How Many are Being Punished in Hell Today?

How many lost souls are being punished in hell today according to the Bible? Answer, 2 Peter Chapter 2:9, the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation, godly are delivered, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished. Where are the unjust? Reserved. Any of you ever made a reservation? It's something that is held for you. You don't want this reservation. The unjust are-- there being reserved, they're being held for this day of punishment.

Again, John 12:48, the word that I have spoken, Jesus said, will judge them in the last day. We read a lot about that in John Chapter 6 today, right? When are they going to be punished, rewarded, judged? The last day. How many people are burning in hell now? Nobody. Some of you are getting riled up. You said, "Pastor Doug, you telling me you don't believe in hellfire?" I do believe in hellfire if that makes you happy. I do. I believe the wicked are going to burn.

That-- For our Baptist friends out there, you wanted to hear that. My dad was a Baptist. First time I was baptized in the mountains, remember that subject, Baptist. I understand and this is a very integral part. I do believe in it, but nobody's burning yet, according to the Bible, because the Lord says, they are reserved, haven't been judged yet, resurrection hasn't taken place, even the resurrection of damnation hasn't taken place yet.
