Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

December 15 - Evening

"He was put to death in the body but made alive
in the Spirit.  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."

- First Peter 3:18-20

The Hopeless, Defeated Spirits in Prison

Verse 18 is communicating the thought that Jesus died to the physical world, but was made
alive to the spiritual world as the first resurrected man. This resurrection signified a victory that
had never before been attained. A physical man entered the spiritual dimension fully restored
to life. This indicated the battle with sin, death, evil and the dark kingdom of Satan had been
secured. Paul writes of this in First Corinthians:

“When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’
                         ‘Where, O death, is your victory?
                        Where, O death, is your sting?’
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
- First Corinthians 15:54-57

Peter continues in verse 19 to tell us that after  “being made alive” (or, resurrected) Jesus went
and “made proclamation” of this victory to the rebellious spirits (the descendants of the nephilim
of Genesis 6) who had been “imprisoned” (placed in everlasting chains until judgment in Tartarus which is found in the underworld of 2 Peter 2:4 and Jude 6, 7) for their disobedient “in the
days of Noah while the ark was being built.”  Jesus’ proclamation may have sounded similar
to his words to John on the isle of Patmos:

“I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
– Revelation 1:17-18

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Who builds a church to God, and not to Fame,
Will never mark the marble with his Name."
- Alexander Pope



Something to Ponder??
The Bible contains about
773,692 words.
It would take you approximately 70 hours
to read the whole
Bible out loud.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information


Eleutheria (Gr) - Liberty (Eng) - eleutheria is a Greek word that means "freedom" and "independence." In Classical Greek eleutheria contrasted the full citizen who belonged
to the polis (the city state) and participated with full rights of citizenship with the slave
who did not participate in political activities and had someone else determine the daily life.
The New Testament uses eleutheria to refer to our freedom from the legalistic Law of
the Jews (Galatians 5:1) and our freedom from sin and death (Romans 8:2).

  In a fortress on the border of Judea and Philistia near Ashdod the Yavneh Yam Ostracon was found and dated to the reign of Josiah, king of Judah, around 630-609 BC. On this ostracon (a piece of broken pottery that contains ancient writing) a worker is making an appeal to the governor to have his coat returned by the man who took it. The writer who is seeking the restoration of his coat because of two reasons: one, it was taken unjustly, or stolen; two, it is a violation of the social standard established by the Levitical law in Exodus 22:25-26. Also, this ostracon from 630 BC has the first mention of the Israel's Sabbath day in any extra-biblical writing. (See image and details here. See translation work here.)
