Lake of Fire

Is the Lake of Fire a picture of God giving the Church over to false prophets in judgment?


Re 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake <3041> of fire <4442> BURNING with brimstone.

The Bible appears to be equating the LAKE OF FIRE to God’s wrath coming on the unsaved church body. It is accomplished as God allows the locusts, serpents, scorpions to devour the body with their lying words. These lying words are portrayed as FIRE coming out of the mouth in a form of judgment as God’s wrath destroys the wood, hay and stubble.
