Jesus became full flesh because of the purpose of death and of hell for man. -Gbile Akanni
We need to understand the reason Jesus died and also went to hell. Why He became obedience to death even the death of the cross. Jesus work was not to die alone but to also go to hell for our sake. There was a reason He visited hell.
- The covenant that the wicked one made
The wicked one said some things against us which we need to see. For us to be saved and to belong to God, Jesus must come down for these two purpose.
Isaiah 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
28:15 Because ye have said, WE HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH DEATH, AND WITH HELL ARE WE AT AGREEMENT; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
For man to be free from this, Jesus had to come and death and then visit hell because without Him solving these two things we may never have been free.
- The covenant of death
- The agreement with hell
That’s why you see scripture says that Jesus became obedience to death.
Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, even the death of the cross.
He did this so that He can taste death for every man
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; THAT HE BY THE GRACE OF GOD SHOULD TASTE DEATH FOR EVERY MAN.
We understand that He destroyed him that had the power of death, the devil.
Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, that is, the devil;
We understand that Jesus went to hell and he collected the keys of death and hell.
Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the KEYS OF HELL AND OF DEATH.
By this freedom from the devil He made us free from sin and then to live unto righteousness
Romans 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
Jesus has made us from be power of sin and death. He went to hell so that He can taste death for us all! And by this, He made us to be one with God.
