People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 12:27


Heb 12:27 And [this word], Yet once more signifieth, etc. This means, says the apostle, that there is only one more shaking after the time of Hag 2:6. It is not a material, but moral and spiritual event. It began when Christ came and will continue until all that is temporal or erroneous be removed and only the eternal remains. Among the things removed is the covenant of Sinai.

    The Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10) The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

    lake of fire is mentioned 4 times in the KJV bible, read it in Revelation 19: 20 - Revelation 20:10 - Revelation 20:14 - and Revelation 20:15. As I see it, it is the eternal hell fire.
  • Avigayil
    I am curious about the final verse. The baptism of John (repentance) is of water, but the baptism of Yeshua is with fire - which is the giving of the the Holy Spirit. We see here that Yehovah is a consuming fire - which is His Righteous Judgment. So what is the lake of fire then? Is it a physical place, or simply refering to the Judgment of Yehovah?

    See 1 Corinthians 3:15
