1. Was our redemption really purchased in hell?

Did Jesus taste spiritual death for every man? Did his spirit and inner man go to hell in my place? Was it really the physical death on the cross that paid the price for sins?

THE THEORY:
Some people say AND TEACH that Jesus had to die spiritually and go to hell for three days and be tormented by satan in order to purchase our complete redemption, but let us see what the word really says about it!

THE TRUTH:
IN SUMMARY:
Paul did not glory in any mythical spiritual death of Christ, nor did he speak of a glorious redemption completed in hell. NO! NO! NO! It was in the cross that Paul centered his attention and gloried.

The shedding of Christ's blood which secured the forgiveness of sins, was made possible because it was blood poured forth in a violent sacrificial death made on our behalf. Romans 5P; 8:9; 8:32; Ephesians 5:2; Galatians 3:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:10; Isaiah 53.

..the life of the flesh is in the blood..it is the blood that maketh atonement for the soul. Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22.
Heb 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified thru the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

IT DOESN'T GET MUCH PLAINER THAN THAT. You also can read Romans 7:4; Colossians 1:22; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18; 4:1, etc. In the Old Testament, the sacrifice to God to atone for their sins was the physical death of animals. In the New Testament there is no further need for such animal sacrifices for we have the physical death of Jesus, the one, true and only perfect sacrifice by which the sins of man are atoned.

In another article we talked about "Did Jesus become sin on the cross." Going back to Matthew 26:28 it says "This is my blood ..which is shed for many for the remission of sins." It was talking about His physical death. It did NOT say. This is my spirit which was tortured for you in hell for the remission of your sins. NO! NO! It did NOT say: This is my spiritual death which atoned for your sins. NO! NO!

NO. WHAT IT DOES SAY IS: This is my BLOOD (his physical death under the OT sacrificial system.) which atoned for our sins because He was the perfect sacrifice. It is the blood sacrifice alone that atones.

COMMUNION IN THE NEW TESTAMENT: There is no emblem for his spiritual death, because there is no spiritual death. Flee from any such teachings or anyone promoting them!
