Will acolytes of satan suffer for eternity?

by Trent - originally posted Sept 19th, 2005

burntLet him who can withstand the Eternal Sea of Fire, do so.

The question is, not whether God would want the wicked to be endlessly miserable, but the question is about how much His enemies can withstand of God's wrath.

Remember Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego? They could hang in the fire, because of the Fourth person (the Lord Jesus) could stand the heat. To me this is a picture of the REVELATION that is made by the Fire, and what can withstand the presence of the fire (even as the guards that through them into the furnace were consumed.)
Now, spring forward to the day of Pentecost ... what did we see over the redeemed heads? Where they not as the bush (before Moses) that burned and was not consumed? And I know why the bush burned without being consumed: God was in the bush!

The redeemed have something in common with the bush that burned without being consumed. The redeemed have the Lord Jesus mingled within their innermost being. They have God within them through their oneness with the Lord. The redeemed are as the bush with God inside ... they may dance in the fire, even as the fire danced over their heads that day. For having Eternal life, makes the redeemed view the Eternal fire, as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego can view the fiery furnace ... we will be saved, because the One, Whom we worship and Whose blood flows within us, is not threatened by any flame.

Now to directly answer the question: the godless won't last long in the exposure to the sea of Fire, and are on the wide path to "DESTRUCTION." They will be as a bush that burns and IS consumed, for God is not in that bush, and "God is a consuming Fire."

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Jn 3:16

It isn't duration of "suffering" that is at stake. It is a Life and death situation.

I tend to think you are entirely
right in this insofar as "GOD the
Torturer" goes. Hell and the lake of
fire is ETERNAL seperation from GOD.
- plenty reason enough to avoid it
at all cost.

NO ONE knows the actual manner and
duration of punishment for satan,
his fallen angels, and those who
follow their pernicious ways...NO ONE. ... but a lot of people PRETEND
they know. (!)

Thanks for the insight, Trent.

HE IS THE WAY for us...and in us...
and THRU us !

What I've read in Revelation says that Satan and the false prophet will suffer eternal torment. That isn't said about men, Death, or Hades. The latter will be destroy but my understanding is that the other two will suffer and I believe the purpose of that will be for a reminder of the sufering disobedience to God wrought upon us all.

I also believe that the Lake of Fire will beging at the fires of Gehenna and grow to consume not only the lost but the entire universe before the establishment of the New Heaven and New Earth. God is a consuming Fire. It is more than my imagination can hold.

Amen...excellent Trent.

John 15:5 -
"I am the Vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without Me.

Note: The furnace in Daniel 3:19 was heated "7 times hotter"; and they were taken through with no hurt and not even the smell of the fire was on them. And that they were condemned to death by the ruler of the known world(then), because they would not bow down or worship the 'image'. Any of that sound familiar?

Other notable verses related to your post:

Mt 13:30 -
"Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."

Mal 4:1 -
"For behold, the Day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up," Says the Lord of hosts, "That will leave them neither root nor branch."

1 Cor. 3:13
each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is.

If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But GOD chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; GOD chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. HE chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things- and the things that are not- to nulllify the things that are, so that no one may boast before HIM. It is because of HIM that you are in CHRIST JESUS, who has become for us wisdom from GOD-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written; "Let him who boasts boast in the LORD." When i came to you, brothers, i did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as i proclaimed to you the testimony about GOD. For i rsoloved to know nothing while i was with you except JESUS CHRIST AND HIM crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the SPIRITS power. so that your faith may not rest on mens wisdom, but on GOD'S power. So shall i speak of the thorn in my side if need be, praise be to all whom have understanding of my words, for you proclaim that which all seek. Praise be to our FATHER and HIS SON.

"I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. HE will baptize you with the HOLY SPIRIT and fire. HIS winnowing fork is in HIS hand, and HE will clear HIS threshing floor, gathering HIS wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
And again, when GOD BRINGS his firstborn into the world , HE says
"Let all GOD'S angels worship HIM."In speaking of the angels HE says, "HE makes HIS angels winds, HIS servants flames of fire."
Therefore, since we are recieving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship GOD acceptably with reverance and awe, for our "GOD is a consuming fire."
HIS head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and HIS eyes were like blazing fire. HIS feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and HIS voice was like the sound of rushing waters.
For HE watches over HIS children from right to left from east to west with the radiant fire that envelopes those that are true to HIS WORD. Take notice of my words brothers and sisters, lost or found, there is coming a day quit soon when HIS radiant smile will go black(dark),like sackcloth made from goathair, rest assured that it is then that HE has turned HIS face on the evil and wicked ways of HIS precious CREATION. But even then it is not to late, repent my brothers and sisters and you may still recieve HIS gift of mercy.
Praise be to JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR i pray that all come to know HIM.
your bro in HIS name,
