Because God cannot lie all one needs to do is follow His instructions in Proverbs Chapter two for wisdom and knowledge with understanding.
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
How do you take those words from God? Are you deeply involved within your heart seeking and searching? If you are not properly seeking, and not properly searching, you shall never find His truth in this life. Only with the right mind set on humility and the right tools needed can you find hid treasures. Let’s use just one piece of silver that by seeking was found.
“And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”
Now, you as one who considers themselves wise in God’s words know what Matthew is saying, right?What is everlasting punishment? Eternal suffering in hell, correct?
Why is it that when many young teenagers are given a book called Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with instructions to find hell and report on it, all will all come up with the same report that says hell is the grave? Yet with all the wisdom of men that is foolishness unto God, they come up with eternal torture with barbequed babies and everyone who does not accept Christ!! But now if you take some gruesome murderer that rapes and buries little girls alive, but accepts Christ in prison with his last rights prior to execution he will live happily ever after for all eternity. Is God that little ignorant and that cruel in your mind of wisdom?
Allow me to just pause right now for a word of wisdom. If you’re carnally minded you are already lost and confused as a babe in Christ, so please just retire because all that I write is strong meat for those that are of full age, and by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil with truth and non-truth. We are going to discuss far more than just Strong’s. We will look at mistranslations, misinterpretation, adjectives, nouns, context, Latin, Greek, literal, and whatever needed.
Let us first examine perish from Gods point of view for a clearer picture of truth that shall teach you meanings that you never before noticed in His words.
In Luke chapter thirteen, Christ is talking about sinners that died while warning those whom he was talking to with the words;
I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
That whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.
Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption.
Perish is cessation of life. To be fully destroyed and dead. So sinners that have perished are very dead, and not being tormented in the burning flames of hell for all eternity that’s just a figment of your mind in God’s truth. Just by chance if your one that will just say they are waiting for judgment, what’s to judge? The temperature and how many worms will crawl into their eyes while their screeching in agony beyond words for trillions upon trillions of eternal years?To me, anyone who could categorize God to be a God of torture definitely has one very shallow and carnal mind.
Only through diligence with efforts and prayer through being humble will God lead you to His truths that you’re searching for as hid treasure.
“Everlasting punishment” is a mistranslation among many to be found throughout the words of God. And this particular one in my own heart totally belittles Our Father and Majestic God of everything seen and unseen. In actual truth it is completely beyond my deepest thought how anyone that claims the love of God could place him in thee category of a ruthless, cold blooded, sick mind that enjoys torturing billions for all of never ending eternity. That my friends, is not God, but rather only filth and lies that have been forced into disobedient and prideful minds that have become good at absorbing untruths even with scripture to prove what is wrong.The words that read;
“These shall go away into everlasting punishment” should read “these shall go away into age-long pruning or age lasting chastisement.”
Continue for understanding.
The most important part of studying Gods word is to gain what is right, and what is wrong within wording, and that is because just two words can change everything about who implies them. In other words we have a loving Father and God who is full of grace, love, kindness righteousness and promises that He keeps. But when His words are not properly translated, we out of nowhere have a ruthless god or torture with billions already screaming and billions more on their way to the god awful pits of hell full of children to the elderly in screeching pain and agony beyond comprehension of the human mind to even begin to grasp.
And that is how you love our Lord God? God is love, is torture love?
As a mistranslation and misinterpretation, it is one which has satisfied man since the original Greek was translated into Latin. The mistranslation is of two words: "everlasting punishment", and when put in the context of the sentence, the unfortunate result is this:“These shall go away into everlasting punishment.” However, what is should say in originality is:“These shall go away into age-long pruning” [or]“age-lasting chastisement”
