was buried, he descended into hell, the third day he resurrected from the dead, he ascended into heaven”. From this quote it is certain that Jesus spent about three days in hell, but I know you will be anxious to know why he went to hell.
Yes, he went to a part f hell called limbo. Limbo is a place where those good souls who died before Christ were detained because they could not go into the kingdom of heaven till Christ has opened it for them.
From the word of Christ “I will destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days”.
So, Christ used this three days in limbo to free those good souls and unlock the gate of heaven, those who did good and died before Christ came went to limbo because they could not go up to the kingdom of heaven till Christ has opened it for them, that is, Christ alone holds the key to the kingdom of heaven. From the word of Christ “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me”.
All Christians should be proud and happy because Christ have opened wide the gate of heaven for all righteous men. From the scriptures “ when Christ died , the cloth used to cover the temple was torn into two” this shows that the gate of heaven have been opened for both the Jews and gentiles, thanks.
Always remember that you read it first from amakvitaa.
