The End of Time

The Scripture Is Our Guide

The second coming of Christ and subsequent events are of vital significance. There are many scriptures and prophecies concerning the end of time. “Theory and speculation amount to nothing with respect to future things” (D.S Warner). It is important that the scripture be the guide rather than intellectual and philosophical pursuits in understanding this subject. The scripture points forward to a time that Jesus will return. There will be a universal resurrection of the dead, a general judgment of all people, eternal rewards and punishments dispensed, and this earth will be destroyed. Read more

Definitions of Hell

Scripture: Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. (Parallel scripture: Psalm 16:10).

Hell‘ in this passage is translated from the Hebrew word ‘Sheol‘ and from the Greek word ‘Hades‘. These words mean: the grave, the state of the dead, or the place of departed souls.

When Jesus died on the cross he did not go to the devil’s hell. His soul ascended to paradise–a place of pleasure and delight.

Jesus told the thief on the cross, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).
