Hell and Everlasting PunishmentPart 15: OblivionOblivion means the "state of being blotted out from the memory; a being forgotten." Many times I have been asked the question: "How can anyone be happy in Haven when some of his loved ones are in Hell?" The Bible teaches that "the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance" (Psalm 112:6), but it also teaches that those who go to Hell will be forgotten by their loved ones in Heaven. "Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned. The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree" (Job 24:19,20).Notice, a verse 20 says of the wicked: "The womb [the mother] shall forget him [the sinner]... he shall be no more remembered." The lost sinner in Hell will be completely forgotten by those who are in Heaven- they will be blotted out from the memory."The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:17). Those who have forgotten God will be forgotten by those who are with Him.B.H. CARROLL: He warned stubborn unbelievers: "You just as certain for Hell as if you were there today."ROBERT MURRAY M'CHEYNE: In his last message before he died, preached on the afternoon of March 12, 1843, in St. Peter's, he said: "Brethren, there is a hell. It was God's plan that there should be vessels of wrath as well as vessel's of mercy... O do not dream! All will not be saved."
