Hell is Down In the Heart of the Earth
Matthew 12:40, “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Acts 2:27, “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” If we cross-reference these two passages of Scripture, then we can logically conclude that Jesus spent three days and nights in a place called “Hell,” in the heart of the earth. Jesus told the repentant thief on the cross in Luke 23:43, “Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” So how could Jesus go to both Hell and Paradise? Clearly, Hell must be compartmentalized (as we read in Luke 16:19-32), with the place of Paradise on one side and the place of Torment on the other side. This is the only Biblical conclusion that does justice to all Scriptures.
Yes, I believe Hell is real. Science proves that as you descend down into the earth, the temperature rises drastically. Interestingly, the oceans become colder as you descend. At the bottom of the Marians Trench, just off Guam, the water temperature 39,000 feet down is at a unbelievable 34 to 39 degrees Fahrenheit. God is amazing! Scientists (humanity) have always been arrogant, refusing to admit when they simply do not KNOW how to explain something. There is not one honest scientist upon the earth who can explain the origins of mankind apart from the Holy Bible. I believe the Bible is clear that Hell is down inside the earth. Proverbs 15:24, “The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.” Ezekiel 31:17, “They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.” There are numerous reasons why I believe Hell is located down under the earth, in the molten parts of the planet. The $64,000 question is—Will you go there when you die? Perhaps you side with the skeptics who mock the Biblical idea of Hell as being an old wives tale, ancient folklore or superstition. Are you willing to take that risk? What if? What if the Holy Bible is right, and there is a place called Hell, where Christ-rejecting sinners are tormented for their sins, suffering in burning molten fire and brimstone forever and ever? Are you foolish enough to ignore the Word of God? O friend, I beg you not to shirk off God's Word.
