Eternity and those Murderers etc


And these shall be reunited with there physical bodies they lived in while upon this earth and because of the evil deeds they did throughout their lives by their own willful choices and evil desires shall be thrown alive into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone where they Shall / Will be tormented [ purhaps in their thoughts /consciences], day and night in the very presence of the Holy Angels Forever. think of all those Murderers such as the Bundys of this world of which there are still many roaming the earth committing unspeakable evil to other human beings. the list of the lost and their crimes are many according to the final judgement of Revelation, Man often changes Gods laws or softens them and even in our own days legalizes what God clearly has taught as being wrong and evil in His Sight, but in the end God will be the Judge of all judges whoever sat upon seats of earthly thrones making judgements over others wether for Good or evil. on hindsight i often think to myself that Murderers should never have been born into the earth knowing the evil they would inflict on other human beings, but sadly we dont have that authority or foreknowledge unlike God does, even so as Jesus has already spoken of the likes of Judas , he will wish /desire that he were Never Born at all.

And these will go away into eternal punishment…

The absolute idea of eternity, in regard to the punishment of hell (comp. Matthew 25:41), is not to be got rid of either by a popular toning down of the force of αἰώνιος (Paulus), or by appealing (de Wette, Schleiermacher, Oetinger) to the figurative character of the term fire and the supposed incompatibility between the idea of eternity and such a thing as evil and its punishment, any more than by the theory that the whole representation is intended simply by way of warning (according to which view it is not meant thereby to throw light upon the eternal nature of things, but only to portray the κρίσις, i.e. the cessation of the conflict between good and evil by the extinction of the latter); but is to be regarded as exegetically established in the present passage (comp. Matthew 3:12, Matthew 18:8)

The original word translated here as “punishment” means torment, or suffering inflicted for crime.

In all these places it denotes anguish, suffering, punishment. It does not mean simply a “state or condition,” but absolute, positive suffering;

into everlasting punishment—or, as in Mt 25:41, “everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” Compare Mt 13:42; 2Th 1:9, &c. This is said to be “prepared for the devil and his angels,” because they were “first in transgression.” But both have one doom, because one unholy character.

He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. Daniel 12:9

But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.” Daniel 12:13

the extreme end of the present period,—i.e., reckoned from Daniel’s standpoint, the period ending with the fall of Antiochus,—when the resurrection of Daniel 12:2 will take place, and the age of never-ending blessedness (Daniel 12:3) will begin.

Daniel was now ninety years of age, at least, and so could not expect to live much longer: and the angel here tells him, that after his life was ended, he should rest in peace with the righteous, namely, with respect to his soul; (compare Isaiah 57:2; Revelation 14:13;) and that at the resurrection, foretold Daniel 12:2, of this chapter, he should obtain a share of that inheritance which is reserved for the faithful servants of God, and which shall be actually conferred upon them at the conclusion of the times here specified, Daniel 12:12. Observe, reader, our time and days, yea, and all time and days, will soon have an end, and we must every one of us stand in our lot at the end of the days. In the judgment of the great day we must have our allotment according to what we were, and what we did, in the body, and we must stand for ever in that lot. It was a comfort to Daniel, and it is a comfort to all the saints, that whatever their lot is in the days of time, they shall have a happy lot in the end of the days. And it ought to be the great care and concern of every one of us, to secure a happy lot at that period; and then we may well be content with our present lot, whatever it may be, welcoming the will of God, in all things and at all times.

For thou shalt rest – Rest now; and perhaps the meaning is, shalt enjoy a long season of repose before the consummation shall occur. In Daniel 12:2, he had spoken of those who “sleep in the dust of the earth;” and the allusion here would seem to be the same as applied to Daniel. The period referred to was far distant. Important events were to intervene. The affairs of the world were to move on for ages before the “end”‘ should come. There would be scenes of revolution, commotion, and tumult – momentous changes before that consummation would be reached. But during that long interval Daniel would “rest.” He would quietly and calmly “sleep in the dust of the earth” – in the grave. He would be agitated by none of these troubles – disturbed by none of these changes, for he would peacefully slumber in the hope of being awaked in the resurrection. This also is such language as would be employed by one who believed in the doctrine of the resurrection, and who meant to say that he with whom he was conversing would repose in the tomb while the affairs of the world would move on in the long period that would intervene between the time when he was then speaking and the “end” or consummation of all things – the final resurrection. I do not see that it is possible to explain the language on any other supposition than this. The word rendered “shalt rest” – תנוּח tânûach – would be well applied to the rest in the grave. So it is used in Job 3:13, “Then had I been at rest;” Job 3:17, “There the weary be at rest.”

And stand in thy lot – In thy place. The language is derived from the lot or portion which falls to one – as when a lot is cast, or anything is determined by lot. Compare Judges 1:3; Isaiah 57:6; Psalm 125:3; Psalm 16:5. Gesenius (Lexicon) renders this, “And arise to thy lot in the end of days; i. e., in the Messiah’s kingdom.” Compare Revelation 20:6. The meaning is, that he need have no apprehension for himself as to the future. That was not now indeed disclosed to him; and the subject was left in designed obscurity. He would “rest,” perhaps a long time, in the grave. But in the far-distant future he would occupy ills appropriate place; he would rise from his rest; he would appear again on the stage of action; he would have the lot and rank which properly belonged to him. What idea this would convey to the mind of Daniel it is impossible now to determine, for he gives no statement on that point; but it is clear that it is such language as would be appropriately used by one who believed in the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead, and who meant to direct the mind onward to those far-distant and glorious scenes when the dead would all arise, and when each one of the righteous would stand up in his appropriate place or lot.
