So is it Rob Bell or Hell’s Bells?


The notion that a loving God would allow people into  a place of destruction, damnation, or fire, which is eternal, or which will not end, is beyond a finite mind to comprehend.

Yet I know that it’s not God’s will for anyone to go there. The place of everlasting fire was prepared, not for humans, but for the devil and His angels.

Matt 25:41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Interesting enough, though this verse tells us that everlasting fire was not prepared for humans, humans will enter it due to a choice of habitually obeying or disobeying God.

I guess that everlasting life or destruction is a matter of man’s freedom to choose?

The great preacher, G.K. Chesterton once remarked, “Hell is God’s great compliment to the reality of human freedom and the dignity of human personality.”

The purpose of this entry though, is not to talk about heaven or hell, Rob Bell, universalism, will a loving God send people to a place of eternal damnation, or the teaching of ultimate reconciliation.

I am not here to try to convince or debate with you.

I simply want to discuss Strong’s Word # <166>.

Strong’s Greek Word # <166> is αἰώνιος or  “aionios.”

The word “aionios ”is an adjective. An adjective modifies a noun.

In this instance, “aionios”, modifies such nouns as life, fire, or damnation, in the verses which will follow.

“Aionios” adjusts them to mean eternal or everlasting in nature.

The Greek definition of Strong’s Word # <166>, “aionios”, is as follows.

1) Without beginning and end, that which always has been and always will be

2) Without beginning

3) Without end, never to cease, everlasting

I would like to prove that Jesus, the Apostle Paul, the writer of Hebrews, and the Apostle John use the word “aionios”, both to describe eternal life, eternal damnation, judgment, or fire.

They did not discriminate between life as eternal, while punishment or separation from God, as not.

The same word, without prejudice, from the original Greek scriptures, is freely interchanged in the matters of life, separation from God, damnation, punishment and fire.

All of these verses use, “aionios”, Strong’s Word # <166>.

Mt 18:8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting <166> fire.

Mr 10:17  And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal <166> life?

Mr 10:30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal <166> life.

Joh 5:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting <166> life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Joh 6:40  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting <166> life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:47  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting <166> life.

Joh 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal <166> life to as many as thou hast given him.

Joh 17:3  And this is life eternal <166>, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Ro 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal <166> life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

2Co 4:17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal <166> weight of glory;

2Co 5:1  For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal <166> in the heavens.

2Th 1:9  Who shall be punished with everlasting <166> destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

1Ti 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting <166>.

1Ti 6:12  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal <166> life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1Jo 2:25  And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal <166> life.

1Jo 3:15  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal <166> life abiding in him.

.Jude 1:7  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal <166> fire.

Re 14:6  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting <166> gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

Let your conscience be the truth barometer.

Today, I am not attempting to convince you. We are not children who need to be banged over the head.

I come to you, highly intelligent people, as an exegetical teacher of the Scriptures.

There was a “ hard rock and roll” group in the 70’s named AC/ DC.

Even in my “druggie” days, I found AC/ DC too harsh, too crude, and too scary for my liking.

Their songs, “Highway to Hell”, or “Hell’s Bells”, were a bit much when I was high.

Yet, we see from their lyrics that AC/ DC knew that it was not God pulling people into hell, but Satan Himself.

And Satan can only do that when we give him the flexibility by free will.

So is it Rob Bell or Hell’s Bells?

Hell’s Bell’s by AC / DC.

“I’m rolling thunder, pouring rain

I’m coming on like a hurricane

My lightning’s flashing across the sky

You’re only young but you’re gonna die

I won’t take no prisoners won’t spare no lives

Nobody’s putting up a fight

I got my bell I’m gonna take you to hell

I’m gonna get ya, satan get ya

Hells bells

Hells bells, you got me ringing

Hells bells, my temperature’s high

Hells bells

I’ll give you black sensations up and down your spine

If you’re into evil, you’re a friend of mine

See the white light flashing as I split the night

Cos if good’s on the left then I’m sticking to the right

I won’t take no prisoners won’t spare no lives

Nobody’s puttin’ up a fight

I got my bell I’m gonna take you to hell

I’m gonna get ya satan get ya

Hells bells

Hells bells, you got me ringing

Hells bells, my temperature’s high

Hells bells

Hells bells, satan’s coming to you

Hells bells, he’s ringing them now

Those hells bells, the temperature’s high

Hells bells, across the sky

Hells bells, they’re taking you down

Hells bells, they’re dragging you down

Hells bells, gonna split the night

Hells bells, there’s no way to fight

Hells bells”

For those who wink at sin or say that they are not sinners, above is a chart of the longevity of the first generations of humans, as sin was beginning to permeate the race.

Sin, is missing the target of what God has designed for humanity.

This chart shows us why Jesus Christ paid such a frightful price to restore mankind from the utter toxicity of sin, that it, the portion of humanity who wants restoration. Not everybody does, because if they do, they want it on their terms, and not God’s, which is non-negotiable with Him.

This also demonstrates why universalism, or saying that hell is not real, would depict that there is nothing wrong with sin, since everyone regardless of what they do, all share the same destiny.

This would also expose Jesus Christ and what He did as the biggest idiot and the greatness madness on planet earth.

Our bathing water in Aram Kenya, where there are no wells.

If There Is No Hell, There Is No Heaven, And We Are All Screwed.


There can’t be a heaven if there is not a hell.

If there was a heaven but no hell, then love does not exist.

For true love is based on absolute freedom of will.

God gives humans an absolute freedom to choose or not choose Him.

The horrifying consequences of sin show our infinite ability to choose God or not choose Him.

If we would have chosen God, there would be no death, sickness, or wars.

But the reality of these demonstrates our infinite power to choose and the infinite love of God who gave us that power.

Pure love is not tyrannical, it does not create robots, and it gives to the other utter freedom to choose, even if the outcome is dreadful.

If there was heaven but no hell, then every person would be God’s Stepford wife, either forced to follow Him or programmed by Him to do so.

God does not live in hell. So if hell does not exist, then everyone would be forced to follow God, and end up where He is, even against their will.

If this is so, then God is hate.

If heaven exists, there must be a hell. The reality of both demonstrates God’s immense love for people. It proves the infinite power of the human will, given to us by God, for us to choose our infinite destiny. This is pure love. This is the love of God.

G.K. Chesterton once remarked, “Hell is God’s great compliment to the reality of human freedom and the dignity of human personality.”

If Rob Bell is right and others like Him, then God is not be pure love, for at the end of all He dictates human will and destiny to His side of things.

For there to be love, there must be heaven and there must be hell and the unmitigated power of the human will to choose one or the other.

There can’t be a heaven if there is not a hell, and we are all screwed.

Why Is Deception Like A Planet?


Matt 24: 4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Look continually to yourself that nobody will “planetize” you.

I love the word “deceive” in the Greek. It is the word “planet”.  In Greek mythology, planets were called wanderers or the wandering ones. If you look at an astronomical chart you will see that our nine or maybe ten planets circle or “wander” round the sun. Thus, this suggests the word deception. An individual whom is being deceived aimlessly wanders away from the truth. The word planet is also used for “error”.

In the United Sates we see the prince of the authority of the air using technology to “planetize” people.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Mind you, technology is an awesome tool which greatly benefits humanity and the work of the kingdom of God. The devil uses technology in the lives of those whom are not paying attention to their walks with God to cause them to planetize or wonder from the truth of the Word of God. Whereas Africa gets hit by a demon of poverty, the USA is getting wacked by a demon of distraction.

I am amazed at how many Americans the devil has planetized to cause them to look  down at their technological gadgets. Many are consumed with self-entertainment. Everybody, everywhere, is always looking down. How can you see what is ahead of you?  Fewer still are looking up to heaven, from where their true helps lies.

When you get on an airplane to go to east Africa, you will find many looking down as well.  They, however, are looking down at their Bibles! This is a phenomena for many Americans to see!

It was Watchman Nee who said, that you never save a drowning man until he goes unconscious in the water, lest his kicking and flaying will cause you to drown as well.  One must wait until he goes unconscious and then pull him out of the water. I think that America is a nation that will have to go unconscious before it gets saved.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Ephesians 2:2  tells us that the efforts of the devil is to energize in the lives of those whose to stubbornly and obstinately reject God. This verse not only talks to non-Christians, but to Christians as well. This supports my supposition that a person, or for that sake a nation, will open up doors on itself for the energizing of the devil if it becomes stubbornly defiant and arrogant towards its creator.

America is on a slippery slope towards this. As a matter of fact, the energizing of the devil upon our land is quite evident. In the 50’s America was the head of the world. Today we are descending to become a tail.

Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Many for will be coming upon the name of me, saying I am the anointed and will planetize many.

The word “deceive” in verse 5 is in the active voice. This means that deceivers will actively planetize unassuming people who are not paying attention to themselves and their relationships with God.

2 Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

For the mystery of lawlessness, or what is void of all law, is right now energizing, until the one who has the power to detain and keep it in check even at the present time, is from the midst becoming.

This complicated verse has been interpreted in different ways.  I would like to highlight some of the most prevalent points. A mystery is something that is hidden or that lives in the darkness of secrecy. A mystery must be revealed, since it cannot be accessed through our physical senses.  A mystery once totally veiled is now progressively revealed.

At the moment that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the mystery of iniquity kicked in. Men in those days lived to be over 900 years of age. The progressive revelation of the mystery of iniquity has eaten up into the lifespan of mankind throughout the centuries.

This mystery of iniquity or better said, the absence of all law is active today in our generation and continues to unveil itself until the consummation of this age, when Jesus Christ comes to establish His new kingdom.

In just over one generation, from the 1960’s to the present, we can see the progressive revelation of the mystery of lawlessness in our world.  TV programming is just one aspect of it as the filth of bad language so naturally flows through the mouth of actors. Many times I close the door to my office as not to hear verbosity that truly offends me, and this emanating from innocuous family oriented TV programs. Forty years ago, not even one single of these filthy words would be dreamed of being on TV.

The mystery which is being revealed and planetizes people into more and more lawlessness will probably culminate in the anarchies of societies.  Whereas, nations in Africa are welcoming the gospel, western nations such as the USA are rejecting it. It won’t be long until we perceive so-called third world countries arising to be heads as the richer western nations are becoming tails.  I think that America is a humpty dumpy, sitting on the wall.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

And then will the Unlawed one will be uncovered whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth and will render useless and nonoperational with the epiphany of His presence.

This verse obviously talks about the Antichrist. The prevalent thing to notice here is that the Anti-Christ a man whom is void of all law, obviously a figure who thrives on anarchy, will be uncovered at a set season.  For an anarchist to be adored by the world, it must have also embraced anarchy.  I was reading yesterday, that a new form of terrorism being executed in Europe is promulgated by anarchists.

It does not take much to see the mystery of lawlessness, or better said anarchy, at work than in those who today contest that the legitimacy of the constitution is not prevalent or foundational to our country.  The function of the mystery of lawlessness can be seen in all of those who want to strip foundational premises which have supported the beneficial growth of nations.

The voiding of the constitution if it were to succeed will bring anarchy. We must see with the eyes of the Spirit and perceive that the prince of the authority of the air is attempting to ram the mystery of anarchy at full speed into America. Where there is anarchy, another type of government can step in.

As Christians we can sit passively by, then die, and leave this mess to our children, or we can pray and fast and refuse to planteize from the truth of God’s word, no matter what comes.

Wherever the manifestation of Christ is, there is His work of making non effectual or non-functional all that is sin. This is why it is so important to spend time in the presence of the Lord Jesus.

9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Whose presence is in accordance to the energizing of Satan (diabolos/ the one who hurls or throws accusations) with every ability, signs and wonders found in what is pseudo.

The word for “lying” in the Greek is pseudo. Something pseudo is a falsehood, a sham, something spurious.  What is pseudo, does not have to be entirely false. It just needs to contain enough half-truths to cause people to planetize from the truth.

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And with every seduction, guile, and deceitfulness of doing what is not right in the eyes of God.

Every disobedience towards God brings guile and deception as it seduces you.  This mystery of anarchy is energized in all of those that without an agape or unconditional love for the Word of God do not heartedly welcome it into their lives. The Word of God must be loved and welcomed, there is no other way!

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

And through this act of unwelcoming His Word, God sends them “ an energy of planetizing” for the purpose of them believing what is pseudo.

I can’t think of a more convicting verse probably the whole Bible.  For those who obstinately reject God in their arrogance, He allows the devil to energize in their lives. This type of energizing is an activation that will cause people to wonder aimlessly into error for the express purpose of believing what is false.

We cannot blame God for this. God did everything in sending His only Son into the world to save humanity. If people choose to reject God and mock Him, they open up a door into their minds and hearts for the demon that administers the energy of planetizing to cause them to aimlessly wonder.

12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

In order those might be judged who choose not to believe the truth but rather take delight in sin and disobeying God.

The $100 K Gold Rolex


“I am giving you a $100 K gold Rolex watch, now take it and wear it!”

“If you don’t, though the Rolex is yours, it will be like it never belonged to you, and it will gather dust, and you will die, and the watch will sit on your night table forever.

So it is with the eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Jesus is God’s $100 K Rolex.

You see, God is a one watch wearer. He is simple, humble and unpretentious! He is not like us who are into “stuff.”

The Rolex is there for your asking. It sits on every person’s night stand. It is beyond precious and priceless, and above everything which money can buy.

You need the watch to live in God’s eternal home. The watch is the membership into eternity.

When Adam sinned, everybody lost their watch. Now God is reoffering it again.

If you choose not to take it, well, you acknowledge that you don’t want God’s Rolex, God, or to live in His mansion forever.

That’s what hell is! It’s the piece of estate in the downtown ghetto of outer darkness that you chose, not God, because you reject His $100 K Rolex.

You still have time to seize that Rolex, but it can only be grabbed and worn on earth.

Humanity fights about the watch, tries to break it, spits on it, and stomps on this gorgeous, gorgeous piece of jewelry.

Some don’t like it because they wanted one that was platinum.

Others don’t like watches, they only like rings.

Yet others are angry with its design and wished that God would had thought up something different, or had many watches for many people, instead of one that fits all.

Gee, I don’t know why. I thought that everybody would want such a lovely thing!

I thought that everybody would be grateful to God for giving us back our long-lost watch.

They fight about not taking the Rolex, argue why not to take it, rationalize about maybe taking it on their death-bed, they run away from it, denounce it, and flee from it like if it had cudies.

Yet, God keeps on offering the watch free of charge to anyone who wants it.

You know, God is cool and loving, He never gives up! But, the watch must be worn while you are down there.

I thought that humanity would be happy to get the watch, but that’s not the case.

Especially, the countries who own many other watches complain about this one.

It seems that the ones who have little jewelry are grateful to own the greatest of all jewels.

Bottom line though is that without this $100 K Rolex you won’t be allowed in heaven. The Rolex is the membership and your way in through its pearly gates.
