A common hidden teaching that Jesus was in hell and heaven at the same time between the time He died on the cross and when He was resurrected has surely been secretly exposed to only the truth seeking Christians today. This issue has been complicated by a clause in the Roman Catholic Apostles' Creed (which is not part of the Bible). The creed states, "He descended into hell." Did Jesus really go to the place of suffering and torment called "hell" for humanity? Why did they take away this 
TRUTH from us? is also a major question to ask these false teachers who take money for salvation from us in TITHES

First, let's look at the verses used to claim Jesus did enter hell after His death on the cross: Ephesians 4:8-10 reads, "Therefore it says, 'When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men.' (In saying, 'He ascended,' what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, of the earth? He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)" These verses actually confirms Isaiah 66:1-5 and David's prophecy in Psalm 68:18 -23. 

The controversy centers on the destination of Jesus' descent. Did JESUS descend to hell or to the earth (grave) before going to heaven?. Thank God that another passage from David's prophecy in Psalm 16:10-11: "For you will not abandon my soul to SHEOL, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life." So this passage refers to Jesus entering hell fire 
 (SHEOL) before His Glorious resurrection to free David and others from hell as confirmed by Apostle Paul a hearing witness from Peter's public preaching in Acts 2:22-38. This interpretation is due, in large part, to the King James Version, which translates Sheol as "hell" in this passage. However, the Hebrew word SHEOLIS is a very general reference to the grave, not hell or a particular place in the afterlife crazy.

In Matthew 12:38-41 Jesus says He will go to the "heart of the earth" just like Jonah went to the belly of the whale. However, here Jesus was speaking of death or the grave, not a particular location in the afterlife. To claim this speaks of Jesus as going to hell pushes our very analogy too far from TRUTH. A final passage often used in this discussion is 1  also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the Spirit, in which He went and proclaimed to the Spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water." Some think this refers to Jesus speaking to human beings in hell after His death on the cross. Others think it refers to Christ's Spirit speaking in the days of Noah to warn of impending judgment and offer salvation to Noah and his family. But it is more likely that it refers to Christ pronouncing His victory over the demonic spirits who are bound in the abyss too (see Luke 8:31; Jude 1:6;  Revelation 9:11). 

The view of Jesus descending to hell is proved by the words of Jesus Himself. On the cross, Jesus cried out, "IT IS FINISHED!"(John 19:30). His suffering was over; there was no more payment of TITHES and other sacrifices needed for salvation. Also just before His death, Jesus said, "Father, into your hands I commit my SPIRIT" (Luke 23:46) which also proved His Spirit in Heaven. Upon death, His Spirit went to the Father and body to hell for lost Old Testament souls. Another evidence to proof this assertion: Jesus Himself made promise to the thief on the cross that they would be together today in paradise (Luke 23:43). The clause "He descended into hell" in the Apostles' Creed may have been well intended, but is controversial that some false denominations consider it optional or even exclude that portion of the creed from the BIBLE. PRAISE GOD

Please you have the TRUTH now so just REPENT from false teacher's doctrines and call on JESUS Please share now.
