The plain sense of the words written by Peter in 1st Peter 3:18-20 is that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the grave is the same Spirit in which Noah preached to the wicked which are now in prison (hell).

What would be the use of Christ preaching to the spirits in hell? If one understands the Everlasting Covenant then one realizes that belief to be false.

1 Peter 3:18-20 being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison...while the ark was a preparing,...

This passage speaks about God reaching out to those in Noah's days by His Spirit. The Spirit of God residing in the " preacher of righteousness: Noah." It correlates perfectly with Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man,

It does not as some claim speak about Jesus going to Hades to preach to those in Noah's days who perished in the flood, but rather the spirit of God through Noah preaching for that 120 year period As we saw, those in Noah's day heard the gospel for 120 years and had the opportunity to repent

1 Peter 3:17-20
King James Version (KJV)

17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison,

20 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.

What those verses don't say michael_e is:

"According to the mystery that was only revealed to me."

Everything Paul said that was according to the scriptures was OT scriptures.
---kathr4453 on 3/28/13




1 Corinthians 15:3-5


3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures,

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:


OK now we need to ask ourselves WHAT SCRIPTURES? OT Scriptures or NT Scriptures. When exactly were NT scriptures written, before or after Jesus Resurrection.
---kathr4453 on 3/28/13


Maark, you said
//Paul says in Galatians 3:8,9) "The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham"//
Then you say
//I never once said that Abraham knew Jesus was going to resurrect//

So I apologize, I misunderstood your post, as Abraham's gospel was simply "In thee shall all nations be blessed." HE knew nothing of Paul's gospel of the grace of God, death, burial and resurrection.
---michael_e on 3/28/13


John 8: 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
---kathr4453 on 3/26/13


in Hebrews concerning Isaac/ sacrifice, Abraham seeing in a vision the resurrection, was also referring to the resurrection of Jesus Christ, although Abraham did not know Jesus would be His name.

The fact is there were two sects of Jews even before Jesus died and rose again who believed in resurrection life...even Job, and one sect did not.

Even the flood was a shadow of death and resurrection life.. 1Peter

So michael_e, even OT scripture talked about the death and resurrection of the Messiah. Isaiah 53, and David in Psalms foretold of the Son seated at the Right hand of God.

Even John the Baptist KNEW the LAMB was for slaying, RE DEATH,saying Behold the LAMB of God who takes away the sin of the world.
---kathr4453 on 3/24/13


Michael e, you are doing what others here do, saying things others never said, more like Kathr. In the blog of End time dillusions that closed you said to me:
"Mark, the question was simple, You said, Abraham knew Christ was going to die for our sins and he would resurrect.
Now you admit he didn't know. Very good"

I never once said that Abraham knew Jesus was going to resurrect. Not once. Why do you have to make up words just to answer someone? It's not necessary. If it's difficult for you to answer I understand. But stay with the Truth, do not be like the others.

Did the EVERLASTING COVENANT include all the work of Christ on the Cross, or only part of it.---kathr4453 on 3/23/13

Christ destroyed the earthly temple on the cross.--g on 3/22/13

Christ work on our behalf did not end at the cross. There was still the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary, which is the antitypical day of atonement. This could not have happened while on the cross. It had to happen in the heavenly sanctuary, which Jesus did not enter until several days after his death

Hbr 9:23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things IN THE HEAVENS should be purified...

Hbr 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true, but INTO HEAVEN ITSELF,...
---francis on 3/23/13


Francis, GOD is who accepted Jesus Sacrifice the VERY MOMENT He was crucified. IT IS FINISHED.

He was raised from the dead through the blood of the EVERLASTING Covenant, again, if God had not accepted His sacrifice he would not have risen.

Did the EVERLASTING COVENANT include all the work of Christ on the Cross, or only part of it.

The fact that Jesus was in the belly of the earth for three days, rose again and spent 40 days here on earth preaching and being witnessed by hundreds of His resurrection, in no way negates His finished works on the cross. Pentecost was 10 days after ascending into heaven, building His Church that can only be accomplished through us receiving the atonement/reconciliation, still the spring.

1.)John 20:17
"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God."

**if Jesus "literally" went to the heart of the earth to preach to the captives, why would he do this before going straight to the Father?

"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God."
-John 20:17
Question:
Why would Jesus be descending anywhere? when first of all, he was DEAD in the tomb, and He had not yet ascended to His own Father?
---Erasmus on 3/22/13


Francis
there lies your confusion.
Christ destroyed the earthly temple on the cross. He resurrected a new temple that is Christ IN US. He does not exist in buildings made with human hands. He lives IN us. That is why we can rest EVERYDAY and not just on the sabbath. That is why sabbath no longer matters. ALL days belong to God for those who are is true children.
---g on 3/22/13


---kathr4453 on 3/22/13
Here is no NT account of the day of atonement

Hbr 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Hbr 9:23 [It was] therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.


Hbr 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, [which are] the figures of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

Can we agree that this did not happen on the same day on which Jesus died since he had to enter heaven to do this?

Francis, He bore our sin in His own body on the tree...has to do with atonement, not passover.

He suffered outside the gate...again to do with atonement, not Passover.

Well, gotta go...no more to say.
---kathr4453 on 3/22/13


Francis, again you are stuck on days and not the fulfillment of what those days mean. Maybe because you still keep the sabbath day literally and not realize Jesus is our sabbath rest.

I hear occasionally " Jubilee is comming" "Jubilee is comming" and these guys do some sort of counting of days here and there and come up with a date of Jubilee, just like some try to date Jesus return by that same measure, counting Feast days etc.

Jubilee has COME ..all sin debts are paid in full.

Once and for all Francis IT IS FINISHED....it was FINISHED then and not a few months or years later.

---kathr4453 on 3/22/13
Jesus made the atoning sacrifice. But the earthly sanctuary model is given to us for a reason.

King James Bible Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained,

That day that was set aside was not the day he died or rose. It was another day. given to us in

King James Bible And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed

Hebrews 9:23 It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these


So it had to be much later

Francis, the moment Jesus died the veil in the temple was rent signifying the way into the Holy of Holies had been opened in heaven. Jesus didn't carry His Blood back to Heaven 40 days after His resurrection. and Jesus could not have been risen from the bead unless God accepted His blood sacrifice. He was RAISED from the dead "THROUGH" THE BLOOD OF THE EVERLASTING COVENANT.Romans 5 ....our sin was atoned for, and it didn't take until the next fall or 2 months later for that to happen.

I believe you are too fixated on "specific days" to see the whole. Jesus WAS the Atonement, He wasn't a day. He suffered OUTSIDE THE GATE just as in Leviticus,teaching about the rituals of atonement, OUTSIDE THE GATE!
---kathr4453 on 3/22/13


The Day of Atonement is the day on which the sanctuary is cleansed

Jesus did not cleanse the Sanctuary on the day of His death

Jesus did not go to heaven until three days later

Jesus then spent 40 days back and forth earth to heaven,

It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true,

This could not have happened while he was on the cross or in the grave

It had to have happened much later, after Penticost
---francis on 3/21/13


JamesL, That is right. As Kathr said. There is a real connection between YAHUSHUA's Sacrifice and the Day of Atonement. She was also observant to notice that there are two issues that arise out of the Question above.
---Gordon on 3/21/13


Gordon,
I agree that the Day of Atonement was six months after Passover.

But Kathr is correct that, at least in some regards, Jesus' death correlated to the Day of Atonement. Otherwise, what is Hebrews 8-10 talking about?

The writer speaks of bulls and goats, the sending off of sins etc - obvious references to the Day of Atonement - fulfilled in Christ's death at Passover.

Christ said this:
Mt12:40 For as Jonas 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.

There is no way that he was crucified on Friday and then rose Sunday.

In 30 AD the 14th of Nissan was on a Thursday - Exodus 12:5 - Crucifixion had to take place on Wednesday.

By the way, Christ was annointed for his burial on the 10th of Nissan - Exo 12:3 / Matt 26:12.

Whenever two sabbath coincide, it is a high sabbath, on that occasion it was the weekly sabbath and the passover

Matthew 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

The only time that the first day ( sunday) is gauranteed to follow a sabbath is the weekly sabbath

That is what you have on that day
passover and weekly sabbath on the same day

so I will ask,w hat two feast do you think occured

let me rephrase and be sure to state that his death does ot cover any sin ( past present ro future) unless we ask for forgiveness for each sin

JamesL and Kathr, The Passover is in the Spring. The Day of Atonement is in the Fall. YAHUSHUA was crucified in the Springtime. He was crucified on the day of Passover. The same day. GOD timed it all this way. Because YAHUSHUA is THE Passover Lamb. He is the Lamb to replace all sacrificial lambs slain, in the past, on Passover. His Sacrifice took the place for animal sacrifices.
JamesL, Re: "Festival of Passover", I didn't mean it quite in the way it appeared. I just meant the Passover is one of the most important Feast Days of the LORD. I should've used the word "Feast Day" instead of "Festival".
---Gordon on 3/20/13


1) Francis, The Hebraic/Messianic Feast Days are doubled with a High Sabbath. The High Sabbath has nothing whatsoever to do with the regular weekly Sabbath. Once in awhile, a Feast Day CAN fall on a weekly Sabbath, but, that's a completely different scenario. The High Sabbath and the weekly Sabbath are two different types of Sabbaths. There were two Sabbaths during the Passover/Passion Week. That helps to explain the true timing of Events. "Easter" is a Christianized pagan holiday. And you're filtering the truth of the Passion Week by what the Roman Catholic and many Protestant Churches are teaching. Instead, search deeply in the Scriptures and get understanding of the Jewish/Hebraic roots to learn how that Week actually played out.
---Gordon on 3/20/13


Francis, YAHUSHUA meant exactly what He said in MATTHEW 12:40. Do we have any doubts at all that Jonah was inside the belly of the Great Fish? NO. Not if we're serious Believers in GOD's Word! Do we dare doubt that Jonah was in that Fish for 3 days and 3 nights as the Bible says in JONAH 1:17? YAHUSHUA said that, JUST AS Jonah was in the Great Fish for...3 days and 3 nights, SO ALSO will the Son of GOD be in the heart (the center) of the Earth for 3 Days and 3 Nights (MATTHEW 12:40, ACTS 2:27 and EPHESIANS 4:9). That's where Paradise and the Hell of Torments were at that time (LUKE 16). There, below, He preached the Good News (I PETER 3:19). He could enter Hell and Paradise for He owns the Keys of Death and Hell (REVELATION 1:18).
---Gordon on 3/20/13


e.lee7537:

I didn't say I believed one way or other - just that the translation has been disputed by some as ambiguous - and it's unwise to base any kind of doctrinal theory on ambiguous translations.

If the translation is clear based on other sayings of Jesus, those other sayings should therefore be easy to use as evidence of the same thing, without relying on this particular verse. And if they can't, the verse is NOT unambiguous.

Hebrews comments extensively on the Day of Atonement in chapters 9 and 10. "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."Hebrews 10:22, 23. He is referring to the sprinkling of blood and the washing of water mentioned in the service of the Day of Atonement.

So there is a powerful connection between the Passover and the Day of Atonement, but they are still very different in meaning. So it is more than just a day of preparation, and should be studied as much as the meaning of Passover.

But we're counting days here, right? Not what it all means..right?
---kathr4453 on 3/20/13


Kathr,
the Day of Atonement was the day of preparation before the the High Sabbath (Leviticus 23:7, John 19:31).

Gordon,
what do you mean by "festival day of the Passover" ?

Do you mean that the Passover and the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread were the same day?

You weren't real clear. There was a perverted joining of the two during the Babylonian captivity

But regardless of the day of the week one holds to, with the sabbaths and feasts, you're starting with the faulty assumption that Jesus meant 3 literal days and 3 literal nights.
---James_L on 3/19/13


Francis, ** past, preasent and future sins??**
That's nonsense, The only sin Christ died for was "Adam's" the one that causes death!
If you sin ,as some of us do daily, we need "ask" for forgiveness, He knows our frame that we are week,not perfect, God grants forgiveness when asked sincerely!
"Lo the lamb of God that takes away the SIN (singular) of the world!"Not sins!

A high Sabbath is not a Sabbath which is also a feast day.

A high Sabbath is when a feast day like Passover ( which can fall on any day of the week) falls on the same day as the weekly Sabbath

John 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away

According to the scriptures, the day before Jesus died was the preparation day, that is any given Friday.

Exodus 16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare [that] which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily

Gordon, I don't think we are in any disagreement here. My point is that this High Holy Day, could have fallen on a Wednesday.

Not only was it aPassover, but other sacrifices also took place "daily "in the Temple.

It was those sacrifices that were going on during the time Jesus was Crucified .

May want to study about those too, and give me your thoughts.
---kathr4453 on 3/19/13


Kathr, It was Passover Week. YAHUSHUA's Death was on a Passover. He was THE Passover Lamb. Whaen the main Passover lamb was slain at the Temple, YAHUSHUA was being crucified Himself. Shedding His own Passover Blood on the "lentils" of the Wooden Cross.

After Saturday Sundown(Sabbath Sundown), He arose again.

Cluny, I hope you're only joking in your last comment. No one could truly believe those few hours of darkness during the Crucifixion were one of the Nights from the Saviour's "Three Days and Three Nights in the heart of the Earth" (MATTHEW 12:40). 1) He wasn't in the "heart of the Earth" (among the Dead) at that time of darkness on the Cross, 2) Those few hours of darkness had a significance all their own. The Son became as "Sin" and the Father could not look on His Son as He became "as Sin", hence the shrouding darkness. For the first time and ONLY TIME, the Father separated Himself from His Son when His Son became "as Sin" for mankind. Nothing to do with Him being in the heart of the Earth.

A distinct change took place the hour Christ was betrayed into the hands of sinnersor we might better say into the hands of the devil. Something different began to happen
You see, before this point in Jesus ministry, every time a mob tried to capture or stone Him or hurl Him off a cliff, He passed unharmed. He slipped right through their fingers. This was because He was innocent before the Father, and therefore under divine angelic protection. His hour had not yet come. It was not yet His time to suffer for the sins of the world. But after that hourThursday eveningwhen the past, present, and future sins of the world were placed upon the Lamb of God, then it was time

High Days" in John are also called "holy convocations". because these were also observed as Sabbaths. Hebrew months were lunar, tied to the phases of the moon and the Hebrew year had 360 days which is not exactly divisible by 7. So these special holy convocations would occur on different days of the week each year.

Example: Leviticus 23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement

JamesL, the problem is too many who keep the Sabbath always think the Sabbath was literally on a Saturday...EVERY Saturday, or Friday at sundown. WRONG. and as that verse shows, that particular sabbath was a HIGN SABBATH meaning it could have been any one of those earlier days before Saturday.

That's why it's totally impossible for anyone today to literally keep a Sabbath Day....which one...a lowely Sabbathh or a HIGH SABBATH. Some but not all???

JamesL, You're right that I meant to stress the point of How long YAHUSHUA was among the Dead. But, the issue of Where He was during that time is good to go, too.
One thing to note is that there were TWO SABBATHS during the Passion Week. The regular, normal Sabbath at the end of the Week. And, then, there was, what is called a "High Sabbath", which occured on the very same Festival Day of the Passover. The Hebrew Festivals are celebrated with a High Sabbath, which means they are to treat those Festival Days in the very same way they would a Sabbath. No work, only enjoy the Festival and worship the LORD.

Kathr,
yes, part of it would depend on what time Jesus was put in the tomb. It would have been before the Sabbath began, though. That's only a 3 hour window from 3pm to 6pm


On another note, I think Gordon's question was not "where was He" as the title implies. Rather, I think it was meant to be "How long was He there"

Gordon is one who stresses a "literal three days and three nights"

There is no way to reconcile a 21st century "literal" three days and three nights with the scriptural times given, even if it was a Wednesday or Thursday crucifixion

Jewish days and nights were 12-hour blocks. Like ours, except from 6pm to 6pm. The night came first and the day came after. Our Wednesday night would be their Thursday night

Suppose a Wednesday crucifixion, we would have

Thursday night (6pm to 6am), then Thursday day (6am to 6pm)
Friday night, then Friday day
Saturday night, Saturday day
Sunday night, which ended at 6am Sunday morning

Wednesday Crucifixion would be a literal 3 days and 4 nights
