QUESTION: "Is heaven and hell existing before Jesus Christ came to the world because it was when he was going back to heaven he said he go prepare a place for us?"


Pastor's response...

ANSWER: "ANSWER: Heaven and hell existed before Jesus came. However then there were no human spirits in heaven. When people died then they went to a place called Hades. In Hades there were two compartments; the two were Abrahams bosom and Hell. Hell was where the wicked departed human spirits were kept and Abraham's bosom was where the righteous departed human spirits were kept. (You will see this clearly depicted in the story of the rich man and Lazarus, the rich man could look over from his side and see Lazarus at the other side) When Jesus died and resurrected, he took the righteous departed spirits with him to heaven for the first time. which is where the righteous ones will go until the second coming of Christ. See the story of the Rich Man & Lazarus: Luke 16:19-31 "
