The Lake of Fire is meant for Israel. 

Deuteronomy 29:23

The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur—nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, which the Lord overthrew in fierce anger.

Admah and Zeboiim were the little towns outside of Sodom and Gomorroh, which were burned up with the larger cities when the sulfury fire of God fell from heaven in judgment. 

Sodom and Gomorrah were two of five cities referred to in Scripture as the Cities of the Plain. From references to the “plain of the Jordan” (Gn 13:10), “the Valley of Siddim (the Salt Sea)” (Gn 14:3) and Abraham looking down to see the Cities of the Plain from the area of Hebron (Gn 19:28), it is clear that the cities were located in the vicinity of the Dead Sea. 

Since the mountains come close to the shore on both the east and west, the cities must have been located either north or south of the Dead Sea. 

The Dead Sea is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel … The Greeks called it Lake Asphaltites (Attic Greek ἡ Θάλαττα ἀσφαλτῖτης,) 

So. 

It is also known as the Lake of Fire when the 5 cities surrounding the lake was rained with fire. 

However. 

When you read this. 

Deuteronomy 29:21-24

The Lord will single them out from all the tribes of Israel for disaster, according to all the curses of the covenant written in this Book of the Law.

Your children who follow you in later generations and foreigners who come from distant lands will see the calamities that have fallen on the land and the diseases with which the Lord has afflicted it. The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur—nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, which the Lord overthrew in fierce anger. All the nations will ask: “Why has the Lord done this to this land? Why this fierce, burning anger?”

This is talking about Israel. 

It is because of this. 

Deuteronomy 29:25

And the answer will be: “It is because this people abandoned the covenant of the Lord, the God of their ancestors, the covenant he made with them when he brought them out of Egypt.

They did this when they said. 

John 19:15
But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”

“Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked.

“We have no king but Caesar,” the chief priests answered.

They abandon their covenant by paying 30 pieces of silver as prophesied in Zechariah and rejected Jesus and made Rome their new god. 

That was how Israel prostituted herself to Rome the Beast in Revelation. 

You will also see here how Jerusalem was called Sodom. 

Revelation 11:8

Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified.

The Lake of Fire is not meant for you. It was for old covenant Israel.

  1. Thanks so much for this post..I am learning a lot through your blog and feeling a lot of relief! But I have one verse that bothers me..the one in Rev 20 saying that the sea, death and Hades gave up their dead, and anyone not found in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire? What does that mean? Were Old Testament people that had died somehow brought back and cast in the lake of fire in AD 70? Does it just speak figuratively of the Jews alive in AD 70? Please help! I don’t want to think of dead people being brought back, only to be put in some fiery place!
    And that brings me to one more question. In your way of thinking, what is the Second Death?

    • Dear Sparrow. The events in Revelation 20 happened in AD70. Its actually an analogy of what happen when Jerusalem and the temple was destroyed. It has nothing to do with the raising of dead people and all that. What it is actually about is the end of natural Israel and the beginning of a supernatural Israel which is neither Jew nor Gentile. Which you are part of. Add me on Facebook. We can talk then.

  2. Thank you so much for helping me sort this out in my mind. I have much to unlearn so I can understand these verses in a new way!
