Lake of Fire

Hey y'all, I was preparing the second (and final) installment of 'A
Focus on the Physical' last night, and just happened to be reading in The Book of Revelation, and 'just happened' to notice something interesting about those who were consigned to the 'Lake of Fire', which is the second death.

Rev. 21:8 says that 'the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death'. Then, over in 22:15, John records that, 'outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolators and whoever loves and practices a lie.' Notice the similarities between the two?

Based on this realization, I would venture to say that Gen. 3:22-24 is the typification of 'The Lake of Fire' in the OT, interesting, huh?

Are all those 'outside' the boundaries of the New Jerusalem (as per Rev. 22:15), i.e., The Church catholic, or invisible, in the 'Lake of Fire'?

In Christ,
Charles Shank
