For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.(2 Peter 2:4) KJV
Hell wasn’t created during the six days of creation. This is important to understand. Hell is a consequence of sin which began after the fall of man.
God’s curse upon the Earth is nuclear decay. This is the reason why God took on human form and walked among us, as Jesus of Nazareth, to give us the means of escape of this truly terrible place. We have been given the name above all names on which to call for salvation: Jesus Christ.
Tragically, now that death has entered the world and all of us have to die, hell has become the destination for those who reject the free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Having said that, hell was the perfect place to imprison the angels who rebelled with Satan and were cast out of heaven.
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.(Jude 1:6) KJV
Now we have the means to be able to understand two rather enigmatic phrase, chains of darkness and everlasting chains under darkness. What else could this be referring to but gravity? These are the spirits in prison to whom Jesus preached when de descended into sheol after the crucifixion.
By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.(1 Peter 3:19-20) KJV
