Spirits who died are those spirits who once were alive at the time of Noah having physical bodies who then perished in the great flood.
Spirits died? When? Where did you read that, please?
The Bible does not say anything about spirits that were once alive and died. !!!?
Where did you read that?
Again, what does your cited verses in 2Peter, Jude 6, Genesis 6, and Job 1 have anything to do with Noah’s day and the great flood from which 1Peter 3:18-20 was referring to?
They all speak of the same account - when angels - spirits, left their original dwelling place - heaven, and came to earth, commited the sin of taking women, having sexual relations with them, resulting in hybrid offspring - Giants, which contributed to the abundant violence on the earth.
The point of Jesus preaching to the spirits in prison was referring to people who once had bodies who then died and those spirits continued on in some sort of restricted or prison state or in a damned state.
That's what you are saying. You have not quoted any scripture in the Bible that says Jesus preached to people that once had bodies.
May I remind you that you admitted that that belief makes no sense.
"people who once had bodies who then died and those spirits continued on"
Think about what you are saying.
If a spirit has a body that dies, did the spirit die?
How then would the spirit need to be resurrected ?
However you try to make it make sense, it never will make sense.
Either it died or it did not. It cannot be part dead part alive.
Are you giving serious thought to what you believe?
Did Jesus die or did he not die?
The Bible says he died. He died as a human - in the flesh... is what the Bible says.
He was raised up - resurrected as a spirit, on the third day... after which he went and preached to the spirits - angels - wicked ones.
Jesus was not preaching while dead. How could he? He was dead.
Was it just his body that died? Then his body died, and not him... but that's not what the Bible says. That's what you say.
A snake sheds its skin, but the snake has not died.
Jesus is no snake, shedding a body. If that's the way it works, then he never died... but he did, according to the Bible.
You are saying otherwise. Are you? Again... did Jesus die?
Then would you admit, what you believe makes no sense as you rightly said. You can't make it.
Of course, we have the freedom to believe what we want, but believing what we want to, regardless of what the Bible says, has consequences - not good ones at all.
Jesus said... "It is in vain that they keep worshipping me, for they teach commands of men as doctrines." (Matthew 15:9) .
HOW could Jesus have taught these spirts as described in 1Peter if he wasn’t made alive u til third day?
Preach. The Bible says he preached.
As a spirit himself, can Jesus not preach to spirits? Certainly he can.
Yes. The Bible says he was raised up - made alive, as a spirit.
As one spirit to another, Jesus preached to them - probably a reminder of their imminent destruction.
Jesus doing that teaching happened between his death and resurrection. His resurrection didn’t happen until the third day. That does not fit at all with your interpretation of what being made alive according to the spirit means.
That's what you believe, and we have already established that makes no sense. Neither is it scriptural.
Again, Jesus was not teaching, and he could do nothing until he was alive again.
A dead person is not alive. Resurrection means to make alive. Jesus was dead.
Can we stick to the scriptures. The beliefs you present here don't lead to salvation for anyone.
At least we can see where conflicts arrive. Not from the Bible, but from beliefs persons hold on to.
Who taught you this, may I ask?
To be resurrected is only meant to be a spiritual one does not fit BECAUSE according to your definition Jesus couldn’t do anything until the third day since it wasn’t until the third day when he was resurrected. He couldn’t teach any spirts in prison BECAUSE according to you Jesus wasn’t made alive according to the spirit. That contradicts 1Peter 3:18-20.
You keep mentioning one scripture. Which does not say what you believe, but you show no scripture to support the things you are saying.
According to the Bible, Jesus was raised on the third day, as a spirit,
Can you read that? What is it saying?
Oh, it's read from right to left - opposite to English.
(Matthew 16:21) . . .Jesus began explaining to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes and be killed, and on the third day be raised up
(Matthew 17:22, 23) 22
It was while they were gathered together in Galilee that Jesus said to them: “The Son of man is going to be betrayed into men’s hands, 23 and they will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised up
.” And they were very much grieved.
Also, HOW does resurrection mean it’s just a spiritual one when according to your definition of resurrection means being restored to life? When physical death occurs the body loses function. So in order to be resurrected the function of the physical body has to be restored.
Do you understand the difference between spiritual and spirit?
What do you think Satan is? What is an angel?
(Hebrews 1:7) . . .“He makes his angels spirits
, and his ministers a flame of fire.”
(Hebrews 1:13, 14) 13
But about which of the angels
has he ever said: “Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet”? 14 Are they not all spirits
for holy service, sent out to minister for those who are going to inherit salvation?
I never said what you are thinking. Evidently you are the person who is thinking of spiritual.
I think you may be getting confused with the concept taught to you that man has a living spirit that lives on.
I can see how that teaching has made things confusing to many.
Also, HOW could the resurrection be only defined as a spiritual resurrection when according to you the spirit never came to life to begin with until after being dead physically? There is no restoration involved.
What is a spiritual resurrection?
I am guessing you have in your mind, not a literal resurrection.
Search as you might, nowhere would you find me saying anything about a spiritual resurrection... in that sense.
Being raised as a spirit is literally a person whom have died physically being raised to life as a spirit being.
See 1 Corinthians 15, and again...
It's as simple as that. It's nothing like the confusing idea that a person has a spirit that never dies, and so that person is resurrected spiritually - that is, godly. If that make it any sense..
That idea is not scriptural, but sadly, it is taught in many churches.
I really hope you see who are imposters (2 Corinthians 11:12-15) ... please. You seem like a nice person.
