Question 11 -Hell Freezes Over During the Millennium
Dear Reader, if you are a Pre-Trib Pastor, the Question of Hell really freezing over probably never really crossed your mind. In fact, whoever the Reader is, you probably thought "Hell Freezing Over," was just a silly way of saying, "It's Impossible," or, "That'll Never happen."
     We actually have several Blogsites that show from the Bible exactly Hell's location. Peter gave us the most compelling evidence."But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved against the Day of Judgment and perdition (damnation, destruction, die, perish) of ungodly men" (2Pet.3:7). Then in Verse 10, Peter explains exactly when and where the fires of Hell will punish those "ungodly men." "But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat; the earth also, and the works that are in it, shall be burned up" (Vs.10). The Scofield Bible Footnotes correctly place this event at the end of the Millennium. The Bible evidence we share here telling when and where Hell will be is just a small sample of the Bible evidence. Our most comprehensive Blogsite on this is, " Final Punishment of the Wicked." Also see, "Earth Destroyed by Fire."

Hell Freezing Over
If we accept what Peter said about Hell being this earth, our planet, and how Hell occurs at the end of the thousand years John prophesied about, then we need only to see if any of God's Prophets tell of a time when this planet becomes completely "Frozen Over." And, the Bible has many such prophecies. Pretty much all Christian Denominations have concluded that Planet Earth will be a Grand Paradise during the Millennium with Jesus as the King of the World. Pre-Trib calls this Christ's Millennial Kingdom, and says that when the Bible speaks of the "Kingdom of God," the reference is to a Millennial Kingdom here on Planet Earth. However, every time the Bible uses the term, "Kingdom of God," it always says "Forever." Two nights before He told Pilate His Kingdom would NOT be on this planet, Jesus told His Disciples where His Kingdom would be located. He said He was going to Heaven to prepare a place for all of His Redeemed People (See Jn. 14:1-3). We have a Blogsite called Satan's Millennial Kingdom in which we list all of the Scriptures detailing how, during the Millennium, earth will be Satan's Bottomless Pit. We show from Scripture that Planet Earth will have billions of dead bodies scattered everywhere and the Earth will be uninhabitable. 

As an added note here, it is not just Christianity that promotes some kind of Earthly Millennial Kingdom. Almost all other world religions teach that there will be a wonderful world leader come to earth and unite the world in a long period of peace and prosperity. Let's ask ourselves a question. If the Bible explains that Earth, in an uninhabitable and devastated condition, will, for a thousand years, be Satan's Bottomless Pit, can we not be absolutely certain that Satan knows this? And, if he knows it, could it be that he has helped all of the World Religions developed these, "Earthly Kingdom of Peace," notions? If all world Religions of the world agree on something, chances are it is false and Satan probably had a hand in it. If Jesus planned to come back to earth and set up His Kingdom here, why would He say the following; "Let not your hearts be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's House are many Mansions (rooms); if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself that where I am [in Heaven; in His Father's House], there ye may be also" (Jn.14:1-3)! It is true that Pre-Trib accepts and endorses these words of Jesus. They claim He is revealing the Pre-Trib Rapture here. Christians that do not believe in a Rapture have decided that Jesus was speaking about how a believers "Soul" goes to Heaven when he dies. It takes only a casual reading of the Passage to know that death is not what Jesus was talking about. If every major religion on earth opposes and denies these words of Jesus, and they actually do, and only a very, very few believe what Jesus said, what should we do?
A careful look at all of the Bible Verses dealing with Earth after Christ's Second Coming will show that earth will be a frozen Planet for the next 1000 years.

Satan's Bottomless Pit FROZEN!?!
JOB 38:30 "The waters are hidden as with a stone, and the face of the deep (tehhome) (abyss) is frozen."

The word "deep" in the above passage is, "tehhome" and is the Hebrew word for "abyss." In Revelation, the Greek word that King James translators interpret "Bottomless Pit," is "Abyss." So, Job saw the "face of the Bottomless Pit frozen," thus he was given a preview glimpse of Satan’s prison during the Millennium. Earth will freeze because the sun will not shine during that 1000 years. If there's no sun our earth will freeze in seconds.

JOB 41:31-32 "He (Leviathan) (Satan) maketh the deep to boil like a pot; he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep (tehhome) (abyss) to be hoary (covered with frost)."

Strong’s Concordance says "hoary" means "covered with frost." Job says, "one would think the (abyss) Bottomless Pit is covered with frost." Thus we see another picture of earth in its Bottomless Pit condition. "Leviathan" is Satan (Job 41:1)(See Isa.27:1). Job sees Satan wandering on a frozen earth when he saw a vision of earth during the Millennium.

Let's look at two visions from Isaiah and Jeremiah describing the Earth after the Lord's Second Coming. A large portion of these prophet's books are devoted to describing end times. 
"The Day of the Lord’s Vengeance"
"For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies; He hath utterly destroyed them, and He hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the hosts of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together like a scroll; and all their hosts shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and like a falling fig from the fig tree" (Isa.34:2-4).

"For it is the Day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof into burning pitch. And it shall not be quenched night nor day; its smoke shall go up forever (
for ages); from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it (for ages and ages) forever and ever" (Vss.8-10). "The wild beasts (devils; Septuagint) of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts (devils) of the island, and the satyr (demons) shall call to his fellow" (Vs.14).
Satan and his demons are calling to each other in their Frozen, Bottomless Pit. 

"Without Form and Void"
"I beheld the earth and, lo, it was without form and void (tohuw & bohuw); and the heavens, and they had no light [no sun; planet frozen]. I beheld the mountains and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at (by) the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger"(Jer.4:23-26).
Notice Jeremiah describes the whole earth being "without form and void." This is exactly as Genesis describes earth before God spent six days creating it. Jeremiah continues with words that describe Christ's Second Coming. For a much more detailed study into the condition of earth during the Millennium,we have a Blogsite called,  "Satan's Millennial Kingdom - His Bottomless Pit."  We've merely scratched the surface of Bible evidence showing the real condition of Earth during the Millennium here in this Blogsite. 

Dear Reader, please make this a matter of Prayer. If Satan is trying to deceive the world about End Time events, certainly we need to know about his delusions. God has promised to send His Spirit to all who truly ask, and He will!

Thank you SO much, Dear Reader, for your time and interest!
