Christians have always been taught that Hell is under our feet and is filled with former rock stars and people such as that. This might not be so now. While a lot credit Dante for the imagery associated with Hell, the book of Enoch is the source of locating where this temporary prison was. The book of Enoch isn’t included in the collected books of the Bible, but Enoch is the one that God took and didn’t let die in Genesis 5:24, so you should read his most fascinating book. In his book, he spoke of three portals that go into the Earth. Only one of those portals are for the righteous. When Jesus died and went into the portals and reached the souls that rested, certainly at least the righteous ones went with Him. The two portals that divided the rest, each according to their deeds, is where Hell was at least until Jesus defeated Death. That Hell, as well as the resting place for the righteous was temporary. There will be a permanent Hell to come known as the lake of fire, which will probably be part of the bottomless pit, but that has not been opened yet. The bottomless pit is something that will be visible. Since the days of Jesus’ resurrection, Hell was probably moved at least for the unrighteous that died afterwards. Perhaps it still holds those that died before He defeated Death. After this age is over, the Antichrist and False Prophet are put into the lake of fire forever while Satan is put in the bottomless pit for a thousand years. After he is released and allowed to tempt those yet to be judged, he will be put into the lake of fire where the Beast and False Prophet already are.
It is written that while Lazarus was poor and sat on the floor waiting for scraps from the rich man’s table like a dog, he was faithful. He loved godly things more than things of men. For this he was in Abraham’s bosom. While the rich man had great earthly treasures, he cared more for them than things of God and was unfaithful. When he died he was on the other side of a gulf able to see Abraham and Lazarus. The rich man begged Abraham to let Lazarus come and put his finger to his tongue to cool it. That word “gulf” in Luke 16:26 is the Greek word “χάσμα” (KAS-mah), meaning crevice or gulf. Now there used to be this gulf between the portals, but still after Jesus defeated Death obviously heaven was relocated. Is Lazarus still visible to the rich man after Jesus’ resurrection? If he is, then the rich man has also been relocated. Lazarus has definitely been relocated.
Since then after death, we all go up there to God. Everyone. At least from the point Jesus defeated Death it’s been this way. That’s why on the very rare occasion that when someone dies and they are brought back to life they see a common thing. They see a tunnel of white light. If you can imagine yourself travelling through space many times faster than the speed of light with stars, constellations, and other heavenly bodies whizzing by, wouldn’t that produce that tunnel of white light? Yes it would. More proof of the afterlife.
Those portals for those that were not righteous is not where Satan has been. Satan isn’t imprisoned right now, but he is without God. Let’s not forget what is written of the rider of the pale horse, who’s name is Death. That is one of the names of Satan. What happens when Satan comes? Hell follows him. Then will Hell be upon Earth and then below us permanently because him being forced to Earth by Michael and his angels opens the bottomless pit- the permanent Hell. He’s not there now. Remember, in the early chapters of Job God does have to ask Satan where he was. It sounds like not only didn’t God know where Satan was, but that Satan could go pretty much anywhere he wanted. If Satan was inside the Earth in a place called Hell, why would God have to ask him where he was?
