In the Bible, the word 'perdition' is derived from the Greek word 'apoleia' which means 'destruction'. It is from this same Greek word that we derive the name 'Apollyon', who is the Destroyer who ascends out of the Bottomless Pit in the Book of Revelation. When Peter speaks of the 'perdition of ungodly men', he is referring to those people who, because of their total rejection of God's Mercy through Jesus Christ, will ultimately be destroyed in the Lake of Fire. Speaking of Jesus, John the Baptist said: "...he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." Matthew 3:12b, KJV Jesus Himself described it as 'the fire that never shall be quenched'. Peter wrote: "But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." 2 Peter 3:7, KJV The Apostle Paul wrote: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God...For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 10:31, 12:29 KJV And John the Revelator wrote: "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:15, KJV If there is one thing which the Bible makes clear, it is that this destruction at the end of the world will be swift, and the ungodly will neither expect it, or escape it: "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3, KJV
