The Hebrew word for HELL in the Bible is “sheol” = a state of rest… unconsciousness… sleep… not some burning forever place of torture which the Papal (anti-Christ) System developed!
In Job 14:13-15 (ESV) we read:
“13 Oh that you would hide me in (the grave) Sheol, that you would conceal me until your wrath be past, that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my service I would wait, till my renewal[a] should come. 15 You would call, and I would answer you; you would long for the work of your hands.”
Was the prophet Job here praying to go to a place he would burn in pain for eternally?
No, certainly not! How could people ever get such an idea?! Back in Constantine’s day, Church leaders wanted to keep the people in the churches through the fear of hell doctrine! For many centuries people thus, have gone to Church for fear of this doctrine. But what does the BIBLE really say in the original Greek and Hebrew? The video and the content of each of the booklets share below, explains this well.
Job was praying to go to a place of rest where he would be out of pain until GOD would raise up everyone in the resurrection.

Throughout the ages Satan has convinced people of lies! Hell is one such doctrine he has blinded the masses of humanity on. His first lie about death was already in Genesis 3:4,
“But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not surely die.'”
Since Adam and Eve’s disobedience, is mankind dying? Yes!
The Bible explains that eventually the condition of death itself will be destroyed forever.
Please consider the following video explaining all about HELL. We hope and trust you will receive much blessings from the words of Br. Michael Nekora as we refresh the mind upon Divine Words of Scripture.
“The last enemy to be destroyed is death.” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
When the thousand years of Christ’s reign with the His “bride” shall be completed and after the final battle of Gog and Magog (Revelation 20:7-15) and after all evil is destroyed there shall finally come the glorious time when “the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away” (Revelation 21:3-4).
