What is the Bottomless Pit in the Bible?
PASTOR STEVEN BIRNIE
(Rev 9:2-3) “…and he opened the bottomless it, and there arose smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air was darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth, and to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power…”
There are two realms in which a person can go when they die; if they’re saved, their body will go to the ground and their soul will go to heaven and for the unbelieving, their body will go to the ground with their soul going on to hell. Both will be sealed there, one in paradise and one in torments until their day of judgment. Tartarus, or the bottomless pit as it’s known, is a little different, as it holds no human souls only fallen angels and unclean spirits who’ve been sent there throughout the ages. This deepest, darkest part of hell, has played a crucial role throughout the history of mankind and will be even more evident within the tribulation period. Every time an unclean spirit is cast out of a man, the bottomless pit is where he’ll go and await his judgment. However, at the beginning of the second half of the tribulation, the bottomless pit will be opened as part of God’s 5th Trumpet Judgement, allowing them to torment, but not kill, unbelievers for a full 5 months. In the end, all of these hosts of darkness will be thrown into the lake of fire along with the devil, the antichrist, the false prophet and those contained in hell.
THE TRIBULATION SOLDIER – In our series, we’ll see direct results of these demons being loosed upon the earth as they go about torturing unbelievers. However, our main characters will not experience the effects of these unclean spirits, rather in accordance with God’s Word, he will watch on, with God having given the decree that no believer be hurt.
