“They Have No Rest Day Nor Night”
“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” —Revelation 14:11
by David J. Stewart
What a frightening Scripture... THEY HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT. The unsaved who die in their sins will be cast into the Lake of Fire in eternity. The Bible warns that the wicked will be tormented with flaming fire by God Himself in vengeance (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). They will suffer day and night without rest.
Every person in this world sleeps at some time, resting the body. But in Hell there will be no rest from the pain, misery and suffering. There will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:49-50, “So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Repeatedly the Bible teaches that the just and the wicked go to DIFFERENT places in eternity. They do NOT all go to the same eternal destiny. Psalm 9:17 makes this clear, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” If the righteous and the wicked go to the same place in the grave, then Psalm 9:17 would make no sense at all. But it does make sense if you believe the Bible's teaching of eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire for all Christ-rejecters.
