What is Sheole / Hades ?

I have had to re-post this article, because through Blogspot, it was deleted from it's original posting date. We are at war.

-  -  -  -  -  -  -

Understanding Sheol and Hades results in deeper comprehension of many Bible teachings.
It is first good to establish that the Hebrew word Sheol, is the equivalent of the Greek, Hades.
We see that demonstrated by a comparison of Acts 2:27 (Hades - Greek) and Psalm 16:10 (Sheol - Hebrew).
The Greek word Hades (G-86) consists of a combination of two Greek words--
{From ἄλφα (G1) (as negative particle) and εἴδω(G1492)}.
The combination (not + perceiving), means, to be conceptually blind... unable to perceive spiritual light (Mark 4:12). Hades is the symbolic and spiritual consignment, of those in spiritual darkness (Eph.4:182Cor.4:3-4John 12:351John1:61Thess.5:4)... not "the common grave of mankind", as we were deceived into believing by the "wormwood" of the "Watchtower".
The "realm" of those who occupy this darkened condition, is symbolically depicted in the book of Revelation, as the abyss (Rev.9:1; Rev.11:7) and as the sea / deep (Rev.11:7; Rev.13:1; Isa.57:20Jude 1:13).
Accordingly, Hades is occupied by those who are conscious, but considered spiritually dead (Eph.2:1; Ephesians 2:5; Col.2:13). Christ was there after his death (Rom.10:7) in order to preach to it's occupants (1Pet.3:19-20Jude 1:6)  (Isa.49:9) (Isaiah 42:7). It is a realm without the light of the knowledge of God, without which, we are in a spiritually dead condition (Isa.59:10).
Only those called out of that realm, gain understanding (1Pet.2:9Col.1:13John 1:4) through Christ. Those not granted, do not gain spiritual sight (Mark 4:11-12Isa.6:9).
They remain under the power of the spiritual realm, Hades.

When we ourselves have "light" concerning the meaning of Sheol/Hades/Abyss/Sea/Deep;

we then have an advantage, when it comes to grasping the meaning behind such verses, as Rev.13:1 , Revelation 11:7 and Revelation 9:1.
We then can "make our minds over", and remove former "Watchtower" misconceptions,
such as the doctrine which asserts that the Wild Beast arising from the sea (Isa.57:20Rev.13:1 and Revelation 17:8) is coming forth from "a place of inactivity". No... that is not the meaning of the abyss.
Satan's "abyss" of deception (LINK), is quite active in the minds of men. It is the source of the false prophet's great deceptive power, and the birthplace/source, of the Wild Beast/locust-scorpion collective (Rev.8:10-11; Revelation 9:1,2,3; Joel 2:2) ("fallen-star") (Revel.ch.nine) (greatest-tribulation/army).

Since Adam, we are all (including the Chosen) born under the realm of Hades, and the dominion of it's agents.

Without the salvation granted by God, we would remain under that consignment of "darkness", confusion, "Babylon the Great", and death.
The power and realm of deception and death (Hades), is also symbolized as a covenant/"mother", of death 
(Isa.28:15Rev.9:1; Revelation 17:5)
"She", has a husband (Heb.2:14Rev.9:11Isa.33:1).
All "her" children, are born spiritually blind and corrupted, and prisoners of death.
The power and realm of light and life, is also symbolized as a covenant/"mother", of life (Gal.4:26; Gal.4:24). "She", also has a husband (2Cor.11:2Rev.14:4-5; Rev.21:9-10; Rev.3:12; Rev.22:17).
Those born to her (Gal.4:19Rev.12:1-2John 3:3), are given spiritual enlightenment, and are her "seed" (Gen.3:15Rev.12:17).

Who are the "Fallen Stars" of Rev.12:4 ?

A "Watchtower" quote reads; 
"That number includes a sizable group of other spirit rebels, or demons. (Rev. 12:3, 4)" 
 Rev.12:3-4 reads; "Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child." 
 That WT quote, is assuming that the stars that Satan hurls to the earth, are his own demons. Yet other stars who are "cast down" to the earth (same Greek word) are interpreted by the WT, as "Christendom" (Rev.8:10-11) and as Jesus Christ (Rev.9:1). 

All three interpretations, are false, according to the scriptures. 
If we accept the interpretation which the scriptures give, those interpretations are harmonious and consistent. The Bible tells us what the fallen "stars" are. God's Word does NOT tell us that they are demons... or "Christendom". 
The Bible tells us, what this "third" is ("third of the stars" -Rev.12:4). Joseph told Pharoah, that "interpretations belong to God" (Gen.40:8), not the "Watchtower". 
If we hope to have truth, we must accept that fact. 
The "stars", are those whom God has chosen, to give light in the darkness, during the "night" (Matt.5:14-15). 
 Phil.2:15 reads; 
"so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like STARS in the world." 
Dan.12:3 reads; 
"Those who are wise will shine
like the bright expanse of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness,
like the STARS, forever and ever." 
These "wise", who shine the light of truth in the darkness, are the "messengers" (Greek: "angels"), in the "right hand" of Jesus Christ. He works, through them (right hand). They give light to the Congregations/churches of holy ones (Rev.1:11; 1Cor.14:33; Matt.10:23), which Congregations, support that light from Christ transmitted through his "stars" (Rev.22:6; John13:20; Luke 12:42).
Rev.1:20 reads; 
"The secret of the seven STARS you saw in My right hand and of the seven gold lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels/"messengers", to the seven churches, and the seven lampstands, are the seven churches."
 According to Eph.2:6, these faithful stars, are already spirit-born (Rom.8:9) and so already reside, in a "heavenly" position (Heb.12:22-23). 
2Pet.3:17 warns, that these can be "falling", from their secure position (literal translation of the Greek). 
Both Rev.8:10-11 and Rev.9:1, speak of a star that falls from Heaven. 
       (Note: when Jesus is spoken of as coming down from 
        heaven at Rev.20:1, the Greek word, differs from 
        the word "to fall". The Greek of Rev.20:1 means, 
        "to step down" voluntarily... NOT to stumble and fall.)
 Now, what about a "third", whom Satan is able to cause to "fall" from heaven (Rev.12:4)? 
This "third" of the Anointed "stars" of heaven, are mentioned, throughout Revelation. If we accept the Bible's interpretation of this "third", we can see that they are those whom God loves and must discipline, due to their failure to remain faithful, as His sons. God disciplines them, in the hope of their repentance and refinement (Heb.12:6-11). Of them, we read;    
"I will put this THIRD through the fire;
I will refine them as silver is refined
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
and I will answer them.
I will say: They are My people,
and they will say: Yahweh is our God.” 
Would God actually subject this "third" of the heavenly "stars", to the "fire" of Satanic persecution and power, in order to discipline and refine? 
(See Isa.48:10; 1Pet.1:6-7; Job 23:10; James 1:12-14; 1Cor.5:5; Luke 22:31)
The apostle Paul recognized the potential benefit of this... 
"hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the sinful flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord." (1Cor.5:5). 

God DOES allow Satan's agents (Rev.9:11; Isa.33:1)... the "Gentiles",
 to "trample" His "holy place", when they "lose their 'salt' " (Matt.5:13; Rev.11:2; 13:7,10; Col.2:8; Matt.24:24-25; Rev.13:11,7). 
So the Bible IS consistent. The FALLEN "stars" are NOT, "Christendom"... the demons ...or Jesus Christ (Rev.12:4; 8:10; 9:1). In all three instances, they are consistently, fallen anointed. 

The misinterpretation of Rev.12:4, is only one of so many instances, where the WT has failed to interpret prophecy, according to scriptural truth. The result, is that they have misguided the sheep of Christ. They are NOT providing "the proper food at the proper time", but are actually among, those "fallen stars" and "wicked stewards" over Christ's household 
(Rev.8:10-11; Luke 12:42,45-46; Hosea 6:5; Rev.11:5). 

This IS, the Great spiritual Tribulation...
 to sift those who genuinely love the truths of God, from those who love a lie, and worship the Image of a lying sign... a so-called "spirit-directed" Idol.
