If you believe in hell, do you believe it is eternal? Do you believe it is a place of absolute separation from the presence of God, filled with screams and the terror of those suffering in everlasting torment? My intention in this page is to verify beyond a shadow of a doubt, especially to those who believe the words of the Bible, that if there is a hell, it can not be eternal. After all, smile, only God is eternal.

Revelations 5:13
And every creature which is in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the seas, and all that are in them, heard I saying, 

Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Amen!


So in light of this...
if GOD is the Final Goal and First Cause of the universe...
if ALL will be filled with the fullness of HIM who fills everythingeverywhere...
if ALL will be subdued/brought into subjection to God...
if the ultimate awesome reality is that ALL was and is and will be HIS, and that in the end God shall be wholly and absolutely God...
can ANYTHING be separated from Him
eternally/everlastingly/forever... and ever?


Do you see that
an "eternal" hell
is completely, totally, irrevocably
incompatible with this message?

Do you see that
an "eternal" hell
is completely, totally, irrevocably
dishonoring to the Father and the son?

Do you see that
an "eternal" hell
must be an erroneous doctrine?

Isn't it high time
the Lord Jesus Christ received
the glory due His inestimable Name
for the work He accomplished
for The ETERNAL Father?


When is He going to do it? ... In the fullness of time.
How is He going to do it? ... By His Spirit and His Word.
Will He do it? ... Is God, God?


When the people heard this, they were moved to the depths
of their hearts and said... what are we to do?

Peter answered, Repent---change your views and purpose
to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of
rejecting it---and be immersed (baptized) every one of you,
in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins,
and you will have the Holy Spirit given to you.

For it is to you and your children that this great Message
comes, and to all those in distant times and places, even to as
many as the Lord our God invites and bids come to Himself.
