LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…`If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned’…” (Jesus Christ, in John 15:6, the Holy Bible).
WRONG, MIRIAM, THERE IS HELL: With due respect, I think that Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago got her readings of the Bible---and of the Roman Catholic doctrine now known as “Vatican 2”---wrong when she said there is no hell, and that any references to “hell” should be taken to mean merely as a figure of speech signifying man’s separation from God.
There is a place called “hell”, Miriam, and even science attests to that. The Philippine Daily Inquirer, in its issue (online at www.inquirer.net and print) of June 24, 2010, reported on sightings by human scientists of this “hell”. Here are some parts of that article, proving beyond doubt that hell exists:
OSIRIS, A PLANET OF FIRE: “Astronomers glimpse distant planet's lethal moods, Agence France-Presse. June 24, 2010. PARIS—A planet named after ancient Egypt's Lord of the Dead is a place where human beings would be simultaneously boiled, poisoned and ripped apart by super storms, astronomers reported on Wednesday.
“The distant world, orbiting a bright star in the constellation of Pegasus 150 light years from Earth, is known officially as HD 209458b, but has been nicknamed Osiris, the god of the Egyptian underworld. The label is especially fitting, given insights into the planet's climate system reported in the science journal Nature…”
REALITIES OF HELL: That scientific finding confirms Biblical verses on the reality of hell. The first verse is Isaiah 66:24 and the second is Revelation 21:8. Both of these verses say there is hell, and both say they are places of eternal fire for those who do not believe in God. Isaiah 66:24 says however that aside from being a place of fire, hell is at the same time a place of eternal worms.
On the other hand, there are verses that talk of fiery hell, right here on earth, when Jesus, our God and Savior, returns. One verse could be found at Malachi 4:1-2, while another one could be found at 2 Peter 3:10-11. Both of these verses say fire will consume the earth and everything in it, the sky, the sun and the stars, leaving out only those who died and live for Jesus.
SOLAR STORMS AND SOLAR FLARES: HARBINGERS OF HELL: On top of these, there is also a batch of Internet postings about Nibiru, a planet that is reported to be approaching the nine planets of our Sun’s solar system, causing huge gravitational pulls that, at the proper time when it has come really near the planet Earth and the Sun, would cause solar flares or solar storms to leap out of the Sun and reach even the Earth.
Do these solar flares and solar storms coming out of the Sun and reaching even the Earth represent the realization of the account of the end of world under 2 Peter 3:10-11? For those interested, here is what 2 Peter 3:10-11 says: “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire…”
Malachi 4:1-2, a book of the Old Testament, has something similar to say: “… `Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,’ says the Lord Almighty. `Not a root or a branch will be left to them’…”
