The Truth about Hell that the Devil Does Not Want You to Know

Hell is a place of torment, both physical, and emotional, and spiritual. The emotional torment of Hell is described in Proverbs 5. In this section we read about a foolish man who committed adultery and fornication with a strange woman (a harlot).
Destruction is not until the person ceases to exist. Destruction in Hell is everlasting (vs. 9). And, it involves being separated “from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power” (vs.9). But, they shall be “tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb” (Revelation 14:10). God is omnipresent (everywhere at once) and His angels are allowed to look at Hell, but God has cut Himself off from the people in Hell.
Besides being physical and emotional torment, Hell is spiritual torment in that the human spirit-soul that God created to exist forever is separated from God (who is the source of life and joy and peace and true love) not for a thousand years, not for a million years, but forever.

Revelation 21:7 says this about those who trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and who know His name and who abide in Him: “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” These people will not go to Hell. They will go to Heaven to spend eternity with Jesus Christ, their best friend.
Good works cannot save us. James 2:10 says: “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5.)
