    “We all must die and are like water spilled on the ground that cannot be gathered up again, but the Lord does not take away life, instead He devises ways for the banished to be restored.”

    The risen Christ preaches to the dead

    “Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: by which also he went and preached to the spirits in prison; which once were disobedient, when once the long suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was in preparation, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water… for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”

    Dear Steve with St. preceding: Thank you for posting the passage under consideration.

    This is one passage of Scripture that befuddles the average one of our Bible believing species. Is it possible the apostle Peter was discombobulated?

    Or?

    Jesus Christ IS the Unlimited Son of God!

    The Unlimited Son Of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, preached to even the dead (the nekros). The results were spectacular with a capital S!

    Cause My people to breathe again

    1. The Spirit of the Lord poured out on parched (desert land). -Isa. 32.15-

    2. Give them singleness of heart /a new spirit/ a heart of flesh. -Ezek. 11.19-

    3. Put My Spirit in you / cause you to walk in My statutes (to carefully observe my ordinances). -Ezek. 37.27-

    4. The nations around you shall know I have replanted what was destitute. -Ezek. 37.26-

    5. I will pour out My Spirit on ALL PEOPLE. -Joel 2. 8-

    "Come then the four winds, O breathe breath on these slain, so they may live."
