So let’s answer that question of why did Jesus go to Sheol?
In (Genesis 25:8) scripture tells us when Abraham died he was gathered to his people. Scripture also tells us in (Genesis 49:29) Jacob said, “I am to be gathered to my people.” King David made the statement when his son died in (2 Samuel 12:23) “I will go to him he will not come to me.” King David knew he would be gathered together again with his son. This shows us a spiritual common denominator between these men. They and their deceased believers before them, went to a definite location to be gathered together into a reunited spiritual family in God.
In part one we learned that English word usage, and demonic influences are partly to blame for some of the confusion surrounding Hell and Paradise. We also left off with the question of whether or not Jesus went to Hell, while in the Tomb?
Don’t Let Jesus’ Resurrection Pass-U-Over. Part One
The bible makes it abundantly clear that there is a Holding place after death for the disembodied souls of believers and nonbelievers alike. There is way too much theology and controversy surrounding topics such as Soul Sleep verses a Conscious Immortal Soul, the Annihilationists theory struggles against an Eternal Torment, Purgatory to Paradise, and conditional Immortality verses unconditional Immortality. These are just a few of the most common faith based battlefields.
Please accept this humble attempt to condense the broad biblical information about Jesus into highlights and concepts to enrich your witness and walk.This summary of Jesus’ Life is grossly inadequate when compared to the Holy Bible itself. It it written with the utmost reverence and humility to amplify your comprehension:While giving all Glory to Jesus, His Kingdom, and Life.
So, I was sitting and praying about what the Lord would like me to pen; when my wife burst through the door, nearly giving me a coronary telling me about some unexpected money she just received. Then in her next breath and excitedly short sentence she asked, “Would you like a ‘pastrami sandwich‘ from the store?”
My mind was quickened to the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:11)Give us this day our daily bread.
(Exodus 12:49) states “One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you.” This statement simply and literally interpreted means exactly what it says, One Law for everyone, including those naturally born to Israel, Jews, Greeks, and the Gentiles.
Gentile simply means Nations, so anyone who is not born of the nation of Israel is a Gentile. Both are instructed to observe the same law with no distinction or separation.
What does it mean to be subconsciously conscience and more importantly is it even possible? In my opinion Yes!
What I am referring to is the practice of keeping Jesus at the forefront of your mind’s eye. Make a conscience decision to let go and let God guide your life. Let the Holy Spirit within your heart; inside of your mind’s eye, help you to make a quick subconscious instinctual decision rooted in Christlike behavior. (Romans 8:28)
How many times in your life have you heard someone say, “It’s a Cross that I must bear” or “God will never give you more than you can bear” or something similar in context. These kind of statements made in reference to oppressions or extreme burdens are yet another one of Satan’s successful perversions of God’s word. (Matthew 13:19, Revelation 12:9, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10, John 8:44)
