Going to a zoo is educational, for people of all ages, and when you are there you might be in the presence of a lion, tiger or a bear, but at the same time you are separated from these ferocious animals. The scripture teaches us that in the world to come unconverted men will be separated from the glory of the Lord, but the scripture also teaches us that unconverted men will be punished in the presence of the Holy Angels and in the presence of the Lamb. In this way God will magnify his infinite might, and Majesty.

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, and FROM THE GLORY OF HIS POWER;"

Revelation 14:10-11 "The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone IN THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY ANGELS, and IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LAMB: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."

Isaiah 66:23-24 "And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. And they shall GO FORTH, AND LOOK upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their WORM SHALL NOT DIE, neither shall their FIRE be QUENCHED; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."
