No hell fire! No second death!

There is only one way to understand the Bible. It is God’s way…
*Isa 28:9-10 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

The Bible can only be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15 and truly taught using God's Holy Spirit of love. My best friend has commanded that I set this world free from bondage, and you now can be free if you will swallow your pride and dare to believe in our true Father God now delivered (Rev 12:5,13). Satan who soon will be cast down to this earth can no longer deceive us (Rev 12:9).

Anyone preaching hate and murder in a hell fire for any child of God for any sin as being of God is a liar and does not know the true God (1 John 4:20).
The world has believed in Satan the liar and murderer (John 8:44). There is a punishment for the wicked but Satan's lie is not it. Click punishment to see where that is.

God is love 1 John 4:8 and love ….
*Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
God (love) does no harm. God is not a murderer.
If he was to kill any of his children he would be a hypocrite for he wrote,
“Thou shalt not kill” Ex 20:13.
*Jer 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?,
God’s word does not produce heat. God’s word will convert the souls of all his created children. God’s word is not a literal fire. It is a burning of emotion to the heart. It is Love. Unconditional Love!.
*Isa 47:14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

God created us to be against him Rom 8:7 to learn the knowledge of good and evil, he created evil to teach us good Isa 45:7. So that at our resurrection to eternal life John 3:16 we each will become the gods (Ps 82:6) that God has predestined us to be.
*Ps 79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?,
*Ps 89:46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?.
God’s emotions are as a fire. Our emotions burn inside us also. All souls will be consumed by the word of God. Everyone will be very emotional when they are in front of the judgment seat of God. They will be in the hot seat. They will be devoured in Love, understanding, forgiveness and mercy because he has directed all of our lives Pro 16:9.
*Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.The adversaries are the children of the devil, demons that have influenced carnal (flesh) born children.
*Matt 13:38-40 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
*Matt 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"
The fire is only prepared for the devil and his demons it is not for anyone else.
*Jer 7:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched."
God will soon put an eternal stop to his children hurting each other.
*Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
*Rev 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
John 3:16 all will believe, each in their own order 1 Cor 15:23.
*Rom 14:11-12 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
*1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.ALL WILL CONFESS! All will be cleansed from all unrighteousness each in their own order (Isa 1:18).
*Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
God’s word is a fire (Jer 23:29). God is love, his consuming fire is love and mercy. We love him because he first loved us ALL.
*1 Cor 3:13-15 Every man’s work shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire: and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved: yet so as by fire."

When you know that Gods word is not a physical fire the scriptures take on new understanding.
*Mal 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."
The proud being humbled will burn inside. We all have been deceived into believing that God will kill forever those who do not obey him. But who has truly obeyed his word Rom 3:10. All ears will burn, all eyes will be opened all will be placed in God’s new heaven and new earth. All will be loved. The translation of stubble is the stalk left after the ears are cut off. The translation of root is bottom. The translation of branch is a division of a family descending from a particular ancestor.
*Psalm 104:4 “Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire”:
The words that are spoken burn inside which produces an emotion of an inner fire. A passion. This inner fire causes action from the one hearing the words (1 John 4:19).
The devil can throw words of fire (Eph 6:16) too.God’s word of love is unquenchable. It will accomplish all the will of God. Not one of God’s children created in his image will perish.

* 1 Cor 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to (burn).
The word (burn) is strong’s # 4448 it means melted with fire and purged of dross.
God’s word (fire) of love and mercy refines us. God’s word will not literally burn people it will melt people on the inside with emotion burning away our hearts of stone (Ezek 11:19).
Jesus was resurrected to immortality, he has flesh and so will we (John 20:27), (Ezek 26:36). God’s word of Love will purge the dross. Dross is the scum that forms on the surface. The scum are the sins of mankind.
*Jeremiah 33:8 “And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity”
God created us all to sin against him to become a god (Gen 3:22). Eve did exactly what God directed her to do. None of us would've been born had it not been for sin.
When you know that God’s word of Love is a fire of compassion and not a harmful flame scriptures bring new light.
*Isa 66:15-16,18,23-24. 15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory 23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD 24And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
The carcasses are demons, they look like men as does the devil (Isa 14:16). Their worm does not die, they are not consumed by these flames God does no harm. All of Gods children newly reborn to eternal life will then be able to see and hear them.
*James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
*Micah 7:17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee".
Being fearful is a trait of the devil. The perfect love of God has no fear (1 John 4:18).
*Rev 17:8 “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is”.
The book of life from the foundation of the world is the Lamb’s book of life (Rev 21:27). All those not written in the lamb’s book of life were written in the other book of life. All will see the beast (Rev 20:12) because all will be resurrected to immortality.At the judgment all will feel ashamed with themselves. Their hearts will burn. When they see they will believe. All will be humbled.
*Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
*Isa 10:33 “Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled. “

Men have burned their sons and daughters in literal fires which God says he never commanded nor neither came it into his heart (Jer 7:31), (Jer 19:5). Satan has deceived the whole world by teaching man that God will do the same to his children; it is a lie and is now proven by the true word of God.Doing such a thing has never entered God’s heart or mind. No one will die a second death or be thrown into a lake of fire. Only the devil and his demons will be thrown into a fire, this is when they will be humbled. No one can earn salvation and immortal life, it is a free gift. All can now love him, now that you truly can know him.
*Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
*Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life".
Satan with his lies of an eternal death or eternal torture written in the book of the knowledge of good and evil (Bible) has convinced the whole world that God our Father who created us will kill some of his children for eternity by throwing them into an eternal literal fire, doing them harm. The world believes in the wrong god. That god is a hypocrite. That god is of hate and murder and revenge.
The true God has all power and will save us all.
*John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Your belief in Satan’s lies of death will not stand.
*Isa 28:14-18 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.15Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.18And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

Man is appointed to die once and after this the judgment, Heb 9:27, Rom 6:23.Judgment is not death it is placement in God’s world for eternity (Ezek 37:26).God has allowed all, to test the hearts of mankind for their eternal placement. God is preparing and choosing his government. Many are called and few are chosen for these positions. Those who don’t learn love (God’s love) are not fit for service.
*1 John 2:9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
*Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins."
God who created evil Isa 45:7 will remove evil, you can be forgiven for your sins now by how you love your neighbor who you can see (1 Pet 4:8) how you treat them is how you are treating God (Matt 25:40) he made them in his image.
*Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

What is this second death that the Bible talks about and where does it go?
*Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
These are the traits of demons (the tares) that have possessed mankind and/or influenced their actions. They are the ones that will be cast into the literal fire that will not be consumed. The unbelieving are the innocent children of God for no one can come to God unless he draws them John 6:44.
*Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire THIS IS the second death.”
“Where does death and hell go”? In the lake of fire with the devil and his demons. It goes there because there isn’t going to be one.
*Matt 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Satan no longer has any power over our eternal death.
*Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he (might) destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
The word (might) is not in the original Greek text of the Bible. Christ did destroy him that had the power over our eternal death penalty (Heb 2:15).

During the 1000 years people will still be having their one death (Heb 9:27), (Isa 65:20). Those living during the millennium will still be learning the knowledge of good and evil (Rom 8:7) but they will have teachers (Isa 30:19-24) that will guide them. The millennium is the internship for the bride, for the coming government city that Christ has been preparing us for. Our Fathers world will come (Isa 65:17), (John 14:2), (Rev 21:1-7). The devil is loosed again at the end of the 1000 years after which mankind’s one death shall be destroyed forever.
*1 Cor 15:24-26. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
The love of Christ has the power of hell and death Rev 1:18.
All can have victory now over Satan’s lies. The truth does set you free. Perfect Love casts out fear. God will forgive all. All can live by every word of love and rejoice in the truth and power of our heavenly Father (Matt 22:29-30).
*Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
*John 12:46. We are the light of the world but men loved darkness because their deeds were evil.
*Matt 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones (should) perish.
The word (should) is not in the original Greek text in the Bible. Not one child of God made in their image will perish. It is the will and power of our Fathers everlasting love.

*Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

*Ps 82:6 I have said ye are gods: and all of you are children of the most High.

By the way, kindly read Revelations 21:8 for second death in the lake of fire. It is very true.

Revelation 21:8 (KJV) says:

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

There is no second death it is a lie of the devil. Look where the second death goes - it goes there because there isn't one Rev 20:14.
The fearful, unbelieving etc are traits of the demons (tares) planted among mankind Matt 25:41 only they go into the hell fire prepared for them. God created evil Isa 45:7 to teach all his children the knowledge of good and evil to become a god Ps 82:6, Gen 3:22 to be placed in his coming kingdom in his world Ezek 37:26, Matt 8:12, Rev 21. God is not a murderer if he was he would be a hypocrite Ex 20:13.

This is our last response to you through the King James Bible. We suggest that you read it wholeheartedly (we don't just mention the verses, we quote them). After this, it's in God's hand:

A) God chasteneth (the erring Christian) whom He love:
Hebrews 12:6-11 - 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Revelations 3:19 - As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

B) About Second Death and Lake of Fire
Rev. 21:8 - But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Finally,
C) Don't be deceived:
2 Peter 2:1-5 - BUT there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

God is a God of mercy and love. He is a God of everything good and is perfect. BUT, we must never forget that in His perfectness He is also a God who is JUSTICE because He is JUST. He showed it to the Israelites, many times in the Old Testament. He even chastised David, a man after His own heart. Yet, He forgives also, but only after David was very remorseful (His son by Bathsheba died also).

But, those who would not acknowledge Him as personal Savior and Lord (Revelation 21:8 talks about TRUE PEOPLE - not devils - who died and will face again the second death), they all go to the lake of fire - the bible says clearly SECOND DEATH. Even the most behaved false believers who worship "Jesus' image" who thought of themselves as pious christian and very religious will also go to hell. Think about this.

I suggest that you hear me the prophet raised up of my brethren Acts 3:21-23 given the task to restore all things before the return of Christ. I deliver the true word John 1:1 that has been hidden now going to the world at the heel of time Gen 3:15, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 until now, seek God's love with all your heart and you can find it now delivered. Satan has deceived the world into believing in a God of hate and revenge by his teachings in the book of the knowledge of good and evil (Bible). The words in the Bible must be rightly divided
2 Tim 2:15. The word divide means to separate. You must separate out the good from the evil with the spirit of God.
A. God chastens everyone Heb 12:8, all are partakers - none are bastards. Christ died for the whole world 1 John 2:2.
B. As you say and is true God is a God of mercy and love. God is just - a second death is not justice for those who have been evil, it is sleeping. The Bible clearly says the second death goes into the lake of fire Rev 20:14 it goes there because there isn't one. God will punish those who knew the Lord's will 2 Peter 3:9 but that did it not they shall be beaten with many stripes Luke 12:47. The word should in 2 Peter 3:9 is not in the original greek text, none will perish it is the will of God. God has all power, Satan has none. God will not fail at saving anyone 1 Cor 13:8. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God. When they confess God is just to forgive them and cleanse them from all unrighteousness, each in their own order according to their hearts of love. Many are called few are chosen to live forever in his coming New Jerusalem Rev 21 on the new earth in the new heaven, none will be lost John 17:12 except one, Satan's son the son of perdition. All of God's children will have a place Ezek 37:26 all will be given new hearts and new minds some justly will be placed in outer darkness Matt 8:12.
C. You along with the whole world have followed false teachers Rev 12:9 and in your pride you refuse to hear the true word now delivered that turns the hearts of the fathers to the children. You cannot rightly judge me until you read all that God has commmanded me to write on the website http://thegoodtale.blogspot.com
It is sad you are so quick to no longer want to communicate Heb 13:16. I tell you the truth. I dare you to do what God says - prove ALL things by the word of love (God)for God is love.

Hi Val,

Thanks for posting on my blog. I was curious as to your beliefs, so I checked your blog out a bit. I alighted on this article about no-hell, and I knew then that we have a disagreement about what the Bible says. You say you are a voice of God's truth, but Mike and Luisa gave you a Bible verse that clearly disagrees with your beliefs about hell:

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

These are clearly talking about people, because people do murders and commit fornication (whoremongers) -- angels don't fornicate. So this verse is not talking about angels, but about unbelievers who will go to hell for their sins. I think that you should consider whether or not you are truly giving us the truth of God's Word when your view of hell is not the same as written in God's Word.

I also read that you believe that we will become gods, but the Genesis account of Satan's lie shows that Satan wants us to believe this lie. Satan told Eve that she could become a god, but he was lying to humanity. Quite a few false religions today claim that we will become gods, such as the New Age, because Satan is still trying to deceive us with the same tactics.

So I appreciate that you quote many verses and seem to be a diligent studier of God's Word, but it seems that you don't believe in some important things that God's Word says. I have tried to prove all things by the Word of God, and your words do not match with His in important ways. Please consider if you are really preaching God's Word. How do you know that you have the truth, and not a lie that Satan wants everyone so badly to believe?

Sincerely,
WitnessingGod

Dear Witnessing God,
You indeed only checked out this blog a bit. Had you read the entire post you would have seen the truth about Rev 21:8. I will print it here again for you.
What is this second death that the Bible talks about and where does it go?
*Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
These are the traits of demons (the tares) that have possessed mankind and/or influenced their actions. They are the ones that will be cast into the literal fire that will not be consumed. The unbelieving are the innocent children of God for no one can come to God unless he draws them John 6:44.
*Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire THIS IS the second death.”
“Where does death and hell go”? In the lake of fire with the devil and his demons. It goes there because there isn’t going to be one.
*Matt 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Satan no longer has any power over our eternal death.
*Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he (might) destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
The word (might) is not in the original Greek text of the Bible. Christ did destroy him that had the power over our eternal death penalty (Heb 2:15).
God has all power, Satan nor sin has any eternal power, we are all learning the knowledge of good and evil to become a god at our resurrection.
God created us all sinners Rom 8:7 to learn the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22 to become a god Ps 82:6. God has all power, Satan nor sin has any eternal power over God’s children. Satan’s lie to Eve was that she would not die if she ate the fruit as God told her they would if they ate. It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment. Adam and Eve did exactly what God directed them to do when he created them with carnal minds that are against God (love). None of us would have been born if Adam and Eve did not eat of that fruit to become a god by learning the knowledge of good and evil.
Gen 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil…
Ps 82:6 I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most HIGH.
We are already gods in the making, when we die our spirit returns to God who gave it Eccl 12:7.
Satan’s lie in the Old Testament was that we wouldn’t die, his lie in the New Testament is that we will die a second death in a hell fire. God is not a murderer, he is a teacher. Satan lied then and he is a liar now.
In the Old Testament there was not truth or grace John 1:17. The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22. The word of God must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15.
Christ died for the sins of the whole world if one were lost his blood would lose value. Not one will be lost it is the will of the Father. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 by his words in the book of the knowledge of good and evil, the Bible Gen 3:22, 2 Cor 11:15
that have not been rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15.
The true word John 1:1 of God is now delivered Rev 12:5, 13 at the heel of time Gen 3:15. Prove all things. Be a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. You cannot rightly judge this unless you read all that has been written by this woman first. A true witness delivereth souls… all souls are now delivered Pro 14:25, 1 Pet 2:5, 1 Pet 2:9. A righteous judge gathers all evidence before making a judgment

Hi again,

Many verses teach that there’s only one God:

“He is God; there is no other besides Him” (Deut. 4:35).
“The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!” (Deut. 6:4).
“Before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me” (Isaiah 43:10).
“There is no other God besides Me” (Isaiah 45:21).
“There is no God but one” (I Cor. 8:4).

If there are many gods, then why does the Bible declare monotheism repeatedly? Genesis 3:22 only states that man has become like God to the extent that man now knows good and evil. It doesn’t say that man is a god – it just says that man now knows some truths that would’ve been best left only in God’s knowledge. Since He’s God, He knows how to handle this knowledge, but man isn’t god, so he doesn’t know how to handle it.

Let’s examine Psalm 82: “God . . . judges in the midst of the rulers. How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah. Vindicate the weak and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. They do not know nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I said, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High. Nevertheless you will die like men . . . Arise, O God, judge the earth!”

The text is in present tense: “You are gods”-- already gods. It didn’t say “You are becoming gods.” So this passage, even if literal, doesn’t support your view. Let’s examine the context. Psalm 82 shows God’s anger at Israel’s corrupt rulers. He says that though they’re gods, they’ll die like men. Since God gives part of His right to rule to government rulers (Rom. 13:1-6), these rulers were “in God’s place” as judges. God uses the metaphor “gods” to emphasize their lofty position. Israel looked up to these rulers as powerful men, so the title “gods” emphasizes this great power. That these “gods” “will die like men” shows that both terms “god” and “man” are used metaphorically for emphasis. In elevating these rulers with the language of being gods, God shows their utter demise in that they’ll die just like any man. They aren’t gods but only corrupt men.

That our spirits return to God at death (Eccl 12:7) alludes to the time when God breathed into Adam the breath of life. At death, life departs to its source, God. It doesn’t say anything about us as gods.

If hell is Satan’s lie, then why does Jesus warn us many times about it?

“Whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell” (Matt. 5:22).
“Fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt. 10:28).
“It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than . . . to be cast into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:47-48).

God isn’t a murderer because of hell. Murderers kill the innocent, but we aren’t innocent. Because we’re guilty of rebelling against the infinite God, God must judge us in hell. God wouldn’t be just if there was no punishment for sin. That’s why He died on the cross, to fulfill justice, saving us from hell.

Yes, none for whom Christ died will be lost. But Christ died for His people the elect, not for every single individual. Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and my own know Me . . . I lay down My life for the sheep” (John 10:14-15). Only God’s elect recognize His voice, the Word. Not all listen to His Word; thus, not all are His sheep. What about John 3:16's "all" the world? It parallels Revelation 5:9: “You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” Christ died for “all” people in the sense that He died not just for Jews but also for Gentiles. Jewish specialness was so ingrained in the Jewish mind that the Bible had to emphasize that Jesus didn’t die just for Jews, but also for Gentiles all over the world. When you study the Bible in context, we see that God is the only God, hell is real, and Jesus our Savior will save every one of His sheep.

Well hello again to you too.
God is our creator. God is a family name John 1:1. We are all his children. God is immortal we for now are mortal. Man is learning the knowledge of good and evil to become like God (immortal) at our resurrection as the angels.
*Matt 22:29-30 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
We are gods now because we are a child of God; he created all of us in his image. All will become immortal when resurrected (reborn) 1 Cor 15:52-55. Our spirit returns to God because he is not a God of the dead but of the living for all will live again for ever Luke 20:38.The word hell means everlasting punishment.
Christ as a mortal said “You fool” will he go to hell (everlasting punishment)? *Matthew 23:17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
*Luke 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools,and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:Christ said Father forgive them they know not what they do in regards to those who were murdering him. There is punishment for sin; it is everlasting placement Ezek 37:26 either near or far from God’s government city according to our works of love or evil. Sin doesn’t scare God he created it Isa 45:7 to teach us the knowledge of good and evil. Christ has the keys of hell and death Rev 1:18.Christ you know, the one who forgave his murderers. Those not professing Christ are innocent John 6:44. Those professing Christ that refuse to hear the true word of God that I deliver that turns the hearts of the fathers to the children of God will be destroyed Acts 3:22-23.
Christ died for the whole world this includes every individual child of God! There are two separate resurrections. The elect are in the first resurrection Rev 20:5. The rest of the dead are resurrected in the second resurrection 1000 years later. God (love) has all power. Neither Satan nor sin has ANY eternal power! Don’t think too highly of yourself Rom 12:3. God is able to raise up stones to take your place Matt 3:9. The elect are the bride of Christ; they are his soul mates.
The word of God tells me how to study the Bible. It is precept on precept line upon line here a little and there a little Isa 28:9-10. Do you live by every word of God? The word of God MUST BE TAKEN out of context to have knowledge and to understand doctrine. It is the only way to rightly divide it 2 Tim 2:15. A literal hell fire is only real for Satan and the demons all resurrected to immortal life will then be able to see them Matt 25:41, Isa 14:15-16, Isa 66:24. God does no eternal harm Rom 13:10 to anyone. Everlasting punishment is everlasting placement far away for those who professed Christ but that did not live by every word of love (God) as Christ did Matt 4:4. Outer darkness is not death Matt 8:12, Ezek 37:26, Rev 21. Without God’s everlasting love living in you, you are not his and he does not know you. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 The true word delivered turns the hearts of the fathers to the children of God by giving the truth that not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. *Matt 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. The kingdom of heaven is Gods New Jerusalem that comes down to the new earth in the new heavens in God our Fathers world Rev 21. All will know him then from the least to the greatest Jer 31:34.
*Matt 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones (should) perish. The word (should) is not in the original Greek text. Not one will perish it is against the will of God our Father who has all power.
