A Short Study of Revelation 14:11

Revelation 14:11
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

This is one of those passages found throughout the Scriptures declaring that punishment in hell is forevermore.

We read also in Matthew 25:46, “And these [the unsaved] shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

You see, the punishment for the unsaved is no less everlasting than the life of the believers is eternal.

Hell is not annihilation!

When God says that sinners shall perish, He is not saying that they will simply be burned up to a crisp and come to an end. It is eternal damnation. Their torment goes on for ever and ever.

This verse concludes by reiterating that the ones who will be judged when Christ returns are all those who worship the beast and his image, and have received the mark of his name. In other words, all the unsaved. Only those who have truly trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior can escape the horror of Judgment Day. Be sure you are among them.
