There was a time when I believed and preached that it was necessary for Jesus to go to hell on my behalf after dying on the cross. By His grace I realised what deception I had been in, and immediately repented and sought God’s forgiveness. I fell into this deception having been influenced by the “teachings of men” rather than the Word of God. E W Kenyon, Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland, whom I considered men of God, having much to offer, when it came to expounding the Word of God were the main perpetrators of this lie. Kenyon and Hagin believed and preached this lie without repentance until death. As far as I know, Copeland still believes and teaches this false doctrine, as do many other faith and Pentecostal preachers as well as more conservative teachers of the Word. 1Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; This scripture is quite obviously directed at the church and warns us of the fact that there are teachings and doctrines that are contrary to the Word of God. This fact is as old as the New Testament itself. 1Tim 1:20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. It was Paul’s divinely appointed authority that allowed him to do this by the Spirit, because he felt that the doctrines that they believed and taught amounted to blasphemy and were a reproach on the Divine character of God. To preach error is to present God or His Word in a false light, claiming it to be true. Many, desiring to “qualify” as ministers of the Gospel attend Universities, Bible schools and colleges that endorse false doctrines and teachings. If these ministers accept these false doctrines and teachings as truth and begin preaching them to unsuspecting congregations, the results are often devastating, as many are brought into bondage. There are many different Christian denominations that are determined and categorised by the doctrines they believe, all from the same Bible. Protestants, Roman Catholics, Baptists, the many different Charismatic and Pentecostal churches. There are those that are so bound by tradition that there are absolutely no signs or wonders that follow the preaching of the Word of God. Then there are those, performing signs and wonders but preaching a false Gospel, by a different spirit, often, for their own personal gain. Matt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Act 5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.) We read in Gal. 1:8: the following strong warning which Paul wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the church of Galatia, and is still applicable to the church today. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. This might sound like a harsh word, but it is important to understand that anyone who purposefully distorts and twists the Word of God is guilty. Guilty of the same sin as Satan was, when he beguiled Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, by saying “has God indeed said” (Gen.3:1).
the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. What concerns me is how many bornagain preachers continue to teach that Jesus went to the place of torment after His death. then are ye My disciples indeed.One of these false doctrines taught is that Jesus had to go to hell and suffer at the hands of Satan in order to fully redeem mankind. I believe it will become evident why Satan would want this lie to prevail. There are many sincere children of God who have been fed this lie and it is my sincere prayer that they will come to know the truth and be set free. They declare that if Jesus had not gone to hell for you. which nullifies the cross. you would have had to go. Their lie continues by declaring that Jesus had to die spiritually and became the first man to be bornagain when He rose on the third day. and the truth shall make you free. There is no way that one can believe that He went to hell to suffer further in order to complete the Atonement. The propagators of this teaching declare that Jesus had to go to hell in order to get the “keys” which Satan had taken from Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. and won the victory over death. and by which we have been forgiven and reconciled to Father God. His aim has always been firstly to detract from the finished work of Calvary. If ye continue in My word. believe that His blood cleanses from all sin. Having read this book. 1 Cor. and in addition to this. in a nutshell.” Jesus is our sacrificial Lamb. It proclaims that the death of Jesus on the cross was not sufficient to purchase our salvation on its own. This would be misplaced faith.. And ye shall know the truth. It has also been used to promote the false teaching that souls go to Purgatory after death. . a sacrifice for the sin of man. This false doctrine claiming that Jesus went to hell. John 8:3132 As we consider this subject in the light of God’s truth. having successfully wrestled with Satan and his cohorts. Jesus said: …. there needed to be more suffering. thus He was tortured for three days and three nights in hell and there became bornagain. in fact implies that His shed blood and physical death on the cross were not sufficient to pay the penalty for sin! This lie has caused many Christians’ faith to waiver. This.. is the essence of this abominable lie. hell and the grave. and was raised up from the dead as the first fruit of many brethren. Let us start by looking at what this devilish doctrine teaches. Heb 9:22: ……. where he was defeated once and for all by the shed blood of Jesus. It is interesting to note that nowhere in Scripture is it written that God demanded a “substitute for man in hell”. It was through His shed blood. a sin offering. They maintain that Jesus was tormented and tortured by Satan and his demons during those three days and three nights He spent in hell. there will be no doubt in your mind that it was on the cross that Jesus gained the victory over sin and Satan and most certainly not in hell. And secondly to discredit and belittle Jesus. without shedding of blood is no remission. Purgatory is not mentioned in the Bible but some Christians have been taught that it is a place where souls are purified by punishment. His Holy Blood alone that atonement was made for our sins. but that He eventually prevailed. God requires the shedding of Blood. but as with all atonement requirements. They proclaim that Jesus was born from death to life in hell. the Son of God. 5:7b: “For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
Sheol. without any restriction of happiness or misery. Hades is used of a place of torment. 1 Pet. neither His flesh did see corruption. for example. 2. God then made Him alive in the spirit and in hell and He became a “new creation”. 3:19: By which also He (Jesus) went and preached unto the spirits in prison. see. "the unseen world". Jesus was impregnated with the sin of the world. Sheol can only mean "the grave". Hades and Gehenna. It is in this sense that the creeds say of our Lord. The physical death of Jesus on the cross did not pay the penalty for sin. Satan became His master. As I searched the Bible. The word Hades. used by our translators to render the Hebrew. Matt_11:23. 1Co_15:55. the first person to ever be “ born again”. . But in many cases. Satan took Jesus to hell. In the New Testament. the Son of the Almighty God had to descend into hell in order to further suffer torment so that our sins might be forgiven or to acquire any authority (power) there. These three are the main scriptures they use: Acts 2: 27: Because Thou wilt not leave My soul in hell. or in general. without deciding whether it be the place of misery or of happiness. neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption. In the Old Testament.THE DECEPTION What this false doctrine actually teaches is the following: Jesus died two deaths first physically and then spiritually. In fact the conclusion that I came to is that JESUS NEVER WENT TO HELL AT ALL! Let us start by examining the definition of hell according to Smith’s dictionary: Hell. Acts 2:31: He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ. and is therefore rendered in the Authorized Version by the word "hell". I did not find any scripture that substantiates or suggests the fact that Jesus Christ. "He went down into hell. Then only had He paid the penalty and met the claims of justice. Elsewhere in the New Testament. Jesus’ Spirit was taken to the depths of hell where Satan tormented Him with all the suffering that hell had to offer for three days and three nights. 1Sam_2:6. that His soul was not left in hell. it seems to involve a notion of punishment. and is rendered thus in the Authorized Version. this is the word generally. however. the nature of Satan took possession of His Spirit. Jesus was the first born out of spiritual death. the unseen world. Gen_37:35. 3. and unfortunately. this translation misleads the reader. Act_2:31. It is clear that in many passages of the Old Testament. It really means the place of the dead. In other passages. like Sheol sometimes means merely "the grave". Rev_20:13. Teachers of this lie base their doctrine on scriptures in the Bible which are quoted out of context and based on an incorrect translation and understanding of certain words. Gen_42:38." meaning the state of the dead in general. Job_14:13. The place where every sinner goes. "hell" is the translation of two words. When He died.
the word “hell” actually refers to the Grave. divided into two parts. Joh 1:14a And the Word was made flesh. eight souls were saved by water. For the righteous it is paradise. Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word. when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah. and preach righteousness to them. This is confirmed in the very next verse. therefore Jesus was preaching through Noah. The two areas were divided by a deep gulf that could not be crossed. because His resurrection had not yet taken place. and only once translated "grave". for the unrighteous a place of torment. almost the universal. The final enemy. *Jesus preached to those spirits in prison when they were still living on earth. but quickened by the Spirit. It is used eleven times in the New Testament. bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. it has been the prevalen t. notion that Hades is an intermediate state between death and resurrection. but saved Noah the eighth person. (Lazarus and the rich man – Luke 16: 1931) The lake of fire (ghehennah) is a place that God has prepared for the devil. Shehole. the just for the unjust. which sometime were disobedient. 1Cor_15:55. 19:20. 3:1820. 1 Pet. verses 27 and 31. and dwelt among us. 1Pe 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh. 2Pet_2:4. A third scripture used to support their theory that Jesus went to hell is. that He might bring us to God. In Acts chapter 2. 2:5 And spared not the old world. (Rev. I do not believe that Jesus would have preached the “Gospel” to those spirits in prison. namely death. 3:1820 was accomplished through Noah based on the following: *Jesus is the eternal Word (John. The word most frequently used. His angels and those names which are not written in the Lamb’s book of life. one the abode of the blest and the other of the lost. and the Word was God. which reads: For Christ also hath once suffered for sins. that is. *Noah was a preacher of righteousness. because . but the answer of a good conscience toward God. a fit symbol of the wicked and their destruction. This was originally the valley of Hinnom. south of Jerusalem. which as we have already stated. consequently. where the filth and dead animals of the city were cast out and burned. 14. which is a place where the remains of the dead body are placed.Luk_16:23. 2 Pet. (occurring twelve times). 15.1:1). 21:8 – read these verses to see who will end up in the lake of fire. means grave or pit. by which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison. was conquered when Jesus was raised from the dead. 20:10. wherein few. in the New Testament for the place of future punishment is Gehenna or Gehenna of fire. Regarding this third scripture quoted above. and the Word was with God. being put to death in the flesh. a preacher of righteousness. while the ark was a preparing.) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: Why would Jesus only have preached to those specific spirits that had died in the flood at the time Noah? Why would He not have preached to the spirits of all disobedient and unrepentant people that had lived before and after the flood of Noah? I believe that Jesus' preaching mentioned in 1 Pet. The Gospel is the death. The place where the spirit and soul awaits the time of resurrection is divided into two areas.. burial and resurrection of Jesus. having quickened Noah by His Spirit to plead with them. etc.
They knew therefore. had been done. and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son. as foretold and verified in prophecy. 1 verse 18) Most people imagine these to be a bunch of keys. his final destination is hell. On the other hand there is so much scripture to support the truth that Jesus completed His redemptive work on the CROSS. the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. it WAS FINISHED! All that His Father had entrusted Him to do. JESUS TRIUMPHED OVER SATAN ON THE CROSSNOT IN HELL. without shedding of blood is no remission. rebellious.” Jesus is our sacrificial Lamb. a sin offering. God requires the shedding of Blood. 5:7b: “For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. nor did He have to go through further torment and torture. 1:13) He certainly did not have to fight the devil in hell to acquire them.” (Col. and a thousand times no! Jesus never went to hell! That was never a part of God’s plan of salvation and so there was never a need for it! The Bible declares that Jesus triumphed on the CROSS. was the exact moment when sin and the devil were dealt with. Satan knows that in Father God’s perfect time. And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death. but it simply means that He had total authority. We read in Hebrews 2:1415: Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood. The law had been fulfilled and eternal salvation had been obtained for those who believe. There is no scriptural evidence whatsoever to support the fact that Satan is in charge. His suffering was complete on the cross at Calvary. of or even has access to hell. (Gehenna) Satan would love to have people believe that Jesus went there first. a sacrifice for the sin of man. God warned them and gave them opportunity to repent while Noah was building the ark. albeit for different reasons!! No. This then sums up the foundation upon which this unbiblical theory is built. 1 Cor. And Jesus did this on the cross. but as in all atonement requirements. They were disobedient. It was on the Cross that Jesus triumphed over death and the grave and gained the power over them.. The moment the sacrifice of the Holy Lamb of God (Jesus) was made. . Heb 9:22: ……. When Jesus said on the cross “It is finished”. and by which we have been forgiven and reconciled to Father God. Therefore he correctly calls them spirits now in prison. It is interesting to note that nowhere in Scripture is it written that God demanded a “substitute for man in hell”. the devil. (acquired the keys of hell grave and death according to: Rev. It seems incredible that this teaching is founded on such flimsy evidence to back it up scripturally. that is. He also Himself likewise took part of the same. They were given fair warning through Noah's preaching by the Spirit. were saved in the ark. unrepentant and unbelieving.they were dead in sin. His Holy Blood alone that atonement was made for our sins. It was through His shed blood. Col. They had already died when Peter refers to them. God “delivered us from the power of darkness. who believed and were obedient. what was about to come upon them. Noah and his family. Therefore it would be foolish to entertain the thought that Jesus had to meet Satan in hell in order to gain the final victory.
while He was yet alive. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day. being reconciled. who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross. which was contrary to us. And there was Mary Magdalene. triumphing over them in it. despising the shame. that He and Judas conspired together to arrange His own death. Heb. Much more then. Rom. For if. others say that He was a homosexual. (The cross) Jesus paid the ultimate price by dying on the cross. Now the next day. 5:811: But God commendeth His love toward us. 27:5866 He went to Pilate. by whom we have now received the atonement. 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. and took it out of the way. when we were enemies. being now justified by His blood. and say unto the people. make it as sure as ye can. he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth. and departed. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body. which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre. we remember that that deceiver said. having forgiven you all trespasses. sitting over against the sepulchre. They claim that He did not really die. and the other Mary. nailing it to His cross. Some say that He married Mary Magdalene. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us. And not only so. lest His disciples come by night. we shall be saved from wrath through Him. BIBLICAL TRUTH THAT JESUS DIED PHYSICALLY There have been many fables surrounding the person of Jesus. much more. being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh. After three days I will rise again. and begged the body of Jesus. And having spoiled principalities and powers. And laid it in his own new tomb. Yet another fable states that His body was stolen from the tomb so that His disciples could falsely prove His resurrection. Ye have a watch: go your way. Saying. hath He quickened together with Him. we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son. Sir. But what does the Bible say concerning His death? Matt. It was complete. and steal Him away. but that He went to live in Arabia. but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ. He made a shew of them openly. that followed the day of the preparation. and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. . was an Eternal Sacrifice that is forever established. His. Pilate said unto them. while we were yet sinners. in that. Christ died for us.2:1315: And you. the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate. nothing more was required and most important of all. He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first. and yet others say that He faked His death. we shall be saved by His life. Every promise and prophecy regarding His death on the cross was fulfilled.
John 2:19: Jesus answered and said unto them. The fact that the body of Jesus was in the tomb (grave) for three days was also the fulfillment of His own prophecy concerning Himself. These prophecies are divinely inspired by God. Father God used prophecy in the Old Testament to confirm the suffering Messiah who would be sacrificed for the sin of man. John 11:25: Jesus said unto her. Only the God of the Bible knows the future. We can now understand that when Acts 2:27 and 31 were quoted it was simply confirming that the prophetic words of Jesus were honoured and fulfilled. Our proof that the Bible is the only true Word of the only True God. 12 (750 BC) ……. Buddhist. sealing the stone. He has proved without any shadow of doubt that He alone is God. I am the resurrection. so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. and their fulfilment serves as proof that our God exists and that His Word is true. Islam. proves the importance of His sacrificial death. whom He raised from the dead. and setting a watch. which delivered us from the wrath to come. Destroy this temple. the God of Abraham. John 13:18 He would die with malefactors Isaiah 53:9. The Lord in His wisdom made sure that Pilate gave the instruction for the tomb of Jesus to be under constant guard by Roman soldiers who feared for their lives should they fail to successfully do so. yet shall he live: 1Thess. even Jesus. The accuracy of the Word of God is proven as we see from the following prophetic scriptures in the Old Testament which were fulfilled: He would be betrayed by a friend for 30 pieces of silver – Psalm 41:9. His body would not be left in the grave nor would it see corruption (return to dust) but in fact be raised on the third day.. This is a favourite argument used by Moslems implying that the body of Jesus was stolen. 1:10: And to wait for His Son from heaven. Hindu etc) have any prophecies contained in their socalled “holy” books. Fulfilled Luke 22:37 He would be buried by a rich man Isaiah 53:9 . though he were dead. PROPHECY THAT WAS FULFILLED AT THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS The fact that there were numerous prophecies fulfilled when Jesus was crucified. None of the other religions (e. and in three days I will raise it up. because no other religion can claim to have had its “god” prophesy any future events that have come to pass.g. and most of these prophecies have come to pass already just exactly as prophesied. and made the sepulchre sure.So they went.

(Matt. and I have power to take it again. this state of being utterly God forsaken.” (Luke 23:43). Luke 23:46 Not a bone in His body would be broken – Exodus 12:46. but I lay it down of myself. “Assuredly. Fulfilled Matthew 27:46. It is important for us to know that Jesus did not become sinful or a sinner but he was made to be a sin offering for us. 27:5760) . 31:5 ……. than any physical agony He had ever experienced! This should be a valuable lesson to us because. The work of salvation had been completed and the full price for sin was paid. why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (Matt. It was at the ninth hour that Jesus raised His voice in anguish and cried out. He would enter Jerusalem and willingly suffer and lay down His life for His sheep. “My God. before dying Jesus said to the criminal on the cross next to Him. Jesus called Him “God!” After this Jesus called out “It is finished” (John 19:30) and “Father. I have power to lay it down. I say to you. He also tells the criminal on the cross next to Him that: “Today you will be with Me in Paradise. Jesus always addressed His Heavenly Father as “Father”. My God. Luke 24:46 SUMMARY Jesus made it very clear that it was in His power to lay down His life and that no man could take it from Him. He then said: “Father. He never once opened His mouth in complaint. will be our eternal destiny. 53:7). John 10:18 No man taketh it from me. Zechariah 12:10 …….. Mark 15:34. John 19:36 His side would be pierced – Psalm 22:16. into Thy hands I commend My Spirit. I remind you that Jesus also said upon that cross as He died: “It is finished!” In other words He proclaimed that His mission was complete. which He bore upon Himself. into Thy hands I commend My Spirit. if we are not born again. When Jesus suffered all this physical torture and pain. (Is. “NOT SATAN I AM DESCENDING TO HELL TO GET THE KEYS FROM YOU”. Fulfilled Matthew 16:21. Fulfilled John 19:37 He would rise “bodily” from the dead on the third day ……. Jesus knew that at the appointed time of the feast of the Passover. Then His body was buried and He rose physically from the grave on the third day. and this agony was greater for Him. Jesus felt forsaken of God for a brief while. Fulfilled Matthew 27:34. Fulfilled John 19:24 Even His dying words were foretold – Psalms 22:1. It is well documented that Jesus’ body was buried that very day in a rich man’s grave. John 19:29 Men would cast lost for His garments – Psalm 22:18 …. Numbers 9:12 ……… Fulfilled Psalm 34:20.” Paradise certainly does not house Satan and his demons.…… Fulfilled Matthew 27:5760 He would be given vinegar and gall – Psalm 69:21 (1000 BC) …. Remember. when He felt separated from His Father because of having to die for our sins. The Bible tells us that He went as a lamb to the slaughter.
due to the acute heart failure. Jesus said on the Cross: Father. the soldiers would take an iron rod and break the legs below the knees of those who had not yet died before sunset.

When they came to Jesus however. that brought again form the dead our Lord Jesus. He was already dead. The importance of this truth is indicated in the following scriptures: Heb.

I believe it was His right side so that it would penetrate His intestines. a curse would return to that land [Gal. was released and poured out of the wound. signifying that Jesus had paid the FULL PRICE for the separation that had existed between God and man. 12:24: And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant. and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from sin. 1 John 1:7: But if we walk in the light as He is in the light. into THY HANDS I commend My Spirit (Luke 23:46) 3. and they would then die of suffocation. Jesus said on the Cross: it is FINISHED (John 19:39) He HAD paid the FULL PRICE. Reconciliation between God the Father and man was restored. 13:2021: Now the God of peace. to whom be glory for ever and ever. 2:13: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the Blood of Christ. 1:1819: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible . 4.
