Jesus didn’t preach in hell
1 Peter 3
After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits— to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, v19-20.
I just don’t believe he went to hell to preach salvation. There can’t be salvation in death.
I just don’t believe he went to hell to gloat and punch his fist and say “stick that!” Why do that?
More importantly what good is this piece of information to those who are suffering right now as Peter’s generation were.
I believe this:
Noah suffered as he told people about God’s Kingdom and calling them to repent. Christ was speaking through him in his generation. He suffered but was delivered from the flood along with only 8 in total (not a great revival!)
Jesus suffered though he was sinless. Yet he was delivered and raised by God.
The point is we will suffer as we witness and as Christ speaks through us. But no matter how good the results are we will be delivered by God. Glory awaits.
