Easter Day 7 is one that I truly love reading about. It is the day when Christ organized the spirit world.
Today I would like to quote a talk I found while researching the seventh day.
“….Peter mentioned some of the happenings of that seventh day:
“For 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; …
“For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.” (1 Pet. 3:18–19; 1 Pet. 4:6.)
While the Savior was still on the cross, he had hinted concerning some of his actions in the immediate future, for he had promised the repentant thief, “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43.) Earlier in his ministry the Savior had prophesied concerning his activities in the post-earthly spirit world:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
“For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
“And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.” (John 5:25–28.)”
