What is hell like? – The attributes of hell

Many Christians don’t fully understand what hell is like according to the Bible.  I didn’t realise how bad it was until I watched Bill Wiese’s video and researched the verses he provided:

There is no water in hell. Why?  Because water comes from heaven:

Deuteronomy 11:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:

Hell is parch dry, as the story of Lazarus explains.

Luke 16:24 King James Version (KJV)

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.

It’s unimaginably hot and full of torment:

Revelation 14:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Brimstone is another word for sulphur.  Hell is full of fire and pungent sulfur.  Pretty much similar to the inside of an active volcano.

Proverbs 7:27 King James Version (KJV)

Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Hell is made up of chambers.  Bill Wiese (see video below) explains that a person will be in a chamber on their own.  You won’t see another human, just demons.

Psalm 88:4 King James Version (KJV)

I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:

People become very weak.  Why?  This verse explains:

Acts 17:28 King James Version (KJV)

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

In hell, people will barely be able to move because God isn’t there.

2 Peter 2:4 King James Version (KJV)

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

Hell is a dark place where there is no light.

Psalm 116:3 King James Version (KJV)

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

Hell is a painful place.

Matthew 25:30 King James Version (KJV)

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

According to Bill, it’s not so much weeping as constant terrible wailing from untold multitudes.

Mark 9:44 King James Version (KJV)

44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

There are worms that crawl over everyone that don’t die.

Hell (also called sheol) is a place of punishment
The lake of fire is a place of eternal destruction
A testimony of hell by an ex-mafia boss
Who is destroyed in the lake of fire?

ive been to hell twice and yes it is indescribably horrific but is not like anything that can be described physically all you need to know is its more painful than anything you can imagine and to do everything in your power to avoid going there. it take more than being just a moral person. you need to have a personal relationship with jesus chirst


[…] Now stop being angry.  Carefully consider the fact that the person who hurt us is probably going to hell where the flames do not quench and the worms do not die (what hell is like): […]
