Revelation 21:8 ……the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone…

So Just How Intolerable or Hot is Brimstone?

Brimstone is actually Sulfur.

Two Videos of Sodom & Gomorrah (Brimstone is still on the Ground at one or both of these places):

1. Michael Rood Ministries: Sodom and Gomorrah – Part 1  Part 2

2. The Physical Ashen Remains of Sodom & Gomorrah – Video

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, (sex outside marriage) and going after strange flesh (homosexuality, sexual Perversion, Immorality), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

The sulfur (Brimstone) at Sodom and Gomorrah could maybe burn at a Temperature around: 2,000+ Degrees Fahrenheit. (Brimstone may be a blue flame/fire)

    I don’t want for this to come off as rude or as if I am trying to argue anyone’s religious beliefs or disrespect them in any way. I just wanted to inquire as to your source for the temperature of the brimstone fires mentioned in the post? I have worked in the science field for many years and it would be physically impossible for sulfur to reach a temperature remotely close to 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit. Going off of the information from Jude 1.7 and the description used in Revelations 21.8, we can calculate that the flaming lake of Hell and the rain that burnt the sin cities to be somewhere between 239 degrees Fahrenheit and 832 degrees Fahrenheit, with a required minimum temperature of 239 degrees Fahrenheit and a maximum of 309 degrees Fahrenheit, and leaving a maximum calculated variance of plus or minus two degrees for all calculations to compensate for the conversion from the scientific standard Kelvin temperature scale and the use of a whole number rounding system instead of the standard of rounding to the thousandth. Sulfur remains in a solid state until throughout the temperature range of 239-832 degrees Fahrenheit at which point it enters into its vapor state. The range at which it burns in a consistent manner is calculated to be between 239-309 degrees Fahrenheit below which inconsistencies and cool points would be seen as it returns to its solid state and above which the risk of self extinguishing due to oxygen displacement caused by the release of sulfuric gases. The oxygen percentage of the surrounding air should be between 13 and 35 percent for the most efficient burn below which the oxygen level would be too low for a sustained burn and flaming out is a risk and above which the oxygen and released gases are more likely to be at an explosion risk which upon detination would self-extinguish. If the fires that destroyed the cities were to be able to reach a temperature of 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit, the atoms of the vaporized Sulfur would almost instantly flash burn upon contact with oxygen. There is also the part of the scripture that tells of how the fire rained from the heavens, meaning it would have had to be in a liquid state. This isn’t to say that the cities themselves didn’t burn at that high of a temperature, it’s not unheard of for fires to reach well over that especially when you factor in the natural elements such as the wind or dry climate.

    Now, with that being said, I like to see a combination of science and religion. I am a huge supporter of knowledge and this was a very amazing site to stumble upon today.

    My primary source for this research was: The U.S. Department of Labor Health and Safety in Employment Act of 1992, Approved Code of Practice for the Prevention of Sulfur Fires and Explosions.

    Thanks for writing 🙂 In the videos above they say the Sulfur at Sodom & Gomorrah is 95-98% Sulfur it may be — Normal Sulfur may be only at 40%.

    I just added part 2 above to Michael Rood Ministries: Sodom and Gomorrah: — Check out at the 3:13 mark; he says the Sulfur over there is/was or can be hot enough to burn through Stainless Steel.

    Article: Melting temperature ranges for stainless steels

    In The Article above the Median Temp is: 2,600 Fahrenheit.

    In a video (maybe one listed above) I think they said they wouldn’t test the Brimstone in the machine, because they thought it could maybe get damaged.

    God’s Blessings,

    I’m about to maybe get a new banner for the Street (Evangelism) — The Banner on one side is a message about Hell. I’m going to put 2,000+ F on there.
