When Was Hell Created?


Thank you for your ministry as I get blessed by it regularly. I have a question. When was hell created?


Among Christians, hell is generally thought of as the place of eternal suffering for non-believers, so I will assume that’s the place you mean.

The Bible does not say when Hell was created, but it does say for whom it was created. In Matt. 25:41 Jesus says it was prepared for the devil and his angels. Humans can only go there by rejecting the pardon Jesus purchased for them on the cross. By doing so they become united with the devil and will share his fate.
