Many people today believe that when our Lord and Savior died for us that His soul went to heaven or to a place called paradise.
Does this agree or contradict the Bible? Today, we’re going to find out.
All you have to is read the words in the Bible and believe what the Bible says. Many people today do not care at all what the Bible ACTUALLY says, and they proclaim to be Christians.
What Does The Bible Actually Say?
Now, let’s get on to explaining why the soul of Jesus Christ went to hell.
First of all, Acts 2:31 tells us very clearly that the soul of Jesus was not left in hell.
Acts 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
So, this Scripture is talking about the resurrection of Christ. His soul was not left in hell. What else do you want to hear or see? To me, that’s very easy to understand.
“THAT HIS SOUL WAS NOT LEFT IN HELL.” That means the soul of Jesus Christ went to hell, but His soul was not left there in hell. Why? Because Jesus was raised from the dead or resurrected from the dead just like the Bible says in Acts 2:31.
The Old Testament And New Testament Go Together Perfectly
If you still don’t believe that the soul of Jesus went to hell, here’s another verse from the Book of Psalms.
Psalm 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Here we see the EXACT same thing: “thou wilt not leave my soul in Hell”. The Holy One is Jesus Christ. It’s no one else. This verse is quoted in Acts 2:27.
Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
During soul winning, I’ve heard people say that the soul of Jesus didn’t go to hell. My Dad clearly shows them Acts 2:27 and Acts 2:31, but they won’t believe the words of the Bible.
The Burnt Offering
You still don’t believe it? Okay, here is some more proof.
In the Old Testament, people sacrificed lambs for a burnt offering.
Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
Abraham is actually prophesying about Jesus because God doesn’t give him a lamb.
Genesis 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
Notice there is a ram there and not a lamb. This is prophecy.
Jesus Is The Burnt Offering For Our Sins
Jesus is the Lamb of God. Jesus is “THE” burnt offering for our sins.
Sacrificing animals did not forgive sin. All of this was a picture of things to come.
John 1:35-36 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
Why do you think the Bible refers to Jesus as the Lamb of God?
Jesus is the Passover Lamb. He is the offering for our sins. He died for us and His soul went to hell.
His soul didn’t go to a compartment in hell called paradise. That is a man-made teaching that doesn’t exist in the Bible. The body of Jesus went to the tomb, His spirit returned to the Father, and His soul went to hell.
Jesus Was Dead, But Is Now Alive Forever
If you still don’t believe the words in the Bible, here is more proof from the Lamb of God Himself.
Revelation 1:17-18 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Jesus Christ himself says “I am he that liveth, and was dead.” When someone is “dead,” they are going to hell when they die.
If you have everlasting life, you aren’t considered to be dead. Your body will die, but your soul is alive and will never die. The “dead” are the people who go to hell when their body passes away.
The body of Jesus Christ died, and His soul died and went to hell. Why did His soul go to hell?
His soul went to hell because He took all of our sins with Him. He had no sin. But we do. We sin. We mess up every day. But thank God that Jesus Christ took all of our sins to hell with Him.
Jesus did everything for us, but we won’t simply listen to His words within the Bible. Jesus knows where He went when He died. He knows that His soul went to hell but was not left there. Yet, humans want to argue with HIS WORDS in the Bible.
Do You Still Not Believe The Soul of Jesus Went To Hell?
If you still don’t believe God and His words, you should read John 8:47 over and over again.
John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Please simply change your mind today and believe what God says in HIS WORDS. If you don’t believe my words today, please read the Bible for yourself and believe what God says.
I hope you now understand why the soul of Jesus Christ went to hell. I hope this has helped you.
