'Shame and everlasting contempt' can mean ridicule of the wicked POST MORT EM and this can last for all time to come. It is reputation that will continue forever.

The wicked reputation of Satan the Adversary is a good example. His followers will be ridiculed as well. When Jesus judges a person as wicked beyond redemption because he is so set in his ways that he can no longer repent, he will be condemned to die the death from which there is no resurrection (called the ‘second death’ in Revelation 2:11, 20:6, 14 and 21:8).

Notice Dan 12:2 ‘And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.’ Contempt is another word for reputation or ridicule.

Notice that the ‘everlasting life’ resurrection is separated from the resurrection to ‘shame and everlasting contempt’. That is because it is not a resurrection to life but to an ignominious judgment followed by the punishment of death, the permanent kind from which there is no resurrection.

That is why it is relegated to ‘shame and everlasting contempt’. Its reputation, ridicule and reputation will last.

Here is how another Prophet of God put it in Jeremiah 23:39-40 ‘Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence: 40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.’

God means what he says and says what he means. Our job is to believe him and not what mere mortals conjure up as doctrine from their own imaginations.

What men say, regardless of who it is, be it Billy Graham or the Pope, does not make it the truth. No group, church or collection of theologians can supersede the word of God. They do not have the privilege of rewriting the Bible for their own benefit.

Don’t believe me; believe God’s word. I’m merely showing what he said. These are his words, not mine. Believe them. Trust them and eradicate Hell from your thoughts. Liberate yourself from the tyranny of Hell, and learn from Jesus so he and his word (the truth) will make you free indeed.
