Don Stewart
The Bible is clear that hell, or the lake of fire, exists. Yet the exact location is not specifically stated in Scripture. There have been two major views as to the exact location of the final destination of the wicked.

Special Place

There are many who believe that there will be one special place in the universe where God will confine evil humanity along with the fallen angels. In some remote corner of the universe, all of the evil beings will be kept forever in this unnamed place.

Old Earth

When Christ comes back He will make a new heaven and new earth. There are some who believe that He will use the old, fallen earth to be the place of confinement for the wicked. Since Satan has always wanted to have this planet for himself, he, along with all those who followed his evil ways, will get their wish. The earth will become their everlasting jail house.


The exact location of the final destination of all evil humans and angels is not stated in Scripture. It may be in a special place in the universe, or it may be somewhere in the old, fallen, earth. Ultimately we do not know where they will reside but we know it will be away from God's goodness.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
