What really happened after Jesus gave up the ghost and died on the cross?
The Gospels tell us that Joseph of Aramathea and Nicodemus took His
body down from the cross and laid it in Joseph's tomb. And the
Scriptures reveal in various places that His spirit and soul descended
into hell. What happened during the three days and three nights in
which Jesus was hell?
This message is entitled, "The Mystery of Redemption: From The Cross To The Throne". In this powerful message, Bishop Kouri unfolds the mystery of our redemption and explains
the chronological order of events that took place as Jesus' descended
into hell where He suffered for three days and three nights, His
victory over Satan, death, and hell, His resurrection on Easter Sunday
morning, His ascension and exaltation to the right hand of God in
Heaven, and His enthronement on the throne of David, where He governs
the nations today as King of kings and Lord of lords!
This is the true message of Christianity proclaimed by Peter on the
day of Pentecost, also by Paul and all the original apostles of Jesus
Christ; it is the authentic foundation of the Christian faith that
enabled the saints of the early Church to overcome the power of the
Devil and turn their world upside down.
Part 1 "The Mystery of Redemption, From The Cross To The Throne"---
deals with what the Scriptures reveal about the the physical and
spiritual sufferings of Jesus as he was made sin for us, died on the
cross, and descended into hell to be tormented by the powers of the
Kingdom of darkness.
Part 2 "The Mystery of Redemption, From The Cross To The Throne"---climaxes
with Jesus' triumph over all the powers of the kingdom of darkness, His
taking of the keys of death and hell from Satan, the release of the Old
Testament saints like Moses and Elijah and moving them from paradise
into heaven, the taking-up again or resurrection of His own body by
Jesus Himself at the tomb of Joseph of Aramatheia, His ascent into
heaven as High Priest to sprinkle His blood on the altar of God in
heaven to establish the New Covenant as the foundation of His Messianic
Kingdom, His amazing resurrection appearances, and many other amazing
events that took place as Jesus was exalted and seated on the throne of
David the right hand of God the Father in heaven.
note the 15th c. painting above; ancient Christian artists often
depicted Jesus triumphing over Satan and the demonic powers of hell and
then moving paradise into heaven. Moses, Elijah, and King David are
among the Old testament saints portrayed.)
