Beth “house” beth “house of dead” and really “of dead ones.” Now, too many things to do and too little time to do it. Often times we tend to focus on the resurrection and don’t realize the resurrection was the doorway for some other work to happen. We kind of – there are some that hold the belief that the cross was the end. No the cross was the stair up to that final act earthly. But the work had to continue. That was the doorway. If we understand it’s a lot more than just being raised from the dead. The Syriac tells us something. That passage, if you’ll turn there quickly in the fourth chapter, the fourth chapter. We’ll get there eventually but I’m just going to show you why sometimes we have problems interpreting what is being said.
Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that the fourth chapter the 8th verse where it says, “wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up for above all heavens, that he might fill all things. Picture that. We’ll get to it. But picture that picture because a lot of you who’ve been around heard Dr. Scott teach on this particular passage. It wasn’t just we read so many times it says that his body wouldn’t see corruption but remember, I started off by saying “I’ll build my ekklesia and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it.” going down somewhere below the earth. Many interpret this and they say, “no, it’s not; it’s a misinterpretation.” well my other languages prove very well that he went to be; he went when he was, what was worked in Him, in Messiah.
