I have come to understand there are 5 fires, but all are ONE fire that produces good.
(1)Gehenna fire (2) furnace of fire, the (3)unquenchable fire, the(4) everlasting [Gk; eonian/age-abiding] fire, and the(5)lake of fire.
gehenna the city dump which was kept burning always as even the bodies of criminals were burned there, hence better to cast your hand in there than to harm an innocent..
tartarus - also translated 'hell' but which is "darkness".. the angels who left their first place and are now in chains of darkness awaiting judgment.. in chains of darkness, not able to reverse their course, what with now being imperfect and imperfect cannot make itself perfect, even if they wanted to.. so they are chained to darkness awaiting the judgment/outcome
the idea that Jesus visited 'hell' while in the grave-which is the "lower part of the earth" (and the place of the dead is still the grave).. imo
I believe the verse says Jesus went via the Spirit and preached to those who were outside the ark while the ark was being prepared/built.. via the Spirit He preached / reached out to those who were going to perish in the flood..
The LOF we are told what it is.. the 2nd death, the second outside from God, from Life, from blessing..
Our God is a consuming fire.. He purifies all He touches.. He told Moses "tell the people to stay back from the mountain lest I break forth and consume them.. Critics have said this means 'lest I become so incensed with anger and hatred I break forth and slaughter them.. no, Moses face was aglow with the fire.. tell the ppl to stay back, lest they come to harm for my essence is as a consuming fire..
Then there is the fires which are fiery judgment / consequences and results - the wages/result of sin is death
War is fiery..
Man's splitting of the atom - (imo is) "He comes with angels and fire
" again natural results and consequences.. I believe when He returns it is to a fiery conflagration of man's own
doing.. A lesson to be learned, thus this allowing things to run their course.. for what is said to be the best teacher? perhaps I stray.. but man's splitting of the atom, to me, is a major one of the fires
and all that oil in the Middle East at such a time, when "armies surround Jerusalem" (just before His return).. seems to me to be bound to become a lake of fire if the split atom comes into play..
also at the surrounding of the holy city after the 1000 year reign and millennium.. oil ignited as LOF -- all natural results, except likely, the final one after the millennium.. (Rev 20:7-9)- https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=revelation%2020:7-9&version=TLB;NASB;NKJV;KJV;YLT
have I forgotten one from the new testament used to refer to a "fiery" 'hell'?
