Descrizione

The book of Jesus in Sheol tells the story of the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a way that has been forgotten for a long time. Discover what the Bible says about the structure of the earth and the large underground waters, how Jesus descended below the waters to Hell (Sheol) and three days later, at the resurrection, He ascended up from the depths. The book explains the biblical truth about the salvation based on preachings of great Bible teachers such as E. W. Kenyon, Kenneth Hagin and Derek Prince.

The basic version of the book is a bachelor's thesis written in the 1990's. Since then, the text of this book has been taught in many christian churches and in Bible schools. This teaching about the suffering and resurrection of Jesus Christ has been a great success everywhere!

Over the years before email became common, this thesis had been xeroxed so many times that the copies became so pale that no further copies could be made. Someone then re-typed the whole thesis and printed it out, in order to make it available for further copies!

Later, it was distributed to even more people via e-mail.
Christians uploaded this preaching to several web pages, and it is even listed on a private website as one of the best Christian books among the works of Derek Prince, F. F. Boswort, C.H. Spurgeon and similar recognised authors.

Someone even made a video for the thesis and uploaded it to the Internet.

We truly recommend the book for every Christian as well as for anyone who is interested in the supernatural world!

Introduction

The main subject of this book is the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the great work of salvation. So as to understand the Biblical revelation about the suffering, the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, some other topics must first be addressed. Without these preliminary studies, the passages about Jesus’ suffering could only be interpreted as metaphoric or figurative language. This is why what the Bible says about the inner structure of the earth, where Hell is located and how the Scriptures describe it will be examined first. These details are vital in understanding the subsequent parts of the subject.

Then, some Old Testament examples and stories will be addressed which, in some of their elements, refer to salvation. Through these stories the different aspects of what the Bible has to say about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ will be examined. Finally, a closer look at the particular passages on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus will be studied.

This book is based completely on the Bible and the unfolding of Biblical teachings from the Scriptures. Many Biblical passages are included, which are accompanied by my short commentaries. Therefore, this book is also a Scriptural interpretation. While reading, you will discover an interpretation discipline: when a Biblical text is not a parable, primarily the literal meaning as opposed to the metaphoric meaning will be considered. This method of interpretation will allow the student to understand the Bible more.

Jesus ascended to Heaven after His resurrection, but He is continuing His work on the earth through the church. As the Bible says:

Mark 16:20

"And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs."

May Jesus Christ testify about Himself through the words about Him while you’re reading this book and may the Spirit of God touch you immensely!

PART 1

THE STRUCTURE OF THE EARTH AND THE PLACES OF PUNISHMENT

The Structure of the Earth

Many scientific theories are considered to be facts and are therefore discussed as facts today. These scientific theories, which are based on materialistic conceptions, have become part of today’s worldview because the scientific-materialistic worldview can be supported the best by these theories. However, these theories many times have several weak points.

Materialistic science cannot explain many things and can interpret only a part of the truth. All phenomena that science cannot understand or interpret fall under the so-called no-explanation category. Some examples of this no-explanation category include parapsychology, the beginning of life, and ancient mysteries. However, most of the phenomena and mysteries like them can be understood if based on the Biblical worldview. It seems that the Bible is not an old-fashioned Book…

Today when people think about the inner structure of the earth, they do so according to the scientific-materialistic theory. This very popular theory claims that the earth (together with the other planets and stars) began after the explosion of the energy mass (the Big Bang theory). The surface of the hot magma, which solidified in the cold space, has been constantly solidifying since the big bang. However, the core is still hot, and the plates are swimming and moving on this hot lava.

This book’s study of the inner structure of the earth will be based on the Biblical revelation, which is not in line with the scientific-materialistic theory.

The first and most fundamental difference is that, according to the Bible, the earth was created by God. In the book of Job, God Himself tells how He created the earth.

Job 38:1, 4-11

1 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said: ... 4 "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 "Or who shut in the sea with doors, When it burst forth and issued from the womb; 9 When I made the clouds its garment, And thick darkness its swaddling band; 10 When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; 11 When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!’

According to the description in this passage, the earth is laid on a cornerstone which is in the center of the earth. Only one cornerstone was laid by God, and He set the footings and the foundations upon this cornerstone. In the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament: אדנ (eden) means base, pedestal, pillar. This description is what the Bible calls the pillars of the earth.

The Bible also uses other words for these "footings or pillars,: including

מוסד (mosad) which means base or foundation.

Isaiah 24:18

And it shall be That he who flees from the noise of the fear Shall fall into the pit, And he who comes up from the midst of the pit Shall be caught in the snare; For the windows from on high are open, And the foundations of the earth are shaken.

The entire chapter of Isaiah 24 prophesies the catastrophes in the last days and describes the cosmic plagues striking the earth so fiercely that even the foundations of the planet will shake.

Micah 6:2

Hear, O you mountains, the Lord’s complaint, And you strong [unchanging] foundations of the earth. …

The prophet Micah says that the foundations are very stable and unchanging. More precisely, the word strong can be rendered as strong, firm, massive and hard.

2 Samuel 22:16

Then the channels of the sea were seen, The foundations of the world were uncovered, At the rebuke of the Lord, At the blast of the breath of His nostrils.

This verse reveals that the wrath of God and the light surrounding His presence caused the channels and the beds of the sea to become visible. The foundations of the earth were disclosed—uncovered. Apparently, God had already been to that place once, and He was angry.

Another interesting detail is revealed in the following verse:

Jeremiah 31:37

Thus says the Lord: "If heaven above can be measured, And the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel For all that they have done, says the Lord.

God is saying through the prophet Jeremiah that He will never come to hate the descendants of Israel nor will He reject them forever. For this reason, it is impossible to search out and uncover the foundations of the earth. The only source of information about these foundations (pillars) is the Word of God.

Yet another verse also claims that it’s impossible to discover the inner part of the earth:

Proverbs 25:3 (KJV)

the earth for depth is…unsearchable.

Interestingly, it was not only in Biblical times that the technology was insufficient to search the inside of the earth. Even today scientists know very little about the earth’s inside. Modern scientific machinery can only drill to a certain point into the earth’s core. Scientists can only reason and hypothesize theories as a result of gathering this limited information. This information gathering is like somebody’s trying to predict what the inside of an apple is like merely by examining its skin.

Another word in the Bible referring to the pillars of the earth is:

עמוד (amud) which means pillar.

This word is derived from the term erect (e.g., a statue or a pillar) but can also be rendered as firm, remain or endure. This term is the expression the Bible uses for the pillar of cloud and fire that led the Israelites during the exodus as well as for the pillars in the holy tabernacle and in Solomon’s Temple.

Psalm 75:3

The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved; I set up its pillars firmly.

The entire seventy-fifth Psalm addresses the judgment as well as that God-appointed time when He will judge the wicked people uprightly. In the days of judgment, the people of the earth will be scattered and disappear, but God will make the pillars of the earth firm so that they are not broken.

This next verse is also about God’s judgments.

Job 9:6

He shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble.

In the time of the patriarch Job, people believed that the earth is laid on pillars. God is able to shake the earth so much that its pillars will tremble.
