The Worms from Hell

Article#: 1330

These are the very last days, the last lap of the race, and this final stretch will be the toughest. But the redeemed can take great confidence in the promises of God, for His promises never fail. 
I Corinthians 10:13:

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Hebrews 13:5 speaks of the Lord Jesus Christ:

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Strengthening one’s faith is the business of all God’s saints. It is time to redouble our efforts. It is time to press in with our might. 

Luke 13:23-24

23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”

He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.

Building faith is the business of the saints.

Romans 10:17 declares the formula for building faith:

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Immerse yourself in the Word of God. Jesus said in Luke 16:16:

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

Soon, Jesus Christ will return in the clouds to receive the born-again unto Himself. Will you be one of those He is looking for? Are you born-again, born a second time, this time of the Spirit of God? Terrible, terrible times are approaching and Jesus Christ is the only way of escape. John 3:3:

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Are you ready to escape the wrath of God? Do you want all your sin and shame erased as though you never were guilty? Do you want the power to live a most beautiful life filled with promise and eternal purpose?

GOD SAID, Isaiah 14:9-15:

9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

GOD SAID, Mark 9:42-48:

42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

MAN SAID: The Bible is not to be taken as the literal, inerrant truth. It was written by mere men thousands of years ago and it is laden with gross exaggerations, folklore, and fairytales.

Now THE RECORD. The absolute inerrancy of the Word of God is breathtaking. To those of childlike faith, the Bible is the very wellspring of life. Consider that the declarations in the Word of God that skeptics dub as foolish impossibilities have been, and are continually being, certified as the gospel truth. What carnal men call foolish impossibilities, such as a 6,000 year-old earth created by God; one mother and father of all; mankind being made out of dirt; the woman formed from man’s rib; all of the earth being once vegetarian; Noah’s Ark; all of the earth once speaking one common language; Sodom and Gomorrah; Joseph, the Grand-Vizier of Egypt; Moses and the plagues of Egypt; David slaying Goliath; Jonah and the whale; the animalization of Nebuchadnezzar; and so on are all certified by archaeology, paleontology, microbiology, history, and other sciences as true!

Welcome to GodSaidManSaid. This is feature article #591 that once again proves the full inerrancy of Holy Writ. All of these features are archived on GodSaidManSaid in text and streaming audio for the edification of the saints and as ammunition in the battle for the souls of men.

Thousands of years before man’s vaunted science begins to discover the truth of a particular issue, he finds that God’s Word is already there — knowledge that only the Creator could know. The Bible speaks of Hell’ fire, a place of tormenting heat that sits in the bowels of the earth. This is a place that was created for Satan and his angels and for all those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ as the Saviour of their souls. At the very end of all time, Hell is cast into a place called the “Lake of Fire.” Revelation 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.

Revelation 20:11-15:

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Jesus called this place outer darkness. Matthew 25:30:

And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Now, concerning Hell and the lake of fire, the Bible speaks of worms that exist in this most uninhabitable place of infernal heat, brimstone, and finally, utter darkness. As a side note to this feature is the Bible’s noting of brimstone. Brimstone is sulfur, and when sulfur is burned, it produces suffocating odor. Science now understands that brimstone is an important ingredient in sustaining the worms from Hell.

Following, you will find excerpts from various sources that once again certify the veracity of the Word of God.


The Pompeii Worm (

) is a deep sea creature reaching lengths of up to 5 inches with red tentacle-like gills on their heads that can withstand temperatures that rival those in Hell. The worms live in tubes near black smokers, or hydrothermal vents, one of the most inhospitable environments on our planet. Their tail end rests near the source of the heat which gets up to 176° F (80° C) while their head pokes out into cooler, almost room- temperature water of 72° F (22° C).

The giant tube worm is one of the most conspicuous members of a diverse community that forms around hydrothermal vents. Scientists once thought that no living thing could survive the harsh combination of toxic chemicals, high temperatures, high pressures, and total darkness at these vents. But, in 1977, researchers diving in Alvin discovered tube worms and other bizarre organisms thriving at a vent off of the Galapagos Islands. Similar communities have since been found at several hundred hot spots across the world. These creatures are like nothing else on earth.

A complex life form has been found living 1 mile below the Earth’s surface, according to a study published in the journal

, proving life can thrive in a place where only bacteria were thought to exist. Nicknamed “worms from hell,” the newly discovered nematodes were found living in several South African gold mines, shattering scientific assumptions about the conditions needed for multicellular life. To find animals with nervous, digestive, and reproductive systems so deep underground is like finding “Moby Dick in Lake Ontario,” study co-author Tullis Onstott of Princeton University tells

. “This is telling us something brand new,” he says. “For a relatively complex creature like a nematode to penetrate that deeply is simply remarkable.”

How low can worms go? According to a new study, at least 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers) below the Earth’s surface. That’s the depth at which scientists discovered a new species of worm, dubbed

After digging holes in the Earth’s crust for nearly two decades, Princeton University geoscientist Tullis Onstott is now making headlines for unearthing worms from hell.

Interviewer: Then you found still more perplexing discoveries in other South African mines — for instance, microbes similar to those previously seen only at the bottom of the ocean.

Interviewer: That’s amazing, since we usually think of radioactivity as deadly — but these organisms were actually living on radiation?

Interviewer: And does that microbe interact with other species down deep?

is entirely self-sufficient. It has its energy source, radiation. It contains everything it needs to exist, and it requires nothing from another organism. The fact that we’ve found it almost by itself tells us that it’s a one-species ecosystem. Such things aren’t supposed to exist. We thought all organisms depended on others, but this one doesn’t. We’ve found a whole new way to live.

Jesus said, Mark 9:44:

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

God said worms and brimstone. Man said it’s impossible — at least until now.

God’s Word is true and righteous altogether. Surely a place to build a life.

GOD SAID, Isaiah 14:9-15:

9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

GOD SAID, Mark 9:43-44:

43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

MAN SAID: The Bible is not to be taken as the literal, inerrant truth. It was written by mere men thousands of years ago and it is laden with gross exaggerations, folklore, and fairytales.

Now you have THE RECORD.

Is Hell Real? Is Hell Eternal? Two very important Questions

It is interesting that a much higher percentage of people believe in the existence of heaven than believe in the existence of hell. According to the Bible, though, hell is just as real as heaven.

The Bible clearly and explicitly teaches that hell is a real place to which the wicked/unbelieving are sent after death. We have all sinned against God (Romans 3:23).

The just punishment for that sin is death (Romans 6:23). Since all of our sin is ultimately against God (Psalm 51:4), and since God is an infinite and eternal Being, the punishment for sin, death, must also be infinite and eternal. Hell is this infinite and eternal death which we have earned because of our sin.

The punishment of the wicked dead in hell is described throughout Scripture as “eternal fire” (Matthew 25:41), “unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12), “shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2), a place where “the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44-49), a place of “torment” and “fire” (Luke 16:23-24), “everlasting destruction” (2 Thessalonians 1:9), a place where “the smoke of torment rises forever and ever” (Revelation 14:10-11), and a “lake of burning sulfur” where the wicked are “tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10).

The punishment of the wicked in hell is as never ending as the bliss of the righteous in heaven. Jesus Himself indicates that punishment in hell is just as everlasting as life in heaven (Matthew 25:46).

The wicked are forever subject to the fury and the wrath of God. Those in hell will acknowledge the perfect justice of God (Psalm 76:10). Those who are in hell will know that their punishment is just and that they alone are to blame (Deuteronomy 32:3-5).

Yes, hell is real. Yes, hell is a place of torment and punishment that lasts forever and ever, with no end. Praise God that, through Jesus, we can escape this eternal fate (John 3:161836).
