For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the day of judgment. And God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment. So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood. Later, God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. He made them an example of what will happen to ungodly people.”
2 Peter 2:4-6 NLT
The word for “hell” in the Greek (“Tartaroo”) comes from the root word “Tartarus”. This word refers to the bottomless abyss that God has ordained for the devil and his minions. God did not exempt the angels who rebelled from His judgment. These angels are being held in chains. “And I remind you of the angels who did not stay within the limits of authority God gave them but left the place where they belonged. God has kept them securely chained in prisons of darkness, waiting for the great day of judgment.” Jude 1:6 NLT. This judgment will come at the end of the millennial (1,000) year reign of Christ (see Revelation Chapter 20). God judged the original population of the earth by a flood. (See Genesis 6). He rained fire and brimstone (burning sulfur) upon Sodom and Gomorrah. (See Genesis 19). God is most serious about His promise to judge the ungodly. His righteousness compels Him to hold us accountable for the wickedness. No matter what the culture today tries to say or do, God’s judgment is still coming to the wicked. This time it will rain fire and hailstones, from heaven, upon the earth (see Revelation 16). Sexual immorality, Homosexuality, Lesbianism, Transgenderism, Bisexualism, hatred, jealousy, bitterness, rage, lying, drunkenness, and more. These are all unacceptable to God. The only two options are:
1. Repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation will be freely given. (Acts 2:38; 16:31; Romans 5: Whole Chapter; 10:8-10).
2. Reject Jesus and be condemned eternally (Matthew 25:31-46; John 3:18-21, 36; Romans 1:18 - end of the Chapter; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9). Which will you do?
