Wesley's Notes for Mark 9:44


9:44 Where their worm - That gnaweth the soul, (pride, self will, desire, malice, envy, shame, sorrow, despair,) dieth not - No more than the soul itself: and the fire (either material, or infinitely worse!) that tormenteth the body, is not quenched for ever. #Isa 66:24|.


Discussion for Mark 9:44

  • Jim Kern for verse 44
    The fires of hell are real. Hell was prepared by God for Satan and his angels. All those that refuse to accept the atoning blood of Jesus in payment of their sins are also included in the same fate. When Christians die they receive a glorified body. An unsaved person also receives a glorified, eternal body when they die. After the great white throne judgment, at the end of the millennium, the unsaved will be cast into the lake of fire with Satan....forever. I believe each person in hell will be ***igned some kind of worm that also eats the flesh of the glorified body for eternity. Selah... think about that Ask Jesus into Your heart and life. He will come in and do something special with your life.
