Job Chapter 20

By admin On May 10th, 2019

Job 20:4  Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
Job 20:5  That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
Job 20:6  Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
Job 20:7  Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
Job 20:8  He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
Job 20:9  The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

 

One very vocal radio Bible teacher insists upon the millennia-old doctrine of Eternal Torment. But in order to cling to this old Catholic church-doctrine, Bible teachers must ignore or spin away the many verses and passages which explain Hell as the grave.

.

Truly, the entire world has been thoroughly groomed to understand Hell according to the ancient Babylonian version of Hell, being an actual place in which conscious humans will be tortured throughout all eternity.

.

But for those who wish to re-examine this misunderstood doctrine, gaining a balanced understanding, the Book of Job must be one of the places in which the Babylonian Eternal Torment doctrine is demolished.

.

Now this website has highlighted Job, Chapter 3, which says…

.

But Job is not finished with this subject. Because Chapter 20 has more to say regarding Hell being the grave…

.

Now, the Bible does refer to Hell as a place of torment. But that torment is not in some underground torture chamber, nor is it eternal. Listen…Pro_15:24  The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

.

This above verse is speaking of Hell in terms of being this world.

.

Well, there are various devotionals which discuss this truth, and the Reader is encouraged to go through the various Eternal Torment devotionals to gain a proper understanding.

.

Nevertheless Job, Chapter 20 repeatedly speaks of the fate of the wicked in terms of nothingness.
