Most believers know that I ascended to Heaven and led captivity captive and gave gifts to men. However, there is not much said about My descending to the lower parts of the Earth. Peter described that event.
I went in the spirit and preached to the spirits that were in prison who were disobedient during the days of Noah while he prepared the ark. Those spirits had not heard the good news that I came to redeem the world from Satan's grip.
Peter shared My heart when he said that it is not My will that any should perish, but that all come to repentance. I preached the gospel to those who were dead so that they could live according to God in the spirit. What Peter wrote reveals My longsuffering with mankind. Pray for those you know who have not yet come to repentance and received Me as their Lord and Savior.
