Andrew Wommack Devotional 8 December 2021 – Abraham’s Bosom – Written By Andrew Wommack Ministries

TOPIC: Abraham’s Bosom

SCRIPTURE: Luke 23:43 ‘And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.’

MESSAGE

The paradise that Jesus spoke of must have been the same place that Jesus called ‘Abraham’s bosom,’ when He told the story of the rich man and Lazarus. Jesus descended into the lower parts of the earth after His death, and John 20:17 shows that it was some time after His resurrection before Jesus ascended back to His Father. Therefore, this paradise was ‘Abraham’s bosom’ located in ‘sheol’ in the lower parts of the earth.

The phrase ‘led captivity captive’ from Ephesians 4:8, refers to Jesus liberating the Old Testament saints. When Old Testament saints died, they went to a place in the center of the earth which is called ‘Sheol’ in Hebrew.

It is the Hebrew word ‘Sheol’ that is translated ‘hell’ in Psalm 16:10, which prophecies Jesus saying, ‘For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption (Acts 2:27-30).

The ungodly dead also went to ‘Sheol’ but the teaching of Jesus in Luke 16:19-31 shows that there was a great gulf fixed between the two, and those in torment (hell) envied those who were enjoying the blessings of the Lord in the part of ‘Sheol’ that was called Abraham’s bosom or Paradise.

Even though these Old Testament saints were blessed, they were not able to enter into the presence of the Lord because the atonement of Christ had not been completed. So, in that sense, they were captives. When Jesus died, He descended into ‘Sheol’ and took the captives captive. He took them to heaven, into the very presence of God and vacated that part of ‘Sheol.’ Now, all that’s left in ‘Sheol’ is hell. In the New Testament, the Greek word that is used to refer to this area is ‘hades’ and it is only applied to the place of torment.
