37. The Fall of Lucifer, part 3

37. The Fall of Lucifer, part 3

"...the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."
Matthew 25:41b

Just what happened at the Fall of Lucifer, beyond his being cast out of heaven?

Likely, Gehenna (aka the eternal fire / lake of fire) was created. You won't see this word in English Bibles as it is always translated "hell."

Get this:

Sheol (Hebrew) / Hades (Greek) / Hell (Anglo-Saxon) = the land of the dead. They are the same place in different languages.

Gehenna = Lake of Fire

Gehenna / Lake of Fire does NOT = Sheol/Hades/Hell.

Death and the Hades/Hell are thrown into Gehenna/Lake of Fire and destroyed.

Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:14
Hell (the Land of the Dead) is a temporary place where humans go when they die. Jesus even went there when he died (Luke 23:43). There is a chasm that separates the righteous from the unrighteous, and the pleasant side is sometimes called Paradise or Abraham's Bosom (Luke 16:19–31). Some scholars speculate that mortals are in a soul sleep, others belief they are fully conscious. Either way, Hell/Sheol/Hades is merely a temporary abode where dead mortals await the resurrection of the judgement (Daniel 12:2).

Swordcraft Tip: Follow this link, then find those verses in your Bible. Circle or highlight the word "hell," and in the margin, write "Gehenna" or "Lake of Fire."

What do you think of Gehenna being created for Satan and his army of demons?
