Summary: Using scriptures to prove there is a real place called Hell.

Mt.10:28 Is There A Place Called Hell?

Intro:A servey was once taken of 7,441 clergy

concerning their belief about hell. 58% of Methodist,

60% of Episcopalians, 54% of Presbyterians, 35% of

American Baptists believed that hell is not a location

after death for the lost, but the experiences of

self-estrangement, guilt, and meaninglessness in this

life. Let’s take a look at what the Bible really says

about hell....

I. The Place Called Hell.

A. Hell is a place beneath man.

Isa. 14:9, 15 : [9] "Hell from beneath is

excited about you,To meet you at your coming;

It stirs up the dead for you,[15] Yet you shall be

brought down to Sheol,To the lowest depths of the Pit.

Ezek 31:16:"I made the nations shake

at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to

hell together with those who descend into the

Pit." God speaking of Assyria.

Amos 9:2:[2] "Though they dig into hell,From

there My hand shall take them; Though they

climb up to heaven, From there I will bring

them down."

Ps.55:15:"Let death seize them; Let them go

down alive into hell, For wickedness is in their

dwellings and among them." David calls this

on his enemies knowing that God had once

did this to Mose’s enemies[Num. 16:30-34].

Mt.11:23:"And you, Capernaum, who are

exalted to heaven, will be brought down to

Hades; for if the mighty works which were

done in you had been done in Sodom, it would

have remained until this day." Speaking of the

indifference to Christ and His work.

B. Hell is a Place of Eternal Fire.

Dt.32:22;”For a fire is kindled in My anger,

And shall burn to the lowest hell..” God

speaking of His judgment of sin.

Mt.18:9;”And if your eye causes you to sin,

pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better

for you to enter into life with one eye, rather

than having two eyes, to be cast into hell

fire.” Jesus speaking on repentance instead of

going to Hell.

Mk.9:44,:Jesus calls it “...the fire that shall

never be quenched...”[Is66:24]

Lu.16:24;” Then he cried and said,’Father

Abraham, have mercy on me, and send

Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger

in water and cool my tongue, for I am

tormented in this flame.” Jesus speaking of

the rich man.

II. The People of Hell.

Who are they?

A. All People and Nations who Forgot God.

Ps.9:17:”The wicked shall be turned into hell,

And all the nations that forgot God.” That

includes the Muslim nations.

Mt.23:33:”Serpents, brood of vipers! How can

you escape the condemnation of hell?” Even the

religious can make into hell.

B. The Proud and Haughty.

Isa.5:14-15:”Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself

And opened its mouth beyond measure; Their

glory and their multitude and their pomp,

And he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.

People shall be brought down, Each man shall

be humbled, And the eyes of the lofty shall be

humbled,” There is plenty of room in hell.

Pr.16:18:”Pride goes before destruction, And a

haughty spirit before a fall.”

C. The devil and his angels.

Isa.14:14,15:”...I will be like the Most High. Yet

you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the

lowest depths of the Pit.”

IIPet.2:4:”....God did not spare the angels who

sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered

them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for


Mt.25:41:”Then He will also say to those on the

left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the

everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his


III. The Permanence of Hell.

A. It is Eternal Vengeance.

Jude7:”As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the

cities around them in a similar manner to

these, having given themselves over to

sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh,

are set forth as an example, suffering the

vengeance of eternal fire.

Jude11:”....perished in the rebellion of Korah.”

The earth opened up and took Korah and his

family to hell.[Num.16:1-3, 31-35]

IIThes.1:7-9:” give you who are troubled

rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed

from heaven with His mighty angels, in

flaming fire taking vengeance on those who

do not know God, and on those who do not

obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

These shall be punished with everlasting

destruction from the glory of His power.”

Those who do evil to us will pay a price of

eternal proportions.

B. It is Eternal torment.

Rev.14:11:”And the smoke of their torment

ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest

day or night, who worship the beast and his

image, and whoever receives the mark of his


Mt.25:46:”...these will go away into everlasting

punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

C. It is a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mt.8:12, 22:13, 24:51, 25:30:”...there will be
