Our Lord yielded His spirit to the Father, died, and at some time between death and resurrection, visited the realm of the dead where he delivered a message to spirit beings [probably fallen angels [see Jude 6] who were somehow related to the period before the flood in Noah's time [verse 20 of Jude 6] makes this clear.
Peter does not tell us what he proclaimed to these improsoned spirits, but it could not be a message of redemption since angels cannot be saved. Why is this?
[Eph. 4:8-10] also seems to indicate that Christ went to "paradise" [Luke 16:20; 23: 43] and took to heaven all those who had believed in him prior to his death.
The Bible isn't quite clear on where he went and what he said. What we can know for sure is that Jesus was not giving people a second chance or salvation. The Bible tells us that we ace judgment after death [Hebrews 9:27], not a second chance. Perhaps this is one of the mysteries we will understand once we reach glory.

The Bible doesn't say what happened to Jesusnbetween the ages of 13 and 30. Ancient scrolls reveal that Jesus spent 17 years in the Orient. From age 13 to 24, he was both student and teacher. The story of the pilgrim from Jerusalem to Benares was recorded by Brahmanistic historians. This is where people get the idea he went to India, and Tibet and was called St. Issa.
Here are some stories/theories loating around on these lost years:
1. He went to Japan. Lived and died thre. A twin brother took his place as Messiah of Israel and was cruciied.
2. He went to Egypt and unlocked the secret of the oyramids, and/or to Greece and studied.
3. He went to England and studied the great knowledge of the Druids.
4. In his early 20s he went to Japan, studied, and returned to Judea when he was 29 years old. He switched places with a younger brother and fled back to Japan, married, had 3 daughters, and he died at 106 years of age. Physical evidence was an ancient burial mound in the town of Shingo. In the 1930s, a so-called 'will of Christ was discovered. It was either lost or destroyed in WW2.

The MIBs is the only agency of its kind in the world with a "Phenomenology Division" that exclusively researches areas dealing with all types of paranormal, supernatural, anomalous and metaphysical phenomena.
The MIBs have super technology and state-of-the-art equipment and other experimental technology that is not yet available to even government agencies. For decades now, the reporting of a UFO or alien encounter has often lead to a visit from two or three mysterous visitors, dressed in black, which threaten dire consequences if the person persists in talking about their experience.
The MIBs ride in big black limos, have oriential features, use stilted language reminiscient of old gangster films, wear black suits and dark sunglasses no matter what the weather is like.
THE MEN IN BLACK ARE REAL and most countries have them.

Have you ever pondered how long eternity is?
Multiply every strand of hair that was ever grown on every person, from the creation of Adam and Eve to the present, times 10,000
Multiply 10,000 every grain of sand along all of the seashores and coastlines throughout the entire world.
Multiply 10,000 times every snowflake and raindrop that ever fell from the creation of the world.
Multiply 10,000 times every star in all of the innumerable galaxies in the universe. GUESS WHAT........
But even then, if all those incalulably large numbers above were added together and that number would be years as we know it now, THAT WOULD ONLY BE THE FIRST SECOND IN ETERNITY!!!!
KNOW WHAT????? You face a very long eternity beyond the grave, which is so long you cannot even come close to humanly comprehending it!!!!!!

Aliens and UOs, what are they really? Are they technologically-advanced extraterrestrials from a distant planet, universe or dimension?
But, there is another deeper-and much darker, sinister-possibility! What if aliens and UFOs are really manipulative demons from hell who are deceiving humanity by simply pretending to be extraterrestrial life forms?
Some UFO scholars state these ETs are nothing less than demons in alien clothing. Grievously, many have and will succume to this seductive aroma of pseudo-enlightment [Mark 13:33].
The truth is out there. But are you willing to accept it, no matter what it is?

Good Friday is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified. The Bible does not explicitly state on which day of the week Jesus was crucified. The two widely held views, using a synthesis of both the Friday and Wednesday arguments, argue for Thursday as the day.
Arguments or the Friday are: [Mark 15:42; Matthew 16:21; Luke 9:22]. In the Jewish mind of the 1st century, a part of day was considered as a full day. Jesus was in the tomb for part of Friday, all of Saturday and part of Sunday - hence the 3 days in the tomb. In there for approximately 60 hours [2.5 days] if you believe it was Thursday.
Questions that come to mind:
1]. Where was Jesus or the 3 days between His death and resurrection?
2]. Who was responsible for Christ's death? [you may be surprised who].
3]. Why did Jesus have to experience so much suffering?

Something unusual I came across which I could have used in my book report last year in my World History class at college. Was Hitler a Christian? He was raised by a skeptic Catholic father and a devout Catholic mother till the day of his death. He attended the Benedictine Monastery School [1897-1898] he was at the top of his class.
It was Joseph Goebbels opinion that Hitler was "deeply religious but entirely anti-Christian." Cardinal Michael von aulhaber, wrote in a conidential report that Hitler "undoubtedly lives in belie in God and that he recogbizes Christianity as the builder of western culture."
Hitler relaxes on the beach getting a sun tan.
Even Nazi General Gerhard Engel reported in 1941 that Hitler stated, "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so!" In church he was a communicant and an altar boy. He was confirmed as a "soldier of Christ." He even wanted to become a priest at that time. He often wrote of his love for the church and the clergy. He even worked closely with Pope Pius and Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo to bring Christianity to Germanic society.
Something went wrong and changed his entire life, was it Satan?
It must be stated here that I do not agree with what Hitler did during the war, nor do I like him. Its just that he makes for a great study of character.

A soul in certain spiritual traditions is the incorporeal essence of a person, living thing, or object. Many spiritual and philosophical systems teach that only humans have souls, while others teach that all living things, and even inanimate objects, i.e., rivers have souls.
A Dr. Duncan MacDougall,M.D. tried to weight the soul as the patient died. The results were meaningless with no scientiic merit.
The French physician Hippolyte Baraduc claimed to have photographed the soul. Some professional photographers have disputed the images. The following image is let up to you to decide if the image can be reproduced here.
