christ, but who then would cease. Nevertheless, it is often about these laws: This shall be a statute. The word forever stand here as a reinforcement and means it should be an absolute and unalterable law, but by no means a law that would apply a time without end. If one takes the time to look up the word forever, one will be surprised how often the word is used without connectable to a time without end. Eg. Habakkuk 3:16. "The eternal mountains were scattered." The meaning here is clear. Eternal is here mighty big. Had word forever stood for absolute perpetual, when they could not shatter.

The reason I write this, that one is not out of the word eternal may determine that a torment or punishment in hell will last without end. In Matthew 25.46 says; And these shall go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. "(That one translates the word kolasim with torment is wrong. It knows translators better than me, and I have every reason to believe that the word anguish is used for that it immediately becomes easier to defend the doctrine of endless torment) so it is said that when the eternal life will be infinitely long, so have the penalty, last indefinitely. The argument is completely wrong. This scripture says nothing about how long the penalty or life in heaven will last. In Johs. 17.3 reads: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, or the only true God, and him you sent, Jesus Christ." Here we thus meaning of the word "eternal life." Eternal life is therefore a perfect, safe and harmonious life, and that is to know God and his son Jesus. Likewise it with punishment. Eternal punishment stands for the total, absolute, fair and innapellable punishment and capital punishment can certainly be an eternal punishment.

Terms like "forever" can not be construed as a time without end in all situations. In Psalm 104.5 says about the earth that "it should not be removed for ever." If express "eternity" stands for absolute perpetual, would this scripture come into conflict with other Bible verses. Jesus said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away." In 2 Pet. 3.10 reads: "and the heavenly bodies will be dissolved with fire, and earth and the works in it will burn up." And again in Johs. Rev. 20.11. "And I saw a white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away, and there was found no place for it."
The term eternity in Psalm 104.5 stands for a long time, yet is limited. In Johs. Rev. 14, 10-11 says: "he shall also drink of God's wrath, which is poured in his wrath, and he shall be tormented with Source and sulfur for the saints and angels and the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment ascends forever, and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives his mark. "Johs. Rev. 20, 10: "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet, and they shall bite day and night forever and ever." Here we see the two places where the phrase eternity occurs. But now we have certainly seen that shall never means a time without end in Psalm 104. Just as in Psalm 104 is also here the term eternity for a limited time. Seeing a closer look at chapter 14 of context, then it's probably not talking about destruction at all.
Here John writes about the great tribulations that will one day come upon the earth. Jesus said on one occasion. "For then shall be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning until now, nor ever shall be. And were not those days be shortened, there was no flesh be saved but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. "During this period, tribulations, catastrophes and man's evil upon them incessantly, and those who experience this, you will probably feel that this misery will never end and that this will continue forever. But those who know the prophetic word, know that these afflictions one day end. One of the reasons I can interpret this to mean is that it says: "day and night forever and ever." But Bible says elsewhere that the sun, moon, day and night shall cease. When it says that they will be tormented in front of the lamb's eyes, so it is natural to interpret this as if Jesus is closely watching what is happening. He knows that all life on Earth is in danger, and Jesus will now fit in and prevent the soil becomes completely destroyed.

In Matthew 13 the disciples asked Jesus if he could interpret the parable of the sower. Jesus answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world. The good seed are the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil. The enemy that sowed them is the devil. Harvest is the end of the age. Reapers are angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. "These words are so very clear. Just as the weeds are burned with fire and destroyed, so will those who will not believe will be burned up and destroyed. Had it been so the ungodly be burned forever, Jesus could not have compared them with weeds, but with something that did not seem to burn with fire.

We hear so often that we have to believe what is written in the Bible. I therefore challenge the article's readers: Do you believe in Jesus when he says: "As the weeds are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be at the end of the age"? Or is it that faith in an endless agony sits so fast that you say, "Jesus, you're wrong. We can not believe you when you speak contrary to our Lutheran confession. Our confession says the always what's right, so here introduces you actually a false doctrine. "

That the wicked will be burned up and destroyed are many places in the Bible. I'll just mention a few. Goal. 4: "For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; when all the arrogant and all who do wickedly shall be stubble. And the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. "And in v. 3:" And ye shall tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under your soles. "there should be no doubt that here speaks of judgment day. If the doctrine of endless torment had been correct, could not Malachi have written like this guy does.

Psalm 37.20: "For the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the meadow flowers garb; they will disappear like smoke shall they vanish. V. 3, "but the transgressors shall be destroyed all together, the wicked future cut." Es. 5,4: "Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and high collapsed in his cap, so shall their root rot, and their flower ascend as dust: for they have rejected the Almighty law and despised Holy One of Israel's word."

When Jesus in Matthew 13 speaks of the wicked shall be cast into a fiery furnace, we find this again in Johs. Rev., But then used the words lake of fire and the second death. And the devil and all evil people will be thrown into the lake of fire. Rev. 20.13 to 15: "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And if anyone was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. "I find it strange that such a precise word as" the second death, "being away interpreted to be a pain without end. All people have to go through the first death, which is our body's death. The second death, the soul's death, and this is only the wicked who get to experience.

Reason The text's words "apollymi" translated to perish perdition. But the word is also translated as: losing his life, perish, kill, kill, destroy, perish, perish, perishable destroyed so on. This is what happens on the day of judgment, The wicked will be destroyed, perish; destroyed, etc. So when in Johs. 3:16 says "should not perish," so it could just as easily have been: do not be destroyed. Personally, I believe that perish is a straightforward translation, but it is completely wrong to interpret destruction to become a torment without end.

Daily newspaper The day had many years ago a leader where the doctrine of endless torment was defended. As evidence was cited by Markus 9.43 to 48. It says about "unquenchable fire," the fire that is not quenched "and" worm that will not die. "But what is an unquenchable fire. When a house burns so hard that it is not possible to extinguish the flames, one can say that the house burned up with unquenchable fire. But of course, when the house is burned, so goes the house by themselves. It is now once fire exercise to burn up what is combustible. We have a similar example in Matthew 3:12. It says that he (Christ) will clear his threshing floor and gather the wheat into the barn while the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire. Here it is evident that the chaff burn up. Unquenchable fire must mean that no one can extinguish the fire before it has done its work.

In Mark 9 seems worm with fire. The worm does not die before it has deer destroy the wicked. In Isaiah 51.7 to 8 we read: Fear not the reproach of men, and afraid of their blasphemies. For the moth shall eat them like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool, "Here we see that moths and worms used as a picture of how the wicked will be destroyed. In Mark 9 has worm the same task as moth and rust in Isaiah 51

Jesus often used the word hell on Judgment Day. Hell is translated from the word Gehenna, the Greek word for the Hebrew Gehinnom. This is a place name and means Himmons valley. This place is located close to the walls of ancient Jerusalem. In Jesus' day was garbage from Jerusalem, even dead animals and possibly also the bodies of criminals thrown into this valley and burned. It was thus a corruption valley. We know what happened to the garbage that was thrown into Gehenna. It was cast there that it would be burned and destroyed. Therefore it was natural for Jesus to use Gehenna as a picture of what will happen to the wicked in the judgment.

Jesus often used figurative language to reveal its message. To reveal the gospel of love, he used the words bride and groom. For this picture to work, there are two key conditions must be met. Love must be mutual, and the bride must have chosen to say yes to her husband of their own free will. This is a picture that shows how wrong preaching about an endless torment is. I continue to use the image, and hearing some preachers will then be as follows: A man meets a woman and get her dearly loved. He expresses his love for her and says he wants all his heart to live with her in good and bad days. Then he says this. -I Know that you can get a good life together with me. But if you say no to my offer, you should know that I have power to throw you into prison and torture and torment you, and you will never get away from my revenge. So be sure now that you choose the right. "

When you read the Bible, so it is important that you read it with an open mind and a sincere desire to find the truths contained therein. We can not, as the disciples ask Jesus directly and face to face if there is anything we wonder. But Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to help us with the understanding of the Bible's message. If we are sincere in our quest for truth, it does not help if we biblical knowledge. One can quickly get in the same situation as the scribes in Jesus time was in. And Jesus was not merciful to them. "Ye do err, because ye know not the scriptures, nor the power of God," and "You ransack the scriptures, because ye think ye have eternal life in them - and they are they which testify of me. But you will not come to me for life. "It's no wonder that the scribes were provoked by Jesus' words. They could not tolerate that Jesus, an unlearned carpenter's son, would correct them, they like all day studying the scriptures.

I know that God hates the doctrine of endless torment, because this doctrine tells us lies about God. God has no interest in maintaining life with painful torment just for him to get his revenge. Jesus came that we might have life, abundant life. But there is now even a fact that many people do not care about this, and that they do not care about justice, truth and goodness. When has God no other option but to end their lives.

In this article as best told the truth about what is happening in the judgment you.
So get the individual decide if he will believe in the truth liberating word, or as God himself says it is!
