The Bible says that when Jesus’s body was in the tomb that his spirit went and “preached to the spirits in prison.” (I Peter 3:18-19). Also Jesus himself said; “For as Jo’-nas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:40). Why did Jesus go down to hell to preach to people there if they couldn’t get out? There are different levels of Hell, Hades, Sheol,and Gehenna, the lake of fire in the center of the earth. Jesus went to even the worst, Gehenna. Did you know that in Psalm 136 it says 26 times“The mercy of the Lord endures forever” ? “The Lord is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”(II Peter 3:9). Many preachers say there is no hope for people in Hell, and that once you die and are not saved you are doomed forever to hell. Well, did you know that some of those verses about eternity actually come from the Hebrew word “Olam”meaning distant future or distant past, but are translated into English to mean forever.? Also in The Greek the word “Con “ means a time period.This word was also translated into English as “Forever”. So it doesn’t necessarily mean that hell and peoples confinement there is forever. A better translation would be, for a time period. So those three days that Jesus’ body lay in the tomb his spirit went to hell to give those people there another chance to get out by believing in him and accepting him as their Saviour, and they resurrected with Jesus and the old Prophets, when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and all the old Prophets were seen walking the streets of Jerusalem until they went to Heaven as Jesus did. “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”( John 11:25,26). So people who have died and gone to hell can have another chance even though they may have to wait there awhile.What a shocking revelation of truth! You mean to tell me that all these Churches that teach that there is no chance for the unsaved who die and go to hell, that they are teaching false doctrine? YES !!! “Oh Praise God for his mercy and Love !!!
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
