2 Thessalonians 1:9-Eternal Destruction

2 Thess

9 who will pay the penalty: eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might

“who will pay the penalty” The word who is in reference to those that do not obey the message [the Bible] of Jesus Christ.

“eternal destruction” means that a person in hell has no more purpose or function. 

An illustration: The Light Bulb

The function of a light bulb is to light up the place it is in. Now, let’s say, you grab the light bulb and slam it to the ground, it will get destroyed. Its function will be destroyed but it won’t be annihilated since it will be on the ground in pieces. That is what its meant by eternal destruction
