What Does Hell Look Like? Why Did God Create It?

Hell is dark. It’s hot, and it’s demons-infested. But that’s only the desensitized and oversimplified version of what does Hell look like.

The Bible described it, and the witnesses who went there through near-death experiences, and were lucky enough to be back, confirmed it. (See the links at the bottom)

Some Christians were even led to Hell by God Himself, so that they can confirm the literacy of Hell with other Christians, and the unbelievers, that a biblical Hell does exist, literally.

Here let me give you some details about Hell base on reports from people who went there:

It Locates At The Center Of The Earth

Everyone who went there knew it was somehow inside earth. In death, you knew where you were going and why. Souls in Hell also have sharper senses than people on earth, which turns out to be a bad thing…

Jonah 2:6“the earth with her bars was about me for ever….”

Job 17:16They shall go down to the bars of the pit…

Matthew 12:40 so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Jesus went to Hell for three days)

Isaiah 14: 9,15 Hell from beneath is excited about you,  To meet you at your coming;Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

Ezekiel 26:20 then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of long ago. I will make you dwell in the earth below, as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the pit, and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living. I will bring you to a horrible end and you will be no more. You will be sought, but you will never again be found, declares the Sovereign LORD.

Hell is divided into different parts, from worst to least worst

Hell has many parts and chambers. There are fire pits of different sizes. The degree of torments varies at different part of Hell. However, Jesus told one of the witnesses that, “My sons, all the suffering on the earth concentrated in just one place is nothing, NOTHING compared with the suffering that a person has in the best parts of hell.”

It’s worth noting that Christians who ended up in Hell were suffering even more than other damned souls. In fact, hell bound Christians suffered the worst of Hell. Witness said that their torments were a thousands time worst than anyone else.

It’s beyond human comprehension. How can that be? If the best part of Hell is already that bad, how can anything be a thousands time worst than other parts of Hell?

Luke 10:13-15 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more bearable in the judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades.

Proverbs 7:27 they shall go down to Hell in the chambers of death

Extremely foul smell

Witnesses reported extremely foul smell in Hell. One of them said you can’t really breath, but you simply grasp for air like you have asthma and have to live with shortness of breath every single moment. The demons and the environment of Hell smell like sewer, putrid, bad eggs, rotten meat, burning flesh, sulfur, and the sum of everything on earth that smell bad being put together, and then times 1000. If you smell Hell with the earthly body we now have, you will die because it’s so toxic.

Smell Of Hell Is Worst than everything on earth that smell bad combined

Smell of hell is worst than the sum of everything on earth that smell bad times 1000

Rev 9:2 He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.

Demons are there to torture lost souls

According to the testimonies, the demons were quite comfortable with the environment of Hell, and they were addicted to torturing humans there. Hell is devil’s playground. There, Satan is the king of terrors (Job 18:14), and he tortures people at will.

The demons have twisted arms, rough skins, broken wings or wingless, foul smells, sharp teeth and nails, and they varied in sizes. They were once angels of God but they followed the archangel Lucifer (aka Satan) and rebelled God. Hell was created by God for these fallen angels. Hell was not originally prepared for human kind.

Matthew 25:41 … depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and his angels

Deuteronomy 32:22-24 For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest Hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase,  And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.  ‘I will heap disasters on them; I will spend My arrows on them.  They shall be wasted with hunger, Devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction;  I will also send against them the TEETH OF BEASTS, With the poison of serpents of the dust.

These fallen angels will soon suffer like the rest of damned souls, but their time is not yet. (Rev 12:12) So far, the Devil and his fallen angels were still having fun torturing people in Hell, and they are doing all they can to maximize the number of souls there by means of deceptions and manipulations on earth.

On earth, these demons can’t really touch us unless we invite them and give them legal right to influence us or even possess us. Even with severe limitations on earth, they have so far succeed in getting billions of people to ignore or resist God, and every second people are dying without Christ and they go straight into Hell.

Some thought when they died they were going to a good place. Some thought life was so hard for them and committed suicide. When they fell into Hell they found it was at least a thousand time worst than the all the worst things on earth concentrated in one place, but it was too late.

Never ending screaming, wailing, and gnashing of teeth

Most people find noises of whining, screaming, or of someone prolonging the last syllable of a word annoying, but imagine if you hear billions of people screaming!  The senses are sharper in Hell and the screams never end.

The wailing of billions of the damned should be mind shattering, but the mind of the damned will carry on, just like the body they inherited in Hell.

On earth, emotional tortures beyond a certain threshold limit causes memory loss and mental disorder, but in Hell, memory will be perfect; the suffering souls remember every chance that they could have accepted Christ while on earth, and things that they did or didn’t do on earth. If they try not think to about it, their conscience will speak to them and the demons will say it to them just to see them in pain.

Matt 13:42…throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Extreme heat

Hell locates at the center of the earth, where it’s hotter than the surface of the Sun, and the souls can feel it.

There are flames everywhere, and fire pits, large and small.

These hellish fire is unlike the fire on earth. It’s extremely hot, many times hotter than the fire we know. These fire can melt the flesh of the hell bound souls, but the flesh would grow back, and the process would repeat over and over.

Psalms 11:6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals; Fire and brimstone and a burning wind shall be the portion of their cup.

Mark 9:48-49 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’For everyone will be salted with fire.’

People are consumed by worms that don’t die

There are big worms everywhere. They survive in the hellish environment and nothing can stop them from devouring the flesh of the damned. They just keep feeding on the tortured souls, but the flesh would keep regenerating for them to feed on. The worms are inside, outside, and all over the body of the damned.

Isaiah 14:11 The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.’

Mark 9:48-49 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’For everyone will be salted with fire.’

There is pitch darkness

The place is pitch black. Pure darkness. No one has seen similar darkness before except the few instances that were recorded on the Bible (Rev 16:10; Exodus 10:21). The witnesses can see the suffering souls because of the presence of God. I don’t know if the suffering souls ever see each others, or if they can see the demons in ordinary time of Hell.

The lights from the flames are devoured by the darkness there. One of the visitors in Hell saw a large fire pit, but that merely lit up the skyline of Hell a little bit.

Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

Psalms 88:6 You have laid me in the lowest pit, In darkness, in the depths.

There is exhaustion for everyone, but no one gets to sleep

In Hell, the bodies of the damned are always exhausted, hungry, and thirsty, but because of the torments, they can never fall into sleep. Some have been there for thousands of years, without any sleep, water, and of course, food.

And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night… Rev 14:11

Pure hopelessness for those who end up in Hell

Everyone in Hell knew they were doomed forever. Some of the people have been there for thousands of years but they know they are not going to leave that place. On earth, you don’t really understand what eternity means, but in Hell the damned were given the knowledge and awareness of the absolute hopelessness of their situation.

Ezekiel 26:20 then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of long ago. I will make you dwell in the earth below, as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the pit, and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living. I will bring you to a horrible end and you will be no more. You will be sought, but you will never again be found, declares the Sovereign LORD.

Absolute fear at every moment

One of the witnesses has experienced shark attack before. He thought it was the scariest moment ever. But after he went to Hell, he found that the earthly fear was nothing, comparing with the fear in Hell. The scariest moment on earth time a thousand would be close to a single moment of Hell. There the souls experience this great fear all the time.

Job 18:14 He is torn from the security of his tent and marched off to the king of terrors

Isaiah 24:17 Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.  And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit, and he who comes up from the midst of the pit shall be caught in the snare; for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth are shaken.

Why Did God Create Hell?

First of all, Hell was created for angels, not for humans. ( Matthew 25:41)

Yes, that’s right. Angels fully knew what Hell was like, but still, one-third of the angels chose to rebel against God (Rev 12:4) and they knew they were going to Hell.

Since then they have become demons, and their archangel, Lucifer, became Satan.

Since they could not inflict harms on God, but they hated God with a passion, so they tried to hurt God’s darlings: the human race.

Now they couldn’t do it with brute force, and the first humans were given dominion over earth and everything on it. Back in those days, everything was created to be good. There was no death, no sickness, no aging, no “survival for the fitness” crap, and what so ever.

This was when Satan derived the most sadistic scheme ever that robbed humans of almost every inheritance as the rightful children of God. He tempted Eve with the forbidden fruit.

The forbidden fruit was the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Basically if a human eats its fruit, he will no longer need to fully rely on God, because he can distinguish for himself what is good or evil, albeit not the absolute and complete truth of what is really good and what is really evil. Only God holds all the truth.

Anytime we disconnect with God, we disconnect with the ultimate source of all goodness and truth, which makes us sinners.

Both Adam and Eve ate the fruits.

Now humans have become like rebellious teenagers after they ate the fruits. At that point humans became like kids who challenge everything that parents say and do only what they agree with, and they want to do their own things too.  Isn’t that what you and I are like to God? Isn’t that how every single human treat God today?

Since then we resist God at almost every single point of our life. Every time God asks us of anything our default mode is “No, why?”, unless God moves heaven and earth and shows us some miracles, allows us to go through trials and errors to see for ourselves how stupid our rebellions are, and gives us a list of evidences that are undeniable, we generally refuse to obey what God ask us to do. If God wins at the first round, the process will repeat again for the second round and the next round to come.

And there was only one thing that we were forbidden of in the beginning of history, but we went straight into it anyway! Of all fruits in the garden; Of all the wonders God created on earth; Of all the pleasures the pre-fallen world offered us; we chose that one thing that God forbidden us.

Just one thing, out of millions of other legitimate options, that we were not supposed to do but we did that anyway.

After the fall of men, Satan has become the father of all sinners, the god of this age, and the dummy “king” of the world

John 8:44 He [the devil] was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies

2 Corinthians 4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

Ephesians 2:1-2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.

Satan has come a long way to promote himself with these titles.

But only if men continue to follow him through ignorance of truth and disobedience to God.

Satan can do nothing to you if you are in Christ and choose to remain in Him. Even now, he can only manipulate the world through deceptions. He can do nothing unless human continue to sin and believe in his lies.

What Satan wants is to get more souls into Hell, where he has authority to torture and humiliate them at will. He hated us because we were created in the image of God.

But if you become a child of God, you will have the authority to resist Satan and his lies. You will inherit the authority and resources from Christ that can wreak havoc to the dummy kingdom of Satan.

Do We Deserve Hell?

Yes, because we are all sinners. (Romans 3:22-23)

You and I know how vile we really are. Sins make us so blind that we think we don’t deserve Hell. Sin is deceptive. The more you commit it the more you feel it’s okay (Ephesians 4:17-18; Hebrews 3:13)

The fact that humans don’t kill and torture each other in general was because there were possibilities that other people will fight back. For mutual interest, most people decide that we should have governments in place to help us not to hurt each other so much so that we have a reasonably safe society, and that, was out of self interest.

The fact that we act nice to one another was not because of pure love, but because of self-interest also. We have to be nice because that makes us socially acceptable. (That’s why most of us can act very badly and speak evil things against other drivers or pedestrians while we drive, because  we no longer worry about being socially acceptable)

If we were given power that Hitler or any historical dictator had, we would likely do things similar to what they did. We are all evil, selfish, vile, and self-righteous. The only difference was how brave, how competent, how deep we were able to carry out our evil desires and passions.

Humans are like worms, (this was how King David described himself in Psalms 22:6). We are all capable of devouring one another (Galatians 5:15).

However, we can choose to accept a new nature by accepting Jesus Christ.

If anyone refuses to get his nature replaced by the new one that is of Christ, he was in fact choosing to sin for eternity.

All sin has chain effects that affect others for eternity. An idle word from our mouth can create a huge damage for someone down the chain. (see Butterfly effect)

For example, we all remember how someone said something or did something mean to us when we were  child, and those words or memories stayed in our hearts and sprouted into bad fruits as we grew up.

Evil words that were spoken to us can make us kill, steal, lie, and hate, but those who spoke or committed them had long forgotten about it. And the perpetrators probably still think they are good and upright citizens who don’t deserve Hell.

I wondered how many killers ended up where they are because someone did or said something to them long ago. Maybe violence in the movies or electronic games influenced and inspired them? If so, should the movies makers and game programmers go to Hell just like the murderers? Should the consumers and retailers of those movies and games go to Hell as well?

What about the people who voted Hitler into office prior to the Second World War? Many people voted for Hitler because they blamed their poverty on a particular race (The Jew) and they wanted something for nothing. They put their faith on a person/government/ideology rather than on God. They believed the Nazi government was going to solve all their problems. It was pure greed, idolatry, and moral stupidity.

And only God knows how many bullyings the teenage gun shooters in U.S. high school shootings incidents had suffered before they committed the unthinkable.

We all had lied at certain point in our life. Do you think it’s okay? How do you know it’s okay?

One time a girl (my love interest at the time) lied to me when we discussed what she thought of me. She thought a lie would make me feel better about us not developing any further relationship. When I found out about the lie I was heart broken. I would rather be told the truth at once, because I was prepared for a rejection of the worst kind anyway, but now I was hurt badly when I found out the true reasons behind the refusal.

She thought the lie would make the rejection easier for me. In fact, it only made it easier for her. When I found out the truth, it was like I was being rejected again, but this time it was a rejection that I wasn’t prepared for.

The lie didn’t soften anything, but only added unnecessary pains. The night I found out about the lie I was so weak emotionally and spiritually and a serious temptation came out of nowhere, which almost overcame me. Later, this wound turned out to be a major factor to one of my major moral struggles that I had to go through for several years.

To this day she still hasn’t realized the damages her “well intended” lie has caused me.

When you think about it, every person broke the Ten Commandments and we all contributed to the hungers, murders, divorces, sickness, and all kinds of suffering on earth.

We have all broken God’s law and sinned

What should we do then? What can make us right with God again?

  1. sheila

    That was an awesome article!!! I read Bill’s book 23 minutes in hell and I listened to the testimony of the 7 teen ageers(actually only 6 of their testimonies) testimonies about hell!!! that was a real wake up call! I mean I believe in Jesus, God and all that you have written in this article but I had no idea of everything that goes on in hell!!! I really appreciate the fact that even thought there is pain and suffering in this life there is still relief from it… in hell there is never any relief!
    Thank you for taking the time to share yur findings.

  2. saikit

    Thanks Sheila! Someone actually thanks me for writing about Hell, instead of being totally scared by it. They were either too terrified or offended to leave a comment I guess. Make sure you also believe in Christ through faith, that you are saved only by grace, not work. However, repent each time if sinned is also very important to know about, which today churches hardly preach enough.

    I am glad to know that you don’t buy the Once Saved Always Saved false doctrine? (I guess) This deadly doctrine has caused many new born Christians to be easily tempted to choose a carnal way of life, instead of the spiritual. They never turned back again. There is hardly a single real repentance from most of them for many years of sinning. If we put the testimonies of hell and the reality of what we observe here on earth together, then we learn that we actually need to preach the FULL Gospel within the Churches!

    Keep in touch, subscribe to my newsletter or add me through facebook! thanks.

  3. It was a little scary for me. I am nine years old so…. The vidio was scary to. I am Christian I pray every night I go to church and I beleve in god and Jesus. Is that enough? You seem like a good person. I think you will make it. What if you die like five minutes after your birth? where would you go? Cause that’s what happend to my little brother. I want to know if he is safe or not. I have a Hindi friend. Will she go to hell? I have two friends that don’t go to church don’t pray that much and arn’t that nice.But they are Christian. What about them? Then I have another friend. She is so nice all the time. She is Christian she goes to church she beleves annd everything! Will she go to heaven? I hope I do see you there. +

  4. saikit

    Wow nine years old… You are very mature for your age, spiritually speaking. I am glad that you are searching for spiritual knowledge in such a young age. I believe your little brother will go to heaven. Some people have seen heaven while they are still alive, and they see a lot of children in heaven. Many of these children are aborted babies. Their mommies didn’t want them so they killed their babies (abortions), and these babies went to heaven.

    Carolani, you have much to learn. First thing is that we go to heaven because of God’s grace. Sometime we sin, but if we repent, God will forgive us. He will protect us and help us not to sin.

    When I was 6, I was scared of hell like you do now, but that made me seek for the truth. You can read the “About” page, and see how the fear of death and hell made me seek God. I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at that age.

    Your Hindi friend need to believe in Jesus Christ as her savior. She needs to become a child of God. If she doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ, then she still has sins.

    Carolani, which church do you go to? Are you in public school or are you home-schooled?

    Be careful, being good and nice do not necessarily mean a person is a real Christian. Going to church doesn’t mean a person is a real Christian. A real Christian really believe in everything the Bible teaches, and obey God. Read the Bible as much as you can Carolani. The Bible isn’t hard. God will help you understand it.

    John 3:16

    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    Do you believe in God’s Son Jesus Christ? If you believe in him you will have eternal life. If you sin, say sorry to God, and believe He will forgive you. If you have sinned, repent and try not to sin again, and God will help you to be good if you believe Him.

    I think you are very sincere. Please keep talking to me if you still have any question.

  5. Joe

    This is a sick and twisted article with no regards to quantum science or spirtual discernment. Hell is not a physical place…it is a Spiritual State of Being or Mind. I can show you several verses that show “souls leaving hell” in the Bible. Most of the Christians who get off on scaring others need to read the actual Greek interlinear texts. The five words used to translate into Hell into the NT are none which describe an eternal fire pit. I would get started on all the contradictions in this article (hell being pitch black yet being filled with flames…etc.) but it is a waste of time. Get in touch with your Spiritual side people. No omnibeneolent God would create an infinate suffering for those convicted of finite sins. It is not justified or true. Look for Spiritual Discernment from the living Word of God and quit listening to what Bible Thumpers testify. That is man’s testimony…not from the Spirit.

  6. hosanna

    that was scary but is it ok to want to be christian jjust because you dont want to go to hell or is that wrong? also how do you become christian i really want to know god

  7. Justin

    Say a person exudes kindness, compassion, and is an all-around decent human being. This person loves whole-heartedly and does the best he/she can to remain morally sound. This person above all else believes in the LORD/Jesus and doesn’t find it necessary to conform to any particular religion and believes that the LORD/Jesus doesn’t exist in the confines of four walls made of bricks but in the human body/heart/mind: What is to be said for them?

  8. saikit

    i don’t go to institutional churches, but I fellowship with like-minded Christians, and try to reach out to people who might be open to the Gospel. In fact, I believe a lot of church goers might find themselves in hell one day.

    However, a person who never bothered to try going to a typical church is questionable. I don’t believe one can see through every problems of institutional churches, or find out everything about what a true church should be, without spending some years of soul searching or church going.

    Just beware of self-righteousness or individualism. A true believer should be wary of Pharisees, but at the same time very cooperative with other Christians who are willing to build the true church according to the biblical standard. A loner who doesn’t fellowship with biblical believers isn’t a good follower of Jesus Christ.

  9. Justin

    Interesting conclusion but i have to disagree. One may find comfort in being in the company of like minded individuals but for it to be questionable if one opts not to? I find that to be a bit harsh.

    Here is what i find questionable: I personally have attended multiple so called “places of worship” but found them to consist of people who would rather judge than open ones heart. People who would rather I empty my wallet than preach the words of the Lord or read a select few verses from the bible but personally haven’t read it to it’s entirety.

    Here is why i find your conclusion harsh: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 which reads: “or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” For in the New Testament there is no building where God dwells in any special way but dwells in the body of the believers.

    If a Christian truely believes the human body is a temple why would it matter if one aknowledges/believes in/glorifies in a group setting or it is done alone? Because of the power in numbers mentality? Because of biased opinions (“To do so one must be ashamed”)? Or is it possible the most imortant relationship one has with the Lord is their own personal relationship and to put it simply: the group is simply the icing on the infinate mile high cake?

  10. Luke

    The Bible says pretty clearly that one mustn’t add or subtract anything to it, it tells us everything about hell that we need to know. Nowhere does it say Satan is lord of hell or has any power in hell, he is terrified of it like everyone else and only has dominion over the earth. Those “testimonies” from people who say they have been to hell I don’t believe for an instant.They were either hallucinating/dreaming or flat out lying for attention. Here’s a good link explaining it further: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Wolves/bill_wiese.htm

  11. Jorge

    How nice of God to make hell “quite comfortable” for demons like you said under “Demons are there to torture lost souls”. Either that or the person who gave the testimony is nutty as a fruit cake.

  12. Peter

    This is the biggest bullshit page i have ever seen. God did not craete hell, hell is simply the absence of god. And all these “witness accounts” are a joke. The john lennon thing actually made me laugh out loud. Seriously guys, grow up.

  13. Berry Grey

    Ok so I’m a paranoid agnostic atheist and was wondering if your version of the christian god hates people that hasn’t really done anything wrong other than what most people do but hasn’t really done much for others aside from ocasionaly putting a few coinsin a donation jar and also I was wondering if your god sends people to hell for not agreeing with his methods like senduping people to this fucked up place no one deserves, something I never got is why god doesn’t just make the sinners go through the same pain they caused to someon like if you trapped somone in a room of poison then you had to feel the same pain or more. I think that sounds reasonable.

  14. john

    for me, sometimes the worst people are bad Christians (including bad priests) and uneducated people who think they know everything.

    Anyway, I follow the Pope and some preachers from the US.
