Here is a wonderful explanation of John 3:13 by the great man of God, Pastor J. Vernon McGee ...And now He says, "No man hath ascended up to heaven." That is the answer to those today who feel that Elijah and Enoch went to heaven when they were translated. I don’t think so because up to this point the Lord Jesus says that no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man which is in heaven. In other words, He is saying that He is the only One who can speak about heaven because He is the only One who has ascended up to heaven. Now it is true that there are a host of folk who have gone to heaven after Christ, but in the Old Testament, when a saint of God died, one of God’s own, he went to a place that is called Paradise or Abraham’s Bosom—our Lord called it that (see Luke 16:22). It was not until after Christ died and ascended to heaven and led captivity captive that He took those who were in Paradise into the presence of God in heaven. Since then, for the child of God, it has always been "… absent from the body … present with the Lord" (2 Cor. 5:8). But when Jesus was here, no other man had ascended to heaven. -SOURCE: Thru The Bible, with Pastor J. Vernon McGee.
But Hades is much more than just a place of Torment. It is strongly believed by most Bible students and theologians that Hades is compartmentalized into two separate places: Paradise on one side, and the place of Torment on the other. The place of Paradise is commonly called Abraham's bosom (cf. Acts 16:19-31). OT saints were not permitted into Heaven yet, for Christ had not paid the price of redemption yet. Old Testament saints viewed Sheol as the place of the dead, or the Realm of the Dead. I've heard Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses, all attempt to deny the existence of a burning literal Hell, saying that Sheol merely means “the grave.” The truth is that Sheol refers to the grave and everything beyond it as well, Heaven or Hell. Scriptural proof is found in Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” In contend that if the wicked are turned into Hell, and Sheol (Hell) only means the grave, then where do the righteous go? Do the wicked and the righteous both go to the grave? If that's the case, then Psalms 9:17 makes no sense at all and sounds retarded. The very fact that the wicked go to Hell implies that the righteous go somewhere much nicer, which is, Paradise! So clearly, Sheol (Hades) means much more than mere death and burial in a grave. Sheol refers to the spiritual world beyond the grave as well.
They Hated Me Without A CauseBy David J. Stewart"They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause." -Psalm 109:3Daniel, who was conspired against by evil men and cast into the lion's den. Daniel was hated without a cause.Jesus quoted Psalm 109:3 in John 15:25 concerning Himself... "But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause." Jesus was hated without a cause. Very few people are honest enough to admit that they simply hate someone. Most people who are hateful look for a reason, any reason, to justify their hatred. In Matthew 12:10 we read, "And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him." The Pharisees were a hypocritical bunch I'll tell you. In Matthew 12:10 they were trying to find a reason to accuse Jesus. They hated Jesus' goodness, and therefore wanted to find fault in Him. The world is filled with such people today, who seek to justify their hatred of the righteous. We work beside them in the workplace. We meet them in public. We even find them in our churches. They hate without a cause!The Pharisees and the lawyers of Jesus' time were no different than the same cut-throat type of people today. In Luke 7:33-34 Jesus said, "For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!" No matter what we do as Christians, some people will hate us without cause, and will search diligently to find excuses to justify their hatred. We'll be damned if we do, and damned if we don't. The hypocrites of Jesus' day were always looking for reasons to discredit, attack, and embarrass Him. This is the sinful nature of man. Again, in John 8:5-6 we read concerning the maliciousness of the scribes and Pharisees ... "Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him." Over and over in the Bible, we read about those who were hated without cause. In Genesis 37:5, we read concerning Joseph ... "And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more." Joseph did nothing wrong; yet he was hated fiercely by his jealous brothers. We read also of the prophet Daniel, in Daniel 6:3-5, who was hated without a cause ... "Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God."I know what it is like to be hated without a cause. I know what it's like for a small group of instigators to go out of their way to harass me on the job. I had complained at my job about employees bringing pornography into the workplace. I told management that it was offensive to me as a Christian. My co-workers were deliberately leaving porn centerfolds lying out in the break area to antagonize and disrespect me. So I complained about it. The employees were told not to bring anymore pornography to work. So the men started bringing in Maxim magazine instead, which is very close to Playboy. I also complained about that, and my boss argued with me whether it was "porn" or not. I went over his head to his boss, and it became a sexual harassment issue. The Maxim magazines disappeared fast. As you can imagine, my co-workers had even more contempt for me after that (and they started the whole thing in the first place). As months went by, there was a big meeting with all the employees, the union president, my boss, and the big guy in charge. They basically roasted me in the meeting. I felt like Joseph being sold into slavery by his ten brothers. One guy said I needed a psychiatrist. The union president said I needed to "grow thicker skin." The top guy said there was something wrong with me. I kid you not. Another employee suggested that I "swallow my pride." It was a witch-hunt. I had been the victim of repeated harassment by a few individuals over a period of a couple years, and management blindly took their side. I had perfect attendance for over 2-years. I had never been written-up or scolded for poor job performance. I did my job. I never messed with anybody. I was an excellent employ--but they hated me without a cause. They'd harass me in subtle ways, such that if I complained to management it made me look bad. Day after day, month after month, year after year ... being harassed. The truth behind their hatred came out in the big meeting, when one of the men pulled out 3 Gospel Chick Tracts he had found in the workplace and handed them over to management, saying ... "We were told we couldn't bring pornography into the workplace anymore; but these things offend me as much as pornography." Ironically, one of the Gospel tracts was "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE!" Jesus said in Luke 7:23, "And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me." Can you imagine that man's face on judgment day, when God shows him his past, on the day that he said a Gospel tract was as offensive to him as pornography? I wouldn't want to be in that man's shoes. I know what it means to be hated without a cause. "The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth." -Psalm 37:12"Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!" -Luke 17:1How to Go to HeavenYe Must Be Born Again!
" JESUS DIED FOR THE UNGODLY SO THAT THEIR SINS COULD BE FORGIVEN AND WHEN THEY DIE THEY'D GO TO HEAVEN SO DON'T TELL ME THAT GOD HATES PEOPLE HE LOVES US ALL BUT HE HATES SIN ...HE LOVES THE SINNER BUT HATES THEIR SINS "- John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.©fonsito2020

" IT TRULY DOES SUCK THAT BEING A BELIEVER WOULD MAKE PEOPLE HATE YOU ONLY BECAUSE YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD AND STAND UP FOR WHAT'S TRUE AND RIGHT. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY GOD DOES WHAT HE DOES BUT I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN OF TURNING MY BACK ON HIM OUT OF FEAR OF THAT OF PEOPLE HATING ME CALLING ME A HYPOCRITE BECAUSE I DON'T LIVE UP TO THEIR SELF RIGHTEOUS STANDARDS THOSE ARE THE TRUE HYPOCRITES ETC. AGAIN FOR I TRULY KNOW NOTHING I'M ONLY PART OF HIS CREATION HE'S THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS HIS WAY OF THINKING IS DIFFERENT FROM US HUMANS. IT'S FOOLISH TO COMPARE OUR OWN REASONING WITH NOT JUST ANY god BUT THE ONE TRUE GOD THE GOD OF ISRAEL THE GOD OF MOSES , ABRAHAM, JACOB , ISSAC, SAMSON, NOAH, ESTHER AND OTHERS HIS NAME IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HE IS THE TRUTH THE WAY AND THE LIFE THE ONLY ROAD TO THE FATHER IN HEAVEN AND TO HIS KINGDOM "©fonsito2020
