MARK MATHEWS's comment on 2021-02-03 08:23:12:

First of all in Ephesians 4:8-12 GOD descends First to into Paradise, a great Water separates Hades=Hell with Paradise in the lower Parts of the Earth. GOD=Jesus 3 full Nights and 3 full Days in belly of the Earth, then arises with the Saint's to 3rd Heaven. Abraham and the Beggar are with them all. That is why Hades has more than doubled in size as GOD said it did. Paradise is no more. GOD took it all away at his Resurrection. Resurrected Saints where seen by Many, Matthew 27: 50-55. Proving the Resurrection of GOD and his Saints into Glory=3rd Heaven. Where we are hoping and Praying to get to. As they Ascended to Glory so will we. GOD= Lord Jesus Christ proves this in Bodily form, to show us all what wait's us all. Glory!!! I hope this helps all of you as it did me.

JESUS raised Lazarus Before his death on the cross. It's speak elsewhere In GOD'S WORD there dead know not anything for the memory of them are Gone neither do they praise nor give God's glory for they are asleep in the grave. The thief on the cross JESUS said to day thou wilt be with me in paradise I believe that he went that day. And on the day of JESUS crucifixion the earthpquake the dead holy people in Christ that arose i believe they to accended up with JESUS when he left this earth. As it's written upon Death the body returns to dust the spirit return to GOD himself the dead know not anything for the memories of them are gone all Will be raised in the last day

This is the fulfillment of the Spring Feasts. This was Yeshua offering the first fruits to the Father, just as the high priests did each year as a rehearsal. The Fall Feast (the harvest of the wheat) will be fulfilled upon his return.

I believe that the graves were opened, meaning us who are living but are living in spiritual darkness will have our spirit awakened. Coming out of a symbolic death. Satan is death. The Saints will rise from among us alive in this current time. The Saints will be awakened from their stoop.

In simple words and the most powerful event in the Bibile they went to the Holy city and there many saw them .I have seen so many movies in my life,like Kings Of Kings, The Greatest Story Ever told, and many more Oh!! the latest The Passion.Why do they skip this powerful message in the Bibile.


Believer of The Word's comment on 2011-05-16 02:53:17:

I believe that God purpose, was again to try and show man that He is supreme is all things. And this was another 'Lazarus' being raised from the dead experience. These saints again lived for a while, and died as Lazarus.

Where these saints in their glorified bodies? And is their any reference that they ascended in heaven after Jesus?
