SIH HALTAL ICONFor Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:  By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.  The like figure whereunto [even] baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:  Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.   (1 Peter 3:18-22)

For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread:  And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.  After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me.  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.   (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

  1. Julie Garro says:

    My denomination only celebrates the Lord’s Supper once a month. I do wish it were more often. This is such a special time, and so important.

    • Rob Barkman says:

      I can certainly understand your point and agree, it certianly is a great blessing everytime we partake of it.. As long as we can keep the Supper fresh each time it would be a blessing. However for some they feel as if the Supper when observed frequently ends up loosing its uniqueness and just becomes a part of the “worship routine”. Your heart is a good example of one who has their priorities in order and observes the Lord with the proper spirit. However, sad to say, that is not the case with all of us. There are some who can forget its true meaning and its great importance. Lord bless you, Julie. Thanks for the comments.

    Amen…great post. Question…what prison? and held by whom?

    • Rob Barkman says:

      Hi D.R.,
      You’ve asked some very good questions.

      Q. What prison?
      A. The place of eternal punishment commonly called the Lake of Fire.

      Q. Held By Whom?
      A. Our Just Lord who punishes the sin of lost mankind by sending those who reject Christ to eternal punishment.

      May I add two more questions to help clarify this text….

      Q. Who did the preaching?
      A. Noah, through the leadership of the Holy Spirit, was a witness of the Lord and salvation.

      Q. To whom was Noah preaching?
      A. Lost mankind who was living on the earth in Noah’s day, but died in the flood and was in the Lake of Fire at the time Peter wrote the book of 1 Peter.

      I hope this helps a bit to understand this very confusing passage.

      Again thanks so much for your questions D.R.
