Mankind Is In Prison?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi J____,

Yes, 2Pe 2:4 is speaking of humans that sinned, and the scriptures certainly do teach of mankind being in prison, which is all that the Greek word tartarus means. Speaking specifically of “the kings of the earth (verse 21), Isaiah tells us:

Isa 24:22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

That is exactly who Christ came to save:

Isa 42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, [ and] them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

‘Prison’ and ‘the pit’ are both types of death, and “the last enemy to be destroyed is death.”

1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

I have already written on this subject so I hope you will not mind reading these links:
