(The Greek Deity) Not much as he had to kidnap Persephone, but not as bad as God of War portrays him. (The Greek Place) I would guess not too hot, yet not too cold. (Hell (which is also sometimes called Hades)) In different places there are different temperatures. Where Satan is, for example, it is very cold.
Hell as described in the Bible is not a place but an event much as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was an event. The purpose of the Lake of Fire spoken of in Revelation is the destruction of the results of sin i.e. a corrupted Earth along with death itself and of course all those who are in rebellion against their Creator including the Devil himself. The bonfire happens quickly and consumes everything and upon these ashes God recreates a new Earth where we all live happily ever-after
Hi Betty, I'm pretty sure Hades is the abode of the dead, the unrighteous dead. That's where they sleep till the judgement. Paradise is the abode for the righteous dead. But the Lake of Fire must be sooo hot, the only creation that can destroy & annihilate the spirit. Then I think, it itself is swallowed up by the Almighty.
The lake of fire, mentioned only in Revelation 19:20 and 20:10, 14-15, is the final hell, the place of eternal punishment for all unrepentant rebels, both angelic and human (Matthew 25:41). It is described as a place of burning sulfur, and those in it experience eternal, unspeakable agony of an unrelenting nature (Luke 16:24; Mark 9:45-46). Those who have rejected Christ and are in the temporary abode of the dead in hades/sheol have the lake of fire as their final destination. But those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life should have no fear of this terrible fate. By faith in Christ and His blood shed on the cross for our sins, we are destined to live eternally in the presence of God.http://www.gotquestions.org/sheol-hades-hell.html
