According to Revelation chapter 20, Hell and the Lake of Fire are not the same place. Verse 10 says, “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 (AKJV).” This can be contrasted with verse 13 which says, “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works (AKJV).” If “death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them,” this means that there will be a time when the inhabitants of Hell are taken out of it. However, the inhabitants of the Lake of Fire “shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever,” according to verse 10.
In addition to this, verse 14 provides the most solid evidence to support that Hell and the Lake of Fire are two different places. It says, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death (AKJV).” You cannot cast something into itself. In this verse, Hell is clearly being thrown into the Lake of Fire. Yes, Hell contains a fire that cannot be quenched. So, how do you dispense of an unquenchable fire? Well, God tells us that He is going to throw it into the Lake of Fire. He confirms that this act causes the end of Hell by calling it the second death. Throughout the Bible, Hell and Death are follow closely together. In this verse, though, Hell and Death are ended. At that point, a new link begins between the Lake of Fire and the Second Death. To learn more about this topic, please watch the accompanying video.
