9 And a third angel followed them and spoke with a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,10 he will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, which is mixed full strength in the cup of His anger. He will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the sight of the holy angels andin the sight of the Lamb, 11 and the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or anyone who receives the mark of his name.
Who rules over hell?
Most people think that the Devil was cast out of Heaven, so he now rules over Hell as sort of a silver medal.
Jesus rules over hell.
Hell is not the absence of God’s presence.
It is the presence of His wrath without His mercy and grace.
It is not a place with less God.
It is a place with all of God’s wrath.
