Question? Where is Hell located?
In the center of the earth. This is where ALL unsaved, lost people still go today when they die.
This compartment in the center of the earth was divided into two sections. PARADISE for the saved , TORMENT for the lost.
To find out this truth lets FIRST look at Luke 23:43:
(Luke 23:43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
The BELIEVING thief asked Jesus to REMEMBER him after his(Jesus) death to enter his heavenly kingdom V42
Christ told the BELIEVING thief “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise”
To Find out where Paradise is lets look at two verses:
#1… Mathew 12:40
For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart (Center) of the earth.
When Christ Died he went to the Center (Heart) of the earth which was thePARADISE side of this two section compartment ACCORDING to Luke 23:43
#2… Ephesians 4:9
(Ephesians 4:9) (Now that he (Jesus) ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts (Center/ Heart) of the earth?
AFTER Jesus had died he desended into the PARADISE side.
To establish the fact that Hell is also in the Center of the Earth lets look at Luke 16:19-28
(Luke 16:19-28) There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: (20) And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
(21) And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (22) And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; (23) And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
(24) And 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. (25) But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. (26) And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. (27) Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: (28) For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
In Verse 19-28 we have the account of the Rich Man (lost, unsaved) and Lazarus and Abraham (saved).
The Rich Man went to hell (torment side) and Abraham, Lazarus were in Paradise, Abrahams Bosom was an Old Testament reference to Paradise.
Being that The Rich Man and Abraham could see and talk to each other and there was a GREAT GULF of space seperating between the two compartments V26 , and we have ALREADY established the fact ACCORDING to Luke 23:43, Matthew 12:40, and Ephesians 4:9 that Paradise is in the Center of the Earth, therefore if The Rich man and Abraham could see and talk to each other and Abraham explaining to the Rich Man that there is a Great Gulf of space SEPERATING between them, then you have to come to the same conclusion that hell (torment) is ALSO IN the Center (Heart) of the Earth.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
