2013, update 2017
Throughout reading the scriptures book carefully and study it language, I've discovered this word “HELL” is an actual wrong translated English word and how it define it as well. A word which was from in a old Greek word ᾍδης, ου, ὁ as hadés, somehow this word were translated to HELL and it twist our mind it all wrong in later time. Hadés mean the burial or hidden grave. But today people saying it the torment “Lake of Fire”. There a problem with this. I will show you why and how the modern definition of HELL is a mix up word.
While this word HELL, is one of the most tricky and sticky words to fool us century after century. Satan have every way to try to fool us about what the scripture really teaches by using men to preached. HELL is one of the most misunderstanding words. There are also other misunderstanding word people also misunderstood like Gehenna or Tartarus. Many of us also think these two place is also where the torment lake of fire are. The truth is, it's incorrect.
In this whole article, I, Bro. Pouliot will explain you why we're mistaken about this word of hell thing as the hellfire. Hoping that reader like you maybe will finally realize and understand how this word of HELL was replaced in vain. As it should of have mean the burial grave. The earthly underground vault, which laid any object or the dead body in place. Most of the time this burial grave thing are made by the excavation. To ensure everyone to know the clear truth. By sharing some of the scriptural facts and the historical evidence as well.
Once again understand that the English-Greek word for hell is, is an old word that consequently once served as a suitable translation of the Greek Hades, “hidden”, “cover” and it is also means “imperceptible” or “unseen.” Tartarus, Tartaros or Tachti is to mean deeper, lower, lowest or abyss. Our modern day English for hell, due to the corrupting influence of human tradition, “hell” has come to mean “the abode of the dead; the place of punishment after death [in which the dead are alive].” Here is another reason why and how the word hell have been misrepresented for many years from the word Gehenna as well. Remember I've mentioned about how the Temple back in 70 AD were destroyed? When the Romans conquered Jerusalem, tearing it apart block by block? This is where the estimated of over a million inhabitants were murdered and throw them into this set of fire garbage dump. Which is where it happen in the Valley of Hinnom (which also called "Gehenna"), outside of Jerusalem.
After 30 B.C.E., before the trouble of 70 B.C.E., the development of the so-called religious had grow largely to suited its purposes by unbelievers own way. Many instruction were added or change which was never instructed by MessiYah's word, including the myth of this hell-fire as well. Many Jews were forced to believe in their way or the laws, were murder and/or even were thrown live into this garbage fire dump. We must know from what MessiYah's had warned and taught that hell is incompatible with what our heavenly Father describes and why we should not believe the kind of hell-fire myth that many believe in today. It is a terrible fiction that was created a long ago and harder to believe it today. If it had been the central tenet of MessiYah's teaching, he would have told
his listeners about it! It would be a remarkable omission if MessiYah knew that the ultimate, only important choice a person must make in life is to believe in him or we could face the eternal death and omit it from his teaching. And yet in the book of Mark, the earliest good news manuscript, true to the MessiYah's words, MessiYah never talk about the hell-fire thing at all. The whole time he was referring about was that there was gonna be a torment place of death (it already happened a long time ago), the garbage dump was fire set on the top of the ground by the roman soldiers. This garbage fire dump isn't the torment abyss or eternal hell-fire, but the myth of the eternal torment underworld HELL-FIRE which the paganism had for years been mistranslated and mix up the education system.
In Mark's statement, MessiYah was delivered a strong point about eliminating things from one's life that limit spiritual growth, and about the destruction that would come to Israel if the people didn't change their ways. The physical realm is superfluous, he implies, and if your hand, foot, or eye limits your spiritual growth, you're better off without them because your body is going to end up (figuratively) where there were a pile of dump along with the dead bodies, and what's was going to be left? He echoes the admonition in Matthew 6:19: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal." Everything, including the body, is going to end up in this garbage dump. Only what a person achieves spiritual is eternal (Mark 9:43-45).
This Gehenna name was also the place known from a deep narrow ravine from south of Jerusalem, where some Hebrew parents actually sacrificed their children to the Canaanite, Ammonite god, Molech, during the time of the kings (II Kin. 16;3; II Chron. 28:1-3; cf. Lev. 18:21; I Kin. 11:5,7,33). Thereafter it was deemed to be cursed (Jer. 7:31, 19:2-6). MessiYah used it as an extreme on the continuum from entering the kingdom of , the Creator ONE through spiritual growth and suffering what the body will eventually suffer: being thrown on the garbage dump to be burned. It was a striking metaphor for things that are worthless and for the fire and destruction Israel would experience, but again MessiYah never mentions a word "hell” the way the so-called church world used to portrayed it today. By the time the King James Version of the Bible was translated in the early seventeenth century, the so- called church had already developed bad doctrine about hell and fictional descriptions had been written by Dante (a poet, not a theologian), so the translators just translated the name of the garbage dump (Gehenna, or "valley of henna") as "HELL" in vain way.
In the Book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse two and three, where this scriptures verses sometime lead us wrong about Tartarus. How this sound specifically to states where some of us may look at this place as the Tartarus (as hell-fire). Where the dark angels will be reserved for judgment etc.. Remember how Tartarus actual mean lowest or Abyss. It would be more logic scene after it say they are being held there for thousand year, before they being release. Why would they not being burn or kill there, it is because there is no such lava fire thereafter. Another example like in Luke 8:31, why in the world would the Legion of demons begs MessiYah not to be send to the ABYSS also? "The Beast" of Revelation, will come up out of the Abyss (Revelation 11:7; 17:8) as it mention there too. Why wouldn't they simply not said don't destroy us but only said don't send us in the abyss place like a jail time?
There something interesting I like to mention about EARTH, as why it is important for us to understand about this word EARTH? Let look in the book of Genesis about the creation days, reader like you may learn how the earthly land was created. How the ground of dust like dirt is called earth (Gen 1:6). This word earth could help us better understand more about the dept of the earth. Please look into the book of Ecclesiastics 1:4, in this verse, it will correct us about this earthly land, as the country, the field and how the ground will abide forever etc...
Here are two evidence how it explain why this bottom pit or abyss place is not the name of the place but simply mean (the deep down under the ground dirt), depth of the earth:
Psalm 63:9 “But as for them who seek my life for ruin, they will go into the depths of the earth'.
Psalm 71:20 'You who have caused me to see many troubles and evils, you will again revive me. And from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up'.
Farther more about the word of abyss, the Greek-English to Hebrew word: 'תְּהוֹם' 'tehom' or 'teh-hom' nor 'teh-home', from some information in Strong's Hebrew: 8415. The middle Englisc word 'abissus', or Late Latin 'abyssus', and Greek 'abussos' mean the bottomless: a-, without; see a-1 + bussos, bottom, the same for the Hebrew's word tehom?
Now let talk about the “Lake of Fire” which is one of the biggest misunderstanding and most difficult subject for most of us to understand. "Lake of Fire" is only found in four or two verses of the Revelation book, why is that? At the end of explaining about this part, the Lake of Fire will be clearly know as what will happen here on earth in the future end of sin. How this Lake of Fire is not where the abyss fire-pit or the dark undermine earthly vault of pit, where Satan will be chain stuck there for 1000 years. Revelation book of chapter 20, have two separate point which take in place of later time in the future. How Satan and other will be in this "Lake of Burning Sulfur" by day and night forever and ever". Some other version scriptural book say “Pool of Fire” instead of “Lake of Fire”.
Since we already know where this abyss place taken place, we must understand where is this lake of fire taking place in the future? Once again, let read what the Revelation 20:14 reads:
"And the death and hell (the grave) were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
Noticed how it said the death and hell (or the grave) were being thrown into this Lake of Fire, why in the world would hell being thrown into the lake of fire as hell? Does that make any logical sense. If the grave is more likely the proper word for what “it” being thrown into the lake of fire, why than would the grave being thrown in the Lake of Fire also? It may-be a logic sense that the earthly grave thing will be no more. It will be destroyed as well? The last thing to noticed, why does it seem simply say that this “Lake of Fire” is the second death! Why does it seem tricking to understand how or what will causes this second death to occur?
The only way I have in mind is about the prophecy of the last day event, which one I remember how Noah was warned about the coming great flood. According to how the story explained in the book of Genesis (Bereshith) chapter 6 to chapter 8, when earth was once full of troubling (sinful) people. They refuse to obey the heavenly Father's way and He had to allow the living thing on earth to be destroyed with this great flood of water. Noah’s time with this great flood is not the only time that he had allow destroyed the sinful people. He had allow the city of Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed because of how the city people were full of evil (2 Peter 2:4-6 and Jude 7).
I remember how the holy scriptures did mentioned about the future destruction that hadn't happen yet. This destruction will take place very soon; just like what happened during Noah's times, but it will take place by the great fire. First, I like to point out what the Book of Mark said in chapter 13, verse 31-32: Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Noticed how it said that the heaven and earth will pass away? This scripture statement is speaking about the prophecies of what will happen in the future. Now keep in mind about the great flood of Noah's time and how the heaven and earth will pass away. Let look into 2nd Peter (Kepha Bet) 3:1-13, where this one explain about how MessiYah, our Savior will return one day. It also explain how the last day would be like.
This is now, beloved ones, the second letter I write to you, in which I stir up your sincere mind, to remember the words previously spoken by the set-apart prophets and of the command of the Master and Saviour, spoken by your emissaries, knowing this first: that mockers shall come in the last days with mocking, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all continues as from the beginning of creation.” For they choose to have this hidden from them: that the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by the Word of , the Creator ONE, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. And the present heavens and the earth are treasured up by the same Word, being kept for fire, to a day of judgment and destruction of wicked men. But, beloved ones, let not this one matter be hidden from you: that with YHUH one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. YHUH is not slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward us, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of YHUH shall come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise and the elements shall melt with intense heat and the earth and the works that are in it shall be burned up. Seeing all these are to be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart behaviour and reverence, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of , the Creator ONE, through which the heavens shall be destroyed, being set on fire and the elements melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we wait for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells.
There is another strong bold message about the last day in Malachi chapter four, verses 1 – 6:
“For look, the day shall come, burning like a furnace and all the proud and every wrongdoer shall be stubble. And the day that shall come shall burn them up,” said YHuH of hosts, “which leaves to them neither root nor branch. “But to you who fear My Name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings. And you shall go out and leap for joy like calves from the stall. “And you shall trample the wrongdoers, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” said YHuH of hosts. “Remember the Torah of Mosheh, My servant, which I commanded him in Ḥorĕḇ for all Yisra’ĕl – laws and rightrulings. “See, I am sending you Ĕliyah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of YHuH. “And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with utter destruction.”
Before we get any further explain with the evidence why the scriptural book never teach HELL as the torment place of the eternal fiery pit of fire. We first need to focus about our modern language and the teaching system that change our way of life for many generations. This means our scriptural book had translated change too. How I know this, this is because I have looked into the written history. A history where it will give us facts into the truth. Just as how it will be profitable for us. For doctrine reproof and for correction. Even the scripture book of 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 also mentioned to do that as well.
There are many historical past how the empire ruler had destroy or over take the foreign kingdom. Whatever they were their enemy or not. The ruler want to be the king of the world. Forcing the civilized people to obey and believe their pagan education system and their goddess. How I've learned how there were true believers whom have failed to live by the heavenly way instead of the worldly way. How it had influence people to live by the dark worldly way because of how they fear the king instead of the Creator Father. Most people may not see or realize how much damage have we done to brainwash people by this worldly education system we have today.
Many of our English scriptures aren't 100 percent correct, because of how the pagan (false believers or the Religious people) have been translated change or damage the true doctrine of what the original manuscript really say for many generations. Some translator may have mistakes but the bottom line is, we are told (according to the scriptural book) that we have no authorized to add or remove (change) the scriptures words etc... (Revelation 22:19-20). Since the former prophets and MessiYahs chosen apostles were the last authorize anointed people who wrote the manuscript books.
Earlier, I've mentioned how there were many difference empire times and how they took over kingdom to rule over the world and force civilized people to believe and obey their pagan education system. Did you know during the Roman (Catholic) empire time, by their so-called Church's world, they have been inventing so many false scriptural words into their own great error so-called Bible on purpose to rule and fool their own kingdom? Did you also know that the Roman also were the one whom had destroyed the Israel’s Temple back in 70 AD, because they want all believers to obey their law and belief? I would suggest rechecking this fact by investigate the historical truth.
Now let get into history of our language. Farther back in the Indo- Europeans time, before the multiplied language had exist, Hebrew language had somehow evolved over years as Greek did too. This can explain a little why the translator may made mistake in translated the language from Hebrew to whatever foreign language, because the translator didn't know well enough about the ancient Hebrew's family language. Theologian throughout time, not only the word were translated wrong, some of the correct word were not originally definition correctly as well. Today many of scriptural books are just unclear copies after copies that had been translated often in error and in vain. Because of how each of us has been suburb and/or separated from each one another based on different belief; this is how we've created the damage and confusion.
The early holy manuscript were originally first written in ancient Hebrew language before other relative Hebrew language exist. Before also the Greek nor Roman language. Did you know the ancient Hebrew was more like our English than how the modern Jewish Hebrew, Syriac Aramaic or the Arabic language is today? It true, here the lesson I have learned. Ancient Greek language were called the Paleo-Hebrew language which is part of our family language. English came from the Anglo- Saxon, the Englisc language. Which came from the three groups of tribes (The Angles, the Saxons, and the Jutes) who came into the Great Britain's land from Northern Germany in the 5th Century. The Englisc language which came from after the Runic alphabet(s) language. They merged together and became known as the Anglo- Saxons. Their language was a Germanic one, closely related to the Old High German, Frisian, and Scandinavian. Speakers of modern German or Dutch will see many aspects of Anglo-Saxon that are familiar to them from their own languages. This is how some of our English scriptural words today had been changed the characteristic words that had been teaching people away from the clear truth.
More about our English language. The middle age English word “Helen” or “Hilen” as HELL. I've learned this very Old English word Helan actual mean “to conceal, cover, hide”. This is a very different definition word for HELL which most today believe? The Proto-Germanic language for *Helaną also means “to hide or stash” and the Proto-Indo-European *ḱel as well mean “to hide, conceal” as well. Dutch, German and Latin all also point out to me as “hide” or “cover, not to be seen”? Discovered all these wonderful evidences of HELL, how it really define to me, prove me something better what the scriptures book teaches about HELL.
I've also discovered to learned how the Webster's book of Third New International Dictionary said: "from 'Helan' to conceal," the word "hell" thus originally conveyed no thought of heat or torment but simply for a 'covered over or concealed place.' In the old English dialect the expression "helling potatoes" meant, not to roast them, but simply to place the potatoes in the ground or in a cellar. HELL was never mentioned to be used with fire or a fiery place of the fire pit?
There another evidence that help me better understand more about this so-called HELL-Fire idea and why people believe this hell thing is the abyss pit of lava fire. I've discovered few of the encyclopedia statement about this Hell-Fire idea somehow came from the terrible mythology Greek story. How it had eradicated from human consciousness into the wrong idea today. Somehow this ancient Greek mythology story have been influence people mind about this Zeus (Jupiter in Latin) who had imprisoned in Titans. This Latin-Greek Zeus, a monstrous race of what they recalled them the superhuman beings who had tried to overthrow the so- called gods of Olympus (Titanomachia) for subtract the precedence to the latter. Greece had been telling people that the Titans were so defeated by Zeus and other mythological characters imprisoned in Tartarus, according to their own vision, as it should mean the depths of the ground. This Tartarus is the Greek's belief, is somewhat explained as the dark abyss place which they say when dropping the heavy anvil there, it would take nine days and nine nights to the bottom pit where the lava hell-fire is? Yet, there is also another Greek name Tartar which was also sometimes used as a wrongfully synonym use for Hades, or the underworld in general, but especially to designate the place of damnation of the wicked after death. The influence of their own Greek word Hades somehow change the definition of hidden or cover to the abyss fire pit.
I've also learned about this odd "Sinners legends" by Greek story about Ixion, the king of the Lapiths, Sisyphus, king of Corinth, and Tantalus, mortal son of Zeus, were condemned to live for eternity in Tartarus. Subsequently, the word Tartarus was confused and treated as a generic definition of hell already with Virgil, Aeneid, divided between the underworld Tartarus and the Elysian Fields. While returning receipt Hope Moncrieff still indicates Hades imprisoned Theseus and Pirithous in Tartarus together. In this so-called hell place, they said about there were five rivers: Styx, Cocytus, Acheron, Phlegethon and Lethe, the water had the characteristic of the latter to lose his memory in those who drank it. The soul of the deceased who entered therein, after crossing the Acheron, was to pay a donation to the terrible Charon and reach the three judges Minos, Aeacus and Rhadamanthus which emit their verdict. Guarding the entrance of the underworld there was Cerberus, huge three-headed dog. The result of all this historical facts, is how the bad translator may or may have no idea about the mythological story, made the translator change and misrepresented the idea of hell by this bad Greek goddess word and it definition from Hades to Tararus mistaken. Since this Greece's word Tartarus, Tartaros or Tachti dose not mean the burial place but is part of their own paganism goddess word. However, Greece somehow damage their own word like Tachti, which supposed to mean lower, lowest or abyss but change into this so-called goddess abyss place of hell-fire.
Unlike how the troubling word in 2nd Peter 2:4 (Kepha Bet 2:4), said: "God (or , the Creator ONE) did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them in Tartarus (or Tachti), delivered them into the pits of dense darkness. To be reserved for judgment." This is not a clear or correct message, it one of the bad version of the scriptural book (or the Bible) that had already misrepresented the message because of how the word Tartarus was explained falsely as the abyss hell-fire. If we compare with many any other kind of the scriptural book, we would end up noticed how this signal word Tartarus or Tachti mean lowest. That it.
For example, the Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) does not have Tartarus, Tartaros or Tachti in this kind of scripture book but did have the word that said lower why?
"For if God did not spare the angels who sinned; on the contrary, he put them in gloomy dungeons lower than Sh'ol (Sheol) to be held for judgment,"
It is because LOWER is the correct defining Greek word for Tartarus, Tartaros or Tachti. It make a lot perfect scene of how the this message describe then how some other bad scriptural book used. This verse describe the place lower and darker than what the grave site is like. Another word, it describe deeper undermine earthly vault of pit that is greater and different from what the grave site apparently like.
False Doctrine Word of HELL
Dear reader, this document had been rewrite often for a better clarification statement. Because I am not a great writer. To share what I've learned about this word "HELL". From it definition and what exactly dose the scripture books (Bible) teaches of it. Because when I was growing up, teachers and parents had taught me about "hell" that are differs from what the scripture books actually teach. I realized many people today are not actually getting it right about this word HELL as the furious justment fire (Hellfire) where bad and evil one will end up going after death. Discovered that the scriptures verses actually point out hell as the GRAVE. There are reason why people are so confuse and wrong. The word HELL were mis-translate /mess up word it translate long ago.
During my childhood, I was taught that this HELLFIRE exist in a deep down hell-hole of the undermine earthly place. Where the wicked and Satan, along with his dark angels who are there. By the time I grew up in my early 30’s, I realized that this eternal fiery pool of fire does not exit until the last day. Realizing also, that the scripture book never mentioned or describes anything about the abyss eternal fire where Satan will end up chain there at all.
I hope you find everything what mention about the destruction of how the heaven and the earth will pass away? Because all of these true scriptural message serve to us as “an example” or “warning” for us what will happen.
“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.” Romans 15:4
According to what the book of 2nd Peter (Kepha Bet) 3:1-13 said, also what the book of Matthew 24:36-39 mentioned about the last day as well. It the meaning of the prophecy of the last day, the second death that will occur with fire to destroy the sinful nature on earth. According to how the book of Daniel 2:42-45 explain how the wickets will end up in this destruction of fire, is just as what the the lake of fire in the book of Revelation mentioned about. This mean our earth will be full of fire, like the great flood of Noah's time. That why it called it the Lake of Fire or the Pool of Fire! Don't worry, this earth will not end up ashes out. Earth very likely will be renew. To purify the world again, as the new earth.
This is not the end about HELL thing, there much more I must share. There another matter how many have the wrong common belief about how those who have died, automatically end up in heaven or being sent to this forever sulfurous agony fire got all this idea wrong. Those who read the scriptures may not realize or know know well enough about the state of the dead. The word 'SOUL' is the other matter I must explain the truth about it. Because this will help people understand that no one ever went to heaven or to the destruction fire yet. Many believe this word soul is an immortal spiritual thing that live inside the body and can release afterlife, that isn't the true meaning of soul after-all. Scripture never said or in a parabolic way to referral that SOUL is as an immortal spiritual thing.
There is importation connection between Matthew 10:28 and Luke 16:19-31, which explain and help us better understand why soul do not support to mean the immortal spiritual thing at all. I will detail about that after we first look into about the single phrase in the book of Ecclesiastes 9:5 that summarizes it teaching about the state of the dead: "The dead know nothing." See this also in Ezekiel 18:20; 1st Corinthians 15:22-23 , 51-52; John 3:13 , 16; Acts 2:29 , 34; Romans 6:23 and there are many other passages prove the death is nothing like the sleeping coma. That the dead will be resurrected in the future, which this also point out why no one has gone (access) to heaven yet! The whole point of this, the death simply do not experience anything afterlife. Meaning, no one had ever experience pain or joy nor gone to heaven anywhere MessiYah is after the person passed away.
Now let see the connection between about Matthew 10:28 and Luke 16:19-31. To help us better understand why no one in this so-called spiritual immortal thing had gone out of their body went to heaven or the destruction fire. To understand why no man can destroy both, the body and soul. The same explaining why Luke 12:4-5 mention to us why MessiYah said we shouldn't fear about those who kill the body cannot destroy the life of those who die. While man can destroy the “physical” but cannot destroy life which (the Creator who gave us the breath of life) can live again (is the results only in the first death [Hebrews 9:27]). Here what Matthew chapter ten; verse 28 stated:
And do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna..
What MessiYah is saying here in Matthew 10:28 is that we shouldn't fear of those who kill the body (physical, the flesh and bone) but are not able to kill the soul (the living of breath of life), but instead be afraid of the one who Created man, is able to destroy both soul and the body etc... Remember what the book of Genesis 2:7 explain about the creation of man? How the breath of life gone into Adam's nostrils. This mean the soul is not the body of any kind or the spiritual body at all. It the breath of life, like the key of life. This key (breath of life) have the ID that belong to the body to live on. No one can destroy that breath of life, which was created by the Creator Father.
If it come to fact you or anyone bring up to mention about about Lazarus and the rich man in the book of Luke 16. How to believe that Lazarus is with Abraham in heaven right now and the rich man is in the suffering place which many called it the hell place? Some people do not realize this scriptural message is the parable message. The bottom line is, MessiYah isn't really teaching that Lazarus and Abraham is in heaven now. There is a technique reason why we have this scriptures message in illustration form parable way. When MessiYah's disciples asked him why He was paralleling about Lazarus and the rich man, He answered, “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of , the Creator ONE: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them,” Mark 4:11-12. WOW, that is a strong message.
So what the scriptures of Luke 16 really saying?
“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day” (Luke 16:19). Why did MessiYah speaking about the clothed in purple and fine linen, is it an important information to know about that part? Yes, it is important. Here is an individual accustomed to the high life which the rich man live like. His “purple and fine linen” reveals that he is of the royal, ruling class. He enjoys the best of everything and lives large. Within the tribe of Judah we find this man as the Pharisee, a middle and upper political class who lived well at the expense of others. To get the idea what kind of life did this rich man he like?
Now the next part said: “And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores” (Luke 16:20-21). The contrast between the two men or groups is salient. One lives sumptuously with all the creature comforts as well as prestige; the other like this man Lazarus is in the abject poverty, sickly, and would gladly partake of even the most meager of sustenance – scraps from the table of the wealthy man. It’s a study in contrasts.
Before we go further here, who is Lazarus? The name Lazarus is a Grecianized form of the Hebrew Elazar or Eliezer, meaning “El has helped.” Genesis 15:2-3 indicates who this beggar might be. “And Abram said, Yahuah , the Creator ONE, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me you have given no seed: and one born in my house is mine heir.” Although not of Abraham's offspring, Eliezer (Lazarus) is nevertheless a trusted servant in Abraham's household. In fact, Abraham even says his inheritance will go to Eliezer. But in Genesis 17 Yahuah promises to give Abraham and Sarah a son who would actually receive the inheritance. Eliezer returns in chapter 24, where Abraham is instructing this faithful servant about finding a wife for Isaac. He tells Eliezer not to go to the Canaanites but return to Abraham's country to seek a mate for Isaac. This Eliezer does. Isaac eventually receives the inheritance (Gen. 25:5).
So, in Luke 16:21, we learn that this dogs licked the sores of Lazarus. For some Jews, dogs are meant Gentiles, Matthew 15:22-26. So we learn that Lazarus is thrown in with Gentile “dogs” in their estimation. “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom” (v. 22). This is where some believe Lazarus had gone to heaven with Abraham but this scripture clearly did not say heaven at all but bosom? Into Abraham's bosom.
Speaking of death, however, the Pharisees would say in their common idiom that he sits in a favored position known as “Abraham's bosom”. If Abraham were in heaven the time MessiYah was still on earth, it should be easy to verify. His “obituary” is found in Genesis 25:7-9: “And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. Then Abraham gave up his (breath of) life, and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years; and was gathered to his people. And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre.” Abraham was buried and “gathered to his people.” If Lazarus is “in Abraham's bosom” then he, too, would be buried in the cave of Machpelah in the field of Ephron. Both had not yet up in heaven.
Many still mistranslated or misrepresented about this because another important lessons about how many of us forgotten about who have only access to heaven where MessiYah is now. Because I have to tell you this, Enoch and Elijah haven't access where MessiYah is. There is a expressions more about heaven we must understand. Did you know there is 'third heaven'? According to 2nd Corinthians 12:2, this scripture will help us better understand why no one have gone to this 3rd heaven where MessiYah is now. Look also in John 3:13 and even how not King David had access in heaven according to Acts 2:34. Still today, King David have not yet gone to heaven yet. Because he is not worthy to be among of the Firstfruits (114,000) of the resurrection with MessiYah which occur in Matthew 27. This dose not mean that the 114,000, Firstfruits had gone to 3rd heaven. I will explain later where they may be.
The main thing is, Lazarus couldn't possibly be in heaven where MessiYah is or how the rich man was able to communicate with his brothers after death while MessiYah was still on earth speaking about this statement. How can Lazarus or the rich man able access to any level of heaven until the resurrection day when MessiYah had not rose up to heaven yet?
Here a lesson we must understand about the communicate of the death is no such thing. Leviticus 19:31 warned us not to be deceived by (such) mediums and seances that give a different impression like how Luke 16 explain? This was all MessiYah's parable teaching that isn't a real thing.
All dead of the past and present people who are in the grave are mention to wait until the resurrection day, when MessiYah's return to earth. The death do not know how long they have been a sleep in their grave or even experiencing any sense of feeling or though as what I've recently mention about Ecclesiastes 9:5.
“For if we believe that MessiYah died and rose again, even so them also which sleep [are dead] in MessiYah will , the Creator ONE bring with him ... For the Savior Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of , the Creator ONE: and the dead in MessiYah shall rise first” 1st Thess. 4:14, 16
Matter fact, there something I want to share about what Paul wrote in 1st Corinthians 15:13-19, is that if there had been …no resurrection of the dead, then not even MessiYah (himself) has been raised. And if MessiYah has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain etc...
A little more explaining etymology of the word ‘Heaven’. The English word “heaven” comes from the Old English heofon which simply meant “sky”. Examples of word-use (Old English): Heofon-heáh, “sky-high”, heofon-fugol, “a bird of the air”. But, heofon (just as its later form “heaven”) was used of “the skies” also in the meaning “God’s dwelling”. In the Hebrew and Greek texts of the holy scriptures, the most common words for “heaven” are:
In the Old Testament, the noun shamayim (Hebrew and Aramaic). Just like the English word “heaven”, even shamayim meant “sky”, but was also used as a reference to God’s dwelling.
In the New Testament, the Greek noun ouranos (often in plural, ouranois), and various related forms of that word. Even ouranos meant “sky”, but was also used as a name for God’s dwelling.
Singular or plural – ‘heaven’ or ‘heavens’? Sometimes, the Hebrew and Greek texts use a singular form, translated as “Heaven”, and sometimes a plural form, “the Heavens”. This appears to be a matter of mere semantics, so that it lacks significance whether it is plural or singular, “Heaven” or “the Heavens” (“sky” or “the skies”). (Some English bible-versions at least partially preserve in their text the plural form where the Hebrew and Greek texts have that, but many do not).
The concepts ‘first heaven’, ‘second heaven’ and ‘third heaven’. In the Bible, the word or concept “heaven” is used in different ways – as a reference to the sky (the atmosphere) where the birds and the clouds are seen (which some call “first heaven”), and as a reference to the more distant “heaven”, that is, the space where the sun, the moon and the stars are (which can be called “second heaven”), and also, as a reference to the dwelling of God (“third heaven”). As to the location of Heaven (God’s abode) – the simple facts are that we do not and cannot know where it is located. I have the reason to believe that the 114,000, firstfruit are in the second heaven. The same for how Moses, Elijah or Enoch been taken to heaven, which isn't in the 1st or 3rd heaven but in the second. Since we are in the first level of heaven, where the atmosphere sky we breast the air.
The continue of Luke 16:22: “The rich man also died, and was buried.” Both beggar and the rich man died and were put in graves until the resurrection day. Death comes for both rich and poor, just as it does to animals, Psalm 49:12. The question is, is the Rich Man gonna end up in this destruction fire at the last day? In Luke 16:23 does have the part the time after resurrection of the rich man (at the second coming of MessiYah, 1st Thes.4:15-17). “And in the grave the rich man lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in the bosom of Abraham.” This kind of passage, remember how I've explain “the grave” is the right translation of the Greek word for hades, commonly rendered hell in the New Testament. The Savior said in this verse 22 that Lazarus was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. This is the same expression how MessiYah used in Matthew 24:31, when He said He would send His angels to gather the elect in the first resurrection just before the Kingdom of Yahuah is established on earth. Lazarus had been accounted worthy of that first resurrection mentioned in Revelation 20:6 and the rich man didn’t.
According to MessiYah's prophecy in Luke 13:28, many will suffer when they are shut out (not allow to enter) of the paradise. “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the new kingdom of , the Creator ONE, and you yourselves thrust out.” Obviously the rich man was not found worthy to rise in this first resurrection and be in the Kingdom of Yahuah. This mean the rich man and other who are not worthy to enter the paradise, will end up stay on earth. They may as well end up into this destruction fire which the whole world will be flood of fire, according to how the Revelation chapter 20, Malachi chapter 4 or 2nd Peter chapter 3 explained about the last day.
Paul clarifies the meaning of the promise given to Abraham and those who live by the same faith that Abraham exhibited. Being in “Abraham's bosom” meant being in a close relationship with him in a preferred status. In Galatians Paul tells us, “Know you therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that , the Creator ONE would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the Good News unto Abraham, saying, in you shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham” (Gal. 3:7-9).
However, there a chance that this beggar maybe one of the first faithful (one of the 114,000) who had resurrection on the event after MessiYah had died on the stake. After the thousand years of Sabbath, when the rich man is brought back to physical life in this second resurrection day, Lazarus is already in the position far off from where the rich man would be in. Lazarus and Abraham would already gone to this paradise and will be in this new kingdom of new earth (after the earth is completely purify by fire).
There is one more alarming problem, I like to add here. Since our English language today had end up mix up with the lie, there is one improper translated name. The name of our heavenly Father whom most people called him God, Jehovah or Jesus. Did you noticed how I often rather called the Savior as MessiYah? MessiYah's true name is more likely Yahusha. I no longer called him JESUS or God. I also wouldn't call the ONE who created the heaven and earth God or Jehovah but YHUH or YAHUAH. Since many of the discovery truth I have learned, I realized that our giving name of the Creator, Almighty ONE and MessiYah, our master isn't Greek-English name but the ancient like Hebrew name. Remember what the laws said, we're not to add or removed (change) the laws and that also go for our heavenly Father's named forever. We have been calling our Creator Father the false pagan name the wrong way for years.
I hope this whole document article of HELL, Somehow would give some help why this hell thing or the abyss gate of pit is not the place of the destruction fire, which many of us had got this whole idea wrong about Hell-Fire.
The simple truth about this bad translated word of “Hell” is the state of the burial grave. Which the proper word for English is the GRAVE.
I, Philip Pouliot urge everyone to get the truth out about this, we together must better be more careful and understand what the holy scriptures book really teaching us and why it is also important for us to ensure one another the clear truth.
