Worms in hell


According to the book of Isaiah and Mark, there are worms found in hell. The bible says in the book of Acts that Herod was eaten by worms even before he died. Could these worms that attacked Herod be the ones found in hell? Where did the worms suddenly come from? Note that the worms ate him before he gave up his ghost.


Isa 66:24

“And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”- KJV

Act 12:23

“And immediately the angel of the lord smote him because he gave not God the glory, and he was eaten of worms, and he gave up the ghost.”- KJV

Isa 14:11

“Thy pomp is brought down to the grave and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.”- KJV

(NB: according to the strong’s Hebrew and Greek dictionaries, grave refers to hell)

In Mark 9:43-48 Jesus warns about these worms three times.

Mar 9:43

“And if thy hand offends thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:”- KJV

Mar 9:44

“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”- KJV

Mar 9:45

“and if thy foot offend thee, cut if off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:”-KJV

Mar 9:46

“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”- KJV

Mar 9:47

“and if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:”-KJV

Mar 9:48

“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”- KJV

From the testimonies we have read you have seen that most of those who went there saw giant worms tormenting the lost souls in hell.


There are strange giant tube worms that were discovered by scientists just recently. These worms are unique in that they are capable of surviving in total darkness, do not eat, can live in extremely hot temperatures below the surface of the earth and can survive in an environment full of sulfur(in fact sulfur is their source of livelihood), the chemical that fuels fire in hell according to the bible. All these characteristics are found in hell.

The scientist discovered the worms under the sea around hydrothermal vents, which are rather like small volcanoes occurring under the sea.

So the question is could riftia worms be the ones found in hell? The verdict is yours.

According to the last paragraph of this article, hydrotherms are temporarily in nature. Old ones die and new ones appear and wherever they appear, so do these giant tube worms. Hydrotherms are also found hundreds of miles apart and this may mean that the worms cannot move from one hydrothermal vent to another. What this might imply is that the worms come from deep inside the earth from where they are brought forth to the floor of the ocean by the hydrothermal vents.

The verdict is yours as to whether these worms are the actual ones found in hell. However, remember there are worms in hell as stated in the bible and as testified by those who have gone there and back and their work is to torment the lost souls.


Now you can read the article written by a scientist who probably had no idea that worms exist in hell. The scientists were using a tiny sub marine called Alvin under the deep ocean when they stumbled upon the sight.

Life without Light

by Kirsti Ritalahti

On the deep sea floor, where no sunlight penetrates the thousands of meters of water overhead, life has found a rare, ephemeral environment in which to flourish. It is a world hidden from our view in which the animals have adapted to a way of life only imaginable in a wild science fiction tale. It is a place which is never touched by a ray of light, other than that of the submersible submarines which first encountered them two decades ago. This environment is different from any other on earth, a consequence of the forces responsible for the spreading of the continents.

In both the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans, there are places where hot magma under the surface of the sea floor causes cracks in the Earth’s crust. Sea water seeps into these holes, only to be forced out as mineral rich, warmed geysers into the cold, oxygen rich, deep ocean water. These unique springs are known as hydrothermal vents.




It was in one of these seeps at the Galapagos Rift off the west coast of South America, that Alvin, the tiny submarine, encountered a spectacular site. In front of the porthole were thousands of pale, long tubes, topped by a bright red plume. Like thick-stemmed tulips up to 3 meters long, these long tube worms swayed in the turbulence of the never before encountered spring. As Alvin scouted the area, it came upon a field of giant white clams; wide mouths open to the currents, padded feet embedded in the sediments. Teeming with curiosity, scientists asked the question: What is the food source that drives this ecosystem?

Their search revealed some surprising results. The water springing from the vents is rich in hydrogen sulfide, the same compound which gives rotten eggs their distinctive odor. Although not a very attractive source of food, some tiny free-living bacteria located in the region encircling the vents think otherwise. In a process akin to the way in which green plants on land use the power of sunlight for photosynthesis, these bacteria utilize the hydrogen sulfide emitted from the vent as a source of energy to convert carbon dioxide from the surrounding sea water into sugars that it needs for growth.

The tulip-like worms, however, proved even more astounding. These animals, Riftia pachyptila, have no mouth or gut. No way to eat food, including bacteria, from their surroundings. Instead their red plume rimmed with blood vessels reaches into the vent waters. Oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide bind to carrier molecules in the blood. As the heart pumps, these three compounds are delivered to the trophosome, a very specialized tissue. A unique structure, the trophosome contains densely packed bacteria, similar to the free living forms found in the surrounding water. In other words, within the body of the tube worm is a farm, well tended, and well worth it. For in return for a stable environment in which to live, and a constant source of energy and carbon, the bacteria provides Riftia with all the organic compounds that it requires for growth. This association of two different living entities is a symbiosis. Both organisms are wholly dependent upon the other for survival. Alvin encountered an ecosystem quite different from the ones in the sun-bathed world above the ocean floor. A place where tube worms and clams provide housing, and the bacteria pay rent.     

The hydrothermal vents are oases teeming with life on the dark sea floor. Each vent is transitory in the life of the planet; new ones are born as old ones die. They are distant and isolated from one another by hundreds of miles. Yet there are similarities among the communities surrounding these sites. It is likely that for as long as the geological forces that formed the earth continue, the prolonged success of these symbioses is almost indefinitely insured.

According to Wikipedia, Giant tube worms, Riftia pachyptila, are marine
invertebrates in the phylum
(formerly grouped in phylum Pogonophora and Vestimentifera) related to tube worms commonly found in the intertidal and pelagic zones. Riftia pachyptila lives over a mile deep and up to several miles deep on the floor of the Pacific Ocean near black smokers and can tolerate extremely high temperatures and sulfur levels. They can reach a length of 2.4 m



Many among those who went to hell and back saw worms in hell including the following whose testimonies are contained in this book

Mary K. Baxter

She says


“…….I looked at the woman again, and worms were crawling out of the bones of her skeleton. They were not harmed by the fire. Jesus said, ‘She knows and feels those worms inside.”    

(Baxter, Mary k,”divine revelation of hell” chapter two, www.spiritlessons.com )

One of seven Columbian youths



“…It shocked us to see how their bodies were destroyed.  Worms were coming in and out of their empty eye sockets, mouths, and ears; and were penetrating the skin all through their bodies.. . “- (www.spiritlessons.com , testimonies)

  2. I read Baxter’s book and the worms were just a tidbit of the horror of hell. Good book makes you think…

    • What a crock, obviously, these metaphors Jesus is speaking about are not to be taken literally. “All these things spoke Jesus unto the multitude in PARABLES; and without a parable spoke He not unto them.” (Matt 13:34 ). The bible is ONE (albeit incredibly large) parable! You’ve been duped by the orthodox church and inaccurate bible translations (i.e. Gehenna into hell, eonion into eternal, etc.). Although parables speak a SPIRITUAL truth, they are not LITERALLY true. The hell fable makes for entertaining movies, and is used as a fear factor to extort large amounts of $$$$ from unsuspecting congregations, but it is an absolutely FALSE TEACHING! Consider this: Orthodox ministers/priests insist the bible must be taken literally to create FEAR to extract $$$$ from YOU! But when it comes to TITHING which was a SPECIFIC COMMAND TO ISRAEL ONLY, to be paid on the increase in production of the land ONLY, and to be paid to the Levitical priests ONLY, then they get all spiritual and insist that these OLD COVENANT commands are to be applied to NEW COVENANT Christians. See the common theme? Getting YOU to open YOUR wallet to fill THEIR bank accounts! They twist the Word of God to get YOUR money! What a complete SCAM! Jesus Christ NEVER collected tithes nor did he command it. Paul never collected tithes. Paul went HUNGRY most of the time! You think Paul Crouch is rich! The apostle Paul would have been a multi-multi millionaire had he collected 10% of all of Aisia’s income. It’s total nonsense.

      • It is interesting to hear your view. However, know that hell exists and is a literal place where damned souls will suffer forever. The bible is very clear about this. Jesus warned people against going to hell many times. He talked of the Kingdom of heaven numerous times. So these places do actually exist. Do not be deceived my friend. Tithes are biblical. The old testament does not refer to Israelites only. In any case, the new testament is an extension of the old testament. In fact there are so many people who will go to hell for failing to give tithes faithfully. It is like you view the work of God to be financially centered. This is not the case. people do not preach for money although we cannot deny that there are a few here and there who preach for money. Gospel is meant to win souls for the kingdom of God. Money is needed to spread the gospel. So do not hesitate to give tithes and offerings in church. In doing so you will be seeking blessings here on earth and you will be building your mansion in heaven. Martin just wondering whether you are born again. If you don’t mind let us talk more about this.

  3. It seems to me the worms eating him refers to the fact that when you die your body will be eaten by worms as part of the decomposition process that turns humans back to the dirt from which they and all other organic matter came. Life is energy and energy can not be destroid only transfere. Therfore, there is no such thing as heaven or hell or right and wrong or good and evil. Only light and darkness, which is the abcense of light. Yin and Yang, one can not exist without the other. Out of destruction comes life. And only life can sustain life. We are all part of the same condition and everything is alive as energy doesn’t die only matter.

  4. The devil fights that no one goes to God in heaven.Its very difficult on earth as God woe unto those on earth for the king of darkness has been into the world.I believe this discovered worms are a God’s mercy to worn us about the danger us sinners are to face in hell.Jesus have mercy on me that i dont go into hell because God is angry of my sins.

  5. These woms are the once coming from hell.God loves us by giving us these signs so that those who see them communicate to all of us that we may not goi to hell
