The wicked being simply Annihilated. Remember the story about the rich man and the poor man? Remember how the rich man wanted the poor man to drip his finger in water and cool his mouth? Look also at revelations “ and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” And then we have the final judgment of the wicked at the Great White Throne, “Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Scary stuff I’d say. Yet, I would also say that this fear of the Lord’s power should only motivate us all to try all the more to spread the good news of our Lord. Because to be honest, God is scary, as can be seen in both the Old and New. However, God is also a kind and loving God. He gave is Only Son for us, he owes us nothing and still he saved us. From the foundation of creation God had always planned the redemption of man, and as children of God it is our obligation to spread the Gospel. I would like to end with a wonder quote by Charles Spurgeon, “If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”
These all state that the dead are out of existence, rotting in the earth. Their atoms will be recycled over & over, and there wil be NOTHING to resurrect. The Adventists say that at the end of the millenium, the lost (80-100 billion people) will be recreated - copies made. Instead of forgiveness and a 2nd chance, they will be given enough rope to hang themselves -time to enter into a planning session with Satan and Napoleon will lead the army to attack New Jerusalem.
Then after being stopped and convinced of their total unworthiness to exist, they will be devoured by fire. Why raise them at all ? I am convinced that Revelations & Daniel are spurious books, causing no end of doctrinal mischief.
It could be worse,one deranged black man stated that after the millenium, the lost will be recreated -for eternal torture ! Again, why raise them at all ? He called a number of TV preachers "lying sunday revs". I think he's been committed by now.
