Where Is the Lake of Fire?
In the actual Greek we find that lake called "the Lake of the Fire" (Revelation 20:15). It is a real lake in which there is fire. Or, to be specific, it is a lake of water in which there is fire. Now wait a moment. Where can one read such a meaning out of the phrase? It is easy. "The Lake of the Fire" was a well known geographical feature near the Land of Canaan that everyone in the first century (and earlier) knew about. It was a lake of water that periodically had fire associated with it in its center. In a word, it was what we call the Dead Sea today. [Read Appendix 5 for a full discussion on this important point]
