Essential Spiritual Fitness Program (eSFP): Part 2: The Harrowing of Hell/Hades - w/host Paul Rakowicz
Saturday, February 14, 2015 AD, 11:00 AM EST
On my podcast last week I covered the first resurrection which occurred on Good Friday as a result of the immediate efficacy of Christ's blood. It's available here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/.../esfp-the-descent-into.... This Saturday at 11:00 am I'll be continuing to discuss this very subject.
I know that in modern day preterism there is a desire to deny the first resurrection, separated from the second by 40 years, but scripture, and the early and historic church, show otherwise.
What I showed last Saturday, and will demonstrate further tomorrow, is that the spiritual resurrection of the saints occurred on Good Friday, and remains to believers of every generation at their birth or upon their conversion, as does the second resurrection, or the judgment, which we all face as we pass from this life to the next. This is then the second death for the unbeliever.
Christ's descent into hell - harrowing of hell - plundering of hell/hades is one of my favorite subjects because it provides clarity for so many other doctrines of our faith.
Join us each Saturday...
The Virtuous Life
“Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’ And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ But he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!’ But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”
Grindhouse Veterans JOHN LINK & EDWARD X YOUNG angrily demand to know why The Academy Awards®, of February 22, 2015, in their televised Memoriam refused to acknowledge the passing of CARLA LAEMMLE, who died on June 12, 2014 at the age of 104! Carla Laemmle was the niece of Universal Studios founder, Carl Laemmle; her screen career spanned over 90 years from the silent classic, "The Phantom of the Opera" (1925), to her final role in 2014; and she has the first spoken line in the first talkie horror movie ever made, "Dracula" (1931). • Also snubbed, inexplicably, was beloved comedienne JOAN RIVERS, who hosted the pre-Oscar® Red Carpet show for years, in which she playfully mocked the pompous hoopla of the night. Joan Rivers omission from the tribute must have been borne out of revenge and hatred for her satire! • JULIANNE MOORE copped a Best Actress statuette for STILL ALICE; but she really deserved it for David Cronenberg's MAPS TO THE STARS. However, the supercilious & Scientologist-ridden Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences would never give kudos to a picture made by a foreign-based horror film director that horrifically castigates Hollywood Hierarchy for their decadence & depravity! • Independent horror movie producer, Cameron Scott joins John Link & Edward X Young in their rant.
Death has always been humanity’s enemy. It brings loneliness, sadness, disorientation. But it need not be a mystery nor be entirely devastating. Even though it is inevitable, death is not the end. Though at times death seems unfair and arbitrary, it does not thwart God’s plan for eternal life. Through a resurrection God will reunite us with family and friends and extend His promises to all who have ever lived. Eventually there will come a time when death itself will be banished. Writing about the resurrection that will take place when Jesus returns, Paul
paraphrased from the book of Hosea: “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’ ‘O Death, where is your sting? O Hades [grave] where is your victory?’” (1 Corinthians 15:53-55).

Meet Louise Patterson. She's dead. She's also in Hell: A place where everyone must face the challenges of being damned.

When Louise was alive, she was one of those “Go Big or Go Home” kinda people. As an underworld dweller, she’s getting used to the fact that living “larger than life” may have had some not-so-great consequences in the afterlife. That is until she loses her job in Hell. In her search for gainful employment in Central City, Hades, she finds a post-it note that gives her something to look forward to for the first time since arriving down below. Louise discovers the “Second Chance Temp Agency” along with its enigmatic CEO Mr. Deedy, who gives her so much more than a job. Foul-mouthed and seemingly unlucky, Louise gets pulled into a truly Hellacious adventure--filled with demons, ghosts, angels, magic, temp jobs, wardrobe malfunctions, and quite possibly…redemption.

Who is God? Where is God? What is God? Why is God? These questions have been asked for thousands and thousands of years with no immediate answers coming to mind. Except those manufactured in the mind of man, woman and child. We have created the gods in our own images. We are terrified of Dante's Inferno. It is child abuse to teach these children of Hell, fire and brimstone. We live in the deep bowels of the matrix. We exist in a well formed vaccuum. We continue to search for questions to answers. Join us tonight as we probe the depths of doubt and climb the mountains of mystery and intrigue.
On Thursday May 2ist, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present an interview with British author and magician Jake Stratton-Kent. Jake Stratton-Kent is especially noted for his defense and support of the Goetic aspect of ceremonial magick and his research linking this practice to the deities and oracles of ancient Greek mythology, especially the denizens of the underworld or Tartarus ruled by Hades or Pluto. He is more partial to the Grimorium Verum than the Goetia or Lesser Key of Solomon although he stresses that both are essentially Goetic from the ancient Greek word "Goes" meaning a necromancer. So if you want to meet a master of art magical, tune in and spend an hour with maestro Jake Stratton-Kent.
Pantheon and the Birth of Christian Mythology
Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades – These names once represented the most powerful and revered names in a Pantheon of innumerable Greek Gods and Goddesses. But with the arrival of the One True God the countless deities of the pagan world have all but disappeared, now relegated to the realm of myth and legend. And while time has faded these legends, they have found a new and enduring home in the teaching of Christianity. In fact, many Christians of today would be alarmed to know just how many of the truths they accept as Biblical fact actually have “NO” basis in scripture. But if many of the Judeo Christian views of Heaven, Hell, life and death – even Good and Evil are based on the corrupt teachings of the pagan world - then how can we look to these teachings as a guide to salvation? Join us today for another installment of “From Darkness to Light” as we use the Biblical word of God and the teachings of our One True Lord Jesus Christ to cast down the Gods of Olympus Forever!
